Neem for Lyme Disease

I was diagnosed with chronic lyme disease 6 months ago. I've been on a ton of antibiotics and still very sick. Lyme disease is spreading right now faster than the aids virus, yet doctors are experimenting to find out how to cure it with different antibiotics.

The bacteria get deep into the system and is very hard to get rid of once it's in for a while. I was misdiagnosed for over 3 years. It's a disease that mimics alot of other diseases unfortunately. So it's very hard for doctors to diagnose.

But my question is, do you see this helping with fighting these various bacteria and co-infections associated with lyme disease?
Thanks so much for your help.

Neem and Lyme Disease
by: Birgit

Thanks for educating us a bit about lyme disease. I have to admit that I am not familiar with it, I just know the name.

Please note that the following is not intended as medical advice. Just my thoughts and what I found on the subject. Do discuss this with your doctor.

I just did a search across existing medical literature and to date there has been no research into the effects of neem on lyme disease.

But I would think, given what we know about the effects of neem leaf on bacteria in general and on the immune system, that regular consumption of fresh or dried leaf or neem tea could very well have a very beneficial effect.

It is something that I would certainly try if I was battling this disease.

Since you don't know how you will react, or whether lyme disease changes the way your body reacts to this herb, it is important that you start carefully, by taking very little.

You should also discuss it with your doctor first.

In India, we take fresh neem leaves, make a paste of say a tea spoonful and down it with a glass of butter milk. If not drink it with water, then take a bit of yoghurt. A one month course should get rid of any bacteria infection and also act against certain virus. Fresh neem leaves are effective, dried leaves or oil can not be that potent.

Neem has been used for it's benefit for around 3000 years. It can cause gut irritation therefore butter milk, milk or ghee should be taken with it.
