Day1 of pulse 7 and, so far,  i can feel the abx! Which, i guess, is a good sign!

But, in truth, i wanted to post about vitamin B12, and, strangely, just saw Rica’s  response to a different post,, mentioning her intake of it.

I first contacted David Wheldon after learning how similar the effects of pernicious anaemia are to MS, including demyelination! I was sure I had it and that the blood readings saying my levels were fine were wrong. All my paternal relatives had  or have it, and, based on symptoms, such as my Nana going totally white haired, at the age of 14,  think it was in my maternal line also, but DW was the only one saying i could have it too.  I followed his advice, tp take 20,000 mcg, sublingually, per day.and, within a week or two, felt, almodt, normal. Talking to my step daughter about her severe respitory problems, which she doesn’t believe are caused by asthma, i had a ‘duh!’ Moment and re-started the huge B12 doses. Within days my orthostatic hypotension, which had become unbearable, is gone! My brain is clearer and my drop foot re hugely improved And so much more!  I’m sure my MS is real and responding well to the protocol, and I know most cappers take the B12, but i want to encourage everyone to be aware of B12 deficiency and Iron deficiency anaemia! I wonder if the abx are more efficient now as I am having more severe symptoms from this pulse.  Also, next time you pass a woman with a face like a biscuit, say hi, it could be me!

Chuck Stratton has found that in chronic C pneumoniae infection antibodies can form against B12. This effectively stops the vitamin crossing the blood-brain barrier and thus one can have a CNS deficiency of B12 even when blood levels are normal. His recommendation is to flood the system with B12 (in the methyl form). Sarah and I did this with good effect.

 

Jane — I’m so pleased that you are having good experiences.

David, that is so interesting!  And I really am doing well! If i hadn’t asked your advice i wouldn’t have known about B12 at all , that’s the reason i felt confident enough to follow your protocol, and I thank god for that!  it’s also the reason i was drawn to Sur la Crevasse, which is where we alll are! I know you don’t want to be PM, but how about running the NHS? Or Arts and Culture?

MS symptoms from 2001, DX RRMS in 2008, following, a change of hospital who sent me for an MRI, precipitated by some sight loss. Took Interferons, on and off. Prescribed  chemo infusions to slow pro

Jane, that is all such good news, for you anyway: do you think that you may at least be able to get your step daughter to take soe of the supplements?

Now, about my anaemia: I used to self dose on a good quality iron supplement bought from a health food shop: not the sort you mostly get fro the GP, which is bright red and makes you constipated.  My periods got so bad that the bleeding lasted naerly all month, so I eventually went to my GP, who tested me for anaemia and was surprised I didn't have it.  I told her it was because of what I was supplementing myself with.  I had a hysterectomy the year before I was diagnosed with SPMS, so no more bleeding but after my diagnosis, David suggested some B12 injections.  I had one course then dropped out and bought sublingual tablets, because I could take them every day and I didn't end up with an armful of scabby bruises given by one of the practice nurses who was no good at injections.  Also, the injections weren't methylcobalamin, which isn't licenced in the UK.  If you have a neurological disorder you need the best B12 you can get and you need to take it every day to my mind, rather than once a fortnight.................Sarah

Hi Sarah, i use B12 tablets or liquid, simply because i can’t find a different supply, but it is good. Also, i never take iron from the GP, simply because u gphave previously and, you’rw right, it is blody awful! my periods weren’t ever regular, but always heavy, except when i take Heme and B12! that tells me my body is healthier but, now I’m 50, i really don’t want them any more!  

But, the really good news is that my step daughter is taking B12! I hope she will then come to the CAP, but i won’t badger her as I don’t want to turn her away. Slowly, slowly catchee monkey!

Jane, I decided after abandoning GP jabs, that tablets of B12 were just as good, plus by taking at least one every day, you would never go through a fatigue patch whilst waiting for the next injection. 

Do make sure that you always buy methylcobalamin though, because although much more expensive, the body has increased absorption and, better retention in the tissues, whilst the naturally occuring methylcobalamin, aswell as containing no toxic cyanide molecules, supprts an increased supply of SAMe (S-adenosyl methionine) which is the body's most important methyl donor.

I had the hysterectomy when I was in my mid forties and still hoping to manage to get pregnant, but the stopping of blood loss nearly all the time, and the sudden loss of pain, I must say was wonderful........................Sarah

I am new at this, and am trying to make sense out of the CP. So far what I am understanding, what is behind so many so called Auto-immune diseases, is just CP!! Or is it? Friends, I am not sure, but am very excited to start the Dr. D. Whelden's regiment soon.,,,,,,,,,,  It would be for the PPMS. Anyone any thing want to tell me now before I start, please let me know. I am pretty anxious!

This is very new information to me, and I want to read more about it.

 

You are right in your assumptions there: auto-immunity is just something plonked on many ailments when doctors can't think of any better reason to say about your illness.  That is not to say that true auto-immunity does not exist: it does.  Eventually a disease like MS might well become auto-immune, when nothing seems to help recovery.  We seem to be showing here that most people at the very least, are able to stop the disease progressing, though.  I wish it worked for everybody, though.
