Enhanced Biofilm Protocol: Perfecting the Process Part III: The Final Steps

biofilm

Over the last two weeks, we’ve looked at Dr. Wong’s new Enhanced Biofilm Protocol. If you’d like to play catch-up, check out our most recent two posts on Enhanced Biofilm Protocol: Perfecting the Process: Part I: and Part II:  Liver Detoxification and Vitamin D Deficiencies.

This week, we’ll take a look at the remaining steps in Dr. Wong’s new biofilm protocol that focuses on targeting body toxins, removing them, and healing the body of Autistic children.

We left off explaining the importance of cleansing the liver. After this process takes place, the Ileocecal and Houston valves are inspected and fixed if necessary. The ileocecal valve is distinctive because it is the only site in the GI tract which is used for Vitamin B12 and bile acid absorption.

Next comes diet modification. Children should eat fruits that are in season that are not treated with any sort of preservatives. Additionally, the GFCF diet should be initiated to continue the cleansing of the body and as an upkeep of health.

Probiotics and Prebiotics should be administered at this point. These, by definition safe and effective agents that help regulate the body’s micro-environment.

Steps 3 – 7 of the  Enhanced Biofilm protocol should be repeated depending on the severity of the situation.

Now the original biofilm protocol is added into the process.

The protocol should be done for at least 6 months before the body is tested again to see the status of improvement.

As a final recap of Dr. Wong’s Enhanced Biofilm Protocol:

  1. Do Blood Chemistry Test
  2. Do Comprehensive Stool Analysis
  3. Correct Calcium and Vitamin D deficiencies and others if test indicates necessity
  4. Cleanse liver if needed
  5. Fix Ileocecal and Houston valves
  6. Eat fruits in season and little amount is suspected yeast overgrowth
  7. Go on Sugar Control Diet, GFCF diet
  8. Take probiotics and prebiotics
  9. Do Steps 3-7 for four to six weeks depending on severity
  10. Now, add on the original BioFilm Protocol
  11. Run the protocol for at least six months before retest or stop

Enhanced Biofilm Protocol: Perfecting the Process Part II: Liver Detoxification And Vitamin D Deficiencies

liver

Last week we began talking about Dr. Wong’s new findings in Enhanced Biofilm Protocol. We’ve discussed similar methods of ridding the Autistic body of hidden toxins before here. What’s new about Dr. Wong’s Enhanced Biofilm Protocol? How does it take the original protocol and make it better? What problems from the original does it address?
The original protocol, as we discussed, focused on first finding the problem via a blood test. The ‘problem’ in this case is the lack of function of the Gastrointestinal system (GI). A new diet is usually implemented, the body goes through a detox period, and then medicinal supplements are given to further replace deficient vitamins in the body.

Here is a summary of Dr. Wong’s Enhanced Biofilm Protocol:

  1. Do Blood Chemistry Test
  2. Do Comprehensive Stool Analysis
  3. Correct Calcium and Vitamin D deficiencies and others if test indicates necessity
  4. Cleanse liver if needed
  5. Fix Ileocecal and Houston valves
  6. Eat fruits in season and little amount is suspected yeast overgrowth
  7. Go on Sugar Control Diet, GFCF diet
  8. Take probiotics and prebiotics
  9. Do Steps 3-7 for four to six weeks depending on severity
  10. Now, add on the original BioFilm Protocol
  11. Run the protocol for at least six months before retest or stop

Notice some new stuff in there? Let’s go over some of the new additions:

Step 1: Do A Blood Chemistry Test:
What Dr. Wong has found is that via a Blood Chemistry Test, he has found that children with Autism are usually deficient in both Calcium and Vitamin D. This is especially true if the test shows low stomach enzymes (high phosphorus) and serum protein. You see without stomach enzymes we cannot absorb calcium and protein.  The calcium besides, important for our bone helps maintain our valves integrity.  The valves separate and compartmentalize our body such as the ileocecal valve helps separate small and large intestine.

Step 2: Do a Comprehensive Stool Analysis:
It is through a stool analysis that a complete workup of microbial population and deficiencies can be detected.

Step 3:  Correct Calcium and Vitamin D deficiencies and others if test indicates necessity

What Dr. Wong has found is that if we correct our Blood Chemistry problems we can enhanced our healing ability.

Step 4: Cleanse the Liver if Needed:

It is a commonly known fact that our bodies contain bacteria. Not all bacteria is bad, in fact our bodies have healthy bacteria. However, a large number of Autistic children have an abundance of bad bacteria in the form of yeast and even parasites. Yeasts are part of our normal body flora, however an over abundance can be damaging. When alive, yeasts produce phenolic compounds to further burden our liver detoxification function. This combined with stresses like heavy metals, drugs, impaired cellular function as in mitochondrial disease, can really put a huge burden on the liver. Because the liver is a major part of detoxification, if it is not in working order, then the body cannot utilize it as a way to get rid of toxicities. Leaky Gut Syndrome is also a product of yeast overabundance.

