A recent conference in Washington state, put on by The Kinghardt Academy, has now taken place and has a great overview topic by the Better Health Guy's website. I'm hoping everyone who has an interest in chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic pain that is from fibromyalgia, MS, ALS, Parkinsons, Lewy body disease, Alzheimers, and autism is aware of this conference having taken place and the information that is available which has come from it.
This is one thing that jumped out at me when reviewing the incredible overview of the conference at this resource I hope will help our YOUsers who go out and learn from it after seeing something in this distilled summary topic that leads to 'taking action' to go to the link: Dr Klinghardt makes this point late in the conference, when they are summarizing/ wrapping up: 
It is the first time in human evolution that our bodies are filling up with environmental toxins. They are stored in the connective tissue and eventually impact the cells. Impacts the growing fetus. In order to be healthy, we have to work a detox program, antimicrobial protocol, and antiparasitic protocol.
I'm providing this topic, as I do frequently at Lumigrate, to allow our YOUsers to know of the resource we lead out to with the link. I like to give people a little of my background or opion about the subject at hand in topics I create, as well as a 'sampler' of what they will find if they 'take the trip (on the link) to see the site.'  Here is the link to the Better Health Guy's topic about this conference: 
He asks that the topic contents not be re-created/mirrored elsewhere because he plans to update the information contained in the topic, and that way people aren't getting 'old copies'.  So I'm going to do the 'sampler' a bit differently on this topic, so as to allow YOUsers to see what they will get if they take the link as encouraged. (I'll just share a few of the highlights that I thought were critically important, below.) 
I was 'aware' of Dr. Klinghardt from the movie Under Our Skin, which I have covered at Lumigrate for those who wish to find the information. In 2013 and early 2014 I studied some of the videos online and transcribed the information, more or less, so that Lumigrate YOUsers could read over the information or study it in addition to, or in place of, watching video. So I'm thrilled to see the way that BetterHealthGuy covered the speakers and what they each presented, with the bullet list as he did. This made it very easy to view and understand. This reflects an incredible amount of work on his part, which I appreciate.
You'll find a 'donate' button at the bottom of the topic, as well as seeing that he has agreements with some of the organizations or people he links to that provide income in return for getting people ushered from his website to theirs. This is a very common practice and I just wanted to specifiy here, that I had felt this was not the way I wanted to have Lumigrate funded. Any links I provide from Lumigrate are because I think they're a link worth considering taking. Collectively, I hope that Lumigrate makes it easier for our YOUsers who are seeking information to find helpful providers, service types, theories, products, and overall information sources. So please consider donating when you see the donate button at the destination of this topic/link. 
This is how the topic begins there: 

In May 2014, Dr. Klinghardt and the Klinghardt Academy hosted "Healing Lyme Without Antibiotics" in Bellevue, Washington. As always, one needs to be prepared for a weekend of information not unlike drinking from a fire hose. So much is shared and so many new connections with people are made. I've been to so many of these events that it feels like home; like a family reunion. Below is a summary of the speakers at the event and some of the key points that were made. I highly encourage people to contact the Klinghardt Academy to purchase the DVDs to learn all of the details of the event.

Specific protocols and dosages are not discussed below.  If you have an interest in the information provided and you or your doctor want further details, please contact the Klinghardt Academy to purchase the DVDs or binders from the event.

The speakers and very distilled down highlights of what you'll see provided are: 

Andreanna Rainville RN did a refresher prior to the core seminar. Some of the takeaways from her talk included: Toxins and their effects on children, with detoxification important to consider. A recommendation of the book "The ADHD and Autism Nutritional Supplement Handbook" by Dana Laake. Neurotransmitter 'tuning' is one strategy, but preferable is why they are thrown off in the first place. Looking at the health of the gut for the impact of impact of neurotransmitters.  (Note: Lumigrate's New Year 2013 topic for over a month was a daily addition to a thread created about the book The UltraMind Solution, by Mark Hyman, MD -- fix your gut and your mind will follow is the pretense. INTERESTING and NEW to me in this presentation highlight list was the wheat, dairy issues commonly part of this conversation and "When wheat is an issue, think father; dairy, think mother." And she suggested a GI Infusions parasite protocol from Kauai Herbals.  http://www.kauaiherbals.com/gi-infusions.  SO if this is of interest to you -- go see what is at the Better Health Guy topic! 

