Lyme and its co-infections can be carried by many vectors not just ticks – they include mosquitoes, horse flies, spiders and unprotected sex. If you have had a bite of any kind beware. Particularly a holiday abroad; a walk or time spent in nature: or love making with an infected partner. Also watch closely a child born to an infected mother (who may not even know she has Lyme but has any of the following symptoms).
1 Flu like symptoms: A sudden high or low grade fever or shivers, aches and pains. A general degeneration of wellness over months and years. Feeling great for 6 months then relapse and back to the doctor or health practitioner with something else. Unexplained cardiac problems in fit people.
2 Burnout or Chronic Fatigue: Unexplained tiredness, feeling low, exhausted and normal activities become hard work. Sports enthusiasts – check if there is an inability to train/improve further or maintain your normal fitness levels. Chronic Fatigue sets in and you are unable to go to work. You spend hours each day resting, unable to recover.
3 Digestive issues. Bloating and pain after eating, leaky gut symptoms and food sensitivities. Sudden weight loss or gain for no reason. Craving for sugar and high carb foods to boost energy along with stimulants like coffee.
4 Psychological: Depression, mood swings, anger outbursts or tears. Insomnia. Feeling isolated, misunderstood and often get diagnosed or called by friends a hypochondriac. As Borrelia spreads and attacks the various parts of the body, different symptoms change and emerge.
5 Pain and Inflammation: Arthritis, polymyalgia, gout, and fibromyalgia. Pain moves constantly around the body, muscle weakness and loss of tissue, joints in particular become swollen, stiff and painful as the spirochete loves to hide in these places.
6 Endocrine and Libido: Menstrual problems with hours of vomiting, migraines that can last days. Fertility issues. Lowered or zero libido. Early menopause with night sweats. Hair loss and cracking nails.
7 Parkinson’s/MS/ Alzheimer’s: Advanced neurological Lyme shows up with facial palsy, semi or full paralysis of limbs. Memory loss and inability to make simple decisions. Numbness, shaking or trembling of limbs. Flashing lights in the head. Light sensitivity. Pain that moves through various nerves.
Borrelia attacks each person differently and over time it invades many systems and organs of the body. We don’t know why or where it will move to next. It travels most often through the nerves hence neuroborreliosis is quite common. It is pleomorphic (changes shape in situ), goes intra-cellular very quickly and often forms cysts and biofilms (homes). It often hides in places which are impenetrable to many drugs like antibiotics hence why FAB Health (Frequency and Bioenergy) treatment protocols work so well. Borrelia gives off neurotoxins which are also damaging to the body, requiring skilful detoxification methods.
Lyme and its co-infections are a costly business. You live on endless changing medications or natural health medicine depending on your choices, to try and ease all the new appearing problems.
