Article Excerpt:

I subscribe to newsletters from Greg Lee, a licensed acupuncturist, Chinese herbalist, and Master Sufi Healer in Maryland. He is co-founder of the Two Frogs Healing Center, and has helped clients to heal Lyme disease chronic pain, fatigue, and mental fogginess. He sends out lots of great newsletters about Lyme Disease, and I got this one recently. He allows all his articles to be republished in full form, and I thought that it was a great article to share.  It is Lyme Disease Awareness Month, after all, and the start of tick season.

Please take the time to read this article. Properly removing a tick and getting it tested for Lyme Disease may save your life!

 

How to Remove a Tick and Get it Tested for Lyme Disease

For people who find a tick embedded in their skin

By Greg Lee, co-founder of the Two Frogs Healing Center

"Uh oh," I thought as I discovered a small embedded tick on my daughter's head. My second thought was, "Did it just give her Lyme disease?" Here is what you can do when you find an attached tick.

How long does it take for a tick to transmit Lyme disease to a person?
Deer tick nymphs can be as small as a poppy seed or a little larger than the size of this period ".". The adults can be about the size of a sunflower seed or about the size of the letter "o". The tick on my daughter was an adult deer tick.

Some experts say that it needs to be attached 24 hours or longer to transmit the bacteria. Others say that you can get infected as soon as the tick bites you. The truth is that no one knows for sure how long a tick has to be attached to infect you. Also, only 50% of people who get infected ever develop a bulls eye rash. My daughter had a raised bump where the tick was attached and did not develop a rash. The first thing we did was to get the tick out.
