My wife has joint issues, so I have gone to an expert to work the maze.
Many of the meds doctors use cause problems.
I selected a doctor that uses an extensive technique on her that incorporates extensive natural supplements process.
Her joint pain is dramatically lower using naturals, so I know it is working.
I suspect protozoan or red worm infection, but I keep my thoughts to myself, If it is working why screw it up with what I believe.
Eventually I will ask her to be tested for strongyloides, or such useless test. Joints is a black art.
I had bone worms, but that was me. Sometimes you just have to learn to stay quiet. What worked for me may have no bearing on what works for my wife.
All I can say is that the immune system is quite complex, and extremely difficult to learn.
Anything that suppresses Immune system is scary.
