Psoriasis Arthritis
Definition
By Mayo Clinic Staff

Psoriatic arthritis is a form of arthritis that affects some people who have psoriasis — a condition that features red patches of skin topped with silvery scales. Most people develop psoriasis first and are later diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, but the joint problems can sometimes begin before skin lesions appear.

Joint pain, stiffness and swelling are the main symptoms of psoriatic arthritis. They can affect any part of your body, including your fingertips and spine, and can range from relatively mild to severe. In both psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, disease flares may alternate with periods of remission.

No cure for psoriatic arthritis exists, so the focus is on controlling symptoms and preventing damage to your joints. Without treatment, psoriatic arthritis may be disabling.

Psoriasis is a common skin condition affecting 2% of the Caucasian population in the United States. It features patchy, raised, red areas of skin inflammation with scaling. Psoriasis often affects the tips of the elbows and knees, the scalp and ears, the navel, and around the genital areas or anus. Approximately 10%-15% of patients who have psoriasis also develop an associated inflammation of their joints. Patients who have inflammatory arthritis and psoriasis are diagnosed as having psoriatic arthritis.
...
Psoriatic arthritis is a systemic rheumatic disease that also can cause inflammation in body tissues away from the joints other than the skin, such as in the eyes, heart, lungs, and kidneys
...
Is there a psoriatic arthritis diet? Are there home remedies for psoriatic arthritis?

It has been shown that vitamin D might improve the arthritis of psoriatic arthritis. Research has shown this to be a helpful dietary modification. There is no other universally effective diet, or foods to avoid, for psoriatic arthritis. There are also no dependable home remedies for psoriatic arthritis. However, vitamin D supplementation may be beneficial for both the skin and joints. In Europe, people have bathed in the Dead Sea for psoriasis treatment [ magnesium? ]

The Burden of Psoriatic Arthritis
2010 Dec
A Literature Review from a Global Health Systems Perspective
Seina Lee, PharmD, MS, Alan Mendelsohn, MD, and Evelyn Sarnes, PharmD, MPH

INTRODUCTION

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic, progressive, inflammatory arthropathy associated with psoriasis. The prevalence of PsA in patients with psoriasis ranges from 6% to 39% and is equally likely to occur in males and females.1,2 The overall prevalence of PsA in the U.S. ranges from 101 to 250 per 100,000 people, with an annual incidence reported at 6.6 out of every 100,000 people.3 The prevalence of PsA has been historically difficult to determine, partly because of the lack of a widely accepted classification or diagnostic criteria and partly because experts often misdiagnose the condition. The original diagnostic criteria of Moll and Wright (1973) are the simplest and the most frequently used.

Patients with PsA are usually affected with psoriasis before signs of joint disease have developed; the mean time to onset of PsA is 10 years after the first signs of psoriasis appear.4 PsA can be distinguished from other inflammatory arthritic diseases by its clinical and radiographic features. In general, PsA affects fewer joints than rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and it often has an asymmetrical distribution of the affected joints rather than the symmetrical pattern seen in RA.4 By definition, all patients with PsA have psoriasis, which may be present for many years.5 Skin involvement can occur anywhere on the body, but most often the scalp, nails, trunk, elbows, and knees are affected.6 Other common clinical features of PsA that are not seen in RA or ankylosing spondylitis (AS) include dactylitis and nail disease.7
....

Clinical Features

The course of PsA can be variable and unpredictable, ranging from mild and nondestructive disease to erosive and deforming arthritis, seen in 40% to 60% of PsA patients.16 Untreated patients may have persistent inflammation, progressive joint damage, severe physical limitations, disability, and increased mortality.16 In a prospective cohort of 100 patients with PsA who were observed for approximately five years (mean duration, 11 years), joint damage progressed at a median of 0.42 peripheral joints per year.17 Flares and remissions frequently occur; more than half of patients with PsA have had at least one flare over two years.10

The burden of physical disability is substantial in patients with PsA. The HAQ Disability Index (HAQ–DI) is commonly used to assess physical function in PsA. A score of 0 to 1 represents mild to moderate disability, 1 to 2 represents moderate-to-severe disability, and 2 to 3 represents severe to very severe disability.18 Physical function generally worsens as the number of inflamed joints and disease activity increases.19

Progression of disability may follow three patterns: stable state of disability, steady improvement or worsening in HAQ scores, or fluctuating periods of disability. Predictors of change in the HAQ include age, sex, disease duration, and the number of actively inflamed and deformed joints.19,20 As shown in Table 2, although mean HAQ scores are generally lower for patients with PsA than those with RA, pain scores are generally comparable.

...

CONCLUSION

For many patients, psoriatic arthritis encompasses not only joint disease but also psoriasis. Our literature review reveals that the emotional toll of the disease can be higher than that of other arthritic conditions. Similar to the other inflammatory rheumatic conditions, PsA is progressive, erosive, and destructive, resulting in diminished functional capacity and poor quality of life. Patients with PsA may also have an increased risk of comorbid conditions, especially cardiovascular disease, compared with the general population.

PsA imposes a substantial economic burden to patients and society. The clinical burden of PsA contributes to direct medical costs. Indirect costs, including lost productivity and disability caused by limitations in functioning and activities of daily living also contribute to the total costs of PsA.

Mycoplasmas – The Missing Link in Fatiguing Illnesses
By Michael Guthrie, R.Ph. • www.ProHealth.com • July 18, 2001

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. Reproduced with the kind permission of Alternative Medicine magazine, September, 2001 (#43). For subscription information call 800-333-HEAL (4325). Website: www.alternativemedicine.com

Michael Guthrie R.Ph, is a clinical pharmacist with hospital, business and residential experience, who researches scientifically validated integrative medical approaches.

These mysterious microorganisms can play a major role in a wide range of diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia syndromes, multiple sclerosis, Gulf War illness, Crohn’s disease and other inflammatory bowel diseases, diabetes and even aggressive cancers. Without proper diagnosis and treatment of mycoplasma infections, curing these conditions can be difficult or impossible.

Staff Sergeant Sharron Nicolson, Crew Chief of an Army Blackhawk helicopter, was happy to see everyone return safely from their last deep mission into Iraqi territory. She and her unit would soon join the thousands of U.S. military personnel headed home from the Gulf War, and Sharron was looking forward to finishing her pilot training. But shortly after returning to the U.S. in 1991, Sharron began experiencing constant fatigue, muscle and joint pain and other debilitating symptoms similar to those associated with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). She found it impossible to meet the demands of flight school and sadly realized her dream of a flying career was over.

When routine medical tests revealed no answers, Sharron started looking for more help. At the time, she was unaware that over 50,000 soldiers had returned from the Gulf War with similar symptoms. (this number has now grown to over 100,000.) Fortunately, Sharron had the advantage of being the daughter of two top researchers in molecular and cellular biology: Drs Garth L. and Nancy L. Nicolson.

At the time of Sharron’s return home in the early 1990s, Garth Nicolson, Ph.D., was an esteemed researcher and academic, holding the David Bruton, Jr. Chair in Cancer Research at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Center. Nancy Nicolson, Ph.D., a former instructor in the Department of Immunology and Microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine, was also a world-renowned molecular biologist. The Nicolsons were compelled into action on behalf of their daughter and other veterans whose disabling symptoms were being misdiagnosed as post-traumatic stress disorder and/or other conditions.

The Nicolsons realized that Sharron was experiencing similar symptoms to what Nancy had experienced years earlier. The cause of Nancy’s pain and fatigue had finally been diagnosed as an infection of invasive mycoplasmas. The Nicolsons knew these little-known microscopic masters of hide-and-seek were generally responsive to certain antibiotics. They put Sharron on a course of doxycycline antibiotic therapy and she dramatically improved.

