Petition Closed

 

According to the CDC, there are about 25,000 confirmed Lyme cases each year, and admit it may be 10-times that number. Lyme disease is a spreading epidemic, and people are getting sick and dying, but the CURRENTLY-APPROVED TESTS ARE INACCURATE! IDSA is in the pocket of Big Pharma and other corporate-medical interests. Treating doctors are threatened if they mention the "L" word, pushing treatment underground. Doctors think tests miss >50% of patients. Lyme disease will remain terminal as long as patients are denied access to KNOWN EFFECTIVE TREATMENT that insurance companies should be covering. Three immediate family members have it. Help us get a voice in this process. It will save hundreds of thousands of lives each year.

Change Inaccurate Lyme Disease Guidelines To Newer ILADS.

According to the CDC, there are about 25,000 confirmed Lyme cases each year, and admit it may be 10-times that number. Lyme disease is a spreading epidemic, and people are getting sick and dying, but the CURRENTLY-APPROVED TESTS ARE INACCURATE! IDSA is in the pocket of Big Pharma and other corporate-medical interests. Treating doctors are threatened if they mention the "L" word, pushing treatment underground. Doctors think tests miss >50% of patients. Lyme disease will remain terminal as long as patients are denied access to KNOWN EFFECTIVE TREATMENT that insurance companies should be covering. My wife has late-stage Lyme, and two daughters have it. Help us get a voice in this process. It will save hundreds of thousands of lives each year. Thank you!
