Buhner Protocol after relapse

Submitted by lleach on Fri, 2016-10-07 00:54

I haven't posted anything in a while. I thought I had got on top of CPn and that I just needed to build up stamina. Unfortunately, a few months ago, I had to face the fact that my post-exertion malaise was getting worse. I tried 600 mg of NAC and had a reaction. It took me a couple of weeks to get back up to 2400 mg per day. I am in a transition period with this. I was a patient of Michael and Dr. P and with the closing of their office I had to decide where I was going next. After reading about the Buhner protocol, particularly in the 2nd edition of Healing Lyme, and being a believer in herbs, I decided to give it a try.

Pulse #35

Yes, I have been through the wars recently.  Through most of August and nearly all of September, I was not well at all.  I had a little theory that running out of probiotic capsules allowed some sort of fungal overgrowth. All just a theory.

"Our study demonstrated that the use of probiotic capsule for 12 weeks among subjects with MS had favorable effects on EDSS, parameters of mental health, inflammatory factors, markers of insulin resistance, HDL-, total-/HDL-cholesterol and MDA levels."http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S026156141630214X"In a cross-over trial of subjects with suspected NCGS, the severity of overall symptoms increased significantly during 1 week of intake of small amounts of gluten, compared with placebo.

Pulse #34

Hi All!I haven't posted and I haven't posted an a fair while. I wasn't very well throughout August and I'm still trying to recover now.I'm at least three weeks late in pulsing and have become even more lax at posting. I'm due to go away on holiday in just over a week's time, so am keen to be a bit more well by then. Anyway, I started a pulse earlier on today and I had my second tini tab of this pulse a couple of hours ago.I have a few tasks in hand which I have been neglecting due to lack of energy, but I will post a piece from a SupaGuy perspective in the coming days.

When start with the 3rd Abx?

Submitted by claudiap on Wed, 2016-09-21 06:54

Hello all of you, I'm writing as I need your advice...I want to start with the 3rd Abx, but I' m not sure, when there is the right time for it. I started end of April with Doxy, some weeks later with Azi. Each time I felt a deterioration, so that in the meantime I cannot lift my right foot as is should be, going is very hard. Now I wonder what will happen, when I start with the 3rd. I decided not to take Metro, but Tinidazol , here I got the info, that it should be "softer". I read so much in this forum that I sometimes do not know anything.

Desperateůy ůooking for AUREOMYCINE

Submitted by euchrid on Sun, 2016-09-18 06:16

Hello everybody,so im still fignting with the intraocular infection by Chlamydophila felis. The quinolons prescribed by czech doctors didnt help at all and im still goinng blind. Im neraly completeůy blind now ?-(((A biochemist and a catr lady, who has been through this disease, told me that quinolones dont work well inside the eye, either. And the best treatment for tzje feline chlamydia is Aureomycine, but must be used both systeemically (perorally) and topucally as an eye ointment, One without the other doesnt work, either, . Chlamyydophila felis is often laso compltely resistant to Doxycycline, which is probably my case.

Taking a break

Hi there,After suffering from gastro distress for many months, which has severely impacted my quality of life, I and my doctor have agreed that it is time for me to take a break from antibiotics.  We will decide if I return to the protocol when my gut heals.  In the meatime I will keep taking NAC and I am doing my best to adopt Terry Wahls' ketogenic diet.I will still be cheering for everyone on the protocol!  May you have more success and less discomfort than I experienced.Best wishes to everyone!

cap and h. pylori

Submitted by Alfy87 on Sat, 2016-09-10 18:54

After a year on CAP using flagyl / biaxin/ doxy I started having seriouse throat issues..Went 9 months like this. I thought the antibiotics had created chronic gastritis. My throat, heart , chest.. All were burning.I never checked H. Pylori as being the cause. After all I was using same antibiotics used for this parasite. Life was hell.Asthma was gone but acid was killing me.Had an endoscope. I had amazingly h pylori infection.I have been reading that H. pylori can be resistent to flagyl and biaxon.2 days into amoxycillon and tetracyclin and I am getting ok and much better.Carefull people. Longterm cap probably kills good flora and allows resistent strains of h pylori to thrive.keep an open eye to this possibility.
