Bacteria hijack cells - AMPylation signaling process

Hi, all - Just saw this today and it sort of dovetails into a recent conversation here (I just can't find it at the moment). You might want  to check out this link:

Ibuprofen / Inflammation / Flagyl Pulse

Following the last discussion we had about Naproxen / Aleve as a COX-2 Inhibitor, Kim started taking Ibuprofen during pulse week and has just completed her first pulse week with Ibuprofen.  She took 400mg twice a day for the 7 day pulse.  She had a pretty easy pulse feeling somewhat more tired but not nearly as impacted as she had been in other pulses.

Then she stopped taking Ibuprofen on day 8 when she stopped taking Flagyli.

Your Choices of OTC Pain Relievers and your reasons

the pressure here is down, the wind is blowing blizzard conditions and our first good snow of the seaso here.  Temperature finally up to 14F  pressure down to 28.92 .  And although I a snug as a bug in a rug (to quote my Mother)the wind is noisey, I cannot sleep and generalized aching is setting in.

My ususal style to to stick it out but I am wondering if taking and OTC medicaton chold be helpful.   I know there have been some discussions regarding peoples preferences.  Naproxene Sodium, Ibuprofen and Lightly coated simple asprin are my available sources with the weather promissing to hold me up till at least Tuesday morning. 

Stopping inflammation while raising vitamin D levels

Many discussions of late have talked about vitamin Di as well as increasing vitamin D levels.  In addition, many discussions lately also have talked about inflammationi and how to reduce it.  The problem is that those two objectives may have obstacles that counter the other.  My question and the discussion I want to have is how can we do that?

Naprosyn \ Aleve \ Naproxen \ Anti-Inflammatory

Kim has had questions about whether the ABXi is really working.  She's had a tough time the past month or so.  We've bumped her up to 2gm Chlorella per day and she is still taking charcoal at night.  But, Kim keeps asking me if the ABXi is really helping.  I've been recounting for her how far she's come and how several symptoms are vastly improved, but I can hear in Kim's voice that she's asking in relation to how she feels .... today.  In all my recounting for Kim I realized that I keep using the words "die-off" and "inflammationi".  Kim takes charcoal and chlorella for the die-off, but suddenly, I really paid attention to the word "inflammation".

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.
