NatCapLyme - Loudoun Chapter

NatCapLyme - Loudoun Chapter

The Loudoun County chapter of the National Capital Lyme Disease Association, a support group for both patients and caregivers affected by Lyme Disease and other tick-borne diseases.

The National Capital Lyme and Tick-Borne Disease Association is committed to helping patients diagnosed with tick-borne infections through education, support, and review of public policies concerning these diseases. We encourage individuals to advocate for themselves in their goal to regain their health. The National Capital Lyme and Tick-Borne Disease Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

[06/25/17]   There is no Lyme support group meeting today. The next one will be next month. Please pass along the message.



This is an excellent piece by our friend #DavidMichaelConner. Thank you for articulating so many of the questions we with Lyme ask everyday. #Lyme #Epidemic



This is how small deer ticks are right now! The ticks below are at the larva stage, and after a blood meal, will become nymphs. Because of the warm weather, many ticks are already in the nymph stage.

Please see our link for more information on how to avoid these tiny ticks which can ruin and take lives. #Lyme #Epidemic #AlltickDiseases

From Australia: Many people are getting #Lyme disease and yet--

"A statement from Australia's chief medical officer, Brendan Murphy, released by the Commonwealth Government's Department of Health, says "to date, the organism that causes Lyme disease has not been found in Australia".


Dr. Richard Horowitz

My new book, "How Can I Get Better? An Action Plan for Treating Resistant Lyme and Chronic Disease" is now available earlier than expected on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I received the first set of books in my medical office yesterday! This edition contains important scientific updates on Lyme, associated co-infections, and a new chapter on cutting edge protocols discussing “persister protocols” like Dapsone, for those failing traditional treatments. “How Can I Get Better?” also contains updates on my 16-point medical model and how it impacts chronic diseases (such as Alzheimer’s, Autism, ALS, and autoimmune diseases like MS), discussing how infections and toxins are underlying these different chronic diseases, explaining what you can do about them. There is also a detailed addendum for health care practitioners on how to prescribe classical and natural/integrative therapies to help patients who are still chronically ill. Please consider getting a copy for yourself, your family, and your health care providers to educate them on the emerging science behind Lyme and associated diseases. I am having success with the new protocols described in the book, and wanted to make sure they were available to everyone.
Blessings to you all on your journey to health and wellness.

Whatever stress, pain or hatred you're feeling...take a deep breath and let it all go. One negative thought can ruin ten positive get rid of all that negative energy before it drains you.
Train yourself to stay encouraged no matter what comes your way.


Well said...

Some days just deal with daily stuff , which is usually medical related, pain, getting through the day no time to think about other issues.
Then the days of horrific pain, migraines and in bed medicating . Maybe ER. Then the days u get 1-3 hours if lucky to do things.

Shower, laundry maybe lite cleaning. And tired again. So you lay down body tired but you are alert. That's when the dreaming happens. How it used to be. What was lost. Will I ever get it back? Will I ever be the same. No one gets it. Tired of explaining. Just want to blink and things go back to how it used to be.
