Lyme disease is due to infection by in the Borrelia family. This type of infection is a cork screw or spiral shaped infection which makes it ideal to dig into muscle, tissue, tendon’s and even bone. Like any infection, the immune system has an immediate job of identifying an infection, labeling it properly and fighting it. In some cases, with Lyme disease, the immune system failed this step and a persistent, chronic bacterial infection is systematically infecting many areas in the body.
Once infection with Lyme has passed the acute stage, there becomes complications that may block easy treatment such as antibacterial therapies.
The immune system doesn’t just back off and stop working once it has failed its initial job of killing an infection, the immune system can become tangled up in complicating the infection process. Such complications can generate autoimmunity as the body attacks itself, or create almost a mess like an upset child, or even more complex by generating MAST Cell activation reactions.
Other factors can complicate Lyme infection cases and may have to be dealt with either before or while attempting to address the chronic infection. These factors may include:
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Detoxification issues such as low glutathione
- MAST cell activation
- Immune system
- Digestive issues
- Mitochondrial issue
- Heavy metals
Treatment of Lyme disease TBI (Tick Born Illness) or PTLDS (Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome) is complex and requires a step by step approach taking into consideration, level and type of infection, immune system status, biofilm treatments where infection hides, chronic infection constipation which allows infection to hide in the digestive system, and inflammatory treatments to stabilize the immune system and allow it to achieve optimal function.
There are also key nutrients what when infections depletes them, may create a block to treatment. The main 2 nutrients are carnitine and vitamin A. carnitine depletion will result in a protocol not being carried to where it needs to go and vitamin A deficiency will stop the immune system from killing infection and creating stability.
Those with medical issues need treatment those with infection and complications of infection are conditions that have treatments.
The biomedical approach to treating Lyme disease is a system approach to optimize systems and functions in the body.
Biomedical treatment is not a “quick fix” and this is an ongoing process. Those who undergo long term biomedical treatment generally experience high levels of success.
One of the reasons biomedical treatment is so successful is that it is individual.
