What About Our Children? Yes, it’s true. Lyme can be the cause of these issues in children.
Again, I can’t say it enough, you do not have to be bitten by a tick. Ironically, most Lyme is congenital and passed from birth parents.
Some parents show few symptoms. Also, some parents may not show any symptoms. However, that will not keep it from being passed onto your child. Sadly, this can become a possible issue.
Lyme and Your Child. I have several children and when I look at this list, I gasp. One child struggled with autistic tendencies. Another one with ADD, ADHD, ODD, and OCD. Then add another kid with vision issues and anxiety. Learning disabilities galore. Geez. What if it is all related to chronic, genetic, or straight from the tick, himself, Lyme Disease.
Is this the answer to all of our issues? Are we overmedicating our children and ourselves? Here I am. Just thinking out loud wondering where I go from here with this information. I believe I will be doing a bit more research and looking into getting everyone tested through Igenix! Better safe than sorry, right?
