A consequence of pollution: Lyme disease

Formerly an airline pilot, Judith Albertat is a naturopath and has been dedicated for the past 10 years to deepening her knowledge and understanding of Lyme disease, from which she herself suffered. More generally, she is interested in chronic diseases, whose growth is promoted by our toxic environment. This lecture by Judith Albertat was recorded during the symposium "Choose the Living" organized by the Denis Guichard Foundation in Paris on April 14, 2018.

Lyme disease is a complex infectious pathology, generated by a bacterium, the borrelia. In addition to Lyme borreliosis, there are many co-infections that take advantage of a modified terrain to invade our body: environmental toxicity is the foundation for the development of infectious diseases. 70 to 100 years ago, there was little talk of chronic diseases but of acute diseases. New chronic diseases must be reconsidered in an environmental context. 

Lyme disease includes Lyme borreliosis in the 4 known forms that this bacterium can take: extracellular, intracellular, cystic and biofilms. All forms must be treated, as well as co-infections: bacteria, viruses, parasites and yeasts/mould.  

 What are the links with our toxic environment?  

Numerous scientific studies show that pesticides used in intensive agriculture weaken the rodents' immune system and promote the circulation of infectious agents. Rodents carry ticks, vectors of Lyme borreliosis. Pesticides also weaken the human immune system.  

Professor Eric Houdeau, Director of Research at INRA Toulouse, has clearly shown that food additives in food, drinks, medicines, food supplements... are first targeted at our intestine, then at the liver, kidneys and brain. 

Electromagnetic fields have deleterious effects, especially on people with dental amalgams. In contact with electromagnetic fields, these people will release mercury from their amalgams. 

The consequences of this toxic environment are chronic fatigue syndromes, behavioural disorders, developmental and attention disorders... A chronic inflammatory state. 

Toxic trace elements: lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, aluminium, titanium... are found in dental amalgams. These toxic substances in the teeth of a pregnant mother will transfer into the fetus. They are also found in water or, for example, aluminum in formula milk...

In a healthy ground and environment, Lyme borreliosis is not a problem since this bacterium has existed for 300 million years. We have always been able to deal with these germs in our bodies. But today, our indoor and outdoor environments are no longer able to fight this ever-increasing toxicity. 

How to treat Lyme disease? 

The overall infectious burden must be reduced by antibiotic therapy, essential oils, magnesium chloride, intravenous vitamin C, the well-known homeopathic isotherapies of Professor Albert-Claude Quemoun (secretions from our body from which homeopathic treatments are made), chlorine dioxide which gives remarkable results in autistic people and people with cancer. 

Parasitosis must be treated. A formidable enemy is candida albicans, a yeast that clings to our tissues. 

The overall toxic load must be reduced: healing requires a hypotoxic diet with organically grown foods, preferably biodynamics.

  • Assess our daily toxic environment, both domestic and professional, and decontaminate the oral cavity.
  • Repair the intestine that is our first brain: do not irritate it, remove toxic substances and do not add them. Microbes feed on carbohydrates.
  • Repair the ground and supplement with vitamins, nourish the cells.
  • Evaluate toxic trace elements: 2 years ago, this evaluation showed that I had 10 times more arsenic than the standard, 26 times more mercury, 7 times more lead. After 2 years of chelation with natural methods, I was able to remove these trace elements. 

We can detoxify the body. By modifying the diet and detoxifying the domestic environment of a young autistic girl in my care, the results are already remarkable.

It is necessary to gather all the skills and knowledge to get to the patient's bedside. 

Choosing the living also means changing our view of life. My Lyme disease has become for me an adventure that is the source of ongoing research, which is not yet over.
