The Role of Vitamin D Deficiency and Persistent Infection in Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases
https://chronicillnessrecovery.org/inde ... &Itemid=42
The incidence of autoimmune and inflammatory illnesses is increasing dramatically. Vitamin D deficiency and persistent infection have been linked to inflammatory disease processes. A better understanding of vitamin D metabolism, bacteria-induced inflammation and antibiotic protocols may enable early recognition of disease onset and improve patient outcomes.

Lyme disease-A Systems Medicine Approach
Dr. Berndtson will tackle the controversy regarding Lyme disease by reviewing the evidence for immune evasion and persistent infection by the Lyme spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi)

De CIR en de ARF (Autoimmunity Research Foundation: de organisatie van Prof. Trevor Marhall en stafmedewerker Marshall Protocol) zijn beide organisaties die met tal van artsen o.a (bacterioloog Prof dr. Lida Mattman en dr. Alan R. Cantwell: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=8155), Phd dan wel moleculaire wetenschappers samenwerken die zich bezig houden met de rol van (intracellulaire) bacteriën (o.a. de Borrellia burgdorferi) en de ontregeling van het Vit.D metabolisme. Kenmerk patiënten bacterieel belast: (te)laag 25D met (te) hoog 1,25D.
Bacterial Etiology Theory of Chronic Inflammation

Diagnosing probable intracellular infection
Detection of inflammation putatively caused by these intracellular bacteria is accomplished with two basic blood tests called the D metabolites: specifically 25-D and 1,25-D.
A NEW TREATMENT FOR CHRONIC DISEASE
https://chronicillnessrecovery.org/imag ... uction.pdf
What causes chronic disease?
Inflammation Therapy is based on the theory that numerous diseases involving immune system dysfunction, such as sarcoidosis, Lyme, chronic fatigue syndrome (ME), fibromyalgia, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and many others, are caused by cell wall deficient (CWD) bacteria of various species, also known as L-forms. For over a century the presence of these L-forms has been documented, and many researchers have speculated that they could be the cause of chronic disease
How is diagnosis made?
Detection of inflammation is accomplished with two basic blood tests, the D-metabolites (vitamin D): 1,25-D and 25-D. Symptoms and other test results may also be indications.
What lifestyle changes are needed for Inflammation Therapy?
An essential part of Inflammation Therapy is avoidance of foods and supplements containing vitamin D, to maintain 25-D at a level that won’t inhibit immune system function. Many patients, to varying degrees, need to avoid exposure to sunlight and bright lights, to maintain tolerable symptoms.
What drugs are used?
The key part of the therapy is the regular use of the Angiotensin Receptor Blocker olmesartan medoxomil (‘Benicar’/’Olmetec’). Then carefully selected low-dose antibiotics are added gradually in a pulsed schedule.
