    Hi, all.

    Thanks. When I googled mold on here I ran across some information on Dr. Shoemaker. It was the first time I had heard of him. You have helped me in the past and I do appreciate the information that you post on here. I did check that link out. I wish I could go but I can't. I am still sick but the Dr's are taking one step at a time. The infectious disease doctor just ran some specific blood test and if he does not find anything then off to a enviromental toxic specialist. In my state the enviromental toxic doctors are almost imposible to find at least the ones that will take my insurance. Thanks again for being so supportive you are greatly appreciated.

    Is this the Dr Ritchie Shoemaker you are talking about?

    Dr. Shoemaker believes you can have living Borrelia bacteria in your central nervous system that “do no harm whatsoever” and should “just be ignored”!

    This outrageous statement alone is the highest form of treason to Lyme patients. When even the “LLMD’s” say that active infection with living, multiplying, T-cell-invading, Myelin-eating spirochetes is often “harmless”, what hope do Lymies have to receive long-term antibiotic treatment? Mr. Shoemaker claims that if he diagnoses you with blurry vision on his VCS test (“Visual Contrast Sensitivity”), that this is almost always caused by “chronic neurotoxins caused by infection”, and that his “detoxing” can in 90% of cases greatly help you. Shoemaker further says that when his Lyme treatments don’t work, that it must be due to “mold exposure”, and that “almost everyone with Lyme is exposed to mold”. My advice as a self-treating, 90% recovered chronic Lyme neuroborreliosis patient to Dr. Shoemaker is to lay off the cookies and cigarettes and take a very long hike – perhaps that’ll detoxify him.
