Understanding Lyme Disease: Causes, Symptoms, and Prevention (Updated)

Treatment

Treatment can include a range of medications, therapies, and home remedies. Medications to treat Lyme disease can include antibiotics, analgesics, anti-inflammatories, and corticosteroids. These medications can help control the symptoms, as well as reduce the risk of developing more severe complications by targeting the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi.

Home remedies for Lyme disease include rest, hydration, and avoiding exposure to ticks. Herbal remedies and dietary changes can also help reduce symptoms and further reduce the risk of complications.

It is essential to discuss any treatment options you want to add, even if they are considered natural treatment, with a healthcare provider to ensure that the best possible treatment plan is developed for each individual situation.

Therapies such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy can also help manage Lyme disease symptoms when complications arise in the central nervous or musculoskeletal system
