May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month. I you are going to the Country, or visit friends in the Country on weekends, be prepared. Buy your own tick spray before you head out. Botanical tick sprays including TICKTOCKnaturals ( my favorite), or various Nantucket Spider products at Fairway, health stores or online, are my two top and effective choices. Essential oils incl. been, tea tree oil, cedar wood, rose geranium, lemongrass oil are helpful. ( dons must be diluted in a carrier oil before application.) be prepared for fun weekends against ticks bites, spider bites, flea bites, and mosquito bites.

By 3am my legs began to regain a little movement. My 5am my neck would hold my head for short periods. By 7am, I could move everything, slowly, weakly, but enough. By 9am I shuffled to the toilet, with just a little help from a nurse. By 10am the infectious diseases doctor arrived, told me the at the episode was nothing to do with Lyme disease, and would go away in its own time. I was angry now. She told me that I didn't have chronic lyme (the NHS still fail at understanding this), and that they wouldn't refer me to a Neurologist. She told me that it was likely caused by stress. (Note: I was possibly in a period of the least stress in my life, ever). Finally, she told me that maybe she could go see me again in six weeks. And that I was "definitely over-thinking the walking thing". Over-thinking walking. Overthinking not being able to walk, stand, hold my head up, bend a knee, flex an ankle, move even a toe. And so, that is how the British NHS react to Lyme Disease. They have no clue. The Lyme bacteria are hiding in my nervous system, they are in my brain, my stomach, heart and oddly in a nerve in my eye, meaning I have had a twitching right eye for weeks. But I'm okay. I can walk well some of the time, badly most of the time, terribly when my legs get tired. I can type, though thinking is much harder. I can't really read well, concentrate, or remember things. But despite feeling drunk a lot of the time (not an unpleasant feeling tbh), if I wink at you, I'm not flirting (especially with you Mr Doctor) that's the lyme playing winky tricks. lyme lymedisease lymeencephalitis lymediseaseawareness lymewarrior lymediseaseawarenessmonth lymelife lymesucks lymefighter chroniclyme chronicpain chronicillness

Taylor is living with Lyme Disease and has so much advice to give. She think it is so important to have goals and dreams to motivate you, but it looks a little different with Lyme. She says:⠀ .⠀ "I think another thing that’s important is to have some future goals & dreams that help give you that motivation to do whatever it takes to get better & to never give up! What you don’t want to do though, is put a timeline with these goals & dreams, because the truth of the matter is, with Lyme, we just don’t know how long it will take to get better & you don’t want to get disappointed if it takes longer than you had planned. So instead of setting a timeline for pursuing your dreams, just think of it like “when I get healthy I’m going to do this “fill in the blank”.” LymeNow LymeLetters⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ lyme lymedisease lymejourney lymedontkillmyvibe lymediseaseawareness lymewarrior lymelife invisibleillness chronicfatigue lymesucks spoonie chronic chronicillness chroniclife chronicfatigue chroniclyme

I am trying to be positive through this fight, but then there are days like today that make it super hard. Just when I have a day that I seem to be feeling a little better, I am hit with a day like today when I feel worse than I ever have. Lyme Disease is no joke! It can make the simplest everyday tasks feel almost impossible sometimes. I live in one of the worst areas in Nova Scotia for black legged ticks. Nothing is being done through our medical systems here in Canada or the US to improve testing for Lyme Disease and the hundreds of coinfections that these ticks are carrying. Our tests here in Nova Scotia have a 60-70% miss rate! 😡 Since I had to send my bloodwork outside of the country for better testing, I do not qualify for antibiotics here in Canada even though I have tested positive for Lyme, Bartonella, and Babesia. It is very frustrating. Even the larger dog ticks, (wood ticks), are found to be carrying many more coinfections now so do not over look them! If anyone feels that Lyme Disease is what they may be suffering from but you have tested negative through the medical systems, please feel free to PM me with any questions. Don’t give up when the medical system fails you! lymewarrior lymedisease lymediseaseawareness stayingpositive tickseason ticks deertick dogtick woodtick rocks buddha hosta checkyourself fighting babesia bartonella iwillfightthis nojoke lyme lymefighter coinfections

