  7. Together for Lyme SolutionsPart 1: My Story • Share and encourage dialogue for pragmatic solutions: Problem solving for recovery through a lens of ecology & integrative systems thinking => fresh perspective on Lyme disease

  8. My Healing Journey From Stanford PhD… to food stamps… and back! • 1999 tick bites • Decade of mystery symptoms & increasing illness • 2009 collapse with late-stage, neurological Lyme disease

  9. My Healing Journey From Stanford PhD… to food stamps… and back! • Healing is a full-time job • Lifestyle overhaul, which not all patients will do (diet, EMFs, etc.) • Integrated approach with emotional grief of loss & surrender

  10. My Healing Journey From Stanford PhD… to food stamps… and back! • Healing is a full-time job • Lifestyle overhaul, which not all patients will do (diet, EMFs, etc.) • Integrated approach with emotional grief of loss & surrender Note: Lyme patients can be very skilled at hiding symptoms by showing themselves only on “good” days... …until there are not enough hours in a day to “fake it” Volatile symptoms Volatile disease

  11. My Healing Journey What can one patient, or one practitioner, do? Be the change! YOU are the leader you’ve been waiting for! Steve Schneider

  17. Together for Lyme SolutionsPart 2: Oligotherapy • Share and encourage dialogue for pragmatic solutions: Problem solving for recovery through a lens of ecology & integrative systems thinking => fresh perspective on Lyme disease

  18. Oligotherapy Using minerals & trace elements as catalysts to maintain physiological functions and restore the body’s natural vitality • Healthy diet is the essential foundation of overall good health • Today’s soil quality & food depleted of essential minerals • Modern pollution & chronic stresses compound problem • Mineral supplementation, in proper form, catalyzes healing

  19. Oligotherapy Minerals and Trace Elements • Human body: 60%-70% solution of minerals & trace elements • Our hydro-mineral composition and relative proportionsare the key • Ocean water a natural source of ALL mineral forms: Ionic, Colloidal, Chelated, Carbon-Organo-Complexed • In 3 billion years Nature found a way to utilize ALL the elements

  20. Oligotherapy & Matrix Matters Broader context from an evolutionary biology, systems perspective 3 Billion Years of Evolution in the Primordial Ocean PRIMORDIAL OCEAN Animal Species Emerges From The Sea Begin Landmass Formation Cellular Life Begins “Water” Covers Earth

  21. RevolutionaryBiologist Oligotherapy & Matrix Matters Broader context from an evolutionary biology, systems perspective “Theonlywaycellularlifecouldleavetheoceanwastotaketheoceanwithit.” • RENÉ QUINTON • “The French Darwin”

  22. All life is cellular All living things are from 50% to over 90% “biological water” The major elements of covalently bonded bio-molecules are C, H, N, O, P, S There is a universal set of small molecules: sugars, amino acids, fatty acids, phospholipids, vitamins and coenzymes Principal macromolecules are proteins, lipids, carbohydrates & nucleic acids There is a universal type of membrane - the lipid bi-layer The flow of energy in living things involves the formation and hydrolysis of phosphate bonds (i.e. ATP) The metabolic reactions of any living species is a subset of a universal network of intermediary metabolism (i.e. glycolysis, Kreb Cycle, electron transport chain) Every replicating cell has genome made of DNA that stores genetic information read out in a sequence of RNA & translated into proteins All living cells have ribosomes, which are the sites of protein synthesis All replicating biological systems give rise to altered phenotype due to mutated genotypes Reactions that proceed at appreciable rates in all living cells are catalyzed by enzymes Oligotherapy & Matrix Matters Seawater: Life’s Architect

