Tick-borne illness are health concerns that parasite infections can cause.

Ticks transmit infectious diseases including Lyme, Rickettsia, Babesia and Colorado Tick Fever (CTF). Symptoms include fatigue, fever and headache, so even though you may think you have the flu, seek a clear diagnosis if you’ve recently been exposed to ticks.

For example, Babesia infections can resemble a self-limiting flu, but may worsen to hemolytic anemia if your immune system is low. Ticks can also cause alpha-gal syndrome (a food allergy in which you react to red meat and other consumable products from mammals) and paralysis, which are not infectious and are generally diagnosed by exclusion of microbial illness.

Testing and treating for chronic parasite infections is a must for reaching optimal health. Luckily, a naturopathic doctor in Toronto, ON, can create a comprehensive treatment plan to assist you with the healing process.
