New research indicates, however, there may no longer be a division of babesial strains between the East Coast and the West Coast. In their article “Babesia microtiBorrelia burgdorferi Co-infection,” Parveen reports that B. duncani has now been identified in eastern USA and Canada.¹

“Since B. duncani is widespread in Canada, its southern spread into northeastern U.S., an area already endemic for Lyme disease, makes co-infections with B. duncani and B. burgdorferi [Lyme disease] a possibility that needs to be carefully investigated.”

“While this review focuses on co-infection with B. microti and B. burgdorferi, there is some evidence that co-infections with a different Babesia species, B. duncani, and B. burgdorferi may be more common than previously suspected,” writes Parveen.

**Comment**

This article exposes a crucial issue that mainstream medicine is still in the dark ages on – ticks are coinfected and so are we.  This is not straight-forward.  The very thought that doxycycline is going to cover this hodgepodge of pathogens is truly asinine if you study the research:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2019/02/22/why-mainstream-lyme-msids-research-remains-in-the-dark-ages/

I could literally go on and on to infinity – but you get the pointLyme/MSIDS patients are rarely infected with just Lyme which is why testing is a bit of a joke as well as the mono-therapy of doxycycline.  It takes savvy, education, and experience to treat this complex illness that is literally killing people – or making them want to die.

If your doctor is open-minded (a rare quality these days), please attempt to give them continuing education information that could revolutionize the way patients are being treated:
