Recommended Supplements and Adjuncts to CAP's

Recommended Supplements and Adjuncts to CAP's

Supplements and other treatments are considered essential, not optional, when using CAP's. They are important to counter secondary porphyria symptoms, counter the endotoxins from Cpn die off as well as the cytokine inflammation, protect the vital organs of the body from Cpn toxins, and help provide the elements need for the body to rebuild and regenerate cells lysed (killed) when the Cpn infecting them is killed.

David Wheldon's website contains vital and important discussion of many of these supplements and should be basic reading for all using any of the CAP's.

Charts covering the supplements are available in this section to help organize the handfuls of pills that go along with thee project.

B12 - benefits and methods of administration

B12 - benefits and methods of administration

B12 information Through the research carried out by members we have collected the following information on the benefits, forms and methods of administration of Vitamin B12. Sarah I looked up B12 patches http://www.b12patch.com/product.html It is cyancobalamin, not methylcobalamin, which is what I take sublingually. Cyancobalamin converts to methylcobalamin in the body, so it seems sensible to short cut the process. If you suck the stuff it is absorbed in the mouth or oesophagus, so doesn't come into contact with stomach acids. I used to have B12 shots, but the burst of energy didn't last, so I started taking tablets every day which seemed more sensible. A patch gives you 1000 mcg of cyancobalamin a week. At the moment I am taking 4 x 5000 mcg of methylcobalamin a day and I am certainly feeling the benefit. Plus I quite like the taste....... I use either Source Naturals or Jarrow formula 5000 mcg of methylcobalamin B12. The first is smaller, the second I like the taste of. The difference is, I have taken to use 4 a day, just as an experiment: http://www.cpnhelp.org/neural_ectoderm_and_my_ha Not everyone might want to see how long they can grow their hair, but it works for neural ectoderm as well. You just need to suck the lozenges, or munch them up and swallow the small particles. If they are absorbed anywhere before they hit the stomach, the effect will be the same, according to DW. I used to laboriously suck them and take an extra one if I accidentally swallowed one, now I save money by not bothering.. 2.5 micrograms is the recommended daily dose for normal people. Everyone, apart from vegans, is almost bound to get this with a normal diet. Everyone here, not just people with MSi need much more than this, but unfortunately most neurologists seem to be rather vitamin challenged so it was never even suggested to me. My GP offered me weekly shots of 1000 mcg of cyancobalamin which did seem to give me a boost for a few days. Being a water soluble vitamin, I reckoned that I needed it every day, so started supplementing in between times. Eventually, because I hated going to the surgery so often, I stopped and relied solely on supplementation. I don't personally think that a patch supplying 1000 mcg a week of cyancobalamin is enough for someone with MS, but like me and my weekly shots at my GP's, you could always supplement as well, but that's kind of defeating the object plus costing too much..... Mark B12 Products - There a number of cheap ways to get sufficient B12 and it is a matter of personal choice and how much you want to spend. Some basic info: 2 microgrammes a day of B12 is required daily (one thousand microgrammes is one milligramme). B12 is important for nerve support. 1% of a sublingual tablet enters the blood stream under the tongue (this is achievable for most patients, some will do better). B12 is water soluble and any un-needed B12 is excreted. Products available include:Lozenges (fancy name for a suckable tablet) of 1mg to 5mg give plenty of B12 and are cheap. Choice is often around product flavour as this is important for ease of use. Patches - easy to use but a lot more expensive than the oral products. Microdots - 500 microgrammes - are very cheap and as they are very small, so should be easy to keep under the tongue, until fully dissolved. Liquid (5mg in 5ml) for people who don't like tablets under the tongue. Injections give an immediate boost in B12 levels but are no more effective than the oral products for on-going supplementation. So make your choice and pay your money. Lexy As an aside, we have found a sublingual that is 5 MG. For those metrically challenged (that's me) that is 5000 micrograms. This has worked quite well as evidenced by Jim's B-12 blood levels which are quite high (1500)-a good thing that pleased his doctor very much. At first - early in treatment, Jim actually took one tablet three times per day and achieved one B-12 blood reading of 1900, now he only takes the 5 MG once under the tongue per day. The brand is Source Naturals Methylcobalamin and we have bought it at both Iherb and Vitacost for a very nominal fee. I don't know if it is better to spread out dosage throughout the day, but for convenience this 5 mg sure has helped.

