Why Am I Still So Sick?
In 2004, Richard Longland was sickened by an undiagnosed disease after spine surgery. In the months
that followed, a list of maladies appeared: headaches; neck, throat and shoulder pain; and random “lightning
shocks.” In 2005 and 2006, other problems emerged and challenged his sanity: cardiovascular and neurological
troubles; bone-crushing fatigue; and the proverbial brain fog.
After battling the medical system, he was finally diagnosed with a systemic bacterial infection
in 2007. The mycoplasma pneumonia that disabled him could have originated from any number of sources: the surgical
intubation process, the hospital, any public place, or even a tick. He visited more than twenty doctors for a
diagnosis. During this difficult period, he created The Arthroplasty Patient foundation, produced its
first educational film and helped spine patients get “back on their feet
with an active global discussion board. His focused research on
antimicrobials and anti-biofilm treatments led to his treatment program using pharmaceutical and naturopathic
agents to rid his body of systemic bacterial biofilms.
The interviews are available individually here, and the film available here when it is released.

Montana. Read the following excerpt:
"Just as we began
filming, there was a pounding on the door, and we found ourselves facing someone who turned out to be a top
researcher at the nearby Rocky Mountain Laboratories, a biolevel-4 NIH research facility.
Standing on the porch, our uninvited guest said, “I’ve been told that I need to supervise this interview.
This comes from the highest levels. There are things that Willy can’t talk
