Help bring Lyme research to new levels.

With today’s technology and knowledge we are lightyears ahead of just one decade ago. It is time for aggressive human tissue/fluid study, both live subject and post mortem.

No longer should we simply throw away tissues in any surgery people with and many other conditions. We want to thoroughly explore just how prevalent borreliosis is in the human population and we can do it now.

Well over 1 million Canadians suffer from chronic illnesses such as myalgic encephalomyelitis (also known as chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia, multiple chemical sensitivities and Lyme disease. Currently these diseases do not get the required attention by our health care system. Moreover, research in these fields lacks greatly.

A new Complex Chronic Diseases Clinic will open in 2013 in Vancouver to address these diseases, research them and provide the support that its sufferers deserve.

Through this project, we want to help fund medical equipment needed in order to properly diagnose these patients, and acquire essential equipment in order to conduct proper research.

Here is the equipment that is currently most needed, identified by the administrators of this clinic:

Ongoing research in the future
-minus 80 degree Celsius upright freezer to store future patient samples for ongoing research in Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lyme disease and Fibromyalgia
-refrigerated centrifuge to spin down the samples
-software system to track the patient samples and a label producing machine to track the samples in the freezer.

 No one is immune to these diseases in Canada. They happen to men, women and children. Moreover, many of the current patients are disabled, housebound and bedridden. This clinic in Vancouver represent hope for a better future.

If I had one question for Dr. Burton Waisbren, it would be ~ What’s it like to go to work and sit at the table with the IDSA? Looking very forward to reading this book.

Many people are saying that this is the most important Lyme disease book ever written!

Keep reading to find out why…

One of the biggest obstacles facing patients with chronic Lyme disease is the IDSA (Infectious Diseases Society of America). This prestigious organization has denied the scientific validity of chronic Lyme disease and looks down upon the Lyme-literate physicians who treat it.

The author of this book is not just any Lyme disease doctor!

Dr. Burton Waisbren is not only a current Fellow of the IDSA, he is is also one of it Founding Members! He has been in medical practice for over 57 years and has published Lyme disease research in prestigious journals including, The Lancet.

In this book, he tells us the truth: that chronic Lyme disease is a real medical condition which he has treated dozens of times in his 57+ year career as an infectious disease physician. 
By reading this book, you will find out how Dr. Waisbren is helping his patients and which treatments he has found to be most effective for
chronic Lyme disease.

Excerpt: Dr. Waisbren states that based on his 51 years in “investigative internal medicine”, his training in infectious disease, the medical literature, and all his clinical experience that he has (direct quote) “Come to the conclusion that there is an epidemic of chronic Lyme disease occurring in the United States that warrants more attention than it is getting from the government and the academic medical establishment. It is hard for me to believe that the fifty one cases of what I call the chronic Lyme disease syndrome represent a figment of my imagination.” He add this, “I suggest that those who doubt that the Lyme disease syndrome exists and that it can be treated turn to the over two hundred peer reviewed references included in summary articles written by two giants in the Lyme disease field: Dr. B.A. Fallon and Dr. Steven Phillips.”
