The Bionic 880...The Best Thing For Borrelia, But What About Co-Infections?

Last week, I posted the blog addy's of three Lyme disease sufferers who have recently traveled to Germany to receive treatment for Lyme with the Bionic 880, the latest (and maybe greatest) bio-photon device for ridding the body of borrelia infections.

In following these people's informative blog posts in which they describe their experiences with the Bionic 880, amidst amusing and entertaining anecdotes of their "Lyme vacations" to Germany, I have come to a few preliminary conclusions about this device. I say "preliminary", because how well the device can completely eradicate chronic Lyme, with its multiple co-infections and miscellaneous issues, such as heavy metal toxicity, multiple chemical sensitivities and other biochemical dysfunction, remains unknown. The German patients who have been treated with the device have experienced tremendous success in their healing, but it is thought that this is because they have more clear-cut cases of Lyme, with borrelia being the principal culprit behind their symptoms.

Likewise, the three sufferers from the States who have posted on their experiences in Germany, from what I have inferred from their blogs, seem to agree that the Bionic 880 is indeed effective for ridding the body of borrelia, but that because the physician who performs the treatments is less experienced in treating some of the co-infections (due to German patients not having the same complicated mess of infections as we Americans), the machine's effectiveness for some co-infections has been untried and is therefore unknown.

But that doesn't mean that it can't heal co-infections and biochemical dysfunction. The Bionic 880 works effectively in conjunction with homeopathic nosodes, which contain the bio-energetic blueprint of the pathogen being treated and which are placed on the patient while he/she receives treatment with the photon device. Thus, it would seem that any type of infection could be eradicated, if only the proper nosode for the pathogen or toxin were developed and used in conjunction with the device. That possibility is indeed encouraging!

One blogger wrote that the doctor told him that simply using a blood sample as a homeopathic nosode could be effective for treating co-infections, since the blood contains all of the body's infections; however, if this were true then I wonder why patients wouldn't be treated in this manner from the outset? I mean, why use a borrelia nosode if your blood is a homeopathic blueprint for all the infections in your body? I'm probably missing something here, but I can't help a little preliminary analysis. I'm not in Germany, so take my musings with a pinch of salt.

Furthermore, testimonials on the Bionic 880 demonstrate that it can heal a multitude of ailments, including some types of biochemical, such as hormonal, dysfunction. So it would seem that it also has the potential to fix some of the so-called miscellaneous problems of chronic Lyme disease, but what it can and cannot do exactly, remain fuzzy issues because its potential has not been fully exploited and probably few practitioners are knowledgeable about how to do that.

In the meantime, if you have a lot of dough (because going to Germany for three weeks and purchasing a device or simply receiving treatments is gonna cost you), and know that borrelia is a big problem for you, then shlepping your body overseas for a little Lyme vacation in the black forest may be well worth the effort and expense.

If you think your borrelia infection is pretty much under control, however, but you are still fighting co-infections and/or other issues, you might want to do some more research or wait to hear from other Lyme guinea's about the Bionic 880's effectiveness for such problems, before hopping on a plane and blowing a hole into your bank account (the size of the hole, of course, dependent upon the size of your savings!).

Finally, I want to thank the bloggers (and you know who you are!) for informing the rest of us about your experiences in Germany. It has been fun and encouraging living vicariously through you and learning about this exciting new device! :)

Hi Connie,

Really glad to see you post on this. For anyone reading, I (think) I'm one of the three that Connie is referring to, and I would say her opinions of the machine mostly agree with my own. I truly think this will either eradicate lyme for most lyme patients, regardless of how sick (because I consider myself very ill--I'm arguably the least functional out of the patients I know that have come here from the states). Whether that means that lyme is completely gone or just that the lyme load is low enough for the immune system to take over, we'll probably never know given the diagnostic shortcomings on lyme.

On the idea that the bionic can be used to treat coinfections: this is the major task that lies ahead for all us that came but aren't 100% (which is most). We're testing energetically negative or close for lyme using multiple forms of energetic testing including ART and bioresonance (Bicom 2000 machine in Dr. W's office) but still positive for other issues. I personally believe due to my a recent ART test that the photons have released a slew of heavy metals throughout the body (they were all testing negative via urine tests before). Other issues like viruses and mold are still present. I fully intend to use the bionic with nosodes for those remaining issues when I get home.

