Hello my fellow lymies,
Long story short.....my mother has lyme disease but doesn't acknowledge it as such. My mom got lyme a year before my symptoms started. I got sick only after visiting her (a year after she got sick). I believe it's the various vectors that can carry lyme that live in and around her house.
The difference is I got tested where I now have proof of my lyme disease however my mom never went this route.
I now live with her (in a totally different house) and she is always complaining about
different symptoms. She has arthritis in her fingers, a bum knee, dizzy spells, fatigue, and somewhat frequent sleep disturbances (she mentioned to me recently, now matter how much sleep she gets it's not restful). All things that didn't occur before lyme.
I always try to inform her of what I do (or have done) for these very lymie symptoms that helped me. But subconsciously she has always semi-dismissed it because to her we don't have the same thing (but we do of course).
However, she is now finally coming around. After 3 years she getting really fed up with these symptoms is now
open to lyme related herbs.
I already have her on a lot of the same supplements I take, Vit D, E, zinc, and EGCG. And I mentioned how I can get an herb that helps with the lack of energy. We wont get too crazy with all this lyme stuff but just an herb specifically for this. And she agreed.
So the point of this post is to get other people's recommendation of what herbs are best for specifically fatigue and providing higher energy levels.
Thanks in advance.
