Nanobacteria (Nano-sized calcifying particles)

   Nanobacteria are tiny particles that create calcium deposits inthe body.  It is thought that all calcium that is outside of the bones(except in the blood) is from these particles.  Calcium deposits orplaques can cause serious problems if they obstruct normal function ofthe heart and other major organs.  There is a blood test to determineif you have nanobacteria in your body and if your body is reactingnegatively if you do have it.

   In 2001 my office participated in a research trial that focusedon the effectiveness of certain treatments for nanobacteria.  The studywas called the Nanobac Tx-ACES research trial.  The study measuredcalcification of the heart as measured by Ultra-fast CT scans beforeand after treatment.  I was happy to see that all of my patients in thetrial improved their calcium scores.  Before this trial, it was thoughtthat the only way to change calcium plaques in the heart was bysurgery, now, we have other treatments that are proven to be effectiveand much less invasive.

   Since 2001, there have been improvements in the Ultra-fast CTtesting and with the help of dye it is possible to see soft calciumplaques as well as the hard plaques.  There is a scoring system thatwas developed to identify severity of disease but even low scores canrequire treatment if the plaques are all in one place.  It is importantto know early to prevent surgery or death.

Treatments for nanobacteria are relatively easy and I provide thisfor my patients as needed.  We monitor treatment progress with theUltra-fast CT which is done at intervals and generally 80% of thecalcium blockages are gone in 8 to 10 months.   

I recommend the book "The Calcium Bomb" subtitled "The NanobacteriaLink to Heart Disease & Cancer" by Douglas Mulhall and Katja Hansenfor more information.
