Subject: Congress Commends NIH Collaboration with Advocacy Groups to Advance Research on Maternal-Fetal Transmission of Lyme Disease


To the Tick-Borne Disease Working Group,

Please see the news release below regarding congenital Lyme and the NIH.

Congenital Lyme was first identified in 1985 (Allen Steere) per the attached lengthy list of references and yet it took 37 years for the NIH to acknowledge this evidence? Isn’t this a crystal clear indication that our Public Health Agencies are COMPLETELY BROKEN!!

We have autopsy results and a lengthy list of references proving chronic Lyme as well and that too is going unrecognized by members Dixon and Sood on this Working Group. Isn’t this a crystal clear indication that our Public Health representatives are COMPLETELY BROKEN!!

Announcement from Bruce Fries, President, Patient Centered Care Advocacy Group:

Congress Commends NIH Collaboration with Advocacy Groups to Advance Research on Maternal-Fetal Transmission of Lyme Disease (Please read this article!!)
https://www.webwire.com/ViewPressRel.asp?aId=284113

Note from Bruce Fries:

Since NIH has a history of noncompliance with appropriations directives for Lyme, the release includes language to hold them accountable. Success will be determined by the amount of grants funded that have measurable benefits for mothers and children.

Much of the long-term follow-up will be addressing the bias in the NIH special study sections that prevents grants from being approved for research that might challenge the mainstream dogma. Rather than calling the baby ugly, I think a better approach may be to push for creation of a special study section that focuses on tick-borne diseases and make sure the nomination and selection processes are open and transparent.

Many thanks to the advocates and advocacy groups who helped make this happen.

Attn: Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, Congenital Lyme and the NIH

Dear Rep DeLauro,

Please take a moment to read the following email thread and attachment addressed to the Federal Tick-Borne Disease Working Group. From the announcement below, the 2022 appropriations bill for the NIH signed into law on March 15 requires the NIH to advance research on maternal-fetal transmission of Lyme disease.

Maternal-fetal transmission of Lyme disease was identified in 1985 and it has taken 27 years for our Public Health Officials to recognize and investigate only after an act of congress?

Congenital Transmission of Lyme (personal Dropbox storage area)
https://www.dropbox.com/s/g5am2pamxc1a4hx/Congenital%20Transmission%20of%20Lyme.doc?dl=0

As you will read below, congenital Lyme is only the tip of the iceberg as chronic infection after extensive antibiotic treatment has been verified through autopsy studies. What does this mean? We have been dealing with an antibiotic resistant/tolerant superbug denied by the same Public Health Officials who have suppressed evidence of congenital Lyme for twenty-seven years!

Patient testimony all across America is describing a disease that is destroying lives, ending careers while leaving its victim in financial ruin. Read the Written Public Comments published with each of the Working Group’s meetings to gain an understanding of the suffering. No matter how many of these comments are documented, no matter how many studies identifying persistent infection, the Federal representatives and past co-chair of this Working Group refer to chronic Lyme as a “religious belief.”

Chronic Lyme as a “religious belief” [Dr. David Walker]
https://www.lymedisease.org/tuttle-comment-tbdwg-nov17/

Quote from Senator Richard Blumenthal: (2011)!!!

“Today for me culminates more than a decade of work and probably a decade more, because I’ve seen firsthand the devastating, absolutely unacceptable damage done by Lyme disease to individual human beings, Connecticut children and residents whose lives have been changed forever as a result of Lyme disease”  Source: http://ctmirror.org/2011/07/18/blumenthal-takes-lyme-disease-fight-senate/

It is time to put an end to this Medical Mafia suppressing scientific evidence (for the purpose of controlling the narrative) and find a cure for this antibiotic resistant/tolerant superbug. Those of us who have studied the mishandling of Lyme disease are convinced that the rush to create a vaccine (LYMErix) is the root cause because a chronic relapsing seronegative disease did not fit the vaccine model. The FDA has fast-tracked a Lyme disease vaccine while this Working Group is in session; a vaccine for a disease that the IDSA describes as “Hard to Catch and Easily Treated” with 2-4 weeks of antibiotics.

So what is the message I’m trying to convey here? You or a loved one (and everyone else reading this message) is a single tick bite away from experiencing this travesty. One more important question Rep Delauro; How much Lyme disease is in America’s blood supply??

A response to this inquiry is requested.

