Lyme Disease Diagnosis
Being diagnosed for lyme disease is hard to figure out if it’s really lyme or the other 300 diseases it mimics. You can get bit by a tick that can give you lyme disease just about anywhere in the US, even in Wisconsin Dells.
Chronic or late-stage Lyme Disease tends to affect people who have big things to offer the world. These people may already seem to be "on their path" and often excel in multiple areas at once, including the healing arts. The illness seems to appear in people who could go even deeper with their healing and creative gifts but for one reason or another feel locked into their current lifestyle. Perhaps they have unexpressed creative gifts like photography, painting or writing. Maybe they've been waiting for life to "let up" before they indulge such longings. But the creative pursuits themselves offer healing - not just for the Lyme folks, but for the world in a bigger way.
On the soul level, Chronic Lyme shows up like a roto-rooter, forcing people to dig deep and remove ALL blocks to creativity and healing. To the outside world, these people usually look like they have no blocks because they're moving so effectively through life, but Life has other plans. It's as though these souls came in with a bigger mission than their current lifestyle or world view allows. They may get nudged a few times, but if they don't respond fully, then along come some little spirochetes to terrorize the immune and neurological systems into action. Like a guerrilla army, the bacteria sneak inside without detection and then launch a massive attack that captures attention through shock and awe.
As such, Lyme remains a very difficult disease to treat. Most of those affected are, in this lifetime or certainly in previous ones, highly advanced healers. This awareness (whether conscious or completely subconscious) makes them adept at sidestepping treatments that would bring about healing before the lessons take root. Intuitively, Lyme sufferers have a sense that something needs to shift, even though they may not realize what or to what degree things need changing. This remains true of most diseases. Lyme just seems to operate at a faster and more aggressive level, outsmarting anyone who might offer relief before the soul receives its full blessing. Actively looking for that blessing speeds healing. Once the disease has served its ultimate purpose, it can fade away, leaving the survivor stronger, wiser and more compassionate for having taken the journey.
Lyme Disease Symptoms
The first symptom is visual in some cases. A rash resembling a bullseye is a certain sign you have lyme disease. In two to four weeks, if not treated symptoms can become severe with lots of pain.
The treatment of Lyme disease can be very effective with homeopathic treatment.
Lyme disease is caused by an insect bite, in particular a tick bite. Sometimes the tick can be so small as to be unaware of the bite until symptoms arise. Symptoms include a rash at the site of the bite soon after the bite, progressing to symptoms of the flu, then joint, heart and nervous system involvement.
There are three stages of Lyme disease. The immediate stage characterised by a rash, the intermediate stage which can include heart symptoms, nervous system symptoms and meningitis and the late stage characterised by arthritis as well as the nervous system involvement.
The longer ago the bite was, the more complicated your condition will be, especially if you have had various treatments. Seeing a professional homeopath is likely to help you more than struggling with your own treatment.
The treatment of Lyme disease with homeopathy can be fast and non invasive. However, it's also worth bearing in mind, that you only develop serious disease because your immune system is not operating at it's full capacity. If it was, you may be bitten, but suffer no sequelae to the bite.
Focus on improving that for better future health.
Lyme Disease Stages
If not taken serious, symptoms then can turn to neurological causing memory loss and motor movement disability. And in some serious cases, death.
There are many kinds of ticks on animals that people normally don't bother about. However, in the U. S., a disease was identified in 1975 that originated from ticks found in deer. This tick disease is called Lyme. Before discussing the symptoms for Lyme disease, it is wise to understand the cause of the illness.
This illness comes of a bacteria known as spirochete. A particular species of this bacteria known as Borrelia burgdorferi is found in ticks. Apart from Montana, most of the states in America have been known to be affected by this illness and is popularly known as deer tick since the adult form of this bacteria lives on deer.
When the ticks drink the blood of the deer who is suffering from Lyme illness, and bites in its nymph stage, the human body becomes infected without knowledge of the bite. Most people who catch it are outdoor sports lovers or campers.
