*** Infectious Causes of ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia, Dr. Kent Holtorf — www.prohealth.com/library/showarticle.cfm?libid=16277
"Numerous studies have demonstrated a high incidence of chronic infections in chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. These include viral infections of Epstein-barr (EBV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), human herpes virus-6, (HHV-6), and bacterial infections such as mycoplasma, Chlamydia pneumoniae (CP) and Borrelia burgdorferi (Lyme disease). There is controversy regarding the presence of active infection in these conditions because physicians, including infectious disease specialists, do not understand that the standard way to diagnose acute infections - an elevation of IgG and IgM antibodies - is not a sensitive means of detecting chronic infections in these patients (1-21). With an acute [new] infection, the body will start producing IgM antibodies against that infection and then start producing IgG antibodies after a few weeks so there is an elevation of both IgG and IgM antibodies. Chronic reactivating infections, such as those mentioned above, do not stimulate IgM antibodies, as they are not new infections but rather intracellular reactivating infections." Dr. Kent Holtorf
Chlamydia pneumoniae (TWAR) — h-pylori-symptoms.com/wp-content/uploads/Truth_HP_Treatments.pdf [See: cmr.asm.org/content/8/4/451.full.pdf]
"Chlamydia pneumoniae (TWAR) is a recently recognized third species of the genus Chlamydia that causes acute respiratory disease, including pneumonia, bronchitis, sinusitis, and pharyngitis. ...
Chlamydiae are obligate intracellular parasites that are classified as bacteria because of the composition of their cell wall and their growth by binary division. ...
For C. trachomatis, the Sarkosyl-soluble HSP60 (GroEL) has been associated with a delayed-type hypersensitivity response in chronic infections. ...
Paradoxically, depletion of lysine from 100 to 90% and of methionine from 90 to 70% was shown to enhance the growth of C. pneumoniae."

Niacin and Niacinamide: The main action of B3 Niacinamide is it kills the microbials & yeast overgrowth in the gut, thus healing the intestinal lining. — www.lymeinchronicillness.com/benefits-of-b3-niacinamide/ and video — tv.naturalnews.com/v.asp?v=5688f97a352ee032e5cc1fc0c898d123
"A study in the August edition of the Journal of Clinical Investigation suggests that a form of vitamin B3, niacinamide, increased by 1000 times the ability of immune cells to kill MRSA. Niacin, or nicotinic acid, does not have this effect. Niacinamide in doses greater than 3 grams per day has the potential for serious liver disease, but does not have the flushing effect or cholesterol lowering effects of niacin. Neither a normal diet nor multivitamin pills have anywhere near the dosage needed for this effect. ... Niacinamide works by turning on antimicrobial genes that increase the ability of immune cells to kill bacteria." [See: DoctorSaputo.com]

*** Adults take 1,000- 2,000 mg. (1/2 for children) of niacinamide (B3) divided into 2 or 3 doses, and 500- 1,000 mg. of niacin (the flushing type- as mild flushing dilates the capillaries and brings oxygen to all of the cells) in divided doses after lunch and dinner. — lymeinchronicillness.com/natural-lyme-protocol-treatment/

SILVER — Colloidal Silver — "We seem to have come full cycle. The infections that are cutting a wide swath through our hospitals today are completely resistant to the antibiotics we have come to blindly rely on. As a result, physicians are once again helpless. . . before the advent of antibiotics we had no therapeutic options. Today, many experts believe we've just about exhausted them." Plague Makers by Jeffrey A. Fisher, p 11;
"Researchers have said that Colloidal Silver may well be your first line of defense against the many infectious germs running rampant in our generation, such as E. coli communis, B. tuberculosis, Staphylococcus pyogenes, and various Streptococci, etc. They said that laboratory experiments have shown that essentially all microbes have been killed in six minutes or less using colloidal silver."

"Other potential sources of early exposure in fetuses or infants include maternal amalgams, fish consumption, eardrops, and nasal drops. But vaccines may be more problematic than all of these. They present a significant source of mercury exposure in Rho-gam, influenza vaccines during pregnancy, and childhood immunizations. It has been found that the maximum exposure from these vaccines in the first six months of life is 187.5 micrograms [mcg] of mercury - far exceeding limits set by the World Health Organization (WHO) and The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). According to the EPA, the safe daily level of mercury exposure for a five kilogram, two-month-old infant is 0.5 micrograms or 0.1 micrograms per kg. But these limits are set for methyl mercury primarily from fish, not for ethyl mercury from vaccines. The typical two-month vaccination schedule for a baby includes DTP, Hib, and HepB. Combined, these vaccines contain 62.5 micrograms of mercury. That's a whopping 125 times the EPA limits for a single day exposure! Like lead, there may be NO safe level - and children are more susceptible to toxic effects than adults."
"Stephanie Cave, M.D., is on the clinical faculty of Louisiana State University Medical School, and since 1996 has treated over 2,300 children with autistic spectrum disorder. Her recent book, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's Vaccinations, outlines the data and debate in this highly charged field. Dr. Cave reported on the increased incidence of autism in the last 30 years - up from one out of 10,000 children to one out of 150 children and one of just 30 males in the United States. The major toxicity from mercury that contributes to this epidemic, she said, is its ability to severely inhibit enzyme function and structural integrity." Mark Hyman, MD
