Materials provided by Tulane University. Bay Area Lyme Foundation, a leading sponsor of Lyme disease research in the US, today announced results of two papers published in the peer-reviewed journals PLOS ONE and American Journal of Pathology, that seem to support claims of lingering symptoms reported by many patients who have already received antibiotic treatment for the disease.

Outline:

“Based on a single, extensive study of Lyme disease designed by Tulane University researchers, the study employed multiple methods to evaluate the presence of Borrelia burgdorferi spirochetes, the bacteria that cause Lyme disease, before and after antibiotic treatment in primates.”

“The data show that living B. burgdorferi spirochetes were found in ticks that fed upon the primates and in multiple organs after treatment with 28 days of oral doxycycline.”

“The findings also demonstrated:

  • All subjects treated with antibiotics were found to have some level of infection 7 — 12 months post treatment.
  • Despite testing negative by antibody tests for Lyme disease, two of 10 subjects were still infected with Lyme bacteria in heart and bladder.
  • Lyme bacteria which persist are still viable.”

LYME DOCUMENTARY – ARE WE CRAZY?? — WE NEED THIS FILM!

FROM THE PRODUCERS OF “THE MONSTER INSIDE ME”

“Hi everyone!! Tony & Frances here- we are the producers of The Monster Inside Me, Lyme documentary, along with Paul Cho (The Angriest Man in Brooklyn and Tallulah). Our dream and deepest desire is to finish this film (please watch our teaser and visit our website) and send it to the film festival circuit so that we have a chance to get the doc seen by tons of people. We also want to do private viewings around the country, wherever you are. That is our goal and dream.
This movie is being created BY Lyme Warriors FOR Lyme Warriors and their families and friends. The music is being composed by artists that suffer with Lyme, as is all the editing and production. This is OUR movie about what WE suffer with. It is about showing the world what Lyme is, unmasked, raw. Yet at the same time, it is unveiling what transformations this disease causes when the Warrior pushes through, doesn’t give up, seeks treatment and shares their story. We want your loved ones to understand you, to have an “aha” moment when watching the movie. But mostly, we want to give you hope, as we interview doctors and leading scientists about healing and living with Lyme.

We also point the camera at ourselves showing the world what Lyme does to a relationship, to your body, mind and soul! In this journey of 18 months now, we came across AMAZING people who shun light in our paths, helped us heal in more ways than one, and allowed us to see the purpose and beauty, dare we say it, of Lyme Disease. We want to share this with you…. in the art form of film.

The vast majority of the movie has been filmed. We need the last leg to do a few more trips – including an interview with a leading scientist and Lyme specialiset at the University of Connecticut, and Dr. Horowitz, in NY. Once we are done with that, post production comes to play, where long hours will be spent on color grading, correction, the film soundtrack, mixing, etc. This is the bulk of our costs, although very tight.

Please help by contributing and then asking a few people around you to do the same. Share the trailer, share the story. We appreciate it and love you guys!

What is happening?

There is currently a form of a class-action lawsuit in development against the CDC and other entities causing personal injury to the public regarding the lack of use, suppression, and failure to promote a PCR (DNA sequencing) test, developed by Dr. Sin Hang Lee, which has been available since 2010 for early Lyme disease detection.

Linked-In Author Jenna Luché-Thayer Spells It Out in Capital Letters on the CDC!

In a July 4th article, author Jenna Luche-Thayer describes how the CDC’s profile has plummeted while 15 other government authorities are acting on persistent and disabling Lyme Disease. She questions the motives of the CDC and the view they project concerning chronic Borreliosis.

This is a must read for anyone who doesn’t fully understand why the CDC isn’t treating this (persistent Lyme infection) as the epidemic it is.

The Mayday Project is sponsoring a protest in front of The White House. We are calling on all Lyme Victims to join us and appeal to President Donald Trump to call for an immediate Congressional Hearing of the CDC in regards to their handling of Lyme Disease. For too long the CDC has given preferential treatment to the IDSA, following their antiquated, falsified guidelines for Lyme Disease Diagnosis and Treatment
