If you suspect you have a zoonotic infection, can't afford expensive tests, can't get a diagnose here is a quick way to test yourself: If you get a herx within 14 days further treatment is required.
.

* *This is not the time to put your energies into forcing the M.D.'s to educate themselves of these diseases so they can treat you, nor to force Labs into developing better testing, or taking repeated and many tests to change others or to prove something or to wait (sacrificing yourself) before beginning eradication, or forcing your Government  representatives to make things better for you.... 
Now is the time to take charge of your healthby eradicating these infections before more damage is done within your body and prolonging your recovery process after eradication.

If you experience a Herxheimer reaction from eradicators of bacteria's, viruses, rickettsiae, protozoa's, borrilia's.. then you will know something in your body is being killed by the eradicator and it does not belong in your body.

.
If it is a Test you need immediately here are some suggestions Zyto, dowsing, Muscle Testing, Some Resonance devices or see a Lyme Literate Naturopathic doctor in your area for immediate help.
.
The information here is to prompt the reader to their own research and to quickly eradicate these destructive infections.

Zoonotic Infections Known as Co-infections 
of  Lyme, STARI, or  Borrelia miyamotoi or other Borrelia
coming from tick bites

Lyme & CoInfections Symptoms Comparison Chart

Ticks(or other biting insect)carrying Borrelia infections, such as Lyme, often carry micro organisms that cause other infections. Some of the most common zoonotic infections have been listed here. There may be more. 

New organisms are being discovered in ticks all the time, such as toxoplasmosis, giardia, roundworms, tapeworms, thread worms,amoebas, clostridia, the herpes virus family, parvovirus B 19, chronic strep infections, leptospirosis, molds and fungi, active measles (in the small intestine), Chlamydophila pneumoniae, Human Herpes Virus #6 (HHV6. Note that some of these infections may have already been present prior to being infected with Lyme or other Borrelia. Each add to the complication of Lyme (Borrilia) diseases and other infections that mimic Lyme.

Since few MD's are not literate in Lyme or other zoonotic infections they will not possess the information to recognize symptoms as a zoonotic infection or a specific zoonotic infection.

Co-infections along with Lyme are not all the same in each person. Some Lyme infected people may not have any co-infections at all and then others may have many. 

Any zoonotic infection may be the primary infection and Lyme or other Borrilia may not be present at all.

If you suspect you have many zoonotic infections and  can't afford expensive test, or can't get a clinical diagnose here is a quick way to begin permanently wiping out the zoonotic infections without knowing their individual names.

The worldwide characteristics of Lyme/Borreliosis: 
The borrelia bacteria is a spirochete. (Spiral shaped). There are 36 known species of Borrelia. Most common in zoonotic infections is Lyme or Borreliosis, STARI, Borrilia miyamotoi,and Tick Bourne Relapsing fever. Find more information on Borrilia of Lyme here.

Lyme disease manifests a wide range of symptoms such as inflammation, neurologic, cardiac, musculoskeletal. It can infect all or any system of the body.
1st Stage:  Incubation is 3 to 32 days. Sometimes there can be a target-like rash. Initial flu-like symptoms of fever, headache, malaise, and myalgias. 
2nd Stage:  Problems in Neuro, heart, joints, bursae, tendons, muscle, or/and bone pains. 
3rd Stage:  Untreated people develop Lyme arthritis of large joints.
Each differ somewhat in manifestation of symptoms (even in the same strain.) Few people are infected with only the Bb bacteria, but,are also infected with other co-infections. Therefore not only the symptoms of lyme will be manifested but, also those of each co-infection.

Examples of different Bb symptom manifestations:
Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto: Arthritis, erythema migrans rash, meningoencephalitis, and carditis is common. 
B. burgdorferi sensu lato strain: Inflammation of spinal nerve root, a Borrelia  lymphocytoma nodule, and inflammation of the skin. 
B garinii: Spinal cord involvement Lymphocytic meningoradiculitis (intense pain, mostly in the lumbar and cervical regions, and radiating to the extremities; migrating sensory and motor disorders of the peripheral nerves, peripheral radiculopathies, and cerebrospinal fluid abnormalities, painful (Garin-Bujadoux-Bannwarth syndrome) and chronic progressive  weakness and stiffness of the legs. ( difficulty walking,  etc.) 
Borrelia afzelii: The acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans goes into a progressive fibrosing skin process. 

