May is International Lyme Disease Awareness Month, a chance for Lyme patients, activists and educators to share information about Lyme and other tick-borne diseases.

Each year the LDAA curates May Lyme Awareness Month, a whole month of activities, campaigns, education, fundraising and more. This year we have partnered with our friends at TICNA (Tick-Borne Illness Community Network Australia) and Conquering Chronic Illness (CCI).

Each microorganism (fungi, bacteria, virus, parasite, amoeba, mold, etc) has a unique and specific frequency. When you transmit more of this same frequency to the microorganism with a Rife machine, it causes structural stress, and the pathogen is disabled or dies.

We’re giving away Leonie Shanahan’s book Lyme Disease Sucks: The Trauma, The Truth and the Triumph.
Leonie Shanahan‘s journey from being a vibrantly active and dynamic speaker and organic gardener, to a woman struggling to get out of bed and function, was a long and hard fall.

“We don’t have Lyme disease in this country!” the medical fraternity said.
Undeterred, Leonie was not about to give up. She refused to fill her body with drugs and instead went on a journey of discovering alternate therapies to rebuild her mind, body, and energetic spirit.

We’re giving away Australian Lyme Crimes: A Global Disgrace
In this ground-breaking book, Julie Mellae describes her own harrowing Lyme journey, and interweaves this with the untold truth around Australia’s involvement in the creation and testing of bioweapons. She takes a look at Lyme disease’s origins, the reasoning behind its denial and negligence by Australian doctors sworn to the Hippocratic Oath.

We look at the action of governments and their various instrumentalities, which on the one hand seek to exploit sections of their own populations while at the same time resorting to manipulating decisions and laws for their own self-protection.

*** And more to be confirmed!!! ***
