This eye-opening film investigates the untold story of the massive spread of Lyme disease throughout North America. The American Centers for Disease Control estimates 200,000 new cases of Lyme disease each year in North America -- that's more than AIDS and West Nile Virus combined. Lyme disease manifests with symptoms of virtually all known neurological and autoimmune disorders including MS, ALS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, chronic fatigue, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and autism. Delayed diagnosis results in chronic illness. Chronic Lyme disease is detectable, treatable and reversible, yet thousands are suffering due to misdiagnosis. In Canada there is no readily available effective screening or treatment for Chronic Lyme. For one of the most powerful human rights stories of the decade, do not miss this event.

Check out this trailer to get an idea of the magnitude of this powerful film:

  1. Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Burlington screening of Under our Skin -- it was a great evening.

    If you know of any groups in southern Ontario that would be interested in seeing this film, please contact us and we will do our best to make that happen. We have a window of opportunity for showing the film prior to its theatrical release in the United States this spring.

    Wishing you good health,
