Thank you again Garzie, very interesting.
That might also be why Buhner for example, focuses more on the immune system rather than just killing everything.
Although, in all honesty, I do think we also need to kill these bugs though, in that regard I might differ a bit from Buhner, but like you said, immune regulation is key here. And I do agree with that.
I made a post a few days ago about
Russian immunoregulators. And I learned in my research that in Russia/Ukraine they often use an immunoregulator as the "base" of a protocol, and then stack antibiotics on "top" of that.
Also, I thought I'd share this, because even though this study was done in broilers, it's pretty interesting:http://thejaps.org.pk/docs/v-22-2/01.pdf
"To our knowledge, no data is available showing
the ivermectin stimulated macrophage engulfment
activity in broilers/birds. The results showed significant
increase in the engulfment percentage at 3 and 5mg/kg
body weight doses of ivermectin. This may be due to the
immunostimulatory effect of ivermectin or more
expression of surface receptors for engulfment. After
opsonized SRBC co-incubation, overall macrophage
engulfment increased (Fig 1)."
"The inflammatory response against DNCB was
much higher at 5 mg/kg of ivermectin after 24 and even
after 72 hours of sensitization. The response of DNCB
remained elevated in broilers of this dose of ivermectin
after 24hrs. and 72 hrs. may be due to its
immunopotentiating action, because the resolution of
inflammation is directly proportional to the quantity and
action of cells of the immune system."
The parts about
macrophage engulfment are also interesting.
