Auto immune disorders have significantly risen in frequency over the past three decades. Some speculate that diagnosis for lupus, fibromyalgia, ME, CFS, rheumatoid arthritis, MS and more has improved versus that of generations in the past. Yet, others sense something else entirely could be at play here- Lyme disease, the stealthy infectious illness transmitted by ticks.
Please read this article I wrote for a wonderful website, which offers support and guidance for those struggling with chronic illness. a-spiritual-journey-of-healing.com is hosted by Katherine T. Owens, a remarkable woman who has overcome being bedridden to ME for 14 years!
I am honored to open a window into unraveling a piece of the confusion and fury related to the discomforts, depression, exhaustion, and life catastrophe of auto immune diseases which could be linked to Lyme disease. More detailed current testing is discovering the lyme disease organisms present in many more cases of CFS, alzheimers, MS, etc than ever perceived before. In the long run this could be a very good thing! Lyme disease organisms could potentially be the ‘lock and key’ item to many of the debilitating degenerative, auto immune diseases of our time. In turn, we could find ‘cures’ as the Lyme bacteria can be treated. Ultimately, annual testing for Lyme disease organisms could be part of our annual physicals, hence nipping an auto immune illness before it has a chance to bloom!
I would like to think we could be at a turning point in the next 5 years, enabling the medical healing arts and sciences to find an end to too many decades of suffering!
Thank you Katherine for giving me and OUT OF THE WOODS, HEALING LYME DISEASE, BODY, MIND & SPIRIT, a special spot on your site!
