For the past 4 years I’ve been looking into Chronic Illness from an ‘insiders perspective’! Suffering from what has been stamped on my file Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) but a whole lot more than that would realistically be the diagnosis instead of this throw away term.
Over the past few months some interesting test results came back plus some interesting articles have been written in the diverse circles of medical research currently happening in the Chronic Illness circles.
Firstly I completed a Metametrix/Genova GI Effects stool sample showing a Streptomyces level in the 5th quintile, which is as close to stating HIGH as you can get. Also my infection markers and malabsorption markers were HIGH (not shown here):
Most interesting result, Bioscreenmedical.com. Showing a Streptococcus bacteria overgrowth.
The next test of interests was the nutripath.com.au Adrenal Saliva profile test:
So when you look at both tests together, it makes a lot of sense, as the bacterial infection via its Lipopolysaccharides blocks almost all critical functions in the body, as explained in this truly informative video:
Now for even more understanding of why my health has dropped to such a low point, Streptococcus is a Sulphate Reducing bacteria and also depletes the body of methyl stores, which go on to switch off even more of your bodies native abilities to detoxify, produce ATP, heal and oxygenate. This post explains very well the situation, http://www.aspirenaturalhealth.com/sulfur-and-sulphate-reducing-bacteria-another-piece-in-the-puzzle-post-149-by-dr-tim-gerstmar-3262012/
So with all of this information combined, it offers an excellent summary as to what is happening, the only problem is the treatment options are not very specific. Maybe Amoxcillin or Amplicillin or this or that. I’ve taken a tonne of antibiotics, antiparasitics and VSL3# but still my brain fog/pressure, low energy, low mood, food intolerance, back pain and stiffness continue.
One interesting thing out of all this, it was interesting to note that the FLOATERS I see continually infront of my eyes, look exactly the same as the Streptococcus bacteria. Guess I’ve got an inbuilt microscope and didn’t even know it.
