Leptospirosis is far more common than people realize.
>>Persistent human leptospirosis - guide for the public
Persistent infection is a situation where the patient has recovered from an acute illness, but shows some long-term health effects caused by the bacteria remaining in isolated areas of the body, long after the immune system has removed them from the bloodstream and general tissues. It is different from a carrier state as the patient is not infectious to others, but persistent human leptospirosis (PHL) is far more common than previously thought.
These long-term issues are not only a factor of leptospirosis - other infections from bacteria in the same order, such as Lyme disease, often show health problems for several years after recovery.
Symptoms of PHL
Symptoms vary a great deal between patients, with some being almost incapacitated and others noticing nothing. The reported symptoms are listed below, with the most common first:-
Depression, from mild personality changes to quite severe clinical disorders and suicides.
Fatigue, often quite pronounced and debilitating
Headaches, resembling migraines but not always particularly severe.
Eye pain, with or without any inflammation, sometimes with vision disturbances.
Psychological changes, including mood swings, short tempers, rarely OCD.
PIEM, parainfectious encephalomyelitis, is seen in quite a few cases. This is damage to the nervous system and manifests in different ways, so patients can show symptoms of meningitis, epilepsy, balance problems, muscle weakness and vision disturbance. It can mimic the symptoms of multiple sclerosis.>>
From a Townsend Letter paper, given to me by the lady that showed me videos of my own spirochetes:
The signs and symptoms are videly varied, depending where the infection is active. If it attacks the brain, then there is destruction of brain tissue resulting in dementia, and/or bipolar or mani-depressive disorder. Every case of bipolar disorder, which I have evaluated, can be traced to a spirochete infection. Research has shown that this infection destroys subcortical brain tissue that controls affect. This bacterium has shoun up in schizophrenia.
If the spirochetes attack the heart, then the person gets cogestive heart failure because it destroys the heart muscle. If the infection attacks the arteries then the person is likely to get a dissecting aneurysm. This infection frequently attacks the musculo-skelatal system and is a major cause of Rheumatoid Arthritis
and fibromyalgia. There can be collapsing of the spine, resulting in severe pain. These bacteria can attack most any part of the body.>>>
Now that I've scared people, I need to get going for now, but the two messages I've watched Newport try to get across to people here on CZ for a long time now, is not just the mercury/metals with the parasites, but that these type of infections (lyme coinfections especially) are present.
