Re: antibiotics protocol

Hi Sarah

I live in the republic of Ireland have had ms for 13 years on copaxone after finishing betaferon due to side effects.. I am interested in trying the antibiotic protocol with a chance to free myself from this horrible disease. When I approached my local GP she thought I was a lunatic! I explained I had done my research and I gave her my papers printed from David Weldons website. Please can you advise me i9f I could come to David to get a prescription for the antibiotics as I am fearful about buying on the internet and getting wrong antibiotics.? :?: Please help I feel like no one is listening!

Don't forget to let me have your email so that I can send you those papers. As you say, David is clearly a real doctor but the real doctor who actually started this off is Charles Stratton a microbiologist at Vanderbilt, who now works in conjunction with one of their neurologists, Ram Sriram.

I think far and away your best choice would be to take the papers along with David's treatment pdf to either your general practitioner or your family friend who is a doctor. If this person then wants to contact Stratton, he works this way with many similar doctors on your side of the Atlantic. When I first started it was very difficult to get a GP to be adventurous and treat MS in any other way than that prescribed by a neurologist. Over the last few years, though, things are changing and there is a growing consensus of opinion that these are relatively harmless and certainly cheap drugs, so why not give them to people for whom there is nothing else available? David hears from patients all the time that their GP has agreed to prescribe.

The difference between the protocols? David can use roxithromycin which isn't available in the US. Other than that he prefers the gentle approach, but that is something also preferred now by Stratton in most cases. Another difference is probably the fact that David primarily treats hospital patients and sees them on a daily basis. Stratton, on the other hand is primarily a researcher and teacher. They are, though, the best of friends and share the same sense of humour.

When I started I didn't think it would work. I had only taken antibiotics twice before and kept hearing from friends that what they had been given did absolutely nothing for them. David came home with a pack of doxycycline. "Right, take two now!" "Well, shouldn't I wait until the morning so I don't have to take them both together?" "No, take the both, NOW!" It didn't take long to convince me.

Hi, Ken - I don't know how I missed your recent update. Ditto to Sarah's comment; good to hear from you again. I'm going to go back and read through all of it again, but (just skimming) I did notice your comment about the three-year limit on abx. I ended up taking abx over six years, full-time. No way did I feel ready to stop it at three years. (I really didn't care if I had to take the stuff for the rest of my life, as long as it staved off any further decline.)

Sending good thoughts to both of you. I hope you find your answers soon. And kudos to Kim; I can't handle a Segway, no matter how hard I try! We had several at work and everybody played with them; I can run and I can jump and I can drive a standard-shift car, but I can't pilot a Segway. ;-)

Ah, I looked up Segways again when I read that Kim had one, but now I think I will wait. They still aren't allowed here on the public highway in ay case!

Hi All, I'm a new member & have had ms for 33 years. I am interested in trying the antibiotic protocol with a chance to free myself from this horrible disease. When I approached my local GP he thought yet again I have been on the compuuter! I explained I had done my research and I gave him my papers printed from David Weldons website. Please can you advise me if I could come to David to get a prescription for the antibiotics as I am fearful about buying on the internet and getting wrong antibiotics.?
