Understanding Lyme Disease

With over 30,000 yearly cases in the United States alone, Lyme disease is much more common than most people think. Lyme Disease, or Lyme borreliosis, is a bacterial infection caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi. Typically, this disease is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected deer tick. These ticks are generally found in the northeastern and upper midwestern areas of the United States, although cases have been reported in other parts of the country and throughout the world as well.

Lyme disease comes with a wide variety of symptoms depending on the stage of the infection. While individual experiences with this infection vary depending on a person’s genetics, habits, lifestyle, and background, there are common symptoms across all stages of the disease. In early stages, common symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Skin rash (erythema migrans)

As the disease progresses more severe symptoms can occur, including:

  • Joint pain
  • Neurological problems
  • Heart issues

Managing and treating Lyme disease can be a complex process, as oftentimes co-infections are transmitted simultaneously with this disease. Common co-infections include:

  • Babesia
  • Anaplasma
  • Ehrlichia

These co-infections cause additional symptoms to occur, which makes diagnosis and treatment more difficult. With regards to diagnosis, symptoms of Lyme disease paired with co-infections can sometimes present as different medical conditions, which can lead to misdiagnosis. With regards to treatment, the presence of co-infections in addition to Lyme disease can make the healing process more challenging, as individuals may be affected differently depending on the person’s background and the combination of infections.

Healing from Lyme Disease

The path towards healing from Lyme disease is different for each person, as our bodies are all unique. With this in mind, it is important for individuals to understand their own distinctive genetics, lifestyle, habits, and background in order to heal from Lyme disease effectively. By understanding your own unique health profile, you can provide medical experts and holistic healers with the information necessary to tailor a treatment plan that works best for your body and whatever additional underlying health issues you may have.

Medical experts play a crucial role in the treatment and reversal of symptoms associated with Lyme disease. They can provide guidance on how to use antibiotics and other conventional medications to treat your infection, as well as inform you about how Lyme disease and co-infections may react with other health conditions you currently have.

Effectively treating Lyme disease and co-infections doesn’t stop with medical experts, however, as approaching these infections holistically as well as conventionally will result in a better overall treatment and recovery process. By incorporating alternative therapies like herbal remedies, nutritional supplements, and stress/trauma management into your treatment plan, you can work towards addressing the underlying causes of the disease, not just the symptoms, and improve your chances of recovery.
