Lyme Disease Pt3, Co-Infections, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever

5 December 2020

Hi welcome back to another Health Bunker blog, today we’re going to look at the identical twin sister of Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF), which is a co-infection of Lyme too.

The similarities are many as are the symptoms and health issues these infections cause.

When I begun my research over 10 years ago, before we were even diagnosed with Lyme disease, I investigated every exotic disease I could find, including RMSF.

The confusing thing was (other than the intense brain fog) that all these infections had remarkably similar causes, and symptoms.

I knew a lot of my problems seemed to be from either one or multiple infections, that appeared then disappeared only to reappear once again.

Most of these exotic infections required an insect bite or sting, most of them gave initial flu like symptoms and evade the testing of mainstream science.

In today’s article we’ll ask:

What is Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF)?

Where did it originate from?

Is there a link between Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever & Lyme disease?

Was RMSF made at Rocky Mountain Laboratories? 


RMSF History

Vector borne diseases are nothing new, American pathologist Howard T. Ricketts is credited in being the person who discovered that RMSF came from an organism.

Ricketts joined Chicago University, his home city, and in 1906 demonstrated that Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever could be transmitted to a healthy animal from a certain tick.

Two years later he described the microorganism he’d found in the blood of the test animal and in the ticks as well as tick eggs.

In 1909 he and his assistant went to study an outbreak of Typhus in Mexico City. He showed that typhus could be passed from lice to animals specifically monkeys who after recovering from typhus developed immunity to it.

Ricketts died of typhus in 1909, in his memory the genus Rickettsia was named after him. (5)

He proved he could infect lab animals with RMSF and monkeys with Typhus.

His work was funded by The University of Chicago which was built by and funded by John D. Rockefeller. (6) (7)

Was Ricketts funded to develop one of the first biowarfare weapons?

And was he a victim of his own work?

Below is a video about RSMF

What is Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF)?

RMSF is caused by Rickettsia which are bacteria that are ‘obligate intracellular parasites’ (1), meaning they need a host to reproduce. In my opinion that means they’re microscopic parasites. They are separated from bacterial groups as they require insects to spread or infect a host (lice, flea, mites, and ticks). (2)

There are as many as 25 recognised Rickettsia species, these are broken down into four separate groups. (3)

  • Typhus Group (Rickettsia typhi and Rickettsia prowazekii)
  • Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF) Group
  • Rickettsia Bellii Group
  • Rickettsia Canadensis Group

Obviously today we are concentrating on RMSF Rickettsia of which there a presently 21 identified types. Here are 2 types that we tested positive for in 2017, we will go through the rest later.

Anaplasma, which causes ‘human anaplasmosis’ the species is ‘Anaplasma phagocytophilum’ which is spread by ticks that are carried by rodents and deer, it is a worldwide disease but primarily in the U.S.

Ehrlichia causing ‘Human ehrlichiosis’ again this is a worldwide disease spread by ticks brought in the house by dogs and rodents, from ticks. E. chaffeensis, E. muris muris, E. muris eauclairensis, E. ewingii, E. canis.

U.S. Outbreaks and The Rocky Mountain Labs

Early settlers in 1900 were contracting a strange disease in the Bitterroot Valley of Western Montana. Back then it was called ‘Black Measles’ because of the of the characteristic rash it caused sufferers.

Between 1890-1900 RMSF became quite common and was identified as early as 1866 by a Doctor John B Buker who had noticed a tick embedded into the skin of one of his patients.

Dr. A. F. Longeway was appointed in 1901, to try and resolve “black measles problem” in Montana. He got the help of his friend, Dr. Earl Strain. Strain suspected that the illness was from ticks.

Many doctors who studied RMSF during the 1920s, actually died of the disease itself here are a few, Doctors, McCray, McClintic, Gettinger, Cowan, Kerlee and Noguchi Hideyo.

I said earlier in the article that RMSF has remarkably similar links to Lyme disease.

Like Lyme disease, which was named after towns in Connecticut called Lyme, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever was named after the Rocky Mountain of Montana.

