Retroviruses are activated by inflammation and steroids, creating a vicious cycle of inflammation and viral replication

Jamie Deckoff-Jones MD:

The pathogenesis of the illnesses needs to be further elucidated and specific treatment found. Now. Not after one specific etiologic agent has been deemed the real deal and there's a foolproof test available at Quest. There may be many specific agents. It's so unfortunate that it didn't turn out to be one retrovirus with a serology test that picks up all cases.

That would have been so easy compared to what we are facing - infections with one, or more than one, of a panoply of simple retroviruses, that remain latent for long periods of time, are activated by inflammation and steroid hormones, creating a vicious cycle of inflammation and viral replication.

It could be that replication incompetent viruses are part of the picture as well. Co-pathogens, like Lyme, fuel inflammation and there may be helper viruses involved in various ways.

And, most unfortunately, there is even a possibility that the new simple human retroviruses are or will be endogenized in subsequent generations. What a mess! Read more>>

There are lots of side effects of using the steroids such that more possible side effects from steroids injections include dizziness, urinary problems, headaches, anxiousness, and cataracts and also there are other many different problems related to heart also.
