Here are the facts on PA and Lyme

Nowhere is Lyme disease more common than Pennsylvania, according to the Centers for Disease Control. There were 8,988 confirmed cases of Lyme disease in Pennsylvania every year, more than 5,000 more than New Jersey, which has the second-highest number of confirmed cases, and the numbers are climbing. This brings us to Infrared & Lyme Disease Symptoms, and how our infrared saunas are helping our community fight their symptoms, every day.

Infrared Sauna's & Lyme Disease Symptoms

Lyme Disease and Infrared Saunas Therapy, at Alternative Healing Solution, Emmaus, Pa, Fight Lyme

Infrared Therapy fights Lyme Disease

Many Lyme Disease patients seek relief through alternative treatments like an infrared sauna. The warmth of an infrared sauna has a soothing effect on joint and muscle pain so infrared sauna treatments can provide an effective complement to traditional Lyme Disease treatment.  The deep penetrating heat of an infrared sauna also makes the body a far less desirable host for the bacteria and it dies off as the body temperature rises. Lyme also creates a build-up of toxins in the body, infrared saunas quickly and safely removes these toxins and inflammation. 

Infrared Saunas kill Bacteria

Sufferers of Lyme Disease experience a wide range of problems including extreme muscle and joint pain, headaches, sudden deafness, reflex problems, and muscle weakness as well as more severe neurological problems. The Bb bacterium of Lyme is more resistant to treatment by antibiotics than most bacteria for a variety of reasons. One infrared sauna treatment and most Lyme patients are convinced they have found what they have been looking for!

Rapid Detox

In general, the current therapy for Lyme Disease consists of IV or oral antibiotics, often combined with an antiprotozoal medication. Because pharmaceutical therapy is often not entirely effective and/or not covered by insurance, many Lyme sufferers seek out alternative treatments as well. These include supplements, probiotics and infrared sauna therapy.


A person may find that a detoxification protocol that worked during the first few months of treatment is not as, or not at all, effective in the later months of treatment.  The reason this happens is because the rate of detoxification is much slower than the rate at which toxins are being released by Borrelia. 

Infrared Saunas Detoxifies Metals and Toxins

Infrared & Lyme Disease Symptoms. Sweating in the infrared sauna flushes fat-soluble toxins (including heavy metals) out of the body via the skin. This detoxification which occurs at the lower heat available in an infrared sauna assists the immune system and the healing process while increasing circulation, invigorating the body, and allowing the meds to reach all parts of the body in a more efficient manner. Infrared sauna therapy also relaxes the muscles and joints, giving the patient some relief from their pain.

From what I've Experienced

In the 5 years of having an Infrared Sauna in my practice, one of the concerns our customers come to us with is Infrared & Lyme Disease Symptoms. We have seen so many of our customers mitigate, if not eliminate, many of the symptoms of Lyme because they include an infrared sauna in their healing process.
