For people that have chronic joint pain, headaches, and inflammation that are not improving with Lyme disease treatment
by Greg Lee

On foraging trips with the local mushroom society, my mom would cringe as inexperienced newcomers would pick poisonous mushrooms that looked similar to edible ones. Fortunately on every trip, there were several mushroom experts that could teach the group how to distinguish between poisonous look-a-likes and their edible cousins. The embarrassed newcomers were extremely grateful learn the difference and avoid a trip to the emergency room for mushroom poisoning.

How is mistaking a poisonous mushroom for an edible look-a-like similar to a misdiagnosed Lyme disease infection?

Just like picking a poisonous mushroom that looks edible, there are infections that can produce symptoms very similar to a Lyme disease infection
Claire suffered with chronic migraines, back pain, joint inflammation, disturbed sleep, and high blood pressure. Her tests for all sorts of autoimmune disorders, infections, heart disease came up negative. She was prescribed high blood pressure and anti-inflammatory medicines for her symptoms. She was suspected of having Lyme disease due to living in an endemic area and her chronic recurring symptoms. Her Lyme Western Blot tests all came back negative.

Various medications, supplements and treatments gave her some relief for her migraines and joint symptoms
Chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, and anti-inflammatory supplements brought some relief, however symptoms would quickly return a few days later. After many months, her doctor gave her the diagnosis of fibromyalgia and a prescription for Cymbalta. This medication helped a little with the pain. For several years, Claire just lived with the side effects of the medication: nausea, fatigue, and sweats. Fortunately, she decided to get a new type of scan that checks for electrical frequencies of different infections.

Electro-dermal scanning technology can help to find the hidden causes of persistent symptoms
Claire received an electro-dermal scan that checked different systems of her body for illness, infections, and possible remedies. The scan identified an elevated frequency corresponding to a Streptococcus B hemolytic infection hiding in her sinus and in her intestines. According to the CDC website1, “[One of] the most common problems caused by Group B strep in adults are: Bone and joint infections.” Neurological strep infections have been associated with Parkinson’s disease2. Could Strep B be contributing to Claire’s joint problems also?

Here are four strategies for clearing a Streptococcus B infection that helped Claire feel better quickly
Given that the strep B infection could be systemic, Claire’s treatment and medicines were focused on clearing out her infection from her sinuses, intestines, and joints. Strep can move through the blood, so anti-strep treatments for clearing infection from her entire body were also used. Given her concerns about drug resistant infections, she decided to try a natural approach first before taking more antibiotics. A combination of treatment and anti-strep natural medicines brought relief quickly.

Strategy #1: Use sublingual essential oils to target sinus infections
Claire received a mixture of essential oils that have inhibited strep B and strep species in lab studies: cinnamon, lemongrass3, clove4, eucalyptus, and tea tree5. Every night, she held a few drops under her tongue to allow the oils to diffuse into her sinus cavities. Within a few days her headaches subsided. Claire also drank herbs processed into a liposomal mixture to target infections in her body.

Strategy #2: Take liposomal herbs to focus on system infections
Liposomal herbs are processed into a very small particle size and have a lecithin (lipid) covering which increases absorption. Claire took a customized liposomal mixture of herbs that inhibit or have anti-strep properties in different experiments: forsythia fruit6, artemisia argyii7, angelica root8, asparagus root9, buplerum10, scutellaria11, coptidis12, sophora13, tree peony14, honeysuckle flower15, and curcuma zedoraria16. Liposomal herbal formulas have been highly effective at relieving joint symptoms compared to herbs in alcohol tinctures, decoctions, or powdered herbs for patients infected with Lyme disease17. Frequency Specific Microcurrent treatments also help to target localized and systemic strep infections.

Strategy #3: Apply Frequency Specific Microcurrent to kill strep locally and systemically
Frequency Specific Microcurrent treatments uses a pair of low level electrical currents, labelled A and B, in the millionths of an amp range. The “A” current pair was used for killing strep B or eliminating strep toxins. The “B” current pair was used to target the entire body, sinuses, small intestine, large intestine, low back, and lower extremity joints18. Claire felt much more relaxed and energized after receiving microcurrent frequencies for killing and detoxing strep systemically and locally. Changing her diet also helped.

