Rico - glad you enjoyed Paul's interview!

I put up a new piece today:

"Eye inflammation, vision, and bacteria"

http://bacteriality.com/2007/11/13/eyes/

You'll notice that my Mom is one of the MP patients who is happy with the resolution of her eye symptoms thanks to the MP. I'm very glad about that....

Amy

Just announcing another piece:

"Aging and the resurrection of the immune system"

http://bacteriality.com/2007/11/18/aging/

While writing this article I became truly convinced that I will indeed live a long and very healthy life.

By the way, happy early Thanksgiving to all. I have much to be thankful for with my improving health toping the list. I will be leaving tomorrow for a short T-giving vacation.

Best,

Amy

Hi,

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.

I just put up a new interview on Bacteriality - with Leesa Shanahan

http://bacteriality.com/2007/11/19/interview12/

She has three young kids and is active with them once again.

Hi,

I just put up an interview with Sherry Cook (scooker48 on this site) up on Bacteriality.

http://bacteriality.com/2007/11/19/interview13/

The success stories are adding up!

Amy

Hi,

As most of you hopefully know ARF needs to raise $5000 by the end of December to match a donation of the same amount that was given by a very generous family.

Carol suggested, and I agree, that perhaps in certain cases people might want to tell friends and family to donate to ARF in lieu of getting a Christmas present - basically have them donate to ARF the sum of money they would have put towards your gift.

Of course this doesn't mean that everyone should give up Christmas presents but in particular if you have family members that buy you gifts you never really end up using then the above strategy might be a good idea!

I wrote a template letter that people could use to send to friends and family.  It's availiable here:

http://friendsofarf.org/forum3/8.html

Of course it may have to be adapted a little from person to person but I think it's a good general template for anyone on the MP.

Best,

Amy

Hi,

I just put a new article up on Bacteriality.  It's called "Why the Marshall Protocol makes sense"

http://bacteriality.com/

in the course of interviewing people who have succeeded on the MP, I am frequently told that when they found the MP and Dr. Marshall's research it "just made sense!'

In this article I describe the top ten reasons why the MP makes sense to me.  I thought it might be a good way to show dubious family members and new MPers why we are certain that we will get our health back.

Amy

Bacteriality.com just got a redesign. The font size is a bit bigger. The columns are wider.

Still to do:
1. make the @$%^#! RSS feeds work

If you see anything else that I forgot or should think about doing, please let me know!

Thanks to Janet for helping me with the header.

Paul

Hi,

Just a quick post to let you know that Paul has written an article for Bacteriality.

'What can medical research learn from the open source software movement?"
http://bacteriality.com/2007/12/11/opensource/

Remember how Andy Grove criticized the slow pace of medical research? Well, in many ways this piece provides answers to some of his concerns. But it delves into other topics as well. I certainly learned a lot myself by reading the article!

Best,

Amy

Hi!  Paul and I are back from vacation in Mexico City.  I held up very well...yeah!  Now it's back to writing and continuing to learn more about more science related to the MP that never fails to fascinate me.

Today I put up a new interview.  It's with P. Bear R.N. - one of the extremely helpful moderators on this board.  His story is an inspiring one and he has conquered numerous conditions thanks to the MP.  PB himself wrote out the answers to the questions, I only edited them...

Here it is:

Hi!

Just announcing that a new article is up on Bacteriality which discusses the latest research on L-form bacteria carried out by a team of researchers in Spain. It turns out that when they replicate, L-form bacteria might form a temporary cell wall after all.....

http://bacteriality.com/2008/01/06/cellwall/

The finding were published in BioEssays, the same journal in which Dr. Marshall's article on Vitamin D will appear next month.

Best,

Amy

Hi all,

I'm posting for a reason other than an article on Bacteriality. At the moment I am also working on an article for another venue about cognitive impairment in people with CFS. I desperately need examples of patients with CFS who found that once they started to become ill, it was harder to understand things, or process instructions, or remembers things...or anything along those lines. I know I suffered from all of the above, but don't want to use myself as an example.

If you have CFS and could give me a few examples of how you think your cognitive function declined as you got sick I'd be extremely grateful. In the article I'm not going to portray you as dumb - I am going to emphasize that the cognitive issues are ONLY part of your disease. Furthermore, I don't even have to use your real name.

