NBC and SELF magazine reported on chronic Lyme disease

This story was published 2 years ago with a few important points that continue to fuel the medical debate.  Media and researchers confirm that Lyme has been reported in all 50 states but medical doctors refuse to admit people are being infected in all 50 states. Also, the first tier to diagnose Lyme disease is with the ELISA antibody test, some sources report up to 50 and even as high as 75% false negatives (depending on the time of year) and as low as 20 – 30% as presented here (the truth is anyone’s guess as there is no 100% reliable test available as of now, August 2014.)

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!

Erica’s Fight Against Chronic Lyme Disease


Intense story that many will relate to. None of these alternative treatments are covered by insurance and at some point we run out of money and get kicked to the curb by our doctors, insurance companies and in most cases family and friends give up too. Paul is a rare husband who is sticking by his wife. They try antibiotics, glutathione, ozone blood therapy – she still experiences adrenal failure – basically the immune system shuts down and you are forced to build it back up which can’t begin until the disease is eradicated or at least pushed back to a tolerable “load”.

Treatments For Neurological Lyme Disease

Antibiotics seem to be the most successful treatment for neurological Lyme disease. However there are many alternative treatments that can be utilized in addition to herbal or pharmaceutical treatments.  This 11 minute video is interesting and very inspirational.

We need to stop seeing ourselves as victims of a terrible disease, and see ourselves as recovering.  “I AM” is an easy tool to fight the depression, victimization and hopelessness that comes with neurological Lyme disease.  “I AM” … These words are tremendously powerful! Be careful what you put after them, for surely you they can create happiness or misery.

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.

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.

Invasive Plant Medicine for Lyme Disease

It is said that in nature, the cure is never far away from the injury. For example if you are bitten by a snake, there will be some plant nearby to counter the poison. This was of course much more relevant when people knew what to look for right there in the forest! Japanese knotweed, an invasive plant that grows all over the US, may be one of the most important plants in treating symptoms of Lyme disease. Interestingly, it has become even more invasive in the northeast US, in tandem with the rise of Lyme disease. The compounds found in the root have been used for thousands of years in Far East medicine. The most notable one is resveratrol, an anti-oxidant credited with preventing heart disease, also found in red wine. Now it’s widely sought after in the West. Herbalist / acupuncturist Timothy Scott, author of “Invasive Plant Medicine The Ecological Benefits and Healing Abilities of Invasives” shares his enthusiasm and knowledge of the plant here. It is always a good idea to consult a specialist before any new herbal regimen. Knotweed should not be taken in pregnancy except in small doses and should not be used with other blood thinners. Japanese knotweed, an invasive species that grows all over the US, may be one of the most important plants in treating symptoms of Lyme disease. –Bibi Farber I want to thank you for watching and add that I just post the videos to stimulate healthy debate.

Marty Ross MD on “Finished?” in chronic Lyme Disease treatment.

It was a good week here at The Healing Arts Partnership. One of my patients with chronic Lyme disease graduated from treatment while another group of patients seen this week are nearing that point. While I enjoy many aspects of my practice, seeing patients complete treatment and celebrating that with them is what I enjoy most. So what does it mean to finish treatment?
