Welcome to the Madison Area Lyme Support Group.
The Madison Area Lyme Support Group was started in November of 2009 with meetings held in public spaces for anyone looking for help and support.
This is not a *non-profit* nor a *business* just a volunteered run website to share educational info and give dates, times and places for meetings. Make sure to check out the resources and the online support groups listed on the right side of this page.
Check out the “Meetings” page in the upper right hand corner to find out when and where the next meeting will be.
This website has a clear bias toward patients who have been abused and marginalized for decades by researchers, doctors, health professionals, and the media. The biased research used against patients is run by “The Cabal” whom have clear conflicts of interests and own patents on test kits and vaccines. They have used their power as a bully pulpit to the demise of extremely sick people by rigging the diagnostic tests for their patent purposes. To read about this:
They have also used their power to set treatment “guidelines” that insurance companies hide behind so they don’t have to pay for treatment: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2018/02/14/another-lyme-patient-denied-health-benefits-files-lawsuit/
Lyme/MSIDS patients have been suffering since it was discovered over 40 years ago with every single thing stacked against them. It is estimated that 1 million will contract Lyme/MSIDS in 2018: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2018/02/24/one-million-predicted-to-get-lyme-in-2018-in-the-u-s/and more than 2 million could suffer with chronic symptoms by 2020: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2019/05/18/more-than-2-million-could-suffer-from-post-treatment-lyme-disease-syndrome-in-2010-study-says/
BTW: the actual number is far, far greater as this post treatment Lyme disease syndrome (PTLDS) group is a falsely skewed number representing 10-20% of patients who get diagnosed and treated early. It does not and should not include the 30-40% who are diagnosed and treated late. https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2019/02/25/medical-stalemate-what-causes-continuing-symptoms-after-lyme-treatment/ By simply adding the two groups it reveals that:
60% of patients go on to suffer with chronic – perhaps life long symptoms.
Due to the polarization of this life-changing disease(s), health professionals have split from the CDC/IDSA “guidelines” approach and philosophy and have formed ILADS (International Lyme and Associated diseases Society) as they understand the fraud, corruption, and collusion going on and truly desire to help patients. You can access their link on the right hand side of the website under “resources.” We need more doctors and professionals to become educated as this isn’t going away.
