Mycoplasma species are the smallest free-living organisms known on the planet. Mycoplasmal organisms are usually associated with mucosal surfaces, residing extracellularly in the respiratory and urogenital tracts. They rarely penetrate the submucosa, except in the case of immunosuppression or instrumentation, when they may invade the bloodstream and disseminate to different organs and tissues throughout the body.

Unlike viruses, Mycoplasmas can grow in tissue fluids (blood, joint, heart, chest and spinal fluids) and inside any living tissue cell without killing the cells, as most normal bacteria and viruses will do. Mycoplasmas are frequently found in the oral and genito-urinary tracts of normal healthy people and are found to infect females four times more often than males. This is the same incidence rate as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue and other related disorders.

Mycoplasmas are parasitic in nature. They attach to specific cells without killing the cells and thus their infection process and progress can go undetected. In some people the attachment of mycoplasmas to the host cell acts like a living thorn; a persistent foreign substance, causing the host's immune defense mechanism to wage war. This allergic type of inflammation often results in heated, swollen, and painful inflamed tissues, like those found in rheumatoid diseases, fibromyalgia and many other autoimmune disorders like lupus and MS, Crohn's and others. In such cases the immune system begins attacking itself and/or seemingly healthy cells. Some species of mycoplasmas also have the unique ability to completely evade the immune system. Once they attach to a host cell in the body, their unique plasma and protein coating can then mimic the cell wall of the host cell and the immune system cannot differentiate the mycoplasma from the body's own host cell.

Mycoplasmas are also parasitic in nature (referred to as mollicutes) because they rely on the nutrients found in host cells including cholesterol, amino acids, fatty acids and even DNA. They especially thrive in cholesterol rich and arginine-rich environments. Mycoplasmas can generally be found in the mucous membrane of the respiratory tract. They need cholesterol for membrane function and growth, and there is an abundance of cholesterol in the bronchial tubes of the respiratory tract. Once attached to a host cell, they begin competing for nutrients inside the host cells. As nutrients are depleted, these host cells can begin to malfunction, or even change normal functioning of the cell, causing a chain reaction with other cells (especially within the immune and endocrine systems). Mycoplasmas can even cause RNA and DNA mutation of the host cells and have been linked to certain cancers for this reason. Mycoplasmas can also invade and live inside host cells which evade the immune system, especially white blood cells. Once inside a white blood cell, mycoplasmas can travel throughout the body and even cross the blood/brain barrier into the central nervous system and spinal fluid.

Mycoplasma species are often found in research laboratories as contaminants in cell culture. Mycoplasmas may induce cellular changes, including chromosome aberrations, changes in metabolism and cell growth.

This Quantum Formula antidotes the various species in the Mycoplasma genus, as well as mollicutes, tryptophan, arginine, peptidoglycan, sterols, cholesterol.



Mumps, also known as epidemic parotitis, are caused by the mumps virus. Mumps are a contagious disease that is spread from person to person through contact with respiratory secretions such as saliva from an infected person. When an infected person coughs or sneezes, the droplets aerosolize and can enter the eyes, nose, or mouth of another person. Mumps can also be spread by sharing food and drinks. The virus can also survive on surfaces and then be spread after contact in a similar manner. A person infected with mumps is contagious from approximately 6 days before the onset of symptoms until about 9 days after symptoms start. The incubation period (time until symptoms begin) can be from 14–25 days but is more typically 16–18 days.

Mumps are characterized by Painful swelling of the salivary glands (classically the parotid gland). Diagnosis is generally obtained from that feature alone. Parotid inflammation (or parotitis) occurs in 60–70% of infections and 95% of patients with symptoms. Parotitis causes swelling and local pain, particularly when chewing. It can occur on one side (unilateral), but is more common on both sides (bilateral) in almost 90% of cases.

The Mumps virus can also cause Fever, Headache and Painful testicular swelling (orchitis) and rash. The symptoms are generally not severe in children. In teenage males and men, orchitis complications such as infertility or subfertility are more common, although still rare in absolute terms. The disease is generally self-limiting, running its course before receding with no specific treatment apart from controlling the symptoms and pain.

Other symptoms of mumps can include dry mouth, sore face and/or ears and occasionally in more serious cases, loss of voice. In addition, up to 20% of persons infected with the mumps virus do not show symptoms so it is possible to be infected and spread the virus without knowing it.




Absidia species are ubiquitous in most environments.

They are often associated with warm decaying plant matter, like in compost piles.

