Yolanda Foster has been battling Lyme disease for years, and she’s shared her journey on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Yolanda continues to return to the show, because she wants to use the platform to spread the word about Lyme. However, Foster has had many critics over the years, including her very own family members and co-stars. But now, someone is telling Foster that her illness isn’t real. According to a new Instagram, Yolanda Foster shared some shocking stats about Lyme disease, and her critics were quick to come out.
“Let’s talk about important facts, You might be tired of hearing about it but I am tired of living it…….. #WeMustFindACure #LymeDiseaseAwareness @lymestats @globallymealliance #ChronicInvisibleDisease,” Foster revealed, sharing a photo that read, “Lyme is the fastest growing infectious bacterial disease in the USA. Lyme disease is caused by a spiral shaped bacteria (spirochete) called Borrealia. There are 100 different strains of Borrelia in the USA and 300 worldwide. In the USA, Lyme disease is twice as common as Breast Cancer and six times as common as aids.”
Yolanda has spent many months studying Lyme disease, and after two of her three children were diagnosed with Lyme disease, she made it her life mission to find a cure for this disease. But there are so many critics that want to bring her down. And after Foster posted this message to her followers, a critic decided to tell her that Lyme simply doesn’t exist.
“Actually ‘lyme’ isn’t Lyme. Look at who labeled Lyme as Lyme..the same ppl who label every other disease! I was diagnosed with Lyme and every other diseases. Yolanda Foster in time you will see and realize this. Lyme disease does not exist! Lyme is exactly the same as AIDS, cancer, chlamydia, syphilis, etc… You really think that a tick is affecting this many ppl? I usto until I learned the truth! Why just now!!!? Come on it’s all in plain view!” a follower named Jess wrote in reply to Yolanda.
“They all come from our bodies immune system being compromised by chemical toxicity which leads to a total shut down! It is our bodies defense reaction! Look at the symptoms then go ask one with AIDS what their symptoms are!? They are the exact same! We are poisoned through our food, air, water, vaccines, gmos, household cleaners, toxic personal items.. The list goes on and on. I hate the word and LABEL Lyme so much! It’s our government manipulating us again! We need to put out the truth about what’s really making us sick!” the follower pointed out.
According to E! Online, Yolanda Foster’s friend Erika Girardi has been a huge support for her. She’s been there for doctor’s appointments, she’s told her when her friends talk about her behind her back, and she’s loyal to Foster. And when Yolanda sat down with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, she revealed that people are often ignorant about her Lyme disease. They don’t think she has it because they don’t understand it. And rather than take the time to understand it, they just judge it vocally.
But the disease has taken quite a bit from Yolanda. She recently announced that she and David Foster are divorcing. While she didn’t reveal the details of the divorce, she has hinted that Foster travels quite a bit and that her illness could be holding him back. Rather than let the marriage be miserable, she is divorcing him. Now, she’s trying to live the single life.
What do you think of Yolanda Foster’s critics? Do you think people should just leave her alone?
