8 Year Old with Asthma, another update...

Submitted by Elise on Tue, 2011-04-19 13:56

Nathaniel's new CPn titre came in today.  In December 2010, when he commenced zithromycin, his titre was 1:256.  Today (April 2011) it was 1:128.

 

He is doing very well.  He sleeps well now - since the end of January, for the first time in years, he has not needed his ventolin inhaler during the night.  In the last month he has commenced allergy desensitizing and I've noticed that in the past 2 weeks he has been needing his ventolin a bit more.  I'm not concerned, I think this is an immunological reaction to the desensitizing.

 He is tolerating the full CAP extremely well and aside from the intial, awful reaction he had in January, has really not been bothered by anything.

For any parents out there who are treating their child for asthma using CAP, Nathaniel started on Dr Hahn's zithromycin protocol mid December 2010.  After finding this site, and getting a better understanding of CPn, he started taking rifampicin and NAC (as well as some of the other supplements) on Jan 3.  After starting the rifampicin and NAC tabs, he experienced a bad herxheimer reaction, which for him made his asthma much, much worse and he also suffered with headaches and vomiting - he couldn't run up the stairs without needing his ventolin puffer.
