Dr. Zackrison is a stellar doctor that has an extensive background which allowed her to save many, many lives. Her expertise, dedication and multiple skill sets are rare to find in a physician; her understanding and interpretation of the science behind medical diagnostics is beyond exceptional. Had I not chosen to become her patient, I honestly don't think I would be alive and writing this today. She heals and cures the sickest of the sick and takes on the most complex patients from all over the country and beyond. She is caught in a global controversy, but it's the patients and the doctors that treat them that suffer the greatest consequences. (Please watch the documentary 'Under our Skin' to learn more about this silent epidemic, certain to go down as the most extensive, politically-soaked medical conundrum ever). Dr. Z treats many illnesses and ailments, but the controversy at hand is the treatment of tick-borne disease.
The purpose of this petition is to spread the word, sound the alarm, and raise awareness about a devastating loss the medical system will suffer if her license remains suspended, or becomes revoked. Imagine if the health care system terminated Cancer, HIV, Congestive Heart Failure, and Autoimmune patients healing treatments and then they lose their doctors and their hopes for staying alive. Late-stage Lyme disease and co-infections should be treated no differently. That is what those of us suffering from tick-borne disease are facing and we need help.
This, plain and simple, is a violation of our human right to choose our doctor and course of treatment, just like humans with any other major disease. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) backs the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) guidelines and not the rigid guidelines of the Infections Disease Society of America (IDSA). Late last year (2018) the CDC even took down their sponsorship of the outdated IDSA guidelines from their website. The IDSA is currently being sued by many patients in the state of Texas because following the "rules" left them misdiagnosed, more debilitated, and in a few cases dead. Dr. Z is an ILADS approved physician and treats her patients with care based on clinical and laboratory evidence. Her methods have worked. I've seen it personally, in my significant other, and countless other patients at her office that she is saving lives.
If you feel like you should have the right to choose your provider and medical future then please support this petition and share. Any donation to offset her incomprehensible legal fees would be deeply appreciated. WE NEED MONEY. Without support, Dr. Z will have to quit this fight before it begins. Lyme patients are broke. We need individuals, corporations, advocacy groups, and anyone willing to help us fight for this unimaginably important cause. If you wish to donate PLEASE use the her gofundme page linked at the top of the page. Also, and most importantly, please read the message directly from the website www.keepdrzfightingforus.com below:
ABOUT THE EFFORTS OF DR. ZACKRISON
So Many Have Been Helped
Lyme Disease is a growing issue throughout the world, and it is rapidly becoming a significant health crisis. It is one of the most difficult diseases to treat in the world. Lyme patients live a life of chronic pain, with various debilitating conditions that affect the mind and body.
These conditions leave patients searching for answers to their various symptoms, but with the lack of proper treatment, they experience little success, with a greater chance of reoccurrence. Lyme disease symptoms often resemble that of so many other diseases (MS, Fibromyalgia, Lupus, CFS, and many more) and because the conventional medical community continues to be misinformed about diagnosis and treatment, patients fail to receive the medical care necessary to restore their health fully.
Her methods, deemed unconventional by the Virginia Board of Medicine, have become the basis for her license being suspended, leaving her unable to further help and cure her patients.
The Virginia Board is against your rights to not only to choose your doctor, but to make medical decisions that best serve you. The Board’s allegations are against persistent Lyme, Tick Borne Diseases, use of antibiotics beyond 10-14 days, against the use of supplements, vitamins, homeopathies, and the entire scope of the practice of integrative medicine. We need to collectively make a great noise and make our voices heard regarding this injustice. We are all affected by this Virginia Board decision and it brings fear and worry to all Virginians who need medical treatment but are not allowed to choose what is best for them.
This GoFundMe account will assist Dr. Zackrison's legal team, who are currently preparing and awaiting for her hearing against the Board on a date to be decided in February of 2020.
Dr. Leila Zackrison out of Fairfax, Virginia has utilized her incredible knowledge in traditional and holistic medicine to help those of us suffering from Chronic and Acute Lyme find support and relief.
