Finding and Treating the Many Causes of Chronic Fatigue and Inflammation

Third Updated, Revised, and Expanded Edition of “Rheumatoid Arthritis: The Infection Connection”
Appendix: Physician’s Protocol for Treating Rheumatic Disease by Dr. Joseph Mercola, D.O. (
Appendix: Treatment for Chronic Illnesses and Autoimmune Diseases by Dr. Garth Nicolson (
2013 Eric Hoffer Award finalist: health category.

A professional health researcher, scientist, systems engineer, and former Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) sufferer presents proven benign treatments for symptoms associated with autoimmune conditions.

In This Book You Will Discover:
» How microorganisms cause autoimmune diseases like RA: bacteria, mycoplasmas, viruses, molds, spirochetes, fungi, and more;
» Their role in other illnesses characterized by Inflammation and Chronic Fatigue such as Arthritis, MS, Lyme Disease, Diabetes, Autism, COPD, and gut disorders;
» How slow-growing persistent infections lead to premature aging and Alzheimer’s;
» Ways to suppress these pathogens and destroy the toxins they produce;
» How to control allergies that trigger histamine reactions;
» Ways suggested by clinicians to strengthen the immune system using diet and other natural, non-toxic methods;
» Pointers to our ongoing medical research on our website and to other Internet sites for resources, support groups, and study citations.
» Persistent infections caused by microbes that invade epithelial and immune cells, causing or exacerbating many rheumatic and so-called autoimmune conditions and diseases.

In 2002 there were 59 recognized autoimmune diseases. A decade later the list numbered 109, with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and COPD recently added. The list is growing.

Inflammatory autoimmune diseases are caused and/or complicated by persistent, shape-changing microbes, toxins, vaccines, and inadequate nutrition. A few examples are: Allergies (food and environmental); ALS (Lou Gherig’s Disease); Alzheimer’s; Autoimmune and rheumatic conditions; Autism/ASD; Arthritis (all forms—rheumatoid, osteoarthritis, psoriatic, reactive, septic, Ankylosing Spondylitis, juvenile RA, gout, and many more): Carpal Tunnel; Bursitis (and tendonitis); CFS/CFIDS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome); Fibromyalgia (including backache and muscle pain); Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD); Gulf War Illness; Gut imbalance (many forms—diabetes, diverticulitis, dysbiosis, IBS, colitis, leaky gut, Crohn’s disease, ulcers); Heart and circulatory conditions (atherosclerosis); Hepatitis; Lupus; Lyme Disease; Malaria; Meningitis; Multiple Sclerosis; Psychiatric disorders (bipolar, schizophrenia, depression, dementia); encephalitis; Respiratory Tract (asthma, bronchitis, COPD); Sarcoidosis; Scleroderma; sleep disorders; thyroid diseases; Metabolic Syndrome; Tuberculosis; Urinary Tract illness (cystitis, prostatitis).

Nutrition, antibiotics, probiotics, and immune system-managing drugs can be used in combination to control allergies and inflammation.
» Dr Mercola’s nutrition-based regimen and Dr. Brown’s low-dose, long-term tetracycline antibiotic protocol is described in detail, with updates since the prior edition.
» Web pointers are provided to descriptions of other successful, multi-antibiotic, and nutritional protocols.
» This book provides the latest information on alternative medical treatments that supplement conventional treatments for controlling and eliminating chronic infections.
