So good to be communicating with you all today.
This Special Bits comes to you in 2 parts, this being the first one. (Part 2 sent also today,
but separately.) I have been planning to send out this information for half a year but always
had something else of importance to share with you. But because of the diagnosis that
was brought to me yesterday, now is the perfect time.
Sometime in 1993 or 1994 I was bitten by something that created a small red ring on the inside of my left knee. I mentioned to my husband that I thought it was ringworm. During this period I had at least one tick taken off the back of my earlobe. Sometime soon after, I noticed a bumpy red rash under my left rib (spleen area). It was a roundish oval shape, and itched slightly. A few days later it itched alot and when I'd itch the rash area it hurt, and would weep. After a couple of weeks I felt flu-like, including a slight fever symptoms. The rash and symptoms lasted about a month. Then it was completely gone-- no scarring. I just thought it must have been my first outbreak of poison oak (though never before or since have I had poison oak--even though I've unknowingly walked through it as well as handled it).
On December 31, 1994 I had a series of symptoms that changed my life. I was at home, peacefully getting ready for the new year when I began to shake violently, felt a sensation of energy traveling from my lower body, including legs, up through my torso and into my head. I noticed an ache associated with the movement that began at the upper intestine on the left, through the spleen/stomach area, through the middle chest area including the heart, then to the back of the neck on the left and into the head. I felt taken over. My body was sweating, and I had diarrhea as well as vomiting. And, my heart was racing and pounding. It was absolutely terrifying, as I had never known anything close to this in my 46 or so years.
The doctor friend we called over to check me concluded that it was an anxiety attack---I
knew even then that it was not. But the symptoms had subsided, and that was the only
explanation he had (and over the years a typical one for lyme's sufferer's to hear).
The next month this set of symptoms began again in my lower body (I was enjoying a
glass of wine in a calm beach vacation setting). I was scared to have this happen again,
so laid down and breathed deeply and slowly. I felt the upward moving energy, along with
the slight ache in my intestines, spleen/stomach, middle chest and neck---all on the right
side. No sweating or fluids evacuated, but still disturbing. After that I was fairly vigilant,
observing the signs in my body, trying to avert a recurrence. Though occurring infrequently,my body felt different---as if something was always disturbed. And this symptom pattern (episode) has continued to this day.
I tried numerous supplements,healing modalities, and diets from thenuntil now---almost
20 years of searching for an answer...for a cure. Many things helped for short periods of
time, usually not more than a month, but I would each time be lulled into a sense of
"this is it", only to soon remember that I still ached up my left side, or that my head felt
"wonky"-- not quite attached to my head--, or that my heart pounded even when I was still,
and that most difficult I was not able to truly relax because my body felt like it was vibrating.
(Sleep was difficult, mostly interrupted and not enough---really until the last 2 months when I
finally stopped eating corn products, which seem to be an allergen. )
Over the years I have had many episodes that felt like a stroke. Many times I thought my
heart would pound out of my chest. Many times I could not imagine going on with all the weird
symptoms I daily experienced. (Listening to stories from others with lymes, I hear similar
scenarios from each one.)
In 2000 my body basically shut down--the symptoms were so extreme I can't believe now
that I had them. As I had mercury taken out of my teeth over the next 4 years, symptoms
became more tolerable. (It is said that lyme spirochetal bacteria and mercury co-exist well
together, and create all sorts of havoc for the host body. This was definitely true in my case.)
Since 2004 I've had varying levels of bodily disturbance, but the common thread was that
there always was, and is disturbance.
Recently I went to a new doctor to get the twice yearly blood tests I'vedone for 2 years.
After listening to my symptoms, he asked if I'd ever been tested for Lymes because he had it,
and some of my symptoms, including the heart pounding, he had experienced. So I had the
tests, and the diagnosis I referred to in the first paragraph is Lyme's disease. I had 2 tests,
one general and if it comes back negative or inconclusive, you are re-tested. The other one
is more advanced, and notices something relative to white blood cells and that test came
back conclusively positive. So last night, even though I've suspected this for at least 10 years,
was overwhelmed with dread and fear, but also a need to confront it head on. So I spent 3
hours watching two documentaries on Lyme's and was overwhelmed by the treatment choices
I had to make---iv antibiotics---maybe for years, other drugs?, numerous supplements.....
