Lyme Disease and the Brain

human brain lyme psychologyMost people mistakenly believe Lyme is a physical disorder not related to the central nervous system and brain. In fact, Lyme is primarily a disease of the brain! Yes, PRIMARILY. This fact needs to be more well-appreciated and widely known and accepted.


Guest Blogger…Bonnie shares her biblical perspective

Blog post from Bonnie Slack, Bonnie is a guest blogger and shares her thoughts on spirituality as it relates to the Lyme struggle.

The biblical concept of sowing and reaping has always intrigued me.  There is a barbaric and creepy example of it in Judges 1.  The Israelites go in and capture a local king, Adoni-Bezek, and they cut off his thumbs and big toes.  Yikes! Then he says, “Seventy kings with their thumbs and big toes cut off have picked up scraps under my table.  Now God has paid me back for what I did to them.”


Lyme in Maine on the Rise

Lyme incidence in Maine

The incidence of Lyme disease in Maine continues to increase, and the rate of increase in incidence this year is significant compared to previous years. While this might be partially explained by growing awareness of the signs and symptoms of early Lyme disease among healthcare providers, and in the public, it is also likely that the number of new infections is truly increasing.

Most of the increases in reported incidence have occurred in southern Maine and in the midcoast. Some inland areas, including Kennebec County, have also experienced an upsurge in reported cases, a phenomenon that is consistent with ecological studies tracking changes in deer tick populations.

Post-Lyme Syndrome: The Scoop

Post Lyme SyndromeIn this post we will look at Post Lyme Syndrome – is it real or not? First, a little background. Current antibiotic guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control are vastly inadequate and based on antiquated, inaccurate, and unreliable data.

While some people do get well by following these guidelines, a significant percentage do not. Many people remain sick despite a two or three week course of doxycycline or penicillin—the length and choice of antibiotic therapy which the Centers for Disease Control dogmatically and ignorantly insist is adequate treatment. Recent estimates suggest that up to 30% of Lyme Disease cases do not get resolved after following these CDC guidelines.


Lyme Cases Exploding in Massachusetts

Massachussetts Lyme CasesThe state of Massachusetts (MA) has consistently ranked in the top ten states in the US in reported Lyme disease cases; however its numbers are decidedly on the rise. In 2005, for example, MA ranked 4th nationwide in case numbers with 2,341 reported Lyme cases to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a 46% increase over 2004 numbers. Nationally, the reported cases totaled 23,305, an 18% increase in numbers.

The largest increases in MA were seen in Suffolk, Norfolk, and Middlesex Counties. The majority of confirmed cases had onsets in June, July and August. The average age for a confirmed Lyme disease case was 39 years.  The highest reported incidence rates were among children aged 5-9 years and adults aged 60-64 years, and 35% of confirmed cases did not report an EM rash.
