It sounds like you are taking all the right steps. It is wonderful that you came to this website and are communicating with Mel and everyone here.
To answer your question regarding the feminine wash, I just use the generic store brand. It is half the cost and just as good. There are so many good body washes now that are natural and helpful with our issues. Adding essential oils to the mix is helpful as well. Just not too much.
I hope you are feeling better very soon.
Thanks everyone for your replies, advice, and encouraging words. I had a nice phone chat with John B. He was able to answer my questions about Mel’s Protocol and offered other valuable advice to help restore health. I ordered the Support Kit Plus and some other items from Logos Nutritional and plan on starting as soon as I receive my order.
I also ordered a nasal swab kit from another website, that will test to see if I have MARCoNS (Multiple Antibiotic Resistant Coagulase Negative Staphylococci) and biofilm in nasal cavities. I got severely ill from toxic mold a little over 3 years ago which I believe caused me to get this dreaded disease. Many people who are exposed to toxic mold suffer from MARCoNS. If the test results come back as positive, I can hopefully start an effective treatment plan for that too.
Chrissy, I have used other antiseptic mouth washes like Listerine but it hasn’t helped. I also make my own oil pulling blend with MCT oil and add essential oils of clove bud, oregano, and peppermint. I didn’t know you could nebulize colloidal silver. I bet that would be extremely beneficial to break up the bacterial in my sinuses. Thanks for the tip.
Linda, your feminine hygiene wash idea might sound crazy to people without this disease but it doesn’t sound crazy to me. One of the things I’ve noticed that helps my face is using Lotrimin Cream and Miconazole Nitrate Vaginal Cream which are both anti-fungal creams. I’ll have to try a feminine hygiene wash. Do you have one you can recommend that’s unscented?
Maria, thanks for all the tips on what foods to stay away from. I try to avoid sugar and high carb foods, although I’ve been pretty bad with bread lately. I plan on being more vigilant when I start the protocol. I’m not sure if I can give up coffee though. I don’t put sugar in it. Does coffee and caffeine exacerbate the symptoms? I have Cistus Incanus tea, and I agree. It does help. I also take Cistus Incanus supplement pills.
Although I’ve been a paying member for over a year, I haven’t been as active as I should have. I plan on changing that. This post alone has been extremely helpful. Some of you have mentioned to read as much as I can from this site. Do you mean in the forum posts or other parts of the website?
I plan on joining the conference calls as well. I do better with verbal communication than with reading. Can you give me an idea of what’s usually discussed during the calls? Is there a weekly topic or is it a casual Q&A?