Dietrich Klinghardt MD PhD  held his first Lyme workshop in 1996.  All illnesses of brain deterioration are on the rise. He gets his information from caring for patients, patient experiences, connection or inspiration, and reading.  

"Dr. Klinghardt pondered the question around why some people are sick and others with similar issues are fine.  He mentioned that microbes grow in contaminated terrain and that toxicity could be a reason that we are more affected by microbes today than in the past.  He noted that it could also be that spirochetes block the detoxification system.  In actual practice, his observation has been that both of these are likely to be true.  The microbes need the toxic terrain so they downregulate the body's detoxification systems in order to create a better environment for their survival." ...  "It is not the Lyme bugs that harm the patients; it is the immune response to the bugs."

Different forms of the disease are milder or more severe, and he speaks specifically of Germany, Washington State/USA, and Lyme, CT, downwind from Plum Island, and the potential for the most severe form to be man-made.   Lyme disease and AIDS uniquely invade the same immune cells that are supposed to kill them.

"This is not a tick disorder as many other insect vectors carry Borrelia such as fleas and mosquitoes.  In some areas, 60% of mosquitoes have Borrelia spirochetes. In the United States, the "endemic area" for Lyme is the entire continental United States."

Transmission: "Blood transfusions, sexual contact, unpasteurized milk, trans-placental transmission, breast feeding, and food are all potential sources of infection."

Research shows Alzheimer's is associated with spirochetal infection. 90% of people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are Lyme positive.  The same is true of fibromyalgia.  Borrelia is found in most with ALS and MS as well. The arthritis/Lyme connection and %s are discussed. Sarcoidosis is discussed.  Long-term vitamin D deficiency can lead to other health problems, including cancers.

Heart rate is discussed -- what rate would indicate Lyme may be suspected is discussed.

Genes and epigenetics: Microbes cross the placenta and induce epigenetic changes in the fetus. "It takes 25,000 years for a single gene to change.  Epigenetic regulation of a gene takes a second."

The rash is discussed, the majority of people who get Lyme do not get a rash. The rash may occur in people who have previously been and are already infected -- presentedin more detail. 

"The Straw that Broke the Camel's Back" -- The onset of severe Lyme is usually a traumatic event that was the last straw to break the camel's back. Effects of viruses are often secondary to the breakdown of the system.  Researchers in conventional circles often think that the deepest factor in illness is the viruses; it is the parasites. The genome of protozoa is longer than bacteria; protozoa are very common.

Bartonella: Dental issues and jawbone cavitations, ALS and most severe cases of Lyme are often connected with Bartonella. (He actually states that there is no ALS without Bartonella).  

He gives a little history lesson and homeopathy example about Napoleon's troops versus Korsokov's, who had his men make homeopathic auto-nosode from urine with good results, more details at the source.  

Aluminum, strontium, barium, and titanium are found in the environment.  Pathogens grow exponentially faster in the presence of aluminum.  Detoxification of aluminum is absolutely essentially for recovery and wellness.  The exponential growth of Lyme disease directly parallels our increasing body burden of aluminum.  

When it comes to mitochondrial illness, many people look at B vitamins, carnitine, and similar options. None of them look at toxins in the mitochondria such as glyphosate and aluminum. (Glyphosate is the chemical in "Roundup".) 

GMO: Genetically-modified corn creates its own insecticide which combines with the bowel bacteria in our system and continues to produce pesticides inside of us.

When you give antibiotics, you may be reducing the microbes in us that are producing pesticides. Probiotic supplementation can turn on the growth of mutated bowel bugs and result in more pesticides in the body. Further thoughts about that, at the source. 

Paul Anderson ND spoke on Methylation Genomics and also on IV Artesunate. A few highlights (go see the source at the link, please, these are just a few of the highlights I thought YOUsers would have their interests piqued by): 

  • Methylation touches every aspect of human health.
  • With methylation protocols, it can take 6 months to 3 years to feel the full difference for those that have been sick for several decades.

