CHRONIC LYMES DISEASE
It is estimated that 50% of chronically ill patients have LYME'S DISEASE. Chronic Lyme disease is responsible for a range of medically unexplained symptoms. The disease affects every tissue and every major organ system in the body and is widely under reported.
CHRONIC ILLNESS LINKED TO LYME'S DISEASE
It is estimated that 50% of chronically ill patients have LYME'S DISEASE, a disease discovered in 1975 in Lyme Connecticut by Dr. Steere after an outbreak of what looked like juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
Spirochetes that resemble syphilis were found in the gut of ticks. They were named Borrelia Burgdorferer (Bb). The Borellia is transmitted to humans by the bite of infected ticks from deer and dog ticks. The disease can be carried and transmitted by fleas, mosquitoes, mites, PETS, blood transfusions, and by humans. It can be in raw foods of animal origin, and infected dairy animals.
Ticks are bloodsucking external parasites that feed on humans, wild and domestic mammals, and birds. They are not insects; they uncoil. The spirochetes hide their flagella from the host. Ticks are carried by a number of different host animals as deer, fox, coyote, dogs, cats, cattle, rabbits, skunks, raccoons, rats, and squirrels. Cases of LD being contracted from infected pets bringing infected ticks into their homes. are well documented.
STAGES OF BORRELIA
Borrelia exists in three different life stages: 1) the cyst, 2) the spheroplast which doesn’t have a cell wall (commonly called: cell wall deficient (CWD)), and 3) the typical spiral-shaped bacteria form that has a cell wall and flagella. Humans can be hosts for all three stages of ticks.
