List of Probiotic Bacteria

I thought some may find this list helpful: List of Probiotic Bacteria

Probiotics are friendly bacteria that live in the intestines. Promoting healthy digestion and absorption of some nutrients, they act to crowd out pathogens, such as yeasts, other bacteria and viruses that may otherwise cause disease. Probiotics develop a mutually advantageous symbiosis with the human gastrointestinal tract. They benefit from the foods we ingest and our bodies utilize the byproducts of their life processes.

Is this going the right direction?

This is probably going to be fairly long since it's my first blog entry.


I started an empirical CAPi in October on suspicion of a Cpni infection, as my 10 years worth of symptoms find a ton that fit in with a Cpn infection. Not long into starting, I went through a series of old symptoms that hadn't bothered me in years that reminded me that way back at the start of all these symptoms, I had legitimate concern of a lyme or other TBD infection. Bullseye rash, joint pain, muscle twitching, sore throat, increased floaters and neck pain. I saw my doctor about all of that, but it was explained away. Anyway, maybe 2 weeks into the CAP, I re-experienced all of that except the bullseye rash.


Seven Keys to UtraWellness - Balancing them and Optimizing the Plan

A good read, The UltraMind Solution;Fix Your Broken Brain By Healing Your Body First by Mark Hyman,MD, Ney Your Times Bestselling Author of UltraMetabolism. 

This book outlines a 6 week plan that encompasses much of the adjuncts that many here have been advised by their practitioners to incorporate into their treatment plans along with CAPi

Last summer I purchased it at my providers office in hard cover, it was released in Dec.2008.   It will be out in paperback in June 2009 and I was surprised to learn today that it is available on CD and as an MP3 download format.  On amazon there is an excerpt of the author reading from chapter 1.   There may even be some used copies around by now online.

I especially have enjoyed reading;

collidal silver and checking in

Hello everyone just checking in. Well ive been going through a lot of changes for the past 3 weeks. I went off all my antibioticsi and started taking Biaxin and Bactrim with flagyli pulses. It seems to be working. After about 6 months im going to go back on my normal regiment. The bugd seem to have become resistant to just about everything excpet the antibiotics im on now.  The protocol ive been on for the past 2 years has been great. ive seem to have isolated the bacteria to only certain parts of my body. it likes to hide out in my abdomin for some reason. I also get a lot of muscle twitches. mostly when I come off a flagyl pulse. I didnt get the twitches until I went off the protocol. and started this new one. its been scary but I think I need to cycle some new antibiotics.

Vitamin K

Last spring I added Vitamin K complex to my list of daily supplementsi.  My primary motivation was as an adjunct for bone health, because on a regular basis, I simply was not eating enough dark green leafy vegetables.  

Recently a list of research articles has broadened my perspective on Vitamin K's diverse possible supportive functions in the body. 

I wonder how many here might be supplementing their Vitamin K levels.  It seems that this could be a relevant discussion as I looked at the titles on the list or research articles.


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.

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).


Brutal Illness

I hope I'm posting this in the right place. I have been telling my story to every type specialist in the books until now. I'm praying my new docs are on the right track.

Glutathione Metabolic Support for Liver Detoxification of CAP antibiotics

Glutathione Metabolism;<

I am currently undergoing supplementation by IV route and would appreciate feedback from those who have participated in this asjunctive supportive therapy both IV and oral routes and your perspective on how it has helped you if you feel it has.   Also I would appreciate any suggestions for other routes of administration and manufactures of oral or dermal products to increase blood levels.  

Feeling My Way Around

Please bear with me I attempt to learn the ends and outs of this website.  I have an appointment with Dr. Sriram at Vanderbilt MSi Clinic on the 26th of March.  I have been lurking and reading at this site for a couple of years now and I am happy that several of you have now improved who have MS by using the CAPi.


This site is a wealth of information and I am sure I will be back after I start the CAP with questions.

Inflammation from Novacain?

I have been going in for some repair on old cracked molars. Every time I get Novacaine shots, I get nerve inflammation that lasts for a few days. Once the dentist gave me a Motrin 800 after grinding away and I didn't get the inflammation. Yesterday, I had an overlay put on and didn't take the Motrin. Today, the side of my face hurts and the nerves feel inflamed. Anybody have this experience with the dentist? Raven

Still Fighting to Take 3rd Abx. Stopping Biaxin for 1 month.

Well, it's been so long since I've posted, I'll be surprised if anyone even remembers me.  I've been fighting to get to take Flagyli (or similar) and my doc wanted me to take pyruvate and then take rifampin off and on (but not take flagyl).  I wasn't up for the rifampin off and on; still terribly confused by his desire to avoid flagyl and pulse rifampin, but went ahead and took the pyruvate. 

I  vomited like I had food poisoning and had some other strong reaction on day 9 (or got the stomach flu?) and stopped taking pyruvate temporarily.  I got a similar reaction about a week later even though I hadn't started taking pyruvate again.  My gut instinct is that it was a delayed reaction, but I have no real idea.  I felt really sick and weird for a few days.
