Pasteur, famous for fighting bacteria with vaccines, came to realize that the real problem with infections is the person’s immune system. True, some bacteria are more virulent than others, but even then, those with a healthy immune system do better when infected. This is a key point when fighting ANY infection, even Lyme disease. Ask yourself why millions of people exposed to ticks never develop any problems. Yet, some are said to be incapacitated by this disease. This is no doubt true, but in my experience strengthening the immune system in the gut with an excellent diet and less than 5 supplements one may overcome Lyme disease.
Antibiotics for months are not the answer, neither is dozens of expensive supplements. Recently, the Salt Lake Tribune featured a patient with Lyme Disease on its front page (August 4th 2017). She is shown sitting by a table FULL OF SUPPLEMENTS! Yet, she is not much better.
“Chronic Lyme disease” misdiagnoses increasing, CDC report suggests
The Washington Post (6/15, Sun) says more Americans “are being misdiagnosed with ‘chronic Lyme disease’ and prescribed dangerous and often expensive treatments that do not work,” according to “a report released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.” The article states that the “CDC is trying to raise awareness about the dangers of misdiagnosis and unproven treatments,” adding that study author Christina Nelson, MD, a medical epidemiologist at the CDC, says neither the CDC nor “the National Institutes of Health recommends using the diagnosis ‘chronic Lyme disease,’” which is often a clinical determination lacking “objective evidence” such as laboratory testing.
