Special Dietary Usefulness: Under a physician’s direction, Transfer Factor PlasMyc™ may have special dietary usefulness for individuals diagnosed with Mycoplasma arthritidis, buccale, faucium, fermentans, genitalium, hominis, lipophilum, orale, penetrans, pirum, pneumoniae, primatum, salivarium, or spermatophilum, Ureaplasma urealyticum, Nanobacterium, HHV6 A & B, CMV, EBV, C. pneumoniae and human plaque.
Transfer Factor PlasMyc™ provides the physician with a targeted formula developed to support the body’s immune system. This uniquely formulated transfer factor is derived from chicken based transfer factor. As with all targeted transfer factors, it is recommended the health care professional confirm the patient's condition with the appropriate lab tests which are available at a number of commercial labs (i.e. ImmunoSciences, Beverly Hills, CA) prior to administering the targeted transfer factor.
Another set of tests a health care professional may want to consider is the HEMEX Labs (Phoenix, AZ) hypercoag panel. According to their in-depth research, many patients blood is so thick that proper oxygenation of the brain and other tissues is subpar. Their unique testing diagnoses the problem and follow-up discussion with the lab often leads to a protocol for the treating physician to follow. Mycoplasma are a cross between bacteria and viruses. They hide inside cells, often in the most secret places of our bodies. Members of the genus Mycoplasma are the smallest organisms lacking cell walls that are capable of self-replication and cause various diseases in humans, animals, and plants.
Labs which perform PCR testing for mycoplasma recommend patients not take antibiotics within 2-3 days prior to submitting the blood sample for testing. Antibiotic use may lead to a false negative.
As a dietary supplement, take on an empty stomach (two hours after eating or one hour before eating) or as directed by your health care professional. * Week 1: one gelcap per day * Week 2 & beyond: two gelcaps per day
Due to elevated TH2 during a pregnancy state, from a conservative standpoint, it may be best to avoid use of transfer factors in pregnant women.
Some individuals may experience flu-like symptoms when they first take the product. Most physicians recognize this as a normal reaction of any product developed to support the immune system. If these symptoms occur, they generally subside within two weeks. Sensitive individuals should start with one capsule every other day for the first week; one capsule per day for the second week; two capsules per day for the third week and thereafter. If individual misses a dose, he/she should not double the dose.
