Happy New Year

Someone else noted that when people do the CAPi and get better, they start living their life again and so they don't hang around the site as much.  In my case that is true. 

There's one thing I've noticed since I completed the CAP a couple of years ago and I was wondering if anyone else has had the same experience.  Since completing the CAP, my toenails grow very slowly (i.e. I can go two weeks between having to trim them) and my fingernails very quickly (i.e. I have to trim them twice a week).  Has this happened to anyone else?

Short Answer & Long Answer

For the short answer to your question, read my blog.

For the longer answer, read on.  I have M.S.  Initially mis-diagnosed as brain cancer in July 2006.  This diagnosis was later changed to the Fulminate or Marburg presentation of M.S. as I was having exacerbations roughly every 90-120 days.  This was later changed to Relapsing-Remitting.  The various exacerbations left me unable to speak, unable to sign my own name, unable to contain my bladder, unable to see color, with optic neuritis so that I have a "blank spot" in my visual field, walking like Fraqnkenstein's monster and (as revealed by later testing) reduced my I.Q. by 12 points.

I started the CAPi in August 2007 and continued into early 2010. 

Since completing the CAP, I have experienced partial or complete healing of all symptoms except the optic neuritis.  I even managed to reclaim about 6 of those 12 missing I.Q. points and improve my job performance to the point where I was promoted.

 

CAPi for M.S. 8/2007 - 3/2009.  Twentieth pulse metronidazolei + INHi completed 3/12/2009.  Intermittent treatment thereafter until 11/20/2009.  

Thanks for info.

Really appreciate you getting back so quickly......

how is your walking now? That is my main worry.... 

Walking

M.S. progresses differently for everyone since the disability is dependent upon the area(s) of the brain that are impacted.  In general, I have been doing great, but read my most recent post.

I'd have to agree, to some

I'd have to agree, to some extent.  On starting abxi, toes and fingers (nails, folks, not digits) grew much faster than before.  Now, fingernails still grow pretty fast, but toenails not so fast.  Thinking about it, I'd say I've cut back some on antioxidantsi, so that may be why.

Another CAPi effect I noticed was the return of my ability to 'sense' the time, even when waking from a dead sleep.  I'm generally within four minutes of the actual time.

And, I've recovered my ability to concentrate on two conversations at once (the so-called cocktail party ability).  For several years, if I tried to listen to two conversations at once, or the tv and a conversation, I failed miserably at both. 

The happiest of these little items, though, is my lifelong cold-nose, cold-toes, thing is gone. ;-)
