Why You Should Never Be Satisfied With Remission!





As a doctor, I was taught to never use the word, "cure." Cure is a four-letter dirty word in medicine. I have come to believe that this vilification is due to the fact that almost all of conventional medicine, with its carefully maintained persona of being the supreme manifestation of the healing arts, is almost exclusively based upon the concept of remission not cure. Remission is celebrated as a win, but is it really? 

One can readily buy hats, coffee cups, t-shirts that emblazoned with the word, "REMISSION." Of course remission feels good and provides relief, which many people are definitely needing, but one must be very clear that at some point in your treatment plan you must go beyond remission and seek a cure. 

Before your read further, I want to be clear that cure is a product of the restoration of optimum functioning of the body. Remission is a temporary, drug-induced illusion of a cure. It may seem like I am saying a lot about a little, yet tens of millions of people are stuck and somewhat satisfied with chasing pharmaceutical remissions as a primary goal, when there is another and debatably better way. It is as though some people feel that life itself is some ongoing remission of one bad thing or another. If one does not learn to live in balance, use healing treatments that work to restore the integrity of the body, live with a strong mindset of healthy living, focused upon the goal of prevention, it is indeed true.

The unspoken belief propagated by the mainstream is that, "If we cannot figure out how to heal you even with all of our high-tech facilities and tests, then no one can, so be satisfied with our drug-induced illusions of health and remission." Almost every medication used today for chronic illnesses are designed to be taken for the rest of a person's life.

Is your treatment plan headed for "cure" or will it only create remission? Do you know the difference between cure and remission? 

The answer to this question is pivotal in understanding the different treatment philosophies in the world. Remission is on the mind of every person treated with conventional medicine, “Am I a ticking time bomb?” “Will the hell that I have gone through just come back someday?”

There are fortunate individuals who take just antibiotics and experience a restoration of asymptomatic life. From the poll I had on here the other day it appears that most people reading these Health tips have been treated with huge amounts of antibiotics for extended periods.

The following will provide you with definitions from medical dictionaries so that you can come to your own answer. The definition of health, cure, remission, allopathic and biological medicine are pivotal in coming to your answer.

HEALTH:
 noun.
 1. The overall condition of an organism at a given time.
 2. Soundness, especially of body or mind; freedom from disease or abnormality.

CURE: 
noun.
 1. Restoration of health; recovery from disease.
 2. A method or course of treatment used to restore health.
 3. An agent, such as a drug, that restores health; a remedy. (Although the word, "drug" is used in the dictionary, if it restores health, it is not a remission-seeking, symptom-masking drug.)

REMISSION: 
a. Medicine; Abatement or subsiding of the symptoms (not the causes) of a disease.
 b. The period during which the symptoms of a disease abate or subside. 

ALLOPATHIC MEDICINE:
 A health care philosophy pertaining to conventional medical treatment of disease symptoms that uses substances or techniques to oppose or suppress the symptoms.

COMPLEMENTARY OR INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE: A health care philosophy that incorporates a mixed philosophy of conventional allopathic and natural medicine.

BIOLOGICAL MEDICINE or BIOREGULATORY MEDICINE: A pure, unmixed philosophy of health care that recognizes that all aspects of the body, mind, and spirit must be addressed and brought into optimal integrity before lasting restoration of health can be achieved. 

When in remission, one is only talking about the suppression of symptoms and therefore the causes remain underneath the medication and the symptoms even if gone for a period of time without medication, has a strong likelihood of returning since the actual cause of the illness was never addressed.

When you take a painkiller for the symptom of chronic headaches, during the period of no pain …you are in remission.

When a person takes antibiotics for a chronic infection, such as Lyme disease, without addressing the underlying systemic issues that lead to the actual "dis-ease", and because the bacterial overgrowth is indeed a only symptom of underlying problems in the body…you are most often only in remission.

Simply having Lyme bacteria and co-infections in a person's body does not mean that person will ever come down with the disease. This means the presence of bacteria is not the ultimate cause of LD. The bacteria might be thought of as the spark, while the weaknesses in the body are the dynamite! No weakness equals no explosion.

When the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis are suppressed or slowed down through drug therapy…you are in remission.

When conventional chemotherapy and radiation destroy cancer cells, the tumor is only the most evident symptom of systemic problems, therefore without addressing the many causes of the cancerous process…this is remission.

If you have a knife stuck in your leg and you take morphine and the pain goes away…you are in remission!

When you remove the knife and stitch up the wound and it heals…you are cured.

Of course, if the body has been destroyed beyond repair, then drug-induced remission may be all that is left. My point is that most mainstream medicine is not even attempting to facilitate the restoration of the function and integrity of the body as a primary treatment strategy. I feel it is worth pursuing restoration even late in an illness, because we have seen dramatic restorations of health, and apparent long-term, lasting health returns when the body is provided with the corrective treatments it needs, in some of the toughest cases. 

When all of the various causes and interferences to the optimum integrity and function of the many systems and tissues of the body are removed and the optimum integrity and function of every aspect of the body, mind, and spirit are restored, in any named illness…you are cured…the pain goes away, the paralysis reverses, the bacteria become none pathological, the tumor disappears. The symptoms will not return unless you redo the things that set the problem in motion in the first place.

The primary difference between the remedies of Biological Medicine and drugs of Allopathic Medicine is that every remedy is used with the sole purpose of restoring some aspect of dysfunction of the body, which once corrected the remedy can be discontinued. Not all, but the majority of drugs seek only to suppress symptoms and therefore these drugs must be taken for the remainder of the person’s life.

One of the most disrespected aspects of natural and conventional medicine’s view of the human body, and its suffering, is that there is little understanding and respect for the wisdom of the body. 

It is this understanding and wisdom of what problems the body is attempting to adapt to that differentiates the Doctor using Biological Medicine (BioRegulatory Medicine) from that of conventional, allopathic medical doctors who justify their suppressive treatments by the disappearance of the symptoms, in spite of what the body is attempting to overcome, and in spite of the secondary side-effects.

