Default LDI/LDA therapy for autoimmunity

One of the newer treatments in the Lyme world is called Low Dose Immunotherapy. It's an interesting concept that is very new to me. This treatment is not really just for Lyme, it's being used for all types of autoimmune conditions. It seems to work well for some people but not for others.

One of my coworkers did a version of LDI for her allergies and it did work for her.

A few links:

BetterHealthGuy.com - A Site Dedicated to Lyme Disease and Mold Illness - LDI (Low Dose Immunotherapy)

Low Dose Allergen Immunotherapy (April 2012) Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1783327/

I might consider this for late 2017 or early 2018 (along with mild HBOT). I want to finish IV antibiotics before I start anything new.

Any thoughts on LDI/LDA? Could this be helpful for our community?

My Mood: LDI/LDA therapy for autoimmunity

The immunology (T cell anergy, induction of relevant Treg cells, etc leading to tolerance) looks plausible to me.

There are some reports (eg, http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/...X.2016.1226131) that this approach can work in treatment of allergies.

In theory it could also work in treatment of auto-immune diseases but I can't find any reports of this.
