* This is not the time to try to put your energies in forcing the M.D.'s in educating themselves of these diseases or forcing Labs to develop better testing, or taking repeated and many tests or forcing your Government representatives to make things better. Now is the time to take charge of your own health by eradicating these infections before 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 of diluted pure Sri Lankan cinnamon verum for three weeks or sooner.. then you will know something in your body is being killed by the eradicator and it does not belong in your body.
.

Mycoplasmama 
is next to impossible to eradicate with the usual medicines, yet it is so flimsy that it can be permanently eradicaded in less then
16 days with Oregano, Cinnamon, Marjoram, or Mandarin.

Too easy? Try it. 
2 diluted pure drops a day until you can handle taking for 16 consecutive days.






 

Mycoplasmosis - Mycoplasma

M. fermentans, M. genitalium, M. hominis, M. penetrans, 
Mycoplasma pneumoniae, M. pulmonis, Mycoplasma gallisepticum, M. hyopneumoniae, M. mobile, M. mycoides, Mesoplasma florum, Ureaplasma urealyticum/parvum, Phytoplasma asteris, M. pirum, M. salivarium.

Mycoplasma may be the only infection in a body or can be a  co-infection of Lyme.  There are various species of mycoplasmas. Approximately 60% of Lyme infected people also have mycoplasmal infections. The  most common are Mycoplasma fermentans, Mycoplasma hominis, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, M. genitalium, M. penetrans,and some other species. In some cases multiple mycoplasmal infections are present in Lyme Disease, thereby complicating the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme Disease because the symptoms are similar. 

Mycoplasma infections can independently cause many of the signs and symptoms found in Lyme Disease, and they may exacerbate the clinical signs and symptoms and also complicate treatment of the Mycoplasma condition. Some people cycle in with Borrelia and various mycoplasmas in their blood cells.

There are 100 recognized species of the genus Mycoplasma.

The overall of Mycoplasmosis
Bacteria: Mycoplasma is the smallest of bacteria's and has the ability to enter any cell and alter itself, changing its cellular makeup with every cell division.  It invades all systems of the human body, including the nerves. It lacks a cell wall and thereby are unaffected by many common antibiotics and penicillin.

Neuro:Stuttering or stammering,Difficulty finding words, Poor balance or unsteadiness, Dizziness, Deteriorated penmanship,Lightheadedness

Diagnosis:
Since these organisms can be present without causing disease Mycoplasma detection is difficult, as well,  it is found in various tissues (intracellular)and rarely is it found free in the blood.  Often doctors make the diagnosis by eliminating other causes. Since Mycoplasma infection signs are highly variable it is not uncommon for a diagnosis to be entirely missed.
Test:
It is recommended that mycoplasmal infections be tested for in every case of Lyme Disease using the most sensitive PCR procedures to detect the mycoplasma DNA in white blood cells. 
Mycoplasma species are difficult to test for, and this usually requires a PCR test on blood leukocytes (white blood cells).  Only a few commercial labs, such as VIP Labs of Reno, know how to test for Mycoplasma infections, and even labs that are very good at Lyme testing, such as Igenex Labs, can’t do the Mycoplasma testing. The following group may be able to direct you to good mycoplasma testing, as few Labs have proven able to do this type of testing. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MycoplasmaRegistry/
To eradicate this bacteria:
For eradicating any and all Mycoplasma's it can be done by making the body's environment where these wall lacking bacteria's can no longer sustain life in 14 days. More info.
Medical:Antibiotics such as Doxycycline, Azithromycin, Clarithromycin, Ciprofloxacin, Minocycline, and Tetracycline are usually used to treat this infection, typically requiring a 6 month course of treatment with no break followed by several 6 week on, 2 weeks off antibiotic cycles.   Long-term therapy is needed in cases of chronic illness (like Lyme disease). A long course of antibiotics and a change of antibiotics along the way, (more then a year). 
Other Mycoplasma eradicators: RIFE frequencies,energy medicines, natural plant antibiotics like olive leaf extract, Neem, Cinnamon leafn and uva ursi are also used. In this case additions of supplements are usually required to rebuild and support the immune system.
With treatment the last symptoms to disappear are those of the central and peripheral nervous systems pain; skin sensitivity, burning and other nerve pain. 

