The Role of Dysbiosis and Chronic Infections on Cognitive and Psychological Health – Nafysa Parpia

This podcast is part of the Collective Insights Podcast series through the Neurohacker Collective. In this podcast, Daniel Schmachtenberger interviews Nafysa Parpia, ND about the role of the gut in illness and health. You can see a full transcript of the podcast on the Neurohacker webpage.

“Functional and integrative medicine that is heart centered guides how I treat my patients with complex chronic illness. Biochemical imbalances, epigenetic expression, toxin exposure, microbial exposure and emotional imbalance are often key in unraveling the mystery of and treating chronic illness. Each of these aspects is different for each patient. Thus, with compassionate listening and cutting edge laboratory tests, I can create treatment plans that are highly individualistic and healing.” – Nafysa Parpia, ND


New Lyme Disease Research At University Of New Haven – Fox News

Watch the Brief Video From Fox News

Eva Sapi and Phyllis Mervine on FoxDr. Eva Sapi, an associate professor of cellular and molecular biology at the University of New Haven, and Phyllis Mervine, founder and president of, talk about some new research about the disease and what we can learn from Sapi’s work. recently contributed $150,000 to help fund Sapi’s research. Almost a third of the money was raised through small donations from an online fundraising website. The money came from many people who either have Lyme disease or have a loved one who does., based in California, was founded in 1989 and advocates for the rights of lyme disease patients, educates about tick-borne disease and supports research. It maintains a nationwide network of online support and advocacy groups.


Part II Cystic Borrelia and Related Topics Including RoundBody Infections of the Brain

Published on Jul 21, 2013

Cystic Borrelia are under appreciated in borrelia biology. This Lecture discusses the formation of Cystic Borrelia, and the Pathological effects in the human body which are associated with Cystic borrelia, Especially in the Brain. Congential hydrocephalus caused by Gestational borreliosis [ 3 cases in world literature ] are reviewed in Detail.
Discussion of the possibility of motility in Cystic borrelia is correlated with Electron Microscopyof borrelia Cystic forms. The String of Pearls form of borrelia is illustrated and the identification of Borrelia String of Pearls forms in human blood by Profesor Morten Laane is illustrated. Round bodies associated with various Nerodegenerative Disorders in the Human [ ALS, Parkinson’s, Cortical Lewy body Dementia. CorticoBasal Degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease, FrontoTemporal Dementia] are correlated with parallel observations of Round Body Borrelia Invading Human Brain neurons in a case of Alzheimer’s disease. A New paradigm of Round body Neuropathology is suggested for further Study as evidence of Invasive Cystic borrelia microbes. This Paradigm would shift the classification of Neurodegenerative disorders containing Round Intra-neuronal bodies from Idiopathic in Cause to Infectious Diseases of the Human Brain.

NonSpiral Borrelia Part 1 Explanation of Shape Shifting and Form Metamorphosis of Spirochetes

Published on Jul 17, 2013

Alan MacDonald

Spirochetes are Expected to present as spiral or corkscrew shaped profiles. This idea comes from Textbook depictions. Spiral profiles are ,in fact, only ONE form of many other Alternate PERFECT spirochetal Forms ; These Include Round body Spirochetes [Cystic spirochetes], Granular dot like Spirochetes, Biofilm Community Spirochetes, and Liposomal {bleb -like] Spirochetes.

All of the Above Spirochetes are PERFECT.

All of the Above Spirochetes are capable of producing injury in the human Host, Shape shifting is an adaptation of the Spirochetes to survival in Adverse conditions. All Non-Spiral spirochetes are capable of regeneration the Spiral form depicted in Textbooks.


The Biology of Lyme Disease: An Expert’s Perspective

This is for the detail oriented, not for general information, so don’t worry if it is too much to understand. GMA

Published on Jul 20, 2013 on Youtube

This is a 30 minute video with Dr. Alan MacDonald, a retired M.D. and board certified in Anatomic Pathology and Clinical Pathology. This revealing interview from May 2013 (1 of 3) covers many of the controversies associated with Lyme disease:

– Chronic lyme disease
– Alzheimer’s and Lyme disease: microscopy and culturing brain tissue
– How Borrelia changes and survives within the human host
– The many strains and variations in Borrelia, how this relates to flawed testing

The complete interview is available from The Arthroplasty Patient Foundation.

Dr. Eva Sapi’s Research on Lyme Biofilms

Dr. Eva Sapi, of the University of New Haven,has already made great strides in Lyme disease research. Now she’s poised take it to the next level.

With your help, has raised enough money to purchase Dr. Sapi a vital piece of equipment—an atomic force microscope.

We don’t want to stop there! She’s going to use that microscope to investigate biofilms—a protective barrier that makes it hard to kill off Lyme bacteria. wants to continue the fundraising campaign to help support this important work. A generous donor has agreed to match dollar for dollar (up to $10,000!) whatever they raise to support Dr. Sapi’s biofilm research.  [Read more…]

Maybe this will provide new options in treatment for Lyme disease, MARCoNS (methicillin resistant conegative staph), sinus infections, heart disease, chronic gastrointestinal issues, and many other illnesses that we see in our patients here at GMA?
