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.

BEYOND THE HEADLINES
August 3, 2014
Lyme Disease
Hosted by ABC7’s Cheryl Jennings

Each Beyond the Headlines show focuses on a different topic affecting the people who make up the fabric of the Bay Area. What do you know about the disease that you could get from a tick bite? It’s called Lyme Disease.

At first, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control only reported about 30,000 cases a year. But, new studies reveal the numbers could be far higher… as many as 300,000 a year. Now, the CDC estimates that number could be as high as a million cases a year!

Yolanda Foster Shares About Her Chronic Neuro-Borreliosis

Listen to Yolanda Foster from “Beverly Hills Housewives” share her story of being diagnosed and finding a treatment for chronic Lyme disease:

 Yolanda Foster talks about Lyme Disease and her Lyme Disease Treatment over the past few months. The LRA or Lyme Research Alliance held a GALA event in Connecticut on April 6th to announce an award to Yolanda. She experienced joint pain, insomnia, and other lyme symptoms and even said it felt like an infection in her brain. Yolanda was treated at Sponaugle Wellness Institute in Palm Harbor, Fl as a referral from Suzanne Somers. |http://http://sponauglewellness.com/w… | Natural Lyme Treatment | Sponaugle Wellness Institute, 32815 US Highway 19 North, Palm Harbor, FL 34684 | 888-775-2770

Bacterial Attack Models That Cause Chronic Lyme Disease

Published on Jul 21, 2013
Cystic Borrelia are under-appreciated in borrelia biology. This full-length lecture discusses the formation of Cystic Borrelia, and the pathological effects in the human body which are associated with chronic Lyme disease, especially in the brain. Congential hydrocephalus caused by gestational borreliosis [ 3 cases in world literature ] are also reviewed in detail by expert Dr. Alan MacDonald.

Discussion of the possibility of motility in Cystic borrelia is correlated with Electron Microscopy of borrelia Cystic forms. The String of Pearls form of borrelia is illustrated, and the identification of Borrelia String of Pearls forms in human blood by Professor Morten Laane is illustrated. Round bodies associated with various Neurodegenerative Disorders in the Human [ ALS, Parkinson’s, Cortical Lewy body Dementia. CorticoBasal Degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease, FrontoTemporal Dementia] are correlated with parallel observations of Round Body Borrelia invading human brain neurons in a case of Alzheimer’s disease. A new paradigm of Round body Neuropathology is suggested for further study as evidence of Invasive Cystic borrelia microbes. This Paradigm would shift the classification of Neurodegenerative disorders containing Round Intra-neuronal bodies from idiopathic in cause to chronic Lyme disease and infectious diseases of the human brain.

Never Give Up

Neuro-Lyme can cause obesity due to lack of motor skills and neurological pain in all joints leaving many of us bedridden and acutely depressed – so much so that suicide is the number one cause of death (that we know of currently) in Lyme disease.

What can we do?

Something Easy to Help Recover From Chronic Neuro Lyme Disease

Watch this with an open mind.  I realize that we are all at different levels of disability, however, these little ideas can have a big change. But honestly, isn’t even a small change towards better health worth more than money can buy?

Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” — standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident — can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.

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%.
