Bartonella: It’s more common than you think
Bartonella is a co-infection of Lyme disease. It’s more prevalent than one can imagine. Symptoms include cardiovasuclar, neurological, rheumatologic, ocular, neur-psychiatric behavior (like OCD, panic attacks, uncontrolled anger), dermatologic and gastrointestinal.
The old myth that only Lyme and its co-infections are spread by a vector (e.g., tick bite) is dinosaur thinking. It can be spread by saliva. The bacteria has been documented in the saliva of dogs, cats, and humans.
There is a high suicide rate among veterinarians and I sometimes wonder if it’s not because 28 percent of symptomatic veterinarians test positive for Bartonella. And fasten your seat belt for this one — 40 percent of chronically ill patients have tested positive for Bartonella.
When I test people with meridian stress assessment, I often find the frequency of Bartonella. Not every patient is treated the same way — while one remedy may work for you, it may not be what your sister’s body needs. And to stay on one remedy for a long time is usually not what the body wants. The bugs get used to a remedy (even antibiotics) and morphs, i.e., it builds itself a calcium-hard cocoon and crawls into it until it’s safe to come out again.
For every meridian stress assessment (which you are free to present to your holistic physician for information purposes), I offer a free food survey.
