Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi (B. burgdorferi). Certain ticks may carry these bacteria if they bite mice or deer that are infected with the disease. You can get the disease if an infected tick bites you.
The parts of the United States where the chance of getting Lyme disease is higher include:
• New England
• The mid-Atlantic states
• The north-central states
Note: Deer ticks can be so small that they are almost impossible to see. Unlike a mosquito bite, a tick bite cannot be felt so, many people do not even know that they have been bitten. In most cases, the tick must stay on the body for 48 hours to transmit the bacteria to humans.
Tests & diagnosis
There is a blood test that will check for antibodies to the bacteria that cause Lyme disease. The most common one is called the ELISA for Lyme disease test. A Western blot test is done to confirm ELISA results.
Since the tests are usually not accurate in the first few weeks after the tick bite, it may not come up positive if given early in its progression.
An alternative test would be a skin biopsy which can sometimes identify the Lyme disease bacteria.
Not everyone infected with these bacteria gets ill. If a person does become ill, the first symptoms resemble the flu and include:
• Muscle pain
There may be a "bulls eye" rash, a flat or slightly raised red spot at the site of the tick bite. Often there is a clear area in the center. It can be larger than 1 - 3 inches wide.
Symptoms in people with the later stages of the disease include:
• Body-wide itching
• Joint inflammation
• Stiff neck
• Unusual or strange behavior
Everyone who has been bitten by a tick should be watched closely for at least 30 days. Antibiotics are the usual treatment.
if you go this route, make sure to take Probiotics right along with this treatment and continue to take Probiotics afterwards.

Optimal C may well prove to be a remarkable breakthrough for improving human health and longevity. It is a frequency enhanced elixir instructing the body to make vitamin C. Humans have not been able to make vitamin C, as most mammals do, because the gene turning on production of the gulonolactone oxidase enzyme is missing. This enzyme is needed to make vitamin C from glucose in the liver.
We have found that elixirs do a very good job of telling the body to make specific enzymes. Consequently, the instructions in Optimal C will be able to take the place of this gene as they tell the body to turn on L-gulonolactone oxidase production. This will enable the body to produce optimal levels of vitamin C.
Mammals that can make their own vitamin C produce massive amounts of it compared to what we get in our modern diet. For example, a 150 pound goat, when unstressed, produces 13,000 mg of vitamin C a day, and when stressed, can produce up to 13 times more, approximately 170,000 mg a day.
Researchers say that the ability to produce vitamin C may be the underlying reason animals can live a healthy life through old age if give half a chance. Optimal C will stimulate your body to produce similar quantities of vitamin C appropriate to your weight. Creating extremely high levels of the most optimal form of vitamin C or ascorbic acid there is, the kind the body makes. Being able to turn on natural vitamin C production in the body makes Optimal C the most valuable supplement there is to prevent disease, to achieve optimal health and to increase longevity.
Depending on how much support your body needs, use 2 to 6 bottles a month of Optimal C for at least 2 months. Then cut down to using 1 or 2 bottles a month. As we do not have this gene, continue using Optimal C to maintain these high levels or your vitamin C levels will rapidly reduce.
Ingredients: The base of all the elixirs is: Purified spring water, organic orange and rosemary essential oils.
The oils help the sets of vibrational frequency instructions encoded in the water work more effectively. The technology used to make these elixirs creates a stable concentrated energy that transfers instructions to your body.

