Slide Presentation on Cpn from Charles Stratton

Although focused on respiratory diseasei, this slide show provides and excellent summary of Cpni in general, and why combination antibiotic therapy is so important.

NAC and EB--lifespan of Cpn?

I have been researching and researching....omg. It seems to never end!  

As I have mentioned I have had a pretty difficult time with porphyriai--what a nightmare.  I have made the decision

to regroup and evaluate everything before I progress to another level.  Due to porphyria I discontinued taking iron tablets--I now realize

that I am seriously anemic.  That explains my current massive fatigue--I have been here before.  , 


Recently I discovered Dr. Terry Wahl and her impressive improvements  with MS.  She is practicing many food

principles that I used in the past (MS-Direct diet)  and I was much healthier at the time.

Development of Chlamydia pneumoniae inclusion

Interesting, yet kinda creepy knowing this is what is going on inside us.

Don't leave out the NAC

Decorum on a Forum

I have been reflecting on this topic for some time as I participate on this site. (I have been a member here since 2007.)  Some activity over the last several months, and as of late, prompts me to express my feelings here in my blog

We are a diverse group and come here to participate for many different reasons - some out fear, some to confirm their sanity, others frustration with doctors, others to find support, and to ask questions.  This IS the ONLY dedicated CPNi support site.   It was my lifeline when I was so very, very ill and still is one of the few places one can go to have comrades who understand what this process is about.   

NAC versus Amoxycillin

I understand that both NACi and Amoxycillin open up and kill the EB form of Cpni.

 I started NAC last week at 500mg twice a day and after several days increased to 1000mg twice a day.

 Started with runny nose and cough within a couple of days and have been blowing my nose ever since.

Today i am WIPED, with headache, sore joints and sweaty.

To me this seems pretty conclusive as an NAC test.


But.....i have taken Amoxycillin in the past as part of my Lyme treatment, and have never had this kind of reaction....which I would have thought I should have had if I do have Cpn.

Do some people with Cpn react to one and not the other.....or should it be both? 

Who out there is functional? (Non-Ms'ers)

For the benefit of perspective......I am curious.  We get varied responses on physical reactions to pulses, ABXi, etc.; BUT,  in the big picture, how many of you ( on a day-to-day basis), are still functioning below normal.... or non-functional?   How many are unable to work, drive, take care of the home, cook, etc.?

Some of you speak of your pulses taking you down, but yet have the physical capabilities of going to the gym, carrying out day-to-day activities and working.  (Which, by the way, is fantastic)  This query is in no way meant as an offense to anyone.  

 Since I am unable to do a poll, is anyone willing to share?

Biofilms - Clinical Implications of, by Dr. Stephen Olmstead, Chief Science Officer for Prothera and Klaire Labs -

On February 26, 2009, Dr. Stephen Olmstead, Chief Science Officer for ProThera® and Klaire Labs™, gave a lecture to the Physicians’ Roundtable meeting in Greenville, North Carolina on gastrointestinal biofilm.

InterFase Plus and Biofilms

Last Wednesday, I decided to start the InterFase Plus for the treatment of biofilms.  I was curious to see what, if any, type of reaction I would have.  The recommended dosage (on the bottle) is 2-8 capsules per day.   Additionally, I have a schedule obtained from an autism parent given to her by the autism doc, Dr. McCandless, but it is too agressive IMOi, for me so I decided to only take it on M/W/F,  the days I take both Azith and Doxyi. (I switched back to Azith, from Roxi January 2010).
