*LD is known as “The Great Imitator” because is mimics all types of health issues. The flu, MS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ALS, Alzheimer’s… Just to name a few.
*Lyme Disease is an infection caused by the spirochetal bacteria– Borrelia Burgdorferi. They are called this because of their spiral shape that drills itself into your tissue of any organ it pleases.
*LD is transmitted through the bite of a tick, but is also transmitted by mosquitoes (which absolutely LOVE me), fleas, mites, gnats, human to human contact. Transmission can occurred across placenta by in-vitro fertilization, breast feeding, blood transfusions and unprotected sex.
*Because Chronic Lyme disease evades the immune system, Lyme disease is only detectable by conventional testing when it is in its earliest stages. If the bacterial infection becomes chronic, the rate of false-negatives in testing increases exponentially.
*LD is everywhere throughout the world. Ticks (and other carriers) know no borders and respect no boundaries. A patient’s county of residence does not accurately reflect his or her LD risk because people, pets, and ticks travel.
*Long-term antibiotics do help kill the bacteria so treatment should begin as soon as possible. DO NOT wait! You will only get worse! If undetected and untreated, the bacteria replicates and the disease progresses into its late stages, becoming chronic. Treatment for Chronic Lyme disease is prolonged and complex. Patients often require years of intensive conventional and alternative therapies to fight the infection, recover immune function, and gain strength.
*Chronic Lyme does exist. If you don’t believe me, go to my YouTube channel and watch this video of my recent dark field live blood analysis taken on 8/5/13 – And remember, I got a positive LD test on 6/2/11 and have been on antibiotics for over 2 years!
*Not everyone gets the bulls-eye rash. (I didn’t)
*Co-infections are also very common with LD.
*”The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing”: Why it can take years to treat – Lyme bacteria generate a biofilm around itself so the antibodies of your immune system can’t detect it. If your immune system can’t find the spirochetes, how will the antibiotics?
*Once you are on antibiotics, you will feel worse before you get better. There are endotoxins released by the death of harmful organisms, Lyme bacteria, within the body. This is called a “Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction” (Herx reaction).
