Lyme’s disease may have deeper consequences

Excerpted from the Hibbing  Daily Tribune :  (04/12/2017)

HIBBING — St. Louis and Itasca counties are in the highest risk zones for tick borne disease in the state, according to the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH).

In St. Louis County there are been nearly 900 confirmed cases of Lyme’s disease since 2000.

The number of Lyme disease cases has been increasing dramatically since the 1990s, the MDH points out. A variety of factors — including increasing physician awareness, increasing infection rates in ticks and expanding tick distribution — may have led to this trend.

Typically, Lyme’s disease diagnosis and research is based on blood tests that look at the body’s antibody response to the infection

Yet, according to Thomas Grier, a microbiologist based in Duluth, blood tests may be missing the full extent of the Lyme disease infection.

Grier, who since 1997 has been studying the brains of dementia and Lyme disease patients, has found a startling relationship between the bacteria present in Lyme’s disease and the bacteria present in dementia.

For Grier this research proves a possible infectious component to dementia that is directly related to Lyme disease.

  1. Hi – sorry to be the school marm, but the infection is actually Lyme Disease, not Lyme’s Disease. It’s good to keep the issue on people’s radar. I’m a survivor as is my entire family….

    • My daughter was treated for Lyme Disease at Tri Life clinic in Ft Collins CO. It appears to be gone now. I highly recommend this clinic. The docs are medical doctors as well as naturopathic doctors. The protocol of silver hydrosol is used along with other supplements. Also I recommend the Igenex lab in Palo Alto CA for blood testing for Lyme.
