Lyme Disease Quick Facts

Lyme disease is the fastest growing disease to date and many doctors are calling it a pandemic.  The CDC estimates that 300,000 new cases of Lyme are reported every year.

Because Lyme is so difficult to diagnose, this estimate is grossly inaccurate and underestimated.

It's critical that you understand what Lyme disease is, how it's transmitted and how to get a proper diagnosis.

Borrelia, the bacteria that causes Lyme disease, is found in every state in the U.S. and in every country around the world.

There are over 300 strains of Borrelia known to date and only 1 strain is tested for.

Lyme disease hides in the body causing it to be very difficult to detect and treat.

I've put together this chart to highlight some key facts about Lyme.

If you think you might have Lyme disease, don't waste time, find a Lyme literate physician as soon as possible.  Time is an important factor in healing completely.
