I don’t half get confused about ‘cures’, I’m glad antibiotics worked for you Isola, have many other people also been cured by using your husband’s antibiotic regime and how did they refer? Can webuy the antibiotocs used over the internet?
I’ve been thinking about going for CCSVI (although the thought of knives cutting into veins terrifies me) or LDN, there’s no ‘approved’ drugs I could take as my MS has pushed me right over the hill, treatment wise (except for pain killers), there’s always someone pushing their own ‘cure’ on here from snake venom to tapeworm patches.
My own daft theory is that there are many ‘causes’ of MS, and therefore there need to be many ‘cures’, each one tailored to the individual depending on what triggered their symptoms.
I don’t mean to cause offense but could it be that you just eventually recovered from a severe relapse over the course of time that you were given the antibiotics? That did happen to me in the early days of MS, I could be severely ill and in relapse for months and months but gradually my body would recover with rest and I’d be back to a level of normality.
I often wonder if this has happened to some of the people who are magically 'cured’by some of the more outlandish remedies, time = equals recovery for some of them. The others have assumed that their alternative treatment hasn’t worked and the charlatans have pocketed the profits :(.
Those of us with no other hope are sitting ducks for nefarious individuals promoting ‘the cure’,at a cost.
I’m certainly not suggesting your husband is a charlatan and would be interested to at the long term statistics from antibiotic therapy e.g. how many were cured, from and to what degree and how many ‘stayed’ cured for months, years afterwards etc.
Best wishes to you and Dr Whelan.
