LYME DISEASE ADVOCATES
Gods in White Coat
Closed minded disaster
waiting to happen.
I have been hearing a
lot about how doctors have allowed this Lyme issue to mushroom into
the monster we have today. This is my own opinion and comes from many
insights and much reading and listening. As for my “Gods in White
Coat Mentality – GIWC ” terminology. That is reserved for doctors
who are very intelligent and can do many great things doctoring as
long as they stay with in the block of knowledge that this group of
???doctors??? received at the big U. These GIWC are not bad doctors
in most cases and are doing the best they can with the tools they
have to work with. It is unfortunate that
the growing population has forced the medical community to
compartmentalize each and every illness in the medical books. This
means that no one doctor can do all of this. But this is where the
monster begins. When our society built this “Closed Minded Disaster
Waiting to Happen.” The NON-GOVERMENT GROUP group (Infectious
Diseases Society of America - IDSA ) “GIWC – get it?” as I see
it in charge built a field of specialist who take care of each
disease as a one bacteria / one disease medical program.
There is also a chain of
command in the medical community that most of us don't think about.
Such as Doctors must at any cost follow the CDC protocol which is
designed, many times, by the IDSA who is thought by many to be
corrupt and lining it's pockets with Pharma and Ins. Payoffs with not
one New school Lyme Literate MD in the group.
This way as you maneuver
through the maze of specialists that will hopefully discover what is
wrong with you, you will get better with a correct diagnoses if it
don't kill you first. The trouble with that thinking is the term (
one bacteria / one disease ) is totally not Advanced Lyme / Late
Stage Lyme / or Chronic Lyme. Lyme is an immatater and can mimick
just about any auto-immune disorder out there. Lyme is something that
has been around for millions of years with proof in ticks found in
amber fossils. The problems with Lyme started when the world started
compartmentalizing the many illnesses into their groups. Along with
antibiotics over use or maybe even discovered in the first place. Or
thinking that all diseases are designed around an iron based bacteria
that lives on iron alone. Lyme has been found to be a Manganese based
bacteria that thrives on Manganese. “This is the only Manganese
based bacteria on earth so far as I understand it.” Nobody that I
know of ever talks about Manganese outside the university based
article I read this from. Lyme is no longer a one bacteria tick bite.
It is a Lyme and Tick borne disease issue along with the many other
diseases that you are likely to experience if you don't get that Lyme
issue under control early in the infection. I sometimes wonder if the
IDSA seen this coming as a world population control to level off the
growing numbers that the world community can not feed now. The
trouble with that theory is that Lyme kills in time and not in short
term. “in most cases-excluding Powasson, Bourbon viruses and others
being discovered as we learn more about tick borne related diseases.
So now we have a society
of 20-30% non productive sick society that is non productive and
dieing of slow agonizing death. Not to mention mental issues from
Neurological Lyme. Yes the ones that many people are complaining of
all the worthless souls out there who can not work. But as we learn
more about Lyme disease, there are more doctors and politicians and
somebodies, who are also getting Lyme and teaching that there is a
flaw in the medical community and it is a “GAME CHANGER” As I see
it if the Gods in White Coats don't step up soon and recognize the
term (LLMD – Lyme Literate Medical Doctor) and start taking this
“Closed minded disaster that is already happening,” seriously.
And I am not talking about that little 15 minute introduction to Lyme
disease you received at the big U. I am talking about taking an
acredited weekend course recognized by the AMA. We as a society will
see in my childrens time the first plague of the 21 century in full
color. That means it could be my Wife, mother, “father Past and I
wonder”, my child, grandchild or even as I and a Sister who are
already infected, friends, family will be touched. In closing. I do
not sugar coat well. Also sugar is a great food for Lyme, Cut the
sugar.If you would like a
lyme presentation to come to your community. Call your local Lyme
support group. You can find them at LDA.org or somebody you know who
has lyme. I myself work with Ahope4lyme.org and we give very
informed, fun, group presentations for both medical and Non medical
communities or I am invited to a family with issues who feel they
need too talk with someone outside their medical circle and ask
questions. Education is 90% of beating the fear of Lyme disease and
avoiding getting it. IN MY OPINION.

