  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that we may be straying from a very important fight and acknowledgment of Lyme and Tick-borne related diseases with outdated non-knowledgeable lab and test readers and scientists.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 was asked today about mold and if I had any experience with mold sensitivity and Lyme. 

  My response is, mold is a common hindrance in Lyme recovery. Some see, feel it, or my Diddy is inhale it. I think mold toxicity is a big deal. This year in the Northeast, we have heat, rain, following an abundant acorn crop. I suspect about August through November will be a very troublesome time for tick-borne diseases between ages 0 to 16.
 If there is mold, there will likely be some very sicker than usual kids this year. We need trained eyes in our ER personal. They just are not there yet or not interested. IN MY OPINION

My update to The Perils

Posted on May 23, 2019 at 8:10 PM Comments comments (0)
An Updated expansion of
“The Perils of Invisible disease
and Lyme Related Issues”
 First I must say I am not a Doctor. I am a well oiled Lyme disease advocate, survivor Prevention presenter, Seminar facilitator that probably knows more about the new sciences of Tick borne diseases from bite to treatment than 98% of the world medical community as much of the Tick-borne disease sufferers have been forced to become. We have bred a very competent group of computer operators in the world and gave them medical degrees. It seems this is where much of the lack of knowledge is coming from.
 We in the USA are finding a great argument among scholars about vaccination for and against. I see a clash coming that will put this to rest. As we fight over who will get to be forced vaccinated. The tick borne disease world and the autoimmune deficient world will suffer the most. This will not kill those Tick borne sufferers right off. This will be the economy busting that will last generations. In two hundred years, if our descendants are lucky enough to survive this Arrogance bred ignorance and greed of the medical communities world wide. This will rival the great plague of the mid-evil days of the Roman Empire.
 Forcing vaccinations to the pandemic of Diagnosed / Un-diagnosed Lyme sufferers out there from ages 0 to 90 will stack bodies up so fast, hospitals will fill up, and finally, the defunct medical community will crumble from its own lack of guidance from the leaders of the IDSA/CDC. Only then we will be able to rebuild. Simply because the medical community is no longer trained to think outside the box where Tick-borne diseases live.
 I feel we do not have to go down this road as our medical leaders in the highest offices dictate. We can make what we have work by changing the leadership and investigating why we are where we are in this great argument of Tick borne and Vaccination issues come speeding toward a crashing disaster.

federal testing

I am reading the article about Opioid, Syphilis outbreaks and Trumps Hiv. Plan from Morgellens Survey – Facebook page.

My Dad and I had an experience back on the farm 30 years ago. I was the in house Pseudo-Quack or farm vet. Supervised by a well vetted Veterinarian. I kept very stringent records back then as because as is today. If you send a animal to market and the test for antibiotics in that meat should show positive. You would not just be reprimanded with a quarantine, but possibly even fine and loose the price of the meat. I recieved a call one morning about a positive test. I also had herd of other growers being nabbed for positive tests. In those days there testing involved a swab test of the liver and a no growth zone around the swab. I was adamant that my records showed all the correct time frames to the meat that I shipped. They were investigated and then I suggested are the Federal inspectors knowledgeable in reading these tests. I do not know how this was investigated after this. But it was found that the Federal investigator did not know how to read the test correctly. This no growth zone was naturally formed with natural antibodies in the blood. But when the growth zone ran over the I believe ½ in. no growth zone. This was said to be positive. We survived that traumatic experience. But never received the money from the meat or an apology from the Government.

This experience makes be wonder as our testing today for Syphilis I suspect still gives great weight to a corkscrew Spirochete for diagnosis. Today there is a great emphasis on the corkscrew Spirochete of Borrelia Burgdorfirii. There is much talk of uptick in Syphilis by 44%. This makes me wonder about the uptick in Syphilis diagnosis and similar corkscrew spirochetes, that both Syphilis and Borrelia Burgdofoii have in common. Although these spirochetes are different to the trained eye. They may not be as different to an inexperience eye. I think this brings me to suggesting a thorough look at what we are teaching these lab students today. Do they have the expertise in diagnosing some of these like diseases.