Word spread and members of other Airborne and Special Force Units who had similar symptoms began asking for assistance. The Nicolsons, anxious to help, began researching what became known as Gulf War Illness (GWI). It did not take long for them to realize that there was a significant overlap in the symptoms of GWI, CFS and FMS and other conditions that fall under the umbrella term of ‘fatiguing illnesses.’


Mysterious parasites

Mycoplasmas are the smallest self-replicating organisms known to science. Viruses are even smaller, but they lack the genetic machinery to self-replicate. There are hundreds of types of mycoplasmas that can be found in plants, insects and animals, but only a few can be found in the blood and tissues throughout the human body. Not all mycoplasmas found in humans are pathogenic (disease-causing).

Mycoplasmas have some of the simplest genomes among bacteria. The best known pathogenic mycoplasma, M. pneumoniae, the cause of ‘walking pneumonia,’ contains only 677 protein-coding sequences (by comparison, E. coli contains about 4,000). Mycopasmas do not contain the genes needed for amino and fatty acid or vitamin synthesis; thus, they need to steal certain amino acids, fats, vitamins and other nutrients from host cells in order to survive. Simply put, they are parasitic bacteria. Garth Nicolson explains, “Once in the cell, they steal lipids (fats) like cholesterol from the mitochondria, the components of a cell that produces energy. This makes the mitochondria ‘leaky,’ and they lose electrons. This is similar to a battery running down when the insulation around the battery is removed. This may be why patients with intracellular pathogenic mycoplasmas are almost always fatigued. They have run their cellular batteries down, so that less high energy molecules are available, and they are exhausted at the cellular level.”

Immune Disruption

Mycoplasmas can also disrupt the normal orchestration and organization of the host’s immune system. They can cause lymphocytes (white blood cells that bear the major responsibility of the immune system) to secrete inflammatory cytokines (proteins that facilitate cell-to-cell communication), which leads to swelling, inflammation and either stimulation or suppression of the immune system.

Because pathogenic mycoplasmas leaving a cell they have infected can incorporate much of the host’s cell surface material into their own surface structure, they can instigate an autoimmune response in which the immune system starts attacking the host’s own cells, a process that can result in severe tissue damage and pain.
...
How Mycoplasmas Operate

Mycoplasmas are well equipped to play biological sleight-of-hand, appearing then disappearing, changing shape, shuffling their surface components, ducking into cells, then parading as normal citizens of the human flora dressed in clothes stolen from the cells they invaded. They’re elusive because they are pleomorphic (structurally changing). They do not have rigid cell walls like most bacteria; instead they possess fluid lipid (water insoluble fate) outer surfaces, and like tiny jellyfish, they can squeeze, bend and move into tight spaces. They can also slide right through laboratory and hospital filters used to produce or maintain sterility – making them one of the most common contaminants in diagnostic laboratories and vaccine manufacturing. In one recent study of vaccines, mycoplasmas were found to contaminate about six percent of commercial vaccines.
...
Detecting Mycoplasmas
...

Eventually, the Nicolsons developed a new PCR test based on techniques used by forensic pathologists to test for DNA from crime scenes. This test revealed that over 40% of the GWI patients were positive for “invasive” mycoplasma (not mycoplasma in superficial sites such as nose, throat and genitourinary tract).

The Nicolsons found mycoplasmas, especially M. fermentans, inside tissues and in certain white blood cells – the very cells that are normally involved in the destruction of pathogenic invaders. “Mycoplasmas are not found systemically in most normal subjects – only a few percent of asymptomatic subjects have evidence of mycoplasma in their blood. I don’t consider oral mycoplasma, or mycoplasma at other superficial sites to be evidence of an infection. It is more likely simple bacterial colonization, and unless these mycoplasma invade the epithelial cell layer (a thin layer of tissue that covers a surface or lines a cavity), they are probably benign nonpathogenic residents,’ explains Nicolson.
...

The researchers’ results were significant and published in several journals. Other investigators, especially those working with Gulf War Vets, were able to duplicate the results, but the Nicolson’s work was largely dismissed or ignored by the Department of Defense.

...
A study conducted independently for the U.S. Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs demonstrated that approximately 40% of more than 1,600 GWI patients were positive for mycoplasma infections, and 80% of those were positive for M. fermentans. Lt. Col. Engel also stated that he felt that these infections might also be an important cause of CFS. The study findings nearly duplicated the figures that the Nicolsons had reported earlier: 45% positive for mycoplasma; 80% with M. fermentans.
...

Current Mycoplasma Research


Recently, Dr. Nicolson has focused on various autoimmune neurological diseases such as ALS, MS, Lyme disease and others. For example, approximately 85% of patients with ALS (“Lou Gehrig’s disease”) tested positive for systemic mycoplasma infections, and most of those infections involve M. fermentans and/or M. hominis.

Dr. Nicolson is working closely with Drs. See and Akbarpour on ALS, a condition in which patients lose control of their motor and skeletal muscles over a period of two to five years. Their research revealed that almost all ALS patients have co-infections with a virus from the enterovirus family (a virus related to the polio virus that replicated mostly in the gastrointestinal tract) – and mycoplasmas. The three doctors have been conducting a clinical treatment study of ALS utilizing antibiotics, antivirals and nerve growth factors. They are seeing positive results so far, as measured by increases in muscle strength.

Other illnesses often have multiple strains of mycoplasmas, or mycoplasmas combined with co-infections of other bacteria or viruses. “In recent published studies from our laboratory, most CFS and FMS patients had multiple mycoplasmal infections. The number of different mycoplasmal species in these patients increased with the number of years the patients were sick and with the severity of their illness,” says Dr. Nicolson.

“We have found that when the few asymptomatic subjects have blood mycoplasmal infections, they have only one species, versus when we examine patients who are sick with various chronic illnesses, they usually have multiple species of mycoplasmas and other infections such as the cytomegalovirus. In Lyme disease, we often find mycoplasmal co-infections, most frequently, M. fermentans, along with the Borrelia that causes it. This makes sense when you consider that insects, such as the ticks that carry the Borrelia, also can carry mycoplasmas. Dr. Eli Mordechai of Medical Diagnostics Lab of New Jersey has exactly the same findings in Lyme disease patients.”

All the researchers above agree that long-term antibiotics must be initiated to treat mycoplasmal infections. Additional strategies must be applied to protect and strengthen the immune system and provide essential nutrients and vitamins.

“We always try to use the least toxic approaches in working with pathologies, so we use a lot of natural products,” Dr. See says. For example, probiotics and undenatured whey protein isolates are used to support the GI tract – a combination that helps prevent overgrowth of undesirable microorganisms. “However,” adds Dr. See, “in our experience, and in the literature, we have found non other way to deal with mycoplasmas than fairly long-term treatment with certain antibiotics.” Fortunately, the Nicolsons and their colleagues have succeeded in helping many veterans and others infected with mycoplasmas, but controversies surrounding their work and these mysterious microorganisms still persist.

Says Dr. Nicolson, “Future efforts to explain and treat a variety of illnesses that currently have unknown etiologies (causes) will undoubtedly focus more on chronic infections as underlying causes or as opportunistic infections in immune-impaired patients. We have found that chronic infections caused by mycoplasmas, viruses and other microorganisms cannot be ignored, because these patients will remain ill and not recover from their illnesses if these infections remain untreated.

...

The Mycoplasma fermentans (incognitus strain) probably comes from the nucleus of the brucellosis bacteria. This disease agent is not a bacteria, and not a virus; it is a mutated form of the brucellosis bacteria, mutated with a visna virus, from which the mycoplasma, is extracted. Dr. Maurice Hilleman, chief virologist for the pharmaceutical company of Merck, Sharp and Dohme, stated that this disease agent is now carried by everybody in North America and possibly most people throughout the world.

