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that we may be straying from a very important fight and acknowledgment of Lyme and Tick-borne related diseases with outdated non-knowledgeable lab and test readers and scientists.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

Thank you for your time,

 I hear much about the great Corona Virus Pandemic. Almost from day one of the possible global outbreak that would affect the world. As this has turned out to be only time will tell if we have taken the right steps to avoid disaster.
  The other world pandemic that is not talked about and has ravaged the world, and is much more understanding of how the gov. failed us back in the 90"s. I write much about this issue as I am a very literate Tick-Borne advocate and Prevention seminar facilitator at
  People are now being misdiagnosed corona, I am sure. You can check this out with experts affiliated at Now we Lyme and coinfections sufferers are forgotten once again as our descendants will one day look back on our generation and ask. Why were we cast aside when something could have been done?
  Could it have really been the final decision that Lyme and Tick-borne diseases were not lucrative enough to take on as a public health threat? Or because it was much more lucrative to treat the over 300 autoimmune symptoms that Tick-borne diseases will create if ignored and allowed to manifest. 
  We have a responsibility to our descendants to deal with this IDSA, CDC, NIH (world controllers of medicine) debacle for the futures of our children. 
  There is so much familiar in the medical world today that going to a health establishment becomes a very fearful last hope, instead of known - knowledgeable life-sustaining expertise.
  I pray soon that we all start to write about the great Tick-borne diseases disaster of the turn of the 21 century that devastated the futures of our forgotten future generations. 

Abrupt Turns

Posted on May 13, 2020 at 8:34 AM Comments comments (86)
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.

A Recent Intervention

I was called to an intervention for a retired RN. This RN was very concerned for her sister. 
As we talked we found the nurse also was treated a few short years ago. As we chatted about things. 
I found I was more concerned with this RN than I was with her Sister. 

Now she and three members of her family will look into getting help. 

This RN had been suffering Neurological, arthritic, Autonomic issues and had no idea that she was a chronic Lymie. 

She said the doctor took a test and she tested positive right off the bite.

OK, I am not an MD. But I see this way too much. 

When sufferers test the positive right of the bite. 

I explained to her. She likely carried the bacteria for years and this Tick brought her to the doctor as she was dropping fast. 

I suggest she was living with an active infection because detectable antibodies are not detectable for about 6 to 8 weeks I believe. 

As we left, I looked into her eyes and told her. 

A very common statement made to the Tick-borne disease community is: 

You are looking great, of coarse, we say thank you, while we unravel on the inside.

Her eyes spoke back to me saying yes and now she has someone that believes her.

Yes, You won't get it until you get it. And then sometimes you don't get it until you chat with those that have it.

  This Poem was remembered last night as I sat close to our friend that lost his mate to Lyme and then Cancer. As the name changes to Tick-Borne related issues and Lyme. The poem still feels the same.

David R Thomas: Posted on Saturday, March 12, 2016 10:13 AM
This poem struck my mind this morning as I decided to take out an address I no longer needed.

  My duty today for a friend,
a warrior who could not stay.
She was strong as she was quiet,
we heard little at the end.
Her mate was always there,
with his strength and to defend.
As this monster inside her,
he would keep until the end. My duty today for a friend,
a warrior who could not stay.
When we met she was my teacher,
for a journey that will get deeper.
She was blessed so many ways,
her soul can now go free,
With out the fences of challenge,
to tell, you could not see. My duty today for a friend,
a warrior who could not stay.
The nights with no sleep,
we knew she was adding.
The wind became silent,
as a friend slips away.
My duty in honor,
to delete from my list.
I can hear her say,
I could not stay.

David R Thomas

This is written with a special spot in our hearts of Advanced Lyme /tick related issues
and the many silent and invisible disease sufferers who we understand and can relate to.

I robbed that from the sister agency of the "NGC" National Guidelines Clearinghouse, That is the "NQMC" The National Quality Measures Clearinghouse.

Thank you C. D. for your naturalist inspiration this morning.

