Explanations

We take our work habitus for granted and assume that others must understand it. I’ve come believe that this is not the case; in my own situation I find that people wonder whether I’m a real medical practitioner. Part of the problem is that the American MD degree is equivalent to a MB ChB in the UK. British MDs are rare. So I thought I would try to clarify matters on my web-page by adding a short resume of how I came to be a medical microbiologist and what the daily work of such a person entails. Please let me know if it can be improved.

Up for Dr wheldon's protocol

Dear Dr Wheldon,

I can understand your frustration. There will always be people (including many neurologists) out there who are willing to not to listen or even not to consider that CPNi could be a cause of MSi and that your protocol worthwhile trying. Even having real successful cases in hand.

I personally saw my neurologist recently and he did not listen nor let me finish talking when I told him that there were documented evidences that CPn is believed to be a cause (or linked to) MS.... I couldn’t finish my sentence and let him know that I am following your protocol. I was absolutely ignored. A bit of a shame really.....

Your protocol should be a front line treatment. In my case without it I would be absolutely hopeless. In my eyes if this treatment fails one alternative would be BG-12 and it has been estimated to cost 50.000$ a year (if they approve it). Who can personally afford this! It is absolutely prohibitive.  Definitely it worthwhile trying your protocol, it is so much cheaper. …. Although it may not work for everybody it should be given a chance. If it works great!!! if not, we can always move to these super-expensive treatments, well....if we are the chosen one by the NHS. I just do not get it.

It would be of great use if people who have been through your protocol and complete it successfully could create a more explicit database. If these people could also supply medical evidences any scan ….etc it would be  even better.

In my case I have been 1 month under Dr Wheldon's protocol and at the moment no more new relapses are coming and my lungs are like a baby, completely new, no more coughing asthmai or colds.

Time will tell us.

Take care you all!

Thanks for the explanation,

Thanks for the explanation, DW. In Australia I believe doctors with your qualifications are often referred to as Infectious Disease Specialists. It will be a great day when the phrase ‘infectious disease’, is not considered odd when placed in the same sentence as MSi, CFSi, FM, Asthmai etc. The day will come.

Checking it out..

Hello, David,

Couldn't just stop at "About the Author,"  which was, as you said, a needed validation of your medical expertise. I think it was important to reiterate your  substantial "credentials" to  members and visitors on this site.  Thank you. Some of us in other countries don't  even know what FRCPath means, or MB.  Duh (!)

The rest of your site beckoned irresistably: I hadn't read it: ALL of it, studiously, for quite sometime. Like a good book or  movie, everytime I revisit your explanation of your protocol,  I find something else helpful, which I didn't notice at the previous reading. This time it was "Perchlorazine" (early on in Sarah's treatment).  So I Googled same on Wiki. However, Internet Explorer would only give me sources for "Pro chlorperazine." Are pro and per  the same drug?  In the US, pro  is available by Px only: Compazine is a trade name. Anyway, I'm curious what part of Sarah's Cpni infection the drug addressed.

Thanks Betsy.Prochlorperazine

Thanks Betsy.

Prochlorperazine is in the phenothiazine class: it's very effective in treating vertigo and nausea due to vertigo. I take it myself against motion sickness. Years ago I once made a trip from Plymouth to Santander. The Bay of Biscay lived up to its stormy reputation and the good ship Armorique was tossed all over the place. Most of the passengers were green and very ill. I had taken prochlorperazine; it was so effective I managed to make it to breakfast. I guess that, when this infection is treated, released endotoxini can get into the inner ear and cause vertigo: prochlorperazine can be helpful. Both Sarah and I went through a ‘Bay of Biscay’ period early in treatment.

David, here in the US meclizine is available over the counter do you think that it might be another alternative to consider as possible being of help with moving through the effects as the endotoxinsi are released?

A year or two before I

A year or two before I started treatment we were on our way down to Devon on holiday and I felt very travel sick after only having driven less than twenty miles.  We stopped in the next town and bought some prochlorperazine and it stopped the sickness very quickly.  However it also made me very sleepy and I slept through most of Buckinghamshire, Wiltshire, Somerset and Devon. I hate being sleepy during the day, so I would guess it is only suitable for occasional use. (Luckily David was driving, not me!)...............Sarah

A Journey through Light and Shadow

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MSi in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Ginger

I don't know if ginger is strong enough for die off but it definitely kicks my nausea's butt. I just take two ginger tablets and it is gone in half an hour.  I used to get sick for up to two days every month as a result of monthly menstrual migraines. I was in bed for two days as a result. Yea! Now I take the 1-2 punch of Exedrin migraine  and ginger and I'm at least mobile again and Sarah it doesn't make me tired. Maybe you could try it if you haven't already.  But then again I've never tried it with die off symptoms.  Has anyone wevr tried ginger to treat porphyriai ?

MSi: First sxi '93 dxi '09 no obvious relapses just steady decline since '07. Crippling fatigue, too weak to sit up for extended periods of time. Cane/walkers/electric chair inside, helicopter outside.

Here's another vote for

Here's another vote for ginger to combat nausea/travel sickness. I used to carry bags of crystalised ginger (the sort used for baking) with me at all times in the car and yes it works quickly.

I also used it during any nausea type of die off reactions. Great stuff.

Since we've become such an 'international' site, courtesy of the Australian  media, I'm sure this will be most helpful, David.

Thanks David

I read that you recommended one year of abxi and then intermitent

I have been using them for over a year and a half and still get a significant herx and significant improvement when I pulse

Since I have likely been sick for forty years I wonder how long I should continue this protocol

 

DAILY:  NACi 2400MG , DHEAi sublingual , vit D3 , multi vits,./ Three times  a week: B12 injections (Hydroxycobalamin). Deer antler./  Once every few months methyl B12 Methyl injections

Homina,

I think everyone's requirements are different. It makes sense to continue treatment until die-off stops. All this very new and no-one has all the answers.

It's been about two years since I made that comment above , that's 3.5 years of pulsing  and while I have expanded  my protocol to include more natural cures I still get a herx when I pulse and I am still getting improvement but the improvement is less pronounced

Which makes me wonder why Cpni is so hard to get rid of
