Gardasil and Bartonella


Recently a peer-reviewed article linking Gardasil to behavior abnormalities via its aluminum adjuvant and HPV antigens and may “trigger neuroinflammation and autoimmune reactions” in mice was removed. The article was replaced with the following notice:

“This article has been withdrawn at the request of the Editor-in-Chief due to serious concerns regarding the scientific soundness of the article. Review by the Editor-in-Chief and evaluation by outside experts, confirmed that the methodology is seriously flawed, and the claims that the article makes are unjustified. As an international peer-reviewed journal we believe it is our duty to withdraw the article from further circulation, and to notify the community of this issue.”

The study’s lead author has stated this action is due to a conflict of interest with Merck & Co and the publication’s editor who chaired a safety evaluation committee for vaccine trials by Merck as well as provided consulting services on vaccine development to Merck and several other pharmaceutical companies. He also conducted four studies in direct affiliation with Merck including a pro-HPV trial in 2005. The following link lists more retracted news stories on Gardasil. The American College of Pediatricians has also released a statement expressing concerns in relation to premature ovarian failure or premature menopause and 213 reports in the Vaccine Adverse Reaction Database since Gardisil’s approval in 2006.

The retracted study highlights:

“the necessity of proceeding with caution with respect to further mass-immunization practices with a vaccine of yet unproven long-term clinical benefit which is capable of inducing immune-mediated cross-reactions with neural antigens of the human host. Especially considering the continually increasing number of serious disabling neurological adverse events linked to HPV vaccination reported in the current medical literature and vaccine surveillance databases.”  Also worth mentioning is Japan’s decision to withdraw its HPV vaccine recommendation due to numerous reports that formerly healthy vaccine recipients were experiencing alarming side effects ranging from short-term memory loss to paralysis.  Further, The Japan Times recently reported that a class action lawsuit will be filed after June 2016 against the Japanese government, Merck and GlaxoSmithKline by victims who have suffered severe side effects as a result of receiving the former government recommended vaccine.

Currently under U.S. federal law, no one can directly sue a vaccine manufacturer in civil court after a vaccine causes the injury or death of a minor child or adult.

There is further damning evidence that Gardasil can produce life-threatening reactions in those who have been close to a cat, fleas, or ticks, since many of these animals are infected with Bartonella, Babesia, or Lyme (borrelia). Also, since many MSIDS patients (multi systemic infectious disease syndrome) also struggle with viruses such as Mono or active EBV, a cytokine storm can result with mucus being over manufactured in lungs and airways and well as wide-spread inflammation.

Asymptomatic girls after receiving Gardasil activated dormant Bartonella which was confirmed by testing.

“Gardasil contains aluminum adjuvant nano-prticle substrates, bound to HPV16-L1 protein fragments, that appear to have mutated at binding sites, possibly resulting in excessive inflammation. The mutation attaches to the endothelial lining of blood vessels and organs, including the brain, if the host lacks sufficient active glutathione, or similar complimentary attractant, or does not readily clear toxins. Inflammatory HPV16-L1 DNA protein particles were found in autopsy tissue samples from two different teenage girls, six months after receiving her last vaccination, in the case of one deceased girl. Our findings indicate that if the blood brain barrier is open, commonly due to allergies or the common cold, these man-made inflammatory vaccine nano-particles may enter the brain, and cause additional damage, and possible demyelination.”

Statistics indicate that 50% of domestic cats in the US are infected with Bartonella, and humans can contract Bartonella and have no symptoms at all. It can lie dormant until a stressor, such as a vaccine, triggers an active infection.

Symptoms such as fatigue, pain, memory loss, cysts, Inflammatory Breast Cancer, and much more can be caused by Bartonella. For more information please read: Some states are mandating this vaccine despite the fact it has three times more reported adverse reactions than all other vaccines combined – including deaths and permanent disabilities, without proof it has stopped a single case of cervical cancer.

Systemic Enzymes

Systemic Enzymes – What are They?

