Asthma

Hello,

 

I was interested in knowing further about the link between this bacteria and asthma. Can someone elaborate please?

 

Thanks 

You can find a lot of info about this specifically at www.asthmastory.com . They aren't as familiar with the multiple antibiotic protocols recommended here, but have been promoting the link between Cpn and asthma, and use of antibiotics to treat it, for a while.

 

On Wheldon/Stratton protocol for Cpn in CFS/FMS since December 2004.

 

CAP for Cpn 11/04. Dx: 25+yrs CFS & FMS. Currently: 250 aithromycin mwf, doxycycline 100mg BID, restarted Tini pulses; Vit D2000 units, T4 & T3, 6mg Iodoral

My 21 yo daughter has had asthma since childhood and has shown some signs of  CFS but bounced back after a bad episode last spring.  She has had chronic kidney infections that took 3 rounds of antibiotics and 2 trips to the emergency on IV's to clear up as well during that time.  My question is is the antibiotic protocol for the asthma just as effective and do you know what Dr. Stratton's opinion is on it?  Or does he think the multiple antibiotic protocol is more effective?

On CAP currently taking 1200 mg NAC since 11/05,  250mg Zithro 4/06 and 500mg Flagyl pulses every 2 weeks 2/06.  Previously on INH 1/06 but stopped due to elevated liver enzymed 2/06.

 

I can't speak for Dr. Stratton personally, but all of his research, and the studies we've referenced elsewhere on this site, says that if you don't get the organism in all it's forms you risk reinfection (hence 3 rounds of abx plus 2 IV's to supress it enough to get out of the acute phase, assuming it is Cpn in your daughter's case). I know the Asthmastory site has been recommending very high dose azithromycin as a monotherapy. We would consider that inadequate treatment as the Eb's and cryptic intracellular organisms are not eradicated, making for the possibility of reinfection.

Thanks for the infor Jim.  I was really hoping to get her an appt with Dr. Powell, but he was already booked while she's home for her school break.
