Yolanda Foster of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is dealing with serious health issues that have truly affected her career and her life. Her cast mates from RHOBH know that she is in a bad way right now and looking for any doctors and treatment that can help her. Well, there is one doctor that won't be helping her, and actually says she is suffering from a fake disease.
A New England doctor/pediatrician by the name of Russell Saunders states on the Daily Beast that he has never seen Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, doesn't know Yolanda Foster, and hadn't even heard of her until recently.
He does know she is suffering from a disease of some sort, but he doesn't believe it is Lyme Disease. Actually, he doesn't even believe that Lyme Disease exists.
"[T]here simply is no good evidence that chronic Lyme disease is an actual medical condition. As I have written before, while some patients may experience symptoms after appropriate treatment for Lyme, treatment for persistent or recurrent infection has no grounding in legitimate medical science. On this point the Centers for Disease Control, the National Institutes of Health, and the Infectious Diseases Society of America are all agreed."
Most recently, Foster had posted a pic to her Instagram that she and husband David Foster had traveled to Singapore. There, they were trying a very expensive and new treatment that they hoped would work.
Saunders is well aware that stating Yolanda Foster of RHOBH has a fake disease opens him up for all kinds of backlash. He just doesn't like that people are focusing on a disease he says research proves doesn't exist. Saunders is no stranger to drama, though, as he says his practice won't accept child patients whose parents won't vaccinate them.
He also isn't thrilled with Foster shouting out and speaking to all her fellow "Lymies" because he thinks it continues the thought that Lyme Disease is real. The idea that Foster is suffering here isn't at question, but what she is truly suffering from.
If there is any validity to Saunders' claims of it being a fake disease, then she may be searching for the wrong cure.
Foster's co-star Kyle Richards appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live recently, and Us Magazine said that she is "just really struggling." Richards says she has "been in contact a lot actually via texts and emails." It is now known, though, that reading and writing has become difficult for Foster as she has recently stated.
"I have lost the ability to read, write, or even watch TV, because I can't process information or any stimulation for that matter... It feels like someone came in and confiscated my brain and tied my hands behind my back to just watch and see life go by without me participating in it."
