Pinky has been working hard....

Submitted by Sarah on Sun, 2018-11-25 13:24

Pinky has been working hard over in Panjab this evening saving all the data before making the new messaging module live. The site is so heavy it always takes a long time. When the new module is installed, all the existing messaging data will be lost, so please make sure you save anything that has been built up since Kent dumped the first lot.  David and I have been trying out the new messaging on the clone site and it is much, much better.

The forum and everything else will be left untouched, so don't worry!

Growth of Chlamydia pneumoniae Is Enhanced in Cells with Impaired Mitochondrial Function

This may well have been posted before, and may not be new to the experts here. But its a detailed article and just less than a year old. Seems to very much confirm David Wheldon's and others' advice re: antioxidant supplementation, mitochondrial function, etc whilst treating CPn.

Most of the article is far too technical for our purposes, but ill post the abstract below.

I think it most likely makes a case for NAC quite strongly - i seem to remember reading how NAC can somewhat reverse mitochondrial hyperpolarisation.

Research and Images to be sorted.

I was just looking through the research pages to decide where to put some new stuff I had, when I saw that all the links lead back to the homepage: so more work to do. I thought it was just the Images page that was missing!

In the meantime, you might like to look at this brand new 2018 paper from China:

Ozone Therapy - Anyone Tried It?

Submitted by Erin1894 on Wed, 2018-11-07 15:12
I have an Integrative Medicine Doctor (real MD, but also practices Chinese Medicine) and he's the one who finally diagnosed my CpN. It took a decade of seeing so many specialists who simply scratched their heads. Anyway, this doctor offers IV Ozone Therapy. I've done a lot of research on it and it looks extremely promising. The drawback? It's expensive. His machine is called a 10-Pass, meaning it draws your blood up into a small, hyperbaric chamber where it's mixed with ozone, then pumped back into your body - ten times per session.
