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.
