Question: Hi, IM IN THE LATE STAGES OF 5 DIFFERENT TYPES OF LYME(BORELLIA) DISEASE AND MULTIPLE CO-INFECTIONS...TWO OF WHICH HAVE HAD TO BE REPORTED TO COUNTY AND CDC AS THEY WARRANT SAID ATTENTION AND WERE THOUGHT TO HAVE BEEN ERADICATED IN XXXX YEARS AGO. SPECIFICALLY, BRUCELLOSIS AND ROCKY MOUNTAIN SPOTTED FEVER. (ALSO, HUMAN PARVOVIRUS, EPSTEIN BARR VIRUS, MRSA, MYCOPLASMIC PNEUMONIAE, CHLAMYDIA PNEUMONIAE,COXSACKIE, SEVERE MOLD TOXICITY AND HEAVY METAL POISONING, ETC AFTER SEARCHING FOR A LITERATE DR FOR ALMOST TWENTY YEARS, I FOUND A WONDERFUL DR THAT ORDERED THE DIAGNOSTIC LABS I NEEDED. I HAVE BEEN,AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE, TREATED WITH A MULTITUDE OF SUPPLEMENTS AND ANTIBIOTICS AND AM HOPEFULLY, NOT A CONTAGIOUS WALKING BIO HAZARDS ANYMORE, UNFORTUNATELY, THE LYME REMAINS CHRONIC AND ALWAYS WILL BE, THOUGH THE BRUCELLA COUNTS ARE COMING DOWN. i WAS HOSPITALIZED TWO YEARS AGO FOR SEVERE ANEMIA AND INFLAMMATION OF BLOOD CELLS DUE TO THE MYRIAD OF CONDITIONS, INTRA CELLULAR PARASITES AND SUCH AND HAD ONLY 3.8 COUNT OF HEMOGLOBIN. I HAD FIVE TRANSFUSIONS (THIS IS WHERE I CONTRACTED THE MRSA) WHICH SAVED MY LIFE, THOUGH I CONTINUE TO BE SOMEWHAT ANEMIC AND REALLY MUST ADHERE TO A RITUAL OF IRON SUPPLEMENTATION. I WAS ALSO VERY LOW IN POTASSIUM. MY DR WANTS ME TO TAKE AN ORAL VARIETY OF IRON RATHER THAN IN TABLET FORM AND ALTHOUGH IM NOT A SQUEAMISH PERSON IN THE LEAST, THE TASTE AND SMELL OF THE LIQUID IRON (IT REMINDS ME OF DIRTY, METALLIC BLOOD...WITH THE SIGHT, SMELL, AND SUCH OF MY OWN UNHEALTHY BLOOD WHICH REMAINS VERY METALLIC, STRONG SMELLING, AND CHOKED WITH BIOFILM. IT''S JUST TOO CLOSE A RESEMBLANCE AND IT AFFECTS ME MENTALLY AS ONE TRIGGERS THE MEMORY OF THE OTHER, ETC. VERY UNPLEASANT,) IS SO OFF PUTTING TO ME, THAT I CONFESS, I'VE UNINTENTIONALLY STOPPED TAKING IT AND NOW IM BECOMING SHORT OF BREATH AGAIN WHICH IF MEMORY SERVES ME, IS IN MY CASE,, RELATED TO A LACK OF OXYGEN CARRYING RBCS
MY INQUIRIES TODAY INVOLVE BASIC VITAMIN AND MINERAL SUBJECT MATTER-
