* Note to parent or the infected one:
This is not the time to put your energies into forcing the M.D.'s to educate themselves of these diseases so they can treat you, nor to force Labs into developing better testing, or taking repeated and many tests or forcing your Government  reprisentatives to make things better. Now is the time to take charge of your own health by eradicating these infections before more damage is done within your body.

If you experience a Herxheimer reaction from eradicators of bacteria's, viruses, protozoa's, borrilia's, such as with 2 drops Sri Lankan cinnamon verum for two weeks.. then you will know something in your body is being killed by the eradicator and it does not belong in your body.


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Bartonellosis - Bartonella 
zoonotic infections 
B. alsatica, B. bacilliformis (Oroya fever), B. elizabethae, B. grahamii, B.Henselae,  B. melophagi, B.quintana, B. schoenbuchensis, B. tamia, B. taylorii, B. vinsonii, B. vinsonii subsp. arupensis, B. washoensis and more recently B. rocha-limaea , B. koehlerae
    Bartonella Bacteria:
    A small, Gram-negative aerobic bacilli having the ability to infect the red blood cells, endothelial cells that line the inside surfaces of body cavities, blood vessels, and lymph vessels, making up the endothelium vascular system.  It can also reside in the tissues and bone marrow and the immune system cells (macrophages). The immune system is unable to detect the bacteria that are within the cells.
    Transmissions:
    Most commonly passed to humans by fleas, body lice, and ticks, also moles,etc. 
    Incubations:
    Average 3 days to 4 weeks after exposure symptoms begin to occur.
    Found:
    World wide 
    Rash:
    Stretch mark rash, streaks. 
    Symptoms onset:
    Flu like
    Test:
    There are blood tests, though often inaccurate.  Testing can be done at Labcorp, Clongen and IgeneX. Muscle testing can be done if a person suspects the infection so they can start eradicating the bacteria with alternatives immediately.
    Eradication of this bacteria:
    Energy Medicines, Homeopathics, Herbs, RIFE, or other eradicating agents it with home remedy. Antibiotics - Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, gentamicin,rifampin ciprofloxacin,or azithromyacin.

    Bartonella henselae: (Tick borne bartonella henslae is not the same as “cat scratch disease,” which typically is far less serious and has different symptoms.)
    Bacteria: From genus Rochalimeae- B. henselae
    Transmission:  Ticks for the serious form of bartonella H. Cat flea (Ctenocephalides felis)
    Incubation: 3 to 10 days
    Found: Worldwide
    Rash: Most common- elongated with appearance of stretch marks. Put "Bartonella rash pictures" in search engine
    Symptoms onset: Flu like: Fatigue,  feverishness, and swollen lymph nodes. Most of the cases show spontaneous recovery without therapy.
    Some  develop:
    • Infections of the brain (encephalopathy).  Neuroretinitis, retinitis, retinal infiltrates, arterial and vein occlusions.Valve infection (endocarditis). 
    In the immunocompromised it causes a number of other syndromes- 
    • Bacillary peliosis hepatis (occurs primarily in the liver), relapsing bacteremia with fever, and endocarditis, bacillary angiomatosis (organisms induce new blood vessel formation (i.e., angiogenesis). These proliferating blood vessels form benign tumor masses.
    Diagnoses: Blood test and clinical
    Few MD's are familiar with tick borne Bartonella. Tick borne bartonella henslae is not the same as “cat scratch disease,” which typically is far less serious and has different symptoms.
    Treatment: Energy Medicines, Homeopathics, Antibiotics, Herbs, RIFE, or permanently eradicate it with ancient home remedy.

    When the disease remains untreated it becomes chronic and a mirad of symptoms are manifested from the B. henselae. Here are some symptoms: untreated-Chronic Bartonella


    B. quintana(Trench Fever)
    also called Rickettsia quintana, Rickettsia weigli, Rochalimaea quintana,Bartonella quintana,five-day fever, quintan fever, Wolhinie fever, and "urban trench fever.

    Bacteria: from genus Rochalimeae- B.Quintana Gram  Negative-Bacillus 
    Transmission: louse feces and the body lice (Pediculus humanus)
    Incubation: 5 to 30 days
    Found: World wide
    Rash: A maculopapular rash may or may not appear on the trunk that is fleeting.
    Symptoms onset:
    • Sudden with high fever, chills,severe headache, back pain. The symptoms may reappear at five day intervals and thus the disease is also called five day fever. The disease may last weeks to months.Bartonella quintana causes a prolonged febrile illness. 
    Later:
    • Relapsing fevers, muscle aches, pain behind the eyes, severe headache, joint pain, rash, liver and spleen enlargement, and pain in the shins. 
    Recovery takes a month or more. Relapses are common. It can cause bloodstream infection (bacteremia) associated with nonspecific symptoms or no symptoms.
    • B.Quintana also has been found responsible for a disease called bacillary angiomatosis in people infected with HIV or the immunocompromised. In this illness, organisms induce new blood vessel formation (i.e., angiogenesis). These proliferating blood vessels form benign tumor masses.  Infection of the heart and great vessels (endocarditis) with blood stream infection and heart valve infection(bacteremia). 
    Diagnoses: Blood
    Eradication of this bacteria: Mild cases resolve without treatment.More severe infections require treatment.
    Energy Medicines, Homeopathics, Antibiotics, Herbs, RIFE, or other eradicating agents.

      Some symptoms tend to come and go as the bacteria cycles, the inflammation in the brain increases, during full moons, sleep deprived, etc.

      *** The bacteria blocks the normal immune response by suppressing the NF-kB apoptosis pathway.Disease progression will be accelerated if the host is subsequently infected by an immune suppressing virus such as Epstein Barr or XMRV and likewise, as the host's infectious load increases the immune system will be more prone to infection due to the weakening response.

    The Bartonella bacteria must be eradicated. Treating only the symptoms does not prevent the Bartonella's from multiplying and creating much damage. Left to linger the infection only becomes more complicated.

    Bartonella can be eradicated completely when finally able to take the drops of sri Lankan Cinnamun Verum for 21 consecutive days as long as there are no interferences present.
