Weekend Watching: Under Our Skin - Documentary About Lyme DiseaseSubmitted by Michael Nystrom on Sat, 04/26/2014 - 01:05
What do you guys know about Lyme Disease?
I have a friend who was diagnosed with it, and is undergoing (brutal) treatment. I didn't know much about it, so she recommended that I watch this film. It was an eye opener for sure! Lyme is a controversial, often misdiagnosed, and highly politicized disease. This film is an extremely well done introduction. Wow. I cannot recommend it highly enough. I learned so much.
I urge you to watch it for your own awareness and protection.
Excerpt from an Amazon review:
If you suffer from chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis, rheumatism, memory impairment, migraine, irritible bowel disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons, Epilepsy, Tourettes Syndrome, Autism, ALS, or Alzheimer's you may have Lyme Disease.
This DVD follows numerous Lyme Disease victims and explores the political controversies surrounding this devastating Disease, which is called "The Great Imitator," along with it's more easily detected and treated brother, Syphilis.
The current, officially accepted Lyme Disease testing and treatment guidelines, adopted by the Infectious Disease Society of America are exposed as a greedy fraud, which has caused horrendous unnecessary suffering and enormous costs to our nation. Financial conflicts of interest are exposed, including financial relationships with Lyme vaccine manufacturers and patents on Borrelia strains used by testing laboratories.
Unfortunately, health insurance companies profit by using these inadequate diagnostic criteria, to avoid diagnosing and treating patients, infected by Lyme Disease. The presently adopted testing criteria miss nearly as many actual Lyme Disease infections as they find. The approved IFA and Western Blot criteria prevents many Lyme Disease patients from being identified, until after they are disabled by this cruel disease.
Buy a copy of this DVD and schedule a free public viewing, at a local library, health food store, church, hospital, Autism, Parkinson's, Depression, Epilepsy, Lupus or addiction support group.
Since somewhere between 25 and 50 percent of the US population tests positive for Borrelia, with the more sensitive Lyme Disease tests, you almost certainly know someone suffering from Lyme Disease.
