I just heard from a reliable source that one of the patients I know that sees Dr. Lerner has improved greatly. She is about 20 years old and has been sick for about 2 years. She spent the previous year at the Cleveland Clinic with no significant results. She started with Dr. Lerner around May. She saw him last week and she has been moved to a 7, I believe from around 4.5. She thinks she is completely well, but her mom says she still sees things that she would like to see improve. Her mom is very excited about her results. On another side note, I know 2 other women who see Dr. Lerner, all in their 50's. Our progress has been much slower, myself from a 2 to 4 and my friend who I go with to MI has moved from a 3 to 5, over 1 1/2 years. I don't know where we will plateau. I have heard from other people, Cort being one, that some people only move so far and then stop. We are all hoping for more. Interestingly enough, Dr. Lerner told me last week that he and Dr. Montoya are working together to publish a paper on their mutual research results. He is gathering his data on Group B. Group A are people with HHV6, CMV, EBV, viruses only. Group B: viruses and other infection like lyme, mycoplasma, etc. He told me that in his research he found that older, I believe women, do not respond as well. I asked how old is "older" as I am in my 50's. He didn't give me a definitive answer. It is interesting that the young woman responded well and the 3 of us are moving much slower. Before I started with Dr. Lerner, I was with an alternative doctor. He helped me improve some; accupuncture, Vit. C Iv's, neural therapy and some prolo. I still see him occasionally, actually this Tues. and I believe it is the reason I have been able to do Dr. Lerner's protocol. I know there is much talk about alternative vs. scientific. I am one of those who believes in whatever works, try it. I just thought I would share this information.
