A Bartonella Story

Mom, also a veterinarian, ran to ground her son’s “medical mystery.”


The link above will lead you to an incredible article written by Microbiologist, Tom Grier.  There is even a pdf version with extra spacing that makes it easier to read.

In a nutshell, he shows that “virtually no funding in any country has been put into Borrelia pathology.”  He also states, “there are more than a dozen species of Borrelia that cause Lyme disease, many of which can penetrate any tissue, and add a couple Relapsing Fevers that tag along for the ride, and it becomes clear that the Lyme disease blood tests based on Borrelia burgdorferi detection that have been used for 30+ years have become pretty much useless.”

There you have it folks – straight from the horse’s mouth – with more to follow.

Grier’s story of how he met and began working with Duray can only be chalked up to Providence as at the time Grier, infected with Lyme himself, could barely walk or stay awake.  The rest would make for great nonfiction – but unfortunately, it’s ALL TRUE.  Let’s just say restraining orders are involved and other stuff you wouldn’t believe – but then again, most of you would because similar things have happened to you.

There are direct links showing:

*Mother-to-child transmission of Borrelia across the womb

*Burgdorferi and miyamotoi associated with amyloid plaques in Alzheimer’s brains

*Borrelia found in Lewy Body Dementia

*Nematode worms found in Alzheimer’s brains

*Borrelia found in five deadly brain tumors (Glioblastoma multiforme)

*Borrelia Mayonii and Borrelia burgdorferi found in human testicle

Grier states that what this means is that some dementia patients, if caught early, may improve on antibiotics (similarly to Kris Kristofferson’s story) https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2016/06/09/alzheimers-byproduct-of-infection/, or even stop the progression of disease – but that treatment must be from a clinical diagnosis due to the poor testing.  It is also possible that lengthy and/or life-long therapy will be needed – and that adding an anti parasitic medicine might be the first step due to the research showing nematodes in the brain which harbor the Lyme spirochete.  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2016/06/03/borrelia-hiding-in-worms-causing-chronic-brain-diseases/.

On page four of Grier’s article he tells the story of Jack Gordon – a patient with Lewy-Body dementia.  His wife, Betty, a Lyme patient and advocate in Iowa, donated money to determine if Jack’s brain had borrelia in it.  It did.  Grier states this research is what helped them connect Lyme and Lewy-Body Dementia.

Similarly to the treatment stated above, if Lewy-Body Dementia patients can be found in the early stages, antibiotics could halt the formation of alpha-synuclein, and that the addition of an anti parasitic would be wise for the same reason stated above.

He goes on to discuss the research involving those with MS.  Grier feels that due to their research also discovering nematode involvement, the MS patient should be put on an anti parasite for nematodes, (making sure to kill all parasites in every growth stage including eggs) followed by antibiotics for Borrelia.  He states treatment would have to be aggressive to get past the Blood-Brain-Barrier, and prolonged to eradicate the Borrelia.

He also reports that while the work of veterinarian Dr. Elizabeth Burgess DVM PhD in 1990 showed that dogs infected with LD were transmitting and infecting female dogs through sexual transmission, proof in humans is lacking.  Pathologist Alan McDonald found B. burgdorferi and B. mayonii in the testicle and brain of a man who had been treated nearly continuously on antibiotics for the last seven years of his life.  Grier states the case for sexual transmission is stronger than ever.

The take home:  Treat all Borrelia early and aggressively to prevent Borrelia in immune privileged sites like the testicles and brain, and that antibiotics may not be enough, so infected couples should use a condom.

***Grier gives the caution:  Do not self treat with antihelminithics as they can cause severe inflammatory reactions and fatal encephalitis.


Marshfield Clinic has partnered with Coppe Labs of Waukesha in doing research for tick borne illnesses, and they need volunteerscontrols (those without Lyme) as well as infected (those with Lyme).  

The year-long trial starts this fall, will probably stop in winter, and then resume in the spring.  Participants get a $50 stipend each time they give a sample.

For more information, call Lisa at 715-389-5738, ext. 9-5738.

