A bite from a specific type of tick carrying a specific bacteria is how Lyme disease is transmitted.  Animals that commonly carry these ticks are white-footed field mice, deer, raccoons, opossums, skunks, weasels, foxes, shrews, moles, chipmunks, squirrels, and horses.  New Jersey is one of the Eastern states where the majority of these ticks live and large numbers of people contract Lyme Disease.

Many people who have contracted Lyme Disease do not know they have it, because the symptoms mimics the symptoms of many other diseases and viruses. As a result, they are not accurately diagnosed until the disease has progressed into the later stages where symptoms are much more severe and take more time to overcome.

Flu-like symptoms including a stiff neck; chills; fever; swollen lymph nodes; headaches; extreme fatigue; body and muscle aches; and joint pain, stiffness and swelling are felt in the early stages of Lyme disease.  70{3c5d7bedb8d9424d4863845e562599bee79a2158b23e861254be5a91361680b4}-80{3c5d7bedb8d9424d4863845e562599bee79a2158b23e861254be5a91361680b4} of people get a large, expanding skin rash centering around the tick bite site (can resemble a bulls eye).  In the later stages of the disease, nerve problems and arthritis, are typically experienced.  10{3c5d7bedb8d9424d4863845e562599bee79a2158b23e861254be5a91361680b4} to 20{3c5d7bedb8d9424d4863845e562599bee79a2158b23e861254be5a91361680b4} of untreated victims develop life-long arthritis.  This disease attacks the body’s nervous system, resulting in a stiff neck and migraine headache (meningitis), facial muscles being temporarily paralyzed (Bell’s Palsy), numbness, weakness and pain in the limbs, and poor motor skills. Less severe symptoms include memory loss, lack of concentration, and mood and sleep disruptions. 10{3c5d7bedb8d9424d4863845e562599bee79a2158b23e861254be5a91361680b4} of people develop heart problems and the associated dizziness and shortness of breath.

Finding a Doctor is Lyme Disease experience is vital for someone with Lyme Disease.  Antibiotics are the normal required medication to eliminate Lyme Disease.  The longer a person has had Lyme Disease, the longer they must take antibiotics.

Myofascial Release therapy is a proven effective solution to help Lyme Disease patients recover faster and better.  MFR opens up and releases the tight central nervous system, as well as reduces inflammation, and opens up the body tissues to better absorb and utilize the antibiotics.
