Is Lyme Disease Contagious?
First, forget almost everything you think you know about Lyme disease; it’s not rare, it’s actually an epidemic now in the U.S, The CDC conservatively suggests 300,000 new cases per year, but its probably much higher. And, its not just tick borne; it can be transmitted by fleas, mosquitoes, mites, mice and human to human contacts such as breast milk, placenta, semen, blood transfusions etc. Also, Lyme is rarely cured by a simple course of antibiotics for a few weeks except when it is 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; these tests are often unreliable and give false positives and negatives. And it is even harder to treat using the allopathic-pharmaceutical model. It’s hard to treat in part because the Lyme spirochete (Bb) is pleomorphic and can fly 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 advanced researchers now view this 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
- History of Tick Bite (Not all patients recall a bite)
- 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 can trigger 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 will cause a ring shaped rash. Sometimes the lymphatic system is able to contain the infection but frequently it escapes to infect the joints and the CNS.
What happens in the body after the bite?
Once inside the body, Borrelia Burgdorferi becomes a stealth invader; it can shed its thick cell wall and spiral shape and take on a completely different shape, so that, while under attack from antibiotics or the immune system, it simply changes its shape so it can 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.

How is Lyme Disease Diagnosed?
Because blood testing for Lyme and the many possible co-infections is so 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 can fly under the radar of the hosts immune system and hide under biofilms. And so, the bio-resonance testing and treatment is designed to not only detect but also to gently but powerfully direct the brain and nervous system to eliminate the bacteria, viruses and mycoplasma by dissolving the underlying energetic imprint that is attracting and holding them in a viable state.
In addition to bio-resonance treatment, it is often helpful to ingest large amounts of vitamin A per day as well as some vitamin D and Zinc under a doctors supervision. Also milk thistle can be of significant help to the affected nerve tissues; it can prevent inflammatory reactions in the liver.
Because of the failure of the medical model, the need exists to have Lyme diagnosed clinically and bio-energetically, and not rely solely on inadequate and expensive blood chemistry panels. However, this type of treatment often must be augmented by detox and reparative therapies using protomophogens, activated stem cells, homeopathic sarcodes and nosodes and specific organ and glandular 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 first few weeks of infection and treated with appropriate antibiotic therapy. After that, when it becomes chronic, a patient can become asymptomatic with skilled holistic treatment.
