Just listened to a webinar, the participants included Dr Ne-il. N-athan, 2 research facts came out of this, new to me- Lyme can be transferred vertically - ie from mother to child, the way to prevent this is by keeping the mother on low dose a/biotics for the pregnancy. New research has shown that Lyme can be transmitted sexually. The Lyme spirochetes are found in all bodily fluids. The good news is they are finding new treatments all the time, so if one doesn't suit a patient then there are other options.
