Diet and elimination of symptom provoking foods play a tremendous role in the reduction of Lyme’s symptoms. Many individuals with Lyme disease already make better choices when it comes to diet (no preservatives, food additives, synthetic sweeteners, etc.) and eliminated most of the obvious triggers (gluten, dairy, soy, etc.). This helps in removing one of the three top contributors to autoimmunity, however, you shouldn’t let your diet control your life or force you to live in fear. Don’t obsess over food allergies. Dropping fear and labels is one of the most important steps in the healing process.
