05/07/2009: Peggy from West Palm Beach, Florida: "My sister has been bitten by a tick and has Lymes Disease. Has anyone had success with H2O2 and Lymes Disease?"Replies
02/28/2012: Michael M from Jupiter, Florida, USA replies: "Hi Peggy, I have Lyme and live in Jupiter. I have used H2O2 with some immediate success for neurological issues of Lyme and seemingly helping with some of the co-infection. However, I am not sure it helps with parasites, such as Babesia (biting and throbbing symptoms for me). Some say they Babesia likes oxygen, therefore it could possibly make Babesia worse with H2O2 or ozone (O3). Although I worry about its oxidative side effects, I have dripped store bought 3% peroxide down my spine and rubbed it on my back, arms, legs and joints when I was scared I could lose my nerves and body parts to Lyme. Peroxide did help.
I also took 35% food grade peroxide, diluted it 10/1 with distilled water, and take 5-8 drops of that in 8oz of distilled water over the course of a day, and that too seems to help with brain fog. I am worried about taking it often, so I use it only a few times a week, as needed.
Essential oils, such as Lemon Grass may have been just as good lately (just started them 10 days ago). My oil specialist is Eileen "Connie" Linne, ConnLin9@gmail.com. She is knowledgeable about alternatives and beauty (has an ozone machine) and also uses and sells various health products like super strong essential oils (not in stores, that I have seen) and Jusuru, both of which I am preferring for the time being.
I can tell you all I've done and what works and doesn't if interested. I have a RIFE machine which I think everyone with Lyme or any chronic condition needs because it works fast for acute symptoms, if not yet a cure. You just have to stay at every few days. But you can have big die offs from it and you can certainly get frequency stress which can wire you out for a day or two if you do the treatment for many hours at a time as I do once or time a week.
I am currently planning on trying "Advanced Cell Training" (see YouTube or Google), which many people with Lyme have apparently been cured by. It's cheap in comparison to many other protocols and totally natural.
There is a Acupuncturist, Ward Hale, A. P. In Down Town, Palm Beach Gardens (in back of Whole foods) who has some great testing equipment called ZYTO and advanced many diode laser treatment device that are also very strong. I do those treatments once or twice a week. They are amazing if you have very strong localized symptoms in specific organs or areas, and it stops those roaming issues almost immediately. Ward's prices are very reasonable, and he and his wife or partners, Lourdes, are both warm and knowledgeable. Their number is 561-337-9439, website is www.IPlanetHealth.com. Tell them Michael sent you. If you wish to talk to me, ask them to contact me."
03/29/2012: Tim from Orlnado, Florida replies: "I was thinking of trying advanced cell training. Have you tried it yet and if so what do you think? tks Tim"
09/27/2013: Whiskers from Cocoa Beach, Fl replies: "I agree with the things in this post and have a few helpful ideas. The zyto was crucial for me to discover that I had lyme and 18 additional coinfections. Mostly of the bartonellas. There is candida and aspergillis too. If I had not done the zyto I think I would have spent years trying to discover all the additional coinfections and maybe the lyme too since it can be elusive to diagnose. In addition to the essential oils of GSE, OO, cinnamon, thyme, peppermint and lemon twice a day. Neem leaf tea is something I can feel break up the mucous and NEBULIZING buffered reduced glutathione and baking soda to buffer and separately nebulizing H2o2. The nebulizing has allowed my lungs to release the mucous that has been trapped for 20 yrs. Another critical thing one MUST do is to nourish the methylation cycle with hcl, methionine and trimethylglycine. For me the worst thing to deal with has been the brainfog. I have recently discovered that msg and its many names its hidden by is a major problem. Being a good diet detective is another notch in the key that cannot be neglected. Get tested for test for chlamidia, Dr Klinghardt reports 86% of worldwide Lyme patients are infected with Chlamydia pneumoniae in his experience. Another thing to watch out for is magnesium stearate which is found in MANY supplements at the health food store. Magnesium stearate is an ideal food for biofilms. One of the only companies that doesnt use it premier research labs. To heal we must support phase 1 AND phase 2 liver detox. Phase 1 requires oxygen and heat. Phase 2 requires glutathione."
