I felt this announcement was important enough to post in the medical section

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

IMPORTANT NOTICE FROM On The Marc Media:

We'd like to share some really important news. Two weeks ago Oprah's Dr. Oz interviewed Andy Abrahams Wilson, producer of Under Our Skin and Washington D.C. ABC-7's Medical Reporter Kathy Fowler. They talked for about 45 minutes about the film and the controversy surrounding Lyme diseae. We will let you know when the show airs in a few weeks on XM's Oprah and Friends network.

Dr. Oz wants to hear from people with Lyme disease. The website is below:
https://www.oprah.com/plugform.jsp?plugId=255279&referer=http://www.oprah.com/oafhost/moz Please email Dr. Oz.

Dr. Oz was extremely impressed with the documentary saying he and his entire family couldn't stop watching Under Our Skin. Dr. Oz is a regular on Oprah, appearing once a week. He is showing interest in getting this very important topic on Oprah. When the time comes, we will give you contact information to email Oprah's people. We want to encourage them to do this story on Oprah. Lots of positive comments please. The radio show will air in the coming weeks. You will get an email letting everyone know how they can listen.

Dr. Mehmet Oz is highly respected in the medical community. There is a short bio below:


Dr. Mehmet Oz
Dr. Mehmet Oz is professor and vice chairman of surgery at Columbia University in New York City, director of the Cardiovascular Institute and founder and director for the Complementary Medicine Program at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. He is a regular contributor to The Oprah Winfrey Show and Oprah.com.

Hi,

I'd like someone to post the link where it says / implies that we made it to the main "TV" show.

Best wishes,

For medical advice related to Lyme disease, please see an ILADS physician.

It would be great if this for the TV program, but something tells me it isn't. It is likely the XM radio program.

Oprah usually sidelines all controversial issues by relegating them to her XM radio show rather the TV show. She has said many times on her XM radio program that there are "some things" that her TV audience just aren't ready or willing to hear. In part, that is why started the radio program.

I'd love to be wrong about this;)

The first step is the radio show and they are hoping from there....with enough positive feedback from all of you after the radio show, that this will encourage them to have a lyme show on Oprah

this is what I posted-
"I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease this past July 4. I have worked my entire career in a hospital, much of that time serving as a Patient Advocate, advising others how to traverse the medical world to receive the treatment that they need. When I was diagnosed, I was referred out by my primary physician as Lyme is not an area of expertise for him. That was when I entered my medical nightmare. I have been poked, prodded, questioned and referred some more. I have had over 40 vials of blood drawn in 3 months! My Lyme titre and Western Blot have been repeated 3 times since the original results. They remain positive. However, despite repeated positive results, I have now had 2 quailified physicians tell me that they don't think I am suffering from Lyme Disease because I did not improve with 4 weeks of treatment. It has been a daily struggle to continue to function, and I was finally forced to seek treatment from an " unconventional practiotioner" to get the medical care I depserately need. My life has changed drastically since I became ill and I am at a complete loss to understand why the medical world simply refuses to treat Lyme as the serious and debilitating disease it truly is."
