I am really grateful to the things I have read here about lyme disease. I am grateful for people's sharing their practical experience about their anilmals health. It really calmed me down and informed me. Thank you so much for this site.

I have Lyme disease and am being treated by a Lyme doc. Please understand that you can waste precious time using unproven remedies to kill this spirochete, the Lyme bacteria. Science shows that this very slippery critter is VERY hard to get under control. It not only likes to hide out in joints, but also loves the heart, brain, and the nervous system. I was fearful of taking antibiotics, so started with a very capable naturopathic physician. Tests are important to not only verify what you have, but to check to see what other coinfections have piggybacked on to your weakened immune system. Each coinfection also has a particular way of being treated - and some of these are quite tough in their own right. You are likely to have more than just the Lyme Borrelia. I started with a ND, and later, after doing a bit of reading, chose a good Western Lyme doc, the most direct route to getting well. They are worth it - the longer you have this disease, the more challenging (and expensive) it is to come back from. I chose to go from herbal Lyme killers(cat's claw and Japanese knotweed), to antibiotics and am doing fine after 2 months. I have my brain and much of my energy back now! I think it is crucial to use probiotics alongside the antibiotics several times daily. I wish that best for everyone!

Sid. Interesting feedback you had there. Can you contact me. I suspect I have Lyme and want to start testing for it. Would like to chat with u to learn more about your experiences with testing for it. Thanks, Bill

I have done a lot of research on Lyme. I was so sure I had it I had four different tests all negative. But I want to say it is crucial that you get the right doctor and right medication early before it is deeply embedded in the body, tissues etc. because it is harder to eradicate later on.. So I think natural stuff combined with western medicine is the only way to go, but act quickly. The problem with lymes is the waiting for the antibodies to build.

Lyme Disease: I was tested 7 times by my general practitioner. It was not until I found a Lyme specialist that I was tested by Igenex and it came in positive but by then it was 2 years and I was in a chronic state. 2 years of antibiotics and naturopathic and I'm finally able to function.

Bill, thank you for the info you have given me so far. I'm sure excess ca is causing a lot of my extreme pain. But what if there is something I don't know? I've only given you the info I know so far. eg. I have lyme disease - told to me by an energetic healer - I have my reservations about them - other tests are mostly unreliable. BECAUSE I have followed your suggestions, mg citrate, enzymes, chanca piedra, vco, chlorella many of the other remedies you and Ted kindly offer.

Because the organs are all breaking down & I am truly suffering. This is my last chance.

I have neurological lyme disease and nearly died of it. Rife helped me (along with a lot of supplementing) back to life again. I read Bryan Rosner's book Lyme Disease and Rife Machines and I personally used a coil machine made my Alex Levy coilmachines dot com and I stand to benefit nothing from either of these but to offer what I have learned and what has helped me. Thanks! :)

I took GSE w/ OO for 30 days at the max dose (15 drops in water or juice twice a day) and was walking normally again after 3 days. Unfortunately, I should have done it longer since it came back 5 years later.

Lyme is a 3 stage disease. They can lie dormant for a long time and then resurrect in mutant form.

If I had the chance to do it all again, I'd would have added 1/2 tsp celtic sea salt per day to get the cysts out of their hiding in the cells, added honey for its anti-microbial enzymes to break them down, and then make sure that I'm boosting my immune system with healthy foods and detoxing at the same time. They depelete minerals so I'd up my doses of vitamins. I'd do zinc every day. Hot baths (they hate temperatures above body temperature).

It has been my unfortunate experience that Vitamin D and Zinc enable the lyme. It needs zinc in order to multiply and D to hide from the immune system.

Hi, on the instructions for using the GSE, are you mixing it with olive oil or Oil of Oregano? what does OO stand for? I'd like to try this, at present I'm on big doses of herbals (resveratrol, cat's claw, and andrographis), and would like to try this as an alternative. I'm already taking Iodoral for my thyroid. thanks

The OO stands for Oil of Oregano. The GSE w/ OO was an all in one product I purchased that most health food stores carry in their detoxing department. I wasn't able to walk before I took it and was practically normal after 3 days at the max dose. The honey I meant to say was from tea tree plants... Manuka honey. I've also tried really cheap ayurvedic amla powder from an East Indian food store that seemed to boost my immune system. Iodine gave me my energy back. But now the biggest help I'm getting is through energy medicine. I think I might be Lyme free! Only the Bartonella to kick now

Have you been checked for lyme? This disease is becoming very common and its really nasty to try and treat. As you are finding out, there are very very few doctors qualified to treat lyme correctly. Most doctors are less than useless when it comes to deadly diseases like this. You must study and become an expert yourself. Not much choice about this one.

The first contact of anyone having this disease was in the old town of Lyme, right across from Plum Island Animal Research Center.. Plum Island Disease, oh I mean lyme disease is a multi-bug stew of some of the finest nasty organisms money can buy. Ones that take great pride in waging war on mankind. You gotta love em 'because they are sooo good at what they do, they are a billionth of our size and they are beating us!.

Hhhhmmm, not for long! if you do find you got a lyme infection you will quickly learn what a battle is all about! so let's start kicking their little behinds!.