The mycoplasma used to be very innocuous. Only one person out of 500,000 would get multiple sclerosis; one out of 300,000 would develop Alzheimer's; one out of 1,000,000 would develop Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Before the early 1980's, nobody ever died of AIDS because it didn't exist. The mycoplasma is also the disease agent in AIDS, and I have all the documentation to prove it.   
   

BIOWARFARE RESEARCH Between 1942 and the present time, biological warfare research has resulted in a more deadly and infectious form of the mycoplasma. They extracted this mycoplasma from the brucellosis bacteria, weaponized it and actually reduced the disease to a crystalline form. According to Dr. Shyh-Ching Lo, one of America's top, top researchers, this disease agent, the mycoplasma, causes among other things, AIDS, chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis, Wegener's disease, Parkinson's disease, Crohn's colitis, Type I diabetes, and collagen-vascular diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and Alzheimer's. The mycoplasma enters into the individual cells of the body depending upon your genetic predisposition. You may develop neurological diseases if the pathogen destroys certain cells in your brain, or you may develop Crohn's colitis if the pathogen invades and destroys cells in the lower bowel. Once it gets into the cell, it can lie there doing nothing sometimes for 10, 20 or 30 years, but if a trauma occurs like an accident, or a vaccination that doesn't take, the mycoplasma can become triggered.

Because it is only the DNA particle of the bacteria, it doesn't have any organelles to process its own nutrients, so it grows by uptaking preformed sterols from its host cell, literally kills the cell, and the cell ruptures and what is left gets dumped into the blood stream.   
 

DOCUMENTED EVIDENCE My conclusions are entirely based upon official documents: 80% are United States or Canadian official government documents, and 20% are articles from peer-reviewed journals, such as the Journal of the American Medical Association, The New England Journal of Medicine, and The Canadian Medical Association Journal. The journal articles and government documents complement each other. We also have a document from Dr. Shyh-Ching Lo which names the mycoplasma as a cause of cancer. Dr. Charles Engel who is with the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland, stated at an NIH meeting on February 7, 2000, "I am now of the view that the probable cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and fibromyalgia is the mycoplasma".   

 II - Creation of the Mycoplasma Patent

Many doctors don't know about this mycoplasma because it was developed by the U.S. military in biological warfare experimentation, and it was not made public. This pathogenic mycoplasma disease agent was patented by the United States military by Dr. Shyh-Ching Lo, who was the top researcher for the military biological warfare research facility.

I have the documented patent from the U.S. patent office.  A LABORATORY-CREATED PATHOGEN BY THE U.S. MILITARY Researchers in the United States, Canada and Britain were doing biowarfare research with the brucellosis bacteria as well as with a number of other disease agents. From its inception, the biowarfare program was characterized by continuing in-depth review and participation by the most eminent scientists, medical consultants, industrial experts and government officials, and it was top secret. The U.S. Public Health Service also closely followed the progress of biological warfare research and development from the very start of the program, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United States were working with the military in weaponizing these diseases. These are diseases which have existed for thousands of years, but they have been weaponized which means they were made more contagious and more effective. And they are spreading. A program developed by the CIA and NIH to develop a deadly lethal pathogen for which humanity had no natural immunity (AIDS) was disguised as a war on cancer and was part of MKNAOMI (ref. Special Virus Cancer Program: Progress Report 8, prepared by National Cancer Institute, Viral Oncology, Etiology Area, July, 1971 and submitted to NIH Annual Report in May, 1971 and updated July, 1971).   
   
...
 

CRYSTALLINE BRUCELLOSIS In a genuine U.S. Senate Study unclassified on February 24, 1977, the title page of this government record reports that George Merck, of the pharmaceutical company, Merck, Sharp and Dohme (which now makes cures for diseases they at one time created), in 1946, reported to the Secretary of War in the United States that his researchers had produced in isolation for the first time, a crystalline bacterial toxin extracted from brucellosis bacteria. The bacterial toxin could be removed in crystalline form and delivered by other vectors (in nature they are delivered within the bacteria). But the factor that is working in the brucellosis is the mycoplasma. Brucellosis is a disease agent that doesn't kill people; it disables them. But they found that if they had mycoplasma at a certain strength, actually ten to the tenth power, it would develop into AIDS, and the person would die from it within a reasonable period of time because it could bypass our natural human defences. If it was 108, the person would manifest with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia. If it was 107, they would present as wasting; they wouldn't die, and they wouldn't be disabled, but they would not be that interested in life, they would waste away (ref. Dr. Donald MacArthur of the Pentagon appearing before a Congressional Committee, June 9, 1969, Department of Defence Appropriations, p.114, 129). Most of us have never heard of brucellosis because it largely disappeared when they began pasteurizing milk, which was the carrier. One salt shaker of this pure disease in a crystalline form could sicken the entire population of Canada. It is absolutely deadly, not in terms of killing the body, but in terms of disabling the body. The advantage of this crystalline disease agent is that it does not show up in blood and tissue tests because the bacteria has disappeared and only the pure disease agent remains. So the doctor thinks that it's all in your head.   

     

CRYSTALLINE BRUCELLOSIS AND MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS About three years ago in Rochester, New York, a gentleman gave me a document and told me, "I was in the U.S. Army, and I was trained in bacteriological warfare. We were handling a bomb filled with brucellosis, only it wasn't brucellosis; it was a brucellosis toxin in crystalline form. We were spraying it on the Chinese and North Koreans." He showed me his certificate listing his training in chemical, biological, and radiological warfare. Then he showed me 16 pages of documents given to him by the U.S. military when he was discharged from the service. It linked brucellosis with multiple sclerosis and stated: "Veterans with multiple sclerosis, a kind of creeping paralysis developing to a degree of 10% or more disability within two years after separation from active service may be presumed to be service-connected for disability compensation. Compensation is payable to eligible veterans whose disabilities are due to service." In other words, "If you become ill with multiple sclerosis, it is because you were handling this brucellosis and we will give you a pension. Don't go raising any fuss about it." The government of the United States, in this official document revealed evidence of the cause of multiple sclerosis, but they didn't make it known to the public, or to your doctor. In a 1958 report, Drs. Kyger and Haden suggest "…the possibility that multiple sclerosis might be a central nervous system manifestation of chronic brucellosis". Testing approximately 113 MS patients, they found that almost 95% also tested positive for brucellosis. We have a document from a medical journal which concludes that one out of 500 people who had brucellosis would develop what they called neurobrucellosis, in other words, brucellosis in the brain which settles in the lateral ventricles where the disease multiple sclerosis is basically located.   

     

CONTAMINATION OF CAMP DETRICK LAB WORKERS A report from the New England Journal of Medicine, 1948, Vol.236, p.741 called "Acute Brucellosis Among Laboratory Workers" shows us how actively dangerous this agent is. The laboratory workers were from Camp Detrick, Frederick, Maryland where they were developing biological weapons. Even though these laboratory workers had been vaccinated, wore rubberized suits and masks, and worked through holes in the compartment, many of them came down with this awful disease because it is so absolutely and terrifyingly infectious. The article was written by Lt. Calderone Howell, Marine Corps, Captain Edward Miller, Marine Corps, Lt. Emily Kelly, United States Naval Reserve and Captain Henry Bookman. They were all military personnel engaged in making the disease agent brucellosis into a more effective biological weapon.   

