Lyme Disease – The Most Misdiagnosed Disease in America


by Loretta Lanphier, NP, CN, HHP, CH

(The Best Years in Life) Who would ever think that the bite of a poppyseed sized tick could wreck so much havoc on the body? A tick that is now believed to contain many other bacteria organisms causing people to have a myraid of symptoms that quickly evolve into chronic disease. Who would have ever guessed this little critter known as the deer tick would be the source of a very mysterious and debilatating disease? A disease with symptoms overlapping those of many other diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to name a few. The disease? Lyme Disease.

In 1981 the cause, a spiral shaped bacteria called Borrelia burgdorferi (B. burgdorferi) was discovered, yet not many in conveniontal medicine knew what to do with this newly discovered bacteria. This spirochete is now known to be able to invade every organ in the body. It has now become far more prevalent than AIDS and West Nile virus and is showing up in states where Lyme has never been known to exist. We now know that isn’t just carried by ticks. It can be found in semen, vaginal fluid, breast milk, saliva, tear ducts and even the blood supply. Co-infections are growing and Lyme is now recognized by some to be a mutating disease. There is also suggestion that we need to label Lyme as an STD because teens are giving it to each other through unprotected sex.

Even though Lyme Disease is now a world-wide health epidemic and because doctors are not quick to look for Lyme, patients are continually told that their symptoms are not Lyme related. Doctors who actually test for and treat Lyme Disease are being ostrasized by the medical community and many choose to go out of business. Correct diagnosis in the initial stages of Lyme is extremely important to the success of treatment yet many doctors don’t seem to feel it necessary to even ascertain the possibility of a Lyme’s Disease disgnosis until symptoms have become pronounced and thus very difficult to treat effectively. At this point the disease has become chronic with life-lasting health concerns.


Many people have the same story in that they have spent thousands of dollars and it has taken years, sometimes 15+, to get a correct diagnosis of Chronic Lyme’s Disease. Some of these people never had a bite and never had a rash. Unfortunately the medical community has a history of misdiagnosing the symptoms of Lyme’s as emotional or psychological illness.

The 2009 video “Under Our Skin“. Under Our Skin exposes the hidden epidemic of Lyme disease and reveals how our corrupt health care system is failing to address one of the most serious illnesses of our time. In the 1970s, a mysterious and deadly illness began infecting children in a small town in Connecticut. Today it’s a global epidemic! Please take the time to watch, listen and learn about this disease that often goes misdiagnosed. (There are commercials but please don’t let them stop you from watching this important video). Length is 1 hour and 44 minutes.