The best known species is the pathogenic Absidia corymbifera, which causes zygomycosis, especially in the form of mycotic spontaneous abortion in cows. Zygomycosis is the broadest term that refers to infections caused by bread mold fungi. However, because zygomycota has been identified as polyphyletic and is not included in modern fungal classification systems, the diseases that Zygomycosis cause are better referred to as the specific name mucormycosis.

Absidia is an allergenic that could cause mucorosis in individuals with low immunity. Most people come into contact with this fungal species regularly and it poses no health concern. If this fungus breeds infection, it can be a serious and potentially life-threatening fungal infection. It typically affects the face or oropharyngeal (nose/mouth) cavity, but it can also infect the lungs, nose, brain, eyesight and skin.




It is estimated that over 90% of Americans have herpes. More than 40,000 new cases of herpes are diagnosed each day in America alone, that is over 15,000,000 new herpes infections per year! The number of people infected with herpes has reached epidemic proportions. The herpes family of viruses includes 8 different viruses that affect human beings. The viruses are known by numbers as human herpes virus 1 through 8 (HHV1 - HHV8).

Human herpes virus 1 (HHV1) is also known as herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV1). It is typically the cause of cold sores around the mouth. HHV1 can also lead to infection in the genital area causing genital herpes usually through oral-genital contact, such as after oral sex. HHV1 infections are contagious and are usually spread from skin-to-skin contact with an infected person through small breaks in the skin or mucous membrane. The HHV1 virus is more likely to be spread through things like sharing eating utensils, razors, and towels from a person who has an active lesion.

Human herpes virus 2 (HHV2) is also called herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV2). It typically causes genital herpes, a sexually transmitted infection. However, it can also cause cold sores in the facial area. Similar to HHV1, the HHV2 infection is contagious and is spread by skin-to-skin contact. The main route of transmission is through sexual contact, as the virus does not survive very long outside the body.

Human herpes virus 3 (HHV3) is also called varicella-zoster virus and causes chickenpox. HHV3 can also cause a recurrent virus infection of the skin, which is called herpes zoster or shingles. Shingles occurs when dormant varicella-zoster virus from an initial bout of chickenpox becomes reactivated. The lesions generally appear in a band-like or belt-like pattern occurring on one side of the body and are often accompanied by itching, tingling, or even severe pain. Healing usually occurs in 2 to 4 weeks, but the scars may remain. Postherpetic neuralgia is a complication of shingles where the pain associated with the infection can persist for months and even years. Most people who experience shingles once do not experience it again.

Human herpes virus 4 (HHV4) is also known as the Epstein-Barr virus. It is the major cause of infectious mononucleosis, or "mono" - the "kissing disease." It is a contagious infection and is transmitted through saliva. Coughing, sneezing, or sharing eating utensils with an infected person can pass the virus from one person to another. About half of all five-year-old children and 90 to 95 percent of adults have evidence of previous infection. It is associated with particular forms of cancer, like Hodgin's lymphoma, especially in those with compromised immune systems. There is evidence that infection with the virus is associated with certain autoimmune diseases, especially dermatomyositis, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjögren's syndrome, and multiple sclerosis.

Human herpes virus 5 (HHV5) is the official name of cytomegalovirus (CMV) and is the cause of mononucleosis. In people with healthy immune systems, the virus may not cause any symptoms. It can be sexually transmitted, can cause problems to newborns, and can cause hepatitis. CMV can be transmitted through sexual contact, breast-feeding, blood transfusions, and organ transplants. CMV infection is one of the most difficult complications of AIDS. Symptoms include diarrhea, severe vision problems including blindness, infections of the stomach and intestines, and even death. For a virus that barely causes a problem in most people with healthy immune systems, it can be incredibly deadly in people with damaged immune systems, such as people with AIDS.

Human herpes virus 6 (HHV6) is a recently observed agent found in the blood cells of a few patients with a variety of diseases. It causes roseola (a viral disease causing high fever and a skin rash in small children) and a variety of other illnesses associated with fever in that age group. This infection accounts for many of the cases of convulsions associated with fever in infancy (febrile seizures).

Human herpes virus 7 (HHV7) is even more recently observed and is closely related to HHV6. Like other human herpes viruses, HHV6 and HHV7 are so common that nearly all humans have been infected at some point, usually early in life. HHV7 can also cause roseola, but it is not clear what other clinical effects that this virus causes.

Human herpes virus 8 (HHV8) was recently discovered in certain tumors called Kaposi's Sarcoma (KS). These tumors are found in people with AIDS and are otherwise very rare. KS forms purplish tumors in the skin and other tissues of some people with AIDS. It is very difficult to treat with medication. HHV8 may also cause other cancers, including certain lymphomas (lymph node cancers) associated with AIDS. The fact that these cancers are caused by a virus may explain why they tend to occur in people with AIDS when their immune systems begin to fail. The discovery also provides new hope that specific treatments for these tumors will be developed to target the virus.




