Hi all,

I was inspired by this treatment option where people heat up their body's temperature high enough to kill the spirochetes (I believe it was in Germany).

That got me thinking if spirochetes die at cold temperatures too. Unfortunately that didn't yield any luck because the monsters survive very cold temperatures, but I did find this really interesting article:

docdro.id/s9Yfyl6 (scroll down a bit).

What this document is saying is that spirochetes change its major surface proteins (!!!) in response to temperature.

This reminded me of Contrast Hydrotherapy, although not mentioned in the article.

This is is literally going from hot water to cold water or vice versa, several times.

I think it would be worth for some of us to do some experiments with this.

For example, taking a very hot shower, then a very cold one, and back and forth a certain amount of times.

If my theory is true, we might be able to find a way to get the spirochetes to change shape (read: come out of its biofilm/cysts whatever you want to call it), so our body can fight the dormant ones.

Just brainstorming. But I think I'm going to give it a try.

Intersting hypothesis! I have seen people swear by going straight from hot springs and jumping into cold water. I think it was a big thing in Australia. I think they realized health benefits and gains, but didn't understand the mechanism. Perhaps it is killing off or inactivating pathogens...

Thank you Missouri! I really appreciate your comment. I really think that if we can get these spirochetes to start moving and shapeshifting we can target them better.

If anyone even has the slightest thoughts about this please feel free to post, I'd love to get a conversation going about this idea.

That is very interesting. I read somewhere that that is what Native Americans did when they were sick. They would sit it a really hot sweat lodge for a while and then jump into a cold river or lake. I think maybe they would do it more than once.

It seems to me that this type of treatment might be very hard on your heart, if you have heart problems. I'm not sure about that though.

I was told by my naturopath to take a hot shower for 30 seconds, then a cold shower for 30 seconds three times. I'm not sure if this would have the same effect. The problem is, I can never seem to get really hot water in the shower and I don't like to waste more water, so I end up just finishing my shower with cold water.

This has been around a few years, but not everyone may have seen it.

Personally, I'm not getting anywhere NEAR cold water! shakehead
