Herbal Tea Recipes to Fight Lyme Disease

Herbal Tea Recipes to Fight Lyme Disease

I came across this interesting presentation that dates back to September of 2006 written by Wendy Snow Fogg from Misty Meadows Herbal Center: http://www.mistymeadows.org/wendydocs/Lyme%20Disease.pdf. The document has interesting case studies with positive results.

There are recipes with excellent instructions for Lyme Prevention, Chronic Lyme Treatment and various versions (with raw honey or without) and detailed description of the herbs used in the teas.

There are many versions of Wendy’s teas and different types of tea suggested for helping with symptoms such as chamomile tea, white tea, green tea and various mint teas. Following is an anti-microbial/immune regulating medicinal herbal tea formula based on Stephen Buhner’s Healing Lyme protocol.

Put into one gallon water:
1) Japanese Knotweed 10g
(increase dose slowly, 10g per week or so, up to 40g)
2) Stephania 20g (increase slowly up to 80g)
3) Sarsaparilla 10g (increase slowly to 40g)
4) Cat’s Claw 15g (increase slowly to 60g)
5) Red Root 10g (can increase slowly to 30g)

optional:
-Artemesia Annua 5g (increase slowly to 40g) use especially if suspicion of Babesia)
-Eleutherococcus Genseng at a starting dose of 10g can be helpful for fatigue,(but it may be troublesome for some with chronic lyme).

My two favorite sources for bulk herbs and tinctures are 1st Chinese Herbs and Mountain Rose Herbs.

    Wendy Fogg also sells a tea based on Buhner’s protocol. I loved it and I felt it helped my smptoms. Several others were drinking the tea at the same time as me. I had to eventually stop as my gut started to have issues and I couldn’t handle much of anything. You can get it at her site MistyMeadows.org

    Herbal tea is made from many plants, using not just the leaves, but also the flowers, roots, bark and seeds. At Celestial Seasonings, our herbal tea recipes blend the flavors of different botanicals from around the world – resulting in an infinite variety of healthful taste sensations. In fact, this exploration of the many flavors, remedies and benefits of herbal teas is one of the greatest pleasures of working with herbs — there’s an herbal tea that’s just right for every mood and every moment. ^

    I’ve used those same herbs, in those amounts only my practitioner had me make the tea differently – but it healed a 40 year Lyme infection. I’ve been off of the treatment for 1 yr and 11 months now and through a ton of stress, and have yet to have any symptoms return! It took a lot of support for my body to heal, and there is some permanent damage that was done, but I’m better now than I’ve ever been!
