I wish there was a magic bullet when it came to Lyme disease treatment, sadly if it exists it’s being very elusive! However, there is a new treatment that is showing promise – it’s a medication called disulfiram, also known as Antabuse. It’s actually a medication that is given for alcohol abuse, since it gives the taker a horrible hangover with just a small amount of alcohol. That is the deterrent to drinking while taking it. But it seems that disulfiram also has antimicrobial properties and has shown efficacy against Borrelia burgdorferi and possibly co-infections too.[Read more…]
I’ve been receiving a lot of questions regarding the HCG diet recently, so I decided to go live on Facebook to share my thoughts on the HCG diet, and whether or not I recommend it.

How to lose 10-15 pounds safely in 23 days!Posted by The Naturopathic Mama on Friday, June 14, 2019
WHAT IS THE HCG DIET?
The HCG diet is based on the work of Dr. ATW Simeon, who discovered that the true cause of obesity and being overweight is an abnormally operating hypothalamus. This causes intense and constant hunger, low metabolism, food cravings, and abnormal excess fat storage in problem areas of the body.
The HCG protocol combines a strict and specific diet with a small daily amount of the hormone HCG given either sublingually or by injection. This combination stimulates the hypothalamus to release abnormal fat deposits in the body, thus allowing the body to lose massive amounts of this stubborn fat quickly. This results in a dramatic reshaping and re-sculpting of the body while retaining important structural fat and muscle mass. The protocol is equally effective for both men and women.
I offer both injectable HCG and sublingual homeopathic drops.
HOW LONG IS THE PROTOCOL?
The program is a minimum of 23 days for those wanting to lose less than 20 lbs. Those with more than 20 lbs to lose can either extend the protocol out to 40 days or repeat the 23-day cycle after a 6-week break. Dr. Nicola will work with you at the end of your protocol to make sure you maintain your great results.
WHAT ARE THE LONG TERM RESULTS?
The protocol resets the abnormal hypothalamus condition, thus eliminating constant hunger, eliminating food cravings, increasing metabolism, and normalizing the hypothalamus so that the body does not abnormally store high amounts of fat in the secure problem areas in the future. Of course, healthy habits must be adopted to maintain weight loss, however the resetting of the hypothalamus is key in keeping the weight off. Having done the protocol myself, I have discovered some of the secrets of maintaining weight loss while boosting overall long-term health.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE HCG DIET:
I have tried to lose weight for two years. I have tried everything with no success. I had actually just about given up, then Dr. Nicola suggested I try the HCG protocol. Well, I have been on it for almost 20 days and I feel great and I am not too tired or hungry. I have a lot of energy. The best part of all is I have lost just over 13 pounds!!!! Amazing. I love it and I am looking forward to the next twenty days!

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that plays many roles within the body. We must get our vitamin C from external sources – we cannot produce it within our own bodies. Vitamin C is found in many fruits and vegetables including oranges, bell peppers, kiwi fruit, spinach, kale and broccoli. The benefits of vitamin C include acting as an antioxidant, supporting the immune system, supporting cardiovascular health and supporting healthy connective tissue. Some people also use vitamin C to induce bowel movements if they are struggling with constipation.[Read more…]
