I just saw this video regarding Lyme Disease on Facebook, and wanted to post the link immediately! This is the first time, in a long time, I've heard such promising news regarding Lyme Disease.
A Wisconsin company has developed a T-cell based test for diagnosing Lyme Disease. Dr. Bradley Bush speaks volumes, as he's interviewed on a local TV station, describing this ground-breaking test and the mis-perceptions about Lyme Disease. He describes very well, in a short amount of time, some of the valuable research information I've found regarding this insidious disease! Plus, he explains why the new iSpot Lyme Test is such an important development for both doctors and patients.
Dr. Bush tells how 300,000 new cases of Lyme Disease are contracted every year. He tells how 60% of people who test positive for LD are inaccurately diagnosed as negative, and how tell-tale signs such as chills, fever and bull's-eye rash, don't always present themselves. Because of this, he asks us to have a heightened awareness of new and unusual symptoms. He also tells us how Lyme Disease can be contracted during each of the 12 months of the year.
In the video, Dr. Bush then goes on to describe the iSpot Lyme Test as being able to identify with multiple parts of the disease. If found to be true, this component alone is a huge discovery! He then goes on to tell how the test is able to target the presence of Lyme vectors, and monitor treatment efficacy, which are also two monumental developments!
It is with great excitement that I share this important video link with you, today.
