Lyme Disease: A Hidden Epidemic?


| July/August 2001


Lyme disease may be more common than we thought, suggests an article in Alternative Medicine (May 2001), and it may be a cause or contributing factor in chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and other debilitating conditions. Some doctors and health researchers believe Lyme is spread by fleas, mosquitoes, mites, and human-to-human contact—as well as deer ticks—and that many sufferers never exhibit the bull’s-eye rash associated with the disease. Antibiotic treatment—far more extensive than prescribed for most infectious conditions—is still the only known cure.

Lyme Disease is truly awful. It effects athletes, children, seniors and animals can all have it. Most people aren't as lucky as this girl who beat it (US Track and Field athlete): http://www.beatlymedisease.com because most people don't even know they have Lyme disease...it's not usually diagnosed well. You have to go renegade to beat it because doctors can't cure you of it!