I love that mental health awareness is the same month as Lyme disease awareness. I feel like these 2 go hand in hand for so many people because of the struggle of finding answers for years During my search (which no dr listened to me about) I’ve seen some really deep dark times and I felt anxiety to the max. I still do some days I am not cured. It’s a thought you have to work through for sure! My close family and friends have seen me completely and utterly done and have had major break downs behind closed doors That’s why I feel so strongly about awareness now. I went to work with a smile on my face on the outside, and dying on the inside This journey is teaching me SO much about LIFE, LOVE, and HAPPINESS. Keep digging for your happiness. Ask for help, vent it out, whatever it will be to help your soul. I am one direct message away if you need some encouraging words DONT GIVE UP. wegotthis 💪🏼

May is Lyme Disease Awareness month. Be aware that most people with chronic Lyme 1) Never saw a tick. 2) Never had a bullseye rash. 3) Do not show positive by the regular labs according to the strict CDC guidelines which don’t measure every species And the infection avoids immune detection by hiding in Cells, Tissues, and Biofilm.

Recently, I have been documenting my journey back to cardio here on social media. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And I want to clarify something. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I do love cardio, and believe it is good for the body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But here me when I say this… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ CARDIO IS NOT HEALTHY FOR PEOPLE CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING EXERCISE INDUCED SYMPTOM FLARE UPS (OR FLARE UPS IN GENERAL). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One more time for people in the back- ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are currently living with autoimmune disease, fibromyalgia, lyme disease and other types of chronic illness, and you are someone who is experiencing any of the following symptoms, such as exhaustion, fatigue, anxiety, depression, flu like symptoms, or any other kind of flare-up… CARDIO IS NOT YOUR FRIEND RIGHT NOW. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Why? Well, in summary… cardio exercise can exacerbate these symptoms and make them worse. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Want to know more? Then I have good news! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is the topic for tomorrow’s Facebook live- so come join me tomorrow, Monday May 20th at 12 noon EST- and let’s talk about cardio

Once in the majors cubicles I told the doctor that I needed to wee. He went to get something as I attempted to wander, but ricocheting off the walls, my knees began to go, and I ended up crawling on hands and knees towards the toilet directly opposite. A nurse saw, gathered me up, told me off for trying to get there, and helped me pull up my trousers again before dragging me back over to the bed. Over the next seven hours, I had failed commode experiences and failed bed pan joys too but dignity was the least of my concerns. Because from walking in almost fine, I had deteriorated incredibly rapidly. I couldn't move my legs, stand, speak with anywhere near normal speed or clarity, I couldn't remember the name of the Queen, whether my aunty and uncle were alive or count backwards from 20. Most concerning was that they had no idea what was wrong. Fortunately, I did, because my sister, also having Lyme, had similar symptoms years before. The first doctor, a man I could only remember when asked to have 'grey something' (his hair and beard), who oddly seemed to be flirting with me, helpfully informed me that "nothing exists that mean people deteriorate this quickly" Well, I wasn't making it up mate! He had a weird smirk when he reveled that he would have to do an anal examination. Something to do with checking my spine was okay with sphincter reflexes. Unable to pull down my own trousers or knickers, now my dignity was well and truly dead. lyme lymedisease chronicpain chroniclyme chroniclymedisease lymelife lymewarrior lymeawareness lymesucks lymesurvivor

Expelled cholesterol bits from my parasite detox after I flushed my gallbladder and liver out. (See previous post video on my parasites collected over these last 3 years) often you start slow cleansing then build up to multiple things you can do or take daily to routinely keep bad parasites count down. It should become a part of your daily life. I routinely parasite cleanse every 2 months( because I have pets another cause of parasites) with NOW Wormwood tincture, activated charcoal, garlic, cistus tea, chagra tea, onions, Japanese Knotweed powder, Maca powder, turmeric shots, Epsom salt baths with food grade hydrogen peroxide( parasites release the toxic gases they hold for you inside them when they die so skin detoxing can speed things along & bacteria hate oxygen) massages, reflexology, organic coffee enemas, intermittent fasting to starve parasites, centrifuge quality vitamin C, pineapple juice repels parasites, reflexology machine. Youtube search Dr Dietrich Klinghardts videos on parasites. BetterHealthguy blog has parasite photo forums to inform what is coming out of you. I watch my sons poop even. Many ADHD and autism is thought to be parasitic infections mixed w WiFi effects.