One person's husband estimated she took over 60,000 in a 3 year period!
This morning I woke and read the Lyme's information I send you below, and in the 2nd Bits
you will also receive today. I had found this month's ago and it was nectar to my soul. In the
middle of reading it, I knew what I would do. Raindrops twice a week, Inner Defense and
Longevity daily, NingXia Red, the "Lyme Bullets" (recipe in Bits, Pt2), and Rife machine
treatments (also described in Bits, Pt2), also used by my doctor, after extreme antibiotic
therapy for several years failed.
I feel very rested in what I have to do, how I will do it and that it will be successful. For the
first time in 20 years I see an end to this nightmare! I am so grateful for Young Living essential
oils and Gary Young who formulates awesome healing blends!
ps. There are many more testimonials of Lyme's being reversed and/or symptoms managed
with YLEO's and I will share this over the next month's. I will also keep you informed of my
pss. I am sure that using Young Living essential oils since I first discovered them in 1996,
saved me from a much worse fate, helping to continuously "thin", and/or keep in check the
"lymes" populating my internal environment.

4 essential oils that fight lymes:
susan's note: One of the oils happens to be my favorite essential oil---Bergamot!
What Helped Me - Pam Carpenter, YL distributor
For me, the key to an improved, happy life is essential oils, rather than pharmaceuticals. Pills did not help.
Oils heal at the cellular level where Lyme disease lives. They don't just mask symptoms.
Following is a description of the oils that helped me. If you are unfamiliar with oils, they can be applied to the skin, taken in capsule form or inhaled.
This is the natural antibiotic treatment I used to eradicate the spirochetes and the co-infections.
DO NOT MAKE THESES CAPSULES AHEAD OF TIME THEY WILL DISSOLVE
(In an “OO” Clear vegetable capsule)
2- drops of Frankincense
6- drops of Oregano
12- drops of Thieves
Ingest 1 capsule every 4hrs for 3 days
Then every 8 hrs for 4 days
Then every 12 for 5 days
Then once a day for 6 days
WHEN TAKING ANTIBIOTIC’S IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO DRINK LOTS OF WATER. YOU NEED TO BE URINATING EVERY HOUR OR SO. THE OILS ARE DEHYDRATING AND DETOXIFING. IF THE TOXINS DON’T LEAVE THE BODY, THEY'RE JUST MOVING TO A NEW LOCATION IN YOUR BODY. (THIS WILL MAKE YOU FEEL SICK)
YOU WILL NEED TO PURCHASE
Through “YOUNG LIVING ESSENTIAL OILS” Therapeutic Grade Oils
1 -15ml bottle of Frankincense
1 -15ml bottle of Oregano
2 – 15ml bottles of Thieves
1 – Clear vegetable capsules
Give your body a 4 week rest after the two week treatment- The oils will continue to work.
Repeating only if/when symptoms return. Listen to your body.
If you have stomach upset spilt your capsules, (make 2 capsules) PUT IN EACH CAPSULE ( 1 drop Frankincense, 3 drops Oregano, 6 drops of Thieves fill the rest of the capsule with V6 oil or olive oil.)
Suggestions for supplements: Life 5, Essentialzmes-4, Inner Defense
****Important difference between the actions of oils and antibiotics is their intelligence. A true therapeutic grade essential oil is smart. It can tell the bad guys from the good ones. Our bodies function normally and in health with the help of millions of friendly bacteria that live in our intestines and elsewhere in our bodies.
Antibiotics kill off everything indiscriminantly, unable to tell one bacteria from another. They are microscopic killing machines, programmed to seek out bacteria without discrimination. In other words, they are brainless robots. They are made by fallible men. Aromatic oils know the difference between the bacteria we need and the hostile invaders. They kill off only the invaders, leaving the friendly flora intact. They are made by or infallible God and imbued with his benevolent intelligence.
When we use antibiotics to overcome a bacterial infection, we are left in a weakened state. Our immune systems have been compromised. Until we can re-establish a new culture of friendly bacteria in our bodies, we are more susceptible to the next illness that comes along.
When we use oils to fight bad bacteria, our systems come out stronger. Our immune systems have been strengthened. Our beneficial bacteria have been left untouched. We are better able to deal with the next barrage of disease-causing germs that may appear.

