Treating only symptoms may allow a disease to grow worse
I constantly see multiple pathogens interacting to debiliate a person with a weak immune system. There are thousands of different species and forms of parasites, viruses, mycoplasma, bacteria, and other organisms, each of which can produce a wide variety of symptoms. Many of these organisms cannot be effectively cultured in the lab and remain unidentified.
This provides an opportunity to systematically eliminate organisms with electronic frequencies while enhancing the immune system with the most effective supplement currently available, Transfer Factor. Detecting frequencies of organisms and eliminating them with these frequencies allows fine tuning of a targeted approach to deal with pleopmorphic forms of organisms, multiple strains of various organisms, and the wide variety of different pathogens whose interlocking behavior suppresses the immune system.
Without the frequency approach, the end result is that physicians group symptoms patterns into syndromes and label them with a disease state, without understanding or eliminating the underlying pathogens. Symptomatic treatement gives temporary relief while allowing the causative agents to replicate unimpeded.
This phenomena was described at the the 30th Anniversary of Lyme Disease Conference in Farmington, Connecticut, on 7 May 2005.
Professor Garth Nicolson is President and Chief Scientific Officer for the Institute of Molecular Medicine (http://www.immed.org). A main interest of his is researching the role of chronic infections in many different chronic diseases such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Gulf War Illness, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis and autoimmune diseases.
One of the first things that Prof. Nicolson mentioned was that a large subset of Chronic fatigue patients actually have Lyme Disease. Nicolson feels that Chronic Lyme involves viruses, bacteria and fungus. He says that this chronic state evolves over time. The Lyme infection can weaken the system and allow for these additional microbes to accumulate. It is also possible that it could work the other way around. A collection of other microbes, besides Lyme, could weaken the immune system, which could then allow Lyme to become chronic.
Nicolson discussed co-morbid states, explaining that most patients with chronic illness are infected with more than one pathogen. Each disease causes its own problems and this could be the reason why so many signs and symptoms keep shifting. Some of the culprits he mentioned are: mycoplasma, chlamydia, rickettsia, brucella, borrelia, coxiela, EBV, HHV6, CMV, enterovirus, Hepatitis C and fungus.
Each patient has their own unique overlap of symptoms. Because of this they end up going to different specialists who hand them a specific disease label to match their set of symptoms. There are usually no definite tests, causes or cures for all the subsets; only symptomatic treatments are offered. In the meantime, these infections continue to weaken the body.
