What is Lyme Disease?
Lyme disease is an infection caused by a spirochete (say “SPY-ROH-KEET”) that humans can get from the bite of an infected deer tick. The spirochete’s scientific name is Borrelia burgdorferi. Lyme disease is called “The Great Imitator” because its symptoms mimic many other diseases. It can affect any organ of the body, including the brain and nervous system, muscles and joints, and the heart.
People usually get Lyme disease from ticks infected with Lyme spirochetes. Most human cases are caused by the nymphal, or immature, form of the tick. Nymphs are about the size of a poppy seed. Because their bite is painless, many people do not realize they have been bitten.
Ticks are tiny crawling bugs in the spider family that feed by sucking blood from animals. If the animal is carrying Lyme disease spirochetes, the tick sucks them up as it feeds and they multiply in the tick’s gut. The tick may then transfer them into the next animal it feeds on.
Where Do Ticks Live?
Tick density is linked to local micro-climate, flora, and fauna and can vary dramatically from one spot to another even within a single yard. Density and infection rates also vary from year to year in a single location.
Ticks prefer humid environments. Adult ticks climb up grasses and bushes on the edges of trails to wait for an animal to pass by. In hot, dry weather they are less active. Immature ticks are often found in leaf litter under oak trees. Nymphs may climb up onto downed logs.
Lyme disease is caused by the transmission of bacteria and viruses by the deer tick. Tick borne diseases are found throughout the world. The bacteria infection caused by the tick bite in the case of Lyme disease is a corkscrew type organism, called a spirochete. These are very hardy and reproduce very rapidly.
Lyme disease infection, called borreliosis, is a major health challenge. Is very tiny and is often hard to see and is frequently not seen before infection sets in. A classic sign of Lyme infection is the so-called target or bull’s-eye skin lesion. Many people who have Lyme disease never see a bull’s-eye lesion.
Lyme disease can cause a vast array of health problems. This depends on where the infection settles into the body. It can affect the brain, muscles and joints, the lungs, heart, the intestinal tract, and so on. The most common reactions are in the brain, muscles and joints and the heart. Most of the time it is treated early with antibiotics. Some people need long-term IV antibiotics to handle the infection. There is much controversy between conventional medicine and Lyme specialists on the best management of Lyme infection. Many people are treated shortly after a bull’s-eye rash and never seem to have a problem again. Many people show up with chronic severe ill-defined conditions, which upon testing often months to years later reveals the history of Lyme exposure.
Lyme disease often becomes chronic. I often tell my patients, that there are 4 aspects to Lyme disease. Number 1 is the actual active infection with the spirochete. The 2nd is the presence of the hidden, other morphological, hidden in the cell or intracellular forms of the organism. These tend to be chronic aspects of the infection. The 3rd form of reaction is an autoimmune reaction to the infection. This is also likely to be manifested and chronic long-term health conditions, not unlike rheumatoid arthritis or other connective tissue disorders. The 4th form of reaction is the actual damage caused by the infection. Acute Lyme infections, like any other infections, can settle in various tissues or organs of the body and create variable amounts damage, inflammation or scarring.
Obviously, Lyme disease needs to be treated with appropriate antibiotics, nutritional support, supplements and other therapeutic modalities, such as chiropractic and acupuncture. Some people need long-term IV antibiotics.
In the acute phase of the Lyme infection, antibiotics will usually suffice. In the chronic phases, it is very difficult to completely eradicate the infection or its consequences. This is where PEMFs come in.
Because PEMFs help with reducing inflammation, improving circulation, reducing pain and in general improving the value of other treatments, they should be part of any treatment program in any one with chronic Lyme related health problems.
A very common problem with Lyme disease is chronic pain. Many patients with Lyme disease become dependent on narcotics for their pain management. Unfortunately, narcotics can also be immunosuppressive and may in the long run be more harmful to the individual, besides the risk of addiction. PEMFs not only help with pain but also help to address the underlying causes of the pain in the body. This was spoken about very eloquently by Dr. Oz. PEMF therapy used at home on a daily basis is necessary to manage the pain of Lyme disease. Occasional treatments in a Dr.’s office will not do the job for somebody with chronic daily pain. At the very least, these occasional treatments will only provide temporary relief. The major value of PEMFs, is that they can be purchased and used in the home setting at one’s convenience, at one’s own schedule.
