Looking for Clinical Herbalist / Buhner Protocol.

Submitted by TheresaC on Fri, 2016-09-02 10:04

Hi All,

I am looking for a Clinical Herbalist who has been trained in Buhner's protocol. I live in New York, but am fine with working with someone long distance via Skype or telephone. I have an appt. with Julie McIntyre - Buhner's partner - but not until January 2017, and I'd like to get started now.  I've called a several other herbalsts, but either haven't heard back after a couple of tries or they are are sabattical.

Thanks so much for any referrals / recommendations you may know of. 

Be well,

Theresa

I thought I had a stroke with terrible bell's palsy, blindness, hearing loss, head numbness, tachycardia of 125 and am wondering if I have Lyme's with CPN coinfections?  there's granuloma in my lung and I can't even exhale after being on amycin weekly for 6 weeks

Ruthless1 - former member

For the elders here on the board, and those who may remember her,  Ruthless1 passed away on January 29, 2015.   It appears her lyme manifested into a brain tumor which was discovered late last summer. 

She was always positive, always heartfelt and sincere.  She even invited me to spend time with her at her home in Arizona.

I was deeply saddened when I read of her passing. She was a loving, caring, funny, talented woman of strong faith.  She will be missed by many.    

Rest in Peace, Ruthie.....

Hello,

I am from India, 23 years old. Recently diagnosed for MS.I don't know what is inflammation (MS), nothing happened overnight.I had problem of balance, walking difficulties and urine incontinence.My Doc(neurologist) asked me for multiple test including CFS,MRI and put me on steroid for 5 days. Except urine incontinence, I am free from all symptoms. MRI shows few lesson in my brain and spine. Doc was quick to conclude it MS, asked me to start the medicine (Interferon, Avonex etc).

I am not ready to puncture myself through out my life and injecting poison. I am fortunate enough to come across this site.

Cpn test results - how serious?

This is my diagnosis - does anyone know how serious these levels are? Thank you.

Chlamydia pneumoniae antibodies

Chlam.pneum.-IgG-antibodies (ELISA)+ 1.9 Ratio <0.8=neg.;>1.1=pos.

Chlam.pneum.-IgA-antibodies (ELISA)+ 1.7 Ratio <0.8=neg.;>1.1=pos.

 

The specific Chlamydia pneumoniae-IgG- and -IgA-antibodies are an indication for an

actual humoral immune response against Chlamydia pneumoniae. Please look at the

Chlamydia-Elispot-LTT for the actual cellular activity.

 

Chlamydia pneumoniae Elispot LTT

Chlamydia pneumoniae-Elispot LTT + 5 SI < 2

The result of the Elispot-Lymphocyte-Transformation-Test (LTT) is an indication for

Cpn testing

For anyone needing this information - blood testing for Chlamydia Pneumonia is no longer available in Ontario, Canada. To my knowledge, the most complete test is offered in Ausburg, Germany, as they offer the Elispot LTT in adition to IgG and IgA tests.

Lyme disease

Submitted by melly on Sat, 2014-09-06 18:47

Hi, I have just been diagnosed with Lyme disease and am wondering if the CAP treatment for Cpn will also do th trick for Lyme?  I have been on the abx treatment for Cpn coming up to 11 months now, just hoping I won'y have to add anything further due to the lyme diagnosis.

Thanks :)

CAP for Lyme

Submitted by Arttile on Mon, 2014-08-18 14:27

What I have never understood about this protocol is this:

The protocol is tailored to fit the lifecycle of c.pn. Is the life cycle of the tick-born diseases the same and similarly vulnerable?

Isn't it possible that while we use CAP for c.pn. other pathogens that happen to be in our bodies may develop resistant strains?

C.Pn. Co-Infection Info

Submitted by Louise on Thu, 2013-12-19 07:08

Well many here over the past 7 years or so have discovered that they have more than one chronic persistent bacterial infection.   And like most things there are many ways of thinking about this situation.

What to treat first, how agressive to treat, how consitentently to remail on a particular protocol etc etc etc.  

Early on I was fortunate enough to actually treat for chronic and active C.Pn. and in beginning treatment for than in a much to agressive fashion (before I learned as much as I havce about C.Pn.) I reacted so strongly to the die off that I found this information on this amazing website and tested postitive for Bb (Borellia B or Lyme Disease) which is also very unlikely to give false negative just as C.Pn. often does.
