New Podcast: Exploring co-infections, Bartonella, and mental health effects of Lyme disease

“Sarah speaks with Dr. Thomas Moorcroft, a physician from Connecticut who specializes in Lyme disease and Lyme-related infections. He explains what co-infections are and differentiates between infections that are contracted from a tick bite, and concurrent infections that people with Lyme disease may experience. During the 2020 International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) conference, he presented several cases of known tick bites in which individuals tested positive for 3-5 different pathogens.”

“Dr. Moorcroft talks about Bartonella, a co-infection of Lyme disease that can be transmitted not only from ticks, but also from fleas, lice and bites or scratches from cats – hence its other name “Cat scratch disease”. ”
