      the GI guy found three gastric ulcers and an h pylori infection along with small intestinal errosion. he said that if we get rid of the infection, my illness might cease to be catylized. because i have just had a series of acute bouts of motor disturbances in cyclical manner (with my periods) perhaps this could go in conjuction with the leaky gut theory of why for some the bouts turn off and for some it doesnt. still waiting for porphyria test to get back but just like with onco genes, porphyria genes need catylists. once again porphyrias only true presentation is a misstep in the biosythesis of heme, in the mistep heme precursers spill out the havoc it wreaks it absolutally endless but this latent gene needs catylists. Damage puts forth mechanisms that ensure that for some there is perpetual onset. FOr MS we are learning that CCSVI is the mechanism. Could leaky gut be the mechanism for CIDP? anyway ultimately you have to look at all autoimmune disease and ask a misstep in the biosythesis of heme fits how with this illness. what does blood have to do with this illness and I assure you that in everything from diabetes to osteoporosis to cidp to MS to lupus you can see how it all fits in. And yes in EUROPE they have found that these genes are not even close to rare, think about it!!!!!

      I think we are both on the same path!! I hope it gets us some answers soon!! I especially feel that there is a connection with the LG to all autoimmune since 70-80 % of the immune system is centered around the gut. (Just my mom opinion so take it with a grain of salt) If our LG turns out to be caused by candida, I am going to have to figure out if we go the natural way to cure it and go through the dying off period which makes you worse before you get better. As well, the natural way could take up to 9-12 months. Or do we go for the nystatin and a comb of some supplements. Some of my readings, ironically by natropaths, suggest western medicine is sometimes the only way because if the candida is deep with in the biofilms, the supplemnts can’t get to it. Who really is to say or know? This trial and error by ourselves is really getting hard.

      yeah the compartmentalization of medicine has been the worse thing for it. these doctors should take a renaissance approach to medicine and then they will realize that its all splitting hairs on the same shaft. I have to go to a different doctor for each set of damage. my next step is endochrinologist. the GI was a great angle I am glad i took the only problem is the gastro guy has no idea what his dicipline has to do with neurology, hemotology, endocrinology or he just doesnt care. If they would just communicate as a team they would see the connection that damage is a domino effect. even psychosis is the physiological result of some biological imbalence but if we have scizophrenia we end up with a phsychiatrist really one should start with a nutrition panal and ask why is everything so far off.
