Glutathione and Lyme disease
Best results from this regime are obtained when one is on a low glycemic diet such as a candidia albicans diet to minimize the formation of yeast in the body.
* Weakness or paralysis in your face muscles.
* A lack of energy that does not get better.
* Trouble focusing your thoughts.
* Tingling and numbness in your hands, feet, and back.
* Poor memory.
In my case I contracted Lyme disease through skin parasites. I controlled it many years with a diet--the King diet--which is necessary to control the parasites. As I won the battle against the parasites, I went off the diet and the swelling and joint pain in my knee became debilitating and unbearable.
1. Glutathione supplements--they are inexpensive but get destroyed in the stomach and are basically useless.
2. Intravenous injections--they cost approximately $125 each. Glutathione, however, is a large tripeptide molecule and it's difficult for it to cross the cellular membrane to get into the cells where the toxins accumulate. Plus you need more than one shot a month.
3. Skin Patch by Light Wave--approximately $70/month, but only boosts glutathione in the blood stream. Again it doesn't get the glutathione into the cell where most of the toxins are.
4. Immunocal--a whey drink costing about $70/month. This product does boost glutathione in the cell. However, the percent increase is nominal and there are a lot of calories in the whey drink for those who are weight conscious. Obviously those with whey allergies can not take this product.
5. OSR #1--Prescription only at about $200/mo. This is actually a chemical antioxidant and detoxify er. It does operate in the cells themselves and serves to preserve glutathione (keep it from getting used up) for glutathione's other functions. The issue is that there are no clinical studies other than on animals. What it's long term effect might be with humans is unknown.
6. NAC (N acetylcysteine)--an inexpensive nutrient $15/month that does boost intra-cellular glutathione. The problems are that without proper nutritional balance it could cause kidney stones, it doesn't work for everyone and it's percent boost in glutathione levels is limited.
7. Max GXL--approximately $79/mo. A clinical double blind, placebo controlled crossover study on humans indicates an increase of 276% glutathione intra cellularly in two weeks. It should not be taken with those with organ transplants and those sensitive to certain shell fish (not all) and certain mushrooms (not all) may have a problem.
