Review of the Lyme Altar Documentary

Scott ForsgrenReview By Scott Forsgren from BetterHealthGuy

The Lyme Altar is a new documentary with a focus on the struggles of Lyme disease. The film was released in August 2014 and is available on A trailer of the film can be viewed below. It is a collaboration between Gordon Medical Associates (GMA) and Touchable Stories Productions. I personally enjoyed the powerhouse healers that shared their insights in the film. They included Joseph Burrascano MD, Eric Gordon MD, Neil Nathan MD, Wayne Anderson ND, Elizabeth Large ND and more.

Meanwhile, in the opening credits, the title The Lyme Altar (with an “ar”) transforms into The Lyme Alter (with an “er”).

It’s an intriguing juxtaposition. Is Lyme disease a holy experience? Are people with Lyme being seen as sacrificial lambs? Do people worship the medications they hope will heal them?