When we hear the word enzymes we normally think of digestive enzymes, and while they are crucial for breaking down our food, they are not “systemic,” but are in fact utilized in the GI tract. For some people adding digestive enzymes makes all the difference in their health. If you suffer from GERD, for instance, adding digestive enzymes will revolutionize your health. Food enzymes are found in raw food. And by raw food, I mean uncooked. Systemic enzymes, on the other hand, are used all over the body and have been found to help many disease processes, and in fact, can be downright miraculous.  Enzymes are proteins used by every cell in the body that help chemical reactions within our body. We produce these enzymes but as we age, they decline like everything else.  If you think about it, this means every chemical reaction in our body is affected. These systemic enzymes help break down mucus, fibrin, toxins including viruses, allergens, and clotting factors. These are key areas to address for MSIDS (multi systemic infectious disease syndrome) patients. Unlike NSAIDS, enzymes do not hurt the liver and they also help white blood cell efficiency. And get this – they help manage yeast overgrowth. They also help you absorb vital nutrients and your improve your performance.

**The following information is for educational purposes only. Please consult with your health care practitioner before starting any therapy. There can be interactions with other things you are taking.   According to Dr. Howenstine, enzymes cannot be patented, which means mainstream medicine doesn’t promote their usage. In Europe, large doses of enzymes are used in cancer therapy. They have an enteric coating so they are not dissolved in the stomach, making them able to get into the blood without being destroyed. Systemic enzymes are also able to remove the thick layer of fibrin around cancer cells. The thick fibrin cloaks malignant cells so they are able to get by the killer immune cells. Enzymes remove this coating as well as stimulate immune cells to increase more tumor necrosis factor to attack tumors and viruses. Dr. Wyba states that one-third of pancreatic cancer cases have been cured using Wobenzyme a specific patented systemic enzyme. The patient takes up to 30 pills three times a day for life or the cancer returns.

Many MSIDS patients suffer with hyper coagulation, or thick blood often due to infection. There are numerous factors for this but one is high levels of parasites in the blood and biofilms. Systemic enzymes dissolve blood clots and therefore lessen coagulation. The only contraindication is for those with hemophilia and those on anticoagulant drugs as they may have more intense blooding with enzyme therapy. Make sure to work with your health care professional if you have either of these issues as extra precautions will need to be taken.

Regarding viruses, enzymes eat the exterior coating, rendering the virus permanently incapacitated. You have to take enough to get ahead of rapid viral replication, requiring 5-10 capsules three times a day or more. It was also discovered that those with prosthetics often need these parts replaced as bacteria are able to prevent antibiotics from killing infection due to biofilm formation. MSIDS patients have the same problem. The enzyme serrapeptase enhanced Ofloxin in cultures by preventing biofilms. Systemic enzymes could be the magic bullet to break down biofilms in MSIDS patients.
Regarding allergens, a low dose of 2-3 caps a day should prevent asthma attacks – if taken as maintenance. Enzymes thin and decrease secretions as well as alleviate symptoms of hay fever and other allergies.

Regarding pain, enzymes have helped headaches, arthritis, bursitis, and synovitis – all symptoms that are frequent with MSIDS. It is also a promising therapy for sarcoidosis. Safer than cortisone, regular enzymes will reduce fibrosis.

The truly miraculous effects of systemic enzymes is their ability to remove necrotic (dead cells) debris, reduce inflammation, balance the immune system, and remove viruses and toxins.   He also states they can benefit fibromyalgia patients. Mycoplasma, anaerobic bacteria, fungi, and borrelia have all been found in FM patients with high-resolution microscopy. Several FM patients have recovered by taking nattokinase – another enzyme that lessens fibrin production, improving blood circulation. Kidney diseases can be helped by systemic enzymes by their ability to lower swelling, inflammation, scarring (fibrosis), and immune complexes. Other conditions such as fibrocystic breasts, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, PCOS, benign prostatis hypertrophy, breast, prostate, and uterine cancers, are all estrogen excess states, producing fibrosis – which for those having these conditions correctly equate with PAIN. Endometriosis may require five or more caps three times a day until pain disappears. Fibrocystic breast disease patients should stay on enough enzymes to prevent symptoms. Taking systemic enzymes after surgery or injuries prevents excessive scar formation. All of these conditions can be helped with systemic enzymes.

**Please read Dr. Howensteine’s article in the link above if you suffer with any of these estrogen dominant diseases as he discusses in far more detail the interaction of various hormones and why these disease states are becoming more prevalent. I feel there is a desperate need for this information as this issue is far more common than not. Also, for more information regarding the use of bioidentical hormones please listen to PhD Kathy Lynch from Women’s International Pharmacy:

**Do not take systemic enzymes 24-36 hours before elective surgery and do not resume until 24-36 hours after the operation as they could prevent normal clotting in small blood vessels.

