I have Lyme. I’d like to not have it anymore. I also just want cake.
Um, is this you? Cause this was me. Red Flag numero uno.
In the current and unfortunate political, medical, and even social environment in which we live, finding a credible and reliable physician to diagnose and treat Lyme disease is a far bigger challenge than it should be. If you suspect you may have Lyme, if you have been bitten by a tick and are experiencing symptoms, or if you have had ongoing, unexplained symptoms for which no medical doctor(s) have been able to properly address, I would strongly urge you to consult with a doctor properly trained in diagnosing and treating Lyme disease. In the Lyme community, we call these “Lyme-Literate Medical Doctors” (LLMD) or “Lyme-Literate Naturopathic Doctors (LLND). In short, these are doctors willing to use testing beyond the CDC and ISDA’s out-dated testing protocols (which conventional MD’s adhere to) and also to treat based on recent scientific evidence suggesting Lyme can not only evade current recommended testing, but also current recommended treatment.

Did we see red flags numero dos, tres, quatro, and beyond? Not good. The International Association for Tick-Borne Disease Society (ILADS) has an excellent Physician Referral program that I would urge you to use if you are concerned you may be suffering from Lyme or vector-borne (vector being an agent that transmits a disease – human, animal, or insect) infection… especially if any of these symptoms sound familiar. Lyme doesn’t mess around guys… get on it. Click here once again to learn more about Lyme and the many co-infections proven to be vector borne.
May your journey be filled with answers, healing, and wonderment in life again.
