A University of Maryland (UMD) researcher has uncovered a mechanism by which the bacteria that causes Lyme disease persists in the body and fights your early, innate immune responses. Dr. Utpal Pal, Professor in Veterinary Medicine, has been studying the Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria throughout his twelve years with UMD, and his work has already produced the protein marker used to identify this bacterial infection in the body. Now, Dr. Pal has isolated a protein produced by the bacteria that disables one of the body's first immune responses, giving insight into mechanisms that are largely not understood. He has also observed a never-before-seen phenomena demonstrating that even without this protein and with the immune system responding perfectly, the bacteria can spring back in the body weeks later. Understanding this bacteria, which is amongst only a few pathogens that can actually persist in the body for long periods of time, has major implications for the treatment of tick-borne diseases like Lyme disease, which is an increasingly chronic and consistently prevalent public health issue.

Admin: Far Infrared really helped me, I was a bit nervous about it at first but it really did help. What I did and sure you can too, get on SSI for three years and then retire. You can take part time jobs later on, once you get it under control.

Sept 19, 2020 14:27:34 GMT -5
Admin: There are different coinfections that may be contagious, it is also thought that Lyme is spread by sexual contact. I believe strongly that Lyme is a part of what Morgellons is, plus genetics, plus co infections. Might be worth your effort to speak to an
