Tick Borne Disease Alliance, based in NYC, and Martha’s Vineyard Lyme Center host a chock full day of Lyme disease educational, awareness and fundraising events. This is a significant day for the future health of our nation, as Lyme disease has now surpassed HIV as the fastest spreading infectious illness in the USA.
The CDC admits that the 30,000 cases of Lyme disease reported to them annually, are likely a mere 10% of the true number of cases actually contracted. When not treated promptly with pharmaceuticals in the early weeks of an infection, this shape shifting bacterial infection can morph into auto-immune style symptoms and illnesses. Millions of people in the USA are infected with Lyme disease and neither they nor the doctors are aware of this, as the standard lab test most turn to (if they even rcognize the Lyme suspicion at all) have a 70% false negative error rate. This means many of afflicted folks could ‘get well’, IF they got a proper Lyme diagnosis and treatments, instead of coping and deteriorating with Lupus, MS, ALS, fibromyalgia, CFS, RA, migraines, neuropathy and more.
TBDA, Lyme Light Radio, ILADS and more aim to end the denial, confusion and suffering surrounding the Lyme disease situation with their awarness, educational and fundraising efforts. Please join us on Martha’s Vineyard for this stupendous day, August 18. Or, tune in on-line to TheDrPatShow.com and listen in.
