This was a post from another site from a Fry patient.
Some info on protomyxzoa testing and treatment (from the biofilm/hypercoagulation conference proceedings):
Dr M tested me for it initially with a Fry smear which shows "hemobart..". The RBCs effected by both bart and proto both look hollowed out, like donuts on the smear so are hard to differentiate. RBCs are hollow because the proto/bacteria consumes our hemoglobin. When my smear was positive, Dr M ordered Fry PCR and Flourescent Enrichment Stain testing. These tests pick up the genetic material from the proto with a stain (95 - 96% confidence) so that both positive ID of the protozoa and an indication of the load of biofilm can be determined.
Protomyxzoa is a prolific biofilm producer, in fact ...myxzoa means "slime producing" so lumbrokinase is a necessary treatment component. According to David Berg from AZ Coagulation Consultants and former director of Esoterix lab, tests of biofilm busting properties of the various enzymes show serrapeptase reduces biofilm communities by 70%, nattokinase by 75% and lumbro by 95%.
In addition to breaking up the biofilm with lumbro, Dr Fry discussed treatment approaches including Ivermectin, tetracyclines (doxy esp), diet, rifampin, heparin, plaquenil, anti protozoals (mepron), EDTA, herbs, and mechanical removal (incidental in surgical cases). His lab did drug sensitivity tests and supposedly I have a handout with details. I'll look through my materials and post it if I have it. Some of the drugs that were effective in vitro require equivalent doses that are too high for humans.
Dr Fry has been recommending an ultra low fat diet - only 15-20 grams of fat a day. From what I can tell, this recommendation is based on three things: First, when they add lipids and fatty acids to the protozoa in the lab it's growth rate is 2.5x normal. Second, he had one patient case (very small sample!) who eliminated all biofilm (and lost 50 lbs) with lipid restriction. Thirdly, MS patients on low fat diets live longer http://www.swankmsdiet.org/ and Dr Fry has observed and sees connections between MS and the protozoa (Kisler 2001 review shows 75 studies since 1888 linking MS to a protozoa).
I asked Dr M about
the low fat diet and he does not recommend it because neuronal connections in the brain need fatty acids to function and severe depression can result without them.
Three other things regarding diet from Dr Fry: He suggests elimination of arginine which is known to support some protozoan and is added to bread. He thinks its possible that patients who feel better after eliminating gluten may actually be responding to this. Same with folic acid - he says the protozoa likes it. And the big thing with diet he says is to eliminate magnesium which is a major component of biofilm structures. He cited a study showing no effect on biofilm by either gentamycin or EDTA alone but that when used together works really well. Then they added magnesium and there was no effect - the theory is that EDTA chelates mag, biofilm breaks up, gentamycin gets at exposed proto and does its thing, add mag back in and biofilms quickly build up again.
Dr Fry says the protozoa is really complex, far more so than malaria. Genome sequencing shows it is approaching the complexity of a worm, hence the Ivermectin treatment. He believes protomyxzoa combined with other specific organisms is behind many chronic diseases.
Sorry for the long post - so much stuff to report from Fry's speech!