The highest achievement of any doctor is to successfully facilitate the restoration of body's ability to heal itself. While the doctors at the Hansa Center cannot always achieve complete restoration of health for every person, to strive towards this goal is superior, in my opinion, seeking only remission and hiding the symptoms with pharmaceuticals.

Most of the best Biological Medicine hospitals of Europe and those few Biological Medicine clinics in the United States have completely moved away from the treatment of diseases and have moved to the incredibly huge task of systematically of going painstakingly through every issue that can be found in the entire organism of the human. From this stance "dis-ease" often falls away.

The philosophy of Biological Medicine seeks to provide the body with the building blocks and corrective bio-information and therapeutics to restore the optimum integrity and function of the entire body, mind, and spirit. From this treatment philosophy the causes and the symptoms of “disease” falls away, and “Health is restored” resulting in cure...in spite of the presence of bacteria!

So based upon these definitions, are you headed for cure or remission?

Nobel Prize-Winning Science Opens New Treatments for Chronic Illnesses





The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine just went to three biologists1,2,3,4,5 — Jeffrey Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael Young — for their discovery of master genes that control your body's circadian rhythms and how energy regulates health and healing.

Why is this so important? Your symptoms worsen or improve at different times of the day or night because of what this important science reveals.

You may not cough at all during the day, but like clockwork you start coughing at 11 p.m. or some other time of night. You might have anxiety, pain, or some other symptom that only shows up at a certain time of day, only to disappear later at night. This science explains why you worsen or feel better at different times of the day. The science also enables your doctor to now dig deeper and get more effect from treatments that are non-pharmaceutical and non-toxic, and that actually respect the wisdom of your body, as they work to restore your body's ability to heal itself of virtually every malady that plagues mankind.


It turns out that each organ, tissue, and indeed every cell in your body, receives more energy for a two hour period at specific times of the 24 hour body clock. Your symptoms will often get worse or better at different times of the day when these rhythms shift in your body. This awareness can lead to more strategic targeting and treatments to correct the epigenetic expression of these master genes, that create cyclical worsening of infections, and systemic organ/gland dysfunctions.

The human body regulates its functions via electromagnetic signals. Naysayers and scientific-know-it-alls will likely come out of the woodwork to attempt to debunk this fact and indeed even the Nobel-winning science, screaming "pseudoscience." Pseudoscience" is often screamed by those with pseudo-intelligence to justify their narrow view of the issue, but I digress. 

The body is controlled by regulatory-encoded energy that flows through somewhat dedicated circuits. The heart is the primary generator of energy in the body, producing 60 times more electromagnetic energy than the entire central and peripheral nervous system combined! Of course every tissue also produces energy via the energy factories called mitochondria. The heart is now being consider as a second brain that sends out bioregulatory information with its powerful electromagnetic pulses.

Another Nobel-prize winning scientist, Luke Montagnier, Ph.D., demonstrated how profoundly important the body's energy is when he was able to spontaneously construct perfect strands of DNA using just the electromagnetic signature imprinted into water containing all the individual ingredients necessary to make DNA. The individual DNA ingredients self-organized into perfect strands of DNA. The body's energy is not just on or off, such as a light bulb. The body's energy contains your dynamic regulatory information that controls every bodily function.

Dr. Montagnier demonstrated he could create perfect strands of HIV DNA and he also created perfect Lyme bacterial DNA by imprinting the water with each microbe's unique electromagnetic signature! (On a side note, interestingly, this remarkable and reproducible research so scared the "powers that be" that they ostracized Dr. Montagnier and have done every they can do to discredit him and his research.)  Even though the most advanced research around the world of biomedicine has already demonstrated much the same basic concept using encoded microwave technology to create self-organizing and self-assembling polymers, which bear shocking resemblance to those suffering from Morgellon's disease, an illness where star plastic polymers are isolated from the skin, urine, and saliva. One might get the idea that "the powers that be" don't want the public to understand that subtle energy controls everything, and that potentially the microwaves emitted from your cellphone, wifi signal, and even vaccines are delivering frequencies into your body that could, in theory, either purposely or incidentally disrupt genetic expression. The more subtle the energy, the more profound its effect on your body's electromagnetic regulation.

This may be one reason that the FDA and FTC are going after homeopathy to severely limit its availability to the public. Homeopathic remedies are the electromagnetic signatures of therapeutic substances. Homeopathy uses subtle frequencies to counteract pathological subtle frequencies. The only profound way to treat what is essentially your body's software, is to counteract the energetic glitch in your body with a strategically selected energetic remedy, homeopathic remedies.

When the energy production and therefore the bioregulation of your body breaks down, becomes dysregulated, or loses its synchronization, dysfunction and disease will always be the end result. It is important to know that if all of the organs of your body got all of the energy all of the time there would not be enough energy to go around. Each organ has its time during the day when it gets the most energy. Indeed, when more energy is needed, such as when exercising, every tissue has to increase it's energy creation and output, if not then your body is profoundly drained and it can take a long time to recover from the exercise, and may even lead to bringing down a circuit low enough to allow an illness to arise.

Based upon the organ circuit clock we can see that the bio-rhythms of the body can get very messed up. The whole body clock can be altered due to illness, jet-lag, and switching work shifts from day to night, medications, vaccines, and electromagnetic pollution from wifi, cell phones and computers.

The Chinese discovered and mapped the organ clock thirteen centuries ago and it has stood the test of time, and now with this Nobel-prize winning research we can understand just how important it is to achieving your most optimum health and quality of life. Understanding this body clock is important for both you and your doctor.

Many people tell me their symptoms get worse or better at a certain time of day. This is a great clue to a doctor who knows the organ clock. If the symptoms are worse at night between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. then the doctor knows that the liver is a good place to look for the source of that problem, since the liver is most active at that time.

Notice that the bladder and kidney circuits should be essentially "turned off", or just operating at a low energetic level at night when you should be sleeping, since they have their turn of highest energy between 3 p.m.-7 p.m. So for all of you who urinate all night, yet justify it by the fact that you drink a lot of water, your clock is likely messed up.