If you can help me out, please email me at amy.proal@gmail.com - even if it's only a few comments.

Thanks so much!

Amy

Ames, you might want to look into the several histamine and serotonin receptors that appear in Wang et al's paper in supplemental table 4. Several are probably transcribed by the VDR, possibly creating a host of these problems.

The same goes for dopamine receptors. VDR does not transcribe histamine 3 receptor, but 1, 2 and 4. If these three aren't there the H3 receptor might be overreacting due to too much histamine floating around and the H3 receptor downregulates dopamine levels as I understand it.

If I am not mistaken, hisatamine, serotonin and dopamine are neurotransmitters, so if the VDR doesn't transcribe essential receptors for these neurotransmitters...

Sincerely, Frans

Hi Frans,

Thanks for the tips. You know your stuff! Actually though, in the presentation I am not going to try to explain the mechanisms behind the cognitive dysfunction in people with CFS, just provide case histories and examples that illustrate that the illness truly does have a cognitive component.

I would like to thank all the people who with CFS who wrote me about their cognitive histories. The information is invaluable and has allowed me to move forward on the project. I'll tell you more about it as I finalize my abstract,

On a separate note, I am now looking for feedback on another issue. I am looking for any women who found they had PMS before starting the MP and now their PMS is getting better or has resolved. I spoke to a researcher yesterday who is really interested in this data and if I can give him some info I think he will take a serious look at the MP.

So once again, if your PMS has improved please email me at amy.proal@gmail.com

Thanks so much!

Amy

Ames, Trevor, you are both more than welcome.

Trevor, you might want to add:

- histamine N-methyltransferase (wang, table 4)

which is purported to be one of the two enzymes that disable histamine and has been tied to colonic adenoma, PMID  17562173

(the other enzyme is diamine oxidase, btw, did not find that one in wang's)

I am not certain how all these things work, I have read a lot on wikepedia about it, but for the real intracacies you'll have to dig in yourself I am afraid, or maybe someone on the prof. forum knows more?

Maybe another perspective could be to search wang's list with: syndrome

I have worked through a lot of the descriptions of the symdromes mentioned in wang's and something keeps popping up:  mental retardedness...  but to be fair, these syndromes had a lot more in common. I will try to make a list.

Have fun,

Sincerely, Frans

This is Amy, although my avatar shows Paul.  I'm working on his laptop today as mine broke down last night, tear..

Hi,

Most of you probably know Fred from West Virginia as he posts often on this site and is a loyal advocate for the MP.  I interviewed Freddie about his progress thus far on the MP and the piece is now up on Bacteriality:

http://bacteriality.com/2008/01/18/interview15/

Freddie's case is a great example of how effectively the MP can work for patients with heart conditions.  His interview will hopefully whet you appetites for a piece about bacteria and cardiovascular disease that I plan to put up in a few days.

Best,

Amy

PS I am still looking for anybody who's found that their symptoms of PMS have improved since starting the MP

Hello!

My piece about cardiovascular disease is finally up:

Healing from cardiovascular disease: bacteria,fat, cholesterol, and more.

http://bacteriality.com/2008/01/26/cad/

I wanted to write an article about heart disease because it affects a huge part of the population and those people who are using the MP to treat all kinds of cardiovascular issues as seeing great improvement. I hope to see more people with heart disease start the MP as it is clearly caused by L-form bacteria and can be reversed.

Best,

Amy

Thanks, Amy! A brother of mine is 3 weeks into recovery from a right coronary blockage...hence stent placed. He will find this article very informative and thought provoking. He is a bit familiar with the Marshall Protocol, as I sent him to the MP site when his son was diagnosed with Lyme disease.

Thanks for your hard work!

Hi Mary,

Thanks for writing.  I'm so glad the article may be able to help your brother understand how the MP can benefit patients with heart disease!

I also have one other concern.  I have been contacted by someone who told me that when they try to access Bacteriality using the browser Firefox the connections are extremely slow.  Has anyone else noticed this or any other Firefox related problems? 

Thanks,

Amy
