Biofilms, Parasites, Mold and Electromagnetic Frequencies

Cistus Incanus (Rock Rose)

Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt MD, PhD and the Klinghardt Academy hosted “A Deep Look Beyond Lyme” in May 2011. Although the conference was focused on Lyme Disease, many of the topics covered, such as heavy metal detox, biofilms, parasites and more are important for people with a variety of conditions. I have a high sensitivity to EMFs which, according to some of the information found here, probably has a lot to do with being infested with toxic mold as well as my detoxification pathway being impaired. Dr. Klinghart has also done an incredible amount of work on family and generational trauma which also plays a part in individual healing and has developed a powerful holistic approach which he calls The Five Levels of Healing (interview with him discussing this approach here).

I have pulled only a few points from Scott Forsgren’s ( notes on the conference, which are extensive–he suggests: “[these notes] do not begin to cover all of the points made or even all of the speakers that presented at this event. I highly recommend the DVDs and binders from this conference if you would like to learn more.” (Contact in**@kl***************.com” target=”_blank”>in**@kl***************.com to access these)

I have only pulled out a few of the ones that struck me. As I am interested in mold, biofilms and electromagnetic fields in particular. There is a lot of interesting health information on Lyme Disease, ALS, Chronic fatigue, MS and much more that you will find in his full notes here.

Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt – Parasites

  • Cistus incanus (Rock Rose herbal tea) is more potent than any other agent known for biofilms. Crosses the blood-brain barrier and is 100% absorbed in the gut. It is antiviral. Can rebrew the tea 4 times. Whitens the teeth (also a biofilm which causes yellow teeth), body fluid smells and odors reduce.
  • Parasite patients often express the psyche of the parasites – sticky, clingy, impossible to tolerate – but a wonderful human being is behind all of that.
  • Mimosa Pudica (Sensitive Plant)
  • We are all a composite of many personalities. Our consciousness is a composite of 90% microbes and 10% us. Our thinking, feeling, creativity, and expression are 90% from the microbes within us. Patients often think, crave, and behave as if they are the parasite. Our thinking is shaded by the microbes thinking through us. The food choices, behavioral choices, and who we like is the thinking of the microbes within us expressing themselves.
  • Patients will reject all treatments that affect the issue that requires treating. Patients will not guide themselves to health when the microbes have taken over.
  • Parasites induce changes in our system to make us a comfortable host.
  • Mimosa pudica (Sensitive plant) powder is an Ayurvedic herb that is 30 times stronger than the best medical drug. Start with 1/2 teaspoon twice a day two days a week and work up to 1 teaspoon daily for 3 months.
  • The endothelium is the largest organ in the body and is “bug heaven”.

Dr. Simon Yu – Parasites

  • Most parasites are outside of the intestinal tract. They are deceptive, adaptive, and difficult to eradicate.
  • Parasites bring bacteria, viruses, and fungi with them.
  • Parasites can control your mind.
  • Clove oil may be helpful. Black Walnut, Wormwood, Artemisia, and Citrus Seed may be useful.

Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt – Mold

Toxic Mold – Stachybotrys chartarum showing the hyphae fruiting structures and spores mag 300x

  • When two mold cultures were separated in a research experiment and one was exposed to EMF while the other was not, the one exposed to EMF had 600 times more toxic biotoxins and its growth rate was dozens of times faster.
  • It may be the case that EMF itself may not harm our body’s cells, but it may impact the microbes within us which results in more biotoxins.
  • Molds create biotoxins (mycotoxins) to defend themselves.
  • Chlorella + Fish oil can be a very powerful combination.
  • The intelligence of normal bacteria to that of mold is like that of a cabbage to an elephant. Molds are far more critical than bacteria. Parasites are elephants squared.
  • Molds incorporate heavy metals to protect themselves from white blood cells. The white blood cells are killed by mercury, but the molds are not.
  • MSH is a hypothalamic peptide which is involved in cytokine release. Low levels are associated to mold, MARCoNS (staph), EMF, and Lyme.
  • MSH may be increased with inhalation of Myrrh oil using a diffuser (not a nebulizer). It may give back energy. Dramatically raises MSH. Forget ATP, CoQ10, glutathione, etc. Bring up MSH and you see a miracle. Tincture of myrrh is a good antimicrobial as well.

Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt – Lyme Disease

  • It is important to remember that one can have Lyme disease and that may not be the cause of the symptoms. There could be 50 other things that are causing the symptoms.
  • Microbes exist in communities. Lyme surrounds itself with Staph, Strep, Mycoplasma, and molds.
  • Symptoms are rarely caused by the Lyme spirochete. Joint pain is often the result of Rickettsia, Mycoplasma, or Clostridia. Gut issues are often related to parasites or Babesia. Borrelia alters the immune system and opens the door for other infections but does not generally create significant symptoms itself.

Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt – General

  • Heavy metal symptoms are identical to Lyme, to Mold, to PTSD. The common final pathway is the detox pathway. Mold must be processed through the same liver and kidney as mercury. The detox system is severely overwhelmed in our modern world. There are 200,000 chemicals in the environment. Difficulty with the elimination of biotoxins presents in the same way.
  • Electrosmog acidifies and shuts down the kidneys.
  • Acidity is treatable, but being too alkaline is much more concerning – especially when there is no undulation/variation in the pHs.
  • Acid vs. Alkaline Water – has tried various alkaline water instruments and does not feel that they do anything. Alkaline water is not where the gold is at.
  • Protozoa are more advanced than bacteria and viruses and on the same level as the molds.
  • Asperger’s is 20 times more common in boys than in girls. Testosterone has a negative synergistic effect with mercury, EMFs, etc.
  • The first boy is generally the most challenged as he gets 2/3 of the mother’s toxicity.
  • Radiation – sea salt baths in hot water. Chlorella and cilantro. Chaparral. DMPS. SSKI (TriQuench) – 7 drops a day for 7-10 days for acute exposure, then less than 1 drop per day for maintenance.
  • Germans with parents from WWII all have KPU. It is passed down epigenetically through the methylation pathways.
  • Clostridia in the gut can be involved in KPU; treat infections to address KPU.

Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt – Nasal Staph

  • Remove “gunk” from nasal mucous membranes. May use a neti pot. 1/2 teaspoon of salt with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, Alkala, or Tri-Salts and 1 teaspoon of xylitol. Xylitol bloats bacteria and they then die. Molds and staph are drawn to xylitol and are then killed. Use warm water.
  • Reset the immune system and the mucous membranes by using an auto-urine nasal spray. One can get a saline nasal spray bottle at a drugstore and dump out the contents. It can then be filled with one’s own urine and a drop of SSKI (iodine). SSKI disrupts the cell walls and exposes the cell organelles to the immune system. Nasal auto-urine is done for 2-3 months to balance the immune system. Introduces your urine to the “sleeping beauty” (your immune system). Some drink 1/2 glass of urine twice daily to stimulate the immune system in the gastrointestinal tract as well.
  • The majority of humans are infected with chronic sinusitis. 25-30% of “normal” humans have staph in their nasal passages. Low back pain is often present. The veins of the lower body and the upper sinus are connected.

Dr. Stephen Fry – Biofilms

Complexity of biofilm. ©2003 Center for Biofilm Engineering Montana State University-Bozeman

  • Biofilms are a structured community of bacterial cells enclosed in a self-produced polymer matrix and adherent to an inert of living surface.
  • Slime in a stream is biofilm.
  • Biofilm is an aggregate of microorganisms where cells adhere to each other and/or to a surface.
  • Dental plaque is a biofilm community.
  • Biofilms contain calcium, iron, and magnesium.
  • Chronic sinusitis is a biofilm. Dental issues are related to biofilms.
  • Once you treat parasites and fungus, bacteria much more easily go away.
  • Dr. Klinghardt suggested that liposomal artemisinin may be helpful here given that these microbes love fats and that artemisinin is shown to be powerful against protozoan organisms such as malaria.

    I love your site. Great info, great wisdom. I’m one of the really sick near death people with mold exposure and I’m finding that about 80-90% of all the info out there is junk. Even the so called” mold experts” dont know much! Based on my years of self testing and just managing to stay alive, it seems that the info imparted by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, is the most correct of all the experts!