First off, you need good information. a hallmark signature is denial. We know nothing. Your disease does not exist. Go home and take your psyche meds. Just a few short years ago doctors were telling us there is no such disease as lyme disease. hmmm, they said that with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome too. Seems they are saying it right now with morgellons..

Well, regardless of all else now the task comes of stopping the bugs in this bug stew. Each one of the various organisms must be addressed. Leave one out, forget to treat it and you wont be cured..

The best total treatment programs are all off shore. therefore pack your toothbrush in a bsl-4 toothbrush holder since its hazardous and go to mexico for a health treatment vacation. The treatment of choice is called extra corporal blood oxgenation and ozonation eboo for short. This highly advanced state of the art medical technique does not exist for Americans since our medical freedom is rapidly dwindling away..

Other forms of ozone therapy that are less powerful and less effective can be commonly found but not eboo..

What is eboo? It is like this, think of a kidney dialysis machine with a twist, one that draws blood out of the body, runs it through filters then sterilizes the blood by filling it with oxygen in a highly germ killing form called ozone. No virus ever found can withstand blood ozonation. It fries even the most aggressive of virus or cancer cells in seconds. Many who have a serious disease like hiv, ebola, cancer, lyme have recovered in less than 2 months..

As for lyme treatment, regular physicans are less than useless. chronic lyme? we never heard of it. it says here lyme only takes two weeks of antibiotic then if you think yourself not cured it must be your imagination.. Yeah right, lyme is a lifelong disease unless you learn how to defeat it..

To attack a lyme infection, you gotta do everything right or the bug is gonna win. You got to follow an anticancer / antiviral diet. you got to use blood sterilization techniques such as eboo or if it is not available other blood ozonation techniques or uvbi. ultraviolet blood irradiation works quickly to destroy harmful microorganisms in the blood that your immune system cant get rid of..

You got to eat tons of coconut oil as it is antifungal and antiviral and spread it on your skin as it absorbs through the skin. Certain types of virus like hep-c and hiv are lipid envelope virus. Medium chain fatty acids found in coconut oil act like detergent on them weakening their cell wall..

Now, the same bug that causes innumerable problems, mycoplasma fermentans, is found front and center along with his little buddies in lyme. I post frequently about mr "mike o plasma" as he is a very accomplished microorganism. Je should be in the germ hall of fame for having created the most weird symptoms from the same organism. You can go to a doctor and he says you have ten different diseases when really you have one bug with many symptoms..

The way to give mr mike o plasma an eviction notice is with doxycycline like dr garth nicholson mentions taking, plus serrapeptase a systemic enzyme that attacks a wide range of pathogenic organisms found in the blood..

Serrapeptase eats biofilm. Lyme disease hides in biofilm. Without serrapeptase you will never be free from lyme or anything else as biofilm will act as a reservoir for the germs to hide from the immune system..

When germs are attacked they run and hide in their little biofilm fortress. There they are 1000 fold more antibiotic resistant. Doctors who foolishly throw antibiotics at a biofilm ridden patient waste their time. The biofilm dwelling germs just wait for their opportunity to attack another day..

A really cheap thing that helps tremendously for lyme is mms chlorine dioxide.aNd mms-2 look both of them up.

Mms-2 creates a different chemical hypochlorus acid which is one of the most lethal germ killers known to science. The immune system is able to make a wide variety of germ killing chemicals to defeat various types of microbial threat.

Hypochlorus acid is one of the most potent if not thee most potent germ fighter known. you probably have heard of swimming pool shock right? well believe it or not the immune system knows how to make the same chemical. Thats right your body knows how to make a microscopic amount of hypochlorus acid aka swimming pool shock. hows that for shocking?

See jim humble for details mms-2.

This stuff only costs about 30 bucks but it is worth about 30 million if you are suffering from lyme etc.

Another thing so new you won't find much info on it is gallium nitrate. this stuff will soon be your best friend since it is able to stop mycoplasma and a huge number of pathogenic nasty beasties associated with lyme.. I consider it as absolutely essential in lyme treatment.

The mycoplasma element in lyme can also be attacked by blood electrification one of the cheapest yet very strong methods for lyme treatment. The vast majority of lyme sufferers discover blood electrification only after long years of misery from other lymies. This treatment is hot! it works.and you need to become an expert with blood electrification devices.

Do not expect a cure by chemical means alone, blood electrification is an essential part of a total treatment program and doctors will never tell you about it..

In a nut shell here is the gig. Virus and other vicious beasties found in a lymies blood do not like to be electrified.

It gives them an attitude adjustment in a hurry!

Viruses depend on surface proteins to develop adhesion molecules by which to attach to a cell they wish to infect. When their protein coating is disrupted by electrification or by attack with systemic enzymes like serrapeptase they become unable to infect cells thus they die out and you get your life back.

This principle works with many other virus types such as hiv or hep-c and cancer cells.

Now both methods are very much needed enzymes plus blood electrification for best results.

Enzymes are expensive but blood electrifiers like a bob beck unit etc are a one time investment so it ends up being the cheapest option where chronic disease is concerned.

The spirochetes in lyme don't like enzymes chewing away at them and they dont like a too salty environment. some people have killed off the parasites with almost dangerously high amounts of salt plus vitamin c but its not without risk. salt is hard on your kidneys.but lyme is even harder.

Education will set you free, study and regain your health..

