Nosodes are homeopathic remedies comprised of dilute concentrations of macerated bacteria associated with Lyme disease or secretions from Lyme patients. The remedies are administered by oral preparations and are meant to act as an oral vaccine against Lyme infections. Because many of the preparations are so dilute, they often don’t have much of a taste.

Although I’ve read online reviews of people having positive responses for Lyme disease and coinfections to this type of intervention, no scientific studies exist to support its efficacy.

Nosodes — Dr. Rawls’ Summary
Cost: 2 out of 5 dollar signs
Efficacy: 2.5 stars
Safety: 4 stars
Ways to Administer: oral
Bottom Line: Trying nosodes is unlikely to cause harm, but there’s no scientific evidence to show they actually work for people with Lyme disease.
