Lyme Disease – Cutting Through the B.S.

In this broadcast on “Lyme Disease, Cutting Through the B.S.” we discuss how the paradigm needs to shift for those with chronic effects of Lyme disease.  The current evidence demonstrates Lyme disease, in the chronic form, to be more of an autoimmune illness. We also discuss the immunosuppressive aspects of this disease as well as how conventional and alternative testing methods are not sensitive or specific requiring a different model for testing.  Please stay tuned and enjoy this broadcast.