The goal is not to kill yeast, but to manage its population. Therefore, we must eat a sugar-free and stay away from “white goods” like white bread, white sugar etc.

What we’re saying is that when the organ used to detoxify the body is in itself toxic, then how can the body begin to be repaired? Liver cleansing is an added step in Dr. Wong’s Enhanced Biofilm Protocol. This can be done utilizing a variety of methods, and once done, it can be taken a step further to taking part in a “Fresh Start Diet” which essentially is a week long diet of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Next week, we’ll take a look at the remainder steps in Dr. Wong’s Enhanced Biofilm Protocol. If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comment section of this post.

Also, you’re going to be seeing a lot of new changes coming very soon. We’ve changed out name to “New Autism”.  Expect a new blog design. Even some more great findings and discoveries of Dr. Wong.

Enhanced Biofilm Protocol – Perfecting the Process

biofilm

For those of you new readers here, or even parents who are new to the Autism world, Biofilm may be something you’ve never heard of. Don’t worry, the majority of parents that come into our office aren’t sure what it is either, but once it’s explained, they completely understand. Over the last few years, Dr. Wong has been working hard at perfecting testing and treatment of Biofilm, more commonly called Biofilm Protocol, and has come up with an improved process.

Before we get into this new process, let’s do a little review. In one of our previous posts, we explained that Biofilm is more easily thought of as slime. This slime, or biofilm can exist and thrive wherever there is water, from the bathroom counter to your teeth (think: dental plaque) to the gut of living mammals including humans. You might even be able to catch a glimpse of some biofilm as that sticky, green stuff clinging to pipes and plumbing.

About 99 precent of bacteria live in biofilm communities. Of course, not all bacteria is bad. Some bacteria’s primary function is to kill other, more damaging bacteria. More commonly though, we know about the bad bacteria that can do things like corrode pipes and invade our bodies and make us sick, or even causing bodies to reject medical implants.

Whenever we have an infection or some sort, we typically go to the doctor and they prescribe us an antibiotic that starts working immediately and attacking bacteria in our bodies that are making us ill. However, biofilm is a very intelligent thing. Some biofilm resists antibiotics and medicines, and continues thriving despite intense attempts at destroying it. It’s also important to note that depending on the environment, biofilm can form in as little as 30 seconds, to several weeks.

The makings of biofilm were closely studied and it was found that biofilm builds itself a protective matrix utilizing iron, magnesium and calcium. Once this was broken down using Chelation, heavy metals were released into the bowel. Prior to the chelation, the bowel tested sometimes negatively to having toxic metals. This shows that the biofilm itself is in a sense hiding metals.

Dr Wong’s New Findings:

Based on observation of the Blood Chemistry (a blood test) of those affected individuals they are always deficiencies in Calcium and Vitamin D.  Most of them are always having a detoxification issues via their livers and are always eating “white goods” – such as refined carbohydrates.  Dr. Wong’s modified enhanced biofilm protocol now includes calcium and vitamin D supplements.  Additionally the child is given a check-up on their Ileocecal valve and Houston valve.  If the valves are defective, they are fixed using manual correction or acupressure technique.  To confirm deficiences, the Blood Chemistry Test is ran again.

Next week, we’re going to take a close look at Dr. Wong’s Biofilm Protocol.We’re putting together an easy to understand guide on the new Enhanced Biofilm Protocol, and we’re going to be sharing that with you!

Have a wonderful week!

Why Biofilm Protocol Works in Treating Autism

biofilm-image

It is believed that Mercury plays a large role in adversely affecting brain cells in people with Autism. Those who don’t believe that Mercury is the culprit mostly stand by the results of tests being done on the brain, and mercury not being found. It makes sense – if there is no Mercury being found, then how is it affecting the body? Out of sarcasm, some naysayers say “What, is the Mercury hiding or something?”

In a sense, yes.

In order to remove Mercury or other heavy metals, they must first be located. The brain is showing signs of effects similar to mercury, but it’s not being found. The mystery has stunned and stumped researchers. Until now.

A few weeks ago, we talked a bit about Biofilm. (Feel free to catch up by reading the post here).  As a brief summary, Biofilm is the substance that bacteria, parasites,  and other microbes often hide themselves in to avoid antibiotics and other treatment methods. Not only are the hidden bacteria damaging, but it has been found that the biofilm itself may contain damaging contents, particularly heavy metals.

For some time, we were unable to break down the Biofilm, or find out what its contents are. Researchers have found that digestive enzymes from the earthworm family can be utilized to assist in the digestion of the Biofilm and to release not only what the protective matrix is holding onto within it’s walls, but also what it’s covering up, which is often infections, bacteria, parasites and other gut disturbing particles.

