Hi guys,

Just wanted to check in. Theres a new piece up on Bacteriality about diet and disease.

"Diet and Disease: Eating for Health"

http://bacteriality.com/2007/10/02/diet/

I also just put up an interview with Reenie (MP patient with CFS and fibro). Her story is particularly inspiring to me because many of my symptoms are similar to hers. She is doing very well.

http://bacteriality.com/2007/10/06/interview4/

Best,

Amy

Hi guys,

I just put up a new piece on Bacteriality. It covers exactly how the MP antibiotics work, how Benicar works, and also discusses why low-dose, pulsed antibiotics must be used in order to kill L-form bacteria effectively.

I think it's important to stress to doctors that Trevor selected the MP antibiotics based on years of research and precise knowledge of their effects at the molecular level.

Amy

Robert, Toni, Joyful...thank you for such nice comments. I'm so glad you enjoy the articles!

Just wanted to let you know that I just put a new piece up on the site called "Babies and Bacteria: How pathogens may affect an infant during the first weeks of life"

http://bacteriality.com/2007/10/17/infants/

I feel the research discussed in this article really sheds light on how a chronic disease develops - essentially many of the bacteria that we encounter during the first weeks of life can persist in our bodies and change the way our immune systems handles bacteria during the rest of our lives. I had several illnesses as a very young child and I'm sure those infections were the start of the CFS I developed later in life.

Best,

Amy

Hi!

There's a new article up on Bacteriality;

"Duke University researchers connect vitamin D to brain lesions"

http://bacteriality.com/2007/10/24/brain_lesions/

"....elderly men and women who consumed higher levels of calcium and, in particular, vitamin D are significantly more likely to have greater volumes of brain lesions, indicating regions of damage that can increase risk of cognitive impairment, dementia, depression and death."

Not very surprising to those of us on the MP, right?

Best,

Amy

Right!

I printed this right up and mailed it to a family member who is so very worried about getting dementia because of their parents experiences late in life.

Hopefully they will begin to look at things differently.

Dear Amy

I learned that you have a twin sister, me myslf have a twin brother suffering from bipolar dissorder and some day I atleast hope he will be given the possibility of doing his D-tests. 

The Noregian Sarc. Organisation claims sarcoidosis to be more prevelent amongst twins, but they cannot back this up by research. I wonder, have you ever commed across such papers?

BR

Martin

Hi Martin,

Yes I do have a twin sister. That's cool that you have a twin brother but I'm very sorry he's suffering from bipolar disorder. My boyfriend's brother has bipolar disorder so I'm learning more about how hard it is to manage the illness. I also hope that his brother will also eventually do the MP.

I am actually in the process of writing an article about how Th1 disease spreads in families. What's important to understand is that is not similar genes that caused both you and your twin to fall ill with Th1 disease, but rather the fact that you were both likely both exposed to a great deal of L-form bacteria.

I don't know of any studies that have looked at the incidence of sarcoidosis in twins, althought I am confident that if research was done on the subject it would be found that twins are definitely more likely to both fall ill with sarc seeing as they often pass around many of the same pathogens.

The following studies do point out that spouses and family members have a greater chance of developing sarc if other members of the family are infected with bacteria that cause the disease...

"A six-year study of the Th1 disease sarcoidosis, conducted by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Maryland found that among the 215 study participants who had been diagnosed with sarcoidosis, there were five husband-and-wife couples that both had the disease. Yet sarcoidosis is such a rare disease that based on statistics there should have been none. They also noted that the risk for sarcoidosis increased nearly five-fold in parents and siblings with the disease.

There have been other case reports of familial clustering of sarcoidosis. A case-controlled study of residents of the Isle of Man found that 40 percent of people with sarcoidosis had been in contact with a person known to have the disease, compared with 1 to 2 percent of the control subjects. One study reported three cases of sarcoidosis among 57 firefighters who apprenticed together."

Best,

Amy

Hey Amy,

Thanks for the post about Vit D and brain lesions.  I had heard about that and yet the October AARP has a comment by some sort of expert telling seniors to take calcium and Vit D.  I am not up to it, but I'd certainly appreciate someone putting together at least a succient letter to the editor of AARP about that with the link to the research you site.  (And also the research that shows that Vit D has not positive affect on bone gain.)

Perhaps they'd take a full length article if you wrote one.  (Giving them a letter to the editor as a back up perhaps.)

Thanks for all that you are doing, Claire

Hi Amy

Thank you for your answer, looking forward to your next article.

I will investigate this claim further since they so clearly state this and let you know.

Hello!

Martin - A glimpse at the people reporting on this study site is a clear example of how Th1 disease runs in families - in terms of bacteria being passed among family members. There are many couples and siblings on the MP.

EClaire,

Thanks for the heads up on the AARP article. There seems to be an article hyping "vitamin" D's "benefits" everywhere I look. It's the same 'ol claims, which are backed up with no actual science - at least in the terms of the fact that not one of them provides a model of what vitamin D actually DOES in the body in order to provide all these supposed benefits. In contrast, Trevor has mapped out myriad pathways and receptors affected by the secosteroid/hormone by using molecular modeling. Hmmm....I wonder who is right? AARP would be a good place to make a statement. Maybe I'll toy with writing a letter. I just wonder if they'd published it. We'll see....

There is also a new interview up on Bacteriality. It's an interview with Robyn Russel. Her son Matt started the MP with a host of severe symptoms and is now is very close to complete recovery. I smiled the entire time I wrote the piece because his story is so inspiring and such a clear example of the ability of the MP to dramatically change lives.

http://bacteriality.com/2007/10/28/interview6/

Best,

Amy

Amy, do you mean to suggest that you feel confident that his bipolar disorder is a result of Lyme or are there other Th1 disease L-Forms that often or even typically manifest symptoms of bipolar disorder?  Do you know of any good articles/research supporting this?

Thanks for the great work you're doing.

Jeff

Jeff,

There is only ONE Th1 disease!!!

All of the names that I suppose that you want to hear are sets of symptoms that the medical community have given names to in their ignorance of the cause... Th1 inflammation.

Pay attention to your reading!!!  :X  :D

Wishing all wellness!!!  :)

Dark Vader...aka, George

It looks like the Autoimmune Disease folk are also starting to realize that there is but one type of disease, and that it runs in families. Take a look at this advert for the AARDA on YouTube:

(somebody needs to let them know what we have been doing)

Hi Jeff,

That's right - all Th1 diseases have the same pathogenesis - they all result from infection by different forms of persistent bacteria. It is the species of bacteria that differ between people with different symptoms. The species of bacteria and other pathogens that a person accumulates over a lifetime (their infectious history) eventually determines what symptoms they develop.

On a separate note, I wanted to let you guys know that I have updated my vitamin D article based on a new paper written by Joyce Waterhouse PhD. I added a short discussion about the relationship of 25-D to Parathyroid Hormone based on her work. I feel it's important, because many doctors justify telling patients to supplement with vitamin D because they incorrectly think that it will lower PTH (elevated PTH has been linked to bone loss.)

Here is a link to Joyce's Article:

"Vitamin D, the Vitamin D Receptor and Chronic Disease -
Brain Lesions, Vascular Calcification and Osteoporosis:
Two Views of Vitamin D Supplementation and Parathyroid Hormone"
http://SynergyHN.com/lesions

It's definitely worth a read and an excellent document to show to doctors who are hesitant to accept the fact that vitamin D in not helpful in chronic disease.....
