The hidradenitis was diagnosed for the first time in 1839, by the same French doctor who discovered leukemia in 1827, Dr. Alfred-Armand-Louis-Marie Velpeau, who despite his enormous work and contributions to medicine is hardly known. A patient with abscesses on armpits, chest and the perineal area, called his attention for their shape and skin characteristics. However, it's unknown whether he achieved any effective or palliative treatment, but in 1854 another Frenchman, Dr. Verneuil discovered that the source of the problem was in the sweat glands.
In the third decade of the XX century, at least the function of the sweat glands was understood and named apocrine and eccrine, determining their functional differences. In 1939, at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, Dr. Brunsting suggested that hidradenitis could be due to luminal obstruction of the apocrine glands (luminal is the interior space or "light" of any conduit.) A few years later, in 1942, it was verified that Brunsting was right.
Hidradenitis suppurativa is a very painful disease, with inflammation in the apocrine glands, those that produce sweat. The affected areas can be underarms, groin, perineum, anal region, genitals, and scalp. Many times it's misdiagnosed or not detected when episodes are rare. Few doctors are informed about this problem, stigmatizing the patient with antibiotics and steroids.
We know the causes and the effects.
It's a recurrent and chronic disease; it can't always be treated with drugs. Although in 2008, in Europe and the United States, one in 300 people suffer from this disease, more than half almost asymptomatic. In 2011, several countries registered less than 200 people affected, most mildly.
It's usually enough a trip to warmer areas for the patient to return with wounds, later infected by fungi, a lot of pain, itching, and burning. The etiological origin isn't the problem, but the microbiological complication, the infections produced by bacteria and other microbes.
We've to look at it in-depth to understand how and why it's cured with the Pyramid Effect. So let's look at its etiology. Doctors, please understand that this article is written for all public, so it contains the simplest expressions.
We have two kinds of sweat glands (or sweating glands). Eccrines and apocrines. The apocrine are those affected by hidradenitis suppurativa, although it may appear a similar infection in the eccrine.
Formed by a secretory glomerulus, and a conduit from which production is excreted directly on the epithelial surface (the skin). They are very tiny; we usually have between 500 and 750 in a square centimetre. Not usually infected, except in sporadic cases. The thermal regulation of the skin through moisturization, external vaporization, and flexibilization in all its functions are fundamental for a hydrochlorothiazide metabolism. The sympathetic nervous system controls the functions of these glands, activated by thermal changes like physical efforts, situations of emotional and or mental stress, etc. The dysfunctions in the eccrine, in a set of symptoms, are called HYPERHIDROSIS, etiologically like hidradenitis, but rarely so severe, it can get complicated in some cases and extend the infections to the apocrine. In this way, chronic hyperhidrosis in conditions of poor hygiene can turn into hidradenitis.
They don't secrete into the skin directly, but into the philososebatic duct. Some physiologists speculate that they are involutional organs tending to disappear, but the truth is that their disappearance would imply significant losses in human genetics. The emanation of pheromones is the main work of the apocrine, but they also function as adjuvants of hair functions, which is not only for aesthetics. These glands produce pheromones, so necessary for "subconscious communication," defining to a large extent, sexual relationships and other forms of people's interaction.
The smell can be unpleasant when it's very intense, especially if combined with the sebaceous secretions, but even more with poor hygiene and bacteria wander at ease.
Children before puberty, don't have strong odours from the apocrines, because the pheromones produced, appear with sexual development. As we see in the drawing, the apocrine has a kind of spiral, where the secretion occurs, and a duct that ends in the pilosebaceous tube, where the hair grows. These glands reach an average of five centimetres long in some parts of the body, 2 mm wide, located between 3 and 5 millimetres deep in the skin. Suppurative hidradenitis, won't manifest until puberty. It's during adolescence when apocrines are activated; it rarely appears in people over 40 years old. Young people with severe acne may be more vulnerable.
Almost 78% registered in men and 22% in women. The most affected racial groups are whites in 82%, blacks the remaining 18%, and the incidence in yellows isn't known in the West.
It's not related to smoking, although tobacco can aggravate some cases, nor to alcohol. It isn't necessarily hereditary, but some autosomal dominant genetic predisposition has been present.
