Not feeling well today - caught kids cold. It's Klinghardt from Chronic Lyme Disease Summit 2. The point he was making is there are things we do to destroy the biofilm to get to the disease, but that's bad because there are good things in the biofilm. So we want to get to them without destroying the good.
"And so, unfortunately, all those healthy bugs that we need live also in biofilm and most of the biofilm attempts that are in the Lyme field are very, very wrong intended. We want to keep the healthy biofilm, the healthy microbes. And when you do high-dose enzyme therapy or other things, N-acetyl cysteine, things that destroy biofilm, certain herbs that destroy biofilm, it destroys the undifferentiated, the healthy biofilm and the biofilm that harbors microbes."
He goes onto talk about MIC (microbial inhibition concentration) value, and it gets a little technical for me.
He also says "I personally hold the idea that going through a Herxheimer reaction is an indication that you're doing the wrong thing."
"So we use a special proprietary process of preparing herbs that have known antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral effects. And we prepare them liposomally and we infuse them with different RIFE frequencies and created a cocktail. It's called the CockTail. BioPure is marketing that. It's called the Lyme CockTail.
But that's not the important thing. The important thing is that liposomal herbs have been shown to easily penetrate biofilm and eradicate microbes inside biofilm. that's number one. Secondly, many of the liposomal herbs that we're using have been shown to also get taken up into the intracellular environment. And, of course, in persistent Lyme and coinfections, the bugs live in the intracellular compartment."
It was a long transcript, but I think that's the interesting part about the biofilm.
Okay - I see what you (he) means...lol....I had a lyme brain moment I think.
