Thanks for the complete run-down on the origins of this test-tube baby.
All I know is that I got it from a flat beige colored tick, known throughout Mexico as an araganset (sp?) tick. That's weird because it looked more like a flat, soft-shell crab than a good-old Arkansas brown striped spider. (So, I blame Bush and then Clinton/Gore!)
I concluded that this is not really a pathogen, otherwise 'Allicin' alone could have cut it's wiggly little heads off. It seems to be a neurotoxin, as in something that operates via the micoplasm, indistinguishable from an enzime as it passes through all cells.
My whole leg was numb, no fever, no welt from the bite itself.
Although it had festered and began to manifest as a rash, It simply took me 4tbs. , twice daily, of 'SuperSilver' to cure this bug in 10-13 days. I will never go without this magic solution on hand. I truly believe that it would be a miracle cure for a mangey dog, where nothing else works at all. Even e'Coli, -gone!
