Lyme/Tick-Borne Disease

We originally thought of Lyme disease as primarily an infection caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi. In the decades that followed, researchers began identifying other tick-borne bacteria and toxins that frequently accompany Lyme infections. We have come to realize that the symptoms which we once described as “Lyme disease” frequently involve other bacteria, such as Babesia, Bartonella, Ehrlichia, or Mycoplasma, or rarer species such as the Rickettsia group or tularemia. Transmitted in the digestive tract of ticks or fleas, these pathogens may be carried by cats, rats, mice, deer, and other animals, depending on the microbe. These pathogenic bacteria are among the smallest known life-forms on earth. Unlike most bacteria, they are harbored within the cell as a virus would be or within the interstices between the cells, making it difficult for the immune system to dislodge them. Fungal toxins, heavy metals and chemical toxins may also be part of the picture. All of these being neurotoxic in nature. There are common mechanisms of action with all of these which can result in inflammation, build up in the cell and disrupt self-regulatory mechanisms.
