"I am struck by how Lyme disease never seems to act exactly the way it is supposed to, how each individual seems to respond differently to the spirochete."

~ Polly Murray, The Widening Circle

If a person hasn't read that book, it's about time. (grin)

"We see that research is revealing the gray in our understanding of Lyme disease and that the extreme positions held by polarized camps are no longer tenable and must move closer to a common middle ground. We are hopeful that this evolving knowledge will curb some of the polarized opinions about Lyme disease."

~ Dr. Brian Fallon, Columbia University Lyme & Tickborne Diseases Research Center

Big phrase I learned when I first began studying nutrition.  Biochemical Individuality.  Best example I have is the way the Salk vaccine, or rather the SV40 it contained, has effected my father, who has very rare (<1%), type AB blood.  It began quickly after he got the vaccine, with a severe pitting acne, the only one in his 1955 class who looked like that.  By the time he was in his late 50s, he just wasn't the same because of the neuro degeneration.  Now he is invalid and given diagnoses such as ALS and Alzheimer's, but I know what's truly behind it all.

It would be good to look for correlations between symptoms and blood type or other unique factors in many disease states, rather than try to treat us as one would the whole "herd".

Dr. Liegner’s remarks at the World Wide Lyme Rally & Protest Friday, May 10, 2013 Union Square, New York City

“Chronic Lyme disease does not exist”.

There are at least four possibilities to explain why a person might hold this view:

They can be ‘dumb as bags of rocks’.

They can be character-disordered, with excessively rigid thinking, and perfect, impenetrable circular logic.

They can be corrupt.

They can be sociopaths.

One thing is for damn sure: they are truly lousy clinicians.
