Borrelia is to Cyst as turtle is to shell
Borrelia Burgdorferi is capable of transforming into a cyst when it feels its life is threatened. While in cyst form, Borrelia obtains immunity from antibiotics, its host's immune system, and temperature and PH variations. It can also lower its metabolic rate while in cyst form in order to ward off starvation. When conditions within its host become more favorable, it will transform back into its spirochetal form. A spirochete can also have the added protection of a biofilm if it morphs into a cyst while inside a biofilm.
Don't confuse the cyst form of Borrelia for skin cysts that are visible to the naked eye. Borrelia Burgdorferi in cyst form exists on a microscopic level and can only be seen with a microscope.
Antibiotics alone will not eradicate Borrelia as they must work in conjunction with biofilm dissolvers and cyst busters. Cyst busters are used to complete what antibiotics aren't capable of and that is destroying Borrelia in cyst form.

It contains bioactive flavonoids such as resveratrol which give grapefruit seed extract its sought after anti-fungal properties. Grapefruit Seed Extract is probably the most commonly used holistic cyst buster.
Conventional Cyst Busters
- Flagyl - Flagyl is an antibiotic, but it is most commonly used for busting Borrelia in cyst form. Flagyl should never be taken with alcohol.
- Tindamax - Tindamax is an antibiotic with not only the ability of busting Borrelia in cyst form, but has also been said to dissolve the biofilm that spirochetes hide in.
