Borrelia miyamotoi rash is breaking the myth that rashes caused by borreliosis (Lyme disease) must expand beyond 5 cm.

CanLyme has questioned the self-policing of physicians for years as it protects bad nonsense – NOW CHANGE MAY HAPPEN? Are our politicians listening?
[CanLyme Note: This is not isolated to Ontario, it is Canada and world-wide. Many provinces and countries have given the right to medical colleges and associations to self-police.

“It is all in your head”. An assessment that is all too familiar to many patients with little understood emergent diseases such as ME, PANS or Lyme. Together with the rise of complex chronic illnesses caused by stealth pathogens, we witness a rise of the invention of so-called ‘somatic disorders’. This is of concern to both patients, who are often declared to Continues →

With the formation of the Lyme Borreliosis Society of BC in 1989 by Continues →

Research has shown us that their tests are not capable of detecting all the known strains of Lyme borreliosis. If you do not have the correct test for all the strains you have no idea of true prevalence. The government knows this and should properly Continues →
