Well, at the time of writing this it’s been about a week since I knew my 8 year old son had Lyme Disease. The tests have not come back yet, but it’s pretty obvious when you see the bulls eye rash and the horrible fatigue and muscle pain that he was in.
I have helped improved the function of numerous patients with Lyme Disease in the past, but this is much closer to home. It’s hard to see your kid in such pain, and just knocked out with fatigue. Especially since he was the highly active one!
We’re constantly trying to slow him down.
While the average kid in America has taken numerous medications, our kids have never taken any medical drug….
My other son, just last summer was bit by mosquitoes terribly at a family reunion camping trip. His entire body was covered and he just couldn’t stop scratching them.
Well, he ended up with a blood infection and pustules were starting to pop out of his skin. We started to use herbals and silver hydrosol both internally and externally on the pustules. He was starting to improve, but we still opted to get an antibiotic.
He probably didn’t need it, but I am not one of those doctors who is completely against modern medicine.
Within no time he was doing better and the pustules were drying up. And when I say pustules, some of these things were 2 inches in diameter. They were huge.
So, our kids have been very healthy, never been vaccinated, and only needed an antibiotic in one emergency case.
So back to the Lyme Disease.
I wanted to use an antibiotic, particularly Doxycycline if possible.
However, this was in no way shape or form going to be the only thing we would do.
I have found that Lyme is way more complicated than simply taking an antibiotic for 21 days and believing it is gone.
So, I knew we needed to combine the Doxycycline with herbs, mud packs, hydrochloric acid, and silver hydrosol.
We had an excellent Medical Doctor who agreed that is was most likely Lyme Disease and she too wanted to start immediately on Doxycycline. She had mentioned that the cut off was somewhere around 8-9 years old. A child younger than this would take Amoxicillin.
With the Doxycycline for my son, I then started testing his body using Applied Kinesiology and Quantum Reflex Analysis. I needed to make sure that all his organs were going to be supported once he started using the Doxycycline and there was die off.
Because I help support people through many infections such as parasites, fungus, bacteria, virus, etc. I knew that once those critters start dying, there can be die off symptoms and your body needs to process all of the dead material.
We need to keep testing him regularly to see what is changing and what his body needs to help clear out the Lyme and its co-infections.
Which brings me to the next part.
Using Herbs to Enhance the Immune System and Kill Infections
Lyme usually has several co-infections. Once the spirochete of Lyme gets in the body it drags the immune system down. And when you drag the immune system down, you open up the body for other infections because it is having a hard time keeping up.
This is where the herbs come in.
I and many other doctors have found that Mother Nature has a bounty of very powerful plants and herbs that help support the immune system and also act as antibiotic in a way.
I have used these herbs with great success for many years with patients having chronic infections that modern medicine could not clear up. The moral of the story is….
Never underestimate Mother Nature.
Technology is great, don’t get me wrong, but many answers to our current problems can be found in nature.
So, I used Applied Kinesiology and Quantum Reflex Analysis to determine which of the numerous herbs I have access to was the right one for his body. I don’t know why anybody would ever want to do this without these techniques.
The body is very selective. Just because an herb is reported in the scientific literature to be good for a certain type of infection, doesn’t mean it’s the right one for the person standing in front of you.
I can’t stress this enough.
You will have far better results if you can get YOUR body tested for which herbal/nutritional compound it needs.
The next thing we are doing with him is higher doses of Hydrochloric Acid (HCL)
HCL is manufactured in the stomach. It’s an acid, it’s what keeps the pH of the stomach very low and digests the food, along with enzymes. Back in the 1930’s HCL was used with tremendous success at clearing up infections. Several papers were written about it.
The chloric part of HCL is chlorine, a very powerful antiseptic.
With a high enough dose, it is theorized that the HCL strips the protective coating off of the spirochetes and allows the immune system to really see what it is up against.
This method has been used very successfully by Dr. Bob Marshall and many other Quantum Reflex Analysis (QRA) practitioners for knocking out Lyme whether acute or chronic.
The person is tested with QRA to determine what dosage per day of HCL is needed. In adults it is not uncommon for 60-75 HCL capsules per day spread out over their meals.
In my son, we determined that he would need 24 capsules per day, so 8 per meal towards the end of the meal. We work our way up to this therapeutic dose. Once the dose is hit, we then proceed to use this dose for 21 straight days.
I am not recommending anybody to just go out and do this. You need to be monitored to see how your body is doing, especially if you have any scars, surgeries, trauma sites, needle punctures like a vaccination site, tattoos, etc.
