    I just figured this out, so I wrote it down in case I get struck by lightning before daybreak.

    I was doing some internet research and ran across this:

    Pathogen that causes disease in cattle also associated with Crohn's disease
    August 7, 2008
    People with Crohn's disease (CD) are seven-fold more likely to have in their gut tissues the bacterium that causes a digestive-tract disease in cattle called Johne's disease. The role this bacterium may or may not play in causing CD is a top research priority, according to a new report released by the American Academy of Microbiology. The reports points out that the cause of CD is unknown, and the possible role of this bacterium—which could conceivably be passed up the food chain to people—has received too little attention from the research community. "

    Anyway, with certain types of "auto-immune diseases" of unknown causes, many times they're triggered by infections that the victim's immune system can't kill, and so the victim suffers from both the pathogenic infection and the immune system's over-reaction (flailing about ineffectively, attacking tissues indiscriminately). Such seems to be the case with Crohn's Disease. (And Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Atherosclerosis, but I digress.)

    The cause of Crohn's Disease is likely due to exposure to tainted beef or infected cows. The "MAP" pathogen infects the gut and the immune system can't kill it, so it goes into overdrive attacking other tissues that bear some random similarity to the infected tissues, much like RA.

    The cure would be a course of antibiotics that would be capable of killing "MAP", but since cattle are routinely dosed with antibiotics, MAP is likely to be inherently resistant to conventional antibiotics that would be available to doctors. Instead, I'd recommend a combination of Tagamet or Prilosec to reduce the acidity of the stomach, plus, once the stomach acids had been minimized by the proton-pump inhibitors, a glass of water with a teaspoon of baking soda in it to negate the remaining hydrochloric acid in the stomach, followed immediately (within a minute or so) by 4 - 8 ounces of 10ppm Colloidal Silver from a reliable source, such as Sovereign Silver or Bio-Alternatives CS, available via the internet for reasonable prices (~$20/pint). I use them interchangeably, whichever is handier, but the Bio-Alternatives.com prices are generally a bit cheaper and the product quality is the same.

    Pt. 2


    The key to the effectiveness of Colloidal Silver is the average size of the silver clusters - Viruses are rendered incapable of virulence by clusters in the size range of 1 to 10 nanometers (billionths of a meter). To put this into context, a single atom of silver is about 0.2 nanometers in diameter, so the clusters are made up of a few dozen to a few hundred atoms. At this size, they are capable of "gumming-up" the active-sites of anaerobic pathogens' enzymes. How Colloidal Silver works is something of a mystery, especially to biochemists who aren't generally trained in Quantum Mechanics, but my background/education does include Quantum Mechanics, and how the clusters work to gum-up the enzymes is fairly obvious to me - Silver is an excellent catalyst, meaning its valence isn't well-defined. This is due to the density of the heavy nucleus, which causes the inner electrons to "orbit" the nucleus at Relativistic speeds, causing time dilation, and causing fractional valences as a consequence. QM precludes fractional valences, so the silver atoms are in a constant state of flux between the two nearest integer valences. When the silver atom is at one valence, it binds with one type of atom looking for that valence for a co-valent bond, and when it later "changes its mind" and reverts to the other nearest valence, it leaves the atom it just bound to and hooks-up with another atom of a different valence. It changes its mind again, and ends up leaving two "jilted lovers" at the same place and the same time, and they "hook-up" as the silver atom goes off looking for another temporary conquest, like Keanu Reeves at a Hollywood party.

    Anyway, this behavior, in clusters of silver atoms that are approximately the right size for the active site of binding enzymes to attach themselves to human cells and invading/infecting them, plays havoc with the pathogens, and precludes their ability to infect the host's cells. See Figure 3 and read the Abstract of the paper at this link: http://www.jnanobiotechnology.com/content/3/1/6
    Interaction of silver nanoparticles with HIV-1
    Abstract

    The interaction of nanoparticles with biomolecules and microorganisms is an expanding field of research. Within this field, an area that has been largely unexplored is the interaction of metal nanoparticles with viruses. In this work, we demonstrate that silver nanoparticles undergo a size-dependent interaction with HIV-1, with nanoparticles exclusively in the range of 1–10 nm attached to the virus. The regular spatial arrangement of the attached nanoparticles, the center-to-center distance between nanoparticles, and the fact that the exposed sulfur-bearing residues of the glycoprotein knobs would be attractive sites for nanoparticle interaction suggest that silver nanoparticles interact with the HIV-1 virus via preferential binding to the gp120 glycoprotein knobs. Due to this interaction, silver nanoparticles inhibit the virus from binding to host cells, as demonstrated in vitro."

