Mycoplasma Infection Link To Autoimmune Diseases

Interesting.

Do you think that this is only related to non-celiac gluten intolerance (like Lyme would be), or do you think this is a potential cause with possible treatment/cure for celiac?

I have mycoplasma AND lyme...and I do believe that this is correct. I think my mycoplasma makes me even sicker than the lyme does. I don't think people give mycoplasma enough credit! It's a doozy of an infection.

I'd like to see information on how you'd go about treating a mycoplasma infection. I've been on cordyceps for months now which is supposed to help, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of a specific herb or protocol that specifically addresses it.

There is a Dr. Brown who has been successful treating mycoplasma infection with an Abx called Minocin. A lot of doctors support this treatment. Google it.

I'm not entirely sure about that but it wouldn't hurt to get tested for it and treated if found. According to Dr. Nicholson, if you are infected with one or various species of mycoplasma you run the risk of auto-immune disorders among other things. The list of disorders encompassing this bug is very disturbing. List can be found here: http://www.rain-tree.com/myco.htm

Rachel, or anyone else: Do any of you know anything about mycoplasma infection diagnosed alone, i.e., not apparently a co-infection?

In the 90's (of course I will admit I was symptomatic of celiac then without knowing it) I became really ill with massive fevers and chills, cold clammy sweats and total exhaustion. After a visit to the emergency room at the urging of an R.N. I was treated by an infectious disease specialist and told it was a mycoplasma infection (don't know which type, didn't know then there were more than one). Besides massive doses of iboprofen and tylenol I was given a course of an unremembered antibiotic for four weeks only. It did seem to go away and I have never had a recurrence of those symptoms. Then two months ago my massage therapist gave me an article about the connection between mycoplasma and AIDS, Gulf War Syndrome, CFS, Crohn's and "various arthritides". The article said mycoplasmas can change the normal functioning of an invaded cell and that they can even cause RNA and DNA mututation of the host cells, linking them to cancer for this reason and that once inside a white blood cell, mycoplasmas can travel throughout the body and even cross the blood/brain barrier and into the central nervous system and spinal fluid. It also stated that due to its ability to either activate or suppress the immune system, it is now being considered one of the culprits of many autoimmune diseases. I found it very interesting.

I have not gone online to check the link, but it was printed from http://www.rain-tree.com/myco.htm

    Hi Ennis, You should be able to get a medical marijuana RX in Texas.  They passes a revision to their law that allows it for UC. https://klaq.com/new-texas-medical-marijuana-bill-passes/ ....

    I do not know where this falls in, but we have had issues with members getting sick from kissing, and I recall someone mentioning a shared drink straw in a gluten-free drink while their partner was eating a gluten meal.  Going by those two I would say just keep your own. >.> better yet just make a Gluten Free edibles. Try taking the weed and using a mortar and pedestal grind it into a fine powder, and mix it in with coconut oil and warm it up (not boiling just keep it on the lowest st
