Severe case of Lymes Disease :(

Hey Everyone,

A friend of mine from College has one of the worst cases of Lymes Disease ever recorded. She's extremely sick and needs to fly to Germany to undergo treatment. The Estimated cost of travel/treatment etc is going to be around $25,000. If you could please take a couple minutes out of your day and read her blog I'm sure it would mean the world to her. Donations are greatly appreciated because every penny helps!

Thank You!

Total bummer, I wish her the best. My mother-in-law had a bad case, my bosses wife had a terrible case that was under treatment for years and a close friend's wife who lives nearby has one of the worse cases that I've heard of. I had a classic reaction to a tick bite that was treated swiftly through antibiotics & thankfully I was cured.

My step dad....well, one of them... had a gnarly case of this shit. He went hunting and was bitten by some sort of tick. Fell super sick, completely lost his vision and almost died.

He spent 7 months in a hospital and it took him over 3 years to restore vision with a help of a holistic doctor and a bunch of natural medicine.

Lyme disease was created by the US government. True story.

Any info on the treatment?
The treatment sounds very fishy.

The induction of therapeutic hypothermia will not cure a person of Borrelia bacteria. The bacteria will survive on it's own well beyond temperatures that the human body would survive during this proposed therapy. ICHT has been peddled to the sick hopeful it would make them better and sadly it's nothing more than a pipe dream.. Shame you just donated money to what's basically no more than a scam..
