You can watch a series of interviews with this tirelessly working retired medical doctor Alan MacDonald here, about the biology of Lyme.

Part 1: This is a 30 minute video with Dr. Alan MacDonald, a retired M.D. and board certified in Anatomic Pathology and Clinical Pathology. This revealing interview from May 2013 (three parts) covers many misunderstandings associated with Lyme disease:

  • Brains and eyes as infection sanctuary sites
  • Cloaking of spirochetes in complementary proteins
  • Borrelia lifeforms: biofilms, communities, persisters, liposomes
  • Syphilis spirochetes and similararities
  • Spirochetes similar in biofunction as sperm
  • Anatomy of a tick assault
  • Six ways of evading the human immune system
  • The CDC and Borrelia biofilms
  • Atomic force microscopy: confirms Borrelia biofilms
  • 101 strains of Borrelia, 150 global genotypes
  • Babesiosis types
  • Why strain variation makes testing inaccurate