  23. The General Case: Original Quinton Plasma Plankton Bloom Harvested – Never Heated Oligotherapy • Seawater – Complex solution of the Periodic Table and “marine factors”. • “Amniotic Fluid” of cellular life • Pischinger: “We now carry the Primordial Sea around within us.” • In Stone: “Terrain is Everything” • Isotonic the medicine – Hypertonic the nutrient • All mineral forms: Ionic, colloidal, chelated, carbon-organo-complexed • Re-establish elements in the milieu interieurto marine “inheritance” Disclosure: I have no financial stake in the Original Quinton company or products but recently began collaborating with their staff for on-going research, including support for my participation in the 2013 Santa Fe Institute Complex Systems program. www.originalquinton.com

  24. Oligotherapy & Matrix Matters Pragmatic solution: Original Quinton • Composition of Quinton marine plasma near identical to human “biological terrain” • Quinton Isotonic • Extra-cellular fluid • Blood plasma “The tides are in our veins” - Robinson Jeffers Disclosure: I have no financial stake in the Original Quinton company or products but recently began collaborating with their staff for on-going research, including support for my participation in the 2013 Santa Fe Institute Complex Systems program. www.originalquinton.com

  25. Oligotherapy & Matrix Matters “The Matrix Matters!” as we say in ecology; in medicine, it has other names: Internal Matrix Liquid Matrix Internal Terrain Biological Terrain Internal Ocean Milieu Interieur Internal Environment … “The internal environment is then the primordial physiological basis of the organism, its‘liquid matrix’.” - Dr. Walter Cannon(Harvard, author of The Wisdom of the Body)

  26. Oligotherapy & Matrix Matters “The Terrain is Everything” - Claude Bernard (1850) Still true today because the Primordial Ocean became our internal terrain 60-70% of us are functional fluids evolved from seawater

  27. Oligotherapy & Matrix Matters To support the Matrix, it’s all about rates of change… Think healing PROCESS! Poor health is like a degraded ocean

  28. Oligotherapy & Matrix Matters To support the Matrix, it’s all about rates of change… Think healing PROCESS! Poor health is analogous to an ocean “Dead Zone” or atrophied estuary with algae overgrowth and depleted oxygen. With an environment this bad, not even the best doctors can save it. So, first, fix the system. Then, the fish/health can return.

  29. Oligotherapy & Matrix Matters To support the Matrix, it’s all about rates of change… Think healing PROCESS! My ocean health analogy = Dr. Cowden’s bathtub

  30. Together for Lyme SolutionsPart 3: Nano-Mineral Tx • Share and encourage dialogue for pragmatic solutions: Problem solving for recovery through a lens of ecology & integrative systems thinking => fresh perspective on Lyme disease

  31. Nano-Mineral Treatments Emerging technologies for new treatment frontiers Nanoparticles: particles <100nm diameter with new or enhanced size-dependent properties, compared with larger particles of the same material. NOT talking man-made chemicals or futuristic bio-nanorobots

  32. Nano-Mineral Treatments Emerging technologies for new treatment frontiers Nanoparticles: particles <100nm diameter with new or enhanced size-dependent properties, compared with larger particles of the same material. New possibilities when metals go nano… Exemplary metals with anti-microbial properties: silver, gold, copper, zinc, platinum, and palladium.

  33. Nano-Mineral Treatments Emerging technologies for new treatment frontiers • Nano-minerals 101: • Nano-structures exist naturally in nature, yet we only recently developed technology to detect • Ionic minerals are naturally nano-minerals • Nanotechnology modifies the surface-area-to-volume ratios of particles • Smaller sizes, greater reactivity • Trade-off between reactivity & instability • Greater reactivity, higher potential energies

  34. Medical History of Silver • Silver used topically & internally for 6,000+ years • Scientifically noted to purify water by 1869 • Colloidal silver used medicinally since 1860s, when coined term to describe silver suspended in a “stable, indeterminate state of matter” Bactericide with risk of argyria (turning blue)

  35. NanoSilver Potential Bactericide without risk of argyria (turning blue) • Nanosilverkills bacteria and lower-level organisms (not mammalian cells) by wreaking havoc in the structure of membrane surfaces. • All nanosilver is colloidal silver. • One nanoparticle binds to multiple Borrelia Burgdorferi (Bb) cells , the spirochetal, Gram negative bacteria causing Lyme disease (Ou et al. 2005). • Colloidal silver acts as a powerful catalyst with ability to attack one-celled organisms (i.e. bacteria, viruses, & fungi) by simultaneous ion and catalectic mechanisms (Ghazvini et al.), blocking respiration and causing the organism to suffocate and die. Qu L. et al., Visulaizingandhesion-induced agglutination of Escherichia coli with mannosyulated nanoparticles, J. NanosciNanotechnol. 2005 Feb; 5(2):319-22.

