MMS and doctors who can't even practice what they learned in school...
- Name: Russ Davenport
I just sent $10 [to the US~Observer MMS Defense Fund] and I'm not a rich person, but an organic farmer in Kansas. We are a small oasis surrounded by "Round-up" and have natural crops where thousands of birds and bees hang-out regularly on our one acre farm. I can also assure you I write about one letter like this every ten years. I've worked for a federal agency (and I'm proud of the work done there) and I'm the son of a private land owner (also proud of that work). IN BOTH cases though, we working citizens with educations and aspirations are always getting screwed over by someone "in Washington or on Wall Street" (a.k.a. big business).
In Feb 2011, I contracted what is likely to be Lyme Disease and after having correlated symptoms (and wasting a few thousand dollars on THREE doctors in two states), I found myself in a "haze" where my vision was suddenly going fast AND Tinnitus occurred in my left ear OVERNIGHT. The left side of my head then had (and to this day still has) "something" attacking it as I also had blurred vision, a pain deep in the center of the left eye, and daily discharges of heavy amounts of thick, disgusting phlegm. Even after biking 100 miles a week (rock steady for two months) the phlegm (to this day) occurs first thing EVERY morning when I awake and sometimes throughout the day.
"Neural Lyme" is the best guess but my Blue Cross insurance can't help me due to the ancient test they go by AND they won't allow NEW tests that are 98% (Vs. 40%) accurate to be run-- why? Nobody knows how to fix healthcare, but we do know WHY it's broken: "big oligopolies working for an oligarchy of the few," and this is even mentioned by a former WTO economist (among others one might hear speaking at TED). A good friend (and MD) I hunt with says, "we really are great at 'preventative' and 'emergency' medicine in the USA- BUT we suck in the middle." I also should add than he is a surgeon who doesn't HAVE to work "in the middle" (and he is glad for that fact). He is scared for his children and being a kid off the ranch, like me, he himself doesn't have a plan for his children WHEN they get bitten by that tick.
After all else was tried, money and jet fuel were wasted, and frustrations were hitting peak levels in my life-- a friend of my mother's mandated I try MMS as she had used it for HER Lyme for years and controlled it ever since while hoping one day for a cure she still can not find after many years of (like all of us) waiting. But she was happy and said that when using the MMS correctly, she was very little effected by her Lyme. So I did order and try it-- that was 19 months ago and I CAN say it works pretty good. I still have the phlegm hack (no matter how hard I work out) and the tinnitus is often still there but slight WHEN I use MMS regularly. This last Spring I ran out of the MMS product I purchased (from one of the "approved" sellers) and had to go three weeks without it. I thought that maybe whatever I had been "killing off" might be finally gone-- but it was not and it returned with a vengeance. I found myself back to that starting point where my head rang like a jet was right outside my back door; my eye was full of puss in the mornings, the shooting pains came back; and I generally felt as I had over a year prior before I started using this stuff.
