Aobut the Marshall Protocol - A curative treatment for CFS
Posted in the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Forum

My name is Amy Proal. I write for the science blog Bacteriality.com . 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.

Here is a direct link to the treatment website: www.marshallprotocol.com
Marshall Protocol.com 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!

I don't know how to edit my last post. I spelled the word "about" wrong in the title. Could someone tell me how to make the correction?

Do you know of any doctors/caregivers in or near Boulder CO who are familiar with and practice the Marshall Protocal? Thanks.

I have been ill with CFS for over 5 years. I have brain fog, it is very hard to concentrate and also of course fatigue. I also have trouble staying asleep and just feel lousy. Anyway, I have tried so many treatments and nothing has helped. Do you think the MP might help. I can't find a doctor. I live in PA. I know my Angiotensin II levels are extremely high. My Vit. D 1,25 was 47 (Assuming they did the test correctly.
Thank you so much and glad to here you are feeling better!

If this is actually curing CFS with the number of individuals (you said thousands of individuals) then why aren't we hearing on the various internet CFS forums from a huge number of them about their cure? I have always found that people on forums are very good about sharing things that help them (and if they were cured you'd think dozens of people, if not hundreds would have commented somewhere) with others yet have never seen people say that they have been cured by the Marshall Protocol.
Also, thousands is a fairly big sample size, has any clinical studies been done on this Protocol with respect to CFS since it is obviously so effective?
Thanks for the info!

I am really happy to read about your success. My husband has ALL the symptoms but the doctor will not test for this. How can I get him started?

Hey Amy---I have had overwhelming fatigue for 10 or more years. I have finally discovered that I had a atrial septal defect. It was repaired, and then cervical cancer entered. I had the hysterectomy in August 2008. I have been released by the cardiologist, and I have to follow up every 3 months with the oncologist for paps every 3 months, though no drugs or radiation, or chemo. I am SOOOOOO fatigued that I cannot get up some days. I have 3 children at home and I HAVE TO FIND AN MD and get started on treatment!!!! I am sooooooo frustrated. I have 2 medical licenses (RT and OT), but I cannot get anyone to take me seriously or do anything to help!!!!!! UGHH! Any ideas where to start? MD in the Columbus, IN that you know of?

I don't like the culture of the Marshall Protocol. Much of the protocol makes no sense and if you question it you get banned! For example, they falsely state that flax oil has vitamin D. In addition, they refused to look into the immune system enhancing qualities of milk thistle extract and banned a member just for stating that they had good result and faster healing using it. Email me at email@example.com for more information.
While I think that TH1 infection is real, I think that in order to evolve the treatment they need to be more scientific and less oriented around the personality of Trevor Marshall (an electrical engineer with no formal training in health care).

Did you have CFS, or Lyme disease? You do realize that they are not the same thing, even though they can have the same symptoms?
Why would you not be tested? I was tested to rule out Lyme disease. Lyme disease can be treated.

Most people including myself have lyme like disease and or CFS. For me it doesnt matter what I have as long as the treatment helps me.
CFS and Lymes disease are very much the same. Many people that test negative for lyme still have it. CFS symptoms and Lymes symptoms are identical and for most parts so is their treatment.

Amy, thank you so much for this thorough information about your protocol and cure. I am so happy for you. I am at present looking for a doctor who will potentially bring my21 year old CFS sufferer son through this protocol. Can you recommend some one?

Amy, excuse the duplicate message, but I may have accidentally written you in the wrong message box.
Can you recommend a Marshall Protocol doctor in the New York area for my adult CFS son?
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer up.
