Chronicles of a Rifampinaut: Pulse 24

Day 2 of pulse 24.  Nothing remarkable to report, the pulse is going much the same as most of  my prior pulses have gone.  I have a bit of heaviness and burning in my legs but otherwise feel about the same as I did before the pulse.  This being the second day, that could easily change come Monday when the work week begins again, as does my work schedule.

I stopped INHi about three weeks ago and have been having less inflammationi.  What I had before made it really difficult to function on some days, I just wasn't able to get around the way I was before INH and since getting off of it.  I think the combination of abxi was just too much.  I even did two pulses while on continuous INH.  Better to scale back a bit.

Great article on Vitamin D

Vitamin D, Iodoral and Waiting to See a New Dr

I want to thank all of the responders to my questions on waiting or starting the CAPi before my Dr's appt May 20th with a new infectious disease Dr. 

Since I have enough Zithi and minoi to start, I felt I had already made my mind up regardless of whether or not he's willing or wanting to get me started on a CAP but I decided to wait since I've been off abxi now since Dec 2007 and don't want to alter my blood work with the addition of abxi

An Old-fashioned Pulse

Six days after surgery for double mastectomy in Jan, 08, I "did a pulse", thinking since I would be out of action for a while, I wouldn't waste time doing nothing. Boy, did I get the pot stirred! I think all the flagyli went straight to the surgical site - and I understand that cpni bugs are found in cancer cells. I don't know if this is common, but maybe the experts can comment. In my last blog I mentioned that I am the third known case on our site of this kind of cancer (DCIS or a close cousin), and have since learned of at least three other stage four cancer cases of close friends or relatives of members.

Detailed Info on Vitamin D, especially in relation to MP

A lot of people coming to the site here have questions about the Marshall Protocol and the Cpni CAPi, where we recommend Vitamin D supplementation in contrast to MPi. The most detailed analysis of the MP in relation to what is known in the scientific literature about Vitamin D occurs in this link:

Vitamin D Abstracts & Commentaries

Rifampin users may need extra Vitamin D

Rifampin users may need extra D, in addition to more of certain medications (Rifabutin is a longer acting Rifampin):

when does CAP treatment end?

  my questions to all you Cpni veterans.  is it safe to say that if you were to test your Cpn antibiodies they'd be below reference, thus, negative, right? 

assumming the patient is feeling good (after 2 years on CAPi) and with no improvement seen over the last 6 months (hit roadblock).  their improvments are noted as >75% improvments.  ok, i guess my question is when does one stop taking CAP?  i could be wrong, but the marker doesnt seem to be blood test driven, so i am assumming it subjectively up to who he/she is feeling.  are there any or a lot of >2 years CAP'ers that will be ceasing soon?

Vitamin D for Insomnia

Azithromycin Dosage

i'm curious.  the consensous here for zithro dosage seems to be 500mg.  well, when my old physician initially treated my infectious cause she prescribed zithro 500mg qdi (daily) along with doxyi 200mg qd for 3 months.  well, after about 3 weeks on this dosage my stomach pain were inbearable!  i now realize it was the DAILY 500mg of zithro that did the damage.  needless to say,  i stopped and it wasnt until i found this site that i decided to start treatment again (about 6 months later).  i started back up with 500mg zithro MWF along with the doxy.  well, after seeing Dr.

Lab Results

hey everyone!  though i've had a GRIP of lab draws over the last 2 years my old physician NEVER tested me for Cpni.  i was HIGH for mycoplasma and given the nature of that organism i never doubted i was in the right place here. 

well, Dr Powell tested me for Cpn and i got my results today.  i was high at 1:128 (reference <1:64).  i looked at some member labs results in the past.  some must of went through another laboratory due to their result numbers, but it looks as though my results are "RELATIVELY" low.  i would love anyones opinion on the results.  also, is it common that after > 1 year of therapy that our IgGi antibody titers will be NON DETECABLE?  has anyone on here had elevated IgM antibodies (indicative of a current infection)? 

Chronicles of a Rifampinianaut vol. 5: So Begins the Age of INH

WinkYes, I broke into my stash of INHi from last fall and took my very first dose of INH tonight with my second dose of Rifampin for the day, hence the Rifampinianaut. Isoniazid is the full name of INH and I just couldn't bring myself to label myself the Rifampiniazid. Of course, if one want's to be completely accurate, I would have to also work in Doxycycline, Azithromyocin, N-Acetyl Cysteine, and Metronidazolei. Hmmm....the Metroxyzithricetylfampiniazid, lol!!! O-kee, D'O-kee, I think not, lol
