Lyme disease spreads across the US affecting 300,000 people

By Dr. Mercola

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),1 an estimated 300,000 Americans are diagnosed with Lyme disease each year, and the prevalence is rising.

Since national surveillance began in 1982, the number of annual Lyme cases reported has increased nearly 25-fold.2 The disease is also spreading out geographically.3

Between 1993 and 1997, 43 counties across the US had a high incidence of Lyme disease. By 2012, the number of hotspots had skyrocketed to 182. As reported by Time Magazine:4

“‘Lyme disease is not only becoming more rampant in its normal hotspot of the northeast United States, it’s spreading across the country,’ a new report5 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns.

 ‘Over time, the number of counties identified as having high incidence of Lyme disease in the northeastern states increased more than 320 percent,’ researchers write…

They also note that the disease is appearing in states where it has never been recorded before. One big reason why Lyme disease is spiking, according to the CDC report: climate change.”6

Eliminating Predators Have Allowed Lyme Disease to Spread and Become More Prevalent

While deer usually gets the blame for spreading tick-borne disease, rodents are actually the primary threat. According to Richard Ostfeld, a disease ecologist at a Lyme disease research center:7

“The resurgence of deer population is an overblown factor. Our research suggests that white-footed mice are more important numerically. Basically, mice are a fantastic host for both the tick and [the bacteria that causes Lyme].”

Ticks are not born with the Lyme spirochetes. It picks up the bacteria when feeding on an infected host.8 Ostfeld’s research indicates that white-footed mice infect 75-95 percent of larval ticks that feed on them, while deer only infect about one percent.

Urban sprawl and hunting has eliminated many of the mice’s natural predators, allowing populations to grow, and with them comes infected ticks. This year, ticks are epidemic in certain areas of the US, including Illinois.

The CDC has identified high-risk counties in 17 states, including Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New York, Iowa, Michigan, and Minnesota.

What Is Lyme Disease?

Lyme disease refers to illnesses transferred by biting or blood-sucking insects. The bacterium responsible for Lyme infection is Borrelia burgdorferi, 9 a “cousin” to the spirochete bacterium that causes syphilis.

Many still attribute transmission of Lyme disease exclusively to ticks (in the US, the black-legged deer tick, Ixodes scapularis; in Europe, the castor bean tick, I. ricinus.).10

But according to Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt — one the leading authorities on Lyme disease — the bacteria can also be spread by other biting or blood-sucking insects, including mosquitoes, spiders, fleas, and mites.

Common side effects of tick bites include an itchy “bull’s eye” rash, pain, fever, and inflammation.

However, you don’t have to get the hallmark “bull’s eye” as this rash occurs only in about half of those infected, so absence of such a rash does not exclude the possibility of a tick bite. Symptoms of Lyme disease typically start out with:

  • Unrelenting fatigue
  • Recurring fever
  • Headaches / migraines
  • Achy muscles and/or joints

If left untreated, the disease may progress to muscle spasms, loss of motor coordination, and even intermittent paralysis, meningitis, or heart problems. For a more complete list of symptoms, refer to the Tick-Borne Disease Alliance.11Lymedisease.org has also created a printable Symptom Checklist.12

The B. burgdorferi spirocheteis shaped like a corkscrew, which allows it to burrow into and hide in a variety of your body’s tissues. It can also live intracellularly (inside your cells), which allows it to evade antibiotics.

For this reason, some doctors recommend giving antibiotics along with Plaquenil in order to change the intracellular pH.13 The organisms can also take up residence in biofilms, or in an encoated “cyst” form.

All of these different morphologies and clever evasion capabilities explain why Lyme infection can cause such wide-ranging multisystem involvement and why treatment is so difficult.

This also explains why recurrence of symptoms can still occur after standard antibiotic protocols. Complicating matters further, ticks can also infect you with a number of other disease-causing organisms, such as Bartonella, Rickettsia, Ehrlichia, and Babesia.

These organisms can travel with Borrelia burgdorferi (the causative agent of Lyme) and each organism causes a different set of symptoms. According to Dr. Klinghardt, many Lyme patients have one or more of these co-infections, which may or may not respond to any given treatment.

The Lyme bacterium has yet another stealthy survival mechanism. While most bacteria need iron to survive, the Lyme bacterium has adapted to survive without iron, using manganese instead.