Can someone help me with my schedule for treatment?

Can someone help me with my schedule for treatment? karen b Tue, 2006-09-05 11:42

We have starded the treatment last week. We found a really nice doctor in are nebeirhood that has accept to prescribe the treatment (antibiotics). the only thing is that I'm the one that has to make the schedule of when to take what. It is a bit overwelming for me. I dont whant to make any mistakes. the protocole is in english and some time's, I am worried that I dont understand the right thing (I am french) we live in Québec, canada. So to make sure, I would appreciate some help. This is the schedule I made, hope it's find. If not, please tell me, and help me with the next step. I included the other medication's that was already prescribed and should be continued as are doctor suggested. Thank you in advance for your help!!!! It is very appreciaded!

B12 the 2006/08/30. Next one in a month. Going to start azithromycine next week (monday-wednesday-friday) for 3 weeks. what is the next step? (I dont whant to understand something wrong because I am a frenchy hi! hi! hi!Karen b for my dad "Pete" and who know's, maybe me in a while (that is another story) 

I am by no means an expert, and I had the exact same question as you in the beginning.

Most people divide the supplements into two doses a day so your Dad wouldn't have to take pills so many times per day.  One thing that I see missing is acidophilus to replenish the good gut bacteria the antibiotics will destroy. Acidophilus should be taken at least two hours after any abx. Finally, many find it easier, especially when adding the azithromycin, to take the two doxys at once.

Here's a sample schedule:

Breakfast: 7:a.m.-Doxy with breakfast

               9:a.m.-Vitamins/Acidophilus

Lunch:      12:p.m.-more Acidophilus

Dinner:     5: p.m.-azithromycin (every other day)

                7:p.m-Vitamins/Acidophilus

Bedtime:   Melatonin              

I would, if you haven't, print out the Supplement Chart available on the home page of this website.

Hope this helps

Karen, I will list my schedule as simply as possible - with am coffee - about 6:30 - 7:   acidophilus, magnesium, acetyl-L-Carnetine, "super" b-complex, vit C, glucosamine/chondroitin,  vit D, alpha-lipoic-acid, sub-lingual B-12, a multivitamin-mineral, calcium, B 6, folic acid, 2 - 600 mg NAC, Co enzyme Q 10, fish oil..  Two hours later I take  200 mg Doxycycline and Azithromycin  (if MWF)   After abx I wait at least an hour before eating.  In the afternoon or around dinner:   acidophilus, vit C, glucosamine/chondroitin, vit D, alpha-lipoic-acid, sub-lingual B-12, calcium, B 6,  2 - 600 mg - NAC, Co enzyme Q 10, fish oil, selenium, vit E.  If it is flagyl time I take the 1st with am pills, 2nd with afternoon pills, 3rd at bedtime.   Bon voyage (or suitable salutation!)

In 2 weeks I will have been on this protocol for 2 years   3 weeks of these abx is only long enough to send these "bugs" into hiding.

Hi Karen,

Here is what Ella started on, it is a bit different now, she takes CAL/MAG as one preparation for example.   This is the most efficient way we found of handling things, mainly because now that Ella is looking after herself it has to stay simple...

Combined Antibiotic Protocol for Chlamydia pneumonia in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome & Fibromyalgia- Currently: 150mg INH, Doxycycline/Zithromycin, Tinidazole pulses. Northern Ohio, USA

Hi Karen, here is my list of supplements, many things combined so you don't have to take too many different items. It is good both for beginners and people wanting a maintenance schedule. In between times many people are going to experiment somewhat. They all come from the same place to make ordering easier and from a very reliable company with good quality, good dosages and very good prices.

