    • Discovering Best Clinical Options ForLymeDisease and Lyme DiseaseTreatmentLymeDisease Misunderstood Leading to Unsatisfactory Lyme Disease Treatment ProtocolsLyme disease, also known as “the great imitator” is among the most misunderstood and widelygrowing diseases in our nation. Because its symptomology resembles that of so many othermaladies and because the conventional medical community continues to be under-informed,suffering patients fail to receive theLyme disease treatment necessary to restore their health.Because Lyme disease is so misunderstood, standard treatment typically lasts only 4-6 weeks,with extensive treatment widely believed unnecessary. As a result, many insurance companiesrefuse to cover appropriate treatment and residual Borrelia reemerges post-treatment, andpatients often relapse with Lyme or more importantly, Lyme Disease Complex. To furtherobscure matters, most patients diagnosed with Lyme disease are unaware of the full “complex”of co-infections and neurotoxins that linger in their system - eradicating the possibility ofprescription medication being a viable, stand-alone Lyme disease treatment.Before We Can Talk About LymeDisease Treatment, We Must Understand What Lyme DiseaseComplex Is
    • In the world of conventional medicine protocols, there is often debate if chronic Lyme diseaseis truly a disease at all. Others recognize that patients suffer with Lyme disease symptomsassociated with Borrelia contracted through tick bites. Unfortunately, most care providers donot have true LLMDs (Lyme Literate Doctors) on staff who recognize the complexity, severity,and difficulty that is Lyme disease treatment. To gain a better understanding, the following areamong the most common infections that can play a role in Lyme disease. They are all potentialcontributors to what Envita Medical Centers calls Lyme disease complex – a confluence ofinfections that may simultaneously include bacterial, viral, parasitic, and fungal co-infectionsthat all require specific Lyme disease treatment and protocol customization to help patients inthe long term. 1. Borrelia(B. burgdorferi) –The most recognized infection in Lyme disease which is often considered to be the tick-borne infection that Lyme disease itself. While it is a major contributor, borrelia alone makes up but one of the numerous infections that make up Lyme disease and make Lyme disease treatment so difficult. 2. Bartonella – Bartonellahenselae is the causative agent of the notorious cat-scratch fever, endocarditis, and several other serious diseases in humans. These bacteria comprise one of Lyme disease Complex’s most troublesome co-infections. The bacteria are transferred by fleas, body lice, and ticks – with ticks being the greatest source of human bartonellosis infection, often accompanied by Lyme disease. Sand flies carry the bacteria in Peru’s Andes Mountains, Colombia, and Ecuador while human body lice carriers are found throughout the world. The European sheep tick is a known carrier and five different species of Bartonella have been detected in nearly 20 percent of I. Pacificus ticks collected in California. 3. Epstein-Barr (HHV-4) – This is a common human herpes virus that will infect virtually everyone on the planet at some point in their lifetimes. It is possible for EBV to remain dormant in the body throughout the entirety of an individual’s life span. Typically, the disease is transmitted via saliva and takes 30-45 days to present with symptoms – if it does at all. During this period, the host is most likely to spread EBV to others. However, when these infections last as seen in chronic fatigue patients it becomes essential to test for chronic Lyme disease complex and its co-infections and immunity. Lyme disease treatment becomes necessary as multiple infections can often awaken dormant infections such as Epstein-Barr. 4. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) -Approximately 80 percent of adults in the United States are infected with cytomegalovirus (CMV). It is a member of the herpes family and shares the
    • common ability to remaining alive, yet dormant, in the human body for the life of its human host. Rarely does CMV become active unless the immune system is weakened – as it can easily be (and most often is) with Lyme disease infections overwhelming the immune system.5. Babesiosis- Intraerythrocytic parasite Babesia microiti causes Babesiosis, an infection that dwells inside red blood cells. It is transmitted by the same tick that transmits B. burgdorferi, the causative agent of Lyme disease. 