    Book Description

    Release date: May 5, 2013 | Series: No
    A guide to the natural treatment of two of the most common and damaging coinfections of Lyme disease--Bartonella and Mycoplasma
    • Reveals how these conditions often go undiagnosed, complicate Lyme treatment, and cause a host of symptoms--from arthritis to severe brain dysfunction
    • Outlines natural treatments for both infections, with herbs and supplements for specific symptoms and to combat overreactions of the immune system
    • Reviews the latest scientific research on Bartonella and Mycoplasma coinfections and how treatment with antibiotics is often ineffective
    Each year Harvard researchers estimate there are nearly 250,000 new Lyme disease infections--only 10 percent of which will be accurately diagnosed. One of the largest factors in misdiagnosis of Lyme is the presence of other tick-borne infections, which mask or aggravate the symptoms of Lyme disease as well as complicate treatment. Two of the most common and damaging Lyme coinfections are Bartonella and Mycoplasma. Nearly 35 million people in the United States are asymptomatically infected with each of these pathogens, and at least 10 percent will become symptomatic every year--with symptoms ranging from arthritis to severe brain dysfunction.
    Distilling hundreds of peer-reviewed journal articles on the latest scientific research on Bartonella, Mycoplasma, and Lyme disease, Stephen Buhner examines the complex synergy between these infections and reveals how all three can go undiagnosed or resurface after antibiotic treatment. He explains how these coinfections create cytokine cascades in the body--essentially sending the immune system into an overblown, uncontrolled response in much the same way that rheumatoid arthritis or cancer can. Detailing effective natural holistic methods centered on herbs and supplements, such as the systemic antibacterial herb Sida acuta, which acts to protect blood cells from invading organisms, he reveals how to treat specific symptoms, interrupt the cytokine cascades, and bring the immune system back into balance as well as complement ongoing Lyme disease treatments.

    kolowesi...

    I have similar co-infections to yours and still need treatment for them. For me it has been overwhelming to figure out who to go to since LLMD's don't advertise.

    There are three LLMD's within an hour of where I live but most don't take insurance. At least my state passed laws so physicians treating Lyme cannot be prosecuted for not abiding by IDSA guidelines.

    Unfortunately, the insurance companies have still been denying payment for treatments so patients have born the burden of horrific costs.

    I just read of a case where in one family, 4 of 5 children tested positive for Lyme yet the insurance company denied treatment of IV antibiotics for one daughter (pg 23 of state report "Lyme Disease in Massaaschusetts" published February 28th 2013).

    The politics of chronic disease is truly scary.

    KDM thinks I have Borreliosis. I had a p41 reaction on the test (flagella) and immune results suggest it as well as some symptoms.

    the stuff about TMJ is interesting. We have a thread on TMJ here somewhere...At the moment I have some pain in teeth and last week saw the dentist and he says there is no sign of infection there. He isn't sure what to make of it. I swear it is worse when I eat sugary things, and that perhaps makes sense with Borrelia...

    Also my jaw clicks sometimes, and is often excrusiatingly painful in the morning when I first chew something. Pain last a few seconds, then gone for the day usually. Its right on the TMJ joint.
