Treatment For Babesia Infection

A Co-infection of Lyme Diseaseme Disease

What is Babesia

Babesia is a tiny parasite that infects your red blood cells. A bite from an infected tick usually transmits Babesia infection. These protozoa can live in and destroy red blood cells, leading to severe tissue and organ damage. Infection with Babesia is called babesiosis. 

How Is Babesia Different From Lyme Disease? 

Babesia is often difficult to diagnose due to its ability to evade traditional tests. But babesiosis usually occurs at the same time as Lyme disease. The tick that carries the Lyme bacteria can also be infected with the Babesia parasite. Unlike Lyme disease, which is caused by bacteria, Babesia infection is caused by a protozoan, meaning it must be treated specifically. 

Symptoms of Babesia

Babesia’s symptoms are similar to those of Lyme disease, such as fatigue, joint pain, and poor appetite. Babesia can also cause fever, sweating, and nausea.

The most common symptoms of Babesia are: 

  • Anemia
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Sweats
  • Headaches
  • Body aches
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Jaundice

Although some people may not show symptoms after becoming infected with Babesia, those who do usually experience these symptoms within one to four weeks of being bitten by an infected tick. 

It is important to note that  Babesia can potentially cause long-term health problems such as hemolytic anemia or endocarditis. Other complications may include renal failure or neurological issues such as confusion and depression. If left untreated, Babesia can become life-threatening. 

Treatment for Babesia at Sanoviv 

Traditional medical facilities treat Babesia with antibiotics combined and antimalarial medications. Neither of which addresses the root of the problem. At Sanoviv, we take a comprehensive approach to Babesia therapy

Our unique approach treats Lyme disease and its co-infections by combining proprietary protocols with whole-body hyperthermia therapy to achieve maximum results. It’s a safe yet effective method of boosting the immune system and fighting off the bacteria that cause Lyme disease and the parasites that cause Babesia

During the process, guests are sedated to rest throughout the several-hour-long treatment comfortably. The core body temperature is raised to 42 degrees Celsius. This precise heat level is necessary to eliminate infection, break down biofilms, stimulate detoxification pathways, and strengthen immune responses. Complementary therapies are combined with hyperthermia to address Babesia specifically. 

Guests experience two intensive sessions during their two-week stay with us to fully benefit from our effective combination of treatments. This comprehensive inpatient treatment plan is specially targeted to address Lyme and Babesia at their source and incorporates various modalities into the protocol for an optimal outcome. Our program has demonstrated successful results, particularly when treating Borrelia and its co-infections such as Babesia.  

How to Prevent Babesia Infection

Ticks carrying Babesia parasites are more likely to attach themselves to exposed skin. To prevent Babesia infection, it is important to use insect repellent outdoors, as the parasites are carried in ticks. Additionally, wearing long sleeves and pants while outdoors can help protect you from tick bites. If possible, tuck your shirt into your pants and your pants into your socks for extra protection. After spending time outdoors, inspect yourself for ticks.
