Candida (technically called Candida albicans) is a microorganism in the category of yeast, fungi and mold. It is normal for it to live in small amounts in the digestive system and on other body surfaces. However, under certain circumstances it will invade into deeper tissues and organs where it doesn’t belong, such as the liver and kidneys, and become very abundant. Once it gets that far, it entrenches itself as fungi do. The yeast produces certain chemicals and affects cell functions in ways that create many symptoms, some of which can become serious. The term “Candida” refers to the general overgrowth of various fungi and yeasts in the body, which flourish under certain circumstances to the point of causing illness. Candida albicans appears to be the most prominent of these microbes. Candida and Lyme share a LOT of symptoms.
What are biofilms? Biofilms are protective communities where various forms of the Lyme bacteria can hide from prescriptive antibiotics, herbal antimicrobials, and the immune system. In chronic Lyme and associated diseases they can cause treatment resistance and relapse once antibiotics or herbal antimicrobials are stopped. In biofilms bacteria produce and cover themselves in a layer of slime composed of mucopolysaccharides.
Too much stress or fearful negative thinking can actually play a big part in disease formation and in recovery. This mind body connection is often overlooked in modern medical treatments. Often doctors treat patients for chronic conditions that start out fairly mild but evolve into more serious conditions, but can become worse because negative emotions affect your health. This may seem far-fetched, but the body becomes vulnerable to germs and viruses when the immune system becomes impaired.
Bio-Photon Coherency Therapy assists the body's immune system to function at optimum levels, which enables the body to heal itself. The therapy utilises a series of instruments capable of measuring light emissions from acupuncture points, using fibre-optic cables and crystal electrodes. Once these light emissions or vibrations have been located the readings are fed into the system, which is fully equipped with therapy programmes based on common symptoms of other patient’s experiences.
Hormones are powerful chemical messengers that circulate through your bloodstream to specific target cells where they generate a wide range of biological responses. Think of hormones as the "prime movers" of your physical and emotional well being.
Every time you get angry, become tired, laugh, cry, have sex, wake up, feel hungry, or fall asleep your body is responding to hormones. That's because hormone levels can impact virtually every major system and organ in your body.
Okay, I KNOW that I won't be making friends when I post this, but hey. Wrong is wrong, especially when you are preying on the sick. I recently ran across this 'protocol' and I wanted to share with you what I have found out.
There aren't many resources available for Lyme patients worldwide, but there are a few in the USA. Thanks to Lisa Hilton over at What Is Lyme for this comprehensive list. She's a star & an asset to Lyme sufferers worldwide.
The Importance of Amino Acids in Chronic Lyme and MTHFR (methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) Mutations
Amino acids are at the basis of all life processes, as they are absolutely essential for every metabolic process. Among their most important tasks are the optimal transport and optimal storage of all nutrients (i.e. water, fat, carbohydrates, proteins, minerals and vitamins). The majority of diseases can essentially be traced back to metabolic disturbances.
Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse with Lyme. Enter the MTHFR gene mutation. Oh yes, it is just a barrel of fun having Lyme, as I am sure you, the reader are very aware. I am by no means a MTHFR guru, but being recently diagnosed with this little treasure, I have immersed myself into everything I could get my hands on. Here is a basic explanation of the MTHFR.
What is the science behind Salt/C? How does this simple protocol help people with Lyme Disease and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, when so many other protocols fail? I think the most accurate answer is that nobody really knows. But there are many possible explanations. Here are a few scientific explanations that seem plausible.
Someone that I know named recently came up with a really GOOD idea. Apparently, you can 'self-report' your Lyme disease to the CDC. Her idea was to bombard them in May, in protest of their bogus diagnostic guidelines/criteria and blow their 'estimated' 300,000 new cases of Lyme a year theory out of the water!
Dr. Vickery was born in 1928 in Bronx, NY. He served in a submarine squadron US Navy, WW II. Finishing his interrupted schooling he graduated from Stamford High School, Stamford CT in 1948. Graduated from Lincoln Chiropractic College in 1951 and did post graduate work. (Now National College of Chiropractic). He was licensed to practice in 1952 in Connecticut, did his post graduate work at Spears Chiropractic Hospital in 1954.
