The Intricacy and Complexity of Lyme Disease
Borrelia, the bacteria associated with Lyme disease can morph and change its shape allowing it to hide from the immune system.This survival mechanism makes it extremely difficult to eradicate Lyme without advanced treatment strategies.
Because of the effect of Lyme Disease on our immune system, those with Lyme may be more reactive to COVID19. We recommend prevention for COVID and treatment for Lyme for most people. Call our office to help us determine how we can work with you.
The complexity of this pathogen makes is important to work with a Lyme Literate Doctor.

What is a Herxheimer Reaction?
Herxheimer reactions are negative reactions to detoxification and the killing of pathogens. While sometimes herxheimer reactions are difficult to avoid as we learn how your body responds to specific and unique treatments, we want to avoid herxheimer reactions as much as possible. Some doctors encourage Lyme patients to take a year off of work and life because of intense detox reactions. Our philosophy is different. If your body is responding negatively to a Lyme treatment it is a sign that you are killing pathogens at a rate that your body is not able to detox the toxins that get released when Borrelia is dying. This is inflammatory to the body and is important to minimize as much as possible.
Top 5 Reasons for Herxheimer Reactions
- Too many toxins coming in
- Too few toxins going out
- NRF2 gene disruption: leads to lowered ability to detoxify
- MRP2 protein disruption: leads to lowered abilty to detoxify
- Phase I and Phase II detoxification imbalances