III - Covert Testing of the Mycoplasma Testing Brucellis upon an Unsuspecting Public

 

Documented evidence proves that the biological weapons they were developing were tested on the public in various communities without their knowledge or consent. The government knew that crystalline brucellosis would cause disease in humans. Now they needed to determine how it spread, and the best way to disperse it. They tested dispersal methods for Brucella suis and Brucella melitensis at Dugway Proving Ground, Utah, June and September 1952. Probably, 100% of us now are infected with Brucella suis and Brucella melitensis. (ref. p.135, table 4 of Special Virus Cancer Program: Progress Report 8) . Another government document recommended the genesis of open air vulnerability tests, and covert research and development programs to be conducted by the army and supported by the Central Intelligence Agency. At that time, the government of Canada was asked by the government of the United States to cooperate in testing weaponized brucellosis, and Canada cooperated fully with the government of the United States. They wanted to determine (i) if mosquitoes will carry the disease and (ii) if the air will carry it. A government report stated that "…open air testing of infectious biological agents is considered essential to an ultimate understanding of biological warfare potentialities because of the many unknown factors affecting the degradation of micro-organisms in the atmosphere".

Colloidal Silver Treatments?

http://www.colloidalresearch.com/TEXT_REPORTS___ARTICLES.html
Benefits of Colloidal Silver

Silver is a powerful, natural prophylactic/antibiotic, used for thousands of years. Ancient Greeks lined their eating and drinking vessels with silver, as did many other cultures throughout the world. Pioneers of the American West would put a silver dollar in a jug of milk to keep it fresh without refrigeration. Did you ever wonder why silverware was made from silver? One of the properties of silver is that it kills bacteria on contact in six minutes or less. It may be that gold and silver were first used as valued currency because of their medical properties.

It was rediscovered in the 1990’s that there was a correlation between low silver levels and sickness. Silver deficiency is responsible for the improper functioning of the immune system. Experiments at that time conclude that silver works on the full spectrum of pathogens without any side effects or damage to the body. It is also said that silver does more than kill disease-causing organisms; it also causes major growth stimulation of injured tissues. Burn patients and even elderly patients notice more rapid healing with silver application. It was discovered that all strains of pathogens resistant to other antibiotics are killed by silver, even cancer cells back to normal!

What is Colloidal Silver?... Colloidal Silver is the result of an electro-magnetic process that pulls microscopic particles from a larger piece of silver into a liquid, such as water. As tiny particles, the silver can more easily penetrate and travel throughout the body. Unlike with antibiotics, resistant strains have never been known to develop. In fact, antibiotics are only effective against perhaps a dozen forms of bacteria and fungi, but never viruses. Because no known disease-causing organism can live in the presence of silver, Colloidal Silver is effective against more than 650 different disease-causing pathogens.
...

The Forgotten Antibiotic
 In the meantime, technology has come to the rescue of the forgotten colloidal silver (CS). Instead of grinding up the silver into hard to use large particles like they did in the pre-war period, scientists found they could use electricity to break down the particles to as small as 1/10,000th of an inch much smaller than you can see with the naked eye. Also, the electricity gave the tiny particle identical electric charges, which causes them to repel each other. This means no more clumping, and a shelf life of up to five years. This new silver is called "Electrically Generated Colloidal Silver'" or EGCS. EGCS can now be taken orally or sprayed on a wound, burn or rash, and no shots are necessary. Also, the dosage costs dropped from $400 to as little as 25 cents each.


...
Our Mightiest Germ Fighte
r
 In 1978, Dr. Jim Powell wrote an article in Science Digest entitled, "Our Mightiest Germ Fighter," pointing out how much more powerful EGCS was over antibiotics. The greatest progress EGCS has made in the last decade is the result of a prominent doctor getting a seemingly incurable disease. That doctor, Paul Farber, is one of the most educated medical scientists in the country holding seven degrees in various health fields.

Famous Doctor Paralyzed
 In 1992 after a hiking trip in Texas, Dr. Farber found he couldn't get out of bed. He was paralyzed from the chest down. Also, he was in excruciating pain with many of his joints severely swollen. Overnight, The middle-aged doctor was like a crippled 90-year-old who had been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis for decades. His condition puzzled specialist after specialist. Their guesses ranged from multiple sclerosis to the rare Guillain-Barre' syndrome a multiple neuritis type of affliction.

Discovers Tick
 Confined to his bed only able to move his arms and head, one day Dr. Farber felt a tiny lump in the scalp above his forehead. He suspected a tick was imbedded there. He careful removed the tick and sent it to Dr. Thomas Craig, a professor of veterinary medicine at Texas A & M University. After examining the tick, Dr Craig suggested that Dr, Farber had Lyme Disease, which is caused by this type of tick.

Dangerous Lyme Disease
 Blood tests confirmed it was the terrible Lyme Disease (LD), which is named after a small town in Connecticut where an outbreak crippled over 50 people in 1972. Antibiotics, such as penicillin and Rocephin, are the first line of defense against LD, but they are not cures because they only repress the disease.

Rollercoaster Illness
Continuous use of the antibiotics caused a severe form of yeast infection. The drugs have to be stopped until the yeast infection clears up, but shortly after the drugs are withdrawn, the horrible LD symptoms return, and the whole process starts over again a not very enjoyable rollercoaster ride. During the high times of his rollercoaster ride, Dr. Farber searched medical literature for something that could possibly destroy the awful bacteria that was making his life so miserable.

Dead Sea Scrolls of Medicine
 Dr. Farber found what he calls "the Dead Sea Scrolls of Medicine" in early 1900s research on colloidal silver. Dr. Crookes' comments about it killing any microbe in six minutes got his attention. Then he found doctors Moyer, Bretano and Margarf's research and development of EGCS.

EGCS Stops LD
 He immediately began taking EGCS. The results were nothing short of spectacular. Within a short time, tests at the Neurological Department of Parkland Hospital in Texas showed that the bacteria was no longer in his body. Clinical research has since shown that the LD bacteria simply hides from the antibiotics; however, recent testing at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia proved that EGCS does destroy the LD bacteria. Because EGCS literally saved his life, Dr. Farber has devoted the last few years experimenting with its powerful effects. He wrote a book entitled, The Micro Silver Bullet, and regularly treats patients at his clinic with silver.

Gulf War Syndrome
 One of the most interesting cases was a man named Jack, who worked for a private construction company in Kuwait during the Gulf War. Shortly after returning to the United States, Jack developed aching joints, insomnia, persistent high fevers, loss of balance and a total lack of energy, He couldn't work, and even the famous Mayo Clinic couldn't determine the cause of his affliction.

 Nothing Helped… He saw specialist after specialist, from heart to cancer, but none could pinpoint the cause of his problems. Typical of cut-happy surgeons, they took out his gallbladder, and then they took his spleen. Nothing helped.

EGCS Solved Problems
 Finally, Jack heard about Dr. Farber and visited him. The doctor put Jack on EGCS for eight weeks. Soon, Jack was back working ten hours a day, six days a week like nothing had ever happened.

...
Psoriasis And Joint Pain

 Psoriasis is another skin disorder that doctors find most difficult to subdue because it just seems to come back regularly with annoying itching and scaly skin. A patient of Dr. Farber's named Susan from Glassport, Pennsylvania, suffered from psoriasis and joint pain called fibromyalgia. Doctors had tried everything from antibiotics to methotrexate (a form of chemotherapy) with no luck. In fact, most of the drugs made Susan feel worse. After three months of using EGCS, the joint pain was completely gone, and 90% of her psoriasis symptoms had disappeared.

Vitamin D as Therapy:  (Toxic level 10,000 IU)   

http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/759112_4
The British Journal of Dermatology

Vitamin D Status in Patients With Chronic Plaque Psoriasis
P. Gisondi; M. Rossini; A. Di Cesare; L. Idolazzi; S. Farina, G. Beltrami; K. Peris; G. Girolomoni
The British Journal of Dermatology. 2012;166(3):505-510.

