The Lyme disease bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi, is spread through the bite of infected ticks. This can come from deer ticks, sheep ticks, hedgehogs and many small mammals.
Ticks can attach to any part of the human body but are often found in hard-to-see areas such as the groin, armpits, and scalp. In most cases, the tick must be attached for 36-48 hours or more before the Lyme disease bacterium can be transmitted.
Most humans are infected through the bites of immature ticks called nymphs. Nymphs are tiny (less than 2 mm) and difficult to see; they feed during the spring and summer months. Adult ticks can also transmit Lyme disease bacteria, but they are much larger and may be more likely to be discovered and removed before they have had time to transmit the bacteria. Adult Ixodes ticks are most active during the cooler months of the year.
A clinical case of Lyme disease occurs when a person is infected by a tick bite. Symptoms follow after an incubation period that may last between two days and 3 1/2 months. However, on some occasions, the bacteria do not cause disease straight away. The bacteria can enter a phase in which they do not cause symptoms but are still present. They may still have the potential to cause active disease at a later stage.
The first symptom is usually a rash, which may look like a bull’s eye. As the infection spreads, you may have
- A fever
- A headache
- Muscle and joint aches
- A stiff neck
After treatment, some patients may still have muscle or joint aches and nervous system symptoms. This is called post-Lyme disease syndrome (PLDS). Long-term antibiotics have not been shown to help with PLDS.
But why has the incidence of Lyme disease increased so dramatically in recent years? Records from the Natural History Museum show it has been in existence for literally thousands of years. We generally eat better than our forefathers from a few hundred years ago so why would our immune systems not cope with this bacteria?
We can only postulate causes but the fact is that additives, pollutants and artificial ingredients have taken their toll on the current generation in society. Other factors have taken their toll on the liver, such as alcohol, pharmaceuticals and radiation. But the biggest step change has been the prevalence of sugar in the modern diet, both openly and disguised. All these factors play a role in lowering resistence to the disease.
Utilizing Rife technology, in particular the BCX Ultra machine with a proven track record in this field, will generally eliminate the condition but what preventative steps can be taken? An increase in Vitamin C uptake will support the immune system; Pine bark extracts like Pycnogenol, are also effective; Curcumin/Turmeric also has efficacy in fighting foreign bodies and finally Siberian Ginseng gives a prolonged boost to the immune system.
Utilising the BCX Ultra for the slightest hint of an unwanted condition, and taking good nutritional supplements should vastly lower susceptibility to Lyme Disease.
