Inflammation of joints and tissues

3 Years, 8 Months, 2 weeks and 2 days.....(Revised 2/14/2011)

It has been 3 years, 8 months, 2 weeks and 2 days since I started CAPi<i<.   I have reached a point, not by choice, but rather by necessity, that I have had to back off the protocol for a while. 

Looking for doctor in UK

Hello everyone!

this site seems to be a real eye opener.

I'm 32 year old male, non smoker.

Trying Roxi instead of Azith

This is day two of switching from Azith to Roxi.  I have a few months' supply and thought I would switch out one of my ABXi since I have been on this protocol for about 2.5 years.   My CPNi titers (in June of this year) are still very high.

I really didn't think there would be any noticable change, but today I am having definite endotoxini reactions (red, scratchy eyes),inflammationi ( my knees and hips are stiff), my legs feel like mud and it's more difficult to walk today.  Extreme fatigue.

Definitely notice Roxi doesn't seem to have the immunomodulatory effect that Azith does for me (so far anyway).


LDN books and Websites

LDNi - I have been on this medication since Feb 17,2009 4 1/2 months now.

I have viewed the speakers whose talks from past LDN Conferences are

available on the internet,

the weblinks are posted here on the CPnHelp website for anyone who is interested and viewing them.


This spring I order several of the most recent books on the topic.

Testing for CPN

I am looking for a bit of advice. My wife has been diagnosed with reactive arthritis and there has been some recent publications linking this potentially to CPNi.

She is open minded about this and we were wondering if there are any good labs to get some tests done to see her level of infection (if any). or is there other tests she should have. She has been back and forth with the NHS for 5 yeras but don't semm to be getting anywhere.

I am currnetly under Dr AW in the UK being treated for CPN (CFSi) , so there is much potential for the bacteria to be causing her issues.

RA: What kind of reactions to expect?

I've had RAi for 33 years. Able to keep relatively under control until recently. My disease has always been about inflamation. I don't test positive for the RA factor. Don't want to use Enbrel or those other drugs if can avoid. Tested positive for cpni via Quest labs. On CAPi for 2 weeks. Swelling of joints is worse. Some strange numbness in hand and as the day goes on can't move 1 arm. No flu like symptoms. Does this sound normal? What else can expect?

No Fun being in OZ

My mobility is becoming worse and I am also having neuropathy-type foot drag -- occasionally the  toes on my right foot fold over and I don't feel them right away until I've scraped them on the floor or stairs! And my feet, (even though I  think they are "up") aren't and I trip... I am unsteady.  My husband is constantly having to steady me and help me maneuver on the occasions we leave the house or he pushes me in a transport chair.

These are NEW symptoms which have developed over the last two pulses.   I have had problems with my right knee since the beginning of capi but these symptoms are different. My left knee and leg are now affected.


If Lyme can be caused though having a root canal done -as it is said by the Doctor Steven Harris, M.D, in the conference he presented - the link given here by lifeontheice<: and now I read in the website healingdaily an article called “Should you have root canals? Where they talk about this Doctor, expert in root canals, who then found that this “repair in the tooth” might be the biggest cause of bacteria in the mouth and then the body. The article says:

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 http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2008/aug/06/health<

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.

Hen or egg?

Most of the Doctors just look at a symptom and treat it the way they think;  - they know it all.  Then, the diagnose comes, like an etiquette of a product. Does someone looks what is behind the symptom?  Which is the cause, and the cause of this cause?

One Doctor -cardiologist-  saw me and when he found out I was multisymtomatic gave me some pills for the anxiety, nothing else. 

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.

Can this help me??? I have been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and suffer from Ross River Virus x 2

Hi, I am very new to this site and came across it while reading a personal message on the Marshall Protocol website.

I have a few questions because I am trying to figure out which is best for me:

1. Having read the Marshall Protocol fairly well and having an understanding of what it is all about I am wondering who monitors progress for this protocol?

2. Where can I read the medical evidence that this works?

3. Where do I ask questions that I need to know?

4. Do doctors have an awareness and support this protocol?

5. Does this protocol suppress the symptoms or cure the bacteria that causes them?
