MARCoNS stands for multiple antibiotic resistant coagulase negative staph. You can see why it’s abbreviated, right? It’s quite the mouthful! Now here’s a brief definition: MARCoNS is a type of pathogen that’s resistant to antibiotics, but it's usually not harmful to healthy people. On this, mainstream and integrative health experts agree! But integrative practitioners further believe MARCoNs wreaks havoc in people whose natural defenses have been diminished by chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), chronic inflammatory response syndrome (CIRS), and other biotoxin illnesses. Research shows the pathogen colonizes the sinuses, allowing mold to thrive and making already-vulnerable patients even more resistant to treatment. Targeted MARcoNs treatment—such as nasal sprays containing colloidal silver and other chelating agents—is a cornerstone of broad-based integrative approaches to treating CFS and CIRS. If you suspect you’re dealing with MARcoNs, the course your care takes will depend on whom you consult with. That's because there's often a philosophical divide between integrative and conventional practitioners. Integrative practitioners recognize that pathogens that don't affect the broader population may be problematic for those with immune system dysfunction and chronic infection. Conventional docs question the validity of invisible illnesses and the MARCoNS theory. Bottom line: untreated MARCoNS may threaten your ability to heal. It’s important to seek out a practitioner who believes it's real and knows how to fight it.

Mold Warriors: Fighting America's Hidden Health Threat

From the forewords by Dr. Richard Lipsey and Bianca Jagger to the Epilogue, with the inside story on the cancellation of an entire season of Scotia Prince Cruises in Portland, Maine, Mold Warriors is the first book that brings together the truths that underlies the struggle of patients made ill by toxin-forming mold growing in water-damaged buildings to regain their health and their lives. Mold Warriors has 640 pages and 25 chapters of compelling writing and actual events that demonstrate the medical, legal and scientific battles of the Mold Wars. Biologically produced toxins make many of us chronically ill, steal the life-savings of many victims, prevent our children from achieving their academic potential and our health care system is largely blind to diagnosis and treatment. By reading Mold Warriors, you will learn how to use the Biotoxin Pathway, a magnificent scientific and medical breakthrough, to then easily recognize and treat the mold illness, leavin! g behind meaningless diagnoses such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, stress, “chronic pain syndrome,” deconditioning and more. With Mold Warriors as your companion, you will not be forced to listen to “experts” who tell us that damp buildings might cause respiratory problems, but not neurologic problems, fatigue and cognitive impairment. You will be freed from legal defense consultants who would attempt to falsely deny you your legal rights to compensation for property loss and personal injury. Here are the facts about mold illness; show them to your Congressman and your physician. If you are made ill by exposed to water-damaged buildings, use Mold Warriors to show what is wrong with you on a printed page of lab reports; sometimes just knowing what is wrong becomes the biggest step towards return to health. Begin a step-by-step treatment protocol, published in high level, peer-reviewed, academic journals, that provides a plan to treat sequentially the complex physiologic abnormalities that are caused by exposure to biotoxin-forming indoor molds. You don’t have to stay ill from mold any longer.

Chronic Sinus Problems? Try the Bulletproof Sinus Rinse

The best nasal irrigation I’ve found is a Bulletproof Sinus Rinse. Instead of a Neti Pot, get a large salad bowl and fill it with hot, filtered water (not so hot that it burns you, but fairly hot). Next, add salt; enough to make the solution isotonic (roughly ½ teaspoon for every cup of water). Salt water – the key ingredient in all these techniques – prevents bacterial growth, whereas regular water promotes it. The next ingredient you’ll add is a few drops of iodine, and, if you wish, xylitol. - Place your bowl on a counter and bend forward like a dippy bird. Don’t tip your head back or you’ll gag. Your spine should be parallel to the floor. - Now blink your eyes two or three times. The iodine will sterilize the lining in your eyes where there is a huge amount of bacteria that result in the inflammation of your immune system. This doubles as a way to beat hayfever by clearing the pollen and pollutants from your eyes. - Now, close your eyes and “drink” through your nose. The solution won’t go down your throat if you are at the proper angle; rather, it will collect in the back of your mouth. When your mouth is full, spit the water out in the sink, and repeat. On another day or at another time, try this version: use GSE (grapefruit seed extract) instead of iodine. You can keep using the xylitol. GSE is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial for fungus and bacteria. Do the Bulletproof Sinus Rinse regularly to break up the biofilms in your sinuses. It’ll reduce inflammation and clear your mind. When I started using this technique, I did it about 10 times a day, because my sinus congestion was so severe. Now, I only do it once or twice a week as maintenance. It changed my life.