Discussion

The major finding of this study is that vitamin D deficiency is very frequent in patients with chronic plaque psoriasis and in those with PsA. This finding was more common (i.e. 80% of cases) in winter, but it was found also in summer in approximately 50% of patients.

The association between vitamin D insufficiency and psoriasis was confirmed independently of age, sex, BMI, PASI score, PTH and the season in which the serum sample was taken. We found also a higher prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in patients with RA, as already reported.[15]

The finding of vitamin D deficiency in patients with psoriasis could be relevant for several reasons. Firstly, it has been clearly established that vitamin D deficiency is a risk factor for osteoporosis and increases the risk of falling in the elderly.[16] An increased risk of male patients with psoriasis developing osteoporosis has been addressed in a large population-based case–control study conducted in Israel.[17]

Secondly, observational studies in large cohorts have shown significant associations between low levels of 25(OH)D and increased risk of diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular mortality.[18,19] Similarly, psoriasis is frequently associated with cardiometabolic comorbidities and with an increased cardiovascular mortality.[20–22]

Moreover, low levels of vitamin D may also have important implications in the pathogenesis of psoriasis.

Vitamin D3 acts mainly on the vitamin D receptor to regulate keratinocyte growth and differentiation, but also has an influence on immune functions of dendritic cells and T lymphocytes.[23,24] Vitamin D3 inhibits production of interleukin (IL)-2 and IL-6, blocks transcription of interferon-γ and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor mRNA, and inhibits cytotoxic T cells and natural killer cell activity.[25]

Topical vitamin D derivatives, including calcipotriol (calcipotriene) and calcitriol, have immunomodulatory effects on monocytes, macrophages, T cells and dendritic cells.[26] Indeed, topical vitamin D derivatives are extensively used as monotherapy or in combination with steroids for the topical treatment of psoriasis.[27]

Moreover, phototherapy increases the levels of serum 25(OH)D in patients with psoriasis and it has been proposed that narrowband ultraviolet (UV) B radiation may mediate its beneficial effect on psoriasis also by increasing endogenous vitamin D levels.[28]

That oral supplementation with vitamin D could be effective in the treatment of psoriasis was suggested some years ago.[29,30]

Furthermore, the recent finding of a resolution of adalimumab-induced psoriasis in a woman with RA after the use of high vitamin D doses for the treatment of vitamin D deficiency raises the interesting question on the possible use of vitamin D in the treatment of psoriasis.[31] However, it is clear that more definitive evidence is required to demonstrate that a serum level of 25(OH)D < 20 ng mL−1 in psoriasis is pathologically low, and that clinical benefit would be gained from vitamin D supplementation.
 
Several conditions may contribute to low serum levels of vitamin D in the general population, including poor dietary intake of vitamin D; sun avoidance and/or negligible sun exposure, possibly related also to impaired quality of life; malabsorption due to inflammatory bowel disease, gluten enteropathy, gastric surgery, biliary disease, or intestinal bacteria overgrowth; use of antiseizure medications (e.g. phenobarbital or phenytoin) and long-term use of glucocorticoids.[32]

The reason for the higher prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in patients with psoriasis is not clear. However, we can exclude the possibility that this difference was related to different sun exposure between groups. Vitamin D deficiency has been already reported in other chronic immune-mediated inflammatory skin diseases including atopic dermatitis, vitiligo and chronic urticaria.[31–33]

 A possible role of vitamin D deficiency in the development of these conditions has been also proposed.[33–35]

Once detected, vitamin D deficiency could be corrected, although no evidence of the possible benefits of vitamin D supplementation in reducing inflammation and/or the risk of other incident autoimmune diseases has yet been proven.[36] Moreover, optimal dosage regimens for vitamin D remain uncertain.

In general, for every 100 IU of vitamin D taken in, there is an increase of roughly 1 ng mL−1 (3 nmol L−1) in the serum level of 25(OH)D. Most trials assessing the effectiveness of the supplementation of 25(OH)D levels and the risk of fractures and falling have used daily doses of vitamin D between 400 and 1000 IU.[37,38]

Toxicity from vitamin D supplementation is very rare and consists principally of acute hypercalcaemia, which usually results from doses that exceed 10 000 IU per day.[5]

The tolerable upper level of daily vitamin D intake recently set by the Institute of Medicine is 4000 IU.[5]


This study has some limitations. Firstly, the cross-sectional study design does not allow a causal or temporal relationship between vitamin D insufficiency and psoriasis to be established. Prospective studies will be required to resolve these issues. Moreover, we did not assess daily vitamin D intake in foods; however, we excluded from the study patients receiving oral supplementation of vitamin D or drugs that interfere with calcium metabolism. Furthermore, we decided to choose the partners of patients with psoriasis as a control group in order to minimize differences due to different dietary intake of vitamin D. We chose patients with RA who were not matched for sex because the prevalence of RA is significantly higher in women, whereas psoriasis has a similar prevalence in men and women. If we had matched for sex we could have added a selection bias in the study.

In conclusion, vitamin D deficiency may be common in patients with psoriasis, especially in winter time. Therefore, patients could be routinely screened for vitamin D insufficiency for a more comprehensive management.

Psoriasis Is More Than a Superficial Skin Condition

Although psoriasis appears as a skin condition, it is actually an autoimmune disease. Part of the reaction occurs when a type of white blood cell called a T cell mistakenly attacks healthy skin cells.

These overactive T cells then trigger other immune responses that collectively speed up the growth cycle of skin cells, causing them to move to the outermost layer of your skin in a matter of days rather than weeks.
...
Your skin may become so inflamed that it cracks and bleeds. Up to 30 percent of sufferers also develop psoriatic arthritis, which can cause debilitating joint damage.

People with psoriasis are also at an increased risk of numerous other chronic diseases, including eye conditions, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. And then there are the psychological repercussions
...

Vitamin D Is Crucial for Autoimmune Diseases, Including Psoriasis

If you have psoriasis, it is imperative that you have your vitamin D levels tested and maintain levels in the therapeutic range of 50-70 ng/ml year-round. Vitamin D is a potent immune modulator, making it very important for the prevention of autoimmune diseases.
...

If Taking a Vitamin D Supplement, Remember K2 and Magnesium, Too

If you opt for a supplement, be sure to take vitamin D3—not synthetic D2—and take vitamin K2 and magnesium in conjunction with it. Vitamin D is fat-soluble, so taking some form of healthy fat with it will also help optimize absorption. The biological role of vitamin K2 is to help move calcium into the proper areas in your body, and without sufficient amounts, calcium may build up in areas such as your arteries and soft tissues. This can cause calcification that can lead to hardening of your arteries—a side effect previously thought to be caused by vitamin D toxicity. We now know that inappropriate calcification is actually due more to lack of K2 than simply too much vitamin D.

Magnesium is also important, both for the proper function of calcium, and for the activity of vitamin D as it converts vitamin D into its active form. Magnesium also activates enzyme activity that helps your body use the vitamin D. In fact, all enzymes that metabolize vitamin D require magnesium to work.

As with vitamin D and K2, magnesium deficiency is also common, and if you’re lacking in magnesium and take supplemental calcium, you may exacerbate the situation.

Vitamin A, zinc, and boron are other important cofactors that interact with vitamin D. When taking supplements, it can be easy to create lopsided ratios, so getting these nutrients from an organic whole food diet and sensible sun exposure is generally your best bet. Dietary sources of magnesium include sea vegetables, such as kelp, dulse, and nori. Vegetables can also be a good source. As for supplements, magnesium citrate and magnesium threonate are among the best.