    I have recently started drinking 2-3 cups of cistus incanus tea per day. But it has caused me to have a period at the age of 58 (the last one I had was almost 2 years ago). Is this normal? If so, should I continue to take it. It’s not a side effect that I particularly like and I’m also wondering if it is harmful?

    1. EllaL

      It’s very unlikely that drinking cistus tea would have caused you to have a period. If I was you I would check with my gynecologist. I drink cistus tea for few years now.I feel better. It helps me with general health. I was not sick for few years now. If I was you and started to have periods (btw I’m 55) I would be concerned.

    2. Heather

      If you are one of the unfortunate ( and highly misinformed ) people who have taken the so called “covid vaccine” ( which btw is NOT ). It is well known in the “real” world or “truther” world that it is causing menopausal women to have periods again. I am willing to bet thousands of dollars, you had the jab. Otherwise known as “the death shot”.

      Dr’s aren’t talking or are unaware of this, it’s swept under the rug, called a “coincidence” and is covered up on Google as well. You can find some information in the health& medical section of Bitchute which is an alternative news source that is not censored and is just real information.

    Would this protocols or remedies work if someone has Hashimoto’s Disease? I am going through a lot of sensitivities, for several years, getting worst, I was contemplating EMF because I could not sleep for months always felt electricity running through me and sound waves I kept hearing, I know there was also mold in the house I moved into, but I had struggle with other health problems before I moved here. Still seeking help with this.

    1. hellaD

      Yes it could help with Hashimoto’s. EMFs really make everything worse when your body is compromised. They make the BBB (blood brain barrier) leaky which allows through all kinds of things that shouldn’t be there as well as the gut. EMFs really affect the thyroid gland I would definitely look into getting an earthing mat or a grounding device from Also limit cellphone use – check out this study: Alterations in TSH and Thyroid Hormones following Mobile Phone Use

    I have a candida overgrowth condition and have been using all the possible known alternative and
    contemporary solutions. started drinking Cistus tea but feel nauseous. I also seem to empty my
    bowels more often. Is it something that could be expected at first?
    Is it OK to irrigate sinuses with this tea?

    1. hellaD

      Yes, you should probably reduce the amount of tea and slowly increase it.

  5. Jeanette

    You’re lacking a defenition in the section for Dr. Klinghardt – General
    The term KPU is undefined, please clarify?

    1. Vicky

      KPU is Kryptopyrrole or Pyrroles
      disorder. Causes massive Zinc & B6 deficiency

  6. Debra

    I am severely EMF sensitive, diagnosed with severe Fibromaylgia. I have suspected Lyme and Babesia infections too but the descriptions for mould toxicity are also a strong possibility as the house I currently live in, used to have mould issues all through the bedroom and bathroom. I just wanted to thank the author for posting this article, its helped me to really understand what I need to do. I am currently using the Borax treatment 5 days a weeks but have had problems with breathlessness for last 2 months. I take Artemisinin for 3 days and take 11 days off too. I have just ordered some Mhrryh tincture so I’m hoping this will help. Thank you again for your informative article, you’ve been a Godsend for me.

    1. hellaD

      Hi Debra,
      I am so glad you have found this information helpful. How is it going with the Borax have you noticed if you have die-off or any other symptoms. How long have you been using it for? Yes Myrrh is good for mold as well and I wonder if you have heard of using turpentine? I haven’t tried it but it seems lots of people have.

      1. Debra

        Hi hellaD,

        I have used the Borax for approximately 4 months now and I have experienced die off. Some of my joints get really sore and stiff until I have the 2 days off. Then it clears and comes back sometimes on day 4 again. This seems to be dwindling now though. It didn’t actually start until my 5th week on it. My partner has now started on the Borax too. Its only been 2 weeks for him and he has no die off symptoms yet apart from lower back pain some days. I got the Myrrh oil today. I didn’t put much confidence in it and expected it to take weeks to have an effect so I tried to dose highly by using a vaporizer, putting a little on the back of my hand, and some on a tissue which I kept inhaling. Within minutes, my energy skyrocketed, my mind became very sharp, my eyes cleared like someone had cleaned the windows and my breathing was so much better. My mood lifted too and I felt joy I hadn’t felt in years. All the Fibromyalgia pain I’d had in my neck and shoulders was gone and I felt fantastic. I really didn’t expect such a fast result. I am so thankful for the information you’ve posted, I’ve been searching for this for so long. While researching Myrrh oil, I also found that Cedarwood oil, resets the HPA axis so I’m also going to try that next. I haven’t tried or heard of using turpentine for Mould but I had heard of using Ammonia in the bath. I haven’t tried this yet though.

