Cycling off all antibiotics to avoid bio films???

Hi guys,

After months of searching I finally found a doc who is familiar with cpn and its treatment.  His practice is dedicated to chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia patients and he has been treating these diseases as infections for years. So far so good, except he cycles patients off of all antibiotics for a week. So after a week of mino and flagyl, you come off everything, including NAC. He said that they (he mentioned dr Kilmas) have found that bio films become a major problem if the patient stays on the antibiotics continually. 

Has anyone heard of this? It makes me very nervous because it's contrary to everything I've read over the past several months. I also feel sick after being off of antibiotics for 3-4 days (low grade fever and fatigue is crippling). I started self treating back in April and felt like a different person after a few weeks on antibiotics, I'm so scared of sliding back.....

 

I, too have been talked into biofilm fiasco.As far as I remember, theory of biofilms makes a lot of sense. Look up ILADS. Lots there. More confusion??????????????

Being an intracellular pathogen, cpn isnot affected by biofilm pathogens...............................Sarah

Connie, I know you don’t have MS but you can’t go far wrong by getting the doctor to read David’s site: www.davidwheldon.co.uk/ms-treatment.html  I know he doesn’t mention biofilms but that is because he doesn’t see them as being relevant: the most important thing is to getrid of the infection and you don’t do that by continually stopping and re-starting the antibiotics.  I think that if I had done that, I would still be taking the antibiotics now, in the hope that they would eventually work! ……………………………..Sarah

is nitroxoline a good biofilm lung med?  I can't exhale at all with asthma which started 2 months after I tried the weekly amycin.  I'm on an asv for severe sleep apnea also
