Good gracious!

Between the PE-1 treatments and MFTHR treatment, my poor face ( and some on my shoulders )is taking a beating with big fat ugly painful red ZITS coming up everywhere with white goop in them.

I did a photon treatment last night and I actually feel a tad better today, but I woke up with a ginormous zit the size of a dime on my nose! I look like Rudolph! [Frown] [Frown]

I have never has issues with zits til now. I never even got them as a teen.


Is anybody else doing MTHFR or PE-1 having zit issues?

Is this a detoxing effect?

I look so gross. [shake]

Hi Hambone,
I am interested in doing the PE-1 treatments, and trying to read up on it first.

I have the MTHFR mutation, and am taking methyl-folate under the direction of my wholistic MD. I've been doing it for about 6 months or so, and really have not noticed anything different.

He thought it would help improve my depression, but if it has, it must be real subtle, as in, I don't really notice a difference.

Which PE-1 treatment are you working on right now? It does sound like a detox process that you are going through.

Hang in there. The zits will come and go. Focus on your goal.

Best wishes.

I'm taking methyl-folate, as well.

Last night I used my Bartonella nosodes and a few drops of blood. I think it's my 12th treatment? I lost count. I've started doing them every two weeks, and I've noticed the past three times that the day after a photon treatment, the zits get worse.

BUT, the zit thing didn't really start happening until I started the MTHFR treatment along with the PE-1 about 2 months ago. Seems ( to me ) like it's a combination of both treatments that's causing this.


Thanks [Smile]

Hambone, this started in Germany for me, about the 3rd week of treatment. It still happens during treatment (mostly around the ears) but less and less.

I really wonder if they aren't parasites. Someone on my bionic thread (maybe Gael or Carol?) suggested rubbing plain yogurt on the zitmonsters. Try it - it helps me immensely!)

Hambone, I've been meaning to ask you, on a scale of 1 - 10 (1 being near death, 10 being super fine), what number were you before PE-1 treatment and what number are you now. And how many months since you started treatment?

No, it wasn't I who suggested yogurt.

I used LightWorks to heal zits.

Yes, the Bionic can heals zits too but I don't think I can treat zits and lyme at the same time as they are two different frequencies. So the yogurt works well in the meantime.

Before PE-1 - Pretty much bed/couchbound. Not dead but close, so I'll give it a 1.
A 2 on a good day. It was bad.


Now - I started PE-1 on July 5th. Twice a week at first ( too strong ) but now once every two weeks. My days aren't as bad. I can get up and piddle around. Head seems more clear. Feel less toxic. I'll give it a 4.5

I took a little over a month off in there to focus on detox. That's when I started MTHFR stuff. After starting methyfolate, the next photon treatment was when the zits popped up. They are on my forehead, nose, shoulders and back. I had a huge one just inside my ear a few weeks ago. Owie!! [Eek!]

Wow, that's great!!!! I'm so happy for you!!! Slow and steady wins the race!!!! YEAH for Hambone!!!!!!

That's exactly where I got the zits too - forehead, nose, shoulders in the beginning and now more chest, shoulders, back, ears and neck.

The reason I think parasites is because they are not normal zits, not white heads or black heads. They are large, sore welts (large for a zit that is) and they sometimes form circles.

I had a group last month behind my ear, on my neck that formed a circle and now a group on my chest toward the front of my shoulder that forms a circle.

The ear ones are killer, aren't they? Just the worst. I keep reminding myself that I'd much rather have welty zits the rest of my life (not that I will) than LD. How about it!

HaHa, neff!! [lol]

Just remembered that my daughter started using Fruit of the Earth 100% Aloe Vera Gel on her acne and it's clearing up incredibly fast.

I'm going to start using it for my welty zits and see if it helps.

I prefer looking old (not feeling old though)!

I can't help but wonder if the acne is from the effect of the photons on hormones .....

Hambone --

Glad to see your report of significant improvement any, goodness, didn't know you were that bad off before the PE-1.

