Functional Heart Problems Caused by Underlying Lyme Disease!



The month of May is Lyme Disease Awareness month! A very common symptom of chronic Lyme disease is many and various heart problems, such as Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS).

It is fairly common for POTS patients to have a noticeable drop in blood pressure upon standing, but some POTS patients have no change or even an increase in blood pressure upon standing.

POTS patients often have hypovolemia (low blood volume) and high levels of plasma norepinephrine (from the adrenal glands) while standing, reflecting Autonomic Nervous System disregulation (dysautonomia) causing increased sympathetic nervous system activation.

Many POTS patients also experience fatigue, headaches, lightheadedness, heart palpitations, exercise intolerance, nausea, diminished concentration, tremulousness (shaking), syncope (fainting), coldness or pain in the extremeties, chest pain and shortness of breath.

The many heart and circulatory problems seen in POTS can be caused by Lyme Endocarditis as a result of metabolic toxins produced by the spirochetes (bacteria) of Lyme. The primary toxin identified through clinical research is the accumulation of ammonia (NH3) in the heart, brain, and other infected tissues.

While eliminating the toxins and the bacteria can create a favorable environment for the body to be restored, the POTS symptoms often remain.

In the following link I will be introducing and discussing the profound new innovation called NeuroCardial Synchronization™, that was developed at the Hansa Center to specifically address the heart and brain disturbances of POTS. This new therapy has resulted in complete resolution in all participants to date.

This hour long show can be heard on Federal News Radio at http://www.federalnewsradio.com/?nid=5. The show will be also be archived at the following link for later listening: http://ehlradio.com/ArchivedShows/Index.php 


Keep reading to learn how modern phonocardiograms have changed what is possible in diagnosing and treatment functional heart problems.

Although it is difficult to read this picture, the blue box at the top left shows what a normal phonocardiogram should look like. Each of the other boxes show some of the problems that can be found in a dysfunctional heart.



Phonocardiography, is the use of a high-definition, digital, electronic stethoscope, linked to a computer program in order to record the sounds of the heart. From these recordings we can identify problems in heart that are often undetectable using ECG's and other conventional heart tests. 

Phonocardiology, when used in tandem with the powerful testing ability of BioResonance Scanning™ is a system of treatment now called NeuroCardial Synchronization™(NCS). Since NCS is such a new innovation, a Google search will likely not get any hits on the topic. At this time NCS is only available at the Hansa Center for Optimum Health, in Wichita, Kansas.

Phonocardiology has the potential to identify problems in the heart arising from toxins, infections, hypoxia from poor hemoglobin synthesis, emotional and mental stress, structural, biochemical, and neurological problems. 

Correcting the problems identified on Phonocardiogram requires the doctor to determine what is interfering with the optimum structure and function of the problem area. This may be a musculoskeletal interference, a neuromuscular interference, an neuropsychological interference, a nutritional deficiency, a metabolic toxicity, allergy, just to name a few, but in all cases the treatments are using natural means to work to restore the optimum function and structure of what has gone wrong. No pharmaceuticals or invasive treatments are ever used by our doctors.

It appears that virtually every chronic illness has different heart problems associated with the illness. This shouldn't be a surprise when one considers that the heart plays such a huge role in regulating all of the DNA of the body, and is indeed secreting hormones that influence every tissue and organ in the body. 

People treated with have often stated that they experience not just a disappearance of their heart rhythm problems, but a greater sense of well-being on every level. As sense of well-being, peace, is the normal state of the heart that is functioning optimally.

At this time, our doctors are only working with people who are chronically ill, but who do not take pharmaceuticals for their heart. If you, like so many other people, abhor the idea of taking a pharmaceutical 
for the rest of your life to deal with a heart issue, NeuroCardial Synchronization may offer a better solution. 

If you have any heart problems, such as cardiac arrhythmia, dysautonomia, chronic fatigue syndrome, cognitive disturbances, or other chronic illnesses this may offer you a way out of the nightmare. Clinical outcomes have been very encouraging. Without the use of pharmaceutical drugs we have been able to correct almost every case of arrhythmia, valve regurgitation, and tachycardia, when there is no irreparable damage to the heart.

The technology used in this treatment is so new that we have not trained any doctors outside of the Hansa Center yet. NeuroCardial Synchronization™ is a technique that we have pioneered here at the Hansa Center. The really nice thing is that the repeat phonocardiology testing verifies the effect of the treatments within each office visit, so there is no "over glamorizing" of this process. It either works and you can see the change on your phonocardiogram during that same visit, or it doesn't which you can also immediately see. Thankfully we are almost always seeing impressive improvements.

The ideal doctor is not a specialist in diseases, but one who understands disease, yet specializes in restoring what is optimum.

Dr Jernigan:
My 25 year old daughter was diagnosed with POTS mid December 2014. In October she had run a half marathon (not her best time)and she noticed she continually felt worse, fatigue, brain fog... She has met with Cardiologist for POTS and her primary care. She is on Florinef and Metropolo. We were determined to find the underlying cause. We just got back the IGENEX test results for Lyme. Positive. Panels 31+++ and Panel 34++. Test was positive for IGM. That is the confusion. IGM is for recent infection. She lives and Boston and home is family home is CT in the woods. She was camping in NH late August and thinks that is when she got bitten as she felt progressively slower during her training for the marathon. Is this a false positive for IMG? IGENEX considers IMG recent infection. But "Recent" is ambiguous. She was feeling symptoms in around late September early October. If she tested positive for LYME wouldn't then the antibodies be IGG? There are so may conflicting comments on Lyme and the testing results. She just started 200mg daily of Doxycycline yesterday to increase to 400mg a day by next week. The Dr also did a blood test for possible co-infection where she might introduce a secondary antibiotic. My question is if IGM is positive, Panels 31 and 34 positive and you have had POTs for 2 1/2 months how is "recent" defined in the Lyme medical world? If it is only 4 weeks then maybe she doesn't have LYME?
Thank you for you time.
