The Symptoms Of Lyme … and no, you don’t need to be bit by a tick to suffer

imgres

About 15 years ago, after patients had cleared Syphillis, other mysterious symptoms started being consistently illuminated.  Backache, lymph-node swelling, kidney affectations and flu-like symptoms were coming up in small group of patients.  It was Dr. Sankaran, I believe, who’d written that after Syph. is addressed, look for symptoms of Lyme.  The Genetic Miasms are not directly stemming from direct sexual transmission or even a bite from a tick anymore, however, as a function of human evolution, the disease is showing up in our inner milieux as just one more hoop to be jumped before we can know our human freedom.

Imagine, my surprise then, when I recently noticed that my back wasn’t just aching due to my nordic walking routine.  I was inordinately tired, which is not something that I typically experience.  I had a lot of heat in my kidneys and I just felt a general malaise and irritability.  Over the last 10 days, I’ve constantly felt like I did when I was a kid, with a kidney infection coming on.  My hands were also slightly vibrating, like my central nervous system was on overload.  Yesterday, I went pale as a sheet and had to go lie down while in a clinic meeting.  When I got back up, Jeff and I looked at each other and at the same time spoke the word, “Lyme.”

It’s a physical and mental shape shifter as Jeff wrote about here.  He actually experienced it’s surprising effects 3 years ago and wrote about his mental sufferings with this disease matrix himself here.  We’ve even cured dogs of it where it was clearly showing up after a tick bite in their kidneys.   We treat it the same as we do any other Miasmic Disease, on the sound basis of law, like cures like as illustrated here.

Here’s a further romp into this disease matrix as per an article I found in the New York Times:

TYPICAL COURSE

  • Stage 1 . In the majority of cases, the first sign of early Lyme disease is the appearance of a bull’s-eye skin rash. It usually develops about 1 – 2 weeks after the bite, although it may appear as soon as 3 days, and as late as 1 month. In some cases, it is never detected. Flu-like symptoms (joint aches, fever, and general fatigue) commonly develop.
  • Stage 2 . Untreated, the infection spreads through the bloodstream and lymph nodes within days to weeks, involving the joints, nervous system, and possibly the heart. Multiple rashes may erupt in other places. If the infection affects the nervous system in stage 2, it most often causes weakness or paralysis in the nerves of the face (Bell’s palsy) or in nerves of the spine.
  • Stage 3 . If the disease remains untreated, a persistent infection can occur after a few weeks or months, leading to prolonged bouts of arthritis and neurologic problems, such as concentration problems or personality changes. Fatigue is a prominent feature of both early and late stages.

SKIN RASH

The bull’s-eye skin rash, known as erythema migrans (ECM), usually first appears on the thigh, buttock, or trunk in older children and adults, and on the head or neck in young children.

The bull’s eye rash, which is considered the classic sign of Lyme disease, may take the following course:

  • It can first appear as a pimple-like spot, which expands over the next few days into a purplish circle. The circle may reach up to 6 inches in diameter with a deeper red rim. In some cases the ring is incomplete, forming an arc rather than a full circle.
  • The center of the rash often clears or may turn bluish. Or secondary concentric rings may develop within the original ring, creating the bull’s-eye pattern. Over the next several weeks, the circular rash may grow to as large as 20 inches across.
  • Patients often describe the sensation of the rash as burning rather than itching.

Up to 20% of people infected with Lyme disease do not exhibit the rash. On dark-skinned people, the rash may resemble a bruise. In most patients, any rash fades completely after 3 – 4 weeks, although secondary rashes may appear during the later stages of disease.

FLU-LIKE SYMPTOMS

A flu-like condition is the most common sign of Lyme infection, and it can occur with or without a rash. Symptoms can last from 5 – 21 days and may include:

  • Fatigue
  • Chills and fever (100 – 103 °F)
  • Headache (usually most prominent at the back of the head)
  • Joint aches (usually in the large joints)
  • Stiff neck
  • Backache
  • Swollen glands (in the area around the tick bite or elsewhere)
  • Less often, nausea, vomiting, and sore throat occur

JOINT PAIN

Joint pain can arise at the same time as the skin rash. In early stages of Lyme disease, patients may experience migratory pain in joints, muscles, and tendons. In the later stages of the disease, arthritis may develop in one or two large joints such as the knee, elbow, or shoulder. (Knees are usually affected most.)

NEUROLOGIC SYMPTOMS

Common Neurologic Symptoms. Neurologic symptoms can first appear while the initial skin rash is still present or within 6 weeks after its disappearance. Sometimes they are the first symptoms that the patient experiences, but sometimes they may not occur until many months after the tick bite. The most common neurologic symptoms include headaches, sleep problems, and mood disturbance. Memory problems can also occur, as well as nerve damage in arms and legs. Neurologic symptoms typically improve or resolve within a few weeks or months, even in untreated patients.