Count me as another taking methylhydrofolate and not noticing anything from it. My pendulum says it is good for me, and I believe it, so I take it, but nothing obviously life-changing or face/skin-changing (like zits). On the other hand, my back has been covered with pimples for several months now, so, it might be harder to notice any effect.

Google any of these:

Photonicenergetics.com

Lumenergetics.com

Lymehub.com ( The information about PE-1 is great, but do NOT buy from this one. They charge $400+ plus for shipping which is INSANE! )

None of these sites can make any claims about healing Lyme or any disease because of FDA requirements, so you won't see any of that.

It was very bad. Going to a doctor's appointment was torture and took and act of God to get me there. I've canceled many appointments from being too sick to go. I never went ANYWHERE because I was too sick.

Two weeks ago I went to visit my grandmother at her house for two hours. Before PE1, that would never have happened. I know it seems like such a small thing to do, but I seriously had not been anywhere except a doctor for probably three years before that.

I don't want to make claims of being healed because I'm not(yet). I am still sick. But it is definitely better and I can do a little more than I used to. I have not backslidden from being off antibiotics since June, so something is working.

I woke up with fever blisters on my face today:(

I could feel them tingling and starting up yesterday ( the morning after a photon treatment ).

I hadn't had fever blisters in years.

I didn't shine the light on my face, but that's where they popped up.

This was the first time I used all of my Bartonella nosodes. That was the only thing I did different. That and a fresh vial of blood.

I'm starting to look like Quasimodo [shake]

I'm hoping it's just my body ridding itself of viruses and/or a healing thing.

At least I still feel a little better.

hey Quasi, that happened to me during my second 3 week treatment. All around my mouth.

I used the Bionic's local treatment for Herpes blisters right away and they were gone the next day. Haven't come back either. [Smile]

PM me if you want the details. I know the machines are so different.

I guess it's good we talk about the good, the bad and the butt ugly when doing photon treatment.


These fever blisters are on my left cheek and between my eyes!!! Of all places. I've never had them there before. Ever.

When I had them they were on my lip or under my nose.

I think I will do a nosode-less treatment on the frequency for skin issues and see what happens.

I think it's just the Herpes becoming opportunistic when the other bacterias are down, so I saw this as "the good", believe it or not. Of course, they are "the ugly" too.

Ah, this too shall pass, as my grandma always said.

To encourage you, I've been feeling the best I've felt since Germany, for the longes stretch of time since Germany. I'm quite excited about my progress!

Of course tomorrow is my 3rd treatment (out of 6 during the 3 weeks) which is when I usually herx, but that's OK. I've come to trust this for my body, always feeling that it's the right thing for me. And it's proving to be so zits and all.

If you feel confident the borrelia is gone, I would consider the tonic water to hold back the Babesia (per SixGoofy) while you continue treatment w/ blood nosodes. That seems to be working well for me too.

FIR sauna is for detoxification.

PE1 or Bionic 880 is for getting rid of borrelia.

Both are good. Both are infrared light, but at different ends of the infrared spectrum, so are used for entirely different reasons.

I didn't know what zits were, I just googled and found out they were pimples!!?

OK, my skin detox through pimples, specially after killing certain pathogens.

If they get bad or infected, the BEST for it, is simply 50% diluted thyme essential oil. Dilute with olive oil or any oil (like grapeseed). I also like jojoba oil. Test if you aren't allergic as thyme is EXTREMELY STRONG. You can also use oregano oil, but I prefer thyme.

Any skin infection would drop dead and dry with it. On certain delicate areas of your body (you know what I mean....), avoid it as it BURNS. To wash it out, use a neutral oil like grapeseed. Or soap, of course.

Washing with water will not work as well.

One way to help the skin detox, besides saunas and sweating, is to RUB oils, carrier oils like jojoba or any oil. Add a bit of lemon oil to the mix, and you will get some good results.

I never heard about rubbed oils helping to detox, but I have used them for quite long to know they help me.

Taking (ingestion) liquid enzymes also help me detoxing, plus CARDAMON in hot water.
