Good overview of Dr Horowitz’ mode of work

This is from the InterWebs … apparently an RN heard a talk by Dr Horowitz and makes a very helpful overview of his way of working which rings true from our two years’ personal experience with him.

Hi Everyone,

I was fortunate to be able to listen to a web-nar last night with Dr. R.H. from New York. Don’t know if you all know him but he is an expert and pioneer in treating lyme and is brilliant. Sorry this is long. and please forgive spelling errors and typos.

He talked really fast and it was very scientific because it was a web seminar with health professionals but I was able to get a few notes down for everyone. By the way, he has written a new book called “Why Can’t I get Better, Solving the Mystery of Lyme & Chronic Disease. It is due out this September.

He said that there are at least 100 strains of BB in the U.S. and important to have lyme testing at IgeneX because Lab Corp and others don’t test for all of the strains. Also the new culture at Advanced Laboratories. The culture has a 94% sensitivity for BB.

The following bands indicate exposure to Lyme disease but not necessarily active disease. 23, 31, 34, 39, 83-93.

Antibiotics alone do not completely eradicate Lyme, can get better but almost always relapses. Need integrative therapy.

Glutathione is crucial and also DIM and Magnesium – all help with DETOX issues.

Grapefruit Seed Extract is good alternative for cystic forms.

NEEM is a natural germ fighter. Olive Leaf Extract. Colostrum has Transfer Factors.

(Janis) Also the company Researched Nutritionals has Transfer Factors specific for lyme and other TF’s for the other infections like CMV, Herpes, etc. Only sold through licensed health care practitioners, can buy on-line through various sites. here is my option:

Oregano Oil and Pau D’ARCO.

OptiCleanse from Xymogen for Leaky Gut and Food Allergies.

EFT and Meditation for Psychological issues.

High protein diet with a lot of cruciferous vegetables. Avoid diary, wheat, sugar for most people.

Paleo Diet for sugar & gluten sensitivity.

Crucial to get inflammation down. Curcurmin (Tumeric) helps. I personally use the Organic India Tumeric capsules and my CRP is normal for the first time ever. it needs to be at least 95% curcurmoids (sp)

(Dr. Horowitz)Far Infrared, colon cleanses are imperative for detoxification. (Janis)The sit in type saunas only penetrate 1-2 inches into the body plus they are emitting harmful EMF’s, the biomat penetrates 6-9 inches into the body and has a chip to block the EMF’s. Remember not to buy through e-bay, amazon, etc. as they are selling on there illegally which could cause the customer warranty or other issues. PM me if you want to know more about the biomat. I am healing myself with only natural methods. The body can heal itself given the proper tools.

Any young man with low testosterone – always think lyme disease.

For Sleep issues – need a sleep study. 5HTP, Valerian Root, GABA-L-theanine, Relax Max from Xymogen can help. Relax Max with Inistisol can also help with OCD and bipolar.

Key issues to address is inflammation, food allergies and sleep in order to get well.

He refers to chronic illness as MSIDS – Multiple Systemic Infectious Disease Syndrome. Lyme MSIDS and non-Lyme MSIDS. This syndrome really affects our hormones.

He identities these factors in MSIDS

1. Infections – Bacterial – Lyme, Ehrilichiosis, Bartonella, Mycoplasma, Chlamydia, Q-Fever, Tick Paralysis, RMS F, Typhus, Tularemia.
Viral – EBV, HHV-6, CMV, West Nile, Heartland v Powassan, encephalitis, & other viral encephalopathies. Candia & other fungi.
2. Parasites – Babesiosis & other piroplasms, filariasis, amebasis, giardiasis
3. Immune Dysfunction – ANA+, Rheumatoid Factor+, increased HLA DR-4
4. Inflammation – Increased IL-1, IL-6, TNFx equals “Sickness Syndrome”
5. Toxicity – MCS, Environmental Illness, Heavy Metals, Mold, Neurotoxins
6. Allergies – foods, drugs, environmental
7. Nutritional Enzyme Deficiencies – abnormalities in biochemical pathways. deficiencies in magnesium, zinc, iodine
8. Mitochondrial dysfunction – fatigue 1/3 of lyme patients have this dysfunction.
9. Psychological Disorders
10. Neurological dysfunction
11. Endocrine Disorders
12. Sleep Disorders – hallmark of Lyme (cyokines)
13. Autonomic Nervous System dysfunction – +/-POTS (low B/P, palpitations)
14. GI Disorders – Celiac, Leaky Gut, Parasites, Gluten Sensitivity
15. Elevated LFT’s – Babesia, Lyme, Wilson’s
16.Pain Syndromes – Lyme mimics every pain syndrome
17. Deconditioning – need physical therapy
