Healing Lyme Disease Co-infections

30 September 2019

A lot of people look at myself and Nic and to be honest, can’t believe we have Lyme disease. Even practitioners who have experience treating lyme. I’m sure, this leads some people to think we’re making it up or Lyme disease isn’t too bad after all.

Some people innocently ask, have you gotten rid of Lyme disease now? Not realising it’s not quite that simple. What I suppose makes us different from the majority of sufferers is; we decided to do this alone. We’ve built a clinic with the sole purpose to treat our illness. We live to heal.

Yes, we’ve taken advice and paid for help but we have not just nodded our heads and done what anyone has told us like sheep verbatim. We’ve researched and experimented on ourselves. Testing diets and food, trying supplements and treatments.

We have read books about Lyme disease Stephen Buhner wrote, explaining natural holistic methods centred on herbs. Watched docu-series showcasing the latest scientific research into the subject. But what all these people have in common are; Most of them do not have Lyme Disease and they specialise in one or a few things to try to get the system back into balance.

From all this info we have devised programs for ourselves that help treats specific symptoms, thus interrupting the flow of a constantly changing Lyme landscape. This includes herbs and supplements, different saunas, Ozone therapies, laser treatments, photobiomodulation therapy, oxygen treatments, high dose IV nutrients, rife frequencies, massage, IonCleanse, breathing techniques, hypnosis and meditation. We perform, parasite cleanses and heavy metal detox.

Our diet is under constant review, we eat clean, all cooked food no processed rubbish, ever. Speaking for myself, anyone who knew me 10 years ago would not understand who I am today. 

In our previous 3 Lyme articles; Lyme Disease Symptoms. Is Lyme Disease Man-Made? What is Lyme Disease and why is it Spreading? Today we will cover Lyme Disease Co-Infections Bartonella is only one of them, but that’s where we will start.


Lyme Disease Co-Infections – Bartonella

In 1909 Dr Alberto Barton found the bacteria that was named after him Bartonella bacilliformis. It is spread by mites, fleas, lice or sand flies and is classed as a vector disease. Domestic animals also carry bacteria like cats and dogs, in fact, one symptom is called ‘cat scratch disease’.

There is some argument about Bartonella being a co-infection or not. Lyme Disease (Borrelia burgdorferi) is transmitted by ticks and Bartonella is a spread from a different type of insect.

However, if you read other research they tend to say it is transmitted by ticks because the tick carries its own infections which are then passed onto the victim.

In my experience, this is totally irrelevant. If you are diagnosed with Lyme, accept that you will have some or all of the co-infections, simple. Lyme plays havoc and brings down the immune system. Co-infections also play havoc with your immune system.

This weakened immune functionality then allows infections that wouldn’t normally cause problems, now become bigger issues.


Diseases associated with Bartonella

Cat Scratch Disease, Trench Fever, Carrion’s Disease.

Bartonella Symptoms; relapsing fever, poor appetite, streaked rash, swollen glands around head neck and arms.

Bartonella appears in about 28% of Lyme patients.


Babesia Parasite

Babesia is a tiny Malaria type parasite transmitted by ticks. Believed to be the most common piroplasm infecting humans. Scientists have identified over 20 piroplasms carried by ticks. Roughly 32% of all Lyme sufferers are infected with Babesia.

Babesia Symptoms:

Symptoms are very similar to Lyme disease.

High fever, fatigue, headaches, drenching sweats, muscle pain, hip pain, shortness of breath, chest pain, low blood pressure, liver problems, hemolytic anaemia (red blood cells from invading parasite breakdown), and kidney failure.


Ehrlichia Bacteria

Human Monocytic Ehrlichiosis (HME) affects about 15% of Lyme victims.  Ehrlichia is an infectious disease caused by bacteria from an infected tick. It belongs to a group of infections in the Ehrlichia family. First Diagnosed in humans in 1986, but it has long been known to infect animals, like dogs for instance.

Ehrlichia Symptoms

Fever, Chills, headaches, fatigue, rashes, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, weight loss, coughing, diarrhea, sore throat, abdominal pain. Rare Cases; decreased white blood cells, thrombocytopenia, hepatic transaminases, hepatitis.

Mycoplasma is a bacterium that is naturally resistant to antibiotics. Antibiotics target cell walls mycoplasmas have no cell walls. They can survive as parasitic (living host) or saprotrophic (dead host).

This infection generally plays a role in 15% of all Lyme cases.

There around 200 Mycoplasma infections, here are the ones to watch out for; Mycoplasma Pnuemoniae, Mycoplasma Genitalium, Mycoplasma Hominis, Ureaplasma Urealyticum and Ureaplasma Parvum.

Symptoms of Mycoplasma

General; Sore throat, cough, fever, fatigue and headache.

Women; pain during sex, bleeding from the vagina, discharge.

Men; burning during urination, Urethritis, Discharge from the penis.


Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF)

RSMF is a bacterial infection called Rickettsia rickettsii and is transmitted by ticks. RMSF can cause a wide variety of chronic illnesses from arthritis to severe brain dysfunction.

RMSF affects about 6% of Lyme patients.

Symptoms of RMSF

General; High fever, chills, severe headache, muscle pain/aches, nausea, vomiting, confusion, neurological changes, malaise, myalgia, edema, respiratory compromise,

Rare or late-stage; Amputations, multi-organ damage (CNS, renal failure), death.


Anaplasmosis is caused by Anaplasma phagocytophilum primarily spread by Blacklegged Ticks.

Symptoms of Anaplasmosis

Early signs; fever, chills, severe headache, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite.

Late-stage; Respiratory failure, bleeding problems, organ failure, death.

Interestingly if you have read our previous article; ‘Is Lyme Disease Man Made’, you will know Lyme is actually a town in the United States. Lyme is located just off the coast of  Plum Island Animal Disease Center.

The first Babasia infection was not far away, in fact, it was about 240 miles away in New England. This was in 1969 a few years before the first Lyme disease cases were reported. 

Human Monocytic Ehrlichiosis (HME)  was also discovered on the West Coast of the United States, not much of an escaped migrating birds flight away from the research centre on Plum island either.

Must be all a total coincidence. Not!

Co-infections are not the end of a Lyme patient’s suffering. These infections together cause other damage allowing other infections to take hold. Also, autoimmune diseases like allergies, lupus, that cause inflammation all over the body. Genetic mutations are also a factor opening the gates to even more suffering. I will cover these in another article.

After I wrote, Is Lyme Disease Man-Made, there were new developments in the USA. A request was made for information in Congress on the secret experiments on Plum Island and other places.

My view is that Lyme and other infections were natural occurring diseases, but were militarized during WW2 first by the Nazis. Then after WW2 Operation Paperclip brought these scientists to continue their work in the U.S. and the UK. 

Lyme and Co are perfect Bio Warfare weapons, hard to detect, cause untold damage on humans, no known cure, misdiagnosed by a blind medical establishment. I could go on and on. 

We had at least 75% of all those symptoms mentioned above. The good news is that through our protocols both learned and developed, we have in about 2-3 years more than halved all these symptoms. Some disappearing not to return some are being slowly ‘dampened down’.

Just writing this reminds me of what we went through to get here, and how much we have achieved along the way. 

If you have Lyme and Co, or any other debilitating disease we wish you good health and a speedy recovery. Please feel free to contact us.

A good read is Stephen Harrod Buhner’s books.

Eat Well. Be Well.