It's not contagious; it's functional of bacterial and non-viral involvement. It's not directly related to other diseases unless we consider mild immune deficiency as such, which may be due to many factors and is usually temporary. However, statistics show an apparent relationship with obesity, diabetes mellitus and others related to cicatrization deficiencies.
The immunodeficiencies are of an accessory cause, not definitely aetiological, propensity factors (obesity, diabetes, acne, etc.) are only associated with a statistical affinity of organic conditions, not as etiological factors as such. There is also a statistical affinity with Cushing's Syndrome (excessive cortisol production due to adenoma in the pituitary gland or to adrenal dysfunctions), or due to excessive drug consumption with glucocorticoids.
Cases of Acromegaly are also found in the statistical table (excessive production of GH growth hormone). It produces abnormal growth in different parts of the body (limbs, jaw, head, etc.) All this indicates that we are talking about a glandular imbalance. Although some of the ailments mentioned have a cause in tumors affecting certain glands, the etiology of suppurative hidradenitis hasn't yet been determined. Some researchers have suggested - also by statistical affinity - a relationship with Crohn's disease, however, when doing the inverse statistics (verify how many Crohn's patients suffer from suppurative hidradenitis), the result was insignificant, coinciding only with similar food conditions, lifestyle and high level of emotional stress.
There isn't a known relationship with the use of deodorants, shave creams or skin creams, but of course, it's a factor to consider for those affected. It's recommended using alum stones (alumbre) instead of deodorant because of its specific bactericidal power, it alkalizes instead of acidifying, no irritating components except for rare specific cases of intolerance. Still, there is pure alum stone on the market, for the most intense smells.
It's very common to be misdiagnosed, confusing it with acne, sometimes with insect bites, scoriations due to work habits or with liver reactions. It's also common to have seborrheic skin, obesity and excessive sweating. The symptoms are abscesses, tumors or nodulations, pain, itching, burning, pus secretion or serosa, pruritus and local fever. In severe cases, fever can be generalized.
Evolution time ranges from a few months to many years. Usually diagnosed when the patient has been suffering for months without results with antibiotics, due to prompt diagnosis and the number of doctors who haven't even heard of this condition.
What happens with suppurative hidradenitis is the clogging or occlusion of the apocrine or follicle ducts because of keratin, which causes dilation of the duct and stasis inside the gland (paralysis of fluid movement within it ), which turns into inflammation. The hair follicle is also inflamed, and that's where the bad gets worse, the bacteria manage to enter the follicle, then into the excretory duct of the apocrine, incubate under the accumulated keratin. They multiply very quickly thanks to the heat and the feeding material they have, such as components of apocrine sweat, basically dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate, fats and proteins.
The inflammation continues because of the lack of sweat drainage that the gland may still be producing despite its dysfunctions, as well as the increase in the bacterial colony. Finally, everything brakes, and although in the graphic seems "isolated," these glands are as close as the hair, so other glands become infected very quickly. The sequence can extend in a few days to thousands of glands, and up to hundreds of thousands, so we have a truly painful and ugly picture of tissue destruction.
The skin present scales, seborrhea, rashes, redness, severe epithelial necrosis, areas of whitish purulence and there are even cases where greenish flaps appear due to opportunistic fungal intervention.
It can evolve in many different ways, appear and reappear spontaneously, causing injuries in one area and at the same time in a different one and or in the same. Between 10 and 15% of cases reach bleeding. More than half of the cases reach epithelial fibrosis, induration by the accumulation of keratin and various dry material, and skin retraction. In many places subject to poverty and especially to lack of hygiene, many fatal cases have occurred. Although the medicine of the market doesn't know the definitive cure, at least it has some hygienic and palliative resources.
DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT
The first thing, of course, is that the doctor has to be meticulous about the suspicion of suppurative hidradenitis and not commit the aberration as we have known in some cases, of confusing it with herpes, psoriasis and others even with lupus, prescribing treatments that in addition to being useless are harmful. Therefore, as some of our medical advisors say, a little jokingly but very seriously: " Be very careful with the doctor you choose, because we have a license to kill ."
