Can unpurified water cause neurological disease?

Can unpurified water cause neurological disease?

As a medical researcher and writer, I enjoy comparing and contrasting the incidence of different diseases across the world, and studying the factors that cause or contribute to those diseases. Knowledge is power, and the more that we know about why we are susceptible to certain diseases, the more that we can do to come up with solutions for some of them, including chronic Lyme disease.

World Life Expectancy is one interesting site that shows disease incidence by country. www.WorldLifeExpectancy.com.  Through my research here and elsewhere, I’ve observed that the United States has one of the highest incidences of neurological disease in the world – if not the highest for certain diseases. This includes diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and Multiple Sclerosis.  Interestingly, Lyme disease is often misdiagnosed as all of these conditions, and symptoms of Lyme can be similar to those of these illnesses. So is Lyme the cause of so much neurodegenerative disease in the US and Canada, and is it more prevalent here than elsewhere?

Or is it, as Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, shared in his chapter for my new book, New Paradigms in Lyme Disease Treatment: 10 Top Doctors Reveal Healing Strategies that Work, that there are more neurotoxins such as aluminum and glyphosate in the air, food and water supply here in North America than elsewhere–which are causing neurodegenerative disease? Indeed, Dr. Klinghardt has found through testing that many of his patients have high levels of glyphosate and aluminum toxicity, and he believes that it is these toxins that weaken the immune system and create a favorable growth medium for Lyme disease microbes. If we didn’t have so many toxins in our bodies, the microbes would not flourish as readily.

Dr. Klinghardt says in New Paradigms in Lyme Disease Treatment“In one experiment, my colleagues and I measured the heavy metal content of 120 of our patients’ blood using a procedure called “double membrane filtration apheresis” which is a new blood-washing procedure that is done in Japan and Germany and which is a method for separating blood components and/or toxins out of the blood. The results of that test showed that on average, our patients had 94 times more aluminum in their blood than any other toxin, including lead, cadmium, mercury or any other heavy metal or chemical. We also discovered that nanonized aluminum is the most abundant form of aluminum in the body, and is known to cause generalized inflammation, as well as endothelial (blood and lymphatic vessel lining) and mitochondrial dysfunction. It also creates an environment in which Lyme pathogens can flourish.”

Studies confirm Dr. Klinghardt’s findings that these toxins damage the body, especially the neurological system. For instance, in one study, the results of which were published in March 2017 in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology, concludes that “The unique quantitative data and the stunning images of aluminium in familial Alzheimer’s disease brain tissue raise the spectre of aluminium’s role in this devastating disease.”  The researchers report that the concentration of aluminum in the brains of those studied was extremely high, and that research suggests that aluminum plays a role in Alzheimer’s. This is true of other neurological diseases, as well.

In an interview with me, Dr. Klinghardt shared a method that he uses for detoxifying his patients from aluminum and other toxic heavy metals. Interestingly, it is a simple and relatively inexpensive method of treatment that he has found to be even more effective than traditional heavy metal chelating methods like DMPS or DMSA.  It basically involves taking some cilantro tincture, and then doing an ionic footbath 30 minutes later, which pulls heavy metals from the body. The cilantro mobilizes the metals out of the brain and neurological system, and the footbath pulls them out of the body. This process can be done several times per week.

Dr. Klinghardt learned about the cilantro-footbath method for heavy metal chelation from German neurologist Margareta Griesz-Brisson, a Harvard graduate who lives in Germany and England. According to Dr. Klinghardt in New Paradigms in Lyme Disease Treatment“…Dr. Griesz-Brisson conducted an experiment on 20 patients to determine what detoxification agents would be most effective for removing heavy metals from their bodies. She discovered that when the patients regularly took cilantro tincture and combined that with an ionic footbath, that this dramatically increased the amount of mercury, lead, cadmium, nickel and especially aluminum (basically everything toxic) that the patients excreted in their urine and hair.”

Dr. Klinghardt claims that he has had better results removing toxic heavy metals from his patients with this simple procedure than with traditional chelating agents like DMSA, EDTA and DMPS. Step by step instructions for how to do the footbath can be found in New Paradigms in Lyme Disease Treatment. 

In addition, Dr. Klinghardt gives his patients natural substances to help detoxify them of glyphosate, a dangerous chemical that also causes neurodegeneration. It is found in abundance in our food supply because it is sprayed on crops, and is a key ingredient of Monsanto’s herbicide product Roundup.  The natural substances that Dr. Klinghardt has found to help turn on the body’s natural detoxification mechanisms, and better enable it to remove glyphosate include humic and fulvic acids, and three types of berries; namely, pomegranate, the North American plum and acai.

Heavy metal and glyphosate toxicity may not be the primary cause of symptoms in many people with Lyme disease; however, if it is true that these toxins contribute to neurological disease and enable Lyme pathogens to flourish in the body—and research seems to indicate that they do—you may find that it’s helpful to remove them from your body and to steer cleer of their sources, as much as possible, by avoiding conventionally-processed food and unpurified water.

Doing so may help to prevent more serious manifestations of chronic Lyme disease, such as dementia, or MS-like or Parkinson-like symptoms.  Lyme disease, heavy metals, glyphosate and other toxins can be a setup for serious neurological illness, but by practicing detoxification as we treat the microbes, we can all reduce our body burden of these toxic compounds. So let’s spread the word, so we can take the United States off the map as a foremost nation of neurological disease in the world.
