I agree w/ Traveler - one must read and come to one's own conclusions. There are case reports of transmission through the birth canal from mother to fetus, or through breastmilk. There are no official studies regarding sexual transmission that I know of, but given the relation between Lyme and Syphillis, I wouldn't be surprised if it was possible in some specific/rare cases (such as if a person was immune-compromised).
HBOT (hyperbaric oxygen therapy) for Lyme: I've heard mixed results like everything else used to treat Lyme...some swear by it. However, I've also heard that if one has mercury toxicity that the HBOT is not a good idea.....
