Re: IV VANCOMYCIN- I have questions PLEASE

I don't know anything about Evan's previous therapies or even his age so I'm just talking thru my hat here. Is it possible that the doc is doing a Hail-Mary play (desperation move) against suspected but unproven resistant strains of staph or strep? "Vanco, Zith and Rif" Have you checked the P450 dyn...

Re: Update on Lyme Legislative Forum March 28th

Ah yes, yet another gathering of groupies. Y'all go, have a good time, pal around a bit and go home feeling that you have all done your part for the greater glory of the Lyme movement.

Re: EDTA with abx for haemobartonella/mycoplasma bug

I believe that bartonella antibodytests are often false positive

Re: Warp 10 research help (Near Infrared like Bionic 880)

Okay, you made me look. I scrolled the page you linked at http://www.warp-heals.com but none of those links were to the Journal of Immunology or any other medical journal. Did I miss something? I did find links that led to a report of using LEDs in simulated surgery. How is that related to killing b...
