From the article: “Smith said that the government researcher credited with discovering Lyme disease, Dr. Willy Burgdorfer, was a bio-weapons specialist. According to Smith, Burgdorfer’s files reveals that he and other bio-weapon specialists ‘stuffed ticks with pathogens in a quest to cause severe disability, disease, and death to potential enemies.'”

The cell membrane gets damaged by toxins, inflammation, and other factors involved in Lyme, but by restoring it with phospholipid therapy, the body can more quickly heal.”

I reviewed Aromalief’s hemp pain relief cream last month!
After my review posted, the owner sent me a tube of the mild scent to try. I’ve been using it, and it’s just as good as Aromalief’s regular hemp cream. The only difference is that the scent is all natural and derived completely from essential oils, which is perfect for those of us who are sensitive to artificial fragrance!
