                    My Lyme Opinion

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,

Hello all,
It is another year so I thought I would refresh your memory for a great summer coming.
   I am here as I said to give you an idea of how to enjoy the out doors this year if you are rightfully concerned for your health and your family's health. Tick problems and Lyme disease has become a very important issue in the last few years. I feel this is just the beginning and if we don't take heed into this threat, it can be a very sad health issue for you and your family. But all is not lost if you learn to play the game as they say. You need to learn to protect yourself and learn the different ways that put you in jeopardy of tick born illnesses such as lyme disease and it's different co-infections such as Babesia, Ehrlichiosis, candidia, bartonella. There are different recipes on the Internet by looking up Natural Tick Repellent in your search bar. I understand it works well as long as it is followed correctly. I like the natural recipes that include aloe vera gel, rose geranium, and lavender. You should use this abundantly and cover yourself very well with this natural repellent.
   Then there are those over the counter tick repellents that work well if you don't mind a little deet that works well. These repellents need to be understood before use. There are clothing products with Permethrin that is recommended for those outdoor people who are out in tick territory often like campers, hunters, woodsmen and the like. Permethrin also goes by the name Permanone and Duronon. This product is designed for clothing only.
   Then there is my favorite: DEET products for us guys and my family who don't go out into it that often or go out in short trips and not in to hiking like some, who don't get out that often an would like some extra, easy, spritz here and there kind of thing. You should make sure you spritz your legs, arms, neck, hair line. I like to fish and take my grandkids. So this is what I use. If I were to take them out often, I might chose the natural repellent. According to the sheet I have read up on about Deet. Adults should not use a deet product with no more than 30% deet, and children can use up to 30% deet according to age, size. Infants under 2 months of age should not be exposed to deet. There is much more you can learn about preventing Tick-borne disease by typing this into your browser or if you prefer, your representative office offers some very good brochures for the outdoors and protection of your family.
   Then there is the clothing issue. You are suppose to cover up everything when your out and about in the woods and trails to protects yourself. Take it from me or any of my hunting friends, it makes sense to protect yourself. But then there are those of us who are ten foot tall and bullet proof who will prevail no matter what the cost. Take it from me and my wife who both suffer greatly with lyme disease. We are no longer bullet proof.
  I am including my informative Homemade tick tube video for your interest. Have fun.
   You all have a wonderful spring and summer and maybe I will see you out there somewhere enjoying what nature has to offer. Remember if you take the precautions to prepare for the outdoors, you will appreciate everything it has to offer. David R Thomas
