Great news! Readers continuously ask me where/how they can get tested for mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis (MAP) infection. This is a bacterial/fungal hybrid that hides inside your cells, so is only detectable if you test for the DNA or RNA of the organism. However, over 90% of Crohn’s patients carry MAP when tested in clinical trials.
And yes, Jini’s Wild Oregano Oil Protocol can eradicate MAP – when combined with holistic healing protocols (diet, emotional healing, bodywork, high dose probiotics, immune strengtheners and so on) – but for those who want solid proof that they either have it, or have eradicated it, they need the DNA/RNA lab test.
There used to be a couple of labs (over the decades) that could do the test, but after a few years, they stopped or switched services. BUT, I’m very pleased to hear from Dr. J.E. Williams that there is a fantastic lab (that he recommends to all his patients) that can not only do the MAP test, but other tricky viral tests as well.
The lab is called Aperiomics and they have full instructions on their website for both patients and doctors. After going through their site, I’m relieved to say that I suspect they will be around for a long time!
“Aperiomics provides state of the art DNA testing for over 30,000 microbes of the viral, bacterial, parasitic and fungal variety. This is a powerful silver bullet in testing for any savvy physician to diagnose the underlying root causes of most medical illness from chronic fatigue to headaches to IBS and a variety of pain syndromes, just to name a few. The staff are friendly, approachable and responsive. It has made a significant difference in the care of my patients and has saved many lives.” – LH Zackrison MD
Aside from Inflammatory Bowel Disease, if you, or someone you love is suffering from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, lupus, lyme, etc I suspect this kind of testing would also be invaluable.