41 percent of patients dealing with Babesia develop serious complications including acute respiratory failure, disseminated intravascular coagulation, congestive heart or renal failure. Complex babesiosis is regularly associated with the presence of severe anemia and high parasitaemia levels. Chronic babesia has been known to trigger cardiovascular, kidney, and liver problems in patients. Babesiosis is clearly a dangerous component of Lyme disease and must be tested for and if necessary, covered with a comprehensive Lyme disease treatment.6. Human Herpes Virus 6 –Lyme disease complex may also include human herpes virus 6 (HHV-6) has since become one of the most widespread members of human herpes viruses and comes in two related variants: HHV-6A and HHV-6B. HHV-6 is known to attack specific cells including but not limited to CD 4 lymphocytes, NKTs, oligodedrocytes, CD8 cells, and microglial cells. Moreover, this virus is immune suppressive and also activates other viruses in the process. While HHV-6 can remain latent for long periods of time, it can reactivate and cause infection quickly. A comprehensive Lyme disease treatment must be implemented to combat HHV-6 and other Lyme disease complex infections.7. Ehrlichiosis - Ehrlichiosis is a seriousLyme disease co-infection disease caused by rickettsial-type (specific bacteria) organisms and comes in two specific forms; Human Monocytic Ehrlichiosis (HME) and Human Granulocytic Ehrlichiosis (HGE). In most cases, Ehrlichiosis is self-limiting and not fatal with death rates in large, unselected series ranging from 1 to 8 percent [3,6-8]. This contrasts sharply with the high death rate in patients who are immunocompromised. By definition, however, Lyme disease patients are in the dangerous “immunocompromised” category. That is why it is so important for patients to receive an aggressive and comprehensive Lyme disease treatment plan.8. Chlamydia pneumonia - Chlamydophila pneumoniae (formerly known as Chlamydia pneumoniae or CP) are bacteria infect humans and can lead to pneumonia. They are a type of Chlamydia. Chlamydophila pneumoniae has a complex life cycle and needs to infect another cell to reproduce themselves. The disease was usually started as
    • respiratory infections, to then more or less unnoticed in the body and spread to infect other tissues as Nerves, brain, muscles, blood vessels and even cells of the bodys own immune system, the macrophages. CP itself produces at least two toxic substances that cause tissue destruction and inflammatory burden, as well as a chronic immune activation and the body with a toxin load. CP Survive in the cell such as a parasite steals energy and to reproduce themselves. Therapy, however, must be carried out effectively until CP is destroyed in all three stages, which are thus no re-infection and is a critical part of Lyme disease treatment in cases where CP is present. 9. Candida - The most common organism implicated in fungal infections is the ubiquitous Candida, which is found in the human digestive tract, mouth, and genital region (Eggiman P et al 2003). Under normal circumstances, levels of Candida are controlled by beneficial bacteria. However, if the bacteria-fungus balance is upset, by the use of antibiotics for example, or if the immune system is compromised, an overgrowth of Candida can occur, resulting in infection. As the immune system is always compromised by the presence of chronic Lyme disease - the presence of Candida must be aggressively addressed in a comprehensive Lyme disease treatment.As dubious as the above maladies seem, it is equally important to point out that only 13% ofinfections that exist around the world have actually been identified. Among these are zoonoticinfections (those coming from animals) - making Lyme disease treatment among the mostcomplex to approach.The Reality of LymeDisease and Lyme Disease Treatments That Can Actually WorkIf Lyme disease is caught early, it can be treated relatively well with a reasonable course ofantibiotics. However, in the great majority of cases,Lyme disease is not caught by either thepatients or their physicians at its onset - if they do at all. For patients who have had Lymedisease for more than a year, significantly more extensive Lyme disease treatment is necessary.The standard prescription of antibiotics is generally far too insufficient in treatingLyme diseasecomplex or as a stand-alone Lyme disease treatment. Antibiotics do not help the body rid itselfof the mycotoxins or BLP (bacteria lipoprotein neurotoxins) caused by Borrelia, nor are theyeffective in treating the various viral, fungal, and parasitic co-infections attendant to Lymedisease. These co-infections are found in some combination in virtually every Lyme diseasepatient and must be dealt with in any worthwhile Lyme disease treatment.In fact, is not uncommon to see 4 or more combinations of infections in chronic Lyme diseasepatients. Often months, or even years of treatment are necessary to eradicate the stubbornBorrelia from the body – not to mention the multitudes of other attackers liberated by the
