Henry wrote : Much has been made of the role of "persistors". However, since these have been found only in animal models of Lyme disease, there is no evidence that they are clinically relevant in human disease. Hmm! does this also mean that in reality all those sophisticated, expensive vaccines and...

Re: Blebbing of bacteria -Invisible Agents of Injury &Fatali

Thanks for posting Dr. MacDonald. I hope you do not mind my posting of a video which is not meant to promote Dual Dur or whatever. It quite clearly shows bleb shedding (at 5 min.) so I hope it fits in here.

Re: Dr Burrascano shared his treatment approach recently:

Thanks for posting this Phyfe. I don't think this method works for Lymepatients who're dealing with Lyme disease too long. But with regard to the 'plateau' thing (which I personally experienced) I think his theory makes sense and it might at least be worth trying. The problem is where to find a doc ...

Looking for hidden antibodies

Lymepatients seem to deal with biofilms, cysts, blebs, DNA transciption, quorum sensing, uncultivable bugs and persister cells. Do they also deal with hidden antibodies like R.A. sufferers might do? Or are (some of) these R.A. sufferers potential Lymepatients? This artical is originally written in d...

Re: Water and its memory; new diagnostic tool?

Hi Camp Other, The purpose of my post was not to promote or defend the reputation of any person in particular; it was the subject itself, the idea, i.e. water as a possible new diagnostic tool.

Re: Water and its memory; new diagnostic tool?

Fringe science covers everything from novel hypotheses that can be tested via scientific method to wild ad hoc theories and "New Age mumbo jumbo" with the dominance of the latter resulting in the tendency to dismiss all fringe science as the domain of pseudoscientists, hobbyists, or quacks.[9] Othe...