All zoonotic infections need to be permanently eradicated. Lyme progressively damages the systems of the body. The sooner they are eradicated the less damage needs to heal once all the infections have finally been eradicated.

* Remember Birds carry infected ticks and therefore infected ticks can be found in any area where birds fly as they do carry ticks.

Anaplasmosis- Anasplasma
(previously known as HGA human granulocytic anaplasmosis) 
A Rickettsia: Anaplasma phagocytophilum. A Rickettsiae that occupy a position between bacteria and viruses. It can only survive inside cells.
Transmission:  Ixodes ticks
Incubation:  5-21 days 
Found:   Europe and North America
Rash:   Rarely. When it occurs it is red, flat or raised, pustular (pus-filled blister), or papular. More often individual,localised, and may represent tick bite lesions. 
Symptoms onset:
  • May be symptom-free or have only very mild symptoms. Those of poor immunity may have it severe.
  • Flu like: Fever, fatigue, chills, severe headaches, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite.
  • See more symptoms of Untreated Anaplasmosis
Diagnoses:   Blood test
Eradication of rickettsia:
Energy Medicines, Homeopathics, antibiotics (Tetracycline), Herbs, RIFE, and more.
Babesiosis - Babesia
(There are over 17 different subspecies of Babesia. e.g. B.microti, B. Duncani,  B. divergens, Babesia bovis,Babesia divergens, WA 1.)
Protozoa: A genus of protozoal piroplasms. A protozoan blood parasite, that prefers to live in the red blood cells. In some types of Babesia they live outside the blood cells. The immune system is unable to detect the bacteria within the cells. 
Transmission:  Ixodid (or hard-bodied) ticks, in particular Ixodes dammini (Ixodes scapularis) and Ixodes ricinus. Also transmitted by  flea bite, via blood transfusion and maternal-fetal.
Incubation:  5 to 45 days
Found:   B. microti North america coastal regions,  Switzerland. B. divergens. and  B bovis in Europe ;France, Spain, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Yugoslavia, and the former Soviet Union. Babesia MOI found in southern USA. Mexico. Babesia-WA1  western costal regions of N.america. B. duncani in West Coastal regions  of north america.EU1 B. venatorum in Europe
Rash:   Petechial rash. It may appear as a small, blood-colored pin-prick. Most don't get a rash.
Symptoms onset: 
  • Some people who are infected never experience symptoms. 
(Note: Each different strain produces slight differences in symptoms and complicated by other infections such as Lyme or Bartonella.)

Symptoms Onset: Starts one to 3 months following the tick bite and are gradual and nonspecific.
 

  • Shaking chills, Fever – This may be sustained or intermittent, and temperatures may be as high as 40°C
  • Loss of appetite Nausea,vomiting Abdominal pain, weight loss,  diarrhea
  • Reddish or bloodshot eyes, sore eyes, sensitivity to light 
  • Headache, Neck stiffness, (Sore throat or cough sometimes)pallor
  • enlarged spleen, enlarged liver
  • Malaise,Sweating, Fever and chills
  • Pain in muscles and joints,  weakness
  • Depression, excessive emotional reactions, frequent mood changes. 
  • Hallucinatory and confusional states, delirium, coma and sleep.
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Dark urine

  • Complications from the excessive breakdown of red blood cells may include:
  • Retinal problems 
  • Rupture of spleen,Risk of kidney,liver or heart failure 
  • Relapse, Shock, Coma and even death 
  • Acute respiratory failure, 
  • Jaundice,petechiae 
  • Presence of hemoglobin in urine
  • Diagnoses: 
    Giemsa-stained blood smear.The best chance of producing a positive stain is to draw blood while the infected person is experiencing a fever or chills. There are blood tests available, but the test reliability declines after a few weeks of infection. These tests suffer from the same lack of sensitivity that plagues Lyme disease testing. PCR tests for babesiosis can be useful if positive, but a negative result does not rule out the disease. The organism is rarely seen in blood smears. Testing can be done at Labcorp, Clongen and IgeneX (FISH test).  A doctor, who knows Coinfections, will diagnose from clinical history and physical examination.
    Muscle testing, Zyto Scan, energetic scanning, along with identifying symptoms has been effective in determining if treatment is required so immediate eradication can be started with the Doug Coil.
    Eradication of the protozoa:
    Energy Medicines, Homeopathics, Antibiotics, Herbs, RIFE, orother.
    Antibiotics,B microti include clindamycin (Cleocin), azithromycin (Zithromax), ato-vaquone (Mepron), doxycycline (Vibramycin), and quinine (Quinamm). Combination therapy with either clindamycin and quinine or azithromycin and atovaquone is recommended. 