Respectfully submitted,

[#MeAgain] New Beginnings: How Nicole Williams Overcame Lyme and Began a Journey to Start a Family

View Larger New Beginnings: How Nicole Williams Overcame Lyme and Began a Journey to Start a Family [#MeAgain]

Interview by Jenny Lelwica Buttaccio
Posted 1/6/22

Born and raised in Southern California, ticks weren’t on Nicole Williams’ radar while growing up. Though she was an adventurous person — traveling, exploring, and studying abroad when she could — she didn’t spend much time in wooded areas, so tick-borne diseases like Lyme disease weren’t a cause for concern.

In 2014, Nicole decided to move to Nashville, Tennessee, excited about the new possibilities and opportunities that awaited her. But eight months into her stay, she began to experience a range of unusual symptoms: brain fog, joint and nerve pain, and memory problems were just some of the issues she dealt with. As a travel writer and editor, she also noticed her ability to articulate words began to diminish, and she was having trouble getting out of bed some days.

In search of answers, Nicole saw doctor after doctor, but they didn’t know what was wrong with her. With the ongoing, supportive help of her mother and the suggestion of a family friend, she was tested for Lyme disease and received a positive result.

Over the next several years, Nicole embarked on an epic journey to regain her health and her life. Here, she shares the healing story of hope and perseverance, her road to natural and herbal therapies, and finally, to marriage, pregnancy, and beginning her family.

I was trying to find an answer, and my mom had a friend back in California who lived in the neighborhood that she would often run into on walks. They struck up a kind of friendship and would have conversations. This woman suffered for many years with Lyme disease, and every time my mom would tell her about me, she said to my mom, “I think she should get tested for Lyme.” And so, it was my mom who was really championing this, “I think you need to get tested for Lyme disease.”

I struggled with it because I thought, “No, I don’t have Lyme. I’ve never been bitten by a tick. I’ve never really been a woodsy person.” I like adventure, but I don’t go camping. I didn’t think that I had it. But my mom had heard this woman’s story and told me that she’d had it her whole life.

For me, that was the kiss of death — if I got diagnosed with Lyme disease, and it’s a lifelong battle. I didn’t want to hear that. I was hoping for some other diagnosis.

I asked an orthopedic doctor I was seeing in Tennessee if I should have [a Lyme test], and he said, “You know that there’s no Lyme disease here.” But we finally did it, and that test came back negative.

Then, I was in California, and I had a doctor agree to run the test again, and that one came back positive — and this was just the standard lab test. With the positive test, we said, “Okay, now we know what we’re dealing with.” We assumed, based on that positive test result and my clinical symptoms, that I had Lyme disease. That doctor put me on the standard course of doxycycline and said, “Alright, here’s 30 days of antibiotics, and you’ll be fine.” Then, we started researching Lyme-literate doctors in my area.

I found an LLMD near Nashville and started going to him, and he had me on a cocktail of different antibiotics. I did intravenous UV light therapy because I also had Epstein-Barr. I was on a whole course of all these different meds, and at the time, I thought I was tolerating it all pretty well. He was a proponent of diet as well; I didn’t really believe that the diet would be the answer.

But when I was on all the antibiotics, I cut back on alcohol; I cut back on sugar because I had read that the microbes feed off sugar; I cut out dairy because dairy could counteract some of the antibiotics. So in my head, I had justified a couple of dietary changes to try to increase my chances of treatment working.

But one night, I got up in the middle of the night and had to use the bathroom, and I passed out. I had a display of all the meds I was on, and I had my little pill organizer, and I actually passed out on them. I took that as a sign to say, “I’m done. This is too much. I’m taking too much. I’m overwhelming my body.” I felt some improvement, so I decided to stop the meds.

When I stopped treatment, I added all the stuff back into my diet that I had cut out. I thought, “Well, it doesn’t matter now — I’ll have a little bit of sugar,” and everything came back with a vengeance. My symptoms worsened, and I realized there was more to this — how I eat and what I put in my body — than I wanted to admit initially. One day, I woke up and thought, “Alright. No sugar. No dairy. No soy, corn, or gluten.” I went on a full anti-inflammatory diet, which was really hard.

Through this whole experience, my mom was my biggest advocate, but she also took the brunt of a lot of my pain because I was never ready to hear, “Okay, what’s next? What you’re doing has stopped working. You need to take it to the next level.”

It was actually my mom who stumbled on Dr. Rawls on Facebook. Something came up about one of his webinars. We watched one, and we both ended up reading his book (Unlocking Lyme), but I still waited a long time before starting the herbal protocol. I wasn’t ready to commit to that next thing financially. I just wasn’t there yet.