This allows it to evade your body’s natural immune system defenses that destroy pathogens by cutting off their iron supply.14

Why Lab Tests Are Unreliable for Diagnosing Lyme Disease

The simplest presentation of Lyme disease is the orthopedic forms, which typically affect the larger joints. When the microbes and the associated immune reactions are situated in the connective tissue, the infection presents as a “vague, dispersed pain,” which oftentimes ends up being misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia by conventional doctors. In fact, Lyme disease is notoriously difficult to diagnose, and doctors quite often get it wrong.15

Lyme is known as “the great imitator,” as it can mimic many other disorders, including multiple sclerosis (MS), arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, ALS, ADHD, and Alzheimer’s disease.16 When nothing unusual shows up on blood tests, some patients are even told their problems are “all in their head,” and may be referred to a psychologist.

One of the reasons blood tests are so unreliable as indicators of Lyme infection is that the spirochete is capable of infecting your white blood cells. Lab tests rely on the normal function of these cells to produce the antibodies they measure. If your white cells are infected, they will not respond to an infection appropriately. Interestingly, the worse your Borrelia infection is, the less likely it will show up on a blood test.

In order for Lyme tests to be useful, you actually have to be treated first. Once your immune system begins to respond normally, only then will the antibodies show up on a blood test. This is called the “Lyme Paradox” — you have to be treatedbefore a proper diagnosis can be made.

I recommend the specialized lab called IGeneX because they test for more outer surface proteins (bands), and can often detect Lyme while standard blood tests cannot. IGeneX also tests for a few strains of co-infections such as Babesia andErhlichia. That said, a negative on the IGeneX test for these co-infections does not necessarily mean you are not infected, as there are many more strains than tests can currently detect.

The Controversy over Treatment for Chronic Lyme

While most doctors now acknowledge that Lyme disease is real, controversy still remains over whether or not Lyme can persist and become chronic — and if so, whether extended, long-term treatment with antibiotics is effective.17 Doctors who belong to the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) do not believe in chronic Lyme and typically will not treat a Lyme patient beyond four weeks.

Doctors belonging to the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society18 (ILADS), on the other hand, do believe Lyme can persist and are willing to treat you beyond the four- week period. Insurance companies typically will not pay for extended use of antibiotics though, as they follow the guidelines of the IDSA.

Personally, I find it baffling that physicians would deny the possibility of ongoing infection when these organisms are known to operate by stealth, and are capable of evading detection and most standard treatment protocols. I can tell you first hand, from my experience with my girlfriend Erin who was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2013 after suffering from a range of hard-to-pin-down symptoms for 14 years, chronic Lyme does exist.

The good news is that no matter how long you’ve had it, there is hope for a full recovery. A new Lyme research center attached to the rheumatology division at Hopkins Bayview Medical Center has also been created, specifically to investigate chronic Lyme. As reported by BDN Maine News:19

“Dr. John Aucott, a leading Lyme researcher tapped to direct the Lyme Disease Clinical Research Center… said his new affiliation with Hopkins will bring fresh attention, and resources, to the issue. He and others will look to determine if the infection is hiding or, as he hypothesizes, is developing into a new disorder, possibly an autoimmune one like rheumatoid arthritis. He and others will explore if there is a genetic component, an underlying condition or other bacteria or viruses involved.”

I personally do not believe that long-term antibiotic treatment is a wise choice for most chronic Lyme sufferers. I recommend exhausting every natural alternative before resorting to long-term antibiotics as it will seriously impair your gut microbiome. They also leave you open to yeast or fungal co-infections, which are already common in the disease.

Eliminating the beneficial bacteria in your gut with antibiotics will also seriously impair your natural immune function, and may raise your risk of antibiotic-resistant infection, which could be life-threatening. A gentler solution to conventional antibiotics is the Nutramedix line of herbal antimicrobials. This was developed by one of my alternative medicine mentors, Dr. Lee Cowden, and is often termed the “Cowden Protocol.”

It is not thought to cause resistance because this protocol cycles various herbal antimicrobials. The use of antifungals like fluconazole and nystatin may be appropriate and helpful when a secondary yeast infection is present. Ideally, you would focus on boosting your immune function with a healthy diet and antioxidants such as astaxanthin. A compounded drug calledlow-dose naltrexone (LDN), known to help your body fight harder, may also be beneficial.

