Lime Disease
Tiny deer ticks infected with a spiral-shaped bacterium or spirochete (which is named Borrelia burgdorferi) are responsible for the outbreak of arthritis in Lyme. Ordinary "wood ticks" and "dog ticks" do not carry the infection.

Research on Lyme disease and its' relative, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, has found that a small bacteria is transmitted through the bite of a tick into the host's bloodstream, producing over time a bewildering array of serious symptoms. 

In addition to causing arthritis, Lyme disease can also cause heart, brain, and nerve problems.

Prompt medical diagnosis and intervention with antibiotics is necessary. 

SPK Formula (old name Spiro Kete) by Hanna Kroeger - Holistic naturopathic healer, suggest that additional support for the body's eliminative processes may also be beneficial.  Folk herbalists have long used nettles for its' general detoxifying effects deriving from a high concentration of chlorophyll and to maintain good metabolism.  Yerba santa is native to California and Northern Mexico, where it is historically used as a bitter tonic.  According to traditional folk literature, goldenrod and yerba santa share similar properiies with nettles in supporting healthy urinary and joint function as well as strengthening the body's natural resistance.  Physicians specializing in environmental illness employ monolaurin to support natural resistance in those who are chronically run down.  Tobacco is popularly known as a larvacide.

Dr Christopher's Kidney Formula

Paramount to good care of the kidneys is  reducing the toxic load they have to deal with, especially proteins and chemical contaminants which can build up in the kidneys, slowing their function, increasing acidity and raising blood pressure. So, consider lightening the diet--instead of eating meat every day, try going vegetarian for a day or so a week. A vegetable/fruit-based diet allows the body system to alkalinize via the kidneys, lowering blood pressure, and contributing to a sense of well-being. Also, drinking enough water so that the urine is a light color of yellow. A whole lot of water is not necessarily good for the kidneys, and it is always better to drink small amounts of water throughout the day, rather than gulping down a quart or two because you're thirsty. This just creates kidney stress.

The regular use of a kidney cleansing and rebuilding formula is now mandatory especially if you are taking pharmisutical drugs and considering the stresses we put our kidneys under thanks to our “modern” lifestyles. A good kidney formula will include most of the following properties and ingredients.

What the formula needs to do

  1. Anti-lithic (stone breaking)
  2. Diuretic (water removing)
  3. Antiseptic (infection killing)
  4. Anti-nephrotoxic and anti-hepatotoxic
  5. Soothing to urinary tract tissue -
  6. Anti-inflammatory Juniper
  7. Stimulating to renal tissue

This formula is specific for the kidneys. Approximately 80% of the body is liquid, and much of this fluid must be pumped, filtered, etc., through the urinary system. Dr. Christopher developed Kidney Formula for the kidneys and bladder. As a base he used two of the most effective and fastest-acting natural diuretics­ juniper berries and parsley. Juniper also corrects problems in voiding urine, and parsley is one of the best-known herbs for rebuilding urinary tissues. One woman in Chicago lay dying with edema. After only four days of parsley tea and parsley fomentations, she was healed. To those two herbs, he added ginger root, to help the herbs work together; uva ursi leaves which dissolve kidney stones and other inorganic calcification; marshmallow root which acts as a soothing and healing emollient to ease the flow of urine; cramp bark which relives spasms; and golden seal root which kills infection and heals tissues. Numerous patients who took this formula were able to overcome incontinence and chronic urinary tract conditions. 

A note on stones

Different stones in the body have different chemical make-ups.

For example, gallstones are primarily formed from cholesterol, bile salts, and proteins. The more protein, the harder the stones. Think of it like the protein used to make fingernails. Incidentally, this protein primarily comes from the lining of the gallbladder. In other words, although stones get their start in the liver, they turn problematic in the gallbladder – which is why removing the gallbladder gets rid of symptoms, but not necessarily the underlying problem, which starts in the liver.

Pancreatic stones are formed from fatty acids, calcium, and proteins.

And kidney stones themselves vary significantly. There are four types.

  • Calcium stones are composed of calcium that is chemically bound to oxalate (calcium oxalate) or phosphate (calcium phosphate).
  • Uric acid stones. If the acid level in the urine is high or too much acid is excreted, the uric acid may not dissolve and uric acid stones may form.
    Struvite or infection stones develop when a urinary tract infection alters the chemical balance of the urine causing stones to form from ammonium, magnesium, phosphate (aka struvite).
  • Cysteine stones. Some people inherit a rare condition that results in large amounts of cystine in the urine, which causes the formation of cystine stones that are difficult to treat.

