This video is a piece of the interview made to Dr. Armin Schwarzbach international Director of Ilads, and the head of Infectolab laboratories. Dr Schwarzbach treats Lyme Disease by determining the pathogen in the lab. first, and then doing an integrative protocol. In this video Dr ARMIN SCHWARZBACH explains why Lyme Disease is misdiagnosed and how to fix this. The interview was made at the Physician’s Round Table in Tampa, made by Sue Vogan. Dr Schwarzbach also offers a unique perspective stating that 90% of his Lyme patients have infection with the bacteria Chlamydia. In a personal note we want to thank Dr. Schwarzbach and all the people in Europe who are dedicated to bring awareness about the importance of properly diagnosing and treating Lyme Disease. Here is the video:

This video is a piece from the interview made to Dr William Lee Cowden, M.D., Director President of the Academy CIM. Dr Cowden is very recognized in the medical community for his effort of treating the patients with all the possible tools and as a whole even including emotional causes; he has made the integrative medicine to be valued and respected as the best approach to the patient. We had the honor of interviewing him and knowing him as a human being very humble and giving. Please note that this information is not a medical recommendation to be followed, you always have to seek medical advise from your Doctor.

This short video is a piece of the exclusive interview with Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker, Medical Director of Center for research in Biotoxin Associated Illnesses. Dr. Shoemaker bases his diagnostics and treatments on lab results that can show if the symptoms are caused by toxins – mold- and other-.In this video Dr Shoemaker explains what tests to do to find if your place has mold that could cause illness. Please note this is not medical advice, only videos for information and help.
This is a piece of a longer interview made to Doctor Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D., P.H.D. in 2012 in the lobby of the Hotel in Tampa, during the Physician’s Round table. For this video we made a longer introduction to explain why parasitic treatments are a MUST in treating lyme disease and chronic infections. Hope this brings tons of information and help!
infection makes the most amount of sense, especially after rounds of Albendazole etc. have made me feel symptom free at certain stages of the
illness. Love your work, T.
do, and the more logic to use, is that Lyme is a multiinfection bacterial
yes, but for sure parasitic if not by name by action of the bugs. Borrelia goes inside the cells, Mycoplasma
too, and all the coinfections like Bartonella and Erlichia too? Obviously Babesia is a parasite inside the
blood so it has to be added to the pot of Lyme, and then the studies of Dr Sapi in the UNH, the Boronson’s in Norway and Dr
Fry in Texas, all talking about
protozoans and parasites cannot be ignored as if it not happening? .. its even
funny to hear it is a bacterial infection when it really is the least bacterial
..? I think if this concept is changed treatment could be more accurate… Why? just because you
don’t kill parasites with antibiotics, as you don’t kill snakes with flea
Ivermectin that my Colombian Dr told me is one drop per one kilogram of weight,
in the human drops that come at 0.6% concentration, given once a week. This means the medicine is not administered
daily, as US Drs do with the Stromectol, because the Ivermectin and the
veterinary IVOMEC (1%) stay in the body 4 to 5 days until totally eliminated. I wonder why the Stromectol is given every
day? Second it means a dose given
according to the person, not a formula for everybody. In my “calculations” I get around 3
to max 12 mgs of medicine a week, while here the dose is 12 mgs three times a
day every day? … its so high it doesn’t makes sense to me…
higher doses but in a short period of time, let’s say two weeks max 4
weeks. While a chronic long term
multiinfected patient should receive low doses for long time to clean the
infection and tons of detoxing!
“Azoles” are the proper medicines for parasites in our case more than
antimalarics due to these last ones work by immune suppression and we don’t
need that…:) The Albenda is the
“oldest” one and stronger. It
kills malaria too, but in long term treatment it can affect the Central Nervous
system. Studies in children found they
were having similar symptoms as Parkinson’s such as involuntary movements, etc,
so it looks like Albenda is not for Lymies in the long run, maybe just for a
short two weeks support. The feared
Flagyl – Metronidazole- is the always good old treatment but here in the US Drs
give 2 grs a day or IV even stronger, it can blow the liver and the heart… my
Dr told me to not use more than 750 mgs a day!!! See? Dosing!
