More About Lyme Disease
Aritcle by Joseph Cataldo NDH
Lyme disease is an epidemic which has dramatically affected the entire world.
What is Lyme?
Lyme disease is an infectious disease caused by a Spirochete bacterium - usually Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato - which is transmitted to people by deer ticks, mosquitos, brown recluse spiders, flies, ants, birds, mice, lizards, blood transfusion, and unprotected sex.
Let us take a short tour at the world wide epidemic...
Lyme disease gets its name from Lyme, Connecticut, where a group of teens suffered from a mysterious arthritic condition in the mid-1970s. By the late 1970s, U.S. scientists determined that infected ticks transmitted the disease. In 1981, Swiss-American researcher Willy Burgdorferi identified the spirochete bacterium, which he named after himself, Borrelia burgdorferi.
As a result of these findings, many people think Lyme is an American disease. But as early as the 1920’s, Swedish and Austrian doctors documented the hallmark red rash of Lyme. Earlier reports describe a biting insect and debilitating arthritis that point to Lyme disease in Europe. We now know that Lyme disease occurs on various continents around the world.
According to the (CDC), reported cases of Lyme have been steadily rising since national surveillance began in 1982. In 2008 there were some 30,000 reported cases of Lyme disease and 35,000 reported cases in 2009. however, these numbers are grossly underreported. Lyme disease cases are consistently rising. The highest incidence each year happens in Eastern states from Maryland to Maine and in Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, and parts of northern California and southern Oregon.
However, people are diagnosed with Lyme live in every state.
Ticks in the United States carry mainly Borrelia burgdorferi. In Canada, Lyme cases are also increasing. As of 2010, Lyme disease was reportable to provincial and national health services. According to the Canadian government, the areas that pose the highest risk of exposure to ticks carrying Borrelia burgdorferi are southern British Columbia, southeastern Manitoba, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, southern and eastern Ontario, and southern and southeastern Quebec.
It’s important to note that official Lyme statistics can be deceiving. They are grossly under reported in the U.S and Canada. In the U.S. not all doctors who treat people for Lyme report these cases for fear of retribution by medical licensing boards. Unfortunately some medical doctors have lost their licenses for treating Lyme disease.
Lyme cases have also been reported in Mexico. In fact, there is some evidence that Borrelia burgdorferi infection may be as endemic in Mexico as it is in the U.S. and Canada.
Europe has a comparable number of Borrelia cases as the U.S. according to the European Commission. Particularly high-risk areas are the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovenia, and other central and eastern European nations. Many European countries have been slow to adopt national Borrelia reporting laws. European ticks carry eight known species of Borrelia. They are the Afzelii, Bavarienses, Sensu stricto, Garinii, spielmanii, Valaisiana, Lusitaniae, and the Bissetii.
The number of cases of Borrelia in Asian countries are more difficult to track. But the infection does occur, primarily in China and Russia and to a lesser extent in Korea and Japan. Cases are typically more concentrated in the northern, temperate regions as in the rest of the world. The first case of Lyme disease in China was reported in 1986 and is likely that the spirochete migrated from Europe. Lyme Borrelia is also endemic to the Baltic regions of Russia.
Many originally thought that Japan, an island nation, was protected from Borrelia. However, genetic studies of infection show that the spirochete can travel from Mainland China to Japan in migratory birds. The birds then provide a blood meal to local ticks or the Chinese ticks hitch a ride on the birds themselves. These ticks then feed on and infect humans or live on Japanese rodents.
South America, Africa, Australia
Lyme disease/Borreliosis has rarely occurred in tropical regions, mainly because ticks and their reservoir animals are not common in these areas.
When rare cases have been reported, it’s more likely these patients got infected when they traveled outside their country to endemic areas. However, doctors in Brazil are watching a Lyme-like syndrome that seems to be increasing.
The presence of Borrelia species capable of causing human disease in Australia continues to be a matter of debate. But there are thousands of suspected cases in Australia. In short, Borrelia Burgdorferi and its many strains appears in many countries besides the U.S. Add to that the fact that in many countries other tick-borne diseases are also on the rise so it’s clear that tick-borne illnesses are a growing public health problem worldwide.
Effects on our physiology
How does Lyme disease affect the body?
First the infected bug or many of its carriers has to bite you. When it is a tick, it bites in an unusual way. First, a tick spreads antihistamines and other numbing agents on the skin so the bite isn’t noticed. Then cementum, a glue like substance is excreted so the bug can fasten itself to the victim. Next the tick gets it’s jawbones into the flesh and goes for a ride. It will spend five to seven days on a deer or a mouse but less time on a human.
