Google peptide therapy. It has been used in Europe for years. In the US there are very few docotrs using Peptide therapy, but it looks like the list may begin to grow.

Peptide therapy is done by injection and is usually used for autoimmune diseases. At this point it is not covered by insurance in the US.

Thank you SandiB for this very interesting and hopeful article.

Very interesting, thanks for posting, Sandi.

Feelfit, I looked at Dr.Dakos' site, thanks for posting it. Do you know of people with Lyme who have been treated by him? If so, I would love to hear more.

Please PM me if you have more doctor-related information to share.

Thank you.

Nancy

Sad, a trillion in Iraq, a trillion on Wall Street, a billion for one bomber, but some group has to come up with around a hundred thousand dollars themselves to try to help thousands suffering from a disease. That wouldn't be one AIG bonus.

Well who knows there might be some immune factor in this. It might not cure it, but maybe bring relief.

I'm convinced that no one knows for sure what the interactions are between these microbes and our body.