Mother of Herbs (Coleus ambioinicus), Indian borage or 'Five Spice Herb'. This herb has many uses hence sometimes being called the Queen of herbs too. Best grown in plant pots as it does sprawl quite quickly. It can be used to soothe a sore throat as chewing on one of its fleshy leaves are antiseptic and antibacterial. You can smell its strong aroma as soon as you crush the leaves. It is also an expectorant therefore beneficial for healing coughs, asthma and bronchitis. A tea can be made from the leaves for stomach aches and indigestion too. Leaves can be rubbed on the temples or forehead to ease headaches. Isabell Shipard talks about using it to help with insomnia by placing a chopped leaf in a cup of boiling water then sipping it before bed. Can also be used as an antiseptic on insect bites and as a repellant too. A yummy addition to cooking food to flavour meats and vegetables. It is rich in vitamin A, C and B's as well as iron, magnesium, potassium and calcium. Apparently Queen Victoria liked it with her roast dinners! 🌱🍃 🍃 🍃 motherofherbs herbs herbal medicinalherbs natural lyme herbalmedicine naturopathamina hillierretreat lymedisease cfs noosaholistichealth noosa cough naturopathy sorethroat asthma herbaltea medicinalplants healing headaches mouldillness fungalinfection queenofherbs indianborage herbalist cirs lymediseaseawareness ebv viruses

The distribution of infected ticks is subject to temporal, climatic and geographical changes. We must consider the habitats of different wild animals and the changed migratory direction of the birds, as these are host animals for Borrelia and often carry and spread many ticks. ⠀ ⠀ Learn more from the BCA Clinic in Germany: https:buff.ly/2SEO9LV⠀ ⠀ lyme ticks migration climatechange borrelia bcaclinic lymeadvise lymedisease chronicillness invisibleillness health wellness spoonie spirochete lymewarrior lymedontkillmyvibe healing lymediseaseawarenessmonth

I just wanted to share Gunner’s symptoms since tick season is about to be horrid and so many horses at my barn are being diagnosed. The 2nd picture is from April 15th ——> the first picture was from last night. As you can see he had lost a ton of weight/muscle and had random bald patches. He was a lot of grain too at the time. Gunner has always been a bit of a grouch from the day I bought him, he just has a really tough exterior (most likely due to to his past abuse). He’s also an internal horse, so if he feels stressed out he doesn’t ever buck/spook under saddle instead he gets super tense and STRESSESwhich is also a major reason for his reoccurring ulcers. Back in December is when I started to notice a major change in his behavior. He would get a major sore back even from the lightest rides, I couldn’t even touch his back without him pinning his ears and flinching, so he would have a few days in a row off with some robaxin and we’d start again. I thought it was my saddle so I had the saddle fitter out and got it adjustedthings got better but his back soreness was more intermittent. He would also have an intermittent unsoundness just randomly In my rides, and it would change, sometimes right hind, sometimes up front. It was really weird, but never lasted long enough for a vet to diagnose. I stopped riding him for about 2 weeks and just stuck to long lining or lunging to stay off his back. He had lost so much weight/muscle that my saddle wasn’t fitting. He wouldn’t pick up the canter, he would kick out at the whip, pin his ears and stick his head straight up in the air and wouldn’t go forward. I had the chiropractor out for his back and she said he shouldn’t be as sore as he is for the amount of work he was in. A few days later his Lyme test came back positive. Everything at the time felt like one thing after another, but now everything has been said and done, it was really just all the symptoms of Lyme. He’s put on so much weight in the last few weeks and his overall attitude has gotten better. I would say def get your horses tested even if they’re not showing symptoms, the earlier it’s diagnosed, the earlier it can be treated/prevented with the vaccine.