09/28/2013: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc replies: "Hello Whiskers:
Thank you for your excellent and "packed with info" post on Lyme disease.
Of special interest to me is the fact that there are so many "co-infections" with Lyme. Does your research reveal if there are so many co-infections because the Lyme bacteria facilated them (weakened immune system?) or perhaps the original infestation from the bite brought them like a spider bite, for instance, brings not only the poison but accompanying pathogens too.
And could you explain what "zyto" is.
I've come across a few suspected Lyme cases. One after a friend and his wife went hiking and he immediately developed a rash on the back of his shoulder. The stiffness moved into the neck and he lost most energy. He became unable to work. He went to 4 specialists (over three or four months) but no one could conclusively prove Lyme. It is ellusive.
He could barely exert himself and he'd have to go to bed for a long rest if he even walked down the street. I suggested colloidal silver to him and he got on an extensive program of morning and evening consumption of CS. In his case the results were dramatic; in five days his energy was returning and in a months he'd gone back to work and in three months he was asymptomatic.
He attributed the CS to his recovery.
Have you tried CS? You listed a number of helps but I didn't see CS. I always warn, by the way, that at least in my experience the CS products are NOT alike and one must have sufficient PPM to work correctly. I usually test them when there is a sinus infection. If sniffing into the sinus a teaspoon of the CS causes the sinuses to sting a bit and then drain, you know the CS you have is potent enough to work elsewhere in the system.
Please re post and give more details about your battle with CS. Your are quite knowledgable and I would appreciate your contribution to the readers who are interested in Lyme."
04/22/2014: Greta from Kentucky: "I am wondering why you don't have ledum x30 listed in your remedies. I found it here in my my initial search for help in Lyme's Disease. Further research shows a lot of promise but you don't list it. Do you have other research that shows a problem with it?"
EC: We have no more info on it. If any of our readers have experience with it, good or bad, please let us know.
06/18/2014: Bill from Albion, Ca replies: "I've used ledum and it works well to stop itching and aching but I don't trust it to kill Borrelia. I work in the woods and sometimes get bitten several times a month. I deny being a MACHO DUDE, I just refuse to put up w/ those bites. I've found the quickest & cheapest permanent treatment is after you pull out the tick: cook the spot w/ the tip of an incense stick. it hurts but destroys the proteins and bacteria that cause a reaction, and you get a scar anyway. (maybe put some zinc & vit.E on it) The burn has to be 2nd deg, black in the middle, white about 1/4 inch in dia, and then red. The red doesn't mean much, but white is important because it means the treatment goes about that deep too (1/8 inch). If you just jab it and yell ouch, it'll be red w/ a black center but won't reach the depth of the bite. If you get bitten on your back where you can't reach it, use a mirror and ink pen to circle the spot, then have a friend, or enemy (they do a good job) use the incense. a big nail heated on the stove works but they sometimes cool before it's cooked enough."
[NAY] 03/10/2013: Yochana from Brookline, Ma, Usa: "Hi, is there anyone with a rife machine in the greater boston area and is it very expensive?
I think I have lymes- a kinesiologist said I may well have it. I have very bad pain around my neck and shoulders, under my skin it feels broken up and gravelly and it feel electric, I have similaer pain around my hips, my balance is off, I have brain fog, intense mental pain that feels almost physical, un believable exhauastion, insomnia, resentment, terror, depression, ocd, ibs etc. and thus far nothing has helped-not acu, massage, chiro, supplemenmts etc.
