Babesia and Paniculitis

Linda's liniment treatments are seeming to be not so many because I am not reminded to give her the Liniment massage. I still feel getting the lyme under control is important. But we have had real good luck eliminating the inflammation and nodules with the liniment. I should also add she suffered before her Lyme Disease diagnosis with failing kidneys. Her kidneys now are replenishing themselves and all tests say they are normal. I did not mention where I had put this theory together. I was researching sub-dermal nodules and found a match with Paniculitis. My doctor laughed at me. He never heard of it. But I found that Paniculitis is suspected to come from different things and one of the things was Babesia. If you know Tick borne diseases. You know Babesia is a co-infection to Lyme disease. Meaning you can get co-infections along with your lyme infection. Babesia is a Malaria cousin and a MicroBacterium. I believe in the theory that if you don't get rid of the Bacterium first you may find it harder to get rid of other tick borne illnesses. It is suspected that Paniculitis will attack the pancreas and the liver and kidneys. Possibly be tide to type 2 diabetes. Linda is getting that under control better now that we are getting rid of toxins and the Babesia. Babesia in turn depletes the kidneys ability to filter toxins through the urine. These toxins build up in the sub dermal fat membrane under the skin and they are like prickly needles against the nerve endings. I thank my lymee friend for striking yet another very good article for my blog at throughchallenge.

Time Travel 22317



Good day all,

I woke this morning pondering the puzzle book with Metals as the subject of the project. In the puzzle was Manganese. I being a fairly deep thinker was quickly transported to another dimension of why we are here, Why we are not there, How can we get there, Are we already making that journey.

I slowly started with Manganese. First of all I was never with the understanding that Manganese is a metal. A mineral maybe. But the more I thought about this, Metal?/mineral, I found myself back to the creator recipe starter of iron.

lyme and Friends

IN MY OPINION: lYME AND FRIENDS. The human defense mechanism drives people to flee what they do not understand. They don't want that issue upsetting their lives and so they flee. They also absolutely will not get it until they get it. If they don't already have it. Then they will be alone without those who suffered before them. They need us but just don't know it yet. When their child is diagnosed with ADHD, ADD. Your Mom or Dad or maybe sibling is diagnosed with Alzheimer's, MS, Crones, or any of 350 different misdiagnoses that may be available without the proper clinical or proper testing that we do not have yet.


  Merry Christmas everybody. 
  There has been a great gift to you and your unborn descendants this year. This is a great step forward. I don't know if you have heard the good news yet. But we got the federal constitution to include Lyme language and Tick related disease issues in the new 21rst Century Cures Act. It is now law and must be dealt with. And Lyme advocates Doctors for and against, scientists must be present and represented at the group discussions. How about that. I would send you the link but you can get that at  The 


  WILL YOU, Will your doctor who claims to have all the answers. Set aside the arrogance bred ignorance that high strung and hard wired individuals such as many Brainiaks in our medical world possess, turn there mind to possibilities outside their training to help a loved one or someone outside their respective training. Or WILL YOU, Will your doctor take it upon themselves to learn the next real world of Auto immune diseases diagnostics and illnesses. Or will they say, that is not my specialty.

Alpha Gal and meat Allergies

  1. Great article for meat allergy sufferers from the Alpha Gal page Matthew Henderson
       So, it was about three and one half years ago I was diagnosed with this life changing allergy. Not having grown up in tick country, I can remember all three of my bites, including the last one that passed this to me, and forever altered my trajectory. That last one occurred in Amelia, VA while I was enjoying some recreational shooting. That was a Friday in late March, and I found the insidious ...creature on the Sunday.

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.


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.


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.
 In response,
 1.  I am a Lyme Advocate seriously trying to help people like yourself seek and find answers.

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 ( President Linda Wales for this session of the PALRN (Pennsylvania Lyme Resource Network) 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.
