Brook tells her story about Lyme Disease

Please note that the CDC now reports there are over 300,000 new cases per year.

Long term antibiotics are often taken for 3-5 years as part of the "normal" Standard of Care prior to the Doctor Controversy.

There are TWO STANDARDS OF CARE: we encourage each person to advocate for themselves by going to http://www.ilads.org/lyme/treatment-guideline.php 

The disease can be transmitted by more agents than just the deer tick. 

Yes, you can have a negative test and still have the disease (s).

What is Lyme Disease?

Lyme disease is a cluster of infections caused by bacteria, viruses, and parasites that enter the body's blood stream through a tick attachment. Primarily, it is the spiral shaped bacteria called "borrelia burgdorferi." Click HERE

The word, "Lyme," is really the name of a city in Conneticut, USA. That word has been the focus of disagreement and controversy since the 1970's. The word "Lyme" is not the green fruit; lime or limes. The word is pronounced singular "Lyme," not "Lymes."

Because the word "LYME" disease is the focus of so much disagreement in mainstream medicine (click here);

and government agencies, university medical centers, and private businesses have patents on the Lyme bacteria (borrelia burgdorferi) {click here};

and since these patents are being used for biomedical, biodefense research, and biowarfare (Click #1, #2).

and since corporate self-interest is taking precedence over the needs of patients;

and since corporate self-interest is causing intense grief to the average person that is infected with Lyme disease;

and since it is difficult in Kansas, the USA, and in other countries in the world, to access testing and treatment for Lyme disease in a manner that will minimize damage to the body, and decrease disability, and prevent death;

Therefore, at Kansas Tick-Borne Disease Advocates, Inc. (Kansas Lyme Fighters), we are going to refer to Lyme disease under the term, "Tick-borne" diseases.

The word, "Tick-borne" diseases covers a long list of bacterial infections found in the tick and transferred to people and animals.

Tick-borne diseases will be discussed in depth on it's own page.
