I was at our recent lyme disease support group and one of our members did a small study on lyme disease and autism, what a breakthrough, his son at about six months old started showing signs of autism, was told by mayo Dr.s that his son was autistic and would not take it for a answer. Found five other children between the age of one and ten and had them all tested for lyme disease with the western blot test. All came back positive for lyme disease and were put on antibiotics long term by I.v. All have science shown complete to remarkable improvement. With the best being the sooner they started the treatment. It is time a larger survey is done and keep the medical moneymakers away and maybe we can stop this disease.
