Do you remember the commercial “Got Milk?” where some famous actor or athlete is holding a glass of milk in their hand with a white ‘milk mustache’ on their upper lip? Unfortunately, Lyme disease is not so obvious. In fact, it is a very misunderstood disease making it very under diagnosed causing it to then be mistreated. In fact, the testing for Lyme is SO inaccurate that in spring of 2016 a bill was passed in Maryland requiring doctors to have patients sign a statement that the patient understands that a negative Lyme test result may not be accurate and that they may actually have Lyme disease.
This winter has been very warm so the tick population has not died off as a result of abnormally warm temperatures. Experts are predicting that this spring and summer will bring a high infestation of ticks due to the warm weather.
I am hosting a workshop for Lyme disease to give you the opportunity to learn about Lyme disease, what is it and why it is so difficult to treat.
We all know someone who has been affected by Lyme disease so please pass this notice along to ANYONE you know who may be affected and/or interested in learning more about Lyme disease and alternative ways to addressing this illness.
