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that we may be straying from a very important fight and acknowledgment of Lyme and Tick-borne related diseases with outdated non-knowledgeable lab and test readers and scientists.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

 An experience I had last week inspired an article.
 I just went through one of the most scariest moments of my lyme experience. I went to bed last night not really feeling like sleeping but actually needed to sleep. Then about half an hour into my puzzle book I started feeling like I was having an anxiety attack. I have even been put on depression meds for this and it did help. But it was not depression, been there and know the difference.  Holly crap. I was shaking, my nerves were tight, Nerves felt like they were going too jump right out of my skin. My forearms and shins felt like leather. And my body could barely move on account of weakness. I could have very easily mistaken this for low blood sugar if it weren't for just snacking before I went too bed late after the game. This morning I feel different like I have just gone through hell with my body feeling cleansed or something. I am not fully through this but I can think again and write this letter. WOW what a ride. I had something like this sometime ago (about a year maybe). It was after I started treating for my Babesia and Bartonella. Those are two coinfections that people often get with a tic bite. All I can say is.  We are seeing to much of this and I wonder how many of those Psychiatric problems are Lyme and tic borne disease issues. I hope in the near future we will have a fairly cheap over the counter lyme test that all people can afford to test themselves and get help before it gets this bad. Well I am going rest today and perhaps thank a couple of good friends on Facebook for talking about theses issues. I think every service man 6 month's after coming back from war or another country or just showing signs of mental imbalance, should also be tested and they can be now if the test was approved.
 I would like to see all troubled drug addicts, alcoholics, mentally troubled individuals, infection plagued sufferers tested for lyme and tic borne related diseases for in my research and study of my experience and others we can now help these individuals if they have this. I am feeling like about 40 to 60% of misdiagnosed auto immune diagnosises are actually Lyme and tic borne disease related. If we keep pecking away at this and talking we may get to more young and old before they reach the "THE DEEP END"
   Then I found the next day having the very same experience that I thought was a herx reaction and found it to be an allergic reaction to my lyme meds that I need too change. Hello all, An update to my deep end article. I believe I just found my first allergic reaction to meds. It had me flying, twitching, shaking and just about ready to head to the hospital. Had another attack the day after the one I told you about and took a Benadryl and everything went back to normal. As normal is for me. So now I figure out which one it was since I quit meds for a day. Then I will talk to my lyme doc for direction. PS:: Always have those little red Benadryl pills on hand. you know the ones for be stings and such. Thank you all for your support and prayers. I know it has only been a few days. As most veteran Lyme sufferers will tell you. We are all figuring this monster out together. Have a good night.
