I was so excited to start a new therapy for CFS, CFIDS, ME, whatever you want to call a redheaded stepchild neuroimmune disease with no name. But it won’t be, at least for now. I’ve been alerted that shipments of GcMAF to the US from BGLI in the Netherlands are temporarily suspended due to recent confiscations by the FDA. It’s not that the federal agency has anything in particular against GcMAF, it’s just that there is a general curtain falling on the importation of these kinds of biological products by the Department of Homland Security. Anybody who knows anything about macrophage activation (hint: what do you think MAF stands for?), knows this is a serious deficit for patients who have been without medical recourse for decades. The reclusive Dr. Nabuto Yamamoto holds the patent for GcMAF, so well, there ya go.
My doctor won’t even do the necessary bloodwork to receive this form of GcMAF anymore. Meh. Who would if the meds will never bother to arrive from the Netherlands anyway? Word is you have to hand carry it in your suitcase yourself twice in six months, if you have the physical and financial means, or the where with all to deal with this, for goodness sake.
