It is truly enjoyable to be able to go outside and do some activities whenever the weather is nothing short of wonderful as it is during the warm seasons of spring and summer. Still, these days it is almost impossible to go head out without thinking of using protection too. We all are aware of the importance of wearing sunscreen so we do not get sunburned. Also, depending where we live or the area we go, we have to remember about the vicious, blood sucking or teeth biting bugs because the last thing we want is to subject ourselves to itchy bumps -- or something worse. A simple bite from the wrong bug can potentially weaken our immune system and overall health.
Lyme disease, for example, is a vector disease caused by infectious deer ticks (black-legged tick) that transmit bacterium, known as Borrelia burgdorferi, to hosts such as people or dogs. If the bacterium is left untreated, it travels to the bloodstream until it reaches the tissues. The inflammatory disease may be localized on the skin only if it is caught early, but it can have systemic effects and spread beyond the tissues to the nervous system, joints, and possibly organs.
What are the Symptoms?
The CDC and Prevention believe that 300,000 individuals contract Lyme disease annually. Lyme disease is more common than most people would think! It is found nearly two times more compared to women diagnosed with breast cancer, and six times higher than those diagnosed with HIV/AIDS every year. Anyone of any age is susceptible to getting Lyme disease if they travel to areas that are abundant in ticks, such as wooded and grassy locations.
Most people are not aware they were bitten by the tick because it is often painless. Ticks do not feed and leave like mosquitoes do though, they latch onto a host for days at a time. The longer they stay undisturbed, the higher your chances are of contracting illnesses and disease. A rash is one of the first signs to appear; keep in mind the actual onset is between 3-30 days after the bite. The cardinal sign, after the rash lightens and expands, is the "bull's-eye" target appearance.

Lyme disease is also referred to as "The Great Imitator" since the symptoms can mimic various other diseases, making it difficult to properly diagnose it. As previously mentioned, it can affect the entire body and reach areas like the brain. Common misdiagnoses are depression, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, pr other psychiatric illnesses. If a woman is pregnant, Lyme disease can transfer to the baby.
What Treatment Options Are Available?
Ideally you want to catch Lyme disease early as it is easily treatable that way. If it progresses, it can be tougher. Antibiotics are the primary drug of choice to Lyme disease; however, there are some cases where it may not work for some and it can be expensive. Others may not like the idea of using medication and look to find ways they can treat Lyme disease naturally.
Baltic Essentials Amber is an excellent choice for those who are looking for natural remedies for the disease. Not only that, the best form of treatment is always prevention, right? Our necklace and bracelet amber products can be bought as a necklace or bracelet, and may be worn any time.
Baltic Essentials Amber Can Treat Lyme Disease Naturally
The primary reason why Baltic Essentials Amber works is because it has anti-inflammatory properties and can directly treat issues someone may have regarding pain, redness, arthritis, swelling, and cognitive complications. The succinic acid found in amber is wonderful for combating fungal, bacterial, viral, and parasitic infections (as with Lyme disease). The succinic acid becomes activated after it is transferred to the body when it is worn over the skin. Baltic Essentials Amber can also help renew energy levels in a person ridden with fatigue because it is capable of restoring energy balance at a cellular level. It is perfect to wear anytime as either a method of prevention or to treat Lyme disease naturally if you or someone you know has it.