the Tinidazole, in the US known as Tindamax or “Tini” how we call it,
is the youngest of the family, and it has been studied lately thank God by or
dear Dr. Eva Sapi, who found protozoan component in Lyme Disease, and she found
Tini does more than Doxy in the Lyme treatment and if you decide to use the
Doxy better accompany it with Tini to get better results; this because Doxy
alone as per CDC recommendations would only push the bacteria to go cystic
faster and people get sicker faster too! In my personal case Tindamax was not a
medicine that I felt helped me as I can swear over flagyl and Ivermectin… I
thought it was too mild and blah.. maybe for all the Lymies who have not had
any kind of anthelmintics – antiparasitics- this could save their lives?
Because tindamax and these types of medicines kill the bacteria and also
ruptures the cysts! (I attached some links of interesting articles written by
Dr Sapi and Dr J about Tindamax, below).
with parasites, some types of bacteria and even some fungal infections? And
because it has helped me so much!!! There is so much to it and US Drs don’t
even want to try it??? I swear over the
bible I have no commercial interest in this medicine and I talk about it
because it helps me and has helped so many I found on my path, so I share the
info so each one decide if to take it or not.
I wish I could educate Drs and researchers about it. I have given samples for free to patients,
Drs and researchers and the results are amazing… I hope it is included in most
with me and saying you “love my work”, I only share what I have
learned hoping it helps others, and I’m thankful with God for giving me this
question. I cannot tell anyone how to
dose because I am not a Dr, so you made the right question indeed!
of the studies of Dr Sapi about the use
of the blog of Dr J in his blog LYMEMD, his amazing findings about Tindamax and his input
about Dr Sapi’s studies: “I cannot
cover the whole Sapi study. The most exciting finding is that Tindamax
(Tinidazole) – our premier Cyst-buster, is the most effective drug overall.
This “cyst-buster” kills 90% of cysts and spirochetes: by far the
best drug. We don’t know it’s effect on L-forms, but we can guess. Tindamax
probably works by an intracellular mechanism. If this is true it should be
equally effective against L-forms. It gets even better. Tindamax is the only drug which does a great job on
biofilm colonies as well! (not to be discussed now). More on biofilms later.
Tindamax passes the blood brain barrier and penetrates well into most tissues.
It has been effective in my patients with neurocognitive deficits –
neuroborreliosis.” The complete blog is here: http://lymemd.blogspot.com/2011/07/everything-you-thought-you-knew-about.html
Some were wondering if I got cured from Lyme Disease, or if I was sicker, because I was not posting anything here. I can say I stopped writing this blog because I dedicated to my group called Florida Lyme League and was bringing all the research to them and to my wall in Facebook, so now I’m back and with God’s help I’m starting this new blog with videos that I think are going to be very teaching helpful for all.
I have learned a lot about Lyme and Chronic diseases but I guess I have learned much more about human nature and also about my body and about what to do when I’m not feeling well.So I’m not writing this blog today about Lyme or the human nature but about what to do when you feel this sick and are so desperate and cannot find answers in the Doctors or the internet nor your closer people can help you? I say pray with what ever words you have and what ever faith you have, and ask for personal knowledge and then, with no doubt FOLLOW YOUR GUT! It doesn’t fail! I’ll give you some examples.
My friend was told to drink a lot of water, to detox, so she calls me and tells me that every time she drank a lot of water she got swollen and got terrible pains all over, I just asked her, so what do you think you should do? She said I cannot have all that water, it is not helping me… see? She had the answer to her problem. Then the point was to find the cause why she is retaining liquids and getting swollen? Maybe the gallbladder is blocked and the Lymphatic system is not running properly? Maybe the kidney is producing more water or not processing it properly? Maybe your adrenals are in fear mode, and they’re telling the kidney to fill everything with water to “clean the mess”? Maybe it is a allergy with mold and the body is trying to wash it out..? I can go long with this reasoning and probably I still be missing the cause – which of course in a person with Lyme the base cause is probably a pathogenic – a “bugs cause”; but what I try to say here is that if we follow our guts we might know, first hand, what to do and then we can try to find the cause to fix the problem from the base.