It's not enough to rule out anything or to suspect any medical condition unless the doctor is clairvoyant. The first analysis must be bacterial but not binding to the diagnosis because, in any case, it will be microbial opportunism, such analysis can only be used to determine which antibiotics to use and what can be an accessory of disease, but rarely to determine the cause.
Anything can be found in this disease, not always the same types of bacteria, and the way it shows is also too diverse. The only way to detect hidradenitis without going through a profound and detailed biological or molecular analysis that indicates the composition of excretions outside the microbial mass is through live microscopic observation (en vivo). You won't be able to put the patient under the microscope, of course. Still, there are magnifiers powerful enough to explore the epidermis. You can examine the dermis with a 25- magnification M-830 vertical microscope (costs about € 300). Luckily, many doctors already do this operation, and more cases detected every time, which, although if it doesn't solve the problem, at least discards the cause.
Steroids and antibiotics (tetracycline and clindamycin are the most effective) are the most commonly used palliative in severe cases.
The antiandrogen cyproterone acetate and steroids have given good palliative results and perhaps the best, according to our statistics, but without reaching the definitive solution. With isotretinoin via oral, results have also been achieved in ten percent of premedicated cases, which makes the actual effectiveness statistic inconsistent. On steroids, side effects are well known, which must be treated later.
In very severe cases, only surgery has worked, removing the entire infected area, up to one millimetre below the deepest apocrines, sometimes deeper. It's risky, given that operating rooms are a reservoir of bacteria. The surgery itself, with a risk of septic dispersion of more than 85% in any case, makes this alternative the least advisable unless the situation is extreme and life-threatening.
In mild cases, it's advisable to wear cotton clothing, loose, without synthetic fibres, hot water compresses, cleaning with a topical antiseptic (external use, on the skin) and avoid the consumption of eggs, seafood and fats.
LET SEE WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE PYRAMID
Despite very few cases of assured diagnosis, we had the same result as with all patients with severe epidermal problems, except lupus erythematosus and psoriasis, treated separately in two ways that the pyramid solves.
The first and fastest is the symptomatic picture. The second and slower is the definitive cure. The pyramid is used for sleeping, combining with antipyramid sessions. With pyramid therapy, we talk about a very important series of advantages:
The same treatment from the beginning, since the difference between the elimination of symptoms and definitive cure, is only a matter of time under the same therapeutic modality maintained.
Absolute absence of undesirable side effects, antagonisms, antidotism, risk of addiction, etc.
Notable effects from the first sessions.
Easy to use, no risk of chemical or physical invasion.
It's a painless therapy, sedative and muscle relaxant, which relieves cortical pain, noticing relief with visible symptoms. If the patients are treated with noesitherapy, it will not only help to avoid pain without chemical invasion, but the process of pyramid therapy is accelerated by better predisposing the patient. The non-invasive treatments combined in this way are the opposite of the "vicious circle," forming a "sophrological circle," accelerating healing.
A sum of added advantages derived from factors of the Pyramidal Effect: Antiphlogistic, muscle relaxant, sedative, analgesic and bacteriostatic, Scientifically certified verified in the chemical, microbiological, and physical laboratory, with thousands of patients: antioxidant, anti-rheumatic and antidegenerative.
This last effect refers to the ability to correct molecular structures, so all cells return sooner or later to their optimal functioning. It's not the medicine that sets guidelines to chemistry, but chemistry to medicine, just as it's not chemistry that imposes guidelines to physics, but vice versa. The pyramids have a PHYSICAL effect, quantum and atomic, therefore, effectively molecular.
If the matter is corrected from its deepest quantum structure, which defines the atomic completeness, and therefore the molecular order, it will then affect the entire biology complex, returning to the correct function of each part, as the genetic plan. Geneticists are well aware that for a disease to be "genetic," it must also be "congenital." If you weren't born with a disease (and hidradenitis can't happen before the first ejaculations), it was acquired because many things got messy, whether or not there is a factor of "genetic propensity." Even some genetic diseases could be dealt with pyramids, but for now, the tests are insufficient to present a thesis.
The invariable result of quantum, atomic and molecular rearrangement will be the elimination of degeneration in the chemical plane - whatever the disorder - which will result in the reorganization of functions in the biological plane, undeniably derived and effective from the above.
