For those of you who have been watching the new lyme infection numbers from the CDC. Here is some of my views and opinions for what there worth.
I have been watching and listening to the new found truth about the actual lyme and tic borne disease related cases in the USA and around the world. I have come to feel that there has not been anybody in this country struggling to bring this out other than the lyme community itself, and a senator or two. But then again I also have come to the conclusion the numbers are not high enough and we need to keep striving forward for real help with this disease. As a sufferer for many years. I have been reading and listening to how the Government and there scientist are going to come up with a vaccine to combat this dreadful illness. But this has already been tried and proven by the governments own specialists that the vaccine brings severe side affects and it was discontinued. There is a small army of physicians in this country who already know how to handle lyme disease and it's co infections. I am not hearing anything through what I have been hearing that is productive or even addressing the co infection issues.
I am sure while our sciences when allowed by our powers that be will find something down the road. They need to start with the underground lyme treatment system that the CDC and political and Ins. industry machine has forced us lyme sufferers to create. There for this is my thoughts in getting control of this dreadful battle before it brings this country to it's knees, with misdiagnosed ailments from aids to alzheimers and many autoimmune problems such as depression, anxiety, heart issues, Chronic pain syndrome, Fibromiagia, Lower back pain, Brain fog, loss of direction, confusion, and I am also watching obesity and pancreatic failur into Type 2 diabetes plus many other misdiagnosed issues. This country has tied our doctors hands behind their backs and insurance companies have sworn to discontinue doing business with any doctor who diagnoses a lyme sufferer. This is why lyme sufferers must pay out of there pockets for lyme treatment. If we take the time to study the numbers and realize the gravity of this problem, it will get your attention. The following is just an estimation to the up and coming problem and I use the underestimated numbers the CDC gave us recently. This is for early diagnosed lyme sufferers only. First with 300,000 new diagnosed infections/yr x 3 yrs. for a productive recovery = 900,000 +300,000 new cases the third years and 600,000 of the 2yr sufferers. 1.8 million people are infected now as the CDC sets the numbers for. Personally I think it will be much higher. I have way too many friends suffering with auto immune disorders and will walk off the earth if there god doctor directs them to. We need something now. There is to many people getting completely disabled and if we get this under control which should have been addressed many years ago. These tick borne illnesses will not be managed until every doctor in this country spends some time with lyme Literate doctors and heath professionals and Tic borne disease sufferers. The government , CDC, Science community must address this full issue. For many Lyme literate doctors feel it is much easier to tackle the lyme if you get the co infections under control first. I agree with this for I have been doctoring for a number of yrs. and now my wife is also doctoring and her doctor is now my doctor and going for the co infections seems to have validity. I will continue to observe the updates from the three evils of lyme and associated diseases. Those being Political, Insurance, Medical community. If we start to address this issue, you will see the welfare rolls in this country and around the world drop in the next ten years by 30% Plus. If we don't do anything, this is the game changer.
You can find more of my thoughts of this challenge in my web/blog for diagnosing and testing. The non-literate medical community has no idea how to use the testing that is available and refuses to listen to those that do. I will start immediately, reposting my past articles for your interest in tackling this issue.
