Whenever I’m with friends the subject of supplements frequently comes up. I love comparing what my other Lyme friends are taking and sharing what I’ve found that works. Just as I do with my friends, I thought I’d share my very favorite supplements.

Balanced Hydration Powder by True Athlete is something I’ve been using for the past year to help with hydration. I didn’t realize that I wasn’t absorbing the water I was drinking and so my nutritionist recommended a hydration mix. I’ve used Ultima and others have told me about Liquid IV Hydration but I’ve been pretty happy with Balanced Hydration.
Activated Charcoal is an amazing supplement to use when you get sick with food poisoning or a gastrointestinal viral infection. This supplement shouldn’t be used at the same time as other medications because it can absorb them so seek the advice of your doctor.
Bath Salts for detox baths. I cannot say enough about taking regular detox baths for pain and inflammation. As a family of 6 with chronic Lyme, we went through a lot of Epsom salt. Most of the time I just grabbed this brand from my local pharmacy or Walmart and sometimes I bought the bulk versions at my wholesale club. Read more about the Perfect Detox Bath (Here)
Homeopathy I use regularly
Rhus Tox – I use Rhus tox 30 on a regular basis for joint pain.
Symphytum – I use Symphytum for fatigue
Arnica – I’ll grab arnica anytime there’s a new injury, muscle strain, bruising, or soreness.
Hypericum – Hypericum is my go-to for nerve pain.
Kali Bichromicum – Kali Bichromicum has been a lifesaver for pressure system migraines. Whenever a storm front rolls through or the barometric pressure changes quickly, I’ll end up with a 3 day, in the bed, massive migraine. Last year when I learned about Kali Bichromicum I began using it any time I felt that pressure start and whenever I knew a storm was coming. Since using it I have not had a migraine.
