5 Essential Strategies for Treating Chronic Lyme Disease

  1. 1. 5 Essential Strategies for Treating Chronic Lyme DiseaseLyme disease was first discovered in Lyme, Connecticut in 1975. On July 16, 2009,Connecticut Governor M. Jodi Rell signed into law, a bill that protects physicians whotreat chronic Lyme disease. Nevertheless, despite the Disease’s public recognition –improvement in treatment strategies still must be advanced and refined to properlyassist patients.Lyme disease is a multi-system condition that often carries co-infections which caninterfere with its diagnosis. The disease can also influence and exacerbate otherchronic medical conditions. To further complicate matters, many patients who havebeen diagnosed with and been treated for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndromeare actually fighting tick-borne infections or their co-infections, therewith.5 Keys to Understanding Chronic Lyme DiseaseAnything that is worth doing typically requires more than a single step to complete. Suchtasks take time, most of which requiring hard work and sustained effort.One mustprepare, implement a strategy, and then persevere until the conclusion is reached. Withthat said, our Lyme disease protocol has taken roughly a decade to assemble by takingon each facet one by one, until the big picture fell into place.The proper way to grasp what we like to call “Lyme disease complex” requires adheringto five essential strategies that improve both the approach and end result. They are asfollows:Strategy 1 - In chronic cases of Lyme disease you will always have more than one typeof infection present at the same time. In fact you will see bacterial, viral, fungal, andprotozoa all co-existing. This is of crucial significance because ifyou treat only oneinfection, the patient will not improve and is likely to relapse quickly. It also means that

It is important to not overlook this,because you will be dragged into the cycle of long-term struggles with no real recovery.Physicians who are not “Lyme literate” typically fail to address all contributing infectionsproperly.Strategy 2– Lyme’s complex of co-infections leads to an immune compromised state.And similar to when there is an infection with HIV, the immune system cannot do its jobproperly.This why so many symptoms present that mimic so many different diseases(auto-immune-like diseases, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and up to 300 plusmedical conditions.)Most patients will typically visit numerous doctors on their journey to getting well. Yousee, Lyme disease gets all the “press”it is likely not the only infection causing illness –the very reason it is better to think about it as a “Lyme disease complex” which is moreof a multi-complex of infections. With this complex, not everyone will have the sameinfections – some may suffer with various tick borne co-infections along with otheractive viral combinations, and so forth.Add in the likelihood they could be dealing withvarious genetic forms of these infections as well, and the Disease becomes a bear totreat. Because the immune system is directly under fire, the patient is vulnerable toother infections that would normally be harmless. The patients’ defenses have beencompromised.Strategy 3 – Our studies further suggest that these infections mayactually communicatethrough synergistic mechanisms of replication. This may involve complex cell to cellsignaling between infections and co-infections, meaning if only one infection is treated,the others may grow and ultimately and can help to re-establish the core infection.Envita’swebinars discuss this point in great detail to ensure that treatment protocolsinclude multi-infection approachesin addition to simultaneous and ongoing immunesystem reconstitution.Strategy 4 - Understanding that biofilm plays a role in protecting the infections fromstandard treatments like antibiotics is also a critical piece of information. Biofilms mustbe stripped away, at the same time, to effectively treat the infections.Strategy 5 - Lyme infections and its co-infections release neurotoxins that are difficultfor the body to excrete and eliminate because they compete with myriad receptor sitesthroughout the body - including neural and hormonal. This neurotoxin release can andwill disrupt every normal and necessary function bodily function. By making targeteddetoxification a part of Lyme disease’s treatment plan, it makes recovery far moreattainable. That being said, neurotoxins can take long time to remove by means of aprocess that is fairly complex.When one considers all 5 strategies outlined above, it is clear why so many patients intreatment fail to get acceptable results.
