I found the whole MAP / MAC postulate to be very convincing ... to the point where I tried to actually seek anti-MAP therapy. Here are the things I tried:
1) Contacted the Pharmaceutical Company in Australia whose anti-MAP treatment is in Phase 2 or 3 trials with the FDA (at the time they were not taking new patients; however their CEO emailed me back personally a very heart-felt letter on the subject.)
2) Tried Beck Protocol for eradicating MAC / MAP (not sure what I did wrong, but my symptoms seemed to get worse.)
3) Tried high doses of colloidal (NOT ionic) silver. Pure colloidal silver that do NOT contain proteins will not cause Aygyria -- that is a big misconception about colloidal silver.
Has anyone out there had success with anti-MAP/MAC treatments of any kind?
