The Dude Abides,

Thank you for posting this. I'm not sure if it was you or someone else, but I saw this posted on this forum a while ago and ordered two with this offer (only paid about $5 for shipping). I received the books within about a week. I have not read it yet but definitely plan to soon, and will forward the second copy on to friends and family members whom expressed interest in learning more about Lyme Disease.

Hi, Intuition:

You're welcome. Thank you for the nice note. I'm one of a few people that have posted this offer over time, since Dr. Rawls has given-away this book during several other campaigns.

I hope you're doing well and I wish you and yours the best.

Sincerely,
The Dude

Hi, Girlie. shocked You're right, it was mostly cut-and-paste. I was going to make it wider, but the text wrapped so much that it was unmanageable on the screen!

Edit: I updated the display of the smiley faces.

I got this book the last time you posted it. I'm still in the beginning of it, but I think it is really good, so far! So for those who haven't taken advantage, I highly recommend it!

And thank you, Dude, for posting the deals!

Please Accept Our Gift Of "Unlocking Lyme."

This holiday season, to show our gratitude for you and the RawlsMD community, we're giving away FREE copies of Dr. Bill Rawls' bestselling book Unlocking Lyme through December 22nd. The only cost to you is shipping ($4.95 in the U.S.). There are only a few days left in our 30-day giveaway; simply use the coupon code FREEBOOK to order your copy.

/rawlsmd.com/books/unlocking-lyme


This is a great example of a "supposed LLMD" that is taking advantage of people. Remember when I talked about this in a separate post everyone? /www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=30&m=3943612

Charlie55 - "I just know that there's a lot of people getting taken advantage of with alternative treatments, just be aware of that."

How free advertising of a product on this forum is allowed is beyond me, meanwhile a link I posted supporting the removal of a Gary Wormser on a TBD working group isn't. Even if it's free, patients still have to pay for shipping, this isn't a free product.

I called out LymeNet.org before on members posting links to websites selling Rife Machines. I'm not sure what the policy is on this forum, but on LymeNet, you're not allowed to post links to websites selling products. Dr. Bill Rawls website has a store selling super high priced herbal supplements.

Believe me, it takes a webmaster to know a webmaster, which I am one, and I know how these people sucker you into buying their products with free book or e-book. They make big claims through the free literature, then they sucker you into buying their products.

This guy buys advertising on Facebook, as well as making big claims about his herbal supplements and naturopathic treatment, in return belittles antibiotic treatment that ILADs(The Real LLMDs) support as the main treatment for helping lyme patients reach remission.

Read this article here written by him /rawlsmd.com/health-articles/when-to-consider-antibiotic-therapy

"There is little consensus, however, on antibiotic use for chronic Lyme disease. At present, there are no studies showing benefit from long term use of antibiotic therapy for treatment of Lyme disease and the practice is not condoned by the conventional medical community."

This couldn't be further than the truth, considering the recent scientific studies done by John Hopkins on certain antibiotics working on persister cells of borrelia bacteria. The truth is, there's not many studies supporting the herbal treatment he uses, yet he's claimed he's healed many of his lyme patients with.

Just a warning, don't let a guy like this take advantage of you lyme patients... Some of these naturopaths will have you blow thousands of dollars on herbal protocols that are controversial with very little science beyond them, meanwhile you could of spent that money elsewhere in treatment that's proven to work.

I've heard horror stories of patients blowing all their money on alternative treatment, with very little money left for antibiotic treatment. That's the reality of the situation, considering the prices of Dr. Rawls supplements.

There's a reason why antibiotics are still the main regimen of Dr. Horrowitz. He treats with herbals, yes, but they are along side antibiotic treatment.

Herbals have their uses for pain and detoxing, but there's very little treatment that actually works against biofilms and persister cell spirochetes which we're learning.

If Dr. Bill Rawls treatment works as he says it does, then it will sell itself like Dr. Horrowitz's protocols, there's no need for his employees to hawk products on forums and Facebook.

This is coming from a guy that uses herbals every day and a true believer in naturopathic medicine like Rick Simpson Oil, aka cannabis, aka marijuana. Even Rick Simpson tears apart the companies that use his Phoenix Tears name and sells RSO for way too much money. A true naturopath is one who just helps patients with information, like Rick Simpson and Stephen Buhner has, and does not hawk products. If his treatment works, it will sell itself, remember that...

