When Antibiotics Fail

Release Date: 2005
Genre: Health & Fitness

WHY RIFE MACHINES? Lyme Disease is caused by Borrelia Burgdorferi, a spirochete bacteria similar to the bacteria that causes Syphilis . Lyme Disease is known as the “Great Imitator” – It can masquerade as Attention Deficit Disorder , Chronic Fatigue Syndrome , Fibromyalgia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder , Alzheimer's Disease , Schizophrenia , Depression , Multiple Sclerosis , arthritis , heart conditions, and more. The July, 2004 issue of Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients indicates that Lyme Disease is thought to be the fastest spreading infectious disease in the world, with more than 200,000 new cases per year in the United States alone. Lyme Disease tests are notoriously inaccurate, leading to rampant under-diagnosis of the disease (See Appendix A ). But even the people who are lucky enough to receive an accurate diagnosis do not always respond to antibiotic therapy. Aggressive antibiotic therapy, applied by a Lyme Literate Medical Doctor (LLMD), sometimes fails to provide a cure. Many patients take antibiotics for years, often in combinations of two or three drugs simultaneously – yet in some cases the infection becomes chronic anyway, and numerous Lyme Disease sufferers end up staying sick, losing their jobs, getting dropped by insurance companies, going broke, and losing hope. These monumentally discouraging obstacles facing Lyme Disease sufferers have led many of them to explore the rife machine treatment option, a promising electromagnetic therapy which often works after antibiotics fail.

Gone in a Heartbeat

Author: Neil Spector
Publisher: Nautilus Publishing
ISBN: 1936946424
Release Date: 2015
Genre: Healing

Dr. Neil Spector, one of the nation's top oncologists, led a charmed life. He was educated at prestigious universities, trained at top medical centers, and had married the woman of his dreams. It seemed too perfect. And it was. In 1994, it all came crashing down. He and his wife lost two unborn children. And a mysterious illness brought him to the brink of death. In his compelling memoir, Gone in a Heartbeat, Dr. Spector describes in great detail how he was misdiagnosed and, despite being a medical insider, was often discounted by his fellow physicians. As he recounts his own unorthodox approach to medicine and physician/patient relationships, Dr. Spector encourages readers to never surrender their power to a third party. He tells of courageous patients who served as role models, he concedes that doctors do a disservice to patients when "we treat them like statistics," and he advocates for educated patients who can make informed decisions collaboratively and not simply follow instructions. In Dr. Spector's words: "To recognize that we are in control of our own bodies and destinies can be a powerful step toward true healing." Readers of Gone in a Heartbeat will never view the medical profession the same again.

Healing Chronic Illness

Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

Most of us believe that healing miracles for the chronically ill are real, but rare. The doctrines that we have been fed, or our life's experiences, have led us to conclude that God heals mostly through medicine-and if not through medicine, then not at all. Perhaps we had a relative who had sky-high faith for a healing miracle and yet died, or have trodden the path of faith healing, but been discouraged by ministers who admonished us to "just have more faith!" Perhaps we don't know how much God really loves us. While our faith in miracles and His love may not be enough, thankfully, God is, and He is willing to heal more people supernaturally-in body, mind and spirit-than are being healed today. He can heal when medicine fails to provide a complete recovery, and even when it doesn't! This book proposes to the helpless and hopeless, another path to wellness, that isn't based upon wishful thinking and random chance, but rather, buried Biblical truths and the testimonials of thousands throughout the world. It offers unique insights into healing which include: how dysfunctional biochemistry and emotional trauma affect our ability to believe in a loving God who heals; why people who have faith for miracles aren't always made well; why God sometimes chooses other healing methods besides a supernatural encounter to heal, and how we can better position ourselves to receive a miracle from Him.

