I think it is all about
the nutrition. Lyme messes with absorption and utilization of nutrients eaten, so when treatment is given, the absorption likely improves, thus resulting in nails/hair that grow faster. My nails didn't grow much & I was losing my hair before getting all of my nutrition through my PICC/via IV...I think it was about
2-3 months into the IV nutrition, my nails started growing like crazy and my hair quit falling out & started growing back.
