Kyra Lerner tells her story of struggle and recovery after contracting chronic Lyme, a controversial diagnosis linked to Lyme disease-carrying ticks. Kyra’s story is the second in our five-part investigative series. Natalie Pasquarella reports.
Lots of great info presented in this story – particularly the polarization of medicine and the fact that if Kyra’s parents would have followed the paradigm of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), where they espouse essentially 21 days of doxycycline to be curative in all cases, she would be sicker than a dog with no hope. Thankfully, she and thousands of others have followed the paradigm of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) who believe Lyme is pleomorphic and persistent, requiring much more than 21 days of doxycycline as well as the fact there is often coinfection involvement, requiring different drugs for far longer than a month. This group also believes that IV treatments can be quite helpful for a subset of patients despite the government’s recent attempt to stop IV therapy for Lyme/MSIDS: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2017/06/21/ilads-rebuttal-to-mmwr-article/
For a great article explaining the tug of war: TheCaseforthePersistenceofLymeDiseaseAfterAntibioticTherapy The truth is that over 50% of the IDSA’s guidelines are based on “expert opinion” rather than “evidence-based medicine” as their publication suggests. A further 31% of the IDSA guidelines are based on observational studies. Only a meagre 29% of the IDSA Guidelines fit into “evidence-based medicine”.(22,23,24,25,27) Importantly, the IDSA’s own research supports these very findings.(22
Please understand for those of you just tuning in – THIS IS A WAR of epic proportions.
The reason we find ourselves here even 40 years after Lyme was “officially” discovered is due to money, power, and collusion at the highest level of government. The government holds the patents on Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb), Lyme testing, the Lyme vaccine, and has been controlling the narrative for decades, even taking specific bands out of Lyme testing that show infection due to their patent on the Lyme vaccine.

Please, don’t allow yourself to be fooled. The powers that be have been controlling research and the narrative on Tick borne illness from the start. Nothing about this is new. It’s as old as the hills. In fact, one researcher has filed an anti-trust law-suit due to government suppression of a more accurate and cheaper Lyme test: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2017/09/25/speaking-of-fake-science-fifty-seven-million-anti-trust-lawsuit-against-cdc-lyme-tests/
This same researcher and others have also complained of how the CDC is controlling the research being done: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2017/01/13/lyme-science-owned-by-good-ol-boys/. This article explains how they do it on a practical level: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2017/01/02/fake-science/
So while I’m extremely happy for these news stories, this abusive treatment of Lyme/MSIDS patients and the doctors who dare to treat them has been going on since it was formally given a name in the 80’s.
