This is just a peace of his studies he found lyme in 7 out of 10 alzheimers patients brains. what does that mean to us. hmmmmmmmmmm This is about
why it is so hard to kill borrelia, because it is a biofilm.
Most of the antibiotics we have today in medicine are
140: derived from soil bacteria. People will go around the world and collect
141: samples of soil and they’ll grow the bugs, and they’ll look for new
142: antibiotics produced by those bugs, or actual chemical products that
143: interfere with the growth of other bacteria. So, antibiotics are
144: usually derived from bacteria designed to kill or suppress other
145: bacteria in their immediate environment. \\ \\So, it makes sense
146: that biofilms would produce substances that create a hostile
147: environment for other bugs in the general area where the biofilm is, so
148: that only the bacteria inside the biofilm are able to survive, and do
149: their biological functions. \\ \\They’ve shown that the resistance
150: inside the biofilm to antibiotics that might be coming in from the
151: outside is markedly increased, and bugs that would normally be killed
152: by one unit are not killed at all, and they might not be killed by a
153: thousand units as long as they stay inside the biofilm, which is like a
154: gelatinous wrapping around colonies of bugs which keep the antibiotics
155: from getting into the center to kill the bugs that are there. \\ \\Biofilm
156: looks like a film, and it has potential to protect the bugs inside the
157: film from outside hostile environments, including antibiotics." \\ \\*A new biology for Lyme disease* \\ \\"So,
158: all of this is very, very relevant to how we think about
159: biology’ for Lyme disease. If you boil down everything that I have
160: tried to do in my career, it comes down to making a case for a new
161: biology of this bacteria. A biology which includes various forms,
162: various groupings or biofilms, survival of these bugs inside the human
163: body, both inside cells and outside of cells, and the longterm
164: capability of these living organisms to create diseased conditions of
165: various types in the human body, just like syphilis did when it was a
166: major public health problem.
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about
Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards. Alice in wonderland.
