Does CAP work for the reason you think it does?

I hate to poo-poo any of our strategies to beat MS but having been on CAP and felt improvements along with a lot of suffering and some new neurological symptoms, I feel it only right I share this with CAP'ers and those looking into CAP.

HPA axis dysregulation and resulting excess cortisol and aldosterone are known to be a part of MS. Doxycycline and minocycline suppress cortisol and aldosterone release. I think the reason CAP ...

"Germs Are Us" - important antibiotic info for everyone

Very important reading for those who take antibiotics for any reason, including trying to combat "MS." It's a long read, but I encourage everyone to finish the article.

Nigel, I'm thinking of you and your antibiotic regimen for your Cpn infection - could part of the reason for the problems you've been having during the "die-off" period be partly caused by the loss of good bacteria?

Antibiotics for Treating MS in Canada

I have read Dr.David Wheldon's recommendations for treating Chlamydia Pneumoniae, often present in MS patients. I have downloaded the .pdf from his site, which inludes a literature review and sample dosing schedule. Now comes the hard part. I have to find a doctor who will prescribe these antibiotics. I am quite sure that my neurologist will laugh me out of the room, and my GP will probably not want to prescribe a bunch of antibiotics ...

generic vs brand name drugs

Does anyone have feedback on the quality of the various generic forms of Azithromycin, Doxycycline, and Metronidazole.
I am really skeptical of drugs made in India.
The generic drugs are much cheaper, so I would like to go that route if possible, but not if safety and quality are in question.
Also, can anyone recommed an online source that does not require a prescription.
Thanks

Chlamydia pneumoniae- Natural antibiotic= Mentha Arvensis?

I just came accross this research article published Nov. 2011:
http://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/jf2032473

It says that Mentha Arvensis (Menthol) significantly reduced Chlamydia pneumoniae bacterial load in mice. I guess this would be a natural alternative to synthetic antibiotics, no? (except that it would have no negative side effect, of course)

New here with questions - Abx

Hi - I am very glad to have found this forum.
I don't have MS, but it appears I have Cpn.
I have been very sick for years.
I have tested positive for Lyme (culture test), Bartonella, MycoPn and Cpn. I also have HypoG/CVID for which I do IVIG infusions of Gammaglobulin.

My Cpn test was done a week after an infusion so I hope the donated antibodies did not skew the results. I rather ...

How to handle side effects of abx?

I read several posts here with regard to reactions to and side effects of abx. I think if someone is on the Vanderbilt or Wheldon protocol for a long time, the most important thing would be to gather info on handling the side effects of or reactions to the abx from those doctors ( Sriram, Stratton, Wheldon, etc.) who apply this treatment protocol.

As none of our doctors have experience with this protocol (they just ...