AFTER YOU ARE DONE WITH THE ANTIBIOTIC TREATMENT
Choose a Cleansing program
Cleansing and the commitment you make to it is a personal choice. You have to decide what program you want and then discipline yourself to accomplish what you desire. Evan drinking enough water takes discipline.
However, the reward is worth the denial of food and the pleasure of eating. You cannot put a price on your health, because the price of not having good health is too high. You simply have to plan your protocol, get started, and stay with it. Those are your only requirements.
I choose the Master Cleanse and had great results. This book “Healing for the age of Enlightenment” by Stanley Burroughs is available at www.raindroptraining.com.
The Importance of Cleansing
As the human body ages, there is a greater buildup of chemical contamination in our tissues. As toxins accumulate, the body is more likely to suffer the energy robbing effects of poor health and degenerative diseases.
This is why cleaning the body is so important. When the body is purging itself of heavy metal contamination, undigested foods, and internal pollution, it relieves enormous stress on the organs and tissues, immune function is enhanced, and the stress on the liver is reduced.
Cleaning helps with weight reduction and brings back the creative, motivation, and vitality that are especially healing when suffering from degenerative disease. also information on all cleanses and protocols are found in the book “Essential Oils desk reference”. Life science publishing.

THE NINGXIA WOLFBERRY (Lycium barbarum L)
The Super Food
The wolfberry (called Goji by native Chinese) is known throughout China and is regarded as a national treasure. The species that is grown in the northern NingXia territory is unique for its medicinal, therapeutic and healing properties. The “people of longevity” in Inner Mongolia, in the mineral-rich, super-fertile and isolated plateau of the Yellow River have used it as a dietary staple for thousands of years. This organic land receives Himalayan mountain water. It is this berry that is given the “green certificate” of organic quality. It also carries the unique feature of a w-chain polysaccharide (protein-sugar). Studies over the last 15 years have documented the cardio-protective, anti-cancerous and immune-stimulating properties of the NingXia wolfberry. The NingXia wolfberry has the presence of chromium, which increases the glucose uptake of cells, so the “sugar” of this berry is not damaging and it actually has the lowest glycemic indexes of any food known. Code #630 (dried NingXia wolfberries)
SOME OF THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF THE NINGXIA WOLFBERRY
~ is one of the strongest known whole-food antioxidants and is seen in research studies as a powerful intervention to combat accelerated aging and age-related, degenerative illness, including Alzheimer’s and dementia
~ has 18 amino acids (6X higher than bee pollen), 6 essential fatty acids, vitamins B1, B2, B6, C and E, 21 trace minerals and fiber. B1 is essential for energy production, carbohydrate metabolism and thyroid function
~ has the highest known source of whole food potassium: a balance of potassium is linked to healthy blood pressure, maintaining good blood sugar levels, supporting the endocrine system, and reduced signs of aging. Vitamins cannot be assimilated without the air of minerals.
~ has antioxidants which permeate cell walls and attack free radicals before they damage DNA cell nucleus (this means strengthening to the immune system)
~ has a broad spectrum of carotenoids and the highest presence of ellagic acid in a food, both of which detoxify and stimulate anti-carcinogenic activity
~ has zeaxanthin and lutein, carotenoids to protect eye tissue
~ has nutrients to protect the liver and to help it detoxify
~ has the lowest glycemic indexes of any food: important for minimizing the degenerative damage to heart, kidneys, pancreas, and circulatory system caused by long-term elevated blood sugar levels.
THIS IS A NATURAL FOOD FOR: increasing energy, a strengthened immune system, cleansing and repairing the liver, lowering blood pressure, decreasing LDL cholesterol, decreasing inflammation of blood vessels, reducing risk of heart disease, protecting vision and eye function, sustaining skin and decreasing skin cancers, lowering blood sugar and improving conditions related to diabetes, achieving weight loss, bringing about an emotional lift, and generally protecting against common toxins.
BRING ON THE JUICE – NINGXIA RED:
Made with the puree of the NingXia wolfberries, more natural antioxidant foods of Blueberry juice for the whole body, pomegranate juice, for the circulatory system, apricot juice, raspberry juice, organic agave nectar, and dark grape see, skin and stem.