Below is a summary of Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt’s basic treatment strategies. For more comprehensive details on his full treatment protocol, please see this previous article: “Dr. Klinghardt’s Treatment of Lyme Disease.” You can also visit Dr. Klinghardt’s website,20 where he posts his more current treatment protocols and recipes. In summary, there are five basic steps to his protocol:

  1. Evaluation of all external factors. External factors include electrosmog, EMF, microwave radiation from wireless technologies, and molds. (For more information on mold, see Ritchie Shoemaker’s website21).
  2. Remediation and mitigation of external factors. Once external factors have been assessed, they’re remediated and mitigated. (Please refer to our previous article on mold remediation.) To mitigate microwave radiation, Dr. Klinghardt recommends shielding the outside of your home with a graphite paint called Y Shield. Inside, he uses a special silver-coated cloth for your curtains. Patients are instructed to remove all cordless telephones and turn off all the fuses at night, until they have recovered from Lyme disease.
  3. Addressing emotional issues. Emotional components of the disease are addressed using Energy Psychology tools, including psychokinesiology (PK), which is similar to the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), but more refined and advanced.
  4. Addressing parasitic, bacterial, and viral infections. Dr. Klinghardt addresses the parasites first, followed by the bacteria and the viruses. “The Klinghardt Antimicrobial Cocktail,” which includes wormwood (artemisinin), phospholipids, vitamin C, and various herbs, is an integral part of this treatment. He addresses viral infections with Viressence (by BioPure), which is a tincture of Native American herbs.
  5. Addressing other lifestyle factors. Nutritional considerations and supplements are addressed.

Nutritional Supplements That May Be Useful in the Treatment of Lyme Disease

The following table lists a number of nutritional supplements found to be useful in the treatment of Lyme disease by those embracing natural methods.

Probiotics to improve immunity and restore microflora during and after antibiotics Curcumin is helpful at reducing neurological toxins and brain swelling
Astaxanthin to neutralize toxins, improve vision, and relieve joint pain, common in Lyme Whey protein concentrate may help with nutrition, often poor in Lyme patients who don’t feel well enough to eat properly
Grapefruit seed extract may treat the cyst form ofBorrelia Krill oil to reduce inflammation
Cilantro as a natural chelator for heavy metals Serrapeptase helps to break biofilms
Resveratrol may treat Bartonella, a co-infection and also helps detoxification GABA and melatonin to help with insomnia
Artemisinin and Andrographis, two herbs that may treat Babesia, a common co-infection CoQ10 to support cardiac health and reduce muscle pain and brain fog
Quercetin reduces histamine (often high in Lyme) Transfer factors can help boost immune function

Prevention 101

Considering how difficult it is to diagnose and treat Lyme disease, I strongly recommend taking preventive measures22 to prevent infection in the first place. This includes the following recommendations:

  • Avoid tick-infested areas, such as leaf piles around trees. Walk in the middle of trails, and avoid brushing against long grasses path edgings. Don’t sit on logs or wooden stumps.
  • Wear light-colored long pants and long sleeves, to make it easier to see the ticks.
  • Tuck your pants into socks, and wear closed shoes and a hat — especially if venturing out into wooded areas. Also tuck your shirt into your pants.
  • Ticks, especially nymphal ticks, are very tiny, so do a thorough tick check upon returning inside, and keep checking for several days following exposure. Also check your bedding for several days following exposure. Ticks must typically remain attached for at least 24 hours for the Lyme disease bacteria to be transmitted into your blood stream, so early removal is important.
  • If you have Japanese barberry on your property, you may want to consider getting rid of it. As noted in a recent Forbesarticle:23

“This popular shrub has pretty red color and is easy to grow — so much so that it is invasive, choking off native plants in its path. Deer favor native shrubs, leaving the thorny barberry alone.

And the microclimate around the barberry also favors the tick’s reproduction and that of the white footed mouse, an intermediate host in the transmission cycle, resulting in an aptly described ‘tick nursery.’ So rid your property of barberry and go with native plants as much as possible.”

