Bartonella and CFS

There appears to be growing evidence of 'Stealth Infections' as an underlying etiology in many diseases.  Common blood screenings refuse to show these infections and most clinicians have no education concerning the connection between chronic disease and pathogens.   The pathogens that are at the top of the list are the ones the media promotes such as e coli and salmonella, but there are a plethora of other infectious organisms that can cause major problems.

I was infected what is thought to be a protozoa parasite (pathogenic subtype of Iodamoeba butschlii)  From the research and the feedback from the forum (pptu.lefora.com), it is well known the damage these organisms can do.   This parasite caused profound problems for me in which I had a wide range of problems.  

However protozoa are just among many organisms that create problems.
I ran across an article about the psychiatric anomalies that Bartonella causes for people.  Profound changes occurred with these people including anxiety, depression, mood changes, hostility and hopelessness. (1)

Bartonella is a gram negative bacteria that is transmitted from animals such as cats and rodents, it is also known as cat scratch fever.   These live intracellular, meaning they lodge into the cells and create havoc.   It was considered at one time to be a limiting infection, that is an infection that is short-lived but current research is showing this to be false.   Researchers have found many types or subtypes (13 that can infect humans) of the Bartonella species that were once unknown  and believe that this is an up and coming infection.  Rheumatism is a medical condition that affects muscles, joints, tendons, nerves and bones - Bartonella is one pathogen that has been implicated in this.

Testing methods from the past failed to identify these in humans but new approaches are leading to clearer definitions says Dr. Breitschwerdt a leading researcher at North Carolina State.  At some time in the future, it is my hope that a single blood draw will be able to correctly identify the pathogens.
