I have an interesting clinical case for you today. Another Lyme case. Lyme is the disease Australian authorities do not believe exists, and will persecute doctors for treating it. Meanwhile our CDC says it’s a horrific epidemic, warns against new ticks, and says at least 300,000 Americans are coming down with the disease every year. This is scientific medicine! One country doesn’t want to pay for it and denies its existence. The other does recognize its presence. I lived this lunacy. In Alaska, the local medical societies VOTED that chelation for metals was fraudulent and mercury amalgam removal from teeth was fraud. Imagine if their efforts to purge me was successful and just 15 years later they were PROVEN wrong in the medical literature (which was already available at the time, if they were not so dogmatically wedded to Pharma). In our country Lyme is a major problem. MAJOR. It is difficult to treat. It is difficult to diagnose. A negative lab test means nothing. Most treatments are antibiotics. These carry a very significant risk of temporarily or permanently messing you up. And, from the cases I’ve seen, most will relapse. Lyme disease, a bane of conventional medicine, is now our favorite problem to treat as patients go from despair to hope. I could not bring myself to video this patient last week as she looked beyond depressed and fatigued. When I saw her being treated today, there was a smile on her face from ear to ear and a bright facial glow.
