I was diagnosed with adult onset asthma in 2003. About 10 months of having this new health issue, I started taking doxycycline for another health issue. I noticed my asthma went away while I was on the doxy. I googled and found Jim Quinlin's story and he referred me to Dr. Hahn. My doctor would not prescribe 3 months of antibiotics but I was able to get ahold of 2 1/2 months doseage. I was asthma free for 12 years. In 2016, I noticed I had slight asthma when exercising. I spoke with Dr. Hahn and he suggested I take doxy for 6 months. I also questioned that in 2014, I started having joint and muscle pain in my arms.
Cpn Protocols Compared
Hello everyone, I'm from Poland and my uncle (who can't speak English) is in the IGG phase of chlamydia and he's after the first series of antibiotics. For six weeks he had been taking metronidazol +Doxycyclinum + azithromicinum. Now he's supposed to wait two to three weeks (break) and then start the second series of these antibiotics. Has anyone ever done it? And if yes, was it helping? Any positive effects? My uncle is wondering if he should take the second series of this antibiotics or should he stop this treatment.
Thanks for any help.
Greetings from Poland.
Just this morniing David Wheldon has updated his treatment page on his website:
The updating concerns the availability of roxithromycin, which was the only macrolide I ever took.................Sarah
Was wondering in D W (or any other microbiologist on the forum) could provide any advice around the Redhill CAP formula when used to treat Cpn.
It does not contain NAC or a tetracycline...so could it eradicate the Elementary Body (EB) and Reticulate/Replicating Body (RB) lifestages of Cpn effectively? I guess the formula does contain rifabutin, so would suppress the conversion of EB to RB.
The formula seems like it would hit the Cryptic Cpn lifestage hard.
thanks in advance,
Is anyobdy here familiar with CAP treatment for bacterial brain infections (c pneumoniae)?
I have a lot of the symptoms of neuronal hypoglycemia and serotonin deficiency (loss of athleticism, fatigue, difficulty in thinking, loss of concentration, loss of pleasure, impaired cognition). Symptoms completely improve when i'm on zero-carbohydrate diet. Symptoms also improve when i highly elevate my blood sugar.
Since about 1 year ago, i follow the Perfect Health Diet, written by Paul Jaminet.
I'm looking for some feedback for an appropriate timetable for dosing up on medicine, for the "Emerging Stratton Protocol" which uses a dose of calcium pyruvate 1hr before each dose of tetracycline (like minocycline), macrolide (like roxithromycin), nitroimidazole (like tinidazole)...and ultimately a rifamycin (like rifabutin). The way the protocol is written, it looks like you need to stagger the dose of each antibiotic?
I'm looking for a recommendation of a lab to determine my levels of Cpn, to keep in line with Dr Stratton's suggestion to "continue to monitor titers every several years". http://www.cpnhelp.org/emerging_stratton_protoco
I am based in Australia.
My current lab only provide info as to whether the following are postitive or negative or borderline:
My understanding is that the Vanderbilt lab closed down.
I'm seeking some advice regarding CAP protocols.
Did somebody used hyperbaric oxygen therapy or have some info regarding this therapy, as additional or alternative at standard antibiotics therapy ?
