Tired of Lyme is excited to announce the launch of "sLyme". sLyme, pronounced "slime", is a new Lyme Disease search engine designed specifically for those associated with Lyme Disease and its coinfections. The new search engine's goal is to make it easier for those with Lyme Disease to find the answers they need from across the internet.
Cut the chase
sLyme is powered by Google, but without all the extra non-Lyme Disease sites. This is huge because rather than spending time rummaging in between non-Lyme Disease sites with a vague search term, all the search results that appear on sLyme are Lyme Disease relevant sites.
Take below for example. On the left is a simple search on Google with the search term"pain in foot/toe". On the right is a simple search on sLyme with the same search term. Though both are powered by Google, sLyme cuts to the chase, or should it be "cuts the chase", and presents only Lyme Disease relevant information for the search term "pain in foot/toe".
But don't just take our word for it. Try this test out yourself with different Lyme Disease search terms and see what you find.
How does "slyme" work?
In order to help those with Lyme Disease find the answers they need quickly and efficiently, sLyme indexes 3 types of websites: Lyme Disease Blogs, Lyme Disease Forums and Support Groups, and Lyme Disease Websites. You can find out more about these 3 types of websites here.
sLyme indexes the most popular and nonpopular Lyme Disease websites across the internet, and you can help with this project too here.
What can people search for?
Being that sLyme is a Lyme Diseas search engine, those who use it can search for anything related to Lyme Disease and its coinfections. This includes, but isn't limited to LLMDs or Lyme Literate Doctors in your area, strange and rarely discussed symptoms, Lyme and coinfection treatment protocols, and personal Lyme stories to name a few.
Note: sLyme is not a guaranteed method for finding an appropriate treating physician for Lyme Disease or its coinfections. It purely aims to assist this process.
Happy sLyming [think it'll catch on?], and here's to making the fight against Lyme Disease and it comrades just a little bit easier.