    If you suspect you have Babesia, can't afford expensive test, can't get a clinical diagnose a not established protozoa can be eradicated in less then 35 days 

    Babesia can last a few weeks or years. See more symptoms of Untreated Babesia

    Brucellosis- Brucella -Also known as Bang's disease, Crimean fever, Gibraltar fever, Malta fever, Maltese fever, Mediterranean fever, Rock fever, or Undulant fever.
    Brucella B abortus accounts for the largest number of human cases of Brucellosis. B suis ranks second, and B. melitensis. B. canis is a rare infection. 

    Brucella bacteria:  Small, gram-negative, non-spore-forming, non-motile, rod shaped coccobacillus bacteria that lives within the macrophage cells, thus having the mechanisms to elude the immune system defenses. 
    The organism   normally enters through the mucous membranes of the throat from where it migrates to the regional lymph nodes. Here it multiplies before being released into the bloodstream from where it enters and resides in the Macrophage System. It invades multiple organs including cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, reproductive, urinary nervous systems digestive system, skeletal, pulmonary. It is a multi-systemic infection. 
    Transmission: 
    1. Infected blood sucking insects, such as ticks, fleas, mosquitoes and other parasites also transmit the infection to humans by bite and regurgitation.
    2. Handling infected animals or being in contact with animal fluids; urine, fluids of their eyes, wounds drainage from abscesses and genitals. The bacteria are able to penetrate open cuts or abrasions in the skin. 
    3. Inhalation from air born contaminants (primarily from occupational exposure meat-processing and livestock industries)
    4. Contact with infected animal feces
    5. Ingesting the contaminated meat, unpasteurized milk, and soft cheeses.
    6. Transmission from infected human to human by sexual contact or from mother to child may occur through breast milk.
    Incubation:  From a few days to a few months. During incubation the organism reside in the lymph nodes.
    Found:   Worldwide
    Rash:   Less then 6% develop a maculopapular rash 
    Symptoms - Onset: There may be an absence of symptoms or flu-like symptoms.

    • chills, 
    • loss of appetite, weight loss,abdominal pain, 
    • headache
    • toxins in the blood, enlarged liver, enlarged spleen,
    • fatigue,(High fever spiking every afternoon. Fever rises and falls in waves), sweats with perspiration (often with characteristic smell likened to wet hay), swollen lymph nodes.
    • weakness,joint pain, body aches, migratory muscle and joint pains, back pain,
    • irritability, depression, 
    • dizziness,
    • chest pain, cough, difficulty breathing,
    • Symptoms may disappear for weeks or months and then return. 
    Diagnoses: 
  • General physical examination usually returns "normal"...nothing wrong with you. 
  • Regular blood tests have a high level of inaccuracy as the Brucella lives within the cells.
  • The Western blot Test detects the presence of antibodies against a microorganism. This test is done by specialized labs.
    • ** Brucella is often misdiagnosed as Leptospirosis, Behçet’s syndrome, Lyme disease, Syphilis, Relapsing fever, Tuberculosis and more. 
      Eradication of the Bacteria: 
      Bed rest is imperative. Energy Medicines, Homeopathics, Antibiotics, Herbs, RIFE, or permanently eradicate it with home remedy.

    Untreated-Chronic Co-Infections

    Lyme & CoInfections Symptoms Comparison 

    Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever 
    also called "tick typhus,” “Tobia fever” (Colombia), “São Paulo fever” or “febre maculosa” (Brazil), and “fiebre manchada” (Mexico).