Healing Lyme Disease Naturally

Author: Wolf D. Storl
Publisher: North Atlantic Books
ISBN: 9781583944370
Release Date: 2011-07-26
Genre: Medical

In Healing Lyme Disease Naturally, anthropologist Wolf D. Storl shares his own success in overcoming a difficult, sometimes deadly disease that is reaching epidemic proportions. When he was diagnosed, Dr. Storl refused standard treatments because of antibiotic intolerance. Instead, he researched healing systems of various cultures including Traditional Chinese Medicine, American Indian healing practices, homeopathy, and traditional Western herbal lore and discovered the teasel root. Teasel, a flowering plant that grows throughout Europe and Asia, tonifies the liver and kidneys, promotes blood circulation, and strengthens the bones and tendons. The plant has been documented to help cure chronic conditions marked by arthritis, sore, stiff muscles, and eventual incapacitation—all symptoms associated with Lyme disease. Dr. Storl’s approach consists of flushing out toxins and inhibiting bacteria by using teasel root as tincture, powder, or tea (available for purchase online and in natural foods stores); stimulating the immune system and detoxifying the body by exposing it to extreme heat (sweat lodges and Japanese baths); and dietary and naturopathic measures, including fresh natural food, exercise, and sufficient sleep. Written in an encouraging, personal tone but based in science and clinical studies, Healing Lyme Disease Naturally offers hope in combating a condition that has stubbornly resisted conventional medical treatment.

A comprehensive, natural approach to treating acute and chronic Lyme disease, from a leading naturopathic physician who has managed his symptoms for more than fifteen years.

Now, in The Lyme Solution, Dr. Darin Ingels shares his revolutionary approach to treating and healing acute and chronic Lyme. Drawing on his experience as a naturopathic physician who has treated thousands of cases, and as a patient, Ingels reveals that Lyme is an autoimmune disease as much as it is an infection.

Including the latest research about the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme, Ingels's uniquely holistic approach provides a path to wellness by fortifying the microbiome, enhancing the immune system, and strengthening the body's ability to heal from within. The Lyme Solution offers a simple, five-step plan, including: * the most effective early treatment and prevention measures to avoid contracting the disease or stop it in its tracks; * an Immune Boosting Diet and list of herbal supplements that will increase immunity and reduce inflammation; * guidelines for when and how to use antibiotics as an effective part of your treatment plan; * tools to identify and eliminate conditions that mimic Lyme disease or exacerbate your symptoms. Whether you are facing acute or chronic Lyme, or undiagnosed autoimmune symptoms, the natural, whole-body approach of The Lyme Solution will help you permanently recover your health, and reclaim your life.

Healing Lyme Disease Coinfections

Author: Stephen Harrod Buhner
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
ISBN: 9781620551370
Release Date: 2013-05-05
Genre: Health & Fitness

A guide to the natural treatment of two of the most common and damaging coinfections of Lyme disease--Bartonella and Mycoplasma • Reveals how these conditions often go undiagnosed, complicate Lyme treatment, and cause a host of symptoms--from arthritis to severe brain dysfunction • Outlines natural treatments for both infections, with herbs and supplements for specific symptoms and to combat overreactions of the immune system • Reviews the latest scientific research on Bartonella and Mycoplasma coinfections and how treatment with antibiotics is often ineffective Each year Harvard researchers estimate there are nearly 250,000 new Lyme disease infections--only 10 percent of which will be accurately diagnosed. One of the largest factors in misdiagnosis of Lyme is the presence of other tick-borne infections, which mask or aggravate the symptoms of Lyme disease as well as complicate treatment. Two of the most common and damaging Lyme coinfections are Bartonella and Mycoplasma. Nearly 35 million people in the United States are asymptomatically infected with each of these pathogens, and at least 10 percent will become symptomatic every year--with symptoms ranging from arthritis to severe brain dysfunction. Distilling hundreds of peer-reviewed journal articles on the latest scientific research on Bartonella, Mycoplasma, and Lyme disease, Stephen Buhner examines the complex synergy between these infections and reveals how all three can go undiagnosed or resurface after antibiotic treatment. He explains how these coinfections create cytokine cascades in the body--essentially sending the immune system into an overblown, uncontrolled response in much the same way that rheumatoid arthritis or cancer can. Detailing effective natural holistic methods centered on herbs and supplements, such as the systemic antibacterial herb Sida acuta, which acts to protect blood cells from invading organisms, he reveals how to treat specific symptoms, interrupt the cytokine cascades, and bring the immune system back into balance as well as complement ongoing Lyme disease treatments.
