United Kingdom Gives Us Glimpse Into Lyme Disease on Lyme Light Radio

As many of us here in the USA realize, Lyme disease is the 21st century illness, exploding in proportions akin to HIV, polio and tuberculosis in the prior century. Because this bacterial infection has ‘stages’ (a cousin to syphilis) the initial initial acute outbreak of approximately 2 week duration resembles the flu and millions of people worldwide never get diagnosed and treated properly with appropriate antibiotics, unless they fortuitously have a ‘Lyme literate’ physician, or ever go to a doctor at all. Consequences usually follow as a quieter post-acute ‘waiting’ phase where symptoms mollify to a degree, with perhaps a lingering headache or fatigue or join pain. Then, mysteriously, weeks, months, years later a blown nightmare of symptoms and illness blossoms – Bells Palsy, migraines, fibromyalgia, CFS, MS, ME, RA and more.

No one connects any of this to that prior ‘flu’ and maybe a bacterial cause? Lyme disease is transmitted commonly by the lowly tick and carried around the globe by migrating birds. It is everywhere, on every continent and sadly the majority of countries, their infectious disease councils, national health statistic boards and even regular physicians and citizens do not have a clue of how present  this serious illness is, nor the frightening rate of infection matters are exploding at. The United Kingdom for years has said ‘we don’t have ticks here’. Their board of health has denied existence of Lyme disease and Dr. has been a thorn in the side of Lyme support groups trying to make headway with gathering cases, reporting infections and acknowledging Lyme in the UK!

‘Lyme Light Radio’ eagerly welcomes two vocal and loud working Lyme activists from UK with us live on air Wednesday, April 2nd, 1 pm PT/4pm ET/8pm GMT. This is fabulous to bring a global Lyme disease dialogue to out audience and the world. I am honored to be expanding world awareness on this exploding health care crisis. Please join me with Jenny O’Dea of Tick Talk Ireland and Nicola Seal of the Lyme Disease UK at LymeLightRadio.com, TheDrPatShow.com, TransformationTalkRadio.com, and Talk Radio WLBQ 1230 AM in Southern New England.

Neurological Lyme Borreliosis with Dr. Alan MacDonald

It is with great honor I interview the preeminent Lyme disease research pathologist, Dr. Alan MacDonald, on Lyme Light Radio with Katina Wednesday, March 19, 2014, 4 pm ET/1 pm PT.

Many people recall Dr. MacDonald and his historic work linking Lyme disease to Alzheimer while at South Hampton Hospital Labs, NY from the documentary film “Under Our Skin”. Sadly, the US Government, nor the CDC would fund further studies Dr. MacDonald aimed to do, proving the neurological connection advanced Lyme disease infections can create in humans. MS, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s type illnesses all are potential outcomes of a bacterial infection caused by borrelia burgdorferi and transmitted by the common tick.

Dr. MacDonald has much to share on air with us. This is an interview I have been so excited for that I feel like a kid before Christmas, as I know this brilliant man’s ongoing current research  could change the face of out future regarding chronic neurological illnesses.

Though the CDC in 2013 upped their annual estimated new acute Lyme disease infection count from the long-standing 30,000 per year to a ten time higher figure of 300,000, we can’t help but wonder where these other several hundred thousands of cases each year have been?

What symptoms do these people exhibit and yet have not been diagnosed as Lyme disease? Are they dementia cases? Fibromyalgia? ALS? RA? MS? CFS?

Dr. MacDonald has proven still births and stroke to be Lyme induced. He cited an astonishing fact to me. Germany has a public health care system with meticulous diagnostic and treatment record keeping. They acknowledge Lyme disease diagnosis by clinical symptoms and openly treat it. In 2012 they reported 750,000 new Lyme disease cases. In 2013, they recorded 1,000,000 new Lyme disease cases! This country is a 1/3 the size of the USA. Our country is in denial, using an outdated lab test, screening for only 1 strain out of 300+ for Borrelia burgdorferi, and will adhere to a standard diagnosis from the IDSA and CDC of merely 4 qualifying symptoms for Lyme disease diagnostics:

  • Bulls-eye rash
  • Joint pain – knee
  • Meningitis migraine
  • Bell’s Palsy – facial droop

The former clinical diagnostic evaluation of pre-1980’s is no longer ‘permitted’ and physicians must rely on confirmation from a blood test, or they tell a patient ‘you do not have Lyme disease’, though a patient presents with couples of symptoms; joint pain and headaches, heart palpitations and knee pain, facial droop and weakness in extremities. The list goes on.

