Biofilm Myths and Remedies
In this article we will address various types of biofilm, their remedies, and some myths revolving around biofilm. This information was taken from Combating Biofilms by James Schaller, the #1 selling book on the topic. Schaller was kind enough to answer some questions that I had, so those answers have also been provided here. I’ve also listed my 2 favorite Schaller friendly products at the end of the article. Living with Lyme Disease: combatting biofilm myths and remedies are important to learn.
What is Biofilm?
“Biofilm” has become an ambiguous term that makes most of us think of bug slime. We are aware of some ways to get rid of it: avoid magnesium, sugar and fat; take enzymes and cyst-busting antimicrobials. We just don’t know where the research is to back these claims. Not all biofilms are created equal, yet we have very little guidance to help us distinguish one bacterial biofilm from another.
This is a subject I really wanted to explore so I started looking around Amazon for books on the subject. What I found were $139 texts outside of my price range, and then one affordable and highly useful paperback, Combating Biofilms by Dr. James Schaller–the highest and most rated text on the topic. So I read it, applied it and here are some useful pearls that helped me.
