New and Exciting Lyme Disease Research
By Lyn Hanshew, M.D.
Some of the most ill people I have tried to help have been diagnosed with Lyme disease. Conventionally, the diagnostic and treatment options are not good. Serological testing has been disappointing and confusing.
The difficulties with long-term antibiotic protocols include the expense, lack of insurance coverage, side-effects, potential for development of resistance and lack of studies demonstrating efficacy.
Countless people needlessly suffer from Lyme disease. After years of research I now present what I believe to be the most effective solution offered today.
ACS 200 Extra Strength Kills Borrelia Burgdorferi
Due to the obvious and desperate need for an effective anti-Borrelia agent and that Advanced Cellular Silver (ACS) 200 by Results RNA in previous studies has been proven to be a safe and effective anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal agent, the following independent studies were conducted.
Independent studies generated the following kill-time data using ACS 200 against Borrelia burgdorferi, the etiological agent of Lyme disease. The kill-time studies used loss of motility of the spirochetes as the kill criteria as observed via dark field microscopy. It is important to know that the Borrelia burgdorferi kill-time protocol used for this test was originated by Dr. William Burgdorfer.
380,000,000 Borrelia Burgdorferi Organisms Killed in 8 Minutes
Mean number of motile organisms: 130/field
The estimated volume of 1 field is approximately 3.4 x 106 ml. Therefore, the starting concentration of the Borrelia burgdorferi culture was approximately 3.8 x 107 (380,000,000) organisms/ml.
After years of extensive research, ACS 200 has now been shown to achieve complete kill against Borrelia burgdorferi in only 8 minutes. These test results represent a significant feat as the Lyme disease associated microorganism is extremely difficult to culture, test and kill.
Most of the Borrelia burgdorferi motility ceased after about 4 minutes of exposure to the ACS 200 solution. No motility was observed after 8 minutes of exposure.
Dr. Burgdorfer described similar in vitro testing results using a silver preparation. He surmised that silver disables the enzyme(s) used by bacterial, fungal and viral agents for their oxygen metabolism causing them to suffocate upon contact. There have been reports of elimination of late-stage Lyme symptoms using ACS 200.
This data provides the scientific basis for using ACS 200 as an effective anti-Borrelia agent. In the clinical setting, many practitioners currently prescribe ACS 200 to their Lyme patients with excellent outcomes. Adding Advanced Cellular Zeolite (ACZ) nano to reduce toxic body burden is a very powerful adjunct to the ACS 200 protocol. When taken together, these two products are highly effective in broad treatment.