Please join us on TheDrPatShow.com, LymeLightRadio.com and TransformationTalkRadio.com for a cutting edge show!! This wil be one to listen to repeatedly.

ImageAlan MacDonald, MD, is a pathologist with a brilliant career spanning over 30 yrs. In the late 1970’s, he worked diligently to create tests to detect the newly discovered pathogen Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb). Dr. MacDonald was among the first to study Bb in humans. He was the first to publish evidence of Bb cystic forms, granular forms and cell wall deficient forms.

In 2008, Dr. Eva Sapi and Dr. Alan MacDonald published a groundbreaking paper concerning Bb forming protective biofilms, similar to other bacterial pathogens, providing evidence Bb infections are harder to eradicate and more difficult to treat. This information can be seen in the movie Under Our Skin.

Through his research, and with the help of other leading researchers in the fields of molecular and cellular biology, Dr. MacDonald is continuing to pioneer a broader understanding about the behavior of Borrelia burgdorferi as an infectious pathogen.

Thank you Dr. MacDonald for your commitment to the Lyme disease crisis, for your tireless research and for joining me on “Lyme Light Radio”.

Logan McCulloch’s Journey on the Appalachian Trail for Lyme Disease

Many of us are outdoor enthusiasts, campers, hikers, and spiritually connected to nature. The beauty, power and joy of living close to the wilderness lifts and inspires us.

I am a landscape painter. The magic of nature moves me deeply. My memoir “Out of the Woods” depicts my close kinship and energetic support from the snowy winter cathedrals and the alpine vistas. I became horrifically ill with advanced misdiagnosed Lyme disease after 42 years of living with sheer trust and abandonment amid forests and babbling streams. Many of us became infected with Lyme during our time outdoors.

Awareness, prevention, early diagnostics are key issues all of us need to be alert to in today’s Lyme disease epidemic explosion, as ticks are multiplying at rates beyond historically normal (and living in habitats formerly devoid). Lyme disease is not regional , but all throughout North America and the globe.

A very brave, spirited man named Logan McCulloch has done something remarkable. After suffering with a dire case of chronic Lyme disease himself, he has resisted the fear so many feel and has been hiking the entire length of the East Coast on the Appalachian Trail on a mission to educate about Lyme disease!

Hiking the miles of the AT is a feat in itself, and Logan has been working en route. Please join us on Lyme Light Radio, Wednesday February 26, 1pm PT/4pm ET as Logan McCulloch brings us his story, his journey, his discoveries and commitment to the Lyme disease equation.

This should be a very interesting interview, as we get a ground level view of just what the Lyme and tick situation is deep in the forests of the East Coast.

ImageIn many ways Logan McCulloch feels as if he’s prepared for this project for most of his adult life. He is 52 years old and a native of Louisville, Kentucky. For the past 20+ years he has been a non-profit executive with expertise in fundraising, marketing, public relations and public speaking. His current position is Chief Development Officer for the Kentuckian Region of the American Red Cross. In 2003 he hiked 215 miles of The AT and The Long Trail in Vermont over a two week period. During that trek he adopted the trail name (pseudonyms are common among long distance hikers) “Unitic” which now seems somewhat prophetic given the nature and goals of this adventure.

Being an experienced backpacker he thought he was well informed about the facts of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. He was wrong. As he began to personally experience the frustration and suffering caused by the misinformation and ignorance surrounding Lyme disease within his region and across the country, he chose to become active in the public awareness and advocacy efforts of the Kentuckian Lyme Disease Support Group. Since the spring of 2012 he has utilized the skills and relationships developed over his professional career and worked with a core group of veteran “Lyme Warriors” to succeed in:

•Conversing and sharing information with the leading tick entomologist at the University of Kentucky, and the state veterinarian and Assistant Director of the Kentucky Division of Epidemiology (February).

•Having an article published describing my story in the Louisville Courier-Journal (April).

•Hosting a free community screening of the documentary Under Our Skin (May).

•Conducting personal meetings with the Executive Director of the Greater Louisville Medical Society (GLMS), as well as the Director and staff of the Kentucky Division of Epidemiology (June).

