Hello everyone,

My name is Amy Proal. I write for the science blog I've had severe chronic fatigue syndrome (and probably Lyme disease since I was never tested but had all the symptoms) for the last four years. But I'm here to tell you about a medical treatment called the Marshall Protocol that is completely CURING the disease. I was bedridden two years ago, and now am living a normal life - I'm working and even had the time to start my own blog about the treatment. If necessary, I may even quit my job so that I have more time to write about the Marshall Protocol. That is how strongly I feel people need to know about this treatment. There are thousands of patients on the treatment and nearly all are reporting improvement or recovery.

Here is a description of the treatment:

The Marshall Protocol uses pulsed, low-dose antibiotics to wear away at L-form bacteria, bacteria that have changed form and lack cell walls, making it easy for them to live for long periods of time inside the cells of the immune system. Scientist have know about these bacteria since 1895. You can see many pictures of them on my site.

Read this piece about the history of these bacteria:

Many scientist are working with them today. Read interviews with some of them here:

The key to the Marshall Protocol is that only low-dose, pulsed antibiotics can wear away at these mutated forms of bacteria. The low concentrations of the antibiotics are able to penetrate inside the cells where the bacteria hide. High dose antibiotics can't achieve this.

Also the treatment uses a medication called Benicar to activate the immune system. The medication binds the receptor that controls the activity of the innate immune system and activates it. This means that each person's OWN immune system, with the help of the low-dose anitibiotics can gradaually wear away at the L-form bacteria. When L-form bacteria die, they release toxins and cyotokines (proteins that cause pain and fatigue). So the patient will feel a temporary rise in symptoms. Since this reaction must be managed the treatment takes several years to complete. But it works!

Here are some interviews with patients reporting recovery on the treatment.

More patient success stories here:

Here is a direct link to the treatment website:

Marshall is a study site in which patients are part of a Phase 2 sutdy. Anyone can join and participate. The treatment is free and questions are answered by members of Autoimmunity Research Foundation, a California-based non profit group.

Please take the time to learn about the MP. It is the decision that will change your life forever and lead you back to complete health.

Feel free to ask me questions!

This sounds like a sound treatment.  I have visited the site many times.  The only thing that doesn't make since is the success stories.

They should change the title to improvement or great response stories.  I like many other want a cure not just a response.  Many treatments have given many a responsive outcome.  My doc is willing to try this but kind of mocks the cure statement.  I have yet to read one cfs person that was cured and back to living a normal life ie no signs or complications for 2 months or more.  I see Some sarc cures but not CFS.  If Trevor wants this credit he's going to have to produce numbers not just great science.

Although you and I are both interested in this stuff, many are not and just want to read ' Yhea I am cured' not well my left ankle stopped hurting and I am able to walk my dogs to the mail box...after 3 yrs of treatment.  That just doesn't sit to well with many.

thanks and will be researching further.

nice site you have by the way.  Can't wait to see a person with CFS in your interview section that is cured and back to normal life.

p.s.  I have read some lyme cures also.  I am in contact with one person now.  I believe CFS is bacterial in nature(l-form) but this whole CFS title has messed things up pretty bad and now many hold on to it as viral in nature,,, so now if TM can get those show me numbers out there I think we have a winner..

Hi presacanario,

I thought I might chime in here. Maybe my story would be helpful.

I got sick with CFS in 2002. I was diagnosed in 2003, and I started the Marshall Protocol in the summer of 2004.

When I started the MP, I couldn't fall asleep until 5 am, I had an insatiable urge for sugary food, I was depressed, I had very little energy (but thankfully just enough to continue working as an evening shift librarian), and I felt ill whenever I ate certain kinds of foods like broccoli or blueberries.

How am I doing? My mood is very solid these days. I go to sleep at 11 and get up at 7, I eat all the healthy food I want, I thrive at a much more demanding job these days, and just yesterday I went for an hour bike ride. I'm SO glad I did the MP. And while I can't say I feel 100% just yet (to me 100% means a couple hour bike ride), I just know I'll be that much better each successive month.

I'm actually the one who helped Amy, who wrote the original post in this thread, put up her blog at We both are firm believers in the treatment. We started off with different symptoms, her and I, but we both experienced the tell-tale immunopathological response, and we both are experiencing improvements (albeit gradual ones).

For her blog, Amy interviews MP patients. It doesn't really matter which symptoms they have. After sufficient time, nearly everyone from patients with Lyme to those with CFS and sarcoidosis seems to gets the immunopathology reponse-- and everyone gets better.

If you haven't done so, you should definitely check out the Marshall Protocol.
