The Lyme Disease Remedy You Didn’t Know You Needed

Summer is a wonderful time of year in Upstate New York, bringing us long days, warm weather, barbecues, lake adventures, and quite frankly, more happiness! But there’s one summer side effect none of us love. It has eight legs and comes as small as a poppy seed. You probably guessed it based on the title of this post: ticks!

By talking to friends, scrolling through your social media feeds, and simply being outside you may have noticed that ticks seem to be everywhere this season. In fact, this map was created by two university professors to predict the number of positive Lyme tests for dogs this season. Keep in mind that where dogs are getting bit by Lyme-carrying ticks, so are people.

Lyme Disease is an epidemic, striking 300,000 Americans victim annually, and growing in prevalence each year. But here’s some news that should bring Lyme patients in upstate New York relief: Spa Mirbeau has just the remedy Lyme patients need to help treat their symptoms.

To combat the joint pain, muscle pain, and fatigue most commonly associated with this disease, many specialists are now recommending a little extra spa time as part of their patients’ treatment regimens.

“Supplementing medical regimens with a steam room, sauna, and gentle massage therapy can assist healing among Lyme patients,” shares Dr. Richard Horowitz, a national bestselling author and world renowned Lyme Disease Specialist from Hyde Park, N.Y., “The massage can ease their joint and muscle pain during treatment, while helping to lower inflammation, and the heat in a steam room and sauna will help their bodies to sweat out toxins associated with the illness.”
