It's incredibly hard to treat for a few reasons. For starters this protozoa lives in the blood stream and gets its strength from fats. So every single meal you eat that contains any form of fat what-so-ever is feeding this little guy to get even stronger. That's problem #1. The second problem is that a classic tell tale sign of Protomyxzoa is its ability to make mass amounts of biofilm in a very small amount of time. If you are not familiar with biofilm here is a quick rundown of it. Biofilms are formed when bacteria enclose themselves in a sticky polysaccharide. Once this polysaccharide is formed the bacteria can no longer leave and when new bacteria are produced they stay within the polysaccharide layer. This layer, which is the biofilm, is highly protective for the organisms within it. In fact, it is considered a fact that many bacteria could not survive in the environment outside of biofilms. Basically, the biofilm is like a safe haven for these bugs to hide in. When lots of biofilms form in the body you can get very thick sludgy blood and have coagulation issues. If I stand for longer than 10 minutes my legs get purple-ish and spotted looking. And when I'm cold I always have that splotchy look all over my skin. The reason for that is biofilms that have created coagulation issues and in turn my blood circulation isn't so great.
But I digress.. The trouble with biofilm is not just that it helps these organisms multiply, it's that it also houses other bugs as well. In my case I also have Lyme and Bartonella, so under the biofilm is trapped all 3 of my infections. That's what makes getting rid of them all completely a difficult task to do. The Protomyxoa by nature seems to help all other offending pathogens get a protective shelter. Basically it takes whatever you have and gives it this superpower.
And lastly, the final hurdle in treating this is the fact that there isn't a clear cut drug (traditional or herbal) that kills it the best. Many doctors (including Dr. Fry) uses anti-malarial meds, anti-protozoans, and anti-parasitics, and some doctors use Artemesinin which is a potent herb used to treat Malaria. However, these meds don't do much good if they cant get past the biofilm, or if you continue to feed it fats so it can get stronger and resist being killed off.
It's really kind of insane if you sit down and think about how smart a small tiny organism can be, and the fact that it can evade the human body the way it does. Totally baffles me when I really sit down and think about it. But, this post wasn't meant to be horribly depressing, I hoped it would be educational. There is very little information out there about Protomyxzoa on the internet, and not that many doctors know about it or know how to treat it. But, that's not to say it can not be done. I don't like to hear the word Can't being said to me, because it just fuels me to prove it wrong. I don't believe that it's impossible to cure Protomyxzoa. I believe that it will be a hell of a fight once I start to break down biofilm because God only knows what is going on in there. Once I take away the shield so many of these bacteria are comfortable hiding in I know my body will go into major fight mode, which means I will go into major struggle mode. But nothing scares me at this point. My neurological issues refuse to budge and this is the only thing I haven't got around to treating so it seems very likely that it's the culprit.
I believe the way to approach this Protozoa is a 3 step process. 1. No fat diet (STRICT) 2. Spend a month or two building up on powerful biofilm dissolvers 3. Hit it with pulsed doses of Artemesinin and other meds like Ivermectin, Albendazole, et al.
I have spent hours upon hours reading and journaling everything I could find out about Protomyxzoa. I read Dr. Klinghardt's lecture notes on it, I read Dr. Fry's info on it, and I read up on every treatment protocol I could find. I also spent time finding any patients I could who got into remission or had their symptoms dramatically improve. I think I have about 10 pages of just notes that I scribbled down as I learned new things. I wanted to know my enemy before I went into battle and I wanted to feel 100% positive and ready for it. With that being said I plan to go into attack mode in the next few weeks. I am waiting to speak with my Doctor about a few more things and I will certainly be keeping this updated in the Treatment Tab on what I'm doing, etc.
Oh and PS Happy Lyme Awareness month everyone!
Hi Everyone! It's been 2 years since I have written this post and I have since learned and compiled more information about Protomyxzoa from Dr. Fry himself. It seems he has found a working combination of meds to knock out the Protomyxzoa very recently, and most of his patients respond very well to this method.
Although protomyzoa is a protozoa in nature, Dr. Fry discovered that it also has strong "fungal like" characteristics. He was treating his patients with Doxycycline because although that is an antibiotic (not an anti-parasitic or anti-malarial which I spoke of above), it seemed to work better. The reason why is because Doxycycline works well for organisms that have fungal like properties. The true breakthrough however was rather recently when Dr. Fry learned that Doxycycline in COMBINATION with an anti-fungal called Lamisil was as absolute wonder together. He had a patient who was on Doxy for a few months & got put in Lamisil for an unrelated fungal infection. Within a week this patient took off in terms of symptom alleviation and after a few months was completely well. He studied this theory in depth and since then has had massive success with every patient he put on this specific treatment combo. I do not know the dosage of this, or the frequency, because that is not info that he could give out. However, his enthusiasm for the success of this combo was palpable.
I wanted to share this info as soon as I could, but I myself has not tried this treatment yet. I do not do well with doxy, so at this point it will be a bit of a work around to see what I can or can't do. However, I feel very hopeful because until now there wasn't a huge amount of enthusiasm in terms of treatment for Protomyxzoa Rheumatica.
As always, the low-fat diet is still key, and so are biofilm dissolvers to help the drugs penetrate to the organism. I will continue to update this page with new information as I get any, and if you have tried this treatment yourself and would like to share with others about your success (or lack of success) please comment below! This post has become like a thread where we all speak to one another in the comment section, so definitely chime in if you have anything to add or any questions!
