Just one word to that, you know, Joe Boerescano published it a few years ago that virtually the main known cause for insulin resistance that we find has nothing to do with the things that Mercola with Lyme disease. Lyme disease induces insulin resistance. How do we know that? When we treat Lyme disease successfully the insulin resistance is gone.
Now, Jonathan Wright came up with this beautiful simple protocol that he dug up in the literature. So far it’s been a hundred percent successful. What I want to say here pretty
much towards to the end of the interview is like if you have a Lyme disease patient and you treat the insulin resistance every else is going to go easier.
DM: Would that mean the clinical conditions typically associated with the insulin resistance which would be obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension?
DK: The amazing thing in the Lyme group is there is a subgroup that has severe insulin resistance with high insulin levels in the morning and all the things and the skinny vegetarians they try to exercise as much as they can. They do all the right things and they still have the insulin resistance. They have a completely different expression of the things we normally associate with it.
So insulin resistance, I mean, I know it’s a whole other topic or so but it’s a huge part of the treatment of Lyme disease is handling insulin resistance. With that usually all the arthritic symptoms go away and the fatigue greatly improves and the sleep improves. Things that we normally don’t associate with the insulin resistance improve dramatically. Jonathan Wright showed us clear evidence in the literature that osteoarthritis is an outcome of insulin resistance which I didn’t know.
Thanks to Jonathan this has been a beautiful treatment addition. I found Italian literature – I mentioned that in one of my talks with you years ago that niacin has been found to be a very, very effective antibiotic against Lyme disease so there is a link. Niacinamide has the same antimicrobial activity as niacin has.
DM: But they’re different, niacin and niacinamide because the niacin will give you the flush and niacinamide won’t.
DK: Yeah. But the antimicrobial effect has been shown to be identical whether you use niacin or niacinamide. Nobody knows really how that works but they did culture experiments and both have the same...
Maybe I’ll say something to this. There was a cluster of outbreaks of beriberi disease in Italy which was treated with vitamin B3 (niacin) and the illness went away. So it was concluded that it was a niacin deficiency because it goes away with niacin it must be a niacin deficiency. Years later, researcher came in and said, you can’t really do science like this. Let’s look what these people really have in these clusters in Italy that have the vitamin B3 deficiency symptoms. They did tissue biopsies and found all of them were infected with spirochetes.
So they realized that the high dose niacin with a gram three times a day was a very, very effective treatment for Lyme disease and then we looked up in the literature and found that niacinamide has the same anti-microbial activity. So treating insulin resistance it’s interesting with Jonathan Wright’s new cocktail also covers the Lyme spirochetes to a large degree. It’s a beautiful thing to add in. There are no side effects from it. It’s been a wonderful additional.
DM: How long have you been using it?
DK: I used it for about a year but it took about eight months for me to really speak with authority.
