As someone who’s active in the alternative health field, I know many people whose daily life consists of going to the forest to find medicinal herbs and hunt for mushrooms. These walks are often accompanied by increased risks of being bitten by a tick carrying Lyme disease-causing bacteria.
But even people who go for a hike once a summer are not completely safe: for many people, being bitten by a disease-carrying tick is simply the luck of the draw.
Sure, there are natural tick repellants, and you can keep most of your body covered with clothes for protection, but there is no 100% guarantee.
For most nature lovers, like myself, this is not enough to stop us from exploring the woods. And as someone who likes to be prepared and educated on what to do, one day I thought to myself – what if?
A true natural Lyme Disease treatment
One possible answer came from an unexpected place — a true natural Lyme Disease treatment success story about a conventional doctor, Dr. Bill Rawls.
After spending fifteen years of his life practicing modern medicine, Dr. Rawls lost faith in it after being diagnosed with Lyme Disease. He later found what worked wonders for him in the alternative world and now advocates this treatment protocol for others.
His story is important for multiple reasons. It is personal as Dr. Rawls describes in detail his symptoms, diagnosis, and healing timeline. He also explains from his years of experience with pharmaceuticals, why – at least when it comes to Lyme – antibiotics do not work, and how he found legitimate proof that alternative medicine does.
He confirms why most people going the conventional route never fully recover – modern medicine simply does not understand Lyme Disease, he says.
This is his story.
Conventional Doctor Finds Lyme Disease Treatment Through Alternative Medicine
Dr. Rawls was originally diagnosed with fibromyalgia, but later found out that he has Lyme Disease. In his late 40s at the time, he eventually realized that all of the symptoms of Lyme disease were there. After being bitten by a tick one July, he had a bull-eye reaction at the bite site – a clear sign of Lyme, which a test later confirmed. He also had:
-Tingling in the hands
-A burning sensation in his feet
He describes the feeling as having a horrible flu every day of your life.
These symptoms lasted for years as Dr. Rawls looked for the answer to his issues in modern medicine.
Antibiotics caused him to feel nauseous and generally horrible, and did nothing to affect the Lyme Disease. When researching more into it, Dr. Rawls found out something shocking — no clinical study has ever shown any real benefit of antibiotics when used to treat chronic Lyme.
Modern medicine has no other answer except prescription medications that treated the symptoms of Lyme disease, not the Lyme disease itself.
“My faith in the medical system diminished,” he writes on his website, Rawls M.D.
His search expanded into all of the existing alternative methods, from Rife machines to natural herbal therapy. He analyzed all available options based on cost and available scientific evidence.
What he found to be the most compelling was information from Stephen Buhner’s book, “Healing Lyme.” Dr. Rawls describes Buhner’s approach as “logical and based on sound scientific evidence.” While still a little skeptical, he gave the protocol provided in the book a try, and to his surprise – it worked.
In just weeks, Dr. Rawls felt less pain and many of his symptoms subsided. In three months, he writes that he “felt human again.” With each new month he felt better and better, and in a few years came as close as he thinks it is possible to a complete recovery.
“I was able to recover my health completely — the things that I learned along the way changed my life forever,” he writes.
What we can learn from the doctor’s story:
“It’s not uncommon for people to harbor Borrelia and not know it.”
Lyme Disease is commonly transmitted by nymphal ticks, which are as small as a pin. You can get bitten without knowing it or ever noticing the tick. Many people also experience no or mild symptoms, which may be similar to other diseases and can be ignored. If the person’s immune system is working well, it may be fighting off the Borrelia microbes (that cause Lyme) for years.
The good news is – it is rarely life-threatening, but it can cause some life-changing symptoms that need to be addressed.
“Antibiotics are not necessarily a good treatment for chronic Lyme disease.”
Intense and long-term antibiotics did not help Dr. Rawls, and he found multiple reasons for their failure. Many of these reasons have to do with how Borrelia acts in the body.
Borrelia is an evasive microbe that is very hard to kill. It grows slowly over time and becomes parts of the microbiome in the body. Meanwhile, antibiotic use destroys the microbiome even more, and at the same time disrupts the proper immune system function needed to keep fighting off this disease.
Treating Lyme Disease using herbs with antimicrobial properties works (with or without antibiotics).
Dr. Rawls was pleasantly surprised when The Buhner protocol began to work in just weeks. Intrigued by this discovery, the doctor started researching other potent herbs and came to the following conclusions:
-Herbs work because of their numerous antimicrobial properties.
-It is important to use different herbs to create synergy.
-They boost the immune system needed to heal.
-Herbs support a balanced microbiome (something that antibiotics destroy).
The Buhner Protocol Explained
The Buhner Protocol is said to have a success rate of about 75%. Another doctor suggests that for people who do not answer to the protocol likely have another condition called kyptopyrroluria (KPU) – severe mineral deficiency, which needs to be addressed first.
For those people who have success with The Buhner Protocol, here is how it works:
-By supporting the collagens in the body, preventing their damage by Lyme bacteria
-By supporting the proper functions of the immune system
-By removing inflammation in the body
-By treating Lyme Disease’s numerous symptoms
-And finally, by killing the Lyme bacteria itself
It may be surprising, but the protocol is quite simple and mainly consists of three herbs:
Cat’s Claw: stimulates the immune system, and supports the central nervous system, while fighting off infection.
Japanese Knotweed: provides aid for the central nervous system, while killing the Lyme bacteria.
Eluthero: reduces inflammation, boosts the immune system, fights off fatigue, and supports heart health.
Other supplemental herbs, as well as dosage instructions, and a few reported side effects can be found on Buhner’s website.
There are multiple testimonials on the website, also thanking the protocol for “giving people their lives back.” Just like it happened for Dr. Rawls.
“As for the borrelia microbe, I may still harbor it. Whether anyone ever gets rid of it is a complete unknown. But the most important thing is that I’m living a normal life, free of symptoms and also free of many of the effects of aging that most people of my age experience,” Dr. Rawls writes.

