Comparison Between Treatment for Different Conditions

I have been diagnosed with Lyme Disease and I was chatting with my friend who has been diagnosed with MS. As we were comparing notes, he noticed that the treatments for several conditions were pretty much the same. I can't help but to wonder if doctors or researchers are comparing notes too? Are they noticing that these conditions have many of the same symptoms? Do they compare notes like the patients do and realize that no matter what "condition" a researcher is working on, it is coming down to the same treatments? 

Let's take a look at just a couple conditions here such as MS, Chlamydial Pneumonia, Lyme and ALS in this post. At the bottom of this post you can click on a further detailed article about other conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Crohn's Disease and Lupus.

I think there is a lot of "labels" thrown around for different conditions. But basically what they all have in common is "inflammation." Doesn't all disease start with inflammation? But what seems to be missing is the "cause" to said conditions. Is it an infectious agent such as Lyme Disease, Chlamydial Pneumonia or Epstein Barr? Is it a combination of infectious agents and possible elements from our environment such as pesticides and toxins in our food. Why do some people get sick but not others, is it that we are predisposed to some condition because of our genes?

And which factors do we need to change, add antibiotics in, take bad diet out? What is going to be the ultimate solution here?

Dr Wheldon's article on  MS and Chlamydial Pneumonia

Doxycycline 100mg orally once daily is taken with plenty of water.
Azithromycin 250mg orally, three times a week should be added.
(Roxithromycin, 150mg twice daily, is an alternative.)
When all this is well tolerated, the dose of Doxycycline is increased to 200mg daily.

Vitamin C 1G daily
E 800iu daily
Omega 3 fish oil daily
Evening primrose oil 1G daily
Acetyl L-Carnitine 500mg daily
Alpha Lipoic acid 150mg daily
Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10) 200mg daily
Selenium 200 micrograms daily.
N-acetyl cysteine 600mg twice daily
melatonin 1.5mg at night may be considered.

Dr David Wheldon believes he cured his wife with Zith, N-acetyl cysteine, and Metronidazol.

Treating MS, ALS and Lyme Disease with Antibiotics

doxycycline, azithromycin, and cefuroxime

Dr Burrascano's Lyme Disease Treatment Guidelines

*Amoxicillin- Adults: 1g q8h plus probenecid 500mg q8h; doses up to 6 grams daily are
often needed
*Doxycycline- Adults: 200 mg bid with food; doses of up to 600 mg daily are often
needed, as doxycycline is only effective at high blood levels.
*Cefuroxime axetil- Oral alternative that may be effective in amoxicillin and doxycycline
Tetracycline- Adults only, and not in pregnancy. 500 mg tid to qid
Erythromycin- Poor response and not recommended.
Azithromycin- Adults: 500 to 1200 mg/d. Adolescents: 250 to 500 mg/d
Add hydroxychloroquine, 200-400 mg/d, or amantadine 100-200 mg/d
Clarithromycin- Adults: 250 to 500 mg q6h plus hydroxychloroquine, 200-400 mg/d,
or amantadine 100-200 mg/d.
Telithromycin- Adolescents and adults: 800 mg once daily
*Augmentin- Standard Augmentin cannot exceed three tablets daily due to the
clavulanate, thus is given with amoxicillin, so that the total dose of the amoxicillin
component is as listed above for amoxicillin.
Chloramphenicol- Not recommended as not proven and potentially toxic.
Metronidazole: 500 to 1500 mg daily in divided doses. Non-pregnant
adults only.


CoQ 10
GLA (omega-6 oils) and EPA (omega-3 oils), derived respectively from plant and fish oils. This is
Fish Oil
Methylcobalamin B-12
CREATINE Creatine has been shown to be of benefit in neuromuscular degenerative diseases such as Lou Gherig’s Disease (ALS) and can be very helpful in supporting low blood pressure, as in NMH.

ALS Patients do a Combo Creatine and ABX Treatments

Is Multiple Sclerosis Curable?

Paul Le Gac noticed similarities between multiple sclerosis and symptoms developed in the aftermath of diseases like Rocky Mountain spotted fever and typhus caused by Rickettsia bacteria. [2] Rickettsia are obligate intracellular parasites that cannot survive outside a host. By 1966, Le Gac recognized that the Chlamydiae, another order of intracellular parasitic bacteria, might be responsible for MS. 

Le Gac tried treating multiple sclerosis with tetracyclines and other broad spectrum antibiotics, and reported a number of cures. Here is one of his case studies:
Mr. Maurice Q., a Belgian citizen, 46 years of age. Multiple sclerosis was manifested in 1955 by transient retrobulbar neuritis. In 1956 he became bedridden. As of November 1961, [he had been] totally quadriplegic for three years….
Antibiotic treatment and alginated baths were followed, within a few months, by a spectacular improvement.
In May 1962, Mr. Q. was walking normally. He was able to discard all assistive devices, and soon afterward went back to work as a freight–truck driver.
