(NaturalNews) "Under Our Skin" was a documentary released a couple of years ago regarding the mysterious Lyme disease, named after the town of Lyme, Connecticut where the outbreak had originally occurred around 1975. The documentary focused on the difficulties of getting correct diagnosis and treatment from mainstream medicine while the insurance companies tended to ignore the victims' claims.

But why didn't the documentary cover alternative healing possibilities? And what about the suspicions regarding the Plum Island bioweapons lab, located very near Lyme, CT? Those are the real mysteries to be explored.

Lyme Disease Origin and Symptoms

Lyme disease is caused by an infecting spirochete bacteria. The label refers to their shape and wiggly tendency. The specific spirochete for Lyme Disease is Borrelia burgdorferi. In Europe, another bacterium, Borrelia afzelii causes Lyme disease. These bacteria are carried in the stomachs of ticks. People are infected by the carrier ticks' bites, but Lyme disease is not infectious among humans. Whether an infected animal's bite can cause problems is currently unknown.

A different spirochete is the source of syphilis, which also directly infects the brain to create dementia or the neurological damage similar to symptoms many Lyme disease victims exhibit. Those symptoms often mimic multiple sclerosis (MS), Alzheimer's, Parkinson's Disease, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lupus, Anxiety, Depression, and more.

And not everyone who is infected exhibits the same symptoms at the same time. Its manifestations are layered. This does make it complicated for mainstream medicine, to the point where many doctors consider it a psychiatric problem.

Mainstream Medicine's Attitude

Many AMA doctors consider any lack of response within a month of antibiotic treatment to be an indication the Lyme Disease never even existed in the patient! Pretty arrogant. So an it's-all-in-your-head syndrome is cast on the victims. Many insurance carriers won't cover chronic Lyme medical claims.

Some doctors don't mind administering a lifetime of antibiotics and other drugs. That's usually a downhill slope to worsening health complications from the side effects, including the virtual extinction of vitally essential friendly flora in the gut. Many experts consider 60 to 80 percent of our immune system to be in the gastrointestinal or GI tract because of the friendly bacteria, which antibiotics indiscriminately kill along with the bad guys.

Dr. Ronald D. Whitmont, an MD and homeopath has written: "Antibiotics do not cure infections. This is a common misconception, even among physicians." Actually, antibiotics reduce the load of pathogenic bacteria to a level that allows the host's immune system to overcome the invasion. Dr. Whitmont continues, "Neither the antibiotic nor the host's immune response is sufficient to break the [Lyme] cycle. The continued use of stronger and broader spectrum [antibiotic] agents only weakens the immune system further and allows the infection to slip deeper into organs ... ."

So, continued use of antibiotics for Lyme Disease is counter productive, even dangerous. With early detection and immune system support, there have been some successes for Lyme with short term antibiotic use. Though for the wrong reasons, the Medical Mafia's refusal to continue with long term antibiotic therapy and little or no immune system support is a blessing in disguise for Lyme sufferers!

The real tragedy is that the documentary didn't probe into alternative solutions, condemning victims to the prospect of a life on antibiotics, if only the mainstream medical profession would provide it and insurers would cover it. This life long antibiotic dependency would likely guarantee a life of worsening health.
