LYME CO-INFECTIONS

 
CO-INFECTIONS
I am asked often about my wife's and my lyme issues and I usually say “so so”. Buy then sometimes people want to know what some of these other ailments are that we talk of and why are we challenging yet another ailment. I begin to tell the person that lyme is often just one of the infections you get from a tic bite. (((( There is a brochure and booklet that you can get by contacting the Lyme assoc. Www.lymepa.org or your local lyme group as mine is www.ahope4lyme.org and they can help you further as much of my info. comes from those groups. You can also contact me at www.throughchallenge.com and my contact page at this website and join me in my blog.)))) There is a group of co-infections that often come with a tic bite and they are becoming more prominent as our lymers ( Lyme infected Doctors ) as we like to call them learn and challenge each infection that an individual may have. I was tested positive in 05 with lyme and the test was in infancy stages and very accurate for it became a good tool but not as good as a lyme literate doctor who often shared in the unfortunate infection. Now with better tests the labs can find different strains of tic bite diseases like B.Burgdorferi which is what the lyme causing bacteria is called and then co-infections Babbesiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Bartonella, Rickettsia, Candida. These co-infections complicate things dramatically and may take years to tackle one or two, Or you may be able to take a certain med combo for one Co-infection and not for another. Sometimes You find stomach bacteria such as H.Pylori that is a gut infection that has been around infecting much of the worlds population by 50%. A person who has a lot of trouble keeping meds down could have H. Pylori. What I think happened in our experience was the meds were put into the gut to combat a tic related disorder and it would end up doing battle with the H Pylori that would always win the battle. Then the Doctor stepped back and took a test for H. Pylori and received a positive test. The H. Pylori was treated with 10day treatment and now we are treating lyme and co-infections. If you suffer from over bloating, Diarrhea, constipation, or just out of the blue stomach discomfort. You might talk with your doctor about it or have him refer you to a stomach specialist..There you have it in a nut shell and it gets much more complicated and to dump all of this on a mainstream family doctor is a bit much I'm sure. But as I say in many of my articles. A really good lyme doctor often either has lyme or is treating somebody very close to his heart with lyme. Thank you, Author-David R Thomas
