Lyme disease in women can be very unpleasant, especially if it is not diagnosed correctly at an early stage. Women who believe they may have been infected by the bacteria genusBorreila from a deer tick or mosquito bite should seek medical help immediately, especially if symptoms develop. At this stage, Lyme disease can be effectively treated with antibiotics but if no symptoms are present and the person doesn’t develop symptoms until much later in time, it can be almost impossible to find relief using conventional medicine.
Lyme disease is the fastest growing vector-borne disease, meaning it is an illness caused by an infectious microbe that is transmitted to people by blood-sucking arthropods (insects or arachnids). 85% of women with Lyme disease do not remember being bitten and less than 70% develop the bulls-eye rash most commonly associated with Lyme disease.
When an infected tick or mosquito bites, bacteria travel to the tick's salivary glands and then into the body through the skin. It takes about 24 hours for a tick to attach itself to the skin and begin to feed. The tick generally must be attached for about 36 hours in order for it to transmit the Lyme disease bacteria.
Lyme Disease in Women – What to Look For
The symptoms of Lyme disease depend on the stage of the disease. You may first notice symptoms weeks to months after the tick bite. If the disease isn't treated, it may progress from mild symptoms to serious, long-term disabilities.
Early symptoms of Lyme disease in women may include flu’- like illness such as fever, chills, aches and pains. As mentioned before, a bulls-eye rash may appear but this isn’t common. The sudden onset of Bell’s palsy is also another classic symptom of Lyme disease in the early stages. Lyme disease in women can be difficult to detect in the early stages if no rash is present as lab tests may be negative in the first 4-6 weeks.
If none of the symptoms above are present, or if they are ignored, Lyme disease in women may present itself at a later stage in more acute ways such as constant headache, light sensitivity, stiff neck, sleep disturbance, arthritis, fatigue and chest pain. At this stage, which may be months or even years after the original bite, if Lyme disease in women isn't promptly or effectively treated, permanent damage to the joints, nerves, and brain may develop.
Lyme Disease in Women – Alternative Treatment Options
Our most effective protocol for treating Lyme Disease is ozone therapy. When ozone is used for medical purposes, it is passed through an electrical coil that causes it to split into three atoms (usually, ozone is composed of two different atoms). In this way, ozone it no longer O2 – it becomes O3, and that third atom is what “supercharges” it and makes it effective as a medical treatment.
When ozone is introduced into the body of the person who is suffering from Lyme Disease, it increases the blood’s oxygen level. That’s what facilitates healing. The increased oxygen level offers the following benefits:
- Detoxifies the liver
- Decreases the level of uric acid in the body
- De-clogs the blood cells
- Improves the circulation
- Enhances the immune system
- Kills viruses, bacteria and fungi
- Improves cellular metabolism
When you consider these myriad benefits, you can see that ozone is very helpful to your overall health. It boosts the immune system and works to ease the symptoms of a variety of illnesses, not the least of which is Lyme disease in women.
