Why are Tick Borne Illnesses so Difficult to Treat?
Lyme disease was initially discovered about 30 years ago in Lyme, Connecticut. Since it’s discovery, Lyme disease has become the most undiagnosed and untreated epidemic in the 21st century. Tick borne illnesses have been very difficult for traditional and conventional medicine to treat. Lyme disease has been discovered in other insects such as mosquitos, blood transfusions, and even gestationally (transmitted from mother to child). Lyme disease is a bacterial infection caused by the spirochete (Borrelia burgdorferi) which can also mimic and has been misdiagnosed as virtually any disease including but not limited to CFS, Fibromyalgia, MS, depression, bipolar disorder, Alzheimer’s, and ALS. Lyme disease is a serious condition affecting multiple areas of the body with symptoms appearing within 1-2 weeks after being bitten.
The bite often begins with a telltale red rash, or a “bulls-eye” ring, usually, although not exclusively surrounding the site of the bite. Since the infection varies and can manifest in over 100 different symptoms with no two people being the same, Lyme Disease is usually not even considered by most physicians. Even if testing is performed, standard testing misses over 90% of the cases of Chronic Lyme Disease. This is because the standard methods of testing were designed to test for Acute Lyme Disease and not Chronic Lyme.
The standard testing method is an immunoassay test of IgG and IgM antibodies followed by Western blot for confirmation. In addition, most doctors use the CDC (Center for Disease Control) criteria to define/identify a positive test. The problem with this is that the the CDC criteria was never meant for diagnosis, it was meant for epidemiological surveillance (tracking).
