Lyme Disease Stages

There are 3 Lyme disease stages. While the 3 stages of Lyme disease are easily defined, the symptoms those infected experience are varied. When considering the stages, it is also important to consider advanced Lyme disease and dormant Lyme disease.

Stage 1

It is called Early Localized Lyme Disease. The infection has not had time to spread throughout the body. We found one instance where a small child that had the bulls eye rash, was tested and diagnosed with Lyme. The parents decided to take their child to Lyme Connecticut where one of the foremost Lyme Pediatric Lyme Literate Doctor practiced. On arrival and testing, the child was found to be free of Lyme infection. He has continued to grow and several years have passed and he continues to be symptom free.

If Lyme disease is not caught and treated appropriately early on, it can lead to persistent or chronic Lyme. Persistent Lyme cannot be least yet.

Stage 2

Early Disseminated Lyme Disease. At this point, the infection is starting to spread throughout the body. It is in this period that the immune system becomes compromised. The white blood cell count becomes reduced. Once our immune system is compromised, secondary infections can now take hold and start further damage.

In addition to bacterial infections, fungal, viral or mycoplasmal infections (bacteria without cellular walls) can invade our bodies. Biofilms will also start to form, making it even more difficult to eliminate from the body.

Stage 3

Late Disseminated Lyme Disease. The bacteria has spread throughout the body. The body can turn into either advanced Lyme disease or it can become dormant Lyme disease.

Lyme can be dormant for long periods of time, even years. It is not until inexpiable symptoms start to appear that there is even an indication that something is wrong. Usually though, doctors treat the symptoms and do not even consider something like Lyme disease.

It has been estimated that those infected with Lyme spend on the average up to $100,000 to in treating their illness until the Lyme is put into remission.

With a compromised immune system, other bacterial infections start to do their damage. The bacterial co-infections include Babesia, Bartonella and Erlichiosis.

Beyond Lyme Disease Stages: It Gets Worse

Fungal infections like candida can cause additional problems.

If you have been to numerous doctors and not found relief from your symptoms, if you have been told that you have an autoimmune disease and told there is no treatment, then consider Lyme disease as the cause.

There are things you can do beyond the Water Cures protocol to manage and even help your body eliminate the bacteria. One dietary consideration, moving toward 50 to 80% live foods (living vegetables, sprouted seeds and grains) and fresh fruits. shows the health benefits of such a diet that boost our bodies glutathione.

Our Grandparents Knew About Mixing Hydration and Eating!

It is amazing how so many things that are new to us were common knowledge in the past. One basic practice of the Water Cures protocol is to drink at least 30-45 minutes before and 2 1/2 hours after a meal. This is not a new thought however. Notice what a magazine from 1925 had to say...

"Drink plenty of water two hours after each meal; drink none just before eating; and a small quantity if any at meal time. Do not take a bath until two hours after eating a meal, nor closer than one hour before eating. Drink a full glass of water both before and after the bath." (Golden Age, Sept. 9, 1925, pp. 784-785)

The Great Salt Debate
Here is the Science

We are not promoting increased salt intake. We are suggesting taking salt in amounts appropriate to your bodies needs, based on water needs. Our needs are not one size fits all.

Note: Do you have CHF or Kidney Disease? Then.....

There is more to Water Cures than just salt and water. Diet, 50 to 80% raw food is best and exercise play an important part. And we believe the science is important too. Below is some of the research we found as to why Water Cures is the solution for better health.

Heal Your Headache It Worked For Me

Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.

As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.

From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.

Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.

Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.

Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.

Why not give it a try yourself.
