Taurine

Body

Has anyone had any luck trying taurine and/or the other supplements that Dr. Stratton recommends for cpn?

Comments

Jean

my daughter in law Sonal has been taking 1 gram taurine each day for last month and a half. But maybe she should up the dose. I dont know.No adverse effects.

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.

Hi Neena,

Thanks.

Has she seen improvement?

Does she take the NAC, choline, DMG, and TMG with it?

I haven't tried it yet. I am waiting to hear what others say about it.

I think I have a severe case of cpn,in the brain which I got about 8 months ago (Oct. 2018).  

I have a lot of issues with depression, balance, eyesight, ear and teeth problems.  Most important, I have brain shrinkage, and some strange symptoms of that. Does anyone share these issues?

No No improvement on taurine but Sonal has been taking it -- small dose-- from the beginning. She hasw yet to start pulsing so no improvement was expected. But seems that the rapid deterioration has somewhat stemmed. It is so hard to say with MS for there is no known expected course the disease follows. So cant say becuase of abx and supplements or otherwise.

She does take NAC but what are choline DMG and TMG? For all this rely on what David Wheldon has suggested. Go with what Sarah advises you. Sonal started taurine after mentioning this to Sarah ( who I think takes a bigger dose but hers is post the abx course)

Take care

Jean, we both take about 3 grams of taurine a day, on Stratton's recommendation. We started this a few months ago. I'm not sure how much my recent improvement is due to taurine mixed with the biotin, or just the high dose biotin which I have been taking for longer.

Apart from 1000mg of NAC, I don't take any of the other things you ask about.

I am almost about to complete 3 months of the protocol, time for me to start my 1st pulse of metro. I have many questions but I look forward to your help and support:

1. I am currently taking roxy and doxy together in the morning; how should I add metro to this regimen? One dose along with the other two abx or shall I take this completely separate? Do I need to alter my regime in any other way? Shall I be taking a probiotic 2 hours after each dose of abx? 

2. At the moment, physically, I feel no difference from when I started on the protocol - no improvement, and no deterioration.  I believe the walking the the last to improve, not expecting a miracle there. Sometimes, just when I have woken up in the morning, I am able to stand unaided for a few seconds and it thrills me no end.

3. I have discovered that my yoga and massage are very important and although it is a struggle at times, I am making every effort to be as regular as I can be.

4. I had put myself on a self imposed diet of no gluten, no dairy. I have been cheating quite a bit in the last 2 months. Do anyone of you also follow a strict dietary regimen? 

5. Of late i have noticed a swelling in my right foot; should I be overly concerned (movement is more restricted on my right side due to MS)?

All your stories are very inspiring and I hope you all continue to improve.

Warmly, Sonal.

 

 

Morning Sonal!

Yeay- it feels sooo good to finally get the pulses going doesn't it!?!

Before I started the protocol I decided to do a vegan diet myself as a way of helping healing my body by elliminating inflammation causing foods. Im quite knowledgeable re foods and nutritions from past experiences, trials and lifestyles so cutting out certain elements like meat, sugar , processed food and dairy was easy but then began the re education of vegan foods and supplements for that incl ones for this protocol. Its all a personal learning curve and trials to see what works best for you. Having realised the importance of B12 for ex and the lack of that in vegan food I chose to keep fish and shellfish part of my diet as I still really like it and could never forsake proper sushi either haha! I upped the B12 by lots more too. Here in UK there so many vegan options that I could use instead too. So not having probiotic dairy yoghurt I found great vegan versions etc. Im still sticking to this way and it works fine with the family too as they get the normal food and I just swap my part to better suit me or we all have vegetarian/ fish dishes together.

Re pulsing. I found it really overwhelmed me with tiredness and far worse condition every time until this 5th one Im doing currently. Id have naps and go to bed earlier as felt shattered. Then I rethought all and started drinking 1.5 liter water every day to flush out toxins and bacterial overload. I started taking daily dose of activated charcoal every night 2 hrs past any meds/ supplement intake to bind the die off bacteria and rid of it. I went to bed earlier regularly. I paced myself better and rested up better during day and between chores. I still persisted in being normal and do washing, hanging laundry, cooking meals, making beds, taking kids to activities however hard it was and still is for muscle memory purposes and health of my mind. Just need more rests and I choose my battles better. I hired a weekly cleaner which Ive never had before and I have my weekly food shop delivered now so I can rest up. Im plodding along and in between having a peaceful calm life I also regularly go out with my girlfriends for regular cups of teas or breakfast/brunch for catch ups, banter, whinges and much laughter!!

I recently upped my activated charcoals to 2 tabs rather and it seems to work better for me. Maybe because I didnt start with it from the very beginning?!

I also started with Doxy, Roxy and Tini in one mouthful first thing in the morning with pulsing after a small breakfast but now Ive eased up and choose to take Doxy and Roxy first thing after breakfast and Tini after dinner in the evening as that way my energy is up for when I need to care for the kids and by the time theyre getting to bed Ive got all evening and night to be tired during and rest up with no chores. Time planning has become an artform haha!

This my 5th pulse is the first time I don't feel super knackered too so fingers crossed...

You will find your way Sonal and best of times to you!💖🌻

Thank you before anything for this reply, I will

keep referring to it when do actually start the pulsing. You are so right, have to figure it out also along the personal learning curve...good to know about your vegan diet protocol. I do think inflammatory foods should be avoided in General, but do allow myself cheat days and don’t overobsess ! I still have to figure out which option to go for between Trini and Metro, lets see!

activated charcoal is something I don’t take right now, but am thinking of starting...

take care and be well enough to accomplish all that you have / want to.

till later

Sonal

Sonal, if you will be taking metro, I seem to remember that I took it in three doses a day, but with the other abx and any other supplements that didn't include probiotics or calcium. After a few pulses I changed to tinidazole, which I split into two doses a day, but eventually took the entire daily dose in one go.

I never followed a strict dietary regime. Stratton's initial recommendation was for far too much carbohydrate, so I ignored it. I did at first not drink at all during a pulse, but eventually found that the one glass of wine I drink in the evenings I could cope with.

Be careful though, because many people have to cope with this:

Hence another good reason for pulsing, rather than taking it continuously.

I am confused bet metro and Tini.

i guess easy availability will decide. Why did you switch if I May ask ? Did you not take probiotic and calcium at all or just kept a safe distance bet abx and them?

yes will give up on the glass of wine too during the pulse, haha! Why take a chance?

Will also br sad to give up again on my favourite curd 

thank you Sarah! Will keep you posted on the symptoms...

Sonal, I switched because tinidazole is not so tough to take as metronidazole, which would make me tearful within the hour. It was still under patent when Stratton brought out his protocol and so was much more expensive, so he didn't use it.

Probiotics and calcium are rendered useless if taken before your stomach has finished with them. With most people, things pass through their stomach within two hours, but if you have a very slow metabolism, wait longer.

As for wine, I saw David having a drink one during his pulse and he said it didn't affect him, so I tried judiciously. This was after my fourth pulse, I think. But Sonal, your pulse will only be five days!
