The spirochete is known as the most complex bacteria. Current findings confirm that it forms biofilms in order to hide from our immune system. Biofilms are organic material in the body that builds itself around bacteria, protecting it from various environmental stresses and from becoming eradicated. They are composed of calcium, magnesium, iron, mercury, lead, copper, and other trace metals.
Dr. Alan MacDonald discovered the role of biofilms, and that it conceals spirochetes from antibiotics and organic bactericedes. The purpose of conventional antibiotics is to fight against free-floating bacteria. However, once pathogens have created biofilm colonies, they are 1,000-times more resistant to antibiotics. Even if patients see improvement from antibiotic treatment, it is common for them to relapse due to the presence of biofilms. The National Institute of Health states that approximately 80 percent of chronic microbial infections are caused by biofilms. Furthermore, providing an explanation as to why Chronic Lyme sufferers remain ill after extensive antibiotic treatment.
Fry Laboratories is “State of the Art” in the molecular identification of organisms involved, testing, and treatment. Dr. Fry discovered a new co-infection that forms biofilms. It is known as Protomyxzoa Rheumatica, and is an extremely immunosuppressive microorganism. Dr. Fry has found the therapeutic approaches that assist in evading biofilms are chelation, “proteolitic” enzymes, and dietary restrictions. One must consider this co-infection when faced with Chronic Lyme disease.
