It’s that time of year again.
Just as the mercury begins to rise… and we want to roll up our sleeves and put on shorts… the deer ticks come out.
Their seasonal emergence leaves us tucking our long pants into our socks and boots and buttoning our sleeves at the wrists.
But even our best efforts might not protect us from getting Lyme disease.
According to the CDC, 300,000 Americans are diagnosed with this chronic illness EVERY YEAR.
And we know that since Lyme masquerades as other diseases… like chronic fatigue and even Alzheimer’s… there are LOTS MORE cases that HAVEN’T been diagnosed.
Even if you KNOW you’ve got Lyme, it’s notoriously difficult to treat.
Some folks struggle for YEARS before getting any relief.
And some never get any relief at all.
If you’ve been diagnosed with Lyme disease – or suspect the infection — there’s an ancient Chinese trick you need to know about.
It addresses one of the most challenging obstacles to RIDDING yourself of Lyme – FOR GOOD.
Nowhere to run or hide
Ticks that live in tall grasses and wooded areas (usually deer ticks) carry a corkscrew-shaped bacterium that can cause Lyme disease, called Borrelia burgdorferi.
When a tick bites you… and buries itself into your skin… it transmits the bacterium into your bloodstream.
And the longer the tick is on you… the more you’re exposed to the Lyme-causing bacteria.
These germs in particular are sneaky – because they’ve got a way of building a “force field” around them so they can continue to grow and multiply.
And even the strongest antibiotic can’t break through that barrier.
There’s something else that can…
But you may not believe what I’m about to tell you.
The oldest Chinese medical manuscripts tell stories of “earth dragons” and their healing properties.
It may sound like a fantasy, but hundreds of studies have been published out of China, proving the miraculous powers of these mystical beasts.
Since none of those studies were written in English, scientists outside of the East have been able to turn a blind eye to them.
In fact, Western researchers only JUST started paying attention to this creature’s healing powers in 1991 – less than three decades ago!
So, what is this “dragon” of the earth that has captivated Chinese healers for so long?
It’s the common earthworm!
Specifically, it’s a complex enzyme extracted from Lumbricus rubellus, which scientists have named lumbrokinase.
The key to the success of lumbrokinase is its ability to PENETRATE the barrier that protects the Lyme bacteria and allows it to THRIVE inside your body… sometimes for YEARS.
That barrier – or “biofilm” – is partly made out of a protein known as fibrinogen.
And lumbrokinase can break fibrinogen down – something that NO antibiotic can do.
Now, lumbrokinase isn’t a “cure” for Lyme on its own.
But it can improve the effectiveness of antimicrobial vitamins and herbs (like vitamin C, eucalyptus, garlic, and even wormwood) and bacteria-busting drugs like antibiotics (usually doxycycline or amoxicillin).
And they’re perfectly safe… and potent.
Lumbrokinase is available either as earthworm fibrinolytic enzymes (e-PPA) or earthworm powder enzymes (EPE).
Since lumbrokinase can affect your blood clotting and viscosity, make sure you consult with a doctor before using it.
But your doc may have never heard of it… and won’t have a CLUE where you can get it.
There is a patented, standardized extract called Boluoke, available from a manufacturer based in Canada. You can find it online.
