I remember that one of the scientists in "Under our skin" said that he discovered that the bacteris were forming microplasts? microfilm? a nd that is why it could not be detected/treated? Does anyone remember what these were called? Microplasts? Microfilms??????

I am pretty sure microfilms- the microfilm is some sort of film that protects the bacteria from getting killed by the abx.

i have heard that heparin breaks up biofilm. that is a script though and may be hard to get (not so sure, never ran this by my llmd). the other thing that people are using is serrapeptase (over the counter).
