Re: Zhang Protocol

From "Everything You Need to Know About Lyme Disease", Karen V. Forschner, (1997) @ p.74: "No single medical specialist has the ideal training to handle a case of Lyme disease, but I recommend that you seek medical care from your family physician, internist or pediatrician. These experts are traine...

Re: Antibiotic-refractory Lyme arthritis

Diagnosee, I fear I'm getting too far off topic for this thread, but I just came across a fascinating tidbit about sleep and TNF-alpha / IL-6 markers that I wanted to share with you. It does make me wonder how much influence sleep and other factors (e.g. diet and exercise) might have on inflammator...

Re: Antibiotic-refractory Lyme arthritis

Autoimmunity (and more precisely, immune dysfunction), may not always be reflected in those biomarkers that doctors have traditionally relied upon (e.g. TNF-alpha), and not everyone with Lyme disease is necessarily experiencing immune dysfunction. That said, infections of any kind do involve the im...

Re: Antibiotic-refractory Lyme arthritis

Diagnosee, I have been rereading my post above, and now realize that I left out two major points that I intended to include. That's likely due to lack of sleep more than anything else. 1) A persistent borrelia infection can indeed co-exist with one or more autoimmune disorders. Although I am geneti...

Re: Antibiotic-refractory Lyme arthritis

Dysregulation of CD4+CD25hi+ T cells in the synovial fluid of patients with antibiotic-refractory Lyme arthritis. CONCLUSION.: Patients with antibiotic-refractory Lyme arthritis often had lower frequencies of Treg, higher expression of activation co-receptors, and less effective inhibition of pro-i...

Re: 3-Hour IV Destroys Biofilm

Why? If Aucott and Shor can publish, why not others? Was unaware Shor had any published work but as a former patient of his for three months I'm interested to see what exactly was published. After he wanted to continue orals on me, a chronic lyme neuroborelliosis patient, and not go the IV route, I...

Re: 3-Hour IV Destroys Biofilm

I would also gladly upload the footage she saved me from my live blood microscopy session. She utilizes phase contrast with back lit slides using blood pricked from the patients middle finger, preferably early morning and hydrated. Found some very interesting stuff, although I had "rouleau", essenti...

Re: The big YouTube videos topic

Wow, I was unaware anyone had a sense of humour here.. I kid though. I found a funny little video. This guy is doing a vlog in the forest and he's talking in this highly contrived "infomercial" voice. He seems sincere and I'll just go ahead and trust him on a hunch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6...

Re: 3-Hour IV Destroys Biofilm

"Spanky": I was under the impression that ILADS views 'chronic Lyme' as a very EXPENSIVE disease that requires months and months of ivs and repeated office visits. And, the IDSA, on the other hand, says that Lyme disease is a very INEXPENSIVE disease that can be treated with about $100 of generic a...
