Well, last week I got 3 tick attached bites.

One was infected, I think.

I had two bites in the same day, behind my L knee. I was out, so could not treat the bite fast.

I pulled one tick, but did not see the other. They are sooo tiny.

Only 24hr later I pulled the other (let's say, I scratched it off).

In that same evening, I felt something funny in that knee they bit.

In the morning, I had some sort of pain in the knee.

that was my worst knee during lyme, 10 years + ago.


I'm testing some new products, and to know if they work, I have to use someone as a lab rat.

So that's me.


I'm then taking:

Ledum D6

Peak Performance VFT

Apisinum (= bee venom) in a special dilution for me (it's the experiment)


It took me longer to get off bed next morning.

I felt in a sort of anxiety mode, meaning that fight and flight mode, which are signs the body is fighting something...


I took each of these energetic substances under the tongue, with intervals of about30 minutes to one hour in between them.

My dose is 2x day for each.


after the first dose of the 3rd substance, my body was so relaxed, back to its old self, that I felt confident the infection will NOT develop.

Only time will tell.

I'm not taking any herb except for a Cistus incanus tea, that I am craving.

Two cups a day.


Borrelia does not test energetically, I'm sure it's some other nasty coinfection that is causing me that symptom. S

ome coinfection that also causes joint pain.


I feel mild herxes in the L knee. Mild stinging pains that come and go, or a sudden onset of weakness in that joint.

It could be Borrelia, too...


so it took me 9 tick bites this year, many other bites from I-don't-know-what, to get some infection.

I'm rubbing Olbas on the last 3 tick bites, about 3x day.

I'm still calm, because the anxiety is really low. My body does not feel like infected anymore, but I'm pretty sure, if I stop taking the energy medicine, the nasty buggers may come!

Oh no Brussels, so sorry to hear.

This summer has been absolutely brutal for bugs of all kinds !
Ticks, bees, hornets, flies of every shape and size, fleas, and especially spiders.

And forget about having a picnic outside. You are sending out an invitation to every insect within a 50 mile radius to join your party.

There's no escaping getting bit if you venture outside.
Unless maybe you bath in replellent not advisable.

I used to use hydrogen peroxide or silver immediately after recieving a bite or scratch. Now I use iodine. Apply every hour.
It works wonders on me.

My last tick bite had me bed-bound for 34 days.. My LLMD said my protocol I was on should protect me. So I didn't use iodine. Big mistake.

Whenever I used to visit my grandfather, he would be covered in iodine over various parts of his body from scrapes or cuts. Those old-timers were smart. He lived to age 96 !

Good luck. Keep us posted. [Smile]

Wow, Brussels, thanks God for your energetical tests and that you can catch the infection early and prevent spreading...

I'm sure that you will be able to eliminate it quickly.
Ledum also tested positive for me for Rickettsia.

I love concrete for this reason.

Hi Bonnie, if I have to use iodine, I'll have to paint my whole left leg on it.

I'm STILL getting bitten again by something I don't know (I think I got about 5 bites yesterday), + the last 3 tick bites these last days...

Those unknown bites worry me more than tick bites, as I can do something about these (as I see them, pull them off, point).

the funny thing is that only the left leg is bitten by the nasty invisible buggers (that I have no idea of species...). I see nothing, really.

But the fact that they stay biting me on one leg suggests me it's some microscopic bug, that moves slow (not like fleas or even ticks, that can move amazingly a lot).

Like bed mites.

I still haven't got sure these are not red mites in early stages....

Bugrepel seems to work (as I stopped getting bitten with Bugrepel). But as I stopped spraying it, I get bitten again...


Iodine is the only thing I rub on scrapes and cuts, for sure! But for tick bites, I have been using those strong essential oils for years.

I'll test iodine too, who knows it helps killing the infection too?


-------------
Anuta... yes, I AM herxing, for sure.

Small herxes, but sure herxes (as I'm needing chlorella + bear garlic). As soon as I take these, the anxiety drops.

