THROUGH CHALLENGE and Lyme Disease

SPRING IS HERE

Hello all,
It is another year so I thought I would refresh your memory for a great summer coming.
   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.

I COULD NOT STAY

 This poem struck my mind this morning as I decided to take out an address I no longer needed.

I COULD NOT STAY

My duty today for a friend,
a warrior who could not stay.
She was strong as she was quiet,
we heard little at the end.
Her mate was always there,
with his strength and to defend.
As this monster inside her,
he would keep until the end.

My duty today for a friend,
a warrior who could not stay.
When we met she was my teacher,
for a journey that will get deeper.
She was blessed so many ways,

Why are LLMD's so scarce?

Why are LLMD's so scarce was asked on a FB post this morning.  I feel I have the answer or at least a fairly accurate one. I will try to make sense of the journey that put our medical community in such a peril as it is with Lyme disease. First there is the Doctors of years ago. When they were called away from their jobs that made them money, to the home to help advise and troubleshoot the problems in family health. They were more often then not trouble shooters and very good at thinking outside the box. In those days Mom's were the Doctors of the household. Todays doctors choose a very lucrative occupation if they have the grades to get into the big University in the first place. For the most part. They know that all can be explained away on a test or there is a more experience professional around the corning or online that can steer that medical professional in the right direction. This is where we have lost our way. There are no troubleshooters left , or at least not many who have the drive to explore outside that box of knowledge they received at the big U. I am familiar with this kind of thinking because I was a farm boy and was quite handy sometime s at criticle thinking as I call it. Or thinking outside the box which happens to be where Tick Borne Related issues Live at this time, outside the box. If we are going to beat this problem. We will need Doctors who can think and use their brain for more than a 9 to 5 computer search administrator. This is not working. There needs to be a spot on the medical entry exam that gives some kind of idea where the problem solving skills are for that individual applying for med school is. Lyme is not a test diagnosis and as I am reading. There will not be one anytime soon. I solute the LLMD's are doing that can think outside the box and those who are not afraid to jeaperdize ther profeshion to help their patient as they took the oath for in the first place. I also thank those who do not step up for they could also make this dredful disease much worse by just waiting for the test.

New Lyme strains

  In regards to the new possible Mayonii Lyme causing sprirochet/bacteria. I am thinking it is a bit premature yet to assume all of Bobbi Pritt's science is on cue. Read article a view video. Mayonii is developed from a long standing 200 year old one bacteria, one disease theory of science. The new sciences are from the relatively new Lyme sciences that are helping those through the difficulties of lyme and associated diseases. I am not ready to sign off on this finding yet. In my opinion and I am not a Doctor or a scientist but I am a knowledegable Lyme sufferer and I will keep watching.

A HEAVY HEART

Good morning all,
 My morning opens with a heavy heart this morning as one of my closest loved ones lay in a hospital bed taking antibiotic transfusions for an infection. This person (TP) suffers greatly with a RA diagnosis and also must take RA anti-inflammatory meds to control the pain. (as subscribed). There by killing the autoimmune system and allowing infections to return or move from place to place. TP has suffered so long and yet TP has such great trust in the medical community that I believe I will be watching TP fade away.

Blood supply/Babesia

An Article I recently read set me to writing once again. The article talked about Blood supply contamination, Babesia, Transfusions. But the thing that triggered this article today was the fact that this hospital is sending blood tests to organizations that do not recognize Tick Borne related diseases. The article follows.  
 This article as a Lyme and Tick Related disease advocate and survivor, Scares the bajeebers out of me. To suggest that because a world class hospital is involved in diagnosing and testing of Lyme and Tick borne related issues is absurd.

LYME TREATMENT GUIDLINES


 I just tried to click on Ilads link in NGC (National Guidelines Clearinghouse) and it said it was presently unavailable. Go figure. Couldn't find ilads or natural treatment guidelines at all. BUT I played around a bit. I came to the IDSA guidelines. Stay with me.
http://www.ahrq.gov/research/findings/factsheets/errors-safety/ngc/national-guideline-clearinghouse.html 
  ===================
Then in that search bar at NGC print ilads guidelines/lyme and you will go to the ilads guidelines

SOME SAY

Back in Jan. 2012 I wrote down a thought process (Poem) that I shared with fellow Lyme sufferers. And now as I have a better understanding of silent and invisible illnesses. I would like to share this again. With a wider audience and the invisible illness community. I wish all 2015 sufferers of anything a better 2016. We Lyme sufferers know. Poem follows.
 
 "Some Say" 
  .
Some say I’m poor, 
I say I’m priceless. 
Some say I don’t have anything, 
I say I got more.

Christmas Trees and Ticks

Christmas trees and Ticks. I thought I might try to give a little help to the fear of Ticks in trees. IN MY OWN OPINION. I think if you could take a white sheet or pillow case and gently work the white material in and out and around slowly through the tree. That would give you something of an idea if the tree is infested or not. You could do this at the place of purchase. For your info. I have included a short video My wife and I took of a tick speeding away on a piece of paper towel after extracting it from my leg.

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.
