Importance of The Virginia Lyme Disease Bill on Lyme Light Radio

Hundreds of thousands of people are infected with the Lyme disease bacteria and other tick borne illnesses annually. Yet, only 10% are accurately diagnosed, due to faulty test results of the ELISA test the majority of physicians use. Sadly, these cases are misdiagnosed as assorted auto-immune illnesses (CFS, MS, RA, Lupus, more), neurological issues (ALS, tourettes, bi polar) or brushed off as inconsequential or perhaps a virus, or “you’re just run down”. 

Our population is suffering! Doctors have been under-educated about Lyme disease for decades, believing it to be a short term, acute illness of regional isolation. Clinical findings and decades of a now chronically ill America, illuminate that this shape-shifting spirochete bacteria (cousin to syphilis) moves from bloodstream to tissues, joints, organs and the brain, creating a panoply of symptoms, depletions and often complete life destruction. (I was such a case – bedridden, broke, despairing with 3 false ELISA negatives in 5 years).

Meet Susan Green and Monte Skall, 2 women who have made history in the Lyme disease story. These powerful visionaries, hard workers and compassionate souls fought fiercely in the state of Virginia to get a bill passed which essentially states – “a negative Lyme test result does not rule out that you are infected”, by-passing proper treatment and diagnosis.

Pamela Weintraub, author of “Cure Unknown” on Lyme Light Radio, 9/11

Mark your calendars now! Wednesday, September 11, 4pm EST / 1pm PSTthe award winning author and esteemed medical journalist, Pamela Weintraub, shared her second version of “Cure Unknown” with us on ‘Lyme Light Radio with Katina’. 

This is the most revered book on Lyme disease in print. Pamela revealed the mismanagement and corruption surrounding Lyme disease that has obfuscated proper diagnosis and treatment of this serious, life altering infectious illness. Decades of medical, insurance industry and political ‘game-playing’ have colluded to deny the illness and millions of lives have been jeopardized.

Pamela pulls no punches. Like a master sleuth, she unravels the ugly truth that Lyme disease has been ‘ignored’ by the very institutions we were taught to trust. 

I cannot wait to discover what Pamela has to share with us on-air 9/11 regarding her 5 year, follow-up with Cure Unknown II. Her news should be enormously enlightening!

It is my true privilege to interview Pamela Weintraub. She is one of my life heros, having recovered from Lyme disease herself and out there fighting for change.

Tune in to WBLQ 1230AM in southern New England, Long Island, NY 4pm EST and streaming live on TransformationTalkRadio.com and TheDrPatShow.com. You can listen to us anywhere in the world! This show is a MUST for anyone interested in the real story behind Lyme disease!

Teenagers & Lyme Disease Podcast with Dr. Lantsman, Lyme Light Radio

Teenagers get Lyme disease! No age group is exempt from this bacterial infection, spread by the common tick. Incidence of cases contracted is soaring. I learned from researcher, Dr. John Aucott, that the 300,00 annual cases contracted in the USA surpasses the peak of the AIDS epidemic, which teetered at 104,000 cases annually in the late 1980’s. Everyone needs to be tick ALERT nationwide.

On September 4, “Lyme Light Radio with Katina” featured the subject of “Teenagers and Lyme Disease”. This is a powerful show. Please listen to the podcast HERE.

The esteemed Dr. Katherine Lantsman, mypathmedical.com, an Integrative Medicine physician who specializes in tick borne illness embodies my philosophy of success in overcoming Lyme disease. She has a strong handle on the complexity of symptoms this illness induces.

Killing the microbial infections (often more than just borrelia burgdorferi exists inside your body), defining the imbalances and depletions induced from a rampant infection, addressing food, allergies, fungal overgrowth, and tending to emotional and spiritual aspects of chronic illness, she integrates with aplomb. 

Please pay close attention to the case she shares of 18 year old “Roger”! It is fascinating to witness how Dr. Lantsman isolated the severe endocrine imbalances he was afflicted with, prominent endocrinologists said he was “fine” and lyme specialists claimed none of the known antibiotic therapies were effective with Roger. Defeated, seriously ill, diabetic, isolated, 30 lbs overweight and sinking at age 19, Roger has made enormous recovery strides in less than one year, via Dr. Lantsman’s Integrative Medicine skills. Her discussion with me is an eye-opener!

Teens often manifest vivid emotional, mental and neurological symptoms from ‘hidden’ Lyme disease infections. Since their nervous systems are still developing and hormones are being rapidly produced, if a bacterial infection sets up residence in their body,  ‘odd’ symptoms surface readily, while their very active immune response may keep physical symptoms at a milder display than adults. Each case is unique though, and a broad spectrum of symptoms may erupt.

Anxiety, insomnia, OCD, ADD/ADHD, headaches, depression, stammering, malaise, poor concentration, angry rages, panic, tics, tourette syndrome, are common manifestations in the nervous system teens easily display with Lyme, and are the majority of the time misdiagnosed, medicated and left malingering.

Body aches, sore joints or ribs, exhaustion, digestive disorders and brain fog are often dismissed as ‘teenage angst’. Lyme beware! The microbes are messing around with our treasured offspring’s chemistry. They are sick and typically misdiagnosed. I have met too many 20 year olds whom were put on adderall for years, complaining with a ‘soccer’ knee injury, and too tired to do homework. 

Get them properly test at Igenex or Clongen labs.

Chloe Rapp of Massachusetts bravely shared her ‘lost’ 9 years as a teen, near death’s door, despite aggressive Lyme antibiotic therapy, with us on-air. Thank you, articulate, empathic, intelligent Chloe for holding on to your beautiful spirit during these treacherous times in your life. I applause your tenacity and inner belief that you WILL recover fully, despite the damage Lyme disease and excessive antibiotics induced. Chloe’s message, conveyed in her interview, to promote support in school systems for teens dealing with Lyme disease can not be SHOUTED loud enough! I will help you get this platform going. Teens with Lyme need HELP!

It is my privilege to host “Lyme Light Radio”! Each week we look at Lyme disease and tick borne illness with a different lens. THere is so much we can learn from one another, as well as help promote awareness and dialogue. As always, I thank the powers that be, which helped place me in this role. Please share today’s link with your friends and group.

Dr. Lantsman and Chloe Rapp were profoundly honest and inspirational guests. Thank you for joining us and caring enough to help others. Also, thank you to our sponsor Advanced Cell Training, at AdvancedCellTraining.com, for helping Lyme Light Radio shine.