FIRST PART OF THE CURE PROCESS: SYMPTOMATIC RELIEF
There is a very powerful and rapid antiphlogistic (anti-inflammatory) and bacteriostatic effect, with which extreme sepsis (gangrene) is treated with total success. In hidradenitis, as in any inflammation, it will be reduced in a few hours and sometimes verified in much less than an hour, depending on the case.
a) Bacteriostasis. Some species resistant to starvation and the pyramidal effect may live their reproduction cycle plus the life span of the bacterium. Some rare and more resistant strains can be mitosed a couple of times despite the Pyramidal Effect, but they are exceptional.
Considering the biological promiscuity of hidradenitis, the average total bacteriostasis may take up to five days in some cases, because there is already a lot of phagocyte material to feed the bacteria inside the apocrines, in the follicle and dispersed in the dermis. However, after a few minutes of therapy, the proteolysis process will stop, which will mark the inability of the bacteria to continue their attack.
b) The drainage by basic molecular restructuring is verified in less than an hour in all trauma care. In suppurative hidradenitis, there's an important difference; the apocrine ducts are blocked with keratin, so the diminishing of inflammation will occur more slowly in general. However, it will be equally visible in less than an hour because:
Many of the bacteria will be in half an hour, entering sporulation, which will reduce their size considerably. Others will be dead, depending on how the therapy is done. Remember that the pyramid is bacteriostatic, not bactericidal, but the antipyramid is slightly bactericidal, with a broader spectrum than the best antibiotic.
The molecular restructuring of water will be just enough to mobilize the liquids and pass part through the keratin blockage, but that and the magnetic effect itself, will get out of the stasis to most apocrines; at least those who still have minimal functions and excretory force.
Also fibrin, platelets and magnetophobic microbes (all saprophytes and phages) will start to dehydrate, increasing the interstitial luminal so that the less dense liquids begin to flow, both through the keratin in the apocrine duct, as in the broken microcapillaries and any other interstitium. This whole process will also have symptomatic perceptual relief for the patient.
SECOND PART OF THE CURE PROCESS: MORPHOMOLECULAR RECOVERY
As outlined above, there's a restructuring of energy patterns (quantum), therefore completeness and atomic tensioactivation. The atoms affected (with their recovered equilibria) will form molecules less vulnerable. And those restructured and surfactant molecules, from their own atoms (internal tensioactivation), and by the direct effect of the magnetic field of the pyramid that will also continue to work on them, will transmit that optimization to chromosomes, DNA, organelles, cytoplasm, in short, to all the biological mechanisms of which they are part.
To better understand, here's an exemplary question: Suppurative hidradenitis is known to occur because apocrines produce too much keratin, the excretory ducts become clogged, inflammation comes and ... Cataplum! ... We have hidradenitis ... And why hasn't be cured? Well, because the etiology isn't really known, only the last section of the cause-effect chain. And medicine hasn't even managed to understand this section to tackle the issue before reaching the infection stage. It's not known what hormone, lipid, enzyme, radiation, or what produces dysfunction in the glands and inhibition of the antigens that should appear there and do not.
Each gland - anyone in the body - has a stem cell, which will always be the first to respond to the order received by hormones, all the other cells will react according to its behaviour. There are cytologists for and against this explanation, but even those against recognize that "something like that" is what happens in the cellular order and whose functional (or "dysfunctional" origin, for that matter) is in the morphomolecular field, where the most powerful scanning electron microscopes, at most can provide us with molecular symmetry data (which is already enough to locate a good range of the etiology). But it's not possible without going into advanced quantum, to understand the incidence that intramolecular atomic tensions will have on cells. To make the matter more graphic, let's say that a few molecules are enough (androgens, or any compound), to make the apocrines go crazy and start producing a lot of secretion of poor quality. Sure isn't so simple, because quantitatively, that imbalance implies consumption of amino acids, mucopolysaccharides, calcium and proteins that should not appear in apocrines, combined with those molecules that make the glands freak out, we have another part of the body that is affected by the same.
The Pyramidal Effect produces quantum, atomic and molecular tensioactivation, so all systems, from the most elementary protobes to the most complex cells of the body will recover their functionality, in time inversely proportional to the food completeness of the individual (because the pyramid doesn't fix nutritional deficiencies, although the body can do miracles with whatever is there). As we rule out the deficiencies in suppurative hidradenitis, from the statistics collected from all over America, Africa and Europe, we can say that the pyramids are already the best option for patients with hidradenitis, as is the case with all those ailments of "unknown etiology."
