The top seven overlooked factors in the treatment of Lyme disease.
We’ve been treating chronic Lyme disease complex for about two decades,
more than a decade where we’ve really been doing a lot of R&D.
The information we’re giving you here is from our
clinical experience of treating thousands of patients.
Here’s what we see kind of go wrong:
the patient isn’t fully diagnosed.
That means that they’ll come in and say:
“Oh, I ran a Western Blot;” “I think I have Lyme disease;”
“I don’t know what my coinfections are from the tick;”
“I don’t know what my secondary coinfections are;”
“I don’t know what the state of my immune system is;”
“I don’t know what my chemical or heavy metal toxins are.”
Essentially, they don’t have a complete diagnosis.
But if you don’t know what all the infections are, you can’t treat them all.
Antibiotics may work on some bacteria, but they’re
not going to work on the viral component.
You need a complete, comprehensive diagnosis.
But that doesn’t ensure that you’re going to
get a correct treatment plan in most treatment
plans, whether you’re using a natural product or using a drug like an antibiotic.
The latent Lyme disease, the chronic versions of Lyme disease, these complexes we’re
talking about, they’re resistant to treatment; they have MDR: Multi-Drug Resistance.
You need to be able to shut down that resistance.
We must use adjunctive treatments to help fight those infections.
They’ll also have biofilm communities around them, making them very hard to penetrate.
Essentially when you have biofilm, we use the term
“sludge” but it’s really a matrix, that surrounds the
infections so that they can live, and not be touched by
antibiotics very effectively or by the immune system.
So they have to be stripped during treatment.
And to further complicate matters, some of these
infections are in the blood-brain barrier.
So if you have neuroborreliosis, babesia, these are not only
multi-drug resistant, but then they’re in the blood-brain barrier.
You have to have treatment methodologies to get the medication
past the blood-brain barrier to effectively kill those infections.
You have to be able to shuttle that medicine,
otherwise you don’t get the memory fog improved,
you don’t get some of the parkinsonian tremor symptoms improved,
some of the other neurological symptoms,
mood, depression, anxiety—
all these things which can be coming from chronic Lyme disease Complex.
Remember Lyme is the cousin of Syphilis; they’re both spirochetes.
Often times, if you’ve studied late-stage syphilis,
they have a lot of psychiatric symptoms.
In chronic Lyme disease patients, you also see psychiatric
symptoms, and it’s very important to treat them.
These infections wreak havoc on the body
because they produce endotoxins and biotoxins,
designed to shut down the nervous system and hormonal system in the body.
That’s the way the parasite is trying to shut down the organism;
I’ll give you a visual:
in northern Maine you have some moose that die every
year because they get bit by a bunch of ticks.
They get overwhelmed by the toxins,
which are powerful enough to take down thousands of pounds of an animal,
and basically devour what’s left.
They are parasitic, trying to survive off that organism.
When they release these endotoxins, they are designed to paralyze;
they’re designed to block hormonal systems and cause issues in the body.
When patients have HLADR, they have a higher susceptibility to auto immune diseases.
You start putting these things together,
and you’ll see how a lot of patients can shift into autoimmunity with a
combination of infections and the “right” genomic SNP’s playing a role in there.
You must flush endotoxins and biotoxins from
the body while you are treating the infection.
When a patient is on pain medication,
because they’ve been in pain and their doctor has not been able to treat them,
only manage their pain,
it becomes harder because they are competing for the
same receptor sites as the endotoxins and biotoxins.
They are all trying to get to the same receptor sites.
So while you are trying to flush these toxins,
these medications can slow down recovery.
Then finally, the long-term key is to reestablish the immune system.
Not only making it stronger, necessarily,
but letting the immune system recognize biotoxins and endotoxins in the body,
and also reestablishing the immune system so that it
can target particularly the antiviral components,
which cause a lot of the fatigability associated
with the viral components and coinfections,
and also the parasitic, fungal and bacterial
components seen in chronic Lyme disease patients.
This is a lot that is going on!
I am just giving you an overview.
So when I say these are the seven overlooked factors,
the complexity of chronic Lyme disease is beyond
the care of a basic integrative practice,
beyond the care of conventional practice because they don’t specialize in it.
They don’t see enough cases.
You have to be working with a medical center that focuses on Lyme disease complex,
and that’s what we’ve been doing for several decades.
We just want to educate and give some knowledge to
some of the patients out there so that they can
have a better idea of how complex this is and the
different things that can be done to help them.
