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 have seen views where it looks like there isn’t a single healthy red blood cell. Have a look at my youngest daughter’s blood (and mine) 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 $1,000 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.


This is my oldest daughter after a year of Klinghardt style homeopathic treatment (no, it’s not good even though she feels better):


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

  1. Hi Eric I gave parasites in liver and stomach and my eye been taking horse fenbendazole liquid around 15 ml dose a day for about 2 wks it’s doing nothing how much more could I increase to can I go much higher i’m 65 kg really grateful for any help on this thanks

  2. I’m sorry to hear of your suffering. Uveitis is a symptom of Lyme disease/infection in animals and in humans. I hope you can fully recover. I’ve yet to fully experiment with wormers, DMSO, and MMS. Not all at the same time of course. I caught my infection early so not suffering too much and don’t plan to. I’ve seen what it can do to people and animals. Good luck to you.

  3. I am at the end of a 25 year journey of intense pain and wanting to die nearly daily. I want to write my story but it is so long and confusing, every time I start, makes my head spin.

    Is there anyone out there that can help me? It’s like this is what they told me then, this is what I know now… things I know now.

    I’m 99% percent sure I have river blindness or her first cousin since my symptoms were verbatim – couldnhavw wrote the wiki page… what they told me I had – addiction to pot, anxiety, depression, thyroid issues, rheumatoid arthritis, paladromic arthritis, scleroderma, fibromyalgia, rosacea, plaque psoriasis… there is more… but basically what I told them for last 10 years and they told me not possible – was actually completely possible – everything I said is right there in the river blindness symptoms. Even the addiction to antibiotics is throughly understood by me now!

    So if anyone can help me write a synopsis of the last 25 years – I’d be eternally grateful. We I get my brain back fully, like have a life outside my bathroom and write my book – I’ll dedicate it to you. I just need it done so I can move on (the super short version).

    So Eric if you no anyone – I totally lost but super happy and no pain! Sure I’m going to have to deal with the stuff ivermectin won’t kill but just lowering my filariasis load made all the difference.

    Thanks for listening

  4. Hi Eric,

    I couldnt find a way of contacting you other than by replying to a post.

    If you could leave an email that would be great! If not here will suffice.

    I wanted to know if it is safe to do the Andrew Cutler protocol for chelating heavy metals while I am doing a parasite protocol which includes fenben and others.

    Thank you !

    1. Sorry Richard, I don’t the answer. You can find out in the Cutler Facebook group for sure..

  5. I’ve added an update video of my oldest daughter’s blood after more than a year of Lyme treatment…

  6. 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.

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

  7. 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.

      1. 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

        1. 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?

      1. 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.

    1. Supposedly, MMS kills malaria and possibly lyme. Once I learn how to make a day’s worth I’m going to try it. I was diagnosed with an active lyme infection about a month ago, took 24 days of Doxycycline felt okay but now I’m getting my symptoms back and the doctor that I chose can’t see me for a month so I need to find another way to kill this before it gets chronic. It’s a lifelong hell if you don’t kill it early. Alternatively you can buy chlorine dioxide. Obviously, you have to follow their protocols. I am no doctor, just someone who wants to be cured now.

  8. 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

    1. 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.

      1. 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?
        There is microscopy thread there and some folks with experience in that topic.

        1. Thanks Jimmi, that’s why I’m saving the Doug coil till near the end… will check out the forum.

          1. 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

  9. 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

    1. Forgot to mention, the fibers sounds like Morgellons – there’s a support group on FB for that where they rrecommend a very interesting protocol using fenbendazole which I have written about a bunch…

    2. Regarding testing, you could try lyme test from It looks for borrelia DNA and it’s very effective while being much cheaper than Igenex. You can also ask for help at this forum If it comes positive I would read those books:
      When you read those you will know much more about lyme than your doctor and you will know how to treat it with herbs
