multiple cpn diseases in one family

This morning I read an article in the New York Times about alopecia:

http://consults.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/07/05/ask-an-expert-about-alopecia/?ref=health

There is one person with alopecia (Wilifred from Seattle) that states:


I would also like to know how this relates to other autoimmune disorders. I have a sister with MS, Mom has RA, my brother and I have IBS, and I have asthma and allergies.
 Is this not the ultimate proof that all these diseases are caused by cpn?They have infected each other.

 

I was too quick to submit. There was more.

Andy (9) has Crohn, Sjogren, Interstitial cystitis and chronic fatique.

Debbie (68). Her mother had alopecia and later MS.

Retired MD PhD Urologist; very much interested in autoimmune disease

Thank you for this and for your acceptance, understanding, open-mindedness, and willingness to realize that the medical practitioners are not done collecting the answers to humankind's malfunctions.  My own father was comparable in his attitude - but I have four sisters who probably all have this bug (two have MS - one of which is an RN, one has chronic bronchitis and one has Rosacea) and will not even LOOK at what we are doing here.

It is nice to have a knowlede that cpn is known to be envoled within families. My mother was a school teacher and was infected by chronic bronchitis and cough.

She also had high blood pressue at a young age and stroke at the age of 53. I also noticed some Cfs symptoms, as she began to miss more days from work.

started Wheldon cap 4/21/08 for Cpn, CMV, EBV, CFS. Cap hold 4/09vascultis. Restart 9/09 with Dr.Powell, restore gut, 4000 D3, supplements,  Pos. Bartonella and Babesia, Rifampin 600 mgs and Biaxon 1 gram. 

Cpn in families...One of the doctors I worked with briefly told me that the Cpn is believed to sit in the ovaries and that it can be passed on to one's chidren. I think there may also be a certain amount of exposure among family members where one is infected, that can ignite a Cpn infection in those who are susceptible. There are also genetic susceptiblity issues.

The way I describe this to people is: cpn manifests itself differently in different people. In some, cpn presents itself as MS, in other it presents as chronic sinus infections, rosacea, chronic fatigue, etc. The one common thread, though, is cpn.

The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems. Mohandas Gandhi

We had links to a study showing cpn infecting whole families, especially those exposed to farm animals. The people had a wide range of diseases resulting from cpn infection. http://www.cpnhelp.org/latent_chlamydial_infec_0

minocycline, azithromycine, metronidazole 2007-2009, chelation for lead poisoning, muscle pain, insomnia, interstitial cystitis (almost well), sinus, dry eyes, stiff neck, veins, hypothyroid, TMJ, hip joints (no longer hurt)

Everybody, also remember, I had alopecia at 15 years of age, MS diagnosed in my 40's. I have 2 grown children, both having endured ulcerative colitis and both treated under the table ,so to speak ,with antibiotics and infused with strain of bacteria cultured out of Germany.They remain well.CPN remains to me as the only one that makes sense so I pursue!!I also believe CCSVI would and could only work once CPN was tried in earnest.Genetics figure in all .

diagnosed MS Jan.2000 ,  chronic neurological lyme disease Nov.2002.

doxy 100 mg. 1BID. roxy.150 mg.? BID,adding rifampin soon, pulsed tini. every 3 weeks, as of oct.17/08, rifampin,naltrexone (LDN),NAC, nystatin, major wheldon supplemrnts daily,

I have said for years now that I caught cpn in the womb. My mother had chronic bronchitis and psoriasis since she was a child and had a bronchitis attack while pregnant with me. This was eventually followed by rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis. My father started going downhill after age 80. The cpn has manifested itself as fibromyalgia, severe insomnia and brainfog. He has had sinus problems since childhood and we both have IBS. But my brother is fine! He escaped!

PPMS-misdiagnosed 2001-diagnosed 2006. Probably caught cpn in birth canal but it didn't pass BBB until my 40s. Minocycline 7 mos.- resulting bronchitis 5 months.Go to private m.d. out-of-plan. Wheldon CAP 3/2/07 Stopped 12/12; resumed 12/13

Hello everybody, I'm new here and very excited to have found this forum. My mom has diverticulitis and interstitial cystitis, my sister and I both are Hashimoto. I'm starting to ask myself if we could all be sick because of CPN. Has any of you been diagnosed with IC and have followed up with some recomended tests from this web site? Someone out there cured of IC after following this protocole?

I always pondered that link too.

I have MS, that was brought on by a 3 week respiratory infection prior to my initial relapse. I've also suffered from endometriosis since age 12 - which is classified as an auto-immune disease too.

Apart from my looonnggg medical history, my family is quite healthy.

I have a cousin suffering with Crohn's disease who I'll convince to take a Cpn test.
