Ayurvedic Lyme Disease Program

The Raj Ayurvedic Program for Lyme Disease seeks to alleviate or eliminate symptoms, prevent complications and strengthen the immune system.

The symptoms of Lyme disease are many and varied. One of the basic tenets of Ayurveda is that we are all unique. This is especially evident with Lyme disease.  Symptoms differ markedly from one person to another. As our experts gain an understanding of your individual nature, level of imbalance, and specific symptoms, a customized treatment program can be created to address your needs.

Stress, diet, the quality of our digestion, the quality of our sleep—all these factors influence the strength of our immune system and our ability to fight disease. Guests with chronic Lyme often arrive exhausted and depleted.

Panchakarma, the traditional detoxification therapy of Ayurveda, works on the deepest levels of the physiology to restore optimum functioning of the cells and tissues. The purifying treatments help nourish the tissues, reduce inflammation, soothe muscles, and remove fat-soluble toxins and bacteria. Guests leave The Raj feeling revitalized, with many showing a decrease in physical symptoms as well as an increase in well being.

Frequently Asked Questions

The traditional purification treatments of Ayurveda (called Panchakarma) are the most important and powerful feature of your program for Lyme disease.

These powerful treatments help to remove deeply embedded toxins, improve digestion and metabolism, restore the body’s ability to lubricate and nourish the tissues and joints, and balance the doshas (the operating principles of the mind and body)

Panchakarma treatments are uniquely effective in that that they can remove harmful toxins which get stored in our fat cells (called lipophilic toxins), something conventional spa treatments and cleanses are not able to do. Lyme is a fat-soluble bacterium and the toxins released are fat-soluble neurotoxins that can challenge the body’s ability to maintain normal neurological functioning.

A study published in Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine showed that the authentic Ayurvedic treatments offered by the Raj were able to reduce fat-soluble toxins by about 50%. This study was the first published study to demonstrate that a specific purification regimen can significantly reduce levels of lipophilic toxicants in the blood.

Panchakarma treatments also help improve digestion and metabolism. Digestive health is especially important with Lyme disease, because many sufferers are unable to absorb the nutrients they need to heal. Ayurveda provides tools to help to rebuild a healthy digestion.

The Raj Lyme Disease Treatment Program has a high success rate, with many guests experiencing a decrease in physical symptoms and an increase in well-being.

Lyme affects the neurological system of almost those who suffer from the disease. As a result, Vata dosha is usually aggravated and out of balance. Vata is the dosha, or subtle energy, that governs the nervous system. Vata imbalances are associated with pain and sensitivity, such as achy joints, stiff muscles, as well as anxiety, restlessness, fatigue and weakness, memory problems insomnia, and poor digestion. These are symptoms experienced by many people who are dealing with Lyme. Anything that aggravates, or overly activates Vata, will increase the sensitivity and experience of pain in the body. Therefore, an important component in treating Lyme disease symptoms is to balance and stabilize Vata.

The warming, herbalized oils used in Abhyanga and other Ayurvedic massage treatments helps to decrease Vata, reduce anxiety and lubricate the muscles and tissues and joints. This is especially helpful in cases where Lyme manifests as musculoskeletal pain.

Gut health is of utmost importance with Lyme disease, as many guests are unable to absorb the nutrients they need to heal. Years of taking antibiotics can take its toll on the gastrointestinal system. Your treatment program at The Raj will help restore healthy digestion.

All imbalances can be aggravated through improper diet. Some foods can make Vata highly active, thereby increasing sensitivity to pain and aggravating Lyme disease symptoms.

The Raj Ayurveda experts will help you understand which foods are the best for you: which foods can easily be digested, creating micronutrients that can be easily assimilated into the tissues, helping to quickly rebuild strength and balance.
