In this video, Dr. Berg talks about mycoplasma, “myco” meaning fungus-like and “plasma” means blood. It is the smallest free-living organism in the planet and is involved in a lot of body conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, MS, autoimmune problems and other inflammations. Mycoplasma could also go undetected on the other parts of the body. Cat’s claw plant, colostrum, intermittent fasting and prolonged fasting are some of the best remedies for mycoplasma.

Symptoms of Mycoplasma:
• Inflammation
• Pain
• Swelling

Mycoplasma Locations:
• Heart
• Brain
• Mouth
• Urinary Bladder
• Kidney

Hey guys! We’re gonna talk about mycoplasmas today. What is a mycoplasma? Well, it’s the smallest free-living organism on planet earth. Myco meaning fungus-like and plasma meaning blood so it can travel into the blood, it can hitch a ride on a cell and travel through the body. It’s involved in a lot of body conditions, rheumatoid arthritis, MS, many autoimmune problems and it’s really involved in inflammation because your immune system has a really hard time tagging in a and finding these mycoplasma because they don’t have this cell wall. They’re kind of like a little jellyfish and so they’re very stealth, they hide in spaces and they move and they can create migrating pain but it is really not them creating the pain because they don’t really kill our cells. They do compete for nutrients but it creates confusion in the immune system whereby it will cause our own body to cause an inflammatory reactions so when you have mycoplasma, you’re really getting symptoms from your own immune system trying to kill it off and it’s the inflammation that you feel, the pain, the swelling and so in autoimmune, that’s what you see a lot of inflammation, inflammatory conditions. They have found mycoplasmas in the heart, in the brain, the mouth, urinary bladder, and the kidney and so they’re involved in a lot of different body problems and they can actually go undetected for the most part to the body. So on thing you have to know is that antibiotics can set up an environment where they can grow and thrive because you’re killing off your entire immune system. One really good remedy is called cat’s claw, this is the remedy that I would recommend if you potentially have a microplasma and I think if i’m not mistaken there’s over a hundred different types of mycoplasmic organisms that are identified so far but the point is that cat’s claw is very very good in helping your immune system deal with these. Colostrum is very very important too because that’s something that you can take very small amounts over a long period of time to start building up your immune system. So really the strategy for this condition is not even worrying about this guy, but really focusing on building up your immune system to deal with this. So in other words, it’s all about getting healthy first, getting your body healthy versus focusing on trying to kill something off because afterall, they don’t really kill your cells.
