Many of our lyme docs have been persecuted for treating Lyme Disease. Dr Burrascano, Dr Jones, Dr Hoffmann..the list goes on and on. They all get in trouble for treating with long term abx..or for even saying we have lyme.
It is a long long story why, it has to do with the cover up of the IDSA’s flawed guidelines that tell insurance companies how we should be treated for Lyme. Well their guidelines say most cases are acute and easily treated with only for three weeks with Doxy.. (So I guess when we dont get better after that..then its not supposed to be Lyme anymore.) So when drs see us still sick and try to keep treating with more aggressive therapies, the insurance companies can turn them in for not treating us “appropriately (according to their guidelines).
Well even though there was an investigation done on the idsa..and they were found to all be biased..owning stock in pharmaceutical companies and insurance companies..and they all had conflicts of interests…the guidelines ultimately never changed leaving the Lyme patient and drs who want to treat them, screwed.. So any dr that treats us long term is putting their license at risk. There for, we don’t say their names publicly. The problem is that if someone posts…so and so gives me “x” amount of abxs..in the long run it can be used against him in court…So its just a way to protect drs..