Hope this helps. See ya

Ps cancer tutor has good info on lyme disease.


Please can you suggest which electrification device works best? Ultimate zapper? I am desperate. I tried hydrogen peroxide food grade for 5 weeks and couldn't take another day ( although my symptoms were tolerable except for the twitches). I quit and started Himalayan salt and C and it was ok for a few days, but now the pains are taking over and something is growing in my eye, but no body twitches. In only a few days, I have gone downhill fast ...and I only contracted this in August this year. I am on a long wait list to see a lyme specialist for the igenex test and antibiotics. Until then, serrapeptase, but it doesn't cover the pain at all. The salt is covering some pain but not for long and I am worried it made this thing grow in the white of my eye. I am alone and afraid and have no support of any kind. I had toxic mold exposure that left me hyper sensitive to mould....maybe compromised immune system is why this is attacking me so hard. It makes Morgellons look like a walk in the park.....TED from this site saved my life with simple borax for that. How can Lyme be so much worse. I cant take it anymore.

HI YA'LL DOIN,,,,,,,,, late to this series, but watched one program and now convinced that owning this program is equivalent to having the cancer program we bought a few years ago.

So I bought the entire program. What got my attention is Lyme almost always infects the brain and the MD I watched got into this accidentally by treating kids with mental problems. He learned that almost all had one of the Lyme problems.

I was told that Plum Island, where the US developed all their germ warfare bugs, is just across the bay from Lyme, Conn. Imagine that? The facility has now been moved to Kansas. Can mark that state off as a place to live or visit.

As POGO, the possum said, " WE HAVE MET THE ENEMY, AND HE IS US".

If you are suggesting that Plum Island is in anyway related to Lyme disease, you should read about the history of Lyme. The Native Americans in Manouck near Lyme Connecticut would refer to Manouck knee around 1880's. Ozzi the Iceman, found in the Italian Swiss Alps 20 years ago, died there 5000 years ago and.. had Borrelia burgdorferi. This invisible affliction has been with humans for millennia.

I use different protocols that I create it myself! Because you have to use different methods because the little buggers know or learn and then create their own immune system. MMS from Jim humbles works, Will not go without it. Also Silver. I also use Hydrogen peroxide 35% food grade, the manuka honey, and Essiac tea, Holy Basil tea, DMSO, I do take my vitamin D3. B12 is also very important also borax. Coconut oil Turmeric and cats claw And grapefruit seed abstract, etc and etc . I also give my body two days a week rest! Everything I do I take my time with it. I don't overdose. I don't take everything once that's why I created protocols.

There's also an oil that you could take to bring them out to also try and kill them, And Rife machine and so on! I have no Immunity against lyme. I actually could go on and on!

Thank you.

I was bitten 7 weeks ago and having horrendous pains. I didn't want to take antibiotics so I'm taking hydrogen peroxide food grade and stevia and serrapeptase and mimosa pudica. I feel some relief. Should I take antibiotics? If so, what kind and dose? Is there a clinic in Mexico you would recommend. Due to a deathly mould allergy, I'm afraid to travel almost anywhere humid, but I'm terrified this bug will be horrendous. I battled morgellons a few years ago and won with borax thanks to ted.... seemed like a bad science fiction novel but nothing compared to this pain.... and it's only just begun.

Hi Diane,

You can take Vitamin c Crysals up to 10,000mg or more. You need to check how much vitamin you need. You take your first doze, wait for 20mins and take second doze. Do this until you have to go to bathroom and then you learn about your body how much you need. Once you find it out how much vitamin c you need everyday, you can take that doze everyday. Once your body started to repair you don't need high doze. Your body will tell you and you can keep continue taking until you have to go to bowel tolerance. If vitamin c Crystals is hard for your stomach then you can also take Buffered Vitamin c that is easy for the stomach.

Vitamin c is very expensive but if you can take vitamin c at home it really helps.

In June of this year I was bitten by a flea removing a dead rodent from the property. A month later (after bloodwork) I was diagnosed with Lymes Disease. The antibiotic they put me on required me to stop breastfeeding. It was traumatic and the medicine made me very ill. After 4 day and 6 pills later, I quit.

I decided to treat the Lymes as a parasite, rather than a bacteria. I used my zapper for four days until the medicine was out of my system, and went back to breastfeeding.

Heat has been my best friend ever since. Hot drinks, hot weather, hot spices, I am having great luck with cayenne, garlic and ginger. Am heading to the store now for coconut and almonds. Anything with heat, folks, will kill your Lyme parasites. I was at the point where my arms and legs no longer functioned, I couldn't hold my children and I couldn't form a cohesive sentence. Heat, heat, heat!!!

Replied by Shelby

Thought I'd give an update -

Last night I had extra spicy Chinese, and then drank a (tea) mixture of turmeric, cayenne, ginger, cinnamon and coconut oil. Just threw it together and got it down.

A few hours later, a very thorough clean out (bm). Today I feel great! I keep craving the coconut, I am very convinced the Lyme has a co-infection of parasites, and to really get on the road to recovery, removal of the parasites is a must. I really should get some pumpkin seeds to help with this.

At any rate, since I am unable to do my zapper (breastfeeding baby and unsure about passing bad stuff along) I am doing the heat and the anti parasite. I highly recommend the zapper as #1 defense, but I will personally have to hold off and work with food until baby is weaned.

