I know sooner is better than later regarding all treatments, I wish I knew of this one 5 years ago.
I think you should talk to Sarah, Dr. Wheldons wife and MS patient regarding treatment and seeing doctors. I emailed both Sarah and her husband Dr. Wheldon before I started treatment.
I am not sure where you live in States but some Dr.'s in the States do happily follow protocol.
I understand your husband wants to see one of the main doctors and if you can fit it in to your lives I think that is wonderful. My husband and I went to Germany 7 years ago to see an MS specialist. We turned it into a vacation and have great memories of that trip and all the people we met.
I went back to an old thread of Sarah's and she said the following:
Welcome as well. There are several things you need to do. Firstly, as Rica said, look up www.CPn
Next look up my husband's website, which you can find on CPn Help, but is probably easier to find here:
which it sounds as though you might have done already from your writing. On this, though, pay particular attention to the following page: http://www.davidwheldon.co.uk/supplement_rationale.html
, as well as the adjuncts mentioned on the first page. Of these, a very good start before even getting going on the abx is n-acetyl cysteine or NAC
You will find the protocol, Dr. Wheldon's email and many people here that can answer your many questions.
Best of luck to you and your husband and let us know what you decide to do.
Sarah should see your post soon and is very helpful - with time difference in UK she may be sleeping now but she will be in touch very soon.
