Big secrets come in small packages. Take cells, like the ones shedding off the inside of your cheeks and into your saliva right now. These days it’s not that hard to crack them open, shake out the DNA coiled inside, and read the genetic code they contain. Those strings of As, Cs, Ts, and Gs can tell you any number of things you might want to know—the location of your ancestral homelands, say, or which cancer drug is going to give you the best shot at beating your diagnosis. You could also discover things you wish you hadn’t: What if your dad is actually some stranger from a sperm bank? What if you have a disease-causing mutation you could pass on to your own kids? And if you leave your genetic code lying around a crime scene, cops can trace it back to you. (See link for full article)

https://suzycohen.com/articles/methylation-problems/  Pharmacist Suzy Cohen states 100’s of diseases are the result of methylation problems, including Lyme, chronic viral infections, schizophrenia, Dementia/Alzheimer’s, addictive behavior, insomnia, cancer, and more.

While methylation problems do not directly cause Lyme (it is caused by a pleomorphic bacteria called borrelia) it causes severe symptoms due to the inability to clear infections & their by-products, as well as repairing the damage they cause.