  36. NanoSilver Potential (continued) • “Silver kills bacteria by strangling them in a warm and moist environment. Highly bioactive silver ions bind with proteins inside and outside bacterial cell membranes, thus inhibiting respiration and reproduction” (Wasif and Laga 2009). • Nanosilverparticles attack particular microbes, using species-specific mechanisms (Song et al 2006, Ruparelia 2008). • Nanosilverprevents biofilm formation (Gibbins and Warner 2005).

  37. NanoSilver Potential (continued) • Antimicrobial mechanisms of nanosilver include: • Inhibition of cell wall synthesis, protein synthesis, & nucleic acid synthesis (Lara et al., 2010). • Cell-wall “pitting” (Choi et al., 2008). • Accumulation of silver nanoparticles in bacterial membrane (Elechiguerra et al. 2005). • On-going investigation required to fully understand mechanisms (Marambio-Jones & Hoek 2010).

  38. NanoSilver Potential (continued) • Antimicrobial properties of nanosilver in a variety of medical applications including: • Topical silver widely used in wound & burn treatment to prevent scarring & enhance healing. (Gibbins& Warner 2005). • Silver-containing dressings to combat MRSA (Thomas 2004). • Widely used in silver-based dressings & silver coated medicinal devices (e.g., nanogels, nanolotions, & catheters) (Rai 2009, Baratchi et al. 2009, Estevez & Erlichman 2011).

  39. NanoSilver Potential Application for Lyme & Tick-Borne Coinfections • Few studies, if any, with patients evaluate the efficacy of nanosilver to treat Lyme, specifically, and tick borne diseases, generally. • Nonetheless, anecdotal case studies (like me) & peer-reviewed studies on general antimicrobial efficacy suggest that nanosilvercan successfully treat Lyme infections—both alone and in combination with antibiotics—because of: • low risk • high effectiveness • microbes’ inability to evolve a silver-resistant form

  40. NanoSilver Potential Improved Antibiotic Efficacy • Laboratory studies demonstrate a synergistic antibacterial effects between nanosilver& antibiotics (Shahverdi 2007): • penicillin G • amoxicillin • erythromycin • clindamycin • vancomycin Shahverdi, A. R., Fakhimi, A., Shahverdi, H. R., & Minaian, S. (2007). Synthesis and effect of silver nanoparticles on the antibacterial activity of different antibiotics against Staphylococcus aureusand Escherichia coli. Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology and Medicine, 3(2), 168-171. May aid transport across blood-brain barrier and/or penetrate biofilms for increased antibiotic efficacy

  41. Medical History of Gold • Gold used topically & internally for 5,000+ years • Gold in dentistry ~4,500 years ago • Anti-inflammatory, used to treat sore joints in 1900s, as well as arthritis in 20th Century Side effects: Skin rash/sores, metallic taste, thinning hair

  42. NanoGold Potential Extremely good catalyst, acts as a semiconductor • Potential applications: • Rapid diagnosis technologies, including diagnosis of Lyme disease, rickettsioses, ehrlichioses, and anaplasmosis. • Cancer treatments without surgery, “nanobullets” that travel inside cancer cells and bind to internal structures to prevent cell division. • Telomeres extension for increased longevity & anti-aging • Synergisms with nanosilverfor increased antimicrobial properties • Synergisms with nanosilver to mitigate Lyme symptoms & inflammation responses, possibly prevent Herxheimer reactions New possibilities when metals go nano…
