Kaiser Permanente Patients?

Has anyone been able to get Kaiser Permanente to treat them with a CAPi? I've been trying for years. I have convinced several Kaiser doctors that it would be in Kaiser's best interest and mine to put me on a CAP, but they have all been too afraid of Kaiser management to actually do it. Three Kaiser doctors have used my COPD as an excuse to put me on antibioticsi for a month or longer. Clarithromycin produced spectacular results at first, but the benefits didn't last. I had poorer results with azithromycin and cipro.

obesity, diabetes, or heart disease

I was wondering whether anyone, after starting a CAPi, had seen any changes in their: - Weight? - Type 2 diabetes? - Heart problems? Thanks. Russ

It turns out the rental place didn't have a tutu in my size...

You have to read the last paragraph of my March 2011 posting for the subject line to make sense.

It was another recordbreaking day in Dallas.  The people who say global warming is a myth had been strangely silent for more than a month as temperatures climbed to levels that even the residents of Phoenix or Tucson would have found uncomfortable.  Worse for the Texans was that the humidity had not dropped to desert levels so being outdoors was like being slow roasted in a convection oven.  The deteriorating asphalt of the parking lot outside his neurologist's office that he had skipped across like a frog jumping between lily pads at the time of his last visit had melted in the heat and looked almost new.   

It was early in the morning...

It was a dark and stormy night....  Well, in this case that's literally true.  We've had no moon, but lightning and thunder with no rain.  It's the kind of weather you would expect at the start of a gothic horror movie. 

Seeing yet not Perceiving

Bulwer-Lytton prize, here I come!

It was unseasonably warm for an early March day, even for a city like Dallas whose inhabitants in July and August considered it to be Hell's waiting room.  He walked across the deteriorating asphalt of the parking lot and into the first-floor office of his neurologist thinking that in a few short weeks, it would be almost warm enough for the parking lot to melt and the chunks of asphalt to fuse together in a new pattern. 

Family member with heart disease--how to test for CPN

Being a chronic Lyme patient myself, I have familiarity with stealth/bioweapon infectionsi, and know that 

the tests are usually pretty bad. What would be the best way to diagnose CPNi, and how hard is it to find a doc who's willing to treat it?

As hard as it is to find ones who treat Lyme??


Thank you all so much,


I have M.S. but its in remission?

Got the results of my latest MRI today.  The radiologist report said that in comparing with the previous MRI (January 2009) there was no change in the number or size of the lesions and as in 2009, none of them were enhancing.  

Every other person I know with M.S. is deteriorating but I'm getting slightly better and the doctors won't believe me that the antibioticsi had anything to do with it (even - as with my neurologist - they ask me specifically whether I have been taking them).  

If there is any downside to the CAPi, it is that without it I would probably be retired on disability by now (and due to a quirk in the way they changed our retirement plan at work, the disability annuity is slightly more generous than regular retirement).   

What you leave behind

I last completed a maintenance pulse in November 2009. 

I had my annual visit with the neurologist at the medical school in Houston in January 2010.  EDSSi now "about a 2" versus the "about 2.5" it was in January 2009.  As he considered my progression (or lack thereof), he asked whether I was taking antibioticsi.  I told him none since November 2009 which left him scratching his head since he can't account for my "atypical progression".  (For the record, I previously discussed antibiotics with him and he dismissed it since he is of the belief that M.S. is caused by a virus).

Cpn may cause CCSVI?


Vitamin K

Last spring I added Vitamin K complex to my list of daily supplementsi.  My primary motivation was as an adjunct for bone health, because on a regular basis, I simply was not eating enough dark green leafy vegetables.  

Recently a list of research articles has broadened my perspective on Vitamin K's diverse possible supportive functions in the body. 

I wonder how many here might be supplementing their Vitamin K levels.  It seems that this could be a relevant discussion as I looked at the titles on the list or research articles.


Niacinamide why is it used and how does it help?

   Has anyone used Niacinamide?  I heard it can help with poor circulation. Would like to hear from anyone who has used it and it's effects.


journey to wellness update

I thought it has been some time since I gave an update to my progress. As I sit here trying to write my update, I feel disappointed in myself that I have not pulsed and moved forward with more improvements.

It began with elevated blood pressure and chest pressure and then I started having difficulty in walking. This made me conclude I have some kind of vascular issues that were getting worse on the antibioticsi. I started with Diovan as need for when my blood pressure was out of control , but then my feet started turning red and blue.

fibrin and brain fog

As the months have gone by,I was hopeful for a better update. I have hit another road block that has put me on pulse hold. My doctor has been trying to figure out my circulation issues. I was seen by a cardiologist and had echo and stress testing done. All the test came back normal. And then my blood work came back to find that I have a fibrogen gene defect. My body is producing to much fibrogen and this causes sticky blood and circulation issues. This is known to reduce oxygen and nutrients making it to cells. I hope this is making sence, as now I Know why my brain fog is of the charts. I was wondering if anyone has used heprin?

For those of you who went to Sunday school...

Join with me in singing (to the tune of "Oh, How I Love Jesus"):

Oh, how I hate hydrazine

Oh, how I hate hydrazine

Oh, how I hate hydrazine

Because it upsets my stomach.

First session of intermittent therapy nearly completed.