        1. Dave

          How much borax per day? In water? In pills? Thanks.

          1. Debra

            Hi Dave,
            The recommended dosage is 1/8 teaspoon a day for 5 days. I mix it with a bit of Himalayan Crystal Salt to hide the soapy taste. I was originally putting these into a 600ml bottle of water but found it easier to mix them into a single glass of warm water and drink straight down. I bought my Borax powder from the local hardware and had to get past the warning label not to ingest it. It really is fine as long as there are no added ingredients other than the Disodium Tetraborate.
            It really does work for removing fluoride in the body, killing mould and decalcifying muscles and joints. My flexibility has increased significantly on it.

    “Very interesting. I knew that my EMF sensitivity came from my toxic mold exposure, but I’ve never heard of the EMFs + mold = increased mycotoxins. So maybe what I’m interpreting as “EMF sensitivity/EHS” is really just mycotoxin symptoms.” another evidence that Klinghardt is fraud who manipulated studies. This is good example of his lies, he use in study faraday cage from silver (silver have anti-fungal properties). So is clear that when you cover mold with silver then will produce lower lvl of mycotoxins so there is 2 option he is Huge incompetent or fraud (I will say the second because anti-fungal properties of silver is basic knowledge).

    Does Cistus incanus effect biofilm in the blood, similar to proteolytic enzymes?

    1. hellaD

      I am not sure if they know exactly how the Cistus incanus works on biofilms. I am trying to find out more information about that.

      “Cistus is more potent than any other agent known for biofilms. Crosses the blood-brain barrier and is 100% absorbed in the gut. It is antiviral. Can rebrew the tea 4 times. Whitens the teeth (also a biofilm which causes yellow teeth), body fluid smells and odors reduce.” — Dr. Klinghardt

      There are some interesting conversations happening here, here and here.

      1. Nate

        I would be interested to know your findings, thank you.

      2. Nate

        Hello again. Is Cistus incanus tea or capsules better or more effective?. If the capsules are better, does drinking it in tea form still have some benfits on biofilm?. What form does Dr Klinghardt suggest taking it in?. Thanks.

        1. hellaD

          Dr Klinghardt recommends it as a tea, that is how it is traditionally taken as well. It is generally best to follow the traditional way — they had a better understanding of food processing than we do these days.

          1. Debra

            I have been using the Cistus Incannus tea now for 3 months at 3-4 cups a day. Its a pleasant enough herbal tea to drink and gets my hydration set up for the day. It definitely works incredibly and I can’t give this tea enough of a recommendation. While I was around 6 weeks into drinking it, everyone around me came down with Influenza B. It put them out of action for 4-6 weeks it was such a severe flu. I took care of everyone because the tea prevented my mucus membranes from being infected. My teeth have whitened and it has dissolved all the plaque right down to below the gum line. I have developed some sensitive teeth due to the removal of the plaque but the gums are slowly growing back down to cover where the plaque had burrowed below the gum line. My gums don’t bleed anymore and I’ve never seen my mouth healthier. This tea is incredible. My health has also significantly improved since I’ve been on it. I still get Fibromyalgia but I recover much much faster. I’m also using Chlorophyll which I think is having a marked impact on the mould and heavy metals too. Since the tea is proving to dissolve the biofilm, I also added Caprylic Acid and Berberine to kill parasites and aid my body in the clean up.

            1. Wyman

              Hi Debra,

              I have just started using Magnesium oil on my tooth brush to brush my teeth, but only after my normal herbal brushing and I have found that my sensitive teeth issue is resolved. I brush & spit but I do not rinse. Seems to be pretty good, I am vegan also so it adds :-)

      3. Debra

        I am hoping to try this as a tea too but found it in powder form. Is this what is referred to as the tea? I also Liposomed Artemisinin which I’ve been taking for about a week now, it tastes terrible but I know its very potent.