Here’s what’s in systemic enzymes and what each ingredient does:

Rutin: a bioflavinoid that strengthens and controls the permeability of blood vessels and capillary walls, lowering blood pressure and slowing aging.
Serrapeptase: anti-inflammatory, anti-edema, and fibrinolytic properties. Less swelling after surgery, less breast pain for fibrocystic patients, electrophysiologic proof of recovery in carpal tunnel syndrome patients.
Protease: breaks down proteins and are important to digestion as they liberate needed amino acids. Helps with inflammation, immune regulation, breaking down cellular debris including toxins in the blood, freeing up the immune system to concentrate on bacterial, parasitical, and viral infections. Those with a protease deficiency have excess alkalinity which can cause anxiety and insomnia, arthritis, osteoporosis and other calcium-deficient diseases. Inadequate protein digestion results in hypoglycemia, which means moodiness.“>

Amylase: breaks down sugar and starch, and also digests dead white blood cells. Involved in anti-inflammatory reactions such as those caused by the release of histamine. The amylase deficient may have issues with psoriasis, eczema, hives, insect bites, allergies, atopic dermatitis, all types of herpes, and lung problems such as asthma and emphysema.
Papain: found naturally in unripe papayas, it has been used as a meat tenderizer as it breaks down the fibers in muscle tissue, as well as in preparation of cell cultures due to its ability to dissolve bonds between cells. It helps break down foods for digestion.
Trypsin: also breaks down protein into amino acids for absorption in the blood stream, as well as breaking down casein in milk, dissolving blood cloths in its microbial form, and treating inflammation in its pancreatic form. Atlantic cod trypsin in an oral spray was found to protect those inoculated with rhinovirus.
Lipase: breaks down fats into fatty acids and glycerol. Helps control appetite and healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Those deficient in lipase have decreased cell permeability which means nutrients cannot get in and waste cannot get out, as well as muscle spasms, and spastic colon.
Chymotrypsin: Also breaks down proteins to produce enzymes for digestion and absorption of food. Also is anti-inflammatory. The presence and amount in stool is measured as a test of pancreatic function. Used for those with pancreatic insufficiency (impaired digestion, malabsorption and passing of undigested food in stool, gas, abdominal bloating, and nutrient deficiencies. Incomplete digestion of proteins may result in allergies and the formation of toxic substances. Helps keep the small intestine free from parasites such as bacteria, yeast, protozoa, and worms. Used to treat shingles, acne, age spots, sun damage, ulcerations and abscesses, arthritis and other autoimmune diseases, infections, injuries, and possibly cancer.
Bromelain: found in pineapples, it too digests protein. Used for indigestion and inflammation. When used on the skin it may be useful for removing dead tissue from third-degree burns. May reduce cough and nasal mucus as well as pain. It can kill some viruses and bacteria, and has anti-tumor properties and may help the effectiveness of certain chemotherapy drugs.
Quercetin Dihydrate: a bioflavonoid (plant pigment) found in fruits, vegetables, grains, and leaves. It is an anti-oxidant, anti-carcinogenic, neuroactive, anti-artherogenic, supports cardiovascular health, balanced blood pressure, protects against stress, and has an antihistamine effect.
Questions about Systemic Enzymes

“When is the best time to take a protease supplement?
For maximum systemic benefit, it is best to take proteases between meals as this allows for faster absorption into circulation. However, if this is not realistic for your patient, then it is ok to take proteases with meals knowing that some of the protease enzymes may be used to digest food proteins. Also, it is better to take small doses several times throughout the day rather than one or two large doses in a day. Common dosing times are first thing in the morning, mid-morning, mid-afternoon, and bedtime.
Can protease enzymes be taken with NSAIDS and/or prescription medications?
Digestive enzymes function by breaking down specific chemical bonds in foods. In most cases digestive enzymes can therefore safely be taken with medications. However, it is of course always recommended to let your health care provider know what you are taking.
Can protease enzymes be taken with prescription blood thinners?
One area of caution is with prescription blood thinning agents. These types of prescription drugs interfere with the natural blood clotting mechanisms, while proteases break down fibrin allowing for better blood flow. They can be taken in conjunction, but it is recommended to dose them about four hours apart and monitor lab work closely. We recommend notifying and working with the doctor prescribing the medications.
Can you take protease enzymes when taking prescription “protease inhibitors”?
More often than not, the term “protease” that describes proteolytic enzymes is used in very general terms. There are many metabolic proteases in our body, each with many different functions. The medications that are designed as protease inhibitors are targeting a very specific viral protease. The supplemental digestive proteases are very different and will not interfere with the medication. In fact, oral supplemental digestive enzymes can be very supportive to those patients with auto-immune disorders.”