One of the most important aspects of the use of PEMFs for Lyme disease management is to be able to uncover or expose the forms of the Lyme organism that hideout in the cell, hidden from detection by the natural immune system. Antibiotics have not been found very useful for attacking these hidden forms. PEMFs help to open cell membrane channels, allowing nutrients better access to the inside of the cell and also helping the cell to eliminate waste better. By balancing the energy of the cell membrane, the cell will be healthier and more resistant to the hidden forms of the Lyme disease in the cell. Lyme disease in the brain, called neuro-borreliosis, is especially challenging to treat. Many medical treatments and nutritional approaches do not access the hidden Lyme organisms in brain tissue, due to not be able to get through the blood brain barrier. PEMFs have been shown to increase the diffuse-ability of the blood brain barrier, allowing better access of treatments, supplements, herbs and nutrients into the interior of the brain’s nerve cells.
Because of the longer-term damage done by Lyme infection, ongoing daily home use of PEMFs, likely for a person’s lifetime, may be necessary to achieve the best results. I honestly cannot tell you that PEMFs will cure your Lyme disease. I should also say that, when Lyme disease becomes chronic, there is very little hope of complete cure with any treatment, largely due to the autoimmune and chronic damage caused by the infection. In addition, the chronic use of multiple oral or intravenous antibiotics will clearly leave the body suffering from them as well. Using PEMFs along with antibiotics can make a big difference, in making them even more effective. I’ve had many patients who have reported that when they don’t use their magnetic systems daily, they feel worse.
Since Lyme disease can be such a stubborn and challenging condition to manage, PEMFs can be dramatically helpful for many people, and I routinely recommend them to my Lyme patients.
Lyme Disease is developed through the dissemination of bacteria and viruses from deer ticks. Deer ticks are found all over the world. The bacteria infection resembles a cork screw type organism known as Spirochete. These are sturdy and develop quickly. Due to their thin size they are hardly visible and are not seen before infection kicks in.
This disease is detrimental to the immune system and can viciously affect one’s health very quickly. The rate of attack depends on where the deer tick bacteria has infiltrated. It can affect the intestinal tracts, the heart, the lungs, the muscles and joints, and the brain, amongst other body organs. The most common areas to react are the heart, brain, muscles and joints.
People affected consume antibiotics, some go on lengthy IV treatments of antibiotics to pacify the infection. There is a high level of disagreement between traditional medication and Lyme experts on the best controlling process. Many patients are attacked by this disease differently. Some patients are treated right after a bulls-eye rash is evident and never have an issue again. Many others exhibit serious chronic conditions, for years and months afterwards.
Lyme disease has 4 aspects. The first one is the hard core infection. The second is the hidden presence, known as morphological infection hidden in the cells or intracellular forms. These are the chronic infections. The third is an autoimmune response, which may likely be manifested as a chronic long-term condition. The fourth does the real damage as it affects several tissues and organs of the body and generates shifting sizes of damage, scarring and infections.
Lyme disease must be treated with the correct antibiotics, nutritious support and supplements and other medicinal and modal qualities. In the acute stage, antibiotics will be enough to treat it but not for the long term.
How does PEMF Treatment Help?
PEMF treatment reduces inflammation, pain, refines the blood flow and increases its circulation. Many Lyme patients rely on narcotics to control the pain. Regrettably, narcotics are addicting and often can be immunosuppressive and hazardous to one’s health. PEMF is a safer and non-addictive treatment method.
The PEMF 4000 device does not only minimize pain but exposes the root cause of the pain within the body. Utilizing your PEMF 4000 device at home is essential to controlling the Lyme disease. Sporadic treatment will not suffice for somebody with the chronic pain. But with your PEMF 4000 machine at home you can use it at your convenience, as recommended by your doctor.
The PEMF Therapy opens up passages of the cell membrane, allowing nutrients ease of access into the cells helping the cells to get rid of waste quicker. PEMFs have been proven to improve the diffuse-ability of the blood brain barrier and increase the ease of access of substance, herbs, nutrients and therapies into the brain nerve cells.
If you are a patient of Lyme disease don’t hesitate any longer to get treatment. Antibiotic, narcotics and other conventional treatments have side effects. PEMF treatments don’t have any at all. Get your PEMF 4000 device today and treat yourself at home.
