Bile Acid supplements and MCAD

Most of the people who have been on the site for a while remember that I was treating Lyme and Cpn. I was also hammered by mold exposure in the school where I worked.
Here’s what I have found out to date:
I believe I have rid my body of Lyme and lowered Cpn levels significantly
(I don’t think you can ever get rid of it) I’m not teaching any more, so my exposure is greatly reduced. With Covid, masking is a great relief. So is staying away from large groups of people

Checking In

I haven’t been around here lately. Just checking in to let everyone know how things are going. If you recall, I was treating Cpn, Mycoplasma, Lyme, Bartonella, viruses and Mold exposure.
I feel I kicked most of these after years of abx treatment.
But kept getting exposed to mold and Cpn.
In 2016 I went on the Buhner herbs and found them very effective for Cpn. I do a month of herbs every other month now.

Painting the Big Picture

Hello Again,
Here it is summer in California by the beach and we have low clouds and fog. Which means lots of mold.
I have been reading Eric Johnson’s work on location effect regarding mold. Dry sunny days make me feel so much better.
Last summer, it was so hot and humid that sooty mold began to grow on leaves in the garden. I found information about spraying with sulphur and that seems to help a bit.
But I wish I could move out to the desert. Just not going to happen.

Just checking in--it's been a long time.

Greetings to all my friends on CpnHelp,Been a while since I posted a blog. Last year, at the end of the summer, I went on the Buhner herbs for Cpn. My right arm was feeling swollen and tight. This is the arm that was so painful when I was really ill. Spots that looked like skin cancer popped up on that arm and my chest.After the first week of herbs, I had a huge headache all day. The next day, my mind felt sharper and clearer. After three weeks the right arm was back to feeling normal and the red spots totally disappeared! Amazing! My energy was better too.Big mistake--I upped the dosages. That really affected my gut. I had to stop all the herbs.

Keeping a Lid on Cpn

Hello again,just checking in this month. I have been really busy extracting myself from my teaching job. I retired and I'm finally free. Now I will have the time to take better care of my health. Had some Cpn testing done earlier in the year and levels have been rising. I did a few rounds of Ivermectin and it cut the testing amount in half but Ivermectin only goes after the elementary body form of Cpn.

It worked!

It appears that Ivermectin is able to lower my Cpn IGG. After four treatments, it went from 1:128 to 1:64. Cut in half. Will do another round soon.Thought you would all like to know about this.What side effects did I experience? Lots of leg pain with the first dose. Some headaches. Body aches. Last dose cause some stomach pain. Not anywhere near what I experienced with abx.However, my doc is skeptical about it having lasting effects. Well, abx don't seem to have lasting effects against this bug. We get re exposed and we are back on the merry go round. Or we don't kill them all. Some of my infection got into my bones. I recall having terrible bone pain in my legs with Flagyl.Currently I feel good and I'm able to work a full day and continue on with my workouts.

She flies back to say Hi.

hi everyone,Its been a long time since I posted. Been working like a slave and busy trying to get my studio renovated. This is my last year teaching and I'm retiring in June. Really looking forward to that.As for my health, I am glad I found a good naturopath. I have learned a lot from her about keeping healthy. Was skeptical at first but found a good one who is very knowledgeable.She had me tested for Lyme and co infections through Igenex in Calif. I did indeed have Lyme as well as Bartonella. So in addition to Cpn, Mycoplasma Pneumoniae and my passel of viruses there were these other infections. She thinks it was the tick bite (that I never noticed) that just sent me over the edge.

Happy New Year friends!

Best wishes for a very Happy New Year to all my Cpnhelp friends. I haven't been around much as I have been very busy with work.Been feeling good except for a nasty virus I picked up before Thanksgiving. Mold exposure really affected my immune system. Mega doses of C really help. I keep referring people to the site as I keep in touch with some Lyme groups. Many people with Lyme probably also have Cpn and don't know it. This may be complicating their recovery or the protocols we use must be the answer to killing Lyme too.Many thanks for all the support while I was recovering. Love to you all,Raven

C, C and More C!!!!!!

I can't believe I was such a chicken about high dose vitamin C! I thought that 7 grams was a big dose.Now that I have overcome my fears, I take about 12 grams a day spaced over the waking hours. Two grams of this are the liposomal C. The rest is Source Naturals. ( will post a link to it at the end)My mold sensitivities had really gone down. My doctor has found that high dosees of C increase MSH (melanite stimulating hormone) something that is very low in mold exposure patients. This is one of the things they test for when exposure is suspected.Also, been dodging all the bugs going 'round this winter. Priceless!!!http://www.iherb.com/Source-Naturals-Ultimate-Ascorbate-C-Powder-16-oz-…
