5 What Is Lyme Disease? A bacterial infection caused by spirochetel bacteria known as Borrelia burgdorferi Transmitted by: Ticks Sexual contact Trans-placenta Other insects Systems affected: Spiral shaped bacteria can infect all organs including the brain Symptoms caused by: Neurotoxins Inflammation

6 What are the symptoms? Common beliefs: Reality:
Narrow spectrum of symptoms Bull’s-eye rash, joint pain, Bell’s palsy, flu-like symptoms Symptoms identical in every case Reality: Symptoms differ greatly between individuals “Great Imitator," Lyme disease can masquerade as: Multiple sclerosis Arthritis Obsessive-compulsive disorder Schizophrenia Chronic fatigue syndrome Fibromyalgia Autism Depression Candida (believe it or not!) Irritable bowel syndrome Parkinson’s disease Migraine headaches Cardiac problems Many more!

7 How Is It Diagnosed? Common beliefs: Reality
Doctors are trained to look for Lyme disease Laboratory tests are accurate Modern medicine has Lyme disease figured out Reality Doctors are taught that Lyme disease is infinitesimally rare Laboratory tests are not reliable Modern medicine largely ignores Lyme disease Accurate diagnosis is made by clinical observation and/or a therapeutic trial, not laboratory tests

8 Conducting a Therapeutic Trial The Most Reliable Diagnostic Method
How it works: Administer trial course of Lyme disease treatment E.g. Rife treatment session or short course of antibiotics Monitor response Why it works: Lyme Disease is one of only a few illnesses involving herxheimer reaction after antibiotics or rife session Interpreting the results: Herxheimer reaction indicates likely Lyme infection Symptom improvement indicates likely Lyme infection

9 How prevalent is it? Common beliefs: Reality A rare infection
Isolated to a few regions Only in the United States We have accurate statistics on actual number of cases Number of cases not increasing each year Reality A very common infection All 50 states have reported cases Prevalent worldwide Inaccurate statistics on actual number of cases Number of cases greatly increasing each year



12 The global distribution of Ixodex spp
The global distribution of Ixodex spp. ticks able to transmit the agent of Lyme Disease, Borrelia burgdorfei.


14 What the math reveals Why CDC estimates are low
CDC: 20,000 Cases per Year in the US alone Experts estimate only 10% of Cases Reported to CDC Infected people do not suspect Lyme disease Inaccurate tests/misdiagnosis Unrealistic reporting criteria Real Number of Cases: 20,000 x 10 = 200,000/yr in the United States alone! Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients agrees: July, 2004 issue estimates 200,000 new cases per year Unsuccessful or unapplied treatment = cumulative cases Number of sufferers in 2006 = 1 million? 10 million? American Cancer Society: 1.2 million cancer cases/year

15 How is it treated? Common beliefs: Reality
3 weeks of amoxicillin or doxycycline is adequate symptoms after treatment are “all in your head” Antibiotics are 100% effective No such thing as “chronic Lyme disease” Reality In many cases, three weeks of antibiotics is insufficient Remaining symptoms after treatment indicate ongoing infection Elusive and resilient bacteria often survives antibiotic therapy Chronic Lyme disease results from inadequate therapy

16 What is an LLMD? Lyme Literate Medical Doctor
Recognize and treat acute and chronic Lyme disease IV antibiotics at high doses for extended courses (1 to 24 months!) Advocate and hero to Lyme disease sufferers Increasingly persecuted and disciplined by state medical boards Some people get cured Get a referral at Disadvantages of long-term antibiotic therapy Often not curative Dangerous and permanent side effects Inconvenient and expensive The stage is set for much-needed alternative therapies

17 The most effective conventional and alternative treatments
Part II The most effective conventional and alternative treatments

18 Three forms of Lyme bacteria each must be addressed
Spirochete form Conventionally believed to be primary form but in fact, only a small part of the problem Most mobile form, responsible for rapidly spreading infection Spiral, drill-capable shape allows penetration into brain, cartilage, bone Primary treatment goal to kill spirochetes without inducing their conversion to other two forms

19 Cell-wall-deficient form
Also known as variant form or L-form Much smaller and less mobile than spirochetes Can cause horrific disease conditions including autoimmunity and worsening of regular Lyme symptoms L-form bacteria were once spirochetes, conversion occurred to allow survival of cell wall inhibiting antibiotics and other adverse conditions Very difficult to kill Capable of Intracellular infection Current rife technology does not kill them – other treatments are necessary

20 Cyst Form Most protective form, assumed when conditions are most hostile Spirochetes convert to cysts in minutes Cannot be killed by heat, oxygen, hydrogen peroxide, ozone, freezing, starvation, cell wall inhibiting and protein synthesis inhibiting antibiotics. Does not cause symptoms Can convert back to spirochete and variant form at any time Can aid in reproduction – one spirochete can produce multiple cysts Reason for false “cure” followed by unexpected relapse Spirochetes are intact within cyst Current rife technology does not kill them – special treatment is necessary

21 Killing the infection 3 treatments for 3 bacterial forms
Rife therapy for spirochete form Invented/discovered by Doug MacLean in the early 1980s Entire family infected - antibiotics failed Laboratory in basement of home – observed spirochetes being killed by electromagnetic frequencies, then cured himself and family One of the “fathers” of modern rife technology Very effective – bacterial shape possibly contributes to susceptibility Treat every 3-10 days Rife used to fight Lyme disease for more than 20 years Herxheimer reactions evidence effectiveness Frequencies on page 115 of my book or in the CAFL 4 specific machines have proven most effective