God bless all of us who are paving the way for future generations, They will read our story of denial by medicine, Courage by suffering, a shorten life by disease, and fight for their future. Keep writing my lymie friends for they will know why. By David R Thomas
I am coming along and finding myself through my challenges and sharing my Lyme experience with the world. I research patterns and successes through lyme issues and try too write and educate my readers through my blog/website at throughchallenge.com. As an advanced lyme or even sharing my knowledge as a lyme advocate. I feel I can update front line responders too the ravages of advanced lyme/late stage lyme and the many sufferers that are going to be coming forth in the future as we lyme advocates start too educate the NON- lyme literate community such as the present day Medical and first responder community. If you would like too be a part of this slowly changing but very worth while challenge. I would like to hear from you. I do presentations or go to peoples house's and homes or meet in a parking lot someplace and chat (In the shade). This is an epidemic, and mainstreme medicine just does not get it yet. Hense the term "They won't get it, Until they get it." Don't be one of them.
Thank you for you time,

I have taken the opportunity to let my wife video from her I-phone a short clip in how to accurately remove a tick within the boundaries of the new sciences of lyme disease. This method least excites the tick and does not regurgitate it's stomach into the bite area as bad and resulting in infection.
This video is just to show you how ticks move and how fast they move. They do not jump, skip, fly or flag you down. But ticks do target, grab, and wait patiently for their blood meal sometimes for weeks.
For those in the Local "Ahopeforlyme" group area.

PROBIOTICS FOR DEPRESSION MEDS?
A very interesting article that you can go to at:
LYME DISEASE RECOVERY
PROBIOTICS, ACIDOPHOLIS, ENZYMES
In my mind there is only one difference. Enzymes are good for added digestive support for those who have problems in the gut and we all need them. Probiotics are for those who are abusing there gut or digestive system with long regimen of meds such as Lyme sufferers and many other diseases that require many meds to recover. There are doctors who have never heard of such a thing and just know that it is not a good idea to put anybody on long durations of antibiotics. But they also have never ask their patients to support their digestive system with probiotics when taking any type of medicine that kills anything in the body. Many years ago when antibiotics were relatively new we never realized that if we kill the bad bugs in our system that we also must kill the good bugs. So why would it not make sense to back up an auto-immune system with a powerful probiotic. Now some people take low bacteria count probiotics that help with their digestive system. But for those on meds as I am with lyme. I have experimented with different products and found that anything with less than 2 billion count of bacteria isn't supplementing your immune system as it should. I have found for myself that 15 billion count bacteria,yes 15 billion count is my comfort zone. You can figure this out with your bodies signals such as bowl activity. I have found if I take more than I need, I will be to hard and if I don't take enough that I will be to loose. But the important thing is if I don't take anything, I will kill all the flora in m y intestines and I will die with it a deficient bowl. There are many products out there of probiotics and I have tried different one. There are powder forms that can get you up to 50 billion count or there are capsules that carry 22 billion count bacteria right to your intestinal tract and then does it's job. Remember that when taking powder form you must get that powder to the intestines where it does it's thing and most will die in the stomach digestive acids before it ever has a chance to get where it needs to be. I am becoming more of a believer in supporting our digestive systems as our food supply get tighter and the world requires larger fruits and vegetables to support the supply. There is a lot more than just taking probiotics when it comes to recovering from advanced lyme problems. But for those people out there who are suffering from over weight, gut problems such as diarhia, constipation, intestinal viruses. You might talk to your doctor about supplementing with a good probiotic that carries at least 20 billion count bacteria and going from there. I have found that price and quality does NOT always mean effectiveness. But for long term antibiotic treatment I am sold on high bacteria quality from reputable companies. If your doctor laughs at you as some will. You can talk to some very helpful nutritionist at vitamin shops such I have found at Natures Sunshine. Remember, I am not a doctor but an experience lyme disease recoverer. Talk to your doctor about supplements or a reputable nutritionist. David R Thomas

