I am able to email full text of that first paper if someone needs to read it for purposes of, as they say, private scholarship. Its an impressive outcome, one of the most impressive in print re abx treatment of non-understood immune disease.

Dear Eric

I am very interested as I have had osteoarthritis, mainly affecting my knees, since I was 40 years old -- now 76. Somehome I have kept going with a bit of exercise vitamin D and calcium and some other supplements but want to try CAP now. My email address is I would love to read the full paper.



I am 76 years old. My daughter-in-law was diagnosed with MS and we are all very keen for her to start this new antibiotic treatment. We hope to be able to do this in the next couple of weeks by finding a doctor willing to deal with any issues like reactions that may crop up. My daughter-in-law is 43 years old.

I have been an active poilitical journalist most of my life and have felt for a long time that there must be a cure out there for MS which the medical community has largely ignored. I am very excited by the Wheldon protocol.

Neena, this post from Eric Johnson was in 2006:he hasn't posted here for years and years!

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Just wondering about people with arthritis, what if its is C, trachomatis that ies the cause, will CAP work just as good as for Cpn?

Diagnosed with MS on March 2009, started CAP on Jan 2010. Doxy 200mg- Roxy 300mg- NAC and all major supplements.
