How can biofeedback help Lyme disease?

Biofeedback can also help with Lyme disease, which can be associated with pain, concentration problems and immune system problems. Biofeedback therapy is non-invasive, painless, drug-free and comfortable. The analysed results of the treatment allow the patient’s body to change the way it works, which can be extremely beneficial for physical and mental health.

How can biofeedback help with Lyme disease

Lyme disease is often under-diagnosed, as it can take several years after infection before symptoms appear.

During biofeedback treatment, sensors are placed on the body by the biofeedback practitioner, and the sensors and the computer system linked to them provide information about the body’s function and current condition. Based on the results, we can make changes to the way our body works that improve functioning and health.

In Oriental medicine, yogis and monks have always been aware that only through careful observation of the body and meditation can pain or stress be reduced.

Lyme disease can have many complications that need to be treated separately from the underlying disease!

Biofeedback therapy can be helpful for memory problems, concentration problems, anxiety, pain reduction or even immune support associated with Lyme disease.

What is Lyme disease

Lyme disease is an infectious disease of bacterial origin caused by bacteria of the genus Borrelia. They live in the intestinal tract of ticks and enter the human body through tick bites.

Lyme disease is also dangerous because it is not always diagnosed at the outset. Sometimes the infected person may not even find the tick, and within a few days they may have loss of appetite, fatigue or joint problems.

In the best cases, the disease can be identified by a cocoon-like, slowly spreading reddening of the skin at the site of the tick bite, known as a Lyme spot. Those who do not have this can easily be under-diagnosed.

Symptoms of Lyme disease

Symptoms of Lyme disease can vary, some appearing in the first days after a tick bite, others in the first months or even years afterwards.

  • fatigue
  • joint pain
  • fever, chills
  • headaches
  • redness
  • a cockade-like patch at the site of a tick bite
  • myocarditis
  • meningitis
  • facial mycosis
  • knee joint effusion
  • paralysis of the eye motor nerve
  • erythema migrans
  • chronic nervous system problems
  • anxiety, depression
  • memory problems

How can biofeedback help with Lyme disease

See how biofeedback can help with Lyme disease! Antibiotics can be used to treat Lyme disease, but biofeedback can also help with pain relief, reducing stress and anxiety, cognitive dysfunction and immune support.

In biofeedback therapy, pain associated with Lyme disease can be effectively treated by using a biofeedback device to monitor physiological responses and teach the patient techniques to reduce pain and discomfort.

Lyme disease can also be associated with anxiety and stress, in which case the biofeedback device can teach the patient relaxation techniques.

To counteract deteriorating cognitive abilities, the patient learns to focus and become more mentally focused during the therapy.

Based on the feedback from the biofeedback device, the practitioner may ask the patient to change their sitting position, breathing or relax their muscles at a given moment. The results are continuously displayed on the screen.

With practice, however, the patient can learn to make the same physical changes, now without the feedback screen or the practitioner’s instructions.

Biofeedback and immune support

Biofeedback supports the immune system, making the body stronger in resisting infections, including Lyme disease.
When we are in pain, stressed, anxious, the body changes the way it works. We only notice this when we are consciously aware of it. Our breathing changes, our pulse changes, our muscles tense.

Biofeedback therapy can help to restore balance and make the patient feel better physically and mentally.

There are no side effects to worry about, no painful tests and no interventions in the body.

It’s all about the mind and body working together in a coordinated way, balancing energy, getting fitter and healthier.