Wait or Treatment

Posted on June 4, 2018 at 1:06 PM Comments comments (6)

I was asked - Wouldn’t it be wise to take the doxy treatments to assure against infection? I would not want to take a chance.
My response as a Tick Borne disease advocate and NOT a medical (Non) Lyme Literate person of the new Tick Borne disease sciences.

As a rule Joie, this is where it can get dicey. IN MY OPINION. If you briefly have a tick on you. Should you be tested or treated. Every situation is different. I will be plain and simple. If you have a tick embedded a short time. Typical Doxi 2 pill treatment or 21-day protocol treatment will be a joke in my book for the 20% that will go onto late stage Lyme ( suggest that % is much higher). Plus that 2 pill or 21 days treatment protocol will cancel out any possibly bull's eye rash that only shows less than 40% of the time anyway. To top that off we are finding more Borrelia strains that don't produce a bulls eye rash. At this time in these trying times of Lyme. I would rather keep all options open, Send tick to be tested, get results back in just a few days as incubation is 21 days for Borrelia. Take pictures of the embedded tick. If a tick is positive, Likely you will be too. If a tick is negative. Keep info, pay attention to yourself for 6 months to a year. You will likely show something in less than a couple days to 6 months. That can be longer to years. The important thing in my brain is, You are on it and are able to get on it. Every situation is different. IN MY OPINION, Remember that I am not a Doctor but I could teach a few how to handle the situation that is not taught with more than a mere introduction to Tick related issues at the big U. Thank you Joie for striking this response. I will move this to my web/blog.

 I saw a Mayo promo for Bone Morrow Transplants this morning. I thank them for all they do for the suffering. But I was inspired to respond. with - 
 One trouble. Mayo or their affiliates doesn't address late stage Lyme. We need to start diagnosing and treating Lyme if it is Lyme and not leukemia. I have talked with some that have been through all the Leukemia therapies only to discover they had Lyme and coinfections all along. And a Transplant may help for a while. Yes, I am not a Doctor. But if you are looking at Leukemia. You should also eliminate Tick-Borne disease issues. 98% of greatest Hospitals in the world are not there yet. An Infectious Disease specialist will say we don't do Lyme here. Lyme is an infectious disease. 60% of Non-Lyme Literate Infectious Diseases Doctors know of this dreadful disease and are afraid to say anything against the powerful IDSA/CDC Pharma driven Non- Lyme Literate Medical community. Ask your Doctor to take a look at the ILADS treatment guidelines at Ilads (International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society), or National Guidlines Clearinghouse Ilads training or chatting withe a Lyme Liteate person with more than 15 minute introduction to Lyme at the Big U.

Seeking LLMD's

Posted on January 28, 2018 at 8:49 AM Comments comments (8)
  I was just leafing through my go to for medical updates. WOW, I think any child with sinus infections and adults with new developing sinus issues should be checked with a proper Tick Borne disease test by a Lyme Literate MD. Not necessarily an Infectious disease MD. Proper knowledge, proper testing is not in our best hospitals yet. But may be in a doctors office in a best hospital. Seeking the hospital will likely not be rewarded, but seeking the right doctor may get you the right answers. IN MY OPINION,,,,, All have great knowledge and links to great Tick borne disease knowledge most likely up to date Lyme Literate Doctor referral lists. IN MY OPINION Knowledge is the only positive tool we have for now.

  I answered an appeal for help today from a frustrated late stage Lyme sufferer that is now in the darkness of lyme. This might seem harsh to a non-lyme sufferer. But from those who have made the journey, my reply is as true as it gets for many. My reply follows.


  You do what many of us have had to do. Get a good bankruptcy lawyer. Took me 5 years, and by that time. I was worthless and wished I was dead. Took my wife 5 rejections to get her last rejection, and this poor girl was on her last leg. Then the courts waited until she was old enough to force her into retirement and now she gets very little of that. This country is not here for you. Don't count on this country or its courts. The last disability judge my wife had was middle eastern and we could not understand him well. As soon as you start realizing reality. Your life will start turning around. Sucks to be us but bankruptcy deterred the families hate for us and called off the wolves until you and only you can get your defense together that you are waiting to come from a mysterious place. This lyme epidemic is the worst evil a living soul can challenge. You can do this or give up. Only two choices. We are here too and we have been there. Welcome to hell. We will see you on this side when you get back from your journey. With love, support and maybe some guidance from the Lyme community. You can get here. You will see life through different eyes, You will feel life through different skin, you will experience life through an expert. David R Thomas

