I have CPN and Babes, Lyme's as well

I guess I don't understand my Lyme's. I have Lyme's and Chlamydia as well as Babes (I'm not sure what this is) I saw my Lyme doctor yesterday. I said do I have co infection and he said I showed Negitive for Co infectionsi, but i have Chlamydia and Babes. I understand it's more bacteria right?

I'm doing the Bicillin shots right now, but haven't noticed any improvement, 5 weeks on them so far. My doc said give it to the 6th, 7th or 8th shot to notice a difference. I know too, I'm dealing with yeast issues so I'm on Diflucan and Nystantin both.

Liver Detoxification

Liver Detoxification; available as seen at and

from<  for the full article.

"The liver plays several roles in detoxification: it filters the blood to remove large toxins, synthesizes and secretes bile full of cholesteroli and other fat-soluble toxins, and enzymatically disassembles unwanted chemicals. This enzymatic process usually occurs in two steps referred to as phase I and phase II.

Phase I Detoxification - Phase I either directly neutralizes a toxin, or modifies the toxic chemical to form activated intermediates which are then neutralized by one of more of the several phase II enzyme systems.

I have Lyme's but it's causing my ulcertive colitis I think

I'm working with a Lyme Literate Doctor, I'm on Bicillin shots onces a week because the two orals I tried, Doxyi and Cedfiner caused me such gut problems I was pooping up to 20 times a day! I'm on Diflucan as well. I was wondering is Chlamydia Pneumoniae part of Lyme's disease?  I tried reading and re reading some of the info and I'm so confused. I had Igenix testing done, over a $1,000 worth from them. They confirmed Lyme's bacteria in the past, my doctor said. The reason I'm writing is my colon and by gut aren't any better. I still have bloody diareeah and it's painful! My energy has improved so much along with my happiness, but my gut/butt has not. What should I go and ask my doctor about now, any suggestions? I like my LLMD a lot, great guy. I'm from Michigan.

My Doc says he will support ABx therapy but its not one of the standard protocols Help !!

I had Some very Good news today.

As I failed to respond well to other treatments for my uSpA, I just spoke with my US Doctor and he is willing to support me on ABxi. Yeaa !! I am so excited  Smile

However his experience with ABx was obtained doing a study under Dr JD Carter at USF with a very simple protocol of doxycycline 100 mg twice daily and rifampin 600 mg daily for 9 months.

 Great for a for a short study  but as a long term treatment protocol I'm not so sure??

Alternate antibiotics?

Here's an update.  I backed off on the azithromycin and have been still just on 100mg minocycline.  I stopped the herbal teas, though I couldn't find anything linking any of the ingredients to tinnitus">i.  I can live with a low level constant tinnitus.  My concerns were that in the past it has escalated to unmaskable, burglar alarm type sounds that made sleep that much more difficult.  Also, my understanding is that the tinnitus is warning sign of hearing loss and that the antibiotics could possibly lead to deafness.  At this point, if my life was that much further limited, I don't think I could survive it.

Cpn and Lyme and Diagnosis

I am posting this for a second time since I only got one response the first time I posted and I really am so desparate for guidance from you all.

Many thanks!


LLMD wants to hit Lyme and maybe will get Cpn along the way...

My LLMD wants to treat for Lyme and says there is big overlap in the antibiotics used for Lyme and Cpni. This would just mean taking two antibiotics like Zithro and Doxyi to start every day, twice per day....
This is not the protocol that is recommended I realize so I wonder if her approach would do more harm than good to me in general and to killing off the Cpn bugs in general.
What do people think?
Is it crucial to follow the protocol because if I do also have Lyme, this protocol isn't a good idea to get at the Lyme.

So, what do folks do treatment wise if they have Lyme AND Cpn and need to treat both???????

amoxicillin replacement

I tried taking Amoxicillini. But after 14 days, I developed uncontrollable diarrhea. I was wondering

if I have to stay in the penincillin family to kill the EBi?  what are my options? Thank you in advance for your responses. 

cipro and amoxcillinn

Hello everyone its been a whille since I posted but I have some important questions if anyone could answer them.

I started cipro yesterday. I heard it was a good alternative to doxyi. and the doxy doesnt work for me anymore. so im going to wait 3-6 months and go back on it. the Rif seems to be doing fine with out the doxy but I still get pain in my groin and lymph nodes and some other symptoms also. So after the first day of cipro I feel better. I just wanted if anyone could give me any advise while on cipro.. I know cipro and azithro go good together but what about cipro and amoxy. I heard these 2 might not be a good idea. any thoughts ???

question about resistance

I had a hypothetaical question about resistance. Say the bacteria becomes resistance to azithromycin. If I start taking clarithromycin instead does the bacteria still become resistant becuase its a macrolide or does it recognize it as a different abxi and does not establish resistance. The same thing with doxyi and minoi. Are they too slimiliar. I hope I didnt confuse anyone.  Overtime I relized that the doxy and azithromycin effects are diminishing. I really miss the good old days when they where all mighty powerfull when I started taking them.

last flagyl pulse switching to Tinni

I am going to try Tinni instead of flagyli. If theres a alternative to flagyl im all for it.  I dont need to explain the blissful effects of flagyl you all know what im talking about.  Im willing to pay the money for a happier life during a pulse.  Any suggestions anyone. My Tinni will be here in 2-3 weeks. right now im on my last flagyl pulse and im 3 days into it. Im trying for 2 weeks but we will see.

Pulse #12 Culminated with an ER Visit

For my records here….. I started pulse #12 on Sunday, October 4th.  I have been tolerating my pulses (for the most part) decently.   The first 2 days the left side of my head felt clogged with cement.  My left ear, eye, lymph nodes, sinus were painful.  Right knee painful.   Total inability to concentrate... first 3 days I felt as if I were in "suspended animation" and all I really did was “zone out” and stay in the house.

CAP month 28 Update, Progressed to Intermittent Cycles

CAPi month 28 Update, Progressed to Intermittent Cycles After 20 months on WheldonCAP I went on intermittent.  My MD has chosen not to order trepeat labs for the CPni<i< and co-infectionsi<i< or viruses, of which I had all of these done before the starting any abxi<i< therapy.   

Where's Jim?

Haven't seen him on the board for a long time. Anyone know if he is ok? Is he still on antibiotics?
