Sorry for the hyperbolic-sounding headline, but I didn't really know how else to write it.
This article showed up on Facebook, and it seemed worth sharing here. Similar stories are posted by reputable news agencies, so I feel like it's probably a real thing, at least given what they know about it so far. The recipe seems to be made of ingredients that could be commonly found on a permaculture farm.

We've been using a root decoction and tincture of Fallopian japonica and Berberis thurbunjii to effectively remain asymptomatic after positive Lyme tests. We are inundated with deer ticks here in the north asa and Lyme Disease seems to be one of the most under reported epidemics in our region of Maine.
