And may I wish you a very warm welcome here ... from me and all us people here at cpnhelp.  Yes, it's nice to see you and even nicer to see you here.

This will seem very strange and different compared to where you've just come from.  Please do make yourself at home.  Take your time to read the post of real people; all of whom are just trying to get themselves well again.

May good health come to you too my friend!

A Journey through Light and Shadow

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.

Hi Thorleif,

Welcome!  You will find this forum to be full of very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable people - most of whom are going through what you are about to.  Their willingness to share the sometimes excruciating details of their personal journeys were what gave us (particularly Rick, my young son who has MS and is currently seriously disabled by it) - to find a doctor and try the CAP protocol.  

Here you will find a detailed explanation of the research and theory that suggests that CPN / Chlamydia Pneumonia is a cause of or greatly exacerbates MS (and other conditions) - as well as the specifics of the CAP protocols folks use - including supplements.  More importantly - you will find lots of personal stories of the struggles folks have going through the protocol - including the "die-off" reactions folks get that seem to be further progression at times - but are also frequently followed by regaining lost capabilities.

This forum is full of life - of courageous folks with vim, vigor - who are determined to try and regain their health - and fiesty enough to have spirited discussions and disagreements yet keep coming back to this forum for the support and friendship that everyone brings here.

Regarding finding a Doctor to treat you with the CAP protocol - here in the US it appears that Doctors of Osteopathy - who also treat CFS / Lyme and Figromyalgia - are more open to a treatment plan such as a CAP protocl for MS.  The "Physicians Page" at the top of the site is useful in helping to inform a potential Doctor too.

You have my best wishes and prayers for as smooth and complete a recovery as possible.

Best & Highest Regards,


Proud Parent of Rick - R started CAP in Nov. 13. Small measurable improvements as of 7/14, more by 10/14.  Holding Steady in early 2017.  "I will leave no stone unturned, no theory unexamined, to help my son." Tommi

welcome Thorleif, I am glad you made it here.  I wish you an easy journey. Ask as many questions as you need to and no question is stupid.  Start slowly and prepare for a bumpy ride but I am sure it will be wolrth it.
