[Smile] BREAKING NEWS ON LAURICIDIN!! [Smile]

A pubmed peer reviewed study published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology JUST 2 WEEKS AGO --- shows that Monolaurin (Lauricidin is a brand name) is effective against Lyme biofilm, roundforms and spirochetes in vitro!!

(I guess I better remember to take my 3 scoops of monolaurin per day... I was just taking one scoop, but still think it helps.) Monolaurin has been shown to be helpful in Alzheimers-- and thanks to Dr. MacDonald, we now know that Alzheimers is just spirochete biofilm inside Amyloid plaque.

This article also shows that a thing called Baicalein kills all three forms of Borrelia also-- but what is it? (Its a Japanese Herbal that I have never heard of before)

Peer Review Science:
In vitro evaluation of antibacterial activity of phytochemicals and micronutrients against Borrelia burgdorferi and Borrelia garinii, by Goc A1, Niedzwiecki A1, Rath M1.
LINK: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26457476

Abstract
AIMS:
"Little is known about the effects of phytochemicals against Borrelia sp. causing Lyme disease. Current therapeutic approach to this disease is limited to antibiotics. This study examined the anti-borreliaea efficacy of several plant-derived compounds and micronutrients.

METHODS AND RESULTS:
We tested the efficacy of 15 phytochemicals and micronutrients against three morphological forms of Borrelia burgdoferi and Borrelia garinii: spirochetes, latent rounded forms and biofilm. The results showed that the most potent substances against the spirochete and rounded forms of Borrelia burgdorferi and Borrelia garinii were cis-2-decenoic acid, baicalein, monolaurin, and kelp (iodine); whereas, only baicalein and monolaurin revealed significant activity against the biofilm. Moreover, cis-2-decenoic acid, baicalein, and monolaurin did not cause statistically significant cytotoxicity to human HepG2 cells up to 125 μg ml-1 , and kelp up to 20 μg ml-1 .
CONCLUSIONS:
The most effective antimicrobial compounds against all morphological forms of the two tested Borrelia sp. were baicalein and monolaurin. This might indicate that the presence of fatty acid and phenyl groups is important for comprehensive antibacterial activity.

SIGNIFICANCE AND IMPACT OF THE STUDY:
This study reveals the potential of phytochemicals as an important tool in the fight against the species of Borrelia causing Lyme disease." [hi] [hi] [hi] [hi] [Smile]

Fascinating info, thank you.

Monolaurin/lauricidin is derived from coconut oil. I have used coconut oil for years as a hair conditioner and moisturiser, and my Lyme has been milder than the majority of chronic Lyme patients that I know.

Not that my one case necessarily means anything, but it's interesting that there are many anecdotal cases of coconut oil helping people with Alzheimer's.

We now know for sure that Borrelia biofilms are a cause of at least a proportion of Alzheimer's cases - maybe a very high one.

See www.spirodementia.wordpress.com for Dr MacDonald's latest findings re this.

Yep-- the Alzheimers connection to spirochete biofilm now means that we Lyme patients -- from mild to severe cases---have run out of time to waste.

We don't have the luxury of doing anything other than banding together to finance our own treatment research. Since researching (and approving) drugs is too expensive-- we must begin testing thousands of tropical plant compounds against all three morphologies of borrelia, in vitro in an organized way.

Elena---would you have any idea about roughly how much it costs to test one compound against borrealia biofilm, cysts and live spirochetes? Do you think Dr. MacDonald might be able to tell us what the cost would be?

This study on monolaurin and borrelia was done by the "Dr. Rath Institute" perhaps they could be hired to test more compounds?

And thanks for the tip on the coconut oil for skin--- Im going to try using just coconut oil on my skin-- since I have developed mild Morgellons over the last 5 years-- on top of the Lyme!! Sapi believes that Morgellons may be a genetic fusion of Lyme and the Bovine digital dermatitis spirochete.

It does seem like a lot of chimeras are happening-- which is frightening. This is related to either the presence of agrobacterium(a plant virus used in genetic engineering which occasionally infects humans) or of bartonella, which can facilitate horizontal gene transfer. When these bugs are together in a biofilm complex it is a witches brew... this is why I have included so many compounds that inhibit quorum sensing/biofilm on my other thread -- Spirochaeticidal Compounds..

Buhner uses Chinese Skullcap in some of his protocols. Baicalein is one of the components of Scutellaria baicalensis a.k.a. Chinese Skullcap.

Baicalein has good anti candida properties as well:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19734718

Though Buhner seems to use it primarily as an antiviral.

So perhaps chinese skullcap is an excellent addition to lyme/candida treatment protocols?
