So, more news, more bacteria, this time going by the name Mycoplasma Pneumoniae! That sort of sounds like I am introducing a new friend.. but no, this is by no means my ‘good friend’! This is yet another co-infection which I have just tested positive for.
Mycoplasma is an often un-diagnosed bacterial infection. It’s often over looked in Chronic Lyme Disease as the symptoms are not only highly variable but they also present in a similar way to other co-infection symptoms so it’s easy for it to be missed. This particular bacteria, lacks a cell wall which can makes it non-responsive to many types of antibiotics. The species of mycoplasma are intracellular and must enter a cell in order to survive within a host; in this case a human! Once they are successfully inside a cell, it then confuses the immune system and it struggles to recognise this pathogen.
Due to the fact that I do not detox well, my Doctor is cautious not to overload the body with too many antibiotics, and have opted to start treatment for this with a herbal tincture called A-Myco. This is another Byron White Formula and it will work in conjunction with other herbals and antibiotics I am taking to hopefully eradicate the infection.
