Welcome To Lyme Bytes!
April, 2014- HELLO ALL! I am no longer posting to this blog. For the latest on me and my work, I invite you to subscribe to my NEW blog: www.conniestrasheim.blogspot.com where I share my latest findings on how to heal from chronic illness involving Lyme and other conditions. Thanks!
Greetings and welcome to my Lyme disease blog, a comfy cozy (and sometimes crazy!) place for cutting-edge information, encouragement and insight into the fastest-growing epidemic disease in the United States. In this blog you will find everything from bug-killing strategies to immune system and hormone help, as well as lifestyle and spiritual suggestions for healing from chronic illness involving Lyme disease. The information contained within this blog is based upon my own healing journey and what I have learned over the past eight years as I have been diligently digging and researching my way back to a better state of health. May you find it to be a source of hope, inspiration and wisdom in your own journey towards wellness.

I've heard this before, but Dr. Charles Ray Jones, M.D., revered for his reputation of having helped over 10,000 children to heal from Lyme disease, affirmed this theory at last Saturday's LIA (Lyme-Induced Autism) conference. Coming from a guy like Jones, hearing it again solidified my belief that we can no longer ignore this nasty little (or not so little) co-infection.
Tests for mycoplasma can be done at Clongen Labs www.clongen.com. As well, this lab also performs western blot and PCR testing for borrelia and other co-infections. (PCR stands for polymerase chain reaction. This expensive, and very technical test, detects the DNA of borrelia and other pathogens). So we now have another useful lab for Lyme disease testing, besides Fry, Central Florida Research and IgeneX.
Don't despair; mycoplasma, while a serious infection that can cause disabling illness, can be effectively treated, along with Lyme disease. Dr. Jones uses zithromax for treatment of mycoplasma fermentans, the strain linked to Gulf War Syndrome and which is found in many Lyme disease sufferers. Strategies in energy medicine (noted in an earlier post on mycoplasma) are also proving to be useful for repelling the pathogen. Just don't ignore this vicious little organism, as if you do, you may find yourself with an even more complicated disease than you already have now.
