Perhaps we do not have all the guidelinew information needed to dismiss the use of this agent. Please work one muscle group at a time and perform extensive and extended stretching to each muscle group immediately after each one is exercised, before moving on to the next muscle group.

Endocarditis and myocarditis have been reported. The efficacy of this regimen is based on the fact that it takes 48 to guidelihes hours of continuous bactericidal antibiotic levels to kill the spirochete, yet it will take longer than the four to five days between pulses for the spirochetes to recover. If this guiidelines, decrease the dose temporarily, or interrupt treatment for several days, then resume with a lower bhrrascano. Several days after the onset of appropriate antibiotic therapy, symptoms often flare due to lysis of the spirochetes with release of increased amount of antigenic material and possibly bacterial toxins.

Physical therapy alone is not enough. In general, early disseminated LB is treated for four to six weeks, and late LB usually requires a minimum of four to six months of continuous treatment.

This definition is meant to be used for surveillance purposes only, not for diagnosis. However, this clearly does not fit with in vitro and a large body of clinical data, which have demonstrated the usefulness of this agent in the Lyme patient. Because of the extreme fatigue and body pain, many Lyme sufferers end up spending inordinate amounts of time in bed, and get far less exercise than they did before they became ill. Doses found to be effective clinically are often higher than those recommended in older texts.


Yeast overgrowth is especially common. High risk bites are treated as follows remember the possibility of coinfection! View All Lyme Disease Conversations. This whole-body conditioning program is what is required to achieve wellness.

The body will manufacture its gyidelines C0Q 10 when the original illness is controlled, but only if stimulated by aggressive exercise. However, pulsed dose therapy and regular use of the lactobacillus preparations seems to be helpful in controlling yeast and antibiotic related colitis, as the number of cases of C. It is known that Babesia infection, like Lyme Borreliosis, is immunosuppressive.

Therefore, real, clinical Lyme as we have come to know it, especially the later and more severe presentations, probably represents a mixed infection. Never give steroids or any other immunosuppressant to any patient who may even remotely be suffering from Lyme, or serious, permanent damage may result, especially if given for anything greater than a short course. Because it takes 48 to 72 hours of therapy to initiate bacterial killing, the Herxheimer reaction is therefore delayed.

About Joseph Burrascano, MD

This is a mixture of household liquid bleach Cloroxone teaspoon in four ounces of water. This is the time for the very best of health habits. Metronidazole Flagyl is commonly used in select patients with treatment resistant, chronic Lyme.

If levels are too low at tolerated doses, give parenterally or change to another drug. We have seen this clinically, with the ultimate result being full blown Chronic Lyme Disease.

Dr. Burrascano- Treatment Recommendations – Get it Right! Treat the Bite!

In the co-infected Lyme patient, eradication may be difficult. Apparently, Bb can shift among the three forms during the course of the infection and cause the varying serologic responses seen over time, including seronegativity. However, these high doses can be difficult to tolerate. There are at least thirteen Babesial forms found in ticks, yet we can currently only test for B.


This test is available at some centers and on the internet. Non-compliance, alcohol use on a regular basis, and failure of the patient to obtain proper rest. Joseph Burrascano, now retired as a treating physician. This means when the body of the tick is squeezed upon removal, irritated with toxic chemicals in an effort to get it to back out, or disrupted in such a way that its contents were allowed to contact the bite wound.

SAFETY Nearly two decades of experience in treating guideljnes of patients with Lyme has proven that therapy as described above, although intense, is generally well tolerated. Standard blood smears for direct visualization of organisms in leukocytes are of low burrawcano.

Magnesium is predominantly an intracellular ion, so blood level testing is of little value. Burraascano spirochete load increases, especially from subsequent tick bites, the morbidity brrascano Lyme increases. Because Bb serologies often give inconsistent results, test at more than one laboratory using, if possible, different methods.

Patients who are not cured with this regimen can be retreated but with higher doses, as this has proven effective in many of my patients. Be vigilant for treatment-related problems such as antibiotic-associated colitis, yeast overgrowth, intravenous catheter complications, and abnormalities in blood counts and chemistries. In practice, these patients seem to do best with a combination regimen that utilizes agents that can penetrate cells.

In later stages, it also includes a very significant degree of immune suppression.


One must follow such diaries, temperature readings in late afternoon, physical findings, guivelines from physical therapists, and cognitive testing to best judge when to change or end antibiotics. In addition to measuring free T3 and T4 levels, check basal A. Take one 50 mg B-complex capsule daily.
