Ever since I started the iodine-boron supplementation I have wondered why it works so well together. I always thought there was a missing link somewhere. A few threads ago I had this feeling I needed to dig, and I somehow I came closer to an understanding of why. No rocket sience of course, just my thoughts drifting;
The sentence that got me going was " Mycoplasmas are frequently found in the oral and genito-urinary tracts" I connected to the fact that kids and adults I have treated with this combination, usually has been well within a week; UTI or similar, burning, frequent urination, enuresis etc. – And I never understood why it could work so fast.
(I havent been near an UTI after iodine / boron. Earlier it was at least a yearly happening)
"The advances in gene research during this same time peroid has provided new evidence in the identification and pathogenesis of specific species of mycoplasmas which might have the ability to cause a dysregulation of the neuroendocrine system."
Mycoplasmas connection to the endocrine system, fibromyalgia etc. bring us straight into the fluoride issues as fluoride poisoning has symptoms similar to fibromyalgia; but why??
- Could it be that the deficiency of iodine and boron is widespread, and the excess fluoride make it possible for the mycoplasma to host our cells? -as it "paralyze" the thyroid, or at least make the body temp lower than optimal.
-as we know, boron and iodine are fluoride busters (in addition to a few other)
And then the war veterans, vaccinated all right;
” Patients with FMS or CFS often have multiple mycoplasmal infections and probably other chronic infections as well
Then you have all these connections to our health challenges today;
"Mycoplasma fermentans; Arthritis, Gulf War Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lupus, AIDS/HIV, autoimmune diseases, ALS, psoriasis and Scleroderma, Crohn's and IBS, cancer, endocrine disorders, Multiple Sclerosis, diabetes"
-this is short for what my family`s health problems is all about, in addition to the asthma and allergy; and there we go;
” "Mycoplasma pneumonia
Pneumonia, asthma, upper and lower respiratory diseases, heart diseases, leukemia, Steven-Johnson syndrome, polyarthritis or septic arthritis, CNS disorders and diseases, urinary tract infections, Crohn's and Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Guillain-Barr syndrome, polyradiculitis, encephalitis, and septic meningitis, autoimmune diseases."
"Formerly, boric acid was widely used as a preservative in foods, but is now banned for this purpose in most countries, and is also banned from public sale in Australia."
so that the mycoplasma (and others) from vaccines (antibiotics??) get an easy way in. In addition to limit our access to iodine, the fluoride pushing, a wicked plan..
-I always thought it was mycoplasma OR bacteria or virus etc. What I have learned today is that it is probably both or even all three; that the mycoplasma attatch to the virus / bacteria / fungus cell. Make them work well at the same time that an attack is difficult.
This would make sense; as the mycoplasma infections are hard to treat with medication. It would probably be hard to treat even with iodine / boron, as it already have taken control over the cells. A better option would to prevent this with these supplements, and of course avoid the vaccines.
"The four major combinations we have detected, so far, are mycoplasma attached to a virus, or to a fungus, or bacteria, or a spirochete."
Mycoplasma often presents as a chronic cough or lung infection that doesn’t respond to the usual remedies we have come to rely upon. It seems to create an acidic effect in the surrounding fluids, which encourages secondary acid-dependant illness to take place within the lung tissue, and creates a diminished uptake of oxygen.
”Since mycoplasma has a sterol deficiency within its protoplasm, to reproduce itself it needs to pull sterols out of the nearest cell wall of its host. Cell wall structures must contain cholesterol to maintain their flexibility and integrity, and are seriously damaged when a mycoplasmic invasion appropriates their protective cholesterol. Unless the wounded cell can repair itself, eventually the cell will open up and spill its contents into the surrounding tissues, leaving scraps of cellular structures behind.” http://www.balancingcenter.com/articles/mycoplasma_challenge.html
"Mycoplasmas are a specific and unique species of bacteria - the smallest free-living organism known on the planet. The primary differences between mycoplasmas and other bacteria is that bacteria have a solid cell-wall structure and they can grow in the simplest culture media. Mycoplasmas however, do not have a cell wall, and like a tiny jellyfish with a pliable membrane, can take on many different shapes which make them difficult to identify, even under a high powered electron microscope. Mycoplasmas can also be very hard to culture in the laboratory and are often missed as pathogenic causes of diseases for this reason.