Bell’s Palsy. In some patients, the facial nerve is affected, which results in Bell’s palsy. This is a sudden weakness and drooping of the facial muscles and eyelid on one side of the face. Nerves around the facial area may also cause numbness, dizziness, double vision, and hearing changes.

Symptoms of Meningitis. Meningitis can occur if the infection takes place in the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord (the meninges). This can cause:

  • Episodes of headache not relieved by over-the-counter medication
  • Mild stiff neck
  • Sensitivity to light

Symptoms of Lyme Encephalopathy. In some cases of untreated disease, the infection causes a condition called Lyme encephalopathy or neuroborreliosis . This causes the following symptoms:

  • Unexplained mood changes
  • Depression
  • Trouble concentration and remembering
  • Irritability
  • Feelings of “pins and needles” or numbness in the arms or legs

OTHER SYMPTOMS

Heart symptoms, such as an irregular heartbeat, may develop several weeks after infection, but this is not very common. In rare cases, Lyme disease may cause eye inflammation (conjunctivitis).

Multiple Sclerosis; Stored Up Rage And Resentment From Childhood and Even Past Lives

Do you know someone with MS? Did you know that they’re harbouring every childhood slight, resentment and undischarged bit of hatred and rage in their body?  They’re not properly threaded in the capacity to discharge their feelings.  Their literally a “nervous” wreck creating an abnormal hardening of the body tissue in an effort to “hang on” due to an excessive resistance to change.

Their issues are deep and karmic. The spasms and chronic inflammation are an indication of their armour‘s inability to let go. In technical terms, they’re ‘sympathetic storming’ and through Heilkunst treatment, we work to help them to let go of their stored up content and respect the parasympathetic state of wisdom and relaxation.  It isn’t easy as they’ve been postured in this gesture typically a long time.  Some have even been born in this contractive feedback loop.

Subconsciously, the MS patient has chosen to store up all that content and turn it in on themselves in a defiant act of self-martyrdom. The roots lie mostly in the Genetic Miasms Cancer, Syphilis and Lyme.  They will say things like, “I’m completely useless and worthless” for which the remedies Aurum and Lachesis will help to start lapping away at their deeper pathology.

Here’s Narayan Singh’s (aka Michael J. Lincoln) “Messages From The Body” on MS:

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (Loss of nerve endings, resulting in weakness and incoordination)
‘Wardening of the attitudes.” They are being forced to look at things they’ve never looked at

before, including past life stuff. They are having to live life for the moment, and to be crystal clear about

what they can have and what they can’t have. They have typically been highly oppressive and coercively

demanding in their pattern in past lives. They have a will of iron, and they are intensely inflexible, all of

which arises out of a generalized dread. They have taken on their situation with self-willed determination,

in a “true grit” response to the situation, leading to a “pit bull” stubbornness and to a “going down

fighting” approach. They have taken on a real mental hard-nosed and hard-headed approach. It is the

resultant of growing up in a rigidly patriarchal household.

……………………………….

“Exploitation-rage.” They feel like they have been forced to undertake hard physical work or

its equivalent in energy output against their will. They feel there is no support or assistance, and that they

have to sustain everyone all by themselves. They hate it, and they desperately want help and support.

They feel that they have exhausted themselves, and they really resent it. They feel alone and alienated,

and they are full of despair. They are in effect wreaking revenge upon those who never loved them.

Their family were exploitive and demanding, with little or no concern for their needs or welfare.

……………………………….

“Gotta take care of it myself!” They are into severe martyr-tripping, guilt-inducing and massive

control-tripping. They have a real “thing” about reforming and reforming things. They are very rigid

and moralistic, with a steel-reinforced value system and a fixed way of looking at the world and of doing

things. They are fearful that if they don’t take a personal hand in things, it will all go to hell in a bread

basket. They have a great deal of bottom line despair in response to their original severely dysfunctional

and judgmental family, in which they played the “hero(ine)-rescuer.” They were the “family hoist”,

and inflexibly disaster-deflection became their specialty.

……………………………….

“Self-straight-jacketing.” They are fearful of being free, and they are terrified of their true feelings. They are repressing their emotions, and they are therefore trapping themselves into immobilization and muscular atrophy. They are as a result unable to cope or to flow with change or to work in a co-creative and cooperative relationship with the world. They have then subsequently “selective electromagnetically” attracted and been attracted to overwhelming situations and relationships just like the original family’s scene. They therefore have a strong codependent “rescue trip” pattern which is now leading to a final denouement with regard to learning the lessons involved.

 

As mentioned in another blog, a person only has three possible outcomes when addressing a disease matrix : cure, suppression or palliation.  The bottom line is that you can work to cure it with Heilkunst Medicine or try to suppress it with drugs that cost about $15,000 – $20,000 per year.  It depends entirely on what your personal goals are as sussing out the root cause and coming to terms with the emotional and karmic aetiology is never easy, either.

