Do You Know How Toxic Your Life Is?

Do You Know How Toxic Your Life Is?
Intentionality in changing our buying and cleaning habits is vital for protecting our well-being. In order to be stronger and live longer, we must choose to create a healing habitat that effectively eliminates toxins in our bodies and reduces the source of toxins in our environment so that restoration of optimum health can occur.   These check-points will alert you to some of the ways to improve your health through behavioral changes:   1. Check in your sink and under it   Dishwashing liquid residue is left on dishes and eaten, use a non-toxic alternative such as Seventh Generation Free & Clear Laundry Liquid Clean your sponge; studies have shown that the degree of contamination of sponges of a hundred million to one billion microorganisms of any kind per sponge. Wash your sponge (put it in your dishwasher even). Toxic chemical arsenal under the sick! Yes, most of us are...

Why is Lyme Disease Largely Being Ignored?

Today I was asked the following question via a comment on my Facebook page "In your humble opinion, WHY is media & gov't ignoring the plight of over 2.3+ billion people in their suffering? Is it because of their involvement in bioweaponizing this bacteria on {C}Plum Island or is it deeper than this? This is question many of us are plagued with... God Bless Always. Thank you." Mary B. Dear Mary, I have pondered this same question for the past 12 years that I have been helping people with this illness. While Lyme disease might have been a weaponized bug from Plum Island, it comes down to who is going to treat these chronically ill people in a hospital setting. In a hospital the human conditions are departmentalized into Neurology, Cardiology, Nephrology, Rheumatology, Infectious Disease, and every other '...ology. Most chronic Lyme sufferers have virtually every system being effected to...

Flu Season is coming… - NOT!

Flu Season is coming… - NOT!
  Do We Really Believe Flu-viruses and Bacteria are Stronger in the Winter Time? Every year the pharmaceutical/medical mass media marketing begins in the Fall-season and proceeds through late Spring in fear-mongering everyone into believing they must get flu shots. When considering the fact that historically influenza viruses have killed many people throughout the last hundred years it would seem justified to think we should be thankful for vaccines. The truth is that no virus or bacteria can replicate out of control and cause disease in an optimally healthy person of any age! (See my recommendations at the end of this article on how to reach optimum health) In a dominantly poorly functioning society of people who are loaded with environmental toxins and pesticide/herbicide/fungicide/preservative-laden foods, not to mention the deleterious effects of the average American taking an average of 12 pharmaceutical suppressive/symptom-masking medicines that are weakening the overall integrity and...

Childhood Stress and Lyme Disease

By Dr. David Jernigan of Hansa Center for Optimum Health   Childhood Lyme infections can be somewhat easier to address, due to the pristine nature of most children’s bodies, and if it is caught early. At the same time, Lyme in children can be devastating; depending upon their health heritage and the degree of balanced life and stress in the child’s life prior to becoming sick. These issues will dictate how well a child processes through the illness. In a child’s life, stress comes from all directions. In children, as in adults, prolonged stress predisposes one to illness by changing the cellular chemistry. It must be remembered that every thought, especially those thoughts backed by strong emotions, is every cell’s command to change its chemical production in order to bring that thought/emotion into reality. Strong negative emotions promote alterations in the immune system’s ability to keep bacteria and other microbes...

Can Lyme Disease Be Cured?

The question of whether or not Lyme disease can be cured is a recurring question that is asked every doctor who is faced with a person suffering from the disease. The term “Cure” is almost taboo in the healing arts profession. No doctor that I know of is willing to say they can cure any illness…especially not Lyme disease. Before we just say an absolute “No” that Lyme disease is incurable lets see what the best medical dictionaries define the word “Cure” as meaning. After all, these medical dictionaries are the basis of what even the most agnostic doctors hold up as “truth.” The following are taken from Dorland’s Medical Dictionary and Stedman’s Medical Dictionary. Cure noun. 1. Restoration of health; recovery from disease. 2. A method or course of medical treatment used to restore health. 3. An agent, such as a drug, that restores health; a remedy. 4. Something...

In Sickness and in Health: …Married to Your Doctor!