    • presence of Lyme disease complex in the body. Chronic Lyme disease treatment requires anorganized and customized program that includes reestablishing immune function and stasis forpatients. Simply administering medication will not work and can even make matters worse. Forexample, doctors who attempt to treat patients using anti-malaria drugs such as plaquenil,commonly fall short as they fail to address the immune system.Chronic LymeDisease Awareness and EffectiveLyme Disease TreatmentTreatment of Lyme disease must be directed at more than just the infections. Diminishinginflammation, supporting the immune system, detoxification of BLP’s, and addressing hormonedeficiencies are vital to a comprehensive chronic Lyme disease treatment plan. If patients areon other medications or pain killers, a delicate approach is needed to transition them to betterquality of life. In fact, when patients say they have Lyme disease, or Lyme disease doctors seepatients - it is a recognition that they are dealing with a combination of infections, as well as animmune compromised state. While the infections present may vary from case to case, theproblem at hand is Lyme disease complex, or "a combination of infections”.Envita’s Experience is the Differencefor Lyme Disease Patients and Life-changing LymeDisease TreatmentEnvita has worked in the areas of Lyme disease research and Lyme disease treatment for almosta decade. Our experiences have led to faster, more effective progress in Lyme diseasetreatment. At Envita, we address and examine all factors of Lyme disease, understanding thathandling Lyme’s co-infections is just as critical as direct treatment of the primary disease.Grasping the concept of co-infections and body’s homeostasis imbalances is the reason why wecall it Lyme disease complex and why Envita leads the World in effective Lyme diseasetreatment.To further complicate matters, many Lyme disease infections dwell within the red and whitebloods cells making them very stealth and as a result, extremely difficult to treat. They canescape the bodys immune defenses and reproduce within the healthy cells. Envita takesadvantage of special shuttling agents to effectively address and treat these infectionsLyme Disease Treatment and Complications of Lyme DiseaseThere has been much talk about Bioflim communities that protect the infections from thepenetration of medications. In many cases these Biofilm communities must be stripped anddiminished through proper treatment and lifestyle changes.Another scenario to be aware of, as it pertains to Lyme disease treatment, is self-synergisticreplication. In this situation, many infections can communicate with and "turn on," or
    • activate,the replication of other viruses already present in the body.All the while, the patientmust deal with numerous symptoms that may present as digestion problems, cognitivedifficulties, chronic pain, sleep deprivation, and hormonal imbalances - just to name a few.Does Chronic Lyme Disease Exist and is Lyme Disease Treatment NecessaryLyme disease does undeniably. And even though many researchers will say the patient reallydoesn’t have Lyme disease in the classical laboratory form - patients still often suffer from havea combination of the infections we mentioned earlier - and they need to all be treatedsimultaneously to really provide effective and sustained relief for patients.It is also important to realize that many laboratory tests provide false negatives meaning thetest comes back negative when the patient actually has an infection(s) present. Some of themost common reasons for are immune systems that are too weak to weak to mount a properantigen test. However, if an immune system challenge is conducted, one may see a positive testreturn for these patients. Additionally, many of these infections do live intra-cellularly and as aresult come back with false negative results.At Envita,we have developed a strong combination of tests to identify specific immunologicalfactors and a comprehensive clinical overview to help patients find and treat all the factors ofthe Lyme Disease complex.Envita’s Approach to Tackling Lyme Disease and Identifying the Ideal Lyme Disease Treatmentfor Each PatientBecause Lyme disease is so complex, extensive and comprehensiveLyme disease treatment isvital. At Envita, Lyme disease treatments are not limited to antibiotics, rather administered inconjunction with aggressive natural therapies from around the world.As part of our Disease Solutions Program®, we take an integrative approach toLyme diseasetreatment, utilizing anti-viral, anti-parasitic, and anti-fungal approaches - depending on the co-infections and symptoms present in each individual. By addressing all Lymedisease complexfactors, we achieve better results with our incomparable Lyme disease treatments.We implement innovative treatments to help patients achieve a full-grasp of their disease,thereby providing them with the ability to turn it around. Our comprehensive approach totreatment helps speed healing time, raise quality of life, and minimize the recurrence of Lymedisease.
