Thoughts on Infections and What Not

It has been awhile since I have written a post and it will probably be awhile before another one. But something has been coming to mind lately that has inspired me to write one. I think there is a good deal of misinformation about infections. Some of it stems from a false worldview. With the […]

A Case of Asthma

I recently had a client come in who 5 years ago, in his early 50’s, was diagnosed with asthma. He started with difficulty breathing, consistent coughing, and a feeling like he couldn’t take a full breath. It got to the point that he began to live with an inhaler, for good measure, and would need […]

Insulin Resistance, Life, The Brain, and Everything

Sorry, but the answer is not 42. My last article was on Alzheimer’s and Lyme disease. I wanted this one to focus on Alzheimer’s and insulin resistance, but I felt compelled to broaden it’s scope. I’ll start by breaking down insulin resistance and then venture into the destruction it leaves in its wake. I will […]

The Role Of Lyme Disease In Alzheimer’s Disease

The prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease is rapidly increasing. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 5.7 million Americans have Alzheimer’s. That number will rise to 14 million by 2050. (1) Globally, it is estimated to reach 150 million by 2050. It is currently the 6th leading cause of death, one study says it is the 3rd. (2) It is […]

Biofilms and Chronic Infections

Approximately 80% of bacterial infections are associated with biofilms. (1) That is a seriously high percentage. Up until recently we viewed microbes as planktonic or passively floating, but this is clearly not the case. We are now looking at the majority of infections as being associated with biofilms. This has been quite illuminating on the […]

The Words of a Lyme Disease Patient

I’ve been struggling to write about my experience with Lyme disease. I’ve started a few different variations and none of them seem to fully encompass the pain (physically and emotionally), the wide-scale symptoms, and struggle that had taken over my life. There have been so many breakthroughs in the past few years that have shed […]

What is the Case with Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome?

Maybe you have heard of this or maybe not. Maybe you deal with fatigue on a daily basis or you have achy joints. I know many of you are tired and mostly likely tired of being tired. You wake up from a full night’s sleep and feel like you can sleep another 8 hours. You […]

The Root Causes of Thyroid Disorders

The prevalence of thyroid disorders in the nation are increasing. It is estimated that 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease, some say it is higher than that. Many are unaware that they have a problem. They think what they feel is “normal.” Women are much more likely to develop thyroid disease than […]

Could Your Chronic Fatigue be Caused by Lyme Disease?

Many are dealing with chronic fatigue or long-lasting low energy. You may feel reliant on caffeine. I have seen many posts and memes about not having the morning coffee, dreading waking up in the morning for work, or “Does someone have a case of the Mondays?” We are a tired bunch of people. Along with […]

The Bugs that Live With Us: Gut Microbiome and Dysbiosis

Many of my patients complain of stomach problems. Some of had chronic diarrhea others have had chronic constipation. All of them have had an upset stomach of sorts. They have tried many different avenues to figure out why and I am here to rely some information on that. So stay tuned if you are dealing with a similar […]