By Dr. David Jernigan of the Hansa Center for Optimum Health   Plum blossoms covered the trees on the hillside overlooking the house and garden. A warm breeze sent thousands of petals swirling up into the blue sky like a synchronized flight of white butterflies. As the breeze abandoned them aloft the flight broke apart into graceful catchers of sunlight as they drifted down eventually settling in a delicately scented caress on her body as Su Lin lay on her pallet in the garden as part of her prescribed treatment. The physician leaned over her administering his potent tea of carefully selected herbs. He would not be paid on this visit. The year is 821 B.C. and during the Zhou Dynasty of China the physician only gets paid if you stay healthy. It had been ten years since Su Lin experienced any symptom at all. She was just ten when...

Lyme Disease: Why Don’t I Feel Better?

The question that dominates most Lyme Disease Forums is why don’t I feel better, even after doing everything I can think of to get well. The dominant protocols are conventional medicine’s Long-term antibiotics, and natural medicine protocols; such as the Zhang Protocol, The Cowden Protocol, The Klinghardt Protocol, and The Jernigan Perfect-7 Protocol. The reality is that no canned protocol, natural or conventional, can do everything and cover every potential health issue. Most if not all of the natural protocols are designed to address the most common issues that lead to illness in Lyme disease. None of the protocols can address every issue, since not every issue needing to be corrected can be fixed with a pill or nutritional supplement. For example, if you dislocate your finger there isn’t a pill in the world that can correct that finger. You must find a doctor with the knowledge necessary to correctly...

Realities of Antibiotics for Lyme Disease

 Article by Dr. David Jernigan It may seem that I am 'anti-antibiotic treatment'; however, the reality is that there is a time and a place in which antibiotics can be beneficial for some people. Antibiotics are definitely not a solution I recommend if at all possible to avoid, due to the many, very real, direct, and unavoidable adverse effects on the integrity of the body, not to mention the potential for side effects and allergic reactions. I am amazed at how many people already know they are allergic to at least one class of antibiotic. The problem I have seen repeatedly is that a worsening of symptoms is expected by many doctors as an indication to them that the medicine is working -- the proverbial 'Herx' reaction. But how does one know when it is a true adverse reaction to the drug? Many, if not most, people we have tested...

American Biological Medicine™ - A New Healthcare Solution

By Dr. David Jernigan of Hansa Center for Optimum Health   American Biological Medicine is based upon a relatively new philosophy within what is generically termed Alternative Medicine. This new philosophy is called Biological Medicine. Biological Medicine recognizes that all aspects of the body, mind, and spirit must be addressed and brought into optimal integrity before lasting health can be achieved. Unlike other body/mind/spirit philosophies of the healing arts, American Biological Medicine is unique in that it is able to utilize the highly scientific, adjunctive diagnostic and treatment technique, Bio-Resonance Scanning™ (BRS), as well as conventional tests and the ancient healing arts of observation and intuition, to rapidly and accurately determine where interferences exist within the body, mind, or spirit. BRS helps to greatly diminish the educated “guesswork” of doctoring. BRS can be used to flow dynamically, in real-time, from interference-diagnostics to treatment selection and its correct application. The reason...

Medicine-Induced Illness

One of my “All-time” favorite newspaper cartoons pictured a doctor handing a patient a bottle of pills. The caption read, “Take one of these…and if you wake up in the morning, take another!” All humor aside, I want to pass on a medical truth that very few doctors even realize. Every medicine’s primary side-effect is also its primary action! The primary side-effect of an antidepressant is depression and suicidal tendencies. Your insomnia medicine’s primary side-effect is sleeplessness. The same is true for many natural medicines, which is a shocker to many people! The truth is that even if a medicine is perfect for “curing” what is wrong with you, as it is fixing things in the body eventually you reach the point where the correction is complete and you should discontinue the medicine. If you continue the remedy beyond the point of completion you literally go through the correction and...

The Spirit of the Virus

Black death, Plague, Pandemic, Ring around the rosy, 150 million dead, millions more maimed and dying… In the dark ages the Spirit of the Virus was all that existed - a death wind that blew no good. There was no such thing as science; no microscope to give the virus the crystalline form we know today. However, the Spirit of the Virus lives on today and is breathed to life in its gullible victims. It is known by many names, Swine Flu, Avian Flu, H1N1, SARS, Ebola… The masses slurp in every whisper of news about the impending virus and with crazed minds suspecting every tickle in their throat, every cough of their neighbor. Like the shadows of a setting sun the Spirit of the Virus moves across the landscape enveloping all in its path who beckoned it with their fear. The Spirit of the Virus is fueled by fear....