I have a lot to live for, but the pain and exhaustion are unbearable. Any ideas? Thanks"Replies
11/18/2013: Grateful Mother from Colorado replies: "Hello Yochana,
Have you ever tried candida/parasite remedies? My son was very ill. By 8th grade he missed 14 weeks of school. He had a lot of what you have and more. So much pain in his neck and shoulders and all over really, but started in his neck and shoulders. Diagnosed with severe sinus disease, asthma, it was suggested he had chronic fatigue syndrome then diagnosed with fibromyalgia. He had extreme headaches, severe insomnia, dizziness, extreme fatigue always getting canker sores in his mouth, swollen bottom lip, brain fog and the list goes on. We had every blood test that exists and no one could say what was wrong with him. The doctor's would just diagnose each symptom as a separate issue.
A client of mine told me about someone his friend went to that he thought was amazing. He was an acupuncturist that practiced Chinese medicine. After just a few minutes with him, he diagnosed him with systemic candida. He put him on a strict diet along with some herbs. After all we went through we were a little doubtful about what would happen. But that was really it. It took about 3 weeks for him to start feeling better. But we stuck to the diet to the letter. And my son was desperate enough to stick to it too. It took about 5 mos. for him to feel healed, but he is now a sophomore has only missed a couple of days of school, takes a strength and conditioning class, can blow 450 in a spirimitor (if you know what that is in the asthma world) when he used to barely make 325 and each additional blow would drop from there, he sleeps like a teen should(like a rock and for 9-10 hours on weekends), he is full of energy and is a different person. It was a nightmare that is finally over for us. If this sounds like anything you are going through, I would be happy to tell you more.
Wishing you the best, Grateful Mother"
11/18/2013: Dave from Fountain Inn replies: "Hello Yochana,
About the Lyme possibility ... I've had a few experiences with Lyme; two very successful and one questionable.
Colloidal Silver is worth of trying for two weeks. If the CS is "on" you'll fee the difference in seven days or less. The energy will come back fast...you'll feel like yourself again...BUT be careful, you are on thin ice.
CS irrigations ... sinus and ears. Three tablespoons am and pm on empty stomach orally.
Post back if you need details.
03/08/2014: Yochana from Andalusa Spain replies: "Hi, I have been diagnosed by a chiropractor as having lymes disease and I am taking a variety of supplements to help me.
Finally I am doing something positive to heal. For so long I could not take any consistent steps to make myself better. I just felt too overwhelmed and stuck.
So to anyone out there feeling the same way please dont give up. Even if you are afraid to get better keep seeking help. take small steps. Ask god/goddess Jesus allah buddah, hashem shekhina, the great spirit etc, love the loving spirits spirits of your ancestors devas angels or spirit of nature to help you. If you are an atheist call on the web of life or on love to help you.
We need you.
I was interested in the collodial silver and wanted to know what is a good brand and if it is safe to take. Dave said I was on thin ice and I was not sure what he meant.
Someone else mentioned candida, and according to the person I am working with I do not presently have candida.
I don't eat sugar at all and have not done so for over 2 years, thank god and overeaters anonymous that has mainly taken away the terrible cravings.
I still have gastric distress
I used to eat 20 candybars/junk pastry a day!!!!!
I don't know if I should cut down on or stop eating grains. I eat rice and buckwheat and quinoa and fruit. I also eat a lot of chicken and turkey.
I am allergic to soy and seitan so I cannot do tofu tempe etc. beans make me extremely ill tho I can tolerate hummous, maybe cause it is mashed up.
I eat a lot to maintain my weight which often runs low.
I get overwhelmed by the sheer volume of info on here so if you can make it simple that would be great.
Does anyone in Boston area have a rife machine?
I am still having great trouble sleeping and the pain in my neck area is very bad. I dont want to take drugs for the pain if you have other ideas I am very open. Thanks
If anyone can consolidate what works that would help as I get easily overwhemed. Thanks, Yochana"
01/11/2012: Arrow Durfee from Mackay, Idaho: "Subject: Lyme Disease - please post on your Lyme disease page.