  • In some cases, with methylation treatment, people become much worse. You have to "give love" to the entire cycle and not just one part of it.
  • As you speed up the process, the bad parts also work faster and become more obvious.
  • High dose B5 can help to reduce histamine. Histamine is involved in focus, agitation, irritation. Sleep problems can be histamine-mediated.
  • Taking nutrients orally can lead to problems when gut issues exist; parenteral therapy may be a better option for some.
  • Magnesium, P5P, zinc, copper, Vitamin C are common co-factors that often fix a lot.
  • Folic acid is discussed.
  • Once you have human herpesviruses, they are often all present. ... They grow and replicate with trauma and stress. (More on that, go to the source...)

"Dr. Klinghardt suggested that one reason that we may need methylation cofactors and that our genes are not working is that the nutrients are being eaten by parasites. The first step in Lyme treatment is the radical elimination of parasites. It is important to get the parasites out whole as they store large amounts of toxins internally. Removing a whole parasite is one of the most effective detoxification options. ... Because the immune system is often suppressed with Lyme, Lyme patients often have parasites. Dr. Klinghardt initially underestimated how much all of us are affected by parasites."

Alex Volinsky PhD spoke on the "Rope Worm".

Alex had obesity, chronic tonsillitis, allergies, neurodermitis, scoliosis, pain in the knees, back pain, bruxism, and chronic fatigue.

He presents that the top causes of death are atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes, and chronic infectious disease and that all of these can be largely eliminated by water fasting and changing the lifestyle including diet, exercise, and positive thinking. He believes there is a connection with the moon cycle.  Rope worms are subject to autolysis (meaning they break down when they leave the body via self-digestion; this is a reason that it is generally difficult to get positive parasite tests). Rope worms are associated with Lyme, autism, and Morgellons. "As for what the "rope worm" actually is, no one knows at this time. However, Volinsky is working to do additional DNA sequencing projects once funds are available." (Much more at the source... )

Dr. Klinghardt MD PhD spoke on Friday evening and shared many of his thoughts late into the evening. These included:

Treating parasites in many different ways leads to the rope parasite coming out. He calls it the rope parasite rather than the rope worm as it is still not clear exactly what "the creature" is. When these start coming out, Lyme patients improve and feel better. Some people need to do enemas several times per week for 18 months and then they see parasites.  Most of the rope parasite is in the small intestine. Clinical symptoms with Lyme is much closer linked to rope parasites than anything else.

Most recovered, asymptomatic Lyme patients still test highly positive for Lyme on the Western Blot, LTT, and culture test. Lyme may be the underlying cause of the illness, but it is not the cause of the symptoms. The symptoms are caused by other issues. 

The rope parasite is likely a biofilm community of different organisms that live together in a meaningful way. Biofilm communities determine how many members are allowed into them. The "rope worm" is not falling into the classic definition of a parasite but more of a biofilm. Every patient sees something come out when they do the treatments long enough.

There is no reliable lab for parasites. Dr. Klinghardt stated he has never had a patient with a positive Western Blot for Lyme that did not have parasites.

Raw food diets are a major reason people have parasites. A study of salad bars in New York was cited.

Cats are an infestation and generally not conducive to healing (toxoplasmosis and bartonella).

We feed parasites and they extract toxins from us. Lead levels in the host and a parasite were compared and found to be 106 times higher in the parasite; cadmium 119 times higher. The rope parasite may be an adaptive mechanism to survive the time we are in. The rope parasite may be an adaptation in how the body responds to heavy metals.

Aluminum fosters the growth of microbial pathogens and parasites. Aluminum is probably the main cause of parasites and Lyme disease. Aluminum is necessary for the Lyme bugs to penetrate the blood-brain barrier. We need to look at sources of aluminum but also need to work a detoxification program. Getting worms out whole via rectal anti-parasitic treatments is an excellent way to detoxify. 

