The North Carolina Lyme Disease Foundation has invited me to come to their Lyme-ravaged state, bringing pertinent guidance on this swiftly spreading infectious illness epidemic. This is a very exciting opportunity for all!
Unfortunately Lyme and its co-infections have slipped under the radar in all of the South. Most doctors are completely unaware that Lyme is active and spreading, misdiagnosing thousands of cases as the flu, lupus, MS, CFS, ALS, fibromyalgia, arthritis, peri-menopause, depression, anxiety, food allergies, and more. They are following outdated CDC and Infectious Disease Society information from the 1980s that labels Lyme Disease as a mere short-term, two week condition.
Clinical evidence has established that this corkscrew bacteria migrates from the bloodstream, to joints and soft tissue, and eventually to the brain and nervous system, creating assorted chronic symptoms and triggering auto-immune style illnesses.
Currently, there are a mere handful of healthcare practitioners recognizing and treating chronic Lyme in North Carolina. Much education needs to be done.
My two talks, in Raleigh and Chapel Hill in April, are open to the public and sponsored by the North Carolina Lyme Foundation. I will present critical information and guidance on signs and symptoms, diagnostic labs, prevention, and treatment. April 7 in Raleigh, April 8 in Chapel Hill. See details below.
Please tell all of your contacts and friends to come and spread the word! This is the first time anyone has come to North Carolina bringing any sort of help or hope. I am honored to be the first “missionary” in, and of course aim to shift the tides of misunderstanding and Lyme denial in the South. Let us envision this trip as the tipping point!
