Vitality Magazine, and was flabbergasted to read that Canada is in denial about Lyme disease, testing their citizens, and does not offer treatment. Doctors can actually get in HUGE trouble for treating patients; many of whom must travel internationally to seek medical intervention. (I have verified this finding with a Canadian friend). Lyme disease testing can sometimes be difficult to prove positive .. and is often missed; tragically this has led to untreated patients developing a malady of horrific conditions such as: multiple sclerosis, ALS, rheumatoid arthritis, autism, Chron's disease, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease, ADHD, scleroderma and heart disease.
I can't comprehend, with today's easy access to medical 'information' with the click of a mouse, how such blatant denial/medical cover-up can exist. Having several acquaintances being treated for Lyme disease in the U.S.A., it's mind boggling to think of the countless cases just above our northern border that are suffering.