I do not recommend using chemical insect repellants directly on your skin as this will introduce toxins directly into your body. If you use them, spray them on the outside of your clothes, and avoid inhaling the spray fumes. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has a list24 indicating the hourly protection limits for various repellents. Also beware of using toxic insect repellants on your pets. Misuse of Spot-On flea and tick products can be lethal. For safer alternatives, see Dr. Karen Becker’s recommendations.

If you find that a tick has latched on, it’s very important to remove it properly. For detailed instructions, please see Lymedisease.org’s Tick Removal page.25 Once removed, make sure you save the tick so that it can be tested for presence of pathogenic organisms.

      ——————————————————————————————————

      Why is yeast overgrowth more of a problem today? Today intestinal yeast is even more of a problem than in the past because:

      1. Sugars and carbohydrates in the diet. Many people consume far too much wheat, sugar, fruit, juices, and starches that “feed the yeast” in the intestines. In other words, these foods tend to break down or contain sugars, that are the natural food for intestinal yeasts.

      2. Antibiotics. This class of drugs favor yeast overgrowth and are massively overprescribed for many conditions from acne to colds and flus. Residues of antibiotics are also found today in drinking water supplies, and in our food supply.

      3. Copper toxicity. This also favors yeast overgrowth and is extremely common. It is discussed in detail below, as are the other causes.

      4. Mercury toxicity. Evidence exists that the some yeasts may overgrow to actually protect the body from mercury poisoning, which is very common in most people.

      5. A weak and/or toxic or congested liver. This favors yeast overgrowth because liver problems cause reduced bile secretion, and other abnormalities. Bile, specifically, helps control many harmful microorganisms in the intestines.

      6. An extremely yin condition of the body. A more yin quality of the body favors yeast growth. This is also very common today, especially among those who eat sugars and fruit, among vegetarians, and among those in poor health.

      Many yeast infections tend to be “cold” or yin conditions. They do not tend to produce high fevers, for example, and are more associated with fermentation and rotting of dead material or flesh, which tends to be cold, or colder than healthy flesh which is attacked more by certain bacteria and viruses.

      7. Mineral deficiencies. Among the most important of these are zinc and selenium. However, today the food supply tends to be low in dozens of critical trace and ultra-trace minerals. Eating refined foods of any kind almost guarantees that a person will be seriously mineral-deficient. This is why we give everyone kelp and a product called Veg-Easy, which is a freeze-dried vegetable capsule.

      8. Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and EMF stress. The presence of random electromagnetic fields can increase the secretion of mold and yeast toxins by up to 600 times or 6000%. For more on this, read http://agoodhealthadvocate.com/health/mold-produces-600-times-more-bio-toxins-with-emf/
      WHO SUFFERS FROM CHRONIC MOLDS AND YEASTS OVERGROWTH? http://www.drlwilson.com/articles/candida.htm

      3. A slow oxidation rate. Most people with mold and yeast overgrowth have a slow oxidation rate. This is usually an exhaustion stage of stress, with underlying fatigue and the accumulation of toxic metals. Several reasons for molds and yeasts in these individuals are:

      A) While their cells are more acidic, their intercellular spaces can become too alkaline, which favors molds and yeasts growth. Reasons this may occur are that slow oxidizers do not generate enough acid end products of metabolism such as lactic acid. Also, calcium, an alkaline-forming element, increases in their tissues in slow oxidation and may affect the alkalinity in the spaces between the cells.
      B) The pH or the intestinal tract also is often too alkaline. This may be due to low levels of bile acids, hydrochloric acid in the stomach and the overgrowth of various abnormal intestinal flora such as E. Coli and others. This is one reason acidophilus, an acid-forming organism, often helps alleviate molds and yeasts. Acidophilus also helps acidify the colon, impeding the growth of molds and yeasts in the large intestine.
      C) Slow oxidizers generally have a copper imbalance.

      4. A very yin condition of the body. When the body is too yin in Chinese medical terminology, molds and yeasts is not only possible, but is almost always present. This condition is called Yin Disease, and is the subject of a separate article on this website. Yin means expanded, cold, fragmented and perhaps movement in a centrifugal direction. It is a physics principle that is important in Oriental medicine, but not in most Western medical thinking.

      A major factor that make a body more yin is a diet that includes plenty of fruit or other sugars, raw foods, and a diet low in animal food or tending toward vegetarianism. This is one of the main problems with vegetarian and raw food diets, smoothies and drinking sweetened beverages of any kind.

