Thank you Lesa at Dr Roni DeLuz’s Holistic Retreat Center for offering me this amazing list of Lyme related upcoming events, bringing help and information to millions. Please read this through, as I am certain at least one of them will speak to you.
I am delighted to announce I will be teaching at the Nov 11-15 Lyme Celebrity Detox Retreat with Dr Roni. I will be bringing my profound skills of teaching participants how to move to their soul’s center and access inner healing energies we all bear, but have forgotten how to use. This is life-altering information, and it is my honor to work with those of you coming to the retreat. Healing includes more than physical doctoring. We must align within.

4). My dear friend and filmmaker Richard J. Longland whose many accomplishments include: Founder & Principal The Arthroplasty Patient Foundation, Inc. Global Discussion on Spine Health & Arthroplasty Getting Back on Their Feet Film BiofilmCommunity.org; Why Am I Still Sick Film; has this info to pass on …”Eva Sapi, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Biology and Environmental Science at the University of New Haven, hosted my visit 2008. She collaborated with Dr. Alan MacDonald, retired pathologist and Borrelia career researcher, to discover and prove that Borrelia creates biofilms, as microbes have been doing for three billion years. http://youtu.be/fJqTDnbL7Yo
Using video microscopy, Dr. Sapi’s grad student David Luecke explains in this video how DNA from the Borrelia burgdorferi strain B31 “fluoresces” or glows an eerie green. Any green life forms you see in their various states originate from the B31 strain of Borrelia – one of 100+ strains known. Prior to Dr. Sapi’s pioneering efforts researchers dismissed Borrelia biofilms. As well, Borrelia biofilm would ruffle the feathers of the IDSA, NIH, CDC and (most) insurance companies, as it would spell out an obvious, scientific syllogism for neuroborreliosis – known previously as chronic Lyme Disease. Later, they learned that Sapi et al were correct — that the standard BSK media could be enriched with collagenase (which humans have abundantly) and proved to be ideal for growing spirochetal, slimy communities! This video shows four different life forms alive in the community: spirochetes, cysts, granular and of course the biofilm community itself. Biofilms protect the microbial community from the immune system and antibiotics, which enable infections to live indefinitely inside us. Hence, chronic Borreliosis (chronic Lyme disease). Note: you may have seen this before in low resolution. I offered it to the producers of Under Our Skin years ago (free of charge). In this HD version, I included some amazing new high res AFM photos and additional explanations. Special thanks to David Luecke, who provided these slides, and of course to the Sapi-MacDonald team!
Richards latest film on biofilms entitled “Why Am I Still Sick?” can be purchased for $ 25.00 with all proceeds going to LACC (Lyme Awareness of Cape Cod) contact me for details.