It is interesting that your bowels should eliminate soon after you awaken to start the day "fresh". Also interesting is that the heart's time of highest energy is between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Lunch time is when most heart attacks occur.

All this is just to show how beautifully we are made, and how just killing bacteria, detoxing, taking supplements, exercising, and eating well is often not all that is needed to heal from today's complex illnesses. It is my opinion, after almost a quarter century of treating only the toughest, chronic illnesses from around the world, that if you have to continually take something in order to feel better, then it is likely not addressing your body's primary issues. If you are addressing the primary issues then you should reach the point where you can stop taking everything and the body will maintain itself with just good diet, and healthy lifestyle choices.

So...not only does it take time to heal, but we must also heal our organ time zones!

Your body organ clock:
5-7 a.m. —   Large Intestine
7-9 a.m. —   Stomach
9-11 a.m. — Pancreas
11 a.m.-1 p.m. — Heart
1-3 p.m. —   Small Intestine
3-5 p.m. —   Bladder
5-7 p.m. —   Kidney
7-9 p.m. —   Reproductive system
9-11 p.m. — Thyroid, adrenal glands
11 p.m.- 1 a.m. — Gall Bladder
1-3 a.m. —   Liver
3-5 a.m. —   Lung




Organ Time Zone (OTZ) problems are caused by interferences in the body's regulation, such as illness, medications, and environmental factors. All of the organs and glands are interdependent and must work in unison. If one organ is struggling, it throws off all of the others. It is like an orchestra playing a beautiful classical piece of music, and suddenly a trumpet player breaks out into a Hip Hop song. The rhythm of the entire orchestra is thrown off.

Organ time zone problems are medically referred to as desynchronosis, or chronobiology, which is a physiological condition which results from alterations to the body's circadian rhythms. Anyone who has traveled overseas has experienced desynchronosis in the form of jet-lag. The circadian rhythms of the body are most often associated with our waking and sleeping schedule, however it also includes the shifting of the organ energy levels.

The following chart was developed by Thomas Rau, M.D. of the Paracelsus Clinic in Switzerland and is the most detailed Organ Time Zone or "circuit chart" available:




People with thyroid and adrenal weakness often feel best just before bedtime. From the chart you can see that energy shifts to supply these glands with more energy between 9-11 p.m. It is sad because they feel horrible all day long, and just when everyone else in the house is tired and ready for bed, these people are just hitting their best time of day and don't want to go to sleep. In this case, it is not that they are on the wrong time zone, meaning maybe their liver is going active and is getting the most energy when the thyroid and adrenal glands are supposed to be having its time of highest energy.  In this case, you can see that the thyroid and adrenal glands are weak (often even with medication to treat these glands) and the reason these people feel better in the evening is because there is more energy being sent to the glands. Once the time and energy aspects of the thyroid and adrenals are corrected, as well as all the other associated tissues and issues, these people can often get back onto a more normal sleep schedule and feel energized throughout the day.

There are many potential strategies your healthcare provider might use to address these organ circuit problems. It must be understood that organ time zones can be off for multiple reasons within each organ circuit. It will require the ability to test the circuits individually as well as collectively in order to synchronize your cellular and organ body clock. 

The doctors at the Hansa Center for Optimum Health, in Wichita, KS, have developed tests and therapeutic strategies to address and reset the circuits of the body. If your healthcare team is not addressing the totality of what is going on in your body circuits, you can take all the right sounding medications and remedies with little effect on your symptoms. Correcting the timing and organ circuits at the Hansa Center involves synchronizing the heart-brain with the head-brain via NeuroCardial Synchronization (NCS), and NeuroPhotonic Therapy (NPT), as well as strategic use of low potency homeopathic sarcodes made from Biodynamically-grown sources, to increase energy in a weak circuit, or high potency sarcodes for helping the body in situations where there is an overactive circuit. Indeed every treatment our doctors utilize is strategically targeting and reinforcing all of the highly specific issues, as well as the overall integrity of the body's circuitry.

Another common example of OTZ problems is seen when the bladder circuit, which should have its time of highest energy between 3-5 p.m., instead turns on in the middle of the night. You can see from the chart that the bladder's time of highest energy should be between 3-5 in the afternoon, so if it is active  at 3-5 a.m. it indicates that the body's time zones are off off by six time zones!

Organ time zone problems cannot be detected by blood tests, nor are they corrected by medications and natural supplements that strive to do for the body what the body should be doing for itself. Thyroid medication is a good example of this because they are most often providing the body with the thyroid hormones, instead of working to restore the thyroid's ability to do it for itself, the way is was designed. Of course, if the thyroid has been destroyed for whatever reason, these medications are the best thing you can do. The OTZ for the thyroid can still often be reset to the correct time and energy, even if the gland itself does not work perfectly.


Often the body clock will be temporarily shifted when an organ or gland is so dysfunctional that the wisdom of the body knows it needs to keep the majority of its energy going to that situation. Although all of the other organs still get some energy throughout the day, the majority of energy is going to fight the infection or whatever issue is affecting the organ.

A real problem is seen when multiple organs and glands are being attacked and are dysfunctional, as seen in infections that can affect every system of the body, such as Lyme disease, mold issues, and other microbial attacks. Now the body's energy is spread out all the time, in an attempt to provide each affected organ or gland with the energy it needs to fight and repair. The body's energy production cannot keep up with the demand and global chronic fatigue sets in.

OTZ problems go largely undetected and unaddressed by the vast majority of doctors because they are focused solely on the numbers on your blood test. Not only that, but the energetic nature of the human body is only mildly acknowledged in the mainstream. Doctors would need to actually come out from behind their desk or look up from the patient file and do energetic testing. That is not likely to happen anytime soon.

OTZ problems can only be addressed by a doctor trained to detect and correct the body's energetic clock and organ time zones. In the mess that most chronically ill people's body are in, it makes sense that if the goal is to restore the body's ability to heal from the inside out, then reseting the proper body clock time zones would be an important thing to do.