      Other factors that make a body more yin are a slow oxidation rate, aging, fatigue, use of recreational or medical drugs, chemical additives in the diet, refined foods in the diet, drinking any alcohol at all, and the presence of most toxic metals and toxic chemicals in the body.

      7. Excessive carbohydrates in the diet, especially sugars and grains, in some people. These encourage molds and yeasts infection for several reasons:

      CORRECTION OF MOLDS AND YEASTS – DIET……..

      • Men Scryfa says:

        Men Scryfa I remember you saying once, to my relief I suppose since its less to woirry about. That Rife machines aren’t needed if other things are done. Do you still agree with that?

        Agreed here Adam. Relying on a Rife Machine as the sole or primary tool is unwise for a number of reasons. Also if it does not work right away then the patient loses interest and regards you as a quack and charlatan which is kind of understandable really even though I would never charge anyone like that, but clearly it is unconventional so ppl are going to be sceptical and be put off very easily.

        Your points about the dangers of a Yin body are very accurate. And also the risk of Alkanosis (hopefully I spell this correctly!) basically a too alkaline condition is true as well but more rarely seen in the West. The acidic food we eat means this is the main enemy by far. So yes sugars and processed food, grain and carbs out. Also the right fats and the right natural oils in the right combinations are important for the endocrine system and the hormones which interrelate with the etheric body direclty and the yin yang balance. Try not to take an extreme scientific or too precise approach based on dogmatism

        The Adrenal / Thyroid system must be working in balance and harmony so that hormone production is properly regulated by the glands in the brain and the glands and organs of the body

        An experienced practitioner can rebalance a patient themselves just by direct input of chi/vital force. But one must be able to see or detect the imbalance directly in order to do this quickly and effectively.

        Remember the secret of yin and yang is in the balance and the secret of the chi force is in the flow.

        No balance then there is imbalance, and imbalance brings sickness

        No flow to the chi leads to blockage and this brings disease.

        Balanced yin and yang is the secret of health for both boys and girls. But boys need a little more yang than yin and girls need a little more yin than yang!
        ==============
        The term Rife is also quite distracting when really we are talking about Frequency or Sound or Energy based medicine. So using those terms and putting aside arguments about ‘rife machines’ as such is best.
        Simple approach is the best way.

        Here goes:

        First accurately determine the physical illness

        Second accurately assess their diet and the state of their energy

        Third determine the priority – curing often is about unlocking a series of doors

        Begin by ensuring that they have alkaline saturated body AND THAT YOU ARE PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY AND SPIRITUALLY READY TO HELP CURE THE PERSON

        If it is Cancer:

        1. Hot Baths at 48C as many and as long as they can stand without scolding

        2. Lung Cancer – get it out of the Lung there are some good herbs for this taken in liquid form they will start to cough out the tumor. Hard to fight but when a ‘terminal’ patient starts to see what you do for them – they get 2nd life!

        3. Hot Compresses – this is targeted at the tumor(s) same principle as bathing.

        4. 12 Herbal Teas a Day – as many as the patient can stand. They pee it out.

        5. Consider Cannabis Oil dependent on your assessment refer to others. Small doses to begin. Supervise carefully.

        6. Vitamin B17 – Bitter Apricot Kernels 50 or more a day crushed better taken with something to hide the taste like maybe porridge or even peanut butter,

        7. Bob Beck Blood Purification Protocol
        You know this already we discussed it.

        8. Get them Outside in the Sunshine.
        Fresh air, even taken in a wheel chair with sun and clean environment is very important at lifting the mood, providing the balancing chi/vital energy to reinvigorate (maybe by the sea, open water or in good healthy forest and woodland rich in O2), natural vitamin D and to increase Oxygen. Get them to smile and bare their teeth. Smiling makes the body think it is happy and therefore healthy and the teeth takes Vitamin D directly into the body.
        Similarly ventilate the Home regularly with fresh air and natural light.

        9. Visualization, Optimism and Emotional Euphoria. If the patient can be got to a position spiritually and mentally to do this then go for it. If they are religious or spiritual in any normal way then go with this. Visualization of a Health Body and even better of the specific Organ in an immaculate healthy state and even better still visualization of the Energy Body with the Chi/Vital Force flowing as it did perfectly as a healthy child. If they are a good singer then get them singing if they are a talking then get them talking about positive good uplifting joyous things.