    The upshot is that Crohn's Disease can be cured, or at least treated effectively, by a simple, non-invasive two-step process - 1) Negate the stomach acid which would reduce the silver clusters to silver salts, and 2) Drink a glass of Colloidal Silver, 10ppm concentration, with average cluster sizes ranging from 1 to 10 nanometers (as is available from either Sovereign Silver or Bio-Alternatives.com). As a follow-up to this procedure, I'd recommend consumption of some active-culture yogurt ("Activia" or the equivalent).

    OK, Atherosclerosis.

    Immune Response #1 - Detect alien pathogen, attack and kill it.

    Immune Response #2 - When #1 fails, encapsulate the alien pathogen with platelets and plaster the outside with calcium deposits. (See "Tuberculosis".)

    It turns out that the bloodstream has the same pathogens in it that the gut has (some of which can be pretty hard to kill, as in the case of Crohn's Disease, described above).

    http://www.physorg.com/news/2010-10-bacteria-mouth-gut-arteries.html

    Bacteria in mouth and gut also found in arteries

    "The same types of bacteria found in arterial plaque, which causes atherosclerosis, are also found in the mouth and gut.
    ...
    In atherosclerosis, a fatty material called plaque collects along the walls of arteries, where it thickens, hardens (forming calcium deposits) and may eventually block the arteries."

    So much for the HDL/LDL theories. The arterial plaques are simply following Immune Response #2, described above.

    Part 2, Cure:

    Since I mentioned "cures" in the title of this thread, here's the cure for atherosclerosis:

    1) Take Colloidal Silver manufactured by a reputable source (Sovereign Silver and Bio-Alternatives are two that I trust, but have no vested interest in) in accordance with recommended dosage instructions. (For the squeamish, you can get the same silver clusters in the bloodstream without swallowing the CS by swishing it around in your mouth for 30 seconds or so, like mouthwash, and spitting it out.) For those with chronic coughs, as I had for over a decade, you can buy a spray bottle of CS and use it like an asthma-inhaler, getting it as deep into your lungs as possible. If you have chronic sinus problems, use the same sprayer to spray it up each nostril with your head tilted back until it runs down the back of your throat. If this doesn't cure your sinus problem, use an antihistamine spray 20 minutes before using the CS as described so that the openings to the infected sinuses have a chance to open up and allow the CS to enter the infected sinuses and kill whatever pathogen that's caused the infection. This may take time (like three days, total), so be patient. The lung-inhalation approach is probably the most efficient way to get the CS straight into the bloodstream, where it's needed.

    Continue this daily for at least a month, using about 1/2oz to 1oz per day, to allow the silver cluster enough time to penetrate the calcified shell. (The silver clusters in the two CS brands identified are small enough to penetrate the calcium deposits via osmosis, in the range of less than 1 nanometer to 10 nanometers. Individual atoms are generally about 0.2 nanometers in diameter.) Once the silver clusters have infiltrated the plaques, they'll kill whatever pathogen the immune system couldn't kill, and the plaques will be pointless and can safely be disposed-of without concern of a "jail-break heart attack" (or stroke.)

    http://www.physorg.com/news202967220.html

    'Jailbreak' bacteria can trigger heart disease

    RE-EDITED BELOW: ALL IN ITALICS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED A SIGNIFICANT RISK OF POTENTIAL STROKE OR HEART ATTACK. THE CALCIUM HARDENING THE PLAQUE IS THERE FOR THE PURPOSE OF PREVENTING "SUDDEN PLAQUE RUPTURE", WHICH CAN LEAD TO A BLOOD CLOT IN THE BLOODSTREAM - VERY POSSIBLE CAUSE OF SUDDEN HEART ATTACK OR STROKE. DON'T TAKE EDTA UNLESS YOUR ARTERIES HAVEN'T HARDENED YET OR YOU HAVE LITTLE CHOICE BETWEEN THIS RISK AND THE RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH STANDARD STENTING/BYPASS OPERATIONS (NEITHER OF WHICH HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO EXTEND AVERAGE LIFESPANS OF PATIENTS)



    2) Remove calcified plaques from arteries via EDTA Chelation. EDTA is "generally recognized as safe" and is common in many processed foods, and is widely-available in health food stores, pharmacies, and via the internet. The chelation process generally calls for taking two pills per day (12 hours apart) on an empty stomach with a large glass of bottled water (preferably distilled). Repeat this for five days (ten pills, total) and then stop for nine days, taking good quality mineral supplements for those nine days off to replace the minerals eliminated that should've been kept, like in your bones.

