"Maine is seeing a significant increase in vector-borne disease (VBDs) which can affect every system of the human body.  While good progress has been made in education efforts on limiting exposure to ticks, there is still much controversy over finding a diagnosis, identifying all modes of disease transmission, recognizing multiple co-infections, and then finding proper treatments.  This has been the experience of many patients with chronic illness symptoms, many of whom did not realize that they had been exposed to and infected by a vector-borne disease."
