“The Majority Subset!” – Quoted from Dr. Wheldon’s site…Folks – let me apologize if I’ve missed something along these lines elsewhere in the site or group.I’ve been trying to get a “bead” on just what any one individual’s expectations from the Wheldon or Stratton CAP Protocol are – both overall and in the short, medium and long timeframes.  I’ve read many of the posts that people have made – and have reviewed the one study by Dr.

Hi Tom,I'm only three months into CAP, but I look forward to contributing down the line as I get more CAP time behind me. One thought, since there are many different conditions that are being treated here, I would recommend substituting MS with Condition in your survey items 1-4.Good luck to you and family!Lynn

Stratton/Wheldon regime for asthma, chronic bronchitis, and sinusitis. Started 6/13. NAC 1200mg morning/night; Doxycycline 200mg daily; Azithromycin 250mg MWF; Flagyl 400 mg 5 day pulses monthly; Synthroid 25mcg daily; Omeprazole 20mg.&a

Hi Lynn,Thanks so much for writing.  I think your idea is spot on.  It doesn't appear folks are much interested in posting their experiences here yet - but if they do - I agree that your suggestion makes a great deal of sense.It might be interesting in those cases - to substitute a subjective disability scale - unless there are similar disability scales for the other disorders.Best & Highest Regards,TomVery Proud Father of Rick & Jamie....

Richard, As you read 'back' on the boards, you'll find about five to ten percent of all newbies ask 'prove to me that this will work' or ' it would be helpful to hear other people's success stories, so please post them'. You'll likely get more answers from those who are new here, just beginning to undertake the protocol, than you will from those of us who have told our personal stories enough times we are getting kind of tired of ourselves.  Cool

Good grief, I only took my EDSS ratings off my signature about a year ago because I thought it too inaccurate, not enough attention given to brightess, too much to walking.  I regard my intelligence as more important than anything and it received a severe beating when my MS turned secondary progressive, but now it has returned, although I certainly am getting very tired of talking about myself.

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Hi MacKintosh,I figured as much - still - I'm curious - not that we need any proof more than the stories we've already read.  I've encouraged Rick to post an essay he recently wrote - as it's about his experiences thus far and would serve as an introduction of himself.  He's just been extremely busy with school - he's getting mostly A's and some B's - studying business.  He is to me an extraordinary individual - as you folks seem to be.  My oldest son, Chris - suggested that Rick keep a periodic video diary of his progress.  Rick's progress may influence other folks to look into this - he's a founder of a foundation to help disabled kids get wheelchairs and enjoy camping in Fresno, California...Rick is scheduled to start with Dr. Powell next month.  We are very excited with the possibilities of Rick stabilizing and improving.Thanks for writing, I really appreciate hearing from you.Best & Highest Regards,TomProud Father of Rick & Jamie...

Hi Sarah,I hear you!  As a Father who just loved taking walks with his sons - I have the hardest time watching Rick's physical decline - and though he says he is experiencing cogntivie issues too - to me he seems as sharp as ever, though it could be denial.  I have a profound hope that he will recover enough to take even a short walk in the forest with me some day in the not too distant future!  If not - we'll get a 4 wheel atv type wheel chair for him.  Your story and the story of others here gives me great hope - that Rick will at the very least stabilize - and against all hopes - perhaps improve on all fronts. Rick has had the most terrific sense of humor since he was a tot.  One day when he was perhaps 4 years old - he got up - walked to the kitchen - looked at a portable, uh more like luggable, computer I had - peered around the front and then the back - and then said "How do you turn this puppy on!"  3 to 4 years old.  Everything he has, was and is - is precious to me, and getting back his physical and mental capabilities is something that will mean the world to me. Thank you again for sharing your story here and in that Catalyst video...Best & Highest Regards,TomVery Proud Father of Rick & Jamie...