Of course, not every case of excessive urination at night will be due to OTZ issues. Not every case of insomnia, coughing, pain, neuropathy, and such, can be blamed on OTZ problems. The concept goes much deeper than this article can cover. Click on this hyperlink to see that organ desynchronosis includes all the rhythms of the body, right down to genetic rhythms. This is why the simplistic idea that drives most of modern day medicine, that every organ and biochemical can be pharmaceutically forced to behave, is really flawed. Forcing the body into drug-induced illusions of health, symptom-suppression, when there are better treatment options, is just throwing off the rhythms of everything. Much of the conventional and even many natural medicine treatments are what I call, "Pieces and Parts Doctoring."


Resetting the organ time zones requires advanced testing and treatment skills, and can result in virtually instantaneous improvements in many individuals, however beyond just quick improvements,  our desire is not just to help you feel better, but to help you stay better in the longterm. This is one reason we most often ask you to allow two or more weeks so that we can continue daily to help facilitate the fine tuning of your physiology. As your body changes in response to our treatments, we are addressing how your body did or did not shift correctly overnight during your daily testing and treatments. 

Ideally, in this day and age of electro-polution and other life challenges, you would see a healthcare professional every three months, at the very least, to check and readjust things in order to maintain optimum cellular and organ circuit rhythms. No matter what treatments the doctors at the Hansa Center use, from the first office visit to the last, they are always checking to ensure that the remedies and treatments are all working with the natural rhythms of your body.

Your Body is Designed to Heal! Our Job is to Facilitate Healing!



Did you know that if you accidentally cut off the end of your finger anywhere beyond the last knuckle that your body would completely regenerate it perfectly as long as your doctor doesn't sew the skin closed at the end?

When you are healthy, your body regenerates a brand new stomach lining every 4 days, new skin every 30 days, a new liver in 6 weeks, and even the skeleton is replaced every three months. Your hair grows half an inch a month, and adult fingernails grow one-tenth of an inch a month. Pictured with this post is the regeneration of human nerve cells, the slowest tissue to naturally heal. This natural regeneration of your body is greatly influenced by your overall health. 

Natural repair/regeneration is most obvious when you have a simple problem like a blister. It will take four weeks for the skin to completely heal to the point that you cannot see where the blister was. Obviously it will take longer than four weeks if you pick at the blister and the scab, if it gets infected, or if you are nutritionally depleted. 

It is the proverbial "salt in the wound" when disease has injured the tissues of virtually every system in the body. Nothing can regenerate and repair correctly when all that is being done by your doctor are medications that are damaging the body and covering up the symptoms. 

We are in such a quick-fix society that many people are very impatient when their illness takes a long time to heal. Often a person will give their doctor very minimal time to make significant change in their illness or they will write the doctor or the system of care off as being no good. 

We frequently see significant change happen in two weeks of care, however the body is dynamic and constantly changing, which means the carefully selected remedies you are taking must be adjusted periodically. The person you were yesterday no longer exists. Especially in the chronic illnesses, the idea that you can just get on a selection of remedies and take them for a year or more and eventually be well is misguided. 

At the Hansa Center we find that when the remedies are addressing your issues at the direct cause, then they do what they are going to do rather quickly, and then we will adjust the remedies to 
address whatever issue is remaining. If you have been sick for a long time, it is likely that almost every tissue and every system of your body is impaired in its ability to regenerate and heal. Your hair virtually stops growing, and your skin gets thinner as it cannot regenerate as fast as its skin cells are flaking off.

So this is why every system and every issue must be addressed during every office visit with your doctor when you have a chronic illness. Do not accept the idea that "If my doctor can just kill all of these bacteria, then I will be well." You will be well when every system and issue has been restored to optimum health, and that health maintained long enough for your body to be able to replace the dysfunctional cells with healthy ones. Persistent symptoms are not a sign of bacteria or viruses, but are instead a sign of tissue irritation or damage.

True healing never seeks to simply mask the symptoms, since that would defeat the point of truly healing.

My point is that your healthcare team should be working to identify every single issue in your entire body on every single office visit! Health and healing is a function of the body, not the function of a medication or selection of remedies. Pharmaceuticals are most often a trap, since almost all of them only suppress the symptoms, meaning once you start them you must stay on them forever. They are not fixing anything, otherwise you would not need to take them forever. Find doctors at the very start of your illness who work to restore the body's ability to function correctly and your symptoms and illness will fall away.

If you are years into your illness then you are likely a more difficult case. If your conventional doctor did not seek to facilitate the restoration of your body to function normally or was unsuccessful in their attempts then you probably cannot just stop your meds. It will require some skillful treatments to enable your body to get back to work and truly heal.

The good news is that your body is designed to heal. Our job is to facilitate the body's ability to heal itself and stay healthy.

All the Correct Remedies, No Improvement?



Exercise intolerance and sluggish healing are common problems in people suffering from chronic illness. For all of the great intentions, exercise machines are most often used as a place to hang clothes. It is the proverbial "catch 22," you know you need to exercise to get back to the health you desire, but your body is too weak and the post-workout pain it too much to endure, to continue working out. Many chronically ill people have a veritable pharmacy of half used and now expired natural and prescription bottles in their cupboards due to worsening symptoms or no relief when they took them. As you will see both situations are often from the same problem.

Blown Circuits in the Body

What most people, and unfortunately most doctors, don't know is that the many muscle groups of the body are set up on dedicated circuits, much like the circuits of your house. If you go to the circuit breaker box in your house you will see that there are many different circuits dedicated to the various areas of your house. 

In a circuit in the body you will find the following all sharing a somewhat dedicated electromagnetic circuit… one organ, gland, certain teeth, certain nerves, joints, and certain muscles. For example, the front two teeth on the upper and lower jaw sit on the same circuit as the kidneys, ears, pineal gland, and the psoas muscles on both sides of the body.

The big quadriceps muscles that are located on the top of your thigh, that help you climb stairs, sit on the same circuit with the small intestines, and so on... If there are problems anywhere on these circuits the body will not give 100% energy to the blown, dysfunctional circuit, so that you will not damage things further by being able to go full-tilt on a damaged circuit. 

