LDN and Sinus Infection and a panicPosted on 05/19/08, 07:12 pm
The other day after having a month on LDN and thinking very highly aready of the benefits already walking around kitchen while making meals and exercising very effortlessly. I came down with a sinus infection, thanks to the mowing of the grass outside my window an by an unbagged mower. Along with the Chicago spring weather pointing to Spring and it never showing up I got a good old fashion sinus infection. My neuro told me to take more and extra vitamin C. So I read one of Larry's links and found Dr Lawerence who propurportied no need for steroids just like my neuro, I liked his thinking, others would put you in at the drop of a hat and put you on two iV's steroids and antibodotics. He said to take higher does of antioxidants and a aid for those which I used Grape Seed Exact, but he gave some other ones you could try I had some of the antioxidants that I was taking already so I added Selenium and extra C and vitamin e and beta catotene and I did so yesterday and I am doing so today and will do so tomorrow, do not know about Wednesday. It has helped me already I am able to walk across room to cook again and to bend down and pick things up and get in and out of bed with out any problems. Thank you Larry for putting that site on for me to find, with out hit and miss looking around. I have told many about LDN already and about how it has effected me so far it has been good. My doctor supports it so far.

Ive put off taking Vit C as the doc reckoned C would enable the immune system to launch a stronger attack on the CNS which seemed to make sence, but now that Im on LDN and the LDN is stabalizing the immune system am I to take it, it would now be ok to take C ?? I take at the moment ALA, omega threes, evening primrose oil, plus I try to remain healthy in what I eat...any input would be great :-)..........Long live LDN !! three nites on the 3mg and doing great :-) Nellie x

Yes, now you can take all the immune building vitamins like C. With immune suppressant drugs it would be counter productive to build your immune system when the drugs are compromising it.

Once on LDN, you can take anything a 'normal' person would take, in those doses. So if you were ODing on things to make up for the MS, go to RDA's

Hayfever and pollen allergens are so tiring. I did read that if you can find a local beekeeper who makes/jars up his own honey (local because those bees will be feeding on local pollens) and you take a couple of teaspoons a day of that local honey for a month before the season starts? that your hayfever/allergens will be less than if you didn't.
Of course, this may only be of help if you actually like honey. :D
Worth a try...
