Different tick bite related diseases

Lyme Disease; there are 21 types of intra-cellular Borrelia pathogens which cause Lyme Disease

Babesiosis; malaria-like infection caused by ‘apicomplexa’ (similar to protozoa)

Rickettsia; a group of typhus-like bacterial diseases, affecting endothelial layer or blood vessels

Bartonellosis; a group of diseases caused by bartonella bacteria

Tick borne encephalitis (TBE), also called Central European Encephalitis (CEE); a viral infection affecting the nervous system with headache and can in rare cases lead to stroke-like and other life-threatening symptoms

Mycoplasma diseases; from bacteria that can cause infections of kidneys, urinary tract and genitals; as well as pneumonia and other diseases of the respiratory system

Ehrlichia (anaplasma) disease; from bacteria that can cause fever, flu-like symptoms, headaches, arthritis, muscle aches, occasionally also stomach ache, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea

Chlamydia; like Borrelia, these are intracellular bacteria and once they have entered human body cells cannot get attacked by the immune system. They can put massive strain on organ functions

Intracellular pathogens that cause Lyme Disease
Intracellular pathogens

Unlike viruses, intracellular pathogens have their own cell membrane, nucleus and cell metabolism

Put stress on affected cells and diminish organ function, consuming nutrients and oxygen and dumping waste products of their cell metabolism

Not open to attack by the immune system within the cell

Antibiotics cannot reach intracellular pathogens

Can be completely mute and inactive for long periods of time

Like all pathogens, as soon as the strength of the immune system diminishes, they increase their activity
