I was looking on a medical web site and found an advertisement for www.lymediseasecured.com. It claims to be able to cure Lyme Disease in 7 days..

Has anyone bought into this...

Should we collectively get it and share?

I mean is it worth a try?

If this truly worked, whatever the secret cure is, this woman would come here and share it for free. I smell scam.

This kind of thing is just too good to be true. I smell some kind of vitamin c + salt protocol here.

LOL, try typing in

www.fibromyalgiacured.com

You get an identical site, just fibro substituted for Lyme, even on the cover of the "report." Scam.

Yes, this does sound similar to the ``Lyme Disease cured in 72 hours'' ads on the Internet, but no way to know, of course.

Here are a couple of links to the 72-hour ads for comparison, which I think turned out to be the Salt/C protocol (basically) which you can get for free at the Lymephotos website.
http://www.lymesdiseasetreatment.com/
http://www-lymedisease.com/

I don't see that there's a whole lot to lose by ordering this if they offer your money back. It may be important to make sure there is a valid address and contact number attached to the website, and if the product doesn't deliver what they promise, then demand your refund. They are guaranteeing the results and/or your satisfaction so nothing wrong with making them stand behind that guarantee.

I'm sure some people here will yell ``SCAM!'' right off the bat, but of course, unless they have actually ordered the protocol and know what it is, they can't really say for sure, can they? The easiest way to stop real scams that offer a refund is to bankrupt them with their own guarantee.

To me, that is much more satisfying than running around like the sky is falling just because someone might risk a whole $30. And if you happen to lose your money for some reason, thirty bucks is a drop in the bucket compared to what most of us have spent with ID docs and shrinks and orthopedic ducks, etc. that got us absolutely nowhere.

Just my humble opinion.

Would be interesting to find the people who wrote testimonials to see if they actually exist and what they have to say.

OK, I bit. I purchased the document and found it relatively uninteresting and not entirely factual.

It claims the EM rash appears in up to 80% of people - not my experience. It seems to take a position that symptoms after antibiotic treatment are possible even if the disease is completely gone.

Salt C is mentioned.

Most of the other things that it discusses are either known or things that I didn't really find all that relevant or things that seemed unlikely to me to provide any significant benefits.

You aren't missing a thing. It did not seem to me that the author really had an understanding of treatment of chronic Lyme disease.

Definitely not worth 24.47 in my opinion.

Be well

Be well,

Even funnier which I just realized is on the lyme and fibro sites for the same book, the same picture is used for the author but she has a different name??

I've asked to take advantage of their money-back offer if you are not "thrilled". We'll see if I ever hear a word....

Scott,

Does it mention the ingredients you can buy from your local store to cure your lyme? I think it said for under $50?

There are lots of things mentioned that one could buy - Salt/C for one. Beyond that, I found nothing notable.

Thanks. Sorry to see you seem to have "been had" with that deal (delivery status notification).

I factored the likely "scam" into my purchase decision... [Smile] I didn't expect the money-back guarantee to work - but then I should not jump too quickly to conclude that - maybe it will happen... [Smile]

Isn't there an online version of the Better Business Bureau? I would definitely report them.

That's why we need to be extra careful what is being pitched ANYWHERE.

Sorry you had to lose your money, Scott. But, thanks for checking it out.

Oh, you can also report it to your credit card company and have them reverse or cancel the charges.

I tried that other book which had pretty much nothing but the salt/c protocol - and did get my money back.

I think Lyme Disease could be cured in 7 days - it would require turning off all cell phone towers, transformers, satellites, radio, etc...

...but humans like to make basic living difficult in the name of 'technology'. Yay.
