Lyme Disease in the US — 10 Times Higher Than Reported

By | September 4, 2013

If you have symptoms of Lyme disease (eg. random fast twitches) treated it with a protocol of daily exercise (for oxygen), heat, healthy organic foods and non-antibiotic antimicrobials. If you do this faithfully for about six months, the symptoms should go away.

Lyme 2… It’s worth noting that while many still attribute Lyme transmission exclusively to ticks, Dr. Deitrich Klinghardt, one of the leading authorities on Lyme disease, warns that the bacteria can also be spread by other insects, including mosquitoes, spiders, fleas, and mites. This may be the reason so few Lyme sufferers recall being bitten by a tick. The other reason of course, is that you don’t feel the bite, and usually don’t see the tick!

Lyme 2In fact, fewer than half of Lyme patients recall ever getting a tick bite. Many Lyme patients don’t remember such an event because the tick numbs your skin before biting so it is never felt. In some studies,this number is as low as 15 percent. So, if you don’t recall seeing a tick on your body, that doesn’t rule out the possibility of Lyme disease. There’s even some evidence pointing to Lyme disease being capable of sexual and congenital transmission…

Lyme 2To add confusion to the story of Lyme disease, ticks usually transmit more than the Borrelia organism. They could simultaneously infect you with Bartonella, Rickettsia, Ehrlichia and Babesia. Any or all of these organisms can travel with Borrelia burgdorferi (the causative agent of Lyme) and each causes a different set of symptoms. When a person has Lyme, they often have some co-infections. Simply put, you can have one tick bite, and wind up with five different infections. Each patient with “Lyme disease” presents differently based upon their co-infections, making a standard treatment plan impossible. Treatment is based upon presentation of symptoms….

Update 2018: I did not know at the time I wrote this that people can die of Lyme disease and related infections. I lost someone to it. The medical community in the USA is standardized to a certain script about Lyme disease, and it isn’t entirely logical as far as I’ve been able to determine. For example, I was told that it is very unusual for one organism to cause a wide variety of different symptoms and that there are no neruological effects from Lyme spirochetes, and yet, Syphilis (caused by a similar spirochete) is known as “the great imitator” and it definitely has neurological effects. Bringing this up only served to annoy my conservative neurologist.

If you take an antibiotic, make sure it crosses the blood brain barrier. Doxycycline does, but it is a very difficult call regarding taking doxycycline if you read the side effects and bad experiences people have had. It makes Lyme go into hiding, but doesn’t kill it all, and like other antibiotics, may kill off your healthy gut microbes and weaken your overall immunity.

It is worth your time to investigate alternative anti-microbial treatments as some of the symptoms of Lyme disease are similar to the effects of standard anti-biotics. One of the simplest and safest things you can do is to use Stevia with every meal. It kills all three forms of Lyme spirochetes: spirals, bio-films, and round bodies. Grape seed extract, liposomal vitamin C and nano-silver are others that seem to help a great deal.  Keep at it every day for 6 months, switching up what you take, and take breaks of a day or two and hit it again as it comes out of hiding. It takes time.
