Re: Lyme tests included Chlamydia pneumoniaie - can I dicard

Just consider it for a moment: the testing you are describing aims to evaluate the presence of the organism in the peripheral blood, yet the postulated infection is occurring intracerebrally.

Re: The Wheldon Protocol, Some Advice, Please...

I am very glad you decided to create this thread, Craig. The forum seemed to be a bit slow-going these past few months.

Best.

Re: The Wheldon Protocol, Some Advice, Please...

I think that some more detail is required for an "objective" answer. Have you tried contacting Drs. Stratton or Wheldon via e-mail for their input? There is also the CPN help website, which may be of use. But, personally, I am more interested in what you mean by "tolerance"? Now, do you feel nauseou...

Re: CCSVI screening in NJ

I had the Deak ultrasound and the Zamboni protocal at American Access Care. The Deak vein center took 20 minutes the Zamboni protocol took 55 minutes guess which one was better? Also the Deak Vein center did not catch the reflux American Access Care did. I'd stay away from Deak he is only in it for...

Re: Erythropoietin short peptide...MS, brain trauma

Odd that they can claim "side-effect-free" without first testing it in population that can report and describe said side effects.

Re: What it the safe range of liver ALT number ??

You should certainly have a physician evaluate these scores but, personally, I would re-test after some time (a few weeks) if ranges were 45>40. Though it must be said that mild elevation can be indicative of liver disease, but you need a physician's knowledge and experience with differential diagno...

Re: CCSVI screening in NJ

I am bumping this thread. Last time I visited Dr Deak was about a week ago. The same super friendly US technician was there. 3 1/2 years ago, had angioplasty on left IJV in Katowice. IJVs are patent thus far with some minimal pooling in right IJV which doesn't necessitate intervention. Have had surg...

Re: What does this date mean?

If you are having a bad experience with call support personnel, if they are uncooperative or unhelpful, insulting, rude, stupid, whatever, just escalate: ask to speak with their managers or supervisors and don't waste your energy on them. Also, make sure you get their full names and employee numbers...

Re: Dr. Haskal at ISNVD 2014

"T1 and T2": type 1 and type 2 error . Type 1 error is a false positive, or believing that a pattern is real when it is not (the rustle in the tall grass is a large, predacious animal, whereas in reality, just the wind; a low cost mistake to make). Type 2 error is a false negative, or not believing ...

C. pneumoniae among common pathogens that "may dull mind."

I read this article a few mornings ago. Warning: it is only an abstract. Among the pathogens contributing to this burden: Helicobacter pylori , herpes simplex 1 & 2, cytomegalovirus and Chlamydia pneumoniae were linked with statistically significant affect in executive function and language skills (...
