Do you mean the Lyme-N? It's hard to find info in it. The holistic md that first diagnosed me (but I went with a LLMD afterwards) told me about it says it has been successful for over a dozen of her pts and even herself. I asked her for more information on it and she sent me a PDF about it. Apparently you can only get on the program with a doctor that is affiliated with it. I find it suspicious you can't find info on it and that you have to pay upfront for it. But, l found a blog where a woman was writing about her very positive experience and she said it is going through studies now, and again, you can only go through it with a doctor following your treatment. I am all for trying anything that can help. I like that it is delivered different and more effectively. Please let me know what you all think about this!!
Here is the information:
What is Lyme-N and who would use it?
Lyme-N is a product designed to kill spirochetal populations present in the body. It is designed for use by individuals who have Borreliosis (spirochetes) or related spirochetal infections such as those found in individuals who have Lyme Disease
What are the ingredients in Lyme-N?
Lyme-N is a proprietary combination of natural inorganic compounds and organic molecules that possess inherently antimicrobial properties. Lyme-N has natural bactericidal, mycobactericidal, and virucidal properties. The ingredients in Lyme-N are “Generally Recognized As Safe”, or GRAS (a term used by the FDA and EPA).
How does Lyme-N work?
Lyme-N penetrates microorganisms over a relatively short amount of time, disrupting protein and nucleic acid structures selectively in spirochetes. The action produces a lethal effect on all harmful bacterias such as spirochetes. Certain components of the composition possess bactericidal action and other components act to chaperone those active components safely and effectively into the body.
How is Lyme-N used?
Lyme-N is nebulized, meaning it is inhaled by the individual. The nebulization process is repeated daily for 60 days. The process normally takes an individual 5 to 25 minutes daily, which requires a small, inexpensive nebulizing unit, and can be done at home.
How does Lyme-N differ from antibiotics and other products?
Lyme-N is not an antibiotic. It does not have the structure of an antibiotic, nor is it an herbal product. Lyme-N is a solution made of naturally occurring inorganic minerals. The mean diameter of Lyme-N molecules is 260 picometers. Antibiotics typically have a mean diameter of 50 to 100 times that of Lyme-N, consequently Lyme-N is capable of far greater absorption, permeation and diffusion throughout the entire body. Antibiotics and certain other products and compositions are, fortunately, regulated. Those products frequently have serious short and long term and side-effects, some of which may be permanent.
How does the Lyme-N differ from antibiotics?
Current literature on antibiotic protocols indicates antibiotic treatment periods range from several weeks to several months. Long duration antibiotic treatments lasting a year or more have been reported in instances where chronic Lyme disease (Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome) has occurred. Most antibiotic treatments use oral dosing. Long duration treatments frequently employ IV (intravenous) PICC (peripherally inserted central catheter) line drips that are installed in the body to affect daily IV administration of antibiotics and/or related products. Treatment timespans for oral and IV antibiotic dosing can range from months to years. Types of other products used are diverse, ranging from vitamins and herbs to electric and other alternative therapies and treatment times may range from months to years or longer.
Does Lyme-N pose any long term or short term health risks?
No. Risk is viewed as a function of transient or continued negative side effects, irreversible negative changes, allergic reactions, or other undesirable effects from use. The assessment of risk is low with respect to Lyme-N use, based on evidence from successful use by hundreds of users spanning over a decade. Generally, the Lyme-N composition provides elements the body normally uses to defend against infection, elements that are in many instances deficient in supply in the typical individual’s diet, therefore the product provides benefit as opposed to risk.
Why is the Lyme-N solution nebulized?
Evidence from testing indicates that nebulization is the most effective pathway for moving Lyme-N into the body, more so than oral, dermal or other routes. Additionally, certain processes occur with nebulization which enable a complete absorption of Lyme-N and conversion of the product to a maximally efficacious form of gas.
What happens if I miss a nebulizing session?
Not adhering to your protocol may cause the process to fail, therefore we strongly urge that you stay on the protocol for 60 days. If you miss a nebulizing session it potentially will allow the spirochetes to reestablish themselves.
