How Lyme Disease Affects Your Qualilty of Life
Tuesday, January 12, 2021
Lyme disease is a condition that is carried by infected black-legged deer ticks. These ticks are usually found in wooded areas with tall grass. The intended target of ticks is usually deer and other woodland animals, but outdoor enthusiasts, hunters, and unsuspecting adventurers are more and more frequently becoming infected with Lyme disease. The number of cases is constantly rising and the CDC fears that the numbers are dramatically underreported, estimating that around 300,000 cases occur every year.
At Stemaid Institute, we have years of experience in treating conditions with pluripotent stem cells. Lyme disease is one of many conditions that we treat. We understand how disabling Lyme disease can be and as such, our goal is to help our patients restore their good health and recover their quality of life!
Symptoms of Lyme Disease
If you catch the tick before it burrows into your skin, it’s possible to prevent Lyme disease from taking hold. If the tick has broken the skin, you will notice a ‘bulls-eye’ pattern, a large red circle around the bite with a larger circle around the general area. At this point, you will likely need to undergo a round of antibiotics to combat the primary infection, series of secondary infections, and prevent the condition from setting-in long term.
Below is a list of conditions associated with Lyme disease as well as the stages at which they occur:
Short Term Symptoms (3 – 30 Days)
- Fever & chills
- Muscle and joint aches
- Swollen lymph nodes indicating an immune response
- Intense headaches
- Chronic fatigue
- Erythema migrans (EM) rash:
- Occurs in approximately 70 to 80 percent of infected persons
- May feel warm to the touch but is rarely itchy or painful
- Sometimes clears as it enlarges, resulting in a target or “bulls-eye” appearance
- May appear on any area of the body
Long Term Symptoms (+30 days)
- Continued headaches and neck stiffness
- Appearance of additional EM rashes on other areas of the body
- Heart palpitations or an irregular heartbeat
- Episodic dizziness
- Inflammation of the brain and spinal cord
- Nerve pain (numb extremities)
- Facial palsy (loss of function in one half of the face)
- Arthritic pain, especially in the knees and other large joints.
- Full body musculoskeletal aches and pains
- As you can see, this is a serious condition that has the potential to dramatically influence your quality of life. Some patients experience fatigue to such a dramatic effect that they are essentially bedridden for months.
- Add to that the pain, headaches, and cognitive impairment and it can be a life-altering experience. Fortunately, there are treatment options that can help you fight this condition and recover your quality of life.
Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome
Some patients that overcome the initial disease are faced with post-treatment symptoms that cannot be treated by antibiotics. One of the most likely causes is a chronic infection due to either cystic encapsulation of the initial pathogen or its growth in the form of biofilms which cannot be treated with antibiotics. Thus continued antibiotic therapy is not only ineffective but can be harmful long term.
Patients will also experience long-term physiological changes and chronic accumulation of toxins due to a compromised immune system and detoxification mechanisms, and the regular use of antibiotics, antidepressants, and other drugs. To add to that, they will notice a slow degradation of the body functions leading to arthritis, heart problems, and neurological problems affecting the brain and the nervous system. Patients can experience continued symptoms of pain, fatigue, or cognitive impairment that lasts for more than 6 months, sometimes years.
Treating Lyme with Pluripotent Stem Cells
At Stemaid we provide a 4 week Lyme Disease treatment program that consists of the following:
24 Stem Cell IVs
24 Day Anti-Bacterial Treatment
10 Day Detox & Vitamin/Peptide IVs
4 Ozone EBOO Therapy Sessions
Patients that undertake pluripotent stem cell therapy will notice benefits and improvements in three areas. First and foremost is an immediate boost in their immune function, which is critical for combatting such a resilient condition. Second, their natural repair mechanisms resume, restoring the proper function of damaged organs and reinvigorating overall health. Lastly, patients will notice remarkable improvements in their neurological function after treatment.
