is Lyme Disease or Borreliosis
1.Lyme disease is:
(also called Borreliosis and neuroborreliosis)
A borrilia bacterial infection, most commonly contracted
from a tick bite. A single tick bite can infect its victim with the the
Bb bacteria, as well as with other tick borne diseases, known as co-infections.
Lyme disease can affect any system in the body.
As soon as one system is disrupted, such as the nervous system, it affects
most every other area of the body. The infection will trigger abnormal
physical and sometimes mental symptoms. Lyme disease symptoms look like
other diseases and disorders.
2.Lyme disease is transmitted:
3.Where is Lyme disease found:
Primarily from the bite of a tick.
It can also be transmitted by biting
flies, mosquitoes, fleas, and lice and also from blood transfusions.
And infected mother's have given
birth to Lyme infected babies.
As well, the Bb spirochetes,
of Lyme disease, have been found in many bodily fluids of an infected person.
Precautions should be taken as it has been reported to have been sexually
Lyme is found in areas prevalent with infected
ticks and wherever migrating birds fly. If birds happen to carry ticks,
or the eggs these will start a colony where they happen to land. People
have been bitten and have become Bb bacteria (lyme) infected in every province
in Canada and most countries around the world.
4.Signs you may have Lyme disease:
Since Lyme disease symptoms are very similar
to those of many common infections, and mimic some of the symptoms of over
three hundred other diseases, it can be a problem to discern.
One sign (only reported on about 30% of the
infected bitten)is a rounded flat red rash with clearing in the middle.
It resembles a bulls-eye. (I mistook mine for ring worm.) If you have or
had the bull’s eye rash, you do have Lyme disease. But, you can have the
Lyme infection whether you have seen or not seen a rash or ever had a rash.
Other signs you may have Lyme disease -
- After experiencing the bite or a
flu-like episode, did you start having one health problem after another
or have not felt completely well since?
- Do you appear deceptively well, even when
in intense pain and feeling terribly unwell?
- Do your symptoms linger, wax and wane, change,
come and go?
- Are some of your symptoms dramatic and others
- Do you find yourself describing your symptoms
as weird or bizarre?
- Did all these symptoms start after a certain
month or season or incident?
- Do you have persistent malaise, with periods
of worsening symptoms, often cyclical, repeating every so many weeks or
- Whenever you are over stressed does your pain
rise to a higher level?
- Whenever you fall, injure or cut yourself
- do you feel the injury and its pain lingers an exaggerated amount of
- Does alcohol react on you?
- Is your head unclear, can't remember, thinking
- Have all your medical tests turned up negative?
- Has your MD insinuated your symptoms are not
- Do you know that something is definitely not
right within your body?
If you suspect you may have Lyme disease I suggest
you read through this entire web site. Do your research. Seek to eradicate
this bacteria from your body as quickly as possible.
*If you presently have a
rash it is urgent
to immediately begin home
remedy for a new tick bite or/and get help immediately from your doctor
- MD or ND and insist on four weeks of antibiotics, or get homeopathic
medicine quickly. DO NOT WAIT or linger. Do something now. This is an emergency
(only if you have just been bitten or have the rash). Waiting to eradicate
the pathogens that were injected gives them an opportunity to multiply
and spread in the body.
5.What is Neuroborreliosis:
Neuroborreliosis is when Lyme disease
affects the brain. It is often also referred to Lyme
encephalopathy, Neurological Lyme, and Neuro Lyme.
Neuroborreliosis can start
as soon as twelve hours after the bite when the borrilia begin to infect
the brain and nervous system. Disorders of the nervous
system have been found in 15–40% of late-stage Lyme.
Neuroborreliosis can mimic virtually any type of psychiatric
disorder or any disorder of the brain. It is often compared to neurosyphilis.
Both are caused by spirochetes (albeit different ones). Both are
and can affect the infected person neurologically, producing physical and
cognitive dysfunction and the resemblance of psychiatric illness. Such
symptoms may be dormant, only surfacing years later as the neurotoxins
take its toll. Neuroborreliosis disables most from holding a job, or hinders
job or student performance. Only a small percentage of people "neurologically
Lyme infected" will be properly diagnosed as having Lyme disease.

6.Untreated or improperly
treated Lyme Disease:
7.About Lyme disease:
With antibiotic treatment, some people may never have
a recurrence of symptoms, while others may become seriously disabled from
this disease and require more effective treatment then just antibiotics.
Every body is infected with slightly different infections and also react
differently to the Borrilia infection.