•Getting a front-page above the fold article published entitled “Lyme Disease is Under Reported in Kentucky,” that profiled one of the members of our group and included supportive quotes from key staff at the Kentucky Division of Epidemiology, the University of Kentucky Department of Entomology and the GLMS.

This is a book give away show, too! The first 5 callers to WBLQ at 800-930-2819 will receive autographed copies of my award winning book “Out of the Woods”

Logan and I share a deep love of nature. With his journey into the woods I feel it is fitting I share “Out of the Woods” with our audience, for this is a book or true inspiration and recovery tools.

Thank you Logan and to my team at Transformation Talk Radio, the Dr. Pat Show and WBLQ 1230 AM. Plus my trusty assistants Charlotte Ruth, Jake Carr, Luba Williams (FB posters) and Chloe Rapp – you all help make Lyme Light Radio the hit show we hoped it would be! This is a very rewarding and enriching experience.

Tune in!

Dr. Wayne Anderson Discusses Genome Flaws and Links to Chronic Lyme Disease

Some people get infected with the Lyme disease bacteria (borrelia burgdorferi), take the prescribed antibiotics and pull out of the flu like pains and malaise readily. Certain folks get infected and their ultra capable immune function and genetic ancestry enables them to fend off the infection all together. Life goes on smoothly.

Then, there are the estimated 4,000,000 plus people in the USA, and millions more worldwide, whom are struggling with devastating chronic forms of illness created by Lyme disease. Their lives are compromised, fortunes are spent on treatments, many are misdiagnosed with auto-immune illnesses and Lyme or co-infections are the true culprits.

Why do some of us get destroyed by the bacterial infection and others not? Susceptibility is a factor in all illnesses – from a tendency to strep throat, pneumonia, MS or advanced neurological Lyme disease.

Dr. Wayne Anderson of the prominent Gordon Medical Associates team joins me on Wednesday, February 19 1pm PT/4pm ET on Lyme Light Radio. We will explore the fascinating studies of Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker and the ‘genome flaws’ or genetic predisposition some of us were born with that set us up for Lyme disease to create maiming afflictions and ‘trigger’ other disorders.

This is a show you do NOT want to miss! When I heard Dr. Anderson present this information at ILADS Boston 2012, a major ah-ha moment clicked for me! This is ground breaking work and the reason why I was able to heal 100% from advanced neurological Lyme disease, by addressing these issues. It works!

ImageWith a background in education, Dr. Wayne Anderson understands the role of teaching in medical care. Working with grade school students he saw that diet and environment impacted student’s mood and behavior. This sent him back to school for training as a Naturopathic doctor. A growing focus on natural healing approaches in clinical practice in Oregon caused him to broaden his assessment and treatment skills and he earned the designation of Physician Assistant.

For two decades, Dr. Anderson practiced in a busy community-based family medical center, treating individuals and families from birth to old age. His emphasis on patients experiencing chronic illness grew. As he became aware of the prevalence of chronic Lyme disease and related conditions he realized the important part they play in chronic illness.

In 2002, Dr. Anderson left family practice to work with Eric Gordon MD. Now he has a practice with a concentration on chronic illness, using tools and experience from both conventional and integrative medicine. At GMA, with a growing focus on Lyme disease, he has developed a deeper understanding of chronic illness, its treatment, and the frontiers still available as possible solutions.

A curious and dedicated clinician, Dr. Anderson is committed to the ongoing process of learning and teaching. In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Anderson maintained his initial focus on teaching. For over 20 years he taught medical students at Touro Osteopathic Medical School, and supervised residents from Sutter Hospital and interns from the Physician Assistant programs in the clinic setting.  He is also a popular speaker on the topics of Lyme disease and neurotoxin illness.

For more than 25 years, Dr. Anderson has known that his patients are partners in the process of learning about and treating their illness, whether they choose conventional or alternative medicine or a combination of both. He listens to understand each patient’s strengths and challenges and improve his effective interaction with them. He sees every person as complex, integrated, and unique, and believes that treatment should optimize health and well-being.

An avid film historian and true music enthusiast, Wayne spends his spare time watching movies, old and new, and listening to a wide selection of music.

Thank you Dr. Anderson – your work with tick borne diseases and ability to educate are brilliant.
