Detoxify From Lyme Disease
All individuals with, or who have had, Lyme disease should detoxify. Understanding that Lyme bacteria (spirochetes) can create a shield called biofilm to protect themselves, these bacteria are shielded from many medications.
The biofilm can also block your immune system from finding the bacteria. This is how the biofilm is just like a safe house that protects the bacteria from being killed by drugs or your immune system. When you go off medications, they can re-emerge and create your symptoms all over again. Not only do Lyme bacteria create biofilms, so do other bugs in your system.
Other bacteria like staphylococcus (staph) and streptococcus (strep) can also create biofilms, which Lyme can hide in. According to Microbial Biofilms by Ghannoum and O'Toole, different bacteria like staph and strep also create biofilm shields.
When different bacteria congregate under a biofilm, they can share information with each other. Underneath a biofilm shield, different species of bacteria can swap genetic information. In Microbial Biofilms, they cite studies, which estimate that the Lyme bacteria have received one out of thousand genes from other species.
Gene exchange happens quite frequently among different bacteria in a biofilm. This exchange may lead to a dangerous mutated form of the Lyme bacteria. Unfortunately, Lyme bacteria may obtain drug resistant genes from other bacteria. If Lyme bacteria were to obtain resistance to antibiotics, this could create a drug- resistant monster.
Given that Lyme bacteria reproduce quickly, it would only take a few generations for a drug resistant strain of Lyme bacteria to populate your system. Drug-resistant Lyme bacteria may be an explanation for why it can survive despite years of treatment with multiple antibiotics.
Once the Lyme bacteria are killed, one must help the body remove the endotoxins that spirochetes release in the body once they're killed.
Repressing or suppressing viral conditions (by drugs or medication) may lead to severe, chronic and/or degenerative symptoms. Toxins in our body could weaken our immune system and may even cause damage to the nervous system, which can lead to illness, chronic disease and premature aging and oxidative stress on the body.
Toxins are stored in our liver, body fat, lymphatic system, joints, muscles, gut, brain and other parts of the body. You can take steps to help reduce the burden toxins place of
How To Detoxify
There are many ways to detoxify, some more effective than others, but there is a new gentle non-invasive whole-body approach that uses cold lasers. The laser is programmed with frequencies that are used on the lymphatic system and cleansing organs while the feet or hands are in an ionic foot bath for 25 to 30 minutes.
Releasing toxins and relieving stress on your cleansing organs should feel make you feel comfortable and relaxed. You should also learn about proper nutrition, drink ionized water, consume plant enzymes and find a sound nutritional approach to guard your thyroid.
It is recognized that using de-stressor and relaxation techniques helps to guard you from the number one killer of mankind, which is still heart disease and heart attacks.
