My renaissance, starting January 2019

Body

I ordered a 3-month supply of the Wheldon Protocol from India, via my Indian neighbour. 

It arrived today (£35 for Doxycycline, Azythromycin and Metronidazole) and I've taken the first 100mg of Doxycyline. It is extremely exciting. I told a friend about this and it turns out her sister had a 3-month prescription of Doxy for a skin condition, and her mysterious aching muscles got better as well.

Onwards!

Elizabeth - please don’t panic if symptoms start to get worse again when you start pulses. It can become a bit of an up and down battle for some of us - constant two steps forward, one step back. Worth it in the end though.

Thanks, Boadicea. I'll certainly bear that in mind. These comments are a bit mixed up again; I hope this comes as an answer to your kind comment. 

Tell me, how are you doing? I was just reading your self-description. I can't see your total progress, unless I'm doing this wrong? Sarah is such a beacon of hope to us all. I hope  will be like she is.

Cheers,

Elizabeth, one more thing I will add re: pulsing:

I did a full five day, full dose pulse, the very first time I started it.  That first pulse passed without difficulty, but then after a few weeks the bursts of pain started and the third pulse had me in tears, leaning against the aga.

On the plus side, when this pain passed, it never returned!

Hi Sarah, 

Thanks. That sounds pretty devastating. 
How many pulses did you do? Also, how do we know when it's finished, when do we stop? It doesn't say.

On the Wheldon Protocol I printed out it says one pulse dose every 3 to 4 weeks, then increase to 5, gradually, yet you say you started with 5?
Perhaps the protocol was amended because of your reaction? 

This is the toxins released by the killing of the CPn, correct?

You're being so helpful.

Thanks again.

best wishes,

Elizabeth

Well, the protocol was amended, but not because of my reaction, but of people coming later, who had so much difficulty in building up at all.  At this point I will add that metronidazole is generally speaking, the harder of these two imidazoles to take.

How many pulses did I take?  Well, after a year, I started on intermittent therapy, after having done nine or ten pulses, I think, then about another nine spread over three years.

Then I just stopped, and that was it!

Never had any problem with metro - seems it was the easiest of all the ABx's... (damn Doxy was the worst - always - stomach upset if not hydrated enough, the freakin' sunburn stuff, etc.)

Been thru two ABx stints (first one was for 18 months, and then after two year recovery, the last one was for 9 months)  and the only thing I noticed was each time during the first few seven day pulses every four weeks, the stuff coming out of my bowel movements were just plain disgusting looking (slime, lumps of white stuff everywhere, long stringy junk, etc.). Never any pain or other side effects...

We find consultations, we learn tricks with which we deceive ourselves, but the essential thing - the way - we do not find. Listen to the river...

Thanks for the information, Sarah and BatGirl. I know I've got some time to go. Sarah, for future reference (2020 ha ha ha), is there information anywhere about what the intermittent treatment is? 

BatGirl, we're all so different, eh? I find Doxy so easy I now take Azythromycin at the same time with no ill effects. However if I take multi-vitamins on an empty stomach I get really queasy... I get travel sick even on a train if I'm facing the wrong way...

Bye!  Best wishes,

Elizabeth

Hi Everyone,

It's now 2 months since I started Doxycycline and Azithromycin. I've had no ill effects and plenty of good effects.
I have more energy and sleep well.  Many little things that were wrong with me -- sore knee, shoulder etc -- have gone away. My drop foot seemed to get a lot better but has relapsed, so walking is a struggle.

I take multi-vitamins and minerals and pro biotics. In due course I will get the healing and recovery supplements as well, but not just yet. It's expensive.

Sarah, Batgirl and others, thanks.
Two friends of mine who have bad MS now know about CPN as well. They're thinking it through. You guys deserve MBEs.

Best wishes,

Lizzie

Ah now, the people who deserve the MBEs are the people who developed the protocols, but I think Stratton should actually be given an OBE or whatever the American equivalent might be!

Now, where was I two months in?  The first thing that happened was I got my seemingly much admired speaking voice back.  I was also starting on the path of being able to draw and paint again, after having been told that I would never be able to again.

I definitely got more energy and started to sleep better, but soreness I have never suffered from: David did though, and his vanished pretty promptly, even quicker than his high blood pressure and sticky blood, two more things which I never suffered from.

Lizzie, it might be worth trying to get a few more friends look into this.

Hi Sarah and everyone else who's well informed!

I've been taking Doxy and Azith for more than 2 months, and it's been fine, except my walking is not reliable at all. Everything else is superb.
The advice is not to start taking the Flagyl pulse until 3 months with Doxy are up. 
I'm nearly there and I would dearly love to get rid of CPn and start to heal. If I were to start a little earlier, 2 weeks, okay, 3 weeks, would it be too great a risk? 
Spring's almost here and I would so love to start thinking about long walks again. Even if it's not an immediate healing process it would do wonders for my positivity. Thing is, I'm looking out the window knowing I have to walk a mere 800 metres to the shop, and I'm putting it off as I know it will be hard.

Best wishes,

lizzie

Lizzie, though I somehow doubt that you will be able to charge about the countryside again quite that speedily, I agree with you about positivity, and knowing that you have had no trouble so far, I doubt if three weeks would be too great a risk. After all, I did a full five day pulse straight off and you do know that if you feel as though you have had enough after say, two or three days, you can just stop and call it your first pulse, which might be better than plugging on regardless.

Best of luck to both of you but please go gently at first!

ElizabethAnne, I started both doxy and azith on 06 October and began my first flagyl pulse some seven weeks later. Though I did have a bit of 'what have I done' after popping the first flagyl into my mouth right after Thanksgiving dinner, It all went remarkably well.

This was before we knew to start more gently, so feel free to take your time about working up to a 'full' five day pulse. The effects are cumulative and you might find yourself laid low by bacterial die-off if you push through a full pulse the first time out. Stop the pulse if you don't think you can do it. No shame in that. Next time, you do a little more, until you work up to full pulses each month. Trust your body and be mindful of what it's telling you to do (or NOT do).
