Bacterial brain infections

Hello folks, 

Is anyobdy here familiar with CAPi treatment for bacterial brain infectionsi (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. 

He states: 

"Positive changes in brain function during ketosis suggest that the brain isn’t functioning normally when it relies on glucose as a fuel. There are several possible causes of this, but one is a bacterial infection."

And

"Doxycycline is a good first antibiotic; it enters the brain well and is active against C. pneumoniae. The response to doxycycline also has diagnostic value. If you don’t have an infection, usually there is no obvious effect to the antibiotic. If you do, there are usually clear effects, either good or bad."

Which CAP is the appropriate protocol for me? I haven't tried doxycycline yet, but i'm trying to convince my doctor to prescribe it for me. Would it be the Wheldon protocol? Does someone has some sort of schedule for it? Or more info/helpful links? 

Any answers or help would be great!

This site is about the CAPi treatment for Cpni. Therefore...yes...of course...we are familiar with it. Please read the handbook. I would suggest the Wheldon potocol. The answers are in the handbook. Look for the handbook links on the page.

Hi Jen,

Thank you. I read the Wheldon protocol handbook again and understand it a little bit better now. I'm new to this website so some things are still a little unclear.

I was just wondering: What is the difference, considering the duration time of the treatment, between someone who's using the Wheldon protocol for MSi in comparison to someone who's using the Wheldon protocol for clearing some sort of bacterial brain infection?

Is it possible to eradicate some sort of bacterial brain infection with the Wheldon protocol in let's say 3-6 months?

No.  Too many people come here and look for some way to shorten the treatment.  Just no. 

If the infection has crossed the blood/brain barrier, you need the very specific medications here that will cross the blood/brain barrier, too.  And you need to continually drive the bacteria out of the cells they hide in, then kill them (by pulsing the third antibiotic), repeatedly cycling that pattern over and over until you've killed it all off.

In three to six months' time, you are scratching the surface, nothing more.  If you've read the handbook and/or Dr. Wheldon's site, you know this treatment is a MINIMUM of a year, and probably longer.  Length of treatment ultimately depends on your genetic make-up, how your disease is manifesting itself (which 'disease' you seem to have), where the bacteria has invaded, how well you tolerate the medications and supplementsi, how seriously your follow the program...  Everyone is different and no one can tell you how long it will or won't take.

The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems. Mohandas Gandhi

What Mac said.

What type of bacterial brain infection are you talking about?  All the people here with MSi would say that MS is one of them.  Meningitis is another, but this treatment would not be much use since the septicaemia which the infection can cause will kill you within a day.

I took this treatment for MS for one year full time and then three intermittent, but some people need to take it for much longer, as Mac says.....................Sarah

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MSi in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Incidentally, Dr Paul Jaminet is not a medical doctor but an astrophysicist...........................Sarah

As you have seen most of the people here have either MSi or CFSi.

From reading the different forum and blog posts I've won the impression that people with CFS -  like myself-  tend to have a longer treatment course.

Unfortunately also with more side effects from the ABXi.

Last weekend I've finished my 9. flagyli pulse and the days before this pulse where the first in which I've noticed a clearly improvement.

This week obviously not so Cool

What Mac said.  There are NO shortcuts to this endeavor.  You must completely understand the protocol and be thoroughly committed to push forward for as long as need be.  For some it may be a bit shorter than for others.  But it is always a long term therapy.  It is most definitelt not for the faint of heart.

 
Started Vanderbilt protocol 1/9/08  Rifampin once a day, b12 injection monthly , vitamin Di 50,000 IU weekly

Hi Loriyas

About your B12 injections

What type of b12 do you use?

Do you give them to yourself?

Where do you get it ?

Why only once a month?

Two times a week might be better

Thanks

DAILY:  NACi 2400MG , DHEAi sublingual , vit D3 , multi vits,./ Three times  a week: B12 injections (Hydroxycobalamin). Deer antler./  Once every few months methyl B12 Methyl injections

Agreement here - you will never get too much B-12.  I take 30,000 units sub-lingually EVERY day.  It ia to help repair myelini.

3/9 Symptoms returning. Began 5 abxi protocol 5/9 Rifampin 600, Amox 1000, Doxyi 200, MWF Azith 250, flagyli 1000 daily. Began Sept 04 PPMSi EDSSi 6.7 Now good days EDSS 1 Mind, like parachute, work only when open. Charlie Chan  In for the duration.&am

Hi Rica

What do you use sublingually?

Thanks

Methylcobalamine - over the counter.  Easy.