Holy basil or TULSI (Ocimum tenuiflorum) one of my absolute favourite herbs for Lyme and Mould sensitivities. I grow it in our garden for a number of reasons. 🍃Firstly it grows amazingly well, attracts soooo many bees 🐝and can be propagated so I have gifted many plants from my original bush (which is now 6 years old). 🍃It also does not need the flowers picked to stop going to seed like common basil and can get 1m tall. 🍃 Medicinally, it is anti bacterial, anti viral and anti fungal, anti anxiety, anti depressant, so a herb I use a lot with my patients with chronic stealth infections e.g Lyme disease, Epstein Barr virus and mould illness. AND it is an adaptogen so brilliant for adrenal depletion and fatigue. 💚There are over 1000 studies In PubMed about the benefits of this herb. 🍃 I know🤗, it does not get better than that for a good all round tonic. If you are not growing this in your garden or in a plant pot then please do as the world needs more Holy basil (and more bees) 🐝 🍃 Traditionally used in Ayurvedic Indian medicine for many conditions such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, ring worm, eczema, Malaria. The whole plant is used. I also add it to pesto’s and my spinach pie even though it is a little bitter, it still has a great flavour and smells Devine.🤗 High in minerals calcium and zinc, Vit C, A and chlorophyll. I eat the leaves straight from the bush but can also be made into tea For more info on herbs and recipes. http:www.amina.com.au/ 🍃 holybasil tulsi herbalist herbs herbalmedicine medicinalherbs naturopathamina hillierretreat lymedisease lyme adrenals ayurvedicmedicine healing ayurvedicherbs chronicillness mouldillness msids medicalherb herbalism basil noosa cirs noosaholistichealth antibacterial antivirus ebv candida stress stressrelief chronicfatiguesyndrome

ALL OF THIS & MORE May is lymediseaseawarenessmonth. Lyme is one of the most misunderstood and overlooked invisible illnesses. I’m sure we all know this first hand. It can create severe multi-systemic ailments and symptoms—all of which many healthcare providers and practitioners fail to link with a diagnosis of Lyme Disease. It can take months, years, decades, and sometimes never to have a Lyme Disease diagnosis. The consistent failure of misdiagnosis a Lyme Disease patient often enhances bodily symptoms and issues, and harms the effected systems. It is unfair that there is such lack of awareness and knowledge about Lyme Disease in our healthcare system; the disease is unfortunately on the rise, especially in areas along the north east. National leaders and politicians fail to improve the flawed ways of healthcare that may help us (L.D. patients). It angers me that some of the only quality treatments and effective protocols are in no way covered by insurance. In fact, insurance companies see Lyme Disease patients of a risk since they generally undergo lengthy, alternative, and sometimes non-FDA approved treatments. It’s disgusting that the FDA denies the approval of so many treatments that could be beneficial to the sufferers of Lyme Disease. There are treatments in Europe that have shown effective and greatly helpful to Lyme Disease patients. However, the FDA and our health insurance companies are so disturbingly unaware and careless of the significant toll Lyme Disease takes on our lives. Each time I received treatment for L.D. in a holistic medical office, I couldn’t help but notice the financial burden it was to not only myself/my family receiving this treatment, but even the patients surrounding me in that office. It’s sad. It’s sickening. The more awareness and advocacy from people in the chronic illness community can potentially lead to a positive change—the change in our healthcare system we’ve been waiting for. I’m grateful for social media because it has given L.D. sufferers many ways to not only cope but to ADVOCATE. The more patients who share their stories to the public, the better of a chance we have. spoonie lymedisease spoonielife

It is so sweet to get a nice review, especially from a cherished well respected Naturopath Gosia gosia_naturopath . Thank you lovely 🙏🏼💚☘️ “Not every day you come across people who simply take your breath away. Amina is one of those people who just inspire and amaze you over and over again. Amina is a respected Naturopath & Herbalist, (holds a title of best practitioner of the year), she is a presenter at the conferences here and overseas, practices at her clinic in Noosa and now she has written a book called Lyme Naturally. I often wonder how can she do so much and still have time for her family. She is an example of living life with a purpose and passion. Amina is my greatest inspiration, the most knowledgeable Naturopath and Herbalist I know. Spending the last weekend with her was such a treat. She told me that the next book will be coming out soon! 🤩 Just finished reading LYME NATURAL. Although this book contains details about Lyme disease, what it is, how to treat it, etc there is also lots of information about body systems, various tests and how to read them, mould illness, nutrition, prevention, treating Lyme and stealth infections with herbal medicine plus case studies. All very interesting. Highly recommend reading this great book.

