Personalized Bio Terrain Therapy for Lyme Disease
Lyme disease, also called borreliosis is caused by the bacterium Borrelia Burgdorferi. The transmission of this bacterium to human is through the bite of an infected blacklegged deer tick. Lyme disease produces a wide range of symptoms and individuals are advised to immediately secure an accurate diagnosis and receive treatment.
“Today was officially the last day of Elijah’s Bio-Terrain Therapy. When he started this therapy, his Lyme was chronic. He had joint and muscle pain that was severe and kept him home bound for the most part. He was like an old man. He couldn’t write or draw. School was impossible as he had bad brain fog. He was crabby and angry most of the time. Migraines happened way too often. After just a few of the treatments, he was joking and teasing people. Today he was asked how did the treatment help him and he said that he had much less pain, more energy and has only had one migraine since the treatment started. I know that he is much happier and so much more active. He has such a better attitude as well. I am just so grateful that I have gotten my son back!” – Bio-Terrain Patient
What are the Symptoms of Lyme Disease?
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the early signs and symptoms that a patient experiences 3 to 30 days after tick bite are:
- Fever, chills, headache, fatigue, muscle and joint aches, and swollen lymph nodes
- Erythema migrans (EM rashes)
Later signs and symptoms that may occur days to months after tick bite are:
- Severe headaches and neck stiffness
- Additional EM rashes on other areas of the body
- Joint pain and swelling, particularly the knees and other large joints.
- Pain, numbness, or tingling in the hands or feet
- Loss of muscle tone or droop on one or both sides of the face
- Dizziness or shortness of breath
- Short term memory loss
It’s important that an accurate diagnosis of Lyme disease is made. Laboratory blood tests are important along with a detailed medical history.
What Treatment is Recommended for Lyme Disease?
At the initial or early stages of Lyme disease diagnosis, antibiotic therapy is usually effective in treating the disease and patients usually recover rapidly. However for some patients they don’t recover and are referred to as “chronic Lyme disease” or Post-treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS).
