CAP vs Marshall Protocol

Has anyone compared the two protocolsi<
I have Myco Pneumonaie (not sure of C-Pneumoniae tests yet) and have been following the Marshall protocol for a feew years.  It appears that sunlight avoidance is no longer an issue and he does claim patients will go into remission in 2-3 yrs.
Too early to tell?
Anyone thought about it?
I am weighing my treatment options and don't mean to stir things up.
Be well all.

Hi Chris. I also tested positive for Mycoplasma P and supposedly the CAPi for Cpni treats this also. I am curious about the Marshall protocol. From what I have read about Mycoplasma P, it is a really difficult organism to eradicate--much like Cpn. Please tell us about the Marshall plan and what it entails.

What is the issue about sunlight avoidance?

And what ailments have you experienced that lead you to seek treatment?

Many thanks,


Dr. Powell's protocol for Cpn and Mycoplasma P since 08-05 for MSi and/or CFSi 

Feeling 98% well-going for 100. Very low test for Cpni. CAPi since 8-05 for Cpn/Mycoplasma P.,Lyme, Bartonella, Mold exposure,NACi,BHRT, MethyB12 FIRi Sauna. 1-18-11 begin new treatment plan with naturopath

I have CFIDSi and Borrelia according to the bowen test (everyone does) also CMV, HHV-6, Toxoplamosis and other co-infectionsi.
The Marshall Protocol ( uses Pulsed Minocin and Benicar (an immunei modulator ARB) at very low doses because the benicar enables the bacteria to penetrate deep into the tissue.  Later the patient adds Zithi and then Clindymycin and one more abxi.  These are all at minute levels compared to other protocolsi and Marshall claims patients will be CURED in 2-4yrs and will only have to do a yearly one week to one month "mop up" to stay healthy.
Most patients are doing very well, but it is slow going.  You can control the herx with the low dose abxi and the benicar.
He believes sunlight is a problem and interferes with the immune system and inflammationi (protecting the bacteria) but this seems to be only with the Sarcoid patients.
Alot of people who did pulsed flagyli with Doxyi etc.. are now on The Marshall Protocol.  Not sure about MS patients yet.
Be well everyone.

I would prefer that we do not get into a big discussion of the Marshall protocol here, as there is ample discussion of it elsewhere on the web. A thorough reading of his forums will give you a flavor of the tone of discussion there.
