- Hello, Jeff - You bet the guidelines are a disaster.
Doctors have been penalized for treating chronic Lyme Disease. The CDC,
AMA, FDA et al refuse to believe that chronic Lyme exists. The last time
I went to a doctor (who I fired in June 2006), she told me that the normal
dosing for Lyme is two weeks of antibiotics.
- Unfortunately, the doctor who I had been seeing for the
past few years - and had a good rapor with - had left the practice. The
young lady who took his place appeared to be fresh out of med school.
By the book. The problem is that disease affects people differently. Although
there are some symptoms consistent in all people afflicted, many people
react differently to various diseases. For example, not everyone gets
a bullseye rash, or finds it, in Lyme. Political correctness has found
its way into the doctors' offices...and it will kill people.
- Doctors who test for Lyme are not testing for m. incognitus
either. Many Lyme cases are coinfected with mycoplasma. The m. incognitus/fermentens
has the ability to take the Lyme pathogen and insert it deeply into the
body and organs.
- As you know, some Lyme Disease patients are also co-infected
with Ehrlichiosis. That happened to me. At the time, there was an epidemic
of erhlichiosis, therefore the ER checked for Ehrlichiosis - but never
checked for Lyme! The antibiotic treatment took care of the Ehrlichiosis
but was not long enough to knock out the Lyme and that caused me to become
- There is a Dr. Horowitz in Hyde Park, NY who treats long-term
Lyme patients. He believes that Lyme can hide dormant/inactive in the
body, organs and when the immune system is challenged, the Lyme can reactivate.
He encourages patients to keep a daily record, a diary of symptoms and
when Lyme activates, he tries to attack it with further antibiotic treatment.
Dr. Horowitz has had a terrible time with the AMA, and at one time was
in danger of losing his liscense for doing what he took an oath to do:
try to heal people.
- I think this is a disgrace and it figures that the author
of the guidelines is at Westchester County Medical center, which is a teaching
hospital and medical school. No wonder the young doctors come out uninformed,
and patientts have to teach them how to prescribe.