. IM WRITING THIS TO GET THE OPINION OF A GENERAL DR BASE WHO IS NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED IN MY SITUATION AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THERE EXISTS IN TABLET FORM, A FORM OF IRON I CAN BUY THAT IS AS STRONG AND EFFECTIVE AS THE LIQUID VARIETY? i WILL OF COURSE BE FOLLOWING UP WITH MY DR, IN THE FUTURE BUT AS MY FATHER JUST DIED AND IM TOTALLY SWAMPED WITH HIS AFFAIRS AND THE ENORMITY OF THE SITUATION, IVE FALLEN BEHIND WITH ALL THINGS RELEVANT TO MY HEALTH REGIME. I ONLY HAVE MINUTES A DAY FOR THE TIME BEING, TO ATTEND TO MY OWN CONFLICTS OR ISSUES UNTIL THE NECESSARY PROCEDURES AND BUSINESS REGARDING MY DAD'S ESTATE, SERVICES, AND ALL OTHER MATTERS ARE BROUGHT TO COMPLETION. ADDITIONALLY, CAN YOU RECOMMEND A GOOD, HI POTENCY B VITAMIN (THERE ARE SO MANY TYPES OF B OUT THERE, IM SUPPOSED TO BE TAKING ONE THOUGH I CANT RECALL WHAT COMPLEX IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE). ALSO, IS POTASSIUM DEFICIENCY A THING THAT GOES HAND IN HAND WITH ANEMIA AND SINCE IT WAS THE CASE FOR ME BEFORE, SHOULD I BE TAKING A POTASSIUM SUPPLEMENT? I NEED TO GET SOME MORE CURRENT BLOOD WORK DONE OBVIOUSLY FOR A CBC AND METABOLIC PANEL RECHECK, BUT IM JUST WONDERING IF POTASSIUM CAN HURT YOU AS A GENERAL SUPPLEMENT?
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME...THESE RESISTANT ILLNESSES HAVE AND WILL CONTINUE TO ERUPT AND OVERWHELM THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY FROM HERE ON OUT, UNFORTUNATELY...THE RESULT OF ADAPTATION, ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE, GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOOD, PATHOGENS, ETC, POLLUTION, OVERPOPULATION, AND SO FORTH...IT IS WHAT IT IS. PEOPLE WITH RH NEGATIVE BLOOD LACK A PROTEIN THAT ALLOWS THEM TO COMBAT SAID FACTORS EFFECTIVELY AND MERCIFULLY, THIS DISCREPANCY HAS FINALLY BEEN ANALYZED AND DOCUMENTED. STILL, WE REMAIN THE IMMUNE CHALLENGED DEMOGRAPHIC AND CAN REALLY ONLY PROCEED WITH WHAT'S IN PLACE PRESENTLY, WHICH IS FOR THE MOST PART, JUST SUPPORTIVE THERAPY AND NUTRITION.
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IN THIS MATTER AND YOUR TIME. I TYPE IN ALL CAPS AS MY VISION HAS BEEN ADVERSELY AFFECTED BY MY CONDITION(S), SO APOLOGIES FOR THAT.
VERY TRULY YOURS, XXXX



