Keeping a Lid on Cpn

Submitted by raven on Sat, 2016-07-09 16:36

Hello again,

just checking in this month. I have been really busy extracting myself from my teaching job. I retired and I'm finally free. Now I will have the time to take better care of my health. Had some Cpn testing done earlier in the year and levels have been rising. I did a few rounds of Ivermectin and it cut the testing amount in half but Ivermectin only goes after the elementary body form of Cpn.

I have several bottles of abx left over in my big bag of prescriptions. I might try to do a Tindamax pulse after I finish the Ivermectin and see how it goes. I know for sure, you cannot ignore this organism. Working as I did with so many sick kids in my classroom, I'm sure I was being exposed to many bad bugs all the time. Now that I am out of that environment, I want to clean up the mess.

Be well,


You've done an amazing job of educating yourself and fighting the bugs up to now, Raven.  I'm looking forward to the next chapter.  Congratulations on your retirement!  More time for art!!

Raven, congratulations on managing to extricate yourself from your school in one piece:  I will be looking forward to seeing what work you now produce!  Teaching is not the healthiest of professions, both junior and high schools, but you have managed even with the extra weight of MS and the resultant cure.........................Sarah