Recovery:
Many people recover from Mycoplasma infections and are fine for years when treated with antibiotics. They may later have an incident involving severe trauma or other significant life stressor and symptoms fully reappear within weeks to months. Not so with Rife frequencies or Cinnamon verum that have eradicated the Mycoplasma completely.
Peripheral neuropathy requires time for full recovery.

Difficulties: Medical: Reports have emerged, especially in Asia, showing that Mycoplasma pneumoniae may be developing resistance to macrolides such as Azithromycin and Clarithromycin.
 

Lyme & CoInfections Symptoms Comparison
Mycoplasma fermentans 
M. fermentans is the most common co-infection with Borrelia burgdorferi in Lyme Disease.
Bacteria:
Mycoplasma is the smallest of bacteria's and has the ability to enter any cell and alter itself, changing its cellular makeup with every cell division. Lacks cell wall. It can invade all systems of the human body.
Transmission:
Found in ticks with or without Borrelia. Those infected  may not have symptoms or produce numerous symptoms that are similar to Lyme disease.
Incubation:?
Found: Worldwide
Rash: none
Symptoms onset:
For those who do have symptoms Mycoplasma fermentans produces numerous symptoms very similar to Lyme disease and M.fermentans will manifest different symptoms for each individual person. Like Lyme, it is also multi-systemic, infecting any system in the body. From no symptoms to flu-like aches and pains to almost debilitating cramps and spasms.
Body Temperature:
Night sweats
Gastrointestinal:
Abdominal bloating, nausea, diarrhea.
Eyes:
Light sensitive, visual disturbances, floaters in the eyes, eye pain.
Heart - organs:

Sleep:
sleep disturbances, Chronic fatigue
Urinary:
Problems with urination

Diagnosis:
Mycoplasma detection is difficult because it is found in various tissues and only rarely found in the blood. Since these organisms can be present without causing disease, diagnosis is challenging.
Test:
Usually require a PCR test on blood leukocytes (white blood cells). The following group may be able to direct you to good mycoplasma testing, as few Labs have proven able to do this type of testing. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MycoplasmaRegistry/
To eradicate this bacteria:
A long course of antibiotics and a change of antibiotics along the way, (more then a year). 
Other Mycoplasma eradicators: RIFE frequencies,  herbs, energy medicines, other.etc. along with building up the immune system. 

The Mycoplasma bacteria must be eradicated. Treating symptoms does not prevent the Mycoplasma's from multiplying or manifesting its many distressing symptoms. 
 

Mycoplasma pneumoniae ( Type strain: ATCC 15531, NCTC 10119 )In North America, M. pneumoniae is the most common Mycoplasma seen in various diseases. 

Bacteria: 
M pneumoniae, is a pleomorphic organism that, unlike bacteria, lacks a cell wall, and unlike viruses, does not need a host cell for replication. Likes to live on the surface cells (mucosa) of the respiratory tract and can cause inflammation of most structures there.
Transmission:
Incubation: 9- to 12-day incubation period
Found: worldwide
Rash: When the organism infects the skin, it creates non-specific rashes
Symptoms: Typically causes mild, or even no, symptoms. Even if symptoms are mild, its tendency is to cause lingering after-effects, particularly joint and muscle pain, with full recovery potentially taking months.
Symptoms onset:
Cough, sore throat,earache,headache,fever,Chills, and malaise. The frequency and severity of cough may increase over next few days after onset and may become debilitating.
Ears:inflammation of the eardrum
Eyes:
Sometimes double vision and decreased vision, eye infection.
Head, neck, face:
Scratchy sore throat, laryngitis, temporary paralysis, mainly in the face. Headache. Persistent, slowly worsening dry cough; absence of cough makes the diagnosis of M pneumoniae unlikely
Immune-endocrine:
Malaise
Locomotor:
Muscle and joint aches then lasting beyond infection
Neuro:
Confusion, acute psychosis secondary to encephalitis, inflammation of the brain (encephalitis), aseptic meningitis, confusion, acute psychosis secondary to encephalitis, double vision and decreased vision, and temporary paralysis, mainly in the face.
Respiratory:
Pneumonia/pneumonitis, walking pneumonia, regular pneumonia, bronchitis,sore chest and tracheal tenderness (result of the protracted cough). Flulike symptoms such as fever, nonproductive cough, generalized aches and pains, and nasal congestion. Typical pneumonia usually involves a productive cough and chest pain close to the site of the pneumonia.)Original symptoms persist, with a worsening and relatively nonproductive cough.

