Try ******* rectal suppositories instead of the EDTA IV chelation.
It's safer, cost much less, you can do it at home and the Glutathione helps avoiding the Hex-reactions.
If a natural antibiotic is needed, add ****** to ******. The synergy is great.
"Researching the truth. Nothing but the truth."
No, it was not a spam, what I shared on HealingWell.com under "I'm getting EDTA for Lyme treatment".
I posted it since I know Lyme patients who were greatly helped with ToxDetox. One of those persons is quite close to me.
If anybody does some serious research to find key target points to eliminate Lyme, both EDTA and glutathione would find their place quite high on a hypothetical list of 'important supplements/ingredients in Lyme disease.' A natural antibiotic, such as StemDetox is equally helpful, especially if taken together with ToxDetox (this is what we did with exiting results...)
Don't worry, I understand if you didn't do the type of research I did. I like ToxDetox since the synergy makes the two ingredients so much more effective. Let me know if you find anywhere a similar product (glutathione + EDTA). If you do, I would be eager to try it, test it, and if the superior effects are there, even promote it where it might help people who suffer.
Anyhow, I thought that the forum members are looking for new and better solutions. Maybe I was mistaken.
If you're a closed group, and you're not interested in new findings, I promise that I will stay away from your circle of friends and will not post anything else in the future.
Update on September 29, 2012
While I recognize by now that this site is not really welcoming health professionals (I couldn't find other doctors or health professionals commenting here - so this is my last post), and I should rather go back to those sites where we discuss difficult cases, I thought that the research minded members might appreciate some of the reasons why glutathione and EDTA (end enzymes), I think, will play an increasingly larger role in the management and treatment of Lyme disease.
Glutathione Articles - Lyme Disease
1) - Can Glutathione Help Lyme Disease Sufferers? Excerpt from: The Glutathione Report: Optimal Health with the Master Antioxidant. Issue 4, Volume 1, 2004 May.
..."At an informational forum on Lyme disease keynote speaker, Dr Richard Horowitz, who has worked on the study and treatment of Lyme disease at the Hudson Valley Healing Arts Center, mentioned that for the first time in 20 years, he had seen evidence of a possible treatment solution occurring right before his eyes, "in my office during the last 30 days." The treatment involved administration of glutathione by intravenous injection to remove heavy metals stored in the brain cells of a person who suffered from Lou Gehrig's disease. After being given the IV dose, the patient showed 90 percent improvement within tem minutes. His joint pain was gone and his cognitive symptoms improved markedly with results that were encouraging and consistent. "Neurotoxins produced by the Borrelia spirochete, or Lyme disease bacterium, also interact with heavy metals in our cells," Dr Horowitz explains. "All these chemicals in our bodies cause inflammation, and glutathione seems to act like a sponge that pulls them out."
(I would add that glutathione rectal suppositories have several advantages over the IV administration; the release of glutathione from the suppository is sustained over five to eight hours; the suppositories can be used at home, without the hassle of going to a clinic; the price is much less)
2) - Pancewicz, SA; Skrzydlewska E, et al, Role of reactive oxygen species (RPS) in patients with erythema migrans, and early manifestation of Lyme borreliosis. Med Sci Monit. 2001; 7(6): 1230-35.
(The administration of extra glutathione might influence the ethiology of erythema migrans by its benefitial effects over RPS.)
EDTA article - Lyme Disease
1) - Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2009 Mar 3;106(9):3449-54. Epub 2009 Feb 13.
A manganese transporter, BB0219 (BmtA), is required for virulence by the Lyme disease spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi.
Ouyang Z, He M, Oman T, Yang XF, Norgard MV.
Department of Microbiology, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX 75390, USA.
(This study was the first one to identify the requirement of metals for the establishment of infection by Borrelia burgdorferi. Since chelation with EDTA removes or at least lowers the available metals, the intensity of the infection might be influenced by this pathway (- and other known or not yet known pathways, influenced by EDTA.)
2) - Phillips Daniel – Cumultive effect of EDTA and proteolytic enzymes on the formation of Borrelia burgdorferi biofilm; ILAD Poster Presentation, 2012, Boston, University of New Haven
(This is one of the more interesting studies that try to explain the benefits of EDTA, with the addition of a proteolytic enzyme. It should partially explain our success with the addition of StemDetox since it has a very high level of proteolitic Serrapeptaze enzyme.)
It's gratifying to see the support of scientific studies that confirms our unique approach in the management/treatment of Lyme disease that was/is based on raised glutathione levels with the additional EDTA, and a concurrently administered proteolitic enzyme.
It seems that the "glutathione-EDTA-enzyme trio" is more effective and more beneficial than any antibiotics or other drugs or supplements. More studies are needed to confirm the superiority of our somewhat unusual approach.