Magnesium Deficiency

Magnesium deficiency in humans can be mild or severe, and studies suggest it is more and more common. Reports published by the World Health Organization have estimated that three quarters of Americans do not meet the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of magnesium.1

How serious is this problem? Average magnesium intake in the U.S. has dwindled to less than half what it was a century ago:
In the year 1900: 500 mg per day
Today: 175-225 mg per day2

Magnesium deficiency has far-reaching impacts on health and well-being. Evidence has linked insufficient intake to a variety of conditions and symptoms, from simple irritability to chronic pain to life-threatening disease.

Statistics on Magnesium Deficiency

With the current U.S. adult RDA of magnesium of 320-420 mg per day3 , the average American’s intake is only slightly more than half the minimum amount of magnesium required to function effectively.2  In fact, even this drastic figure may be an understatement. Many medical researchers find the RDA figures inadequate to prevent deficiencies of magnesium and chronic disease.4

For example, The Real Vitamin & Mineral Book, a bestseller now in its fourth edition, establishes ODI, “Optimal Daily Intake” amounts — amounts necessary not just to prevent overt deficiency but to maintain optimal health and prevent disease.

Based on the authors’ thorough reviews of the scientific and medical literature and their work in clinical nutrition, the ODI for magnesium was set at 500-750 mg for men and women, nearly double the current RDA
.5  Interestingly, these amounts are closer to the amounts commonly consumed before mass agricultural and food processing practices were taken up in the West.

By these estimations, modern deficiencies are both far more common and far more severe.

Other Western countries today exhibit similar deficiencies. In France, a study found that over 70% of men and nearly 80% of women were magnesium-deficient in their diets.6

In Finland, authorities were so convinced of the impact of magnesium deficiency on heart health that its government instituted a nationwide campaign to increase magnesium intake through magnesium salt substitutes. Finland’s death rates due to heart-related issues fell from number one in the world to down to 10th.7

Epsom Salt Uses & Benefits

What is Epsom salt?

Epsom salt, named for a bitter saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England, is not actually salt but a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate. Long known as a natural remedy for a number of ailments, Epsom salt has numerous health benefits as well as many beauty, household and gardening-related uses.

Studies have shown that magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed through the skin, making Epsom salt baths an easy and ideal way to enjoy the amazing health benefits (*1).

Magnesium plays a number of roles in the body including regulating the activity of over 325 enzymes, reducing inflammation, helping muscle and nerve function and helping to prevent artery hardening.

Sulfates help improve the absorption of nutrients, flush toxins and help ease migraine headaches.

...

One of the simplest ways to ease stress and stress-related problems is to soak in a tub full of hot water with a few cups of Epsom Salt.
...
Eliminates toxins from the body

The sulfates in Epsom salt help flush toxins and heavy metals from the cells
, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances. Your skin is a highly porous membrane and adding the right minerals to your bathwater triggers a process called reverse osmosis, which actually pulls salt out of your body, and harmful toxins along with it. For a detoxifying bath, at least once weekly add two cups of  Epsom Salt to the water in a bathtub and soak for 10 minutes.

Cod Liver Oil for Vit. A and Vit D plus Omega-3's:

Q:
I have psoratic arthritus. I have been taking Vital Cod liver oil capsules for 2 yrs now. I am confused with information i read on the internet. Please tell me how many capsules i must take to be rid of the inflammation. How much of Omega 3 do i need daily for results.

A:

I can totally understand your confusion – there is a great deal out there, not all of it reliable.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a whole lot of research about this as yet so it’s hard to say exactly how much you’d need. The Cod liver oil is a source of omega 3s, as well as vitamins A & D, but you’d still need extra omega 3s. The vitamins A & D should also be helpful by supporting the immune system (psoriasis of any kind being an autoimmune condition). I’d say 2 cod liver oils capsules and at least 1 omega-3 1000mg capsule daily would be needed. You can stick with your Multitime Over 45s.

Psoriasis (including the psoriatic arthritis type) is, unfortunately, a pretty complex condition so the best thing to do would actually be to consult a trained, registered phytotherapist in private practice. They would spend an hour or so with you, go through your whole medical history and work something out specifically for you. Sometimes over-the-counter treatment can become a bit ‘hit & miss’. You can find one by contacting the SA Association of Herbal Practitioners at www.herbalpractitionerssa.co.za .

However, I can advise a few things. Because psoriasis is a systemic condition, it is important to treat it from the inside, as well as finding topical treatments that help against the itching and discomfort, etc (if you have skin irritation too). Unfortunately, psoriasis is pretty challenging to treat but there can be relief and reduction of symptoms – a multifaceted approach is needed as well as great perseverance.

Omega 3 fatty acids: This is definitely an important one, as you know – omega 3s are anti-inflammatory, plus they are healing to the skin. They also help nourish and support the nervous system (I’m sure you’re aware by now that the nervous system, and in particular stress, has a powerful effect on worsening psoriasis). Preliminary evidence indicates that omega 3s can be very helpful for treating conditions like psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis (related to your type of psoriasis in that they are both autoimmune and both inflammatory). Additionally, omega 3s are important for a balanced immune system.

Vitamin B Complex: B vitamins are needed for healthy skin, but also for dealing with stress. Other than stress making psoriasis worse, psoriasis in itself causes a considerable amount of distress, and thus also stress. It’s important to deal with this stress, both by increasing relaxation (such as breathing exercises, exercises in general or other relaxing pastimes) as well as by taking supplements like B vitamins and omega 3s, and eating the correct diet to minimise it. Maxi B 1 capsule daily.

Vitamin C – important for healthy connective tissues and the immune system. It helps to eat vitamin C-rich foods, like peppers, broccoli, guavas, citrus fruits, and take a supplement like Vital Maxi C.

Drinking stinging nettle tea (health shops) could be helpful as it can help remove toxins from the system, which may be building up causing more inflammation.

Diet

Avoid or eat only in moderation:
Red meat, dairy products, especially processed versions of these foods – they contain arachidonic acid which tends to have an inflammatory effect.
Sugar: also has an inflammatory effect if consumed in high amounts.
Artificial sweeteners – can be inflammatory and are bad for the immune system.
Processed & refined foods (pies, cakes, sweets, etc) – also inflammatory, low in nutrients and high in unhealthy ingredients.
Alcohol – there is a definite link between alcohol consumption and increased psoriasis symptoms.
Smoking – there is also a link established between smoking and psoriasis.
Wheat – some psoriasis sufferers are sensitive to or allergic to wheat, so it can be helpful to try avoiding it for a while to see if symptoms improve.

Include:
Oily fish – rich in omega 3 fatty acids – try tuna, pilchards, salmon, sardines, mackerel,
Seeds, especially flaxseeds (linseeds), sunflower and pumpkin seeds – contain omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, zinc and other minerals
Nuts (unless you’re allergic), especially walnuts and brazil nuts – these are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, and brazil nuts contain selenium, needed for a healthy immune system.
Green and leafy veg, like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, spinach & kale – rich in folate (folic acid) which is needed for healthy skin and nervous system, as well as other important vitamins and minerals.
Wholegrains – contain B vitamins, vitamin E, zinc and fibre.

Vital products are available from Clicks, Dischem, leading pharmacies and supermarkets.

Deadly Mycoplasma in Vaccines - Garth Nicolson_ microbiologist

Biological Warfare - Experiments on the American People
Dr. Garth Nicolson, Institute for Molecular Medicine

3:00 He calls the mycoplasma fermentans an agent because it was developed as a biological warfare agent, and it was modified from a naturally occurring agent in order to be less lethal, more difficult to find, and more capable of infection, and more pathogenic, which is true of all the biological agents.


see (interesting published just before the AIDS outbreak):

Mycoplasmas in diseases of humans.
J E Embree and J A Embil

Abstract

The roles of Mycoplasma pneumoniae, M. hominis and Ureaplasma urealyticum in diseases of humans are currently under investigation.

