22 Jul Lyme Disease and Holistic Dentistry
“From May through July, people will get more tick bites and tick-borne diseases than any other time of year in the United States,” according to the CDC. Each year there are more than 30,000 cases of Lyme disease reported, while research suggests that the number is pushing more than 10x that. This incredibly high number continues to rise, and the symptoms can have a negative effecton your everyday life.
If you are diagnosed with Lyme disease, you should know that it is more than the flu-like symptoms you hear about and it affects the whole body. Your body is under attack and the balance in your systems is being threatened. The infections combined with the constant flux of your immune system strength, the bacterium can now flourish, and your symptoms may become chronic. When you have Lyme Disease there is nothing more important than ridding your body of harmful bacteria and toxins. A great place to begin is with a holistic dentist.
“Why,” you may ask? Simply put, the mouth is a direct passage to the body. Here, at Posh Dental we strive to aid your body’s natural healing mechanisms to help you overcome oral infections and Lyme disease.