Strategy #4: Eat foods that help kill strep
There are foods that have inhibit strep in lab experiments. Claire added asparagus19, scallion20, and drank chrysanthemum flower21 tea to her diet to fight strep. She felt a difference in her symptoms soon after getting treatments, taking her medicines, and changing her diet.

Claire felt a big difference in a few days
Three days after her first treatment, she felt a huge decrease in her joint pain.  She was excited to feel how treatment, the essential oils and herbs were working. The diet seemed to help also. A few weeks into her treatment, she increased her dose of essential oils and then felt worse from killing off too many germs too quickly. After backing her dose down of herbs and oils, she found that she was less symptomatic and more functional. A combination of four strategies can help you fight a systemic strep infection.

These four strategies can help to fight off a systemic strep infection
Just like being able to identify edible mushrooms versus poisonous ones, electro-dermal testing helps to identify which infections may be the biggest troublemakers. Antimicrobial strategies can then be selected to target the most troublesome infections. In Claire’s example, sub-lingual and oral essential oils, herbs, Frequency Specific Microcurrent, and dietary changes helped her to reduce the symptoms caused by a systemic strep infection. Since some of these herbs and essential oils have cautions on their use, work with an herbalist knowledgeable in antimicrobial medicines to develop a proper, safe, and effective strategy for your condition.

    My friend had chronic right neck pain. I could muscle test that it was viral, but no oral antiviral remedies or frequencies gave more than temporary relief. One day I did a remote scan on her using a computer system. There was strong reactivity to the electro-signal labeled “Hepatitis C” . I was shocked. I turned on the “remote” option on the machine and let it run. It strengthened the weak neck energy, so I knew it might help.

    The next morning she called me and asked, “Are you working on me with the computer?”
    “Of course.” I replied.
    “Well what ever you are doing, keep doing it. Today was the first morning in months that I woke up without neck pain.” she said

    Several recurrences of the neck pain have also been relieved by re-running the “Hep C” signal. She has no conventional diagnosis, and I don’t really know for sure the true cause of the neck pain. But something in the electro-signal labeled “Hepatitis C” on that machine gives her relief.
    Personally, I have never seen diagnosed Hep C permanently clear on anybody, with any combination of conventional and/or alternative treatment, so I am not advocating this as a proper treatment.

  3. Hi Vicki,

    I’m sorry to hear about your health challenges. In my patients with interstitial cystitis, I have found several strategies help them reduce discomfort and inflammation. 1. Eliminating food that trigger symptoms like sugar, wheat, acidic foods, and dairy. Some patients will use baking soda, apple cider vinegar, and lemon juice to reduce acidity. There are many anti-candida diets. 2. Frequency Specific Microcurrent treatment has helped reduce inflammation in the bladder in several patients. Microcurrent treatment for killing and detoxifying bacterial infections has been helpful for reducing symptoms. 3. Visceral manipulation has helped relieve swelling and pain in the bladder area. 4. Retention enemas with freeze dried garlic & probiotics & anti-parasite remedies, colonics, oral probiotics, liver – gall bladder flushes have also been very helpful for reducing symptoms of infection and getting toxins out. 5. Topical and oral essential oils for targeting infection and reducing inflammation. Please consult with a qualified health care practitioner before implementing any changes to your treatment plan.

  4. Hi Kathleen,

    That sounds like great results. I think we are just beginning to understand how subtle energy medicine can be helpful for treating chronic illness.

  5. Hi there. Interesting article. I’ve been told by a few practitioners that there is an issue with my tonsils, seems like I probably have had chronic Strep most of my life. How can you get this out of the tonsil tissues? From what I have heard, it’s difficult to do. I’m planning on booking a trip to get regenerative cryotherapy done on my tonsils. Any thoughts on other natural measures I can take?

  6. I heard that Dr. Klinghardt recommends regenerative cryotherapy. We have found that anti-strep essential oils, ionic silver, German biologic homeopathics, and liposomal anti-strep herbs have helped reduce tonsil infection symptoms in Strep patients.

    Please where do you get the liposomal herbs??? I have the same strep intestinal infection for over 10 years and need help clearing it!!! Thank you so much. It is a nightmare, literallly and figuratively! You should post where to get this herb combo so everyone can order or at least the practitioner who did it for you.

  8. We are one of the only clinics in the US that make customized Liposomal herbal remedies for patients. I have not found vendors that sell anti-strep herbs in Liposomal form.
