Thus, the patients were functioning well, except for more body pain and physical limitations in untreated patients in the facial palsy group.

To contract Lyme disease, an infected deer tick must bite you. Symptoms are similar to those that can occur after other infections and stressors to the body. Known laboratory testing for Lyme disease relies on antibody production which may not occur until several weeks after infection. Uncovering effects of antibiotics on the host and microbiota using transkingdom gene networks.

The results challenge the notion, strongly held by some patients and advocacy groups, that Lyme disease, a bacterial infection, has a tendency to resist the usual treatment and turn into a chronic illness that requires months or even years of antibiotic therapy.

People so identified were invited to undergo the same evaluation as the case patients. Spector, a cancer researcher at Duke Medicine, went undiagnosed with Lyme disease himself for four years in the 1990s. No drug on earth can provide the range of benefits present in medicinal herbs! Herbs reduce inflammatory messengers called cytokines generated by the microbes, shift the balance of the immune system away from inflammatory processes, and restore the ability of the immune system to function normally.
Why Antibiotics Have Limited Use for Chronic Lyme Borrelia clears the blood quickly and uses its corkscrew shape to penetrate deeply into tissues including joint cartilage, brain, nerve tissue where it is protected from antibiotics and the immune system.
