Stem Cell Treatment for Lyme Disease
Lyme disease is one of many naturally occurring diseases that are transmitted by the bite of ticks that carry the Borrelia type of bacteria. When a tick bites and latches on the infected ticks release the bacteria into the host and the disease spreads throughout the body. Because this method of infection and spread, victims of Lyme disease are most commonly those individuals who spend time outdoors, live in wooded mountain areas, or who do a lot of hiking and camping in undeveloped areas. This is why it is important to know about this disease and to always check for ticks after spending any length of time outside in areas that are prone to having ticks. Lyme disease will be less likely and usually not as severe if the tick has been attached for less than 36 to 48 hours so the sooner the tick is discovered and removed the better. It is also important to note that not all ticks are infected so finding a tick does not mean you have Lyme disease, it just means to be watchful for the signs and symptoms. Because of its prevalence over much of the US, this is a disease that is being studied in regards to new stem cell treatments and therapies. Stem cell treatment for Lyme disease is a new field of study in regard to using naturally occurring stem cells to heal the body, but it is already showing great promise. Using stem cells to treat Lyme disease is one of our areas of focus here at NSI Stem Cell Centers!
Lyme Disease Symptoms
Symptoms of Lyme disease are usually slow and gradual in how they develop and tend to come in stages. The first sign is usually a typical bite mark if the tick has already fallen off or the discovery of the tick still attached. Once the tick is removed the bite area may become red and tender and swollen. The telltale sign of Lyme disease at the early stage is a bulls-eye ring type of rash that will spread out from around the bite. Over time it can grow to be about 30 cm (12 inches) across. Not everyone develops this easy to spot symptom though, and other early problems that need to be watched for include things like flu-like aches and pain, fatigue, fever, headache, chills, and so forth. Some of the uncommon, but still possible symptoms that develop as the disease processes and has not been caught or treated for a few weeks include irregular heartbeat, inflammation of liver, red swollen eyes, and severe fatigue and muscle weakness.
If these early symptoms are not caught and the disease is not treated for a month or more, the next stage of Lyme disease kicks in with even worsening symptoms. Joint pain and swelling hits the major joints such as the knees, shoulders, hips, and ankles or elbows. Rashes known as Erythema migraines, can cover various areas of the body. In severely advanced stages, the most dangerous symptoms of untreated Lyme disease are neurological problems. Meningitis is possible as is other conditions that can damage the brain cells and tissue. Bell’s palsy can cause paralysis of the face and is common with advanced stages of this disease. Weak and numb limbs, stiff or locking muscles and joints, nausea, vomiting, rashes, headaches, memory loss, confusion, and inability to waken are all signs of seriously advanced stages of Lyme disease.
Outlook for Patients
Even though the vast majority of Lyme disease cases are treated successfully with antibiotics when early treatment has been started, an estimated 20-30% of people will end up suffering from a condition known as Chronic Lyme disease or as it is also known Post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome. There are a number of long-term disabilities that can affect people who suffered from severe or advanced cases of the disease and they may be faced with these conditions for the rest of their lives. Most of the long-term effects and conditions are neurological or nervous system related and are not able to be cured at this time. This is where the primary focus for improving treatments for Lyme disease lies- we can treat it early on but after a certain point it becomes harder to treat and cure, and the symptoms become harder to reverse. Stem cell treatments for Lyme disease are focused on helping to reverse some of the damage done and to lessen the severity of the side effects so people can have a better quality of life. Using stem cells to treat Lyme disease involves stimulating the growth of healthy cells to replace those that have been damaged by the disease.

Stem Cell Lyme Disease
The long-term effects of untreated Lyme disease are hard to treat and just as difficult to live with, which is why stem cells are such a promising possibility for treatments. Stem cells occur naturally in the body and are what helps the body heal from injury. You cut yourself, it is stem cells that help the skin, tissues, blood vessels, and muscles heal and regrow so the injury heals. Stem cell therapy involves harvesting stem cells from certain areas of the body- bone marrow, fat cells, skin cells, spinal fluid, and blood- and creating a concentrated slurry of stem cells. This slurry is then injected into the body in areas that need healing. This process is used to help speed recovery following surgery or medical treatments or to speed healing from sports injury or other illnesses or injuries that the body has sustained.
New stem cell therapy is focused on new applications for these powerhouse cells that can help all the Lyme disease patients who suffered advanced cases and are now left with life-altering side effects. Stem cells currently being used in testing for this therapy are taken from the patient’s own body so there is little to no risk of negative side effects of the treatment. It is the stem cells that would naturally have been trying to heal the body from the damage Lyme disease caused and using them in concentrated doses helps speed up this healing process so progress is actually being seen.
Outlook and Future After Treatments
Right now, we are seeing promising results from current stem cell treatments for Lyme disease in our patients. Here at NSI Stem Cell Centers, we are currently using stem cells to treat Lyme disease with our patients, many with more advanced cases and symptoms. Though there is still research to be done and more we must learn about this application of stem cells, the results we have seen and the stories we are hearing from our patients are very promising! Most report feeling and seeing results within a few days of the first treatment, but usually multiple treatments are needed and a full 2-4 months of stem cell treatment and healing are necessary to see full potential achieved.*
Patients have reported having much more energy, a drastic reduction in the severity or number of symptoms, and a great improvement in their overall health. Stem cell treatments for Lyme disease present a wonderful new way to help improve people’s lives and restore their quality of life after it has been taken away from them due to injury or illness. Where will the new advances and discoveries for using stem cells to treat Lyme disease take us? Time will tell, but here at the NSI Stem Cell Center, we are committed to helping each and every one of our patients get the help they are so desperately seeking.
