True or not, but I've been told by my Doc that you won't get Lyme Disease unless a tick has been embedded for 48 hours!

I'm very hesitant to believe that!

A few weeks ago, I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease and I know the tick wasn't embedded 48 hours!

Infact, I never new he was there until he was gone and there was a bullseye, and I witnessed 103 fever and other flu-like symptoms for 2 days before I got in to see the Doc!  The tick left it's mark on my right lower leg and I know I would have noticed it during my nightly shower!

From anecdotal  reports I think you should be fine with a course of antibiotics . There is one thing that might help and can't hurt. I customer of mine had a bad case of lyme and after antibiotics went to a holistic physician who gave her IV glutathione injections that helped tremendously. So perhaps you do the antibiotic first and then the glutathione IV afterwards. Supposedly eating bone soup is good for the immune system as well. And taking probiotics with the antibiotics.
