Dr. Nicole Baumgarth was recently quoted in a recent article in Women’s Health magazine on “The Untold Dangers of Lyme Disease”.  She described what happened once the Lyme bacteria enters the body . She said “it does something weird: It heads straight for your lymph nodes, says Nicole Baumgarth, Ph.D., of the University of California at Davis. Why Lyme marches toward your body’s front line of defense is unclear, but “once there, it seems to tamper with the immune system so that an effective response can’t be mounted,” says Baumgarth. And the longer the bacteria runs rampant, the more likely it is to move into your bones, joints, heart, or brain, where it can cause some serious damage.”