The accepted name was chosen because Mycoplasmas were observed to have a fungi-like structure (Mycology is the study of fungi - hence "Myco") and it also had a flowing plasma-like structure without a cell wall - hence "plasma".
"Mycoplasmas, unlike viruses, can grow in tissue fluids (blood, joint, heart, chest and spinal fluids) and can grow inside any living tissue cell without killing the cells, as most normal bacteria and viruses will do. Mycoplasmas are frequently found in the oral and genito-urinary tracts of normal healthy people and are found to infect females four times more often than males, which just happens to be the same incidence rate in rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue and other related disorders.(7) Mycoplasmas are parasitic in nature and can attach to specific cells without killing the cells and thus their infection process and progress can go undetected. In some people the attachment of mycoplasmas to the host cell acts like a living thorn; a persistent foreign substance, causing the host's immune defense mechanism to wage war. This allergic type of inflammation often results in heated, swollen, and painful inflamed tissues, like those found in rheumatoid diseases, fibromyalgia and many other autoimmune disorders like lupus and MS, Crohn's and others. In such cases the immune system begins attacking itself and/or seemingly healthy cells. Some species of mycoplasmas also have the unique ability to completely evade the immune system. Once they attach to a host cell in the body, their unique plasma and protein coating can then mimic the cell wall of the host cell and the immune system cannot differentiate the mycoplasma from the body's own host cell."
My main links;
-mainly because of its importance for the cell membrane, and its connection to bones and teeth, same tissues as fluoride are attached to. + the parathyroid glands.. and the fact that ”myco” / fungus have no utilization for boron. And..
” Health Effects of Boron
Due to their content of boron, borax and boric acid have basically the same health effects, with good antiseptic, antifungal, and antiviral properties, but only mild antibacterial action. In plants as well as animals, boron is essential for the integrity and function of cell walls, and the way signals are transmitted across membranes.
Boron is distributed throughout the body with the highest concentration in the parathyroid glands, followed by bones and dental enamel. It is essential for healthy bone and joint function, regulating the absorption and metabolism of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus through its influence on the parathyroid glands. With this, boron is for the parathyroids what iodine is for the thyroid.
Boron deficiency causes the parathyroids to become overactive, releasing too much parathyroid hormone which raises the blood level of calcium by releasing calcium from bones and teeth. This then leads to osteoarthritis and other forms of arthritis, osteoporosis and tooth decay. With advancing age, high blood levels of calcium lead to calcification of soft tissues causing muscle contractions and stiffness; calcification of endocrine glands, especially the pineal gland and the ovaries; arteriosclerosis, kidney stones, and calcification of the kidneys ultimately leading to kidney failure. Boron deficiency combined with magnesium deficiency is especially damaging to the bones and teeth.
Boron affects the metabolism of steroid hormones, and especially of sex hormones. It increases low testosterone levels in men and oestrogen levels in menopausal women. It also has a role in converting vitamin D to its active form, thus increasing calcium uptake and deposition into bone and teeth rather than causing soft tissue to calcify. Also other beneficial effects have been reported such as improvement of heart problems, vision, psoriasis, balance, memory and cognition.
The German cancer researcher Dr Paul-Gerhard Seeger has shown that cancer commonly starts with the deterioration of cell membranes. As boron is essential for cell membranes and boron deficiency widespread, this may be an important cause for the initiation of tumour growth. Boron compounds have anti-tumour properties and are "potent anti-osteoporotic, anti-inflammatory, hypolipemic, anti-coagulant and anti-neoplastic agents" (1).
This overview shows the wide-ranging influence of boron on our health. In the following I want to describe some of these health effects in greater detail.