    Rickettsia:  Rickettsia rickettsii an unicellular,
    Gram-negative coccobacillus (Rickettsiae occupy a position between bacteria and viruses.  They can only survive inside cells)
    Incubation:   2-14 days
    Found in:  Alberta,British Columbia ,North, central. South-Atlantic region, Pacific region and west south-central region of the United States. South america, Europe, Carribean, asia, middle East, Africa, Argentina,Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Panama and Oceana.
    Transmission:  Spread by dog ticks and deer ticks. -Dermacentor variabilis, Rocky Mountain wood tick, Dermacentor andersoni, Rhipicephalus sanguineus, and Amblyomma cajennense. It is possible to contract rickettsial disease from open skin/wound contact with the feces of the American dog tick or the Rocky Mountain wood tick.
    The organism:  They infect endothelial cells lining the small blood vessels and smooth muscles that control the constriction of the blood vessel. They set off an immune reaction in the blood vessel causing the vessel to swell and become leaky.
    Rash:Small, flat pink macules that develop peripherally on the body, such as the wrists, forearms, ankles, and feet. During the course of the infection, the rash will take on a more darkened red to purple spotted appearance.
    Symptoms onset:  Untreated, it can sometimes be a fatal disease. After two to fourteen days, most infected people suffer from 
    • fever (can be very high)
    • nausea and loss of appetite
    • headache
    • achiness,  sore muscles,
    • Petechial rash comes about a week after flu like symptoms begin. A classic symptom is a rash (small, bright red spots) on the palms and soles of the feet, and most people will develop a rash which may begin around the wrists and ankles, but it sometimes starts on the trunk, yet fewer than half of the Rocky Mountain spotted fever infected people will have that.
    • Untreated, half will develop permanent neurological problems. There are reports of infection simply from contact with an infected tick, therefore if you handle a tick while removing it, be sure to wash your hands thoroughly to minimize your risk of infection with Rocky Mountain spotted fever. 
    • Complications can affect any system.
    Diagnoses:
    Like Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever is a clinical diagnosis, which means that it is up to your MD to evaluate your signs and symptoms to determine if you have the disease. Early blood tests are not accurate.
    Eradication of the rickettsia:Treatment:
    Energy Medicines, Homeopathics, Antibiotics (Doxycycline, cloramphenicol ), Herbs, RIFE, or other eradicating agent to permanently eradicateit.

    Other spotted fever group rickettsiae that produce human rickettsioses include R. conorii, R. mongolotimonae and R. slovaca (boutonneuse fever and similar illnesses), R. japonica (Japanese spotted fever), R. sibirica (North Asian tick typhus), R. africae (African tick bite fever),  R. helvetica (perimyocarditis), and R. honei (Flinders Island spotted fever).

    Lyme & CoInfections Symptoms Comparison 
     
    STARI(Southern Tick-Associated Rash Illness)
     Also known as  Masters' disease (Similar to Lyme/Borreliosis disease)often mistaken for Lyme.
    Borrelia: Borrelia  lonestari
    Transmission:  Lone Star tick
    Incubation:
    Found: Great Lakes area,Southeastern and south-central United State, Eastern Canada
    Rash:  Bull’s-eye rash usually appearing within seven days of a  B.lonestari tick bite.
    Symptoms onset:  Resembles influenza, with fatigue. Mild and indistinguishable from those of early Lyme disease. Symptoms similar to those of Lyme disease and often mistaken for Lyme.
  • Sometimes fever (is not characteristic)
  • headache, stiff neck,
  • muscle pains,Sometimes joint pain
  • mild symptoms of fatigue

  • Diagnoses: Blood test 
    Eradication of this Borrilia: Energy Medicines, Homeopathics, Antibiotics, Herbs, RIFE, or permanently eradicate it with home remedy that requires no name.

