Dr. B's Presentation About Testing & Treatment

Post by RitaA » Thu 24 May 2012 7:35

I just came across this YouTube presentation of Dr. Burrascano speaking about Lyme disease testing and treatment. It was apparently recorded on May 22, 2012 and he does touch upon the history of Lyme disease, as well as the new culture test.

The sound quality isn't great.

A few things I remember from the 53-minute, 10-second recording of Dr. Burrascano’s presentation:

Blood levels of antibiotics should be checked, and may explain why some patients respond to a certain treatment and others do not.

Exercise (never two days in a row) is an immune booster. Get adequate sleep and rest.

Lifestyle: diet, sleep, exercise, a positive attitude, etc. are key to recovery.

Don’t become Lyme disease obsessed.
