AMMONIA: ELIMINATE LYME, MS, ALS, PARKINSON'S AND AUTISM
AMMONIA: ELIMINATE LYME, MS, ALS, PARKINSON'S AND AUTISM
If you have Lyme disease, MS, ALS, Parkinson's, Autism, and many other chronic illnesses...you have ammonia accumulating in your 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 (Bb) production of urease enzyme!
Ammonia is very alkaline at an 11.6 pH. Many doctors have been taught that most sick people have acidic bodies. The reality is not that simple. People may be predominantly acidic, their urine and saliva may be acidic, but they are also extremely alkaline in the areas of ammonia accumulation. Lyme disease is a game changer when it comes to the acid/alkalinity of the body.
This is why many people worsen when they drink alkalinized water, or are given dietary recommendations such as fresh fruits and vegetables which most often work to alkalinize the body. (No, this is not permission to go back to junk food or processed foods that are acid-promoting!) It appears that alkalinizing these people is only aggravating the already over-alkaline ammonia regions of their body, the brain, heart and liver. The ammonia conditions must be cleared before addressing the more acidic regions of their body!

We can extrapolate from the fact that Lyme bacteria seem to thrive in the highly alkaline environment created by ammonia (11.6 pH), that it is not going to work to attempt to kill the bacteria through drinking highly alkaline water, or eating alkaline-promoting diets. Once the Lyme bacteria and ammonia issues are addressed adequately, then yes, an alkaline promoting diet is best.
It is almost impossible to culture Lyme bacteria in a lab setting if the growth medium in the petri dish is not just right, or if the temperature or pH is not just right. So from this we can see that Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb) are not invincible monsters that absolutely cannot be beaten. 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.
Not everything can be done with remedies, especially the longer you have been sick. The longer one has been sick the more skill that will be required to successfully facilitate the body's ability to completely heal.
One must use the correct tool for the job. Diet, full-spectrum infrared sauna therapy, remedies, nutrition, hands on lymphatic treatments, and so much more are needed to optimize the body's ability to bring down the population of bacteria, and eliminate the ammonia.
Most people just want to take some remedies at home and feel better. I understand that, however if you don't feel better it does not mean the remedies are not working, it means there is too much else going on, (such as damaged, inflamed, and irritated tissues) for simply removing the ammonia to correct.
Remember, ammonia is a toxin. We call things toxins because they damage tissues. It is like burning your finger on the stove. You immediately jerk your hand off the flame, but the burn and pain remains. So simply eliminating the ammonia will not always instantly get rid of the symptoms.
Also, until the bacteria are brought under control, they continue to produce more ammonia, so getting rid of the ammonia will be an ongoing process until your body can successfully beat down the Lyme bacteria. To help the body eliminate the cause of the ammonia, the bacteria, I recommend several tinctures from BioPure, in addition to my Ammonia Scavenger.
Although no natural formula is cleared by the FDA to treat or cure any named illness, we can make "structure and function" claims for natural formulations. These formulas are not natural antibiotics. They work to enable the body's own defenses to kill the bacteria...in huge numbers if you read the research.
1. Eliminate the source of ammonia, the bacteria and it’s toxins
2. Eliminate the ammonia, through ammonia-specific supplements
3. Support the organs of elimination
Eliminating the Source of Ammonia, the Bacteria:
I would recommend discussing with your healthcare professional, starting with Ammonia Scavenger at 1-2 tablets, 2-3 times a day, or as they recommend. Depending upon your response you can the ask your healthcare professional about switching over to other binders if you need a change, at the same dosage or as they recommend. I have ad great success with this product for myself and my clients.
No matter what way you choose to enable the killing of the Lyme bacteria, conventional antibiotics, or natural remedies, you definitely need to deal with the toxic ammonia. As I have discussed, most medicines and remedies will not cross the blood-brain-barrier (BBB), however many of my recommendations do cross the BBB; especially Specific tinctures and ‘liposomal’ products.
Eliminating the Ammonia:
I have traveled to Brazil to search for botanicals from the Amazon that might effectively clear ammonia from the body. I have tested alongside medicine-men in Africa. I have been to huge plant specimen repositories, and tested large collections of medicinal substances from the world of Chinese medicine, not to mention testing everything I can get my hands on from standard botanical and homeopathic arsenals. There are only two botanicals out of everything I have tested that consistently work and have been verified either by laboratory experiments or by Functional Acuity Contrast Testing (FACT) of the toxins interference in the brain.
When your healthcare professional finds ammonia is not just in the typical Lyme presentation of the liver, heart, brain, and jaws, but is found all over the body, such as is the case with almost all MS and ALS sufferers, then I would suggest using L-Ornithine/L-Aspertate, which used to be a German prescription drug called Hepamertz, that was used for the same purpose of helping reduce the ammonia seen in severe liver diseases. It is now available as a supplement.
Support the Organs of Elimination:
If one studied all the various supplements that support the detoxification and elimination organs it would rapidly be clear that you could spend hundreds of dollars on many different types of products. I have found that there are several excellent products I recommend, depending on the client’s individual body’s history and terrain:
1. PHP Ammonia Scavenger, $46.00
2. BioPure’s Zeobind, $55.00
3. Cellcore’s Biotoxin Binder, $70.00
4. Pectasol Modified Citrus Pectin, 454g, $116.00