Found worldwide, the Staphylococcus species are a small component of soil microbial flora (good bacteria). Most species are harmless and reside normally on the skin and in mucous membranes of the nasal and upper respiratory system of humans and other organisms. However, some Staphylococcus species can cause a wide variety of diseases in humans and animals through either toxin production or penetration. Staphylococcal toxins are a common cause of food poisoning, as it can grow in improperly-stored food items.

Staphylococcus aureus cause most staph infections, principally:

  • Skin infections
  • Pneumonia
  • Food poisoning
  • Toxic shock syndrome
  • Blood poisoning (bacteremia)

Skin infections are the most common. They can look like pimples or progress into boils. They may be red, swollen and painful, and sometimes have pus or other drainage. They can develop into impetigo, which is a crust on the skin, or cellulitis, a swollen, red area of skin that feels hot. Anyone can get a staph skin infection. You are more likely to get one if you have a cut or scratch, or have contact with a person or surface that has staph bacteria. The best way to prevent staph is to keep hands and wounds clean


MRSA, often pronounced "mer-sa" (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is one of many of the greatly-feared strains of S. aureus which have become resistant to most antibiotics. MRSA strains are most commonly associated with institutions such as hospitals, but are becoming increasingly prevalent in community-acquired infections. While MRSA is considered antibiotic resistant, most staph skin infections, including MRSA, are easily treated with Liquid Detox applied to the infected area or with use of the MMS Protocol. In more severe cases, colloidal silver will also control Staph.

This Quantum Formula antidotes the various species in the Staphylococcus genus, as well as coagulase, catalase and hydrogen peroxide.


Headache (& Migraines)

Headaches are the ninth most common reason for a person to consult a physician in the US. Tension Headaches account for nearly 90% of all headaches; pain usually occurs on both sides of the head and consists of a dull, steady ache. It may produce a feeling of pressure similar to the sensation caused by a tight band placed on the head and/or around the neck. It typically comes on slowly and is usually triggered by fatigue, stress, dehydration or low blood sugar.

A Migraine is a form of vascular headache. Migraine headaches are caused by a combination of vasodilatation (enlargement of blood vessels) and the release of chemicals from nerve fibers that coil around the blood vessels. During a migraine attack, the temporal artery enlarges. The temporal artery is an artery that lies on the outside of the skull just under the skin of the temple. The enlargement of the temporal artery stretches the nerves that coil around the artery and cause the nerves to release chemicals. The chemicals cause inflammation, pain, and further enlargement of the artery which magnifies the pain.

Migraines generally have a localized pain point, like near an eye or the left side of the head. Pain is described as throbbing, crushing, or splitting head pain. Nausea and vomiting are common because the receptors in the brain are over producing so much that it affects other parts of the body. Triggers for migraines are thought to be bright lights, loud noises, exposure to an allergen (wine, smoke, etc.), lack of sleep, etc.

If you suffer from migraines and notice that I use the word interchangeably with headaches, please do not feel offended. I am not belittling the pain you are experiencing. The reason I have listed both of these conditions on the same page is because the cause of both is often similar. With the exceptions of a concussion, high fever or major vision problems, there is one main reason for all head pain and that is liver congestion with a side of constipation. It doesn't matter what your trigger is; TMJ and various other things can play into it, but the cause is still liver with a side of constipation. Interestingly, the pain pills we take for head pain directly affect the liver in a negative way long term so the medical "answer" is actually compounding the problem. (Nothing new there!)

DIRECTIONS: Over the years I have found headaches and migraines very simple to correct. The Migraine Relief Remedy is designed to support the vascular and muscle (tension) part of the equation. Dehydration is almost always part of the equation, but only you can correct that part. I recommend the Liver Support, but I also recommend the Female Support and Large Intestine Support. This is because females tend to get both headaches and migraines more often than men. Some of these are triggered by hormone imbalance. The liver is still responsible because if it was healthy it would filter out the excess hormones causing the pain. If your head pain has anything to do with menstrual cycles or ovulation times of the month, use the Female Support along with the Liver Support. If your head pain does not seem related to hormones and cycle times, use the Large Intestine Support with the Migraine Relief.

If you take the recommended remedies and you do not find substantial relief, it is very likely you have some Gallstones that need to be flushed out. Even if your Gallbladder has been removed, please do the Gallstone Flush. If your head pain is brought on by blood sugar (missing meals), you also need the Gallstone Flush. If your head pain is triggered by allergens of any kind, MSG and foods containing tyramine (red wine, aged cheese, smoked fish, chicken livers, figs, and some beans are most common), you need to do the Lemonade-Master Cleanse.

