Yes, there was once a Lyme Disease vaccine, and it was pulled from the market due to “poor sales” after seeming to generate symptoms that mimicked the disease

The disease is spread to humans through the bite of black-legged or deer ticks (Ixodes scapularis).

Ticks are tiny arachnids commonly found in grassy, woodland … Continue reading 7 Ways you’re unknowingly putting yourself at risk for Lyme disease

12 Conditions that mimic rheumatoid arthritis and could lead to misdiagnosis

It turns out that there are many diseases and health issues that share similar symptoms to rheumatoid arthritis, making them likely to be mistaken for the arthritis sub-type and vice versa. Unsurprisingly, arthritis sub-types comprise half of the 12 likeliest suspects for misdiagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis belongs to the autoimmune or inflammatory sub-type. There are also … Continue reading 12 Conditions that mimic rheumatoid arthritis and could lead to misdiagnosis

Live Blood Analysis in Dark Field and its Credibility

Biggest disadvantage of Live Blood Analysis in Dark Field is the fact it is based on observations and interpretations with no general scientific acceptance. Anybody with possibilities of self-publication has therefore the chance to voice his own interpretations. Thus was the situation over 50 years ago already and it will never change. However, practitioners doing … Continue reading Live Blood Analysis in Dark Field and its Credibility

Lyme disease compromises your body’s ability to detoxify, increasing risk from environmental toxins like heavy metals

Lyme disease is far more common than many of us realize. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that around 300,000 people are diagnosed with this bacterial infection each year. That’s over 1.5 times more people than the total number of women diagnosed with breast cancer, and about six times as many as … Continue reading Lyme disease compromises your body’s ability to detoxify, increasing risk from environmental toxins like heavy metals
