Matthew Goss's Lyme Disease InformationDiet
difficult for many people to follow, an Atkins type diet is a wise move
for people who have Lyme or other bacterial infections. The reason is that
bacteria feed off of sugar and carbohydrates. A protein diet will limit
the ability of bacteria to grow and thrive in your body. Things like sweets,
soda and fruit juice should be eliminated from your diet, or at the very
least kept to a minimum.
Dr. Joseph Burrascano's "Diagnostic Hints and Treatment Guidelines" suggests that use of alcohol is a strong indicator that a patient will relapse. Alcohol suppresses the immune system, and people with Lyme Disease will need all the help they can get.
