In June, 2016, I spent three days at a conference in Seattle that was taught by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt MD, PhD and hosted by the Klinghardt Academy.  

Most of the event was geared to practitioners that were interested in learning Dr. Klinghardt's Autonomic Response Testing (ART) energetic testing.  This was the Advanced Level 3 course which I have taken in the past, but there are always new things to be learned from Dr. Klinghardt.  My intent is to share some of the key takeaways from the event, but I am not attempting to share details specific to his system of testing as that cannot be learned from reading a blog post.  If you have an interest in ART, I urge you to sign up for a course on it.  It is a fun, empowering, and wonderfully insightful testing system that I highly recommend.

  • Some studies have shown that melatonin can help to detoxify the brain as well as to help with parasites, viruses, etc. in the brain. Dr. Klinghardt finds that only liposomal melatonin gets into the brain.
  • Cannabis has been shown to increase levels of melatonin in the body.
  • All along people have focused on detoxifying with glutathione, but melatonin is even better.
  • EMFs keep metals from being properly detoxified in the body.
  • They have found that using 23andme results with Bob Miller's Methyl Genetic Nutrition Analysis reporting can be very helpful. They can often gain additional insights using ART based on the recommendations from the report.
  • Dr. Klinghardt has not seen major results with a focus on SNPs alone; it is not the genes that are making us ill.
  • It is predicted that by 2025, half of all boys born will be autistic.
  • Lead, mercury, and aluminum are three important things to look for in those with chronic illness.
  • Lyme is not the enemy, but we are weakened and can no longer handle the onslaught of what was once normal.
  • Many with Lyme also have PANS (similar to PANDAS but not always Strep that is the instigator).
  • BioPure will be coming out with an updated version of The Core that no longer contains manganese. Dr. Klinghardt mentioned that people may take manganese separately when needed but is removing it from the reformulated version of The Core.
  • If chronically ill, everybody benefits from getting off gluten. It is a requirement for patients in their office.  
  • Whenever there is inflammation, think of aluminum. Mercury is anti-inflammatory.
  • Me assisting Dr. K in a demonstrationIf there are neurological symptoms, think mercury. If there is inflammation, think aluminum.
  • In order to make mold/fungi more treatable, get the mercury out of the system.
  • They use an in office tool called Oligoscan to look at heavy metals and find that it correlates well with ART. Aluminum is generally the highest.
  • On porphyrin testing, uroporphyrin is an indication for aluminum; precoproporphyrin for mercury, and coproporphyrin for lead.
  • An ionic foot bath has become a huge tool in their world.
  • IV Vitamin C is a potent detoxifying tool; read Tom Levy's work.
  • Chlorella increases SIgA and stimulates macrophages to respond to infections.
  • In one study, standard metal detoxification options took 7 years to reduce 1/2 of the metal burden in the bones vs. 39 days with cilantro. Note: Cilantro is a powerful tool and one I do not suggest using without proper medical supervision.
  • The main excretion of metals with the ionic foot baths is believed to be on day 3; Dr. Klinghardt feels that more frequent use may be stressful to the kidneys and they generally suggest twice weekly.
  • Sweating is better for glyphosate and other herbicides than it is for detoxification of heavy metals.
  • In some cases of high serum iron, it may not be an overload, but rather the result of chronic infections. You may be unable to metabolize it and thus be deficient. It may still be needed in some people and can also serve as bug bait to bring out microbes from their hiding place such that they are then more impacted by antimicrobial therapies that are being used.
  • Viruses drive everything about illness.
  • Parasites are vulnerable to Omega 6 arachadonic acid. Ghee can be a perfect fit for parasite treatment.
  • A KPU patient is a parasite patient due to the loss of Omega 6.
  • Most KPU labs now come back negative unless sent to Holland.
  • If BioPure Core tests energetically, there is a good chance that this is an issue that needs further exploration.
  • Lyme may even be airborne now. In a doctor's office treating Lyme, all employees often test positive for Lyme. Most people don't get sick with this type of exposure.
  • Lyme cysts can survive 600 degrees centigrade and survive hydrochloric acid.
  • Only 25% of people with Lyme recall an EM rash.
  • Fleas, spiders, lice, and mosquitoes may all be sources of various infections.
  • 80% of mosquitoes in endemic areas may have Borrelia. Spiders may carry Bartonella and Babesia. Lice carry Bartonella.
  • The more aluminum toxic a person is, the more active their Lyme will be.
  • An asymptomatic mom may transmit Lyme to a child and this may lead to autism.
  • Babesia is significantly increased with higher levels of testosterone.
  • Glutathione and Alpha Lipoic Acid may be helpful in mold illness but otherwise may be too weak.
  • For mold, Artemisia, O3 Gamma Oil, and Zeolite may be helpful tools.
  • Artemisia / Artemisinin may be helpful for Leishmania, Toxoplasmosis, Trypanosomiasis and more.
  • Artemisia with a small amount of added artemisinin may be the best option rather than using either alone.
  • 6-8 cups of cistus tea per day may be a comprehensive Lyme treatment.
  • Hyaluronic acid is a favorite snack for Lyme. It may be given sublingually in order to bring the microbes out of hiding and serve as "bug bait".
  • Stevia has been shown to be better than triple antibiotic therapy.
  • Propolis is extremely effective for Bartonella. Some may make it liposomal.
  • Sliver given separately from the Klinghardt Cocktail in the form of Argentyn 23 may be helpful; taken away from everything else.
  • He likes bee venom therapy and has used injectable bee venom for his own health maintenance for years.
  • The biggest new cancer in women is lung cancer.
  • DNA Connexions testing is best with the urine sample collected after 1 hour of deep tissue work. Very few are negative. ART has been found to correlate very closely with DNA Connexions testing.
