Dr. Burrascano in Ridgefield CT
Dr. Joseph Burrascano and Dr. Eva Sapi spoke in Ridgefield, CT on May 22, 2012. Here is a video of Dr. Burrascano speaking on diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease. This talk is especially important as he speaks of lyme culture testing and the new culture test being done at Advanced Laboratories in Sharon Hill, PA. If we are lucky, the talk by Eva Sapi will also be put online. This free event was sponsored by the Ridgefield Lyme Disease Task Force.
I particularly identify with Dr. Burrascano's belief that this is a two-pronged fight. One to kill the pathogen, the second to promote the immune system. It is good to see Dr. Burrascano speak so strongly and clearly about supportive measures for lyme disease. These include gut ecology support, methylation support (RVK), mitochondrial support, and diet, among other things. (Personally I do not get the exercise thing.) Most doctors do not pay a whole lot of attention to these matters, preferring instead to just giving the striker drugs. Often the patients suffer very much from this and have to stop treatment. I prefer the clinical experience of Dr. Dale Guyer that tends towards preparing the patient for drug treatments in the very same way as articulated by Dr. Burrascano (if not even more pronounced and in depth). Dr. Guyer has the right ideas in approaching these illnesses.
Someone should tell Dr. Burrascano about MAF 314.
