--Why doctors often roll their eyes when they hear the term Lyme Disease and the controversy over testing for it.
--The astonishing number of tickborne infections that are quickly mutating with new ones that are being discovered every day.
--How tickborne disease can lead to an autoimmune disease. And how Lupus patients are often misdiagnosed when they really have an infection.
--How immune-suppressing drugs are often given that make the problem MUCH worse.
--That Rickettsia infection is far more common in Indiana than Lyme Disease and that they have to be treated differently. And how most patients who say that they have Lyme Disease actually have something else.
--Why dog owners are at a higher risk for such diseases. And why you should not allow your dog to sleep on your bed.
--How Homeopathy can make a huge difference for patients who have exhausted every antibiotic known to man.
--How getting the gut working properly is the key to rebuilding a person's immune system.
--Why Dr. Prather says no one is better at determining how to battle an infection than the body itself...IF it's given the opportunity to do so.
