MYCOPLASMAS - INFORMATIONAL LINKS SET

Intended as an information links set. If there are questions / discussion feel free to start your own thread so your concerns can be more fully addressed.

I hope all will feel welcome to add to this for a fuller collection of articles / books - or any specifically notable points.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mycoplasma

Mycoplasma is a genus of bacteria that lack a cell wall around their cell membrane.[1] Without a cell wall, they are unaffected by many common antibiotics such as penicillin or other beta-lactam antibiotics that target cell wall synthesis.

They can be parasitic or saprotrophic.

Several species are pathogenic in humans, including M. pneumoniae, which is an important cause of atypical pneumonia and other respiratory disorders, and M. genitalium, which is believed to be involved in pelvic inflammatory diseases.

Mycoplasma species are the smallest bacterial cells yet discovered,[2] can survive without oxygen, and come in various shapes.

For example, M. genitalium is flask-shaped (about 300 x 600 nm), while M. pneumoniae is more elongated (about 100 x 1000 nm). Hundreds of mycoplasmae infect animals.[3] . . .

. . . Other species of Mycoplasma other than those listed below have been recovered from humans, but are assumed to have been contracted from animals. These use humans as the primary host:

M. amphoriforme
M. buccale
M. faucium

M. fermentans
M. genitalium
M. hominis

M. lipophilum
M. orale
M. penetrans

M. pirum
M. pneumoniae
M. primatum

M. salivarium
M. spermatophilum[7] . . . .

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).

He has been a presenter at various ILADS conference on this topic.

http://buhnerhealinglyme.com/?s=Mycoplasma

Buhner's site search for: Mycoplasma - 38 entries

check dates for all comments - and then find the most up to date detail to complete that.

http://buhnerhealinglyme.com/?s=Myco

on BUHNER's site, search: Myco - six entries - but most have to do with mycoplasma, itself.

One of those:

http://buhnerhealinglyme.com/co-infections/raintrees-myco/

Q: . . . was wondering if you think it would be beneficial to add Raintree’s Myco product into the lyme protocol to help eradicate mycoplasmas that may co-exist? . . ."

Stephen’s response - on February 22, 2012

"It can’t hurt to use it and I have heard from a few people that it has helped."

Of course, reading all of his entries, AND his books on the matter is vital before coming to any conclusions.


http://buhnerhealinglyme.com/co-infections/does-mycoplasma-protocol-cover-all-forms-of-mycoplasma/

Q: Does mycoplasma protocol cover all forms of mycoplasma?

See Buhner's reply posted on March 8, 2013

http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi/ubb/search/search_forum/1

Search LymeNet ARCHIVES for past threads on this topic.

For instance, there have been past threads both on MYCO and also on Raintree / Rain-tree. Many threads, of course on mycoplasma.

Best to use key terms in the "subject" bar and search both in medical and general forums.

Of course, the work of various ILADS LLMD and LL ND authors / presenters should be here. Another day, or an invitation to others to share.

I just ordered 2 bottle of Raintree MYCO after last using it last November from the same place. I expect delivery on Tuesday. [And, if you are interested, 5 of the 6 herbs BULK POWDER in SPIRO are half price right now as they are changing over label style].

Raintree Myco is available here (just take the hyphen out of the URL . . . but study can still be done at many of the original sites pages):

You ask about the other link / brand - rainpharm -

The ingredients appear to be the same, however, in their "About Us" page, they tell us nothing at all about really who they are, who is behind the development of the formulas,

or about rainpharm's practices, sources, treatment of & relationship with growers / land-tenders, or the eco-management of natural resources.

I would not feel confident in rainpharm because they don't address any of that (and they may have stolen the Raintree formula as they sure don't credit Taylor for that intellectual material).

On the other hand, with the other I've posted about,

Raintree, the formula was developed by Leslie Taylor and their operational practices are still very much in line with her work and are shared with customers so all can read. The people who have taken up the Raintree products are in line with the original ethics.

bluelyme, you are most cordially welcome. I thought I'd expand this but just lost all oomph and must get on with other matters of functioning. Maybe later. But it's a good start, I think. Others welcome to expand.

Brussels just posted this thread with a good link and also some of her own notes. The extra detail on some specific herbs is very nice. And some of these are helpful for various reasons.