Lyme-N has a relatively short lived residence in the body of only 24 hours. Optimally, Lyme-N is presented to the body, one dose daily, which enables the volume to reach a saturation point. Subsequent to nebulization Lyme-N rapidly diffuses throughout the body and has a predictable absorption gradient through tissues. Lyme-N is excreted within 24 hours through normal fecal, urine, breathing and perspiration routes without residue, therefore a daily repetition is required for 2 months.
If the individual misses or skips days of nebulization, the microbial, spirochetal population has the opportunity to re-establish itself. Therefore skipping days of nebulization will render the process ineffective. A prolonged break in daily nebulization, intentionally or otherwise, will necessitate termination of the 60 day protocol and a review of the ability and timing of a re-initialization of the process.
What can I expect in terms of symptoms going away?
The alleviation of symptoms from spirochetal infection is often complex, as it is a function of the extent, intensity and duration of the infection as well as the age and status of the individual and the extent to which other infections (co-infections or otherwise) have been or are present. From experience to-date, individuals who have an acute Borrelia infection often respond differently than individuals that have a long-standing chronic infection. Some individuals experience the waning or disappearance of symptoms within weeks. Other individuals will see symptoms diminish more gradually over the 60 day period or for even months after the completion of nebulization.
Symptoms and recovery periods are even more complex and multi-dimensional when the individual has one or several co-infections or other complicating factors. Those with Lyme may have one or more co-infections including infections from Babesia, Bartonella, Mycoplasma, Anaplasma, RMSF (Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever), oral and systemic burdens from treponeme infections, T. Denticola, Fusobacterium nucleatum, commensal with Fuso, EBV, HHV6, Cocksackie virus, and so on. These co-infections will complicate symptomology, result in the individual exhibiting a complex of ailments, and make a differential diagnosis challenging.
Experience to-date with individuals who have nebulized frequently shows a discernable improvement in mental function often within the first few weeks. Improvements include a clearing of so-called “brain fog,” lower anxiety, improved ability to sleep, better memory retention, lessened anger, agitation, rage and depression. Recovery is very individualized. For some, symptoms tend to occur in cycles. Some, more so those with an acute infection, may experience increased fatigue during the first week or two of nebulization, but then a surge of energy in the weeks that follow. Others with long-standing Borrelia infections may observe a greater period of time before symptoms diminish.
Some symptoms will take longer to disappear depending on how long one has been sick. So-called “ghost-like” symptoms may come and go during the 60-day period, including aches or pains in joints or other locations. After 60 days when the treatment is finished, shorter ghost-like symptoms continue to briefly appear and then disappear. These symptoms will not be nearly as strong and should only last for a short while time. The time interval in between symptoms will become longer and longer, until the symptoms do not come back.
The healing period for an individual with long-standing chronic Borreliosis (Lyme) may require months, up to a year to fully heal. As plaque and biofilm diminishes during the treatment, an individual may experience an elevation in aches or pain. At this point it is believed that the transient elevation in aches or pain are the result of the plaque and biofilm loss, which may expose raw or previously damaged nerves. Evidence to-date shows that individuals who have only been infected for a short period of time will be cured faster.
Are essential oils similar to Lyme-N?
No. Essential oils commonly associated with the treatment of Lyme disease differ compositionally and in mode of action. While essential oils may have certain beneficial effects when used for other purposes, their use during or in conjunction with the use of Lyme-N is strongly discouraged. There is evidence that indicates that essential oils may interfere with the desired absorption of Lyme-N and render it less effective.
Why do I get some symptoms back, off and on, after completing the treatment?
The body requires months of complete healing after nebulizing. Recovery time depends on the extent of spirochetal damage and how long one has had Lyme, the presence of co-infections and their severity and the number of other medical conditions one has. The “relapsing cycle” may continue for a time; however, by eliminating the spirochetal population via nebulization, the cycle will be broken, enabling the body to recover. Post-nebulization ghost-symptoms and feelings of relapse will progressively diminish and eventually disappear. Removing the causative agent will eventually diminish the symptoms entirely.
Why do I still get fatigued sometimes?