WHAT ABOUT THIS? ———————————— The headache is a perplexing ailment that afflicts most people at some point. It's a symptom of dozens of different diseases, and it can also have dozens of causes — or no apparent cause at all. ————————————————— Researchers have now found evidence that ordinary foods like nuts, beans and cheese may be linked to severe, incapacitating headaches in some people, reports the Wall Street Journal. The culinary culprit? Tyramine. ————————————————— Tyramine occurs naturally in food from the breakdown of amino acids, and it's believed to trigger an immune response — plus a splitting headache — in certain people. High levels of tyramine are often found in foods that are aged, pickled or stored for long periods: Cheeses like brie, cheddar and provolone, pickles and salami and other cured meats contain high levels of tyramine, as do peanuts, Brazil nuts, avocados, bananas and fava, navy and pinto beans. ————————————————— But predicting when a certain food may or may not spark a headache is tricky. ———————————————————————————— And because the interval between consuming food that triggers headaches and the onset of head pain can be as great as 48 hours, zeroing in on a specific trigger food can be challenging, particularly after several meals have been consumed. ———————————————————————————Nitrates, which are common in processed meats like hot dogs, are also frequently blamed for food-related headaches. And though the flavor enhancer monosodium glutamate, or MSG, is frequently cited as a cause of headaches, some recent reports find that MSG may not be as unhealthy as its reputation would indicate. ——————————————————————————— lyme lymedisease lymediseaseawareness lymewarrior migrainessuck lymeregis lymediseaseawarenessmonth lymelife lymesucks lymetreatment headache lymefighter lymeisreal lymewarriors headacherelief lymediseasetreatment health healthyfood healthyrecipes healthy medical chronicillness chronicpain chronicpainawareness migraine lymefacts lymestats healthfoodporn almonds alternativemedicine

A little (true) story It’s a Sunday afternoon and whilst my friends were sipping on Bloody Marys and eating amazing things involving sourdough, but I'm in the A&E waiting room at UCLH, a hospital in London. I registered, I took a seat, and my head lolled to one side. Like it does when you're dead tired. Then it lolled to the other. And the back. And forward. And wouldn't stay still. It was weird. It was embarrassing. The man next to me was typing on a laptop about 'quivering breasts', I wanted to nosey his terrible erotic fiction but I couldn't hold my head up, or straight. And my body started to follow. Soon my torso was swaying, my head swaying and lolling around so bad that the man with tattoos all over his face and blood streaming down it was looking scared of ME. They called me up for triage. I replied to the call of my name, and tried to stand. It wasn't easy. I managed to stagger and stumble over to the little room, and throw myself into the corner chair, a sweating, shaking, wobbling wreck. The nurse asked questions I couldn't understand. Like who I was or why I was there. I wasn't sure. And I couldn't keep my head still enough to look at her, to figure the situation out. She was annoyed. She thought I was on drugs, or very drunk. A small crowd gathered to look at me. I could only see their feet as I swayed around in the chair, holding onto the desk like I was on a tiny fishing boat in high seas, and I cried. Shivering and wobbling into a wheelchair they pushed me round to a man wearing a cap that read "I (heart) Love" and who had eyes as big as dinner plates, and was chewing his own face as tears streamed down it. He was off his head. He looked at me like we were kindred spirits. Drug-addled co-conspirators. A nervous black lady was forced to sit between us, clutching her handbag to her chest, me ebbing and swaying uncontrollably on one side, him clubbing and giggling on the other. She was terrified. I wanted to smile at her, but I couldn't direct my face towards her. I had no control over my own head at allContinued in another post lyme lymedisease chronicpain chroniclyme nhs chronicillness chronicpainwarrior

Ashwaganda – (Withania somnifera) This traditional Ayurvedic herb would have to be one of my favourite herbs for treating Lyme disease symptoms of fatigue with adrenal depletion. It has been used as a tonic for over 2500 years and is my first choice as adrenal support for patients of chronic immunity deficiencies, post viruses, physical stress and those who struggle to thrive. Actions: Adaptogenic, antianxiety, anti-inflammatory, immune modulating and antianaemic and thyroid supportive. Withania is not only an excellent herb to help restore the adrenal glands, but is also a great tonic to strengthen the immune system. As it is high in iron, Withania can build the blood of patients suffering from anaemia which is common in Lyme cases. It is also beneficial for menstruating women and those with chronic parasitic infections who also often present with low iron levels. Withania may also assist in raising low white blood cells in leukopaenia. Recent studies show Withania is helpful in balancing cortisol levels and increasing the adrenal hormone DHEA which is often depleted after long term stress and those with chronic fatigue. Studies show Withania somnifera as a potential anxiolytic and immunomodulatory agent in acute sleep deprived female Wistar rats (Kaur et al, 2017). I find this herb to be invaluable for the nervous system in treating anxiety and stress symptoms. The adaptogenic actions of withanolides help patients adapt to their environment enabling them to deal with stress much more effectively. (Pingali et al, 2014). Studies show Withania increases T4 thyroid levels when the thyroid may be underactive (Gannon et al, 2014). 🍃 lyme lymedisease lymenatural mouldillness cirs viruses chronicfatiguesyndrome chronicillness chronicpain mold moldillness lymediseaseawareness lymewarrior lymeawareness

