Ah, but isn't a 'cure-most' better than a 'cure-none'? At least one person hasn't responded? Oh, my; then it must be useless. But why are hundreds of people doing so well? Why are David Wheldon's patients, Sriram's and Stratton's patients, Powell's patients, so much better? Obviously, they are all deluding themselves because one person claims not to have improved.
That's just false thinking. For whatever reasons, no treatment is going to be one hundred percent effective on ANY disease. People neglect to adhere to treatment, their genetics block a key ingredient, they report subjectively, rather than objectively... any number of things.
I recall Ken's extreme frustration at not being able to get that 'guarantee' from all of us. He researched (read his MS 101 and it will put you weeks ahead in your homework on antibiotics), he investigated, he shopped for promises and begged for pointers to that guarantee we all wish for and he finally said what most of us said. The science of this is sound. It makes far more sense than thinking your immune system woke up one morning, bored, and decided to chew on its own body. Since the antibiotics are fairly benign compared to what else is offered to MS patients and they don't necessarily keep you from taking other meds in addition, why the heck not do a trial?
As for being leery of meds off the internet, that's just an excuse not to take abx. If you want
to do this protocol, there are doctors around the various countries who are
treating. Some people can't or won't travel to see them, so they resort to ordering off the net. You don't have
to order via internet and you don't have
to lie to your doctor. Those things are individual choices. I not only don't order off the net, but my meds are covered without question by my insurance and my doctor is wholeheartedly on board, having completed this protocol herself and now being EDSS of zero.
Most of us simply weren't ready to resign ourselves to a life on a downward track and so we proceeded to blaze a trail where none existed before. Every successful treatment has had those trailblazers and always will. SOMEBODY has to be first and I thank my lucky stars I was one of them. Had I waited for clinical trials and guarantees, I'd be dead. Not quite ready for that yet.
What convinced me was this: www.davidwheldon.co.uk/ms-treatment.html
The man's a doctor, a microbiologist. He is not advocating chomping on silver or sniffing tea leaves. Comparing this protocol to some of that other tripe (which I waded through, too, when newly diagnosed) is a little offensive doctors and to the scientists, actual scientists, who studied it, refined it (and are still doing so) and who successfully treat MS patients with it on a daily basis. Yeah, we're probably a little defensive of the folks who saved our lives.
