More Evidence That Stress is Major Factor for Infections

There is ever increasing evidence that most diseases have an infectious component. This is certainly true for most autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. I have treated nearly 3,000 patients over the last 15 years with an antibiotic protocol with quite impressive results.

However, the longer I use this protocol, the more I realize that other treatments like good structural work and a metabolically appropriate diet are most helpful in improving patients without the antibiotics.

In this study investigators found that older people under chronic stress had higher-than-normal elevations of interleukin-6 (IL-6), an immune-system protein in the blood that promotes inflammation.

Last week I saw a woman for a two-month follow-up who had been on methotrexate and prednisone and was quite crippled up with pain. I put her on the antibiotics and the full program of NST, diet and EFT work. When I saw her last week she had stopped the antibiotics by mistake (I usually keep patients on them for over one year for RA).

The amazing thing though is that she had stopped all her other drugs and she was pain free. I believe the EFT work she did in conjunction with the diet was largely responsible for the improvement. It is the absolute most impressive sight to witness. I just love seeing patients lives turn around with simple, inexpensive, nontoxic approaches.
