Serious belittlement of infections
Many infections often remain unrecognised before the outbreak of an illness - or are neglected. However, many noticeable complaints – for example with the digestion, sleep, concentration, headaches and arthralgias, fluctuations of body temperature and skin disorders - can be signs of infections.
What are the actual causes of the symptoms? Is an infection (or an abnormal colonisation with endogenic germs) really dangerous? What can be done, either preventative or curative? These questions must be and can be answered only in the individual case.
When germs in the body are pathogenic
Some germs generally make people sick. Therefore, for example, an infection with pathogenic bacteria (like e.g. Helicobacter pylori) and yeasts (e.g. from the genus Candida) should absolutely be examined and treated medically in case of a positive result.
Other germs also generate symptoms if they appear at wrong places in the body. Medicine then speaks of "Abnormal colonisation". For example, there are bacteria that belong to the intestinal flora (Escherichia coli), but that cause illnesses in the bladder.
The particular role of pathogenic yeasts
An often underestimated reason for repeatedly occurring cystitis is dyspepsia. Especially with a tendency to irregular bowel movements or obstipation (constipation), germs can reach through the intestinal walls into the bloodstream (here we speak of Persorption). Then the germs can be filtered through the kidneys and flushed out into the bladder. Among other things, Persorption is thereby promoted so that, with their damaging effect, pathogenic yeasts can make the Epithelial cells of the intestinal mucosa permeable and thus open and facilitate the way into the bloodstream for other pathogens.
"Fungi" - underestimated and often untreated
In general, the lack of consideration of pathogenic yeasts has a huge number of consequences and the misjudgement of the high risk to health through the genus Candida (e.g. its species albicans, tropicalis, famata, glabrata, guilliermondii, krusei, parapsilosis) is a widespread problem. Because of this, serious diseases can originate acutely or in the course of many years.
"Habituation" to the occurrence of pathogenic yeasts has occurred in humans through the high degree of distribution and so professional circles often also accept that the immune system "will somehow manage with the fungi". However, this is extremely questionable to medical science. In more than 2000 publications, Prof. Rieth, together with colleagues in the University Hospital of Hamburg-Eppendorf, inter alia, pointed to the danger of yeasts with many examples in the middle of the last century. Even if little research is pursued in this area even today, there are occasional publications that clearly show how dangerous this misjudgement is, particularly in relation to the immune system.
Being aware of the findings of microbiological research
At the example of Candida glabrata research, vgl. Seider, K., S. Brunke et al. (2011) The facultative intracellular pathogen Candida glabrata subverts macrophage cytokine production and phagolysosome maturation. J Immunol 187(6):3072-86 (2011) shows that this yeast directly reproduces in the immune system of the person, in the macrophages (hence in the phagocytes) and destroys these ( Brunke 2011 Brunke, Sascha et al. (2011). Evasions- und Anpassungsmechanismen von Candida glabrata bei der Interaktion mit Makrophagen. DMykG, Mykologieforum, Medizinische Mykologie in Klinik und Praxis. Ausgabe 3/11 (2011), S. 23 ) are an important part of the immune response.
However, other pathogens - such as parasites - can also cause many symptoms. For the avoidance of complications and for the specific cause medicine, diseases and ailments require a careful integration of microbiology, where the parasites, pathogenic yeasts, bacteria and abnormal colonisations are tracked down in a system. Also, the right sample collection plays a big role for this. After medical evaluation of a complete diagnosis of the entire microbiology, an efficient and acceptable therapy can be done.
The need for medical guidelines for the examination and treatment of mixed infections
Repeated use of medication, complications and therapy aborts can be the result of a lack of medical quality assurance. Today, great importance is therefore attached to the formulation of guidelines for diagnostics and treatment. Normamed will progressively develop such guidelines for the purpose of medical quality assurance.
In the future Normamed guideline development, particular attention will also be paid to the interaction between infections with parasites, bacteria and yeasts and viruses. In particular, infections with Humanen Papilloma virus (HPV) show that today's medicine here faces a dangerous "alliance of pathogens". This can be broken only through consistent cause medicine.
Results of careful examinations often demonstrate diseases in another light. New chances of a way out from diseases and relief from or healing of symptoms can arise in the individual case.
Breaking the cycle of interactions
Disorders of the organ functions, the digestion, the immune system and infections are in a reciprocal relationship of cause and effect: on one hand, for example, infections cause an impairment of the spleen function (and other organs) - on the other hand, a weak and "overtaxed" spleen promotes susceptibility to infections. Complex disorders of the organ activities are the result.
Comprehensive clarification of the actual causes of symptoms and diseases is therefore important, also with careful integration of infections: the basis is formed for the respective combination of possibilities, with which the root causes can be treated as well and as gently as possible.
Exact classification of the symptoms, careful sample collection and material extraction, microbiologically accomplished laboratory tests, careful treatment and attentive success monitoring are important for an effective treatment of dangerous infections.
The oft-cited "immune system" is often not like it is assumed, strengthened through accumulation of putatively controllable pathogens, but it lacks "capacities" in order to maintain effective protection, or handle other new infections.
A good physical balance does not consist of a balance of pathogens. The objective of comprehensive, sustainable and subsequently preventive medicine is a stress-relieved body with an immune system that is not constantly overtaxed through abnormal colonisations or pathogens and whose organs and organ functions are not are thereby affected.