M. pneumoniae, which causes primary atypical pneumonia, is a well established pathogen of the respiratory tract. Complications of infection by this organism are also being recognized; they include disorders of the hematopoietic, cardiovascular, central nervous, musculoskeletal, cutaneous and gastrointestinal systems.

The roles of the genital mycoplasmas M. hominis and U. urealyticum are controversial but may include infections of the genitourinary tract and in pregnancy as well as diseases of the newborn, such as neonatal pneumonia and meningitis. In this review atypical pneumonia due to M. pneumoniae is described and the role of mycoplasmas in other diseases is discussed.

Mycoplasmas are the smallest known bacteria that can form recognizable colonies on cell-free media.
Their minimum reproductive size, approximately 100 nm, is similar to that of the largest viruses. However, unlike viruses, mycoplasmas possess both deoxyribonucleic acid and ribonucleic acid for replication. They are pleomorphic, lacking a
cell wall, but are not genetically related to the other types of bacteria with complete or partial absence of a cell wall ...

Penicillin's are useless in the treatment of disease caused by these organisms, but tetracycline's are effective.
...

Musculoskeletal system
M. pneumoniae infection is often accompanied by nonspecific arthralgias or myalgias during the acute phase. Occasionally it leads to migratory polyarthropathy affecting middle-sized joints, in which combinations of joint swelling, morning stiffness, "gelling" with stiffness after inactivity and considerable functional disability may occur. Symptoms may last up to a year but will eventually disappear.44'45
...
Cutaneous system

A wide variety of nondistinctive rashes frequently occur with or after infection by M. pneumoniae.
These have been described as "discrete or confluent, pruritic or nonpruritic erythematous macular, maculopapular, urticarial, vesicular, bullous, or petechial lesions. Some of these rashes are scaling, scarlatiniform, pityriasis rosea-like, Henoch-
Sch6nlein purpura or erythema nodosa."9 Reports of the Stevens- Johnson syndrome (severe erythema multiforme) associated
with M. pneumoniae infection have been numerous.'4'48 The exact mechanism by which the rashes are produced is unknown,
but they may be due to increased sensitivity to antibiotics. The rash usually lasts for 7 to 10 days.9

....

Conclusion

As more physicians become aware of mycoplasmas as a possible cause of numerous conditions more information concerning their role will become available.

All the mycoplasmas are susceptible to tetracycline, and M. pneumoniae and U. urealyticum are also susceptible to erythromycin. Therefore recognition and treatment to eliminate these organisms will, in most instances,
significantly shorten the course of the illness and decrease the accompanying disability. At the moment the greatest problem is a
lack of clinical suspicion.

This is interesting ... hardy Mycoplasmas survive in laboratory for days! :

http://www.bionique.com/mycoplasma-resources/faq/mycoplasma-enter-cell-cultures.html
How do mycoplasmas enter my cell cultures?
 
The first step in avoiding mycoplasma contamination is an understanding of the most common sources of infection coupled with a program designed to reduce the risk of exposure to these sources.

...
From other mycoplasma contaminated cell cultures

The main source of mycoplasma infection, in the majority of cases, is cross contamination by a previously mycoplasma-infected cell culture which is used in the same laboratory.  McGarrity (1976) clearly demonstrated the efficiency and rapidity by which mycoplasma infection could spread in a cell culture laboratory.  He intentionally infected a single culture with mycoplasma and then closely monitored the transmission of the mycoplasma within the laboratory.  It only took six weeks before another cell culture in the laboratory became mycoplasma positive with the same species. In this study, mycoplasma was recovered from laboratory equipment (hemacytometer and disposal trays), technician's hands and work surfaces.  Mycoplasmas were surprising hardy despite their lack of a cell wall.  They survived on surfaces, even in operating laminar flow hoods, for as long as six days.

...

 A study by McGarrity (1976) investigated the role of the laboratory technician as a possible source of mycoplasma contamination in cell culture. He showed that the majority of technicians tested were carriers of mycoplasma, primarily M. salivarium.  Throat swabs, which were used to inoculate broth and agar cultures, recovered mycoplasma from 25 of 31 (80.6%) laboratory technicians tested.  Finally, he evaluated modes of mycoplasma transmission by collecting aerosols generated via talking and sneezing from known mycoplasmal carriers, on culture plates.  In these instances, M. salivarium was isolated from 1 out of 16 plates (6.2%) cultured from talking and 3 out of 8 (37.5%) plates cultured from sneezing.

Yes I had ( have?) Psoriasis  as for the Arthritis portion , that remains to be seen if I get this as I get older ... Cod liver oil and Omega-3 plus coconut oil externally for the skin plus Colloidal silver externally seemed to make a big difference ...
It took over a year to beat this thing on my skin , hopefully I can keep working to flush this out internally ( every indication is that this (autoimmune condition)  is gut source related )  . These mycoplasma's migrate to the bones which creates the arthritis in later years 

Also I used Tea Tree oil externally  on the skin and a small amount in my bath .

Yes it is kind of like Lymes disease and spirochetes.  Colloidal Silver works for that too. 

Just curious, have you had any vaccines within the last 5 to 10 years?

Turmeric helps keep down inflammation too.   Also look into cleaning up your gut and take a good probiotic.

right,  no vaccines , I think I got this at the Denver Airport 15 years ago  ... I've been taking turmeric for over a year ...  X2 iodine, massive doses of Vit-D. I've been trying just about everything I could find...

Oh also Apple cider vinegar (Braggs) therapy for six months  and for a while I did cinnamon therapy ... 
quit drinking beer , started drinking Japanese jasmine green tea ...  lemon water with meals and red wine

Good, no vaccines.  That seems to be the leading culprit in many cases.  Another thing i noticed with people with compromised immune systems are heavy pork eaters.  I believe there is a huge connection there.

...
Introduction

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic inflammatory arthropathy associated with psoriasis. Although most patients with PsA have moderate to severe skin disease,1 the severity of cutaneous psoriasis varies from subtle (sine psoriasis) to erythrodermic conditions. PsA is currently classified as a seronegative spondyloarthropathy, characterized by cutaneous psoriasis, joint destruction, and extra-articular lesions involving the eye, gut, and bowel.
...
Dermatologists are the first line to detect early PsA because skin lesions precede the onset of joint manifestation in nearly 80% of cases. Furthermore, a large number of psoriatic patients are newly diagnosed with PsA, if they are reevaluated with much attention to joint lesions.2,3 Several comprehensive reviews of PsA have also been indicated from a dermatological perspective.4–7 There are several signs of suspected PsA, one of which is dactylitis. Dactylitis is clinically diagnosed and is an important indicator of PsA. Moreover, treatment of dactylitis is required because it progresses if it goes untreated. Herein, the optimal management of dactylitis associated with PsA is discussed.

SUCCESS STORY: HEALING PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS WITH THE PALEO DIET
https://thepaleodiet.com/success-story-healing-psoriatic-arthritis-with-the-paleo-diet/

Even the Ketogenic Diet might be worth looking into.  My husband is dealing with this, but he thinks the guy in the white coat and stethoscope knows what is ailing him (yeah our pocketbooks), but honestly he has no patience so he thinks that Big pHARMa will help him much more quickly with their magic pills and treatments.  I honestly think it is making it worse and doing more damage.

He is severely over-weight.  He eats a ton of pork a month <---I think this is key.  God gave us strict instructions in the Bible not to eat scavengers.  Drinking sweet tea is something to consider since most of the teas are loaded with fluoride and the sugar is for another subject.  Fizzy drinks should be avoided as well.