I am the editor of the blog HealthSalon.org
I put up this article about the treatment of Lyme as given to me through my neighbor and then through an interview with Dr. Henry West who treated him.
I invite you to visit this page and read up on this chronic lyme protocol that is proving to be highly effective. HealthSalon makes not only no profit but no money from its endeavors to educate the public.
06/26/2012: Gill from Marblehead, Ma, Usa replies: "Hi, I wonder if I have lymes.. Around my shoulder and neck, it hurts like crazy, also on the sides of my stomach, it feels gravelly under the skin and also almost hard and crunchy, the pain feel kind of electric, I am also very exhusted, cant sleep well, digest problems and neurological problems-neuropathy in legs and feet, not from diabetes, tremor in my hands and I feel off balance, its not visible, but feel like I could almost fall. I also have mood swings.
Does that sound like lymes or something else? Thanks."
07/26/2012: Jasonm from Chicago, Il replies: "Yes! That is Lyme disease. Please don't waste any time going to traditional doctors. They have no clue.
This is what I would do if I were you... Start taking 10grams of food-based vitamin C (NOT asorbic acid) while you wait for a "official" diagnosis or blood test. The best brand is made from 100% organic oranges and is easily digestable. I can't name brands here but look it up online it is easily absorbed and you can take a large amount without issues. This is not the case with standar vitamin C. Also increase your sea salt or himalayian salt intake. Salt kills bacteria and other pathogens. Eat lots of organic US grown garlic and onions. Also avoid all sugar (even those in fruit). This will help your body fight the infection while you find a doctor to work with. Do not wait, do this immediately!
If you need confirmation of Lyme (now that I look back I wouldn't need it... I would just go based on symptoms. Waiting for test results takes away time/money on getting treated) you need to find a good LLND (Lyme-literate Naturpathic Doctor) or a good LLMD (Lyme-literate MD). Again I would do things to build your immune system while you look for these folks. There are very few people educated in Lyme and it takes some knowledge to beat this disease. It takes a lot of time just finding a doc to work with... So KEEP building your immune system. Also google "Beat Lyme" online and see some good success stories!!!"
07/27/2012: Timh from Louisville, Ky, Usa replies: "Good Lyme advice. As for Immunity Building, if I might add, the Thymus Gland is also very important. The Thymus gland is like the brain of the immune system as it is involved in both production and regulation of immune or white blood cells. Thymus function decreases significantly w/ age so any method to augment it is definitely recommended especially those suffering chronic infections.
To boost the Thymus do these little exercises on a daily basis and significantly boost your immune power. First, use some type negative pole magnet (the side that sticks to metal) over the Thymus, which is directly between the lower neck and heart area; a common refrigerator magnet will do just fine; do this for approx 15 minutes. Second, do the "Thymus Tapp" by making a fist and gently bump the T area a few times and wait a little then bump again several times daily. Thirdly, supplement Raw Thymus Glandular as recommended on label."
02/06/2013: Andrea from Prescott, Az replies: "Gail, it also sounds like menopause symptoms.... Are you menopausal maybe?"
[YEA] 02/13/2011: Llltdia from Melbourne , Florida, Usa: "I've had lyme for 32 years and lyme arthritis for almost as long. Everytime I get lucky enough to find a doctor to give me Nystatin I feel fantastic. It gives me energy and my knees stop hurting. I have researched this on the net and found doctors in England and Germany who treat lyme disease with nystatin and sometimes with nystatin and diflucan. I cannot get any doctor to believe me because they are so brain washed into thinking that Nystatin will destroy the liver. It does not go into the bloodstream, and it is a natural yeast yes yeast from the ground. It was discovered by a woman scientist who found it in the ground of a friend's dairy farm. It is natural and grows in the ground. There is a show on TV called Know The Cause and the moderator Doug says he has been taking Nystatin for over 30 years to kill yeast and that yeast is the basis for most medical problems. I have read many times that Nystatin will kill MS and that just made me sick. Just think of the people who suffer with MS. Am I wrong when I think of Richard Pryor who burned almost his entire body and of course was on constant antibiotics and then suddenly developed MS. I have a friend who's husband is a Viet Nam Vet and has had several surgeries because of war injuries and of course he has had his fair shair of antibiotics and then suddenly developed MS. Has anyone noticed that you can purchase tons of antibiotics on the net but try to purchase Nystatin without a prescription without paying an arm and a leg for it. It does not destroy the liver, it is from the ground so why is it being treated like a controlled substance.
