Borreliosis - plague of the 21st century
Borreliosis is spreading rapidly and is considered a plague of the 21st century. Ticks become active at 7 degrees and are nearly an all-year-plague. Experts assume a high contamination of the population and estimate this up to 60%. In addition, in almost every secondtick, Borrelia is carried in many regions of Germany. A large proportion of people suffering from borreliosis have several infections, so-called co-infections. Co-infections are the rule and not the exception, especially in chronic cases of borreliosis. Chronic borreliosis reduces the body's defenses and can induce autoimmune diseases, food intolerances such as rheumatoid symptoms, thyroid diseases and a possible multiple sclerosis as sequelae.
Course of chronic borreliosis
An acute borrelia infection can be transmitted not only by ticks, but also by different insects and also by sexual intercourse. Often a borrelia infection is not recognized as such. After a tick bite, only one other develops a flush, Erythma Migrans. In this acute stage, Borrelia infection is very well cured. However, unenlightened physicians often make a wrong diagnosis, no standard antibodies are used to detect antibodies, and a false-negative result is generated. In addition the doctors are not aware of the various transmission routes; It is not just the ticks! Often the therapy is too short and the Borrelia infection can not heal properly.
This is followed by a latency phase, which can take 5-10 years. In the course of this latency, the symptoms often develop "creepingly" over a long period of time and are all too often viewed as a normal phenomenon of aging or misinterpreted due to the multisymptome symptoms. Chronic borreliosis can manifest itself in the most varied areas of the body. For example neuroborreliosis. Neuroborreliosis is the most frequent disease manifestation of a borrelia infection in Europe with about 50% after erythema migrans.
Lyme borreliosis is one of the diseases which not only manifests itself physically, but can also have a decisive influence on the social life of the affected person. Due to depression, the patient may completely retract and a suicidad ideation may result.
