Take it daily and it will make the bugs hate you. All of them. And I hear that garlic works too.
Since we cannot live in a bubble, we need to make ourselfs less tasty no?

Martha's, by making the bugs hate you, are you referring to these as repellents, or that the bacterias will hate you?

Lyme,

B-1 and garlic are supposed to act as a repellent to bugs. I haven't tested this yet but it's supposed to stop bugs from biting you.
I have Lyme Disease; Lyme Disease DOES NOT have ME!

No...silly, the bugs will stay away from you. So that they do not land on you and bite you and have the time to transfer the bacteria to you from their gut.
No the only thing that the bacteria dislike is abx.
One women on here is giving garlic to her dog and says that he dog gets covered when she does not put it in his food.
This is new to me.
I bought patches for people that want to camp in the woods. And its main thing in it was B-1.
So I took some and then found that it worked pretty well for me.
I had taken two 350 mgs of it. But I think that this could do damage also. So check with the Dr. about the corect amount for you. That would not be toxic.
The problem with most pest repellants is that deet is toxic and would be hard to "live in " all the time.
But we all need to find a way to keep these moquitos off of us daily.

I take a ton of vit and supp. did you see my list?
I don't give my dogs garlic....only in their pesto...lol...kidding
But a women on here said that it worked wonders for her dog up east.
My vet drills me about lyme whenever he sees me. I will have to ask him about garlic when I see him.
Dogs are not supposed to have chocolate either...but I have a dog who figured out how to sneak them our of a closed container that sits on a glass table...need that on video.
M& M's with peanuts....lol
MY other dogs eat lizards and mice....so I don't think garlic would honestly hurt my dogs....

B1 is not toxic because the excess is eliminated in your urine. It is a natural calmative and I used to give it to excitable horses until I found out magnesium works better. It is funny that lyme depletes both magnesium and B1, so if you need calming of your nerves as well as less bug bites, try taking it. Magnesium is also not toxic. I gave my horses 1000mg B1 and 10 grams magnesium. I would divide that by 9 or 10 for a human dose. Apple cider vinegar with the mother is also supposed to be good for making you less tasty to the bugs.
I don't believe taking b1 throws the other b vitamins out of balance. I have a nutrition book for horses and nothing like that is mentioned. Taking some mineral in excess will throw others out of balance.

hi gracies mom
I listed all of the immune stuff that I am on now.
I added B1 to the huge mix.

We had over 300 horse. And we had them dipped.

My dogs eat there own poop too...lol

I am not giving them B1 or garlic. But I have my yard sprayed and do not take them out around other dogs.
Nor pubic places or on public streets.
The hot ground here would just burn their little feet anyways.
My dog got lyme and it made him really sick. I lost him in Dec. He use to sleep by my bed when I was sick. And I bet I just got bitten every day by his flees.
I don't do that anymore.

I got my 6 year old a kitty the other day..to cheer her up. Yes I am alergic to it...but as long as it stays off of my bed I am ok.

But the women who sold me the cat told me not to let the cat ourdoors. Becuase there were too many disease out side...lol

Martha, i agree with that lady, if you want a cat for a pet it is best to make it a house cat only. if you have strays they carry all kinds of diseases. feline AIDS and Leukemia and upper respiratory disease. all of witch are very contagious.

and the plus side to it, is that they love you more then the outside world. and no critters on them.

i have 2 rotties and 1 cat and 1 bird. not 1 of them has critters on them, matter of fact my male who is 10 1/2 y/o has only been bit by a flee 2 times in his life. it was a sandflee at the beach. and it was a 200 dollar vet bill. as he is algeric. if you stay up to date on all shots you should be fine and so should the pets.

also if you do plan to keep inside you may want to have it reclawed. to save wear and tear on your home. and if its young is the best time to do so. b4 that habbits starts.

I would like to have him skiski declawed too. But the lady told me not to. And since I have three dogs and one of being an over friendly and playful Bulldog. I think that he may need them if and when he meets Popeye.
Popeye does not think anything of another dog bitting him...he thinks it is all fun but the little kitty is going to need some sort of defense and that scratch on the nose is all he has.
I got sprays for the house and he at this time is confined to the kids room and he loves it in there.
If he tears up my furniture, he will no doubt die suddenly...lol

LOL Martha's Vineyard! That is funny. I'm glad you got your daughter a cat. They are so lovable. I have two dogs and a cat inside. I love animals. I used to take in stray kittens and adopt them out but I can't do that anymore since I'm sick. I miss the playful side of a kitten. Our male cat is an adult and doesn't play too much anymore.

She is thrilled to have something that folows her around and that wants constant attention and affection.
Since we are going through such a tough time with her sister being done. This is the best thing for her now.
He is adorable, even if I have to wash my hands and face ever time he jumps on me...lol

LOL, I have to wash myself off too. I'm not allergic bad but he does make me sneeze. I'm so excited for your daughter. I can see the big smile on her face. Too cute!