Laughter and fun can not co-exist with fear and anxiety, and so directing and planning our fun is critical to our health. ⠀ ⠀ So are our connections to our friends. ⠀ ⠀ Do not let fun fall by the wayside. ⠀ ⠀ Yes, much energy has to be devoted to merely surviving. One strategy I have is to keep a bucket list that I refresh every few months in my bullet journal. ⠀ ⠀ This list reminds me of activities that inspire and attract me, so that when I do have some energy to spare I am not scrambling to figure out what can I can do that would be fun. My current summer bucket list includes a picnic, an outdoor movie, a kayak excursion on the Potomac and seeing the Tintoretto exhibit at the National Gallery. ⠀ ⠀ I especially love picnics because they remind me of my favorite childhood novels - the Betsy-Tacy series. Do any of you know them? I also live in one of the top tourism cities in the United States, so I try to embrace the fresh eye of a tourist so I do not take the beautiful features of my home town for granted.

This is me on the Greek island of Skyros, dressed like a glamorous mackerel. It was a writing holiday with the loveliest bunch of people. We were invited to tell stories on the last night of the retreat, so I told a story of my hilariously disastrous wedding day (which I’ll outline in full at some point but featured a fire, a power cut, a storm, my boob coming out of my dress and vomit). I was bitten by a mosquito on that holiday that would make my brain swell up, causing brain damage, and stop me from being able to think, articulate, read or walk for quite a while stuff I’m still not always able to do. That Greek strain of Lyme is specifically neurological. And often causes blindness. I certainly had some vision problems with it. It was actually my third bite (the first two years before more on that later). I wasn’t feeling well on that trip. In fact I was exhausted, as it followed a 6-week shoot for work and long hours. But I wasn’t yet ‘Lyme ill’. And, as a total coincidence, I got blood test results on email whilst I was there that told me I had Lyme, from the previous bite ten years before. That’s quite a coincidence isn’t it? To finally get diagnosed after ten years of feeling ill on the same week to be bitten and infected again. Bastard bacteria. This summer I plan to go to another creative retreat, specifically for comedy (okay I confess, it may also be to meet a funny man) though I hope to be pregnant by the time I go anyway. But I’ll tell you about that in another post. chronicpain chroniclyme lymedisease greece chronicillness spoonie skyros lymediseaseuk chroniclymeuk

You know actions like eating right and moving your body are important (if you can). You know there are lots of things in our environment you’d like to avoid, but you’re just not sure how… it can all feel so overwhelming at times.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I’m here to help give you a simple tool that will empower you to live a healthier life… Essential oils can help you have a healthier body, mind, and home naturally.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ We live in a chemical laden world, and these chemicals are literally making us SICK! For those of us with Chronic Late Stage Lyme Disease, this is all the more critical. Essential oils have been used for thousands of years around the world to keep people healthy. Although they are totally "in" right now, essential oils are definitely not new. They are found to have been used in the earliest days of the Bible!

Ticks occur mostly in tall grass and wooded areas. In tall grass ticks wait to crawl on to passing animals and people as their legs brush against the grass. If a tick has transferred to your body, or your pets’, it may take several hours before it attaches to its host. This gives you some time to inspect and remove a tick before it begins to bite. Thorough tick checks are essential to do on your pets, especially after they have been in a long grassy area or a heavily wooded area!

