Lung infection

About Me

I have been suffering with asthmai for about 20 years.  I then developed chronic sinus infectionsi and bronchitis.  About 5 years ago, I had sinus surgery to remove nasal polyps.  About this time, I also started allergy shots.  Due to insurance premiums, I stopped taking allergy shots.  For the first time in years after surgery, I could breathe out of both nostrils.  The allergy shots did help to some degree as well. The bronchitis and sinus infections reduced dramatically, but slowly came back.  I use the netti pot and must say that it is very helpful (at times).  I use a symbicort inhaler from time to time and  notice my asthma kicks in when it is cold or when I exercise.  I have never had asthma so bad where I needed a rescue inhaler, but nonetheless, I am tired of my conditio

Must we have had pneumoia?

I did a search on the site and scanned the handbook.  I was looking to find a statement like, "CPni enters the body through the lungs, therefore you must have had pneumoia as an initial means to longterm infection."  But, I couldn't find something that clearly said that.  Are their ways to get longterm CPn infection without having had pneumoia?  Are their papers on this?  I'm having trouble with this seemingly simple question.  Ken

air gasping? what could be the cause?

I have had trouble sleeping sometimes due to some strange air gasping symptom. At first I thoght it was anxiety but find that I feel like my breathing is out of whack. Not sure if this makes any sence, but could anemia be a possible cause?

My ferritin level has been as low as 13 and my skin looks so pale.  I was reading that a low thyroid could also cause this symptom. The thyroid test keeps in the normal range so, what to do now?


I hate this.......


Podcast on Cpn by Two of the Major Chlamydial Researchers

A very good podcast on Chlamydias by two of the top researchers in the area, Elizabeth Stuart and Wilmore Webley at UMass. They discuss the relationship to cardiac disease, some relationship of Chlam T to cervical cancer, and both Chlam T and Cpni to asthmai in children. 70% of pediatric asthma patients they tested have Chlamydia, with sexually transmitted version and respiratory version (Cpn) at about 50-50. Very important work.<

Antibiotics to be available without prescription

This is the news:  In England, possible antibioticsi to be sold over the counter, to treat CHLAMYDIA!

This is the story form<

Oral antibiotics are to be made available for the first time without doctor's prescription under guidelines approved yesterday by the medicines regulator.

A pill to treat chlamydia, the most commonly diagnosed sexually transmitted infection, will become available for purchase in pharmacies across England later this year.

A Fern Extract Protects the Skin from the Sun: Polypodium leucotomos

Yesterday we had a family birthday party for my mother's sister who turned 99 years young. She is an amazingly healthy woman. Not a bit overweight, stands straight and works in her garden every day. My mother by contrast is 13 years younger and suffers from a myriad of health problems. The difference is striking. Mom lived for many years with my father who was seriously infected with Cpni. She now suffers from re-occurring respiratory infectionsi, arthritis, osteoporosis and fatigue.And refuses to go on the CAPi.

Need Opinions Please..

My husband has had several relapses with pneumonia over the past 5-6 months.  Just received positive serologyi for cpni last week.

He is now finally been taking the dual antibotics (avelox and doxycycoline) for 8 days.

He seems to be improving very slightly...

Due to the fact that he has only had the pneumonia,would you advise us to follow through with Dr. Strattons protocol to eridicte the cpn comletley and avoid future issues?

 I would love to hear all your opinions on this.

Thank You,



I am wondering if anyone has any knowledge of any CPNi Prototcol research being done at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota...

I am curious about what Mayo Clinic Protocal might be.

 Any help would be very appreciated.

Chlamydia Pneumoniae, BOPC and Emphysema

Hello everybody.

I have just discovered this website and all it's rich content. Actually, I am Polo, 33 years old man, Ex Smoker, since 2 weeks and my problem is the following: I am sick since 20 May 06. Fever Peaks, Muscular pains and also sweat peaks. It has been pretty difficult to discover it was a Chlamydia Pneumoniae. First, the Pr. at the Hospital thought it was a Lymphom. I had a Ganglionic biopsy. It was negative (lucky !). After that they found Chlamydia antibody in my blood.  Not so much (around 500 antibody in blood). They also found a polipal maxillary sinusitusi. I had to threat it with Sofrasolone and Becconase for one month. For the Chlamydia, I received Fisrtly one week Biclar (Clarithromicyne) and then one month Maclar (Also Clarithromicyne). After that treatment, I had 4 times more antibody in my blood around 2000). They also discovered an heavy Emphysema and BOPC in both longs (pretty advanced state due to tabaccologic sensitivity (Alpha 1 antitripsin OK in blood)). So I saw a Pneumolog and I stopped immediately to smoke. My longs are already heavy been injured. All symptoms were still presents after Biclar and Maclar so I received 50 Days Doxycycline 200. Fever was nearly dissapeared and I felt quite better. But after 8 days of the end of Doxycycline, symptoms slowly started again. On blood side, antibody decreased a bit but not so much (+- 1600). I went yesterday to the Doctor who advised me to stop all treatments right now and wait. But I really feel unconfortable. I should start to work again next monday and I am really sceared about coming back of symptoms and fever which is still present times to times. What should I do? What can I expect for the future. Does someone have any idea of possible or expected threatments? Sorry if my case seems quite common on such forum but I didn't received much answers at hospital.

Diseases associated with Cpn: the exhaustive list

I have culled from Mitchell & Stratton patent #6,884,784 an exhaustive list of diseasesi where Cpni has been implicated as a possible cause or co-factor (reference: Mitchell & Stratton patent #6,884,784):

Diseases where an association has been discovered between chronic Chlamydia infection of body fluids and/or tissues with several disease syndromes of previously unknown etiology in humans which respond to unique antichlamydial regimens include:

Editorial comment: Strong findings from their research. If you have any of these it suggests to me that at least an empirical course of the combination antibiotic therapy is strongly indicated, with or without serologyi.

Multiple Sclerosis (MSi)
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
Inflammatory Bowel Diseasei (IBD)
Interstitial Cystitisi (IC)
Fibromyalgiai (FM)
Autonomic nervous dysfunction (AND neural-mediated hypotension);
Pyoderma Gangrenosum (PG)
Chronic Fatigue (CF) and Chronic Fatigue Syndromei (CFSi).
