TICKNOLOGY – Educate Yourself

Tick Amblyomma sculptum (Acari: Ixodidae), maleI have had a tick-borne mammal allergy, Alpha-Gal (AG) for a year now. I am constantly aware, read all ingredients on everything, let everyone know wherever I go, including restaurants, and take more care outdoors (I am an outdoor gal and gardener).  I was bitten by a tick yesterday (May 16) in the late afternoon. I found it right away and it never got to be there long. I have to now be aware of anything that may change on the bite site, and send the tick in for evaluation. After having a tick bite and acquiring a tick-borne allergy/lyme, I can react to all other insect bites more than I did before, and I can have higher reactions each time I have a new tick bite.  It is crazy.  I cannot take any chances. I have been anointed and take great peace that I will not have any reactions from this bite. I did have a minor reaction last night about 11:30 p.m. for about 15 minutes with a high pulse and shaking as I usually do if I come in contact with anything mammal. I take large doses of charcoal and an herbal allergy tincture mix for reactions and do not have breathing issues or other bad issues associated with the common allergy to food.

I want everyone to be aware that this is a growing issue in our nation, and all over the world.  I believe it is worse because of gut health and bad genetics in our DNA, and each generation seems to be getting worse, even healthy people like me.  Our world is polluted and corrupted. We have not taken care of this land as we were told to do by the Creator.  But, I digress.  I have a website to share that will help you visualize the vastness of this tick-borne stuff – https://www.ticknology.org/.   Please educate yourselves and others.

Please watch for and share my upcoming classes on food allergies and sensitivities, and others, covering the sources such as ticks and more.  This information can be found on my class information page.


If you’ve benefited from the information I share, would you please take a moment to leave feedback for my page, and on my google

Bartonella and Other tick-borne Transmitted “Weeds”

I recently shared some information from Dr. Bill Rawls about the stealth microbe Borrelia. Hopefully you’ll find his information on Understanding Bartonella (last updated 3/1/17) just as useful.

Bartonella is typically spread by biting insects (fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, sandflies, lice, chiggers, biting flies, scabies, mites, and even louse-eating spiders), but can also be transmitted by contaminated bites (of animals), scratch (cat scratch), and ingestion.

Infection by any bartonella species is called Bartonellosis.

There is a lot of information in the article – what Bartonella is, how it can be spread, typical symptoms, and information on typical and natural solutions.

Dr. Rawls is a physician who overcame Lyme disease through natural herbal therapy. You can learn more about bartonella in Dr. Rawls’ new best selling book, Unlocking Lyme. Also be sure to check out Vital Plan, Dr. Rawls’ naturally powerful immune support protocol and get your free personalized supplement recommendation.

Stealth-type Microbes That Can be Transmitted by Ticks

I found the following information from Dr. Bill Rawls very informative.

Over several years of persistent effort, I was able to recover my health completely — the things that I learned along the way changed my life forever. My struggle with chronic Lyme disease taught me things that most other physicians do not know. I now use that knowledge to help others understand and overcome this often frustrating illness.

 

Borrelia, the Misunderstood Microbe

Retrospectively, I may have harbored Borrelia burgdorferi (the microbe that causes Lyme disease) for years before I actually developed symptoms. I’m an outdoor person; tick bites have always been an everyday affair.

It’s not uncommon for people to harbor Borrelia and not know it; stealth is this microbe’s middle name.

Lyme disease is mostly transmitted by nymphal ticks, which are about the size of the pin. They bite, transmit the microbe, and then drop off — most people aren’t even aware of being bitten. Because symptoms of the initial infection are so mild (if they occur at all), it’s not uncommon for people to be completely unaware of being infected.

And Borrelia isn’t the only microbe to worry about. Ticks carry many microbes that have similar characteristics to Borrelia. What they all have in common is stealthy characteristics that make them hard to find–and even harder to get rid of.

If immune system function is robust, a person can harbor these types of microbes indefinitely without ever having symptoms. When illness does occur, it’s typically chronic and debilitating, but not life-threatening. Additionally, the degree of chronic illness is highly variable. Some people are severely debilitated, while others are only marginally miserable.

