i just wrote my first TIMS post re: identical twin studies. i dont have the energy to post again right now, but i do have the desire to share and contribute. it relates to this topic as well, so cut and paste i will:
i understand that opportunistic infections including viruses, bacteria and protozoa can attach to the DNA and change it. i've heard it described as, "we become them." i know so many people who improved on antibiotics and antimicrobials and concurrently decreasing heavy metals.
i am personally convinced that i have venous stenosis. this filled in the missing piece for me. i have been clearing "environmental" toxins, including heavy metals.
when i went on abx i couldn't detox the dead bodies fast enough. often people with chronic illness have a difficult time detoxing. i no longer sweat. what happened next convinced me of the etiology of my MS. the same neuro symptoms appeared until i could slowly! clear them. i had to stop the abx. now i am on herbal antimicrobials, which are gentler.
i was not surprised when some of Dr Z's patients restenosed. i was sad, though. When i started LDN, it worked for 8 months. then something overwhelmed it. i suspect it could be the same thing that causes the restenosis. Aliyah
