Singer songwriter

Infected: 2014
Diagnosed: 2013
Current health: “I am about 95 percent better. I am still on and off various antibiotics and Chinese herbs, but there is light.

Unless eradicated very early, Lyme is not curable. You strive to ‘bang it into submission,’ as my heroic Lyme doctor says, and hope not to be in the forty percent-or-so who relapse. -Dana Parish

Singer-songwriter Dana Parish, who has numerous chart-topping singles (including “Not My Problem” and “Let it Go By”) and collaborations with husband Andrew Hollander, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Celine Dion, Jacquie Lee, and Idina Menzel, among others, has also struggled with Lyme disease.

Despite early antibiotic treatment after discovering a rash in early 2014, she continued to experience worsening symptoms. Two years and many medical consultations later, Dana is again on antibiotics with a confirmed diagnosis of persistent Lyme infection. She is “fighting the good fight,” but making progress.

Dana shared her story in this February issue of the Huffington Post in hopes of helping others to “be aware and be vigilant.”

  1. I would love some support and anyone who has overcome these buggers!!!

    Just the other day I burst out into tears… no one seems to understand what I am going thru and my Dr. misdiagnosed me with fibromyalgia 20 years ago. I was finally diagnosed with Rickettsia in November and then it all made sense… I live in Canada and the drs. here don’t recognize Lyme, it’s crazy!!! I can’t live like this anymore. Please is there some help out there? People cannot suffer anymore!!! Let’s all fight like soldiers!!!! The war for a cure is on! Sandra Rush Kelowna, BC, Canada

    1. I will not repeat my story. I have documentation of every step of my battle from 1984-1997. Regardless of what is written, if a fast diagnosis isn’t treated with antibiotics, long-term is a horror story. I was cured in 1997 from a chelation therapy in an out-of-the-norm clinic no longer there. Obviously I have the formula and do NOT get replies from the 20 Doctors that treated me back then. If anyone is interested, I will share what worked for me. I am 78 years of age and do not have any of the symptoms that I had and they were horrific.

  2. Much less often now I review the state of Lyme news. I missed the Dr Phillips articles all last year. Thanks for being you.

    I’m a long term misdiagnosed sufferer now w/5+ years of slow but steady recovery.THC/CBD tinctures became a critical addition to health. I have had a first-hand conversation w/known bright neighbors who explained their conversation w/ Russian emigrees about inoculation in Russia from this biologic weapon created and threatening local residents after “nature got out” and escaped Russian control. I can offer little more but believe the hesitancy of US to fund studies is a slow walk or coverup. I suspect the US had this similar loss of control of the Russian bioweapon from the US weapons research lab on Long Island or now could easily imagine the Russians letting it loose in CT/ NY intentionally.
