Question: Mold, heavy metals, and Lyme — which one do I treat first?

Tim Yarborough: Someone here has mold and heavy metals, and they also have a positive Lyme test. Which one do you recommend treating first?

Dr. Rawls: Oh, we treat them all together. I mean, back to that same question, the cleanse and other people are looking at a cleanse as far as a fast. And quite frankly, a lot of people with Lyme disease are nutrient deficient. So a fast as far as a several-day juice cleanse or something like that isn’t a very good idea when your body is really stressed with chronic Lyme disease. Your cells need nutrients. They don’t need to be starved for three days. And you have to think about the fact that to get toxins out of your body, you do have to have more normal bowel movements so that you’ve got to get that through the liver and out into the digestive tract.

So, one of the best cleanses that I can think of is actually infrared sauna. And it’s because, if you can’t move and your tissues are inflamed, you need to move blood, so you flush the cells. So detoxification is flushing debris from around your cells. So when we look at that, any mycotoxins, any heavy metals, they’re going to be purged from your body if you can flush your cells and allow yourselves to purge these things and get rid of them. So, that’s the first step. You have to do that before you can get them out through your liver and digestive tract.

So you want to decrease the debris. That means taking the herbs to suppress the microbes. That means taking the herbs to provide antioxidants and other protective substances that are part of the phytochemistry of the herbs to protect cells to decrease cellular turnover. You need the herbs to balance hormone systems in the body, so cells can communicate, so they can do their job and purge themselves. So those things are really important. And then, on top of that, moving blood. Now, if you are in a position that you can exercise regularly without causing pain from generating inflammation, that’s how you can do it. That’s one of the best ways.

But if you can’t, heating your body up with heat pads or infrared sauna is top of my list. That’s a way that you can move blood, flush debris from your cells, get that first stage going, and at the same time, protect yourselves and start the process of normalizing the microbe invasion. That’s what it’s all about. And if you do that, then digestive systems are going to normalize, and you’re going to purge those toxins out of your body. So you have to think about this logically as far as what’s going on in the body, so it does come all together. Yeah, that’s what it’s all about.
