Lyme disease is normally considered to be a Borrielia infection but among the co-infections is Bartonella. Borrielia is much easier to treat without the presence of Bart. Bart is the real culprit and what is not known is that Bart cause angiogenic tumors in your blood vessels which the bacteria use to hide from treatment. Not very many LLMD's are successful at treating Bart.

"Lizards fight Lyme Disease"
In the current issue of California Game and Fish magazine (vol 2014 No 2 page 12) there is an article about how the common Western Fence Lizard (Blue-belly) cleans the Lyme bacteria out of ticks.

Back in 1995, I was bit by a tick in the Santa Cruz area, and started having symptoms right away. When I sought medical help, the doctor told me there was no Lyme Disease in California, and I probably just had the flu, and to go rest it off. I was young at the time, without insurance, and the internet wasn't a big help back then...I believed what he told me. I got lost in the system for a long time. I went undiagnosed for 16 years, until finally my symptoms were debilitating, and I did enough research to figure it out myself. I asked my naturopath to be tested. It came back "negative", but most of the results were actually IND (indeterminate). I was no longer producing antibodies, and any regular doctor would pass it off again as some mysterious ailment according to the test results. I took myself and the test results to a LLMD, and finally got diagnosed. This was 2.5 years ago...I'm still in treatment, and sick. Stable, I think, but still sick. This is a SERIOUS disease, and can kill you if left untreated. PLEASE be careful out there. PLEASE see a specialist if you've been bit. Getting treatment right away could save your life.
