North Texas Lyme would like to thank Dr. Hamel for speaking with us on July 20 at Harris Methodist. There is always so much to learn, and new findings are found all the time. We appreciate your willingness to share all of what you have learned on your quest to help all of your patients with autoimmune issues.
Thanks to Wendi Kai for coming out on a Saturday morning to work with us and show us how journaling is more than just putting pen to paper, but can be an expression of arts through quotes, poetry, encouraging words, painting, creating collages, drawing, and more. I have tried to keep a journal for years, but never followed through with it because of mind block–just didn’t know what to write. Expelling your feelings into a journal, no matter how you do it, allows you to release emotions that you tend to keep inside and not let surface. Emotions play a major role in our healing. Negative feelings dwelling inside can keep our healing at bay as we struggle with the doubts, frustration, anger, hurt, and other feelings that go along with chronic illness. Don’t hold yourself to journaling everyday, unless you would wish to, but journal when you feel inspired to do so. I challenge you to start journaling as part of your protocol for healing. I bought one today at Hobby Lobby for $7.00!
“We are studying Lyme disease in Texas, and we are very interested in putting numbers to things we all know but no body has studied yet. When and when you get infected. Was it your backyard, a park? Were you hunting? Hiking? Just having fun with your family? Please let us know, as well as the period of the year in which that happened.
Please find attach a couple of information sheets so you are well informed before taking the survey. You can quit at any time if you feel uncomfortable doing this. The survey won’t take more than 5 minutes.”
Thanks so much for your contribution to sciences.

Brooke Landau, Emmy Award Winning Weathercaster with the CW Network in San Diego, will appear on the Dr. Phil Show on Friday, April 13th. Brooke shares her 17 battle with Lyme Disease. One which some doctors have called, the worst documented case in the country. Brooke went to bed fine one day and woke up paralyzed. She overcame that battle and today she continues to fight and survive. Brooke’s survival story has been featured on the Today Show, Good Morning America, Fox News, ABC, Discovery Health, Mystery ER, CW Network…and now the Dr. Phil Show. Brooke says she continues to speak out for those you can’t. LLMD, Dr. Chitra Bhakta will also be on the show.

We had many new faces Saturday. We are always thrilled to have both new and old participants join us, as this group would not continue without you. Our group continues to grow in numbers. We have 90+ individuals on our members list. Please consider making this a priority every month. You are important to our group.
One of our NTX Lyme Group members recently posted an article on ” Intrepreting Lyme Disease Blood Tests”. If you are like me…the bands… “+’s”… “++’s”… “41”… “37”…”83″…etc. just makes my head spin. How do they determine that I have Lyme based on these numbers and symbols.
The Lyme Disease Association of Australia posted this very informative article on this topic. Take a look.
