Lyme Disease - A Health Epidemic That's Going Largely Unnoticed

AOL News


We're in the midst of a terrifying epidemic, although you wouldn't know it to talk to most doctors and health specialists.

The disease is growing at a rate faster than AIDS. From 2006 to 2008 alone, the number of cases jumped a whopping 77 percent. In 2008 alone, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention listed 28,921 "confirmed" and 6,277 "probable" cases of the disease, but there could be as many as 420,000 because of underreporting.

Prominent victims include Parker Posey, Richard Gere, President George W. Bush, Alice Walker and Christie Brinkley.

If any other disease had stricken so many people, the medical community would be scurrying for knowledge, scrambling for cures or rushing to warn patients (think swine flu).

But that's not the case with Lyme disease -- a disease carried by ticks.

Instead, ill-informed doctors are often flummoxed when patients complain of fatigue, headaches, fever or chills, muscle or joint pain, mental confusion, swollen lymph nodes and neurological symptoms. It's an appalling display of indifference.

As Lyme Disease Awareness Month comes to a close and Memorial Day travelers flock to grassy, tick-infested holiday spots across America, vacationers and physicians alike need to be on the alert for freckle-sized menaces that are responsible for the fastest-growing, most misdiagnosed infectious disease in the country. The CDC has a map that shows where the ticks are most prevalent.

For my part, I was lucky because my smart nutritionist friend, JJ Virgin, immediately grew suspicious when, almost overnight, I became an exhausted, headache-ridden, nightmare-plagued, memory-challenged zombie suffering from vertigo, sleeping problems, swollen glands, achy eyes, sensitivity to light and noise, fever, chills and a sore neck.

She insisted I get tested for Lyme disease the next day.

When I tested positive for Lyme disease and babesiosis (a malaria-like co-infection also spread by ticks), I began to research my condition, reading books such as "Cure Unknown: Inside the Lyme Epidemic" by science journalist Pamela Weintraub, watching the poignant documentary "Under Our Skin: The Untold Story of Lyme Disease" and interviewing experts on my radio show.

Unfortunately, many victims of this poppy-seed-sized predator spend months or years without effective treatment, because perplexed doctors wrongly diagnose chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, lupus, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, arthritis or psychiatric disorders. It took "The Joy Luck Club" author Amy Tan many years, numerous doctors and her own sleuthing before she was diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease.

We nature lovers need to be vigilant whenever we bike or hike near fields, wooded areas or trails. (For instance, I always wear white socks; don caps to cover my thick, curly hair; never sit on grass anymore; and wash my workout clothes after coming home.)

Each of us needs to inspect our bodies for tiny, black intruders and tweeze them out before they have time to infect us with any number of diseases.

To reduce the ick factor, we can give this health-wise precaution a romantic twist, as Brad Paisley humorously suggests in his song "Ticks": "I'd like to walk you through a field of wildflowers, and I'd like to check you for ticks."

But more important is the need for public health community to treat this disease like the epidemic it is, and start putting real resources into educating the public and the medical profession about how to identify it, treat it, and prevent it.

just to share... i got lymes the very same week as daryl hall (rock star) and a college football star did!

i absolutely do not regret the experience of hand feeding and petting two deers... although i am not certain i got it from them for the friend i was staying with had many cats and dogs and i did see ticks in her house. yes, dogs and cats and carry lyme infested ticks too.

i got all the syptoms minus the target rash... my friend found the tick on my back. i went to emergancy and the doctor told me i was nuts and how rare it is and only two known cases in the area for over a year..... okay... so this must make me impossiable then because only two known cases... absoultely zero chances for all other humane beings besides those two people in past to ever in furture get it. also because this doctor is a hunter and spends many hours aiming guns at incoccent animals and claims never to of gotten it. *info on this later to share differently with someone else...

i studied up really hard on all of the facts with lymes while i was severly sick for a couple days. all the syptoms besides rash... and it was very unpleasant.

i'm very use to it and learned well ... i happen to educate doctors. and this wasn't a no ordinary time.

people need to know... some people may have lymes and never get the target rash!!! also it can take up to months for it to show up yet all the while had been given lymes!
you CAN NOT rely on blood tests to show lymes. it LOVES to hid. it also may take months or years for better chances to show up.

my already self educated knowledge, no money and no insurance and ass hole doctor... i didn't have them test me for it.
but i had to set my foot down and litteraly demand the anti's to rid what i knew was lymes in me!
and he choked up and perscribed it.
within days i read in newspaper daryl hall etc had just started treatment.

okay now... so it wasn't just my doctor thinking i wrong diagnoised myself.... someone else in family thought so too.
months later he got blood tests done and it showed he has lymes in him but isn't a threat.

i'm just saying...

if you find a tick on yourself.... hey... they can detatch themselves too... but if you feel very ill and sore joints and fever etc immediately or soon after you were in woods.... go get the anti's!!!!
take pro-biotics 4-6 hours after each anti dose so you don't entirely wreck your system momentarly.

