Dr Judy Mikovits signing PLAGUE - 'One Scientist's Intrepid Search for the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Autism and other chronic Diseases'

On Sunday 8th March AONM - Academy of Nutritional Medicine held a conference - Lifting the Veil -Infectious Pathogens & Their Role in Chronic Disease.

From AONM website - 'On Sunday March 8th 2015, the Academy of Nutritional Medicine (AONM) is holding a ground-breaking conference led by top specialists from around the world, all of them renowned for their expertise on infectious pathogens and chronic disease.

The specialists’ combined approaches are revolutionary, and raise serious questions about how and why it is that treatments that are insisted upon by mainstream medicine do not effectively deal with the root causes of certain conditions.' go to the website for further information http://www.aonm.org/lifting-the-veil.html

This was an excellent and very interesting conference especially so for me as it brought together International experts in a variety of fields giving the audience much thought provoking information.

All the detailed presentations moved along at a fast pace making it only possible for rudimentary note taking. I understand there will be a DVD available through AONM.

It was a great treat for me to meet Dr Judy Mikovits, having followed, on line, events unfolding over her research with XMRV a retrovirus and possible connections to patients with ME/CFS. 

I recently read Plague, by Kent Heckenlively and Judy Mikovits -  available on Amazon

A gripping story of research controversies, something many in the Lyme, Autism and ME/CFS communities are already well aware of, but perhaps not to the lengths Judy was subjected to. A thought provoking, sobering and perhaps scary read, but something I recommend everyone read.

Judy's excellent presentations will be available on the DVD but she has already posted similar on the website which she shares with Dr Ruscetti 

Professor Malcolm Hooper Introduced the meeting with his speech - Looking for clarity and Understanding on Chronic Syndromes of Unknown Origins giving a brief history of the troubles ME/CFS, Gulf War and Multiple Chemical Syndrome patients have endured over many years.

Professor Puri treated us to two presentations one Lyme Disease including Cardiovascular, Urological and Neuropsychiatric Sequelae and the other Autism - gut infection and Fibromyalgia research news.

Dr Armin Schwarzbach shared his knowledge of Multiple infections by Borrelia burgdorferi and other tick borne pathogens - symptoms, diagnostic tests and consequences for therapy.

Dr Philip Keilman discussed Natural Therapeutic Interventions for Patients with Chronic Infection.

Thank you to AONM for having organised such an interesting and successful event.
