My LLMD says my chronic mycoplasma pneumonia needs treatment.

My PCP says it is chronic, it shows I had the pneumonia and my body fought it off. That the high number is a good thing, it shows my immune system is working. And I don't need to treat it, that the number is a large number of antibodies.

Which is it? Do any of you know?

For me, Lyme treatment covered mycoplasma. I was told the high titers means an active infection (the same with Epstein-Barr).

Your LLMD knows far more about this than your PCP.

Healing Lyme Disease Coinfections: Complementary and Holistic Treatments for Bartonella and Mycoplasma - by Stephen Harrod Buhner - 2013


Prof. Garth Nicholson's research in Mycoplasma is to be commended. He does not treat. Still, he is THE top expert researcher in this field (although that does not mean others don't have some good insight, too). Here is his main site:

MYCOPLASMA


He also spoke a the 2011 ILADS Conference in Toronto (maybe others since as well). You can view the first ten minutes of that to get an idea of who he is - and purchase the DVD here:

Mycoplasma RIFE frequencies here:

Wonderful chart for many TBD - chart set up for Doug Coil (though frequencies are all the same regardless of the rife machine type)

Well, do you have symptoms? If you do, and your LLMD says to treat, then I would say to go for it.

I think I have chronic myco too. I feel better on Biaxin but every time I go off of it, it comes right back. So that tells me both that the Biaxin is doing something, and that I still am working on this.

This thread has been very helpful to me too!

My doc also says that everyone has microplasma. I don't think it's something you "get rid" of, it's just something that can be kept at bay like a virus when the immune system is working.

I would get your Myco P titers pulled again from the same lab (6 weeks or so/ more) apart from your recent Myco titers,

and see if the numbers are going down (and they should if the Myco is not really an issue).

positive Bartonella henselae Igenex, 2011.
low positive Fry biofilm test, 2012.

You can dramatically reduce mycoplasma pneumonia using Rife frequency treatments.

I have been treating this for some time now. It is one of the major players in my Crohns disease. In my situation, it is quite destructive if left to its own devices. I am fairly sure it's presence resulted in fistulas and other intestinal tract destruction.

Its effects vary a great deal depending where it is concentrated and your immune systems ability to keep it in check.

I don't know if I have symptoms. It seems the symptoms of it can be from the Lyme (though I muscle tested with Byron White formulas that my Lyme doesn't need treatment presently).

I don't know if I have symptoms or damage from Lyme and any coinfection.

I have poor sleep, fatigue, inappropriate sinus tachycardia and neurocardiogenic syncope (both well controlled with meds). I have ulcerative colitis or Crohn's, they cannot tell which at this time. Interstitial cystitis, muscle spasms, cognitive/memory problems, speech, etc.

But I was told when I was diagnosed by my LLMD that the damage was done, I could not be cured, somethings will get better.

The lab paper also, suggested repeat testing.

I was kind of hoping I didn't have to treat, because my LLMD is using Byron White formulas and there seems to be a hormonal thing with them.

I was using the detox and A-myco.

When I am not so tired I will go over all the info given. Thank you for your time and help.

BTW, I have come a looong way with treatment of Lyme using Bicillin LA for 3 yrs. I even exercise 3 days a week!

Follow you LLMD's advice and treat the mycoplasma. Are you sure it is mycoplasma pneumoniae?

I am under the impression that once exposed, we all have low levels of mycoplasma, so if your antibodies are high, it is likely due to some sort of active infection.

I am not treating my mycoplasma, I am treating lyme and babesia, and my titer did go down for mycoplasma. So, I am waiting to see if my immune system does the work for me.

The test showed chronic, it didn't come up as active. I don't understand it, but one is IgG, the IgM, something of that sort.

My Lyme treatment didn't lower it, unless it was much higher.