Also, Lyme was named after the person who discovered it (supposedly) Willy Burgdorfer (Borrelia burgdorferi) and so was Rickettsia (RMSF) which was was named after Howard Ricketts.

Lyme and RMSF are both spread by ticks, RMSF is spread by the Lone Star tick due to the sheriff’s badge like marking on its back. (There are other ticks involved)

There is another connection too. Both are situated near to a US Government Bio Labs, one on Plum Island near the Towns of Lyme, and the other in the Rocky Mountains of Montana.

The Rockefeller Institute seems to be involved in this type of research too, which leads me to the conclusions that they were funding and experimenting with a tick-borne bioweapons.

This will become clear further on in the Lyme series of articles. (8) (9)

Glucose-6-phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD) Deficiency

On a slightly alarming side note. In October I wrote about the genetic mutation of the MTHFR gene. This gene is responsible for our body’s ability to ‘detoxify’, because of chemical toxification and infections this gene switches off.

Some of you may have heard of a deficiency of Glucose-6-phosphate Dehydrogenase known as G6PD. I have this genetic mutation; I am going to write a full article about this not so rare genetic disorder, that has links to these types of infections.

But in short, people of African, Hispanic, Asian dissent are susceptible to genetic changes which brings about a deficiency in an enzyme.

RMSF was found to cause fatal complications in Afro-Americans. G6PD was also the cause of the most severe cases of RMSF.

As I said earlier, I tested positive for 2 associated Rickettsia species, Anaplasma and Ehrlichia, I didn’t go any further with testing.

So, I may also have had Rickettsia (my wife did), and these infections could have gone on to mutate and cause my G6PD deficiency.

But what came first natural genetic mutation? Or mutation by a deliberate intervention from infections and chemicals? (10) (11) (12) (13)


There are around 6000 new cases of Rocky Mountain spotted fever reported in the United States per year and in only about 20% can the tick be found. But how many are missed?

Early Signs and symptoms can include:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Rash
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Stomach pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Lack of appetite

According to the CDC RMSF:

“RMSF does not result in chronic or persistent infections or Long-term Health Problems”

Apart from

“Some patients who recover from severe RMSF may be left with permanent damage, including amputation of arms, legs, fingers, or toes (from damage to blood vessels in these areas); hearing loss; paralysis; or mental disability. Any permanent damage is caused by the acute illness and does not result from a chronic infection”

No long term health issues there then! (14) (15)

Treatments of choice are Doxycycline Antibiotics. Use of antibiotics other than doxycycline is associated with a higher risk of fatal outcome from RMSF.


Health Bunker

Rickettsia, Anaplasma and Ehrlichia are all coinfections of Lyme Disease. Meaning they exist in a revolving door of infections, one in one out continuously.

In my extensive research I have read countless books and watched endless seminars, with Professors of virology and infectious diseases. All of them bar non have the same things in common.

  1. They are all natural occurring phenomenon’s and infections to start with.
  2. Scientists are sponsored by large philanthropic global trust organisations, the government or the military via Universities
  3. Once the infections are isolated the number of infected people increases
  4. Testing is always poor
  5. Diseases cause multiple issues requiring multiple drugs.

I could go on and on, my point is this; it is beyond argument that Governments around the world use biological weapons on their own populations, and nobody is ever held to account.


When thinking of biowarfare, my mind always comes back to Operation Cauldron here in the UK.

Where our own Government sprayed millions of tons of Zinc Cadmium (now known to cause respiratory issues and lung cancers). They also released e.coli and bacillus globigii, which mimics anthrax on literally millions of the UK population from 1945-1979 in hundreds of operations.

“In 1956 bacteria were released on the London Underground at lunchtime along the Northern Line between Colliers Wood and Tooting Broadway. The results show that the organism dispersed about 10 miles. Similar tests were conducted in tunnels running under government buildings in Whitehall” . Source the Guardian 

Below is the story that appeared in the Guardian 21 April 2002  from a freedom of Information Release. Read the full story here. (16)


Is it really that outlandish that tick borne diseases were biologically released on purpose?

If our own governments do this to their own populations, what are they really capable of?

Eat Well. Be Well.
