Thank you slowsmile I'm hoping this will heal and cure me. This infection has spread to my nervous system and brain and no longer resides in my gi tract which my gi docotr told me would probably happen and it did. I've gone almost 2 yrs with no help from the medical field and I used to work in the medical field as a respiratory therapist I'm forced to have to self-treat and frankly I feel that's safer than trusting those idiots who don't have a clue about this disease. I'm supposed to see infectious disease on Dec. 18th but I'm sure they will dismiss everything and not believe me as well. The stuff I got the infection from came from New Zealand where whipple's disease is known and commonplace there.
