|Healing Lyme Disease Coinfections|
A guide to the natural treatment of two of the most common and damaging coinfections of Lyme disease—Bartonella and Mycoplasma.
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.
