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.


Interesting Article: FIR Sauna benefits Fibromyalgia

Since we don't see to many articles on this, I thought I'd post for those interested.

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<

A pill to treat chlamydia, the most commonly diagnosed sexually transmitted infection, will become available for purchase in pharmacies across England later this year.

Need Help with Cipro and Flagyl pulses for cpn Macular Degeneration

Hello again. I really need some guidance. My mother is on Cipro twice a day and Flagyl (metronidazolei) pulses every other week.

Problem: her fatigue has greatly improved, her blurry eyes are better and she can read again a bit.  Her joint pain improved over about 4 or 5 months.

But: I know Cipro can cause tendon rupture and the other day she got a severe pain in Achilles (sp?) tendon. So I told her to only take the Flagyl since last  Thursday and wait for the pain to go away before resuming Cipro.

Then I thought  ... is it all right to take Flagyl by itself? Just for a few extra days?

I know the protocol says Doxyi - and Aziith (twice a week) with Flagyl pulses. But I could only get Cipro and Flagyl from our doctor. I have hoarded a one year supply so far.

Wet age related macular degeneration

Greetings to the list. I am very alone in trying to help my mother with her wet macular degeneration.  As well, she has symptoms of CFSi (chronic fatigue syndromei).

She took Minocycline for 3 months earlier this year, left over from about 5 years ago I think and it stopped the leakage in her right eye between doctor visits.  But at the next visit in June, the eye was leaking blood into the macula. The eye doctor sounded annoyed and said there was nothing to do.  I don't believe in the Lucentis or Macugen since it has to be repeated repeatedly by injections into the eye (ouch!)

 Since the minocycline worked, it is obvious to me that there is bacteria there.  I have read somewhere on the net about this, but no mention of what kind of bacteria.

Help I am so confused

I am still trying to get a grasp on Chlamydia Pneumoniae, I just found out on 4-11-07.  But I have been sick for awhile  Cry.  I am just starting Antibioticsi again......eeeeek Foot in mouth.  My symptoms have been sinus infectionsi and uppper respitory infections , Phlaringitis, Broncotitis, Asthmai.  In and out of the Dr. office the month of April, and my throat swelled shut I could go on and on.  I ended up at an Infetious disease Dr.

Diseases associated with Cpn: the exhaustive list

I have culled from Mitchell & Stratton patent #6,884,784 an exhaustive list of diseasesi where Cpni has been implicated as a possible cause or co-factor (reference: Mitchell & Stratton patent #6,884,784):

Diseases where an association has been discovered between chronic Chlamydia infection of body fluids and/or tissues with several disease syndromes of previously unknown etiology in humans which respond to unique antichlamydial regimens include:

Editorial comment: Strong findings from their research. If you have any of these it suggests to me that at least an empirical course of the combination antibiotic therapy is strongly indicated, with or without serologyi.

Multiple Sclerosis (MSi)
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
Inflammatory Bowel Diseasei (IBD)
Interstitial Cystitisi (IC)
Fibromyalgiai (FM)
Autonomic nervous dysfunction (AND neural-mediated hypotension);
Pyoderma Gangrenosum (PG)
Chronic Fatigue (CF) and Chronic Fatigue Syndromei (CFSi).

Age-related Macular Degeneration

Age-related macular degeneration is one of the commoner causes of visual impairment in the elderly. See:< The pathology starts much earlier, though. The symptoms are loss of clarity in the centre of the visual field. As the disease progresses a grey smudge fills the centre of vision. There is evidence of an association with cpni. Vigorous treatment with antioxidants and mitochondrial support supplementsi may stop its advance.


"A combination of supplementsi (acetyl L-carnitine, CoQ10 and n-3 oils) was found to improve and stabilize vision in age-related macular degeneration (AMD). [Feher J et al., Improvement of visual functions and fundus alterations in early age-related macular degeneration treated with a combination of acetyl L-carnitine, n-3 fatty acids, and coenzyme Q10.
