Since you like the game of "Smear the protocol", I feel I have to say something in the defense of the mp:
I have like Annemarie decided on the Marshall protocol. I feel there is no point in starting a fight here in which protocol is the better..
Why not respect the fact that there are other antibiotics protocols which you may not agree with personally, but may well be effective?
If one has decided on the mp, the commonly held opinions about vitamin-D and antibiotic-resistance is a finished chapter. The fact that the mp is controversial isn't a surprise..
personally, I seriously considered the CPN earlier, but decided on the MP simply because I found it to have better statistics, and logical rationale behind the research.
Sarah, you say mp-patients are scared into claiming to be better when they aren't? That is a straight out lie probably based a modified rumor put fourth by someone holding a grudge against Marshall for reasons unknown. This statement is really childish and is plain fear-mongering.
You are actually saying Marshall scared all the people interviewed on bacteriality.com are scared into saying they've gotten better?! http://bacteriality.com/category/interview-patient/
are you also saying that all the doctors, hundreds of doctors, prescribing the MP, are scared into this as well??
That Trevor scared the staff at China west hospital into starting a mp-trial?
Trevor Marshall has been invited to lecture at several prestigious medical conferences all over the world,
I suppose he scared them into that as well?
Nadya Markova Phd (http://nadya.markova.googlepages.com/professional
). states in an interview:
I feel that the approach of the Marshall Protocol, which first acts on the immune system and then continues the healing process with an extended etiotropic low-dose antibiotic therapy, is correct. In my opinion, at this stage of our understanding of L-form behavior, minocycline is one of the best antibiotics that is best able to suppress the activity of L-forms.
I suppose marshall scared her too? I'd think this lady know a thing or two about bacteria and antibiotic-resistance as she specialize in the field
you want more scare-examples? Trevor Marshall seems to have the world by the balls with his scare-tactics!
I really do hope you realize the absurdity of you're dogmatic relentless anti-mp attitude, who are you to tell people what is what? you have a husband who is an MD? well gee, I have my own doc, supportive of the mp, are you calling him a heretic?
A few "drop outs" like reenie is only to be expected. Considering the fact that the number of mp-patients is nearing 7000 people, a few drop-outs shouldn't be a surprise.
Looking at reenie's posts on the cpn-forum it doesn't look like she like the CPN-treatment very much either:http://www.CPn Help.org/lab_tests_good_n ... n#comments
Also, I've been sick for so long now and I'm wondering if maybe none of these so called chronic infections are treatable, the cause or is it something else altogether? Look at the folks that use these treatments for YEARS and don't get any better or get something else and maybe it's a result of messing with nature.
this didn't look too good:
I guess you should start scaring people into saying they are better, that would really add some great statistics
you could go on the mp-forum and find posts from discouraged people as well, only the forum isn't intended for whining - it has a setup for how to post progress - or non-progress. If one wants to whine and discuss or fight over other subjects, like CPN or high-dose vitamin D, or steroids one can discuss this at other forums.
The mp forum is exactly that: an mp-forum, if you don't understand the problem of having a loose-chit-chat-arguing-forum about everything else with no order, given the purpose of collecting data, you have to be heavily brain-fogged...
You have "drop outs" from CPN as well, that are now on the mp...
its up to oneself to decide, and random opinion-based smearing with false accusations and lack of understanding wont help that decision.
