Discovery of a New Approach: Awareness and Prevention of Chronic Diseases

Chronic Lyme disease is becoming a serious public health concern since misdiagnosis of Lyme disease is usually frequent. The bacteria that causes Lyme disease is reportedly hard to detect with the current laboratory tests. CDC reports that there are 300,000 new cases every year in the United States because Chronic Lyme disease is commonly misdiagnosed and mistreated by many health care professionals. It was also stated that many patients with Chronic Lyme disease diagnosis share the same views that the medical community has failed to explain or treat their illnesses effectively. The misdiagnosis and mistreatment of Chronic Lyme disease have resulted in uncertainty and worry, leading to the adjustment of an alternative but unproven management strategy, leaving thousands of patients physically and emotionally impaired and without a medically approved treatment option.

That is why Dr. Neelam Uppal spent thirty years of practice in infectious diseases and internal medicine to publish the book; Chronic Diseases - Lymes, Hpv, Hsv Misdiagnosis and Mistreatment: A New Approach to the Epidemic. It would serve as a discovery of a new approach to the diagnosis and treatment of chronic Lyme disease that will provide awareness to the public and healthcare professionals. Especially that until now, it has been a controversial talk in the minds of some physicians, health insurance companies, and some bureaucrat politicians.

Dr. Uppal is a highly personable, competent, and team-spirited physician. She has dedicated her life to her passion for her career as she graduated from Christian Medical College in India and went to New York for her internship. She then finished her residency in internal medicine in New Jersey and did her fellowship in infectious diseases in New York Hospital of Queens and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Dr. Uppal's achievement continues to prosper as she is also board-certified in infectious diseases on the Advisory Board of National Morgellon's Foundation and a winner of the American College of Physicians Award in 1990. Dr. Neelam Uppal is a Medical Director / Research Scientist HIV – Aids Internist & Primary Care.

Not only Dr. Uppal excels in her educational background, but she was also quoted in New York Times and has been into several national television shows. She stayed true to her humble personality and desire to help people even with her accomplishments in life. She became an inspiration to many people, most especially to medical students who looked up to her as their motivation to achieve their dreams.

Dr. Uppal's experiences caused her to realize the difficulty it has brought upon the medical community and the involvement of the people suffering from the disease. Through her years of practice, Dr. Uppal was able to see in a larger perspective how the disease could be spreading in the United States. The book Chronic Diseases - Lymes, Hpv, Hsv Misdiagnosis and Mistreatment: A New Approach to the Epidemic also contains her findings of how the disease can be prevented as a public health issue. Through her extensive research and findings, Dr. Uppal has revealed the dilemma of evidence-based Medicine is uncommon where the evidence is falsely negative, corrupted, or is a subjective opinion of another person. Thus, knowledge of the disease and relying on the signs and symptoms of the patient can be the only basis for treatment and cure. This book highlights the vague symptoms to make people look for zebras when horses are not there.
