As numbers of diagnosed Lyme disease patients in Australia grows, the level of government and medical recognition is painfully slow in adapting to the need for information, awareness and acceptance of the problem. Bec Mills, a researcher and documentary film maker, is taking matters into her own hands and is generating a wealth of information which is accessible to all through her YouTube clips and documentaries. On my recent trip to Australia to speak at the 2013 Lyme Symposium, I spent some time with Bec. The uncut version of our interview is now available via YouTube and is shown here.
In this interview learn Dr Nicola’s opinion on:
*The transmission of Lyme; vector borne, congenital, sexual.
*Why natural medicine combined with antibiotics is the superior way to treat chronic Lyme and co infections.
*Insights to order of therapy for Lyme and co infections such as Babesia, Bartonella and Lyme.
*Symptom pictures of Babesia, Bartonella and Lyme.
*Lyme treatment helping with Autism, MS and Parkinson’s.
*Consideration for treatment of viruses
