Jennifer Brea: 'ME is not about fatigue or tiredness'

"Brea is cautious to talk about what has helped her combat ME symptoms because different things will help different people, but two antiviral drugs which came out of AIDS research now help keep her out of bed, she says.
She also takes Mestinon – a drug that combats muscle weakness.
“I share that not to say these drugs are the answer, but to offer hope and say there are probably drugs already on the market that have been developed for other conditions that could right now improve the quality of life for people living with this disease. And we’re not* trialling them, we’re not studying them and getting people the help that they need now.”"

 
 
 
Jennifer Brea was pursuing her PhD at Harvard when she fell ill with a fever which turned into years of illness. In the documentary Unrest, she tells the story of discovering and seeking treatment for ME (aka myalgic encephalomyelitis).

Dr Ying Zhang and colleagues just published a study in Frontiers in Medicine on the effects of essential oils and their effects against Borrelia stationary forms and biofilms.
"We found that not all essential oils had activity against the B. burgdorferi stationary phase culture, with top five essential oils (oregano, cinnamon bark, clove bud, citronella, and wintergreen) at a low concentration of 0.25% showing high anti-persister activity that is more active than the known persister drug daptomycin. Interestingly, some highly active essential oils were found to have excellent anti-biofilm ability as shown by their ability to dissolve the aggregated biofilm-like structures. The top three hits, oregano, cinnamon bark, and clove bud completely eradicated all viable cells without any regrowth in subculture in fresh medium, whereas but not citronella and wintergreen did not have this effect. Carvacrol was found to be the most active ingredient of oregano oil showing excellent activity against B. burgdorferi stationary phase cells, while other ingredients of oregano oil p-cymene and α-terpinene had no apparent activity. Future studies are needed to characterize and optimize the active essential oils in drug combination studies in vitro and in vivo and to address their safety and pharmacokinetic properties before they can be considered as a novel treatment of persistent Lyme disease".
Some of these compounds are found in herbal products that we have used for years (like Biocidin, which contains oregano oil) which have led to improvements in symptoms (as well as Herxheimer reactions). We usually use herbs/essential oils as part of our biofilm protocols (i.e., Stevia, Lauricidin, Biocidin), which also have been shown to have an effect against persisters/biofilms. Since these oils/herbs primarily affect stationary forms and biofilms, and Borrelia has been shown to also have cell wall forms, cystic forms and bacteria which can persist in the intracellular compartment, future studies need to address all the different forms of borrelia, as well as antibiotic/herbal combinations that effectively treat co-infections like Bartonella, and other persister intracellular bacteria (such as Mycoplasma, Tularemia, Brucella...). Similarly, many of our patients have overlapping Babesiosis (a "persister" parasite). The Dapsone protocol that we published on last year (Horowitz RI, Freeman PR (2016) The Use of Dapsone as a Novel “Persister” Drug in the Treatment of Chronic Lyme Disease/Post
Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome . J Clin Exp Dermatol Res 7: 345. doi:10.4172/2155-9554.1000345) is an effective persister drug for many with chronic Lyme disease, and also has an effect against Babesia, while previously having been published to treat
autoimmune phenomenon (like Behcets syndrome). Many who suffer with Lyme disease have this triad of borrelia persisters with co-infections like Babesia and Bartonella along with autoimmune markers in their blood (ANA's, RF's, antiganglioside antibodies, anti-thyroid antibodies, anti-myelin antibodies...). It is therefore necessary to treat all of the abnormalities on the 16 point MSIDS map that can lead to chronic inflammation and mitochondrial dysfunction.
Combinations of doxycycline, rifampin and dapsone (for intracellular forms/persisters), along with Plaquenil and grapefruit seed extract (for cystic forms), with Ceftin (for cell wall forms) and biofilm busters (Biocidin, Lauricidin, Stevia, Serrapeptase) are some of the most common combinations that we use in our practice that often leads to significant clinical improvements. A discussion of Lyme disease specifics and treatment options can be found in Chapter 3 of "How Can I Get Better? and the Dapsone protocol and use of pyrazinamide (another persister drug) which can be effective in Bartonella can be found in Chapter 4, "Persisters" and Pulsing for Treating Resistant Lyme Disease".

The CDC finally reverses course on treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome

Lyme disease is the great imitator. It can look like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), as well as a host of other diseases, and it turns out its not just Lyme where patients have had problems with misleading science.
Although some patients with CFS have had help with anti-viral's and immune modulating drugs, most of the patients who have seen me with the diagnosis of CFS/ME end up having Lyme-MSIDS. They have an overlap of different infections (Lyme, Bartonella, Babesia, Mycoplasma, Q-fever, Tularemia, Brucella..) as well as overlapping causes of inflammation on the MSIDS map. These include hormonal disorders, POTS/dysautonomia, environmental toxins with detoxification problems, food allergies with leaky gut, mineral deficiencies, mitochondrial dysfunction,etc. Anyone with a chronic fatiguing/musculoskeletal illness with sleep problems and dysautonomia needs to be evaluated for Lyme-MSIDS. Going through all of the 16 factors on the MSIDS map helps determine where the inflammation is coming from, so it can be properly treated.
Putting politics aside, working together for the benefit of those who suffer with "unexplained chronic illness", and shifting the paradigm for chronic disease by going from a one disease/one etiology model to a multifactorial model like MSIDS is paramount if we are going to start making a dent in the chronic disease epidemics facing us in the 21st century.
