Prevention
Emergency treatment when bitten:
     
     
    New bite only to completely eradicate an immature infection:
    Colloidal Silver: 1/2 cup on morning empty stomach for six days.
    MMS1: Eight 3 drop drinks for 11 days.
    CHIM -FLUOX- 4 days worth or more.
    Allicin - 1300 mg - for eight days
    Thymus mastichina from Spain (Marjoram):  On a cracker drop 2 diluted drops eat once daily for 20 days consecutive days. [In 1/4 cup olive oil add 18drops of the pure Marjoram.] or one drop pure. Only works if person doesn't smoke, drink, drugs, etc.
    The longer it has been in you the longer the eradicating agents are taken.

    Note a rash may develop up to 11 days or more after a tick infected 

    Picnicking, camping, hiking or at home.. take your favorite home remedy with you: Colloidal Silver, or tiny bottle of Thymus mastichina from Spain, or a packet of Allicin (aged garlic). Best to keep on hand as when a bite occurs there is no time to waste.

How do I prevent Lyme disease?
The simple answer is to avoid being bitten by a tick, or by other transmissions.  Since Canadians, in all provinces have been bitten and infected, some in their own yards and local walking paths here are some suggestions that may be helpful.

Some things to know to reduce your risk. 

Know where ticks are normally found:
    Ticks are most plentiful in areas where woodlands transition into fields, meadows, or yards. Ticks are often found in tall grass, gardens, or mulch beds. Deer paths through the woods are often loaded with ticks. Leaf litter, wood piles, and rock walls are also areas of high tick concentration. Dormant oil apparently can be used in these areas prior to ticks hatching in the spring and will reduce the tick population in the yards by 70 to 100 percent. 
When you are in such areas, you need to be particularly vigilant to prevent a tick from attaching to your body.
  • When tick is feeding in your skin:  Apply Lyclear (a permethrin based cream) to the attached tick and it will fall off after a few hours.

  • Commercially Available Dormant Oil Sprays Include:  Acme 25 150 Dormant Oil, Scotts PT Volck Oil Spray, PBI Gordon Dormant Oil Spray,  Saf-T-Side Horticultural Oil 
  • Do not squeeze a tick as it will regurgitate and spill contents in your blood stream!!
  • Tick Repellents:  

  •  
    • Distilled white vinegar is a taste and smell that apparently repels ticks. In a spray bottle, mix 1 cup of water with 2 cups of distilled white vinegar and some Almond oil. Before going for a walk spray the dogs dry fur being careful to avoid eyes, nose, mouth, and genitals and then your legs and clothes. Remember to check the skin and hair when returning home to make sure no ticks are on the body.
    • Frontline and Advantix for pets. 
    • Spraying clothes with Permethrin before wearing them. (This is  used by horse people on their animals and you can find it in those stores. Putting one ounce of 10% permethrin solution into a 32-ounce misting container, fill with water and spray clothes) Premethrin's should NOT be used on cats.
    • Research: " sulphur remedy for ticks"  YAHOO or GOOGLE  and  Acme 25 150 Dormant Oil,  Scotts PT Volck Oil Spray,   PBI Gordon Dormant Oil Spray,    Saf-T-Side Horticultural Oil
    • Using DEET insect repellent for other biting insects. (On children, for safety, avoid products that contain more than 30% DEET.) 
  • Of course, avoid all blood sucking insect bites. Mosquitoes, horseflies, deer flies, fleas, and lice have also been shown to carry the Lyme bacteria, as well as other tick-borne diseases. [ Two families in two different countries were infected with the usual zoonotic infections and also Morgellons.]
  • Wearing light-colored clothing makes it easier to spot crawling ticks. 
  • Wearing clothes cover rather than exposing skin is helpful. 
  • Wrapping an elastic band over pants tightly to boots make it more difficult for ticks to get to your skin. 
  • Wrapping your bottom pant leg with that grey fix-it tape or taping it to your boots removes traction for the ticks. 
  • Avoiding walking in tall grasses and sitting on logs or stumps. 
  • As soon as you get back from spending time outdoors, check for ticks.
  • Showering is also helpful and giving yourself the all round naked check, including hair areas and folds, remembering that some of the ticks are extremely small and are almost impossible to see.
  • Putting your clothing in a clothes dryer at high heat, for about an hour, will kill ticks. ticks

  •  
Remember
  • Hungry nymphs are the size of pinhead.
  • A tick bite is not painful. Your body must be checked.
  • NEVER squeeze a tick to pull it out as it will definitely regurgitate and spill its contents and bacteria's in your blood stream. See Video below or visit Dr. Murakami web site.

Tick Removal: Blister & Straw and Knot Methods Dr Murakami
Method of removing wood ticks, developed by Dr. Murakami of Canada. This doctor has treated Lyme disease in Canada for many years.
.
Method of removing wood ticks, developed by Dr. Murakami, involves a subdermal injection at the bite site of a solution of Xylocaine and adrenalin. Successful in forcing the tick to retract its mouthparts and pull head out of skin, without emptying stomach contents into host (which would result in transmission of borellia bergdorferi spirochaete responsible for Lyme Disease)
* Please Note: This procedure should only be done by a physician.
Straw and knot method is another method used by Dr. Murakami. The success of this method lies in the subtle but constant upward pressure on the string once the tick is "caught" with the knot.
