The “Maintenance” Protocol
OK – now that you have gotten rid of the “active” form of Lyme disease that causes most of the problems, there is one final difficulty with Lyme disease. Most people don’t address it, but it is essential. We don’t want it coming back! The problem is:
Lyme spirochetes and bartonella have a
nasty ability to burrow into body cells!
They especially like nerve cells but will burrow into others as well. Unfortunately, when they burrow into the cells, antibiotics, the immune system and even monolaurin can’t get to them because the cell walls protect everything in the cell – including the bacteria!
Eliminating the active form of Lyme disease is fairly easy to do. It just takes time. However, even after you have eliminated the active Lyme disease and biofilms, these bacteria can stay alive inside the cells they’ve penetrated. They stay active inside the cells and will eventually kill the cells.
Then, they want to come out to multiply and build up again into what is called a “re-occurrence”. This has been extremely frustrating for patients, and their doctors as well.
Fortunately, our ‘Maintenance’ has worked for years!
It is pretty simple. The bacteria coming out into the blood system is actually good because now we can kill them!
After removing the active form of Lyme disease and the biofilms, a person can gradually reduce the Biofilm enzymes to nothing. Then, they can reduce the Monolaurin daily, usually 1 scoop/day (1 tsp. – 3,000 mg).
This allows the monolaurin to remain in the blood system (there are no side effects). When the Lyme spirochetes and/or bartonella come out of the cells, they encounter the monolaurin. The monolaurin can then kill them before they multiply and build up again. (This also includes new bites because the monolaurin in the blood can kill the bacteria before it can multiply.)
Other Helpful Products:
(These are NOT essential for Lyme disease. If they fit in your budget, one or more might be helpful for symptoms.)
1. Heavy Metal Detox (also helps reduce “herx” reactions)
One of the world‘s foremost Lyme disease researchers and lecturers, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, heavily emphasizes the importance of heavy metal removal in fighting Lyme’s Disease. (It is also recommended for Lyme’s sister disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.)
Detoxing is especially important for the heavy metals, which biofilms like to grab, as well as the toxins released by dissolving the bacteria biofilms. These toxins and heavy metals cause many of the illness effects and symptoms people experience from Lyme’s Disease (and CFS).
This is not an essential step for Lyme disease since Monolaurin and (the Enzymes) eventually deal with Lyme’s disease and any co-infections. However, it is an excellent aid to the body – and there is another good reason to use a Detox:
By attaching to the heavy metals and toxins,
it also helps reduce side effects by
helping our organs remove the toxins!
We recommend finding a detox formula that includes these all-important nutrients:
Glutathione, Chlorella, Malic acid, Cilantro, Milk thistle, Garlic extract, Alpha lipoic, TMG, MSM, & NAC.
(Note: these nutrients remove heavy metals, toxins and pesticides without upsetting the digestive system.)
Directions: Begin using the Heavy Metal Detox nutrients with the Monolaurin startup.

2. A Multi-Nutrient Foundation (general nutrients for the body)
Dr. Klinghardt (and many other doctors) also recommends using a great multi-nutrient supplement! A complete multi-vitamin/mineral/nutrient supplement forms a foundation to help the body add its own defenses to the battle. Dr. Klinghardt also emphasis the need for iodine – (we recommend a generous 175 mcg).

Dogs with Lyme disease: (monolaurin and monolaurin in a pet skin product can actually work for dogs too - against both diseases and skin conditions.)