I said a side of constipation, so please READ THIS BLOG article to assure you really do have "normal" bowel habits, and how to achieve them.



Microsporum ringworm, a fungus that causes a skin infection called ringworm, can pass from animals to people. It is characterized by skin lesions and small scaly patches that do not always form a circle, microsporum ringworm causes hair loss at the affected site. Ringworm mimics other skin infections, such as demodex, caused by a parasite. Seventeen species of Microsporum exist.

Pathogenic dermatophytes are parasitic fungi that share the ability to invade keratinized (do not have circulation, technically dead) structures such as hair, nails, and stratum corneum, causing superficial infections called dermatophytosis in both humans and animals. Microsporum canis is the main agent of dermatophytosis in dogs and cats but is also a frequent zoonotic agent, as shown by the increasing prevalence of human infections in many European countries.

Human infection occurs mainly by direct contact with infected cats, which are considered the natural hosts and the reservoir for Microsporum. The fact that cats can be asymptomatically infected (no sign of infection) enhances the risk for both human and animal contamination since they are responsible for occult and massive dissemination of fungal material into their environment.



Measles are an extremely contagious virus infection of the respiratory system caused by the Morbillivirus genus. Measles are spread through respiration (contact with fluids from an infected person's nose and mouth, either directly or through aerosol transmission). 90% of people without immunity sharing living space with an infected person will catch it. An asymptomatic incubation period occurs nine to twelve days from initial exposure and infection lasts from two to four days before until two to five days after the onset of the rash (i.e. four to nine days infectivity in total).

An alternative name for measles in English-speaking countries is rubeola, which is sometimes confused with rubella (German measles). The diseases are unrelated.

The classical symptoms of measles include four-day fevers and the three Cs—cough, coryza (head cold) and conjunctivitis (red eyes). The fever may reach up to 40 °C (104 °F). Koplik's spots seen inside the mouth are diagnostic for measles, but are not often seen, even in real cases of measles because they may disappear within a day of appearing.

The characteristic measles rash is classically described as a generalized, maculopapular, erythematous rash that begins several days after the fever starts. It starts on the head before spreading to cover most of the body, often causing itching. The rash is said to "stain", changing color from red to dark brown before disappearing. The measles rash appears two to four days after initial symptoms and lasts up to eight days.

Complications with measles are relatively common, particularly in adults that catch it. Complications can range from relatively mild diarrhea to pneumonia, Otitis media (inner ear issues), acute encephalitis (swelling of the brain), and corneal (eye) ulceration which leads to corneal scarring.

NOTE: Dr. DeHaan does not believe the MMR vaccine is a healthy choice for healthy children. More >>



partMalassezia, otherwise known as Pityrosporum folliculitis (PF) is an inflammatory skin disorder that typically manifests as a pruritic (itching), follicular papulopustular eruption (pus filled blisters) distributed on the upper trunk of young to middle-aged adults. Yeasts, specifically Malassezia furfur, are the pathogenic agents in Pityrosporum folliculitis and have been linked to several skin diseases, including seborrheic dermatitis, folliculitis, pityriasis versicolor, and atopic dermatitis.

papulopustularpapulopustularMalassezia is part of the normal skin flora. In the U.S., Malassezia organisms can be found on the skin in 75-98% of healthy people, even higher numbers of the yeast are present on the chest and back. Colonization by M furfur begins soon after birth, and the peak presence of the yeasts occurs in late adolescence and early adult life, coinciding with increasing activity of sebaceous glands and concentration of lipids in the skin.

Pityrosporum folliculitis may be a bothersome condition, but the lesions are benign. Some underlying conditions that predispose the patient to Pityrosporum folliculitis include diabetes mellitus, immunodeficiency, and systemic candidiasis. Consider the presence of predisposing conditions when Pityrosporum folliculitis is diagnosed.


Memory Issues

This page and its suggestions include help with forgetfulness, general memory loss, short term memory (forgetting recent or new events) and long term memory issues (forgetting past events), but does not include amnesia.

Many areas of the brain help you create and retrieve memories. The cerebral cortex and the hippocampus (part of the limbic system), are part of that. It is considered normal to be more forgetful as we age, but more dramatic memory issues are generally considered a side effect from one of the possibilities listed below. Before you read the list and try to figure out what might be part of your memory issues, please consider this.

