Today I had the pleasure of attending some advanced Energy Kinesiology training and adding some new tools to my toolbox. Our focus was on working with the Borrelia bacteria that causes Lyme Disease. Some of the interesting things I learned
- There are 20 known strains of Borrelia and only four of them can cause Lyme disease.
- The bacteria uses 3 specialized tricks to evade a human’s immune system. They recruit the mammalian host complement regulators, exploit tick proteins, and possess factors with affect the host complement system.
- The core Borrelia DNA is augmented with a variable number of plasmids (small circular DNA) which provide it with its ability to resist antibiotics by rapidly altering its surface proteins.
- The Borrelia bacteria has develop an amazing ability to go dormant in a host and create “Persister Cells’. When times get tough and your body (and/or antibiotics) are beating it down, it starts expressing a toxin it carries inside of to make itself go dormant (hibernate). It also expresses an anti-toxin that it uses to keep itself from killing itself. It can stay dormant for very long times and remain undetected. When it decides it’s ready to get active again, it uses its own anti-toxin to wake it up. This is why folks with Lyme disease often seem fine for long periods of time, then have stress in their life, and suddenly the Lyme goes active again.
- There are many different types of ectoparasites (organisms in/on your skin) that can transmit Lyme Disease. It’s not just ticks.
From an Energy Kinesiological perspective, we discussed how to deal with all of this. I now have formats (LINK) that allow deep energetic access to the 20 different strains of bacteria, their Resistor and Persistor forms, all the possible ectoparasites and the toxins they transmit, and the unique enzymes inside the actual bacteria that could be affecting a person. More importantly, I also now have specialized balances designed to address how all this works when someone is exposed to the bacteria, and also how to support the host immune system against the bacteria. I have not had time to work with it myself, but the word on the street amongst my colleagues is that it does some amazing stuff for those who already have the disease by working with the immune system (phagocytic barriers in the body, NK1-T cells, NK- cells, Complement Factors H/C4/C2/C8/C8a/C9, plasminogen, Dendritic Cells, and Memory B-cells for those that care).
Not bad for a 1 day class. Tomorrow we will be digging into the alpha and beta estrogen receptors and their involvement with breast cancer.