How to choose the best systemic enzymes:

Some examples of Systemic Enzymes:





I’m sure there are many more types out there.  Do a google search and more will crop up.  I personally have used WobenzymN as well as Vascuzyme with great success.  The WobenzymN was expired by two years and still worked.  I switched to Vascuzyme by Ortho Molecular as it was stronger and my LLMD sells it in his office.  Make sure to read about the different types as they have different ingredients, dosages, and strengths.

**As you read above, please consult with your health care professional – particularly if you are taking blood thinners or have a blood disorder.  One site also stated that you SHOULD NOT take systemic enzymes if you are also taking antibiotics.  Discuss all of this with your practitioner.

My husband and I both tried WobenzymN while in antibiotic treatment and felt nothing.  After we quit antibiotics due to not herxing any longer and being fairly symptom-free for 3-4 months (except the excruciating pain in my head/neck/spine and his itching and fatigue) we started an herbal program for maintenance.  After 4 months of this with the pain still there, I retried the WobenzymN and within the first dose it took 70% of my pain away.  Since then the pain is 99% gone.  All I take is 3 capsules each morning on an empty stomach.

May Support Meetings

As you know, May is Lyme Disease awareness month.  In that spirit we will be having two support meetings:  Saturdays May 14 and 28 (2016) from 2:30-4:30pm at Madison Pinney Library, 204 Cottage Grove Road, Madison, WI 53716

May 14 will be a regular support meeting.  Feel free to bring what has helped you the most.  Sometimes we learn the most from each other.  Also, feel free to bring questions as many have tried various things and can give feedback.

May 28 Dr. David Baewer of Coppe Labs will be speaking to the group.  Stay tuned for a bio and the details of his talk.

Stay safe while gardening and enjoying the beauty of Wisconsin.  For more information on how to do that:

Please tuck your pants into your socks and wear light colored clothing. Perhaps choose 1 set for this purpose. Then go out and buy some Permetherin spray. You can find this at most outdoorsy types of shops like Gander Mountain. Spray your shoes, socks, and pants down and let try. This spray will hold for 6 weeks provided you wash the cloths by hand and hang dry. Also, wear a light colored shirt (preferably long sleeved) and gloves. Spray the gloves as well, making sure everything is dry before putting on. If you are underneath trees and vegetation, wear a hat that’s also been sprayed.

Should you find a tick, remove carefully without squeezing. Some are now recommending using an ether spray (like the kind you use on warts) on the tick and waiting until it falls off.   Excellent article on using Permethrin with details such as how long it lasts on your clothing under various conditions. You should not spray this on your skin – only your clothing.

***Also, please note that Susan Paskewitz, Professor and Researcher, Medical Entomology Laboratory, UW Madison, says they are finding ticks in open spaces now – meaning, places like soccer and football fields with short grass. This presents a risk for everyone but particularly children playing sports in open fields. Please share this information with your family and friends and educate anyone who will listen.

***Also, be careful when mowing or cutting down areas that contain ticks. Make sure to blow away from your house not toward it. I found ticks on my basement screens and crawling up my walls last summer due to a farmer unknowingly mowing a tick infested area toward our house.

Stay safe and try not to freak out. You are educated and know what to do. Knowledge is certainly power when it comes to ticks.


CDC/ Dr. Philip S. Brachman, 1961,  ID #4509

I once heard it said, “Not everything is Lyme Disease, but Lyme Disease CAN BE EVERYTHING.”  

Rashes are now a part of your life.  Bizarre, hard to pin down, skin markings are your new norm.  Sometimes they itch, sometimes they burn – but everyone, including your doctor, scratches their head.  One such rash is caused by the human parvovirus B-19, a member of the Parvoviridae family of viruses that lives in the infected’s nose and throat.  It is spread via the air through coughing and sneezing, and is just one more pathogen that attacks the red blood cells.  It can also be spread congenitally and through blood products.

