Yersiniosis

is an acute and at the same time chronic infectious disease caused by small Gram-negative Yersinia enterocolitica and Y. pseudotuberculosis, belonging to the family Enterobacteriaceae. Y. enterocolitica is the most common cause of inflammation of the small and large intestine (enterocolitis), while infection of Y. pseudotuberculosis most often occurs in the form of mesenteric node inflammation (adenitis mesenterica).

This microorganism is found in the digestive tract of many animal species: mammals (rodents, livestock – especially pigs, dogs, cats, wild animals) and birds.

Often, yersiniosis contamination concerns dairy products (milk, ice cream).

Y. enterocolitica’s ability to grow at 4 ° C means that meat stored in cold stores can be a source of infection.

In the context of Lyme disease, it is a bacterium that produces cross-sectional serological tests. The other way too, that is, if Yersinia comes out in the study, it may be a false result caused by Lyme infection. We check Yersin by determining antibodies IgG, IgA and IgM. A positive IgG test result indicates an earlier infection. If IgG and IgM are positive, this means that the infection lasts 1-3 months. If IgG and IgA are positive, but IgM is negative, we know that the infection lasts longer than three months. If all IgG, IgA and IgM are present, we know that it is an active infection lasting a minimum of 3 months. Therefore, IgM is not always required. We can confirm Yersina with a stool test. In addition, if we are infected with an active virus, it can also produce false positive results.

We treat the acute form with antibiotics, but the cunning bacterium often activates and takes on a chronic form, which is best treated with herbs

such as: Berberine, black walnut, caprylic acid, oregano oil, uvaursi, grapefruit seed extract, silver …

There are many studies that confirm the relationship between Yersinia enterocolitica and Hashimoto’s disease. Bacteria attack the intestines causing diarrhea (usually watery or bloody), vomiting, abdominal pain and fever. Yersinia can cause right-sided abdominal pain, which can be confused with appendicitis. Skin rash, or actually erythema nodosum (red or purple lesions), occurs only in some patientsand occurs from 2-20 days after the infection, mainly on the legs and torso of women, but usually disappears within a month. Yersinia often causes inflammation by activating other bacteria while hiding in places that are not accessible to the immune system. Chronic Yersiniosis causes joint pain and then reactive arthritis may develop, which the patient ascribes to Lyme disease. Yersiniosis can be life threatening when it spreads in the liver, spleen and in the bloodstream due to the weakened immune system that is caused by other infections.
