The existence of Lyme-like disease is hotly debated in Australia, with many doctors being ostracised by their colleagues for even mentioning the four letter word.
Today, we are joined by Jennie Burke of Australian Biologics, who is no stranger to the controversy surrounding the existence of Borrelia species in Australia. She shares with us her experience, the challenges with adequate testing, and the politics of this emerging Borrelia, or Borrelia-like infection - which may or may not be the classical tick-borne disease found in every other continent bar Antarctica.
Jennie Burke established Australian Biologics Testing Services to offer scientific testing with a naturopathic philosophy in 1985. While originally trained in medical technology, Jennie has worked in other fields, such as Section Head for Uranium Analysis at Geomineral Assays in her early twenties and in Food Technology. She also holds diploma's in Nutritional Science, Medical Herbalism and a Research Masters of Science with Honours. Jennie lectures frequently overseas at cancer congresses in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the USA, and is known internationally as a researcher in pleomorphism.