Excess ammonia can be produced in the body when there is poor protein digestion, upregulation of the transsulfuration pathway and dysfunction in the urea cycle. High ammonia can cause a myriad of health issues. If the urea cycle does not adequately clear ammonia, BH4 is used, and as a result, potentially reducing serotonin and dopamine, and causing more inflammation. High ammonia can be a result of MTHFR, MTR, MTRR, BHMT, PEMT and CBS variants, as well as intestinal dysbiosis. This product is designed to soak up ammonia and support the urea cycle. Additional methods to reduce ammonia would be digestion support.
BioPure ZeoBind ® supports the body’s detoxification functions. BioPure ZeoBind ® is made from a naturally occurring mineral known as clinoptilolite, which is a particular type of crystalline aluminosilicate in a family of compounds known as zeolites. Clinoptilolite is formed when volcanic molten lava comes in contact with seawater. The result is a 3-dimensional honeycomb-like molecular structure with a negative charge that is unique among minerals in nature. Positively charged substances are attracted to clinoptilolite’s negative charge. An ion-exchange is readily performed and the substances can essentially become captive within the porous, sieve-like architecture of BioPure ZeoBind ® .
WARNING: This product may expose you to chemicals including lead, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information research Prop 65.

Exercise or Rebounder: Rebounding is great for the lymphatics, especially if you can’t get to a lymphatic therapist. Try and do it for at least 20 minutes a day. Not only does it get those endorphins going, which will be good for your brain, but it will also be an excellent way to get your lymphatic system moving, too! It makes a huge difference in how you feel and in getting the toxins out of your body and put oxygen in! After rebounding, do some ‘dry brushing’ and then an ‘Epsom salt bath’ for at least 20 minutes (if possible.) This is a gentle form of detoxification.
Castor Oil Packs: Best to do them 4-5 nights a week and especially the night before a coffee enema really makes a difference.
How to dry brush overview:
1. Begin with your feet and brush vigorously in circular motions.
2. Continue brushing up your legs.
3. Proceed to your hands and arms.
4. Brush your entire back and abdomen area, shoulders and neck.
5. Use circular counter-clockwise strokes on the abdomen.
6. Lightly brush the breasts.
Infrared Saunas: Infrared Saunas are FABULOUS for many reasons. It will help you detox and sweat out many toxins and heavy metals. It improves circulation and repairs processes, i.e., mitochondria produce more ATP when infrared rays are introduced. It causes the release of nitric oxide. (You might remember, you may have some NOS snps.) This stimulates vasodilatation of the microcirculatory system, bringing more blood to the muscles!

If your primary symptoms are not severe brain issues, such as seen in MS, Parkinson's, or ALS then you definitely want to invest in a Full-Spectrum Infrared Sauna for your personal use. Virtually no other device can "sour the milk", and shift the internal environment of your body than one of these saunas! Lyme bacteria cause the body to overcool. People with chronic LD often report that their body temperature is very low. If you are ever 96.5 or below, you are in real trouble and need to take this seriously. Every system of the body is energetically "working on fumes" and getting more toxic by the day as the body fluids, such as the lymph fluid, turn into a gel.
There is a new way to do sauna therapy that quadruples its healing effects. The Sunlighten Saunas now have the options for Acoustic Resonance Therapy, Chromotherapy, Full-spectrum Infrared waves, 6-preset wellness programs, and a proprietary cream that enhances sweating in those tough to sweat areas! These saunas are a long way from the boring saunas of old. They even offer a biofeedback option! These saunas are made for people with extreme sensitivities.
