Lyme and Hormones
Does anyone understand the effect of Lyme on hormones? Many common side effects of this insidious disease include: hair loss, loss of sex drive, menstrual changes, infertility, thyroid/endocrine problems, and severe depression. I was just wondering then, since most of these symptoms can be attirbuted to hormonal imbalances, just how does this bacteria disrupt the equilibrium of the body? And besides antibiotic treatment, what can be done to restore the body's natural functioning? I seem to suffer so greatly from the hormonal imbalances that I am always wondering, is it my thyroid, my adrenals, my female reproductive cycle, the darn Lyme....or what????
In good health,
Mistakes are the portals of discovery
