Post Lyme Disease Syndrome vs. Chronic Lyme Disease Complex
PLDS is a person who received treatment but didn’t get well and still has symptoms. There are many reasons for not getting well including the fact mainstream medicine is looking at this as a mono-disease and pretty much utilizing only doxycycline.
Chronic Lyme Disease Complex is a term to explain all the possible issues going on with a patient such as coinfections, genetic issues, chemical issues, and other things relating to health. Due to the polymicrobial nature of Lyme/MSIDS, many more medications will be required besides the mono-therapy of doxycycline. It’s also important to address the other issues contributing to their overall picture.
The one topic not discussed in this video is the persistence of many of the organisms. It’s been shown in animal studies that many of these pathogens can cause chronic disease due to pathogen persistence: Peer-Reviewed Evidence of Persistence of Lyme:MSIDS copy. Lyme isn’t alone. Bartonella and Babesia, among others, can be chronic.
When mainstream medicine chooses to follow antiquated and unscientific science, people are not treated appropriately. This is the crux of the Lyme Wars and until mainstream acknowledges and acts upon this knowledge patients will not get well.