  • PCR testing uses a small section to compare to library of known microbes.
  • Borrelia in the US has many more genes than German Borrelia; 627 vs. 27. US Borrelia may have embedded genes of EBV, Mycoplasma, and other microbes. Whether an organism is an isolated organism or has embedded itself into another organism, the same medicines still work. Low dose herbal cocktails are best.
  • Cavitations in the jaw bone are common. Root-filled teeth release thioethers that are very toxic compounds.
  • PEEK for crowns and bridges is more biocompatible. Zirconium oxide for crowns and implants is often a good choice.
  • The lower jaw is usually more of a problem area than the upper in terms of cavitations.
  • HDL goes down with dental pathology and goes up when dental work is done to resolve the pathology. If LDL is high, this could be an indication of Lyme.
  • Dental tubules are 2 micrometers. A white blood cell is 6 and microbes may be 1. The immune system cannot access the microbes that are in the dental tubules.
  • Not a single root canal tooth that was tested has not been thoroughly infected.
  • They have never seen an extraction of a root canal not lead a patient to improvement and higher ground.
  • Dental infections completely plug up the lymph nodes and tonsils.
  • The jaw is the most obstructive thing for clearing the brain.
  • Dr. Klinghardt likes the work being done at Swiss BioHealth with Dr. Volz for anything related to dental issues that needs to be done. http://www.swiss-biohealth.com/
  • He likes Oncotonin brand liposomal melatonin. Initially, it can push out metals or viruses and make people feel worse so that may need to be considered with one's doctor as well.
  • Lyme, aluminum, lead, cadmium, viruses, and more can impact the brain when melatonin is low; lowered melatonin can be caused by EMF exposure.
  • Cell phone radiation may lead to hypothyroidism.
  • For EMF support, propolis and rosemary may both be good options.
  • Some foam mattresses can be 11-17 pounds heavier from sweat; mold can accumulate.
  • If you raise the head of the bed by 6 inches, this may resolve 60% of sleep apnea and increase IQ by 20 points in six months; lymphatic flow improves.
  • Best not to take zinc and copper at the same time.
  • Exceptional gifts are often found in people with Lyme, aluminum, etc.
  • Everyone should be on an aluminum detoxification program.
  • Tyler Dahm shared that the ionCleanse works in the ANS by using a frequency to activate the parasympathetic "rest and digest system". Viruses, toxins, and other burdens block ion channels in the body.
  • Dr. Klinghardt mentioned that it is believed to stimulate the meridian systems through the feet. The peak metal excretion is on day 3 after the footbath. It is best to use binders with a footbath to avoid recirculation of toxins. Using a footbath with cilantro can increase the excretion of toxins by as much as 20 fold.
  • The use of sauna, a mobilizer (homeopathic or laser detox), and zeolite to bind mobilized pesticides may be a good approach for detoxifying glyphosate. Vitamin E, zinc, and glycine are also helpful. Liposomal melatonin may be helpful as well.
  • Zeolite and liposomal melatonin is a broad spectrum approach for many different toxins.
  • We need amino acids; it is hard to detoxify people on a vegetarian/vegan diet as we need higher protein.
  • A ketogenic diet helps with detoxification of insecticides, pesticides, and herbicides.
  • Ghee and liposomal melatonin can be helpful for many parasites that may be in the brain.
  • Lungs are a commonly stressed organ and seem to respond to things that support detoxification of aluminum.
  • When pupils remain widely open when looking into the light, this could be a tip off for PANDAS.
  • Anxiety is a keynote for Bartonella.
  • You generally cannot have parasites and Lyme in the brain unless the outflow from the brain is restricted.
  • For those with CCSVI, a dental splint can be extremely helpful. Lyme bugs, dental issues, and tonsil toxins can lead to CCSVI.
  • There are healthy biofilms in the sinuses, eyes, and mouth. Most treatment strategies hurt all of them which is a bad thing. Cistus is selective.
  • The smaller an MIC, the less amount required to kill a microbe. You want to be able to deliver a substance into biofilm that has a low MIC for bad pathogens and a high MIC for good pathogens; cistus does this.
  • NAC should generally be used only for short periods of time. You can destroy biofilms in the gut and acquire leaky gut from it. It breaks down biofilms, but also impacts the gut as well. High does of NAC are not a good option generally.
  • Liposomal preparations penetrate biofilms.
  • Once you have effective alternative options, antibiotics are largely out.
  • Grapefruit seed extract destroys everything in biofilms and is not selective. Its use should be limited to 3 weeks or less; also suppresses glutathione production.
  • The liposomal cocktail is generally done daily with no breaks recommended.
  • You do not ever want to use the cocktail without binders on board and MUST be pooping.
  • Sleep is critical and liposomal melatonin can be helpful.
  • Charcoal is a short-term intervention and not a good long-term option. It binds everything we need and things we don't. Chlorella is the most intelligent binder.
  • When using stevia, you want a whole-leaf extract. BioPure will have one soon.
  • In Germany, they go very high on blood tests for Vitamin D3. For every 10,000 units of D3, need 100 mcg of MK7 to antidote calcification problems. They see fantastic clinical benefits for D3. It increases parasympathetic tone if taken at night. If the pulse rate is high, they often need vitamin D until the pulse rate is 70 or below.
  • True bi-polar disorder is often caused by Borna virus.
  • Chemical toxins in the womb impact genes; as does emotional stress in the womb.
  • Epigenetic mutations get passed on to the next generations. Epigenetic influencers include environmental toxins and infections.
  • Looking at the genes is 1% of the problem.
  • ART is an extension of the physical exam.
  • Quinton water is an option that may help to stop epigenetic transmission.
  • Blood pressure issues can be due to cavitations.
  • GERD can be Bartonella or Borrelia in some cases.