"Treatment includes: 1) Stopping foods, behaviors, and supplements such as B vitamins that feed the parasites, 2) Heavy metal detoxification and mineral replacement, 3) Enema and/or Suppository protocols regularly for 18 months, and 4) Repeated oral anti-helminthics. Some of the oral options include ....." (go to the source to see the details). 

Lyme, co-infections, mold, auto-immunity, food allergies, CFIDS, MCS, colon/liver/pancreatic cancers are all CONSEQUENCES of parasites; not the cause of the illness. Initially assume that every illness you see is caused by parasites. 

At the start of day two, there was some discussion with Dr. Klinghardt followed by some additional comments from Alex Volinsky. And NEWS about chocolate (and more about raw milk) was included: 

Someone suggested dark chocolate. Dr. Klinghardt commented that chocolate has a dark side and that parasite eggs can be found in chocolate. Some parasite eggs can be heated to 600C or put in HCl and they still hatch; eggs are indestructible. Living Lyme spirochetes have been found in raw milk and cows are largely infected with Lyme. 

For purposes of the Gubarev protocols, the worse the quality of the milk, the better it is as a treatment.  There was a lot of detail about the Gubarev protocols.... see the source! There are 400 species of bacteria in the gut with 20,000-40,000 subspecies. Some people have explored fecal transplants, and you can read more about that .... at the source... Gubarev enema protocols may be the beginning of treatment for Lyme disease and all chronic illnesses.

Dr. Klinghardt continued the day by sharing:

  • 90% of people that are positive on the Lyme LTT do not have symptoms; only 10% are symptomatic. 
  • You have to change the ground on which the Lyme grows and then address the Lyme at the end. Antibiotics become the air gun at the end rather than the nuclear bomb at the beginning.
  • England has the highest incidence of autism with 1:28 boys as compared to 1:35 in the United States.
  • Flu vaccines have just enough mercury to synergize aluminum. 
  • All of us are mineral depleted and mineral deficiency may be a precondition for illness.
  • Anything neurological is increasing exponentially; cancer is increasing linearly. 
  • Accelerator of the deterioration of the human condition is associated with environmental toxins, EMFs, microbial infections and parasites, and exposure to inhaled nano-particles.
  • We are ill as a result of epigenetic influences resulting from wars, starvation, poverty, struggle, polluting the body, and other traumata in the family including in the family history.
  • In one study, rat babies were stressed. They were later loved. The children of the rats developed the same depression and anxiety. The genes were not changed, but the epigenetics were. It is the epigenetic dysregulation of the genes that lead to the difficulty.
  • The difference between a symptomatic and asymptomatic person with Lyme could be the trauma of a grandparent or similar abuse.
  • Genes get inactivated by methylating them. You want viruses to be methylated. 
  • Emotional stress in the womb leads to eipigenetic changes and psychiatric illnesses in adulthood.
  • Chemicals decrease fertility and these changes are passed to the offspring generation after generation.
  • In most with chronic Lyme, the blood is thick; Boluoke or Nattokinase may be helpful.
  • 80% of stress in the womb is related to wireless and cordless phones.
  • The majority of methylation supplement issues resolve once parasites are treated. 
  • BioPure has a supplemented called Core that has 2 types of B6, molybdenum (sulfation), taurine (by giving some, the body does not need to make it and instead can make glutathione), magnesium, and zinc.
  • You cannot treat the epigenetics without first treating the parasites. B vitamins feed parasites.
  • You don't find parasites without finding heavy metals; and vice versa.
  • Some of the key nutrients in support of methylation include glycine, copper, HCl, B1, B2, B5 (methylation and adrenals), methylated folic acid, hydroxy-B12, and niacin.
  • When one is deficient in hydrochloric acid, they are also amino acid and mineral deficient. 
  • A question was asked about reinfection after parasite treatment. Dr. Klinghardt responded that we can tame the zoo, but reinfection is the wrong question as the main source of reinfection is from the remaining parasite eggs in our own body. We need to live a lifelong spice-based protocol with ginger, garlic, and turmeric. We also need to fortify our hydrochloric acid barrier; herbal bitters are the best approach. 