A legislative Plea

Posted on October 26, 2017 at 9:51 PM Comments comments (513)


Hello all and especially my readers of the 41rst district of Penna,

I am concerned about the SB 100 being stuck in committee without be acted on. It is stuck in the Banking and Ins committee chairman's 41rst district Senator Donald White's Office. This Bill will help release Physicians to treat these Tick related issues correctly in the the eyes of the Lyme literate community. I need all my readers to spread the word and share this if you would. We need you to send a letter to Senator White's office. You might even call his office and stipulate that you would like him to act on this bill. Then you Lyme sufferers, recoverers and advocates from that district, should make contact with PALRN at They will be handling further direction on this matter. They also have a channel there for you to send your letter and so on. If you do not know how to write a letter to your senator. I don't either. But the following is the one I wrote and sent.

Thank you,

David R Thomas


  Hello Senator Donald White,

 I am a Lyme disease advocate/survivor. I have seen the devastation and recovery out there in the world of Lyme. But the hardest thing about Tick related issues is the ignorance of the non Lyme community. This Epidemic needs to be more educated, better understood, but even more important. Listened to by a sufferers Doctor or medical professional. I do hope that you will do your best to bring this SB 100 out of committee and help to get this passed. I would also hope that this stall is not in regards to the 75% bias to any ins company supporters. This epidemic/pandemic will be looked at in seventy-five years as an abominable, irresponsible, unprofessional medical disgrace. You need to figure out what list you want your name to be on when your future descendants look back and see what you have done. This is important and will save insurance companies billions of dollars and patients many years of suffering, and put many back to work helping the tax base. I do hope you do act on this, SB 100, and help vote this through as approved.

Thank you for your time,

David R Thomas

Infantile Lyme

Posted on June 23, 2017 at 8:23 AM Comments comments (114)
Good day folks, I am waiting for rain. I have a letter written to me from what I consider the horses mouth. The letter states, A child was brought to the hospital at the request of a Local Peds office. They could not figure out what was wrong with the child at the Peds office. Kudos to them. But I could educate them on that. The hospital Lyme literate personal said this is likely Lyme. Treated the child and child is as I understand this getting better. The trouble with this great story is. I heard this about the wrong hospital. It was another local hospital. One that has personal with nads to actually take this bear on. The sad part of that story is. The satellite offices of that Lyme literate Doctors presents, IN MY OPINION, don't know how to recognize, treat or suspect infantile lyme. If your child is expressing strange and unusual behavior for that child or for any child. What does it hurt to get some knowledge to help benefit that child. At this time the ONLY checks and balances you mothers and Dads have is LYME LITERATE people. Often that is not the medical community. I feel, along with your local lyme support groups can get you there. The mainstream medical community as a whole is not there yet. With the CDC fighting us every step of the way. This is a very slow and sometimes frustrating progression to Tick Borne related science. IN MY OPINION

Time Travel

I here a lot about planetary futures, survival of our species. I share again this article and thought process. These things I write take me away from the everyday disease fighting challenges of our time. I enjoyed sharing this thought process from where ever it came. Enjoy Time Travel


Good day all,
I woke this morning pondering the puzzle book with Metals as the subject of the project. In the puzzle was Manganese. I being a fairly deep thinker was quickly transported to another dimension of why we are here, Why we are not there, How can we get there, Are we already making that journey. I slowly started with Manganese. First of all I was never with the understanding that Manganese is a metal. A mineral maybe. But the more I thought about this, Metal?/mineral, I found myself back to the creator recipe starter of iron. Complicated right? I have been chasing this ghost of Lyme disease for a number of years. In my search for answers, I have found some interesting statements and facts. I have found that no element stays the same over time as Iron, which is our earthling main building block for life. You say and think, WHAT, Yes Building block for life on our planet. I found this out by discovering that the disease that I have is not dependent on the one absolute of our planet. IRON. My disease depends on the Manganese its host can produce from the Iron after the Manganese natural is used up. Yes there is a Big study in there looming I am sure. Then I am thinking, if all on this planet depends on Iron to survive, And we cannot survive as we are on another planet as we are. Then it makes sense to me that we will be transported to other dimensions and worlds as which we came. We have already been populating the universe with our kind but in recipe form. To assume we will survive the long grueling journey into the future in our earth suits will be wrong. We are being warmed up to the idea of planetary travel by possible time travelers coming here. This would bring my thought processes this morning full circle if we see our self as different forms than the form we have taken. If we can survive there as we humans do here. Then the recipe for life will develop the survivable form for that new home. I am returning to my early theory that we will ride on the back of Photons as we likely already are and the main building block of our kind will prevail. It is interesting that most alien life forms in our media look at us as friends and not foes. Perhaps they already know we are them in another time.

All of this in one movement,
