Lyme disease: Vitamin C treatment

Dr. Hartung is the head of the Alternative Cancer Treatment Center in Kehl near Strasbourg and has been treating patients suffering from Lyme disease using intravenous vitamin C for years. More and more patients from all over the world come to him seeking natural help against chronic illnesses. Dr. Dieter Hartung can now look back on more than 20 years of professional experience in naturopathic, holistic treatment of Lyme disease.

Lyme disease: therapy

Lyme disease must be treated as early as possible. A combination of antibiotic treatment and naturopathic methods in the early stages holds the best chances for success.

Vitamin C infusion therapy – Lyme disease treatment:

At the Alternative Cancer Treatment Center, Dr. Hartung administers high-dose vitamin C directly into the bloodstream of patients suffering from Lyme disease. This therapy is based on the fact that, in the case of chronic diseases such as Lyme disease, there is an increased requirement for vitamin C in certain areas of the body. This vitamin C deficiency often cannot be eliminated through normal food intake. The vitamin C infusion therapy complements the conventional medication very well.

What are the effects of vitamin C in patients with Lyme disease?

A sufficient supply of vitamin C is required to maintain a strong immune system. Immune system cells need a lot of vitamin C for their defense work. Vitamin C also acts as a radical catcher. This means that it neutralizes free cytotoxic and pathogenic radicals.

Advantages of the vitamin C infusion therapy for patients with Lyme:

Many people take vitamin C in powder or tablet form to boost their immune system. However, the human body can only absorb a specific amount of vitamin C via the digestive tract. Excess vitamin C is simply excreted. The treatment of Lyme disease often requires high doses of vitamin C, which are best administered intravenously. The Alternative Cancer Treatment Center in Kehl treats patients suffering from Lyme disease using this intravenous vitamin C infusion.

What is Lyme disease?

Lyme disease (also known as Lyme borreliosis) is an infection caused by bacteria of the Borrelia burgdorferi species. This bacterial species belongs to the spirochete class, which also causes syphilis. Just like syphilis, Lyme disease can cause a wide variety of symptoms.

General information on Lyme disease

Lyme disease was first observed about 50 years ago in a town called Lyme, hence the name. In 1981, Willy Burgdorfer gave a description of the Borrelia burgdorferi species for the first time.  Borrelia can spread through the entire body through the bloodstream and affect all organs. This can result in very different syndromes. These syndromes are very complex and can very easily be confused with other syndromes. In most cases, the disease affects more than one organ. Several organs can be affected simultaneously, with very different syndromes. Lyme disease can be spread to humans through ticks or insects such as mosquitoes, horse flies, and fleas. The disease can also affect other mammals. Currently, there are four known types of Borrelia that can cause Lyme disease (Borrelia burgdorferi, Borrelia garinii, Borrelia afzelli, Borrelia spielmanii).

Up to 30% of ticks are infected with Borrelia depending on the region.

Tick-borne encephalitis vaccine

The TBE vaccine, often referred to as anti-tick vaccine, protects against viral diseases, but not against Lyme disease. Please remember that the TBE vaccine neither protects against ticks nor Lyme disease!

Lyme disease stages

Stage 1:
In case of a you are Borrelia infection from a tick bite, a circular or ring-shaped rash can appear on the skin after several days. In biological terms, this rash is referred to as erythema migrans. The rash often has a sharp demarcation, is painless, and does not itch. It is often lighter at the center. A red rash can occur, but need not.

In the first stage of Lyme disease, the following general symptoms may also appear in addition to the rash on the skin:

  • Fever
  • Joint pain
  • Headache
  • Weakness
  • Muscle pains
  • Swollen lymph nodes

Stage 2

The second stage of Lyme disease usually occurs between one and six months after the tick bite, with flu-like symptoms. Other organs are affected in addition to the skin.

If the nervous system is affected, one speaks of neuroborreliosis. The patient may experience pain, paralysis, and arrhythmias.

Stage 3

The third stage occurs months to years after the tick bite. The nerves can be damaged to the extent that some parts of the body are paralyzed. Severe joint inflammation is common and can affect one or multiple joints.
