Yesterday I rode my bike. As I've been feeling better, I find myself riding more often. The beautiful weather is nothing but enticing.
The bike ride itself served as a catalyst for a profound revelation and interesting discovery. While on route, I happened to pass plenty of vegetation. It just so happens though that I directed my attention towards it for a moment and was amazed to discover a familiar comrade. Teasel Root.
For those not familiar with Teasel Root, it is a biennial herb that is commonly used in Lyme Disease protocols to entice the bacteria to enter the blood stream, also known as the battlefield. This is precisely the reason I've incorporated Teasel Root into my protocol. It's the first time I've ever seen the herb in its prime and this could explain my sheer excitement.
The Teasel Root is just one half of this profound revelation. As I continued my bike ride, I encountered a grassy trail that lead into a forest. Leaving familiar territory for the unknown? Sure! It was all clear that in the words of Robert Frost, "I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference."
It was on the ride back that I began to contemplate what I had experienced. Never have I been to the location where the Teasel Root rests nor have I ever traversed the trails in which I attracted a tick from. But here I am. A host for the despicable bacteria that the tick I encountered may have possessed and for the combative and healing properties of the Teasel Root I had seen. Both of these natural enemies rested inside of me waging war, in an attempt initiated by me alone, in order to preserve the life I still have.
What is the profound revelation you ask? Well it's really up to the reader to interpret and intuitively conceive it. For me though, what I find so profound, is that a simple bike ride exposed both the good and the evil I currently encounter on a daily basis.
Never to have been seen until this day. The Teasel Root and the tick were miles apart from each other but their existence and what they stand for, continues to and will for quite some time, leave a lasting impression.
It is that despite everything we've understood to be about our fight against Lyme Disease, the fundamental factors can simply be found on the side of the road. I find that very profound.
