Gastro-Intestinal Problems with Lyme Disease

Due to the symbiotic relationship between parasites and Lyme disease, there are many gastrointestinal (GI) problems associated with Lyme disease. They can range from extreme loose stools and be mistaken as IBS, or the other extreme of constipation, especially if you are taking strong doses of antibiotics.

Lyme experts agree that anyone with Lyme disease should take Magnesium Malate on a regular basis.

For intestinal health in general but especially to counteract the damage antibiotics cause to healthy bacteria in the intestines, a probiotic should be taken a few hours after last evening dose so it can slowly move through the intestines while you sleep. Most experts agree that the most powerful and effective probiotic is Therelac.

Problems may arise from the Lyme infection itself, herxheimer reaction and/or reaction to medication.  Special problems with diarrhea develop due to detoxification also.

For the sake of simplicity, I will not endeavor to distinguish between causes, and try to focus on the best solutions.