    As an electromagnetic engineer is more than a little bit unsettling to hear folks talk about EMF (electromagnetic force) as is it is ONE specific thing. Our “usable” electromagnetic (EM) spectrum goes from 1 Hertz up to approximately 100 Gigahertz: that’s a range of specific frequencies of 1 x 10 ^11 (10 to the power of 11). Folks, that is 100000000000 specific EMF frequencies therefore stating bothered by EMF means very little. There are many that use EMF to mean the frequency associated with our U.S. power line frequency of 60 Hz since this is the dominant frequency associated with anything we power using our power grid. Any one specific frequency or any band or multiple bands of frequencies could potentially affect our cells and any other living thing. That’s why it is so disconcerting when you hear folks talk about RIFE machines to treat various problems: what specific frequency or band of frequencies would one use over the (let us say) 100000000000 available frequencies? Then above and beyond that what do we do to this single or band of frequencies to add information to the constant frequency? Any usable frequency around us has to have some intelligence “mixed” with the constant frequency or it would not be useful to transfer intelligence. There are many forms of intelligence, which is what engineers call MODULATION that are used to put decipherable intelligence on these frequencies. We can just give it amplitude modulation (AM – like your old radio’s), we can give it frequency modulation (FM- like our newer radio’s) and many other forms of modifying any specific frequency or band of frequencies. So how does anyone know what particular FREQUENCY and what particular MODULATION has an affect on any specific bacteria or any specific person? I suspect some well funded organization would have to spend a considerable amount of money on a cross-discipline team of medical and engineering personnel to construct an EM/biological experiment in a very controlled environment to determine what FREQUENCIES with what MODULATIONS affect what bacteria (or any other item you want to test).

    Therefore, using the very generic EMF terminology or RIFE terminology actually means very little when it comes to identifying specific electromagnetic fields that might bother people or organisms. A small group of people would have to spend a short lifetime to try to figure this out. If this were accomplished and proven effective, we would have RIFE machine that would look like a radio that would have specific frequencies to tune, with a specific modulation that would correspond to diseases, bacteria that would be the equivalent to specific RADIO stations on our normal radio’s.

    Until we are blessed to be shown some very controlled experiments with repeatable and verifiable results against a range of diseases, bacteria (etc.) one would be hard pressed to accept generic statements that seem to exist in the open literature. Remember that Tom Cruise movie punch line; “show me the money”? We should be saying show me the proof.

    1. Mimi

      You are so right with this comment. Much more study and analysis needs to be done by people trained in electromagnetics, not just natural health professionals. But there is no entity with interest or big money to pursue it, at least not now.

    2. Elevator

      David Dixon,
      Of course nobody is talking about “just EMF”.
      Very early on, RIFE himself started compiling a list of frequencies / modulations versus target ailments or critters.
      The list has been continually expanded and is now huge. You can find it on the web.
      Many “RIFE Machines” have most settings already programmed.
      By this I am not meaning to endorse anything, just to point out that your judgment is missing important information, FWIW.

      On the other hand, I am a bit puzzled to learn that some molds thrive in an EMF-rich environment: “…the one exposed to EMF had 600 times more toxic biotoxins and its growth rate was dozens of times faster.”
      Interesting article nevertheless,

    3. Sophie

      Check into This microbiologist has developed a process that determines the frequencies that will kill a specific pathogen.

  10. Jeny

    Very interesting. I knew that my EMF sensitivity came from my toxic mold exposure, but I’ve never heard of the EMFs + mold = increased mycotoxins. So maybe what I’m interpreting as “EMF sensitivity/EHS” is really just mycotoxin symptoms.

    I’ve noticed the resistance to therapies that seem to be most helpful. Interesting to see an MD talk about this. And VERY interesting to see he follows the 5 levels of healing. I haven’t paid much attention to his work before now, but I will have to check it out.

    1. hellaD

      Yes it is very strange stuff, multi-layered, just when I think I know what is going on there is another layer to discover. But I would never say “just” mycotoxin symptoms those are the worst and the EMF doesn’t help it is a lot like having a parasite and often they all go together it seems :(

  11. Tracee

    Very interesting! It seems as though EMF is starting to creep into view a bit more.