Some practitioners say that if you get your immune system working well, it can handle lyme’s. This combination significantly boosts the immune system’s ability to kill pathogens of all types.
Optimal Immune 1 is an immune boosting supplement herbal formula designed to work together with oil-based Optimal Immune 2 to provide the most powerful immune enhancing supplement combination we have yet offered. These two supplements test so strong, we are replacing Immune Force with them in our supplement line.
Optimal Immune 2 alone is as powerful as Immune Force and the addition of Optimal Immune 1 in situations were the immune system can be boosted significantly enhances it's ability to deal with unwanted cells and infections.
Optimal Immune 1 is built around four medicinal mushrooms known for their immune system boosting capabilities, and a proprietary formulation of nine important herbal extracts.
These herbs work together to both kill nonfunctioning cells, and to improve the function of the brain. This improvement enables the brain to better direct and control the immune system response against unwanted cells, pathogens and toxins. And of course helps to improve overall health, especially with the additional liver support, free radical scavenging and anti-inflammatory benefits of the herbs. In our energetic testing Optimal Immune 1 gives a 55% increase in the ability of Optimal Immune 2 to boost the immune system response. 90 caps
Ingredients per each 3 capsule serving:
Medicinal mushrooms: Organic U.S. grown Reishi, Cordyceps Sinensis, Turkey Tail and Mitake.
Herbs: Astragulus 4:1, Burdock Root 4;1, Turmeric Extract, Green Tea Extract, Mangosteen Extract, Bacopa Extract, Gymnema Extract, Mulehi Extract, Garcina Cambogia Extract, Guggul Extract, Colesus Extract, Piperine.
Optimal Immune 2 is our replacement for Immune Force. The ingredients in it supply approximately an equal amount of immune system enhancing and hormone system support compared to Immune Force. They supply considerably more support for brain and liver function, and have a greater anti-inflammatory effect. Add on Optimal Immune 1 herbal formula and the immune boosting effect considerably surpasses Immune Force.
Increased depths of healing can occur when the liver and brain are also supported in an immune supplement. The liver and brain work together intimately, the liver supplying nutrients to the brain, and driving brain function to a greater degree than you may think. The brain controls the immune system, so improving function of the brain improves immune system response too.
Optimal Immune 2 is a pleasant tasting oil-based formula that is emulsified in a new breakthrough process to significantly increase absorption of the herbs, liquid chlorophyll and structured water mixed in it. Use 1.75 teaspoons once or twice a day. If you do not have to worry about swelling and inflammation causing significant problems, take three capsules of Optimal Immune 1 with each serving of Optimal Immune 2. There will be considerably more immune system and brain support.
Optimal Immune 2's most important action is to enhance immune system function. It does so in two ways. All the oils in it work to calm down the inflammatory response of the immune system. In addition the herbs in it, Ashwagandha, Green Tea Extract and Turmeric help reduce inflammation.
Black Cumin Seed Oil is a power immune system strengthener. It and all the other emulsified oils carry other immune enhancing components into cells as they create a liposomal delivery system.
Cordyceps and Colorius are an equally powerful immune boosting duo. Not quite as powerful, Ashwagandha and Turmeric also boost immune system response, and the specially processed Structured Water used in it has a 25 year history of improving immune response.
Optimal Immune 2's next most valuable benefit is to enhance brain function. This also helps the immune system work better as the brain will then do a better job of directing and controlling the immune system.
It's most valuable brain support nutrients are Phosphatidylcholine and Phosphatidylserine and ProCoQ10. The group of Chia Seed Oil, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil and Lecithin supply the right ratio of Omega 6 and Omega 3 to the brain and other brain nutrients. Equally valuable as these oils are the Liquid Chlorophyll and Structured Water as they help get more oxygen into brain cells. Ashwagandha, Green Tea Extract and Turmeric help clear pathways in the brain, and reduce brain inflammation.
The liver is also supported significantly in Optimal Immune 2. Liquid Chlorophyll and the Structured Water are powerful liver detoxifiers. They grab hold of toxins and carry them out to be eliminated by the kidneys.
Structured Water, Green Tea Extract, Turmeric and ProCoQ10 remove free radicals from the liver which improves the liver's ability to detoxify. And Ashwagandha, Green Tea Extract and Turmeric clear pathways in the liver as they do the brain.
Evening Primrose Oil enhances hormonal function. A strong hormonal system makes for a strong immune system, so this benefit, while small in the whole context of Optimal Immune 2, is significant.

Liver Detox Pathways elixir contains instructions to optimize the function of the detox pathways in the liver. The focus is on upgrading or down-regulating the Phase 1 detox pathways that pull toxins from the blood to be removed by the liver.
If more toxins are removed by the Phase 1 pathways than the Phase 2 detox pathways can handle, those toxins can damage the liver. Plus they remain in the body, poisoning it. This is very common.
There are various Phase 2 detox pathways that handle different types of toxins. The Liver Detox Pathways Elixir instructs the body to improve the function of each of these pathways, to make more of the enzymes needed for these pathways to function properly, so that your liver can remove toxins from the body as it is supposed to do so.