More over, we could stop our selves from more symptoms for example, headaches. I start looking when I got them and then trying to find why? so I noticed that every time I eat dessert I got a terrible headache and worse I got so moody and I could even become very angry… so, no need to get a lab test to tell me I am having sugar problems, Nor i needed a Doctor to tell me I needed to make an effort and stop it from my diet. Same thing with the gluten. I don’t have a Dr telling me I have to be in a “gluten free diet”, I found it by stopping all gluten for two weeks and seeing that my body swelling started to come down… while my friends who have a Dr telling them to do the restriction they have gluten “every now and then” thinking the Dr won’t notice it.. 🙂 Same with sugars and even alcohol… My friend from the Group has chocolates and peanut butter almost every day regardless of her Doctor’s recommendations. One day she showed me her back full of blisters filled of infection, I asked her if this could be her liver or a result of eating fats or chocolates? And she immediately responded very defensive that she was never going to quit the chocolate “because it is the only thing I have left”… I wonder if life and health is not the ultimate “thing” we should keep?
So this means that if you follow your gut and you really want to recover you are going to have to do changes with a strong personal will over what ever anyone tells you to do or not. It is like quitting a vice “cold turkey”. It is a personal way and there is no other way to do it!
When following my gut I found my swelling comes from bacteria/parasitic infection, that clogged my blood, my gut, my gallbladder and liver and the glands of my body. With this I have to see what to do to help the body to recover. Diet is one, exercise could be other option but my body seems to not be able to take it yet, so I started with something “easier” like trying to be able to sweat! I had the neurological Lyme that affected the part of the brain that won’t let me sweat nor recover the heat – sympathetic / parasympathetic functions were diminished – but after treatments with some oral antibiotics and Ivermectin – antiparasitics- and the very blessed “Double helix water” I found I started to sweat, a little – so I searched for a infrared sauna until found one suited to my small pocket and I think I have now recovered my ability to sweat and with this I started to detox and liberate my body from swelling and toxins.
See? little remedies and small changes can make a huge impact in our health. But our body will always tell if the medicine, the treatment, the remedy or the change is good or not, and even before having any treatment our gut is telling us what is needed to help our selves.
With this I would like to make a side note about what we call “HERXING“. We have learned that when we treat for Lyme Disease the body reaction is so strong we feel much sicker, sounds to be obvious after having so much infection spread all over; but I have learned some Lymies and even Doctors only guide their treatment to when they feel the sicker thinking they are having a huge herx, meaning a great response of their bodies., but I confess I’ve done quite the opposite… I learned from the Dr writer of the blog LYMEMD, from my Colombian Doctor and from Integrative Doctors such as Dr Lee Cowden, that suffering doesn’t mean we are healing, it could be a misconception and guide us in a wrong way. Dr J states that if you don’t start to feel any better after two weeks of treatment you better start thinking what to do next. Dr Cowden has a protocol, herbal, that includes Burbur and other medicines that will help to deal with the strongest herxings, without this being a cover up of what is going on with the disease. My Col Dr used the “old logic”: if it doesn’t help you feel better what for you treat”? and he taught me to always keep checking the reactions of my body, after every med taken, after every food, and every remedy. I found that when I took my once a week dose of Ivermectin, the antiparasitic so feared int he US but so used in South America and Africa, not only I had a mild herx the first two days but then I start having a couple of hours a day feeling a bit better. Some without Lyme won’t understand what is to have a “couple of good hours” but for us who suffer this disease we know this is priceless. So after this I decided I will look more for “good herxing” than feeling sicker. I can take an antibiotic and can tell exactly when it is kicking in, what is it doing and after a couple of days I can tell if it is working to my recovery or not. Doesn’t mean I change treatments every day, by the contrary, I stick with the ones that have really helped me and this has been what has kept me alive and living a decent life during all these years of nightmare.