9 Steps to Eating on Purpose

9 Steps to Eating on Purpose
How many times do you just wolf-down your meal in a mad rush to finish before getting back to work? How many times are you eating out of obligation to just eat? How many times do you see undigested food in your stool? Gross, I know! Do you have food allergies? If you answered “Yes” to any of these questons it is likely you need to retrain yourself in how to eat on purpose. Maintain regular and consistent mealtimes. It is better to eat five smaller meals than three large meals. Before eating relax momentarily for 10 seconds, then begin eating. (Blessing your food in prayer – science has shown that this cleans the food, makes it more bio-available, more digestible, and consequently tastes better) Smell each item on your plate before you take your first bite, like sniffing your wine before drinking, which will awaken the taste centers in...

Heavy Metal Toxins

We must change our body’s internal environment, so that it’s not the perfect home for microbes. Heavy metals are hugely responsible for weakening our immune system and setting us up for chronic and repeated infections. A significant portion of my book, Beating Lyme Disease: Living the Good Life in Spite of Lyme, discusses the methods and means to extensive detoxification protocols. What are Heavy Metals? The term ‘heavy metals’ refers to the over-accumulation of many different types of metals in the fat cells, central nervous system (brain, brainstem, spinal cord), bones, glands or hair. Heavy metals may include mercury, iron, lead cadmium, palladium, platinum, arsenic and nickel, to name a few. Common Sources of Heavy Metals 1.  Dental amalgam fillings 2. Cosmetics and antiperspirants with an aluminum base, and mineral powders containing bismuth. 3.  Vaccinations containing mercury or aluminum that are injected into your bloodstream. 4.  Use of conventional household...

It's Not In Your Genes; It's In Your Jeans

Did you ever wonder why you act the way you do, or why you suffer with certain types of illnesses? How you act and the physical symptoms you suffer from may have more to do with your ancestors than with your lifestyle. The theory of epigenetic miasms may explain some of what makes you uniquely prone to the types of problems you experience . This is not “new age” and is not genetic aberrations, but it is more of an epigenetic phenomenon. An Epigenetic miasm, by definition, is a predisposition, or tendency, of certain psychological and physical problems that are set in motion by illnesses in your family history going back seven generations, or acquired within your own lifetime. Epigenetic miasms are due to changes in the expression in genes that are not due to underlying changes in the actual DNA sequences. Epigenetic miasms are not to be confused with...

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Low Body Temperature

In Chronic Fatigue Syndrome there are many theories as to the cause. Some say it is the effects of heavy metal and chemical toxicity. Some say it is chronic infections, while others say it is the side-effects from vaccines and the use of suppressive medicines such as acetaminophen, aspirin, and ibuprofen, still others say it is dysregulated hormones or the effects of emotional trauma. It this author’s opinion everyone is correct in the same way as the proverbial three blind men describing an elephant from the head, tail, and the side are correct in each one’s description but only from his unique vantage point. However, in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome there is one common overriding finding…low body temperature! This article deals primarily with the very predictable problems seen in low body temperature and the profound importance of restoring and maintaining normal core body temperature. This is true not just in Chronic...

Why Detoxifying The Body of Lyme Toxins May Not Be Enough!

Research indicates that the majority of symptoms in Lyme disease are caused by the release of toxins by the spirochetes. If that were not bad enough, for most people in the United States, the daily accumulation of toxins just from living, eating, and breathing is staggering! Environmental toxins from our air, water, personal care products, medications, and food supply are jamming up the machinery of the cells, interfering with the regulation of the body. Toxins are a global problem. There is virtually no one on the planet who does not need to detoxify the body on a continual basis. Every person on the planet should be working to eliminate the sources of toxins in our house and life. Detoxification of the body must be a part of any effective Lyme protocol or one risks permanent damage to nerve and joint tissue from the toxic irritation. Today more than 77,000 chemicals...
