What are stealth pathogens?

Steatlh Pathogens are bacteria, viruses, and parasites that live in our bodies. They are called stealth because most of the time they are undetectable and can also change their form so our immune system has a harder time detecting and killing them off.  We all have some amount of these pathogens in our bodies, this is normal and most of the time our bodies can co-exist with them. In a body with a normal healthy immune system some of these pathogens may live without the host ever knowing, they may never feel any symptoms at all.

Sometimes these pathogens will pile up in a body and begin to create symptoms such as weight gain, recurring infections, anxiety, muscle aches, joint pain, appetite changes, and cognitive impairment. When these pathogens are all running at the same time it is like having a lot of tabs open on your computer and the computer starts to move slower. A heavy burden of stealth pathogens on the body will suppress the immune system. When this goes on for long enough it can create chronic disease which is often labeled and presents as an autoimmune disease.

Can we get rid of stealth pathogens?

Yes! These stealth pathogens can be treated with high quality herbal combinations that will help eliminate them and lessen the burden on the body. I use these herbs in my office and will usually prescribe them for two weeks at a time for a three month cycle. Doing this process over three months helps to lessen the burden of these stealth pathogens on the body and immune system.

If you have an autoimmune disease or any of the symptoms listed above. Please reach out or let me know at your next appointment!