You can take most of them at any time you wany, but take care not to have the cal/mag too close to the doxycycline - leave about two hours between these. Also take the acidophilus as far apart from abx as you can manage. Take both doxycyclines together early in the day, with azithromycin on M/W/F, then the day is yours. When flagyl/tinidazole is started, it will be a little more difficult, but that is only for a few days at a time.......Sarah

Hi, i have'nt started the protocol yet as i have only just found out about it and i still have to find a receptive doctor (which i hope to do today). The protocol from where i am sitting (have to legs for most of the times are wheels not the brum, brum kind the manual ones) seems very daunting but i am excited about the prospect. I am also very glad i found this web site as i am sure i will need a lot of help and support.

Hi Jen.

I hope you are lucky with your search for a doctor... I know that you have MS, but others won't until you add a signature statement at the end of your post.   You can do that by going to your profile and editing it.   At the bottom of the page you will find a window in which you can write something about yourself that might make it easier for us to understand your questions.   As Rica says, we are good listeners here and most of us are either undergoing the treatment of helping someone that is.   I am both...

What a great thread! I study my hubby's list of supplements, and ABX, and wonder if he's taking things at the right time...

I try to spread his vitamins out over the day, so he doesn't have so many to take at once. But, most people take all of theirs at once? I guess the body absorbs them okay when all are taken at the same time?

Thanks all. Best wishes.

Jen, Put your pointer over the little " i " next to the word and you will get a little definition of the word or abbreviation. abx is antibiotics, agents used to kill microorganisms. You're not ignorant. We all had to learn as we went along...

My comment addresses only the initial list of meds, particularly the sleeping meds of '2mg of Klonopin' and 50 mg of Elavil or Amitriptyline (a maximum dose to be sure). I'm sorry, but that's a serious dose of both drugs! I would be afraid of doing that. Anyone taking that dose of both of those drugs must be nearly comatose in the morning, especially with the lag on the Elavil? And 2 mg of Klonopin is double the typical prescription. I would suggest seeking an assortment of milder OTC supplements, cutting both of those doses in half. This comment is based on my own experience, and, of course, your results may vary.

The list you refer to is not the standard CAP for the treatment of Cpn.   This is the individual schedule of a very sick man whose symptoms were being treated before he started doing the CAP.   The operative word here is schedule, his daughter Karen was having trouble administrating the drugs in such as way that they would be most effective.   It is important for instance not to take probiotics at the same time as antibiotics.

Each person's treatment is different, most of us do the CAP in much the same way, but our list of other drugs and supplements might be different depending on which other symptoms our doctors are treating us for.   Examples of the standard CAPs and supplements can be found in the handbook here and here.

I found out I have Cpn and don't understand very much. If it has caused my memory loss and tiredness, will treating it undo the damage? What if someone gets a disease such as M.S. or Alzheimers from this CPN? can you reverse it? What IS the treatment for cpn? I am a bit freaked out over this... Also, is this a lifelong battle or can you actually rid yourself of all the CPN? Thanks for any help, Lolo

Welcome Lolo, Look to your left on the screen and click "blog entry" under the heading of "create content." Then please make a new blog to introduce yourself and tell us what's going on with you in more detail. When you're done, click "preview" below the message box and check your blog. You might want to click "enable rich-text" and "input format" to select a format that cleans up the presentation a little better. When it looks satisfactory, click "post" or "submit" below the message box.  You will receive responses to your questions, but the responses you receive are no substitute for reading the handbook and patient stories (see the clickable buttons at the top of the page).  The reading may seem dry and long, so take it in bites. That's the best way for you to truly understand chronic Cpn infection, a CAP (combination antibiotic protocol), and what you can expect.  If it seems daunting, read "Advice to Non-Medical Newcomers" listed in a box at the left of your screen.  Again, we we are happy to answer your questions, but read, read, and re-read too.  Taking small bites works best.
