Re: Buhner's (herbs) CV and work experience

If promoting unproven cures to victims of a potentially deadly disease such as Lyme isn't "exploitation" then what is? like in promoting longterm antibiotics use (with its known and sometimes severe sideeffects) that is scientifically unproven for chronic lyme? Nick, are you becoming a "true believ...

Re: Buhner's (herbs) CV and work experience

Doesn't it seem mildly irresponsible to create a "protocol" and publish a book about it without first getting at least a few people to try it? the basic protocol herbs have a VERY long history of medicinal use, their side effects are relatively limited and generally well-known. These herbs have bee...

Re: Are spirochetes considered as bacteria?

The content of this article may be of some interest to those interested in this thread. yes, it's an interesting article that explains more about the differences between the various spirochetes. It is strongly based on statistical analysis of the different genomes and I have no idea how realistic t...

after taking it and ending up in hospital a few days later, I read on Lymenut (?) that it was referred to as 'The Gates of Hell'. that pretty much sums up my experience :evil:

Re: pubmed ... treatment of nervous system Lyme disease

3. I find it interesting that syphilis and now lyme are referred to as the great immitator, they both, I believe are caused by spirochetes and have very diffuse symptoms. yes, treponema pallidum (the organism that causes syphilis) and the borrelias are both spirochetes, even though they are genetic...

Re: Salp15 Binding to DC-SIGN Inhibits Cytokine Expression

I guess we now have to wait if the Steere/Wormser clan files a patent based on Salp15 to cure auto-immune diseases like chronic lyme :mrgreen:

Re: Are spirochetes considered as bacteria?

I assume (perhaps correctly, perhaps not) that there are a finite number of classification systems regarding bacteria and other similar "creatures." I also would guess that such systems were created at some point in time when human knowledge about such living things was fairly undeveloped and I won...

Re: pubmed ... treatment of nervous system Lyme disease

But---- we still use antibiotics to kill them. Hopefully. Maybe there will be a drug developed that called a spirochetalcidal (SP????) :) my point is that one should not expect AB to be extremely effective against spirochetes; this is one of the flawed assumptions I'm seeing in many IDSA articles (...

Re: Vitamins

BACKGROUND: Cystic fibrosis (CF) and short bowel syndrome (SBS) patients are unable to absorb vitamin D from the diet and thus are frequently found to be severely vitamin D deficient. We evaluated whether a commercial portable ultraviolet (UV) indoor tanning lamp that has a spectral output that mim...
