Lyme Disease

Lyme Disease

My wife and I had Lyme Disease twice.  Even through the discomfort, brain fog, night sweats, headaches, stiff neck, foot and joint pain caused by Lyme we both saw the blessing.  We were able to look at our blood and see what was working and what wasn’t.  What we have learned has become a protocol that has helped many.  This information is not meant to treat, or cure but to educate you on a little of what we have learned.



The traditional Western Blot test for Lyme is sadly unreliable.  This test is based on the DNA and the RNA of a tick which has never seen the human body.  You need to match these RNA and DNA in order to get a positive result.  It is now known that there are more than a hundred variations to this.  Getting a positive test is like getting on a plane and finding out the person sitting next to you has a common friend.  There are no tests for the co-infections which many people may experience including multiple co-infections.  Dr. Richard Horowitz has a self-assessment questionnaire which may be helpful in discovering your own conclusions.
Dr. Horowitz's Questionaire


My wife had a tick on her which had left a red bull’s eye.  She had all the symptoms of Lyme.  Less than 20% of people bitten get the bull’s eye and it is not necessary to be positive for Lyme.  We spent the $200 for the Comprehensive Report and sent the tick to UMASS Amherst through their tickreport.com.  The results showed negative for everything, go figure!  Another falsehood is how long the tick needs to be attached to cause Lyme.  Dr Alan Macdonald has found it only takes 10 minutes of attachment.


From a medical perspective Doxycycline is the first line of defense against Lyme.  The first time I had Lyme the CDC was recommending 24 hours of Doxy after being bitten by a tick without a positive Lyme test.  The CDC has since updated it to 30 days after exposure.  Doxycycline is essentially birth control to prevent the spirochetes from reproducing.  This is in the hope that your immune function can fend it off and destroy it.  In today’s world very few people have a strong enough immune system to resolve the issue by itself.  Doxycycline does however kill the h pylori bacteria which can disrupt digestion and even make its way into your heart if left untreated.   The first time I had Lyme I took Doxycycline for 30 days only to have all the symptoms return.  My wife has never taken Doxycycline either time, and instead choose to go 100% holistic.  I did not take Doxycycline the second time.


I must give credit where credit is due.  Much of what we have learned has come from Dr Alan MacDonald, Dr Richard Horowitz, and Stephen Harrod Buhner’s book Healing Lyme.  We were able to validate what we were doing through looking at our own blood under the microscope.  Most people do not have that luxury.  Below is the approach we took.

Japanese Knotweed

I first started with a tincture of Japanese Knotweed and found no relief.  My symptoms were a severe headache, a stiff neck like someone was squeezing the back of my neck, and joint pain that moved constantly from one area of my body to another.  I took 4 Japanese Knotweed 3 times a day and found instant relief.  The magic number we have found appears to be 12 capsules daily.  A lesser amount did not make an impact at all.  I started with one capsule three times a day, next day two capsules three times a day, and so on until I reached four capsules three times a day.   Be warned a google search for Japanese Knotweed will lead you to products that are Resveratrol and improperly listed as Japanese Knotweed.  There are very few companies that put it in capsule form.


Cats Claw

My symptoms were night sweats enough to soak the bed.  I took one to two capsules of Cats Claw before bed and my symptoms disappeared.  People with restless leg, and leg pain have also found results when taking one to two capsules of Cats Claw before bed.


KLAIRE LABS Interfase Plus

Interfase Plus is an enzyme formulation which helps break down fibrin and biofilm caused by Lyme.  It is essential if you have symptoms like stiff neck, Bell’s Palsy, headaches, neurological issues, and moving joint pain.  We took two capsules every time we took Japanese Knotweed for a total of 6 a day.

We continued the Japanese Knotweed, Cats Claw, and Interfase Plus for at least six months.  I do not recommend doing less than 6 months, even if you have no symptoms.  Lyme is sneaky and usually returns if the protocol is stopped too soon, just ask my wife.

Colloidal Silver

Silver is antibacterial antifungal and works very well for cleaning up things that do not belong in the body.  We made our own silver and drank 8 to 16 ounces of it daily for the first 30 to 60 days.  If purchasing silver, I would take three tablespoons on day one then one tablespoon daily for 30 to 60 days.  www.silversolutionusa.com has a very good and affordable product.



BALANCE is our product.  It is great for inflammation and also helps with Brain Fog.  We drink three ounces daily.  I have many clients who had tremendous Brain Fog and found improvement after only a short time.


Omega Oils

Omega fats are essential in our body.  We cannot make them, we must consume them.  Our red blood cells and white blood cells have a lipid membrane.  If we are not getting enough EFA’s in our diet, then our cells are not as strong as they could be.  It is imperative that our cells and immune system be as strong as it can be to help us heal.  The Omegas are also needed to protect the myelin sheath and brain.  I cannot tell you how many people I have seen where their doctor has told them they have MS because they had Lyme that was not treated.  There is a bunch of garbage on the market today, we highly recommend Nordic Naturals Complete Omega.  If you have not taken fish oils previously then I would double up on the recommended dosage for the first 90 days.  Krill oil does not cut it based on what I have seen in the blood.  Chia seeds are also an excellent addition.



Ticks and Lyme do not like heat. A tick can survive the washing machine but not five minutes in the dryer on high heat.  We have found a sauna helps drastically when dealing with Lyme.  My wife and I both had Lyme at the same time.  I took a sauna every other day, 135 degrees for 45 minutes and was symptom free much faster than my wife.  It also helps to flush out the toxic waste from the lymphatic system, and alleviate the achiness in the body.


Foods to AVOID

I am not going to go into details, but we highly recommend that you avoid yogurt, mushrooms, including supplements with mushrooms in them, Kombucha, and Kiefer.  Consume any of these things and you will notice your symptoms will be worse the next day.



I have seen programs that cost hundreds of dollars a month, and I believe what we are doing is effective and affordable for most.
