"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 300,000 people are diagnosed with Lyme disease in the U.S. every year. That's 1.5 times the number of women diagnosed with
breast cancer, and six times the number of people with HIV/AIDS each year in the U.S. However, because diagnosing Lyme can be difficult, many people who actually have Lyme may be misdiagnosed with other conditions. Many experts believe the true number of cases is much higher."
Lyme is endemic to Nantucket Island. As a practitioner, I specialize in educating and offering holistic assistance around this virulent syndrome.
Working through tick/insect born illness programs can be a challenge to say the very least. Any Lyme literate practitioner will tell you there is no quick fix. It takes a multi- tiered approach along with an abundance of lifestyle changes that will challenge you every step of the way. Tick/insect born diseases are persistent, tenacious and smart. So we must be the same.
Most people do not realize that when we get bit by a tick we are not just dealing with Lyme. We are dealing with a host of other co-infections like Babesia, Bartonella and Mycoplamsa. Not to mention parasite eggs. Most people get infected with multiple organisms. It is very rare to be infected with only one. And if you have been diagnosed with only one, I would question the testing methods. The current tests are exteremely inefficient and inconsistent. This is one of the main reasons there are so many people who have been misdiagnosed and are going untreated. Finding yourself a Lyme literate practitioner is the key.