Then, my now husband proposed, and we were planning our wedding. I wanted to see if herbs could take me to my wedding day feeling more like myself. I was already doing well with the diet, and I was completely homeopathic at that point. I felt good about it because I was giving my body what it needed to be healthy.

I did a consult in January of 2018, and I jumped right in. I did one pill of each for a week and then two pills of each for the next week, and then I was on the full dose and tolerating them well. I started seeing improvements pretty quickly. My wedding was in April of 2018, and I did reach my goal of feeling good on my wedding day. For almost three years, I took full doses of the herbs and knew they were working.

Now, we’ve been married three years. About the two-year mark, we knew things with us were good — and of course, the pandemic happened. But we were both working from home, and we were spending more time together. It felt like the right time for us as a family to talk about having kids. It was a fear of mine that I could pass [Lyme] onto my child. How would I feel if my child was sick because of me?

In November of 2020, I did a consult with Dr. Rawls, and with his history of being an OB, I was curious to hear what he had to say. He gave me a lot of confidence in where I had come in my journey. If you truly believe that chronic illness is an immune dysfunction, there’s not one thing that makes you ill. It’s multiple things: toxins in your environment, toxins in your food, stress, lack of sleep. Why not find harmony with the microbes and find a way to feel better because you’re not going to get rid of them completely?

That was sort of my thought process with procreating: I’ve learned so much about my body and about wellness, well-being, health, food, toxins in my environment and the products I use, and I thought, “If I can take that and apply that to a major life event like a pregnancy or how I raise my child, I’ll feel more equipped to handle whatever comes up in the future.”

In December of 2020, I conceived our son. I decided I was going to stop the herbs and see how my body does, and worst-case scenario, if I need to add them back in postpartum, I will. But I’ve made sure to keep a very clean diet. The pregnancy hormones were wonderful, and I was just really conscious of how I managed my health through the pregnancy.

In September of 2021, I gave birth to our son Jacob. I wanted to be as natural as I could, so I ended up doing an unmedicated birth. That was a true test of my strength, and I had a really smooth birth. I’m still feeling good to this day — minus a flareup at 10 weeks postpartum. I haven’t added the herbs back yet since I’m breastfeeding, but I take Epsom salts baths and detox as much as possible, but I don’t want to do too much because of breastfeeding.

For me, the takeaway with all of this is that [Lyme] doesn’t go away. I struggled with that for years while I was sick, thinking that this would be my forever, but I’ve found peace with it. I have bad days, but they do pass, and I learned from them and appreciate the good days more.

Looking back, I’m thankful for what I went through because I learned so much in the process. I learned how to be an advocate for myself. I know how to be an advocate for a child. One of my fears was, what if I feel terrible those nine months of pregnancy? How am I going to get through it? But I feel like I learned much more about my body and how to stay healthy in ways that I’m appreciative of now. As a new mom, I now have the tools to get better if a relapse were to happen to me. I know what works. I know what to do, and it’s a constant journey.

Nov. 30, 2021

Analysis by Dr. Mercola

Story at-a-glance

  • At Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver, British Columbia, 13 babies were allegedly stillborn in a period of 24 hours; all of their mothers had received a COVID-19 injection
  • At a rally outside the hospital, doctors launched an official complaint with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police against executives at the College of Physicians & Surgeons of BC, alleging conflicts of interest influencing their policies, decisions and statements made to the people of British Columbia
  • Scotland has also experienced an unusual rise in infant death rates; during September 2021, at least 21 babies under 4 weeks died — a rate of 4.9 per 1,000 births, up from an average of 2 per 1,000 births
  • As of November 12, 2021, there were 2,620 cases of fetal death or stillbirth among women who received a COVID-19 injection reported to the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)
  • The CDC-sponsored study that was widely used to support the U.S. recommendation for pregnant women to get injected “presents falsely reassuring statistics”
  • When the risk of miscarriage was recalculated to include all women injected prior to 20 weeks’ gestation, the incidence was seven to eight times higher than the original study indicated, with a cumulative incidence of miscarriage ranging from 82% to 91%

Excerpts:

Calls for Immediate Withdrawal of mRNA Shots

Not only does the IPAK data show COVID-19 injections prior to 20 weeks are unsafe for pregnant women, but 12.6% women who received it in the 3rd trimester reported Grade 3 adverse events, which are severe or medically significant but not immediately life-threatening. Another 8% also reported a fever of 38 degrees C (100.4 degrees F), which can lead to miscarriage or premature labor.13

Further, the study follow-up only continued for 28 days after birth, meaning the long-term effects of prenatal exposure to babies is unknown. The many concerns of mRNA COVID-19 injections during pregnancy and breastfeeding include transmission of mRNA and spike protein across the placenta and through breast milk, as well as the inhibition of synctyin-1, a protein essential for cell fusion and placental development.

