doctor interviews and opinions about chronic Lyme disease

Pain and Brain Chemistry with Lyme Disease

Dr Rick Sponaugle uses brain scans to teach Lyme patient Eric of Pennsylvania the brain science of Lyme disease. Dr Sponaugle explains how he always optimizes brain function first when treating Lyme patients and why optimizing brain function reduced Eric’s total body pain by 80 percent in his first week of treatment at Sponaugle Wellness Institute.

Dr. Sponaugle has successfully helped many people to recover from Lyme. His approach is to treat the brain first. Very instructive video.

Shapeshifting Lyme Bacteria Part One

Published on Jul 17, 2013
Spirochetes are expected to present as spiral or corkscrew shaped profiles.

This idea comes from Textbook depictions. Spiral profiles are, in fact, only ONE form of many other Alternate PERFECT spirochetal Forms ; These Include Round body spirochetes [Cystic spirochetes], Granular dot like spirochetes, Biofilm Community Spirochetes, and Liposomal [bleb-like] Spirochetes.
All of the Above Spirochetes are PERFECT.
All of the Above Spirochetes are capable of producing injury in the human host.
Shapeshifting is an adaptation of the Spirochetes to survival in adverse conditions.
All Non-Spiral spirochetes are capable of regenerating the spiral form depicted in textbooks.

Frightening Biology of Lyme Disease

Published on Jul 20, 2013
This is a 30 minute video with Dr. Alan MacDonald, a retired M.D. and board certified in Anatomic Pathology and Clinical Pathology. This revealing interview from May 2013 (1 of 3) covers many of the controversies associated with Lyme disease:

– Chronic lyme disease;
– Alzheimer’s and Lyme disease: microscopy and culturing brain tissue;
– How Borrelia changes and survives within the human host;
– The many strains and variations in Borrelia, how this relates to flawed testing.

The complete interview is available from The Arthroplasty Patient Foundation. Contribute an any-sized donation (more if outside the U.S.) at this link:

Insights From Dr. Klinghardt on Complications That Extend Chronic Lyme Disease

Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt is a physician specializing in neurological diseases such as autism and lyme, practicing out of Kirkland, Washington. Over the years, he has found that the lyme and autism patients who did not progress in their recovery many times had an underlying condition known as hemopyrrollactamuria (HPU), also known as kyptopyrroluria (KPU). HPU is a severe but reversible deficiency of zinc, biotin, manganese, vitamin B6 (or P5P), and arachidonic acid. When treated for this condition, his patients were then able to move forward in their treatment with success.

Dr. Klinghardt has found that HPU occurs in Lyme disease around 80% of the time (or more), and it occurs in over 75% of patients with heavy metal poisoning. The incidence of HPU in children with autism is over 80%.

What Kind of Diet For Chronic Lyme Disease?

Jump to 7 minutes for presentation.

Never one to shy away from argument, John McDougall, M.D. takes this war to the enemy, challenging the assumptions of the low carbohydrate and paleolithic diet gurus who advise large amounts of animal food and the avoidance of starch at all costs. John provides new evidence that starch granules rather than animal bones are the big finds of modern archaeological digs and that starch, not animals, has always been the basic dietary ingredient of all healthy human and prehistoric populations.
He presents peer- reviewed evidence that during both world wars, European disease rates plummeted as humans stopped eating animals and began eating the animal’s food instead. Also highlighted are the enormous environmental and health costs of present day animal agriculture.
He calls for an end to vegetarian infighting to unite against the challenge of the enormous financial clout of the animal food industry which is always ready to back any new variant of the low carb, high animal food guru.

Biological Weapons Have Gotten Loose in America

 

MICROBIOLOGIST GARTH NICOLSON interview, (Sudbury, Ontario Aug. 30, 2008).
Will YOUR doctor tell you about weaponized mycoplasma? About engineered mycoplasma pathogens in vaccines? Or will he or she treat your symptoms, hook you up for life (or death) on high-priced (and often dangerous) drugs?

What’s the real story of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Gulf War Syndrome, AIDS and other degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Crohns, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, Lupus, Lyme disease, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes (type one) and MANY others?

If your doctor doesn’t know about (or isn’t CURIOUS about) US chemical & biological warfare, Operation Paperclip, MKNAOMI, MKDELTA, Texas prison inmates being used as guinea pigs to test genetically engineered pathogens (mycoplasma fermentans incognitus), then get another doctor. You can’t afford not to know what Dr. Nicolson is carefully, cautiously, telling us.

Nicolson was a speaker at the 9th Common Cause Medical Research Foundation Conference, Sudbury Canada (Aug 29-31, 2008).

GARTH NICOLSON is a whistle-blower. The kind that movies won’t be made about because the conspiracy is huge, on-going, and reaches to the top. It reveals a key element (a silent weapon) in the quiet war on the ‘lower orders.’

