In brief: Could say that
Nature is the source of most things.
Lyme disease is caused by a bacterium transmitted by ticks. Both bacteria and ticks are natural.

In brief: Unsure what u mean
Lyme disease is caused by a spirochaete (bacteria) called borellia burgdorfii and is transmitted to man by tick bites, predominantly by the deer tick.
This is part of nature.

In brief: Yes
Some ticks which exist in nature carry a bacterium which causes lyme disease inside them. When the tick bites a human, the bacterium (borelia burgdorfi) passes from the tick to the human.
This infection results in lyme disease.