It's something, but I have again, no idea which infection. Funnily, it affects the knee joint.

The cocktail Ledum + Peak Performance + Bee venom energetic imprint is dealing with the infection, I feel.

The stinging knee pains are practically gone (I mean, they came mostly from small herxes, I suppose, as it was too early to get my knee fully infected....).

I feel my ANS is under control too.
In the absence of herxes, I feel very relaxed, no fight & flight mode, which means, my body is taking a break from 'alarm mode'.

------------------------
Lyme tutu - I have no concrete around home. It's all 'country' here, grass, tall grass, plants, gravel.

I'm sure that soon we'll be seeing papers on Borrelia and other infections being transmitted by bed bugs such as mites.

There are indeed already old papers (20 year old +) showing many species of mites having Borrelia.

So what will we do? Sleep on concrete mattress? [Roll Eyes]

Sorry for all your bites, Brussels, but relieved that you acted quickly and have lots of strings to your bow to treat them. Good luck 👍

Carry, thanks for your concern.

I don't know what I have now, but I'm attracting all buggers...

I got a flea in the afternoon, while gardening.

2 bites on right leg.

I'm freezing the clothes again....

I'm wondering, if I have is not something called punaises de lits in French??

https://youtu.be/IMBTr6dqvqA

I google translated, it came as bed bugs...


Either that or chigger bites.

http://ladyleeshome.com/chigger-bites/

This mysterious bug is making me craaazy.

I HOPE it's just chiggers. Now it's August, it's the perfect time for them... The bites seem similar to photos I've seen...

The infected tick bite is the smallest problem at this the moment.

It seems under control.

I worked out for half of the day, not tired, energy is good, herxing a bit, but so far so good.

I'm more freaking from some insect infestation of my bed or clothes.....

Brussels, long time ago, I lived once trough bed bugs infestation in the university dorm in Moscow. The bites were all around face and neck lymph nodes.

I've never actually seen the bugs- I think they lived I see the matrasses and only came out when it was dark.

Exterminators applied some red paste on the wooden bed frames (not sure what it was but it didn't smell at all), twice - we never had any more bugs ever since.

Thank you Anuta.

Do you know what was the red paste made from?

I never got bitten on the face, only on one leg, the left one.

I do start thinking it's something small, otherwise, why wouldn't they move and bite other parts of my body?

I was reading about chiggers, which are microscopic (or very tiny) bugs that are active here in Switzerland during hotter months.


I got some chigger bites in the past, but usually, they concentrated on the waist (they hide on folds of clothes).

I'm wearing tight trousers these days, I wonder if that is the reason they bite my legs too... first time they bite me there (if it's chiggers...).

And the description matches: the chigger bite will only appear hours after they actually bite, not immediately.

When I go out in the garden, I barely notice anything.

When I wake up in the morning, I have those strange bites, that is why I thought it happened during the night...

If it's chiggers, I'll be much at ease.

I've been reading about bed bugs, and mostly, people use chemicals.

Brussels, I'm not sure what was the red paste- it was very long time ago, but it was definitely some kind of a chemical.

I think if it would be bed bugs - it would be more then one leg .
I remember my whole neck , especially behind the years on both sides were covered with bites.

Gee!

Thank you for the info, Anuta.

I got zero bites last night. I waited till 2 am, to see if I got any extra chigger bite from gardening yesterday. I waited 6 hours.

I counted all bites, and went to bed at 2.15am.

This morning, no extra bite.

I feel soo much better. I'm wearing loose trousers today. Let's see how it goes.

If it's chiggers, I sincerely don't care. AS long as it's not red mites or bed bugs, I think I can relax.

I'm still 'herxing' somehow, no more pain in the knee. Just heavy feeling in the liver, that disappears with VFT liver product + chlorella + bear garlic.

the darn tick number 9 was indeed infected, I think.

The only symptom is that I feel more tired than usual, in the morning. Nothing massive, but these are probably herxes. I guess, sleeping at 2am was not a good idea [Frown]
