                    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.

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,

Lyme Disease Bacterium Switches Out Iron For Manganese To Evade Immune System, Study Shows
By: Stephanie Pappas, LiveScience Senior Writer
Published: 03/22/2013 12:52 PM EDT on LiveScience
The bacterium that causes Lyme Disease substitutes manganese for iron in its diet, a new study finds. The pathogen is the first known organism to live without iron.  
This talent helps the pathogen evade the immune system, which often acts against foreign invaders by starving them of iron.
Lyme disease is transmitted by tick bites and can cause fever, fatigue, headaches and rashes. If not treated promptly with antibiotics, the disease can start to attack the circulatory and central nervous systems, causing shooting pains and numbness as well as cognitive difficulties.
Now, researchers have found that to cause Lyme disease, the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi requires a large supply of manganese, which it uses instead of iron to make an important enzyme. The discovery could open new doors for the treatment of Lyme disease, said study researcher Valeria Culotta, a molecular biologist at the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health.
"The only therapy for Lyme Disease right now are antibiotics like penicillin, which are effective if the disease is detected early enough," Culotta said in a statement. Penicillin acts by attacking the bacteria's cell walls, she said, but some forms of the bacteria don't have cell walls.
"We'd like to find targets inside pathogenic cells that could thwart their growth," Culotta said.
Researchers have known since 2000 that Borrelia doesn't have the genes it would need to make iron-containing proteins. But no one knew what they were using instead. Culotta and her colleagues used specialized equipment to measure metal-containing proteins in Borrelia, detecting metal content down to parts per trillion.
They found that the bacterium substitutes manganese for iron, particularly in defensive proteins that help protect the pathogen against the immune system.
The researchers now plan to map out all of the metal-containing proteins in Borrelia and plan to learn how the bacteria acquire manganese from their environment. The manganese mechanism may be a chink in the bacterium's armor that humans can exploit, Culotta said.
"The best targets are enzymes that pathogens have, but people do not, so they would kill the pathogens but not harm people," she said.
The researchers reported their findings today (March 22) in the Journal of Biological Chemistry.