But SURELY parents (and grandparents) want to know – for starters – what’s going on with vaccines their children are forced to take by the Benevolent Homeland.

This video is subtitled, ‘Who’s killing us, and how?’ The title avoids the question,’why?’ Garth Nicolson, PhD, avers it’s for money, greed. Surely, that’s a big part of it.

Dr. Nicolson is the President, Chief Scientific Officer and Research Professor at the Institute for Molecular Medicine in Huntington Beach, California. Born in 1943 in Los Angeles, Dr. Nicolson received his B.S. in Chemistry from University of California at Los Angeles in 1965 and his Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Cell Biology from the University of California at San Diego in 1970. He is currently Professor of Integrative Medicine at Capitol University of Integrative Medicine and a Conjoint Professor at the University of Newcastle (Australia). He was formally the David Bruton Jr. Chair in Cancer Research and Professor and Chairman of the Department of Tumor Biology at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, and he was Professor of Internal Medicine and Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. He was also Professor of Comparative Pathology at Texas A & M University. Among the most cited scientists in the world, Professor Nicolson has published over 550 medical and scientific papers (including 3 Current Contents Citation Classics), edited 14 books, served on the Editorial Boards of 20 medical and scientific journals and is currently serving as Editor of two (Clinical & Experimental Metastasis and the Journal of Cellular Biochemistry). Professor Nicolson has received peer-reviewed research grants from the U. S. Army, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, American Cancer Society and the National Foundation for Cancer Research. Dr. Garth Nicolson has won many awards, such as the Burroughs Wellcome Medal of the Royal Society of Medicine (United Kingdom), Stephen Paget Award of the Metastasis Research Society, the U. S. National Cancer Institute Outstanding Investigator Award, and the Innovative Medicine Award of Canada. He is also a Colonel (Honorary) of the U. S. Army Special Forces and a U. S. Navy SEAL (Honorary) for his work on Armed Forces and veterans illnesses.

Nobel Prize Winner Describes Expanding Epedemic of Chronic Lyme in France

Interview in French (with English subtitles) of Professor Luc Montagnier, Nobel Prize for medicine in 2008, on the importance of detecting infections which may be at the root of chronic illness.

A great video and for validating that Borrelia and other co-infections can be chronic. We do know that Brucella,Mycoplasmas and Chlamydias are tolerated by Macrophages leading to chronic infection. We know that over 100 viruses may be transmitted by ticks, as well as bacteria, protozoans, and tapeworms, flukes, nematodes. Lyme is comprised of many types of pathogens and we need to know how these pathogens behave in the body and eradicate them.

Garth Nicolson, Ph.D ILADS 2011 Presentation part 2 of 2

Patients with Lyme Disease commonly have systemic and central nervous system bacterial and other infections. In addition, other chronic illnesses where neurological manifestations are routinely found, such as fatiguing and autoimmune diseases, among others, also show systemic Lyme-associated bacterial infections that could be important in disease inception, progression or increasing the types/severities of signs and symptoms. Recent evidence indicates that infection-stimulated oxidative damage may cause some of the symptoms found in the above diseases. 

This can be treated by Lipid Replacement Therapy, and the presentation will review recent clinical trials where LRT has been used to reduce oxidative damage to mitochondrial function, symptoms such as fatigue and other damage to membrane function .  NT Factor is very effective at boosting lipid production. Dr. Nicolson, a renowned expert in mitochondrial research and lipid replacement therapy, spoke at the annual International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society Conference PropaxNT contains many vitamins and minerals that are also essential for recovering from chronic Lyme  disease. Propax can be purchased at Amazon here.

Dr. Joseph Burrascano Teaches About Lyme at ILADS 2011 Conference

Joseph J. Burrascano Jr. MD is a well recognized specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme and associated complex infectious diseases, and the chronic illnesses that accompany them. With over two decades of experience and research in this field, he has appeared in and on virtually every form of media, has advised the CDC and NIH, testified before the U.S. Senate, an armed services joint subcommittee, and at various governor’s councils. A founding member of ILADS, he currently is an active Board Member of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Educational Foundation.

His current areas of interest include his ongoing project, ?The Lyme and Associated Diseases RegistryTM which follows each selected patient from the beginning to the end of their illness, to try to divine out what the various symptoms mean, which tests are worthwhile, to identify the medications and treatments that have the highest likelihood of curing the illness, and to uncover any possible drawbacks to treatment. In addition, he is actively involved in study of the newly discovered retrovirus, HGV, thought to be associated with chronic neuroimmune diseases, including chronic Lyme. Finally, his lifelong interest in nutrition has come to bear with his present consultative work with various nutritional supplement suppliers.

No longer in clinical practice, Dr. Burrascano works full time in the biotech arena to further medical research in tick-borne and other chronic illnesses.  Visit http://www.ilads.org/media/conference_land.php to purchase full video.
