Lyme a Chronic Disease

Is Lyme Disease Contagious?

First, forget almost everything you think you know about Lyme disease.  It’s not rare, it’s actually an epidemic in the U.S. The CDC conservatively suggests 300,000 new cases per year, probably it’s much higher. It’s not just tick borne but also transmitted by fleas, mosquitoes, mites, mice and human to human contacts such as breast milk, placenta, semen, blood transfusions etc.   Additionally, Lyme is rarely cured by a simple course of antibiotics for a few weeks, except when discovered and diagnosed at the very earliest stage.

Lyme disease testing and the medical model

Lyme is a hard disease to diagnose with conventional lab tests and blood chemistries.  Current tests are often unreliable and give false positives and negatives. It is even harder to treat using the allopathic-pharmaceutical model. This is due in part because the Lyme spirochete (Bb) is pleomorphic and flies under the radar of the host’s immune system hiding under biofilms. Animal studies have shown that in less than a week after infection, the Lyme spirochete can be found deeply embedded in the tendons, muscles, heart and brain. Many researchers view  Lyme’s disease as much more than a single simple tick borne infection but instead as a complex illness that can, and usually does, consist of other co-infections such as Babesia, Bartonella, Ehrlichia, Mycoplasma, Rickettsia, and Lyme-related viruses.

Symptoms of Lyme disease

  •    Flu-like illness
  •    Fever
  •    History of Tick Bite (Not all patients recall a bite)
  •    Headache
  •    Extreme Fatigue
  •    EM Rash, Other Rashes (Only found in 50% of patients)
  •    Malar Flush, Red Ear Lobes
  •    TMJ/ Jaw Pain (Temporomandibular Join)
  •    Neck & Back Pain
  •    Joint Pain & Swelling, Bone Pain

What is Lyme disease

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that triggers a myriad of seemingly unrelated symptoms.  Borrellia burgdorferi is the causative bacterium.  After B. Burgdorferi enters the human host, the immune system tries to trap it at the bite site.  This sometimes causes a ring shaped rash.  Often the lymphatic system is able to contain the infection but frequently it escapes to infect the joints and the Central Nervous System.

The body after the bite

Once inside the body, Borrelia Burgdorferi becomes a stealth invader; it sheds its thick cell wall and spiral shape and takes on a completely different shape.  This change of shape protects the bacteria from attack by antibiotics or the immune system.  Changing its shape allows it to hide and not be readily detected or recognized by the immune system.  This stealth bacterium produces a “shock protein” that the immune system can’t easily identify.  In the process of trying to neutralize this protein on the nerve endings, it interferes with the function of these nerves and produces an astonishing array of symptoms.  Certain nerves that have an adequate supply of vitamin ‘A’ and the messenger chemical cAMP are often immune to this process.


Lyme Disease Diagnosis

Blood testing for Lyme and the many co-infections is incomplete and unreliable. Some researchers (myself included) are taking a good look at bio-resonance (frequency) testing and treatment. This type of testing can often identify quickly all of the pertinent pathogens in an individual.

Lyme disease treatment

As mentioned, Lyme disease is hard to treat in part because the Lyme spirochete, ‘Bb’, is pleomorphic and flies under the radar of the host’s immune system and hides under biofilms.   Bio-resonance testing and treatment is designed to detect and also to gently but powerfully direct the brain and nervous system to eliminate the bacteria, viruses and mycoplasma.  This is accomplished by dissolving the underlying energetic imprint that is attracting and holding them in a viable state.

In addition to bioresonance treatment, it is helpful to ingest vitamin A as well as vitamin D and Zinc under a doctor’s supervision.  Also milk thistle may be of significant help to the affected nerve tissues.

Considering the failure of the traditional medical model, Lyme diagnosis using clinically and bio-energetically methods and should not rely solely on blood chemistry panels. Treatment must be augmented by detox and reparative therapies. These include protomorphogens, activated stem cells, homeopathic sarcodes and nosodes and specific support of a nutritional nature.

Individual cases may also require carefully selected homeopathic and/or herbal therapies.

Is Lyme Disease Curable?

Lyme disease can be curable if detected within the a few weeks of infection and treated with appropriate antibiotic therapy.  When Lyme’s becomes chronic, a patient can become asymptomatic with skilled holistic treatment.
