Lyme Disease Cases Double in U.S.: CDC
According to statistics released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of cases of Lyme disease has doubled in the U.S. since 1991. (that's 16 years) More than 21,000 cases are now reported every year, making it the most common illness transmitted by insects or animals in the country. The CDC says these figures are most likely an underestimation as not all cases are reported.

Fish Oil Shows Promise in Brain Disorders
Fish oil is increasingly showing promise as a complementary medicine. There is evidence that fish oil supplements rich in omega-3 fatty acids can help treat bipolar and attention deficit disorders in children. A small study found a 30% reduction in manic symptoms with no side effects among children diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

I don't know of a herbal cure, sorry. Lyme disease usually treated with a 21 day run of doxycycline, though docs are talking about how that may be too more than enough antibiotic to kick it. Doxycycline is pretty cheap. The same general guidance goes for all bacterial infections: boost your immune system by avoiding sugars & grains, get good rest and a happy attitude....all these things help. Healthy individuals like yourselves you might be able to kick it without the antibiotics, but I would be tempted to use them if you have symptoms. If the infection gets in your nervous system it can hurt you bad. If you pull ticks off of yourselves, just keep an eye on the bite site, and if it gets a red ring around it, or if you start feeling bad, check more about it.

Hi Belinda;
Thanks for the invite! I will check back in on you to see if there are any developments. I do not have Lyme disease, and would not choose to tell the stories of others in this format. But I am interested in what you discover!
Blessed BE
