Vitamin D

warning: Creating default object from empty value in /home/cpnhelp/www/www/modules/taxonomy/ on line 33.
a vitamin found in cod-liver oil, milk, and egg yolk, that is necessary for the growth and health of bones and teeth. Vitamin D prevents rickets. It exists in several related forms, including D-2 (calciferol), D-3, and D-4. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, produced by irradiating ergosterol and other sterols.

Supplement reaction?

I decided to try a limited set of the supplementsi: vit E, vit C (+ a couple of oranges, and juice at breakfast), vit D3, ALA, Milk thistle, and melatonin">i. I decided to leave B12 and NACi out for now. The reason I leave NAC out is that I want to supplement the others in order to counter any deficiencies there to increase the chance that any reaction is a NAC-flu from action on Clamydia EBs (is it a good idea or unnecessary, well see below, too).


Hi everyone and God Bless. Its been a good while since I posted. there has been a lot going on that I need to share with you all. I am currently taking a break from the protocol. I am pleased to say that the protocol saved my life. I was on it for 2 1/2 years. I will probably do another cycle in 6-12 months.  I still have minor symptoms such as some fatique and a little depression but I solved those with LDNi and Lexapro. I still get skin burning but thats from the Fibromyalgiai. One day I will be 100% symptom free. A little arthritis here and there but not much. since I went off the abxi I did develope 1 serious problem. Ive been having a bad case of IC. So far ive been keeping it at bay with high doses of Vitamin D, Colostrum, and colloidal silver.

Vitamin D can heal tuberculosis?

Interesting article by Dr. James Howenstine, MD- about tuberculosis treatment with 10000iu of vitamin D daily over 9 months. All the patients made complete recoveries.<

Question on Goal for Vitamin D Level on tests

 I just got blood work back that listed my Vit D level at 63.  The nurse (primary general physician's nurse, not my CPni treating physician's nurse) said I could lower my dose to 2000 a day.  I take 4000 now.  I have the feeling I should not lower it.  The recommended range was 32 to 100, I think, and the paper said optimal levels for health were good at 32 or above.  Is 32 enough, or are we looking for much higher levels.  Is 63 great, or should I try to get it higher???  It is not only critical for me for CPn, but evidently also to prevent recurrence of cancer, as even my primary physician (not CPn doc) pointed out that Vit D is an incredible cancer preventer....

Breaking the Duck; Raw Food - anyone doing it?

Just for my own records (since I usually loose any paper that I write anything down on) I took two Flagyli yesterday.  I really wanted to do 3, a full pulse, but read some people's reactions and remembered Jim's advice to be conservative as well as my strong reactions to the first two abxi.  So I don't know if I broke the duck or not, since I don't know if I need a full day's pulse to do so.  But I took the plunge anyway.  I have no side affects yet, unlike taking the first two abxi, which gave me almost immediate side effects.  But from reading everyone else's reactions to flagyl/tinii, I know that reactions may surprise me much later with this 3rd abx.

Introduction to Vitamin D< 
by Reinhold Vieth Ph.D.

The persistent tortoise

This is a very short blog about a tortoise in the slow lane. For many years (how does this happen? - we shouldn't blink!) I had a solitary discussion about arthritis:

(1) I was getting very old very fast. (I was 55) and everything hurt.

(2) My hips are in agony.

(3) My fingers and shoulders hurt all the time.

(4) My neck is so stiff that I can't turn my head.   It hurts even when I don't try to turn it.

Most of my joint pain went away while I was "sleeping" that first couple of years. Then my hips were incredibly painful during walking - then it went away. My finger joints were worked on one at a time and have slowly stopped hurting, though still have  some residual swelling, probably permanent, which I accept.

Books and a Movie

Many times I read for the great pleasure gained and to satisfy my curiousity, but I discovered Greg Mortenson, Three cups of Tea, and now Stones into Schools. Along with wishing the Nobel Prize for Medicine for our cpni crew, I wish the Nobel Peace Prize for Greg Mortenson. And I am hardly ever much affected by movies, but last night we saw "Seven Pounds", with Will Smith, and will probably be affected for the rest of my life.

As for my own cpn protocol against PPMSi, I still chip away daily with my five abxi plus caffeine. We all tweak and listen and tweak some more, but I seem to have stumbled on a tight turn of the screw, thanks to John (farandwide) and Paul.

Vitamin D January 2010 Newletter

The Vitamin D Newsletter

January 30, 2010.

This is a periodic newsletter from the Vitamin D Council, a non-profit trying to end the epidemic of vitamin D deficiency. you are not subscribed, you can do so on the Vitamin D Council's website.<

This newsletter may be reproduced as long as you properly and prominently attribute its source. Please reproduce it, post it on Internet sites, and forward it to your friends.

This month, I dedicate the entire newsletter to a mother's lengthy case report of her autistic son. Other than name and place of residence, the letter was not edited.

Dear Dr. Cannell:

Whatever is Required

We spoke to Dr S just now.  He was approving of my going back on flagyli, and, because of nausea, cutting back on caffeine. 

A couple of interesting and heartening bits came of the conversation.  One is that I will continue with this protocol for another three months and call him again, sooner if there is news either way - worse or better - because I still react.  But... my daily reaction is nowhere near five years and four months ago.  For example, today is Azithromycin day - and Doxyi, Rifampin. Amoxycillin, flagyl, and caffeine. 

Starting on Wheldon 16 January 2010

I started Wheldon protocol on Saturday 16 january 2010, only 5 days ago. I have had Fibromyalgiai for 10 years ( sometimes also referred to as Chronic fatigue syndromei). My worst symptoms are headaches, body aches and migraines- they have now progressed to daily instead of teice a week.

I was on another protocol ( Marshal protocol for 3 years and I did have some respite from symptoms but now have lapsed back.

I have been off all abxi for 7 months and now feel very sick.

On the 50mg of minocycline a day I am surprised at how hard it has ben to tolerate this dose as I have been on 100mg before and tolerated this ok ( 12 months ago) ...just goes to show how the critters must multiply pretty quick.
