I can't find a t-shirt big enough to print the following statement by Gorol Suel, Professor of Microbiology in Amy's blog..
" the greatest hope for immunostimulation in ANY disease hinges on the ability of treatment to be initiated early, or in a preventative fashion. Medicine must learn to support the immune system BEFORE pathogens push the microbiome far out of balance. “Bringing back” the immune system after years of neglect inevitably leads to severe symptoms and complications. For example, the severity of CSS in cancer is directly related to the tumor burden of the patients (patients with fewer, smaller tumors experience less CSS). In contrast, immunopathology in early-stage disease can be easy to treat and tolerate ".