During spirochetal die-off, the organisms throw off certain toxins, the immune system is burdened and recovering and the lymphatic system must work to eliminate the die-off for a period of time.
Why does my throat feel sore sometimes when I start nebulizing?
Lyme-N contains a natural salt that protects your lungs and is needed to maintain a proper electrolytic balance. The raspy or slightly sore throat feeling some people get for a short period of time can be mitigated by simply using a throat lozenge or cough drop. The sore throat sensation is brief and typically goes away quickly. Most individuals do not experience any throat discomfort during nebulization.
Is there a better time of the day to nebulize?
Not necessarily. It is suggested that an individual select a time of day when the nebulization can be comfortably and consistently done and so that nebulization activities are 24 hours apart.
There is some evidence that Lyme-N nebulization may affect some individuals’ sleep patterns. If an individual finds that nebulizing in the evening tends to keep them up at night, they should shift and nebulize earlier in the day. Conversely, if an individual nebulizes in the morning but feels tired long before the day ends, they should shift and nebulize later in the day.
May I exercise and work out during the nebulization period?
Yes, but not excessively.
Is it helpful to periodically nebulize after the initial 60 day treatment?
No. Continuing nebulization beyond 60 days is not necessary, with few exceptions. If you are bitten again by a spirochete-carrying tick, or if you acquire a new spirochetal infection via other transmission paths (certain blood or fluid exchanges) you can be re-infected.
Is it possible to have an allergic reaction to Lyme-N?
No. The inorganic minerals that are present in Lyme-N have never been known to case any allergic reaction.
What is the recommended standard dosage of Lyme-N?
A standard adult dose of Lyme-N is 20 drops per day, repeated daily for 60 consecutive days.
A standard dose for a child is 10 drops per day, repeated daily for 60 consecutive days.
More specifically, dosing is a function of body mass (weight). Individuals weighing over 100 pounds use 20 drops daily. Individuals under 100 pounds use 10 drops daily.
Is there an upper age limit or lower age limit for individuals who want to use Lyme-N?
Generally, individuals in the 5 to 85 year old age range are considered the child / adult range. An individual’s condition and health status factors in to a determination of suitability of use.
Can I use Lyme-N if I am pregnant or plan to become pregnant soon?
No. Use of Lyme-N is not recommended. There is no evidence that Lyme-N has any effect upon a pregnant women or unborn children; however, the recommendation remains that Lyme-N use should be put off in instances of pregnancy, or within one week of planned pregnancy. If you have Lyme, please do not get pregnant.
Can I take antibiotics, prescription drugs, or herbal supplements while nebulizing?
During the Lyme-N 60 day protocol, we strongly caution against taking antibiotics or natural remedies for Lyme treatment. Doing so will prevent Lyme-N from being absorbed into the body. However, it is permissible to take pharmaceutical prescriptions for other ailments and Lyme symptoms.
We suggest that you also avoid all supplements during the 60 day treatment period. It is best for the body to process the nebulized solution at its fullest strength, without competing with other substances in the body. It is also not possible to test all supplements for compatibility with Lyme-N. You can resume taking supplements when the Lyme-N treatment cycle is complete.
Can I take CoQ-10 and Fish Oil when nebulizing?
No. Evidence at this point suggests that these won’t necessarily halt Lyme-N activity, but they may impede Lyme-N activity, as Lyme-N is a gas.
What actions are recommended for oral care while nebulizing?
Individuals are asked to brush their teeth regularly using standard grocery store baking soda during nebulizing and for one month thereafter. Regular baking soda is preferred over toothpastes that contain baking soda in some fractional amount. Periodic gargling, one to two times per week, with standard over the counter 3% hydrogen peroxide is also requested.
If I accidently spill Lyme-N on clothes or furniture or a carpet how can I remove it?
Clothes, furniture,carpets, and hard surfacesOxyclean Foam
On skin and eyes Flush with water On teeth Hydrogen peroxide gargle/rinse
Do I need to Detox while nebulizing?
No, Lyme-N is composed of inorganic minerals. These minerals are known to take toxins with them when the leave the body. Lyme-N is a gradual kill off and the spirochetes are small enough that the toxins are removed in a daily basis.
