Abrupt Turns

Posted on May 13, 2020 at 8:34 AM Comments comments (0)
Life in Silent diseases worlds,
 often takes abrupt turns, Be alert. 
This is a statement I recently made. I was asked to elaborate.
 
 My response is, In response to my recent statement. I am thinking about the silent diseases sufferers of the world that do not get the understanding from illiterate medical professionals about devastating issues that can drive sufferers over the edge. Whether it be Lyme and/or tick borne diseases or Covid19 RA, MS, Mental health or a hundreds other mysterious health related issues. All of these can cause abrupt life turns. That is where my thoughts were going.

Bee Pollen findings

Posted on December 14, 2018 at 10:24 PM Comments comments (6)
 We use some Bee pollen and it may help us. We do not use bee pollen as suggested I am sure. Dr. Ax gives great insight to Bee pollen. I like and am more in line with Dr. Ax than I am with an IDSA FDA promoted site.  Keep in mind Dr. Ax article has my support on this subject. https://draxe.com/bee-pollen/

-------------------

Bee pollen appears to be safe for most people, at least when taken for a short term. But if you have pollen allergies, you may get more than you bargained for. Bee pollen can cause a serious allergic reaction -- including shortness of breath, hives, swelling, and anaphylaxis.


Bee pollen is not safe for pregnant women. A woman should also avoid using bee pollen if she is breastfeeding.

Bee pollen may cause increased bleeding if taken with certain blood thinners like warfarin. Check with your doctor before taking bee pollen if you take any medications, over-the-counter medicines, or herbals.

I feel WebMD may be a good resource for many things.
-------------------

Dr. Ax reports - Many manufacturers make bee pollen pills or supplements that claim to help you lose weight fast, but there is little scientific evidence proving this to be true. In fact, the FDA had to recall Zi Xiu Tang bee pollen capsules because they found it contained undeclared sibutramine and phenolphthalein, weight-loss drugs that are no longer used in the U.S. because they may increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.

Thank you for your time. Happy holidays.

Testing & Diagnosis

Posted on May 10, 2014 at 3:13 PM Comments comments (1)
   From Buz Susser, A knowledgeable Lymer. From La, Cal. and Penna. boy. Buz makes a very good point about Lyme test and diagnosis. His FB post reads.
  I had a patient who had her tick bite twenty-some years ago, with a bull’s eye rash and everything, and she’s probably been to fifteen doctors, none of whom would believe she has Lyme. She has Lyme tests from labs that don’t do well with Lyme and they came back equivocal or negative, so she didn’t have Lyme by any standard for all these years.
Yet, she has all the classic signs of Lyme—myalgia, arthralgia, brain fog, classical rash in New York, and her mother recognized it. She has Lyme clinically.
Just from her clinical history, there is a ninety-nine percent chance she has Lyme, no matter what the test shows. She’s been sick all these years. https://www.facebook.com/buz.susser/about

  My reply is: Great point Doc. A lot of people out there don't realize or can't believe you can be clinically diagnosed "WITH LYME / "WITH A NEGATIVE TEST". This is why an LLMD is so important. A reader of mine and friend has had the test once. Not sure which test. Early or I-Genex (late). I know she has Lyme. Doctor started treating her for Lyme. And Her LLMD has just sent her in for an I-Genex test. By the way. Another good sign she has Lyme. She is feeling better and making progress on Lyme meds.

HELIOBACTOR PYLORI

Posted on May 13, 2013 at 6:46 AM Comments comments (6)
   Hello,
I have had a letter lately from a lady who suffers greatly with meds and gets very sick with vomiting and many other issues following or while taking a round of meds to combat these ailments assoc. with Lyme. I wrote an article some time ago that is part of another article about H.Pylori. I felt it is a good time to reinsert an article just for H. Pylori. With the complications of not excepting your meds. It may be an existing problem you need to take care of first. It could be H. Pylori.
   Sometimes You find stomach bacteria such as H.Pylori that is a gut infection that has been around infecting much of the worlds population by 50%. A person who has a lot of trouble keeping meds down could have H. Pylori. What I think happened in our experience was the meds were put into the gut to combat a tic related disorder and it would end up doing battle with the H Pylori that would always win the battle. Then the Doctor stepped back and took a test for H. Pylori and received a positive test. The H. Pylori was treated with 10day treatment and now we are treating lyme and co-infections. If you suffer from over bloating, Diarrhea, constipation, or just out of the blue stomach discomfort. You might talk with your doctor about it or have him refer you to a stomach specialist.There you have it in a nut shell and it gets much more complicated and to dump all of this on a mainstream family doctor is a bit much I'm sure. But as I say in many of my articles. A really good lyme doctor often either has lyme or is treating somebody very close to his heart with lyme. Sometimes it just makes sense to talk to somebody who has been there.
Thank you,
