THROUGH CHALLENGE and Lyme Disease

HEAVY METAL BURDEN

     This info is from Page 202-209
                       By Dr. Richard I. Horowitz MD.
 
   The subject in this article is HEAVY METAL BURDEN (HMB) . The chapter in Dr. Horowitzs book "Why Can't I Get Better" Environmental Toxins and Lyme, explains the possible reasons why we don't respond to known helpful remedies while some get better and some do not.

EBOLA A REPEAT PERFORMANCE

 ????? EBOLA ????? A repeat performacne ? I am sorry for being stubborn on this importing Ebola sufferers in to our Non Ebola environment. But I am an advanced Lyme sufferer and have been lied to, Just like as many of you and your infected Lyme suffering friends, children, Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers. They said there is no Lyme here or there. The infection spread and now we have an epidemic. We still have 99% of the medical community that claims they know all there is too know about Advanced Lyme disease and yet """ The medical community knows nothing about the modern version of advanced late stages of Lyme and they refuse to acknowledge it's existence until they get it.

TESTING AND EDUCATION

I was asked recently what is the correct test for Lyme testing. This is why it is important to seek an LLMD trained by ILADS (International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society) To look at the patient. My reply was:
 
That depends on the patient, how long they have been infected, How much they have been treated after the tick bite. But in most peoples cases when I have a chance to talk with them, They need a test from I-genex. This is an out of house Lab in California that basically specializes in Lyme and infectious diseases and coinfections related too lyme. There are a couple other labs but this is my favorite at this time. The in house blood labs in most of our top hospitals will not recognize lyme. They can not wrap their head around something that they think can not exist. The Lab company such as Quest or many other labs including the best hospitals I have been to will not make a diagnosis anymore without a positive test from the in house Contracted lab. This does not mean you will get a positive test. It means you should be looked at by a LLMD (Lyme Literate Medical Doctor) who usually has lyme or a very sad case of lyme at home with a family member who has been through the mainstream search for answers and found that Mainstream medicine is slow in getting the issue that lyme is a different bear than regular medicine is equipped for. Lyme is rewriting auto-immune science. As for Testing: Elisa test that most doctor (NON-LLMD's) will use as their first defense is about 35% accurate which makes it useless. Then the western Blot that doctors use for early infection is some what helpful to a point or before a person is treated for anything with antibiotics. But after a certain time even that test is not practical and then you need a western blot test from I-genex that is different from the early stage lyme test and about 99% accurate in my book. I have only heard of one negative test and then that child went on to what is called the CD57 test. The child was then found positive and is doing well with treatment. I could go on but as you can see. You can not wrap yourself around just a positive test all the time. Hope this helps.

  I have been a very busy guy with trying to get my book organized and ready to reprint, added too and properly edited. But then comes a time to take a break from the business and take a call to go talk to somebody or just get away from it all. This brings me to an experience that I had recently and it left us feeling still useful in our fight for good health.
  I was called to a home yesterday to talk about Lyme. We met 2 wonderful young people, one 78 yrs. and the other 80 I believe. Both tested positive and starting meds. and unfamiliar with the lyme life of a lyme sufferer. Linda and I meet all ages with this terrible disease. These people have been diagnosed previously with many of the ageing ailments of the elderly and just talking with them and there enthusiasm for life. You could tell they were two kids thrown out of there element. Many had them crazy or senile, wearing down from old age but I seen two people seeking quality of life for the remaining days , months, or yrs. they have left. They have clearly been through hell chasing diagnosis's and now they have a direction and goal. My wife and I felt good leaving there with an invite back.

FUTURE OF LYME

 I am beginning to see the benefits of building our depleted auto-immune systems back up. We have been dumping so much chemicals, metals and all into our bodies. I don't think there is a cure so much as a balance of nature that has been taken away by the crutch of the last 55 years. "Antibiotics" . Antibiotics has taken away the autoimmune systems stress and challenges to stay in tip top form. Unfortunately I feel we need those like Dr. Sussers expertise in ancient medicine too help right this ship if it is not too late.

LYME & COINFECTION TREATMENTS

 When treating Lyme there is really no stone hard cure or treatment for Lyme and its co-infections. And I am not a doctor but I do read the 2013 edition of LYME DISEASE and associated diseases "THE BASICS" . I am also a long time Lyme disease recoverer. There has been question of what can be used to treat Lyme and it's co-infections. I can only talk about what I read and what I have been prescribed and what has worked for me. Everybody is different and there are more mixes for different groups of infections.

In response to Dr. Susser

A century old controversy about the nature of communicable disease: microbe vs. host resistance. Does the infectious agent itself cause us to feel sick or do we succumb to illness because our immune system has been damaged?
This is an especially important question when considering Chronic Fatigue and Lyme Disease.

     Hello folks,
I have given this question some thought and hope that you can hang with me as I try to simplify this remark so that even my Lyme damaged brain can understand it.

Starving Lyme.

   Recently I had an interesting and informative conversation with a couple of readers. I asked for permission to publish this on my blog.

Basically as an advanced/ late stage Lyme sufferer. The Lyme community is learning and trying different things. When I was diagnosed and test +, I started antibiotics and continued for 7 years until new approaches were introduced to me. I started starving the Lyme from my body about a year ago a now I am trying to build the auto-immune system which in turn is helping my nervous system.