First Aid Remedies For Summer

I’ve recently written about summer and its connection with the syphilis miasm, in terms of its essence of things falling apart or breaking. Accidents of all kinds can be caused by a strong inheritance of this miasm, and this makes summer the perfect time to brush up on some first aid remedies.

  • Arnica – The quintessential first aid remedy, good for shocks of all kinds, as well as physical strains and other conditions of over-exertion. Syphilis is also the doorway into the Chthonic Realm, and deeper Arnica states may be surfaced during this season, where people’s deeper, darker fears can become more active.
  • Helleborous – Another chthonic remedy also plays double-duty in the first aid jurisdiction. Helleborous is used for head injuries, particularly involving a contusion to the top of the head.
  • Natrum Sulphuricum – This is the more generic head injury remedy, and is part of the concussion formula, along with Arnica and Helleborous. Some of the more typical post-concussion depression is helped with this remedy.
  • Hypericum – For injuries involving nerve damage and/or spinal impacts. This is also a component of the head trauma formula. Any injury involving nerve-rich areas, such as crushed fingertips is very much helped with it.
  • Symphytum – This remedy is sourced from the herb comfrey, which was traditionally called ‘knit-bone’. It was well named, as it is an amazing remedy for helping a bone to heal after a break or fracture. It is so amazing, in fact, that I caution patients NOT to use it, until they have verified by x-ray if the bone has been correctly reset in the right place. It is also the remedy for black eyes, and is thus called ‘The Arnica of the eye’.
  • Aconite and Ignatia – All of the traumas, accidents, and otherwise disturbing events triggered by Syphilis will often stir up emotional reactions of anxiety, and a generalized feeling of losing control in the face of them.

Syphilis Has Arrived On The Coat-Tails of Summer

The Summer Solstice marks the day of the most daylight, as it ushers in the heart of all the things which summer means to everyone. Especially in climates in the further Northern latitudes, these precious weeks of summer sun and heat are cherished, as people pack in as much of their favourite outdoor activities that they can. Our moods reach the height of their expansive capacity, while we metabolize sunlight to be stored as vitamin D to take us through the winter.

There is an underbelly to all of this, which is represented within the essence of the syphilis miasm, which is also ushered into more acute expression, beginning about the time of the Solstice. If you think in terms of the cycle of gardening season, the massive growth of the spring has already peaked, and the hot, dry days of summer now threaten the possibility of drought, decay, and death. Likewise, people within the “concrete jungle” of the city can start to express high levels of irritability, and lashing out even to the point of “road rage” or other random acts of violence. If you keep this image in mind, you’ll begin to understand the inner dynamics of anyone with a genetic inheritance of this miasm (which we all have to some degree).

Destruction, decay, and processes of things breaking down or falling apart all describe the essential characteristics of this miasm at all levels (physical, mental, emotional). Physical conditions including any form of auto-immune disorder, as well as psychological conditions of depression, despair, even to the point of suicide fill out some of the details. The emotional acts of blaming and criticizing are further indicators of this energy. A feeling that life is meaningless, and that “there is no point” form part of the more extreme version of this mental and emotional state. The expression “Life’s a bitch, and then you die” portrays the sentiment of this feeling.

In less extreme form, you’ll see peculiar symptoms, such as ritualistic or compulsive behaviours, or even fleeting thoughts of doing strange things, such as wondering “what would happen if I put my fingers into the electrical socket?” Compulsive thoughts such as “I wonder if I left the stove on at home?” can fill the mind of the patient driven by the energy of this disease. Insanity is feared, or may eventually be succumbed to.

In its earlier phases, syphilis can be quite charming, and capable of drawing others into their world. In more extreme forms, this is part of the pattern of the formation of cults around charismatic leaders, who gradually lead them to do either strange or very destructive acts, including mass suicide. On an individual basis, this same dynamic within syphilis, is behind all forms of addictions, and other self-destructive behaviours which at some level involve forms of self-deception or charming oneself into being OK with “just one more”.

Physical symptoms of syphilis include ulceration in any form. Deep conditions down to the bone, such as extreme growing pains in children, bone cancers, or leukemia emerge at the later phases of this disease. Flesh-eating disease, AIDS, and other physical manifestations of the self-destructive pattern of this remedy are increasing, as syphilis becomes a more and more dominant medical phenomenon in our modern context. Years of use of antibiotics, and such, have suppressed the primary infectious form of syphilis, and converted it into this inheritable genetic form I’m describing here. There are many artistic portrayals of this energy, including the brilliantly acted role of The Joker in Batman – The Dark Knight, which I wrote about in my blog series on fluoride.
