Reduce Lyme Disease symptoms with MLD
Lyme disease is the number one vector borne spreading epidemic worldwide. Lyme disease occurs when a person is bitten by an infected tick. Lyme patients suffer from the tremendous physical and emotional pain associated with this disease.
In addition, due to the general lack of medical validation this type of illness, doctors and even their family members often believe they are crazy. Lyme is actually caused by a weak immune system, damaged cellular function, uncontrolled bacterial infections throughout the body and other environmental triggers such as, mold and parasites.

Detoxing through Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Detoxing is an integral part of beating Chronic Lyme Disease and minimizing the reactions caused when injured or dead bacteria release their endotoxins into the blood and tissues faster than the body can comfortably handle it. (Herx Reaction)
Benefits of MLD for Lyme Patients:
Immunity: First, the lymphatic system plays a major role in immune function. Improving lymphatic function is important when fighting disease.
Swelling and inflammation: Lymphatic drainage directly reduces swelling, thereby helping ease the discomfort and tenderness often associated with swollen lymph nodes. Additionally, lymphatic drainage can lower systemic inflammation, which can help with joint pain.
Nervous system: lymphatic drainage produces a parasympathetic response, meaning the nervous system enters its "rest and digest" state, where healing and rest can take place.
Herx detox reactions & Die-off symptoms: as Lyme disease is treated, the bacteria die off, often creating symptoms like brain fog, bloating, and fatigue. Lymphatic drainage helps move this debris and die-off out of the system more efficiently.
Digestion: lymphatic drainage assists in digestive function, which can help counteract the effects of antibiotics on the digestive tract.
Pain: lymphatic drainage has been shown to have an analgesic (pain-relieving) effect on the body due to its subtle, repetitive nature.
What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?
Lymphatic drainage is very gentle, using five grams of pressure or less in most areas. It is often described as deeply relaxing, and even hypnotic. It feels luxurious, but is very effective and can be an important component in a course of Lyme disease treatment. If you are suffering from Lyme disease, talk to your doctor about incorporating lymphatic drainage into your treatment process. In most cases, lymphatic drainage is safe to receive. On very rare occasions, your doctor may advise you to wait before beginning a series of sessions.
