Biofilms. If you don’t know what they are you will never get better

I saw a post on Facebook today in a Lyme community, It was from someone that had just read something about biofilms and wondered if they existed. This is a terrifying question from a chronic Lyme sufferer because if they are not being treated for them they will never get better.

Here are some essential links with info on Lyme Biofilms:

Hello Dr Ross, first may I say you have saved my life (not an over statement). I was wondering when someone has been dealing with chronic yeast before and during Lyme treatment do you see this as being a continuing problem after treatment is finished, and does someone remain susceptible? Also how do you feel about supplementing with essential oils?

I apologize for the delay in my response. I was away for the last week.

Rarely does chronic yeast overgrowth remain a problem after the treatment with Lyme by antibiotics is completed. Regarding the oils, I find them helpful at treating yeast, however I do not find them useful in treating Lyme.

In Health,

Marty Ross MD

Diet For Autoimmune Diseases Published Study


I had to share this post thanks to Paleo Mom. It is a study on the effects of a Paleo Autoimmune Protocol for patients with autoimmune diseases. I follow a pretty strict elimination diet that falls into this category.


Another Day, Still Tired

Image                               Quick check in for the beginning of this week.

Well here it is another night and I am in bed by 9pm. Not sleeping yet but I usually spend several hours every night quietly in my room in front of the tv and laptop. Whether or not I have had a busy day I seem to end up tired at the end of the day, so here I am.

As far as energy I seem to be at my best late morning to early evening, before and after that I’m pretty tired. I am curious, a question for you Lymies out there: what are your energy peaks and flows? What helps? What makes it worse?

I know keeping my body super clean food-wise helps but it’s not the only answer. I live in a delicate balance with my persnickety little liver and those genetic detox inhibitors as well beyond just the Lyme. Kind of stinks that, say, something like a little touch of MSG can put me down for weeks 😛

So I will try and press on and get out of this slump, drink my homemade juice and eat my leafy greens