When humans are infected with the Spirochete bacteria it can go anywhere in the body including soft tissues and joints but particularly the major organs like the heart, lungs, liver, the optic nerve, spleen and can be passed from mother to child through the placenta. It pass the blood brain barrier, infecting the brain. The unnerving part of this process is that the majority of those infected don’t even know it!
The medical community has a difficult time to diagnose Lyme because the Borrelia has the ability to impersonate a host of other diseases. As a result patients are treated for a variety of non-existing diseases with a host of dangerous drugs. I have listed a few of the most common imposters.
For this very reason there are millions of individuals with Lyme who don’t know they have it or are treated for the wrong medical issue.
How would you know if you have Lyme disease?
If you see a tick on your body and then develop a rash there is a good chance that You may develop Lyme disease. Only 30-40% of those bitten develop a rash. 20-30% develop joint pain and swelling. The other 60-70 % don’t get a rash. They still could have Lyme disease but not from a tick. As mentioned earlier there are other ways to get Lyme disease. Among them are: brown recluse spiders, flies, ants, birds, mice, lizard’s, blood transfusion, and unprotected sex.
What are the symptoms?
You may develop bouts of severe joint pain and swelling. The knees are especially likely to be affected, but the pain can shift from one joint to another. Because Lyme has a four week cycle it is active then it goes dormant, then it is active then dormant. This cycles back and forth.
There would be Neurological problems. Weeks, months or even years after the infection there could be inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain (meningitis), temporary paralysis of one side of the face (Bell's palsy), numbness or weakness in the limbs and feet along with impaired muscle movement, and damaging the Myelin sheath.
There might be Heart problems, such as an irregular heartbeat or eye inflammation, liver inflammation (hepatitis), severe fatigue, migraines and even unexplained seizures just to mention a few.
These symptoms are not taken seriously by the medical community which is the reason why there is so much misdiagnosis with Lyme Disease. Generally the patient is told there is nothing seriously wrong with them and they need psychological help. Meanwhile the Spirochete bacteria is spreading causing more damage to the cells, organs and body systems.
What is the best way to test for Lyme?
Since its inception, the main focus has been the development of an accurate test for the Borrelia burgdorferi antigen, the causative agent of Lyme disease.
According to a clinical study presented at a Lyme Disease Association Conference in 2003, of the tests available, the PCR is only 35% accurate for blood testing, and the Western Blot is only 50 - 60% accurate for blood testing. Other Lyme tests like the LUAT and ELISA fall below these levels of accuracy, when testing for Lyme disease a blood test is not the answer.
Dark field Microscopy?
Dark Field Microscopy is a proven way to detect Lyme spirochetes in the blood, as long as they are in the blood at that point in time when the needle is present!
But the spirochetes move around the body and the cells so if they not in the blood at the point of testing it is difficult to ascertain if Lyme is present.
Energy testing is accurate.
The most accurate testing for Lyme or any other major issues is the (Computerized Electro Dermal Stress Analysis) machine. The CEDSA It is 94% accurate.
How does it work?
The computer measures the degree of electrical resistance of the acupuncture points. located in the hands. This measurements indicates balances or imbalances in the various organ systems of the body and can detect low level reactions. It also indicates which nutritional, homeopathic, herbal, or Rife program is best for that client to bring everything back in balance.
Not only can we test for Lyme with the CEDSA we can determine if the infection came from a tick, a spider, a fly, an ant, a lizard or by some other means. The amount of time that has passed from the time of the infection to the present. We can test for all of the co-infections and secondary infections, and them determine which True Rife protocol is most effective for that client.
How to destroy Lyme
A medical doctor will do one of two things.
1) They will put you on antibiotics for a year or more. And antibiotics will help a little but, the majority of the bacteria will however, embed themselves deeper in the tissues, organs and systems of the body.
2) When the antibiotics don’t work you will be advised to seek psychological help.
Homeopathy works but it is a very slow process. Herbs like Samento, Teasel Root and other Lyme homeopathies do work but are very slow. I tested a client to see how long it would take to eradicate the Borrelia bacteria from his body with homeopathies alone, it would take 3 to 4 years or more! Some individuals can only afford to do homeopathies and that is fine, it just takes more time. TrueRife is the BEST solution for Lyme Disease.
How does the TrueRife machine work?
Microorganisms (including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites ) each have a specific vibratory frequency, or “Mortal Oscillatory Rate” to which they can be exposed, resulting in their deactivation or death. A TrueRife machine is the electronic apparatus used to deliver the frequency to the body. It delivers this frequency by applying an invisible electromagnetic field to the body and disables targeted micro- organisms.
