Dr Kenneth Leigner says “In the fullness of time, the mainstream handling of Chronic Lyme disease will be viewed as one of the most shameful episodes in the history of medicine because elements of academic medicine, elements of government and virtually the entire insurance industry have colluded to deny a disease”.
Disease carrying ticks are everywhere in the UK. They're in our woodlands, our fields, our gardens and on our pets.
Contrary to popular belief, Lyme disease is very common, it's just also very common for it to be mis-diagnosed... Could you be living with it?
1 in every 29 ticks in the UK carries Lyme disease. These are frightening statistics BUT actually living day to day with the disease is even worse (and I know all about that).
Unfortunately, our GP's are still not clued up on Lyme disease yet, in fact Chronic Lyme was denied it's existence until earlier this year (2018) by the NHS.
We still DO NOT have testing or treatment for Chronic Lyme disease sufferers in this country. How Bad is that?
A cure has not yet been discovered for Chronic Lyme disease full stop!
Did you know??? Lyme Disease is estimated to be a worldwide epidemic by 2028!!!
Use the "ticktools.net" £3 tick tool for the quick and easy removal of disease carrying ticks here in the U.K. It's such a small price to pay for your health!
Carry your "ticktools.net" tick tool remover with you everywhere you go!
If you think you have been bitten, if you have been bitten, if you don't know you've been bitten but have the bullseye rash then it's time to go to the doctors.
You'll need to be put on a 3 weeks minimum supply of antibiotics.
If you're still concerened after the 3 weeks course is up then go back to the doctors and insist on another 3 weeks course. We're all different. Sometimes the first course will kill the bacteria, but not always.
Lyme disease is now known to be a bigger epidemic than HIV.
