This page is almost a separate research page, but this time focused on supplements, or natural substances which work along with the protocols or with the diseases primarily addressed on this site.

Watch for it to grow as new links and info are added! Have a link to research or information that applies to the topic of this page? Post it as a forum topic or email mrhodes40(me) or Jim and we'll add it if it fits.

Melatonin with comments threadQuinolinic acid is an excitotoxin that induces oxidative damage. Melatonin prevented this damage.

Melatonin and Serotonin reduce CPn loads This article indicates that CPn may be inhibited by melatonin and serotonin. Interesting research!

Naturally occuring amono acids differentially impact CPn and CT. This paper looks at a variety of amino acids and how they impact CPn and Ct in terms of growth.

Curcumin and resveratol reduce CPn Cumin and resveratol (in red wine or grape juice) are useful for aiding in controlling CPn

This page is all about vitamin D. There is a large amount of research in this area so it is set up as a separate page.

This page is from David Wheldon's site and is specifically focused on the scientific references that support the use of the extensive supplement regimen he recommends for his protocol.


I found out I have Cpn and don't understand very much. If it has caused my memory loss and tiredness, will treating it undo the damage? What if someone gets a disease such as M.S. or Alzheimers from this CPN? can you reverse it? What IS the treatment for cpn? I am a bit freaked out over this... Also, is this a lifelong battle or can you actually rid yourself of all the CPN? Thanks for any help, Lolo

Welcome Lolo, Look to your left on the screen and click "blog entry" under the heading of "create content." Then please make a new blog to introduce yourself and tell us what's going on with you in more detail. When you're done, click "preview" below the message box and check your blog. You might want to click "enable rich-text" and "input format" to select a format that cleans up the presentation a little better. When it looks satisfactory, click "post" or "submit" below the message box.  You will receive responses to your questions, but the responses you receive are no substitute for reading the handbook and patient stories (see the clickable buttons at the top of the page).  The reading may seem dry and long, so take it in bites. That's the best way for you to truly understand chronic Cpn infection, a CAP (combination antibiotic protocol), and what you can expect.  If it seems daunting, read "Advice to Non-Medical Newcomers" listed in a box at the left of your screen.  Again, we we are happy to answer your questions, but read, read, and re-read too.  Taking small bites works best.
