sorry I used the wrong term shutting down.
The bacteria such as CPn are able to adapt into their DNA sections with host cell DNA to enable them to alter their identity so they are seen as self or non threatening and they are able to alter the DNA of the host cells such as cytokine and macrophage cells once they have established entering the cells.
So they have made themselves immune to the immune detection as well as making the immune cells dysfunctional to a degree.
The immune cells are still very active and when there is natural CPn die off or induced die off from diet such as herbs or from some other form, like stress or antibiotics, that causes the endo toxins as the CPn cells die and are recycled by the immune cells normal clean up process around the body, the immune system becomes activated but not against CPn directly, rather against the toxins and then the cytokine over response and over production of cytokines gives the symptomatic issues seen in many 'auto-immune' type diseases.
The vascular involvement of bacterial infections in endothelial cells is common as the endothelial cells have easy access and prime food supply (ATP). By weakening the endothelial cells and also creating infections they can establish biofilms and collect other bacteria for their protection and dispersion.
There are other knowns with some bacteria like CPn such as they are not oxygen dependant or iron dependant. They use magnesium in their cycle and when we are often low on magnesium it can be a clue and it adds to the lack of magnesium in our diets and the symptoms causes which are hand in glove with 'MS' and 'autoimmune' type symptoms. The imbalances created in the CPn use of some other minerals and nutrients by both using up ATP and creating by products in host cells, gives the immune system and Western Medicine false clues and enables a stealth bacteria to mildly continue a 'low grade infection' for decades.
The fluctuations in symptoms and disease flairs and progression induced by stealth bacterial infections are related to the changes in host environment due to things such as diet, exercise, stresses and general health which are compounded because of the low level of general health and responses from the stressed immune system and over producing cytokine cell volume. The immune system is essentially in full gear all the type and not finding the target.
** Regarding CCSVI it is common to find CPn and CCSVI. Which comes first or second is indistinguishable. The two are symbiotic in a way and the opportunistic co-infections are clouding the picture as well. Diseases such as Lyme, mycoplasma's and Borrelia or any of the Stealth Bacteria are also implicated in the symptom group of causes that create the outcome of a dx 'MS' at a stage in the development of symptoms and that may be related more because of the biofilm status rather than being a factor in CCSVI directly. The other co-factors in 'MS' such as injury and spinal alignment are also main factors in MS occurring and progressing through CCSVI breaches of the BBB. There are probably 3 main 'causes' required to develop a dx of MS and other multiples required for dx's such as Fibro, Alzhiemer's and Parkinson's and so on. **
CPn is commonly found in blood vessel plaques in atherosclerosis and some believe it is the primary cause for that disease. It is another place that the bacterial stealth methods make it very difficult to determine the cause or effect processing of the infection leading to Heart diseases and Strokes in that group of outcomes.
These findings have just begun crossing the Medical Specialists awareness because patients are doing lots of Internet searching and communication in the same way that CCSVI awareness has become available because of the Internet and Social Groups.
I think that because Neuro's are 'lazy' when they assess a patient and are not skilled in the way a Psyhio's or Chiro's such as Dr Flanagan are, the dx of neuro-degenerative diseases and 'auto-immune diseases have become purely a 'money spinner' by stealth of the Drug Manufacturers and their lobby groups. imo
First day of spring down here today, or MS treatment by UV,
