Comments on CAP variations from Dr. Michael Powell

I asked Dr. Powell to comment directly on concerns that have been mentioned over time as to whether he uses the CAPi with his new patients. I received his response a number of weeks ago but have had no time to put it together in a cogent context. But continued posts on these questions has mobilized me to get his comments to our readers here. But context is, as we say, everything.

Vitamin D, Heart Health and abc tv

Oh, they're finally catching on! Chicago's abc-tv station is doing heavy 'teases' for a segment they'll air tonight on 'heart health' and the 'vitamin everyone needs, but few are getting enough of'. Surprise (although we're not supposed to know it yet), the vitamin is Vitamin D. I'm sure, once they air the segment, their website will have the same info, so I'll try to post the link here later. (This is sweeps, so they're hyping it mercilessly. The actual segment may be anticlimactic.)

Long Term Benefit Questions

hey everyone...  first, i am still a little confused as to if i should post a blog or comments...  whats the difference?  i am still trying to get use to navigating this site...  i do appreciate all the feedback..

Newbie questions

hi..  first off, i REALLY appreciate  any response from current members..  i am new to CAPi.  i just started over a month ago..  though side effects have been a bit harsh, i feel no pain, NO gain mentality .. 

JUST started CPN protocol

wow, i dont know where to really start without saying HELLO first.  its been a LONG 8-10 years of being sick, seeing MANY physicians, and thousands of $$$ later before i really have some what of a guide to getting well.  to just give you a BRIEF summary of my illness, i worked for a poultry processing plant for >10 years and @ the time did NOT think it would cause such heartache, but in a educated hindsight, it created my current condition.  prior to working there i was ENERGETIC and full of life.  well, because it was SUCH a subtle deterioration i didnt put my finger on the enviornmental toxins until 2-3 years ago.  some of the few things i contracted while working there was eczema, asthmai, fatigue, brain fog, dry skin (my skin had always be sooooooo oily) among other things.

Brenda's Progress

This is for Brenda who finally, after two years of Rifampin and flagyli, got her Doxycycline. She has been on it only for two weeks and today called to say: My grandchildren told me that I am walking better. I can lie on my back and draw my legs up and push them out again without cramps. I can turn over. Today I carried laundry out and hung it on the line. The feeling that I am dirty and have to get in the shower every ten minutes because my legs have movement under the skin, is going away (this was undoubtedly muscle spasms). I have lots more energy. AND .... her grandchildren came home with honor roll report cards.

Best pathology

Today I had my post-op checkup - "spectacular", got the drains and the Iron Maiden (my name for the ace bandage) removed, permission to drive (hot dog!), restrictions - don't lift 50# bags of grain for 4 weeks - not even 25# buckets. Will do. The very best part, though all that was pretty good - absolutely clean path report.

A Committee of One of Three of Many

Today I am eighty days post twenty-six day flagyli pulse and though I have not been around the world, I feel as though I have climbed my share of mountains. I was going to do another long pulse in January but have postponed it for two reasons: the first reason is that I have noticed, as have many of us, that the longer and more intense the pulse, the longer the recovery. It has been no exception with this extended (for me) one. I find this as a signpost for us - don't feel that "this is not working" if you choose to go outside the boundaries of the written protocol. This applies with the regular protocol, also, especially early on when this foe is lining up its defenses. We are writing in blood the new rules.

Who the heck is Pandora?

look inside the box and see what's in there .........

SUPPLEMENTSi!!!

All sorts of pills in different shapes and sizes, and BRANDS.  So here's the question - Does anyone detect differences between one or the other?  Does it matter where we buy them? Is NACi the same regardless of where it's bought?

The relationship between vitamin A and D - Very Interesting!

Hello

I read this in a newsletter about the health benefits of sunlight from Dr Mercola:

"What many people, including health professionals, fail to realize is that your cells have
two receptors for vitamin A, for every vitamin D receptor. There is a vitally important
relationship between vitamin A and vitamin D. If you receive too much vitamin D, vitamin
A will help protect you from an excess. This is a crucial concept to understand, as many
individuals will take this new information regarding vitamin D, and start to take massive
doses - thinking this would be a good thing.....

Now please understand that I am referring to vitamin A, NOT beta-carotene. Beta carotene

Number this Pulse? CFS/ME, Cpn & CAP: a complex thang!

We’ve had a big influx of members with CFSi/ME in the past year, especially with my article appearing in a web CFS newsletter. Getting on the CAPi is confusing enough, and difficult enough for this group, so I have been reluctant to report my own particular experiments and treatment results so as not to add more confusion. My story on the Patient Stories pages is accurate and honest: I report a 60-68% improvement using the CAP for Cpni, and that some particular symptoms have not improved as much as I would like. But it begs the question about what can someone with CFS/ME expect from Cpn CAP treatment?

Recreational Drugs

No blowouts this time and our faithful diesel cruised to the show. But the fair people had forgotten to stop the entries at the usual limit of 300 goats, so we were crowded at 480. We have French Alpines and the basic Alpine philosophy is that the last one left standing is the winner so we were very busy with keeping everyone occupied with something to do. Treats, new hay often, back scratches, peanuts, and for the really determined basher, a little water in the face - the penultimate insult.

New research shows vitamin D slashes risk of cancers by 77 percent; cancer industry refuses to support cancer prevention

Interesting article (although I'm not sure how representative the study group is) BUT ....... FDA's attitude is typical!

I Need a Nail

This is another of those combined blogs, one by author, one by proxy, two by confusion, too confusing? Not for us. We know how to deal with the confusing, the confused, and the unexpected: give flagyli.
