10 days on LDN and feeling worse, is this normal?

Hi all, I am new to this forum and just started taking LDN from medmex 10 days ago. I started out 1.5 and now am up to 2.5mg( cc on my syringe).

roxithromycin 300mg once daily (azithromycin 250mg three days a week is an alternative.)
Short courses of metronidazole will later be added to this ...

Jaded - progress on abx

I am so pleased to hear the progress many of you have made on the abx and other regimes that I thought I'd let you all know how I am doing.

I have been on the abx since August 2005, and took my first pulse of flagyl just after Christmas. My second pulse finished just over a week ago as I delayed it.

In between the two pulses I started to get an intermittent numbness ...

Another research project

This isn't really Bromley (who is taking a well-earned break from MS websites), just someone who sounds similar to him and has the same nickname.

Book review......

Russell Farris and Per Marin MD PhD book review by David Wheldon MB FRCPath


This book explains how common, non-resolving intracellular infections can, over long periods of time, subvert the body's defences by causing chronic elevation of cortisol while provoking chronic activation of pro-inflammatory cytokines; this has serious repercussions, including type II diabetes, atheroma and heart disease. Much of what we put down to ageing is caused by chronic infection.
