20 Surprising Health Benefits of Lactoferrin

Lactoferrin is a naturally occurring protein that is found in milk and bodily fluids. It is a potent anti-microbial and modulator of the immune system. Several studies have shown that natural lactoferrin has many important roles. 1) Lactoferrin has Antioxidant Properties Because iron can cause oxidative stress, lactoferrin can reduce oxidative stress by binding and removing iron, which prevents cell damage or cell death. Lactoferrin supplementation can support the immune system as an antioxidant. 2) Lactoferrin Modulates the Immune System There are lactoferrin receptors on many immune cells, so lactoferrin directly affects how these cells function. . In infants lactoferrin is crucial to the

A Functional Medicine Approach to Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis , or MS, affects roughly 2.5 million people around the world. It affects more women than men, and is most often diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50. And while many people suffer from this condition, there are 4 different types of MS: relapsing-remitting, secondary-progressive, primary-progressive, and progressive-relapsing. About 85% of individuals with MS are diagnosed with relapsing-remitting, the mildest form of MS, characterized by occasional flare-ups in symptoms, or “relapses”. The other forms of MS are characterized by slowly worsening symptoms with or without flare-ups. What is multiple sclerosis? Multiple sclerosis is a chronic neurological autoimmune conditio

8 Myths and Facts About Autoimmune Disease

“If you can’t trust me, we can’t work together,” a doctor told a young woman who later became my patient. This woman lived in a tiny town in rural Texas where there was only one specialist equipped to handle her condition. But because she dared to question conventional medical wisdom, she was left without any treatment at all. I don’t want anyone to have to be in her position again. I’ve seen the science, I’ve reviewed the research, and I’ve treated thousands of patients. As both physician and patient, I’m confident that The Myers Way works, and I want you to be confident, too. So let’s take on conventional wisdom, myth by myth, dismantling each misconception and replacing it with the truth.

What Causes Lyme Disease?

Borrelia Burgdorferi Lyme disease is an infection caused by several strains of the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi(Bb). The bacteria is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected tick. These ticks can also transmit other diseases and infect pets and livestock. The tick that transmits Lyme is so small you may not notice it. The tick’s saliva contains an anesthetic-like substance that numbs your skin so you may not feel the bite. The ticks that spread Lyme are typically no larger than a sesame seed (or the size of a period at the end of a sentence). It is thought that nymphs infect more humans than adult ticks because they are so hard to see. The Blacklegged Tick In the United States,

Lyme Disease Facts and Statistics

329,000 new cases each year in the US Lyme disease is one of the fastest growing infectious diseases in the US and Western Europe. In September 2015, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revised their estimates, indicating that more than 329,000 new cases were contracted each year in the US — an increase of up to 10 times what was previously believed. Half a million patients struggling with long-term late-stage Lyme Reported in all 50 US states and more than 65 countries worldwide The disease which was first discovered in New England (Lyme, CT) has been expanding its footprint across the country with hot spots in the northern midwest and on the coast in California. Reported C

Biofilms and Lyme Disease

Biofilms that form in the human body are up to ten thousand times more resistant to antibiotics than free-floating bacteria, making them very difficult to treat medically. These biofilms are responsible for the extreme persistence of many difficult to treat illnesses like Legionnaire’s disease, Staphylococcus aureus (“Staph”), and infectious bronchitis, that can trouble patients with frustrating symptoms for years. Some years ago researchers showed that biofilms might also be helping the Lyme-causing bacteria evade treatment.(1) These findings have excited Lyme researchers who have since been exploring various treatment strategies designed to target the entire bacterial colony. If successful
