The Road Back Foundation is dedicated to preserving the life's work of the late Dr. Thomas McPherson-Brown, a rheumatologist who believed in infectious causes for rheumatic diseases such as , rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, dermatomyositis, ankylosing spondylitis, Lyme disease, Reiter's syndrome, mixed connective tissue disease, fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis. To learn more about this life-saving, proven, safe treatment and to meet other patients who have reached remission on Dr Brown's antibiotic protocols visit: roadback.org
Dr Brown died in the late 1980's but for 50 years he had successfully treated Rheumatoid Arthritis patients with antibiotics, only in the last few years of his life was Lyme Disease found to be a bacterial infection, he realised that some of his successes may have been related to treating an undiagnosed Lyme infection.
There is a lot of interesting information on this rather long video so many striking parallels to what I have learnt about Lyme Disease and the problems getting the medical profession to be open minded.
I was interested to hear Dr Brown talk about the treatments for Rheumatoid Arthritis prior to 1949 when it was considered that it could have an infectious origin. Sadly the onset of steroids in 1949 changed the treatment protocols significantly. Now most treatments are aimed at reducing the symptoms whilst no longer seeking to cure the cause of the illness, in other words palliative care, again much the sames as is happening in many other illnesses including chronic Lyme Disease symptoms unless you are fortunate as I was to find a doctor to treat as per www.ilads.org
