From Here to There

Yesterday I had my several-times-a-year checkup. My doctor is ecstatic over my progress. He has been pleased almost since the beginning, but is now even more delighted.  

Here an inch, there an inch, after while a mile

It is a very long time since I wrote a blog, so please forgive me if it is a ramble. As MacKintosh says, many of us have moved back into real life. I certainly have. But there is so much need here on this incredible site that those of us who have had so much returned to us have a real obligation to try to give encouragement to those who are struggling with this horror.

Our dog has a cancer

Hi to all friends,

I am sad, cause our dog has a cancer in her nose, so do you think guys, I should give her vitamin Di

If so, what should be the dose? I found that "A toxic dose of Vitamin D is 2272 IU per pound of consumed dry dog food." (http://www.ehow.com/about_5057515_vitamin-requirements-dogs.html<)

Do you think this value is true or not? Our dog is an old labrador... 10 years old with weight about 35kg.

Perhaps it is too late to give it her or there is some chance to stop spreading disease..?

NAC-flu like reaction to Vit D

My doctor wants me to work up to 10,000 iu of Vitamin D3 per day for now.  I just finished my first pulse last week so I have been ramping up the Vit D.  I am up to 7-8000 iu per day now.  Once I hit about 5000 iu per day I noticed that my nasal passages started to become swollen like they did with the NACi and when I upped to the full dose of doxycycline. 

It could be because of the pulse that I finished a few days ago but I really think it is the higher dose of Vitamin D.  I take this as a good sign.

Has anyone else noticed a reaction to high-dose Vitamin D?

some questions

Hi There!

My last entry is quite long ago and as i have some questions too its time for an update.

first the good news: my scrotal pain improoved quite well but still gets worse sometimes while pulsing or after walking to much. right after pulses it gets better mostly. 

my older symptoms are more or less the same though (ibs-b (with sibo and consequently malabsorbption and low weight), cfsi , light fibro,chest pain, very cold limbs ).

the ibs eventhough taking probiotics even got a little worse i think. im a bit affraid the abxi are messing up my gut flora too much.

Vitamin D Petition to Congress

I'm in the middle of doing a school project (Mountain top coal mining, go figure) and I find a petition on Vit. D. 

The first paragraph of the overview petitioning states:

"The Institute of Medicine released a report recently that says few people are vitamin D deficient, despite the scientific research that says otherwise. This is especially troubling now, in the thick of flu season, when people need more vitamin D, not less."

It's interesting and somewhat entertaining to read this. I also signed the petition.

Take Care,

Out of the fog - again

In my seventh year of CAPi, I am once again emerging from the fog.  It is seventeen months since I began, for the second time, to attempt to climb out of the hideous hell-hole of M.S.

Cesare's struggle with his aching back made me realize that my neck does not have paralysing pain any more.   After months and months of not being able to move my head, then graduating to most-time, then part-time, pain, my neck is very close to normal.   That was my final area of great pain from the abxi going after the involved areas of my body's infection.

BP and the Sun

Here I am back again with a couple of things I meant to say before.

The first is just a funny coincidence - my blood pressure at my check-up was my weight over my age: 106/70.

The other has nothing to do with our protocol.  It is that next week we are getting solar hot water!  We almost went entirely solar at the beginning but "chickened out" and decided to try this first.  There is a federal tax rebate of 30% and NC has a 35%  tax rebate in addition. 

A few days after our decision, we learned that a very famous dairy goat judge, breeder, and dairy owner is doing the whole thing.   She is in CA and hers is the second largest solar profect in CA.  This is incredibly exciting that all this is happening!

Few things are perfect - my physical was close

It appears that living right can do good things.   And the young coyote is alive and well - she was not euthanized, but instead released, due to a catch-and-release program!

Today was my annual physical, and I passed with high flying colors.  Such adjectives as: phenomenal, amazing, beautiful, and several others were used.  I was told again that my doctor has fully realized that there is a Vit D deficiency across the county - he used the word "epidemic" - where have I heard that before?  Incidentally, mine is again down to 65, so I will increase my intake again from 8,000 to 10,000 for a while.  My level seems to go up or down as my diligence - unwitting or not - ebbs and flows.
