Low Cholesterol Could Be A Mycoplasmal Problem!

Often mycoplasmal infections remain without symptoms until the victim suffers a traumatic event (stress, injury, accident etc.) These stressing events enable the mycoplasma to begin consumption of cholesterol and symptoms may begin to present. The mechanism of this deterioration is thought to be suppression of the immune system secondary to stress.

Your Brain Needs Cholesterol

Cholesterol is vitally important for brain function. While your brain represents about 2-3% of your total body weight, 25% of the cholesterol in your body is found in your brain, where it plays important roles in such things as membrane function, acts as an antioxidant, and serves as the raw material from which we are able to make things like progesterone, estrogen, cortisol, testosterone and even vitamin D.

Antibiotics Ineffective Against Cysts and Biofilms of Lyme Disease

Ineffective Antibiotics

Antibiotics, conventional or holistic, can only kill the bacteria when it is exposed.  If Borrelia is concealed within a biofilm, antibiotics have no way of penetrating and become ineffective.  In order for antibiotics to kill the bacteria that resides within a biofilm, it will require the assistance of a biofilm dissolver.

Stealth

Biology professor, Lida Mattman, author of Cell Wall Deficient Forms: Stealth Pathogens, has been able to recover live spirochetes of Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb) from mosquitos, fleas, mites, semen, urine, blood, and spinal fluid. A factor contributing to making Bb so dangerous is that it can survive and spread without having a cell wall (cell wall deficient CWD). Many valuable antibiotics kill bacteria by breaking down the cell wall. These antibiotics often prove ineffective against Bb.
cyst form and lyme disease. Borrelia Burgdorferi is capable of transforming into a cyst when it feels its life is threatened. While in cyst form, Borrelia obtains immunity from antibiotics, its host’s immune system, and temperature and PH variations.

Lyme Disease Organisms Are In The Blood Supply

The Sacramento, California blood bank believes that Lyme Disease (LD) can be spread by blood transfusions. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) in Atlanta, Georgia states that their data indicates that Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb) can survive without detection by the blood processing techniques used for transfusions in the U.S.

Lyme Disease Organisms In Cows Milk

Researchers at the Univ. of Wisconsin have reported that dairy cattle can be infected with Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb) hence milk could be contaminated. Bb can also be transmitted to lab animals by oral intake such as food.

Unpasteurized milk will be the most vulnerable.

Lyme Disease Can Cause Miscarriages

There is compelling evidence that Lyme disease (LD) can be spread by sexual and congenital transfer. One physician has cared for 5000 children with LD. 240 of these children were born with the disease. Dr. Charles Ray Jones, the leading pediatric specialist on Lyme Disease, has found 12 breast fed children who have developed LD. Miscarriage, premature births, stillborn, birth defects, and transplacental infection of the fetus have all been reported. Studies at the Univ. of Vienna have found Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb) in urine and breast milk of LD mothers.

Government Negligent Incompetence Worst Than Terrorists

Based on innumerable declassified government documents, scores of in-depth interviews, and access to Plum Island itself, this is an eye-opening, suspenseful account of a federal government germ laboratory gone terribly wrong. Read Lab 257 for a journey that will take you deep inside this secret world and presents startling revelations including virus outbreaks, biological meltdowns, infected workers who were denied assistance in diagnosis by Plum Island brass, the periodic flushing of contaminated raw sewage into area waters, and the insidious connections between Plum Island, Lyme disease, and the deadly 1999 West Nile virus outbreak.

The Microbiome Rules!

The microbiome of your gut is your primary brain connection, endocrine center, immune defense and emotion headquarters.

Dr. Susan Marra says, “Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacteria that causes Lyme Disease, also dramatically effects the healthy microbiome. If you imagine your microbiome as being a beautiful garden void of weeds, and then reimagine it as a weed orvergrown garden when you get infected with Lyme Disease or coinfections, you can quickly understand just how out of balance your microbiome becomes with tick-borne infections.”
Gut model studies showed that the best time to eat was during the day within a 12 hour window so that the MegaSporeBiotic could complete its life cycle within a 12 hour fasting time of not eating.

Inflammatory bowel disease

Acute onset gastrointestinal symptoms in patients with these
diseases are accompanied by seroconversion to specific viral
or M. pneumoniae antigens. As indicated earlier,
mycoplasmas can elicit pleiotropic immune responses and are
difficult to eliminate in patients despite appropriate
antibiotic treatment. Steroid therapy to control
gastrointestinal symptoms in these patients, along with the
multifaceted biological properties associated with
pathogenic mycoplasmas, may precipitate the onset of acute
exacerbations of chronic inflammatory bowel disease.
Rheumatoid Arthritis and Other Human Arthritides The
occurrence of various Mycoplasma and Ureaplasma species in
joint tissues of patients with rheumatoid arthritis,
sexually transmitted reactive arthritis, and other human
arthritides can no longer be ignored (8). A clinical trial
of longterm (6 to 12 months) antibiotic (doxycycline)
therapy before cartilage destruction might prove beneficial
in managing such frequent and often debilitating infections.
Extensive clinical and microbiological evidence indicates
that mycoplasmas alone can elicit a spectrum of illness for
which no other agents are incriminated. The eradication of
these pathogenic mycoplasmas from various tissue sites
requires an intact and functional immune system, although
persons with fully competent immune systems may have
difficulty eliminating mycoplasmas, even with recommended
prolonged drug therapy. Nonetheless, mycoplasmas are still
viewed as subordinates to other infectious agents and are
relegated to a category of commensals that unwittingly
cause disease in patients whose immune systems offer little
resistance to microbial stress and overload. The
fundamental importance of mycoplasmas in specific diseases
of humans, animals, insects, and plants is irrefutable, and
their unique biological properties are consistent with
their intimate association with host target cells. These
remarkable bacteria must continue to receive the scientific
attention of mycoplasmologists, cell culturists,
clinicians, immunologists, and DNA sequencers who most
recently are compiling extensive databases that may
eventually dissect every approachable mycoplasmal element
that defines their biological and genetic being.
Nonetheless, mycoplasmas remain mysterious and enigmatic,
and the available data and proposed hypotheses that
correlate mycoplasmas with disease pathogenesis range from
definitive, provocative, and titillating to inconclusive,
confusing, and heretical. Controversy seems to be a
recurrent companion of mycoplasmas, yet good science and
openmindedness should overcome the legacy that has burdened
them for decades.
