Lyme disease: meaning, symptoms, causes and prevention

Have you heard of lyme disease? Even if you haven't heard about the mental illness, the number of people contracting Lyme disease has quadrupled in the last 12 years to the extent that one famous sufferer describe it as "the most significant threat to human health" of our time.
According to figures from the The Daily Telegraph, more than 1,100 people were diagnosed with the disease in 2013.
The bacterial infection is carried by ticks often found in woodlands. Someone bitten by the tick will be infected and, if left untreated, will cause neurological damage and debilitating fatigue in humans.

Lyme disease is caused by the borrelia burgdorferi bacteria – AKA Lyme disease.
Billionaire Phones 4U founder John Caudwell, his ex-wife and three children have all tested positive. Other popular figures/celebrities that have also tested positive with lyme disease were Avril Lavigne, Selena Gomez and Bella Hadid.
The disease is so devastating that John Caudwell believes lyme disease is really the most under-researched and most significant threat to human health.
He gave an example of his son who started with anxiety 10 years ago and now the anxiety became so severe that he couldn't leave the house.
He said despite having endless doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, the condition of the boy continued.
He said the most confident lad ever during his first 10 years of life turned to the most fearful lad.

People infected with lyme bacteria will got taken out completely by mental illness and eventually the
psychological symptoms will turn
to physical ones.
Potential causes for the increased infection rate are the greater number of housing developments in rural areas, warmer winters that prolong the life of ticks and immigration from central and eastern Europe,
where Lyme disease is more common.
How can someone protect him or herself from lyme disease?
One recommended way of reducing the chance of contracting lyme disease is to cover up your body when visiting wooded areas.
