Adult-onset asthma in Illinois

I have adult onset asthma.  It has been getting progressively worse over the past couple of years.  It started about 4-5 years ago.  I have taken prednisone, albuterol, pulmicort, flovent and singulair.  It seems to get much worse in the winter although I have it year round.  Has anyone used the Hahn protocol with success?  I don't know which one I should try.  Does anyone know of doctors in Illinois who use the Stratton/Wheldon protocol?  This winter my asthma has been at its worst.  Please help with any information. Thank you so much.  Jacqui Hansen

 

New Patient in Atlanta

I'm new to this.  I recently started CAPi about 3 and a half months ago.  I found a pulmonary doctor in Atlanta that listened to me and is allowing the Wheldon CAP protocol.  He advised that while this is not main stream thinking, he is willing to let me try it, so I commend him for that.

I have not noticed any real notable improvement so far.  I think I feel better but this may be more psychological then physiological.  I am just starting the Flagyli part of the treatment and am anxious to see if any results.

Podcast on Cpn by Two of the Major Chlamydial Researchers

A very good podcast on Chlamydias by two of the top researchers in the area, Elizabeth Stuart and Wilmore Webley at UMass. They discuss the relationship to cardiac disease, some relationship of Chlam T to cervical cancer, and both Chlam T and Cpni to asthmai in children. 70% of pediatric asthma patients they tested have Chlamydia, with sexually transmitted version and respiratory version (Cpn) at about 50-50. Very important work.

What Is Really Ailing Me??? Please Help!

After years of weird symptoms, hundreds of doctor visits and medicines that do absolutely nothing for me...........I finally come across this site. 

A little history......I've been diagnosed with adult onset asthma 2 years ago.  This was the final symptom that really got me bothered.  Can't breath, serious problem!  After several tests involving my lungs, all came back negative for any form of serious illness.  The weird thing was, all the asthma meds I tried did nothing for me.  I have survived this long by the grace of God and herbals.

Chronic Chlamydia pneumoniae infection and bronchial asthma: Is there a link? Agarwal A,

I forgot I had asthma!

I took the dog for a nice walk along a river trail yesterday, about a 45 minute walk. It wasn't until I got back to the car that I realized I hadn't even thought to take my inhaler with me! I went a whole 45 minutes engaged in a normally asthma-enducing activity, and didn't even think about it! That may not sound like much, but for those of you who have been ill for a long time you know how your illness is always there in the back of your mind, affecting everything you do, and everything you're even considering doing, even if you're not consciously thinking about it. Before I engage in any physical activity since I've had asthma I have always had to briefly go over my mental checklist, at least subsciously:

1. Do I have my inhaler with me, on my person?

Antibiotics to be available without prescription

This is the news:  In England, possible antibioticsi to be sold over the counter, to treat CHLAMYDIA!

This is the story form http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2008/aug/06/health

Oral antibiotics are to be made available for the first time without doctor's prescription under guidelines approved yesterday by the medicines regulator.

A pill to treat chlamydia, the most commonly diagnosed sexually transmitted infection, will become available for purchase in pharmacies across England later this year.

I rode my bike without using my inhaler!

I just got back from a half hour bike ride. I finally got the nerve to exercise without using my inhaler beforehand. I got a good workout, making sure I was breathing heavy the whole time to give my lungs a good test. They work! I made it through the entire 30 minute ride without my chest tightening up. No coughing and wheezing! Just normal heavy breathing from exertion but without struggling for air. Six months ago I would have been wheezing and coughing up a storm within 5 minutes of trying that. It felt so good to have air free-flowing in and out of my lungs and know it wasn't the albuterol making it possible!

Long Term Benefit Questions

hey everyone...  first, i am still a little confused as to if i should post a blog or comments...  whats the difference?  i am still trying to get use to navigating this site...  i do appreciate all the feedback..

Great news!

I followed up with the allergy/asthma doc today. Lung function is improving after just 1 month on azithromycin!

Five weeks ago he tested my lung function at it was 81%-84% of normal without asthma medications. After albuterol he would test it again and it would improve to 92%-93% of normal. A week later (4 weeks ago), just before starting azi, he tested lung function again and it was pretty much the same.

Today he tested my lung function and it was 98% of normal! And this was without any asthma meds! So my lung function is better now without albuterol than it was before azi with albuterol. That is significant!

ATP and low CD4 counts

first off, thanx again to everyones comments, this site can be soooooooooo informative! 

JUST started CPN protocol

wow, i dont know where to really start without saying HELLO first.  its been a LONG 8-10 years of being sick, seeing MANY physicians, and thousands of $$$ later before i really have some what of a guide to getting well.  to just give you a BRIEF summary of my illness, i worked for a poultry processing plant for >10 years and @ the time did NOT think it would cause such heartache, but in a educated hindsight, it created my current condition.  prior to working there i was ENERGETIC and full of life.  well, because it was SUCH a subtle deterioration i didnt put my finger on the enviornmental toxins until 2-3 years ago.  some of the few things i contracted while working there was eczema, asthma, fatigue, brain fog, dry skin (my skin had always be sooooooo oily) among other things.
