Christianmom Posted January 20, 2012 Report Share Posted January 20, 2012 I read this in an article by Dr. Klinghardt: "The list of significant [lyme] co-infections is limited: roundworms, tapeworms, threadworms, toxoplasmosis, giardia and amoebas, clostridia, the herpes virus family, parvovirus B 19, active measles (in the small intestine), leptospirosis, chronic strep infections and their mutations, Babesia, Brucella, Ehrlichiosis, Bartonella, mycoplasma, Rickettsia, Bartonella and a few others." There are many more infections here than are typically thought of as lyme co-infections, and I was curious if anyone has any thoughts on this. Is he saying, for instance, that ticks can pass roundworm? This is very interesting to me because my son tested positive for "hook worm" in his Metametrix testing. I was also wondering what he meant by "chronic strep infections." Is he saying that ticks can carry more virulent types of strep that are hard to get over and therefore cause chronic infection? Would this be the reason why my son's DNASE continues to rise while his ASO is normal? I would appreciate anyone's thoughts. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
