All “weeds” have a purpose—they are filling some niche in the ecosystem or they wouldn’t/couldn't be present. Is it a coincidence that this plant that's great for Lyme disease is becoming invasively prevalent in areas where Lyme is becoming prevalent too?
Health savvy people know that most folks should be supplementing vitamin D3. But, what's less known is that if done incorrectly, it can be fatal. That is not one of the sensationalist comments that's so common on online media today.

There are three types of patients who “have Lyme disease”.
