Overcoming Lyme Disease Complex & Understanding Complete Lyme Disease Treatment

  1. 1. Overcoming Lyme Disease Complex & UnderstandingComplete Lyme Disease TreatmentOvercoming Lyme Disease Complex & UnderstandingComplete Lyme Disease TreatmentLyme Disease Misunderstood Leading to Unsatisfactory LymeDisease Treatment ProtocolsLyme disease, also recognized as “the great imitator” is essentially one of the mostmisunderstood and widely growing illnesses in our country. Because its symptomologyresembles that of so many other diseases and because our conventional medicalcommunity basically continues to be ill-informed, stricken patients fail to receive theLyme disease treatment necessary to restore their health. Because Lyme disease is sogenerally misinterpreted, standard treatment typically lasts only four to six weeks, withextensive treatment widely believed to be unwarranted. As a result, many insurancecompanies refuse to cover appropriate treatment and residual Borrelia reemerges, thus,patients often relapse with Lyme or more importantly, Lyme Disease Complex. Tofurther complicate matters, most patients diagnosed with Lyme disease are ignorant ofthe full “complex” of co-infections and neurotoxins that reside in their system -eliminating the possibility of prescription medication as a viable, lone Lyme diseasetreatment.Before We Can Talk About Lyme Disease Treatment, We Must Understand WhatLyme Disease Complex Is
  2. 2. In the world of conventional medicine protocols, there is often lively debate regardingwhether chronic Lyme disease is truly a bona fide disease, Others recognize thatpatients do indeed suffer with Lyme disease symptoms associated with Borrelia,contracted through tick bites. Unfortunately, most care providers do not haveknowledgeable LLMDs (Lyme Literate Doctors) on staff who recognize the complexity,severity, and difficulty that encompasses Lyme disease treatment. To elicit a betterunderstanding, the following are among the most common infections that can play a rolein Lyme disease. They are all potential contributors to what Envita Medical Centerslabels Lyme disease complex – a confluence of infections that may simultaneouslyinclude bacterial, viral, parasitic, and fungal co-infections that all necessitate specificLyme disease treatment and protocol customization to aid patients in the long term. 1. Borrelia (B. burgdorferi) – The most recognized infection in Lyme disease which is often deemed to be the tick-borne variety. While it is a major contributor, borrelia alone makes up but one of the numerous infections that stimulate Lyme disease and ostensibly make treatment so difficult. 2. Bartonella – Bartonellahenselae is the causative agent of the notorious cat- scratch fever, endocarditis, and countless other serious diseases known to humans. These bacteria comprise one of Lyme disease complex’s most irksome 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 transport the bacteria in Peru’s Andes Mountains, Colombia, and Ecuador while human body lice carriers are distributed 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 every individual on our planet at some juncture in their lifetime. It is indeed possible for EBV to lie dormant in the body throughout one’s life span. Typically, the disease is transmitted via saliva and requires 30-45 days to present with symptoms – if it eventually does at all. During this cycle of time, the host is most likely to spread EBV to others. However, when these infections continue to manifest as seen in chronic fatigue patients it becomes essential to evaluate/test for chronic Lyme disease complex and its co-infections and immunity. Lyme disease treatment becomes a requirement as multiple infections can often awaken dormant insidious infections such as Epstein-Barr. 4. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) - Approximately 80 percent of adults in these United States are infected with cytomegalovirus (CMV). It is considered a member of the herpes family and shares the common trait of remaining alive, yet dormant, in the human body for the ongoing life span of its human host. Rarely does CMV
  3. 3. become active unless the immune system is compromised– as it can easily be (and most often is) with Lyme disease infections deteriorating the immune system.5. Babesiosis- Intraerythrocytic parasite Babesia microiti causes Babesiosis, an infection that resides inside red blood cells. It is transmitted by the identical tick that transmits B. burgdorferi, the causative agent of Lyme disease. Forty one percent of patients stricken with Babesia develop serious complications which may include 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, marginalized 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 presents 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. For your information, this virus is immune suppressive and also activates other viruses during the process. While HHV-6 can remain latent for long periods of time, it can reactivate and produce infection quickly. A comprehensive Lyme disease treatment must be introduced to combat HHV-6 and other Lyme disease complex infections.7. Ehrlichiosis - Ehrlichiosis is a serious Lyme disease co-infection disease caused by rickettsial-type (specific bacteria) organisms and presents in two specific forms; Human Monocytic Ehrlichiosis (HME) and Human Granulocytic Ehrlichiosis (HGE). In the majority of 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. Definitively, however, Lyme disease patients are relegated to the dangerous “immunocompromised” category. That is why it is incumbent upon 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 that infect humans and can trigger pneumonia. They are a type of Chlamydia . Chlamydophila pneumoniae has a
