Lyme Disease – simple help

Stevia Kills Lyme Disease Pathogen

Better Than Antibiotics, Study Confirms

 

With summer upon us the risk of encountering ticks, the pesky critters responsible for the spread of Lyme disease, is on the rise.

Lyme disease is an insidious and complicated disease to treat, both for the allopathic medical world and alternative medical practitioners, due to its rapid shape-shifting abilities.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), roughly 300,000 people have diagnosed with Lyme disease each year in the United States alone. While ticks exist in half of all US counties, Lyme disease cases are concentrated in the Northeast and upper Midwest, with 14 states accounting for over 96% of cases reported to CDC.

The CDC says that while 80-90% of reported cases are considered resolved with the treatment of antibiotics, 10-20% of patients go on to develop the chronic form, which is a persistent and sometimes devastating illness that can harm any organ of the body, including the brain and the nervous system.

The culprit behind Lyme disease is Borrelia burgdorferi, a bacterial infection proven to respond most effectively to antibiotics doxycycline and amoxicillin.

However, Borrelia burgdorferi can exist in morphological forms, including spirochetes, spheroplast (or L-form), round bodies, and biofilms.  When conditions are considered unfavorable for the bacteria, it has the ability to morph into the dormant round body, then hide in a biofilm form. When conditions are favorable, however, it can shift back to its spirochete form.

While conventional antibiotics can treat some forms of the disease, they’re not effective in treating ALL forms, often times failing to produce a long-term cure.

But, new research suggests a long-term treatment may be just around the corner.

A recent study published in the European Journal of Microbiology and Immunology revealed that stevia, a sweetener, and sugar substitute, has been found to terminate late state or chronic Lyme disease.

The study, conducted by researchers from the Department of Biology and Environmental Science at the University of New Haven in West Haven, Connecticut, found that stevia whole leaf extract, as an individual agent, was an effective treatment against all known morphological forms of B. burgdorferi.

For the study, researchers examined the antimicrobial effect of four stevia leaf extracts in comparison to individual antibiotics (doxycycline, cefoperazone, daptomycin), as well as a combination of the three.

Lab tests revealed that while one extract was more potent than the others, likely due to its growing conditions and the agricultural practices utilized, all extracts were effective in treating all forms of the bacteria.

In fact, the stevia extract was proven to work against even the most antibiotic-resistant of the bacteria, known as the biofilm. The individual antibiotics, on the other hand, actually increased the biofilm.

While researchers acknowledge that the results need more investigation and clinical trials to corroborate the finding, they’re hoping these results indicate we’re one step closer to finding an effective treatment for even the most persistent forms of Lyme disease.

Lyme Disease – a silent and largely undiagnosed epidemic

Colloidal Silver and Lyme Disease

Experts agree that Lyme disease – an infection-based chronic degenerative disease caused by a tick-borne bacterial spirochete known as Borrelia burgdorferi, is one of the most crippling (and often baffling) diseases of the modern era

 

It’s also one of the fastest growing diseases in the Western world.  More than 300,000 people are diagnosed with the dread disease each year in the U.S. and more than 65,000 cases are year are diagnosed in Europe.

 According to the Daily Mail, “Lyme disease is known to wreck lives and strike when people least expect it.  Transmitted from ticks, it can take years to diagnose, leaving people suffering painful and debilitating symptoms doctors are unable to explain.” 

 These symptoms can range from overwhelming fatigue to crippling muscle and joint pain and inflammation, severe muscle weakness, “brain fog” and other serious cognitive impairments, sleep disturbances, headaches and more.

 While there is said to be no real “cure” for the disease, natural health experts agree that symptoms can be dramatically reduced and victims of the disease can return to a relatively normal life if they understand how the pathogen behind the disease works… which natural, infection-fighting supplements can be used to help conquer or suppress the pathogen…and which additional nutrients can help the body repair the damage caused by the pathogen as it spreads.

 

 Here’s what we know so far…

Probably the best book on the subject of colloidal silver and Lyme disease is Dr. M. Paul Farber’s book, The Micro-Silver Bullet: A Scientifically Documented Answer to the Three Largest Epidemics in the World: Lyme Disease, Aids Virus, Yeast Infection, and the Common Cold.

His book has probably done more to educate Lyme patients about the use of colloidal silver for this condition, than any other.

In his book you’ll see the clinical research evidence he presents demonstrating that colloidal silver does indeed kill the pathogen that causes Lyme disease, which is to say the bacterial spirochete known as Borrelia burgdorferi.

 

 

 

 

 

According to Dr. Farber:

“Two studies have been conducted with colloidal silver and its effectiveness against Borreliaburgdorferi.  The first study conducted at Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, Pennyslvania, showed growth inhibition in low concentrations (2-10 ppm) and much faster action in higher concentrations (15-75 ppm).

 The Department of Health and Human Services, Rocky Mountain Laboratories, tested cultured spirochetes of the Borrelia burgdorferi…using 150 ppm and 15 ppm colloidal silver…none of the treated cultures contained live spirochetes after 24 hours.”

 

 In other words, in test tube studies concentrations of colloidal silver as low as 15 ppm wiped out the Lyme disease pathogen.

Dr. Farber later claimed to have witnessed “a 100% killing effect of the Lyme pathogen, Borreliaburgdorferi, “within less than five minutes of exposure” to a colloidal silver preparation.

He went on to say that “Studies by Margret Bayer, Ph.D., at the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia have shown that the growth and replication (spread) of Lyme disease bacteria Borreliaburgdorferi are measurably slowed or stopped” by a colloidal silver preparation “when viewed in a laboratory test tube.”

Finally, he states that researchers Dr. Willy Burgdorfer, Ph.D. (the scientist who actually discovered the Lyme disease pathogen) and Dr. Tom Schwan, Ph.D., while working at the Rocky Mountain Laboratories of the National Institutes of Health, Public Health Service, United States Department of Health and Human Services, found that silver was “uniformly deadly” to the Lyme pathogen and a related fever-inducing pathogen.