What You Need to Know About Borrelia

  • Borrelia rarely causes life-threatening illness, but it can make you desperately miserable for a lifetime.
  • There are 20 known species of Borrelia that can cause human illness (not just Borrelia burgdorferi), and it is not uncommon for people with Lyme disease to harbor at least two species.
  • Beyond Borrelia, there are hundreds of species of stealth-type microbes that can be transmitted by ticks. Mycoplasma and Bartonella are the most common, but there are many many others. Most everyone on the planet harbors some stealth microbes without knowing it.
  • All these factors make Lyme disease extremely difficult to diagnose; lab tests are notoriously unreliable, especially in chronic illness.
  • Because Borrelia is so difficult to diagnose and can be harbored without causing symptoms, no one really knows how many asymptomatic carriers there are worldwide.

Crazy Healing; Crazy Life; Will Conquer

Okay, I have been researching and speaking with experts in microbial infestation (ie: alpha-gal strains, lyme strains, bartonella, Epstein Barr, and many more). I believe, after all this, I have more than one issue from the tick transmitter, and alpha-gal may be on the low end. This is crazy stuff. I believe also, that I have found a path, paved by the Father in his created resources, to get rid of all of it! I know it, in fact, and it will occur. I am confident. I am going to have to be patient, however. You all may have some of these causing your chronic and autoimmune deficiencies and issues. I am on a protocol with a biofeedback device, herbs, oils, and nutrition, to rid the things I have found in me (dormant or otherwise).

The Struggle is Real

You decide to go kayaking, get to the place, and go to put on sunscreen, then realize one BIG THING – ingredients. You read the ingredients only to find that the sunscreen has glycerin in it, and you find nowhere on the package the words “vegan” or “vegetable based products” or “vegetable glycerin”.

Glycerin is not always vegetable based, so if the product does not say, you do not know. You have to make a decision to take the risk of a reaction later that day for using the product, or you take the risk of being burned. What would you do? What have you done in a similar situation?

I took the burn that day. I had a long sleeve swim shirt and a huge garden hat, so I knew I had upper body protection, but I had nothing for my legs. An hour in I remembered my towel in the dry bag, got it out and used it for the remaining hours we were on the water floating down the river. I thought I may have caught the “burn” in time, but each time I took the towel off my legs were revealing the hour of sun they had gotten. By the end of the day, I had red thighs, very red thighs! It could have been worse, but I was able to cover well and keep from bad burns. If I had not had a long sleeve shirt and a big hat and towel to cover, I would have had to stay behind and not go on the river, take the other risk of a bad allergic reaction later, or just let myself get burned badly and live with weeks of pain. (What I got was bad enough)

I now have non-mammal sunscreens and skin products. I found out about glycerin being animal based when I had a reaction to massage cream not long ago, and it has caused me to look at everything I use, and change it if needed.

The struggle with food allergies, especially Alpha-gal mammal allergy, is real, folks. We have to make decisions all the time that can alter little things in an entire plan. We have to cook separate meals for ourselves, take our food and drinks everywhere, ask people to change their food choices, and so the list goes on.

Here is another situation I have been in many times:

We go out to eat on occasion. On the day we went kayaking (story above), we had been on the water longer than expected, getting off the water and able to leave about 5 p.m. We were hungry so we went to a place to eat. I will name the place because they are taking many strides to make it easy for allergy people to enjoy eating out without too much struggle, Ruby Tuesday. I ordered the Turkey burger and of course had to ask for no cheese and no dairy dressing, and that it be cooked on a grill not being used by anything else. They had trained the staff and were prepared with a special “allergy” grill. YES! you read that right. They have a special allergy grill and pans, and they are cleaned after each use and used only for allergy people’s food. The asking was a struggle and I hated it, but the fact that they had a plan for me already in place helped me to get through it. Not every place is like this, however. THE STRUGGLE IS REAL FOLKS.

Eating out, cooking at home, buying makeup or other skin products, using sunscreen, buying soap and shampoo – and the list is long, friends – is just not what it used to be for us allergy people.

We have to make the best of it however. I am posting all I can with resources and links to help you all live in this “phase”. I am also on a mission to find a way out of this. I am on a journey just like you. I would like to encourage all who have no allergies to have patience; it is a struggle for you all also, I know both sides now. I will do another post for those with the struggle to live with and interact with food allergy people when they have none. The frustration and struggle is real on both sides of the spectrum.
