Under Our Skin: The Untold Story of Lyme Disease

Story at-a-glance -

  • Chronic Lyme disease is called the "great imitator" because it is often misdiagnosed as another condition such as Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, ALS, Alzheimer’s disease, or anxiety. Misdiagnosis is a common experience for patients with chronic Lyme disease and treatments that work for these other illnesses are not appropriate for treating Lyme disease
  • The award-winning documentary “Under Our Skin” exposes the hidden story of Lyme disease, one of the most serious and controversial epidemics of our time; the film exposes a troubling picture of a health care system that is far too willing to put profits ahead of patients
  • Lyme disease rates are climbing across the U.S. and internationally, and have reached epidemic levels in many areas; the disease is caused by the spirochete bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi, which is transmitted to humans and animals by ticks and possibly mosquitoes, spiders and mites
  • Borrelia burgdorferi, a cousin to the bacteria causing syphilis, has become very adept at hiding and surviving in human tissues, in part due to its corkscrew shape allowing it to burrow into tissues, and it’s ability to take on different forms, such as cysts, in order to escape the immune system, evade antibiotics, and hide from detection by blood tests
  • People suffering from chronic Lyme disease struggle to get help because some government agencies, insurance companies and powerful medical associations organizations have united to destroy physicians’ credibility and practice when they try to help sick patients and expose the truth