    Tickborne Relapsing Fever (TBRF)
    Borrelia:Borrelia turicatae Borrelia hermsii (spirochete's) 
    Transmission: Ticks  or a different one by louse.
    Where: Around the world 
    Incubation: Symptoms of TBRF begin abruptly around 2 to 10 days after the tick bite.
    Rashes:Not always present. Flat discolourations 1 to 2cm in size, itchy, with irregular borders, or circular, sharply demarcated, blanching, 18 to 24mm rose-coloured macules, resembling erythema multiforme.Small lumps, small red or purple spots due to bleeding into the skin and facial flushing have.
    The rash usually appears towards the end of the first febrile episode or during the symptom-free interval. The rash usually lasts 24 to 48 hours and may be present over the entire body or in localised areas. Lesions can occur on the face, trunk or extremities
    Symptoms:
  • First stage - 3 to 6 days of fever. Flu like symptoms; Headache, shaking chills, and abdominal complaints, joint and muscle pain, weakness, stiff neck, cough, rapid pulse. First fever episode ends in ‘crisis’, which consists of a markedly high temperature, raised heart rate, and raised blood pressure. After 10 to 30 minutes temperature and blood pressure fall dramatically, with profuse sweats.
  • Symptom-free for around one week, before a recurrence of the fever and other symptoms. 
  • Tickborne Relapsing Fever is characterized by cycles of high fever and shortly thereafter body temperature falls dramatically. 
  • Second stage- Drenching sweats. Severe drops in blood pressure can occur. Often accompanied by fatigue, malaise headache, myalgias, arthralgias, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, conjunctivitis and dry cough.
  • Complications can occur such as myocarditis, meningitis, cranial neuropathies (especially facial palsy) seizures,bleeding, unsteadyness, pneumonia and even coma. Liver and spleen may be affected. It can also cause spontaneous abortion, premature birth or neonatal death. 
  • 3 to 10 cycles and some chronic.Long-term complications occasionally occur. 
  • Diagnoses:
    Blood smear. Serologic assays may be unreliable, and false-positive tests
    Eradication of this Borrelia:
    Energy Medicines, Homeopathics, Antibiotics, Herbs, RIFE, or permanently eradicateit with an eradicating agent that needs no name.
    If untreated, the cycle usually reoccurs to as much as 10 cycles.

    Untreated-Chronic Co-Infections

    Tick Paralysis
    Certain ticks secrete a neurotoxin. During the ticks blood meal it is released into the body. This toxin causes a progressive paralysis, starting in the feet and legs.  May feel listless and not well. Reflexes in affected areas are reduced or absent. Sometimes numbness and tingling in the face and limbs. The removal of the tick reverses the paralysis. If not removed the paralysis ascends and affects respiratory muscles.
    Tick-borne encephalitis (TBEV)
    Virus: RNA virus known simply, as “tick-borne encephalitis virus,” or TBEV. The virus belongs to the genus Flavivirus, which contains several dozen human pathogens, including the causative agents of Yellow fever, dengue fever, West Nile encephalitis, Japanese encephalitis and Powassan fever. (The term “flavivirus” is Latin for “yellow virus”; Yellow fever was so named because of its propensity to turn its victims yellow with jaundice.) Flaviviruses are (mostly) spherical, symmetrical, linear and single stranded.
    Transmission:
    Transmitted to humans by the bite of infected arthropods, primarily mosquitoes and ticks. 
    Treatment:
    Energy Medicines, Homeopathics, Antibiotics, Herbs, RIFE, or permanently eradicate it.

    Tularemia (Also known as rabbit fever)

    Bacteria:  Francisella tularensis
    Occurs:   world wide.
    Transmitted:  Tick or deer fly bites and can be transmitted to humans via the skin when handling infected animal tissue. In particular, this can occur when hunting or skinning infected rabbits, muskrats, prairie dogs and other rodents.Also from infected  pet hamsters.
    Ticks:Dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis),Wood tick (Dermacentor andersoni), and the Lone star tick (Amblyomma americanum). Deer flies (Chrysops spp.)  There are more ways it can be transmitted.
    Incubation:  3 days to two weeks. 
    Rash:   red spot on skin at infection site which enlarges to an ulcer
    Highly infectious: Can enter the human body through the skin, eyes, mouth, throat, or lungs. Symptoms of infection vary depending on the route of entry. 

    Symptoms:

    • high fever, chills, sweating, 
    • inflamed eyes
    • sore throat, mouth sores,headache, 
    • swollen and painful lymph glands
    • stiff joints
    • May include shortness of breath, pneumonia.
    • May include extreme fatigue