So problems anywhere in the circuit from structural, chemical, stress-related issues, or bioenergetic "software/bioregulation" problems in the circuits will cause the entire circuit to "blow" and everything on that circuit suffers the same fate.

When these circuits are "blown," the muscles on these circuits will only work at about 40% of maximum integrity. “It isn’t a problem with not working out enough.” With just 40% of the normal strength available, there is not enough strength in the muscles to stabilize the joints, leading to pain, nor is there enough mitochondria (energy factories in the muscle fibers) to produce enough ATP (what your body uses for energy) to enable you to do many repetitions of your workout. 

Post workout pain is often due to the accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles (loading up on Lipospheric Vitamin C before workouts can help minimize this from happening), the stirring up of toxins, as well as inflammation set up by the many micro-traumas in the tissues from the strain of working out without any circuit integrity. 

"Blown circuits" happen when there are any type of physical, chemical, stress, or bioenergetic problem in the body, not to mention when multiples of these issues are going on at the same time.

One can work out, and even make strength gains, but it will still be only about
40% of what should be available. Taking all the right sounding remedies, if they are not what is needed to turn on the circuits, will only provide brief symptom relief after which they stop working.

Working to detoxify the body, while always a good idea in this day and age, or killing bad bacteria will most often not result in turning on the full power to the circuits.

It would be nice if it were that easy, but it unfortunately requires a health care professional trained to test and treat the entire circuit...especially in any chronic illness.

60% Faster Healing?

Imagine how fast you would go, or how much more rapidly your body could heal, having 60% more integrity in the muscles!” 

Again, while eating and living with integrity are definitely steps in the right direction, only a doctor trained to identify and address the myriad of circuit problems can get your body truly reset. 

The key to understanding how important these connections are is that any problem anywhere in the circuit will cause everything on that circuit to “blow”, much like overloading the electrical circuit in your house. Everything on the circuit will suffer the same fate! 

So in the above example, if the tooth has a bad infection or is being affected by a large silver amalgam filling, or even a bad root canal, it will “blow” the energetic integrity of everything else on that circuit, and the psoas muscles will reflect the problem as a loss of strength.

Athletes depend upon their muscles to ultimately perform and excel in their sport. Few people understand that it is not enough to simply exercise a lot. Not if you want to become a truly world-class athlete, or to simply get back to health and endurance after a prolonged illness.

Can Instant Results be Truly Possible?

We have used this new understanding of body circuits to virtually instantly “cure” people who have
been paralyzed and others who have not been able to walk for years.  

It would be nearly impossible to do without the many testing and treatment options that we can bring to bear on each case. When asked “How can you get these amazing results so quickly?” I answer with, “When the circuit in your house blows, how long does it take the lights to come back on once you have flipped the switch back on?” “Instantly!” Healing, especially from any chronic illness, is a process, just getting the circuits online again can often achieve phenomenal, virtually instantaneous improvements in muscle strength and endurance, it can take months and years of work to get back to the level of physical strength and health that you desire.

Restoring Healing in Chronic Illness is like...

All the vitamins, supplements, and treatments in the world should be seen as numbers in a combination lock for the bank vault door, behind which lies the wealth of your health. Unless you get the numbers in the correct order, you will never get the door to open. This is why most chronically ill people have a virtual pharmacy in their cupboards of supplements and remedies, often given to them by top natural doctors, using all manner of muscle testing and computerized testing devices, all to no avail. 

You can have the right numbers (remedies), but in the wrong order, or the actual missing treatments are not from a pill, but need manual or energetic corrections, and the bank fault of your health will not open. 

To complicate things, the sicker you are, the longer you have been sick, the less likely it is that you will be able to heal at home on a generic protocol. 

The success we enjoy at the Hansa Center is based upon our incredibly sensitive testing via Linear Polarization enhanced signaling BioResonance Scanning, Alfa Thermodiagnostics, phonocardiograms, software enhanced blood test analysis, and so much more.

Addressing Ammonia Toxicity From Lyme Disease, MS, ALS, Autism, and Parkinsons



If you have Lyme disease, MSALS, Parkinson's, Autism, and many other chronic illnesses...you have ammonia accumulating in your brain and tissues. It is imperative to the healing process that you and your doctor address the ammonia at the same time as you are addressing the cause of the ammonia...the Lyme bacteria, through the Borrelia burgdorferi production of urease enzyme!

Hyperammonemia (Excess accumulation of ammonia in the brain and tissues of the body) in combination with cerebral venous circulation disturbances, microbial issues and metabolic pathway dysfunction are largely unaddressed components that cause muscle weakness, muscle wasting, profound fatigue, mitochondria damage, tremors, brain dysfunction, depersonalization, depression, neuropathy, and muscle fasciculations seen in MS, ALS, and Parkinson's disease. Of course, poor oral bite/TMJ dynamics, environmental electro-polution,  dental mercury and environmental heavy metals, dietary and environmental toxins, also play an important role in the development of these illnesses, however this article focuses on the huge problem of excess ammonia. Stop the accumulation of ammonia often stops the progression of these illnesses.

Beyond hidden bacterial infections, there are other secondary sources that can add to the load of ammonia, such as Candida-type yeast which metabolize gluten from dietary wheat, rye, barley, and oats into ammonia in the gut. Another cause of excessive ammonia is chronic liver dysfunction.

Ammonia is very alkaline at an 11.6 pH. Many doctors have been taught that most sick people have acidic bodies. The reality is not that simple. People may be predominantly acidic, their urine and saliva may be acidic, but they are also extremely alkaline in the areas of ammonia accumulation. Lyme disease is a game changer when it comes to the acid/alkalinity of the body. 

This is why many people worsen when they drink alkalinized water, or are given dietary recommendations such as fresh fruits and vegetables which most often work to alkalinize the body. (No, this is not permission to go back to junk food or processed foods that are acid-promoting!) It appears that alkalinizing these people is only aggravating the already over-alkaline ammonia regions of their body, the brain, heart and liver. The ammonia conditions must be cleared before addressing the more acidic regions of their body! Click on this hyperlink to read more on ways to change your diet to help minimize the symptoms of ammonia.

