Glad to see that people are watching Dr. Rau and learning about Dr. Jernigan. I'm not 100% sure if Dr. J. studied with Dr. Rau himself but I do know that Dr. J. did study at the Paracelsus Clinic in Switzerland as well as other places. Dr. J. had chronic lyme himself and thought he was going to die from it.. So he gets it.
Personally, I don't believe antibiotics are the answer to chronic lyme, yes, they are good if this disease is diagnosed right after a person gets infected, but for chronic lyme? I don't know.. I know I got better (I have been symptom-free for over 5 years now) from following Dr. Jernigan's "Healing at Home" protocol. I still continue to detox daily, watch what I eat, keep my stress levels as low as possible, exercise (lately it's shoveling snow!), using my portable infrared sauna, foot baths, taking supplements (Green Vibrance, Cal/Mag, Vit. C, etc.).
When I followed his protocol it consisted of taking Borrelogen and a botanical which is now called CNS/PNS Neuro-Antitox (back then it was Pale Spike and Silphitrin), then I added Microbojen later on. Those was the only 3 botanicals I took.. Plus lots of detoxing and dry skin brushing as well as the foot baths...
I see that Dr. J. has this protocol called the Perfect 7 which seems very pricy to me.. I had bought an enema bag and yes, I still continue to do coffee enema's but only after I am cleaned out.. Sounds gross but very healthy..
My view is in order to get better, one needs to not only address the bugs, but the toxins, one's emotional state, stress, etc. The big picture.. Yes, I had an co-infection but I didn't give that any attention as I was building up my immune system and by doing that my body was able to kill off any bugs no matter what strain..
Don't know if this helps anyone but I sure hope it does.. I really feel for anyone who is suffering from this disease.. I was sick for 10 years (5 years I went undiagnosed) and I will never forget what it felt like... I had my days where I wanted to end it all and I will never ever forget that..
Hang in there everyone, you can get better!
It's all about the Immune System mixed with Daily Detoxing and a dose of Positive Thinking!