Diagnoses: 
Medical- Chest x-ray,Complete blood count,Blood tests for antibodies to mycoplasma, Blood cultures, Bronchoscopy,CT scan of the chest, Sputum culture to check for mycoplasma bacteria. Open lung biopsy (only done in very serious illnesses when the diagnosis cannot be made from other sources) 
To eradicate this bacteria:
Antibiotics such as Doxycycline, Azithromycin, Clarithromycin, Ciiprofloxacin, and Tetracycline  typically requiring two to three weeks treatment, and  long-term therapy may be needed in cases of chronic illness.
Nathropatic remedies such as olive leaf extract, uva ursi  and Neem have also been used and  other.. RIFE along with natural supplements, minerals, etc. to rebuild the immune system.

Mycoplasmal pneumonia is most common in people younger then forty years of age.
* C. pneumoniae has been reported as a possible cause of atherosclerosis and central nervous system disorders.

Symptoms Long term or complications:
Skin problems, such as rashes.Eyes:optic nerve inflammation. Cardiac: Arrhythmia's, conduction defects,congestive failure, Pericarditis, Myocarditis, Endocarditis.GI symptoms. Facial paralysis, as in Bell's Palsy, Neurological: Aseptic meningitis Encephalitis, Guillain-Barré syndrome,Renaud phenomenon, Peripheral neuropathies and radiculopathies, Brainstem dysfunction,Dysfunction of the pyramidal or extrapyramidal tract,Cerebellar dysfunction, Cerebral infarction, Musculoskeletal manifestations: Polyarthralgias,Acute arthritis (monoarticular or migratory), Digital necrosis, Hematologic manifestations: Immune hemolytic anemia, Pancytopenia, Splenic infarct, Hemophilialike illness

Mycoplasma Hominis
In Europe, M. hominis is the most prevalent mycoplasma.
Incubation: Unknown
Transmission:
Principally transmitted by sexual contact and cervical and vaginal contact during birth

M. hominis is also suspected to be the cause of

  • pelvic inflammatory disease
  • ectopic pregnancy
  • postpartum fever
  • endometritis inflammation of uterus
  • neonatal infections
    • conjunctivis
    • respiratory distress
    • meningitis
    • abscesses, and congenital 
    • pneumonia, which occurs a few hours after birth.
  • pharyngitis
  • septicaemia
  • lung infections
  • central nervous system infections
  • other respiratory tract infections
  • joint infection, and wound infections
Mycoplasma hominis is a living organism common in almost all humans. It resides in the urinary and genital tracts.
A few weeks after contracting Mycoplasma hominis infections it causes in men and women:
  • Painful urination

  • Strange unusual discharges, often foul smelling.
Mycoplasma genitalium, spermatophilum, M. penetrans, and Ureaplasma species and other.
    Each species cause different symptoms and can vary widely. Some infect specific parts or systems of the body. Here are some examples of what these can cause.
     
  • Kidney infection 
  • Surgical wound infections 
  • Infectious arthritis/septic arthritis 
  • Disorders of the eye and ear 
  • Periodontal disease and gingivitis 
  • Crohn’s Disease and Irritable Bowel Syndrom

Chlamydial infections
can cause disease in many organ systems, including the genitourinary tract. Chlamydiae are small gram-negative obligate intracellular microorganisms that preferentially infect squamocolumnar epithelial cells. They include the genera Chlamydia (of which the type species is Chlamydia trachomatis(sexually transmited) and Chlamydophila (eg, Chlamydophila pneumoniae(respiratory droplets) and Chlamydophila psittaci(spread by bird droppings and aerosols.)

    Antibiotics and more. Inappropriate antibiotic treatment may lead to chronic Chlamydia Pneumoniae

    C pneumoniae produces similar clinical symptoms to mycoplasma pneumoniae and respiratory viruses. There are reports linking C pneumoniae to myocardial and endocardial disease.
    (Mentioned here to differentiate with Chlamydia Pneumoniae)

    Chlamydia  trachomatis infection (sexually transmitted disease) affects the cervix, urethra, salpinges, uterus, nasopharynx, and epididymis...a leading cause of infertility in women.
    Chlamydia  trachomatis infection causes other diseases as well, including conjunctivitis, pneumonia or pneumonitis, afebrile pneumonia syndrome (in infants born vaginally to infected mothers), Fitz-Hugh-Curtis syndrome, and trachoma (the world’s leading cause of acquired blindness).
    To eradicate: Four weeks.
