Dear all

This is really exciting news! Dr Alan MacDonald has launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund further research into Alzheimer's and Borrelia after his recent amazing findings of Borrelia burgdorferi AND B. miyamotoi in Alzheimer's brain tissue.

Please support his campaign and circulate this message below re Dr. MacDonald's campaign (see below) Thanks.

1. Spectacular Findings show DNA of Two Different Borrelia in Alzheimer Brain Tissue; Dr. Alan MacDonald Launches Crowdfunding Appeal for Research

Dr. Alan MacDonald, patron of the Spirochaetal Alzheimer's Association (SAA) and the first scientist to identify Borrelia spirochaetes in the brains of Alzheimer's victims, has obtained further spectacular results.

Using his extremely advanced Molecular Beacon DNA probes, he has found TWO different types of Borrelia bacteria in autopsy tissue. The bacteria concerned are Borrelia burgdorferi (cause of Lyme Disease) and Borrelia miyamotoi (biologically classified as a Relapsing Fever bacterium, but also implicated in Lyme Disease).

Dr. MacDonald has now launched a crowd-funding appeal so that he can extend his research. We urge everyone to support this appeal, which could finally open a door of hope for victims of dementia. Please give generously, and further circulate this appeal to others. Thank you.

SITE OF APPEAL

Dr MacDonald writes:

"Alzheimer's Disease studied at autopsy demonstrates that infection by Borrelia spirochetes is regularly present in autopsy Alzheimer's Disease
brains. The chronic Borrelia brain Infection is a cause of Alzheimer's Disease.

The model for dementia CAUSED by chronic brain infections by spirochetes is the conclusive model of Dr. Hideyo Noguchi, who proved that late, chronic brain infection with Treponema pallidum spirochetes is
the CAUSE of General Paresis (Syphilis dementia).

21st century tools investigate infection by detection of the microbe's DNA at the site of the disease in human tissue.

DNA of Borrelia is present in the following areas of the Alzheimer's brain:

1. All of the Alzheimer's Plaques

2. Perfect Spirochetes (Borrelia) are also seen
under the fluorescent microscope
in solid brain tissues, and in the blood vessels
of the brain.

3. All of the Granular bodies which are present
in dying nerve cells in the Alzheimer's Brain
(Granulo-vacuolar Degeneration: (GVB Lesions))

Autopsy brain, when placed in laboratory cultures, produces pure cultures of Borrelia spirochetes.

My present research uses DNA Probes, specific for Borrelia , to bind to sites in diseased brain tissues, specifically Alzheimer's Disease autopsy brain tissues.

The FISH method (Fluorescence In Situ DNA Hybridization) in my research utilizes the BEST DNA PROBES available today, specifically
Molecular Beacons. The Molecular Beacons absolutely bind to target Borrelia DNA - but only will bind to the DNA if there is a 100% match between the Borrelia DNA in diseased tissues and the DNA structure in my Molecular Beacon DNA Probes.

If even a single Base (nucleotide "A", “T”, "G", or "C") mismatch exists, the 100% rule for Molecular Beacon binding is violated, and no signal will be released by the DNA probe.
A positive signal therefore indicates that the 100% match rule for Molecular Beacon DNA Probe binding has been satisfied. A Positive FISH hybridization in Alzheimer's brain is bulletproof evidence of Borrelia
infection, visualized by fluorescent microscopy.

FISH Borrelia Probes permit visualization of the ENTIRE Borrelia
spirochete - at the EXACT sites of Alzheimer's tissue
injuries.

In a series of cases from the Harvard Brain Bank ,(from Alzheimer's Disease Brains), my Molecular Beacon DNA Probes bound to Borrelia DNA in ALL CASES STUDIED. (5/5)

The astonishing observation in my DNA probe studies on the Harvard Brain Bank Alzheimer's Disease cases is the discovery of not just one, but TWO strains of borrelia, in five of five Alzheimer' s brains.

Two different species of Borrelia spirochetes, (Burgdorferi and Miyamotoi), were simultaneously present in the Alzheimer's Brain tissues from Harvard.

As the first researcher to discover the presence of Borrelia burgdorferi in Alzheimer's brain tissue, I published my findings in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1986. I was able to demonstrate
Borrelia spirochetes from 4 cases obtained from Dr. George Glenner's Brain Bank at the UCSD in San Diego.

I succeeded, in a total of 6 Alzheimer's cases, in culturing in the laboratory living Borrelia spirochetes from DEAD (Autopsy Brain) tissue between 1986 to 1988.

Subsequently, in year 1993, culture of borrelia from autopsy Alzheimer's disease tissue was again verified by Dr. Judith Miklossy, in Switzerland.

In year 2015, my research continues, with DNA probes
specific for Borrelia DNA in Alzheimer's tissue. I request your support to extend my DNA Probe studies to connect Chronic Deep Brain Infection with Borrelia burgdorferi and Borrelia miyamotoi in Alzheimer's patients.

I want to extend my research to study the spinal fluid from living donor patients with Dementia to detect Borrelia DNA in the spinal fluid.

Early Detection of Borrelia brain infection offers the opportunity for the patient to be treated in the hope that ERADICATION of brain and spinal fluid infection, can prevent the development of Dementia.

I thank you for your support. All of my research has always been FREE for all, and will remain free for all.

None of my discoveries have been, or ever will be, patented . No patient / volunteer will ever be charged for my research on their behalf.

Respectfully submitted,

Yes, the real lesson here is that we have to directly fund our own research. The existing health establishment has made it clear that they will only fund Lyme researchers who toe the disinformation line.

One of the most exciting things about this, IMO, is that if Dr MacDonald starts to detect Borrelia in a significant number of **living** Alzheimer patients (a purpose of this fundraiser is for him to study the CSF), then that opens up the possibility for those patients to try some treatment. Should they then start to make real improvements, the Denialists will no longer be able to suppress that information - even if they lean on all the editorial boards of all the major journals.

The news would have a momentum of its own - like the ancient Chinese discovery of gunpowder did [Big Grin]

I like your name Eight Legs Bad, and I agree.

I hope to get a job soon so I can help fund my own recovery, but also to give money to Anthony Holland and Dr. M.

I'm back in a good way!

I was just able to donate $145 to Dr. MacDonald's research. I am donating my business commission of 30%. I work for a company that produces products of all kinds WITHOUT harmful chemicals. I used these to lower my toxic body burden since my 3 1/2 years of antibiotics & other protocol. I have switched to ONLY using these products for myself and love them. It's been the perfect job for me while recovering and I'm building a team.

So if you would like to donate this way to Dr. MacDonald, my site is www.NonToxicChick.com and you must put it under party ID #78050 for me to allocate the 30%. My consultant ID is #5437 if you get timed out.

Here is his direct site to donte 100%: http://www.gofundme.com/z3v2a2k

I learned a great deal from Dr. MacDonald by interviewing him at UNH in Connecticut several years ago. I've published my three-part interview with him on my biofilm channel:

Please view these incredible microscopic images of spirochaete bacteria in the autopsy brain tissue of American Alzheimer's disease victims.

This is all very recent NEW work (this summer).

Molecular Beacon DNA probes absolutely specific for Borrelia burgdorferi and Borrelia miyamotoi bacteria were positive in the specimens during studies performed by Dr. Alan MacDonald, patron of the Spirochaetal Alzheimer's Association, in July 2015.

I see that Dr Macdonald is nearing the target of $15,000: he needs just over $3,000 now for his research.
