Greetings again from the sandy home of The Lyme Wars-- Olde Cape Cod.
As I said in the first episode, I will be primarily discussing "the Stephen Buhner Protocol" as presented in his "must read" book, "Healing Lyme: Natural Healing and Prevention of Lyme Borreliosis and It's Coinfections". If you have not already acquired this book, you may get a copy HERE.
FIRST off, let me give you a little more about the scope of the Lyme Wars, which I have decided to call "World War Lyme", or WWL for short.
Buhner, Pages 2 and 3:
"I began my examination of Lyme Disease (Ed: hearafter LD, for brevity's sake) without preconceptions, motivated by a desire (as I still am) to understand the organism, the disease it causes, and a wish to sensibly expand the scope of treatment options.
"Expand the scope of treatment options" he has indeed. And a VERY well-researched presentation is his book. He goes on to say :
"SIX POINTS stand out after a rather long and intense examination of the existing material:
- There is a lot of hysteria about Lyme Disease. Everybody is pretty scared, most are not really sure what to do, INCLUDING the physicians;
- There are a lot more sick people than the statistics indicate;
- Antibiotics are not NEARLY as effective as purported to be;
- Clear, concise, unemotional information is hard to obtain;
- Tests for Lyme Disease are not very reliable;
- Something very strange is going on in the field of Lyme disease and its treatment."
Ok, I could cite many many more commentaries on this UNDER-reporting of Lyme by the medical people (This is what Buhner means when he says- "Something very strange is going on in the field of Lyme disease and its treatment."), but why bother citing them?? You and I KNOW that this is one of the most under-reported diseases in the history of the world. So lets move on to what you REALLY want to know--
Thank you so much… from ALL of us.
Please write to me NOW (firstname.lastname@example.org) and SHARE what your MD has suggested for treatment options OTHER THAN another course of antibiotics. I will look at your letters and pass this information on to others who are trying to win WWL.
AND… as soon as I have gathered sufficient information, I WILL be writing to the Mainstream Media and asking them to convey this information to others who suffer.
STAY TUNED for the next episode of "The Lyme Wars" in which I will be sharing feedback, and beginning to tell you about the plants that may help you to "DEFEAT THE SPIROCHETE!".
As always- "Eat well. Be conscious. Recycle/reuse/rebuild. Help one another. Know who your plant friends are-- get to know them. Love health and one another"
