Do you suffer with chronic illness and malaise? Are you unsure what the cause of your symptoms is? Are you desperate to get your health back on track? Complete our Rickettsia questionnaire and find out today if it's this Lyme Disease co-infection causing/contributing to your symptoms.

What Is Rickettsia?

Rickettsia is a gram-negative nonspore-forming, pleomorphic bacteria that causes Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Rickettsia is most commonly spread via tick bite, however, may be spread by mosquito bite or blood transfusion. If rickettsia goes undiagnosed for a long period of time, it can lead to severe degeneration and multi-systemic symptoms such as chronic joint pain and muscle aches.
