Lyme disease (LD) is an infection caused by Borrelia burgdorferi, a type of bacterium called a spirochete (pronounced spy- ro -keet) that is carried by deer ticks. An infected tick can transmit the spirochete to the humans and animals it bites. Without lyme disease treatment, the bacterium travels through the bloodstream, establishes itself in various body tissues, and can cause a number of symptoms, some of which are severe.
In the mid-1970s, physicians observed clusters of children with arthritis in and around Lyme, Connecticut. Other clinical symptoms and environmental conditions suggested that this was a distinct illness probably transmitted by an arthropod. Researchers linked the presence of EM rash lesions to preceding tick bites. In 1982, spirochetes were identified in the midgut of the adult deer tick, Ixodes dammini (referred herein by its original name, the black-legged tick, Ixodes scapularis) and given the name Borrelia burgdorferi. Finally, conclusive evidence that B. burgdorferi caused Lyme disease came in 1984 when spirochetes were cultured from the blood of patients with EM, from the rash lesion itself, and from the cerebrospinal fluid of a patient with meningoencephalitis and history of prior EM. CDC began surveillance for Lyme disease in 1982 and the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) designated Lyme disease as a nationally notifiable disease in January 1991. See your Dr. for detection of early lyme disease symptoms.
How Does the Immune System fight Lyme Disease?The immune system is a body wide network of cells and organs that has evolved to defend the body against attacks by foreign entities such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses. In the case of Lyme Disease, the immune system is fighting the bacterium spirochet that is the source of the infection. Mesosilver Colloidal Silver supports the immune system as it attempts to kill off these bacterium.
Method of Use: To supplement the immune system take an oral dosage of Mesosilver. Dr. recommended oral dosages range from two or three teaspoons daily up to 3 or 4 tablespoons daily to fortify the immune system

I've been dealing with Lyme Disease on and off for the last 12 years. IIts a wicked condition, and it only takes a year to destroy your joints.
I've done a lot of research on Lyme enough to know what helps and what doesn't. I've successfully gotten the joint pain out of my knees and elbows and Ive got it almost gone from my neck.
I'm planning to write a book or an e-book about all I've learned about Lyme, but in the meantime I did want to say that Mesosilver certainly helps with a number of the symptoms of Lyme disease including:
The Lyme organisms and its co-infections are in the white parts of the body. Thats why the joints are so bad. The red parts of the body the blood system are easier to get to. The white parts like the joints -- are deeper and harder to get to, which is where the organisms hide, but the Mesosilver can get in there.
I'm not suggesting that Mesosilver alone is a cure for Lyme disease. Diet is very important. I highly suggest staying off all things with sugar, even fruit, because the Lyme organisms feed off sugar, and the joint pain and tiredness will get worse. I also use bee pollen, kelp, iodine, iodine with salt, and other things that raise thyroid function because that's a big problem with Lyme disease. Vitamin C is very important. C and salt are the best for the itching and are super effective against Lyme. I recommend Himalayan salt for its mineral content and Celtic salt for the iodine.
An alkaline diet is recommended. Antioxidants are also important. I eat blueberries and red fruits, especially cranberries because they have no sugar. Tomatoes are great too. Tomatoes with salt are red fruit, vitamin and salt. A great combo! The thyroid support is important because the Lyme organisms replicate better at lower temperatures and the thyroid regulates body temp. I also use a light machine. I drink green juices and wheat grass. Its very important to keep moving even if you're tired, move your body, exercise, sweat. Resveratrol (often spelled Reservatol ) is key.
I follow too many protocols to list here, which is why I hope to write a book someday, but I do believe that Mesosilver is one of the things that helps with Lyme disease and its symptoms.

Dear Colloids for Life:
In January, 2003, I assumed the position of Operations Director for a chronic illness facility. While this facility specialized in chronic illnesses of all types, it especially treated severe bacterial and viral infections, a majority of which were Lyme disease. After becoming well oriented in my position, I began to learn of the symptoms manifested by many of our patients who are diagnosed with Lyme's disease. Ironically, many of the symptoms demonstrated by these patients were symptoms that I, myself experienced. Becoming concerned with this discovery, I consulted a staff physician with whom I discussed the possibility that I may have Lyme disease. The physician ordered a test known as CD57, which measures the viability of natural killer cells in the immune system. The test results demonstrated a factor of 52, which deeply concerned me, due to the fact that a factor of 60 or below demonstrates that your immune system has been compromised. I was prescribed doxycycline in ever increasing doses and it appeared that I would remain on it for extended period of time. As doxycycline has some rather unpleasant side effects including avoiding sunshine, I was dissatisfied with process. As I have unlimited access to medical information and medical professionals in most of the disciplines, I was determined to discover an alternative treatment that would be far less restrictive and uncomfortable than doxycycline. As a health care professional for 35 years, I was hesitant to try many of the immune system alternative products that were available.
During a medical convention in the fall of 2003, I discovered silver at a vendor booth and spent time discussing exactly how silver affects the human body. After returning home, I continued my research into silver until I was satisfied that it could provide the same effect or better than doxycycline. I discussed my research with our chronic illness physicians, most of whom supported my decision to begin treatment with silver.