And it becomes real crazy how some supplement brands claim their supplements are more effective than other brands, Cowden and Nutramedix comes to mind. Saying "TOA Free" Cat's Claw works better than normal Cats Claw, then charging 4x the price and luring people into suggesting their product is the only one that effectively works. Traditional cats claw can be found for like $5-$10, meanwhile Nutramedix sells the same thing for $40+...

You don't need a Doctor to direct you how to take these supplements, if they work, great, you don't need a Doctor directing you how to take them when everything can be found online. Buhner as well as other sites and forums can direct you what supplements work on Babesia and what works on Borrelia.

Just be careful everyone, just looking to help...

Hi Charlie - I'm not going to debate whether or not Dr. Rawls is 'taking advantage of people'.

But, I do want to discuss this statement:
"How free advertising of a product on this forum is allowed is beyond me, meanwhile a link I posted supporting the removal of a Gary Wormser on a TBD working group isn't. Even if it's free, patients still have to pay for shipping, this isn't a free product"

This rule: "Advertising or spam is defined as posting a link for the purpose of selling, soliciting or promoting something."
I have always interpreted that rule as the member using the forum for selling, soliciting...etc.


This rule: "Links promoting fundraising, advocacy, etc. are not permitted." refers to the removal of Gary Wormser on a TBD working group....

As a Mod, I have just 'picked up' the status quo or past practice of how things have been run on this forum.

(Not saying I'm correct...but never really questioned it)

"If Dr. Bill Rawls treatment works as he says it does, then it will sell itself like Dr. Horrowitz's protocols, there's no need for his employees to hawk products on forums and Facebook."

Our member (The Dude) is not an employee of Dr. Rawls.

You didn't mention that Buhner is promoted on here...we discuss his books all the time.

Also wanted to mention that LLMD J has his patients take xylitol and lactoferrin for biofilms.

I do agree with you on that though.
There IS consensus with the LLMD's that antibiotic use is effective for chronic lyme disease.
I'm sure we all know people who HAVE healed using antibiotics. There are many past/present forum members who have.

Charlie55,

First, I want to thank you for your post. I'd never want this forum to become an echo chamber of one-sided ideas. In my time here, there's been a lot of discussion of antibiotics vs. herbs. While frustrating for me (because I always want to know "the" right path), I like reading about the pros and cons of each, so I can try to make a more informed decision. I'm not sure just how informed my decision is, though, since I'm neither a Doctor nor a Scientist. So, I also listen to personal stories...like yours.

And, to reinforce what Girlie stated, I do not work for Vital Plan, RawlsMD.com, or any businesses related to Dr. Rawls. In fact, as of January 2nd, I will be not be working anywhere. I have a separate post where I agonized over whether I should quit my job. Currently, though, I work in Healthcare I.T. for a major manufacturer and provider of healthcare systems, software, and solutions.

I do see your points about about Dr. Rawls books being an avenue to sell his products. I've paid to have a couple of consultations with him, and, early-on in my journey, I did take his "Restore" Program supplements. In about the fourth month, I finally started seeing some improvements. But, due to the cost and my impatience, I stopped. I've regretted it, ever since.

In that time, I've spent tens of thousands of dollars on other "alternative" treatments and had lackluster results. My LLPA (who also works with Dr. Jemsek) has been recommending a regimen of multiple antibiotics for a couple of years. But, I've declined, based on the "scary" things I've read about antibiotics. To this day, I remain on the fence...and, also, stuck in my progress.

Of course, I have no idea if staying on the Vital Plan supplements would have been the answer. Similarly, I won't know about what antibiotics could do for me, unless I try them. Posters like Girlie, Pirouette (who, sadly, has left the forum), and mpost, to name a few, have made some positive points about antibiotics that make sense and somewhat calm my concerns about them. I just have to get off the fence and make a decision, if I ever hope to escape my current quicksand of fear and indecision.

Anyway, to bring this back to the original point, maybe it's best that I not post anymore "free" books, if the author stands to make profits, whether directly or indirectly. I was only intending to be helpful. I guess if people want to be notified of his (or, anyone else's) announcements, they can subscribe to his mailing list.

Wishing you and yours Happy Holidays,

The Dude

I'm just glad I can read and comprehend this book. Much of it I already know but there are new things that are giving me some fresh thinking, and at the end of the day, I'll reorder from my usual source.