As for why Dr. W doesn't treat these other issues: like Connie said, the german patients don't seem to have as many issues so he hasn't had to. When I asked him today about co-infections, he said "you can treat everything else after the borrelia," making it sound like borrelia is the true gatekeeper that I think it is. He said it would take much longer than the 3-4 weeks to treat us American patients, so he focuses on the lyme only and gives us input on how to treat with the bionic for other issues. I have reason to believe he's working on co-infections earnestly behind the scenes though.

As for the live blood, he said using a vial of our own blood would be too intense for most patients. First the borrelia, then other issues. I intend to take it a step back and even go one issue at a time until most recognizable issues are done, then finish off with live blood.

Thanks for following my blog Connie!! Sounds like you're doing pretty well in Costa Rica =)

The problem with treating at the onset with your own blood is the impact to your body of doing so. In other words, you are now not treating for 1 thing, but for hundreds and the fallout of all of them will happen together. So, most people would be overloaded with doing so at the beginning. After some of the major issues are addressed, then blood may be an option though to my knowledge, no one from the American groups have tried it yet. Treating the Borrelia alone is enough to make most people feel pretty badly.

Hi Joey!

I'm so happy to hear that you are feeling so much better! What a wonderful feeling that must be.
I hope the Bionic will enable you to get rid of the other issues you mention here.

Thanks also for the info. about using the Bionic for co-infections. What Dr. W says makes good sense! (Although I wonder if a blood sample contains the blueprint for ALL of the body's infections, or just those present in the sample? Whaddya think? Or does it even matter?).

I hope you continue to enjoy your time there! Thanks again for sharing your experiences. I wish you well in your healing.

I am doing well here in CR, thanks :)

Thanks for confirming what Joey wrote about using a blood sample for co-infections. That makes total sense.

I'm glad to hear you are enjoying your trip and I've learned much from reading your blog.

So thanks for the posts! Go eat some more gluten-rich German cuisine for me, or at least that yummy onion soup :)

Have any of you used the Asyra for assessment of health status and then used the homeopathic remedies the Asyra creates from that assessment?

Have you done this over a long period of time working to re-establish balance one layer at a time, not going any faster than your body can handle each transition?

What kind of results have you experienced?

From my research it appears to be a wonderful tool to support healing from chronic illnesses.

I am wanting to hear from people who have some experience with it that goes beyond just the assessment stage.

I have experienced the assessment and found that to be most profound and intriguing.

Now I want to know about people's experience with the homeopathic remedies, or other products they were directed to based upon their Asyra assessment.

Thanks for sharing your experience!

P.S. There is an article about the Asyra device on this blog. Use the search feature to find it if you haven't read it.

I understand that Dr. Singleton recently gave a presentation on the bionic 880 at a maryland lyme conference. I wonder what he thinks? Will he be sending any of his patients over?

Hi Anonymous,

I haven't heard about this. Perhaps if we are lucky Dr. S will get a machine to use here in the States. Wouldn't that be grand! (Although it is my understanding that it hasn't been approved for use by docs here...I could be wrong but I seem to recall hearing something to that effect). If you learn more, please do share! Thanks

Thanks folks for all those interesting comments about the Bionic 880; I am a Canadian and my dear daughter has been ill with CFS, which is now, as of yesterday after receiving Igenex results, being called Lyme. After 8 years of illness, I am desperate to help her. Would someone please post the addresses of the German clinics? Thanks and God Bless.

I think that I am in the latest posting area for the Bionic, well Connie and I both just went to Germany (that is where we finally met in person), she herxed some, but I was, as usual the major herxer, Connie has named me Cyclops because me eye was so swollen from the treatment.

As far as why Doctor W. treats the Borrelia first, as one poster put it, he believes that it is the gatekeeper and releases the most toxins. After this when you return home with your machine, you can treat your blood slowly, Scott recommends 90 seconds and no more per each meridian. He has experimented, and I believe Scott to be a good judge of about anything.

Anyway, it's been just over three weeks since my last treatment in Germany and I am slowly getting better, the eye looks almost normal, my sleep is improving, the swelling in my head is almost gone and my eye sensitivity is better as well. The EMFS are still a problem, but not near as severe. My energy is still low, but climbing slowly.

If anyone needs advice, with my little knowledge that the good Lord has endowed me with, I would be willing to share with anyone. Connie is a sweetheart and truly wants to help people. Lord bless her and show her all that you have for her. Amen. Troy
