Claritin Kills Lyme Disease!

This article is a work in progress. It is not complete. Please send any comments or questions.  

New research is emerging on how Claritin, chemical name Loratadine, can block Borrelia's ability to absorb manganese, which is a critical micronutrient / trace metal that keeps the bacteria alive.  

This new information could potentially have huge implications for healing Lyme disease, as this simple anti-allergy medication could provide breakthrough treatment options for Lyme disease.

My personal feeling is that while this treatment may aid in killing Lyme bacteria, it is likely not a cure. Why? Because Lyme complex involves a lot more than just Borrelia. Many body-wide dysfunctions exist. Also, Lyme bacteria are sheltered under biofilm and protected by a colony structure, which makes it even harder to kill.

Finally, the dosage needed of Claritin to kill Borrelia is likely much higher than can be tolerated - remember - the existing study was done in a test tube, not on humans. Still though - this information is highly promising, we'll keep you posted!
