Tick Removal

How to Properly Remove a Tick:

Improper removal of ticks greatly increases the risk of acquiring tick-borne infections. Squeezing the tick or putting substances on the tick to try to make it "back out" may aggravate it enough that it injects into you whatever disease organisms are inside it.

pdfThis diet (click to download PDF) is intended to "starve out" yeast (Candida), which is common with Lyme, as a yeast overgrowth is a known side-effect of taking antibiotics.  I like to call it a diet for "healthy human beings" - as it would likely help with treating a variety of illnesses.
