LYME DISEASE UPDATE (good news!)

LYME DISEASE UPDATE:
One of the many problems with the Lyme disease bacteria is that when under attack, they can coat themselves with a biofilm. Think ‘getting slimed from ghostbusters…

…in fact:
 
“A biofilm is any group of microorganisms in which cells stick to each other and often these cells adhere to a surface. Biofilm is a polymeric conglomeration generally composed of extracellular DNA, proteins, and polysaccharides. These adherent cells are frequently embedded within a self-produced matrix of extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) which may also be referred to as SLIME (although not everything described as slime is a biofilm).” wiki
 
Is this mucous-y armor-y biofilm strong? Strong enough to withstand the antibiotics used to kill them and tadpole biofilm has even been found intact from the Miocene era so, yeah. Lyme disease bacteria can morph back and forth into this armor-like biofilm when attacked and remove it when it is going about its normal (destructive) life cycle. In fact, antibiotics like doxycycline, the standard treatment for Lyme disease, actually trigger the bacteria into producing this biofilm armor.

“The culprit behind Lyme disease, which is a bacterial infection, is spirochete bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. The antibiotics proven to kill this form of bacteria are doxycycline and amoxicillin. However, Borrelia burgdorferi can be found in morphological forms, including spirochetes, spheroplast (or L-form), round bodies, and biofilms. When conditions are considered unfavourable for the bacteria, it morphs into the dormant round body, then hides in a biofilm form. When conditions are favourable, however, it can shift back to its spirochete form.”
 
So what’s a Lyme disease sufferer to do when THE TREATMENT essentially STRENGTHENS the antibiotic resistance of the PATHOGEN?

THE GOOD NEWS:
A new study shows there is increased hope for Lyme disease sufferers. The use of Stevia, a common sugar, has been fond to destroy the biofilm. Taking STEVIA and ANTIBIOTICS will destroy the biofilm and the bacteria more effectively:

“Subculture experiments with Stevia and antibiotics treated cells were established for 7 and 14 days yielding, no and 10% viable cells, respectively compared to the above-mentioned antibiotics and antibiotic combination. When Stevia and the three antibiotics were tested against attached biofilms, Stevia significantly reduced B. burgdorferi forms. Results from this study suggest that a natural product such as Stevia leaf extract could be considered as an effective agent against B. burgdorferi.”
