The Fatal Truth About Lyme Disease: What Everyone Should Know

255396_121731471303041_865189947_nYou have heard, and will hear, it time and time again: “Lyme disease is cured with a few weeks of antibiotics.” If this is the case, why are hundreds of thousands –if not more- suffering for years on end from the disease? According to the CDC, they are not, because chronic Lyme disease does not exist:

“Approximately 10 to 20% of patients treated for Lyme disease with a recommended 2–4 week course of antibiotics will have lingering symptoms of fatigue, pain, or joint and muscle aches. In some cases, these can last for more than 6 months. Although often called “chronic Lyme disease,” this condition is properly known as “Post-treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome. [1]”

For people suffering from Chronic Lyme, this statement is infuriating because they feel they are being told they are crazy; and also because pain, fatigue, and joint/muscle aches are often the least of their worries. Much more serious health complications arise from Lyme, and it is important that the public is aware of these symptoms. When looking at the bigger picture, the infuriating part is just how dangerous this statement is. If left untreated, Lyme disease can and will be fatal. That is the sad and often ignored truth.

 Commercial viability is driving the research agenda in too many cases. Not what’s medically necessary and what’s medically useful.

In 1980, the government started allowing patents on living organisms such as pathogens. Perfect timing for scientists to make a mad dash for parts of newly-discovered Lyme and keep the information locked away to protect future profits.

These so-called experts continue to research Lyme disease with federal funds, then start private firms and obtain patents. They write guidelines for insurance companies and HMOs so that the disease doesn’t exist (yet) or require coverage. Not only do Lyme victims spend hundreds of thousands for medical treatment, but they can’t be covered for Lyme! (more…)
