More Diseases Acquired From Ticks And Possibly Other Insects

Lyme disease is not the only infection a person can acquire when being bitten by a tick. Some of the other infections are mycoplasma, Erlichiosis, Babesiosis, Bartonella, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and there are others. One should know the symptoms of these diseases because one tickbite could transmit one or all of these diseases. The testing is not very accurate so many of the infections are not diagnosed properly. Treatment for some of these diseases use specific antibiotics or antimalarial drugs, which is another reason one needs to become familiar with the symptoms.

In New England the media only speaks of Lyme disease . I rarely if ever hear warnings of these other tickborne co-infections. The ticks have become infected with a cocktail of many different organisms. Many times, in certain areas, bartonella and babesia are found more often in the ticks than the Lyme disease spirochete. This can be a biowarfare tactic.....but not necessarily so. When an insect vector harbors several different diseases and or toxins obtained from specific germs , such as brucellosis, are inserted into other microbes....this makes diagnosis and treatment extremely difficult.

In order to withstand infections with these organisms, we need to eat the right foods, be aware of natural antibiotics and antimalarials (artemesinin), and follow other healthy lifestyle habits. Eat fermented foods and make sure your digestive juices are working properly. This can help prevent infections from injested parasites or other organisms. Time for prayer and inspiration each also essential.

There is a list of symptoms at the link below that you may want to be aware of.