Look at this study ... they gave sick kids   "high-dose vitamin D (two doses of 200,000 international units / 5 milligrams, given by mouth) "  with NO ADVERSE SIDE EFFECTS ,,,,  Oh and it cured the kids ...   Also a Brazil study using 35000 IU daily for Psoriasis relief

All this is interesting when VitD doses that are considered "high" are in the 6000-8000 IU range !!!
VitD3 caps are usually sold in 1000-2000 IU ---- so you would have to take 100 2000 IU capsules a day to match the 200,000 IU dose or 18x2000 IU caps to match the 35000 IU dose

Vitamin D improves weight gain and brain development in malnourished children
Date:     May 1, 2018

High dose vitamin D supplements improve weight gain and the development of language and motor skills in malnourished children, according to a study led by University of the Punjab, Pakistan, and Queen Mary University of London.

...
Lead author Dr Javeria Saleem from University of the Punjab and Queen Mary University of London said: "High-dose vitamin D significantly boosted weight gain in malnourished children. This could be a game-changer in the management of severe acute malnutrition, which affects 20 million children worldwide."

Senior author Professor Adrian Martineau from Queen Mary University of London added: "This is the first clinical trial in humans to show that vitamin D can affect brain development, lending weight to the idea that vitamin D has important effects on the central nervous system.
...
In the study, 185 severely malnourished children aged 6-58 months were treated with an eight-week course of high energy food sachets, and were also randomised to either receive additional high-dose vitamin D (two doses of 200,000 international units / 5 milligrams, given by mouth) or placebo.

After eight weeks, vitamin D supplementation led to clinically significant improvements in weight (on average gaining an extra 0.26 kg compared to the control group).

Vitamin D supplementation also resulted in substantial reductions in the proportion of children with delayed motor development, delayed language development and delayed global development (reaching certain milestones such as learning to walk or talk).
...
The researchers say their study has some limitations including that it did not look at varying the dose of vitamin D to see if a lower dose would have been sufficient to boost weight gain and brain development. While they saw no overt adverse reactions, the possibility of side effects arising with clinical use of this high dose of vitamin D cannot be excluded.

35,000 IU vitamin D daily for 6 months helped ALL psoriasis suffers (106 ng) – Brazil March 2013

A pilot study assessing the effect of prolonged administration of high daily doses of vitamin D on the clinical course of vitiligo and psoriasis

Autoimmunity has been associated with vitamin D deficiency and resistance, with gene polymorphisms related to vitamin D metabolism frequently described in affected patients. High doses of vitamin D3 may conceivably compensate for inherited resistance to its biological effects. This study aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of prolonged high-dose vitamin D3 treatment of patients with psoriasis and vitiligo. Nine patients with psoriasis and 16 patients with vitiligo received vitamin D3 35,000 IU once daily for six months in association with a low-calcium diet (avoiding dairy products and calcium-enriched foods like oat, rice or soya “milk”) and hydration (minimum 2.5 L daily).
...

... The PASI score significantly improved in all nine patients with psoriasis. Fourteen of 16 patients with vitiligo had 25–75% repigmentation. Serum urea, creatinine and calcium (total and ionized) did not change and urinary calcium excretion increased within the normal range. High-dose vitamin D3 therapy may be effective and safe for vitiligo and psoriasis patients.

THE MIRACULOUS RESULTS OF EXTREMELY HIGH DOSES OF THE SUNSHINE HORMONE VITAMIN D3 MY EXPERIMENT WITH HUGE DOSES OF D3 FROM 25,000 to 50,000 to 100,000 IU A Day OVER A 1 YEAR PERIOD Kindle Edition
by Jeff T Bowles (Author)
....

I started taking 20,000 IU a day-50X times the recommended dose of 400 IU a day.
After about 4 months upped the dose to 50,000 IU a day or 150X the old recommended “safe” dose I then boosted it to 100,000 IU a day or 300 x TIMES the old maximum safe dose!

What happened over these last 10 months? Did I die? get sick? No! Just the opposite!!

High dose Vitamin D3 therapy over the last year-CURED ALL MY CHRONIC CONDITIONS-SOME THAT I'D HAD FOR 20+ YEARS!

1.A painful snapping hip syndrome which I had been suffering from for 23 years and no Dr could help me-It is now 100% gone. No pain and NO SNAPPING!!
2.Yellow fungus infected toenails (under the nail)- I tried everything over 20 years and nothing worked-10 months of high dose Vitamin D3 and they are clear as a bell! 100% cured.
3.A knobby bone spur on my elbow that made me look like Popeye the sailor man-It has now 100% dissolved and my elbow is back to the way it used to be 20 years ago.
4.Painful , clicking, popping, stiff Arthritic shoulders that prevented me from even throwing a ball from home plate past the infield. A condition I’ve had for 15 years. Gone. No more popping snapping or clicking and I can throw the ball twice as far .
5.A ganglion cyst that persisted on my wrist for over 5 years has shrunk from the size of half a golf ball to the size of a pea and now it is rock hard ,painless, and shrinking.
6.A small subcutaneous cyst on my face that had not gone away for 20 years –now gone!
7.AND-Without even trying my weight has dropped by 25 pounds from 204 to 179.
This book tells you detailed results of my experiment, dangers to avoid, and also discusses a simple and elegant new theory that suggests how High Dose Vitamin D3 therapy Should help PREVENT OR CURE all the epidemics of disease and health issues that have been plaguing us since the 1980’s when Doctors started warning us to stay out of the sun and always use sunscreen. This has created the huge epidemics we see today of Obesity, Autism, Asthma, and many others!

The theory is simple-Vitamin D3 is a hormone that your skin makes when you sit in the sun, it is not a vitamin it was just mislabeled when it was discovered. When your Vitamin D3 levels are low, your body gets you to prepare for winter by overeating, slowing you down to conserve energy, and even making you depressed to keep you housebound. Interestingly it is this same drop in Vitamin D3 levels that signals a bear to start hibernating!

If your body expects famine-like conditions caused by winter to be likely- it will conserve your critical resources for the future. This leads to what I call the Incomplete Repair Syndrome which in turn causes most of the diseases humans face other than spontaneous gene mutations that cause syndromes and diseases caused exclusively by aging. High D3 can be used to prevent or treat a huge number of diseases MS, asthma, 17 kinds of cancer, lupus, arthritis, heart disease, obesity, depression, Parkinsons+many more...

High-dose vitamin D therapy: indications, benefits and hazards.
Davies M.
Abstract

There are two sources of vitamin D available to man: The more important source is the cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), which is produced photochemically in the skin from the provitamin, 7-dehydrocholesterol; vitamin D ingested with food is of secondary importance, but assumes a critical role when an individual is deprived of solar exposure. Vitamin D therefore is not strictly a vitamin. A deficiency of vitamin D ultimately results in osteomalacia in adults and rickets in children, and provision of sunlight or small oral doses of the vitamin can cure this bone condition. There are, however, many less common conditions in which small doses of the vitamin are ineffective, whereas larger doses of vitamin D can achieve healing of the bone disease. These conditions are collectively called vitamin D-resistant diseases and include hypoparathyroidism, genetic and acquired hypophosphataemic osteomalacias, renal osteodystrophy, vitamin D-dependent rickets, and the osteomalacia associated with liver disease and intestinal malabsorption. Unfortunately, large doses of vitamin D continue to be prescribed for a wide variety of diseases in which there is little scientific evidence of their efficacy. The benefits and dangers of high doses of vitamin D are discussed and the problems arising from inappropriate or poorly supervised treatment with vitamin D presented. The serum concentration of the active metabolite of vitamin D, 1,25 dihydroxyvitamin D is increased in certain disease states, and the pathophysiology of some these diseases are presented. The exciting developments in tumour differentiation and the role of high doses of 1,25 dihydroxyvitamin D for the control of leukaemia and other blood and skin diseases are discussed.