Hulda Clark Zapper

Lyme can be cured, and the earlier you do so, the better.

The summer before last, my wife found a tick that had been attached to her for some time. then she got the classic bullseye rash of Lyme disease. She became extremely sick, lots of pain all over. She went from her normal high intelligence and being very articulate to being in a fog, unable to think, to remember, to finish a sentence she started.

Being extremely worried, I began searching online. I found where some actress I'd never heard of (not being up on current popular culture) who lived near Lyme, Connecticut, caught Lyme disease. Having had it for about a year and a half, she was in terrible shape. The standard antibiotic treatment had not worked for her. Reluctantly, she allowed a friend to drag her to a chiropractor's office, where she was treated with a Hulda Clark zapper.

Now, we have owned and used one for many years, and it has worked to rid us of various bugs that were going around. In those cases we did the normal protocol. You hold a copper handle with a damp tissue wrapped around it, 1 in each hand (or stick 1 down each sock, to leave your hands free), and connect the 9 volt battery to the zapper. For 7 minutes it runs a very weak DC current through you, which you likely will not feel, or maybe very slightly. Pause 20 minutes, zap again 7 minutes, pause 20 minutes, zap a third time 7 minutes. You are done.

For Lyme the chiropractor had this actress zap for 7 minutes every 20 minutes for 4 hours straight. She felt no different. The next morning she felt great! She was told to come back in 10 days and repeat the above treatment. She did and has been fine ever since. Out of 16 friends she had do this later, the only one who failed to get well had had Lyme for over 10 years, and had too much irreversible damage, alas.

I sat my wife down and timed the treatment for her. Next day she felt fine. Repeated 10 days later. She has been fine ever since.

You can buy zappers online. Spend one or two hundred bucks if you want, but we use the $15 kind (it cost 10 originally! ) and it works great. Somebody bench-tested one of those, and it fit Hulda Clark's original parameters the best of all, anyway. Or look up the plans and make your own, if you have the skills. The first one we owned was made by a friend of a friend, and it's circuit board was set in a tupperware container!

Hydrogen Peroxide

Posted by Bb (North America) on 12/05/2015
5 out of 5 stars

About 8 months ago, I received the alarming diagnosis that Lyme Disease had been found in four of my organs. I had traveled to see a well known alternative doctor in South Florida and, regrettably was not able to return for follow-up visits. I did, however, agree with the diagnosis and was having terrible brain fog, emotional issues, lapses in memory and chronic diseases. I later found another alternative doctor who prescribed hydrogen peroxide therapy and another product. There was rapid improvement in my mind and body but I've had to quit the product because it aggravated my IBS symptoms.

The hydrogen peroxide baths and taking it internally have done miraculous things for me.

Here is the protocol for Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy using 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide: HP baths: ( 1 to 2 cups of HP in warm water for 20 minutes 2 times a week. Oral HP. Begin with 1 drop of HP 3 times a day, gradually increased to 25 drops 3 times a day.

It is essential to use spring or rain water for the baths. City water or other treated water is NOT recommended and is counter productive. Because I couldn't find options, I did try one bath in city water but it aggravated my eczema. I live in Tennessee and I have a TRUE friend who is willing to have me come to her house to bath in her spring water twice a week. I have not been able to make my visits due to schedule conflicts and now I am hurting again from the Fibromyalgia and other joint pain, although the brain fog is still much better.

Note: I always precede the oral treatment with a bit of crystalized ginger as it can cause gas and sometimes a little nausea. I also use plenty of moisturizer (coconut oil) following the baths to avoid dry skin.

I am leaving for a few months to care for my mother, but I will have to find a way to take a bath in purified city water. I have a large shower in my mother's house but I have to be creative. I am thinking I will purchase a small cattle water tub to use in the shower area. I will use prill beads to purify the city water then heat that water with a water tank heater like farmers would use, or a with crock pot beside the tub. I don't want to make the water too hot as it may diminish the effects of the hydrogen peroxide. The tub will need to be portable but not metal as prill beads ( magnesium oxide) can be corrosive.

There is lots on the internet on Prill beads.

My sister has been bitten by a tick and has Lymes Disease. Has anyone had success with H2O2 and Lymes Disease?

Replied by Michael M
Jupiter, Florida, USA

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, [email protected] 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 Tell them Michael sent you. If you wish to talk to me, ask them to contact me.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Lugol's Iodine

I just want to say first of all that I have never had Lyme disease but I have been using Lugol's iodine for years and when I feel the onset of the flu I use a protocol put forward by Dr. Stephen Fisher who used iodine to cure malaria and influenza in Zambia and has years of experience using it for those reasons. I tried his protocol but was scared at first because the most iodine I have ever consumed in one sitting was about 8 vertical drops of Lugol's 5%. I read more about it and discovered that taking his protocol is perfectly safe as he was using it on individuals who never supplemented with iodine.

The protocol for flu is 20 drops four times a day for 1 day and the following 2 days 10 drops four times a day. When I was sick I was unable to get out of bed pretty much, sick as you can be without being hospitalized. I started the protocol and completed the first day, I went to sleep and the following day I was 99% better, had energy, was up and about, no more headaches, appetite returned. All that remained was my secondary infections (sinus mostly). I used a neti pot to get rid of my sinus infection and continued my day 2 of the iodine protocol just in case. It cured my flu! Since then I have used it several times to cure my flu and it works every single time.

