Lyme Disease and Disability Claims

Lyme Disease and Disability Claims

"Those who continue to suffer with identifiable Lyme symptoms have a hard time getting disability claims paid long-term. Unfortunately, as long as physicians and the medical community remain on the fence of uncertainty, disability insurers will continue to take advantage and not pay long-term disability for Lyme."

"Kyle Morton can trace his life as a songwriter back to a bug bite. Morton was bitten by a tick as a child, contracting a case of Lyme disease that went undiagnosed for years, even as it wreaked havoc on his body."

"It obliterated any sense of these monumental truths that I had as a kid: that I would grow up, that I would be strong and tall. That's something, on a personal level, I've been trying to come to terms with, this regret, or this feeling of loss, over a person I never became," Morton says. "So that's the only thing I find worthwhile to write about, because not only is it important to me, I think it's a feeling a lot of people can relate to — a sense of wanting to be something and not being able to achieve it."

Lyme Disease itself plays a certain role as an invading organism, and as a result, it affects the body differently than say how another disease would. So the food you should eat should specifically address the effects Lyme Disease uniquely has as a disease on the body; the same way you would take a certain medication for a specific ailment.

"Let thy food be thy medicine". It's not an ambiguous statement with a mysterious meaning. It literally means eat this food, and you'll have directly contributed to your body's healing resources and capabilities. 

Certain foods not only exploit different healing capabilities within the body, but also work alongside it in a beneficially healing manner.

Fibromyalgia Mystery Finally Solved!

http://guardianlv.com/2013/06/fibromyalgia-mystery-finally-solved/

New York Times editorial calls for more Lyme research -

http://lymedisease.org/news/lyme_disease_views/nyt-editorial.html

Borrelia burgdorferi s. l. complex Lyme disease spirochetes are microbes that successfully suppress and evade the human immune system. Therefore, they cause persistent infections with immune-related long-term sequelae.

Borrelia burgdorferi s. l. complex Lyme disease spirochetes are microbes that 

successfully suppress and evade the human immune system. Therefore, they 

cause persistent infections with immune-related long-term sequelae. 


Also confirmation of Sapi's finding on biofilm..

Neither strain died in the experiment. We observed a form of biofilm-formation 

of large Borrelia burgdorferi bundles (see cover; unpublished), which likely 

served to protect Borrelia bacteria from complement. This may be analogous 

to attack of the complement system on tumors, where the outer cell-layers are 

attacked, but the inner layers protected (128). This mechanism has also been 

documented elsewhere (76). MMPs (68, 75, 129) enable the spirochetes to 

invade tissues and when they are able to grow into a larger population, they 

may be able to shield each other by forming a form of biofilm. Because there 

was a very large amount of bacteria, the majority of the cells were not 

attacked. In a physiological sense this may partially explain the difficulty in treating persistent long-term infections.

There is a crucial event going on in the Lyme world.

http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi/topic/1/125607#000025

There is a crucial event going on in the Lyme world.
The new culture method, published by Sapi et al and set up at Advanced Laboratory Services, and based on great expertise and advice from Dr Alan MacDonald and to a lesser extent Dr Joe Burrescano, has been vilified by the CDC in a paper authored by Barbara Johnson.
The CDC team claimed that a major proportion of Dr Sapi's samples from patients' blood contained DNA sequences from the standard strains of borrelia that were kept in her lab, and thus they must have been contaminated samples, and that's why they gave positive culture results. The patient's weren't positive, and the lab had just been growing borrelia that had crept into the cultures. And also, there were too many garinii strains seen, which shouldn't be in the USA.
All this is poppycock because borrelia garinii and afzelii are being found in the states and in Mexico . And so it seems there is another glaring mistake that she has made: 
Dr Barbara Johnson wrote that she had registered 3 sequences of the "contaminants" at the Gene bank. 
But no one can find them in the gene bank where she said she's registered them.

Also, the most crucial point of all is this so amazing and farcical it's the biggest mistake of all which makes all the squirming around talking about which bits of the genes were "contaminants" absolutely unnecessary:
Hardly anyone in the world was aware that Dr Sapi's standard strains of borrelia were kept in her labs in New Haven Connecticut, and never left the premises. Any work with them was carried out there.
The work with patients' blood was carried out at the ALS labs in Philadelphia, at least 200 miles away.
There is no way that the Borrelia could have hopped on a plane or a train and planted itself in the Philadelphia labs.
But Barbara magically found that they were in Dr Sapi's samples at the ALS labs and rushed into publication and now has egg on her face in front of the whole world of microbiology and infectious disease and molecular biology too.

This is the proverbial excrement hitting the fan, and it is at the very front of the crucial battle in the Lyme wars where the persistence of Borrelia is being proved..the lives of millions of people depends on this because if this somehow gets pushed away and hidden, then we will know that all science and all truth will have been denied..

