Claritin Allergy Drug Could Hold the Key To Killing Lyme Disease

A popular drug that targets allergy symptoms could also kill off Lyme disease germs, a new study suggests.

Bike 4 Chris Lyme Disease Fundraiser

Dear Readers,

If you can help promote this Lyme Disease fundraiser which is also an excellent educational opportunity for Lyme, that would be awesome!! Marc Horowitz is biking from SF to LA in order to fundraise for his friend Chris’s Lyme treatment as Chris is very ill.

Here is a bit more about Bike4Chris:

Hi, my name is Marc Horowitz, and I am going to ride my bicycle from San Francisco to my home in Los Angeles to raise money to save my friend Chris’ life.

Chris was a healthy father who actively participated in activities with his 11 year-old son and wife before he was struck by an undefined illness 8 years ago that was recently identified as late-disseminated, or stage 3, Lyme disease. Now he is in excruciating pain and doesn’t have the energy to do anything but sit or lie down. His current health care provider, Medicare, doesn’t fully support treatment of stubborn cases of Lyme Disease.
