- Check your children and pets thoroughly for ticks that may hide under the arms, in and around the ears, inside the belly button and in their hair.
- Examine clothing and/or put them into a dryer on high heat to kill ticks, if any.
- Wear closed-toe shoes and pull sock over pant legs.
- Wear long-sleeved shirts or use an insect repellent.
- Avoid walking through wooded and bushy areas with tall grass.

Believe it or not, cannabis can actually help to reduce the severe symptoms of Lyme disease.
Many studies are showing that cannabis reacts strongly against infections, and a book was written about it. Shelley White, the author, goes over her experience with lyme disease and how cannabis reacted with her condition.
She expressed that cannabis works effectively against peripheral neuropathy, a severe condition in those who suffer from lyme disease. Cannabis provides a healthier alternative to pain relief, with no side effects rather than opioids.
