Lyme has reached epidemic proportions in Wellfleet. I was surprised there were only two dozen people in the audience. I was also distressed that no one from Outer Cape Health Services showed up to listen to this eloquent speaker who offered hope to victims of Lyme.
One of the particularly interesting treatments Katina described was Rife Technology, an alternative perhaps, but something that seems to work for some people, although not approved by the FDA. (She devotes a full chapter of Out of the Woods to Rife.)
During the Q&A, one audience member said, “I don’t feel like I’ll ever be out of the woods. Do you feel like you’re cured?”
“I do,” Katina responded. She told us she had spent $15,000 to 20,000 to get well.
Katina provided the audience with a lot of information on Lyme, and the co-infections we need to worry about on Cape Cod. I will reread through my notes for a future post. Lyme disease is out of control here. We need to demand longer treatment, more “Lyme-literate” doctors, and the acknowledgement that this is a pandemic and should be treated as such by the Center for Disease Control.
