Not sure if it was posted before. Just found it on the internet.
Any new treatment?
Posted by MichaelTampa (Member # 24868) on :
It is being treated a lot like it were babesia. There are probably many people treating it and not realizing it and thinking it is babesia.
Posted by hadlyme (Member # 6364) on :
Malerone and a low fat diet, whole foods, is working with it the best. But again, each person is different in how treatment works, but this seems to be working for many. I am one of them.
Posted by hadlyme (Member # 6364) on :
The whole new name for FL195 is Protomyxozoa rheumatica.
Posted by blinkie (Member # 14470) on :
Is malarone alone being used?

Is the standard lymie dose of malarose being used?

rhe interesting thing ,though, is not the name.WHAT IS IT- WHAT DOES IT RESEMBLE?
Posted by springshowers (Member # 19863) on :
It resembles a puffy white cloudy cotton ball
Stuck in a puddle if oil
[Wink] cute
Still digging f
And poking ? Call the lab for sample pictures !!!

At least three unidentified bugs have been seen in my blood after a whole lot of treatment. Is this one of them, I wonder? Fry found "hemobartonella" adhering to RBC's. But this Protomyxozoa rheumatica sounds like it is not the same thing.

If these things have already survived the standard lyme and babesia drugs, then why would it help to try them again?

The Protomyxozoa rheumatica is different than the hemobartonella. I was tested a few months ago, and was positive for both.

If you've been treating for a while with anti-malarial drugs and still have symptoms, then consider biofilm busting strategies to get through to the protozoa such as systemic enzymes or EDTA. Also, many swear by the low fat, low arginine diet for dissolving biofilm.

When I started adding these biofilm penetraters to my regime using lumbrokinase, wobezyme and detoxamin, I started to see increased resolution of symptoms. There are other products like Klaire Labs Interfase Plus and Bio-Genesis EDTA Liposomal, which Springshowers told us about.

Posted by MichaelTampa (Member # 24868) on :
Not sure what you're asking Gale. It is a protozoa. I haven't heard of any family trees being done for it, I know that sounds funny and not wanting to be a smart alek, but what are you asking? Perhaps the answer is that nobody knows and that's why the question looks unfamiliar?
Posted by karenl (Member # 17753) on :

I also cannot understand your scientific question. If you are sick, just treat it.
Many got better with treatment.
Posted by hadlyme (Member # 6364) on :
You can always email or call the lab and they will explain things to you too. I believe you've asked about this before, and we've asked you to call them or email them.

Many different articles out there right now on this. has a good one on this too.

Or get on the lab website and you can see it.

As the title says Protomyxzoa rheumatica is the correct spelling.... no extra o in middle.

Was told it is more complex than a bacteria... more complex than malaria. Dr. F says that it is associated with biofilm... and bacteria like Lyme and others can also be stuck in the biofilm.

Current treatment: antimalarials are used along with very low fat diet.
Posted by galehane (Member # 15437) on :
thank you mjbucuk

a tiny step in the right direction.
Judging from the "indirect"info on the web.Treatment of this bug has gone from drugs that were effective from a range of different protozoa. Azithromycine , doxyh etc to others more effective against other kind of parasitic organisms.
Wpould still be useful if thyere was more knowledge about its nature- that is its "relatives".
Posted by imagine2 (Member # 3136) on :
I was told it "acts" like Toxo. Sorry, I wish I knew more about it for you. Am glad it finally got a name.
Posted by springshowers (Member # 19863) on :
Its the most difficult to treat and get under control and it is smart and hides and also causes a lot of the left over symptoms you have after treating lyme disease.

Do not ignore this bug and while treating make sure to use biofilm treatment protocols or you will have a very hard time getting to them.

These buggers are my biggest bother....of all the ":bugs"
