I haven't posted in a very long time. But I have a bit of experience with these subjects so I will add my two cents.
I did IV rochephin to start my lyme treatment. The idea was to hit the lyme hard, and as someone suggested, and see if the immune system gets more freed up to fight the viruses. But, that doesn't always happen. So after 12 weeks, my doctor put me on Valcyte for a CMV virus that wouldn't budge. The titers were still very high. I took Valcyte for almost half a year. When my insurance ran out I followed it up with monolauren a natural anti viral. The fatigue from the CMV is gone.
C Pneumonia is not a virus and must be hit with a combination antibiotic protocol like azith, flagyl and INH (isoniozid). See www.cpnhelp.com I completed this protocol as well. I do still take a CAP for lyme. I will have a CD 57 test to see how well that is coming.
I am doing well. These protocols have worked for me. I was very sick - house ridden- and I now work part time and manage my home with two teens (my husband travels alot with his job) with no crashes.
It's work, but worth it.
