National Depression Education and Awareness Month

October is National Depression Education and Awareness Month. It’s also a good time to be aware of this surprising cause of depression.Lyne disease rash

Depression is usually associated with
• A horrific accident
• The death of a loved one or close friend
• Diagnosis of an incurable disease
• Divorce
• Extreme loss (in abilities, freedom, future hopes, employment)
• PTSD/post-traumatic stress disorder
• Retirement
• SAD/seasonal affective disorder caused by changes in daylight hours

However, Lyme disease can also cause depression.

If you are bitten by a tick infected with Lyme disease, you may not get the classic bull’s eye rash that leads many to seek treatment for Lyme disease in its early stages. Instead, you may experience
• Acid reflux
• Chills or fever
• Depression
• Fatigue
• Headache
• Heart palpitations
• Inability to think clearly
• Joint pain
• Light sensitivity
• Memory loss
• Panic attacks
• Paralysis of the muscles of the face
• A stiff neck with or without swollen lymph glands

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and have reason to suspect a tick bite, seek immediate testing and treatment from your doctor, which usually involves oral antibiotics for several weeks. Once you know if you are dealing with Lyme disease, work with your homeopath to reduce the inflammation Lyme disease causes with one or more of these homeopathic and natural remedies:
• Apis
• Arnica
• Boswellia
• Bromelain
• Bryonia
• Chondroitin sulfate
• Colchicum
• Cumin/curcumin
• Fish oil
• Ginger
• Hypericum
• Kalium carbonicum
• Ledum
• Nux vomica
• Rhus tox
• Ruta
• Turmeric

Don’t let Lyme disease and its resulting depression take you by surprise.
