Dianna did a one-year CAP for GERD, rosacea, high blood pressure and several other complaints, all of which started approximately simultaneously. This CAP ended nearly a year ago at this writing.
The GERD and high blood pressure are still gone. Today, after walking from the parking deck into the clinic, it was 113/75. The GERD returned briefly after she had general anesthetic for an unrelated condition, but went away after about two weeks.
The rosacea was completely gone at the end of her CAP, however, it has rebounded slightly. A doctor involved in the treatment of the unrelated condition took her off "all that funky stuff," including NAC, so. . .
She didn't want to argue with him. She had a benign brain tumor removed in November, and she's fine (except for a couple of blind spots in her lower right field of vision (she can still drive, nonsense to complain)). However, if the brain tumor doctor says "No NAC," and your rosacea comes back, "brain tumor" wins.
So, she looks a little chapped at times, but she can drink a glass of wine without "flaming on" and the current flushing may be due to the general anesthetic. (Hair loss, generalized itching -- that stuff is poisonous, you know? Still, very glad we have those poisons available!)
If it is not due to the anesthetic, well, she'll have to decide about how to approach the rosacea. She seemed to find the CAP itself relatively easy to tolerate. A couple of the first pulses showed a worsening of the GERD, but that went away after the first few pulses. She pretty much ate whatever she pleased through the CAP -- porphyria wasn't too troubling to her. She did end up doing a course of Diflucan for yeast/fungus afterward. The probiotics just weren't enough.
So, bottom line:
GERD -- gone.
Hypertension -- gone.
Rosacea -- better, but may need further attention
Migraines went from 3-4 per week down to one every couple months. Bonus!
Results like that are well worth the mild discomfort of the first few pulses, and a course of diflucan to follow up. The funny thing is, none of those conditions have any other effective treatment, as far as I know.
