Alzheimers and spirochete DNA connection – Dr. Alan B. MacDonald
Excerpted from St Catherine of Siena Medical Center
This is where St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center Pathologist Dr. Alan B. MacDonald weighs in. Dr. MacDonald believes that a paradigm shift in the direction of a non-genetic cause might be in order. His hypothesis is derived from the model of another potentially brain-wasting disease, a spirochetal infection (syphilis), which shows many parallels with Borrelia infections such as lyme disease, both of which respond to, and in early stages are curable by, a simple antibiotic treatment. With the approval of St. Catherine’s Institutional Review Board and a small grant from the Turn the Corner Foundation, Dr. MacDonald conducted a molecular study of Alzheimer’s disease to test his hypothesis using brain tissue obtained from the Harvard Medical School brain tissue.
