My Father's Mystery Illness

The best treatment for that condition [chronic Lyme], says Shapiro, is a surgical one: an ``Internet-ectomy.''

http://www.newsweek.com/2010/08/24/the-mysteries-of-lyme-disease.html#comments

A poorly written article, but at least they quoted Dr. Brian Fallon.

Great comments from people. And yeah where is there evidence that Bb is gone after short term abx. I have proof it is not - a positive PCR test(the DNA of Bb)after 3 years of abx.

So glad I had to cancel Newsweek when I got sick. They seem to print garbage anyway.

Great comments. Go for it. Newweek is highly read in a lot of doctors offices...

Hopefully they will post "the rest of the story" as Paul used to say.

There is a good thread on this topic over in "General." Many, including myself, have responded to the article's author. You will find his personal email address there as well in my last post. You can email him directly there.

The comments following the article are very good, but unfortunately those reading in print won't have the benefit.

Wondering if someone shouldn't just mail a copy of Under our Skin and Cure Unknown to Mr. Juskalian c/o Newsweek? We can only hope that they will offer a more balanced and accurate article in the future.

E-mailed him, but really, the existence of chronic Lyme is so unambiguously documented that anyone doing any digging at all would have to find the truth.

He simply has to be a malicious person.
