About the LDRD

The Lyme Disease Research Database (LDRD) was started in 2005 by Suzanne Arthur, MA, and her business partner Ev Miles. Suzanne suffered from Lyme disease symptoms for at least two years without knowing the cause. Like millions of people, she was misdiagnosed, told she had eczema and probably multiple sclerosis. The treatment prescribed for eczema caused the Lyme bacteria to replicate and her symptoms worsened, landing her in the hospital with secondary infections. After a Lyme literate doctor friend urged her to get tested through an independent lab, she was finally correctly diagnosed with Lyme. She embarked on a long journey to educate herself about Lyme. With the help of her naturopathic doctor she undertook an integrative approach towards treatment and started on the road to wellness.

You can read all about Suzanne's impressive recovery in her healing journal, which is available when you donate to the LDRD.

Suzanne decided to use her skills as a researcher and writer to help others educate themselves about Lyme. Her business partner offered his technical skills to facilitate the website.

The LDRD offers free, basic information about Lyme disease and membership benefits to those who donate. The LDRD is dedicated to educating and informing the public on all aspects of the prevention and treatment of chronic Lyme disease.

The Mission of the Lyme Disease Research Database is:

  1. To provide quality and timely information primarily for Lyme sufferers.
  2. To provide independent journalistic research related to Lyme disease.
  3. To promote healthy living and habits as the most effective defense against disease.
  4. To encourage self healing and promote personal responsibility towards the goal of a healthy life.
  5. To provide motivation and hope for Lyme sufferers to beat chronic Lyme disease once and for all.