    Note: If you have osteoporosis, you'll need to weigh the benefits of cleaner arteries against the potential for further weakening your bones. It's a judgment call that's yours to make. My oldest brother has osteoporosis and no symptoms of atherosclerosis, so he's not going to go through chelation. I did, however, manage to discover why he's been losing bone density - he's been taking too much Vitamin C and no mineral supplements, and his blood/bodily fluids are highly acidic as a consequence. He's now taking less Vitamin C, and taking Alpha-Lipoic Acid (which recycles Vitamins C and E) and mineral supplements, and has increased his intake of Vitamin D3 to 2000IU/day. I'm expecting his bone density to start increasing soon.

    Each chelation cycle ends up taking two weeks (five days on, nine days off). It's generally stated that noticeable results require three such cycles, back-to-back (six weeks total, and thirty EDTA pills total), and that this isn't recommended more than once per year.

    As always, I never recommend anything that I don't try on myself, first, so I'm on the second chelation cycle (of the recommended three) and I can honestly say that I'm already feeling an increase of stamina, despite my sedentary lifestyle.

    So hold-off on the EDTA Chelation Therapy for another month, at least, to see if I suddenly drop dead after taking the last pill.

    Part 3 - Rheumatoid Arthritis:


    As for Rheumatoid Arthritis, I don't have it and can't test any treatment I'd recommend for it, but from what I've been able to gather from relatives who have it, it fits the same pattern as Immune Response #2 and Crohn's Disease, so I'd probably treat it the same way I'd treat atherosclerosis, described above, with CS to kill the pathogen causing the immune response and EDTA Chelation Therapy to halt the deposition of calcium in the infected joints.

    http://tinyurl.com/2bve55h (from Johns Hopkins)

    "The Role of Infection and Rheumatoid Arthritis
    Several types of arthritis occur as a result of infections. You’re probably familiar with Lyme disease, which is the result of a bite from an infected deer tick. The bacterium the tick transmits first causes a rash, fever, and neck stiffness. Weeks later, victims may develop severe joint inflammation (Lyme arthritis) that can last for months, or even for a lifetime. Some researchers think that in people who are genetically susceptible to rheumatoid arthritis, exposure to certain bacteria or viruses can trigger the abnormal immune response that causes the disease."

    "just get me a room with balcony on the Champs d'Elysee and let me go in peace with a nice glass of wine and some pain pills, watching life"

    ME: "So much for the HDL/LDL theories."

    Zelda, if I'm right about this (I am), then you can have as many cheeseburgers with your glasses of wine as you'd like, cholesterol wouldn't be the cause of atherosclerosis, chronic infections in the arteries would be, and those you can kill with CS and get rid of the useless plaques with thirty pills, total, over the course of six weeks.

    Or, if you'd really *prefer* to get a Heart By-Pass operation, feel free.

    It was one of those P_A things from from my Ex. He knew it was the most imp. thing to me as I had never in my life been without and had recently had back surgery which sent rates very very high for me. He deliberately missed the time alloted to transfer without going through preexistings.. Now, it is expensive, but, more than anything, I cannot stand the endless intrusion into my history.

    So you pay out of pocket, Z? We did that for awhile, until we were forced to go through our employer, which kind of sucked, because our coverage was better with the plan we were paying for. It should have been--it was really expensive! Premiums through our employer are much cheaper, but the coverage isn't as good.

    RE-EDITED - PLEASE READ:

    Regarding my recommendation of EDTA Chelation for atherosclerosis, you may be better-off skipping that and just taking the Colloidal Silver, one ounce-per-day for a month, like mouthwash (swishing it around in your mouth for 30 seconds or so, and spitting it out or swallowing it).

    Also, make sure you're getting 2,000IU of Vitamin D per day, so the body can manipulate the calcium as it sees fit.

    The problem with EDTA Chelation is that the calcium part of the plaque is apparently structural, i.e., to prevent the plaque from rupturing, which can cause a blood clot that could lead to a stroke or heart attack.

    If you are concerned about the possibility of having a heart attack, this is my recommendation: If you can find it, your best bet is to make a pill containing 12mg of Sodium Nitrite and Pure Vitamin C as a filler, and keeping it handy (like your Nitro pill), and at the first symptoms of a heart attack, take it after the Nitro and after calling 911. Sodium Nitrite acts to suppress Ischemic Reperfusion damage, which ironically kills the ischemic tissues *after* normal blood flow is re-established, and Vitamin C is apparently pretty good at reversing platelets sticking together, which is what causes blood clots in the first place. ( http://to.ly/8ldc )

    Don't take my word for it, I learned about Sodium Nitrite from an NIH paper on US-Funded Research: http://www.nih.gov/news/pr/apr2005/nhlbi-14.htm .

    Finally, my tax dollars doing something that actually provides real benefit! (They probably fired the researcher when they figured-out what the paper meant.)
