Multiple imbalances: Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria have the most complex genome of any bacteria & create multiple imbalances.They can infect any organ & prevent that organ from functioning properly & elicit an inflammatory response. They suppress immune function, often opening the door for other infections, produce microbial toxins, create hormonal imbalances etc. See http://ldnr.Us/lyme_disease_pathophysiology.Html. ...Read more

Is the Lyme spirochete (borrelia) the only infectious cause of raynaud's? If not, what are some other infections that cause this?

Is the Lyme spirochete (borrelia) the only infectious cause of raynaud's?  If not, what are some other infections that cause this?

Not likely: Raynaud's is either primary or secondary.Primary raynaud's means there is no known reason for it (idiopathic)and that it is not part of a more severe autoimmune disease such as lupus or scleroderma.Likely there's a genetic link since this can run in families. Secondary raynaud's is a more severe form that is part of an autoimmune disease.It's not well documented that any infections cause raynaud's. ...Read more

Can "Shwartzman phenomenon" be caused by bacterial endotoxins from borrelia burgdorferi? Do people with Lyme ever get blood clots from this?

Can "Shwartzman phenomenon" be caused by bacterial endotoxins from borrelia burgdorferi?  Do people with Lyme ever get blood clots from this?

Lyme a spirochete: The Shwartzman phenomenon is reaction following the second exposure to a bacterial endotoxin, with tissue bleeding, necrosis and disseminated intravascular coagulation. Lyme disease is caused by B. burgdorferi, a spirochete, or zoonosis. Treatment can cause a Herxheimer reaction with fever, myalgia and arthralgia as toxins are released from the dead spirochetes. ...Read more

Whats borrelia bugdorferi?

Whats borrelia bugdorferi?

Bacteria causes Lyme: Borrelia burgdorferi is the bacteria that is the causative agent of lyme disease. It has the most complex genome of any bacteria known to man, which contributes to its ability to infect any organ and to mask itself from the immune system and develop resistance to antibiotics. It is most commonly transmitted by ticks but may be transmitted by other biting/stinging insects, sexually & congenitally. ...Read more
