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!