These create what we call Interference Fields that can sedate the normal nerve and energy flow to the stomach. If this happens, your stomach will have a hard time taking the extra HCL.
Mud Packing Interference Fields and the Tick Bite Site
Mud packing with a special kind of mud has to be one of the best kept secrets on the planet today. I first learned of mud packing a few years back from a company called Premier Research Labs and their Quantum Reflex Analysis training.
While mud has been used for thousands of years to help heal and detoxify the body, recently humans have gotten away from this time honored, important practice.
In the case of my son with Lyme Disease we only had to mud pack the actual tick site. Most people, however, won’t be so lucky. You see when we get traumas such as broken bones, surgical incisions, puncture wounds, and even things like earrings, tattoos, and other body piercings, our bodies become disrupted.
This disruption is known as an Interference Field.
In short, the normal nerve and energy flow of the site becomes disrupted. This affects the site directly, but it can also affect other areas of the body farther away. Here is a link to some examples of patients I have seen whose lives have been changed by mud packing.
This is by no means all the successes we have had with mud packing, but a small sample.
In the case of my son, we had already discovered and corrected all of his Interference Fields. Actually, he was the first person that I used this therapy with, and with tremendous success. The above link contains a link to his story, but I will give you a quick hint.
We corrected a lazy right eye with mud packing!
No need to wear glasses for that little guy. And the look on the ophthalmologists face when we took him in for his 1 year follow up was priceless. He took 10 minutes to recover because he was so stunned that we corrected his eye without letting him wear glasses.
Anyway, back to the Lyme.
Because we had already cleared up his interference fields, we only needed to do the tick bite/bulls eye rash itself. By putting the mud directly on the tick bite and leaving it on for anywhere between 10-20 minutes, toxins are pulled out of the body and into the mud.
We are effectively detoxifying the actual tick bite site.
I obviously have no reference to how long it would have taken for the rash to go away on its own, but I can report that in just a few days of starting the mud packing the rash was gone. Again, I have no idea if the mud packing sped this process up, but that isn’t the point.
We needed to detoxify the site regardless and there is no better way to do that than with special mud packs.
1, 2, sometimes 4 or more times per day I adjust my son’s nervous system.
Make note of the language there. I did not say I adjusted my son’s back, cracked his back, etc. There was no mention of his back at all. It’s his nervous system I am concerned about.
For those of you who may not know, chiropractic adjustments are one of the most powerful and potent nervous system harmonizers on the planet.
What does this mean?
It means that chiropractic helps enhance and restore the nervous system to proper function better than anything we know. And a healthy nervous system is vital.
Think about it this way…
What system controls the immune system?
You know, the boss, the CEO, the guy (or gal) giving orders. Something coordinates the immune system and tells it what to do, and that system is of course the central nervous system. In particular the brain and spinal cord.
When we give an adjustment, we are changing how the nervous system is functioning. We are changing brain patterns. Just looks at the graphic below. A picture is worth a thousand words.
The picture above represents an EEG of the brain. Basically the brainwaves. The pictures on the right and left have 2 sides to them. This represents both sides of the brain, the right and left side.
The picture on the left you can see doesn’t have much activity to it.
Contrast this to the picture on the right where we see much better activity. This second graph was taken 20 minutes after an adjustment.
The adjustment produced a change in brain wave activity that was quite striking.
I won’t say much more here, but if you want your body and brain functioning at a high level, ready to take on the world, and in this case a nasty little critter we call Lyme, then seeing a good Neurologically Based Chiropractor, typically one with experience in Applied Kinesiology (AK) and/or Koren Specific Technique (KST) is an absolute must.
Don’t skip this step because a nervous system functioning at subpar doesn’t have near the capacity to heal as one that is functioning at a high level.
Which car would you rather be driving in a race for $1 million?
Or a Ford Pinto?
It’s no different with the vehicle you are driving (your body).
That Sums It Up
Well, there you have it. That is what we are doing for my son to give him the best chance of not having any complications, or recurring chronic infections from Lyme Disease.
We could have just as easily used a powerful silver hydrosol solution in his acute phase also, but he is testing good right now. We might add this in after the 21 days of his Doxycycline and after he finishes 21 days on the HCL therapy. It would be recommended to do the silver hydrosol every waking hour at 1 tsp. We would use this more long term to make sure his cells and blood are cleaned out.
In case you haven’t noticed, I am not messing around with this.
Lyme isn’t something to take lightly. I have seen enough chronic Lyme patients to know that we need to knock this thing out the first time and get it over with.
The longer Lyme is allowed to be in your body, the harder it is to overcome.
