Hi all, I have just become a member of the forum after constant reading for the past week
A brief history, I am going to be 32 on Wed, I was diagnosed with MS when I was 24. I had been doing quite well at first with Avonex but then started having relapses after 5 years and decided not to carry on taking it (even though according to my neurologist it was working). From there I started doing my own research. I am now on LDN, take loads of vits and have cut out red meat, dairy and am trying to completely cut out gluten (proving a bit harder, but I will keep trying), I also eat loads more fruit and veg now.
Last year I had my first child and since having him I have been declining steadily! Now my son is starting to walk and I can't help him along, so I am determined to do whatever it takes to get better.
My walking is affected, (I can't walk without the pram, so when I stop using the pram I will need to look into getting a walker), my legs are very stiff all the time, but the worst is probably my balance.
I have found a doc here in Gibraltar who will prescribe the antibiotics so have decided to start on the Dr Wheldon protocol.
I have got this list of supplements from his website:
Vitamin C 1G daily
E 800iu daily
Omega 3 fish oil daily
Evening primrose oil 1G daily
Acetyl L-Carnitine 500mg daily
Alpha Lipoic acid 150mg daily
Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10) 200mg daily
Selenium 200 micrograms daily.
N-acetyl cysteine 600mg twice daily
melatonin 1.5mg at night may be considere
Am I missing anything I should also take?
Then are these the 3 antibiotics I should take?
I have also read a lot about minocycline, is this a different protocol? Or is it something people take if they don't tolerate these ones?
I'm not sure what would be best to try so any advice would be welcome.
Will this make me feel worse before I feel better?
