Thanks Dr F,
I have been on the protocol for 11 months and appears I will be on it for 2-3 years total gauging by the progress and responses. After the 12 month period there will be an assessment and that will help with indications.
Overall I am in the 'get worse before getting better stage' still. I have less mobility, weakness, fatigue, cognitive changes, muscular aches and pains, taste of toxins, sleep issues and many other transient issues. I have lost 12 kilos in the time and some could be attributed to CPn and cellular die off, some to diet fine tuning and some because I was a little over weight and now more of a healthy weight. I have learned that each person will have their own challenges because of the past injury and trauma history as well as the CPn bacterial damages done to the vascular system of the seven in NZ on the protocol, all for roughly the same time, we are similar in our symptomatic responses to the protocol. We are all wondering what the long prognosis will be! There will be some data presented in 6-12 months and so far it is positive news.
I will ask about thermogram locally, Graham Dobson did them each visit when I journeyed to the College for treatments.
Very good point, I will also speak to the Specialist, Dr Paul Thibault (Australia) about putting it in his study.
Paul was in NZ over the weekend and spoke at a Conference in Dunedin about his work and findings to date.
I have also found that the neck flex is actually an interesting rotation downwards and then a tilt on the up movement to get the compression effect and noise. Hard to describe but I believe it takes a compression action to create the cracking/popping sound. The sound is repeatable for 5-10 times if I have been resting and not moving much.