Dr. Christine Schaffner spoke on Glyphosate and GMO foods.

According to some, glyphosate should not impact humans as we do not have a Shikimate pathway which is its mechanism of action. Unfortunately, the bacteria in our gut do have this pathway.

Glyphosate chelates calcium, cobalt, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, nickel, and zinc. GMO foods do not have these minerals in a bioavailable form. According to Dr. Don Huber, you may have the mineral, but if it is chelated with glyphosate, it is not available to you. There have been sharp increases in GMO ready corn, soy, cotton, and canola.

Lyme disease grows fantastically under the influence of glyphosate while the beneficial organism are reduced.  The epitome of Lyme could be entirely related to glyphosate. Glyphosate is linked with autism, allergies, cancer, Parkinson's, MS, infertility, cardiovascular disease, GI disease, obesity, depression, Alzheimer's, and kidney failure.

She cites as a resource someone we've recently covered on Lumigrate about the interplay of glyphosate and aluminum in the role of disease: Stephanie Seneff has suggested glyphosate as a cause of autism. http://www.mdpi.com/1099-4300/15/4/1416

Gut bacteria attempt to get rid of glyphosate by producing ammonia which can lead to brain inflammation. Zeolites such as BioPure ZeoBind may be one of the best options for reducing ammonia.

Glyphosate cannot be washed off. They give the link to a lab that can detect glyphosate in water or urine.

Best options are to avoid GMO foods and to replete minerals and amino acids. Besides incorporating minerals,  D3 and several other things that may help support the cytochrome P450 enzymes are mentioned specifically .... at the source... 

Detoxification may be approached with neural therapy, liver and gallbladder flushes, colonics, coffee enemas, castor oil, sweating and Epsom salt baths. Other things for detoxification are shown .. at the source... 

In Summary : Glyphosate could be a common denominator in the rise of chronic illness.

Bette Lamont MA spoke on Neurological Reorganization.  She specializes in working with children with neurodevelopmental challenges.  She can be reached at http://www.developmentalmovement.org.  (He did not cover this with bulleted items, this is the total at the source on this presentation.) So off I will go to this site! I hope YOUsers by now are seeing the type of information presented MUCH more thoroughly and easy to read at the Better Health Guy's topic... "the source". 


Dr. Garth Nicolson spoke on Mycoplasma and NT Factor --- Just a few of the points to show YOUsers what he was 'about'.

  • Mitochondrial function goes down to 40-60% in people with chronic infections. 
  • Intracellular infection stimulate reactive oxygen species (ROS). 
  • Mycoplasma is seen in 50% with CFS, 40% with Gulf War Syndrome, 60% with Fibromyalgia, 45% with Rheumatoid Arthritis, 65% with Lyme, and 90% with ALS.
  • In ALS, Echo 7 Enterovirus and Mycoplasma are common; other infections are less relevant.
  • In MS patients, >50% have Mycoplasma, >35% Borrelia, and >30% HHV-6.
  • Multiple infections are seen in almost all of the neurodegenerative diseases. The ones that go downhill the fastest have chronic infections.
  • Transmission from Gulf War Syndrome patients took 6 months to 2 years for family members to start to exhibit symptoms.
  • Veterans received multiple military vaccines. Were given over 3 days; they were spread out to 18 months for the second Gulf War. Military vaccines were tested in the Texas prison system.
  • CoQ-10 and Alpha Lipoic acid can support mitochondrial function. AND MUCH MORE AT THE SOURCE....)

Dr. Klinghardt suggested that the NT Factor EnergyLipids powder from Allergy Research can be a nice option for the Klinghardt Cocktail. (Much about NTFactor was provided in this section).

Dr. Katie Dahlgren gave a lecture on Quintessence and shared: 

  • Quintessence is an herbal blend of Andrographis, Japanese Knotweed, Smilax, Red Root, and Stephania.
  • Andrographis is known to cross the blood-brain barrier. It is anti-parasitic and can help to reduce colon inflammation. It helps with periodontal disease. DETAILS PROVIDED of this presentation.. at the source..., like at the top of this topic. 

