Brain lesions that show concentric circles is a hallmark of Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis. But it is also a hallmark of Toxoplasmosis gondii infection.

Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis Prognosis: Spontaneous Remission and Prolonged Survival Is More Common Than You’d Think


Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis, which was also known in the past as Leukoencephalitis Periaxialis Concentrica, is a rare subtype of Multiple Sclerosis according to the medical literature. But patients with Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis not only experience a demyelination of nerve fibers, they also develop concentric “bulb eye” or “onion bulb” lesions in the white matter of the brain. And while the general consensus among doctors is that Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis is incurable, our staff at have found several scientific case studies outside of the United States saying that not only is Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis curable (potentially), but it may even be self-limiting wherein patients spontaneously recover.


What really caught our eye about this research has to do with research that we recently conducted involving epilepsy, another disease like Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis that involves seizures. But epilepsy is not nearly as rare as the Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis diagnosis so there’s a lot more research to reference regarding epilepsy and a lot more scientists who have looked closely at epilepsy in comparison with Balo’s Sclerosis. Importantly, many doctors outside of the United States recognize that like Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis, epilepsy patients can spontaneously recover or have “prolonged survival”. And this is significant because in developing countries, most doctors are aware of the fact that epilepsy, or rather seizures, can be caused by neurocysticercosis or a tapeworm infection that involves the brain. And they know that, for this reason, their misdiagnosed epilepsy patients will spontaneously recover if the tapeworm infection goes away. 


Indeed a patient who receives the proper diagnosis of neurocysticercosis can be given medicine to kill the tapeworms and rebuild the immune system effectively getting rid of the patient’s seizures and other epilepsy symptoms.


It’s crucial to understand how this kind of misdiagnosis can affect the patient’s life because a tapeworm infection can be treated and it can be cured. But interestingly, when we looked just briefly into the scientific literature for a Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis cure, what we found right away was not a link between tapeworms and Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis, but rather a link between this disease and the following diseases / infections: 



Balo’s Sclerosis Misdiagnosed


Though all of the above infections are correlated with the presence of lesions in the brain, Toxoplasmosis and Balo’s Sclerosis have concentric brain lesions in common, which is compelling because a doctor (or radiologist) could easily misdiagnose one for the other. One study states for example that “the concentric target sign is a typical sign for cerebral toxoplasmosis.” 

If you feel like you’ve received a Balo’s Sclerosis misdiagnosis, you might be right. The fact that this disease often clears up on its own suggests that it is an infection. And the fact that there are a number of case studies linking infectious pathogens that tend to linger in the body for longer period of time with Balo’s Sclerosis further substantiates the idea that in at least certain cases, Balo’s Sclerosis may actually be a different disease entirely. And while it may not seem hopeful to believe that the concentric brain lesions are being caused by a tuberculosis infection or by infection with human papillomavirus or toxoplasmosis, these infections can be cured. Indeed, our research into autoimmune disease shows that all of them have strong correlations to infectious pathogens. And our studies into the liver and gallbladder support the idea that these pathogens can live in the liver and in the gallbladder as well as in the lymph nodes surrounding the gut. Some pathogens take up residence in the brain and nervous system. And while antibiotics are not able to kill these pathogens, often Reactive Oxygen Species medicines with Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) can. 


We’ve written quite a bit about how to manifest a Toxoplasmosis cure naturally using herbs, Chlorine Dioxide Solution, Rife Therapy, and more that we’ll link to at the bottom of this page (also be sure to see our resources section at the very bottom of the page for links to the scientific articles that talk about spontaneous recovery from Balo’s Sclerosis and the fact that the recent availability of MRI technologies has shown that Balo’s Sclerosis may not be as rare or as fatal as scientists initially thought). In other words, a number of patients who were diagnosed with Balo’s Sclerosis before MRIs were widely used, may have had brain lesions and these patients may have recovered their health at some point spontaneously without doctors ever realizing that they had this disease.

Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis Holistic Approach

If you or a loved one recently received a diagnosis of Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis / Leukoencephalitis Periaxialis Concentrica, there are several important pieces of information that might help you overcome this disease. We’ll summarize these thoughts below to provide patients with a breadcrumb trail of hope to follow to find additional information. There are several layers of treatment that a patient with this disease would need in order to overcome this disease:


  1. Regain full-functioning of the immune system.
  2. Kill the infecting agent that is causing the brain lesions
  3. Heal the nervous system tissues


Thought #1: Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) is an over-the-counter FDA-approved drug that has a toxicity level similar to that of water. It can be combined with certain medications like chemotherapy to potentiate them. But it can also be combined with antibiotics if your doctor is willing to do DMSO-Potentiation Therapy. Or you can combine DMSO with Chlorine Dioxide Solution / Miracle Mineral Solution. DMSO has the broadest medicinal action on the planet and one of it’s most valuable features is that it has the ability to heal nervous system tissues and brain tissues. Learn more about DMSO and how to use it to cure Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis and other diseases in this book. Also consider reading here about how DMSO has been used by multiple sclerosis patients to overcome the disease. And finally, this Russian scientific study talks about the use of DMSO to remyelinate and the heal nervous system tissues in those with multiple sclerosis.



Thought #2: Follow the Disease Family Tree approach to finding a Balo’s Sclerosis cure. We’ve written a lot about Disease Family Trees in terms of Parkinson’s Disease and Lewy Body Dementia as well as other neurological disorders, for example. A Disease Family Tree allows patients who have been diagnosed with a rare, but serious disease to follow leads from other, similar diseases to find cures that may not have been studied yet in terms of a specific diagnosis like Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis.


Thought #3: Use super-broad spectrum, powerful antimicrobial agents like Reactive Oxygen Species medicines to kill the pathogen that is causing the disease. Read about both Chlorine Dioxide Solution / Miracle Mineral Supplement and Dimethylsulfoxide in our books to better understand what to expect when you begin treatment with this medicine. Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) has the ability to regenerate nerve tissues as well as brain tissues. It is an FDA-approved medicine with the broadest medicinal action of any substance currently listed on the books. But do take the time to learn how to use it safely. Don’t take it with prescription medications because it can enhance the power of these meds (which is an effect that can be used in medicinal ways, but that should not be ignored by patients who are not familiar with how to use DMSO safely). Note that DMSO has been used to stop the progression of Alzheimer’s disease

Thought #4: Use high pH therapy to make Reactive Oxygen Species medicines even more powerful against an even broader range of pathogens. In this article, we discuss high pH therapy using Cesium, but Cesium is hard to get these days in the U.S. and other developed countries. So we recommend that patients use a combination of Lithium Orotate and Ionic Rubidium instead. Cesium therapy is a powerful cancer cure and Lithium, Rubidium, and Cesium are all in the same chemical family on the periodic table of the elements. All of these elements (Cesium, Lithium, Rubidium) are present in healthy soils (which are practically non-existent in developed nations that use industrial farming practices) which means that these elements are normally supposed to consumed as naturally occurring substances in our fruits and vegetables. Note that Lithium Orotate is very different from lithium carbonate and lithium chloride, the drugs used to treat bipolar disorder. Lithium Orotate is a valuable trace mineral that is often found in drinking water in small quantities. It has powerful neurological and immunological benefits for patients with Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis.

Thought #5: Take Lugol’s Iodine 2%. Start with a low dose (1 drop daily) and increase it over time to rebuild the immune system. In this article, we talk about Lugol’s iodine as a treatment for parasite infections like Toxoplasmosis gondii. In this article, we talk about the use of potassium iodide (a component of Lugol’s iodine) as well as Quinoline and Sarsaparilla as a treatment for tuberculosis


Our Amazon links to powerful cures like Lugol’s Iodine often disappear mysteriously after we publish.

Thought #6: Take Vitamin B17. In this article, we talk about how vitamin B17 / Amygdalin deficiency contributes to the development of parasite infections and cancer. Note that vitamin B17 is found in high concentrations in apricot kernels.

Thought #7: Dr. Hulda Clark was an expert on parasite infections and she wrote a number of books describing her views on how parasite infections were often misdiagnosed as other supposedly “incurable” diseases. She specifically worked with vibrational medicine tools to kill parasites as well as how to get rid of gallstones and infectious pathogens that can live in the gallbladder and in the liver.


Thought #8: Do Enzyme Therapy to ensure that you properly digest your food and receive all of the ingredients that you need to cure Balo’s Concentric Sclerosis. 


Thought #9: Consume the Budwig quark smoothie to rebuild brain tissues with healthy fats and proteins. The fatty acids in this smoothie literally repel parasites and other pathogens from the brain.


Thought #10: Learn more about the use of Pinus strobus and Pinus palustris essential oils as cures specifically for neurological autoimmune diseases.


Thought #11: Learn more about fumaric acid as a cure for multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune diseases like psoriasis.
