Lyme Disease Symptoms | Organic Lyme Disease Treatment
If you think you have lyme disease yet your doctor isn’t certain, I’ve posted my battle with not only Lyme Disease but the same tick gave me Q-fever witch is 10 times worse than Lyme Disease beyond chronic lyme disease. The combo was killing me quickly! In it I mention each organic food, herb and tincture that helped totally eradicate the Spirochete Worm these diseases leave you with. I also have made my blood test available for download. This test is not known throughout all doctor facilities yet it will pinpoint Lyme better than the current usual blood test I struggled with.
What Is Chronic Lyme Disease?
Lyme disease--caused by the Borrelia burgdorferi spirochete--is often transmitted through the deer tick. However, it's not the only source of infection. It can also be transmitted via mites from rats, mice, birds, and maybe even bed bugs. Of course not every mite or bed bug is infected with Lyme disease but in the case of these organisms transmitting skin parasites such as Collembola, Strongyloides Stercoralis, and Morgellons it's estimated that 95% of those afflicted with these organisms have Lyme disease according to Dr. Harvey of Texas.
Usually when inflicted via the deer tick a bull's eye rash develops which is often the tell tale sign of Lyme disease. Treated early on Lyme disease can often be effectively treated with several common antiobiotics. Years ago tetracycline was widely used, today doxycycline and amoxicillin or cefuroxime are used for two to three weeks.
If the disease is more progressed, intravenous antibiotics are used for up to a month.
For even more resistant chronic Lyme disease a rotation of various antibiotics--bactrim for 3 months followed by zithromax for three months and then biaxin for another two months.
With chronic Lyme disease it morphs to hide in yeast. Thus simultaneously Fluconazole (100 mg once/week -- anti fungal) and Flagyl er 750 mg two days in a row per week are often used.
I chose the latter one, Max GXL, and noticed that the swelling and pain in my knee diminished greatly within six weeks.
This disease comes with a very debilitating pain. During my treatments I had 4 different doctors prescribe different levels of strong narcotic pain meds. None helped with the pain, but only made me not care as much. I would only test them out for a day or two, figuring the side-affects were worse than the help each were suppose to provide. I then found the right drug that did the trick and in my research was also a top candidate in helping remove the Lyme Disease and Q-fever. Please visit my blog TheLymeLight for more info.
How Do I Know If I Have LYME Disease?
The bacterium that breeds in the body of ticks causes Lyme disease. This was how I got this disease. However, there is an increase in discussion amongst scientists, as to whether Lyme disease is genetic or not. Recently, they have found a genetic factor that increases the chances of people suffering from chronic arthritis. This can change the disease from an almost unnoticeable ailment to an affliction that may last for many years.
This form of arthritis develops in only, one in ten people amongst whom the disease is untreated. All of them have an inherited factor, a component on the surface of the white blood cells. This chronic arthritis usually contains the same antibiotics that cure arthritis in its initial stage. Often, these drugs are ineffective in their chronic phases.
Recently, scientists and researchers have reported these findings at Stockholm on the Fourth International Meeting on Lyme disease. Researchers are carrying out more studies on the nature of the disease. Until that period, it is important for people who suffer from Lyme disease to have early treatment and undertake preventive measures.
In short, prevention and early detection is the best way to treat this disease.
My Symptoms of Lyme Disease
Swelling and pain came on fast, but not till after about a month from the tick bite. I had not notice I had been bitten, so the symptoms caught me by surprise. What is causing the pain and swelling is the damage the spirochete worm is doing as it moves through your body. They barrel there way under your facia tissue and into your joins. The damage causes swelling that then causes the pain. Then it’s the pain that debilitates movement.
Lyme Disease is Caused by a Tick Bite | Deer Tick
If you ever find a tick lodge in your body, do not try to remove it the old fashion traditional way most will do. Tweezers heated by a match or simply trying to pull it out. This will make the tick spit out more toxins/saliva. Their saliva has tiny spores that react once in your blood stream and begin to multiply.
The Lyme Disease Rash | Bullseye Rash
If you see a bullseye rash once bitten, usually within a few days of being bitten by a tick. You definitely signs of Lyme Disease! Start doing these organic foods right away. Antibiotics wouldn’t be a bad idea either. If you catch it early antibiotics will help. But anything past two weeks, they will do little to no good. At lease that’s what I experienced and have heard from others.
Tick Bites: Lyme Disease Symptoms
The mysteries of Lyme disease and its various maladies is allusive and difficult to diagnose. Because Lyme disease can manifest itself different in each person it infects, there is no hard and fast rule for a set of symptoms being cause for a blood test.
In fact, Lyme disease throws out the rule book for modern medicine. There is only one thing for certain - that nothing is certain. Each person is affected uniquely by the illness and the treatment is specific to each patient as well.
That being said, there is one thing I know, you do not have to have a bulls eye rash, a visible tick bite or flu like symptoms to have Lyme disease. It can be passed to children in the womb and they are researching whether it is sexually transmitted.
Lyme disease can also "co-infect" the patient with other tick borne illnesses simultaneously making the symptoms even more varied and wide.
First, if you are chasing a mystery illness that seems to continue progressing in intensity and increasing in variety of symptoms as doctors try to treat it, that is a strong indicator for Lyme.
Second, if you are a relatively healthy person but seem to continue getting diagnosis for autoimmune disorders - even just one, could also be indicative of Lyme.
Third, multiple unrelated symptoms that occur simultaneouly can point to Lyme. Doctors would tell me my list of indicators were "impossible" to happen concurrently and from one cause, but they were. Keep after it and trust your body and your instincts.
Finally, take your body temperature every morning when you wake up for a week. Low body temperature is a huge indicator of a disease environment in your body, especially pathogenic. Lyme thrives in a low temperature body.
The following chart contains a symptom list for Lyme and its co-infections. The first time I read through it, I was shocked by the list and that it could all be caused by Lyme disease. We are all grossly uneducated about this disease and what it is capable of and what it takes to recover.