This little 🐻 cub turns 6 years old today! I cannot even begin to understand where the years have gone! For the day we will be enjoying some marshaandbear followed by presents and then going snorkeling. I convinced him we need to go to a pool instead of the lake. He was hard to convince, but I got him there! Lol

Kleszcze są najaktywniejsze rano (tuż po zejściu rosy) oraz po południu (od godziny 15 aż do północy). Na ich ugryzienie jesteśmy narażeni nie tylko w lesie, lecz także w parku czy na łące. Swoją ofiarę wyczuwają z odległości nawet 30 m i bezboleśnie atakują gdyż w swojej ślinie posiadają substancje znieczulajace. uwaga kleszcz kleszcze tick ticks borelioza bacteria bakteria borrelia borreliaburgdorferi lyme lymedisease disease choroba przyroda natura bestia monster robak samica śmierć hunting worm owad insect samica samiec larwa nimfa

💚 MORE LYMEWALKS TAKE PLACE 💚 Big thanks to Susan Small, who volunteered to organise a Lymewalk In Glasgow with family and friends last weekend for LymeAwarenessMonth We love how involved they all got in the 'Lime for Lyme' theme 💚 And thanks to the fantastic support from her community, Susan raised over £1,400 for our charity Congratulations Susan has experience of being under-treated for Lyme disease, and received little support from the NHS during her ordeal. She is therefore passionate about the need for more research to find a treatment and cure for everyone, to be available on the NHS We're so grateful to Susan, those who took part on the walk, and everyone who donated to her fundraising page lyme lymedisease lymediseaseawareness lymewarriors cureforlymedisease cureforlyme fightlymedisease fightinglyme lymewarrior tickbites tickbite just1bite lymelife chroniclyme chronicillness chroniclymedisease LymeDiseaseAwarenessMonth lymedontkillmyvibe

Almonds VS Aspirin WHAT’s YOUR OPINION??? ——————————————————————————— ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????A throbbing headache can be solved with magnesium-rich foods. It is hard-wired into our brains to automatically use Aspirin as a cure. Almonds contain the same inflammatory ingredient, salicin, which is known to treat the pain of a headache. In combining salicylates with the function of magnesium — to help relax the blood vessels — any migraine or headache is very likely to disappear. The Doctor approved, Bottom Line’s, “Secret Food Cures,” states that 15 raw almonds equal one aspirin. Not only is there an end to the headache, but the almonds provide a high source of Vitamin E and protein. Better eat up! ——————————————————————————— lyme lymedisease lymediseaseawareness lymewarrior lymedontkillmyvibe lymeregis lymediseaseawarenessmonth lymelife lymesucks lymetreatment lymediseasechallenge lymefighter lymeisreal lymewarriors lymediseasewarrior lymediseasetreatment health healthyfood healthyrecipes healthy medical chronicillness chronicpain chronicpainawareness lymenow lymefacts lymestats healthfoodporn almonds alternativemedicine

. You may be feeling pressured, cloudy in thought, or done with being where you are at. (I know I certainly was! 😂 After 6 months of treatment on frequencymedicine for lymedisease , I feel like I’m ready to throw in the towel. Seriously, I feel like I’m dying, and I’m not sure what to do next.) . In this case, patience is a virtue. Hold onto hope. Labor pains come before a birth Time has sprung forward. We are moving out of darkness and into a period of more light. This weekend’s new moon is a great time to think about, plan, or prepare for what you’d like to birth or manifest this Spring. 🌱 . The world’s most successful people and greatest businessmen, athletes, and performers have something in common: They spend time visualizing their goals. So make some time to journal, meditate, or do whatever you do to get in your zone and set your intentions for what you’d like to experience this season. 📝 . Its also a great time to do a bit of Spring cleaning. Removing clutter removes old energy from the home. This and organization help with clarity, focus, and health. It makes room to invite new experiences into your life You may like to add a little color into your home to brighten your spirits: fresh flowers, a new coat of paint, anything that adds a little life to your environment and brightens your day. 🌻 . Lately, I’ve been playing more of my favorite music while at home, and diffusing citrus essential oils to purify the air and uplift my mood. 🎶 It really does help! 😉 . Opening a window or two on a nice day is also a nice way to bring some fresh energy into the home Keep on keepin’ on :) Spring is almost here! Wishing you the best in health 😊 newbirth hope simplemessages newmoonintentions fengshuiliving fengshui fengshuiconsultant oraclecardreading cardreadingsavailable