Canadian sites advertise it for lyme arthritis which proves to me that I am not imagining anything. I finally found a DO who believes me and is giving Nystatin to me along with Penesillin becouse it is the only antibiotic I am not allergic to. Come to find out Penesillin V is used to treat Lyme arthritis in little kids but they say it must be on IV. I take the pills and it does it for me. I take the pills at night because they knock me out cold (don't know why) and the Nystatin in the day time. I think I'll stop the Pen. And just stick with the Nystatin like I took in the past. It takes me back 32 years and it is heaven. All of the sites that I read in Western Europe and Canada use Nystatin with (and sometimes without) the antibiotics. I really smell a huge rat. So what else is new?"Replies
03/15/2011: Believe from Houston, Texas replies: "Hello,
I would like to let you know of a treatment I went on for a systemic yeast infection. I used essential oils in a double 00 capsule: 10 drops of thieves oil, 4 drops of frankincense, 4 drops of oregano oil. WOW what a difference a few days makes. I have been dealing with this for 6 yes and I think I am finally turning the corner. I had a major detox reaction that kicked my "---" for three days, but I am getting stronger every day. I am also mixing these oils with jojoba carrier oil and I am rubbing my skin down daily. Also using thieves and rubbing directly on spine 2 times per day. I feel like I am among the living once again!!!! Obviously, diet is critical, NO SUGAR!! Oh yea Probiotics, Probiotics!! I think the safety profile for the oils is safer than Nystatin, anyway perhaps this is another option for you. I hope this helps anyone like it did me!! As with any treatment check for allergies and make sure you are strong enough to handle the detox, if you are too weak it can seriously harm you, so adjust your internal dose accordingly (I did every 4 hrs, but again this really knocked me down with the detox reaction)."
12/01/2011: Aneta from Murrieta, Ca replies: "Interesting information on Nystatin. I was googling Nystatin and ran across this post. I stopped antibiotic treatment recently because they were killing me and have started herbal treatments along with antifungals. My LLMD suggested we kill the fungal before we attact the Lyme. I started nystating today after 7 days of just herbal and I feel awful. The nystatin is killing something and I feel achy, twitching, headache and lethargic. Is it killing the lyme or is this just a die off of fungal giving me this reaction? I was on nystatin with all the antibiotics and feeling terrible. After reading this post I wonder if it was the nystatin killing Lyme all along."
05/08/2012: A_glade from New York, Ny replies: "Please stop spreading disinformation. Nystatin is an antifungal compound from bacteria, not a "yeast". I do not know where you get your information, but if you don't even know the basics (which you could find out in 2 seconds by reading Wikipedia), you are definitely not qualified to give out medical advice and I fear the disservice you are doing to others. I am frightened by this growing trend of medically illiterate people spreading myths and lies. You're as bad as the snake oil salesmen who are profiting from inventing things like "systemic yeast.""
11/23/2013: Ali from Wales, Uk replies: "If someone has been taking Nystatin for over 30 years then at best it is only ever a temporary relief. It doesn't kill the microbes, it just knocks them back a bit.
Changing the diet has the biggest effect. Within 18 months on a gluten-free, low carb all natural unprocessed diet I was no longer a walking fungus-factory. Having enough good sea salt and vitamin C in the diet makes a big difference too. Changing the environment within the body has the greatest effect on the outcome."
