  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
    you relied on the video to make your point. You
    definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    • CP,
      I’m not quite sure if this was a sincere comment, but I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt. First of all, thank you for the confidence in my expertise on this subject.

      For over two decades, LD has been ground zero for insurmountable politics from the many actors trying to control and profit from this debilitating epidemic (e.g., pharmas, insurance companies, labs, lobbyists, med centers, etc.). As these charlatans battle it out, countless millions around the world are becoming unnecessarily crippled because of lack of early treatment. Instead, LD is often misdiagnosed for non-curable diseases like ALS, MS, etc. whose causes are unknown and have no cure.

      When, I first got infected, the information available was completely wrong. I did not get proper treatment, was misdiagnosed, and unfortunately am now a quadriplegic. Had I known better, I might have had a better outcome.

      Therefore, since I am not a physician , this site clearly differentiates between my opinions and professionals in the field. And hopefully, readers can be better informed regarding treatment and prevention.

      Regards,
      Rob
