Bacteriophage therapy was discovered 11 years before antibiotics, in 1917.

After World War II, everyone (except a few entrenched Soviets) abandoned bacteriophage & focused exclusively on antibiotics until most hospitals on the planet were colonized with antibiotic-resistant superbugs.

Some people who have contracted superbugs in hospitals are travelling to Russia where (thanks to those recalcitrant Soviets), bacteriophage therapy is still available.

And it’s worked.

At least anecdotally.

Turns out virtually all bacteria are vulnerable to infections by one or more viral bacteriophages. It’s just a matter of finding the right match.

Plus they’re cute. In a cyborg/war-of-the-worlds kind of way.

Take the Assessment

But until a course of treatment has been proven through a clinical trial, any and all anecdotal data, no matter how intriguing, are considered unreliable.

Clinical Trials

So, let’s say you have a gastroenterologist. Nice guy. Conscientious.

Friendly, relaxed bedside manner.

The kind of guy you can trust to scope your intestinal tract (from both ends).

Mention Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) in his presence & he closes up like a venus flytrap. Folds his arms across his chest, shrinks back against the wall & launches into a list of flaws in the SIBO research methodology.

And flawed methods = inconclusive results.

And inconclusive results mean that SIBO has not been proven to exist.

So, therefore, it doesn’t.

Clinical drug trials costs $30-$50 million and are funded by pharmaceutical companies. When they think there is a reasonable chance of realizing a profit.

The Autoimmune Protocol

The Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) is the antithesis of a drug, really.

Not only is there no way for a pharmaceutical company to make money from it, but if validated, the AIP would (by design) dismantle the pharmaceutical empire.

Take my husband. Six months into the AIP, he’s no longer taking methotrexate, dilaudid or tramadaol. Aside from 2-4 over the counter Tyleneol Arthritis a day, he’s taking no pharmaceuticals at all.

After just six months.

I could fill a hospital ward with the prescriptions he’s received for his primary health issues over the past 12 years. And then wallpaper it with the scrips he’s been issued for the horrendous side effects of all those drugs.

He’s off all of them.

Dr Terry Wahls is currency running clinical trials on all 3 levels of her Wahls Protocol and has established a foundation to fund her research. By necessity.

The 2nd most radical thing you could do to advance the health of humankind right now might be to send her a donation.

The 1st would be to work on healing yourself with food. Then share what you learn with the rest of us.

Because that’s what we’re doing here.

Learning & sharing with each other.

Anecdotally.

Hacking this whole health thing.

Asking:

  1. What if most diseases are caused by inflammation in the body, and inflammation can be significantly reduced through diet?
  2. What if cellular health is determined by food, & nutrient-dense food enables the body to heal itself, maybe even in the face of a #superbug #apocalypse?