        10. Herbs: Slippery Elm; Red Clover; Shou Wu Pian; Tumeric etc etc. Minerals: Selenium others if depleted imbalanced etc etc. Vitamins: C & D in massive strength 3-4g. Alkaline body to raise the vibratory rate of the body and the water therein. High filtered sweet water intake is also very important.

        11. Prayer and Laying on of hands (may not require direct physical contact). Energy projection directly into the body and etheric healing. Praising GOD.

        12. Detoxification. Focus on trying to remove the heavy metals and other toxins that build up especially in the bones, cadmium, strontium, aluminium,
        Zeolite Clays and Salts are very good for this as can be certain natural muds. Also consider coffee enemas if the patient is robust enough for this. Remove all harmful wireless and electro magnetic fields. If targeting is an issue then unplug all electrical devices from the mains at night. Keep mobile phones wifi cordless phones switched off and well away from the patient. Remove the patient from the vicinity of cell towers, electrical sub-stations or overhead power lines.

        THEN: Frequency healing work. Emphasis on trying to get the
        WHOLE BODY TO VIBRATE AT THE DESIRED FREQUENCY.
        The Body of Man / Woman consists of:
        1) The Physical Body
        2) The Soul Body – Emotive / Mind
        3) The Spiritual Body – Etheric

        I have seen a patient who was given 10 days, Stage IV riddled with cancers throughout the body, been taken from hospital by private ambulance given a terminal diagnosis of only days and instead of arriving at home to pass on have been diverted to a clandestine clinic wheeled in on a trolley chair and placed directly under these procedures augmented by frequency healing techniques. Within 1 month they were walking, 3 months they were completely recovered never to relapse maintaining their healthy diet PRAISE THE LORD!

        Family members have purchased burial plots only to have angry funeral director threaten to sue for non-performance!

        This is natural healing and does not involve use of the technology that the Elite use to kill these diseases dead.

        This is how disease was treated in The Days of Enoch

        And Enoch walked with God:
        and he was not; for God took him.
        Genesis 5:24

        Cut this out and use it but with ATTRIBUTION and Recognition 😉

      PARASITES, AND HOW TO ELIMINATE THEM NATURALLY
      by Dr. Lawrence Wilson
      © May 2016,

      3. Spirochetes or spiral-shaped organisms. This is another group of microscopic parasites that cause such as those that cause Lyme disease and malaria, and others. These are also very common, especially Lyme spirochetes, spread by flies, ticks and many other insects.

      Lyme disease. A complete nutritional balancing program can end Lyme disease, in our experience. There is no need for antibiotics, grapefruit seed extract, oregano oil, or other toxic remedies that will reduce the number of parasites, but in my experience will not get rid of the condition.

      Trichina worm cysts are found in all pig products, in my opinion, even if the pork, bacon, lard or ham are cooked well. This is an important reason to stop eating pig products entirely! They move into the brain easily, and are endemic among populations that eat a lot of pig products anywhere in the world

      Lyme disease and malaria are carried by insects of various kinds. Lyme disease is difficult to avoid today, no matter where one lives. Most people have it to some degree.

      ——————————————
      2. If a person will not follow a nutritional balancing program, then testing and using toxic remedies will be needed, at times, for Lyme disease and other parasitic conditions.

      —————————————–
      4. There are two basic ways to get rid of most parasites: 1) kill them with usually toxic methods, and/or 2) make the body a less hospitable host, which either kills them or they leave on their own.

      This is another important principle to understand. If you the balance of the body chemistry, you may not see them leave. However, they will slowly stop reproducing if the terrain of your body is not suitable for them.

      5. Most parasite remedies are toxic to some degree and therefore best avoided. This includes medical drugs, herbs, homeopathy, colloidal silver, grapefruit seed extract, oregano oil and the others.

      The least toxic methods may be homeopathic remedies and rife frequency therapies. However, these are quite yin and definitely harmful, for this reason. They also usually do not remove all the parasites, but only reduce their numbers.

      6. Nutritional balancing does not kill parasites with toxic products. However, it makes the body less suitable for their survival, so they are either expelled or simply leave and go elsewhere.

