Why is Lyme Disease so Difficult to Treat?

LymeLyme Disease Symptoms, Lyme Disease Treatment disease was initially discovered about 30 years ago in Lyme, Connecticut.  Since then, Lyme disease has become the most undiagnosed and untreated epidemic in the 21st century. While Lyme disease is often attributed to tick bites, recent studies have also shown that it may also be known to be transmitted by other insects such as mosquitos, blood transfusions, and even gestationally (transmitted from mother to child). Lyme disease is a bacterial infection caused by the spirochete (Borrelia burgdorferi) which can also mimic and has been misdiagnosed as virtually any disease including but not limited to CFS, Fibromyalgia, MS, depression, bipolar disorder, Alzheimer’s, and ALS. Lyme disease is a serious condition affecting multiple areas of the body with symptoms appearing within 1-2 weeks after being bitten. The bite often begins with a telltale red rash, or a “bulls-eye” ring, usually, although not exclusively surrounding the site of the bite.

Since the infection varies and can manifest in over 100 different symptoms with no two people being the same, Lyme Disease is usually not even considered by most physicians.   Even if testing is performed, standard testing misses over 90% of the cases of Chronic Lyme Disease. This is because the standard methods of testing were designed to test for Acute Lyme Disease and not Chronic Lyme.

The standard testing method is an immunoassay test of IgG and IgM antibodies followed by Western blot for confirmation.  In addition, most doctors use the CDC (Center for Disease Control) criteria to define/identify a positive test. The problem with this is that the the CDC criteria was never meant for diagnosis, it was meant for epidemiological surveillance (tracking).

What Makes Us Different

At Sunridge Medical our physcians use an expanded Western blot with revised requirement criteria for diagnosis. This allows for improved sensitivity for detection as well as a low false-positive rate. Our tests are run at Igenex Labs in California. Igenex is a laboratory that specializes in the testing of tick-borne illness exclusively and is considered the top laboratory for Lyme testing. If one is diagnosed with Lyme Disease, the treatment is not as simple as taking antibiotics. Since infection with Lyme can transform itself into various forms – the standard, cell walled form, the non-cell walled form (L-form) and the cyst form. Treatment with antibiotics alone is often ineffective as the antibiotic treatment is only effective against the standard, cell-walled form of Lyme.

With this being said, even using antibiotics for extended periods, such as months or even years can be of little benefit. It is important to have a multi-factorial, multi-system, integrative approach to be effective against Lyme Disease. At Sunridge Medical, our physicians use combination of medicines to treat the various forms of Lyme and at the same time to increase immune function, modulate hormones, treat coagulation disorders as well as detoxify the body of the infection. The integration of traditional medicine with holistic alternative remedies dramatically increases the success for the treatment of Lyme Disease.

At Sunridge Medical you are not alone! Many of our patients come to Sunridge with chronic Lyme disease and complain of “weird” or “strange” symptoms that could not be explained by their doctor.  In fact some patients have said that after numerous doctor visits they were told by their physician it was a psychological problem or that their symptoms were hypochondrial in nature. Although a tick bite is an important clue for diagnosis, often times our patients don’t recall ever being bit by a tick.  This is not surprising because ticks are tiny and their bites are usually painless.