Medicine can't succeed with the quantitative or the qualitative, because that terrain belongs to physics, even more than chemistry. Someday more will be known, when physicists stop making a fool of themselves looking for the "particle of God" (spending billions of Devil's money) and get to work with doctors, biologists and chemists to find answers and solutions, instead of investigating how to prolong agonies by squeezing the pockets of the sick.
As long as that miracle doesn't happen, we have one in progress called PYRAMIDOTHERAPY, which works very well in so many ailments because it doesn't attack anything, or break anything, but reconstitutes everything, from the quantum micro-universe. It doesn't even kill bacteria in its internal use, but the most resistant are forced to sporulate and then eliminated by the body, or they die of starvation due to the impossibility of putrefaction. Remember this phrase, doctor: In the well-built and installed pyramid, NOTHING DECAYS, not even in the microcosm of the molecules and therefore of the cells.
The PYRAMID treatment is done with the pyramid itself, inside of it, such as the Pyramidbed. Eight hours a day is enough to prevent any entropic decomposition (disorderly, random, such as putrefaction) without prejudice to symbiotic bacteria (those of the intestinal flora) since they are beneficially affected because they don't eat putrefaction, but do isotropic decomposition (digestion). Besides, by not having infectious bacteria disturbing their work, digestion is optimized, and diseases like Crohn's disease disappear, even in patients with decades of chronicity.
In these cases, as in rheumatism or any chronic ailment, our pyramid Hercules is the best option, because it's between three and four times more potent for organic effects, depending on certain geobiological variables.
The ANTIPYRAMIDE treatment (the field formed BELOW the pyramid), is applied in sessions whose times will depend on the area to be treated and the conditions of each patient. INSIDE the pyramid, one can remain all the time and the more, the better. But in the Antipyramid, there are limited times that doctors must consider carefully in each case. That's why it's not suitable for chronic ailments that also require an effect on the whole body.
Piramicasa contact doctors and individuals with some specialized colleagues from Cuba, who have, like us, half a century of research with pyramids. The Osiris Group in the physical and quantum study, and they in daily practice with more than one hundred thousand patients treated to date, both in Cuba and in other countries. Therapists and doctors have used them for several years in Argentina, Uruguay, Venezuela, Colombia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Canada, USA, Russia, France and Spain.
In Spain and France, some cases are treated with a combination of psychological, homeopathic and endocrinological consultation, so we know the symptomatic diversity, as well as complications, therefore, what the pyramid can do about it.
It's estimated that with the prolonged use of the pyramid, all the causal dysfunctions disappear, as happens to practically all users, except for ailments of absolutely psychosomatic etiology, in which only cyclic symptomatic relief is achieved.
But the most important thing will be the impossibility of developing infectious symptomatology as evident in many cases, in which has been conversion (or better said extension) from hyperhidrosis to hidradenitis, to finally disappear all symptoms, to the extent of bacteriostasis and homeostatic corrections.
The factors that cause a bad smell are bacterial complications and rarely due to the decomposition of lactic and organic acids, although most hyperhidrosis patients don't have it thanks to hygiene, with the pyramid that issue is solved and out of risk; among other reasons because sweat loses acidity without decomposition.
The pyramid dries the matter, yes, but not living matter. In the case of these ailments, it corrects endocrine dysfunctions, with toning of the nervous system (both the sympathetic and the parasympathetic, because we talk about functional optimization of the neurons).
We've studied these problems for a long time since in occasions a psychological correction has resolved cases of hidradenitis and hyperhidrosis (without already manifest bacterial complications), we have detected cases of hyperhidrosis in which there is no way to speak of a "disease," as they are perfectly functional organic constitutions, irreversible congenital characteristics, with a large size of eccrine or apocrines, a potent nervous system and excellent fluid circulation in the endocrine system and the epidermal capillary system. In such cases (only given in hyperhidrosis, not in hidradenitis), the pyramid prevents any possibility of infectious consequences, bad smell and conversion into hidradenitis.
