Emily let me borrow her DVD, "Under Our Skin." It was a good, informative, eye opening, sad, and scary movie. If you ever have the opportunity to watch this movie, I highly recommend it. If nothing else, please watch the film excerpt below. It will give you a glimpse into the devastation that Lyme can cause, and the controversy and lies swirling around about this disease.
I highly respect a doctor who is willing to take on Lyme patients, listen to them, test them, and treat them for Lyme. Because these doctors know and believe the truth about Lyme, because they want to help these patients, because they do not want to profit from payoffs and private research, they choose to risk their medical licenses in order to help cure these patients. Their success stories prove that they are right, and that they are truly helping these patients to get their lives and health back.
