Viruses are “pieces of bad news wrapped in protein (biofilm)”. Peter Medawar, Nobel Prize winner in medicine. Lyme bacteria can create a shield called a biofilm. These bacteria are shielded from many medications. The biofilm blocks our immune system from finding the bacteria. This can create a safe house that protects the bacteria from being killed by medications or our immune system. Lyme bacteria is not the only bacteria that can create biofilms, other bacteria can as well. According to Microbial Biofilms by Ghannoum and O’Toole, different bacteria like staphylococcus and streptococcus also create biofilms. In these biofilms, many different bacteria can hide. When different bacteria congregate under a biofilm, they frequently swap genetic information with each other. This may lead to a dangerous mutated form of the Lyme bacteria.
Lyme bacteria may obtain drug resistant genes from other bacteria. Drug resistant Lyme bacteria may be an explanation for why it can survive despite years of multiple courses of antibiotics. Repressing or suppressing viral conditions (with drugs or medications) may lead to severe, chronic and/or degenerative symptoms.
Persons diagnosed with Lyme disease should find a form of regular detoxification that works for them. Toxins held in our body weaken our immune system and can damage the nervous system leading to many forms of illness, chronic disease, premature aging and oxidative stress to the body. Toxins are stored throughout our bodies in our liver, body fat, lymphatic system, joints, muscles, intestines and brain.
