Alzheimers and spirochete DNA connection – Dr. Alan B. MacDonald

Excerpted from St Catherine of Siena Medical Center

This is where St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center Pathologist Dr. Alan B. MacDonald weighs in. Dr. MacDonald believes that a paradigm shift in the direction of a non-genetic cause might be in order. His hypothesis is derived from the model of another potentially brain-wasting disease, a spirochetal infection (syphilis), which shows many parallels with Borrelia infections such as lyme disease, both of which respond to, and in early stages are curable by, a simple antibiotic treatment. With the approval of St. Catherine’s Institutional Review Board and a small grant from the Turn the Corner Foundation, Dr. MacDonald conducted a molecular study of Alzheimer’s disease to test his hypothesis using brain tissue obtained from the Harvard Medical School brain tissue.

  1. The St Catherine’s link no longer exists. You can find additional information at:


  2. I have been receiving treatment for Lyme(MS) through Dr. Jemsek for approximately 3 years now, with a great deal of success. I just read an article (backed by numerous studies) stating that when the western fence lizard is the blood meal for an infected tick, that the borrelia bacteria is eliminated. This, for obvious reasons, opens up a whole new line of research for brilliant researchers such as yourself. I would think that this could be a very promising avenue to explore. Please let me know if you would like to know the article source. Thank you, Linda Harned

    • Linda,
      I am very pleased that you are having success with your treatment. The road to identifying that Lyme is your problem is a long and frustrating one; not to mention expensive. I am also pleased to hear that Dr. Jemsik’s practice is surviving after all the attacks on him from the medical establishment.

      There have been several promising developments with regard to Lyme research over the past year. And yes, the fence lizard is exciting. I do think that we are still years away from any pharmaceutical solution to this pandemic.

      For those, like myself, who have spent years on antibiotics without any resolution, I do agree with Dr. Rau that the best course of action to combat Lyme and many other illnesses is to build up your immune system.

      I have witnessed several chronic Lyme patients much worse them myself regain near-perfect health from an intense immune rebuilding protocol and customized herbal remedies.

      I wish you the best with your treatment.
