The latest book
My microbes are me

Author: Ariane Zappe

Now available in German and English.

After laying the foundations for a new understanding of the symbiosis between humans and germs in the book “ImmunSymbiosis”, the author summarizes her latest research in this field in this book. Only a paradigm shift in our daily interaction with microbes can lead us out of the crisis of chronic diseases. In addition to a profound understanding of this symbiosis, the author provides guidance on how to implement it in everyday life for therapists, patients and interested parties, backed up by nearly 200 scientific studies.


Ariane Zappe:

“Scientific studies suggest that streptococci might protect us from cancer and staphylococci from multiple sclerosis. Lactic acid bacteria apparently stimulate the development of human stem cells.

Don‘t we urgently need a profound re-thinking in dealing with microbes?

No microorganism is evil per se. Microbes, especially bacteria, viruses and retroviruses, are part of a million-year-old symbiosis in evolution. Only WITH microbes have we become what we are today. Germs and humans work symbiotically together everywhere in the organism, even in the brain. This is not only about joint survival, but above all about further development. That‘s what I call ImmunSymbiosis.

So how can we care for our microbes and protect them? The prevention and treatment of chronic, neurological or neurodegenerative diseases can only succeed if people AND microbes become healthy.

Based on scientific studies, my experiences from therapeutic practice and research, connections between diseases and microorganisms appear to me in a completely new light. I would like to invite you as interested reader, affected patient or therapist on a journey through the world of microbes, which could fundamentally change your point of view.”

ImmunSymbiosis – 2017

The beginning of a new chapter

The beginning 2017

Authors: Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D., and Ariane Zappe

Already in their first joint book “Die biologische Behandlung der Lyme- Borreliose” (The Biological Treatment of Lyme Disease), the two authors describe the modulation of the immune system as a crucial step in the treatment of chronic diseases.

With this book, they expand the concept of the immune system to include a complex, highly developed and highly organized interplay between microorganisms and the body’s own cells: the ImmunSymbiosis.

Both the human and microbial components work hand in hand to not only overcome trauma, conflict, and challenging environmental stresses together, but to use them for further development.

This cooperation, which has developed over millions of years, is now under immense pressure due to human changes: electromagnetic fields, the excessive use of antibiotics, herbicides and pesticides, toxins in the air we breathe, mercury, lead and aluminum, disinfection instead of microbial diversity, genetically modified and denatured foods or root-dead teeth that give the starting signal for decay, massively disrupt the symbiotic interaction and lead to chronic diseases of humans and the microbiome.

The shrinking diversity of our microbiome is the number one cause of disease.

Conventional medicine has its strengths, but it is often at a loss when it comes to treating chronic diseases. It was and is a negligence of Western medicine to look for the cause of disease in humans alone and to test therapies solely for their effect on humans.

All therapies of the future should primarily focus on the microbiomes in our organism.

The authors describe sensible, logical ways to regenerate our microbiome, how to restore the dialogue between the microbiome and the immune system, how even pathogenic germs can quickly learn to become productive parts of our microbiome that act symbiotically instead of pathogenically – how to restore ImmunSymbiosis and live.


Erratum german:

Seite 299:
“Spiegelmethode nach Dr. Klinghardt […] wurde 1995 von mir (Co-Autor DK) entdeckt, weiterentwickelt von Renzo Celani und schließlich 2016 wieder von mir (Co-Autor DK) neu in unsere Behandlungsmethoden integriert.”

Was den Anschein erwecken kann, dass es sich bei den Spiegeln und der Arbeit mit diesen, um die selben handelt. Dies ist nicht zutreffend.

Es handelt sich um 2 verschiedene Spiegelarbeiten und 2 verschiedene Systeme. Pionier Dr. Dietrch Klinghardt hat normale Flach- und Hohlspiegel in seinem Praxisalltag in Verwendung. Renzo Celani benutzt nur Spiegel aus 3 verschiedenen hochwertigen Metallen, alle immer mit vorgeschraubtem oder fest eingebautem Filter.

Der Text und die Gleichstellung der beiden Systeme war nicht in unserer Absicht.

Book: “Die Biologische Behandlung der Lyme-Borreliose”

Authors: Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, and Ariane Zappe.

Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, born in 1950, has been researching the toxic influences from the environment on our health: heavy metals, aluminum, herbicides, and radiation from mobile phones, in search of answers to the questions “Why do we get sick?” and “What makes us sick?” for his entire medical life. He has long recognized that infections with Borrelia and all the associated pathogens in the system form baleful synergies with these toxic factors – because germs thrive in poisoned environments – with devastating consequences for the immune system.


His answer to this is a carefully developed, well-founded biological treatment method in 4 phases, with which he has already led many seriously ill people back to health.


Together with the therapist Ariane Zappe, he presents in this book the diverse symptomatology and its special diagnostics and therapy. In the process, a work with bold and innovative thoughts has emerged, which for doctors, therapists and medically interested readers interdisciplinary completely new, plausible connections – supported by hundreds of studies.