hi oily folks
lyme is a very smart bacteria and hides in the body taking on characteristics of the organ system it finds most hospitable.
most of my raindrop clients are lyme sufferers.
i add fennel essential oil to the raindrop-basically all over the back as fennel pulls toxins from the tissues and it does make a difference.
Hi Antoinette and fellow Oilers,
As someone who has had Lyme Disease for a long, long time, I feel compelled to respond to this message urgently. It is critically important that this person go all out aggressive against Lyme, as this bug is one of the oldest and most intelligent microbes on the planet. Borrelia bergdorferi, the spirochete bacteria that causes Lyme, has more ways than you can count to evade and escape being killed by the immune system and also by regular antibiotics.
Furthermore, tests are woefully inadequate and only look for 1 of the known 300 strains of this bacteria. And the tests look for immune system activation (antibodies) against the Lyme bacteria, which takes about 4-6 weeks to be generated in numbers sufficiently to be detected on a test. I could go on and on...
And finally, ticks are known as "nature's dirty needle" because they carry many, many pathogens, not just Lyme bacteria. Fungi, parasites, viruses, and many other bacteria are known to be carried - and transmitted - by ticks.
So here's what I would do if I were just bitten by a tick:
Inner Defense - to build my immune system up and also help directly destroy the microbes.
Young Living's Parasite Protocol - to eliminate any parasites that may have hitched a ride into my body from the tick bite.
Rotate through various different oils and the following mentioned herbal products:
Apply on the rash and on the feet daily, and diffuse Thieves, Purification and any other oil I could get my hands on that I know kills a broad spectrum of bacteria, viruses, and fungus.
Clove oil - taken internally, it kills parasites & parasite eggs, bartonella (another bacteria carried by ticks), and many other microbes.
Garlic - eaten raw - every day. It has a lot of excellent activity for supporting the immune system and killing micro-organisms & parasites.
Grapefruit Seed Extract...breaks down biofilm and has antibacterial, antifungal & antiviral properties. May also go after parasites, I'm not sure.
I would also do all of the following daily:
Detoxzyme between meals, to digest the dead parasites & bacteria and help eliminate other sources of toxic stress in the body.
OmegaGize - to reduce inflammation and support healthy immunity.
Life 5 at bedtime - 70% of the immune system is in the gut, and probiotics are a huge part of that.
Avoid sugar, corn syrup, gluten grains (wheat, rye, barley, oats, spelt), dairy, soy, corn, GMO foods, artificial ingredients and additives, processed foods. Eat whole, fresh fruits & veggies, beans, nuts/seeds, and organic native-diet meats only.
Also eat organic herbs & spices frequently (daily) such as oregano, thyme, mint, etc. - these herbs (and probably also the essential oils from these herbs) interfere with the microbes' ability to establish biofilm communities and resist being eliminated by the immune system (i.e., the herbs disrupt quorum sensing).
Make sure to get sufficient sleep every night. This helps the immune system. If necessary, use Tranquil (roll-on), Sleep-Ease, Peace & Calming, or anything else that helps one get sufficient sleep.
Dry skin brushing, Epsom Salt bath soaks, drinking sufficient water, and mild to moderate exercise all help support detoxification of the body. The Lyme bacteria (and all the other bugs that may have come along with it) are known to generate huge amounts of toxins, so it is important to help the body get rid of these toxins before they can cause damage to nerves, joints and connective tissue.
Vitamin D is also needed to support the immune system. Macrophages (which engulf and digest bacteria) cannot function adequately when Vitamin D is low.
Vitamin C and A, and Zinc are also needed to support the immune system.
Magnesium helps support detoxing, and is needed for over 300 enzymes in the body - including enzymes that aid with detoxing.
NingXia Red daily - probably 2-3 ozs...for the antioxidant, anti-inflammatory & blood-thinning benefits. Lyme/coinfections tend to thicken the blood and promote oxidative damage.
Comprehensive multivitamin/multimineral (like YL’s Life 5) - because most food is lacking due to years of intensive farming practices and incomplete fertilizer application to food crops (most fertilizer only contains 3 elements - Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium; many more minerals are needed for plants to produce food that is nutritious in a wide range of nutrients...).
In short, I would declare war on the microbes and do everything I could possibly do to get rid of them. Chronic Lyme/coinfections is something you do not want to deal with...the longer the infection goes unchecked, the more difficult it is to eliminate.
