In addition to scientific research, the documentation of personal experiences is of great importance. In parallel to the application monitoring described above, a survey of long-term use of selected plant substances and micronutrients was therefore recorded and evaluated.
The main reason for this assessment was the general condition of the affected persons. The evaluation included 23 informative reply forms. The first survey on the recording of experiences was conducted after a three-month micronutrient intake period, the second survey after six months.
Survey participants suffered to some extent from some of the following symptoms of borreliosis, which often occurred in phases: red rash, fever, headache and limb pain, tingling in hands/feet, numbness/sensory disturbances in the legs, racing heart, feeling of soreness in the cardiac region, heart and weakness attacks, poor concentration, fatigue, sleep disorders, muscle weakness, joint problems, swollen feet and neurological disorders.

Interim report shows initial success
14 out of 23 of the interviewees reported an improvement in their general health after only three months. At the time of the question, 8 participants indicated that they had not yet noticed any changes. One person reported a temporary malaise after cellular nutrient intake (Figure 1).
Second recording after six months shows further improvements
The second recording took place after an application period of six months. At the time of this evaluation, 19 out of 23 participants had completed this application period. The extent to which the health status had changed, compared to that before the beginning of the cellular nutrient intake, was examined.
Nine out of the 19 respondents said that their personal state of health was much better than before starting the intake of cellular nutrients. Five respondents reported that their health status was slightly better and only one participant did not recognize any changes (figure 2).
The following list shows some developments that have become apparent in the participants after the intake of a special combination of cellular nutrients:
- Red area and other skin changes declined
- General condition and energy status improved
- Attacks decreased and pain alleviated
- Numbness, heat, headaches and joint pain disappeared
- Weakness, racing heart and shortness of breath became less frequent
- Weight normalized
Results suggest long-term use
The results of the survey show that long-term use of plant substances and micronutrients against borreliosis is recommended. There was also a significant improvement in the general condition of people with severe symptoms. This is an enormous success in the fight against borreliosis and its severe secondary diseases and comorbidities.
Summary and outlook
The symptoms of Lyme disease can often be alleviated by antibiotics, and the pathogens can be eliminated to a large extent. This is especially true in the early stages of the disease, when administered promptly after infection. However, this method of treatment often leads to a resurgence of the disease, since the pathogens can escape the antibiotics by various mechanisms. The problem is that the patient initially feels better, but the Borrelia can actually spread invisibly in the body and cause massive damage.
In addition, the symptoms that appear in later stages of disease are often misdiagnosed. The reason is that the symptoms do not fit to any particular disease. The result is a faulty treatment, which can aggravate the symptoms by weakening the immune system.
The work at the Dr. Rath Research Institute and further documentation show that plant substances and micronutrients can be successfully used to support the fight against borreliosis even in advanced disease stages.
On the one hand, the effect is based on the strengthening of the immune system. On the other hand, the cellular nutrients directly attack all three Borrelia forms (spirochetes, round form and biofilm), thus contributing to their destruction.
Particularly noteworthy is the fact that plant substances and micronutrient synergies, in contrast to antibiotics, are highly beneficial even in advanced stages of Lyme disease. This proves once again the superiority of natural products against conventional antibiotics in the fight against borreliosis, especially in later stages.
For this reason, the use of micronutrient synergies should be incorporated as a long-term therapy in the treatment of borreliosis, while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