My CBD Evaluation for Persister Lyme

Posted on May 4, 2017 at 10:47 AM Comments comments (46)
  MY CBD EVALUATION --- I have been using CBD for over a month now for a persister return. I have found that I feel better, it does everything that it says it does. I find it relieves some pain, clears some of my brain fog, my rest is much more restful. As for some that find no results at all. That may happen to some that I have found that respond negatively to just about anything. And the negatives are being totally honest. This is why it is important to try something but not to stick with something because somebody says it will help when it does not. I am amazed at the results of my free CBD results this far. 
  IN MY OPINION - Pure CBD is what it says on bottle. I made it through the depression and anxiety of lyme issues long ago so I am not a real good witness to that aspect of CBD. But I do not experience the high as you would if it had THC (TetraHydroCanabidiol) or High in it. I do feel relaxed I think, The pain from muscle spasm in my back from persistors and pushing myself go away almost immediately. It is very important to hold this CBD under your tongue, I have found. Hold under tongue for 60 to 90 seconds so that it can mainline into your blood stream. The bottle says that 15 drops are the serving size. I would start with a much lower dose such as 4 - 6 drops. I did the 15 drops right of. I am not sure what happened. Maybe did not blend well with heart meds or body was not use to it. But I am sure I experience some anephalactic shock. from the 15 drops. So it is a great idea when trying anything new like this to have Benadryl or in my case, Loratidine on hand. I had been through Anephalactic shock before and thought would die. So be very careful. But I do see some great results from CBD. REMEMBER I am Not a doctor and I do wish for all to be under a good LLMD doctors care. But we Lymee's understand the rest of that argument. IN MY OPINION

lyme and Friends

Posted on February 18, 2017 at 9:10 AM Comments comments (2)
IN MY OPINION: lYME AND FRIENDS. The human defense mechanism drives people to flee what they do not understand. They don't want that issue upsetting their lives and so they flee. They also absolutely will not get it until they get it. If they don't already have it. Then they will be alone without those who suffered before them. They need us but just don't know it yet. When their child is diagnosed with ADHD, ADD. Your Mom or Dad or maybe sibling is diagnosed with Alzheimer's, MS, Crones, or any of 350 different misdiagnoses that may be available without the proper clinical or proper testing that we do not have yet. You will be ready. Prepare yourself to be the teacher. You have been chosen. BE THERE. I AM.

A Sign For Change

Posted on October 24, 2016 at 8:50 PM Comments comments (7)
  A fellow Lymee was just found positive for Lyme and asked me what could be said to the non-lyme believing Family physician in the defense of the test positive by a Lyme Literate Physician. This person was afraid of a scolding for chasing a positive diagnosis that they would not test for. The following is what you can say to your doctor and if they don't take that info as a good sign for change. It is time for a different doctor.

 You can tell them that their idea that the cal. I-genex test is always positive is false. The reason for such a high % of positive tests are: 

1. These subjects are being found by Lyme literate people and suggested to get this test. 

2. The I-genex test is roughly 99.9% accurate in sensitivity.

3. Their Lyme knowledge comes from Lyme Corp which is the education group designed and deployed by the IDSA LYME guidelines writers to undermine the past 15+ years new Lyme sciences. 
   Incidentally, the guidelines that this Dr.s office is using has been pulled from the go to info place at the (NGC) National Guidelines Clearinghouse for being outdated. The remaining guidelines are the (ILADS) "International Lyme and Associated Diseases" Lyme guidelines written by new sciences and scientists of Lyme, backed by over 700 written papers on the subject . None of which backs the previously IDSA published guidelines. Yet The CDC is still following the orders of the old Lyme guidelines writers. Our Infectious disease health department in our hospitals has been duped. They are misdiagnosing because there is more money in the symptoms of Lyme disease than curing it or in the late stage sufferers case, making them more comfortable and possibly productive tax paying citizens again. IN MY OPINION
