Nicolaus Copernicus

Columbia University sponsors a very well composed conference on Lyme disease annually, and this year it is between the coasts in St Paul. The speakers are very respected members of the scientific community — Robert Moir PhD, Brian Fallon, MD, and many others. Dr Moir began the conference with very compelling evidence that the epidemic of Alzheimer’s disease very likely is from smoldering infections in our brains — not necessarily purely borrelia (Lyme), any number of different pathogens that find their way there thru a leaky gut or mouth in addition to tick borne avenues. The astonishing thing about this conference is not so much the jaw-dropping evidence that much of this infection is both ignored and a challenge to treat, but….

…the conspicuous absence of any members of the Twin Cities infectious disease, neurology, or general medical communities.  The usual Lyme specialist MDs, nurses, and naturopaths are here, of course, but where are the “specialist consultants” from Mayo, the University of Minnesota, Hennepin County, etc?   I am looking for any Mayo or Allina nametags, but none so far.

Dr Moir presented very compelling evidence that the so-called “beta-amyloid” protein that is pretty much the sine qua non of the post mortem Alzheimer’s brain likely is simply the brain’s immune response to infection.  Now this is not always necessarily borrelia but rather implies that many different viruses, bacteria, and even fungal elements can stimulate this defense mechanism that eventually can become the major pathology — even after the infection has tacitly disappeared.  The major point is this:  if early dementia is suspected, these patients most definitely must not be relegated to the usual, passive observation prison of “Dad has early Alzheimer’s”.  An aggressive approach to look for sources of infection, efforts to remediate any suspected infectious or inflammatory causes, and to offer the hope of reducing or eliminating progression or even reversing the process must be engaged.  To do otherwise is simply no longer the “standard of care”

Perhaps Copernicus had some of these problems at one time in influencing his community of non believers.

  1. Reading your blog is pure pleasure for me,
    it deserves to go viral, you need some initial
    traffic only. If you want to know how to get it search
    for: blackhatworren’s strategies
