Lyme disease, also known as Borrelia Burgdorferi, is a prevalent vector-borne illness that can spread to humans from a bite of an infected tick. Bites of ticks often go unnoticed due to their tiny size and their unnoticeable nature,  However, bacterial infection can be easily treated if diagnosed early.Learn More 


There are a range of symptoms that can appear at different times but the most common symptom of Lyme disease is usually an oval rash where the tick has bitten and flu-like symptoms. The time span for the symptoms to appear is usually 1 to 4 weeks, but in some cases, it can take up to 3 months and can last up to several weeks.

This infection can be treated if caught early, here are some early-stage symptoms to look out for:

  • Rash

  • Fever

  • Headaches

  • Chills

  • Fatigue

  • Muscle and joint pain

If this is not treated immediately, these symptoms can increase to:

  • Swelling and pain in the joints

  • Meningitis- related neck stiffness

  • Heart palpitations

  • Dizziness

  • Muscular atrophy on one or both sides of the face

  • Impaired cognitive function

  • Neurological symptoms encompass sensations of tingling and numbness in both upper and lower extremities


Firstly, you can try and reduce your chances of getting Lyme disease by covering your skin in the outdoors, staying on footpaths, using insect repellent, and checking yourself for ticks once you have returned from the outdoors and you are in a safe environment. In most cases, the treatment of Lyme disease includes a course of antibiotics that usually lasts a few weeks from your GP. However, there are a few cases where the symptoms take longer and a second course of antibiotics needs to be treated.  Antibiotics will need to be treated via intravenous (IV drip) to ensure optimal recovery for patients who have cardiac or neurological conditions. 


Studies indicate that up to 20% of people who have experienced the symptoms and have completed the treatment still suffer some symptoms that continue for months and some even years which is known as Post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome (chronic Lyme disease). Resulting in an autoimmune reaction due to the immune system that continues to react even though the infection has been treated.

Having chronic Lyme disease can have a huge effect on someone’s natural body detox process. Putting strain on vital detoxification organs like the liver and kidneys, causing a massive negative effect on other symptoms that include chronic inflammation and dysfunction of the mitochondria as mitochondrial function is essential for healing.


RED and NIR light therapy uses infrared light, which cannot be seen by the human eye, generates a powerful energy that deeply penetrates tissue, promoting healing, enhancing circulation, and providing relief from pain. Individuals suffering from long-term symptoms of Lyme disease can greatly benefit from the therapeutic effects of NIR wavelengths.

One of the key benefits of red and NIR light therapy is its ability to increase cellular energy production. When mitochondria are exposed to RED and NIR light, they produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which serves as the primary fuel for all cellular activities and metabolic processes. This enhanced ATP production plays a crucial role in healing and promoting overall cellular function.

This 2015 study titled, “Effects of 670 Nm and 830 Nm Light on the immune response to the Borrelia burgdorferi” evaluated wavelengths of light specific to Lyme arthritis. The study demonstrated that wavelengths between 630 nm to 900 nm were effective at reducing inflammatory symptoms.

Body Boost Bed (BBB) Full Body LED Light Therapy technology emits the correct light frequencies and wavelengths to deliver a gentle, natural, and safe therapy.


  • Boosted immune system

  • Stimulate mitochondrial activity

  • Promotes detoxification and relaxation

  • Increased energy

  • Rejuvenated skin

  • Decreased inflammation, pain and discomfort

  • Improved sleep

  • Quicker recovery time

  • Improve muscle performance

  • Improves circulation

  • Stress reliever

Patients suffering from Lyme disease may discover that BBB LED light therapy offers a promising alternative treatment option. Incorporating a regular self-care routine can have significant benefits for managing chronic Lyme disease symptoms. Consistency is key, and spending just 25 minutes in it on a regular basis can accelerate the healing process.

By exploring red light therapy as a management tool for Lyme disease, you may be pleasantly surprised at how it can support your overall well-being. If you want to know more about red light therapy and how it can improve your condition and enhance your quality of life.
