So I went to the seminar given by two doctors here in Mexico. It was very interesting and I will do more research. Basically they base their therapy on a Nobel Peace winner named Niels Jerne who was a Danish immunologist who is known for three significant ideas. Firstly, instead of the body producing antibodies in response to an antigen, Jerne postulated that the immune system already has the specific antibodies it needs to fight antigens (basically if you have a good immune system it kills the bad guys). Secondly, it was known that the immune system learns to be tolerant to the individual's own self. Jerne postulated that this learning takes place in the thymus. Thirdly, it was known that T cells and B cells communicate with each other. Jerne's network theory proposed that the active sites of antibodies are attracted to the specific antigens (bad guys) and to the antibodies that bind to the same site. The antibodies are in balance, until and antigen disturbs the balance, stimulating and immune reaction.
I know, technical. These doctors are saying that they will take 5cc of your own blood and then they add specific solutions to it depending on your autoimmune disorder and make a specific vaccination designed for your needs. This vaccine is suppose to retrain/rebuild your immune system so it does not attack your body which is what autoimmune disorders do. They have a web site but it is all in Spanish but if anyone is interested here it is
You are trained to give yourself a daily shot of this designed vaccination for a year to retrain your immune system.
I am of course checking with all my doctors to see if they have heard of this and what they think. Sounds a bit too much like magic. But we all know that when we have an autoimmune we are looking for that "magic bullet".
Anyway will investigate a lot more!
Hope you all have a terrific day.