Now regarding Lyme, this is caused by a bacterial infection, influenza is viral. Both bacteria and viruses cannot survive lugol's iodine, it's not even a close battle. If I was diagnosed with Lyme I would uses this influenza iodine protocol and feel very confident it can cure you. Why the medical community refuses to look at non pharma solutions is beyond me but I think this can really help people. If I had Lyme disease I would do the protocol and then wait 1-2 weeks and do it again until the bacteria was gone from my system and I felt much better. At proper dosage and duration I truly believe Lyme can be eradicated from your system. I hope this helps some people who have seemingly tried everything.

Lyme Disease:

I've been researching this crazy illness for years and through the hard work of others have uncovered some truths about this disease which almost put me in a wheelchair.

First, killing the adult spirochetes in blood stream is easy but they have found that immediately when stressed these parasites either morph into dormant spheres and are covered in biofilm made up of polysacharides and protein. These spheres are hard to kill and antibiotics are mildly helpful to these persisters. Pulse dosing is better than steady dosing. Combination antibiotics are better than single bullet.

They found that .05 percent clove, cinniamon, oregano oils are better than antibiotics, Selenium and sulfur are helpful upon biofilm too. Some people do enzymes like serapeptase or EDTA . However, the other part to this equation is the fact that these spirochetes actually infest and hide in your red blood cells. Attaching microscopic evidence that is shocking but helpful. I am in remission now and my blood samples have zero spirochetes. I used a the only patented Lyme treatment in the world. It is ionized copper. To watch this copper do its thing is amazing to watch.

For anyone suffering with Lyme disease – this is what cured me.

I suffered with Lyme, it's co-infections, and toxic metal poisoning for over 30 years (toxic metals like mercury are common with long-term Lyme). I was bitten at least 40 times growing up in Connecticut. I have taken many kinds of antibiotics and done many forms of chelation none of which ever cured me. They helped, but never cured. What finally did it was drinking Himalayan salt and vitamin C on an empty stomach every day and taking NBMI (Boyd Haley). The herx's are brutal and so I almost quit especially the one around the 9 to 11 month point, but I'm glad I pushed through. After 12 months I stopped feeling symptoms altogether.

It's been a little over two years on Salt/C and now I'm at the point where I can stop the treatment. I make EDTA suppositories and take it at night 80 mins before bed. I wait 60 mins and then take an NBMI suppository and go to bed. I have not found any chelator as powerful/effective as NBMI and I've tried them all. There are many other things I do like the baking soda protocol (most effective candida killer I've found especially from taking all those antibiotics through the years) and the liver/gallbladder flush from Andreas Moritz. I have done around 30 of them and passed thousands of stones.

It thereby unblocked my liver and it's pathways (what a difference it makes!). Now when I do a flush – no stones come out. I also find drinking magnesium chloride every morning on an empty stomach extremely helpful (at night before bed is good too). Drinking all this salt- you should monitor your kidneys, but from what I've read problems only arise in about 5% of the population. I also believe drinking it on an empty stomach is important. I have no food 2 hours prior and no food an hour after. In the beginning I did this 3 to 4 times a day.After a few months I only did it once or twice a day. After the big 9/11 month herx- I have only been doing it once a day in the morning. After 30+ years of suffering horribly there is no doubt this fully cured me.

I find that taking the amino acids – Lysine, Glycine, Glutamine, and Threonine on an empty stomach also very helpful. I also take a high quality whey protein (on an empty stomach) every day to raise the glutathione levels. I take many other vitamins – ones that Dr. Mercola has been recommending for a long time (Krill oil, Astaxanthin, Vitamin B complex, etc). I also bought tanning beds for Vitamin D. For sleep – I find that the combination of l-theanine, lithium orotate, melatonin, and ashwagandha works great. I also take organic whole husk psyllium and apple cider vinegar about 20 minutes before a meal. I make my own fermented veggies and sometimes whole fat yogurt for probiotics.

It's important to know the difference of a water soluble vitamin and a fat soluble one. Water soluble needs no food 2 to 3 hours prior and 1 full hour after, so morning after waking up is an ideal time. Fat soluble should be taken with food/fat/oil for maximum absorption. I find most people don't know this, but it's very important. If you've ever taken a B-complex vitamin and later your urine was a funky color- you had food to close to taking it and you just expelled most of all the nutrients. Taking it on an empty stomach will yield the proper results. I also oil-pull for a half hour every morning prior to eating as well.

Another common symptom of Lyme is constipation. Make sure you're going at least once a day. If you're having trouble- drink enough Salt/C and magnesium chloride and you'll go. Either that or do an enema/colonic.

Lyme also really messes with your hormones. Look into Bio-Identical hormone therapy especially if you're over 35. I make my own DHEA/Pregnenolone suppositories and I also take progesterone almost daily. Women should look into estrogen as well. I take hormone holidays just like Dr. Mercola talks about. Your thyroid is another gland that will often be affected by Lyme, so I highly recommend eating seaweed every day. I eat a 1/2 teaspoon of bladderwrack every day with food.

