Can RTT™ help you be a Lyme Warrior?

Dr Richard Horowitz, statement ‘Be a Lyme Warrior’ refers to the need for those with chronic Lyme disease to address the unsolved stress, trauma or conflicts which are weakening the immune system and preventing wellness.

Dr Richard Horowitz, is one of the top Infectious Diseases doctors who has treated over 12.000 people with chronic Lyme disease in the United States.  Over the past 30 years he developed a model that is the 16-point health care map that he calls MSIDS (Multiple Systemic Infectious Disease Syndrome). What he found for those who are chronically ill who came to see him is that they don’t just have Lyme disease. They usually have co-infections like Babesiosis which is a malaria-like parasite, and many have Bartonella which is a form of cat scratch fever. We also find that people usually have other overlapping causes of inflammation apart from chronic infections.  

However it was his quote on the Online Lyme Summit 2, which really struck a chord when he said the words “Be a Lyme Warrior”.  He was referring to the people he see who have the most difficult time healing from Lyme disease and these are the people with anxiety, trauma and PTSD or a history of trauma and abuse – think Adverse Childhood Events (ACES’s).

He also writes about this is his books, extract from How can I get better, “The mind and body do not function separately, and when there has been trauma or abuse, or if you have suffered a loss, the unresolved conflict usually has a deleterious effect on your immune system”.  He goes as far as saying that some people at an unconscious level, believe that they need to suffer.

“Be a Lyme Warrior” – Dr Richard I. Horowitz, MD

Dr Horowitz isn’t the only leading MD in the field of Lyme disease to discuss this.  Dr Klinghardt, studied medicine and psychology in Germany, and grew up with Reinhold Voll (inventor of EAV) as his family physician.  Dr Klinghardt explained at Autism solutions, how disappointed he was when he got to medical school and sat in his lectures wondering when they were going to be taught real medicine. His is also one of the worldwide leading experts in the field of Lyme disease and teaches his method of ART worldwide.  During the 1980’s he developed the 5 levels of healing, and fully appreciates the importance of considering  a combination of techniques to address the third and fourth levels of healing, the mental body and the intuitive body.

In his recent talk ‘The 7 Factors of Wellness’ for Health Immunity 2019 –, Dr Klinghardt talks about the importance of psychotherapy as part of the construct of health and  “about half of this whole pie is your psychology” and that “a chronic illness is a bad habit of the brain”, recommending cleaning up your personal biography and that of your family.

He goes on to talk about the power of the brain to produce any chemical that can either make you ill or well, and how it is by far the most powerful frequency generator, mirroring what was controversially written by Napoleon Hill in the 1937 – Think and Grow Rich and Dr Bruce Lipton in The Biology of Belief

How can Psychotherapy help symptoms of Lyme disease?

There are many popular tools and techniques within psychotherapy which can help to restructure memories and the pain of emotional expereinces such as

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It’s most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems.

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach  using perceptual, behavioral, and communication techniques to make it easier for people to change their thoughts and actions and can be used for personal development, phobias, and anxiety.

Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) is growing in popularity, particularly for treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a form of counseling intervention that draws on various theories of alternative medicine including acupuncture, neuro-linguistic programming, energy medicine, and Thought Field Therapy (TFT).  Often known as Tapping.  People use EFT in order to reduce tension, promote a deeper mind-body connection, and manage symptoms of anxiety, depression or stress.

The Organ-Mind-body Connections is well documented by people such as Louise Hay in her book – You Can Heal Your Life, helping people understand that our thoughts create our life experiences.  And in the book Your Body Keeps The Score – Bessel Van de Kolk, provides an authoritative guide to the effects of trauma, and the pathways to recovery.  

Organisations such as Lifestyle Prescriptions®, teaching the Art and Science of Self-Healing to radically improve confidence, skills & health outcomes by finding the Root-Cause Stress Triggers, Emotions, Beliefs & Lifestyle Habits of 1,000+ Symptoms.

As bioresonance practitioners we always look at they symptom-emotion correlation during screening and Bach & Bush flowers essences can be enlightening and provide clues to internal conflict or emotional stressors. 

RTT™ be a Lyme Warrior?

Rapid Transformational Therapy embraces many of the positive aspects of hypnosis and hypnotherapy that are known to produce a transformative effect on clients: the use of trance, regression and hypnotic conditioning. However RTT goes beyond, diagnosing what works with clients to build a new therapeutic approach.  RTT does not rely solely on positive reinforcement.  RTT therapists are equipped with an array of techniques and tools that are crucial, not just in teaching you how to communicate with your subconscious mind, but also directly accessing and fixing whatever blockages may be there. Central to that is the ability to transform many clients in a single session.


“My ability to do that doesn’t come from a single methodology; it comes from the unique layering of techniques and beliefs that I created and now teach.” Marisa Peer


When it comes to psychotherapies, there are a lot of different methodologies out there to explore. Rapid Transformational Therapy, or RTT, is one-of-a-kind and its ethos is guided by the unconventional idea that you don’t need a lifetime to learn, master and then change the processes of the mind.

RTT has the added—and crucial—step of not only teaching you how to communicate with your subconscious mind, but also directly accessing and fixing whatever blocks may be there. Using the regression technique, clients are able to reach breakthroughs via hypnosis that would not be possible if they were simply trying to reach their subconscious mind via altered language and self-talk.

RTT is far more all-encompassing as a treatment method. While learning how to dialogue with your mind is a part of the method, it is often not enough if you have experienced severe trauma, emotional hurt, or are struggling with addictions or phobias. Marisa Peer, who developed the technique is a a great believer that you cannot fix what you don’t understand and RTT works by first understanding how you got your issues and then freeing you from them for good using a method I created called Role, Function and Purpose of any issue.

It also has a huge healing element that uses command therapy to activate the body’s ability to heal and restore itself to wellness.  Many Doctors who have trained with Maris have commented that what RTT does is a form of neuroplasticity, as RTT is creating new neural pathways in the mind while simultaneously removing of old unhelpful ones. 

There are some common beliefs that RTT practitioners look for to help their clients get their breakthrough, so if you think this could be right for you, the look at the following questions:

 Do you feel  stuck with your symptoms and feel that no matter what you do, you are not getting better?
 Are you aware of emotional trauma in you past?
 Does being ill make you feel like a failure?
Have you given up hope of feeling well again
