The spirochetes are divided into three families (Brachyspiraceae, Leptospiraceae, and Spirochaetaceae), all placed within a single order (Spirochaetales). Disease-causing members of this phylum include the following:
Leptospira species, which causes leptospirosis
Borrelia burgdorferi, which causes Lyme disease
Borrelia recurrentis, which causes relapsing fever
Treponema pallidum, which causes syphilis
Treponema pertenue, which causes yaws
Don't bother getting a "Lyme test"- if you want to know if you have spirochetes, go to an Integrative, Biological, Holistic Dentist who has a dark field microscope in their office.
Takes less than 5 minutes to find out through plaque. I can just imagine what people think when they see their own videos of these things. I think it's interesting, but that's me. A CZ friend that I sent this too--immediately went and rinsed his mouth with CS :) and freaked out.