I also like using a far-infrared sauna (I built my own using Dr. Wilson's guidelines online) every two days and drinking essiac tea prior (bulk-essiac organic) on an empty stomach. I also drink some organic black coffee while in the sauna because I find it makes me sweat much more, but some people may not be able to tolerate this. I remember prior to doing my liver flushes I was unable to drink coffee at all- it used to make me feel terrible. I drink lots of water in the sauna- you can buy reverse osmosis systems very inexpensively now. I add some Himalayan salt and little baking soda to the water to remineralize it. I also sometimes add a pinch of borax to help remove fluoride. I recommend the borax protocol as well.

Intermittent fasting was also a big one. I do this almost every day. I choose to do it in the morning, so I can have a social life at night- plus it ties in with all my other protocols for the morning. Many people also recommend Cat's Claw, which I also took during all this time as a water-soluble supplement every day, but I don't believe it did much. Salt/C along with everything else was very apparent to be working.

There's no doubt everything else I spoke about has a profound healing effect.

Taking Diatomaceous Earth every day was also helpful. When I first started taking it- I could feel parasites moving out of my intestines.

I highly recommend reading more here on and

How much salt and vit C did you take each time? And regarding the amino acids you mentioned (lysine, glycine, threonine, etc)- how many mg of each, and were they taken a separate times or all together?

I've used a combination of 2 detox protocols to cure candida AND Lymes. YES!! it is curable.

I want to say at the outset, I believe it requires at least a commitment of a year for this reason. Candida leaves spores in the body that bloom at change of season. So while you may be feeling great after 3 months, pesky little spores may bloom, and you are revisited by the symptoms that you had just seen leave. Anything fungal will include parasites. And parasites leave eggs and larvae. They burrow and hide. For those reasons, I wanted to do a year minimum. And I will do a refresher once or twice annually for the remainder of my time here. 🙂

The first detox was a change of food which can become a lifestyle change if you wish. Or once finished you can return to a menu with more variety. The most important thing is to avoid ALL processed foods, and all non-organic food, all GMO food, and all pasteurized foods.

(Pasteurized foods are those that can be rich in probiotics building a strong healthy microbiome, if only they weren't literally “cooked to death”. Pasteurization heats the food to 165 degrees or above to kill off any bad bacteria–AND all the good (probiotic) bacteria! Before pasteurization, wine and cheese were full of probiotics. That helps the pounds from packing on! Make your own (once you're all healed), and enjoy these foods guilt-free.

By the way, do not use probiotic supplements. There are thousands of strains of probiotics, and in the very best probiotic supplements, which by the way are PROCESSED, have at most only a dozen strains, and have been found to be of very little help. Dr. Mercola did a study on homemade sauerkraut (EASY) vs. the best of all probiotic supplements.

The results? One spoonful of homemade sauerkraut gives you more probiotics than an entire bottle of probiotic supplements.

Meat can be ok if it is pasture-fed, given no antibiotics or growth hormones. It's more expensive than standard meat, but not as expensive as hospital bills to treat illnesses that rob you of your health and life. Interestingly, if you haven't learned yet, antibiotics are a huge problem and given out far too often (to humans), creating these fungal/candida/Lymes problems. Even worse, 80% of all antibiotics produced in America are given to our animals that are raised for food. You may be avoiding antibiotics, but if you buy standard meat or milk, you're getting more there than if you took a dose yourself!

Two natural antibiotics are: 1) Colloidal silver, and 2) a combination of 3 essential oils: (Put into an empty capsule, 5 drops On-Guard, 5 drops Mellaleuca (Tea Tree Oil), and 3 drops of Oregano). Take up to 4 times daily.

The opposite of Pasteurized is RAW. Make sure you read labels before buying anything. Even health foods like RAW Kombucha are being developed differently than if you made it at home. And many supplements are the worst offenders. Look at “other ingredients”. If you don't recognize the long words you're reading, do you really want to put it in your body?! Companies get away with a lot using “natural flavors”, which may or may not be anything close to natural.

The food detox was created by a doctor in the 1940's and 1950's, primarily first for tubuerculosis (skin, lung, etc), and then shifted focus to cancer and any other chronic illness. When you heal, you heal everything.

Nice side note: Within the first several weeks or couple of months all of the bumps on the back of my arms went away. Sleep, which had not been good, became AMAZING. And any calloused/crusty spots on the bottom of my feet went away on their own. I had NO idea all of these things were due to toxins in my body.

This particular detox is not a brand, so I think I can mention the name. It's just a book or a documentary that teaches you EXACTLY how to eat for 2 years. You buy or grow your own food. It's the Gerson Therapy and involves juicing, coffee enemas, eating oatmeal, and fruits and vegetables (as much as you want–seriously I was never hungry and extra weight fell off easily).

It detoxes every organ of your body. You follow it for 18 months to 2 years–which is the length of time required to completely regenerate the liver, one of our most major detox organs– if you're reversing/curing cancer or a chronic illness. When you do the detox, it does become a lifestyle, although when you've completed it, you will likely add in other healthy, non-toxic foods (organic, non-GMO, non-processed and not pasteurized) and continue a couple of weeks of detox annually, the rest of your life. You really can't get sick eating this way, don't feel deprived, and really feel great.

