Mycoplasmal Infections: Underlying Cause of Many Degenerative Diseases
Published at 4 Mar 2014

Mycoplasma is a type of bacteria lacking a cell wall. For this very reason, they are unaffected by many antibiotics and are very difficult to detect. Mycoplasmas can change thier appaerence and structure depending on where they are in the body. 


Unlike viruses, mycoplasma can grow in tissue fluids such as blood, joint, heart, chest and spinal fluids, and can grow inside any living tissue cell without killing the cells, as most normal bacteria and viruses do. Mycoplasmas are frequently found in the oral and genito-urinary tracts of normal healthy people and are found to infect females four times more often than males, which just happens to be the same incidence rate in rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue and other related disorders.

Mycoplasmas are parasitic in nature because they rely on the nutrients found in host cells including cholesterol, amino acids, fatty acids and even DNA. They especially thrive in cholesterol rich and arginine-rich environments.

They need cholesterol for membrane function and growth, and there is an abundance of cholesterol in the bronchial tubes of the respiratory tract. Once attached to a host cell, they then begin competing for nutrients inside the host cells. As nutrients are depleted, then these host cells can begin to malfunction, or even change normal functioning of the cell, causing a chain reaction with other cells (especially within the immune and endocrine systems). Mycoplasmas can even cause RNA and DNA mutation of the host cells and have been linked to certain cancers (colon, gastric, lung, prostate, renal) for this reason. Mycoplasmas can also invade and live inside host cells which evade the immune system, especially white blood cells. Once inside a white blood cell, mycoplasmas can travel throughout the body and even cross the blood/brain barrier, and into the central nervous system and spinal fluid.

In some people the attachment of mycoplasmas to the host cell cause the host's immune system to  attack itself and/or seemingly healthy cells . This reaction often results in painful inflamed tissues, like those found in rheumatoid diseases, fibromyalgia and many other autoimmune disorders like lupus and MS, Crohn's and others. Some species of mycoplasmas also have the unique ability to completely evade the immune system.

Mycoplasmal infections are very dangerous because they tend to pass unnoticed and as the infection spreads, they can compormise many organs and body functions.

So far, several symptoms associated with a mycoplasmal infection has  been detected, including: joint pain or reduced mobiliy; muscle spasms; chronic fatigue; depression; headaches; vision problems or light sensitivty; cognitive problems; stuttering; breathing problems; cardiac problems; bloating, diarrhea, flatulence, vomiting, nausea or stomach cramps; lack of bladder control; nasal congestion; impotence, loss of libido; menstrual pain; sore throat and upper respiratory conditions;  tinnitus; skin rashes; yeats infections; allergies; night swets.

Mycoplasmas have been dectcted in tissues of people suffering from several disease, such as: arthritis; genito-urinary disorders; HI; fibromyalgua; psoriasis; autoimmune disorders; Crohn's; IBS; cancer; leukemia; multiple sclerosis; diabetes; pneumonia; eyes disorders and infections; respiratory disorders; central nervous system disorders; cardivascukar disorders; gengivitis; and many others.

What to do
Immune boosting supplements may help the immune system to overcome the infection. It's also advisable to take supplements that can help increase the supply of nutrients to cells, such as: vitamins; minerals like zinc, magnesium, chromium, sleenium; amino acids; coenzyme Q10; bioflavonoids; folic acid; flaxseed oil; intestinal flora replacer including fructoologosaccharides (FOS).

On the other hand, you need to combat the infection without impairing the immune system an. Amazon Myco, a botanical formulation containing rainforest plants, might help you in this. Myco does contain botanicals that have been used for centuries to fight infections, so it might actually help to fight not only mycoplasmas, but also other bacteria and viruses that might have attacked your weakened body.
