"Salt and Vitamin C"
I think Red, Ruth and Reenie made some comment on this treatment adjunct for Lyme disease.
I just found it interesting because I remember talking to a guy a couple of years ago who was very knowledgeable about different ME treatments - some were way-out on a limb, but interesting.
One he mentioned was salt water!! This was introvenous in some way if i recall. Perhaps, one had to go to a special clinic in America to have it. Basically, you just got a lot of salt water in your system somehow ... don't remember the details.
I asked him how it worked and he said the theory was that evolutionarily we came from salt water and presumably a return to it is good in some way. i think there must also be some reference to salt's healing properties. swilling with salt water is good for tooth infections, and I remember my mother swam in the Red Sea years ago and a rash she'd had on her skin for months suddently cleared up the next day. Is it a similar rationale for Lymes?
Anyway, I digress. Is the anti-bacterial action of Salt and Vitamin C behind this idea of a treatment for Lymes. I was feeling curious about this.
p.s. by the way i have never added salt to my food (!) so perhaps I should start!