I ordered my first supply of colloidal silver and a physician and I established a dosing regimen. I had decided to have another CD57 in 6 months and in the meantime would monitor my symptoms. Within 3 weeks after beginning my regime, I noticed the stiffness in my neck had been significantly reduced and I truly felt that my mental acuity had improved. At the end of 6 months of treatment on silver, I repeated the CD57 and the results were astonishing. The test showed a natural killer cell factor of 164. The physician with whom I had researched silver and who had monitored my progress during the 6 months immediately decided to begin using silver herself. Within a short time after her beginning her treatment, many of the staff professionals at my facility began ordering silver for themselves and their families. As my wife had been watching my progress, she too began using silver.
During the 5 years that I have been maintained on silver, I have experienced no colds, no flu, and for the most part an illness free existence. My wife has experienced a similar outcome and the physician to whom I referred above, incidentally, is now an Air Force practitioner, and continues to use silver today.
Ironically, chronic illness physicians are hesitant to recommend silver to their patients simply because of the continuing fear of alternative medicine in healthcare. Another factor is a close relationship between physicians and pharmaceutical corporation's which I'm sure take a dim view of treatment with colloidal silver.
Finally, this letter demonstrates my experience and is not a recommendation for anyone to self medicate with traditional or alternative medicine. While I will continue to use colloidal silver as long as it is available, the choice to do this is certainly individual and you should do your own research and be satisfied with those results before starting any self treatment regime.
Best of health to you.Stephen
My journey to healing from Lyme disease was a long one. I became toxic two years ago on Memorial Day 2005. I rode on a parade float, which I later learned had been stored in the woods for a year. It took more than a year to identify what the cause of my illness was; it was finally diagnosed in July of 2006.
I went to my friend at Vitamin Barn, and she gave me everything imaginable to clear it up. Then I had to have a root canal and my dentist said that even my mouth was infected and we couldn’t do the root canal until the infection was cleared up. I went back to Vitamin Barn and she said, let’s put you on colloidal silver. In researching colloidal silver because I was concerned about overdosing, I discovered that it could also treat Lyme disease. I also discovered that the colloidal silver at Vitamin Barn was a good brand, but that Mesosilver was the best available, so my friend and I agreed we should switch to Mesosilver. I also discovered that you can’t overdose on it, which was good to know.
Mesosilver turned out to be the magic bullet. I have felt so much better since I started taking it I have been on it for about a month, and oh my gosh, the difference is remarkable. I am feeling way better. I had been having such bad days; I would go to bed tired and wake up tired. I have learned that when this bacteria mutates, it's vicious. The disease gets in your muscles and gets in your brain. It’s why you’re always tired. It took everything I had to manage my church and maintain some level of enthusiasm and energy. Since I started taking Mesosilver, I don’t have bad days .
I take about a teaspoon five times a day: when I wake up, then mid-morning, then mid-afternoon, then early evening and again at bedtime. It’s the first thing I do when I get up in the morning and the last thing I do before bed at night.
It has been a Godsend. It's taken me so long to find a solution and to be back among the living. I expect to have a total healing from this. Thank you! Reverend Beverly CLa Cañada, CA
I had Lyme disease, which was treated with very aggressive antibiotics that basically destroyed my immune system. I ended up with Epstein-Barr and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). I was tired all the time, draggy, fatigued, and felt like I was in a fog. I also had muscle and joint pain, and got sick all the time. I had tried colloidal silver in the past, with no result. A few months ago, someone convinced me to try Mesosilver. I didn’t realize that there was such a difference in the types of colloidal silver, but apparently, Mesosilver is much more effective than other types. Within two weeks of taking Mesosilver (1 TBS, 4 times a day), I started to feel better. Within a month, I was able to function at about 50% of normal, and within two months, I was pretty much back to normal, and could even exert myself (like mowing the lawn) without getting sick.
The progression of improvement for me was that in the first two weeks I noticed that I was more awake, more alert and had less of that foggy feeling like your head is covered with a paper sack and you are never quite fully awake, even after a good night’s sleep. Within a month, I could engage in physical exertion without getting sick. Prior to Mesosilver, any time I would (literally) break a sweat, I would then end up sick with a sore throat, a cold or flu, or something that would put me in bed for a week. After a month or two of taking Mesosilver, I could do physical things and not get sick. Also, the joint and muscle pain and aches have improved significantly. I’m aware that my immune system is still fragile, and along with taking Mesosilver, I still need to be careful get sufficient sleep and not get stressed, but there is no question that Mesosilver really makes a difference. After really suffering with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, in two months of taking Mesosilver, I’m pretty much back to my normal self. This is a HUGE improvement in my life. - Michael Chattin, Cherry Hill, New Jersey
"Our 8 year old daughter was diagnosed with Lyme Disease after a lengthy and baffling illness. She was put on oral antibiotics for several years with fairly good results (they knocked the symptoms down from 40 to 4 ) but, as soon as she got off of the antibiotics, all the symptoms would return. We heard about Colloidal Silver through a newsletter we subscribed to and decided to give it a try. Within 4 weeks there was a tremendous improvement and not long after that, all symptoms were gone! This was almost 5 years ago, she has just turned 17 and remains symptom free." - Erin
"After a year of treatment with antibiotics for Lyme Disease, my doctor recommended the use of colloidal silver. Daily dosages of colloidal silver over a six month period lessened the Lyme symptoms greatly." - Edward W. Robinson
