“Is this for real?”
Yes, of course it is for real: I started the treatment back in 2003 and finished it in 2008. I only took antibiotics full-time for the first year, though.
I have been posting here since 2004, both in the Antibiotics section and here. In 2003 my neurologist had me lined up for a nursing home within months, but as you can see from the Catalyst programme, I am still alive and kicking and even pursuing my career again.
There are already links to the Catalyst programme in the Antibiotic section and a bit further down here. If anyone would like to see further information, the best thing would be to search through all my old posts.
My husband is a consultant level medical microbiologist who found the work that was going on at Vanderbilt University and adapted the treatment for UK use. Although I had only ever taken antibiotics twice before for very short periods, I followed this regime, somewhat wariy at first but soon with great enthusiasm as I started to see great improvements.
This is a better link for his very real treatment: http://www.davidwheldon.co.uk/ms-treatment.html
This gives a more accurate version of the treatment which has no side effects if taken properly. Leastways, I have never experienced any.
Any Australians here might like to contact Paul Thibault, the phlebologist from Newcastle who will already be known to some on the ccsvi forum. He contacted both my husband and Vanderbilt because he was worried that too many people undergoing ccsvi treatment eventually experienced vein narrowing again. He is, of course, on the same Catalyst programme.
