Lyme Disease or Dementia ?

I found this article interesting and maybe of help to people who visit this site after reading about the singer /actor Kris Kristofferson a while ago not being able to remember his words to songs while performing on stage and also a friend who died young from a tick bite while working as a game keeper and all the people who walk pets or may come into contact with Ticks while in the great outdoors

We know it’s spread mainly by ticks; that these ticks are rife — from the U.S. to Australia to many parts of Britain and Europe; that if you don’t catch the disease early with strong antibiotics it can lead to all manner of complications; that because it’s hard to test for, it’s often not diagnosed, so many more people are suffering from it than the official figures acknowledge.

There’s the brain fog — this classic symptom feels as if your brain has gone on strike, sometimes causing you to forget words or even the names of people you know well. It can appear quite out of the blue

‘It steals your life, it steals your brain. It’s horrible and the number of people suffering is endless. Yet they’ve been hung out to dry, dispensed with like they are hypochondriacs,

Ninety per cent of those we see from the UK have been misdiagnosed with burnout or depression. They get passed from one specialist to another, and their condition just gets worse.’

This pretty much sums up the NHS in the Uk the doctors are run off their feet and if you are lucky you get maybe 15 minutes with a doctor and are only allowed to bring up 1 thing as they do not have the time for more .

I have had this [ Dementia ] ? for 2-3 years i do not remember exactly but have gone from being able to remember what book and which page i could remember reading something in to not being able to draw what time they asked on a clock face in front of a very stunning lady doctor , boy did i feel a twat , the other test i got was a piece of A4 paper on the ground and 20 seconds later they ask where they put the paper i got that one right thankfully but i have been hinting at my doctors that i want the jaggy paw if this gets much worse .

Anyway off to bed early as i have the hospital tomorrow
early the doctor wants to check me as i had 6 heart attacks in a 365 day period exactly , but there is nothing wrong with me honestly

The Hernia i hardly notice and neither did they till recently , my memory is perfect i am told the Copd and the spirometry test i had 4 years ago gave me the lungs of a 86 year old and i have something genetic called A1AD antitrypsin deficiency all this and i do not qualify for benfits or a bus pass and i am collapsing frequently and i am not allowed to drive

Maybe the doctor has noticed that in the tests lately on my heart the lady doing the test kept ripping the paper out of the machine and telling me to relax which i was any more relaxed and i would be snoring was my answer to her as she run the test for the 12 ? time as she moaned about her eyes being sore with the oscillations on the charts , but the letter said i was fine

So if i do not log in for a awful long while if you read about hostages being taken at a hospital that will be me and the Doc but i will make sure he is ok i will get the cops to bring sandwiches for him and all will be good by 1 pm for him , we just do hospital drama better here .

Plus while visiting the hospital on Heart attack number aaaaammm yip i got to play with a stethoscope that was left in the room i was shocked at the price the NHS pays for them as the one i bought on e- bay for a couple of quid was every bit as good as their £150 one and i have good hearing ,

I asked my Psychiatrist about this case a couple of years ago almost how if this man was walking and talking how could he be right about his science , he stuttered and stammered and i had to tell him the awfull truth that DE Nial is a river in Egypt HE WILL NOT ANSWER MY CALLS SINCE
Any way kids play nice and no throwing stuff at each other

Lymes disease is named after the island it was first identified on were a German Scientist whom had been a/and worked for the NAZI regime in German had been given a post by the Americans to work in biological weapon's for there military after being brought to the states under operation paperclip.
Though finding's of the bacterium responsible for Lymes disease in an ancient Egyptian mummy many thousands of years old show that he did NOT create the disease it is far more than likely that he did breed the modern insidious form of it and released it onto the island as a field test or perhaps it was simply an accident and some of the infected tic's escaped, either way bird's carry tic's and bob's your uncle so today we have a weaponized (by the US biological research wing of the US army or rather a NAZI scientist whom was working for them) strain of the disease running rampant around the world, as a weapon it is an obvious failure but as a disease it is now a pandemic that has spread around the world, tic's are hard to kill but there has to be a way to wipe them out that is the lesser of the two evil's.

Are you saying you may have been misdiagnosed?

