My Latest Visit to Steveston

Any time your doctor prescribes coffee as an effective medicine and tells you more is better should be considered a good day!

Yesterday, I went to Steveston (Richmond, BC, has absorbed this quaint and beautiful cannery town, now a museum of the dying BC fishing industry).  It was my monthly trek to see the only doctor in BC that I know of who is actively treating Lyme disease.

New Lyme Culture Test Causes Major Denial

As usual, the standard denials and misinformation regarding the reality of there being far more treatable people infected with Lyme disease is being spread by the mainstream medical community.

While they pretend to show empathy, stating that such tests must not be used until proven (by their standards) to be valid, because they may cause patients to miss out on having a correct diagnosis, many, many patients, like me, ARE SIMPLY GIVEN UP ON by mainstream medicine.

I was ABSOLUTELY STUNNED when my doctor admitted to me that they were giving up and would not be doing any further diagnostic work.  The bottom line was, none of the doctors or specialists knew what was wrong with me, nor how to go about treating me other than pumping me full of pain medication, but rather than look seriously at any of what they claim is unproven and/or bogus diagnostic methods, they simply gave up.

WOW!!  If you give up in ANY OTHER PROFESSION, YOU ARE FIRED!!  But not doctors.  Does this inspire trust?  Not from me, any longer...  The greatest danger to health is not people going for untested and unproven medical help;  the greatest danger is those, including the various Colleges of Physicians and Surgeons, who are FORCING very sick people to look elsewhere for help.

The following article regarding a new Lyme Culture Test, published today on PubMed, is typical of what is going on:

Getting Set Up on Technorati

Nothing is simple, any more.

It used to be that I could just join something with a short name and password, and "click!"  Job's done.

Well, that's not how it works, any more.

It seems that since we have created this great big chunk of invisible playground we call Cyber Space or the Internet, we've also created a giant playground for cheaters...

So... I have to create this post with a special little code included, so that Technorati can check to make sure it's my blog... PLUS... I have to make sure the feed is also working properly, because if this post doesn't ALSO hit my feed, BAM!  Time to start over...

So, here it is, Technorati, the gobbleygook (that IS a word, right) you've been looking for:  JYG85BRQDRJG

Sayonora till next time.

A Capital Ship for an Oily... er... Ocean Trip...

So, it is probably inevitable that a pipeline will be built from Alberta's oil sands to the BC coast to carry liquified bitumen from Alberta's frozen north to Asia's sunny shores...

Let's just take a tour of this project on the last part of its route through BC, especially if the present players build the line...

Place:  British Columbia, Canada, circa 2020...

We begin somewhere west of Hazelton, BC, along the banks of the Skeena River.

Note that the pesky odour of fish is no longer there to drive tourists away.  Instead, we now have the pleasant fragrance of diesel on warm summer's days, the gorgeous rainbow colours spread across the surface of this mighty river, the occasional dead eagle floating past....
