Suppose you were walking in the jungle and a rabid spider monkey jumped onto the back of your head and started biting you and scratching you. What would you do? Would you say “Well, I seem to be wounded and bleeding, I better go into the jungle a little ways further and find some nice herbs for a poultice for my bleeding head.”?
What’s wrong with that picture? Well the rabid little spider monkey is still biting you and trying to remove your scalp, so the first order of business is to get the spider monkey off your head, then you can hunt for some poultice herbs. That is perhaps a simplistic illustration to explain Lyme disease, but to some extent it really does apply, not only to Lyme disease, but many of the associated health conditions that go hand in hand with it like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and various autoimmune diseases that have an insidious infectious component. Yes, having microbes attack you can be dangerous and sometimes you HAVE to kill them. It would be inappropriate to label all antibiotic use as worthless. I don’t think anyone is that stupid. Everyone knows that antibiotics can save lives. But what about with chronic Lyme disease when they fail…….. when this happens you MUST take terrain into account.