When the unwanted microorganism is exposed to its Mortal Oscillatory Rate, it literally oscillates or vibrates to the point of being damaged or killed. This resonating effect is similar to the way an opera singer can shatter a glass with the right musical note, or pitch without destroying the table the glass is on.
There is much clinical and empirical evidence demonstrating the effectiveness of the TrueRife in eradicating Lyme Disease. For those whose lives have been destroyed by this bacteria this is a valuable solution.
The success of complete eradication of Lyme from the body depends on the following:
1. How many strains of the Lyme bacteria are in the body? There are 8 different types.
2. Some individuals have co-infections like Babesia, Ehrlichiosis and Bartonella. Then there are secondary infections, like Mycoplasma Fermentans, Candida, Herpes VI E, Cytomegalovirus as well as Epstein bar.
3. What Miasms are effecting the individual’s physiology: Sycosis, Syphilinum, Tuberculinum or a combination of them?
4. How willing is the person to make diet and lifestyle changes to support a full recovery?
5. What other medical issues is the person dealing with besides Lyme Disease?
Where do we go from here?
This is where I come in.
As a doctor of natural health I have been using the TrueRife machine for the past 10 years. In fact, in our office we have three machines.
With the EDS testing we test for Lyme, all the co-infections and the secondary infections as well. A protocol is designed using the TrueRife, diet and lifestyle changes and homeopathies. We hit the Lyme from both ends. This will cut the time by 30-40%.
The big Question that everybody wants to know is this: Does TrueRife really work?
Let me begin by relating to you my personal experience with TrueRife. Three years ago I was infected with Borrelia burgdorferi or Lyme disease from a mosquito bite. My wife, Aksana, tested me and found not only the Lyme but all the co-infections and multiple secondary infections. To say I was ill would be an understatement.
Some of my notable symptoms were mental confusion, memory loss, joint pains that would travel to different parts of my body at different times, unexplained chills, anxiety, poor concentration, fatigue, insomnia and a general sick feeling. I followed a regimen of homeopathic and inconsistent TrueRife therapy. All of our machines were busy so I used the machines in a hit or miss fashion. When tested I showed only a 30% improvement in a year! So it was necessary to purchase another machine for my personal use. Once I got on the appropriate nightly protocol with the overnight Lyme sets I found results of 100% in 6 months. I was elated and so was my family! All the co-infections and secondary infections were gone!
Experiences of various clients:
A. A mother of two boys experienced severe fatigue and mental confusion. She felt she was not going to survive what was happening to her. When Lyme was discovered at her CEDSA test we started her on a TrueRife protocol 2-3 times a week which included the lights and foot baths. In 6 months she was only 40% clear so we encouraged her to get her own machine so she could progress more quickly. She was able to get the funding and within the next 6 months she was totally free of the Lyme. Diet and lifestyle coaching were part of her program. Today she is healthy and very happy mother…plus an avid believer in the power of TrueRife!
B. This young woman was suffering from mental confusion, short term memory loss, extreme tiredness, there were days she could not get out of bed to take care her 4 year old son. We did a full assessment and discovered Lyme among other issues. We put her under a TrueRife light but she couldn’t tolerate the noise level of the bulb. The Lyme was in her brain. We used the overnight bulb for treatments in the office. Once she got her own machine she used the overnight bulb consistently and was able to get rid of her Lyme.
C. A nurse from another state came home with a debilitating illness. No hospital or doctor could identify the cause of her condition. They suggested a psychological evaluation. We tested her on the CEDSA and found Lyme plus all the co-infections and secondary infections. That included Epstein Barr, Herpes, Candida and several serious parasites and bacterial infections. She came daily to address various issues of her health. In 6 months she went back to her nursing profession with NO Lyme, co-infections, secondary infections, virus, bacteria or parasites. TrueRife saved her life!
What is the future of energy medicine?
Allow me to relate one last example. The experiment took place in Paris the scientist took a guinea pig heart and by using acetylcholine and histamine to dilate the blood vessels and then using atropine and mepyramine which are the standard drugs that one would use in a heart transplant surgery to keep the donor heart alive, and keep a regular heart beat so that it does not over beat of under beat. Those drugs would normally be present.
The only unusual aspect of the experiment was that the agents of change weren’t actually pharmacological chemical but low frequency waves of electromagnetic signals. They did not use the drugs they kept the heart alive by using the frequencies of those drugs, by projecting sound waves at the heart. Sound waves, frequencies, that kept the heart alive. There was no actual drug injected in the heart.
That heart stayed alive by frequency response alone, that means that as long as they hit the frequency of that heart on pitch they could keep that heart alive indefinitely.
Think what could be accomplished if all the brilliant minds of the world would concentrate on developing energy medicine instead of always trying to reinvent the wheel.
