spirochetes of the genus Borrelia which are borne by ticks or lice.

strains multiply and cause an infection. ( fever, chills, headache, nausea

symptoms that are caused by changes in brain function. A condition characterized
by a progressive decline of mental abilities accompanied by changes in
personality and behavior. Symptoms may include asking the same questions
repeatedly; becoming lost in familiar places; being unable to follow directions;
getting disoriented about time, people, and places, more forgetful of recent
events, more likely to repeat themselves in conversation less concerned
with activities or other people, less able to grasp new ideas, less able
to adapt to change, more anxious about having to make decisions, more irritable
or upset if they can't manage a task, more inclined to lose things or get

unfeeling. The affected person usually knows where they are, what day it
is and does not have the sudden lapses of memory which are characteristic
of Alzheimer's disease. Some people become withdrawn, while others lose
their normal inhibitions and start talking to strangers. Others become
aggressive. In many cases a person's normal sense of judgment seems to
desert them. Because they lose their inhibitions and judgment some people
exhibit sexual behavior in public.

injure the brain, as in encephalitis, meningitis, abscess or chronic brain
Lyme disease. Toxins can cross the blood brain barrier and damage or kill
brain cells. A brain injury produces physiologic, cognitive, emotional,
psychological and behavioral changes. Cognitive problems are specific skill
deficits that may occur following a brain injury. Some of the most common
cognitive problems are Arousal or over-stimulation, Attention and filtering,
Information coding and retrieval (memory). Learning, both using old information
and acquiring new information. Problem Solving. Higher-level
thinking skills known as executive skills.
Individuals may develop
difficulty with self-regulation or self-control, impulse control, over
arousal, frustration tolerance and problems in perception. They may overreact
to situations, get angry without provocation, or behave in socially inappropriate
Following a brain injury,
some people lose appropriate boundaries when they experience sadness, happiness,
and sexual feelings.
An injury to the brain stem
is likely to create problems in mobility (gait), motor control and central
functions. This could result in difficulty standing, walking, getting in
and out of a bed or chair, lifting, throwing, catching, feeding oneself,
writing, and performing other normal daily activities.
Common cognitive problems
seen in mild brain injury:
Attention and filtering.
Short-term memory Information processing Problem solving
Organization Judgment and decision-making Higher-level thinking
skills known as executive skills. And most common physical complaints are
Dizziness. Nausea and motion sickness. Fatigue. Ringing in the ears.
Recurrent headaches Hypersensitivity to light, noise, touch, smell
or taste. Sensitivity to crowds and busy environments. Others around the
person with a mild brain injury may report a “personality change”. Other
common symptoms are: Depression. Changes in sleeping habits.
Increased or decreased sex drive. Heightened fears. Changes in temperament.
Individuals may experience problems in judgment or do things that were
unlike their pre-injury behavior.

The esophageal sphincter
relaxes at the wrong time or doesn't properly close and refluxes pushing
the food back up before digestion. It can refux up to 2 to 12 hours and
tends to be worse after meals. Causes wet burps or wet hiccups, regurgitation
or vomiting, especially after meals. At night, choking or wheezing, if
the contents of the reflux get into the windpipe and lungs. In Kids:
Vomiting and fussiness after feeding. Adults: heartburn, stomach, and chest
The esophagus fills with
food and is unable to enter the stomach. When entry is blocked the food
comes back into the mouth and when it is a small amount it is rechewed
and reswallowed. No stomach hydrochloric acid is present in this regurgitated
food. When it is a great amount that is expelled it will come up with great
force and spew out of the mouth. Sometimes the food remains in the esophagus
for over twelve hours. The person feels hungry and starving because the
food is not entering the stomach.
Contrary to the Medical
profession s findings...this is NOT caused by mental retardation, mentally
ill people needing psychiatric help, by people wanting to amuse themselves
with rechewing, by a mental disorder or that it is all in their heads!
Medical Doctors do not have an answer because they have tried to control
it with medication and no medication works on it as it is not chemical
but it is a physical disorder or an ensyme deficientcy.
With every meal add a good mixure of Enzymes. If that is the cause of the
problem it will stop the reflux immediately
The mechanics of
the esophagus is disrupted when the stomach is pushed up into the chest.
As soon as it is pulled back down by a manipulation with the hand then
the food proceeds its natural course. Once the stomach has been pushed
up and remains that way for a long time it will take repeated hand manipulation
to keep it down and reform its memory of where it belongs for balanced
What can push the stomach
up is stress tightening of muscles when anxious or rushing, sitting hard,
falling, bending with a full stomach... what can trigger the reflux is
swallowing unchewed foods, rough or sharp foods, fats, etc...
.A chiropractor, kinisteology
practitioner or yourself can push the stomach down. Colicky babies respond
well to chiropractic treatment to bring the stomach down.
