Lyme videos - the even bigger collection!!

 I posted a master list of Lyme videos and movies a few weeks ago. Since then, the list has grown, as people have added to it. Here's the latest accumulated, aggregated list. You could spend a week watching them. As you are watching, chances are good that someone or some team is shooting or editing another one. It's kind of amazing how many videos there are, yet how little new research is being done by the powers that be (Federal US bucks, anyway. Other countries are doing better work.) Don't forget to take a break and watch some comedies once in a while. As Dr Joe Burrascano says, the people who get better are the people who don't make their lives all about Lyme disease. Remember to do the things you love, have social time however you can get it, even if it's via phone/Skype calls, having friends visit you, etc. And don't talk about your physical problems all the time, if friends and family do come over, alright?

Also, do an Internet or YouTube search of Lyme or Lyme + video + the names of the doctors involved with Lyme disease to find many additional videos. 

When I did this with my name I was surprised to find 8 videos.

The following review is by Scott Forsgren from his BetterHealthGuy blog
The Lyme Altar is a new documentary with a focus on the struggles of Lyme disease.  The film was released in August 2014 and is available on  A trailer of the film can be viewed on (  It is a collaboration between Gordon Medical Associates (GMA) and Touchable Stories Productions.  I personally enjoyed the powerhouse healers that shared their insights in the film.  They included Joseph Burrascano MD, Eric Gordon MD, Neil Nathan MD, Wayne Anderson ND, Elizabeth Large ND and more.  

The complexities of diagnosing and treating Lyme disease are described in the film including a review of some of the newest laboratory tests available.  Given that only 17% of patients remember a tick bite and as low as 36% may have a classic bull's-eye rash, newer diagnostic tools are critically needed.  Patients are clearly not losing their minds, depressed, or lying, and yet, without definitive testing, this is often what they are told.  Fortunately, we have practitioners and healers like those at GMA that view things very differently, believe patients, and recognize that it is the "richness of the story that sometimes gives us the clues". 

Dr. Eric Gordon eloquently defined chronic Lyme disease as a "bizarre interaction between a very complex microorganism and a very complex human being".  Dr. Elizabeth Large reminded patients that we often measure ourselves by how much we do and that it is often important to "surrender to whatever your body needs at that time and not judge it."  I was fortunate to have been interviewed for the film and shared my thoughts by saying, "It's a really tough journey; it's a lot of work, and I think part of the recovery has to be about not so much looking at what you've lost but at what you've gained and the positive things that have come out of it."  

Dr. Neil Nathan shared, "Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, the epidemic of Autism, and Lyme disease all kind of showed up about the same time.  I am quite sure that means something.  I have attributed it to a combination of growing environmental toxicities and the growing thoughtless use of electromagnetic energies."  Both Dr. Nathan and Dr. Gordon highlighted the significance of environmental chemicals in chronic illness.  

For many with chronic Lyme disease, it can often be a lonely journey.  The Lyme Altar shares the struggles of patients in their attempts to get diagnosed and to recover their health.  While there are no magic bullets, there is much power in understanding that there is a community of people with shared experiences.  We are not alone.  Not only are we not alone, but there is great hope in knowing that open-minded practitioners and healers are working hard to advance treatment options and to improve the quality of life in those recovering from chronic illness.  Here's to your health....