Untreated or inadequately treated; Lyme infection results
in symptoms to appear immediately or may take
months or years to develop symptoms that impair.
Left untreated Lyme Disease can result in neurological
disorders, crippling arthritis,muscular system damage, damaged organs,
blindness, deafness, psychiatric, or psychological disorders... The most
common symptoms are joint or muscle pain (particularly in the feet, knees,
back, or neck), numbness or tingling, particularly at the extremities,
unrelenting fatigue, cognitive disturbances, heart disorders, facial and
digestive system palsies, and vision or hearing abnormalities.
Lyme disease is progressive, destructive, and debilitating,
and in severe untreated cases, it can be fatal, but at that point it is
usually in people that have been misdiagnosed or have taken no means of
Borreliosis and its variants have been known
throughout the world for at least 100 years. There is even evidence that
prehistoric people were infected with tick-bourne diseases. Thirty years
ago Borreliosis was given the name of Lyme disease after a high incidence
of tick bourne diseases afflicted the population of Lyme, Connecticut,
8.Summary of Lyme Disease Infections
The wheels of establishments are slow to turn and
some medical schools may not yet have gotten around to include the latest
Lyme disease information in their text books. So unless a medical doctor
is interested in further education, they will not know the symptoms and
its etiology to properly diagnose Lyme disease, thereby often diagnosing
Lyme disease under another name or disease. Since
the general public and governments rely heavily on "only" medical doctors
to guide us on facts about diseases, Canadians have been left flapping
in the wind from the lack of expertise in Lyme disease from the medical
community. This does not mean Lyme disease is not present in Canada!
Tick bites have always been in the realm of Naturopathic
Doctor's, yet because our free Canadian Health care insurance paying
only for our medical doctor fees leaving us to pay out of pocket for Naturopathic
doctor fees, therefore our population rely's heavily on the Insurance paid
visits to the medical doctors. Yet, in Canada there are mostly only Lyme
literate Naturopathic doctors.
You probably have not heard much about Lyme disease
unless you have read the postings in the national parks or know of someone
that became chronically ill after experiencing a tick bite.
Once you start looking for information on Lyme disease,
most especially on the Internet, you will find many web sites. (Avoid those
luring with skeleton info just to get hits to earn income or sell their
products with false promises to the desperately ill.)
Learn to use the search engine, such as YAHOO
Type in what you are looking for- example: Lyme, neuroborreliosis, etc.
The more you know, the stronger you will be to make good choices for you,
and to walk the journey to reclaiming your mind and body and enjoy a healthy
life in the future.
Lyme disease as it goes...
Lyme disease has been progressively spreading and mutating.
Lyme on the West coast of America is a different strain to the Bb bacteria
on the Eastern coast.
Lyme in Euroasia is also spreading and strains vary.
Over fifty years ago, in Canada, medicare started
paying our bill for health care, but only if it was with a "medical" doctor.
From that point on the Homeopathic/Naturopathic doctors' advice became
more costly for the patient. In time, citizens came to rely only on allopathic
medicines for the treatment of all diseases, including for the sicknesses
that comes from insect bites.
As well, people today now have access to knowledge, from
around the world, about the effects of untreated infected tick bites on
the human body and so they can more readily identify to what is known as
Lyme disease, in spite of being repeatedly given a wrong diagnosis by MD's.
There is much speculation as to reasons Lyme Disease
appears to be more prevalent now than it was in the past. It is also no
longer a secret that there has been many man made bacteria's released on
the world population. The Bb bacteria may just be one of them also or a
long ago bioweapon test gone wrong. Nevertheless it is here in the present
and must be dealt with the best we know how today.
Lyme disease is a severe multi-systemic infection.
When the biting tick was sucking blood as it regurgitated, it injected
the Bb bacteria and most often some co-infections. All these bacteria's,
funguses, protozoas, mycoplasma's, etc., have their own methods of survival
within the human body. Each present exude different toxins, symptoms and
stages. They all sabotage the healthy functions of the body.
9.The three stages of Lyme Disease:
The Bb bacteria pollute the inner environment and
clog the detoxification systems. The systems they trip-up result in malfunction's
here and there and sometimes everywhere in the body. The human body struggles
to survive, to rebalance and to heal itself. Distress is felt throughout
the body. Their toxins affect the peripheral nerves and left to live within
the body the nerves sustain damage, sometimes permanent damage. The body
begs to be cleared of the invaders as soon as possible.
What are the symptoms of Lyme Disease and co infections? It can be anything
and many, many things.
Note that the Stages blend-in altogether and don't necessarily
follow the amount of months/years listed here.