[YEA] 01/06/2011: Matthew from Millbrook, Ny: "First off, you'll have to forgive me for sounding too excited about the sea salt remedy that I have posted earlier. Yes, it made a great difference, but not until I began oil pulling did I notice roughly 99% of my Lyme symptoms actually "vanish. " I suppose that I didn't notice that I still had symptoms until after oil pulling, when I noticed many of the classic Lyme symptoms greatly subside.
I started oil pulling with extra virgin olive oil about two months ago. I did it for only five minutes, once or twice per day, so as to have the least prominent Herxheimer reaction. I immediately felt what I perceived to be a "mood lift, " and I noticed that I was beginning to think more clearly. My chronic headaches also got less and less noticeable. As I continued the therapy, I regained much strength that I thought I would never have again. There are many other benefits that I could write here, but I'll try to stick with just the Lyme details.
I found a bottle of extra virgin sunflower oil, so what I began doing was using both the sunflower and olive oils at the same time; a small spoonful of each to pull with at once. I noticed "strong" detox symptoms with the sunflower oil added, however nothing serious enough to deter me from continuing. At this point I was pulling up to 20 minutes, twice per day. I noticed my body getting continually stronger and healthier, and Lyme Disease began to seem like a distant memory.
As I write this, I feel as if my body is about 99% of what it was before contracting the disease two years ago. It feels like my brain power has practically increased ten fold, no joke! I am still astounded by the results I am experiencing. I continue Oil Pulling daily, now with only sunflower oil (olive oil stained my teeth a bit), and I also remain on a diet "high" in Himalayan salt. I also take a Lithium Orotate supplement once per day, as it is said to protect the brain from neurotoxins.
I would also like to add that my Lyme came days after sexual contact with someone whom I now suspect showed all of the classic symptoms. Another gentleman who had contact with this person also contracted Lyme after a few of these "experiences. " Laboratory tests have proven that live Lyme spirochetes are present in vaginal/seminal fluids of the infected persons. If a tiny little tick is enough to transmit this disease, then can unprotected sexual activity do it as well?
Many people here are upset with, and/or angry at the "professional" medical establishment in this country. I am not afraid to claim that many a conspiracy exist, and that you should never underestimate the extent that a person can become corrupted by money and/or power. REMEMBER, we are all only human. We all make mistakes. How many of us have ever lied? Whom of us have conspired against another? Has money ever been a top priority for you, while more important issues were at hand? I personally forgive all of those lost souls who continue their attempt to weaken and keep us down. They likely just don't know any better, and if they do, I have faith that they will fall. HARD.
Dr. Masaru Emoto has pretty much proven that human consciousness directly influences the structure of water. I HIGHLY recommend researching his work. DO NOT let your thoughts destroy you, nor others!
For now, I practice celibacy, continual unconditional respect for all, abstain from all drugs (including caffeine), with the exception of red wine, take lithium orotate, use good amounts of raw salts, and Oil Pull daily. Thank you Earth Clinic, and everyone who has worked to benefit the good of the human race.
I don't expect anyone to believe what I have written here. Question everything that I have claimed! A former Harvard professor, who once lived here in Millbrook, said....... THINK FOR YOURSELF."

01/09/2012: Jasonmchicago from Chicago, Il replies: "I totally agree with the psychological aspect of it. Once you forgive (and get the right diagnosis) that's when healing happens.
There's a wonderful doctor who wrote about pain many years ago... He said something like healing happens in the sacred space of optimisim, persistence, and calmness... Not negativity, complacency, anger, and fear!
I just got diagnosed after 1.5 years of crazy problems from anxiety to jaw pain... Muscle problems to joint stiffness. One of the first things I worked on during this journey was to fix my way of thinking and not be an "injustice-collector" someone who always sees the "injustice" in things. Yes things are not that great... But what's the use of screaming, yelling, being angry about the "injustice. " I had to learn this otherwise I couldn't make it. The physical conditions were out of control and I needed to have a good spirit to make it through. I just got diagnosed with this. It's definitely chronic and am putting a plan to get better. I'm going to try Vitamin C IVs, Ozone, Infra-red Saunas, Priobiotic Enemas, Parasite Detox, etc. I'm going to use the following herbs...
