Hi everyone, I hope this finds you all in good health and vitality.
Today’s health Bunker article will cover the topics of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and their links to other illnesses like Lyme Disease. If you watched the mainstream BBC news recently, you may have seen that the government released a story in October last year saying;
“Most people who now think they may have had Lyme disease, in fact have a syndrome that is more in keeping with chronic fatigue syndrome.” said Dr. Sarah Logan, from London’s Hospital for Tropical Diseases.
This is the type of rhetoric that makes me realize that governments, here in the UK, the United States and the rest of the world, along with medical establishments, and pharmaceutical companies have either no idea what they are talking about or there is another agenda. Or both.
Sufferers of these illnesses have at some time of another been told more than once by a ‘medical professional’ or by so-called ‘friends’ these magic phrases;
‘Could it all be in your head’? Or ‘It’s only a tick bite, antibiotics clear it up straight away’.
Both translate to mean, we’re all making it up!
If you have ME or Chronic Fatigue as well as a host of other health complaints, in my opinion, have a Lyme test. Please keep in mind that people with Lyme Disease or symptoms of Lyme Disease could still show a ‘false negative’ result. Especially with an NHS blood test, which is at best 50% accurate. But you will never have a ‘False Positive’.
The name Lyme Disease is a little misleading, so, we will give a brief explanation, we will also list the symptoms of ME and CFS. Health Bunker will show some ‘mainstream’ research as to where these syndromes may have sprung from.
- What is Lyme Disease?
- What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) & Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME)?
ME/CFS is not Lyme, nor am I saying everyone with ME/CFS has Lyme Disease. But ME/CFS is a symptom of the body’s deteriorating energy resources, because of the constant fight with diseases like Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb) and other multiple infections.