      Important advantages of this method of handling parasites are: 1) no toxic products are required, and 2) re-infection is much less common. Even if you are re-exposed to them, the body will not support them nearly as well. The disadvantage to this method is it is often slower than taking toxic remedies.

      PARASITE ELIMINATION WITH NUTRITIONAL BALANCING

      Nutritional balancing programs can rid the body of hundreds of different parasites without requiring any remedies such as herbs, medical drugs, healing machines, or other methods. The anti-parasitic effects occur for the following reasons:

      1. A much more yang diet. Parasitic infections are generally “cold” or “yin”. As the body becomes more yang, it becomes less hospitable for all parasites. This is a critical concept and one that I find very few doctors talk about or understand. Let us say – it works.

      2. No sugars. Sugars in the diet all feed parasites. Sugars, including fruit and fruit juices, are also very yin, which promotes parasitic infections.

      3. Increased vitality. Enhancing overall vitality of the body is essential to rid the body of parasites. Parasites thrive in sick bodies. As the vitality improves, they are often easily expelled. Increased vitality also enhances the body’s ability to resist new parasitic infestation.

      My impression is a patient/customer would come to the clinic/spa and sit for an hour a day wired up to the Beck electrification device. Those that is who wouldn’t feel inclined to do it at home though of course every effort must be made to encourage them to do so, take matters in their own hands

      To paraphrase a Blue Rodeo song…’Today, I am myself again.’

      One evening last week, after a morning trimming tall grass, I picked something off my skin where the neck turns into the shoulder.

      It was black and apparently burrowing into me, and fit the description of the western deer tick.

      Afterward, I was aware of a very very dull aching radiate down into my shoulder, and an awareness of something affecting my brain.

      This more and more noticeable throughout the next day.

      By next my energy was down and my legs felt heavy, and I had a constant dull ringing headache.

      After reading up on the symptoms of Lyme disease, my worst fears were confirmed.

      I joined a scalar healing group reporting a cure for Lyme disease.

      After a day and a half, there was no improvement.

      So I took out my ‘Godzilla’ (6 volt battery), and secured the damp electrodes to the carotid arteries on either side of my neck…switching polarity every 5 minutes.

      Just before the first polarity change, the pressure in my head eased a bit.

      After about 2 hours, I was nearly back.

      Two hours again this am, and I can barely feel the sensation in my head. I will continue this eve and tomorrow evening just to make sure the last remnants are destroyed.

      I can’t believe the stifling effect it had on my thought process…I just wasn’t myself in any way shape or form.

      More later.

      III. UNKNOWN GENERAL PHYSICS CONCEPTS

      The Mineral System. This is at the core of nutritional balancing science. We use it balance the oxidation rate and the sodium/potassium ratio.

      The idea is almost totally unknown and I don’t know anyone who understands why it works. However, a pioneer of this system was Dr. William Albrecht. He was a brilliant agricultural scientist who lived 100 years ago and worked at the University of Missouri. The mineral wheel used on the cover of the ARL hair analysis booklets is his drawing.

      Dr. Eck took the mineral wheel and refined it, mostly by trial and error experience. He figured out that giving calcium does not raise the tissue calcium. However, giving copper does raise the tissue calcium.

      Giving zinc usually does not raise the tissue zinc level. However, it lowers the hair sodium. Giving manganese usually does not raise the tissue manganese level. However, giving manganese raises the hair sodium. And so forth. This is what I call the mineral system, or how minerals affect one another.
      ————————————–
      Ether-powered bodies. This means that human, animal and plant bodies are actually dependent upon a supply of ether or etheric energy in order to function. Everyone is born with a supply of ether, and when it runs down, one becomes sick and dies.

      Nutritional balancing is designed to help conserve the ether with which one is born. In addition, the Pushing Down Exercise can bring in much more etheric energy to extend life.

      This is a critical concept in nutritional balancing. It is based on Tibetan medicine and other traditional healing perspectives, where this concept is well-known. However, it is not known in Western medical science at this time. For more, please read Etheric Energy and other articles about ether on this site.
      ————————————————
      Preferred minerals. This is the idea that some metalloenzymes can function using more than one metal in their structure or as a catalyst.

      One can view this as an adaptive mechanism. If a preferred mineral is not available, the body may be able to survive by using a less preferred mineral to keep a metaolloenzyme functioning, to some degree.

