A guide to the natural treatment of two of the most common and damaging coinfections of Lyme disease Bartonella and Mycoplasma Reveals how these conditions often go undiagnosed complicate Lyme treatment and cause a host of symptoms from arthritis to severe brain dysfunction Outlines natural treatments for both infections with herbs and supplements for specific symptoms and to combat overreactions of the immune system Reviews the latest scientific research on Bartonella and Mycoplasma coinfections and how treatment with antibiotics is often ineffective 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 Distilling hundreds of peer reviewed journal articles on the latest scientific research on Bartonella Mycoplasma and Lyme disease Stephen Buhner examines the complex synergy between these infections and reveals how all three can go undiagnosed or resurface after antibiotic treatment He explains how these coinfections create cytokine cascades in the body essentially sending the immune system into an overblown uncontrolled response in much the same way that rheumatoid arthritis or cancer can Detailing effective natural holistic methods centered on herbs and supplements such as the systemic antibacterial herb Sida acuta which acts to protect blood cells from invading organisms he reveals how to treat specific symptoms interrupt the cytokine cascades and bring the immune system back into balance as well as complement ongoing Lyme disease treatments
