Since there's been a lot of discussion around the Hansa centre and Dr Jernigan's protocol I'm wondering if anyone has done a review or analysis of the various herbs in the protocol.

I'm slowly working my way looking through the list and I'm just wondering if this is already out there somewhere.

Thanks goshawk.

FWIW I found an initial review of the list of herbs to be a fun exercise - it's interesting to see where the overlap is between the various herbal protocols and the different areas they focus on outside of that core.

Many of the herbs in Jernigan's protocols are traditional Chinese herbs although some are less common ones and I had some difficulty finding information on them.

There are a few herbs that are familiar for Buhner followers
- Cat's Claw,
- Glycerrhiza,
- Scuttelaria (not clear which one is used though which is important as they have different effects),
- Isatis
- some medicinal mushrooms (although different varieties).

There are some herbs which I would want to read more about as there are cautions
- the berberines (phellodendron, Coptis chinensis),
- Fructus Bruceae - Ya Dan Zi
- Baptisia (australis and bractiata)
- Prunum armeniaca kernel - apricot kernel
- Chrysanthemum moratorium flower (risk of increased skin sensitivity to sunlight)

I'm interested to do some more reading about some of the others although I don't know if I'd consider adding them specifically it's nice to know more about possible options, including
- Oldenlandia - immune modulation, potential anti-cancer
- Scrophularia root - a blood cleansing tonic believed to stimulate the lymph
- Chinese Yam - (Dioscoria opposite rhizome)
- Lycium chinense root bark - this is goji or wolf berry - lots of immunomodulating benefits, hypoglycaemic, anti-microbial - I've read about this one a number of times
- Mints - anti-inflammatory and antibacterial

Hi Sandyfeet,

I followed Dr. Jernigan's protocol over 12 years ago and one of the main reasons I picked his protocol was because Dr. Jernigan tests all of his remedies (plants, etc.) using BioResonance Scanning (BRS).

If you want to learn more about BRS below is a video explaining it:

Also, one of his remedies called Borrelogen was tested at IgeneX and I believe at another lab and the results were as follows:

I presented research on Borrelogen in 1999 at the International Tick-borne Diseases Conference in New York City, where 500 of the top infectious disease researchers and doctors met to present and discuss research on LD. As far as I know, the research I did of my formulation called Borrelogen is still the only real laboratory verified research out there that documents via blood tests that a natural remedy even works. Remember though, Borrelogen is not treating any disease or bacteria…it is supporting the little-known bioenergetic immune system. That research can be read in my book, Beating Lyme Disease, 2nd edition.

* In that research we used a LUAT test, that essentially is a urine test where the lab counts how many pieces of dead Lyme spirochete bacteria were found in the patient’s urine, usually after a week of taking antibiotics. A positive LUAT was where the lab found 32 pieces of dead Lyme bacteria in your first morning urine. A highly positive test was if the lab found 45 pieces of dead Lyme bacteria. After our patients took 1 dropper TID of Borrelogen for a week almost all of the LUAT tests were between 100 to greater than 400 which is where the lab quits counting! The bioenergetic immune system of the body was able to kill off massive amounts of the bacteria. (Due to the frequencies produced by the body as a result of the installation of the new “software” from the remedy.)

The interview is not available on Lyme Light Radio but it is available somewhere else (I don't have the time to find the link) but below has interesting points:

Edit: The interview below works:


Hope this helps,
12 years well ~ used Dr. Jernigan's protocol from his book about Biological Medicine (used Borrelogen, Microbojen and Neuro-Antitox).

I still detox even though healed and drink Green Vibrance. I come back to help others for others helped me when I was sick. Pay it forward! smile

Thanks Deejavu! Your blog and posts here are part of what inspired me to look into this further. Your story is very inspiring. smile

I took my daughter to the Hansa Center 8 years ago, and she is absolutely well today. Dr. Jernigan used many of the herbs in his "protocol" as well as some other herbs and treatments to facilitate healing. I am making my comments from personal experience as well from my understanding of Dr. Jernigan's published literature.

The forum is fortunate to have Deejavu as an active member that posts a lot of informative material. I was reading through a related thread in this forum and I found something that may be helpful in answering your question. Thank you Deejavu! Here is a quote from Dr. Jernigan:

"Most of the plants I use in my various formulas confound “Classical Herbologists” because they read the old literature from ancient research and find that none of the herbs are known to “kill” bacteria or “boost the immune system” or even fall into a treatment category for the uses for which I have made them. This is because when I formulate them I am not striving to determine the “ultimate antibiotic” that will “kill” the bacteria. I am testing for what combination of various plant extracts will provide the very specific frequencies that will enable the body to rapidly eliminate the dis-ease process."

When we consider Dr. Jernigan's statement in light of your desire for "review or analysis", a major problem presents itself. What shall we use as a standard to assess Dr. Jernigan's herbal selection? Such a standard does not exist in the extant herbal literature. Of course, sometimes, he may chiefly select an herb(s) based on intrinsic and conventionally recognized qualities other than "frequency", but he often doesn't. This presents a real obstacle to your investigation because there is a lack of published literature from which to make such a review or analysis. In many cases, your confidence in Dr. Jernigan's herbal selection will not be bolstered by consulting the published herbal literature. Those resources do not publish herbal frequencies and the impact that those frequencies might make upon sub-optimal frequencies in the human body.

Do you see the problem here? I don't want to discourage you at all, but I would not want you to spend a lot of time looking for something that's not available. You may read about some facts concerning the herbs, but you will not read about the way that he uses them in many cases.

Dr. Jernigan views the human body as an energetic being as well as the other conventionally recognized aspects of the human being. Thus a large part of his treatment paradigm involves "frequencies".