In all the years I have been helping people with their health complaints, the main cause of memory issues in people under 60 years of age is not a head trauma or disease of the brain. No, the most common cause of memory complaints I see is overload. In the modern world, it has become customary to fill our lives so full of "to do's" that it literally leaves the brain confused. The brain uses the time we sleep to file and organize events. Good sleep is essential to good memory. But how many of us go to bed with our minds not already racing on the things that will come tomorrow? We worry and we run and we worry some more, and we don't drink enough water and we grab food on the go, and we expect our memory to keep up with that chaos and recall everything about the chaos at a moment's notice.

Don't get me wrong, it would be unwise to underestimate the potential of the human brain, for within it lays the heart of our entire reality -literally! But that is another topic. What I am suggesting is that life become a little less busy and a little less chaotic. First, get enough rest (sleep), and when it is time for sleep, calm the mind with something like reading rather than stimulating or even entertaining tv. As you close your eyes, focus on your breathe and take a moment to be thankful about your day. Try to avoid thinking about tomorrow's tasks, just keep your mind on your breathe and the thankfulness you feel.

Other suggestions to help restore memory (yes, they can be restored no matter what you have been told by medical thinking), listed in order of importance: drink plenty of water, exercise, for only movement induces nerve path regeneration, eat plenty of healthy fats (coconut oil, lecithin, raw nuts, avocado, Krill oil), learn something new every day, don't let the mind become stagnant (like a muscle, use it or lose it), reduce stimulants like caffeine and take time to play and be with people you enjoy.

I must also add that the brain is your most precious attribute. Thankfully it is protected under a hard skull, but studies done by Dr. Amen demonstrate that activities that involve any kind of physical trauma to the head is very damaging to the brain long term. Thus any sport, from boxing, wrestling, martial arts or even soccer, all are counterproductive to maximum brain efficiency long term. Also, in the modern world, brain health is extremely vulnerable to ELF (more here).

When memory issues are the effect of age and some of the brain diseases like Dementia and Alzheimer's disease, it is fairly well established that these conditions have a genetic component and work to destroy memory in part by a plaque (similar to plaque on the teeth) that builds up in the grey matter of the brain. The Remedy program outlined on this page helps to reverse that senile plaque (seen in photo), particularly the Memory Restore remedy and OMCx.

Possible causes of memory loss:

  • Alcohol or use of illicit drugs, especially if prolonged use
  • Not enough oxygen to the brain (heart stopped, stopped breathing, complications from anesthesia)
  • Brain growths (caused by tumors or infection)
  • Brain infections such as Lyme disease, syphilis, or HIV/AIDS
  • Cancer treatments, such as brain radiation, bone marrow transplant, or after chemotherapy
  • Dementia
  • Depression, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia when symptoms have not been well controlled
  • Dissociative disorder (blocking out memories because the stress was too great)
  • Certain medications, and drugs such as barbiturates or benzodiazepines
  • Electroconvulsive therapy (especially if it is long-term)
  • Encephalitis of any type (infection, autoimmune disease, chemical/drug induced)
  • Epilepsy that is not well controlled with medications
  • Certain types of seizures
  • Heart bypass surgery
  • Neurodegenerative illness, such as Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, or multiple sclerosis
  • Migraine headache
  • Mild head injury or concussion
  • Permanent damage or injuries to the brain
  • Transient global amnesia
  • Transient ischemic attack (TIA)
  • Nutritional problems (vitamin deficiencies such as low vitamin B12)

Restoring memory loss is very possible in most cases. It was previously believed that memories were stored in specific parts of the brain so if trauma or surgery occurred to that area, the memories were lost forever. New studies show that memories are actually stored in a kind of holographic field, and complete recall can be achieved by accessing just a fragment of the memory.

In addition to the suggestions above, stimulation of the memories of the past helps to bring old memories that are hard to recall forward. Someone with memory issues trying to recall memories should look at old photos or watch old family movies they would normally be familiar with.

NOTE: If you are trying to assure that you remember something specific (men) correlate a scent or something visual with it. For example, if you went on a special date that you believe your wife wants you to remember, stop and smell a flower, or take a mental note of smells in the air, something that makes that day unique. This will make that memory stand out above others.

The Memory Restore remedy works best when supported with Brain and Neurotransmitter Support. The Detox portion should address any known factors that contributed to the loss. I listed Injury because head traumas are so often part of the equation. Additionally, minerals in a form that can be absorbed and used by the cells are critical, so the OMCx should be used. OMCx is the only product that can reverse the genetic factors that contribute to plaque in the brain. In terms of diet, lots of healthy fats should be considered, but if there has been a serious disease of the brain or serious trauma that needs to be rejuvenated, consider the Primal Diet as described by Aajonus Vonderplanitz's website
