Background: EPM occurs in most parts of the country and ranges from mild to severe. Conventional treatments are expensive, long-term and debilitate the immune system. Recurrences or relapses are common.
Symptoms: Debility, ataxia and incoordination; symptoms vary from very mild and non-specific musculoskeletal soreness to severe ataxia.
Diagnostics: Early diagnosis is of utmost importance.
Special Notes: The causative organism becomes problematic within the body when the immune system is depleted due to stress, inadequate nutrition or excesses or deficiencies in the diet. Relapses are frequent without immune system support. Reduction of stress and a healthy diet are also important.
Principles for Supplementation: Need significant help in supporting the immune system in order to combat this disease.