The CDC have spread their paper around in the news quite a bit, as they have the power and connections to do this, and it was a major news item on the massive publication called Medscape, which hundreds of thousands of doctors, nurses, social workers and scientists receive in their inbox every day. The way it's worded is as if the case it shut and closed, with contamination being proved and the ALS methods trashed...

That was about 5 days ago.
Not one single comment has appeared after the article, although I know of at least one person who has tried to put a comment on there, and several of us believe that there may be drastic censorship going on.

Alan MacDonald has written to the editors of the journal in which the CDC article was published, and he has now also written to the head of the CDC. He is prepared to take this to a senate committee which oversees the CDC unless he receives an explanation for several questions he's asked.

This is history in the making folks...

"College of Charleston president George Benson is in the hospital being treated for Lyme Disease, according to an e-mail he addressed to members of the campus community this week.

A week ago Benson, 67, had been hospitalized for severe back pain, but he wasn't sure of the cause, he wrote. He said for the past week medical professionals at the Medical University of South Carolina had been looking for the source. 

“I am still at the hospital, where I’m now being treated for Lyme Disease,” Benson wrote in the Aug. 26 email, which reached staff at the college early in the morning. He expects he'll stay in the hospital for at least a week. "

COMMON HERBS TO TREAT LYME DISEASE

In treating Lyme Disease its important to remember that there is more than one way to skin a cat. There are differing opinions as to WHAT the diagnostic criteria should be and unfortunately the current lab testing available today is inaccurate. There are also differing opinions as to HOW Lyme should or can be treated and truth be known they all very well can be effective. There are many traditional treatment protocols available that utilize prescription antibiotics and at the other end of the spectrum there are homeopathic remedies that have been supported by studies to be equally effective in killing the Lyme organism. -and somewhere in the middle is a happy medium that utilizes a little bit of traditional medicine along with some herbal therapies

As Lyme diseases cases increase, so must research, treatment As Lyme diseases cases increase, so must research, treatment As Lyme diseases cases increase, so must research, treatment

"However, such steps don’t change the situation people who are sickened by Lyme disease can face even if they promptly seek medical care. Tests to determine if someone has Lyme are notoriously unreliable. That is why statisticians need to count not only the 3,342 cases of Lyme that state physicians confirmed last year (a 19 percent increase over 2011), but the 1,708 probable cases."

"In its study, the CDC gathered insurance-claim data for 22 million people, along with positive Lyme tests and conducted a survey that asked people whether they’d received a Lyme diagnosis in the previous 12 months."

"The CDC report won’t come as a surprise to Lyme victims and their allies, who have struggled to convince the medical establishment that the disease is more insidious — and requires more vigorous treatment — than some practitioners think."

Dutchess County officials, citing initial testing, believe Elone may have been bitten by a tick infected with Powassan encephalitis. The virus is untreatable and can be transmitted by a tick bite in a matter of minutes.

A recent study by the journal Parasites & Vectors shows 6 percent of ticks in the Hudson Valley carry a variant of the virus, according to The Poughkeepsie Journal. Researchers say the number is low compared to Lyme disease carriers, but it's also higher than expected. 

"There are no diagnostic tests for the disease, and no treatments that are effective," said Dr. David Roth, co-chair of the Tick-Borne Disease Alliance.

Deer repellent manufacturer sees an unexpected ten fold increase in demand following the CDC's announcement that new annual Lyme Disease cases are ten times the number they previously reported...

"The cost to the United States is estimated at $30 billion annually."

"A report issued in "Contingencies," an actuarial publication, estimated that the average per patient cost of Lyme Disease, including treatment, diagnosis, and lost wages, is more than $60,000 per year per patient."

"Adjusted for inflation to 2013 dollars,this cost increases to almost $100,000 per patient per year. Since Lyme disease is not readily diagnosed, and if not identified right away the health impact can take years to overcome, the national cost is potentially staggering."

Epstein-Barr Virus in Systemic Autoimmune Diseases

Epstein-Barr Virus in Systemic Autoimmune Diseases

"Systemic autoimmune diseases (SADs) are a group of connective tissue diseases with diverse, yet overlapping, symptoms and autoantibody development. The etiology behind SADs is not fully elucidated, but a number of genetic and environmental factors are known to influence the incidence of SADs. Recent findings link dysregulation of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) with SAD development."

"In conclusion, EBV is demonstrated to have a role as an environmental trigger in the development of SADs. Individual genetically determined and acquired differences in innate and adaptive immunity and the constant interplay between the host’s immune response and EBV immune-modulating proteins may result in individual disease patterns, which are overlapping, but clinically may be classified as SLE, RA, and SS. It is also possible that every time the control of EBV diminishes, EBV reactivates and reinfects more cells of different types in different locations of the body, resulting in specific manifestations and progression of disease flares"
