Take him back to lyme doctor and what do you know, lyme positive. However, dr. is saying it is a new infection. This dr is very nice but not totally up to date on lyme. He did use good lyme lab and test for coinfections (which were negative) but he is saying since only IGM is positive and not IGG that it is a new infection.
Go with your own intuition, I'd say most likely the bacteria stayed dormant, was somewhat in control by the immune system for a few years, then all you need to do is pick up a minor virus in the winter to allow the bacteria to surface again.
Professional fisherman Babe Winkelman recently said he's had lyme 3 times. Honestly, I just think a lot of people are relapsing when they say they've had Lyme multiple times./www.msn.com/en-us/sports/medical/babe-winkelman-warns-of-the-dangers-of-lyme-disease/vi-BBHulfv?ocid=sf
There's a misconception about
this disease that once your body deals with lyme for a few years your body becomes immune to that strain. That couldn't be further from the truth considering what we know now about
the bacteria: biofilms, round body forms, L forms, persister cells, and coinfections./www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/04/140402110029.htm
- Journal Reference from CDC & Gary Wormser
- this is WRONG!!!
Listen to what LLMD Dr. Jay Nielsen has to say about
biofilms and relapsing, he trained with Dr. Jemsek./youtu.be/GdjWIiTeE9M
Even the guy from Reluctant Preppers mentioned how he treated with a month of antibiotics when he was first infected, basically put the borrelia infection in remission, then years later, he slowly came down with relapsing symptoms. The symptoms come on slow one by one because borrelia has a slower life cycle and goes undetected by your immune system, so most likely it goes unnoticed by the host/carrier.
I think the whole medical system even the lyme literate physicians are underestimating the resilience of biofilms and persister cells.
I even think Dr. Jay Nielsen underestimates this bacteria thinking nattokinase works well on biofilms, I'm sure it works somewhat, but not as effective as most LLMDs believe. The only two that worked well for me were stevia and xylitol, nattokinase did nothing for me. You can look up this enzyme on this forum and others, not a lot of people have had success with it.
Dr. Horrowitz is having a lot of success with stevia and strong persister cell antibiotics dapsone and pyrazinamide.
And chances are, this time around in treatment, the lyme infection you'll be treating will be much more resilient to the antibiotics you'll be using, Dr. Jay Nielsen mentioned this in the video... The morons at the CDC have the immunity thing backwards, chances are the borrelia bacteria is becoming immune to your antibiotics, not your body becoming immune to the particular borrelia strain.
Also, there's so many people that throw around the remission and cure word losely. Look, if you haven't made it to a full year without antibiotics or antibacterial herbs, you haven't reached remission.
I was off antibiotics for 7 months, thought I was doing well, then the infection came back in full force. The medical system has no clue what they're dealing with. Make sure your LLMD is following the top lyme literate physicians from ILADS or you'll get nowhere...
Look at the Doctors and Universities who's leading in the science surrounding Lyme Disease and disregard all the propaganda!
Leaders - ILADs, John Hopkins Hospital, Dr. Horrowitz, Dr. Jemsek, Dr. Burrascano, Dr. Sapi, Dr. Embers, Dr. Macdonald.... Listen to what these Doctors are saying, disregard the disinformation, misinformation and garbage... there's a lot of it!!!
