This is largely the work of Jim K from 2005, but there are alterations recently by Sarah and MacKintosh, who now both run the site.

Sarah Longlands, July 30th, 2019. A website devoted to the understanding and treatment of Chlamydia Pneumoniae, an infectious bacteria implicated in a number of human illnesses. is a non-commercial, website run and supported by volunteers, and does not take monetary or other assistance from any other sources. was started by educated patients who are themselves undergoing combination antibiotic treatment of diseases where Cpn has been implicated, including:

Multiple sclerosis,  Chronic fatigue, Cardiac disease, Interstitial cystitis, Prostatitis, Crohn's disease, Inflammatory bowel disease, Alzheimer's disease, Asthma, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic refractory sinusitis, Macular Degeneration, and others.

Why this website?

Chlamydia Pneumoniae (Cpn) has been implicated in such a wide variety of diseases that information about its treatment and science is scattered about the web and tends to be focused on just one of these illnesses. We hope to be a central source of information, which will allow us to share findings and compare treatment responses across the variety of problems Cpn causes. Work by Charles Stratton et al, extended by British physician David Wheldon has formulated Combination Antibiotic Protocols (CAP's) to treat the multiple life phases of Cpn and fully eradicate this persistent infection.



New to understanding Chlamydia pneumonia?

Our suggestion is to read the forums and comments after you have gotten a basic understanding of Cpn and the treatment process. Forums are often discussions of material which might not make much sense without context, and blogs may be expressions of people in the midst of a challenging moment in treatment, not necessarily typical of what one would expect on the protocol.



If you have or think you may have Multiple Sclerosis read through David Wheldon's website on treating MS through an empirical protocol to treat Chlamydia pneumoniae. It is specifically geared to present the case for this in MS, and is very cogently laid out. Come to think of it, you should read through his site even if you are looking to treat Chlamydia pneumoniae for diseases other than MS, since it is the pathogen you are treating, not the actual disease.

Here is a short video recorded in 2012.

Maryanne Demasi, who worked at the time for ABC television, came to England to do a series of half hour science programmes. Here is half of one, involving Drs David Wheldon and Paul Thibault talking about multiple sclerosis.  What they talk about includes many other illnesses caused by chlamydia pneumoniae:






What makes Chlamydia Pneumoniae (Cpn) so troublesome?


  • While it may start as a respiratory infection, Cpn can be carried to other parts of the body and infect many other tissues, including nerve tissue, the brain, muscles, the lining of blood vessels and even your immune cells (macrophages).


  • Standard single antibiotic courses (two weeks) only kill Cpn in one of its three life phases, leaving live forms of Cpn bacteria which are in other stages to renew infection.


  • Cpn contains at least two endotoxins (toxic chemicals) which cause tissue damage and inflammation, chronic immune activation and toxic load in your body.


  • Cpn infects inside your cells and parasitically steals energy from your own body cells in order to replicate.


  • The only way to cure it is to take a combination of antibiotics, to kill it in all of its life phases so nothing is left behind to re-infect.