Cat's Claw, MSM, high dosage oral Vit C, Vit D, Vit A, Vit E, Selenium, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Activated Charcoal, etc.
For 1.5 years I had NO IDEA what was going on with my body. I literally thought I was going crazy. I'm relived to have a diagnosis because now I can tackle it and fight the real issue. I took many supplements/herbs throughout this time and controlled inflammation but didn't have enough immune boosting supplements. That's what has made the difference.
Also knowing when to use things like Vit C, Activated Charcoal, Cilantro, etc. to remove the toxins from the die off.
My 1 month antibiotic treatment is almost done and I think I'm going to use only natural ways to build my immune system, detox, and kill this thing off.

After about 10 years and two seperate misdiagnosed episodes of Lymes Disease, I have now been symptom free for almost 5 months. After many different antibiotics and antifungacides I finally said to hell with them all and here is what I did:
I spent about seven days eating nothing but whole mandarin oranges and whole lemons. The whole thing, including the skin, seeds, pulp and juice. I would cut them into little pieces and wash them down with very hot plain water. I also took about 5 grams of Vitamin C.
Don't ask me why, but something just told me to do it. After about 8 days I woke up and I knew that the lyme disease was over. I then went on a modified no sugar - no flour diet. I did eat some whole fruit and lots of organic soy nuts for carbs. I lost 45 lbs and no more blood pressure medicine.
I now eat just about anything I want but not much, if any factory/processed foods.
We are all individuals and this worked for me. If I had not found this site and then listened to my bodies voice, I might still be suffering.
Thank you, best wishes and peaceful life to all,

raw & organic are the two considerations, chemicals from herbacides, pesticides, etc that might be on the skin could be a problem - so use organic only."

No processed foods. No white flour or sugar. I have read others who have done watermelon fasts similar to the oranges and lemons. I believe there is something to this."

07/30/2012: Paul from Guelph, Ontario, Canada replies: "I essentially did the same thing only with lemons. But first, over 3 days, I did the vitamin C, salt and water cure for Lyme. I was roughly 150 pounds so I injested throughout the day, 8 grams (that's right, grams. ) of vitamin C, 8 grams of salt, and 8-10 glasses of water. Over the course of 3 days I 'diarehead' it out. My symptoms fell away like butter. I essemtially stick to a gluten free, whole foods diet, with very limited grains and potatoes, always careful to keep my body as alkaline as possible, eating apples or slices of apples throughout the day. A year later, I did the lemon cure with apples and mastic gum for my decades old stomach condition. My stomach has never been better. I essentially stick to a blood type diet (O positive in my case) which is essentially paleo. Although I prefer to think of it as more neo-lithic. Fruits, veggies, meat and fish with limited grains. In fact, for my grains, I am still eating the odd Kamut bread but am hoping to go more raw food and sprouted grains. I try to limit my eggs to once or twice a week and goat's milk 2-3 times max per week, with goats yogurt for smoothies. But whole foods and keeping alkaline and eating an anti-inflamatory diet is the key for me. Since I am not completly raw foods I enjoy curry and the wonders of turmeric, etc. My 'indian dosha' is pitta-vatta. The links between different healing systems are like connecting the dots. Neverthless, it was the vitamin C, Salt and water cure over 3-4 days that saved me from my Lyme disease which had reached the point of encaphlitis. Now, I just have a very lingering tinnitus, which generally regular apple consumption and the occassional lemon peel help from time to time. Best of luck."