We can extrapolate from the fact that Lyme bacteria seem to thrive in the highly alkaline environment created by ammonia (11.6 pH), that it is not going to work to attempt to kill the bacteria through drinking highly alkaline water, or eating alkaline-promoting diets. Once the Lyme bacteria and ammonia issues are addressed adequately then yes, an alkaline promoting diet is best.

It is almost impossible to culture Lyme bacteria in a lab setting if the growth medium in the petri dish is not just right, or if the temperature or pH is not just right. So from this we can see that Borrelia burgdorferi are not invincible monsters that absolutely cannot be beaten. The challenge then is to "sour the milk" or shift your body's internal environment to one that makes survival very difficult for the bacteria. Correcting the hyperammonemia (high ammonia) issue can help achieve a less hospitable environment for the bacteria, making your other antibacterial efforts possibly more effective.

Not everything can be done with remedies, especially the longer you have been sick. The longer one has been sick the more skill that will be required to successfully facilitate the body's ability to completely heal. It has been my experience that the sicker you are, the longer you have been sick, the more organs and systems of your body that have been damaged, the less likely you can successfully navigate through all the possible treatment options by yourself at home. The remedies I list below can definitely help you, however it may be wise to seek professional help with all the issues going on beyond eliminating ammonia.

You must use the correct tool for the job. Diet, combined with full-spectrum infrared sauna therapy, remedies, nutrition, hands on treatments, and so much more are needed to optimize the body's ability to bring down the population of bacteria, and eliminate the ammonia. 

Most people just want to take some remedies at home and feel better. I understand that, however if you don't feel better it does not mean the remedies are not working, it means there is too much else going on, (such as damaged, inflamed, and irritated tissues) for simply removing the ammonia to correct. 

Remember, ammonia is a toxin. We call things toxins because they damage tissues. It is like burning your finger on the stove. You immediately jerk your hand off the flame, but the burn and pain remains. So simply eliminating the ammonia will not always instantly get rid of the damage to the tissues or the symptoms.

Also, until the bacteria are brought under control, they continue to produce more ammonia, so getting rid of the ammonia will be an ongoing process until your body can successfully beat down the Lyme bacteria. To help the body eliminate the cause of the ammonia, the bacteria, I developed three different formulas, the first of which I presented compelling research for at the International Tick-Borne Diseases Conference in New York City. 

Although no natural formula is cleared by the FDA to treat or cure any named illness, we can make "structure and function" claims for natural formulations. These formulas are not natural antibiotics. They work to enable the body's own defenses to kill the bacteria...in huge numbers if you read the research. 

  1. Eliminate the source of ammonia, the bacteria
  2. Eliminate the ammonia, through ammonia-specific supplements
  3. Support the organs of elimination
Eliminating the Source of ammonia, the bacteria:
I would recommend discussing with your healthcare professional, starting with Borrelogen™ at 1 dropper 2-3 times a day for one bottle, or as they recommend. Depending upon your response you can the ask your healthcare professional about switching over to Lymogen™ if you need a change, at the same dosage or as they recommend. The successes our doctors have enjoyed at the Hansa Center for 20 years are largely around these remedies, although when you come you might not be tested as needing any of these formulas that I developed. Our testing helps us identify specifically what your unique body needs, which is why we carry over 3000 natural remedies from all the best companies to test you with in each treatment room.

No matter what way you choose to enable the killing of the Lyme bacteria, conventional antibiotics, or natural remedies, you definitely need to deal with the toxic ammonia. As I have discussed, most medicines and remedies will not cross the blood-brain-barrier (BBB). 

Eliminating the Ammonia:
I have traveled to Brazil to search for botanicals from the Amazon that might effectively clear ammonia from the body. I have tested alongside medicine-men in Africa. I have been to huge plant specimen repositories, and tested large collections of medicinal substances from the world of Chinese medicine, not to mention testing everything I can get my hands on from standard botanical and homeopathic arsenals. There are only two botanicals out of everything I have tested that consistently work and have been verified either by laboratory experiments or by Functional Acuity Contrast Testing (FACT) of the toxins interference in the brain. 

These two botanicals are Silphium laciniatum leaf extract, and Hibiscus sabdarifa leaf extract. I developed the Silphium into a stand alone extract called, "Siphitrin" and enhanced it's effectiveness in the NeuroAntitox Formulas. The Hibiscus sabdarifa leaf extract is available as a stand alone remedy, that can be taken at the same time as the NeuroAntitox Formula or by itself.

When your healthcare professional finds ammonia is not just in the typical Lyme presentation of the liver, heart, brain, and jaws, but is found all over the body, such as is the case with almost all MS and ALS sufferers, then I would suggest using L-Ornithine/L-Aspertate, which used to be a German prescription drug called Hepamertz, that was used for the same purpose of helping reduce the ammonia seen in severe liver diseases. It is now available as a supplement. In that L-Ornithine/L-Aspartate does not work as well as the NeuroAntitox Formula, it is recommended that they be taken together.

Our Hansa Center doctors are trained to also target and suppress the production of urease by the bacteria to help eliminate the ammonia.

Consult with your natural healthcare professional before starting any new supplement. A general recommendation for the SilphitrinHibiscus, or NeuroAntitox Formula is 1-3 droppers, 2-3 times a day, with or without food. 

The Silphitrin and NeuroAntitox Basic Formula can be used in a soaking bath, for those whose digestive systems do not handle remedies and medicines well. The bath instructions are on the label of the bottle. Soak your body no more than 20 minutes in warm water, not hot water. 

Support the Organs of Elimination:
If one studied all the various supplements that support the detoxification and elimination organs it would rapidly be clear that you could spend hundreds of dollars on many different types of products. I have found that Metacrin-DX by Apex Energetics, Inc. is a gentle yet powerful product to support phase-1 and phase 2 of the liver detoxification pathways. 