2 bottles metOH a month for 4 months
MetOH is the newest version of phenOH, same great formula with improved packaging and an added herbal blend. It is a Mitochondrial Energy Tonic as fundamentally it will increase the ability of the mitochondria in cells to produce energy by getting more oxygen into cells for the mitochondria to use.
MetOH is a frequency enhanced OH water concentrate that works to remove uric and lactic acid along with other toxins from the body. The unique technology used to make the elixirs, is also used to infuse specific energetic frequencies into metOH that help it to better deal with pathogens, unwanted compromised cells, and to more effectively detox the body than OH water alone would do.
Science tells us that disease cannot thrive in a low acid, toxin-free environment. Unfortunately, there is now unprecedented acid buildup due to fast-paced, stressful lifestyles, toxins in the air and food, and the abundance of acid-producing foods and drinks such as meat, coffee, tea, soda and sugars. As a consequence, this acidity causes cellular oxygen levels to be at an all-time low, causing vast numbers of disease and ill-health as it reduces the ability of the mitochondria to produce energy.
Unlike alkaline water from machines, or any other alkaline water, MetOH actually seeks out and removes hydrogen containing acids from the body. Removing these acids is the key to health. The water in MetOH has had one hydrogen atom removed using a double-patented process, thereby turning H2O into OH water.
When you drink diluted metOH, it starts looking for hydrogen molecules, which are found in acids and toxins. Finding one, it becomes H2O again, pulling acidity from the body as it binds with hydrogen. The body gets rid of the hydrogen molecules as it does all water, through the urine. You will literally urinate the acidity out of your body.
Nothing else we have tested removes acids and toxins so effectively. When acids and toxins are removed by metOH, your body will oxygenate much better. metOH then becomes one of the best oxygenation supplements we supply. This oxygenation will heal your cells, kill pathogens and improve the overall health in your body. You’ll have more energy, which is why we call it a Mitochondrial Energy Tonic.
MetOH is a concentrate you mix with water. Distilled is best, but a good filtered water with no added minerals will be almost as good.
We are electronic beings. With every glass of mixed MetOH, there are trillions of oxygen atoms with free electrons looking to bind up a hydrogen atom. Once bound, they safely remove the acid connected to it from your body. MetOH can help you gain energy, lose excess weight, speed recovery, decrease soreness, detoxify, boost the immune system, the list goes on.
The herbs in MetOH enable it to better increase Mitochondrial Energy production and overall cellular function. They increase the overall effectiveness of metOH by 20% in our testing. A substantial jump in effectiveness with no increase in pricing.
32 oz. Bottle Ingredients: OH water concentrate Proprietary blend of the following herbal extracts:
Yarrow, Hyssop, Red Clover blossom, Burdock, Comfrey, Uva Ursi
for 6 months
Body and Skin Renewal is a frequency enhanced elixir that instructs every cell in your body to become, when it replicates, younger and healthier. Your cells are told to replicate without continuing disease and dysfunction patterns. Instructions focus on activating a youth template during replication of what the ideal cell would be. Instructions tell the every replicating cell to follow this template in order to replicate as a healthier and slightly younger cell. Something like this happens during a spontaneous healing.
When your cells replicate in this manner, there can be profound healing and anti-aging effects. Skin cells replicate fairly quickly, every 10 to 30 days, so you may notice improvement in your skin within a month or even less. Accelerated healing and repair may be noticed in other rapidly replicating cells including your intestinal wall, blood cells, immune cells, lungs and stomach lining. So while you may see improvement in your skin first, know that your body is becoming healthier and younger on the inside too.
2 oz. Dropper bottle. Purified water, essential oil blend, proprietary blend.
Ingredients: The base of all the elixirs is purified spring water, organic orange and rosemary essential oils.

Glutathione is your body's primary cellular detoxifier and antioxidant. Your liver uses it too but depleted levels always occur with chronic ill health situations.
Glutathione is an amino acid and is available in vitamins. Unfortunately, free glutathione as a supplement is not absorbed by your cells. Whether you take it in pill form or via injections, almost none gets into your cells or the liver. For years health practitioners have tried to come up with a way to get glutathione into cells. The only solution available before Glutathione Specialist, was to consume undenatured whey protein like ImmunoPro or RenewPro. The amino acids in this type of whey can be used by the body to make glutathione. However, this process works slowly and requires that you be able to properly digest the proteins.
In Glutathione Specialist, the glutathione is hidden inside healthy fat molecules that the cells love to consume. Consequently, glutathione gets pulled inside the cells without being broken down, where it can do its work of neutralizing toxins. I consider it a real breakthrough in detoxification, for any situation where toxins must be eliminated from the cells. Using Glutathione Specialist, you can more rapidly and effectively detoxify your cells then you can with any other product.
Ingredients: Essential phospholipids 1500 mg, reduced glutathione 500 mg, methylcoboamine (B12) 1 mg, folinic acid 800 mcg.Other ingredients: Water, lecithin, alcohol 12%, natural flavor. 30 ml.

A lack of vitamin D, a nutrient that is generated primarily through exposure to sunlight, helps boost the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Experts estimate that up to half of adults and 30 percent of children and teenagers in the United States are vitamin D-deficient. There is a wide array of studies linking increased cardiovascular risk with vitamin D deficiency. For example, recent data from the long-running Framingham Heart Study indicated that someone with vitamin D levels below 15 nanograms per milliliter of blood is twice as likely to suffer a heart attack, stroke or other cardiovascular problem within two years compared to those with higher levels.
Vitamin D is well known as the "sunshine vitamin" because human skin makes the nutrient upon exposure to sunlight. However, most people living north of the deep south USA are not exposed to enough sunlight to keep Vitamin D levels optimum.
Emulsified vitamin D is the most absorbable vitamin D 3 supplement. It is also the very best value and easy to take. Each bottle contains 750 drops, and each drop supplies 2000 IU of vitamin D. One drop a day is suggested. Some health professionals suggest taking 4000 or more IU a day to correct deficiencies. Vitamin D has been used to prevent and treat serious diseases. It is essential to help maintain bone density. Insufficient vitamin D has been shown to play a role in the development of MS, rheumatoid arthritis and other ill health situations.
Ingredients: Vitamin D 3 (as cholecalciferol) 2,000 IU 500% RDA Other Ingredients: Water and acacia emulsifier base and sesame oil. 1 fluid ounce