Participants must be older than 10, with an untreated bullseye or other LD rash or a suspected case of LD without a rash.  A blood and/or urine sample with be collected.  The CRC is looking for 50 people with Lyme and 50 as controls (no history of LD).

Researchers from across the system will help, including those at the Minocqua, Weston, and Eau Claire Centers.

Common Groups of Diseases

“There are various diseases that have common symptoms and disease mechanism but with different labels such as – chronic Lyme disease, autism, myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) Gulf war illness (GWI) and mold/biotoxin illness. All these patient groups have been neglected and abused by the U.S. government health agencies.

The CDC Fraud with vaccines and lyme (OspA) connection:

The LYMEerix vaccine was manufactured with ‘outer surface protein A’ (OspA). OspA is fungal and therefore has an immunosuppressive effect – causing post-sepsis syndrome. People injected with this vaccine were effected similarly to those bitten by a tick -which injects spirochetes (toxic fungi). Ironically, this vaccine was making people sick with the exact thing it was supposed to prevent!

The LYMErix vaccine gave people the same disease we know of as chronic neurologic Lyme, so then what is the disease? What is OspA?

The LYMErix vaccine was patented by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and prevention (CDC). The synthetic OspA injected into subjects in the trial for the vaccine were getting sick. They were injected with a fungal type antigen which is toxic to humans.

LYMErix was pulled off the market when this fact was revealed to the FDA. But was anyone prosecuted like with the NECC scandal? Did anyone go to jail for racketeering? Was a fund set up for the victims?

Petition for a Congressional Investigation

It’s time to hold the CDC, Merck, Yale, IDSA (and others) responsible for the lives they have destroyed. Carl Tuttle started a petition with over 34k signatures so far – “Calling for a Congressional investigation of the CDC, IDSA and ALDF”


The CDC fraudulently use the “two-tier” Lyme testing method set forth by the IDSA that has a high rate of false negatives and it was not FDA approved or validated.

VaxXed Call for Congressional Letters

The VaxXed (documentary the current CDC whistleblower, fraud with vaccines) leaders encourage viewers to write their congressmen asking for Dr. Thompson to be subpoenaed, the CDC dismantled and appropriate independent studies run, as well as for vaccines to be classified as a drug.

The film VaxXed is a great opportunity to raise awareness about CDC’s neglect and inability to properly oversee these issues. The momentum building with this film could definitely help the Lyme community with the CDC malfeasance info (as well as the other neglected and abused groups) during an investigation and a congressional hearing.

The State of Florida has announced that four people infected with Zika were possibly bitten by local Aedes aegypi mosquitoes.  The CDC is working with Florida officials investigating the cases.

Here’s what’s known

*Most people (80%) infected with Zika virus won’t have symptoms or will only have mild symptoms.

*Zika is spread to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito (Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus).  This link shows where these mosquitos are in the U.S. http://www.consumerreports.org/insect-repellent/where-zika-mosquitoes-can-live-in-the-us/

*It is sexually transmitted.

*It is congenitally transmitted.

*Zika virus infection can cause microcephaly and other severe fetal brain defects, and is associated with other adverse pregnancy outcomes.

*No vaccines or treatments are currently available to treat or prevent Zika infections.

*As of July, 2016, 1,658 U.S. cases have been reported to the CDC – none of which are believed to be spread by local mosquitoes.

“The Zika virus outbreak currently gripping the Americas could have been sparked by the release of genetically modified mosquitoes in 2012, critics say.

The insects were engineered by biotechnology experts to combat the spread of dengue fever and other diseases and released into the general population of Brazil in 2012.

But with the World Health Organisation (WHO) now meeting in Geneva to desperately discuss cures for the Zika virus, speculation has mounted as to the cause of this sudden outbreak.

The Zika virus was first discovered in the 1950s but the recent outbreak has escalated alarmingly, causing birth defects and a range of health problems in South and central America.”


After much nail-biting (both the Senate and the House overrode the governor’s veto), Massachusetts now has mandatory insurance coverage for long-term Lyme treatment.
