Numerous studies have demonstrated that some viruses and bacteria including mycoplasmas could be related with the pathogenesis of arthritis [1-4]. The primary habitats of human and animal mycoplasmas are the mucous surface of the respiratory and urogenital tracts, the eyes, mammary glands and joints . Mycoplasmas have been incriminated as causative agents of arthritis since they were found in rats and mice with natural arthritis 50 years ago [6,7]. Bartholomew isolated M. hominis, M. hyorhinis and M. arthritidis from the synovial fluid in 14 of 17 patients with rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus and Reiter's Syndrome in 1965 .

Sorry for being absent for a bit...but Christmas time was a bit hectic. My sister and I actually spent time together and it was fun.
My sister lives on the outskirts of a rural town (ok so would town describe it???) Maybe village is the best term. It's a new subdivision. If you feel the need to search out the information (like population size, etc) she lives in Kaplan, Louisiana.
Kaplan, Louisiana. is floodzone alongside the deadzone in the Gulf of Mexico.
What do you mean by how is her house constructed? Do you mean building materials? If so I would have to ask her about this!
VOC's come off of paint, polyurethane, carpet and out of plywood. Because of the chemical concoction that this puts into the air of new construction homes or remodeled homes I believe mysterious illnesses such as Ankylosing, etc. are becoming more common. If this is the case consider moving her to a more natural home might be a good idea.
She drinks purified tap water…which is from the city water (out here we have well water).
Water is always suspect. You might want to try bottled spring water for a while to rule out city water contamination.
My sister is under stress (she mainly creates her own because she stresses over everything)…and with all that has occurred over the last few years, so stress is/was commonplace.
I believe there may be a degree to which her condition is psychosomatic. I recommend study of the buddha's eightfold path and pantanjali's yoga sutras for stress management. Learning a productive way to deal with stress could lessen muscle tension in her back. The way I understand the physical effects of this disease... stress leads to muscle tension, muscle tension to artritis, artritis to paralasis.
What are Flourescents?
as in flourescent lighting... or does she spend endless hours in front of a computer screen? Sleep with an electric blanket? Any exposure to EMF that could be limited would help.
Now I know Sri has done his research, we are MOST definitely in a flood zone. I didn’t realize it was also a dead zone (although if you met a few people from my hometown…you may think it was…haha).
I am thinking her house in NOT of pure natural materials, and as nice as moving to a more natural home could be…on a teacher’s salary it is not that easy to just switch homes.
I would have to agree that the chemicals out there are most likely responsible for most illnesses. It’s just hard to get away from them
The more I think about it, she drinks Dasani water.
Stress is definitely a helper in her problem and I wish I could say YES she will follow those ideas of lessening her stress. However, my sister much like me is a chronic worrier. I realize that stressing and worrying is much like a rocking chair, a great way to waste the day…but you never get anywhere, but I think only finding a way to totally turn off her brain and turning her into someone she is not could get her to change that part of her.
Oracle, I would be cautious about suggesting non-traditional medicines for
things like this.
Also though you're a Shaman you don't want to run afoul of the law about dispensing medical advice without a license. You might want to phrase it a bit differently to be safe.
My wife is has been doing a lot of training in Shamanism. What do you think of it?