*NOTE: Since I had severe systemic candida, as well as Lymes, I couldn't handle the homemade (delicious–not gross like what you buy at the store) carrot juice. I stuck with green juice only and couldn't even tolerate fruit. Within 6 months, I was able to eat fruit! And that's with a very severe case of these. I had been bedridden for 10 years.


Because we fight so many more toxins today, I added a fungal (candida, lymes, mold, morgellons, bacteria, virus, etc) component to my life that is so simple. Many companies are now producing supplements from the Mimosa Pudica plant. Anytime you have anything fungal in your body (if you've ever taken antibiotic, birth control pills or steroids–top 3 causes of disruption of our intestinal flora–or if you have chronic symptoms or illnesses–allergies, cancer, skin conditions, ALS, IC, IBS, MS, fibromyalgia, chronic infections or colds, etc), parasites accompany, which is a good thing.

They “carry” the highly toxic fungal material so that you're able to detox without off-the-chart die-off. I've had systemic candida for 20+ years, and had never found a cure. (MP is part of the cure. Heavy metals, including any in your teeth, must also be removed.) Also it's great to know that these fungal issues are one of the most common root causes of any chronic illness.

The seed of the MP plant is the first step of the cleanse. The cleanse cures all things fungal, and in my body, for 8 months, I unloaded parasites non-stop 2-4 cups (up to 1 litre) daily. I had no idea I had any parasites. But the parasites sop up all the fungal stuff out of your small intestines (and the rest of your body, and all your organs), and eliminate them via the colon.

The MP seed gets gelotinous when wet, and grabs and adheres to anything in the small and large intestines and drags them out. Since the parasites and its contents aren't killed, there is little to no die-off. (Candida alone has 90 different mycotoxins). It had felt like I could get die-off just thinking about a cleanse. Ha! Was amazed when I was able to use this MP supplement (which many companies are making) and never have one drop of die-off. I did use coffee enemas as I was accustomed to them, but don't know if I needed them.

I was fortunate to find a company that produced an MP supplement that is very high quality. Organic, non-GMO, no excipients or fillers. (The founder of the company was a naturopathic doctor who himself struggled with Lymes for more than a decade.) They have a great protocol outlined, with other supporting supplements for those who need to clear their detox pathways, etc, and offer a free online Q&A session every week. I have learned so much. Search on Amazon or google to find any Mimosa Pudica supplement.

Lastly, I'd feel remiss if I didn't mention that there is no need (and in fact it is a waste of time and money) to be tested for candida, lymes, parasites, mold or anything else. These things can be in all areas of the body, and even a cultured stool test may not find parasites that reside in areas of the body that tests have no access to.

Also, most tests only look for a few of the thousands of parasites and pathogens exists. I passed every magazine or online candida test I took–looked like I was in perfect health. I was finally tested for candida 5 years ago, and while the blood test I took the very same week as the stool test I did, the blood test returned a negative result, but the stool test confirmed what I had suspected for 20 years–a very severe, systemic infection. Most lab tests will return false negatives.

Btw, everyone has yeast candida. It's part of a healthy microbiome. It's when the candida morphs from its healthy yeast form into its fungal form, that it becomes problematic.

Your comment has so much great information.

Organic food is also very important because the glyphosate-based weedkillers are also an antibiotic. I was in the hospital for a week in August of 2019 with Lyme meningitis and was on a strong antibiotic through a PICC for one month. It happened eight months after suddenly losing my sister to a heart attack. I've read that this kind of loss can also set cause Lyme that's been in a body to become very active, I have no idea how long I had Lyme in my system. One year before that I began eating a strict Keto and IF diet for six months. I did it for severe depression/stress, lupus and ptsd (both began when I was 10/11, I'm now 58). After I learned that we have more Serotonin in our gut and it communicates with the Serotonin in our brain, I realized how important the gut really is. The diet heals the body, weight loss is a great side effect; I was amazed with all of the changes that began after just one week; the lupus symptoms were going away as well as my eye floaters, more energy, the severe stress and depression went away, the bumps on the back of my arms, my sinuses were cleared, and so much more; it also reverses type II diabetes. Much like the Gerson Therapy, people are now eating a struck Keto & IF to treat cancer.

My big mistake was taking a 'break' for the Christmas/New Year holiday season. Decades of abuse to a body takes a long time to repair. Adding the chronic lyme has become horrible, and three weeks ago I was in my yard, was bit by another tick and I began having the horrible effects of first getting Lyme disease. My doctor put me on 3 weeks of Doxycyclne, but after one week I stopped. I know it will only destroy my gut, which I'm trying to repair. I'm back on Keto & IF and I researched MMS and am going to try that. Thank you for the information on the Mimosa Pudica supplement. I believe that will help clean my gut. I found a place nearby that sells raw dairy; I'm also making my own sauerkraut. Garlic and oregano are a must. Keto & IF are now my eating lifestyle.

Thank you so much for sharing all that you did.

I believe I have had lyme disease (ld) for 4 years. The test from Igenex said I came in contact with the disease although I can't get a firm diagnosis, at least not from any doctor here. I never had the rash but I have a bruise on my back that I've had for at least two and a half years now. I had a lot of the symptoms attributed to ld following a night where I woke up with flu like symtoms. Since then I've been to Jamaica and was bit by sand fleas. These bites come and go. I don't know if that's because of the lyme or not. I am currently taking pre and probiotics, enzyme supplements, omega 3, b12, d3, and I recently started sarsapirilla, cat's claw and lysine. If anyone has any other suggestions I would really appreciate them. The biggest problem I have right now is inflammation in my joints.

