Chlamydophila pneumoniae Infection and Its Role in Neurological Disorders

Chlamydophila pneumoniae Infection and Its Role in Neurological Disorders - this is a 2010 paper, but I'm adding it here, as I'm not sure whether it's been posted here before:…

Stratton's attachments

Submitted by pjdelambo on Wed, 2018-11-14 20:16
Sarah, here are the attachments Dr. Stratton sent. I want to know thoughts before I start the additional supplements as I have been sticking fairly closely to David's protocol - the additions would include Taurine, DMG, TMG, and choline Bitartrate. Dr. Stratton stated "I have attached a vitamin and supplement regimen that will help persons with chlamydial infections. It will help get rid of Chlamyida and prevent reactivation/reinfection. The key supplements are DMG and Taurine. See attached white papers. Go slowly at first as there might be “die off”. Thank you, Trish

Lycopene inhibits Chlamydia? Declining IGG after 30 days in vivo

Hi together,

i would be very interested what the more informed members here say to this research article?
Is that a revolutionary alternative treatment option? Or could this make things worse?

What do you think?!po=72.3214

Thanks and best regards

I’ve really struggled this year and felt thee cap hadn’t simply stopped working, but, was worsening my condition. It turns out that sacidophilus makes me exhausted and weak, just as NAC affects me!

i ran out of my usual probiotic before my last pulse andd felt that the cause of a uti. But the sample didn’t grow anything, although I was very uncomfortable. I bought acidophilus, because i didn’t need to mail order  it and i thought i was desperate!

i know it can be counterproductive for CFS, but, i don’t have CFS!  i wonder if it can, sometmimes, be counter productive for CPN.

Dr Paul Thibault - current position on the role of CPn in CCSVI and MS

Submitted by hwebb on Mon, 2017-11-27 16:08

From CCSVI / CCSVO specialist Dr Paul Thibault :

The concern I have is that people (medical doctors, patients, and the general public) will become disillusioned by the many studies (including Zamboni et al), which refute the use of venoplasty to achieve a "cure" for MS. Zamboni has highlighted the connection between MS and a chronic venous disease, which I appreciate. However, since 2011 I have suspected his theory that venous obstructions cause demyelination (due to iron-deposition which accompanies vascular reflux) to be incorrect.

Cpn Antibiotic Resistance

Submitted by Paul on Fri, 2017-01-13 17:53

Both Hammerschlag and Stratton observed in their research that Cpn appeared to rapidly develop resistance against antibiotics. Hammerschlag noted that she searched gene databanks for known resistance genes but found no matches. I also spent a great deal of time searching the Genbank using BLAST and also found no matches to any known resistance genes. Nonetheless apparent resistance is always noted during in vitro experiments with antibiotics. All antibiotics that Cpn are susceptible to cause an initial die off of greater than 90% of Cpn. This invariably levels off and there is little die off after the first 24-48 hours.
