Exploring Herbal Solutions for Lyme and Tick-Borne Illnesses with Dr. Myriah Hinchey and Lyme Core Botanicals

Hello everyone, I’m Dr. Myriah Hinchey, and today I’m excited to introduce you to some innovative herbal solutions for managing treatment complications associated with Lyme and other tick-borne illnesses. Representing Lyme Core Botanicals, I am thrilled to share our new formulations designed to enhance your journey toward recovery.

At Lyme Core Botanicals, we have developed a range of new tinctures, building on our previous offerings to provide more versatile and effective treatment options. Here’s a quick overview of our latest products:

New Formulations

This formula intervenes at every step of the infection process, making it useful for both acute and chronic infections.

Synergy and Comprehensive Treatment

Our ASAP formulas combine these potent herbs to create a broad-spectrum antimicrobial action against Lyme and common co-infections. They are designed to work synergistically, providing a comprehensive approach to managing these complex infections.

Protocols and Recommendations

While I’m not typically a protocol person, here’s a snapshot of my go-to herbs for various infections:

  • Lyme Disease: Japanese knotweed, cat’s claw, cryptolepis, sweet Annie, black walnut, skullcap, houttuynia, and cordyceps.
  • Babesia: Japanese knotweed, cat’s claw, cryptolepis, sweet Annie, sida acuta, and alchornea.
  • Bartonella: Japanese knotweed, cat’s claw, houttuynia, cordyceps, cryptolepis, sida acuta, and red root.
  • Mycoplasma: Japanese knotweed, cat’s claw, houttuynia, and cordyceps.
  • Viral Infections: Our ViralCore formula, with a special mention of skullcap.

Understanding the Mechanisms

Understanding the mechanisms of these herbs is crucial. For instance, Japanese knotweed inhibits matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), enzymes that break down collagen and allow the bacteria to spread. By inhibiting these enzymes, we can halt the spread of the infection. Similarly, various herbs like echinacea and ashwagandha inhibit hyaluronidase, stopping bacterial movement throughout the body.


At Lyme Core Botanicals, we are dedicated to providing pure, potent, and consistent herbal solutions tailored to each patient’s unique presentation of tick-borne diseases. Our formulations work synergistically with pharmaceutical antibiotics or as standalone treatments, offering a well-rounded approach to overcoming these challenging infections.

Thank you for your attention, and I hope this overview provides valuable insights into our herbal solutions for Lyme and tick-borne illnesses.
