How Lyme Works

I found an interesting clip today while browsing youtube. This video does a great job of explaining how lyme spirochetes operate and how they compromise the body by confusing the immune system. I was also very impressed that they listed the different ways in which the infection is spread. There is a common misconception that it is contracted only from tick bites, and most people - doctors included - focus only on that. As for the treatment options at the end....I found them a bit lacking in specific information, though I do agree that the disease, it's co-infections and the toxins they all leave behind need to be considered and treated according to each one's effect on the body.
