Lyme Disease - The Bigger Picture


Excerpts From An Interview with Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt

Lyme disease has a new definition, it is an illness transferred by insects, it is not just tick-borne. And it is a spirochete illness. In perspective, some of the carriers of spirochete illness include Nietzche, Mozart, and Beethoven. All three had the spirochete illness called syphilis, which clearly contributed to the enormous creativity, clairvoyance, and journey into the invisible, parallel world around us. They either died or lost one of their 5 senses from the treatment (mercury poisoning) of syphilis, but not the disease itself. (It’s true that King Henry VIII was made from syphilis in the brain. But he did not have a mercury treatment.) Spirochetes have been around for thousands of years. From an evolutionary viewpoint, nature is trying to incorporate our genome with its genome, with the possibility of our evolution to a higher plane. Most of the time things do not go so well for us. On a darker note, some government documents show that governments, worldwide, have experimented with recombining different microbes in order to create harmful microbes that affect large populations, making them sick so that they lose their will to fight. Some forms of Lyme disease are actually microbes that have been developed by humans. Comparing Europe and the U.S., people in this country are sicker, have less energy. In this country Lyme is a deadlier disease. Under napoleon, Bartonella, a co-infection of Lyme caused trench fever, a nasty bug. However, under the Russians, one of their generals was a homeopath and had thousands of his soldiers taking homeopathic dilutions. He saved hundreds of thousands of lives.

It is suspected that exposure to electromagnetic fields and the microwaves from cell phone radiation are increasing the virulence of many microbes, usually a natural part of our body, making them more aggressive and dangerous. Our immune system is also under attack and becoming weaker. With chronic Lyme, there is somewhere in the body a chronic infection. What is the most direct way to treat it?

There is a great variety of Lyme, depending on where people contract it. There is also a great variation of the disease depending on what co-infection the patient has, and what infections transferred at the same time in the same insect bite. There are 7 or 8 common microbes. The worst are Babesia microti and different forms of Bartonella. Underlying this is an infection with Mycoplasma which becomes symptomatic when the immune system becomes suppressed by Lyme spirochetes. Along with Lyme co-infections there are opportunistic infections where the immune system becomes so suppressed that the Lyme sufferer becomes vulnerable to other forms of parasites that include Babesia, Giardia, amoeba, Trichomonas, malaria, and a newly discovered infection FL 1953, discovered by Stephen Frye. It is a protozoan organism that causes debilitating fatigue and illness in chronically ill people, usually present with Lyme disease. A lot of people also have worms, both visible and invisible.

Factors that influence Lyme disease in a person are: *genetics *nutrition *emotional background *exposure to electrosmog.

Expressions of the disease include the following:

  • Orthopedic – knee and hop pain. Lyme lives in joints. Ozone treatments, putting ozone in the joints will kill spirochetes and completely relieve pain.
  • Connective tissue – vague and dispersed pain as in fibromyalgia.
  • Immune expression – autoimmunity, including rheumatoid arthritis – the disease is unresponsive to antibiotics.
  • Gastroenterological (Babesia) – constant stomach problems, ulcers, indigestion, constipation, poor food absorption. Associated with pancreatitus or hepatitis. An aggressive treatment of parasites is required.
  • Neurological illness – includes MS, chronic fatigue, A.L.S, vague neurological symptoms such as buzzing in the head and on the skin, crawling under the skin. These symptoms, indicating spirochetes, were described in homeopathy over 400 years ago.
  • Insomnia with headaches and other pain syndromes.

A Testing Conundrum

The key to treating Lyme disease (or any other disease) is diagnoses. There are available commercial tests to detect chronic infections. They are based on immune reactions to invading microbes producing LgG and Ig antibodies, the white blood cells that come out to kill microbes. However, the main cells that get infected with Lyme spirochetes are the white cells. And when they are infected, they lose their ability to produce antibodies. Therefore, Lyme disease needs to be treated first so that the immune system can respond well enough for the lab to detect it.

Another test is direct microscopy. It looks at the blood and does not depend on the immune system. A problem with this commercial test (the FISH test for Babesia is done on the blood.) for Babesia is that this microbe resides mainly in the central nervous system, the joints, and the connective tissue. The presence in the blood is not a concern because Babesia doesn’t live in the blood.

Autonomic response testing is most desirable when a doctor needs to penetrate deeper into the system of the patient. Specific reflexes are connected to specific illnesses. Through a physical history, signs on the skin, palpating (examining by touch) the skin, testing neurological reflexes, orthopedic tests (correcting deformities of the extremities), and muscle testing, a tentative diagnoses can be made.

The best lab for testing is IGeneX Lab in Palo Alto, Calif. They use 2 different antigens( toxin or foreign substance introduced into the body causing an immune response and producing antibodies). Commercial labs and hospitals usually under-diagnose or misdiagnose Lyme disease by using only one antigen. Other co-infections, such as Babesia are much harder to diagnose. The best test (hemobartonella – Bartonella in the blooc) for Bartonella is done at the Fry Labs (Steven Fry) in Arizona. Bartonella lives in the nervous system. If you find it in the blood it indicates that there are high amounts in other tissues of the body.

There is one indirect and accurate test for Lyme (Borrelia burgdorferia) that is done by Labcorp, a national U.S. testing lab reimbursed by CDPHP. It’s not listed so you have to ask for it. It’s the CD57 test. CD-57 is a group of natural killer cells that are always suppressed by Lyme spirochetes. If their numbers drop below a certain level, the patient usually has Lyme disease. The Spiro Stat, the newest test and most promising, is being increasingly used as the main test for Lyme.