Dr. Allison Hoffman spoke on Chaga and shared the following:

  • Chaga is a parasite to the birch tree. It was used early on for TB. It has been used for ulcers and may be helpful for H. Pylori. It is anti-aging and anti-fatiguing as well as high in antioxidants and SOD. It may enhance the immune system, break biofilms, help with the rope parasite, coinfections, Mycoplasma.  It is an easy addition to the Klinghardt Lyme Cocktail. Dosing is discussed, so ... see the source.... 

Dr. Brooke Bodeen spoke on Cryptolepis and shared: 

  • It has been used as a malaria treatment. It can be anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-plasmodial. 

Dr. Michele Grindstaff talked on Artemisinin and shared:

  • It is the core of many of their treatments and of the Klinghardt Cocktail.
  • It often emerges in areas where Lyme is prevalent.
  • May be anti-malarial, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic including worms, schistosomes, and blood and liver flukes. May help to improve longevity.
  • May help to reduce Herxheimer reactions.
  • Appears to be helpful for Babesia and Borrelia.
  • Malaraial parasites seem to be developing resistance over time and thus it may not be ideal as a single therapy.  MUCH MORE, in detail AT THE SOURCE, so take the link, above....

As part of an ART demo and patient night, Dr. Klinghardt shared these pearls and additional information:  (THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE ONES AT THE SITE, take the link, see the full information). 

  • Ozonated essential oils can be very helpful. Known as rizols or O3 oils. Believed to be taken up into the cells and nervous system.
  • Dr. Klinghardt initially underestimated the role of Candida in chronic illness. It is the only bug that secretes over 600 known biotoxins and can modulate every aspect of our system. Taming it with diet is not very successful. Ozonated essential oils can be highly effective against it.
  • Dr. Klinghardt mentioned ASEA, a redox signaling molecule, could be a huge solution and may be helpful for cancers. One woman in attendance reported that she cured her own Lyme with ASEA.
  • When one has perioral pallor (pale skin around the mouth or a bleaching of tissues around the lips), this can be a sign that parasites may be an issue. It can look greenish pale. Ears are often red in people with parasites as well due to lymphocytosis.
  • When lymph nodes are enlarged, this is Bartonella until proven otherwise.
  • No one gets away with living with cats unpunished.
  • The thyroid is the first target organ of glyphosate.
  • Compact Fluorescent lights contain mercury and as a result may mobilize mercury within us.
  • Treatment order is from large to small: parasites, mold, protozoa, bacteria, viruses.
  • It is the first time in human evolution that our bodies are filling up with environmental toxins. They are stored in the connective tissue and eventually impact the cells. Impacts the growing fetus. In order to be healthy, we have to work a detox program, antimicrobial protocol, and antiparasitic protocol.
  • Suggested patients run their 23andme data through MTHFRSupport and then can also get additional insights by using ART to evaluate the supplements that might be suggested. 

Dr. Klinghardt shared that a survey had been done on patients of Lyme doctor Dan Kinderlehrer and that those that had recovered had used some type of frequency-based treatment. You cannot ultimately heal without considering biophysics.

 Dr. Richard Loyd is a well-known expert in frequency based options and shared: 

  • The 11th harmonic can shatter microorganisms.
  • His web site is provided (see the source).  Also links to several sources he cites in his talk
  • All cancers are viral issues. Rife had 100% success in his time.
  • He shared that if you have certain devices with coils and cover them in a damp paper towel, toxins will migrate into the paper towel on the positive wire side and that you can actually see them changing the color of the towel.
  • He discussed how to make an inexpensive foot bath. 
  • Half of all houses have enough mold to make people sick.
  • Phase 1 and Phase 2 liver detox do nothing for mold toxins.
  • Ozone, MMS, Detox Oil/Thieves can be helpful options for killing mold.

