I am sure that you are right there! To start with antibiotics are still given by some doctors for a bad cold of 'flu: a viral disease for which there is no real treatment, just, I think, to make the patient feel that they are doing something.
Whereas, before I got a whole lot better with CAP for MS, I had only been given abx twice: once when I was too young to have any say in the matter, for scarlet fever, then once again when in my twenties, for an infected insect bite.
I think I must have hit upon sensible doctors!
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.
