Lyme Disease is actually a bacterial infection.
It is transmitted by the bite of a tick infected with bacterium called Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb) or the more common name, Spirochete. Ticks get the bacterium by biting infected wild animals, like deer, mice, birds. Most humans get infected from the bite of an immature tick, called a Nymph. An adult tick can also transmit the bacteria. The longer a tick stays attached to the body, the greater the chance you will be infected. The tick is generally attached to the body for 36 to 48 hours before the Lyme Disease bacterium can be transmitted by an infected tick. It is important to receive treatment early.
So what is the difference? An adult tick is easier to spot (size of sesame seed) and will more likely be removed before the bacteria is transmitted. A nymph tick (size of a poppy seed) is not as easy to spot as they are often found in the groin, armpits, and scalp. Most people who get a tick bite, do not contract Lyme Disease.
Early Signs & Symptoms:
Severe Chronic Symptoms:
Your body has a method to kill off certain bacteria and viruses sensitive to temperature. It's called a fever! The debate is interesting for Medical and Natural treatment professionals.
A Traditional steam or hot rock sauna heats the air, and then the superficial layers of the skin. The higher temperature of the air, can overwhelm those with cardiovascular or respiratory concerns, making it hard to breath and can be claustrophobic. They take a dedicated space in your home, and you can't take it to a new home easily.
A Portable Infrared Sauna technology heats the human body directly. The infrared light energy heats deeper levels of tissue in the body from the inside out. Your body will feel a soothing warmth as your body heats when the infrared light energy turns into heat.
In the case of Lyme Disease, incorporating the use of a Relax Infrared Sauna helps to improve the body's ability to function and fend off co-infections since the immune system may be compromised.
To provide effective treatments - It is critical the portable infrared sauna maintains a consistent temperature throughout. Many use a light strip at the back of the tent and DO NOT have a fan to circulate the heat.
Questions & Must Haves:
Does the portable sauna hold the heat for the entire time?
Does the portable sauna have cold spots?
Does the portable sauna circulate the heat in the tent?
Does the portable sauna heat fast?
Is it easy to clean and move?
Will the quality of the sauna heal your body and will it last?
What Professionals Say...
Dr. Catherine has had her Relax Sauna for over eight years. “I love my sauna. It works very well with all of my patients that I have, my clients that I have actually, and especially the ones that have Lyme disease, because bacteria dies at 104 1/2° core body temperature.
If used repeatedly and regularly it will open your body temperature enough so that your body temperature can raise to a 104 1/2° and kill off the bacteria and parasites also, and fungus and things in your blood and you will feel better after you kill all of that off and get it all out of your body.
I have many clients who have Lyme. And the extreme cases and an extreme protocol, that actually worked on several of my clients that are now Lyme free, has been this sauna, the Relax sauna. And what we do is, we put them in every four hours. We let them sleep all night, of course. Every four hours to five hours we put them in here for at least a week. And that opens their body up.”
In this video, she lays out the protocol that she uses with her clients and goes on to say, “That’s the easiest protocol I know of to get rid of Lyme, get your Lyme down, get yourself feeling better, get yourself looking better, get the toxins out. Use the sauna. The Relax sauna is great. I have hundreds of clients. I've been doing this since 2000. In eight years, there's a lot of people who go through my office. I love this. I would recommend this to anyone.
I use this every day, morning and night, twice a day, for maintenance. I’m in here for 20 minutes in the morning and 20 to 30 minutes at night and I get a good sweat. I like it. It's good. It gets out all the toxins and all the things that happen to you during the day. It's the easiest thing to do because I love to read so when I can catch up on my day’s work, my reading material and when I come out, using the sauna is great.”
Dr. Catherine goes on to say, “ You can do a lot of other things but that is why God gave us fever and heat. It’s the most natural way to get rid of so many things, not only Lyme but just so all the other parasites and fungus. It keeps virus… oh, my God, viruses do not like heat at all! So this will keep the virus down. All of you herpes people out there, and I know there's a ton of you, this keeps the virus down, all the different types of Herpes, Herpes 6, Herpes 8, Herpes 12, Herpes Simplex, all of it.”
Hippocrates said, “Give me a chance to create sweat and I can cure disease.” Dr. Catherine exclaims. “Absolutely. They knew. They knew.”
She goes on to describe how monitoring people's temperatures when they do the sauna is part of her protocol, as it gives her and her patients a scientific gauge as to how it is working. She also discusses how the program is tailored to people’s individual needs.
At the Lyme Conference every year, people there say that the Spirochetes Bacterium do not like heat. The spirochetes leave. “They die.”
Dr. Catherine: “The healthier the person, the better we are to each other, the more humane we are to each other, the better humanity is.”
What the People Say...
Casey, Lyme Disease & Mold Toxicity
The Relax Sauna is the first thing that has ever helped with Lyme Disease and Toxicity.
The Relax Sauna is the first thing that helped Casey with Lyme disease and toxicity. He used the Relax Sauna for a few days and had some very powerful results!
"I was diagnosed with Lyme disease and mold toxicity for several years. I had not sweat in over a year. I was very low energy.
I did 20 minutes the first time I was here and I broke a sweat for the first time. Today I actually got in it and I was just drenched. The difference that I felt between two days ago and today is just amazing."
Over the previous year, he had six HRV (Heart Rate Variability) tests done. "The first time I ever recorded any gain or any success was after I came out of one of these Relax saunas."
It was the first thing that ever helped. "I feel great. The feeling of just being in it is very soothing." I just feel more alive.
“My partner has Lyme Disease. “It has been a very good game changer for us. It has been an amazing thing.
Since having the Relax Sauna, migraines are pretty much history and overall fatigue, brain confusion, fogginess, achiness has just like disappeared, literally it's gone.
Lyme Disease and the Relax Far Infrared Sauna
Her partner was diagnosed with Lyme Disease about four years ago but was able to trace back the origin of it to about 20 years ago.
Since purchasing the Relax Sauna in 2016, she has been in it consistently five to seven days a week for 15 to 30 minutes a day. And, since having the Relax sauna; migraines are pretty much history and overall fatigue, brain confusion, fogginess, achiness has just like disappeared, literally it's gone.
“It has been a very good game changer for us. It has been an amazing thing.
If she feels like a migraine coming on, she'll just hop in the sauna or if she feels fatigue. It’s not like it (the Lyme Disease) is totally gone but it makes it manageable and it's in remission. And we have a pretty clean diet and we've done lots and lots of things over the years but definitely, this has been one very excellent purchase.”
My little dog loves the sauna. I zip the two of us in the tent. The little dog, she’ll just sit here as long as I do. I usually do 30 minutes. When it clicks off I usually turn it on for another 10. When I start to sweat I usually kick the dog out. She loves it and I love it. It’s been a really good thing.
If you just like breathing and being in the moment, I do think you'll get added benefit in that spiritual way, too, calming, relaxing for sure. It's been invigorating and helps with clear-headedness for her as well.
They are very glad that they purchased the sauna.
