This is a really exciting newsletter because we have so much to announce. First, we'd like to announce our 2009 annual conference on autism, Lyme disease, multiple infections and chronic illness called: "From Roadblocks to Recovery." (Formerly The Lyme-Autism Connection Conference) Read more about our exciting lineup of speakers.
In addition, I am pleased to announce that in partnership with Zenworks Productions, we have put our 2007 and 2008 general session presentations online for FREE unlimited access. We have also made available our "Physicians Training" presentations for physicians at a very low price. Please check out: http://lymeinducedautism.com/presentations.html
and enjoy learning from our incredible speakers. You will see the high quality presentations that our conferences provide. I hope that this will encourage you to attend our 2009 conference this June to be there in person.
From Roadblocks to Recovery - June 25 - 28 Scottsdale, Arizona
Out of the 2008 Lyme-Autism Connection Conference came a new shift: we will increase our education for practitioners. Why? Families tell us they may see limited progress in the various treatment protocols, but they see a big jump in results when they work with an integrative practitioner who possesses cutting edge education. Several doctors who were first time attendees at the 2008 Lyme-Autism Connection conference said they were just "blown away" by the many aspects of the epidemic and the speed at which new information is coming to the forefront. Patients who attended had a full toolbox of information to take back to their doctors.
Data shows a growing number of families are affected by autism or by Lyme disease, and many children have both diagnoses. This conference focuses on intermingling traditional and alternative biomedical treatment for children and adults affected by Borrelia, multiple-infections and/or autism spectrum disorder, asperger's syndrome, and ADHD. You will hear presentations about environmental insults which exasperate symptoms in these disorders. You will hear presentations with the newest scientific data. We are also able to provide CME credits. Additionally, we estimate about 40 vendors.
Conference participants tell us we are "10 years ahead" of other conferences because of the vast amount of cutting edge information provided. So join us for our 2009 conference, "From Roadblocks to Recovery."

LIA Foundation teams up with CHOICE
Due to our complimentary missions, the LIA Foundation is teaming up with CHOICE for our 2009 conference. CHOICE was founded by Linda Hemming, a long time advocate for alternative medicine..a Lyme patient herself. Please read there mission and meet them at the 2009 conference "From Roadblocks to Recovery".
CHOICE is the voice of Arizona's patients and doctors, an organization born in Arizona in 2007 to ensure that a wide array of choices is available in medical care. http://www.ChoiceForHealthonline.com
(website coming soon) CHOICE advocates for:
- Ability for doctors to pursue advanced treatments that go beyond the conventional Standard of Care which is shaped in large measure by the pharmaceutical industry.
- Emphasis on prevention and attainment of good health, not just "disease management" with costly interventions and drug prescriptions.
- Recognition that food is our best medicine. We need access to food that is free of pesticides/hormones/steroids, free of genetic modification, grown in nutrient rich soil. We need unfettered access to unprocessed food that has not been denatured for longer shelf life.
- Availability of a wide range of supplements including herbs, vitamins, and homeopathic remedies.
- Truth in labeling so we know when MSG and other additives are present in foods.
- Ability to accept or deny vaccinations for our children; those who feel vaccines and their components contribute to health problems should not be threatened with jail if they choose not to vaccinate.
- Full disclosure about medical microchips that would be implanted in the name of "safety."
We hope that you like the new things we are doing this year. See you in June!