22 Doug Machine (a.k.a. Coil Machine or QSC1850HD Machine)
Longest track record Frequency range: Hz Build it yourself for $1100 Building instructions at Purchase for $2400

23 EMEM Machine (a.k.a. Plasma Machine)
More affordable, portable, easier to use than coil machine Frequency range: 20-10,000 Hz Build it yourself or purchase for $ Very effective, but probably less effective than coil machine Many models available, only a few are effective EMEM5 EMEM3D EMEM3DV

24 High Power Magnetic Pulser
High Power Magnetic Pulser (HPMP) DC machine - does not use frequencies Purchase for approx. $650 In addition to killing bacteria, this machine has many other healing benefits Works well in combination with an AC machine Body-size coil reaches deep tissues and entrenched infection Battery powered High Power Magnetic Pulser

25 Most effective contact machine according to available user reports
GB Amplifier Most effective contact machine according to available user reports MHz carrier frequency is mandatory Amplifier is mandatory Best to combine with a radiant machine Purchase for approximately $2400 EMEM5 GB4000 Contact Machine Accessory Package Mandatory amplifier

26 Not just effective, rife therapy is also
Affordable Convenient Non-toxic Autonomous from the medical establishment These qualities are especially important in the context of a 1-3 year treatment campaign

27 Marshall Protocol for cell-wall-deficient form
Invented by Trevor Marshall, Ph.D., to treat sarcoidosis Colossal breakthrough in infectious disease medicine Components Protein synthesis inhibiting antibiotics: macrolides (azithromycin and clarithromycin), tetracyclines (minocycline, demeclocycline) and lincosamides (clindamycin) Sun and vitamin D avoidance Benicar® (olmesartan medoxomil)  Successfully treats numerous “incurable” diseases! Antibiotics 10x more effective so 1/10 dose needed Vicious herxheimer reactions indicate effectiveness Rosner: take breaks from the protocol. Marshall: do not. Requires trained physician supervision: more information, doctor referral, at New and radically different paradigm, so spend time researching this – learn more at Dr. Marshall

28 Antibiotics, careful timing, for cyst form
Norwegian scientists, Brorsons, published 9 studies on susceptibility of cysts to various antibiotics 5-nitromidizoles most effective: Flagyl® (metronidazole) Tindamax® (tinidazole) Ornidazole (New Zealand, Australia: Tiberal ®) Secnidazole, compounded, Apothe'Cure Pharmacy, Dallas, TX (972) Very strong herxheimer reactions Not sufficiently effective Most effective cyst treatment strategy is long breaks from all antibiotics During breaks, cysts convert to rife-susceptible spirochete form More cysts = longer recovery, 6-48 months, cysts most likely to convert in spring and fall Process similar to peeling layers off an onion Can be mistaken for relapse – without rife, it is a relapse! If antibiotics used continuously, peeling stops, you will never recover!

29 Antibiotics to Avoid: cell wall inhibitors Cause conversion to cyst, cell-wall-deficient form
All penicillins (and similar) Examples: Amoxicillin (Amoxil®, Trimox®), Amoxicillin and Clavulanate (Augmentin®), Ampicillin (Principen®, Totacillin®), Penicillin G (Bicillin C-R®, Bicillin L-A®, Pfizerpen®) All cephalosporins (and similar) Examples: Cefaclor (Ceclor®), Cefadroxil (Duricef®), Cefazolin (Ancef®, Kefzol®), Cefdinir (Omnicef®), Cefixime (Suprax®), Cefotaxime (Claforan®), Cefprozil (Cefzil®), Ceftibuten (Cedax®), Ceftriaxone (Rocephin®), (Keflex®, Keftab®), Imipenem and Cilastatin (Primaxin I.V.®), Warning! Severe disease worsening!

30 Supportive treatments and resources
Part III Supportive treatments and resources

31 Mercury chelation Lyme sufferers are more likely to be mercury poisoned than other people – Lyme bacteria stores and utilizes Mercury Many wrong ways to get Mercury out, one right way World’s leading expert on mercury chelation is Andrew Cutler, Ph.D. – lives in Seattle Mercury chelation is often necessary throughout entire recovery process Avoid IV chelation at all costs Oral chelators of choice are DMPS and alpha lipoic acid Learn more at

32 Systemic enzyme supplementation (Wobenzym®)
Take between meals – not a digestive aid Enzymes are absorbed into systemic circulation Contains protein-digesting, proteolytic enzymes known as proteases Numerous benefits: Anti-inflammatory Antibiotic action Cleans blood of protein debris Immunomodulatory effects Rapid symptom improvement Reduces symptoms of the herx reaction without suppressing immune activity…digests bacterial proteins and neurotoxins

33 Lifestyle Factors Diet Aerobic exercise Mandatory for recovery Rest
Avoid processed sugar Avoid alcohol Avoid smoking Common sense, healthy diet Aerobic exercise Mandatory for recovery Only in moderation, increase as tolerated Oxygenates tissues, moves lymphatic system, detoxifies, helps digestion, balances brain chemistry Rest Adequate sleep is essential Rest between aerobic workouts until completely recovered Avoid adrenal exhaustion by learning to manage stress
