  Spirochetal diseases

  I am getting a suspicion that we may be straying from a very important fight and acknowledgment of Lyme and Tick-borne related diseases with outdated non-knowledgeable lab and test readers and scientists.

  There is so much ignorance in the lab diseases identification system, pertaining to Lyme spirochetes that misidentification between Lyme and Syphilis in children or any subject could be miss diagnosed. If someone was to tell me I was suffering from Syphilis. I would certainly do my homework. Plus look at the slides. Something stinks here and I suggest a Lyme Knowledgable mind should be looking into it. This Syphilis "epidemic" as it appears, I feel could very well be Blind acknowledgment of Congenital and/or prenatal Lyme in many cases. This needs a good study. David R Thomas - Lyme Diseases Advocate, Survivor.

 This is very important to get right. David R Thomas - Tick-borne diseases researcher, survivor, Author, 

                    My Lyme Opinion


What is the difference and how it responds to our metabolism and LYME

Here is my thoughts on bread and it's responses to Lyme issues. Keep in mind I am not a dietitian or a Doctor. Not that it has any barring on what is knowledgeable when it comes to Tick-borne related issues or any other autoimmune issue for that matter. So before you run right out and change all of your eating habits, you might consider chatting with either one of these occupations as long as they are Lyme Literate and not simply educated through a conventional 15-minute introduction to Lyme at the big U.

Bread as we know it comes in mostly plastic wrappers.

I have found breads are not all created equal. Much of the white bread is made with (Ingredients: Enriched Wheat Flour)

1. White Bread - Most people eat white bread unless there is a health issue with Bloating. (Gas or Cell) My issue is Fatty cell bloating throughout the body. You can watch this by pitching your Love Handles as we call them at your hip sides. Enriched wheat flour will add two inches to my fat layer, and I will be sluggish and tired. A dietitian can offer much better wording perhaps. The important thing to me is what I pinch and feel and see, is also what I cant pinch, cant feel and cant see.

2. Wheat bread - Now we get a bit involved for some. If you like so-called wheat bread and prefer the taste and seem to get these awful bloating issues. You still may be eating (Enriched Wheat Flour Bread). This is how many Restaurants honor the patron's wishes with Wheat bread. But the sad part is: Labeled (Ingredients: Enriched Wheat Flour Bread) does the same damage to some people and cells as most White Bread.

3. 100 % Whole Wheat Bread - (Ingredients: Whole Wheat Flour) makes the difference for me. If I stay away from Enriched wheat flour, I do not bloat. The Ingredients Label on the wrapper will tell you what you need to know as a rule. The enriched wheat Flour in NON-Whole Wheat Bread is obviously very unhealthy for the late-stage or possibly early-stage Lyme sufferer. I do find myself eating a white bun in a restaurant from time to time. I also fall for the wheat sub bun when ordering out. But in large, I stay away from Enriched wheat flour bread, because it is not Whole Wheat Bread.

I was given the information from my first Lyme Literate Doc who was a pioneer of his day in Lyme treatment and deeply threatened and chastised in courts by the powers that be by the CDC, IDSA, NIH, and license compromises that he was limited to what he could do as an Insurance covered doctor and what his patients could turn into their insurance companies. Therefore he could not practice medicine without charging cash only from patients. So you and I owe him. (no names mentioned).

As it happens, one of the main subordinates and understudies of the powers that be, or Gods In White Coats That I write about on my site and in my book Through Challenge and Lyme Disease by David R Thomas, actually runs and is controlling the Covid19 Pandemic and is advisor to the leaders of the world. 4252021


I was asked to submit my thoughts on the present Lyme issues. I submited the following. 

Dear Journal,


   My cause for better Tick-borne diseases understanding by the medical community and higher education is not filtering through the channels of Big U. learning channels. But is coming from the grassroots fieldwork of Medical professionals that understand, there is something wrong from top-tier learning, down to the medical advisor to the patient. When only the patient has the answers to their own successes or demise. 

 This medical climate through Covid Pandemic has also clouded the importance of Tick disease issues and increased the Lyme and co-infections such as Bartonella, Babesiosis, Anaplasmosis among many others infectious spread by at least 150,000 victims per year in the USA alone. Up from 425,000 annually (This comes from a CDC post recently)

 There will not be a valued medical Tick defense system until all medical professionals, from first responders to specialists of all areas of medicine stop blowing this responsibility off to the next office.  

 We must educate the complete medical system. The best way at this time as I see it is to start listening to the surviving speakers and educators and the Lyme Literate community that is in place at Ilads. ( International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society ) and many very knowledgeable characters fighting for updated Lyme medical practices.

 We must restart learning global Tick disease prevention practices that have been diluted through population growing neglect and medical gaslighting for higher profit-taking and misdiagnosis from/to the patient.

 There are great Lyme prevention programs available in the ready-to-educate world. 

We need to be using this now.

 WOW, Linda and I at were called to a home by about 1 1/2 years ago. We found a family stressed out, all looked very tired. Their voices were tense and fearful. They were losing a battle with their teenager. We listened for some time and I was convinced this was another missed case of Lyme disease and coinfections. Linda and I remained in contact as we helped the family develop a plan. We learn in the Lyme world that plans are made to be broken and reset often. The teenager has gone through some really serious psychiatric and neurologic issues. We were invited back yesterday after a lengthy conversation with mom on the phone. Wow, this teenager, even though the patient is stabilized with meds for now.
Linda and I went home with great pride that we could help them get their family back. We are confident that in time, this teen will do ok. So many out there will not make it, will take their life, or someone else's, because they were missed by the medical knowledge that has no clue. This is not the first we have been called to and will not be the last. This is a proud day.

  I have been a very busy guy with trying to get my book organized and ready to reprint, added too and properly edited. But then comes a time to take a break from the business and take a call to go talk to somebody or just get away from it all. This brings me to an experience that I had recently and it left us feeling still useful in our fight for good health.
  I was called to a home yesterday to talk about Lyme. We met 2 wonderful young people, one 78 yrs. and the other 80 I believe. Both tested positive and starting meds. and unfamiliar with the lyme life of a lyme sufferer. Linda and I meet all ages with this terrible disease. These people have been diagnosed previously with many of the ageing ailments of the elderly and just talking with them and there enthusiasm for life. You could tell they were two kids thrown out of there element. Many had them crazy or senile, wearing down from old age but I seen two people seeking quality of life for the remaining days , months, or yrs. they have left. They have clearly been through hell chasing diagnosis's and now they have a direction and goal. My wife and I felt good leaving there with an invite back.

   After a 9 inch snow I went out finely to shovel sidewalk, driveway at 8:30 this AM. Got a fair start of about ten feet when it was time too rest when a neighbor down the street saw me and came right up the sidewalk and lightened my load for me a quite a bit. I asked him how much I owed him and he said nothing. Then he asked if there was stones in my driveway and I said yes. He slid his four wheeler in gear and very gingerly, (You know Ginger ) pushed the snow of the sidewalk without pushing all the stones into the yard. Again I asked how much can I pay you. He said nothing. He seemed to be a very nice gentleman and there will be something from Santa under his Christmas tree this year. I was concerned for my health has been tricking me out a bit lately. Thanks Mat F for helping me out. Merry Christmas everybody.
