Teasel Root (Dipsacus Sylvestris) and Lyme Disease
An Herb That Pulls Hidden Spirochetes from Tissue
Teasel Root for Lyme Disease is produced from the roots of the specific species of the biennial teasel plant Dipsacus Sylvestris. Don't confuse it with Dispsacus Fullonum. Teasel is commonly found in Europe and Asia, bears small fruits and can grow up to 5 feet tall. The Chinese use Teasel for its ability to maintain the meridian of the liver and the essence of the kidneys.
Teasel Root and Lyme Disease
Teasel Root is used for healing from Lyme Disease and for good reason. Borrelia, the Lyme bacteria, is a spirochete bacteria which means its body is spiral shaped and designed to drill into tissue such as joints, organs, and even bone. While buried within the tissue of our bodies, the spirochetes are cleverly concealed and out of reach from antibiotics and the immune system much like in a biofilm or cyst form. Teasel Root is used for its ability to pull the bacteria from tissue, and into the blood stream, exposing it to antibiotics and the immune system.
Teasel Root comes in capsule and powder form but is most commonly used in a tincture that is diluted with 50% alcohol. If you're taking the prescription drug Flagyl which is commonly used for busting Lyme cysts, you should not consume any alcohol. Flagyl and alcohol should never be taken together.
The Teasel Root tincture dosage is such that it never requires more than 9 drops a day. One must build up to 9 drops a day very slowly while following the strategic protocol that follows.
On day one, you will start with only one drop in the morning. On day two, you will start with one drop in the morning and add one drop in the afternoon. On day three, you will start with one drop in the morning, one drop in the afternoon and add one drop at night. Continue this process until 9 drops are achieved. Some people find that they need less than 9 drops to experience the effects of Teasel Root.
Exposing spirochetes to antibiotics and the immune system may cause you to herx so be mindful of how you're feeling with Teasel Root.
