Lyme Disease in Maine

The signs of Lyme disease, treatment and prevention, and how to protect your pets from ticks

Lyme disease is a serious disease that is affecting more and more people in Maine and New England. The disease spread by ticks causes a variety of symptoms including fatigue, fever, headache and joint soreness. There are some new concerns about the transmission of Lyme disease. When retiring to Maine, we want to get outdoors and enjoy nature safely. Three Lyme disease specialists from Scarborough Integrative Health are guests in this edition of Down East magazine’s Retire to Maine podcast. We discuss the signs of Lyme disease, treatment and prevention, how to protect your pets from ticks and where to get more information.

    I was diagnosed with Lyme disease 5 years ago and was taking Antibiotics and Nonsteroidal anti-Inflammatory drug which seemed to help. However, I still suffer from some of the symptoms. My symptoms have always been chronic fatigue, joint pain, and even neurological problems in controlling hand and leg movements. I am a 54 year old female. the Antibiotics wasn’t really working and I could not tolerate them for long due to severe side effects, so this year our family doctor started me on Natural Herbal Gardens Lyme disease Herbal mixture, We ordered their Lyme disease herbal treatment after reading alot of positive reviews, i am happy to report with the help of Natural Herbal Garden natural herbs I have been able to reverse my symptoms using herbs, my symptoms totally declined over a 8 weeks use of the Natural Herbal Gardens Lyme disease herbal mixture.
