FL 1953 Possible co-infection

Does anyone know anything about the possible co-infection FL1953 and the benefit of a really low-fat diet?  Quite by chance, 17 years ago when I was almost bedridden and mis-diagnosed for almost all of that time I found out that a lot of my symptoms improved when I was on a low-fat diet.  I have recently read a little about this co-infection and would like to hear from anyone with a similar experience.

Hey Bathshebamarco,

Welcome to the forum.

No I don't have any personal experience with this FL1953
that now has been renamed Protomyxozoa Rheumatica.

Primary focus should be Lyme Disease treatment, as
LD itself impairs  immune system function, thus "inviting"
all sorts of pathogenic organisms, including the FL1953.

The suggested low fat diet may at first seem as an excellent way to deprive
this protozoan from its favourite food (lipids), however,
certain aminoacids such as arginine, found in grains,seafood,
dairy,nuts and meat is another major source of their diet.
So due to its non exclusive diet on lipids regarding FL1953, this suggestion would make more sense, if the symptom improvement has to do more with the reduction of inflammation ( fried foods,cooking oils create free radicals-oxidation and consequently inflammation which is one of the foundations of disease).

Extra virgin coconut oil -non inflammatory!- consumption may prove beneficial because of its anti-protozoic activity (among its many anti- effects). Look it up at the coconut research center website.

Low fat diets, are becoming a thing of the past, as the nutritional  and therapeutic value of many fats is coming to light.
On the other hand, carbohydrates are slowly moving towards non-safe food status, as their are implicated in more and more chronic and autoimmune disease development.

Let me know if you need any details.
Cheers!

I have posted here a few times, each time checking the box to join,
however, it hasn't happened yet. So the LD Community is not  on my short cut list, and therefore I simply don't think about posting here.
Same thing happened at the Lupus Community. Glitches in the system?
I know it's nothing personal. lol!

I'll make a conscious effort to visit  more often in the future.
There are many familiar names here.
Cheers!

Are you signing up at the top of this page, under "Forums", then in the section titled "Health Forums", and then the section titled "Medical Support Communities", and finally "Lyme"?

It has been a long time since I signed up, so I don't remember exactly how I did so.  Rather confusing, isn't it?
