I believe I've been cured from my illness...

Body

It's been a long time since I've posted on this site, but I wanted to circle back to tell you all that my problem has FINALLY been diagnosed correctly and now I'm much, MUCH better. I travelled to the National Jewish Health hospital in Denver, Colorado (the #1 respiratory hospital in the US) back in October of 2018 and again in February of 2019. After many tests there, they discovered my problem to be Acid Reflux, a weak trachea and a hiatus hernia. The acid in my stomach was traveling up form my stomach into my airways.

Great news!

Dont know you but great to hear you have been cured! I am the loner from India on this site as my daughter in law started the protocol for MS just under two months ago -- a long way to go but at least she is on the road to recovery, hopefully.

Best wishes

I am 76 years old. My daughter-in-law was diagnosed with MS and we are all very keen for her to start this new antibiotic treatment. We hope to be able to do this in the next couple of weeks by finding a doctor willing to deal with any issues like reactions that may crop up. My daughter-in-law is 43 years old.

I have been an active poilitical journalist most of my life and have felt for a long time that there must be a cure out there for MS which the medical community has largely ignored. I am very excited by the Wheldon protocol.

That is very good news Bernie: stomach acid and your airways are not bosom companions!

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.

I now take Nexium, use a CPAP machine at night, and have elevated my bed. I have been symptom free for four months now. I am still on Xolair, ADVAIR (which I hardly need or use anymore) and a 7% saline nebulizer.

All of these treatments may be dropped in the fall if my condition stays improved.It's been a long 6 years with this problem which went improperly diagnosed for all that time. The Asthma and Pulmonologists missed the possibility of Acid Reflux/GERD...National Jewish Health found the real problem, to which I am forever grateful to their health team who worked on my case.

I thought I'd share this breakthrough with all others who may have adult onset of asthma without any previous history of allergies.

I did Bernie, but it went away with CAP luckily. The MS took much longer. Yours sounds much worse, with more complex underlying causes.
