Before my Lyme diagnosis in April, my view of this disease was myopic. I thought it was a short-term disease that was easily ‘fixed’ & it was only found in the U.S. Just a little bit of research opened my eyes to the devastation Lyme can cause & the disservice that Lyme patients endure from trusted members of the medical community & the government. There were recent protests in Australia & France seeking recognition & better care in their medical systems. Lyme Disease is everywhere, not just the U.S.
Below is an excerpt from the Lyme Disease film ‘Under Our Skin’ that explains why greed has overridden the necessary research & finding the best treatments for patients with Chronic Lyme Disease. Some of the patent holders (described in this video) are also the doctors who created the guidelines that deny the existence of Chronic Lyme Disease. Most of these doctors are also closely aligned to the major insurance companies.