      This is a somewhat more esoteric idea, although it is known in biochemistry. A very eloquent description of it is on page 7 of The Trace Elements And Man by Henry Schroeder, MD. I will quote just a small section of it:

      “… gold will displace copper,…cadmium avidly displaces zinc, …strontium displaces calcium, …lithium displaces sodium …”
      ———————————————-
      The importance of souls. This is a less well-known idea, but an important one in nutritional balancing. Souls are the rulers of a person, and are the basic unit of consciousness. Their reality is not accepted by modern science because souls cannot be seen with present microscopes. However, the holy books of many cultures discuss them.

      Nutritional balancing is designed to heal not only the bodies, but also the souls, who are also often in need of better health. For more on this large topic, please read the articles on this site about souls, such as Soul Science.

      IV. UNKNOWN PHYSIOLOGY AND PATHOLOGY CONCEPTS
      The stress theory of disease. This is the theory that all types of stress affect animal and human bodies in very specific ways. It is pioneering work of the twentieth century Canadian doctor, Hans Selye, MD.

      This is a very powerful concept as to how disease occurs in the body, and it is related to the metabolic types because certain changes occur at each stage of stress. Dr. Selye called the process the General Adaptation Syndrome.

      The work of Hans Selye is somewhat known in medical care. Many doctors and others now talk about “stress”, “stressors”, “homeostasis” and other aspects of the stress theory of disease.

      However, medical science does not measure the stages of stress, and does not use the concepts too much. Hence, it remains poorly understood. In contrast, the stress theory is central in nutritional balancing science. To learn about it, please read Stress on this site.

        REMEDIES AND WHY WE DO NOT NEED THEM OR LIKE THEM

        General systems theory is also the key to understanding why a nutritional balancing program does not require, and usually avoids remedies.

        Most people are accustomed to taking remedies and cures offered by allopaths or medical doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors, herbalists, acupuncturists and other holistic healers. They are also conditioned to believe in remedies by drug advertising. As a result, it is important to be able to explain why remedies are not needed or helpful when one designs and follows a nutritional balancing program, even if a remedy relieves a symptom quickly.

        The reason remedies are not needed is that the human body is mainly a self-regulating, self-correcting or self-healing system. This is a special type of system. It is often capable of healing itself, which is rather unusual. If one breaks a leg, it is still necessary to set the bones. However, for most conditions, if the body obtains exactly what it needs when it needs it, then healing of most conditions will occur by itself. Remedies are not needed and usually get in the way.

        However, the key is that one must nourish the body in just the right manner and gently balance certain mineral levels and ratios, or the self-healing power cannot build up sufficiently for deep healing to occur

        CONCLUSION

        General systems theory is a key to a successful future on earth. I hope this article helps you understand just how important it is in order to offer and understand nutritional balancing programs.

        In this regard, nutritional balancing is much more closer to modern computer science or environmental design than it is to conventional drug medicine, naturopathic methods or other holistic health care. If you are interested in more theoretical aspects of this subject, read The Theory Of Nutritional Balancing Science on this site.

    Check out Harald Kautz-Vella on Bases at Woodborough. He gives a thorough explanation on the link between chemtrails and Morgellons Disease. Having Lyme makes one vulnerable to Morgellons also. I would suggest, in addition to Dr Klinghardts sound advice, to find treatment that works based on physics – ie frequency based treatment. Detoxing is also essential.

    • Deuteronomy 33.22 says:

      Based on physics, yes. Whilst Rife frequency therapies may well have a place, especially for the uncommitted and undisciplined and uninterested in alternative therapies. The discussion in the comments above show how Frequency machines are not the mainstay by any means and hopefully better not used.

      NB Science is a very sophisticated science , not a healing remedy based science, but one based on Physics, systems theory, fractals, teleology removing impediments to teleology healing. Using the hair analysis to measure mineral ratios that have profound physics implications in the body. Also the more mundane aspects such as ensuring strong digestion, removing pathogens and dysbiosis in the gut, and other matters, are not overlooked. Anyone possibly vulnerable to Morgellons should seriously keep NB science in their arsenal as an attack strategy

    I’ve heard about a new ultraviolet machine called the UVLRx that’s being used for Lyme patients. It uses a fiber optic thread which is inserted directly into the vein and the treatment lasts for an hour, so all the blood is treated. Has anyone tried this?