Lyme disease can be cured, whereas there is no cure for dementia

get it fixed up quick IF you believe this is the case

one of the lipids that is high in coconut oil, lauric acid, when exposed to the lypase in our body forms monolaurin which if used for a while can kill lyme disease. Monolaurin is a monoglyceride of lauric acid. On top of that, if you put coconut oil on your skin, it acts like an insect repellent working as good if not better than deet. It doesn't have to smell like coconut, the refined coconut oil is fine. Maybe it does repel bugs, but it may attract bears.
Don't worry, they will just lick the coconut off you after you have a heart attack from running.

I believe it’s name comes from where it started, Lyme Connecticut..not an Natzi for miles around those parts. a reply to: LABTECH767

Erik Traub whom was working for the US government, a NAZI scientist taken to the US through operation paperclip is believed to have released Tick's infected with a STRAIN of Lymes disease in exactly that area and the modern epidemic of Lymes stem's from this incident.
This is NOT the same strain but is a probable ancestor of the Modern Lyme's which was probably engineered by Erik Traub as part of a US government biological weapon's program but an older strain of Lyme's has been found in among other places the Ice Man mummy from the alp's in Europe.

Further I do appologize it was NOT found in an egyptian mummy but the ice man mummy a freeze dried ancient body.

Certainly such pathogen's would have been of interest to biological weapon's researchers such as Traub and certainly if they saw potential they would have tried to breed or create a far more dangerous and potent strain resistant to treatment's to be used as a weapon, certainly we also have to ask was his release of the disease a deliberate act of malice or a field test gone very wrong.

I also suspect people 'diagnosed' with Fybromyalgia actually have Lyme Disease......
Just my 1p worth

Lyme disease is not necessarily curable. We just had a patient who is suspected to have lyme disease which can't be seen because the bacteria can hide, and she has severe cognitive problems, and the doctors can't figure out anything to do to help her.

I found a tick inside my navel in August 2013. My regular Dr was not in at the time. Unfortunately the Dr I saw, only prescribed one week of doxycycline. I learned later I should have been on it for at least 3 weeks.

I at least know I was infected by a tick. Unfortunately, at least 50 percent of the people with Lyme disease don't remember being bitten by a tick.

In all I have read, I believe Eric Traub took the bacteria that existed and altered it somehow to make it spread more rapidly.

I tell everyone to please research this. Avoid being bitten by a tick at all costs. Your life will be ruined.

Also, the standard blood test most Dr's use is only 30 percent accurate.

Yes , this disease not only affects the body, but also the mind.

Everyone, please read all you can about Lyme disease. Do everything you can to avoid contact with ticks.

If this disease keeps spreading, it will cause untold havoc.

Another thing I have found out, possums are great to have around your yard. As they walk around searching for food, ticks attach to them. As they groom themselves, they pick off the ticks, and eat them.

This is a disease that doesn't kill right away. It's a slow miserable death.

My memory is getting worse all the time. I am only 63, so it's not old age.

You have to do your own research. Most Dr's haven't got a clue when it comes to Lyme disease.

Hopefully you will find answers, and some healing

God bless

63 is old enough for other cognitive diseases to be the cause, make sure you have those ruled out.

You know a lot of them probable have, it is a very difficult disease to diagnose and routine check's seldom flag it up until it is too late and the damage is done.

I may have been misdiagnosed ! it shocked me when years ago i had to get checked for A1AD antitrypsin deficiency thinking i was good as my blood had be taken dozens of times over the years and this is a common fault in the population 1-4 people carry it , so you think they would check this -wrong they did not pick this up until i asked for a test , It actually took me over a year to get a doctor to give me a test for this even when presented with a letter from a family members doctor stating this and it took me over 3 years to get benefits when asking for a sick note or medication for pain , i actually had to joke i was going to decapitate a doc to get a note , and i waltzed through the hospital on Friday like a rock star .

Yip I noticed behave nice and you get nothing , scare the crap out of them and you get treated like a rock star after some snowflake doc takes what you said about, have you ever Googled holistic doctor deaths and i might have said i am dyslexic and might not know how to spell Paracelsus but at least i read the book
and phones the cops after a visit .
