World Health Day: Impact of Lyme Disease

April 7th is World Health Day. Each year the World Health Organization chooses a topic of focus for World Health Day and this year’s focus is Vector-borne diseases. Vector-borne disease is the term commonly used to describe an illness caused by an infectious microbe that is transmitted to people by blood-sucking insects or arachnids such as ticks, mites mosquitoes, fleas, lice, biting flies and bugs. According to the Center for Disease Control, Lyme disease is the most commonly reported vector-borne illness in the United States – in 2012, it was the 7th most common Nationally Notifiable disease. Also according to the Center for Disease Control, Lyme Disease has resulted in over 20,000 annual reported human cases in the US in recent years and in 2012, 95% of Lyme disease cases were reported concentrated heavily in the northeast and upper Midwest.

We will be interviewing Anita Bains who has been working with Lyme patients, offers workshops on Lyme Disease and is co-authoring an upcoming book on Lyme Disease. So listen to the Spiritual Spectra Talk Show on April 7th at 12:30pm to learn how to identify the symptoms of Lyme Disease, the impact of it on your body and what can be done to alleviate it.
