When Antibiotics Fail: Lyme Disease and Rife Machines, with Critical Evaluation of Leading Alternative Therapies: 1
WHY RIFE MACHINES? Lyme Disease is caused by Borrelia Burgdorferi, a spirochete bacteria similar to the bacteria that causes Syphilis . Lyme Disease is known as the Great Imitator It can masquerade as Attention Deficit Disorder , Chronic Fatigue Syndrome , Fibromyalgia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder , Alzheimers Disease , Schizophrenia , Depression , Multiple Sclerosis , arthritis , heart conditions, and more. The July, 2004 issue of Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients indicates that Lyme Disease is thought to be the fastest spreading infectious disease in the world, with more than 200,000 new cases per year in the United States alone. Lyme Disease tests are notoriously inaccurate, leading to rampant under-diagnosis of the disease (See Appendix A ). But even the people who are lucky enough to receive an accurate diagnosis do not always respond to antibiotic therapy. Aggressive antibiotic therapy, applied by a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor (LLMD), sometimes fails to provide a cure. Many patients take antibiotics for years, often in combinations of two or three drugs simultaneously yet in some cases the infection becomes chronic anyway, and numerous Lyme Disease sufferers end up staying sick, losing their jobs, getting dropped by insurance companies, going broke, and losing hope. These monumentally discouraging obstacles facing Lyme Disease sufferers have led many of them to explore the rife machine treatment option, a promising electromagnetic therapy which often works after antibiotics fail.