There is a blood test that is 92-97% specific which tests for a particular antibody or protein the body produces in response to the infection.  The patient has a bright red rash on the cheeks, and it appears as if the face were slapped.  Also, note that there can be joint pain often in the hands, knees, and feet.  Other symptoms include fever, headache, and a runny nose.

“Some people may get a second rash a few days later on their chest, back, buttocks, or arms and legs. The rash may be itchy, especially on the soles of the feet. It can vary in intensity and usually goes away in 7 to 10 days, but it can come and go for several weeks. As it starts to go away, it may look lacy.”

Other possible causes that need to be ruled out include:  rubella, Mono, allergic reactions, Lupus, and yes – Lyme Disease.

Since this is a virus, there is no specific treatment, but there is much you can do to make your body a tough target.  Read here:  Also, please know that as you treat MSIDS, you are automatically making your body a tougher target for viruses as well.  Often, those that have a high ANA (antinuclear antibody), which is indicative of Lupus, are pleased to find that as they treat MSIDS, their numbers return to normal.  Even in a normal population, 20% have a high ANA.  Other conditions that are possible are: thyroid disease, certain liver conditions, and other autoimmune diseases (i.e. Lyme Disease).

In the immunocompromised it can cause chronic anemia.

In a powerful editorial in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Research, an international team of researchers said evidence that bugs are behind Alzheimer’s is ‘incontrovertible’ and can no longer be ignored.

There are more than 100 studies linking the cold sore bugherpes simplex virus 1, or HSV-1 to it, as well as a bacterium that causes pneumonia. The researchers argue that after working their way into the brain the microbes lie dormant, only to be awakened by aging or illness.  They can then kill vital brain cells, triggering the symptoms of Alzheimer’s. The theory also states that beta-amyloid, the toxic protein often thought to be a cause of the disease, is actually made by the brain to fight off the bugs.

Despite conventional wisdom stating that Alzheimer’s is either caused by faulty genes or a combination of bad luck and aging, the UK research has raised fears the disease could be spread through blood transfusions, operations and even dental work.

The editorial concludes that with tests of hundreds of other drugs coming to nothing, the time is ripe to look at alternatives.

Bugs causing Alzheimer’s is nothing new to the Lyme/MSIDS community.

Two Astounding Quotes from the documentary “Under Our Skin”: 

“I extracted DNA from 10 Alzheimer brains that came from the Harvard University brain bank. Using molecular methods I was able to find the DNA of the Spirochete which causes Lyme disease in 7 out of 10 of the Alzheimer specimens that I received from Harvard.” – Dr. Alan B. MacDonald

“We never had, in the last 5 years, a single Alzheimer Disease, Lou Gehrig’s Disease / ALS, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis / MS patient who did not test positive for Borrelia Burgdorferi (Lyme Disease bacteria), not a single one. – Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt

Iowan, Jack Gordon, is a case discovery of 2 diseases NEVER found together before on 11.22.2015: Lewy Body Dementia, causing violent hallucinations, and Lyme Disease/MSIDS.  Using his medical files, he was bitten by a tick 35 yrs. ago, but the doctors never acknowledged it by diagnosing or treating him.

You may recognize Lewy Body Dementia as what Robin Williams’ autopsy revealed.



Remember the Chinese manufactured tainted dog food and heparin recall?

Now there are more than 20,000 doses of improperly stored and expired vaccines illegally sold for $90 million on the black market by more than 100 people associated with Chinese companies and vaccination centers.

Many pharmaceutical products are made overseas where they are not subject to U.S. FDA regulations.  The Catch 22 is vaccine manufacturers can not be held liable for vaccine injuries and deaths.

“It is unclear what percentage of the vaccines currently used in the United States are made by Chinese pharmaceutical companies in China or by Western companies with manufacturing facilities in China. We do know that major U.S. and European vaccine makers such as Merck & Co., GlaxoSmithKline plc, and Sanofi Pasteur SA maintain vaccine manufacturing operations in China, that this activity is on the rise, and that Western vaccine makers are also establishing joint venture partnerships with Chinese vaccine companies.”

“A 2012 article in USA Today, however, did report that the FDA estimates that 80% of the ingredients in pharmaceuticals produced by U.S. companies and 40% of the “finished medications” Americans take come from outside the U.S. and, increasingly they come from China and India.”

The FDA inspects drug manufacturing facilities in China and India once every 14 years and can not come unannounced, and up to two-thirds have never had an inspection.
