Platelet Therapy™ for Patients With Lyme Disease

Platelet Therapy™ can alleviate the symptoms and have a significant impact on the bacteria that causes Lyme disease known as Borrelia burgdorferi. Understanding the signs and symptoms of Lyme disease is one of the most crucial aspects of finding appropriate treatment. Lyme disease is the most common vector-borne disease in the United States. Humans become infected when a black-legged tick, commonly called a deer tick, bites them and they become infected. Discover how Platelet Therapy™ can help combat the disease and improve your overall health and well-being.

What Role Do Platelets Play in the Body’s Response to Bacteria?

Platelets act like drones in your body, seeking out pathogens and viruses to destroy. Platelets are responsible for initiating our immune response by signaling to the white blood cell once they encounter a virus or pathogen. However, in cases of Autoimmune diseases, a therapeutic concentration of platelets needs to be injected in order for the body to mount a renewed attack against viruses that have been well-established in our body. Platelet Therapy™ has antibacterial qualities that make it effective against borrelia burgdorferi, the bacteria that causes Lyme Disease. According to the scientific literature, this antibacterial effect occurs because of the therapeutic concentration of at least 1.5 Billion platelets per mL injected or greater. These therapeutic concentrations can be achieved and validated with the technology from Platelet Therapy™. This is why patients are experiencing relief from their symptoms from Lyme and other Autoimmune disorders after receiving multiple injections of Platelet Therapy™.

How Can Platelet Therapy™ Help?

By releasing a therapeutic concentration of platelets into the body, your immune system will recognize the increase in platelets and will immediately search out inflammation in your body. Platelets have receptors on them and are sensitive to different proteins that signal to the platelets for their help in fighting inflammation. This type of immune response only happens when Platelet Therapy™ is in the therapeutic concentration. This is why it is important to know if your provider takes into consideration your platelet count as well so they validate the concentration before injection.

Begin Your Lyme Disease Recovery Today

Using your body’s natural immune response is a safe and effective way to treat an invasion of viruses, bacteria, or other pathogens. Lyme disease shouldn’t be ignored, and symptoms can drastically reduce your quality of life.
