NEWS: Yolanda Foster's continuing struggle with neuro-Lyme
The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, who in 2013 used her celebrity status to help shine a spotlight on Lyme disease, is apparently undergoing a specialized treatment for her brain.
Yolanda Foster posted the following statement on her Bravo TV “Real Housewives” blog:
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to write a blog as my brain is out of order at the moment. I have started a 20-day intense treatment to try to repair the damage the Lyme has caused neurologically. Unfortunately, I am experiencing worse symptoms than before the treatment started. But I was promised that it would get worse before it gets better.
She also posted the following on her Yolanda H Foster Facebook page. We don’t know any details about the nature of her treatment. We certainly wish her well!

Hopefully, she isn’t doing some real quack treatment. That would only make us look bad.

Thanks for publicly letting this horrible constricting illness be publicized. This disease needs to be researched more. Please keep us updated on your treatment.

My son has gone through a great deal of neurological difficulty due to Lyme. My heart goes out to you. We are all trying to figure this one out. You have the support of a lot of people across this country. Good luck.

Exactly what is that treatment? In what country can you get it done?

I hope you are beginning to feel better. I contracted Lyme disease 10 years ago and have just discovered that I have severe arthritis as well as neurological problems. I can not seem to find a doctor who believes that this is all caused from my Lyme disease. I have been on the 21 day antibiotic regimine at least 5 times in the past 10 years but I continue to have problems. I would love to have some insight as to what doctors to see should you have the time. Feel better!

Electro-shock therapy, why is no one critical about this treatment?
Sorry but this is a treatment for psychiatric patients, and not a treatment for a chronic brain infection.
It converts chronic Lyme patients away as psychiatric patients.
Of course, this in ABC News.
A trial of wormser et al?

As a patient who has suffered from neurological effects of lyme disease and has seen well known lyme literate doctors; I am very curious as to the treatment you are receiving. Is there a name for the procedure so I can see if it is available in NY? What doctor is administering the treatment?