The final lecture of the event was from Dr. Klinghardt sharing more of his amazing work with us: 

  • If you do some things wrong with frequency, you often still get the patient better. A common denominator of successful recover was some kind of frequency therapy as part of a broader protocol.
  • The World Health Organization has suggested that WiFi and cordless phones may be carcinogenic. EMFs disrupt the immune function through stimulation of various allergic and inflammatory responses. 
  • Cellular phones have genetic effects, can lead to cancer, behavioral problems, open the blood-brain barrier, allow calcium to enter the cell, have cardiovascular, hormone, and immune effects. 
  • Switch off the fuses at night and get a sleep canopy. Dr. Klinghardt mentioned the canopies; information can be obtained from the Klinghardt Academy. The Klinghardt Academy has a number of EMF measuring and negating products. SEE THE SOURCE at the LINK
  • Glyphosate manifests slowly over time as inflammation damages the cellular systems throughout the body. 
  • When inflammation is present, consider EMFs and glyphosate.
  • US Biotek Environmental Panel can be helpful; may need to challenge with homeopathic urine therapy to get higher readings.
  • For detoxification, BioPure Deep Purple, BioPure Rosehips (glyphosate), Vitamin E, Glycine, Selenium, homeopathic urine, binders such as ZeoBind, Chlorella, and Microsilica.
  • ZeoBind may be helpful for petrochemicals, insecticides, pesticides. Microsilica may be helpful for aluminum and sulfhydryl metals. Microsilica with ZeoBind can be a useful pairing as zeolites may leave behind small amounts of aluminum which the Microsilica will help to remove. 
  • Aluminum is not very toxic when orally absorbed alone. It has a devastating effect with mercury. There is no biological barrier to inhaled, environmental aluminum which can go directly into the brain. Detoxing aluminum eliminates inflammation and improve the brain and CNS. The increase in aluminum parallels the increase in the body burden of parasites.
  • Herpes Simplex 1, mercury, aluminum, and Borrelia are all found in Alzheimer's. 
  • Dr. Klinghardt has never seen an MS patient without a heavy vaccine load in the history.
  • Dr. Klinghardt himself had significant deterioration in his own health after a vaccination for Hepatitis B and it took 30 years to recover.
  • Nano-aluminium can elicit a pro-inflammatory response and destroy the blood-brain barrier, alter mitochondrial function, and lead to illness.
  • One option to help support the removal of aluminum is to fill a glass bottle with horsetail tea from reverse osmosis water and add the juice of a fresh lemon. With doctor guidance, cilantro tincture may be added. Magnesium malate at bedtime can help with removal of aluminum. 
  • Silica, chlorella, Microsilica, K-CLEAR, ZeoBind, Horsetail tea, and homeopathic urine nosode can support aluminum detoxification. Miso Cilantro soup combined with a foot bath has been show in increase the output by 20 fold. The prescription option for aluminum is Desferal injections. 
  • In porphyrin testing, aluminum is indicated by uroporphyrin. Mercury by precoproporphyrin and lead by coproporphyrin.
  • Volvic water has the highest silica content.
  • Sulfhydryl metals include mercury, silver, titanium, barium, strontium, and nickel. These cannot be removed from the body unless they are first oxidized. Sulfur enrichment in the body may be helpful using options such as MSM
  • Mercury detoxification is a never-ending process. 
  • There is no good test for heavy metals. A challenge test only shows the mercury in the vascular system of the kidneys. 
  • Curcumin detoxifies mercury. Chlorella increases mercury excretion in the poop and protects the kidneys; thymus grows in size.
  • There are hundreds of species of Borrelia. Borrelia is genus; burgdorferi is a species. 
  • Organisms exchange plasmids. The microbial world is much more complex than we think. 
  • Only 25% experience a Bulls-eye rash. 
  • Lyme spirochetes are found in Alzheimer's disease along with HSV-1 and metals. Miklossy research can be found here.
  • Stonybrook has a Western Blot that is not quite as sensitive as IGeneX but often gets insurance coverage. LTT Ellispot from infectoLab is the best test. All healthy people that had Lyme still test positive on the Ellispot. Fry Labs - Mycoplasma, Haemobartonella - shows microbial burden in the blood.
  • PCR tests have a 15-20% detection and moss 80%.
  • Lyme disease does not live in the blood. Most spirochetes are found in the brain.
  • Olive oil can be an effective option for Mycoplasma.
  • Colloidal Silver with any antimicrobial dramatically amplifies the antimicrobial effects. Liposomal colloidal silver is an interesting idea.
  • Grapefruit Seed Extract is a biofilm breaker and broad spectrum antibiotic. Has found that some can become allergic to it if used daily so better to use only a couple of days a week.
  • For liposomal options, an ultrasonic cleaner is used. A vibrational trainer or loud speaker with Mozart music could also be used.
  • Ticks and dogs: If a dog is given cistus tea and normally gets 100 tick bites, they may now only get 2.
  • Antioxidants are important, but should be done later in the day away from the more oxidative treatments. 
  • Deep Purple and Rose Hips help with the removal of glyphosate from the body.
  • When one has die-off, it is generally best not to stop the treatment but to drop back to 1/10 of the dose and continue.
  • Diatomaceous earth has a high amount of silica. However, there is some concern that it may suppress sIgA production in the gut or lead to hypercoagulation if leaky gut is present as it could get absorbed. The diatoms are sharp and could cause microscopic damage.
  • Biosil is the silica used for aluminum detoxification.
  • The minimum treatment for most people would include enema protocols and aluminum detoxification combined with the Lyme cocktail. At the very end, antibiotics may be used as a last blow.
  • When the thyroid is dysregulated, for every 0.2C drop in temperature, you double the pathogens in the system. Getting the body temperature up is one of the most powerful antimicrobials of all. Underarm target temperature is 97.8F. 
  • It will be difficult to get well without enemas as part of the protocol. Enemas are the future direction of treatment.

