There's not much to debate because I actually agree completely with you. Our reason for the Minocycline was essentially because our experience was the same as Wilson's - we found my girlfriend's neurologist's office to be dismissive, condescending and unknowledgeable, all at the same time.
I was hoping for a slow, gradual improvement for her when starting on Minocycline because I was hoping that it would have some neuroprotective properties that would help in the long term. Instead, I was stunned by the response: from an immense MS flareup to a complete cure, all in one week. It was after this that I dug around on the web and found David's page at http://www.davidwheldon.co.uk/ms_treatment.html
- and now I have changed my mind completely.
After observing the results, there is no doubt in my mind that MS is caused by a bacterial infection, the hundreds of millions of dollars that have gone into research and many immensely brilliant minds who believe that it is an autoimmune condition notwithstanding. I don't think it is wasted, because this research has allowed us to understand somewhat better the human immune system. This is very important for all of us because no one is susceptible to just MS - everyone can get a host of different diseases. But as far as finding a cure for MS, it is aimed in exactly the wrong direction. The bottom line is, you cannot argue with results.
