Denise Ryan has been suffering with Lyme disease, pneumonia, Epstein-Barr virus, gastroparesis, chronic gastritis, candida, strep and clostridia infections, among other things and is seeking funds to pay for urgent medical treatment in the US.

Through a crowdfunding page and gigs she’s raised €70,000 but needs €100,000 to get the treatment. A great selection of Irish artists will play for her cause on Thursday. If you can’t make it, you can donate anyway.

    Hi, so I’ve seen this and funded to help but what I don’t understand is why the state is not covering this expense?

    1. Saveyourmoney

      The state won’t cover the cost because the founder and medical director of the ‘clinic’ in Seattle she’s hoping to attend recommends the use of tai chi, meditation and bleach enemas as treatments. Lyme disease is treated with antibiotics for no more that 4 weeks. Treatment for any longer has not been shown to be of any clinical benefit. Chronic Lyme disease is not recognised by the medical community. It’s a term used by charlatans to take advantage of sick people.

      Meet the team at Sophia Health Institute:

      A Critical Appraisal of “Chronic Lyme Disease”:

        Ok but there is no doubt that this is a very sick young woman, has the Irish state and medical community just washed its hands of her illness? Do they believe that after 4 weeks of antibiotics any further symptoms are psychosomatic? Do they consider her untreatable?

        1. Saveyourmoney

          Hard to say. She might be missing out on a real diagnosis because this clinic has convinced her that only they have the treatment. These clinics prey on the sick and vulnerable, particularly on those who have struggled to get a diagnosis. This clinic is going to expose poor Denise to potentially harmful long-term antibiotics and other questionable treatments while the Irish public fund it.
