There is another site about the Salt & Vitamin C Protocol: http://www.fettnet.com/lymestrategies/, which also has a discussion forum: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/lymestrategies/. These sites often refer to lymephotos.com.Lymephotos.com is not a business. It produces no, zero, zilch income and this was by design. We have no connections to, do not endorse, and do not really enjoy others trying to profit monetarily from our work. Our site exists only to inform and help. If we change our policy you will find such changes prominently and plainly stated on this site itself. And if you have any ideas for how we might alter our site to help you feel free to write!
The owner of fettnet.com is Marc Fett (AKA firefox), who gives the impression that he has no connections with lymephotos.com, but has only refined the protocol. Marc Fett seems to "profit monetarily" from the protocol, though, because people have to pay $29.95 to gain access to an "Advanced Resource Section", which includes a "How-to" eBook:
Also interesting is the statement that fettnet.com acts as an "interface" in forwarding the findings of lymephotos.com:What is the Advanced Resource Section exactly?
In addition to this eBook, the Resource Section is for references, research and updates on an ongoing basis to assist in enhancing and making the research protocol the most effective possible.
What is the cost?
The cost of the Advanced Resource Section is $29.95. It is intentionally meant to be low-cost so that anyone, even those on limited funds, are able to participate and benefit. It is basically the average price of a bottle of supplements. Proceeds are intended toward organized trials of the research protocol, with the goal of getting it broadly disseminated and seriously lab-studied. To sign-up now, click here.
Although the authors of lymephotos.com wish to remain anonymous, one of their names is mentioned several times on the "Lyme Strategies" forum: Nancy Stone, who registered lymephotos.com. In April, 2007, Marc Fett wrote in a message found on http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/ly ... sage/50721:The Lymephotos site was established by private individuals who found, after a long, unsuccessful and debilitating effort at antibiotic treatment for lyme, that a particular research protocol yielded positive effect (alleviation of symptoms).
The full discussion and presentation of this protocol is given on that site and we encourage that it be read carefully in its entirety.
The individuals at that site have stated there that they have presented their findings but wish to remain anonymous. This research site acts as an "interface" in forwarding the findings, conducting further research and as a "clearinghouse" for lyme strategies in general.
So, Nancy Stone is friends with someone who seems to profit monetarily from her work? That's odd, because the statement on lymephotos.com says: “We have no connections to, do not endorse, and do not really enjoy others trying to profit monetarily from our work”.Thought y'all might be interested in a note excerpt from one of the
Lymephotos's founders of the S/C protocol, my dear friend, Nancy
There has also been a Nancy Stone who posted on the newsgroup sci.psychology.psychotherapy several years ago. It could be a different person, but she started a very striking thread called "why testimonials are unreliable" in March, 1999. In her first post she wrote:
Following is an excerpt from today's listing of science results in the
news, provided by the listserv generated by Sigma Xi, the scientific
honor society. I think it illustrates the dangers of relying upon
untested remedies. It also illustrates that anything can gain
testimonial support, no matter how ineffective.
VITAMIN O PRODUCTS ARE FRAUD, AGENCY SAYS
from The New York Times
The Federal Trade Commission has accused two companies of bottling salt
water, labeling it "Vitamin O" and selling it as a dietary supplement for
$10 an ounce. The agency said the companies claimed that the product would
treat cancer, high blood pressure, lung disease, headaches, infections,
colds, flu and other ailments.
In advertisements in USA Today and other newspapers, and on the Internet,
the companies -- Rose Creek Health Products Inc. and The Staff of Life Inc.,
in Kettle Falls, Wash. -- have asserted that their product "purifies your
bloodstream, maximizes nutrients, eliminates poisons and toxins."
A testimonial on the companies' Web site, supposedly from someone with lung
cancer, emphysema and heart disease, states: "Three days after starting the
Vitamin O, I threw my cane away. In November, we went to Arizona and I
bought myself a bicycle."

In her second post in the same thread she wrote:
Now, doesn't that apply just perfectly to lymephotos.com and fettnet.com?!When someone wishes to make lots of money without providing value, why
bother pouring saltwater into jars? You can make just as much money
talking without the hassle of manufacturing any product. The main
drawback is that people are more suspicious when there is nothing
concrete being given them for their money. Thus the need to invent
some hocus-pocus that will make sense unless you inspect it too
closely. You tell me why an anecdote is useless when it comes to
testing pharmaceuticals, but not when it comes to talk therapy. Do
you think people are less accurate in monitoring their physical states
than their mental ones?
