To post the name or names of LLMDs. Period.

http://flash.lymenet.org/ubb/ultimatebb.php/topic/1/108368

Doesn't matter if they wrote a book, or they're speaking at a conference, or they spoke at a conference, or you're just advertising for them... DO NOT POST THEIR NAME.

Thanks... seems to be a rash of this going on.

I agree with this current policy and understand that we need as many LLMD's licensed and working as is possible given the current state of the epidemic. And the current lawsuits are a real problem.

But I also think that real advancements in medicine only come through direct confrontation with the established norms of a society.

17th century Herbalist Nicholas Culpeper, one of history's natural medicine heroes, worked tirelessly to bring herbal and folk medicine to the masses.

"During the early months of the English Civil War he was accused of witchcraft and the Society of Apothecaries tried to rein in his practice."

"The authorities were not sympathetic"

Heal Thyself By Benjamin Woolley

Galileo, Culpeper, Darwin, Copernicus etc. all confronted authority. Scientific American's March 2010 issue states ..

"One team of researchers recently completed a catalogue of some 3.3 million human gut microbe genes. Their work, led by Junjie Qin of BGIShenzhen (formerly the Beijing Genomics Institute) and published in the March 4 edition of Nature, adds to the expandingbut nowhere near completecensus of species that reside in the intestinal tract. (Scientific American is part of Nature Publishing Group.)" http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=genetics-in-the-gut

Guess what. Modern science doesn't even recognize the majority of these gene sequences!!

Naturopathic doctors have been addressing and in fact shouting to the high rafters for a century that the key to good health is good digestion.

But N.D.'s have been systematically excluded from modern medicine for... well about a century.

And now the Vermont legislature has significantly changed the playing field so that N.D.'s are more fairly compensated.

I know I'm just beating the "oh contrare" drum but I really do believe that secrecy in the long run will not help Lyme patients. So at what time will we address this issue?

More importantly, what is the plan?

WE are the boss. If we continue to keep a group of unidentified LLMD's solvent through secret referrals, we are enabling the dysfunctional medical system we all abhor.

It is naive to think that initials are not known worldwide to the people who want to know. Bookburning used to be one solution. Are we living in the 21st century?

Do you want to stay updated on science and medicine and thereby be in a position to learn and know how to help yourself or get help or where to find help?