Good time too plan for SPRING
Hello all, 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 Repellant 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. 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
This is what I like to see. Now lets see results. I am sure my letters to Washington had very little too do with this development. But I did send letters and I feel like I am part of the solution. www.throughchallenge.com -------------------------ILADS Lyme SocietyFrom Washington, DC, 2013.
EFFORT TO PRIORITIZE LYME DISEASE PREVENTION ADVANCES IN HOUSE
Washington, D.C. (June 13, 2013) – Language directing the Department of Agriculture (USDA) to continue to build on research efforts to combat Lyme Disease and other tick-borne illnesses is included in an annual spending bill moving through Congress, according to Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA), a longtime leader on this issue.
The report language in the FY 2014 Agriculture Appropriations bill directs four agencies within the USDA to build on ways to protect humans and livestock from tick-borne illnesses, and to consider how such diseases impact the local economy.
The measure was approved by the House Appropriations Committee today. It is expected to come before the full House later this month. Since this posting the house has past the bill and now moves to the Senate.
Wolf has long been an advocate for victims of Lyme disease. He has hosted numerous community forums in the 10th district to help educate residents and medical professionals about the dangers of Lyme and how to protect themselves when outdoors from tick bites.
Lyme is the most prevalent vector-borne disease in the U.S. today. If not diagnosed and treated early, Lyme disease can lead to disseminated infection and can affect every system in the body, including the central nervous system. Later symptoms of Lyme disease include arthritis of weight-bearing joints; neurological problems, such as facial paralysis, encephalopathy, memory problems, weakness of the extremities; and heart symptoms, such as heart block and inflammation of the heart muscle. Lyme has been reported in every U.S. state and is becoming more prevalent.

I am asked why we are fighting something other than lyme disease with my wife Linda. ??????? CO-INFECTIONSI am asked often about my wife's and my lyme issues and I usually say “so so”. Buy then sometimes people want to know what some of these other ailments are that we talk of and why are we challenging yet another ailment. I begin to tell the person that lyme is often just one of the infections you get from a tic bite. (((( There is a brochure and booklet that you can get by contacting the Lyme assoc. Www.lymepa.org or your local lyme group as mine is www.ahope4lyme.org and they can help you further as much of my info. comes from those groups. You can also contact me at www.throughchallenge.com and my contact page at this website and join me in my blog.)))) There is a group of co-infections that often come with a tic bite and they are becoming more prominent as our lymers ( Lyme infected Doctors ) as we like to call them learn and challenge each infection that an individual may have. I was tested positive in 05 with lyme and the test was in infancy stages and very accurate for it became a good tool but not as good as a lyme literate doctor who often shared in the unfortunate infection. Now with better tests the labs can find different strains of tic bite diseases like B. Burgdorferi (LYME) which is what the lyme causing bacteria is called and then co-infections Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Bartonella, Rickettsia, Candida. These co-infections complicate things dramatically and may take years to tackle one or two, Or you may be able to take a certain med combo for one Co-infection and not for another. Sometimes You find stomach bacteria such as H.Pylori that is a gut infection that has been around infecting much of the worlds population by 50%. A person who has a lot of trouble keeping meds down could have H. Pylori. What I think happened in our experience was the meds were put into the gut to combat a tic related disorder and it would end up doing battle with the H Pylori that would always win the battle. Then the Doctor stepped back and took a test for H. Pylori and received a positive test. The H. Pylori was treated with 10day treatment and now we are treating lyme and co-infections. If you suffer from over bloating, Diarrhea, constipation, or just out of the blue stomach discomfort. You might talk with your doctor about it or have him refer you to a stomach specialist. There you have it in a nut shell and it gets much more complicated and to dump all of this on a mainstream family doctor is a bit much I'm sure. But as I say in many of my articles. A really good lyme doctor often either has lyme or is treating somebody very close to his heart with lyme. Thank you, Author-David R Thomas
