Mycoplasma being found in Crohn's sticking to the mucous coating of the gut

Thursday, January 17 2002 - Filed under: General

Your recent email to Ed in Netherlands on mycoplasma interests me,
especially the following
I opted for an alternative treatment, which consisted of

{1) A diet to rob the bugs of nutrients and support the Th1 branch of
the immune system }

Would you be so kind as to tell me which diet you used, not to list
everything, of course, but the common denominator of the diet. As far as
supporting the Th1 branch of the immune system, what particular diet would
do this more than making sure that the immune system had available all the
nutrients it needs?
The last time I met Garth L Nicholson was at Oxford where he delivered a
talk on Gulf War Syndrome. I did not realize he was into ALS as well.
Mycoplasma have been studied in relation to gut mucosa and diarrhea in
children. You might find it interesting to look up some rather old work of
J. Ranier Poley of the Dept. of Pediatrics and Electron Microscopy in
Eastern Virginia Medical Hospital and Children's Hospital of The King's
Daughter in Norfolk, Virginia. Dr. Poley has done remarkable work showing
that the microorganisms including Mycoplasma adhere to the mucous coating of
these sick children's gut thereby destroying the microvilli and
disaccharidase activity. His work can be found in ''Chronic Diarrea in
Children edited by E. Lebenthal and published by Nestle/Vevey/Raven Press.
Thank you for your attention to my questions.
