Dr. Klinghardt uses 0.5 ml Bee-venom form Canada (Michael Simics) in 2.5 ml Procaine and injects 0.5 ml procaine in tender spot subcutaneously into the skin. It is relatively painless and has an incredible effect in his Lyme Disease patients.
In some it lasts for 2 days and in others for 3-4 days. Dependent on the response he establishes a schedule: shots every 2-3 days. The client then learns to do their own injections and otherwise follow the bee venom protocol that we have (bee sting kit etc.). Patients start to feel much better very soon, their depression and fatigue lifts, then their pain. It appears to be a great benefit!
Soon the gaps between shots increase until maybe once every 19 days for maintanance in severe cases. If it doesnt work, Babesia or Ehrlichiosis, Chlamydia pneumoniae, etc is the primary diagnosis that needs to be treated.
He also uses a Lyme disease specific transfer factor that is available from Chisholm Biological Labs 803-663-9618 X9777.
Below is an interesting study on the powerful effects of bee venom on Lyme Disease:

The antimicrobial agent melittin exhibits powerful in vitro inhibitory effects on the Lyme disease spirochete.

Borrelia burgdorferi has demonstrated a capacity to resist the in-vitro effects of powerful eukaryotic and prokaryotic metabolic inhibitors. However, treatment of laboratory cultures on Barbour-Stoenner-Kelly medium with melittin, a 26-amino acid peptide contained in honeybee venom, showed immediate and profound inhibitory effects when they were monitored by darkfield microscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy, and optical density measurements.
Furthermore, at melittin concentrations as low as 100 microg/mL, virtually all spirochete motility ceased within seconds of inhibitor addition. Ultrastructural examination of these spirochetes by scanning electron microscopy revealed obvious alterations in the surface envelope of the spirochetes. The extraordinary sensitivity of B. burgdorferi to mellitin may provide both a research reagent useful in the study of selective permeability in microorganisms and important clues to the development of effective new drugs against lyme disease.
