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that we may be straying from a very important fight and acknowledgment of Lyme and Tick-borne related diseases with outdated non-knowledgeable lab and test readers and scientists.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

 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.

Lyme Diagnosis and future 61613
Hello All, I am here to talk about the Testing, diagnosing, dealing with and the so called curing of lyme disease and it's co-infections. I have been thinking greatly on this and have felt that IN MY OWN EXPERIENCE I could have had much better care if these few steps were in place while going through my 20+ year ordeal with and diagnosing of my lyme. Back when I started having these issues often with mild infections (sinus, bladder, lower back pain, neck pain, mental issues such as depression, anxiety, gloom and doom feeling of dieing, and many others ailments) and fatigue and overall laziness (malaise). I have discovered that when a doctor tests with the old Alisa test and gets a positive test. I should have been put on a med. regime right there as my history would have hinted somethings afoul. If I was better in a few days, I could have been kept on these meds for at least a couple of months. Instead it was protocol to backup the test with western blot and if that comes back negative or below the acceptable numbers for lyme, you did not have lyme. It is now fair to say in my mind that when reading this test that like pregnancy, you got it or you don't. Much of the time when a lyme test shows below the acceptable numbers for lyme. It just happens to be a low day. When I would call the doctor and tell him the problem, it would be days sometimes before I could get to see him and by that time , that attack of lyme has run it's coarse and will fail the test for a diagnosis. I feel the best way to deal with the suspicion of lyme is look at the history and the hints in the patients past. Such as if a patient is ill with an infection and is better in a few days and then a month or so later is down again with something else or even the same thing. This person needs to be evaluated for an auto immune problem. And that today in many cases fall in the lyme and co-infection category. I know for years I was told I am getting older and my hard work and play as a farmer was catching up to me. But at 57 years old, as I look back, I new that was not the case. I could almost sense there was something eating at me from the inside out. I express these feelings to my doctor for years and it just didn't catch in his mind. I am hoping that the mainstream medicine community will soon except the I-GENEX TESTING PROGRAM for Lyme and it's co-infections. It is very important to express co-infections because you can have one and not the other. It is a $200.00 test and must be sent to California with in a 24 hour period, But there are groups out there to help with cost if your insurance will not help as most will not. That help can be found through or your local or state lyme assoc. Most of the time you can have all of these diseases and really need a lyme literate doctor to work through getting over or even functional once again. But often there can just be one or two diseases that can be dealt with. As for the curing of lyme. If you can get at it early, I see good results from mainstream medicine that you can get over it. But the co-infections can still be there lurking and eventually show it's ugly head once again as something else. I feel the only way we will be able to get ahead of this epidemic is to have lyme clinics staffed with lyme literate personal that have and understanding of lyme and tick borne diseases. I don't feel we have that yet. Mainstream medicine is not ready to except that it has missed the boat while there is an epidemic eating up whole families with lyme and it's co-infections or children losing precious years because of political wt. and bureaucracy.
Beware if you are showing signs of ailments and your doctor is hinting that you may have this or that and could be talking anything such as some of the following list.
Lyme Disease is often misdiagnosed as:
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • ALS (Lou Gehrig Disease)
  • Attention Deficit Disorder ADD/ADHD
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue
  • Crohn’s/Ulcerative Colitis
  • Malignant Lymphoma
  • Chronic Pain
     Thyroid/Adrenal Problems
    • Schizophrenia
    • Autoimmune Diseases
    • Scleroderma
    • CREST Syndrome
    • Autoimmune Thyroid
    • Anxiety/Depression/Bipolar
    • Bipolar Disorder
    • Insomnia
    • Degenerative Disc Disease
    • GERD (acid reflux)
    • Lupus
    • Rheumatoid Arthritis
    • Vertigo/Migraines

      You need a Lyme literate doctor or profeshional to see you. Call your local or state or national lyme assoc and they will talk with you. If you can't find them get in touch with somebody who can find them. That is all for now and hope this helps some. Any questions please don't be afraid to ask.
