*** NEXT MEETINGS ***  

  • December:  THERE WILL BE NO DECEMBER MEETING
  • January 23, 2012 - SPEAKER:  we will start off 2012 with a physician researcher from NeuroSciences who will discuss research regarding immune responses that are useful in confirming active infection in Lyme disease.  They have studied the cytokines (inflammatory markers) and other indicators to develop a test called MyLymeImmuneID.  Right now, this is the only test of it's kind that can indicate current infection and it is covered by most insurance companies. Neurosciences focuses heavily on dysfunctions in the HPA axis (Hypothalmus/Pituitary/Adrenal glands) which happen to be very common in chronic lyme patients resulting in symptoms like sleep disruption, anxiety and more, which, if addressed, can make a significant difference in symptoms and ability of the immune system to function properly.  Speaker details to be announced shortly. See: https://www.neurorelief.com/index.php?p=cms&cid=182&pid=69  - for online webinars including one on MyLymeImmuneID.
