wud up. I found a little bug looks like a deer tick pulled it off my ribcage put it in a bag. It was dead I dunno. My friends mom has lymes disease but only a minority of deer ticks are supposed to carry it. The mayo clinic website says there is no treatment except prevention anyways. what do you guys think?

Been there, done that.  The tick needs to have been feeding for at least 36 hours before it transmit lyme (really, it is probably more like 72 hours).  Was the tick engorged?  If not, there is very little chance of getting lyme.

No it is not engorged. I thought it was piece of a plant or weed at first. It is flat.

They drown pretty easily.  (That's how I have gotten rid of some . . . not intentionally first time!)  But it had probably had not been on you long . . . so I really don't think there is any reason to worry.

I'm usually pretty careful if I go places where there's deer ticks.  Lymes disease is not something I want.  My friend has it.  Anyway, if you continue to go where there's deer tick's I'd check my skin after hiking or whatever.

Deer ticks or any other type of tick can appear to be dead. You could hit one with a hammer literally and not kill it. The name of the disease is Lyme with a capital L as it is named after Lyme connecticut. There is treatment for Lyme disease. See for example:

http://www.ilads.org/

for further information. In particular you might want to look at what the symptoms are so that you might know if you had been infected. Following that  if you are so unfortunate to have been infected, you could look at what antibiotics are typically used in early stage Lyme. The  disease is harder to cure the longer you wait. Incidently, CFS and fibermyalgia are frequent diagnosis given to patients by physicians who are not trained in Lyme medicine. Accordingly, it is important for you to seek out a physician who is Lyme literate for a proper diagnosis.

I hope this helps.

Does anyone know if there is an accepted opinion on the use of a product called "NT Factor?" Quotes are mine.

The literature says that many supplements are in the  category of antioxidants. Meaning they remove harmful substances from the body. Whereas NT factor is supposed to actually repair damaged cells in the human body. For example, among other functions its touted to repair leaky cell walls due to illness or the aging process ; and to repair mitichondria functionality thereby improving energy production and utilization.
