Lyme Disease - Diagnosis, Cure and Prevention

Blood tests are done to find out whether you are actually dealing with Lyme disease or not. In an early stage, antibiotics for a period of time ranging from 10 up to 21 days will cure it.
In a progressed stage, Lyme disease can be cured by an intravenous antibiotic given 14 to 28 days.

Ticks lurk in wooded and grassy areas where they can sit up to 3 feet and latch on to you as soon as you brush against their hiding place. Therefore it is recommended to wear long sleeves, long pants tucked in your socks, shoes and even gloves, minimizing the exposed skin.

Good insect repellents can help preventing ticks to latch on, but be careful using the repellents on small kids. Oil of lemon eucalyptus is just as effective, but more natural.

After being out and about, check everyone for ticks. The best thing to do is taking a show using a washcloth. Since ticks do not attach themselves right away this could be enough to remove them before they do.

Should you find an attached tick, use tweezers grabbing it by the head/mouth and slowly but consistently pull until it is entirely removed. Don't crush it; this could cause part of its mouth still being stuck in the skin. After removal, disinfect the bite-area carefully.

Sin lurks everywhere and we encounter it daily within us and others. It will latch on and attach itself each chance it gets. It is wise to check your heart each day, correct where we have failed, ask forgiveness and remove the sin as quickly as possible. This will save us and others a lot of pain and grieve in the future!

Matthew 5:8
Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God.