It has been found that heavy metals often are part of the Biofilm matrix. Because the Biofilm is negatively charged, it attracts things like heavy metals which are positively charged and holds tight to them. The Mercury and other heavy metals being in the digestive system cause the same effect on brain cells as they would if they were actually contained in the brain.

In order to detoxify the body of such metals, they have to be released out of the grips of the biofilm. Once they’re released Chelation therapy can be initiated in order to remove the metals.

Sounds good, right?

As with many things, the proof ends up being in the results. As logical and simple as this all sounds, what have been the results of finding biofilm in the stomach, breaking it down, releasing the metals and bacteria, and detoxing the body?

There are several posts throughout the Autism Message boards discussing biofilm protocol. One testimonial in particular that I’d like to share is from Grace.

Grace has a young daughter, Jaden who has Autism. They began the Biofilm Protocol, and while very rigorous and time sensitive dosing of medication was involved, she saw results. Grace reported that Jaden was very ornery, and learned to lie and steal. She also was having very large and interesting bowel movements. In a nutshell, Jaden is a handful. Grace says:

“Why do we put up with this?, you might be asking. Because all of those difficult moments mean the yeast and bacteria are being pulled from their mucousy biofilm, where they were safe before, and killed! Once the protocol is over  Jaden will likely not need antifungals very often. We sent off her urine two weeks ago and received the results today–proof that the protocol is going to work for Jaden!

The good things we have seen: much independence! Getting out of bed on her own and turning on the TV and petting the cat while waiting for me to come out. Getting dressed completely on her own. Getting her own drinks from the cooler and the refrigerator. Using words like ‘disgraceful’ and ‘gross’. Having a phone conversation with her sister and answering every single question–correctly! Enjoying (and asking to go to) the public library and picking out books for herself. Then making me read them over and over and over. She learned to zipper and isn’t afraid of the vacuum anymore!”

Biofilm Protocol: What It Is, and How It Works

biofilm

Just in case you missed it, last week, we took a look at the basics of Biofilm. If you did miss it, go on and get caught up, and then come on back.  In summary, Biofilm as a slime like organism that can form almost anywhere where water is present. One of its favorite places to form is in the human gut as well as in the bloodstrean and on teeth. That little fur coat that your teeth seem to be wearing after no brushing your teeth? Yes, that’s Biofilm. In most cases, Biofilm hides itself so well that it is often not affected by even the highest and strongest doses of Antibiotics.

The interesting thing about Biofilm is that once it is broken down during Chelation, it gave off a large discharge of toxic metals into the bowel. This was detected in stool samples. Interestingly enough, a stool sample taken from someone before Chelation may not have shown that high metal level. See how smart Biofilm is? Until its accessed and broken down, it isn’t detected. If it’s not broken down, it’s just holding onto bacteria and metals that can contaminate the body.

High levels of toxic metals has been known to be something that is often found in those with Autism. A large amount of Autism treatments include the removal of these metals and improvement of symptoms has been noted. If these toxic metals are hiding deep inside of a matrix as biofilm does, it makes the removal a bit more difficult.

Enter: Biofilm Protocol Treatment:

The Biofilm Protocol was developed by Dr. Anju Usman and her staff during the Defeat Autism Now (DAN!) Think Tank. It wasn’t discussed much as it was relatively new at the time. The idea of the protocol is to break down the Biofilm by targeting the fibrin that biofilm needs to form. Breaking down the fibirn is done with the help of enzymes such as silk-worm produced serapeptase. Once this has begun, then the body must be trained to recognize what’s about to be released. If the immune system doesn’t recognize the broken-down biofilm, then one may get sick. It’s not always about killing the bugs and sickness. The idea is rewiring the gastrointestinal system to that those bugs cannot exist.

The protocol was also developed keeping in mind that the body may have to go through a heavy metal detox since the biofilm may be holding onto toxic metals like aluminum and lead.

The Protocol itself is meant to be a 2-3 month process and comes in three steps:

ONE: Detatchment of the Matrix – the Matrix is where the biofilm hides itself, so it’s essential that this is broken down. Chelation is often used to be able to disolve the minerals in the matrix to initiate a breakdown. This is done on an empty stomach.

TWO: Targeting the Microorganism: Since the biofilm is now unprotected, a dose of antibiotics is given to the body to attack it.

THREE: Clean up:  The body is given anything that can bind up the matrix and potential metals in the gut.

This isn’t an overnight treatment. It took a while for the body to get to the point where the infectious biofilm forms and is hiding to the point where its affecting the body, but undetectable. So, reversing the situation also takes a bit of time.

In 2009, at the Lyme Induced Autism Conference, an interesting point was brought up concerning the outbreak of MRSA.  The most effective antibiotic to MRSA was vancomycin.  However, it wasn’t effective because there was a biofilm. When the drug was combined with EDTA (a Chelation agent), the elements of the biofilm were extracted and the film was broken down. This shows that the idea of breaking down the biofilm and then dismembering the matrix has been effective in other situations as well.
