Lyme Disease under the microscope

Seems to me that one of the best ways to diagnose and monitor Lyme disease is with the microscope. Not only can you see very quickly whether your blood is healthy or diseased, you can go back to the microscope regularly to monitor your progress. getting a look at the critters in our blood has helped us understand why my family is ill. We occasionally see views where it looks like there isn’t a single healthy red blood cell. Maybe every single red blood cell is actually diseased. That would explain a lot. Have a look for yourself.

Just remember, I’m still learning about dark-field microscopy and live blood analysis. There are online courses but they run more than $1000 so for now, I’m learning the hard way. If you can help identify anything here, please comment! As I get feedback I’m going to improve this page and the video which I consider just a draft right now.

VOCABULARY:

bacillus –  a rod-shaped bacterium. Bacilli are found in many different taxonomic groups of bacteria. However, the name Bacillus, capitalized and italicized, refers to a specific genus of bacteria. The name Bacilli, capitalized but not italicized, can also refer to a less specific taxonomic group of bacteria that includes two orders, one of which contains the genus Bacillus. When the word is formatted with lowercase and not italicized, ‘bacillus’, it will most likely be referring to shape and not to the genus at all. Bacilliform bacteria are also often simply called rods when the bacteriologic context is clear.

cocoid – a coccus is any bacterium that has a spherical, ovoid, or generally round shape. It is one of the three distinct bacterial shapes, the other two being bacillus and spiral-shaped cells. Wikipedia

rbc – red blood cell

spirochete – a spirochaete or spirochete is a member of the phylum Spirochaetes, which contains distinctive diderm bacteria, most of which have long, helically coiled cells, some of which are serious pathogens for humans, causing diseases such as syphilis, yaws, Lyme disease, and relapsing fever. Wikipedia

vacuole – a space or vesicle within the cytoplasm of a cell, enclosed by a membrane and typically containing fluid

    Awesome video! Probably going to buy a microscope myself and learn dark field microscopy.

    I currently take antibiotics but now looking into rife. Apparently, 2 original rife machines are in Canada so I need to learn the specs on that before delving into that arena. But I wanted to put the bacteria under the microscope and see at what frequencies it kills the bugs like Rife did. Too bad they are so expensive.

      Yes, I’m also feeling limited by my finances! Have been contemplating investing in a Doug coil machine for quite some time.

    Wow first website in comments to give microscopes full definition of what microscope to buy! Bravo! Can this microscope also see malaria? I’m interested in lymes and malaria.

        Eric, I have stumbled upon your site here. I am in the same position as you I have some disturbing pictures to share and possible protocols to share also. I spent gobs of cash with the doctor drills, at the Tahoma Clinic with Jonathan Wright. I walked away from there so called expertise. Has all the tests and there answer was a definitive negative on parasites. I was not happy with the answer. I moved fwd. with turpentine and castor oil. What the Hell, worms, bio-film. I have been down the same road as you, earlier than you my symptoms go back to probably 5 or 6 yrs old. Yes I have been miserable most of my life, even though doing colonics, the Bernard Jensen Bowel Cleanse, you name it I have probably done it. If you care to share your email I’ll send you photos and possibly a future chat to share some ideas. Look fwd to hearing from you. Thanks Alan

          Alan, it’s all I can do to keep up with comments here – email is beyond my limits. Did the turpentine help you? Have you tried chlorine dioxide?

      Wanted to share this discovery regarding the “worm-type” or Lyme -type shapes. They aren’t Lyme at all. I saw these in my child’s and in my LCA. Here’s the fascinating article! https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-10479-8#Fig2 They found all healthy people have these in their blood. It scared me at first! Thought it was Lyme.

        That’s a very interesting article Stephanie. I believe the authors far overstepped their authority based on the results when they conclude that lifeblood analysis is not useful. It’s astonishing that they did not compare the blood of diseased individuals with healthy individuals perform drawing their conclusion. I have seen spirochetes emerging from red blood cells and I have seen the spirochetes disappear and cysts appear. I’m not sure if I have seen the actual process of the spirochete bawling up into a cyst… can’t recall. I can tell you that none of the images they show reveal the cysts I see in our infected blood. I do wish I had their laboratory at my disposal! I also know that my video is flawed and I should probably take it down because I have erroneously classified some things.

