Chlorella: A Natural Alternative to Cholestyramine

A few months ago, I began taking Cholestyramine  

Initially, promising results manifested, clearing up my daily dreaded evening brain fog. As time went on, though, I came to equally dread taking it along with the two hours after doing so, because it put me in an incredible about of pain.

The LLMD who prescribed it to me said, “your body will get used to it.” So, I pushed on, convinced I was being strong and braving the pain in order to heal.

On the contrary, though, my health suddenly started to rapidly decline and I became much sicker.

What you need to know if you take CSM and have Mycoplasma

Looking back on the situation dumbfounds me. It turned out I had Mycoplasma -a “negative” test result score is anything under 100, my score was 1,416. To top it off, guess what Mycoplasma devours? Cholesterol.
Guess what Cholestyramine  does? It lowers cholesterol, as it was initially created for individuals with high cholesterol.

And guess what cholesterol ACTUALLY is? …for a large majority of people, myself included, it’s GOOD for the body, makes the body more resilient to certain ailments, and an important part of any healing process as it plays a major role in healthy liver functioning . (1)

Once again, I was saved by Buhner, who provided me with this information in his latest book on Mycoplasma and Bartonella. In the book, he firmly states that taking cholesterol lowering drugs when you have Mycoplasma is contraindicated and never advised.


Further Complications of CSM and The Lyme Complex

Having a gene mutation where I cannot detox properly put me in a bind. Cholestyramine  seemed to be my golden ticket for ridding my body of biotoxin buildup, but while it may  have ridded me of toxins, it also progressed my Mycoplasma infection as well.

Still, I  desperately needed a solution for my detox problem, and searched endlessly for an  alternative.

Chlorella: Alternative to CSM that’s packed with other health benefits too

Turns out, chlorella not only works just as well as Cholestyramine , it has a  wealth of other benefits too. Not to mention, it is great for Mycoplasma. While many  have had success with Cholestyramine , others have expressed how horribly sick it made  them.

So, I thought I would post this in the event that you A) have Mycoplasma (you can  get a reliable blood test for it from Labcorp), or B) you simply want a natural alternative  to Cholestyramine. The added bonus, of course, is that chlorella has an incredible amount of other health benefits as well. Some of which I compiled below:

Benefits of Chlorella (Besides Being A Binding Agent)

Personal experience and research has proven Chlorella to be one of the most important life sustaining and healing agents available to us, as it contains a higher content of chlorophyll than any other food source. Chlorophyll is the naturally occurring molecule in plants responsible for giving them their green color and for making photosynthesis, and therefore life, possible.  Photosynthesis converts water, carbon dioxide and energy from the sun into glucose, which is our number one source of fuel in life. Literally all life forms–animals, plants, and humans alike- gain their life sustaining energy from photosynthesis, a process virtually impossible without the existence of chlorophyll, making chlorophyll absolutely essential to our health. Its ability to detoxify the blood, bowels and liver is unparalleled.

Chlorella is considered to be a first class detoxifying agent capable of removing alcohol from the liver, as well as clearing HEAVY METALS, certain pesticides, herbicides, and polychlorbiphenyls (PCBs) from body tissue. In Japan, interest in chlorella has focused largely on this super food’s ability to remove or neutralize poisonous substances in the body from environmental pollution and/or ingestion of contaminated foods. Researches in Japan discovered that chlorella helps DETOX URANIUM and LEAD from the body.

The breakdown of RNA and DNA in the cells is believed to be a major factor in degenerative diseases such as Lyme disease and Lyme co-infections.  Chlorella’s abundant RNA content along with its powerful abilities to detoxify the blood and liver, heal and rejuvenate tissues, multiply the growth of beneficial bacteria in the bowels, boost the immune system, fight free-radical damage, and rebuild nerve tissue damage throughout the body makes it an excellent candidate for treating degenerative brain and nerve disorders such as neurological Lyme disease, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.Thanks to the high amounts of  chlorophyll it contains, chlorella also supports the optimum functioning and cleaning of the liver, which is extremely important when treating Lyme and Lyme co-infections. Also, it effectively absorbs toxins from the liver.  

 Dosing recommendations vary, depending on the source. Many suggest taking 1/4 cups    daily to counteract long-term deficits from chronic disease. However, I am a firm believer  that the body decides the proper dosage for each of us, not the label on the body.                  

Personally, I find 1 tablespoon of powdered chlorella mixed with water to be sufficient at    the moment. I intend to up my dosage to 1 tablespoon three times a day (my system is        sensitive, so I try to be gentle with it). Using a food grade source such as this, rather than  supplements, allows your system to absorb more of it. Ordering it in bulk powder form    and then placing it in a green smoothie or mixing it with water is not only more    beneficial, but is much cheaper than continually purchasing capsules.

** I prefer ordering a pound of  the bulk powder form of chlorella from 1st Chinese Herbs, which has proven to be one of the most trustworthy and reliable herb sources for me. You can find it here:

  8. Well, I felt like invisible hands were under my skin ripping my muscles and tissues apart for 6 hours a day! Ha!

  9. Thank you for this info! I have been on cholestyramine for several weeks now, but have some chorella in my fridge and have been wondering about the differences/similarities. I will probably try it now!

    1. Awesome! It is working just as well, if not better, for me than Cholestyramine because it is doing the same thing (clearing my brain fog entirely), without the pain, and it’s packed with an astonishing amount of other benefits as well. I was equally pumped to find this out. Of course, this is not to say Cholestyramine is a bad thing. It has been a life saver for so many, allowing them to return to their normal lives. It was for me, at first, until it blew up my mycoplasma.

      I wish you all the best!

      1. I am curious what you mean when you say it causes you pain, what sort of pain? I have not noticed any effects from it, positive or negative, that i am aware of at least. But I have a friend who believes it messed up her gallbladder, and that makes me nervous. Plus your post lists so many good things about chorella, that the bag sitting in my fridge has begun calling my name even louder than it was before!