MMS (miracle mineral supplement) claims to rid lymes. it's a holistic remedy.

as far as how i contracted lymes be it the deers or from my friends pets.... it need not matter... it was a total sign to go/get out for me when it happened. it was an indication. a sign.

to pet a deer again.... i will battle lymes any day just for the beautiful serene experience! Smile

Hi NeeNee,

Lyme has become an epidemic that homeopathic researchers have found is actually a type of disease entity called a miasm, which we all carry - even those who have never had the deer tick.

MSM is targeting the symptoms, which are only the results of the disease, not the disease itself. So it's sort of like killing the messenger, and that's what most of the natural health field actually does, instead of working on the causative level.

Understandably, people want the symptoms to go away, but it's important to understand the distinction between symptom and disease. And MSM actually has some toxicity, so it should be used with caution if used at all.

The root cause of the disease can be removed with proper homeopathic treatment, by a practitioner who is trained to remove these miasms sequentially.

-Karen

MMS and MSM are two entirely different things. i'm use to it and is very common when i mention MMS that most people find it a typo. Smile

MMS helps to stop cancer even if in 4th stage and a week of life left.... cures many things. *the goons are affecting my thought.... lol... it seems to really piss 'em off when i give info out. maleria... a lot of things MMS helps people with. and it's easy to make it yourself at home if you get the goods. the guy that discovered it has a pure heart and gave the "recipie" out for free. however, one MUST MUST MUST follow the instructions or else it can be fatal or cause a temp fluish like symptom. you HAVE to introduce it to your system. getting the runs (bowel movement) are common in beginning, but not with everyone or getting a tad of upset stomach.

one NEEDS to follow the instructions and trust intuition etc....

MMS is just one option... there's anti's and other methods for cancer and lymes etc... everyone has their own route to heal.

Hi NeeNee,

My writing "MSM" was a typo - I meant MMS Smile.

I'm not sure what you mean here.. is there a particular point you'd like to clarify?

What I see is that although I am a natural health practitioner, I have a different view from most in the natural health field, due to my study and training in homeopathic medicine. And I have a differenr view of disease which defines disease and symptom precisely, with an important distinction between the two. As well as defining curing and healing, with an important distinction there too. And that changes the way that I view what it means to cure and heal.

This is very different from the idea of using various natural substances to make symptoms go away. Well, sure, you can do that to an extent. But it begs the question, what exactly is the nature of the thing that needs to be treated - is cancer really just the tumor? Is Lyme disease really just the rash or whatever symptoms are being expressed? In other words, if we can find a way to get rid of those symptoms, is the disease actually gone? Or is it just not visible anymore, and maybe it will express itself in another way? (It always does, if you know what the signs are).

If we're only looking at the outer manifestations, the symptoms, we're not getting a full view of what's going on, nor getting to the root cause of disease. This is a very complex subject that I'm only brushing the surface of here, so that may be why there is some kind of disconnect happening, and I apologize for that!

It's just very difficult to bring up this subject without creating more questions. But sometimes I just feel moved to say something along these lines, and not everyone is interested in this. But if it piques anyone's interest, I can suggest further reading.

-Karen

Karen is alright, just hard to fathom sometimes. It may mean she knows her stuff.

Anyway, Lyme is suppose to comes from deer ticks, according to the 'experts'.

Years ago, my grandmother got Lyme, and she was never out of the house, while I was out thrashing through the woods all the time. Plenty of deer around, but I never got it.

mmmm. i lost my very most friend friend this late may. 3 days later my healer/teacher/very close friend died of cancer. then my mom immediately went into hospital and they discovered her 4th stage cancer and then she died in early august.... my mom and best friend dies in my arms.

it doesn't sit pretty with me. although was blessed for their last breath in my arms. and i was fortuniate to know them all. i guess lucky they all died around same time. plus more people i found out about that died recently.

i'm very aware and have spoken it for very many years about things leading to illnesses etc. i know all about this... between diet, emotions, feng shui, aura etc..
but when it comes down to the point where everything is too late to heal from reversing these things with diet, emotions, feng shui and auric healings etc... and there's something else out there that is a heal all or enough to hold you over for awhile so you can have another chance to heal your body..... hey, i support it! if the illed person wants another chance to survive... it's their right.

i've learned soooooo many ways to stop cancer from growing and heal it much.... most people don't learn it because they listen to doctors.
my mom chose to die. couldn't help her... although i was able to years ago with breast cancer. but... she chose to die this time with colon cancer.

so.... i recognise i may of been rude to karen and i'm sure she has many wise things to share etc... but her post really erked me etc..... i haven't entirely healed from all my loved ones now currently roaming the other dimensions and not here physicaly.
