Doctors in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia ?

Hi all,

I've only recently discovered this information about CPN.

 I have asthma, it's not particularly severe, but it effects my life and has been getting worse instead of better, despite ever increasing medication dosages.

I went to a doctor about the connections between asthma and CPN and he seemed open to looking into it. I directed him to this site so he could do some reading and went back to him a week later. He didn't seem particularly convinced but agreed to prescribe me some Azithromycin and Doxycycline. The dosages didn't follow any of the recommended treatments but I thought if I tried it out and had a reaction then I could go back.

After taking the Azithromycin I noticed my asthma symptoms were noticably alleviated, so I finished off the Doxycycline course and went back to the doctor.
He then told me he didn't believe that I needed anymore medication because what he had prescribed me was the standard treatment for the STD Chlamydia.
I tried to explain the lifecycle of CPN but he dismissed this and said he'd prescribe me one more lot of Azithromycin but that he would not give me anymore.

I was quite disappointed as I'd thought I'd managed to luck out and find a good doctor on my first try.

After this I went to my regular GP to see if she would be open to treating my asthma with the CAP, but all she asked me was "Is it mainstream? I won't do it if it's not mainstream" so that was a no go.

  I noticed on this blog - http://www.cpnhelp.org/blog/peta - that a couple of Melbourne people had posted of doctors that were open to it.

The blog is over a year old but I'm hoping someone still has that information, or can tell me of other doctors they know of in Australia (preferably Victoria) that I could see.

 Any information appreciated! Smile

 

Hi sleep,

Keep trying, keep reading, and keep asking. Take NAC and the supplements and get your Vit D3 level up.

 Dr Geoffrey Kemp 681 Burke Road CAMBERWELL VIC 3124 is an open minded GP. He has treated patients on Marshall Protocol and McPherson Brown protocols etc. I believe he has 20 years experience with abx in chronic illness.

But be warned, he is very different and may not be what you may expect from your local GP. Image removed.

 

Good luck

Be mindful, though, that this protocol is pretty much the antithesis of the MP, and our doses of abx are VASTLY different. If he's a proponent of the MP, might there not be some difficulty getting him to go with this protocol?

Here is another GP. He is into integrated medicine and is a member of ACNEM. Hopefully that would indicate his willingness to think outside the box which is really what we are looking for.

NowI have just read not to post doctors names on this forum but unfortunately am unable to work out how to send private messages. If someone can advise me I would be really grateful..............

Click on the member's name. Scroll down a few lines on the member's page, choose 'write private message'. Write and send. Piece of cake. (Like everything else, it's easy, after the first ten times you do it. Image removed. )
