Astaxanthin

Here is a fascinating paper entitled “Neuroprotective mechanisms of astaxanthin: a potential therapeutic role in preserving cognitive function in age and neurodegeneration.” Link: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5352583/<  The complete paper is available as a pdf. 

Astaxanthin supplementation sounds a good idea.

Hello, I am new here, suffer from CF and need advice for CAP

Hello everybody,

After much exploring and reading this very informative site, and after much thinking and hesitation, I have decided to finally make my debut on here.

I have been suffering from Chronic Fatigue syndromei since being a teenager in the late 1980’s, but have only been diagnosed in 2011.

Pulse #41

Hi folks, pleased to say that Terri completed her 41st pulse yesterday, improvements are still coming slowly but more importantly they are staying with us.The pulses are much easier now but it is still apparent that the Tinni is still doing its job. Tiredness and extra inflamation during or after pulsing is now down to just a few days and is so much easier to cope with.

Link to DW's herpes simplex theory

Can anyone tell me where the entry, pith the link to David Wheldoni's piece, coming down to his conclusion that chickenpox is not causal in MSi?

Thanks

Jane

also, I realise I've posted too much! Sorry!

We shouldn't blame the ABX!

So strange to say that feeling dreadful, nauseous, weak and tired, as I do today, reminds me that I'm only four months into CAPi, but haven't felt this way since I began, whereas I often felt this way previously!  I have drunk alcohol, although not much, and have been to several functions, involving a bit of travelling. Maybe I'm being'Pollyanna-ish, but isn't that better than the alternative?

Pulse # 43

A couple of hours ago I popped my first tinii tab of this, pulse 43.  When this strip of tinidazole is finished, that will be my last tini pulse; I have no more.  I have a box of 21 metronidazolei that I brought back from Spain latest autumn. If I do decide to pulse after that, I'll pick up some more metro when I'm in Madeira.

I am currently still taking rifampacin. That supply is due to run out in October too. It'd certainly be great if I could look back then and say that I am now fit.  Being realistic is no fun at all.

Froggy:

First pulse

Two tabs more and my first pulse is done! I've been lucky,  although I may not be, in future! I've been, a little, nauseous, I've been tired, but not horribly fatigued, as before, my remaining sight has been dreadful and my, already dodgy, leg turned to lead! And I've laughed at It all! I have also felt invincible! Doing something positive is so much more empowering than just allowing MSi to do its worst! CPNi is cruel, self-worth is powerful And good!

I took 2400 mg of NAC for 3 weeks, before I got a monster cold....could that be "NAC flu"?

Hi.  I took 2400mg of NACi for 3.5 weeks without any symptoms, flu like or other.  Then WHAM.  I got the mac daddy of colds (and in the summer).  Major runny nose, sneezy, congestion....but no fever of any kind.  

The last time I had a cold was 6 years ago.  

Could this have been a delayed NAC flu reaction?  I ask, because it seems like most people noticed symptoms almost immediately after taking NAC.  It took me several weeks, and it's possible it was just a legimate (and long overdue) cold.

Metronidazole

Half way through first pulse and stomach is unhappy... abdo pains, gas, urgent need for toilet,  softish stools(but still formed)...   

Also headaches... and feeling punched in face with eyes trying to pop out(sinus?)

lack of appetite, feeling poorly HR up...

Def harder than tinidazole...

Pulse 32? 1st Metronidazole... 28th full 5 day

Well there is a country wide shortage of tinidazole... no solid eta... so... I'm starting my first metronidazolei pulse...  Should be interesting...

Ummm missed a few... perhaps 25-31? or was it 30?

Not sure if I missed one or plugged on...

So I'm up to either 30 or 31 pulses with 26 or 27 full 5 day pulses...

My excuse(poor I know) is that I caught some terrible respiratory infection in early new year... Took me weeks to stop coughing and breath well again...

Over 3 months. - your experience?

it's been more than three months and I start the third ABXi next week. Overall, I feel OK, but my heat intolerance and functional weakness / dropfoot.iinmy left leg, seem worse. What are other people's experiences, at this stage?

For people who are toxic

One of my struggles as I worked towards wellness was that I continually 'Herxed', but actually I was really just very toxic and overloading my excretion systems.  After 3 years of trial and error and much suffering I have found the key to this toxicity.  Apparently I am a genetically super sluggish detoxer - not a good place to be.  Everything that makes you better makes you worse.  I found this presentation by Dr Chris Shade, a mercury detox specialist, who maps out the whole detox system so that you can get each part working in sequence so that you don't re-tox yourself and do more damage.

Big Win

Hi, everyone.  Since there's nothing much going on here (though there's lots of work going on behind the scenes to update our site), I thought I'd tell you a little story.

After a lifetime of fighting what I thought was chronic fatigue, a bout of optic neuritis got me an MSi diagnosis in 2005.  As most of you know, I did the protocol for six or seven years.  Within months, I knew it was helping, when NOTHING had helped up til then.
