and tick removal!

My story in the national newspapers 2017 which then went global!

Hello folks,

To cut a very long story very short, I have had Lyme disease almost 20 years.  I have been extremely ill, to the point of being bedridden and thinking the end was nigh!  It's been awful.

I tried finding treatment on the NHS and then privately, both to no avail. Realising there was no help for me out there, I took matters into my own hands with regards to educating myself and others on sucessful tick removal and Lyme disease treatment.

After much research I started treating myself holistically and I haven't looked back.  And, also I have discovered, what I believe to be the safest form of tick removal, hense The TickTool which I am offering here on this website.

From being bedridden to having a full and active life again within a few short years has given me hope for a bright and healthy future. I want to share the hope, and due to popular demand I'm more than happy to share the details of my road to recovery with anyone who wants to know.

My head is swimming with information on the subject of Lyme disease nowadays and I have to share it, another reason for this website and a YouTube vlog to follow shortly.

I have sufferers contacting me on a daily basis from all over the world asking me how I got better, after seeing my various national and international  press articles.

I don't believe there's a one-size-fits-all treatment due to the nature of the illness, but from the information I have gathered from chatting to hundreds of Lyme sufferers, most could do with starting the road to recovery via boosting the immune system, boosting the healthy gut bacteria and combating fatigue.

The other issue is the "Jarisch Herxheimer reaction", more commonly known as a "herx", which occurs approximately once a month to most sufferers. This reaction is caused when a certain amount of the bacteria (aka spirochetes) die off naturally.  This process makes us feel unwell and this is why we need to liver detox and help our body in the illimination of these harmful toxins. 

This site is not intended to provide diagnosis, treatment or medical advice, merely options for those who are completely fed up of living the Lyme life... as I was, and at the time had NO CLUE WHATSOEVER where to turn or who to ask for any kind of help and support.  It was a horrible place to be and still is for thousands of you out there.  I completely understand.

Any questions please just ask and happy reading.

Frightening Lyme disease facts:

1 in every 29 ticks in the UK carries Lyme disease. 

Lyme disease is a potentially deadly bacteria caused by a tick bite.

A bullseye rash is indicative of Lyme disease. You have the rash, you have the disease.

Not everyone gets the rash, I didn't.

Lyme disease  is estimated to be the first worldwide epidemic of climate change by 2028.

Lyme disease is estimated to be a bigger epidemic than HIV.

Contrary to popular belief, Lyme disease is very common, it's just more common for it to be mis-diagnosed... Could you be living with it?

If caught early enough Lyme disease can be treated successfully with antibiotics by the NHS!

If not caught early enough Lyme disease turns into chronic Lyme disease and is not treated by the NHS.

There is NO known CURE for chronic Lyme disease worldwide.

Chronic Lyme disease CANNOT be cured full stop! It is with you for the rest of your life! It can be managed and quite successfully sometimes, although not always.

The NHS do NOT provide any medical assistance what-so-ever for chronic Lyme disease sufferers yet. This is something we chronic Lyme sufferers are trying to change.

It is estimated that there could be as many as 50,000 new cases of Lyme disease in this country each year. However, with the UK's inadequate testing system only 3,000 cases are being correctly diagnosed. The problem is Lyme disease can also be mistaken for other serious illnesses like Althzeimers, MS, fibromyalgia, ME, chronic fatigue syndrome, Parkinsons and more than 350 other diseases.

A bite from a tick can be mistaken for many debilitating and often permanent disabilities even death?

Diseased carrying ticks are everywhere now and are having regular nibbles on us and our pets. Sometimes they can be so tiny that they go completely undetected.

Becoming flu like a few days after a bite is quite normal but will to most of us indicate that we have simply caught a virus and that we’ll soon be well.  We simply won’t connect the sudden bout of illness to a tick bite... I mean, why would we? The problem is that we may now be suffering from a bacterial infection from that bite that we may or may not have spotted somewhere on our body. Bit of a nightmare situation could be developing here!

So, what happens next you may ask? We have a virus, or so we think and we'll get better but, not so my friends.  If we were infected with Lyme disease the bacteria is now in our bloodstream and at this point and only this point can we be cured!!! Antibiotcs are now or never! I'm not trying to scare you, just stating facts.

Lyme disease cannot be cured once the bacteria have taken up residence in our organs, our cells and our tissues.  Antibiotics will not touch them there! They will live within the confines of our bodies for the rest of our  lives and will most likely reep havoc with our immune systems and cause  untold misery and ill health, possibly even death within the next few years. How do I know? Because I’ve lived through this nightmare and I need to share ny new found knowledge and hopefully offer some hope to fellow sufferers and their families.

So what exactly is Lyme disease?

Lyme disease is a potentially deadly bacteria called Borrelia Burgdorferi which is transmitted to humans by a tick bite.

Once in our systems, the bacteria can affect the whole body.

If treated early enough, Lyme disease can sometimes be cured with a 3 - 12 weeks course of antibiotics, however, if left undiagnosed (as I was for 14 years) or untreated there is NO CURE and very little treatment available.

Untreated or undiagnosed Lyme is known as chronic Lyme disease or Late Stage Lyme disease.

I have been a chronic Lyme sufferer now since 2001. People like me usually become their own guinea pigs and/or seek private medical help/treatment (often abroad).

There is NO TREATMENT what-so-ever available on the NHS for chronic Lyme disease.

Life can be unbareable living with the condition and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