    I have had a darkfield scope for a few years but haven’t found it terribly helpful as I don’t think Lyme is my issue. Some resources where I learned a great deal:
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/MyMicroscope/
    http://www.ppdictionary.com/index.html
    http://counsellingme.com/microscopy/introduction.html

    That last one is the most comprehensive description of how to observe lyme & co that I have found. Hope it may be helpful to you.

    Hello Eric I’ve visited many times your blog and wouldn’t say enough for your great work.I’m exactly your case.Please what treatments are you using to combat Lyme?are you going to post any update about your lyme treatments?Thanks&kind regards

      Thanks Anila! I read this book which I recommend highly: New Paradigms in Lyme Disease Treatment: 10 Top Doctors Reveal Healing Strategies That Work and I did a lot of research on the Doug coil. Initially my plan was to use the Doug coil by itself – but then we started my daughter with the homeopath and liked her so much I decided to go through homeopathy first and only use the Doug coil near the end. Now I’m glad I didn’t go straight to the Doug coil because I don’t think my detox systems could handle the die-off.

        The die-off during rife treatment like Doug coil could be huge, I use Imedis device for lyme and other bacteria and I remember the beginning of treatment as something the worst I ever experienced in my life. There were days when I just wanted to die… Anyway very interesting video of your blood, do you know this forum? http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=30
        There is microscopy thread there and some folks with experience in that topic.

            I wouldn’t wait much longer, you can always start with very short time and see how it would work. From my experience following detox is helping a lot: after treatment go to sauna (you have about 4-6 hours before herxheimer reaction develops), then you can drink Alka Seltzer Gold with lemon juice. Foot baths with epsom salt also helps. As I remember this is explained here http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=30&m=1606610

    What kind of microscope do you have? I have a 15yr old son who’s missed so much school since the first grade. I know something is wrong he’s been to several dr’s. I suspect lyme, am going to have him tested myself at igenex. He’s very pale, low body temp, frequent nausea like more nauseas days than not. Lots of fatigue, gets tired easy and if he stays up too late for too many days he gets really sick, nausea and vomiting. Gets little red bumps in pairs or in threes. He’s been sick more than he hasn’t in his life. The doctors tell me to keep a journal, then when I keep a journal, they think I’m motherly obsessed. dr had him tested for lyme and was negative but it was a regular lab. I’m saving and am half way there, as soon as I have $3000.00 (igenex doesn’t accept his ins) going to send samples to igenex, but then, if he has these coinfections that I think he does, who will treat him? I can’t find a lyme dr locally. By the way, he also has those fibers show up on his skin after bathing and I’ve read this could be a symptom of lyme also. Does anyone have any suggestions or comments? I would appreciate it. I feel alone in this and worry I’m a single mom with similar issues myself. When I find something that works for me, I’ll try it out on him. Right now doing peroxide therapy getting ready to do chelation- am nervous, I hate feeling nauseas. I played with mercury also as a kid, my dad was an appliance repair man and he saved the mercury out of thermostats in this ceramic jug and us kids would pour it into our hands we thought it was the coolest thing. But ya, Eric, reading your story all you went through when a teen when you should’ve been having more fun rather than battling fatigue and sickness-does remind me of my own son

About


My name is Eric - I‘m 49 and saw a doctor for fatigue at 17. I lived fairly normally if a little subdued by lack of endurance at times. But then, in 2002 I fell into a nosedive after moving to South Florida. Now, I know heavy metal toxicity is a significant source of my troubles along with genetic methylation cycle dysfunction and Lyme disease. I spent 18 months chelating the metals out and starting up methylation but stopped when I felt myself circling the drain. Currently going after Lyme and co-infections. More about me here.
