how much we enjoy your magazine. Last year you ran an article on Lyme disease. Three weeks before that issue came out my husband had a tick bite that turned into a bullseye. Until your article we had no idea why. We put him on a strong dose of Golden Seal for a couple of weeks and his blood tests have come back negative. Thanks a million!!! Kitty and Peter

Dear Kitty and Peter, I am so happy that our article was of

help to you. Lyme disease is a terrible disease! I am very glad you are all right, Peter. Thank you both for your kind note. We will run your letter in the next issue to remind people to be careful. Best regards, Dorothy
