Thank You Dr. Phil – Video of Dr. Phil: “Deadly Consequences” (04/13/12)

Dr. Phil “Deadly Consequences” Aired on April 13, 2012


I will have to say I was a little nervous and skeptical about the Lyme disease episode being viewed by millions. I was hoping it wasn’t one-sided and showing the IDSA as the victor. I just finished watching the episode and although I wish more information was exposed on the show such as coinfections, it was still a win for us Lymies.

I applaud Dr. Phil for exposing the world to Chronic Lyme disease. Chronic or Late-Stage Lyme is all too real and a living nightmare. It will change lives in the worst way and break the strongest person down. Thank you Dr. Phil for educating the public and exposing our suffering. I hope to see more media coverage of Lyme disease in the future.

A HUGE thank you to Brooke Landau, Stephanie Vostry, Dr. Phil’s staff member and Chitra Bhakti, MD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor/ LLMD).




In case you missed the Dr. Phil show today here is the episode and some other footage.

Again, thank you so much for spreading Lyme awareness. We cannot do this alone. This is just one small step forward for the Lyme community.