I bet you can’t guess which muscle in your body is the #1 muscle that eliminates joint and back pain, anxiety and looking fat.
This “hidden survival muscle” in your body will boost your energy levels, immune system, sexual function, strength and athletic performance when unlocked.
If this “hidden” most powerful primal muscle is healthy, we are healthy.
d) Hip Flexors
Take the quiz above and see if you got the correct answer!
P.S. Make sure you check out the next page to get to know the 10 simple moves that will bring vitality back into your life!
To begin, I apologize for the dark nature of today's email.
However I promise what you'll discover today will be completely worth it.
Imagine a rotting corpse draped over your body from head to toe...
...suffocating tissue, restricting blood flow, damaging joints and infecting your healthy cells.
Shockingly, that nightmare is a reality for most:
64% of women and 74% of men carry too much body fat according to the National Institutes of Health.
It's choking their organs, assaulting their metabolism and sucking their energy dry.
But here's the worst part:
For most, this bodyfat has become "calorie-resistant":
It's completely unaffected by even the strictest diets... and most intense exercises.
This zombie fat is essentially... "dead tissue".
That's important for those who have 10, 25 or 50 or more pounds to lose...
AND for those who aren't technically overweight, but have what's called "pocket obesity"...
...unsightly patches of fat that cling to specific places, like:
just above your hips, lower belly, where your butt and legs meet... and even arms, neck and face.
However, there's good news:
Obesity researchers have now discovered a "metabolic jumper cable":
It jolts dead bodyfat back to life.
This allows your metabolism to burn it as calories and re-energize your entire body.
First though, here's the #1 reason why bodyfat becomes calorie-resistant:
It lacks blood flow. This has 3 effects:
- Not enough oxygen or nutrients reach fat cells, so they become unresponsive..
- Released fat can't be sent to other tissues to be burned, so fat cells suck it back in...
- 3) Metabolic hormones carrying the "burn calories" message don't reach the fat cell...
All this means one thing:
Your body can't transform into energy, the 135,000+ of calories the average person stores as fat!
You become a metabolic zombie: NO energy to think. NO energy to move. NO energy to motivate.
Update: calorie-resistant bodyfat can be now removed...
The discovery of this "metabolic jumper cable" can now reverse this process:
- It wakes up un-responsive bodyfat with a powerful calorie-burning hormonal jolt....
- It pops open fat cells, sucks out the fat, sending it off before its yanked back in...
- It shuttles fat to your brain, heart, lungs, kidneys - even your bones - to be burned as energy.
Not only do those layers of "zombie fat" start coming off, but your entire body just works better.
Plus, as your whole body burns more calories, those patches of pocket obesity whittle away.
This "metabolic jumper cable" isn't any exercise, machine or pill.
It's a little-known, calorie-burning hormone we all have... just waiting for the right spark to come alive.
It's not thyroid, leptin, ghrelin, insulin, adiponectin, HGH or any other "fat loss" hormone you may know.
And on this next page, you'll find out precisely how to unleash its calorie-burning power:
PS - Studies show that not only can healthy levels of this powerful calorie-burning hormone devour bodyfat and fortify soft muscle, but it can also reduce your risk of diabetes by 53.7%, a heart attack by 83.3% and stroke by 51.4%. Here's more of the scientific proof...
In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.
If you or a loved one is suffering from a debilitating condition-and you"re not sure what the culprit is-now's the time to find out...while you can still do something about it!

Is Bread Really the Staff of Life… or the Stuff of Disease?
For most us, there are few foods more comforting than bread.
Fluffy biscuits, crusty baguettes, flaky croissants… even a simple slice of toast topped with melted butter can taste like heaven.
And that smell… few scents are quite as pleasant as fresh bread baking in the oven.
But there is a lot of confusion as to where bread fits into a healthy diet.
The Bible practically commands followers to eat it: “Give us this day our daily bread…” The government put it at the base of the food pyramid. And for centuries, it has been called “the staff of life.”
Of course, there are some who disagree…
Well-known cardiologist, Dr. William Davis, calls wheat “the perfect chronic poison.”
And for a poison, we sure eat lots of it…
The average American consumes 55 pounds of wheat flour every year, making refined flour the #1 source of calories in the American Diet – a situation that nutrition expert Chris Kresser describes as, “a public health catastrophe.”
So, what is the truth about bread and wheat?
- Is it the perfect poison… or an essential daily food?
- Is “gluten-free” bread better for you than regular bread?
- And can you still eat bread… while maintaining a lean body and optimal health?
The answers to these questions may surprise you!

You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works.
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.

NOTE: I update these links often so please check back to see what's new!
1) Everyone knows green smoothies are healthy right? Have you heard of a “red” smoothie? If not, check out this story…
2) Forget what you've read about 10-day lemonade cleanses, 7-day detoxes with green juices and Gwyneth's gruel. All you need to do, and this is perfect for Saturday or or anytime really, is a simple 1-day cleanse.
3) This “hidden survival muscle” in your body will boost your energy levels, immune system, sexual function, strength and athletic performance when unlocked.

5) Turmeric is amazing. The problem is - It's hard to absorb!
6) Wonder why your stomach still sticks out even though you're hammering the core exercises every day? It's a common myth that bulging belly is due to weak abdominal muscles.
7) Even if you're the most active of athletes, you may still suffer from tight hip flexors due to the amount of time you spend each day planted to a chair.
Enjoy! Let me know how these work out for you. And if you run across anything I've missed please let me know.
