Infrared Therapy for Lyme Disease
Reduce Lyme Disease Symptoms with Infrared Therapy at BodyWorks & Laser Clinic
Lyme disease is the most commonly reported insect transmitted illness in the US, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with more than 30,000 Americans contracting the disease every year. It is caused by a bacterium called Borrelia burgdorferi, which is spread through an infected tick bite. The earliest sign you have contracted Lyme disease is a rash resembling a bullseye. Other symptoms include fever, stiff neck, fatigue, chills, muscle/joint pain, and headache. Sufferers from Lyme can experience lifelong debilitating and persistent effects such as arthritis, severe fatigue, extreme muscle/joint pain, headaches, gastrointestinal distress, sudden deafness, limb numbness, muscle weakness, reflex problems, and severe neurological deficits.
Antibiotics are the most common treatment for Lyme; however, they are not always effective. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for patients to continue to experience symptoms even after antibiotic treatment. This is why many Lyme sufferers search for other methods to find relief from their symptoms. Multiple studies show Sunlighten Infrared Sauna Therapy is one highly beneficial approach you can take to help alleviate the symptoms of Lyme.
How does Infrared Therapy treat Lyme disease?
LYME IS SENSITIVE TO HEAT – Many healthcare providers and natural practitioners recommend infrared sauna therapy because Lyme bacterium is extremely sensitive to heat. While heat does not always kill the bacterium, it helps disable it, resulting in a decrease of symptoms.
SUPPORTS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM – Many with Lyme disease suffer with immune suppression, which makes it difficult to recover. Infrared promotes increased circulation, which improves cell health and boosts immunity to help battle and flush out Lyme.
ASSISTS ANTIBIOTICS – Research shows infrared increases body temperature and promotes circulation, which invigorates the body, allowing antibiotics to reach all parts of the body, especially tissues and muscle where high concentrations of prescribed medications are difficult to achieve.
AIDS IN THE DETOXIFICATION PROCESS – Lyme bacterium often creates a buildup of toxins that are not able to be expelled through the body’s natural process, as the liver and kidneys are already carrying a high toxic burden from the Lyme infection. This accumulation of toxins leads to fatigue and feeling “unwell”. Our sauna has been clinically shown to raise core temperature 3 degrees to achieve detoxification quickly, expelling toxins before they reach major organs.
REDUCES PAIN – Lyme disease causes the immune system to launch a profound inflammatory response, which causes varying types of pain. Infrared increases blood circulation by penetrating deep into the body’s muscles and tissues to allow more oxygen to reach affected areas, reducing the inflammation associated with Lymes, which in turn reduces pain.
RELAXES MUSCLES AND JOINTS – Infrared increases circulation and blood flow relaxing muscles and joints and decreasing stiffness.
SLEEP BETTER – Acoustic Resonance Therapy offered during our infrared sessions, provides a calming environment to reduce stimuli and induce relaxation for better sleep.
DECREASE SOUND SENSITIVITY – ART (Acoustic Resonance Therapy), included within our infrared session, effectively balances brain waves, reducing hyperacusis (an increased sensitivity to sound and low tolerance for surrounding noise).
If you are suffering from the residual effects of Lyme disease, Infrared Therapy at BodyWorks & Laser Clinic will help provide you with significant relief.