Fiber is another important component of supporting proper bowel movements and the removal of toxins. Fiber acts like a sponge in the intestines, so I recommend Chewable Total Fiber by Nutriwest, Inc. It is better to have a somewhat dry sponge that can soak up poisonous cellular debris, than do drag a wet rag through the gut, like many fiber products that are mixed in water. 

Of course, drink plenty of purified water everyday to help support cellular function and to support the rapid clearing of toxins. Most people are dehydrated, often even when they drink a lot of water, because they have destroyed the membranes responsible for fluid transportation, impairing the body's ability to  effectively distribute water to the tissues. When the membranes are damaged, a person will often drink copious amounts of water, yet most of the water is rapidly urinated out. This leads to stagnation and dehydration in the tissues and organs, which can be addressed by using a product called Gather Vitality, by K'an Herbs, Inc. 

Juicing your own green drinks or getting them from your local health food store is another vitally important step in supporting the organs of elimination. Try juicing organic cucumber, kale, rainbow chard, apple, whole lime, and parsley or cilantro. It tastes great and is a power packed, nutrient dense infusion of nutrients that support the organs and enable them to have the strength to detox more effectively. Remember, asking the body to detox is asking the body to work really hard, often when the body is already very fatigued. You cannot or should not do any detoxification without also giving the body extra support to do the work.

If your primary symptoms are not severe brain issues, such as seen in MS, Parkinson's, or ALS then you definitely want to invest in a Full-Spectrum Infrared Sauna for your personal use. Virtually no other device can "sour the milk", and shift the internal environment of your body than one of these saunas! Lyme bacteria cause the body to overcool. People with chronic LD often report that their body temperature is very low. If you are ever 96.5 or below, you are in real trouble and need to take this seriously. Every system of the body is energetically "working on fumes" and getting more toxic by the day as the body fluids, such as the lymph fluid, turn into a gel. 

There is a new way to do sauna therapy that quadruples its healing effects. The Sunlighten Saunas now have the options for Acoustic Resonance TherapyChromotherapy, Full-spectrum Infrared waves, 6-preset wellness programs, and a proprietary cream that enhances sweating in those tough to sweat areas!  These saunas are a long way from the boring saunas of old. They even offer a biofeedback option! These saunas are made for people with extreme sensitivities. The six-person Sunlighten Basswood saunas are the ones we use at the Hansa Center, and the smaller units are perfect for healing at home.

How to Choose and Use the Best Probiotic for Your Situation



You can take a pharmaceutical drug which has one function and many side-effects, or you can take these friendly bacteria listed in this article and get dozens of huge benefits, with absolutely no side-effects.

New research shows that the healthy human body can have up to 3000 different species of bacteria that outnumber the cells of your body by 10 times! These bacteria (probiotics) protect you from invading bacteria, such as Lyme spirochetes, C. diff, Strep, Staph, E. coli, and every other microbe that may invade your body. Not only do these friendly bacteria kill invading microbes, but they serve vital roles in maintaining health on every single level of the body.

The absence of these probiotic bacteria allows invading bacteria to cause diseases. The absence also causes the breakdown of the body's biochemical engine, leading to dysfunction, degeneration, and is involved in the development of nearly every disease that can be named.  

To get the full picture of the huge potential that has medical science so excited, read my previous articles on the topic:


Preparing your body:

Two to four weeks prior to sending in your bacterial army, you must create the optimum growing environment for your bacterial army to go to war!



 Read this hyperlinked article on how to prepare your body before introducing therapeutic probiotics.

Before sending in your troops of friendly bacteria, discontinue all of the natural products and supplements that you were taking to help the body dislodge and eliminate (kill) as many of the invading microbes in your body. Many of those natural antibacterial products may also harm some of the good guys. Many people are afraid to stop taking their prescription or natural antibiotics, but this fear may be unfounded when considering that probiotic bacteria have been studied since the 1970's and some types have been shown to be able to produce over 100,000 different types of very potent antibiotic compounds that can be selectively produced by the probiotic bacteria to kill and control invading microbes! 

Hopefully you read my previous articles that laid out the grand strategic plan. Simply taking a lot of probiotics will provide short-term gains, but that strategy is doomed to fail in the long term if you don't prepare your body ahead of time to ensure their successful colonization in your body.

Choosing which Probiotics to take:

I have listed many of the most researched probiotic bacteria later in this article so that you and your doctor can select the most beneficial ones for your situation. Taking more types and quantities than you need is not better.

There are many genetic variations of the same species of probiotic bacteria. So one company that sells Lactobacillus acidophilus may have a genetic strain that is different than another company's Lactobacillus acidophilus. One brand may work much better for your unique body than another. The best system is to choose the species of bacteria most likely to address your health concern; read the labels of different brands of probiotics. Finish the bottle and if you got less effect than you desired then stay with the same species but switch brands. 

You will find that everyone has a favorite brand of probiotic which worked wonders for them. The same brand may not do anything for your body, because it is not the genetic variation your particular body needs. Of course always use the best brand you can afford. 

If you have a specific health concern you need addressed I would recommend you initially avoid taking probiotic supplements with many types of beneficial bacteria, and instead take a brand that has just the types of bacteria you feel you need. It is much better to take just what you need at first instead of throwing some of everything at your body, so that you don't have every type attempting to colonize at the same time.

As mentioned in previous articles I have written on this topic, the doctors at the Hansa Center for Optimum Health are working on ways to test and identify the exact species and ratio of each type of bacteria our patients need and then compound those bacteria into a formula that is tailor made to fit their unique bodies and situation.

Our doctors are also working on ways to create frequency-enhanced (tagged) probiotics to further increase their targeted performance and successful colonization in your body. The friendly bacteria that colonize your body have often been passed on through the generations of your family and passed on to you during the transit through vaginal birthing and breastfeeding. These bacteria carry genetic tags that identify them as part of your body, every bit as much as the actual cells that make up your body. The probiotic bacteria you take, either in supplements or fermented foods, may be the same species, but they do not carry your family genetic tag, so they most often cannot colonize and become part of your collective bacterial family and are instead eliminated in the bowel movements. This is why our work to give a frequency tag of sorts to the probiotic bacteria we use on our patients is so important. Time will tell just how effective it is.
 