I have been battling inflammation in my joints, especially my spine and ribs, since the birth of my son 9 years ago. I have tried many things, with moderate improvement, but once I started taking Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking soda I noticed an immediate and noticeable improvement. I'm still taking my other stuff ... curcumin (good for lyme), minerals, especially Magnesium and boron (good for arthritis). I take gelatin (building block of joints and tendons) in my green tea (antioxidant) so there could be a cumulative affect.

However, I noticed the biggest improvement after adding ACV and BS. Oh, I recently ordered some liposomal vit C, after seeing the segment on 60 minutes about the guy from New Zealand who they wanted to unplug life support and vit C brought him back from the dead. I haven't gotten it yet, but want it to combat that new respiratory virus that is so bad. Let me see if I can find the link. here it is..

Hi Anne. I would check into MSM ( Methylsulphonylmethane ) Powder. This sometimes helps with joint pain. You may want to read up on here ( EC ) about the use of Borax ( 20 mule team ) in laundry aisle, as well.

For treatment, I think all the testing for this or that microbe is a waste of time. In the end, you just know there is some infection but never be entirely sure what infections. Testing won't catch all the infections either. They have been coming out with a new and improved Lyme testing for decades. The best approach is treat ones body as a black box and apply the antidote then see if there is improvement. Maybe one test that could yield something is testing ones excrement for parasites etc.

I would focus on the real reason for that bruising symptom. if you have dark skin, it is possible a rash could look like a bruise. Maybe you got vitamin K or C deficiency. This requires detective work. Do you have any neurological symptoms like brain fog etc. There are a subset of people who exhibit flu like symptoms in CFS. There really isn't enough information in your post for me to make any determination.

Inflammation in your joints says you do have an infection of some type attacking your joints. You haven't really clarified where that inflammation of the joints is. Which joints. There are remedies to this.

If you have any type of arthritis, there is a real possibility you have mycoplasm infection. Borax protocol or antibiotic protocol using minocin (not generic minocycline) may address this especially if it is rheumatoid arthritis but they can address many other chronic diseases.

The problem with neutralizing mycoplasm infections (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis) is that the remedies above may not work completely if there are other infections in ones body that need addressing. For instance, if systemic fungal infections is present, that too may have to be addressed.

To help hold the line against damage in the joints, I do know Biocell (HA/Collagen) formula has a good chance of working. There may be other brands but I am not familiar with them. The key is how well it absorbs.

Rib inflammation would likely be what they call costochondritis. 70% of people with fms have that. It is usually most painful when you wake up in the morning. Biocell will improve it along with joints and spinal problems. You have a major infection in your body. I would look into the borax and minocin (not generic minocycline).

I think anyone with a chronic disease should go to and read the section on how to heal rheumatoid arthritis. It illustrates why one can't just focus in on one infection.

Thank you for the info here. I'm trying to research all I can. I do have olive colored skin (bruise on my back). After waking up in the middle of the night with flu-like symptons, the next morning I couldn't pick up a cup of coffee with my right wrist (pain). I also had the following symptons, stiff neck, sore jaw {right side}, ringing in my ear, both knees were swollen, a zapping pain in my left ankle that would shoot up my leg, and a burning sensation in my right elbow.

I couldn't stand for the pain in my feet. (just listing some of my symptons) This went on for months. Tests for rheumatoid arthritis were negative. Neurological tests showed an irritation in my right elbow. I can't even tell you how many tests I had all showing everything to be normal.

The only thing that's ever shown in blood test is the contact with lyme diseaseI started seeing a chiropractor and he has helped me a great deal. I have also seen three naturopathic doctors. Everything the last ND gave me made me worse. He was treating me for thyroid disease. And now I'm on my own. I no longer have the pain I initially had, although it occasionally comes back. Medical doctors tell me I have rheumatoid arthritis. (Even though tests showed negative) Although they can't explain my other symptons. I still have the ringing in my ear and inflammation in my knees. Bee pollen has really helped with the inflammation. But it doesn't get rid of it.

Replied by Prioris

You have some infections of some kind. You may never know definitively what that infection is. You didn't mention cognitive symptoms so I don't think it is lyme disease. The symptoms wouldn't seem like a thyroid thing either.

The inflammation in knees could be rheumatoid arthritis. Your feet could hurt too. Mycoplasma infection has been associated with that. Try the borax protocol. Minocin (not generic minocycline) would be the next thing.

The shocks in legs and burning would be a type of peripheral neuropathy. Look into benfotiamine, sublingual b12, stabilized R alpha lipoic acid.

The way you go about improving your health is by hypothesizing something and trying an antidote.

Inflammation from all causes involves certain cytokines (chemical messengers). Some simple herbal blockades of inflammation I have found very useful are Nettle, Frankincense, Chinese Skullcap, Safflower petals, ginger root, Turmeric with a little black pepper, celery seed extract (homemade with Vodka) and borage oil with either wild fish oil or grass-fed beef fat (can be kept frozen).
