Apart from slowly working his way through some rewriting to his first page:


David has made a new page:


Easing mitochondrial stress in chronic Chlamydia pneumoniae infections: the use of dietary supplements

In health a balanced diet provides all the vitamins and antioxidants necessary to maintain vigour, and supplementation cannot reasonably be recommended.

In disease states, however, the situation is different. Chronic persistent infections with Chlamydia pneumoniae are characterized by high levels of oxidative stress as a result of complex inflammatory processes. Multiple Sclerosis is no exception. The concentrations of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species - superoxide, nitric oxide and peroxynitrite, a toxic metabolite of nitric oxide - increase dramatically in MS not only because of bacterial activity but because of the pro-inflammatory immune response to this activity........................

This deals mainly with the importance of antioxidants in a supplement regime. More information about such things as Vit D and B complex will be added in due course.

An Itinerary in Light and Shadow Completed Dr Charles Stratton / Dr David Wheldon abx regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years. Still improving with no relapses since starting. Can't run but can paint all day.

Thanks Anecdote - I am not very good at taking my supplements and need to be reminded every now and then to take them... :D
