Good idea, but I like to use the herbs instead. Thermotherapy. I think I wouldn't have a problem to get a proper cocktail from doc if I really wanted to but it's too bad to gut microbial immunity and people say it's worthless anyway once it's chronic. It could bring me back my atopic dermatitis which I'm prone to. My plan is MMS, coloidal silver, boron and a lot of D vitamin from the Sun.

I have heard of the weather effecting their numbers, I think rain is what keeps their numbers lower?
Ehrlichiosis is the general name used to describe several bacterial diseases that affect animals and humans. Human ehrlichiosisis a disease caused by at least three different ehrlichial species in the United States: Ehrlichia chaffeensis, Ehrlichia ewingii, and a third Ehrlichia species provisionally called Ehrlichia muris-like (EML).
Ehrlichia are transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected tick. The lone star tick (Amblyomma americanum) is the primary vector of both Ehrlichia chaffeensis and Ehrlichia ewingii in the United States.
Typical symptoms include: fever, headache, fatigue, and muscle aches. Usually, these symptoms occur within 1-2 weeks following a tick bite. Ehrlichios is diagnosed based on symptoms, clinical presentation, and later confirmed with specialized laboratory tests. The first line treatment for adults and children of all ages is doxycycline. Ehrlichiosis and other tickborne diseases can be prevented.
