Lyme Disease and Morgellons: A New Breakthrough Connection
Mar 9th 2021
There are perhaps no chronic illnesses less well-understood than Morgellons and Lyme Disease. Morgellons is a condition in which fibrous materials break through the skin barrier and cause unbearable pain and itching. Lyme disease is transmitted by a tick bite and can cause body-wide inflammation and infection. Recent studies have shed light on the connection between the two conditions.
The bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi, carried by ticks, is the cause of most infections of Lyme disease. Borrelia burgdorferi is a member of the spirochetes group, a group of bacteria found in many patients diagnosed with Lyme. A recent study by microbiologists in Canada and the United States has found that nearly 90% of patients presenting with Morgellons symptoms have tested positive for spirochetes, 40% of which were positive for Borrelia burgdorferi.
Unfortunately, the lack of available testing for spirochetes compounds the difficulty for both Lyme Disease and Morgellons diagnosis. Advocates call for greater wide-spread and accessible testing efforts.
While testing measures fall short when providing adequate diagnosis and relief of Morgellons, we at TCO Glow hope to provide a respite from the torturous symptoms of the disease. Though not a cure, our A/B Topical Rub can help extract the painful fibers from skin before lesions have a chance to appear.
By targeting the fibers before they breach the skin, the A/B Topical Rub has the potential to provide relief from crawling, biting, stinging, and itching sensations. But don’t just take our word for it, read the testimonials for yourself of real Morgellons patients finding reprieve.