SORRY FOR THE GRAPHIC PICS, I JUST WANT TO COMMUNICATE THE SEVERITY OF THIS..I HAVE HAD MY LIFE STOLEN FROM ME. BEEN MISTREATED, MISDIAGNOSED, AND INCORRECTLY LABELED BY DRS, FAMILY, AND A GENERAL POPULOUS RIDDEN BY IGNORANCE AS UNTIL RECENTLY,THE COVER UPS AND LACK OF PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE WERE HELD FIRMLY IN PLACE BY SOURCES MORE POWERFUL AND DUPLICITOUS THAN I WOULD HAVE EVER IMAGINED...NOW AN AVALANCHE OF INFORMATION AND CITED FACT ARE AVAILABLE...THE TRUTH IS A POWERFUL, NEVER CHANGING ENTITY. I HOPE THIS INTERACTION, EVEN IF IT BE A ONE TIME OCCURENCE, WILL ENLIGHTEN YOU AS TO WHAT'S GOING ON IN EVERY CONTINENT IN THE WORLD, SAVE XXXX..THE 90S BROUGHT ABOUT SOME TERRIBLE CHANGE...SCIENCE IS AMAZING, BUT WHEN IT GOES AWRY...WELL. LEFT TO OUR OWN DEVICES, MAN WILL DESTROY THE EARTH AND ALL CARBON BASED LIFE AND IT'S ELEMENTAL PRESENCES EVENTUALLY...ANY DR WHO HAS THE CONTENT OF CHARACTER AND BACKBONE TO STAND UP TO THE GAG ORDERS AND OLD SCHOOL MIND SETS OF WESTERN MEDICINE, IS A HERO AND A SAINT. THESE THINGS ARE REAL, THEY ARE HORRIFIC, THEY ARE GAINING IN SPEED AND SEVERITY. I AM AMONG ONE OF TWO PEOPLE IN XXXX TO FINALLY GET THE LABS ORDERED AND RETURNED THAT ACTUALLY CONTAIN THE TRUTH. THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE SICK, BUT NOT MANY "FIRST WAVERS", LIKE MYSELF, WHO CONTRACTED EARLY, ARE ALIVE. MY BLOOD IS NOT REALLY EVEN HUMAN ANYMORE...SOMEHOW IVE GOT TO FIND A WAY TO BREAK DOWN THE BIOFILM, ERADICATE VIRAL, BACTERIAL, AND PARASITIC PRESENCES AS BEST I CAN...HOPE IS ON THE HORIZON IN THE XXXX..CUTTING EDGE BIOFILM TREATING ENZYMES IN THE NEXT YEAR THEY SAY...INDUSTRIAL TOXICOLOGIST, XXXX, DR. XXXXXXX, DR. XXXX, GENETICISTS, XXXX, AND XXXXXX AMONG THE FEW BRAVE PIONEERS TO CHAMPION OUR FIGHT. DR XXXXXXX DAY , MY DR, IS A SURVIVOR HERSELF. SHE AND HER PARTNERS AT RESTORATIVE HEALTH CLINIC ARE THE ONLY DRS IN XXXX WHO WILL ACKNOWLEDGE, DIAGNOSE, AND TREAT LYME AND IT'S COINFECTIONS, OUR RENOWNED, HIGHLY RESPECTED XXXX, IS AMONG THE WORST OF THE WRONGFULLY DIAGNOSING, SMOKE SCREEN BLOWING, CIRCUMLOCUTING, LIFE RUINING ENTITIES OF ALL. CLASS ACTION LAW SUITS AGAINST THEM AND A MULTITUDE OF HEALTH CARE NETWORKS ARE EXPLODING INTO PLACE, THE GOVT IS TO BLAME WHO KNOWS WHO ELSE...THE MEDICAL SCHOOL MAY LOSE FUNDING BY THREAT IF THEY TREAT THE AFFLICTED. INSURANCE COMPANIES WONT PAY FOR THE LABS OR THE CUTTING EDGE AND NECESSARY TREATMENT REGIMENS. MY LABS THAT I SUBMITTED TO YOU COST 6 THOUSAND . MOSTLY OUT OF POCKET. I AM DYING, BUT IM NOT GOING WITHOUT A FIGHT AND THE TRUTH IN PLACE. I NOW TAKE MY LEAVE...THANK S FOR YOUR TIME AND IF YOUD BE SO KIND AS TO JUST ADDRESS THE VITAMIN.MINERAL INQUERIES, ID BE SO THANKFUL. I DO NOT REQUIRE ANY INFO ON THE OTHER STUFF. IM UNFORTUNATELY, AN EXPERT AT THIS TIME. I KNOW MORE ABOUT THE DISEASES THAT ARE KILLING ME THAN THE SUM TOTAL OF EVERYTHING ELSE I KNOW OR WILL EVER KNOW.
REGARDS AND RESPECT,
XXXX

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

I can imagine what you are going through. Don't worry about all the illnesses you have. Hang in there, think of all the good things you have and make each day of your life a celebration.

I have gone through your lab results. As you are deficient in iron and would be under physical and emotional stress from your illnesses, the vitamin supplement I would recommend is Nature Plus's Ultra Stress high potency B complex with Vitamin C and Iron.

Your kidney functions are normal and as for Potassium, I prefer you go the natural way of supplementing through Potassium rich foods if you like them. Sweet potato, potato, winter squash, broccoli, banana and orange juice are all good sources.

Hope I have answered your query. Do get back to me if you have further queries.

Regards,
Dr. Noble Zachariah
