New Lyme Culture Test Causes Major Denial

As usual, the standard denials and misinformation regarding the reality of there being far more treatable people infected with Lyme disease is being spread by the mainstream medical community.

While they pretend to show empathy, stating that such tests must not be used until proven (by their standards) to be valid, because they may cause patients to miss out on having a correct diagnosis, many, many patients, like me, ARE SIMPLY GIVEN UP ON by mainstream medicine.

I was ABSOLUTELY STUNNED when my doctor admitted to me that they were giving up and would not be doing any further diagnostic work.  The bottom line was, none of the doctors or specialists knew what was wrong with me, nor how to go about treating me other than pumping me full of pain medication, but rather than look seriously at any of what they claim is unproven and/or bogus diagnostic methods, they simply gave up.

WOW!!  If you give up in ANY OTHER PROFESSION, YOU ARE FIRED!!  But not doctors.  Does this inspire trust?  Not from me, any longer...  The greatest danger to health is not people going for untested and unproven medical help;  the greatest danger is those, including the various Colleges of Physicians and Surgeons, who are FORCING very sick people to look elsewhere for help.

The following article regarding a new Lyme Culture Test, published today on PubMed, is typical of what is going on:
