Is there a cure for lyme disease? Many think not, that you are stuck with it the rest of your days. But I’m here to say I have beat the bug out of my system entirely and I’m back to a real life, working  out and getting things done. My tick bite also gave me Q-fever which is 10 times harder to get rid of and 10 quite possibly times more deadly. I can say that I have cured myself! Is what I’ve done going to do the same for others? I can only say, what do you have to loose, it’s all good healthy foods that anyone should be doing to simply stay healthy.

It doesn’t matter if you are in North Carolina or any other part of the world. These pesky little ticks have migrated almost all over the world. And what’s sad is because it mimics over 300 other diseases, research is at it’s infancy when many have suffered through the ages thinking it was something else. And if I’m correct by listening to my body and curing myself through simple means, it’s a shame we all don’t know about how simple it can be, and quick you can heal.

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.

Chronic Lyme Treatment

Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi which is most often acquired from the bite of an infected Ixodes, or black-legged, tick, also known as a deer tick. Borrelia is a gram negative bacterium. Lyme disease in Europe is more often caused by Borrelia afzelii or Borrelia garinii. areas of New York, where Lyme disease is common, over half of the ticks are infected. Lyme disease has been reported most often in the Northeastern United States, but has been reported in all 50 states as well as China, Europe, Japan, Australia and the parts of the former Soviet UnionIt is transmitted to humans by the bite of infected blacklegged ticks.

4.Muscle pains

5.Stiff neck

6.Joint inflammation

Treatment of Lyme Disease

1.Oral antibiotics Doxycycline - bacteriostatic properties stops synthesis of bacteria replication.

2.Amoxicillin - bactericidal properties kill bacterium, Beta-lactam properties inhibit the synthesis of bacterial cell walls.

3.Ceftriaxone - (intravenous therapy) bactericidal properties kill bacterium. Has central nervous system penetration.

4.Anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen, are sometimes prescribed to relieve joint stiffness.

Tick Lyme Disease Symptoms

Once assumed to be a regional disease largely confined to the
northeastern United States and spread by bacteria carried only by deer
ticks, Lyme experts now report that cases of the illness have been
documented in every state. There is also evidence to suggest that it
can be spread through other means, including mosquitoes and body
fluids. According to JoAnne Whitaker, M.D., of Bowen Research
Laboratory in Florida, "Lyme disease isn't just a tick-borne
infection. I have found the bacteria in every single mosquito that I've
examined, from blood all over California and all over Florida. Dr.
Whitaker believes that "Lyme is the most prevalent disease
there is."

Dr. Tod Thoring is a naturopath and the owner of Pacific Natural
Medicine and Skin Care Centre in Arroyo Grande, California. In his
family practice, Thoring has observed a steady increase in the
frequency of patients with Lyme. Although the evidence suggests that
Lyme is on the rise throughout the country, many people have been told
by medical professionals that Lyme disease does not exist in California.

"The medical community is in its infancy in learning about
this disease," says Dr. Thoring.

Lyme is considered a difficult disease to diagnose and treat. Lyme
symptoms mimic hundreds of other diseases, and has prompted the medical
community's nickname for the disease: the new Great Imitator. The Lyme
bug is a spirochete, the same type of spiral-shaped bacterium that is
responsible for syphilis. Capable of moving through body tissue as well
as the bloodstream, the spirochete can evade the body's immune system,
change from a spiral into a ball and pull a protective shell, a fibrin,
over itself.

The standard antibiotic treatment is not as successful as
antimicrobials, according to Dr. Cowden's studies. "Unless
you start treating the infection during the first three to six
weeks," he says, "patients tend to have to get
repeated rounds of antibiotics longterm, for years and years and
years." Cowden devotes much of his time educating other
medical doctors about the use of antimicrobial herbs to help patients
heal from Lyme disease, and as a result of intensive medical studies,
has developed a protocol with a high success rate.

"We want to try and get as many doctors as possible familiar
with these protocols," says Dr. Cowden. "They're
working well, they're non-toxic, they're not giving the adverse
reactions like a lot of people see, with the fungal overgrowth from
standard antibiotics. And the patients are getting well and staying
well even though the basic protocol is stopped at some point."
