In brief: Uncertain

Research to answer this question has not yet been satisfactorily performed.
There are several illnesses with which mycoplasmal infection has purported to have been associated, including coronary artery disease. Antibodies to this organism, whether igg or igm do not prove active infection, to say nothing about causation of other illnesses. The theory is interesting and deserves further study.

Unless it's a false positive, positive IgM antibodies are indicative of recent acute illness. This adds credence to the lack of a relationship between mycoplasma infection and those chronic conditions.

In brief: Toxic

Mitochondrial dysfunction and immune dysregulation might be part of root problem. Decrease total toxic load and immune system can reboot.
Requires holistic approach including homeopathics. We have gotten many patients better. Cannot put details into 400 letters...
