This highly acclaimed US documentary reveals the untold story of the massive spread of Lyme disease throughout North America - "an emerging epidemic larger than AIDS". It has been discovered, that up to 50% of patients with multiple sclerosis and other neurodegenerative disorders including autism, Parkinson's, ALS, as well as chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia may actually have Chronic Lyme disease from a tick bite. It's detectable, treatable and reversible, even in its chronic form, yet thousands are suffering from misdiagnosis.
Also at the show, Jozef Krop, MD, will make two Lyme disease presentations. Dr. Krop, known internationally for his pioneering work in Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, is trained to treat Chronic Lyme disease by the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society and has many years experience with Ontario's victims of Chronic Lyme. You can visit Dr. Krop at Booth 904 (with KOS Publishing). His presentation details are below:
Lyme Disease: It's Treatment and Politics
Saturday, April 18, 4:00 - 5:00 pm, Room 203
Sunday, April 19, 3:00 - 4:00 pm, Room 203 (immediately before the film)
Dr. Krop will speak about internationally validated diagnosis and treatment protocols and what we all must do to persuade provincial and federal governments to take this growing epidemic seriously. Lyme contamination of the blood and organ donor supply is a potential public health disaster. In Canada, there is no effective screening or treatment for Chronic Lyme disease. The Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons does not recognize international diagnostic and treatment protocols and intimidates physicians willing and trained to treat Chronic Lyme disease.
And last but not least, from the author who brought us "What Part of No! Don't They Understand? Rescuing Food and Medicine from Government Abuse", medical science author Helke Ferrie of KOS Publishing will launch her new book at this year's Total Health Show: "Chronic Lyme Disease in Canada - The Persecution of Doctors Able to Treat It and the Denial of Treatment Choice to Patients". Don't miss the launch of this much-anticipated book that's sure to become an important Lyme reference. Revised and updated in September 2008, Ms. Ferrie's previous book can now be downloaded free of charge from the KOS website.
