    Default Multiple Sclerosis might be a form of Lyme Disease

    Chronic Lyme borreliosis at the root of multiple sclerosis

    This comes from a theoretical journal of medicine.

    Worldwide, MS prevalence parallels the distribution of the Lyme disease pathogen Borrelia (B.) burgdorferi, and in America and Europe, the birth excesses of those individuals who later in life develop MS exactly mirror the seasonal distributions of Borrelia transmitting Ixodes ticks. In addition to known acute infections, no other disease exhibits equally marked epidemiological clusters by season and locality, nurturing the hope that prevention might ultimately be attainable.
    I don't know what the author means by "birth excesses", but apparently, the distribution of Multiple Sclerosis exactly correlates both temporally and geographically with the distribution of this Borrelia transmitting tick.

    From a more sensational website:

    Several older but also recent autopsy findings linked to in this article found that all deceased MS patients’ brains harbored living Lyme spirochetes. Even when tests, notorious for their large percentage of false negatives were used on living MS patients, staggeringly many tested positive for active Lyme borreliosis.
    Multiple sclerosis is Lyme disease: Anatomy of a cover-up

    This is a very simple theory/claim to test. Put MS patients on minocycline (an antibiotic) and see if they get better. I'm agnostic at this point since I haven't taken the time to verify that lyme spirochaetes are found in autopsies of MS patients. If that is indeed the case, then MS is very curable.

    How about Herpes? Cancer? Yes, people, it's a conspiracy. It's really all Lyme disease. Run for your life. Is there anything people don't think is Lyme disease? "Get your Lyme test, here!" (Says a Lyme "specialist" who wants your $$$$.) The net is infected with a Lyme obsession. It's been going on for so many years I've lost count.

    I'm only interested in the facts. Is the claim that incidences of MS occur at the same places where Borrelia laden ticks are found a true claim? Is it true or not true that Borrelia spirochaetes are found in Multiple Sclerosis patients? I'd also be interested in knowing what percentage of MS patients have been bitten by ticks.

    I'll try to dig up some journal articles on these very simple questions.

    Journal articles are to truth what The Bible is to truth. It's all in what you want to believe.

    The first three articles I came across looked at antibodies to the Borrelia bacteria in MS patients. Most MS patients did not have any antibodies to the lyme disease bacteria. The third paper found antibodies to viruses in 85% of MS patients, but not to bacteria. I'll try to find out if antibiotic therapy works in MS patients.

    The theory that MS is Lyme Disease isn't holding up very well.

    Antibiotics don't seem to work either. Ok, this theory is nonsense.