  4. 4. complex life cycle and must infect another cell in order to reproduce itself. The disease generally begins as a respiratory infection, appearing more or less unnoticed in the body and spreads to infect other tissues such as nerves, brain, muscles, blood vessels and even cells defending the bodys own immune system, the macrophages. CP itself produces at least two toxic substances that initiate tissue destruction and inflammatory burden, as well as a chronic immune activation and invasion with a toxin load. CP survives in the cell much as a parasite taps energy in order to reproduce. Therapy, however, must be administered effectively until CP is destroyed in all three stages, thus voiding re- infection. It 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 evidenced 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 skewed, 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 weakened by the presence of chronic Lyme disease - the presence of Candida must be aggressively addressed in a comprehensive Lyme disease treatment.As comprehensive as the above maladies seem, it is equally important to point out thatonly 13% of infections that exist around the world have actually been identified. Amongthese are zoonotic infections (those emanating from animals) - making Lyme diseasetreatment among the most complex to approach.The Reality of Lyme Disease and Lyme Disease Treatments That Can ActuallyWorkIf Lyme disease is detected early, it can be treated rather well with a realistic course ofantibiotics. However, in a huge majority of cases, Lyme disease is not addressed byeither the patients or their physicians at its onset - if they do at all. For patients whohave had Lyme disease for more than a year, significantly more aggressive Lymedisease treatment must be authorized.The standard prescription of antibiotics is categorically deemed insufficient whentreating Lyme disease complex or as a sole Lyme disease treatment. Antibiotics do nothelp the body to destroy the mycotoxins or BLP (bacteria lipoprotein neurotoxins)caused by Borrelia, nor are they effective in treating the various viral, fungal, andparasitic co-infections attendant to Lyme disease. These co-infections are existent insome random combination in virtually every Lyme disease patient and must be dealtwith in any worthy Lyme disease treatment.To be clear, is not uncommon to notice four or more combinations of infections inchronic Lyme disease patients. Often months, or perhaps even years of treatment are
  5. 5. incumbent to remove the stubborn Borrelia from the body – not to mention themultitudes of other attackers liberated by the presence of Lyme disease complex in thebody. Chronic Lyme disease treatment requires an organized/customized program thatincludes reestablishing immune function and status for patients. Simply administeringmedication will not be successful and can even complicate matters for the worse. With adegree of certainty, practitioners who attempt to treat patients using anti-malaria drugssuch as plaquenil, routinely fail as they do not address the immune system.Chronic Lyme Disease Awareness and Effective Lyme Disease TreatmentTreatment of Lyme disease must be targeted at more than just the infections.Diminishing inflammation, supporting the immune system, detoxification of BLP’s, andaddressing hormone deficiencies are crucial to a comprehensive chronic Lyme diseasetreatment plan. If patients are ingesting other medications or pain killers, a delicateapproach is needed to transition them to a superior quality of life. In fact, when patientindicate that they have Lyme disease, or Lyme disease doctors examine patients - it is acommonly recognized that they are dealing with a combination of infections, as well asan immune compromised state. While the infections present may vary from case tocase, the basic existing problem is Lyme disease complex, or "a combination ofinfections”.Envita’s Experience is the Difference for Lyme Disease Patients and Life-changing Lyme Disease TreatmentEnvita has worked in the field of Lyme disease research and Lyme disease treatmentfor nearly a decade. Our experiences have prompted more efficient, effective progressin Lyme disease treatment. At Envita, we address and examine all factors of Lymedisease, assuming that handling Lyme’s co-infections are just as critical as directtreatment of the primary disease. Understanding the concept of co-infections and body’shomeostasis imbalances is the reason why we name it Lyme disease complex and whyEnvita leads the all nations in effective Lyme disease treatment.To further complicate matters, many Lyme disease infections live within the red andwhite bloods cells making them very stealth and expectedly, extremely difficult to treat.They can deter the bodys immune defenses and reproduce within the healthy cells.Envita takes advantage of special shuttling agents to effectively address and treat thesepervasive infections.Lyme Disease Treatment and Complications of Lyme DiseaseThere has been much dialogue about Bioflim communities that protect the infectionsfrom the penetration of medications. In many cases these Biofilm communities must bestripped and minimized through proper treatment and lifestyle changes.Another scenario to consider, as it pertains to Lyme disease treatment, is self-synergistic replication. In this situation, many infections can communicate with andstimulate the replication of other viruses already present in the body. All the while, thepatient must contend with numerous symptoms that may present as digestion problems,
  6. 6. cognitive difficulties, chronic pain, sleep deprivation, and hormonal imbalances - just tomention a few.Does Chronic Lyme Disease Exist and is Lyme Disease Treatment NecessaryLyme disease does undeniably exist. And even though many researchers will imply thatthe patient really does not have Lyme disease in the classical laboratory form – patientsoften still suffer from a combination of the infections aforementioned . Presumably, theymust be treated simultaneously so as to provide effective and sustained relief forpatients.It is also vital to realize that many laboratory tests provide false negatives .The testsdecree a negative finding when the patient actually has an infection(s) present. Some ofthe most common reasons are immune systems that are too compromised to mount aproper antigen test. However, if an immune system challenge is conducted, one maynotice a positive test result for these patients. Additionally, many of these infections dolive intra-cellularly and as a return with false negative results.At Envita, we have developed a bold combination of tests to identify specificimmunological factors and a comprehensive clinical overview to help patients seek andtreat all the components of the Lyme Disease complex.Envita’s Approach to Tackling Lyme Disease and Identifying the Ideal LymeDisease Treatment for Each PatientBecause Lyme disease is so complex, extensive and comprehensive Lyme diseasetreatment is required.. At Envita, Lyme disease treatments are not limited to antibiotics,rather administered in conjunction with aggressive natural therapies from locations allover the world.As part of our Disease Solutions Program®, we take an integrative approach to Lymedisease treatment, utilizing anti-viral, anti-parasitic, and anti-fungal approaches -depending on the co-infections and symptoms present in each patient. By addressing allLyme disease complex factors, we achieve superior results with our incomparable Lymedisease treatments.We implement innovative treatments to help patients achieve an intensive-grasp of theirdisease, thereby providing them with the ability to conquer.
