It may seem like doctors are on the outskirts of the Lyme disease epidemic, trying to find causes and solutions to an illness that remains a mystery to the mainstream. Now, two doctors, who both suffered from Lyme disease, have come together to discuss their mutual struggles with this disease for the first time on such a widely public platform.

In episode #1081 of The People’s Pharmacy, Joe and Terry Graedon discuss What You Need to Know About Lyme Disease with Dr. Bill Rawls, author of Unlocking Lyme, and Dr. Neil Spector, associate professor of medicine, pharmacology and cancer biology at Duke University Medical Center, and author of Gone in a Heartbeat.

Lyme disease is finally catching the attention it deserves in the national media spotlight as a serious epidemic. With the rise in tick populations forecast this summer, it’s critical to raise awareness about the threat of Lyme, but just as important is to discuss ways to overcome Lyme disease. This week, The People’s Pharmacy, a nationally syndicated radio program, set out to do just that.

Listen to these compelling topics:

  • Lyme Disease Stories: Both Dr. Rawls and Dr. Spector suffered from chronic Lyme disease, each experiencing varied symptoms of the disease.
  • Lyme Disease Basics: The origin, transmission, and symptoms of both acute and chronic Lyme disease
  • Lyme Disease Diagnosis: The tests and the frequent misdiagnoses involved in any patient’s health journey.
  • Taking Control – How patients should take control of their health.