Pregnant women were excluded from the mRNA injection clinical trials, but a Pfizer-BioNTech rat study revealed the injection more than doubled the incidence of preimplantation loss and also led to a low incidence of mouth/jaw malformations, gastroschisis (a birth defect of the abdominal wall) and abnormalities in the right-sided aortic arch and cervical vertebrae in the fetuses.14

Together, IPAK believes the data are compelling enough to withdraw the shots for vulnerable populations. Noting their advice in boldface, they say:15

“Considering the evidence presented here, we suggest the immediate withdrawal of mRNA vaccine use in pregnancy (Category X) and those breastfeeding, alongside the withdrawal of mRNA vaccines to children or those of child-bearing age in the general population, until more convincing data relating to the safety and long-term impacts on fertility, pregnancy and reproduction are established in these groups.”

MIT Scientist on COVID “Vaccine”: ‘Don’t Go Near It’ & Warnings for Pregnant Women

MIT Scientist on COVID Vaccine: ‘Don’t Go Near It’ + Warnings for Pregnant Women

10/21/21

The latest episode of CHD.TV’s “Against the Wind” with host Dr. Paul Thomas featured an interview with Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., senior research scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology who discussed the “stealth design” of messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccines.

Thomas also interviewed Neil Z. Miller, medical research journalist, director of Think Twice Global Vaccine Institute and author of “Miller’s Review of Critical Vaccine Studies,” on his extensive research on the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) and COVID vaccines.

Thomas began the show with a big announcement: He is taking care of pediatric patients again. His medical license, suspended by the Oregon Medical Board days prior to publishing a vaccinated versus unvaccinated study, was reinstated in June.

Next, Thomas asked Seneff why doctors like Peter McCullough and scientists like herself believe mRNA vaccines pose more risks than benefits to everyone who receives them, including the elderly and children.

Seneff said:

“I believe that they are extremely toxic and a lot of it has to do with all the manipulations that they made on the product. It’s a completely not-natural system. They’ve created this monster messenger RNA molecule that pretends to be human, but the changes that they made in the messenger RNA that would normally be a virus — they turned it into a human messenger RNA. That’s very important.”

Seneff and Thomas discussed how this molecular change makes cells miss signals and act inappropriately, which causes severe adverse effects, including reproductive harm.

Seneff offered parting words to anyone taking the COVID vaccine, “Don’t go near it,” she said.

Thomas shifted the conversation to Miller, who reported three discoveries based on his analysis of VAERS and COVID vaccines:

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) analysis on the safety of COVID vaccination during pregnancy, published in the The New England Journal of Medicine, was conducted on 827 pregnant women. The analysis concluded no “obvious safety signals,” yet Miller’s review of the tables found 104 spontaneous abortions, which is 12.6% of the participants. Of the participants, 700 were not vaccinated until the third trimester.
  • Older age groups are most likely to have serious adverse events after COVID vaccination.
  • Based on his 2021 study on vaccines and sudden infant deaths, of the 2,605 infant deaths reported to VAERS from 1990-2019, 58% clustered within three days of post-vaccination and 78% of infant deaths reported to VAERS clustered within seven days post-vaccination.

Miller also presented an analysis of four peer-reviewed studies on the vaccinated versus unvaccinated, including a 2021 study co-authored by CHD.TV’s Brian Hooker, Ph.D., which found vaccinated children were significantly more likely than unvaccinated children to develop adverse health conditions.

Regular contributor Bernadette Pajer, public policy director of Informed Choice Washington, finished the third part of the show with news and information on journalist  Jeremy Hammond’s article on natural immunity, and what the CDC is hiding about COVID vaccines and myocarditis, according to tech entrepreneur Steve Kirsch.

Tune in every Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. PT / 1:30 p.m. ET for a new episode of “Against the Wind” on CHD.TV.

“Against the Wind” is hosted by Dr. Paul Thomas, a Portland, Oregon pediatrician and author of “The Vaccine-Friendly Plan.” Each show features interviews with doctors and scientists who are bringing light to vital studies not covered by the media, and the persecution they face for standing up for medical freedom.