The important thing to understand is that although all of the above types of stones have different chemical compositions, most of them can be dissolved by the right combination of herbs in a single formula. Dr Christopher's Kidney Formula.

Deficiencies in magnesium and vitamin B6 may also lead to calcium oxalate stones. Several studies have shown that doses of magnesium and vitamin B6 can prevent stones in many people who previously had them. Several other supplements may also be prescribed, including vitamin K, or vitamin D with vitamin K.

Hydrangea, and yellow dock can also help break up stones.

Several studies have found Essential Oil Blends to be more effective than any single oil alone
A blend of oils is often more effective than using any single oil alone. Some oils, when combined, complement and enhance each other to create a “synergy” with with one another. Even more importantly, I would recommend that you only use an oil blend that was put together professionally because the order in which the oils are added as well as the amount is critical. The frequencies of each oil act separately as well as in a symphonic manner. As such, a single drop of a blended oil with 8 different oils making it up, it will work much better than 8 drops of 8 different oils.
3 in 1  This blend was given to me by a Naturopathic doctor when my daughter came down with 'strep' throat about 20 years ago. We also used it on my Granddaughter who used to run barefoot through the animal pens and broke out with 5 or 6 different pathogens on her feet, legs, arms and hands. Primary Children's hospital diagnosed them. She screamed and cried whenever any other medications were applied. She giggled and said it tickled as we applied this and the sores and problems were half gone the next day and it took less than a week for them to heal completely. An excellent blend for Strep, bacteria, viruses, etc.
Alert This blend may help with memory retention and mental alertness; it may even help oxygenate the brain. One may study with this blend and then smell it during the test to help recall what was studied. May be used as a stimulant for low energy and may keep one from going into shock.

Testimonies of Dr. Christopher's Formulas;

Complete Tissue has been known to heal wounds, even surgical incisions that have failed to heal. One California woman had an abdominal surgical wound that had been draining for more than three years. She applied the ointment to the wound and took the capsules internally. Within seven days, the wound was entirely healed.

Blood Circulation Formula, (BPE) 
During his time at the dispensary, Ray started his personal search for an herb that could relieve his own serious health problem, high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries, which he had suffered since adolescence. He began working with cayenne, which is high in calcium and vitamin C. He found that cayenne is one of the best remedies for the heart. He saw that it restores and retains the elasticity of the blood vessels, correcting or preventing hardening of the arteries and preserving the health of the circulatory system. Ray also found that cayenne equalized blood circulation and brought blood pressure to normal. He even found that cayenne was powerful enough to stop a heart attack in progress. In later years, carrying cayenne in his herbal doctor's bag, he never lost a person to a heart attack. He remembered one woman who had suffered from heart problems for eighteen years. She had taken powerful heart medication for more than seven years. After starting cayenne , she was able to stop this medication within months. Her varicose veins also completely cleared.

Bloodstream Formula, a purifying formula of red clover blossoms, chaparral, licorice root, peach bark, Oregon grape or barberry root bark, poke, and stillingia or echinacea, cascara sagrada bark, sarsaparilla root, prickly ash bark, burdock root, and buckthorn bark. Ray chose each ingredient carefully, after much herbal study about each herb's characteristics.  One of the most dramatic cases was a forty-five-year-old man who had developed severe sepsis throughout his system. He had lost his hair and fingernails. His eyes were ulcerated and he had even developed some of the symptoms of leprosy. He had lost so much weight that he looked like a skeleton. Ray gave him the Red Clover Combination, together with nutritional guidelines, and within six weeks he had regained weight and had no signs of infection.

Ray treated a man who had slipped at work and drove a chisel deep into his palm. The man couldn't afford to take time off, nor to pay any doctors' fees, so he wrapped the hand with a dirty rag and finished his day's work. He even worked for a few additional days. By the time he arrived at Ray's office, his hand was swollen and hot and a red streak ran from the badly infected hand up the arm. A painful lump the size of a baseball in his armpit prevented the man from dropping his arm to his side. The man was frantic with pain and fear. Ray asked him why he hadn't sought medical treatment when the condition became so severe, but the man was afraid that his arm would have been amputated. Ray taught him how to dig up plantain plants, wash and crush them, put them on the wound and bandage them in place. He was to add fresh herb to the poultice every time it dried out. He was also to drink at least three cups a day of the tea. The man wanted to come back for a checkup, but Ray assured him that he would be healed completely by the next day.  The man did return in three days, but only to report what seemed to him a miracle. On the first day, the red streak had disappeared within a few hours and the swelling in the armpit had reduced. By evening, the wound was much better, and within a day or two, the condition was completely healed. The man had full use of his hand and arm and was able to earn a living for his family.

