Mystery of Chronic Lyme Disease

Mystery of Chronic Lyme Disease

Dr. Stephen Phillips gave an excellent interview on Fox News – not to be missed. The former president of The International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS), Dr. Phillips has given numerous testimonies in Connecticut, New York, and Rhode Island as a Lyme disease expert and has extensive experience not only in the management of Lyme disease, but also with its other associated vector-borne infections. An internationally known physician and researcher, he has treated patients from over twenty countries.

Watch the interview at http://www.fox5ny.com/news/104740644-video

Dr. Phillips was also a keynote speaker at the 2015 International NORVECT conference in Oslo, Norway in which he methodically identified numerous hypocritical position papers written by IDSA leaders who publicly deny the existence of chronic Lyme disease.

Watch a preview here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHQ7cwhjTao or better yet buy access to all the presentations at http://norvect.no/conference/conference-2015/ – very reasonably priced at 499NOK which converts to just $59 USD (rate fluctuates).

Also of note is Dr. Phillip’s 81 page paper on the evidence of chronic Lyme disease.

Genetic Complication With Lyme Disease - MTHFR

As if we don’t have enough to worry about, now there is a genetic defect that can also cause health-related havoc. The MTHFR gene mutation also known as methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase, is a genetic polymorphism, or what is seen as a genetic variance or flaw in today’s science. One in every two people may have this variance — about half of the population. Continue reading

Cinnamon Oil Protocol

Cinnamon Oil Protocol

Take a look – this short combat guide is for people who are looking for alternative protocols to fight chronic Lyme disease. I use this method in conjunction with antibiotics, and believe it to be effective. Find it here at Amazon.

As with other alternative protocols, don’t embark on any protocol without the support of a licensed medical doctor. Anecdotal stories are all good and well, but we are all unique and need the medical expertise of a professional to help us to eradicate the Lyme infection and recover quality of life.
