As you may or may not know, the Lyme spirochete is a cousin of Syphilis, the dreaded sexually transmitted disease that has been around for centuries, and is still active today amongst sexually active people who don’t – or don’t know how – to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases.

Although the date of origin (of both diseases) is hotly disputed amongst scholars, there is no doubt that the symptoms of the syphilis are very similar to Lyme disease.

Like Lyme, the symptoms of Syphilis are many, and diverse.  It has also been called “The Great Imitator” due to the difficulty medical practitioners have had through time in accurately diagnosing the disease and for many centuries, difficulties treating the disease.

Like Lyme, Syphilis can be contracted and lie dormant for weeks, months and even years before showing symptoms.

Like Lyme, Syphilis can be actively growing in major organs, soft tissue, eye fluids, brain and bones before revealing itself causing blindness, pain and fatalities.

Like Lyme, Syphilis caused many suicides due to the difficulties of diagnosis, treatment and cure.

Like Lyme, Syphilis can be transferred through the umbilical cord to unborn children causing death in the womb, SID (sudden infant death), deformities and disease in the resulting child.

Like Lyme, Syphilis was known to cause “General paresis,” otherwise known as general term for the insane when not one particular cause can be identified – a severe manifestation of the disease in advanced condition.

Insanity and/or psychotic breaks are a severe manifestation of neuro-Syphilis and neuro-Lyme.   Unfortunately, these severe and chronic manifestations are harder to cure.

Like Lyme, Syphilis was known to cause chronic or degenerative dementia which ultimately resulted in death amongst those with neuro-Syphilis in as little as 2-3 years.

This statistic can’t be compared to neuro-Lyme due to the problems with accurate diagnosis and the absence of medical investigation at this time with neuro-Lyme.

Like Lyme, Syphilis show progressive personality changes, memory loss, and poor judgment.  They also result in depression and/or manic behavior.

At one time early-Alzheimer’s was believed to be brought on by Syphilis, and now, thanks to the brilliant research by Dr. Alan MacDonald in New York, Alzheimer’s Disease has been recently confirmed as a causative infection and in some cases the true infection causing identical symptoms.

    I have heard that Lyme Disease is just a concentrated form of Syphisis. What research has been done on this subject.
    Thanks1
