The CDC estimates that over 300,000 new cases of Lyme are reported every year.
Lyme disease is the fastest growing disease to date and many doctors are calling it a pandemic.
Because Lyme is so difficult to diagnose, this estimate is grossly inaccurate and underestimated. It’s important to know that the CDC requires 5 specific bands on the Western Blot but they also state that Lyme is difficult to test for and must be diagnosed clinically.
To avoid a chronic infection, it’s critical that you understand what Lyme disease is, how it’s transmitted and how to get a proper diagnosis.
Borrelia, the bacteria that causes Lyme disease, is found in every state in the U.S. and in every country around the world.
There are over 300 strains of Borrelia known to date but in the USA there is only a test for 1 strain.#Lymedisease #Lymeaware Click To Tweet
Lyme disease hides in the body causing it to be very difficult to detect and treat. The bacteria that causes Lyme quickly moves from the bloodstream into other parts of the body such as tissues, cartilage, muscles, and joints.
I’ve put together this chart to highlight some key facts about Lyme.
If you think you might have Lyme disease, don’t waste time, find a physician who understands the complexities of tick-borne diseases as soon as possible. Homeopathic treatment is also an effective way to treat an early infection. Time is an important factor for healing completely.