LITERALLY, I have reduced this by way over half --- I wanted to provide the searchable words that someone might be looking for and show that this conference covered ALL THIS information -- in more detail than is here, so GO TO THE SOURCE and see it laid out much more neatly and easier to read, since I distilled things down.

Folate, Folic Acid and methylation, MTHFR


I saw this link for a fabulous article at an Australian N.D's website about folate / folic acid and methylation issues, the MTHFR gene issues, etc.... This is a very key issue that's seeming to be getting more attention recently.  



There are currently almost 10,000 people in Carol Savage's MTHFR Gene Mutation group on Facebook.  She's an MD who is recovering her health level from having complex chronic illness involving Lyme, etcetera, and is a fabulous resource. She was late to become an MD, and is looking forward to retiring and doing something really FUN next. For now, she's sharing her journey learning about more and more by teaching others, who also often know things she's then learning from. It's a great group.  Here's a great synopsis she posted about MTHFR and folic acid:  


50 % or more of the people in the population do NOT have the MTHFR mutations, but they may have terrible diets and do not eat enough Dihydrofolate because they do not eat many greens and beans. These individuals will be helped by taking Folic ACID. Folic ACID does eventually get made into L-Methyl Folate.

BUT.... those with the MTHFR C677T mutations will have difficulty biochemically making enough L-Methyl Folate, and when their blood stream has more Folic ACID and not enough L-Methyl Folate the Folic ACID will actually prevent what little L-Methyl Folate the person can make from getting into their brain because Folic ACID blocks the Folate Receptor alpha [FRa] receptors on the Blood Brain Barrier [BBB].

Then she also provided this little tidbit that boils it down (on 11/22/14)


Folate is a generic term for all folates.

1. Folic ACID... SYNTHETIC and the only one that gets STUCK in the BBB [FRa] receptor sites and ends up blocking the entry of L-Methyl Folate into the brain.
2. Dihydrofolate [DHF]....natural
3. Tetrahydrofolate [THF]...natural
4. 5-10-MethyleneTHF...natural
5. L-Methyl Folate [5-MTHF]....this is the one you want...natural
The Methyltetrahydrofolate Reductase [MTHFR] C677T gene mutation [SNP] interferes with the enzyme’s ability to properly produce L-Methyl Folate [5-MTHF].

Insufficient L-Methyl Folate [5-MTHF] often leads to the elevation of
Homocysteine. Elevated HOMOCYSTEINE increases the risk for forming clots. But, there are also other reasons why a person may have an elevated homocysteine level.