We keep individual species of probiotic bacteria at the clinic so that we can compound the specific types your body and situation needs, then give them the frequencies needed to hopefully help them "blend in" with your body's friendly bacterial colonies. Remember the point is to get the bacteria to gain a foothold and to colonize permanently in your body, not just to have them kill invaders, heal tissues, and correct your biochemistry as they pass through your intestines and are eliminated in your bowel movements.

What Form of Probiotic to Use:

The form of probiotics I like the best, and possibly the most efficient way to take a wide range of probiotics, is in powdered or encapsulated powder form. These probiotic bacteria are freeze-dried, which puts the bacteria into suspended animation. They are essentially asleep and temperature stable, which means they do not need refrigeration, although keeping them in a cool, dark place is best. Overheating, leaving the bottle lid loose, and exposure to light will create problems. 

To use powdered probiotics, add the serving to 8-10 ounces of room temperature purified spring water, which is non-chlorinated and has no fluoride, both of which will kill the probiotics, a good indication that you should never, ever drink chlorinated/fluorinated water. Distilled water is demineralized and therefore will be tough on the probiotics. Over acidic/alkaline water will also kill the probiotics. Purified, spring water is usually a very neutral pH (not too acidic or alkaline).

If you are using the capsule form of probiotic then open the capsule and empty the powder into about 8-10 ounces of water and let sit for a few minutes for all them to reanimate or wake up. Most manufactures of probiotics have developed strains of bacteria that are pH stable, so they can survive the full range of pH environments found in the body, from the mouth to the anus. 

Allow the water with the added probiotics to sit for a few minutes to give the bacteria time to "wake up" or re-animate before they have to get to work. Take the probiotic water two hours away from food. When there is food in the stomach, the pylorus, the valve-like muscle at the bottom of the stomach is closed and the stomach acid is high to breakdown the food. When the stomach is empty then the pylorus valve is open and the stomach acid should be at its lowest. By putting your probiotics in 8-10 ounces of water you increase the likelihood of washing them all the way through the stomach and into the small intestines where they can get to work.

Swish the probiotic water around your mouth and teeth before swallowing. Many of the bacteria help prevent dental cavities and fight periodontal disease. Indeed, probiotic bacteria are needed to colonize on every mucus membrane, from the mouth, nose, and sinuses, through the esophagus, lungs, and intestines.

Other forms of probiotics are pearls, liquids, and fermented food products. All of these are fine and my suggestion is to follow the manufacturer's or your doctor's recommendation as to when and how to take them. 


How Much to Take:

Some species of probiotic bacteria are hardier and tend to colonize more easily in your body, and therefore are not needed in as high of numbers per serving as other less hardy species. Most of the various types of readily available probiotic bacteria species need to have at least 10-15 billion CFU's (Colony Forming Units) per serving in order to be effective. A therapeutic dosage would be 20 Billion CFU's per serving. I would advise avoiding any company's probiotic that simply lists the amount of bacteria in milligrams, since you really do not know how many bacteria you are taking. 

Soil-based bacteria are often hardier and therefore less per serving are needed. This would included Bacillus subtilis, and coagulans. For these, a serving of 500 million to possibly 1 billion is all that is needed and taking more is not recommended as all the various species of bacteria in your body need to be in the correct population ratio without unnecessary competition.

This can be done two to three times a day or as directed by your health care professional. Listen to your body and adjust serving and times per day to minimize any potential discomfort you may experience.

Feeding Your Probiotics:

Supply your probiotics with the types of food they enjoy to ensure that they stay stronger than the bad guys. Feed them by eating organic food at mealtime and prebiotics, such as inulin or Jerusalem Artichoke. The word prebiotics is just a term for specific types of foods that feed bacteria. It is hugely important to feed your good bacteria, but do NOT use these foods, such as Inulin and Jerusalem artichoke until after you have completed the "Preparing Your Body for Probiotic Success Against Disease" section. The bad bacteria also love these foods.

Support not just your digestion but your good bacterial ability to also enjoy proper digestion by chewing all of your food completely before swallowing. The bacteria are microscopic, so when you swallow big chunks of food that are poorly chewed, it is like telling a person to eat a carrot the size of a skyscraper. The bad bacteria love big chunks of undigested food, since this food putrefies inside your gut and toxic sludge is what they love to eat! No matter what you are eating - meat, veggies, grains, or fruit, all of it should be the consistency of baby food before you swallow it. There are many important reasons for slowing down and chewing your food, but in this situation it is a highly important step to feed your bacterial army.

Gently Detoxify Your Intestines
Bad bacteria produce toxins that damage your body, such as cadaverinespermine, and putrecine. You must detoxify the body through strategic use of fiber and toxin-binders. I developed a formula called NeuroAntitox, which many doctors around the world have had much success using to minimize bacterial die-off toxic symptoms, as well as helping the body eliminate the ammonia that often accumulates in the body with H. pylori infections and candida overgrowth. Read this excellent article on the benefits and types of fiber to use, written by Dr. Mercola. You can also read my previous articles on ways to gently detoxify your body during illness and health restoration.

Probiotic Retention Enemas:
One of the most successful ways of introducing probiotics into the body is through doing probiotic retention enemas. To do this enema, start by doing a Gold-roast coffee enema to clean out the feces and putrified matter from the colon as outlined in my previous article. Prepare the probiotic water as detailed above, only this time put the powder in 2-3 ounces of body temperature water. Using a bulb enema applicator, lay on your left side and squeeze the bulb, injecting the probiotic water into the rectum. The idea is to retain this inside of your colon allowing it to flow through to the entire length of the colon. Once inside your rectum, roll to the elbows and knees position for a minute and then lay on your right side, allowing it to go to that side of the colon. Keep this in your body. The water will be absorbed and the bacteria will go to work right where you need them. Since the small intestines cannot be reached with this method, you should also take the probiotics orally as detailed above.
