I am writing this in response to last week’s article on Lyme Disease. I appreciate the work of Gary Barr getting the word out about Lyme Disease, which is becoming epidemic in the area. I would like only to add to the “Looking at Lyme Disease” box. Under where to get more information he suggests the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Web site. I feel that you will get much more useful and non-political information at both of the following Web sites: natcaplyme.org and ILADS.org.
On the ILADS Web site you can find Dr. Joseph Burrascano’s treatment guidelines — 37 pages of pure gold! (At the Web site home page, click on “Treatment Guidelines.”)
