You are likely to see a new influx of Fibromyalgia people seeking help here, as my story was published in www.remedyfind.com Fibromyalgia newsletter. You can find it at http://remedyfind.com/newsletters/Nov_06_FMS.htmlIt will be also published in a week or so in their Chronic Fatigue newsletter, so look out!The site owner has tried to put the CAP into their rating system, but it throws everything else off. Right now, the best thing is to join up there and rate seperate antibiotics on your CAP for your disease(s) an include a comment "When used as part of a Combination Antibiotic Protocol (CAP) for Chlamydia pneumoniae as described in www.cpnhelp.org" which should take care of it.I encourage you all on the CAP to join there and rate your antibiotics so people with your diagnoses can see this approach as a possibility. 

Jim,  This is a wonderful development for the CFS/FM community.  To read your story, I took on the mindset of one who is uninitiated and grappling in the dark with an unknown demon.  Your presentation was clear and concise, gave the correct impression of your thorough knowledge on the subject of Cpn infection, and carried with it an authority of one who knows the experience of illness and has found the path that leads out of the maze.  Excellent job!  Where do I sign up?Joyce~caregiver-advocate in Dallas for Steve J (SPMS) / Mpn, EBV, CMV; strong indications of Cpn; elevated heavy metals / On Wheldon CAP since Aug.

 Great article, Jim. I am giving it to everyone I know who suffers from fibromyalgia and/or chronic fatigue. Unfortunately, I don't find people as open to the"cure by CAP" as I wish they were!Started CAP in June 2006 for treatment of brain fog and memory issues, allergies.

On CAP from June 2006 to July 2008 for high blood pressure, nasal allergies, restless legs, memory and cognitive problems. On intermittent CAP from July 2008 to August 2009. Currently: using RIFE Machine and under treatment with a Naturopath, symptom free

Thanks, all, for your comments.
