I’m resending this with edits.
Btw I had really difficult migraines and pain in upper torso. It was debilitating. I learned here that I have a problem with many foods. Including cheeses, anything fermented, so many foods that didn’t bother me everytime I ate them so couldn’t figure out. I’m histamine intolerant. It’s a hard road. I’d like to hear more in that and also I have an auto immune disorder that attacks my joints and organs.
Many people have auto immune stuff.
Please supple the best news in healing for these concerns. Thank you.
Structural relationship of vitamin D 3 (cholecalciferol) and vitamin D 2 (ergocalciferol) with their respective provitamins, cholesterol, and a classic steroid hormone, cortisol (see inset box). The two structural representations presented at the bottom for both vitamin D 3 and vitamin D .2 are equivalent; these are simply different ways of drawing the same molecule. It is to be emphasized that vitamin D 3 is the naturally occurring form of the vitamin; it is produced from 7-dehydrocholesterol, which is present in the skin, by the action of sunlight (see Figure 2). Vitamin D 2 (which is equivalently potent to vitamin D 3 in humans and many mammals, but not birds) is produced commercially by the irradiation of the plant sterol ergosterol with ultraviolet light.
Salivary Pathogen Molecular Testing – we strongly encourage all or our clients to have a simple saliva molecular test (provided at our clinic) to determine definitively and quantitatively which periodontal pathogens are present in their infection . Every case is different. This highly definitive test directs treatment therapy moving forward and provides valuable information about the decision to use adjunctive systemic antibiotics . This is considered “individualized periodontal medicine” since we are not guessing about virulent pathogen involvement, thus we can pinpoint the appropriate short term antibiotic for the infection. Health history factors and medical lab test results are take into account before any definitive decisions are made for appropriate therapy moving forward. We often involve the medical doctor (or specialist, such as a cardiologist) in the decision making process based on systemic health issues already present. For example, if a patient has a history of heart disease, atherosclerosis, or stroke, and the molecular pathogen test returns with high levels of certain pathogens known to contribute to vascular inflammation , we are going to be much more proactive in our multidisciplinary treatment approach. This would mean more frequent pathogen testing and possibly a much more frequent supportive periodontal maintenance program. This also empowers the patient through education, if the patient is educated to understand the mouth-body connection, and how it can relate to serious systemic diseases, they can become more involved in their own co-therapy.