Candida Cleanse
by Dr. Christopher's
    After many requests by people searching for a convenient way to rid themselves of yeast, Dr. Christopher's School of Natural Healing has come out with more information on Candida along with a cleanse - Intestinal Sweep. Available February 7, 2011.
    Most alternative therapies focus on killing off the yeast and providing the body with probiotics. These therapies fail to correct the damaged intestinal tract which allows the yeast condition to return.  Soothing Digestion was designed to coat, sooth and heal the lesions in the intestinal wall. Another vital component of the Candida Cleanse is the Lower Bowel as it allows the body to eliminate the yeast.

Pull toxins from the body, stimulate the Immune System,  absorb and bind Pathogens and Viruses

Clay has been used for centuries both internally and externally. Clay is rich in minerals including iron, magnesium, calcium, potassium, sulfur, manganese, and silica as well as trace minerals.  Life would not exist without minerals.  They are so important to our health that we can tolerate a deficiency in vitamins longer than a deficiency in minerals.

Not any clay should be consumed.  Edible clays are called Bentonite or Montmorillonite which are also known as Calcium Bentonite Clay.  The calcium-based clays are often referred to as “living clays”.  They were formed from volcanic activity millions of years ago.

It is one of the most effective natural intestinal detoxifying agents available. It works in the body much like a sponge by attracting and absorbing toxins before being eliminated by the body. Many people reported that after using Bentonite for a two to four week period they experienced improved intestinal regularity, relief from chronic constipation, indigestion and diarrhea. They also had increased physical energy, clearer complexion, brighter eyes, increased resistance to infections, enhanced emotional state, and improved tissues and gums. Bentonite clay is an alkaline substance. When ingested, the clay neutralizes the body's acidity, reducing heartburn and stomach ulcers.

Benefits of Clay

Clay can pull toxins from the body, stimulate the immune system,  absorb and bind pathogens, viruses, pesticides and herbicides in addition to numerous other functions.   It seems that clay can also help remove radioactive particles from the body. 

Here are some more benefits clay users have reported:

·         Joint and muscle pain relief

·         Detoxification of toxins

·         Bite and Sting irritation reduction

·         Reduction of blood pressure and cholesterol

·         Candida control

·         Gas/bloating relief

·         Burns lessening

·         Parasite removal

·         Digestive problems such as heartburn and indigestion improving

·         Heavy metal removal

·         Alkalizing the body

·         Constipation relief

To make a detox mixture at home, you will need bentonite clay and psyllium husk. Bentonite is an important ingredient in detox or colon cleanses, since it absorbs toxins from the intestines and helps to clean out excess waste found throughout the digestive tract.

To make the mixture, combine 1 teaspoon of bentonite clay powder and 1 teaspoon of psyllium husk in an 8-ounce glass of water. Shake the mixture and drink at least two hours before a meal on an empty stomach for best results. Once you have had the bentonite detox cleanser, drink an additional glass of water to flush out the system.

To make a detox Bentonite clay bath - requires 1 to 2 cups of powdered Bentonite clay to be whisked into warm or hot bath water until the clay powder is completely dissolved. I add a few drops of my favorite Essential oil as well. My favorite  is Eucalyptus.

Once you have the Bentonite clay dissolved in your warm bath water and added your favorite essential oil, it is time to immerse yourself into the bath with only your head out of the water. To keep the water warm, you can reduce the faucet to a trickle of hot water through the duration of the bath. You should relax in your detox Bentonite clay bath for 15 to 20 minutes.

Do not stay longer than 20 minutes, as you may develop a cleansing reaction. Though a detox Bentonite clay bath is a relaxing experience, it can be taxing on your body if you overdo it. Side effects of staying too long in your detox clay bath are muscle soreness, extreme fatigue and headache.

After your detox Bentonite clay bath, you will need to scoop out as much of the Bentonite clay residue and metals from your body out of the tub before draining the water. After draining the water, you should give the tub a good cleaning. Bentonite clay also has practical plumbing uses as a sealant and can severely harm your pipes and drains if not cleaned from your tub.
