BUFFALO GROVE, IL, USA, July 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Lyme disease cases are on the rise as summer, also known as tick season, shifts into high gear. Lyme disease is potentially fatal, and the CDC estimates the annual number of cases at half a million. Dr Cass Ingram, nutritionist and author of The Lyme Disease Cure, warns people that this number is considered low because many cases are hidden and misdiagnosed. Difficulties in diagnosis arise from the fact that Lyme disease is the great imitator; mimicking arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, MS and other health problems.
There are several types of potentially fatal ticks, including blacklegged deer tick, star tick, wood tick, and others. These ticks inject unusually destructive types of bacteria called “spirochetes” into the human body.
Ticks are barely visible to the naked eye, and in previous years they were only found in the northeastern states. Now, according to the CDC, they are found in most states in the United States.
One of the difficulties in diagnosing the disease is that people don’t know they’ve been bitten or don’t see the common red target rings around a bite, so they don’t alert their doctor to the bite. possibility of Lyme disease. If they have joint pain or joint swelling, it is most often diagnosed as arthritis.
âLyme disease actually invades the deepest recesses of the joint. Subsequently, it appears to selectively hide in the joint capsule, where it causes significant inflammation as well as tissue destruction. In addition, by a mechanism yet to be determined, it causes damage similar to that of rheumatoid arthritis. Plus, Lyme arthritis is almost as stubborn as the standard type of rheumatoid arthritis, being resistant to most medical treatments, âsays Dr. Ingram, himself a Lyme disease survivor.
âFortunately, there is hope. This hope comes from the wilderness. Incredibly, there is a wide range of natural complexes that can erase such germs, âsays Dr. Ingram.
âGray squirrels can carry ticks. Dogs and cats can also carry and bring them home. “
Anyone who is concerned that arthritis or joint pain is Lyme disease can ask their doctor for a test to make sure they are getting an accurate diagnosis. For more information, order The Lyme Disease Cure or visit Dr. Cass Ingram at www.cassingram.com.
