Lyme disease, MS, ALS, Parkinson's, Autism, and many other chronic illnesses...have been shown to have ammonia accumulating in the brain and tissues. It is imperative to the healing process that you and your doctor address the ammonia at the same time as you are addressing the cause of the ammonia...the Lyme bacteria, through the Borrelia burgdorferi production of urease enzyme!
Hyperammonemia (Excess accumulation of ammonia in the brain and tissues of the body) in combination with cerebral venous circulation disturbances, microbial issues and metabolic pathway dysfunction are largely unaddressed components that cause muscle weakness, muscle wasting, profound fatigue, mitochondria damage, tremors, brain dysfunction, depersonalization, depression, neuropathy, and muscle fasciculations (involuntary movements of muscles) seen in MS, ALS, and Parkinson's disease. Of course, poor oral bite/TMJ dynamics, environmental electro-polution, dental mercury and environmental heavy metals, dietary and environmental toxins, also play an important role in the development of these illnesses, however this article focuses on the huge problem of excess ammonia. Stopping the accumulation of ammonia often stops the progression of these illnesses.
Other significant causes of excess ammonia production are SIBO gut microbial infections, such as H. Pylori bacterial infections, as well as other secondary sources that can add to the load of ammonia, such as Candida-type yeast which catabolize dietary amino-acids into ammonia in the gut. Another cause of excessive ammonia is chronic liver dysfunction, as well as chronic kidney dysfunction.
"Souring the Milk!" Making the Body an Inhospitable Home for Bacteria to Overgrow!
The challenge then is to "sour the milk" or shift your body's internal environment to one that makes survival very difficult for the bacteria. Correcting the hyperammonemia (high ammonia) issue can help achieve a less hospitable environment for the bacteria, making your other antibacterial efforts possibly more effective.
You must use the correct tool for the job. Diet, combined with full-spectrum infrared sauna therapy, remedies, nutrition, hands on treatments, and so much more are needed to optimize the body's ability to bring down the population of bacteria, and eliminate the ammonia.
- Eliminate the source of ammonia, the bacteria
- Eliminate the ammonia, through ammonia-specific supplements
- Support the organs of elimination
Our Hansa Center doctors are trained to also target and suppress the production of urease by the bacteria to help eliminate the ammonia.
Fiber is another important component of supporting proper bowel movements and the removal of toxins. Fiber acts like a sponge in the intestines, so I recommend Chewable Total Fiber by Nutriwest, Inc. It is better to have a somewhat dry sponge that can soak up poisonous cellular debris, than to drag a wet rag through the gut, like many fiber products that are mixed in water.
Drink plenty of purified water everyday to help support cellular function and to support the rapid clearing of toxins. Most people are dehydrated, often even when they drink a lot of water, because they have destroyed the membranes responsible for fluid transportation, impairing the body's ability to effectively distribute water to the tissues. When the membranes are damaged, a person will often drink copious amounts of water, yet most of the water is rapidly urinated out. This leads to stagnation and dehydration in the tissues and organs, which can be addressed by using a product called Gather Vitality, by K'an Herbs, Inc.
Juicing your own green drinks or getting them from your local health food store is another vitally important step in supporting the organs of elimination. My favorite recipe juicing recipe:
- One organic cucumber,
- Two to three leaves and stalks each of organic kale and rainbow chard,
- One organic Granny Smith apple,
- One organic whole lime,
- A small bunch of parsley or cilantro.
Another great way to increase cellular energy is to take Berberine w/ MicroPQQ and CoQ10.
A Huge Help for Those with Any Illness
For those people who are profoundly drained of energy, cannot handle oral supplements well, are dehydrated, or have poor detoxification abilities, I highly recommend you use your internet search engine and find a I.V. hydration clinic in your area that offers nutritional I.V.'s called Myer's Cocktails. I advise adding 1000 to 2000 mg of Glutathione and extra Vitamin C. This can be done weekly to monthly depending upon your condition. These clinics are usually very easy to get into, often without an appointment or a doctor's prescription, and most are staffed by highly-qualified Nurse Practitioners.
Core Body Temperature Issues
The Hansa Center Difference:
This article outlines the very basics of addressing toxicity in the body. I cannot do justice to the incredible complexity of what each of our doctors can bring to bear upon each person's case who comes to the Hansa Center. We have found that it is best to start with a two-week, all-inclusive package of care that enables us to apply maximum effort in daily hour long office visits with the doctor to really dig down and identify everything we can that has gone wrong in a person's body and determine unique ways to facilitate their body's ability to restore optimum function. This hyperlink is an effort to give you an idea of what the first few days of treatment at the Hansa Center would be like.
