Wellness Rx Report: Lyme Disease

May 26, 2021

Lyme disease is an illness caused by a bacteria called Borrelia burgdoreri. It is spread to humans and animals by a certain type of “hard-bodied” tick that is carrying the bacterium (gram-negative spirochete bacteria). This Lyme bacteria can duplicate themselves rapidly and can hide from the body’s immune system by mimicking healthy cells. Lyme bacteria can also change forms to elude the immune system or antibiotics. When it is in “cyst” form it becomes very difficult to kill. According to the International Lyme and Associated Disease Society (ILADS), there are 5 subspecies of Borrelia burgodoreri, over 100 strains in the United States and 300 strains worldwide.