Does it help to eat the skins of org lemons, oranges and limes if I am eating reg food, tho no junk sugar etc. Also, is collodial silver safe? NOW I have bad bronchitis and layrngitis any ideas? Thanks, Serach"
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 02/07/2013: Utsava from Vancouver, Washington: "I discovered this small black tick the other day underneath my skin and that 'bullseye' rash started, that ring, all indicating the tick has lime disease. I immediately started to take Iboprophen, and when I treated the 'ring' with Oil of Oregano, over might is became half the size! I also treat it with an antibiotic cream, however, the results by using Oregona are much better. I'm also taking stuff for the immune system, such as Olive leaf extract and Royal Gelee. Also internally I'm taking alot of garlic gloves, Propolis, Oil of Oregano (5 drops in a glass) as well as Artemisia (Wormwood); all to kill the bacteria. So far I'm feeling much better and I will continue to take these remedies for the next 4 weeks, and if nessessary add antibiotics as well. I'm doing better already!"Replies

When you have just contracted Lyme disease it is very easy to eradicate with antibiotics but if you leave it too long and mess around with natural treatments you could be dealing with a chronic debilitating disease - I know! I'm treating it naturally now because I have no choice, I did long-term antibiotics after 2 years of having Lyme but I have neuro-borrealisis and it is almost impossible to get rid of and now turned to natural treatments and I've had it for more than 5 years now. Please go to an LLMD and go on a short course of antibiotics and get well. Trust me - I'm normally against antibioitics but don't mess around with this."

I am stressed to the max and in great fear. Am also in process of doing a cleanse.
What kind of collodial silver is good, what brand, and what kind of lysine. I would great appreciate any help.
04/26/2014: Dave from Fountain Inn, Sc replies: "Dear Search in Jerusalem,
Well, a good Saturday AM to you (Shabbat Shalom);
You're right in inquiring about Colloidal Silver. You will need a high parts per million solution. I make my own and if someone is going to need a lot over time (to kill lyme disease) if me, I'd consider getting a little battery generator to do so. Don't know the cost of transport overseas but well worth the 70 dollar investment. Just google "colloidal silver generator" and you'll find some suppliers. The last new one I got two years ago only cost 70 dollars. Now ... how to take it. For systemic infection I'd take orally two tablespoons three times daily five days a week, skipping Wed and Sunday to allow for other minerals to assimilate in the cellular receptors. I'd also make sure the sinus and ears are clean by irrigating with an ear syringe.
For systemic infections I'd expect to be on oral supplements of CS for six months to a year; and for the worst of infections (multiple coated viruses plus funguses and candida)...possibly years. I'd take until symptoms were gone plus would take an extra six months more to make sure all was clean.
If you suspect the viruses/fungi have invaded the spinal cord and/or the brain, I'd be using the CS plus DMSO in a poultice down spine and back of neck."

Make sure your son injestes less because of his weight. A large man can use 10 grams of salt and Vitamin C but a smaller boy should probably use 6 grams. Don't forget the water and the 'diarhea' is the herxemic reaction taking place. I found the remedy for lyme Cure from barton reports for 30 bucks. Best 30 bucks I ever spent. Best of Luck! "

[YEA] 12/18/2008: Craig from Felton, CA replies: "I did a modified version of this diet to help cure my lyme disease. 5 doctors misdiagnosed my condition and I suffered for 6 months. My medical student friend suggested I take a course of doxicycline. It took a month of daily treatment, but I was left with more energy and could now get out of bed in the morning. However It did not eliminate the flu-like symptoms I had everyday. I found the salt and Vitamin C cure for LD on the web, but didn't want to ingest all that salt. So I took 1000mg vitamin C with full VitB spectrum, 2 oz of dried wheatgrass powder, 350mg of milk thistle, and ate high salt foods instead of ingesting the salt and vitC together. It took almost two years to fully rid myself of LD, but if I knew of my approach before the illness I think I could have limited it to six months. Hope this helps. And people, keep your head up. Depression feeds lyme disease. You can get better!"
