I do not have Lyme disease but get bitten by ticks several times a year so it does have my interest. I read some claims that a 'tincture of teasel root extracts' or similar can be used to cure Lyme disease (i.e. infection with Borrelia Burgdorferi) or at least relieve symtpoms. However I seem to be unable to find any scientific evidence. Is there any?
Teasel Root is used for healing from Lyme Disease and for good reason http://www.tiredoflyme.com/teasel-root.html
Matthew explains that instead of killing the bacteria itself, it actually changes the environment in the body in order to engage the body's own capabilities to kill off Lyme bacteria. http://www.lyme-disease-research-database.com/lyme_disease_blog_files/mathew-wood.html
In Mr. Wood's experience, 100% of the Lyme patients he has treated with teasel have had immediate relief from symptoms http://www.lymediseaseresource.com/Teasel.html (also contains a link to a book by said Mr. Wood)
