Lyme Disease - the multisystem infectious disease
The human body: a paradise for settlers of all kinds
Lyme disease disorders are on the rise. The tick disease is now one of the most common bacterial infectious diseases in Germany. It is called Lyme disease or Lyme borreliosis after the American discovery site.
Lyme borreliosis is (presumably) caused by bacteria of the species Borrelia burgdorferi. The Borrelia bacteria enter the bloodstream through bites or stings (ticks, insects, fleas, mosquitoes, wasps, etc.) and spread in the tissues and organs of the human body causing numerous non-specific symptoms. In particular, the nervous system, the muscular system, the intestines, the bladder, the skin or the heart may be affected. If the Lyme disease bacteria have penetrated the nervous system - CNS (central nervous system) and brain – it is called a neuroborreliosis.
Take warning signs seriously!
Not every tick bite automatically means an infection. However, those affected should contact an expert at the first signs, such as skin redness after the bite or sting and the associated rash (erythema migrans).
With timely detection, Lyme disease can be treated very effectively in most cases. The migrating redness indicates a Lyme infection, but it does not occur in everyone infected with Borrelia. However, the absence of erythema migrans does not mean that there is no infection with Borrelia or any other pathogen.
Erythema migrans = response of the body's immune system to the Borrelia infection. If the function of the immune system is weakened, the immune response of the body may be absent, that is, the erythema migrans is then not formed despite an infection. Lyme disease runs in several stages.
The incubation period can vary widely and can last for days, weeks, months or even years. Because of this, many people affected by a tick bite initially do not associate later symptoms with the bite.
The underrated "syphilis" from the forest
Lyme disease is a treacherous disease with many faces and masks and, therefore, is usually difficult to detect and treat with the investigation and treatment methods supported by statutory health insurance.
Experts refer to the tick disease as the "syphilis of the 3rd millennium". In contrast to the pathogens of syphilis, however, the pathogens of Lyme disease are far more adaptable to new living conditions and, therefore, more resistant to many therapies.
Lyme disease is a multisystem infectious disease with a variety of symptoms, different disease processes and sometimes long incubation periods. This often makes it very difficult to recognize the disease. As a "causal physician" ", it is very important to me to get to the bottom of your complaints. As with other infectious diseases, thorough investigation of the cause, anamnesis, clinical and laboratory examinations are, therefore, essential for the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme borreliosis.
The diagnosis in particular is extremely important for the tick-borne disease because it ultimately determines if you have Lyme disease. If, despite negative laboratory values (because they are not sensitive enough), the symptoms point to Lyme disease, the start of "as if" borreliosis therapy is recommended. Even if the patient gets better after a short time the therapy is continued. This is not just my own experience but also that of the German Society for Lyme Disease e.V.
The Dr. Stoenescu Method
The study of Borrelia, viruses and parasites, as well as their treatment, requires a lot of knowledge and experience. With the "Dr. Stoenescu Method" I am able to quickly make a diagnosis and thus determine an effective therapy. The goal of my "Dr. Stoenescu Method" is to recognize the causes of your symptoms before the onset of a serious illness.
I am happy to work with you to develop a solution for your specific illness and your problem.
"Parasites in humans" have shaped me
You may be wondering why an anaesthetist, pain specialist and herbalist deals so extensively with the topic of "parasites in humans". Lyme disease can also be transmitted by parasites! I have first-hand experience of the "tick-borne disease" through my mother-in-law's Lyme disease illness. Extensive research in natural medicine, in environmental medicine and in infectiology have brought me new insights. I have learned about silent inflammation and about co-infections with other pathogens that simultaneously enter the body with Lyme disease. I have attended congresses on the topic of Lyme disease, listened to lectures on the topic, attended a Lyme disease centre (because of hyperthermia therapy), met Mrs. Petra Hopf-Seidel, read her wonderful book "Ill after a Tick Bite" and spoken to leading laboratories in Germany.
In the past, I also had a rather distant relationship with parasites, borrelia, viruses or worms. That has changed fundamentally. In the meantime, I have lost my disgust of them and have even developed a real passion for these intelligent creatures. How did that happen? I will tell you my story.
