I never used a strict macrobiotic diet for lyme, but I do eat rice almost every day, and veggies certainly every day.
I lowered the amount of meat, but I do need meat, in small amounts, I feel.
macrobiotic diet demands a lot of time, also for eating: chewing very slowly, hundreds of times, eating in certain orders...
As it is also gluten free, only that could be a good point for lyme, in my feeling.
Many alternative treatments used for cancer are the EXACT same alternative treatments used for chronic lyme.
And many lyme sufferers will end up with cancer, that means, they suffer from very similar immune problems.
In my opinion, then, what helps one disease, may help the other.
Look at this list:
Alkalinization is one such double approaches we hear for lyme AND cancer.
Rife machines (used for both).
mycoplasma treatment (80% of cancer cells seem to have been DIRECTLY linked to mycoplasma)
Transfer factor to modulate immune system (both)
intravenous vit C therapy
hyperbaric oxygen therapies
curcumin, alpha lipoic acid, etc are supplements used by both communities
UV blood irradiation and Ozone therapy: used by chronic infections and cancer
heavy metals and chemical chelations: used for both
cannabis oil or derivatives.. : both
Ashwaganda, Boswellia, Neem
root canal treatments
The logic of macrobiotic is to give the body a rest while still eating. You're right.
That is also my impression, when you eat a macrob meal, in the macrobiotics way (chewing, in order...) you feel it goes down so easily!
The body will have less trouble digesting, so more energy will be available for other things, such as natural healing.
I think of macrobiotic like almost FASTING, while still you eat!
