Hi Betty, I have been trying to figure out what
the 28day cycle is. I noticed it on one of your
recent posts and was wondering if you could explain it. Or anyone else.

Thanks, Marsy

Marsy, I have to ask for help to answer your question.

This is something I've been told from day 1, but I went to TREEPATROL'S NEWBIE LINKS to try to find the answer for YOU/ME!

But I couldn't find anything about the 28 days. I found info galore and photos but nothing about 28 day cycle.

HELP to you oldies; and i'm not getting personal! LOL [Big Grin]

Marsy, you raised a good question! When we get the answers, I'll show the link in my newbies for others.

I was trying to explain the spirochete to my sister-in-law today. Here was my example: it's like a woman's period/menstruation when the body experiences its life cycle!

See October 12th post "what happens every 4th

week." It might help answer some questions.

Treepatrol -- I would like to know where you are in your treatment, and how it has gone, and what you see in the near future. I trust your knowledge, and would like to hear your experience with treating this disease.

As far as the cycle of this bug . . . even if there is a 12 to 24 hour cycle, or a 12 day, or 28 day . . . they wouldn't all cycle at the same time. One is born on Monday, one is born on tuesday, etc. . . . and then they go through their own individual life cycles, but not all at the same time. That just doesn't make any sense.

Maybe, rather than tied to the life cycle of the bugs, our herx's are tied to our own body rhythm. Or maybe there's a peak at 28 days. But in my experience, the herx goes on and on -- I am achey and in pain most of the time. it did get worse during this last full moon! So that's yet another cycle, the lunar cycle, which might affect how the bugs behave in the body.

They come out to see the moon and then zap. LOL

Jeff, I was thinking the same thing about the life cycles of these spirochetes replicating every
12-48 hrs. and living 2wks to 7months, I could not figure out the how or why of the 28 day cycle.

Claire, it was humanbeings post that had me searching for the answers, as it just seemed to
bring up more questions in my mind.

Tree, alot of people seem to have the 28 day thing which there seems to be no explanation for
[confused]

Betty, thank you for taking the time to look for
for this, I think I just found the link a few minutes ago, too late for me to read through it now. Dr. Burrascanos Empirical Theory of Flare
Symptoms.

Coincidently this is day 27 of treatment for me,
Wonder if Im due for a herx tomorrow?
