“Clinically, we have seen in these diseases a strong correlation to infections including viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections, along with tick-borne infections like chronic Lyme disease complex….After a decade of experience in this area of medicine, we have used detailed testing to show that over 80% of the patients experiencing these symptoms also have infections.” -Envita Medical Center envita

Lyme Disease can mimic over 300 different autoimmune diseases; overlapping symptoms of many autoimmune disease allow patients to be sent home with a band-aid approach to treatment, such as antidepressants or pain medications, unfortunately not treating the underlying cause. Due to how similar symptoms can be to other autoimmune diseases, the severity of Lyme Disease is still not fully recognized by the conventional world. When it comes to testing for Lyme Disease, the only true sign of Lyme is the physical appearance of a bulls eye rash, another problem in diagnosing however, about 50% of Lyme Disease patients do not exhibit the rash, and “52% of patients with chronic disease are negative by ELISA but positive by Western blot”.
