I finished my 7th Pulse of the Cpn Protocol yesterday (Friday, August 30th). This pulse was five (5) days of Tinidazole which worked well with everything else going on in my life. 

Psychologically, I only had one day this week where I felt my emotions might be affected by the Tinidazole… I was a bit weepy at the end of that day (but it could have also been a tiff I had with my daughter). I just don’t know. 

Overall, this pulse was pretty good. I had some minor fatigue, but still managed to do full days and do my rowing --Yea! I also am taking Serrapeptase (200,000 FU) and Nattokinase (2,000 FU) … I am not sure they help or hinder the Cpn protocol, but they do help with my chronic congestion! In a couple of weeks, I am going to stop the Nattokinase and start a trial of the Lumbrokinase while keeping going with the Serrapeptase. 

I continue to take full doses of all B-Vitamins all the time. But I feel that extra Methylfolate and Methylcobalamin … and Riboflavin (B-2) are especially important for me to maintain good energy during the pulses. 

I also continue with all other support supplements listed in the protocol. For gut health, I have added one capsule of Lycopene which I synergize with some very lovely dark chocolate (some research suggests they are good as a pre-? pro-? -biotic).... Anyway, it tastes great. I still take some plain yogurt every night with a handful of probiotics and herbal capsules for gut health. 

I am still taking Activated Charcoal at night… that’s if I don’t fall asleep first. It is a very important tool in the Cpn protocol, and I continue to doggedly try to get it into my system. 

Sleep has been generally good. I do have mild hot sweats… Is it the Cpn or Menopause or both? I don’t know. I’m just grateful they seem to be tapering off. 

I have actually sewn more in the last week than in the last month… mostly mending for daughter going back to college. And my rowing is getting better---I am increasing the tension and feel muscles building slowly. 

Scleroderma: Small improvements continue. I see small ripples/breaks in the solid surfaces of my thighs. I can feel lines/indentations in the excess collagen. For most of my life, my thighs have been a solid, hard, almost inflexible mass… couldn’t indent with fingers… Now, it’s becoming softer and almost (not quite) pinchable. 

Ankylosing Spondylitis: No pain. Some very ephemeral soreness/stiffness getting out of bed in the morning, but this quickly dissipates upon moving around. No pain is great! 

Psoriasis: (only on elbows): I am really chuffed about how my elbows are looking. They would probably look gross to anyone else, but I have watched the thick, red, darkened scaly skin areas grow smaller and smaller. They are my visual barometer that the Cpn protocol IS working. Hot Dog!

Congratulations on making it to the 7th Pulse.  I completed 22 pulses (followed by a number of "maintenance pulses" while my flagyl lasted) before I could do a pulse and not have any "die-off" symptoms.  This is a race that truly does go to the tortoise, so take your time.

CAP for M.S. 8/2007 - 3/2009.  Twentieth pulse metronidazole + INH completed 3/12/2009.  Intermittent treatment thereafter until 11/20/2009.
