It is astounding how in alternative medicine practices, these pathogens are commonly known about. We may contract viruses and they can live in our bodies, they can go dormant and get re-activated. Examples of this are Lyme disease and the Epstein- Bar Virus. These viruses can hide in our bodies and go dormant. Lyme diseases in particular creates a biofilm that is hard to penetrate so that it can not be killed off. https://www.cdc.gov/lyme/index.html
Lyme is a bacteria that is most often contracted from a tick, people do get in Colorado also. It then often exists with co-infections. Lyme disease is very hard to treat and in my opinion is best treated with Western, Eastern and Naturopathic Medicine. The best I can do for people is to help them detox, and support their emotions and immune system since it becomes exhausting and frustrating process. In treatment, as the biofilm gets penetrated, you have to help the body rid itself of the bacteria. It can be an up and down process, and the treatment needs to change with the symptoms and patterns, there is no "blanket" treatment.
Here is an interview with a famous Oriental Medicine Practitioner on how to treat Lyme fruehauf_lymeinterview-5.pdf
The Epstein- Bar Virus:
Also known as Mono. We may contract this at young age or in utero (also Lyme), This virus can go in-active and then stress, birth, diet or trauma may activate it.
In my experience this is a very un-diagnosed illness, though many in the Western Medical World do know about it, there is not much they can do for it besides use anti-virals. There is lot we can do with Holistic Medicine. We can boost your immune system, also use herbs to help fight the infection, give emotional support, also diet modification is key as the virus lives on certain foods, so detoxing and working with the gut is key.
