Testimony of Phyllis J. Bryant, Medina, OH


Day 31

On Saturday, July 14, 2001was in Omaha, NE
On Sunday, July 15, I drove all day from Omaha to Medina, OH where I live.
On Monday, July 16, I rested.
On Tuesday, July 17, I drove my old Ford '78 F150 truck and worked all day at school.
One cannot feel the necrotic bite until later. I don’t know the type of necrotic arachnid that bit me.
I know that I always kick my left foot back to rest against something. Not any more!!!!
The bite can show up from 6 hrs to 12 hrs to 48 hrs to 72 hrs later.

Day 1 and next 30 days, Tuesday, July 17, 2001
I noticed an itchy red bump with 1mm diameter soft black center-three inches above my left ankle. I don't remember being stung. Sterilized the area and tried to remove the stinger. Wasn't a stinger, but soft center with 1 mm in diameter and 1 cm deep. Used an egg n salt poultice overnight. Left a clean white fleshy hole. For next 30 days used aloe, French green clay, sterile soaks; nothing helped!! More & more necrosis. Also researched about 100 hours on the Internet. I did not want surgery because it was directly over my Achilles tendon.

Day 14, Monday, July 30, 2001
Ulceration 1 cm diameter-Went to local doctor-said it was clean and ulcerated, but not a spider bite. He did nothing.

Day 28, Monday, August 13, 2001
Started taking daily photos of the bite.

Day 29, Tuesday, August 14, 2001
Second visit to local doctor-I had necrosis, 15 mm ulceration, pustules, purpura, and a bright red area about three inches in diameter. First doctor in room wanted surgery, but had never seen or treated any bites! This doctor prescribed debridement with saline solution. Second doctor in room put me on 50 mg Dapsone once daily [also used for malaria and leprosy]. According to Dr. Abrams, I should have been on 50mg of Dapsone 4x daily for 10 days when I first noticed the bite. Also ordered a 25KV Electronic Device and 25 spider traps!

Day 34, Sunday, August 19, 2001
I started the Hulda Clark “zapper box”–low voltage (4.2kv) [My friends let me barrow it until the 25KV Electronic Device arrived]:
7 min on, wait 20 min, 7 min on, wait 20 min, 7 min on
Repeat every 24 hrs.

Day 35, Monday, August 20, 2001
Day 2 using Hulda Clark "zapper box"-4.27kv

Day 36, Tuesday, August 21, 2001
Day 3 using Hulda Clark "zapper box"-4.27kv. I returned to doctor; said he could see granular tissue-good sign of healing. All I saw was the volcanic ridge around the crater. I really don’t believe that this ridge was granular tissue!

Day 37, Wednesday, August 22, 2001
Day 4 using Hulda Clark "zapper box"-4.27kv

Day 38, Thursday, August 23, 2001
Session 1: 25KV Electronic Device arrived (25kv; 0.5amps). Stopped the zapper box. Started using the 25KV Electronic Device: hit it 9 times; (In retrospect was not enough!)

Day 39, Friday, August 24, 2001
On our church's prayer chain was a request for a 20 yr old man from Brunswick, OH, [5 miles from Medina] for a brown recluse bite on the facial cheek-was bitten just this past Saturday. Seven days later already has a hole in his cheek. I also talked with another man from our church who battled the bite for 8 years and has a huge brown scar-like area on his leg. My cousin Erik from Michigan works with a man who was bitten on the facial cheek and had molars replaced.

Day 40, Saturday, August 25, 2001
Dermatitis of eyelids; severe swelling and itching of eyelids

Day 41, Sunday, August 26, 2001
Last day of dapsone (side effect of Dapsone is dermatitis.) Bite site is healing nicely. Most poisonous enzymes are neutralized and my body defenses can now invade the area and carry away this nasty necrosis.

Day 43, Tuesday, August 28, 2001
Session 2: 25KV Electronic Device: Seems to be a few spots that are not neutralized. Used the 25KV Electronic Device -hit it 12 times; (In retrospect was not enough!)

Day 44, Wednesday, August 29, 2001
Severe itching in bite area; used ice for the next 8 days. Severe swelling in the ankle area; by morning was normal only to become very swollen by evening. Anyhow, my leg is healing nicely–red area is only about 1 1/2 inches in diameter now and ulceration is about 2 mm deep with granular healing.

Day 49, Monday September 3, 2001
Yes!! Ankle swelling has disappeared

Day 52, Thursday, September 6, 2001
I finally removed the protective bandage. Yes!!

Day 53, Friday, September 7, 2001

Day 54, Saturday, September 8, 2001
Scabs from pustules falling off; dry skin!

Day 56, Monday, September 10, 2001

Day 391, Sunday, August 12, 2002
Took photo one year later; Area is still a brownish, red color about 1 _ in. in diameter. Scar in center is about 1cm diameter.

Day 391

Current Allergies: Now get tiny red spots (called petechiae) on my inside arms, hands, abdomen, thigh, and feet if I use any of the products below:
Balsam of Peru or Peruvian Balsam (in many lotions & cosmetics), neomycin (Triple antibiotic & Neosporin), Cinnabar (in many fragrances), two antibiotics: Tequin (gatafloxicin) and cephalexin, red wine, shellfish, and Medina, OH water (now comes from Lake Erie, Cleveland, OH.)

In November 2003 was diagnosed with Henoch-Schoenlein Purpura with IgA Nephropathy. My kidney biopsy indicated that one-third of the glomeruli were scarred.

Since August 2004 I have had normal kidney and blood counts.
