THROUGH CHALLENGE and Lyme Disease

A Sign For Change

  A fellow Lymee was just found positive for Lyme and asked me what could be said to the non-lyme believing Family physician in the defense of the test positive by a Lyme Literate Physician. This person was afraid of a scolding for chasing a positive diagnosis that they would not test for. The following is what you can say to your doctor and if they don't take that info as a good sign for change. It is time for a different doctor.
  

 You can tell them that their idea that the cal.

LYMEE? ER or NO ER

Here is a helpful share from a knowledgable Lyme teacher.

When do people use common sense?
There are times in the Lyme community when people become so accustomed to so many symptoms. Pains will come and go within days. Brain fog and neuropathy come and go within weeks and so many unusual things are experienced.
A lot of folks in Lyme groups will discuss all these things with each other, but when is it time to think that a symptom is ER worthy? Especially when folks in hospitals are so Lyme friendly.

DO YOU HAVE LYME OR NOT?

Hello Everyone,
DO I HAVE ACTIVE LYME DISEASE OR NOT? Does anyone have experience with the test offered at Advanced-Labs that grows the Lyme spirochetes from your blood for up to 4 months to determine if you have active Lyme Disease in your body.  I have problems in so many different parts of my body and want to find out definitively if it's Lyme.  I would so appreciate any information you could offer.

Lyme Treatment Guidelines Update


Hello All,

  I wrote a wonderful update this morning and low and behold I lost it somehow as my website locked up and poof. So here is a second try.
  I am honored to be asked to sit in on the Conference call with Ahope4lyme,inc (www.ahope4lyme.org) President Linda Wales for this session of the PALRN (Pennsylvania Lyme Resource Network) www.palyme.org. The PALRN organization has been ask to represent and develop the needed education arm for educating the people of Pa. There was a lot talked about that would be premature to report but there is a take away that I would like to share.

PA. Opioid legislation

In regards to the Opioid over dosed deaths legislation headed to the Senate for a vote. I wrote this letter to my Representative. --- Hello Rep. Picket, I wrote Senator Yaw on this matter sometime ago. Did not receive anything back. I mentioned the Opioid problem is something that needs addressed. I also mentioned that the percentage of deaths to opioid deaths are about the same as suggested misdiagnosed late stage Lyme disease sufferers. Did you know the #1 killer of Lyme ...disease is suicide mostly because of the dreadful pain.

Fox5 video Lyme & Reason


Thank you all for tuning in to my site. I would like to share the Fox5 video special that needs to be shared with the public. Lyme Literate and Non literate. You need to know this. make special time to listen to Dr. Steven Philips and one of his clients. This is as true as it gets.

Cosponsoring Legislation

HB2242 is a great step forward and with the new PALRN (PA Lyme Resource Network) developing and well on their way to creating an education forum for teaching Lyme and their website at www.palyme.orgoffering some very good knowledge toward Tick related issues. There are some great Lyme resources out there and I support most of them includingwww.lymepa.org in South Eastern PA Lyme group and www.ahope4lyme.orgat North central PA and south central NY andwww.lymediseaseassociation.org.

CORRUPTION / MEDICINE

  This article follows my thoughts on finding the Mayo Clinic book on my front FB page this morning. As great as Mayo Clinic and partners are, something is not right.
And yet Mayo Clinic refuses to learn the new sciences of Lyme diseases to use there "Mayo Clinic Book of Alternative medicine and Home remedies", publish in 2013, well after the new Lyme sciences are starting to make sense. This book may be a very well put together book. I don't know. But I do know that they are partnered with the wrong crowd.

TIME FOR TICK RELATED UPDATING

 http://vermontlyme.com/lyme-corps-alert/ - Went to my favorite Hospital today. 1 of top 50 in the USA for an errand. I was minding my own business and in pulls this LYME CORP vehicle. Now I know this hospital absolutely denies and rejects all and any change of the 200 yrs old Pasture one bacteria one disease belief. But being one of the best at what this hospital does do. You would think they would have one ear open while greasing wheels of progress. The following article still in my mind is a valid and accurate problem since the old IDSA treatment guidelines came down and the new ILADS treatment guidelines were left up in the NGC. (National Guidelines Clearinghouse). And yet the CDC still uses the outdated IDSA guidelines. Ask your doctor to observe the new ILADS NGC posted Lyme and tick Borne disease treatment guidelines that were posted back in Oct. of 2014 I believe. It is time we start getting treated at the bite and an early diagnosis. When we move on to a specialist we loose time. Treatment at the bite=around $800.00-$1200.00 After 6 months or 1 specialist. $10,000+ after 1or 2 years = $100,000+. Those figures can be off some but they are close. IN MY OPIION.
