Re: OH MY !!!!!

In the end you get a situation like we have now with food in Europe, where the best quality food from small companies disappears from the market or can no longer be sold under the original name, and is replaced by junk food that is endorsed (and often heavily subsidized) by the government. Nick, Wh...

Re: Going Dutch — Managed-Competition Health Ins.in the Netherla

(old topic ...) warning: despite all the spin from burocrats and researchers involved in its development, the new Dutch Healthcare insurance system is a total failure. It does nothing to control costs, prevents the market from functioning and in fact insures surging cost for healthcare for many year...

Re: Jernigan's Nutraceuticals

one of the ingredients is used exclusively for de-worming horses I don't know which ingredient you are talking about, but I found that two herbals that can be used for 'deworming' are also said to work against other worm-like creatures like snakes, micro-filaria and spirochetes. This sounds unbelie...

Re: The Placebo Effect

Oregano is goood, it has antibacterial properties. You should ask double the amount to lymies and other bacteria battered persons :D yes, and just think about the possibilities of Japanese Knotweed (one of the three main herbs from the Buhner protocol, and probably used in some other herbal protoco...

Re: B. burgdorferi IN TICKS IN THE BASQUE COUNTRY

judging from what I heard from Spanish friends (some of them work in the medical field) Lyme is a rare disease in most parts of Spain. But if you are bitten by a tick, the docs tend to be cautious and send you to hospital at the slightest sign that something is wrong. This seems to be because in som...

Re: Drug-resistant infections---Riding piggyback

this subject (same story) was already mentioned here a week or two ago. obviously, we have to be extremely cautious with using antibiotics for Lyme patients in the Netherlands, otherwise our pig farmers don't have enough AB left to breed all those MRSA bugs that are stealthily conquering the world :...

Re: Bb and Antibiotic Resistance

These strains were all created in labs ... but I put all of the different antibiotics these Bb were found resistant against, and the list is pretty long. Is there no chance that these types of mutations could occur naturally? these strains were not 'created' in labs, they were selected from nature ...

Re: So, you trust the FDA?

Will the FDA give into the larger corporate interests and unfairly attack smaller companies? Or will it allow a ban on a natural sweetener and keep allowing artificial, unsafe sweeteners? Only time will tell. Yes and probably, that is just how these organisations work (in Europe as well). They are ...

Re: WHY IS CHRONIC LYME BORRELIOSIS CHRONIC?

We have to consider drug resistant variations as a possibility, as well. again, for several reasons (one of them being that Wormser says so :mrgreen: ), I think that is a theoretical possibility that is unlikely to be important in reality. There are FAR to many other, more likely, factors involved.

Re: The Placebo Effect

when I was in college (about 25 years ago) it was estimated that only about 20 conventional pharma products would pass a double blind test with flying colors; and most of those were synthetical products based on natural products that were know to man long before (like aspirin as the modern version o...
