Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our vision is a world where no disease is politicized to the detriment of those who suffer. Millions of people suffer long-term ill health from the bite of an infected tick but cannot get properly diagnosed or treated because the Lyme disease case definition was falsified in 1994.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

TRUTHCURES will have accomplished its goals when, 1) an accurate Lyme disease case definition and scientifically valid diagnostic tests have replaced the current paradigm; 2) people are able to easily get an accurate diagnosis and receive appropriate medical care that is covered by insurance; 3) those who have suffered for years or decades under an oppressive public health regime that denies their illness are validated and compensated.

We are seeking legal representation while also conducting educational campaigns, media outreach, and activism.

TRUTHCURES has a network of volunteers from a variety of backgrounds and professions who collaborate to generate ideas for action.

We have conducted numerous meetings with elected representatives in Washington, D.C. over the last several years. In 2017 we met with health and legal staffers for 75% of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Also in 2017, we met with the Designated Federal Officer for the soon-to-be established federal Tick-Borne Disease Working Group, and later released a video exposing the corruption inherent within the working group and its leadership. Our "Lyme Cryme" video from 2015 has been viewed more than 60,000 times. Most recently, we have been in contact with law enforcement officials who encouraged us to pursue legal representation. In doing so, we have have formulated multiple legal theories that are supported by a massive database of documentation.