Follow your gut is believing that your body is telling you what is the problem and what it needs. Help your self studying, reading, watching videos and doing all it takes to find answers and responses to your needs. Do not stay with thinking you are sick and one week of antibiotics is all you can have, it is a lie orchestrated to save money of the insurances that don’t want to pay for longer treatment. Do not stay still without looking for other treatments out of the box, like a simple adding bicarbonate to your water or taking castor oil to detox your colon – or a colonic or a coffee enema -. You have the strength to recover, count on it!

So in my case living in Florida, after many Doctors and tons of not knowing what was wrong with me and after lots of suffering and finally treating with antibiotics for long time and not recovering I called my former family physician in Colombia and he remembered me and helped me by phone and all I am going to tell you and what I write in my blog is based on his teaching and my researching meaning, I am not an expert, nor the wise one here, just a friend willing to share and help if I can; at least I try.
Denying the parasitic infection that comes from a vector borne infection is the most cruel ignorance of the medical field in the US.
May God guide me to say and do what is correct every day amen. May God guide you to do what you need to do to recover and heal. I pray for your recovery and hope to share this light with love and happiness, wooo hooo, to recovery we go!
Would like to add a link to a great information my friend CH just sent me, it is a study made in Japan that shows that patients who received this medicine taken from the green tea “significantly (P<0.05) inhibited the growth of B. microti at doses of 5 and 10 mg/kg body weight, and the parasites completely cleared on day 14 and 16 post-inoculation in the 5 and 10 mg/kg treated groups, respectively. These findings highlight the potentiality of (-)-Epigallocatechin-3-gallate as a chemotherapeutic drug for the treatment of babesiosis.
Mi caso es severo como el de muchos aqui y este pais lo niega pues no quieren que se sepa que tienen una enfermedad tipo malaria – peor; si compararamos el parasito de la malaria se mete entre el globulo rojo para vivir alli, luego va al higado y luego al cerebro y termina matando a su huesped. En la enfermedad gringa la picadura es de un garrapatica muy pequeña que no solo transmite una bacteria sino varios tipos de bichos entre bacterias y parasitos y aun no se sabe cuales son todos, solo se le ha dado nombre a algunos y curiosamente no matan al huesped sino solo luego de muchos años largos de sufrimiento… – hay quienes dicen que la garrapatita fue creada como parte de la guerra biologica y se les escapo de su centro de investigaciones de Plum Island? En todo caso por comparar solo uno de ellos, la Babesia es una infeccion donde son tres parasitos los que al mismo tiempo se meten entre el globulo rojo a comer y vivir!! Osea es una triple malaria!!!! Y por su parte la bacteria Borrelia, la base conocida de la infeccion, salta a los globulos blancos, daña el sistema immunologico y viaja entre los globulos blancos por todo el cuerpo para vivir a sus anchas…
Mas me hubiera valido “coger” una malaria cuando me fui a vivir a la selva de Bahia Solano que esta infeccion gringa…
No tenia dinero para regresar a Maryland y el Dr no me iba a tratar por telefono; las inyecciones de penicilina me costaron $1,200 dls, cada 20 pastillas me valian $300 y era una lista interminable de gastos, sin decirles que los medicos especializados cobran $875 por la consulta y si es alguna preguntita telefonica cobran $10 por minuto? .. gracias a Dios mi familia me mando medicinas y aun cada vez que alguien viaja me traen medicinas y con eso me salvaron la vida – Dios les pague! … pero que conste que no me estoy quejando ni mas faltaba, solo era para que vieran como es la atencion medica en USA; antes a mi me ha ido super bien porque las personas que conozco con LD se gastan entre 40 y 60 mil dolares en su tratamiento anual y aun siguen muy enfermos o recaen constantemente.. yo no me quejo, por el contrario mi familia me ha enviado tantas medicinas de Colombia que tengo un arsenal repleto; pero la gran diferencia ha sido ese medico Caleño quien me dio Ivermectina… siii, la medicina que empezo como Ivomec para purgar el ganado? muuu, me salvo la vida!!!! No, no es un comercial!!! Si no hay tratamiento antiparasitario no hay recuperacion en el Lyme Disease, digo yo!
Hasta hoy en medio de todo, he aprendido mucho y Soy feliz!!!
Abrazos… no me imagine contar mi historia pero quiza le sirva a alguien… ojala!