If the signs of this sickness are ignored and the disease is left untreated, it is an invitation to arthritis in the next couple of months, especially in the knees. A person may feel arthritis shifting from one joint to another in regular or intermittent periods. If the Lyme disease is left untreated for a long period of time, people will go through chronic arthritis.
Test for Lyme Disease
Please take the time to read this 15 minute blog. It tells of how someone beat Lyme Disease and Q-fever, both contracted from the same tick bite, but Q-fever being 10 time worse than Lyme Disease. He tells of how doctors were not able to cure him and at his last hope found several natural foods that turned his health around within a week. On deaths door to a full recovery. Check out the simple ways he cured lyme disease with organic foods.
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.
Cure for Lyme Disease
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.

Bee Pollen and Lyme Disease: The Healing Match
Lyme disease is spread by deer ticks and is caused by a spirochete bacteria name Borrelia burgdorferi. When the bacteria reach the bloodstream and are spread throughout the body, it can cause signs and symptoms ranging from mild to severe.
Deer ticks are the vector insect of this kind of disease. B. burgdorferi lives in the saliva of the tick and when the tick bit a person, the bacteria is introduced inside the body. B. burgdorferi will then travel the bloodstream and infect different body parts such as the nervous, integumentary, and musculoskeletal system.
Its most noticeable symptom is the rash that it creates, which is an immune response of the body to the invading foreign bacteria. The rash is developed by the time the deer tick bit a person. The tick's saliva is a perfect nourishing substance for the bacteria. The tick's saliva itself contains chemical that can disrupt or damage the local immune system. When the skin's immune system is compromised, it can serve as a breeding ground for the bacteria. From the site of the bite, the spirochete bacteria will then asexually reproduce and will spread outwardly. This is the main reason that lyme disease rash is circular in appearance. In some unknown reason, the neutrophils, which are the body's antigen for invading bacteria, do not respond promptly to the site or failed to take action.
Circular rash has 5 to 6 inches diameter
"Bull's eye" rash
Occasionally itchy or painful
Signs of inflammation may or may not be present
Shooting pain that leads to sleep disturbances
Lyme disease has many other complications that may even affect mental and emotional health. This is the main reason that early detection and prompt medical attention should be given. Lyme disease may not be serious at first, but the later stages of the disease may lead to debilitating effects.
What is chronic Lyme disease?
Chronic Lyme disease is widely unrecognized and unknown in today's popular contemporary medical field - in fact it creates defensiveness and denial when mentioned in many circles.
Chronic illness in and of itself has long existed and acknowledged throughout the world. On Ask.com, the following answer appeared after asking what is chronic illness:
A chronic disease is a disease that will last for a long time or will come and go, but always be a part of your life. Some chronic diseases include Fibromyalgia, COPD, diabetes, cancers and the different types of arthritis.
When I look up chronic on dictionary.com, I get words like "constant, habitual, continuing for a long time or recurring frequently, having a long duration." The Word English Dictionary adds "developing slowly, very bad and very serious" to the list.
The idea that today's Lyme disease is a singular culprit exists in traditional circles, but not in actual Lymies. We know that Lyme disease always travels and infects in multiples. Can you imagine if the mainstream media and medicine had to suddenly accept that most diabetes patients also simultaneously had stomach cancer or MS? Or that kids who got mono also had Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at the same time? The system would real from the ripples of confusion and fear this would create.
Chronic Lyme will not be the end of you or your life - it feels like it and if not properly treated, it can be. It is brutal and difficult and has taken the lives of many who fought the good fight, but more because the lack of doctors, treatment and financial availability.
Would I have gotten so sick if someone would have found the Lyme years ago before all the slow damage? Could I have been spared the 2 years of the Lyme pit if it were more widely understood and well known? If we had an early detection system would there be such widespread Chronic Lyme at all?
We are the cusp of a Lyme revolution. Keep talking about it, keep researching, keep seeking truth in this Lyme battle. Be a Lyme evangelist with me.
