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that we may be straying from a very important fight and acknowledgment of Lyme and Tick-borne related diseases with outdated non-knowledgeable lab and test readers and scientists.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

An update

Posted on January 16, 2020 at 10:13 PM Comments comments (0)
 I am the author of Journey Through Challenge and Lyme in advocacy that tries to stay with the symptoms of vector-borne diseases depression, neuropathic pain, anxiety, as we all face this pandemic from Lyme, Bartonella, Babesiosis and many others. We hope you can find something that will help your decision making to better health. 
  I feel there is some progress being made in this dreadful disease and there is much work to be done still in the future. The suffering still suffers, the ignorant is still doubtful of problems. The profit takers are still clinging to their profit margins. Knowing the sky will likely fall when Tick born diseases are eradicated, elimanating the high percentage of infectous diseases that move so much money.

An Anecdotal view of my experience

Posted on November 11, 2019 at 11:11 AM Comments comments (0)
  Federal proposal for $100,000,000 to fight the lyme and Tick-borne diseases fight.
IN MY OPINION - Not anywhere close to 1.something billion for 300 something Zika patients. But 450,000 per year Tick-borne infections x 6yrs. recovery x 10 misdiagnosed or covered-up.= 27,000,000 people and growing are infected x 5 / 6 yr. increments for 30 yr. sufferers = 1.3+billion sufferers for the 30 yrs suffering without proper diagnosis and many will not realize the infection or properly be realized as sick and dying of Tick related issues. Wow, that does feel like population control doesn't it. The problem is, we didn't die. And we were told that all of the mortuaries were built to process the dying Baby boomers - IN MY OPINION, I have not seen any standing room only customers at our mortuaries lately.

Children and Leaves

Posted on October 18, 2019 at 1:32 PM Comments comments (0)
  In response to an FB article and stopping children from playing in leaves. I feel experts are questionable here. Some facts are off. Ticks can freeze and thaw is suggested. Stop all activities in the outdoors, such as forestry and outdoor industries where parents work and come home. Police and first responders swim in tick habitat all the time. They also go home. This is not something we can hide behind. We could also lock children in their rooms, eliminate all pets in house, take away their fun times. The mind developing activities that are very much outside activities for most. And then we can truly have a world of zombies that stalled in growth with no imagination for problem-solving or conquering this devastation that is going to and is already attacking the population. I feel it is not all about the children and not knowing. This is also about the adult population that refuses to take this monster seriously. Nope, I do not agree. Tick checks, watchful eyes, active parents are the best way to keep our futures and population healthy and growing. Until this gov., Big Pharma, medical arrogant community. stockholder controlled debacle is turned around. We are going to lose a few. But this fight is now on us and we must stop taking away the perks of life and start cleaning up the mess. IN MY OPINION

Silence is Golden in Lyme

Silence is Golden in Lyme

  I have been thinking that when the top medical Infectious Diseases hospitals tell you they don't do Lyme diseases there. Or say they know about Lyme diseases and use inferior testing and treatments or none at all. I have found them to be puppets of higher powers. The less there is mentioned of Tick-borne related issues in the medical community, the more profit from misdiagnosed symptoms for the stock Holders of BIG PHARMA that happens to be the controllers of the puppets. IN MY OPINION.

 " The Lyme Community voices must become louder than silence. The costs of lawsuits must exceed the profit margins before stockholders will allow change."

Update to Disulfiram experience

Posted on September 30, 2019 at 5:22 PM Comments comments (0)
  I have improved just starting and stopping at the one month period. Have not started back yet but will start much slower when I do. I have been off for about two months now. I really need to slow down because my previous heart issues will stop me if I don't. But I am doing things again and I believe the DSF had helped greatly in the low dosages that I was taking. I believe a major herx is why I had trouble, and now I am glad I took the DSF. I start with a quarter 250mg pill every day for two weeks. done great, then half 250 mg pill for two weeks. I started nerve jerking and synapses in the nervous system that I was not able to rest with. That meant my heart was likely doing the same thing. So I stopped. I just may be one of those highly sensitive individuals that respond to lower dosage. Thank you all here for sharing and caring. keep talking.

My Disulfiram Experience

Posted on August 23, 2019 at 10:03 AM Comments comments (3)
  Hello all, I am still here after my first month of Disulfiram. For me, this has been an experience that has helped me with some issues and I believe added some issues. I will explain here.
  1. Before I started Disulfiram, I am sure I was starting a relapse of Bartonella, a remnant of my Lyme issues, and I felt as long as I had the opportunity to give this new disulfiram treatment (possible Tick-borne disease treatment) a try. I did that. I was very happy with the results I got on 75 mg for two weeks. I am now free of those issues such as creaking of the neck, nerve twitching or facial tick.
  2. I then went to 125 mg's and I found I didn't do much better but developed nerve synapses that I have experienced in my past. I found taking my Loratidine/claritins active ingredient calmed this down. This told me I am experiencing an allergic reaction. So then I decided to take a day off before I move onto 250 mg”s. I went through a depression for about two days and I was very tired with heavy legs. I shut down another day off DSF.
  3. I am stopping my therapy of DSF and going eventually back to what has been working for me. I chose DSF because I didn't want to always depend on Reverting back to antibiotics if necessary. But with Stevia, e-oils, a doctor that is listening and will help. I do not see where I can continue this DSF treatment for myself. This is only for me.
  4. I believe in the Low and slow method for DSF. This gave me the opportunity to way this out as I increased the dosages. But I have found it to be more than this worn-out body wants to challenge.
  5. This is not a negative or positive for DSF therapy. But I am now sure it is not a cure-all for us all.
I hope this helps,
David R Thomas – Tick-Borne diseases advocate

 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

Inquiries of Longihornis Tick

Posted on May 29, 2019 at 3:09 PM Comments comments (0)
  I have been getting more than a couple of concerned inquiries about the Longihornis Tick.   Or Asian Tick.
I have also been reading up on the Longihornis Asian Tick. Appears any human infections are considered accidental. This Tick carries the SFTS ( Severe Fever Thrombocytopenia  Syndrome) ( A dog disease )Only deadly to 20 to 30% of those that get it. (I suspect cross-contamination.)

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.
