    Is there something about Australia?

    It's called air conditioning. Edited to Add: I had an interesting exchange with Dr. Cicero Coimbra, MD, PhD, on his high dose vitamin D3 protocol for his MS patients. The starting vitamin D3 dose is 1000 IU vitamin D3 per Kg body weight per day. At 80 Kg, I would be taking 80,000 IU/day vitamin D3 if I was on his treatment protocol. When I asked why so many people had MS in Sao Paulo, Brazil where the Latitude is -23.5º North, about the same distance South of the equator as Key West, FL is North of the equator, so they should be getting lots of cutaneous vitamin D3 from the sun, he replied "They all have the same problem." When I asked what problem was that? He replied, "Air conditioning."

    Hello - First timer

    Have not posted in while -- But great news for me so far. I started the D3 Regime about six weeks ago. I am taking 15K of D3 and the rest that Batch has listed. my 25-OH levels are below. Near the high end but not over the top. I have been completely pain free since the evening I started the regime. Thanks to all you busters out there!!

    Don't let the beast win. Exercise is proven to help beat the depression to. Make a routine and set goals.

    Hiya Mj...feels weird to quote myself...but I'd just say (almost) the same thing: https://clusterbusters.org/forums/topic/4983-episodic-to-chronic-advice/ Still true 15 yrs later....tho I'd say "manageable" is the proper word. The attitude part was learned the hard way.....and it was for survival. YMMV on how ya get there. I had a life, loved ones, a job, a career...and things to frigging do....and this CH shit was getting in the damn way and threatening to take all of that away. "Not gun happen...read my lips". I realized it wasn't gonna kill me, why should it disable me? My belief it starts with the attitude...and living between the hits....a plan comes with research and advises the right tools (one of 'em being right here)………...

    Well we do live in a nanny state world. Put your seat belt on or you owe us $300. That way we can buy someone who doesn't want to work a 12pk of soda and twinkies. ....

    A comment and a question on your regimen: First, I am a convert! 33 yrs as an episodic sufferer where my cycles are now either every other year or perhaps every year. Went on the regimen last year along with Aimovig (and my usual verapamil) and it seemed to get better, quicker. This year I was noticing the shadows creeping in and jumped back into the regimen and ...knock on all the wood .... shadows are at bay and cycle has not kicked in. While I would love to see a clinical research institute verify your research, I am nonetheless so very thankful for leading the way and helping so many people out. Second, and apologies if it is covered elsewhere many times but - just had my 25 OH D serum levels tested and I am right at 80 ng/ml. Any advise on how to adjust the regimen to now maintain those levels and not go too high? thank you!

    Are you chronic or episodic? Are you taking sumatriptan pills or injection that stopped working. In general the pills are worthless and the injections or nasal spray are the best routes of administration. What dose of verapamil are you on. Quite often it requires doses in the 800-1000mg/day. You need to be followed by a cardiologist and see them after each dose increase to check your EKG and blood pressure. As for the oxygen we have found that the standard 15LPM is not enough for a lot of CH patients. A lot of us buy our own regulators that go up to at least 25LPM. I wouldn’t count the oxygen out until you read up on it here. Sometimes technique makes all the difference. Some people hyperventilate and have better success. I myself found much more relief with the 25LPM flows. If you need links to some affordable well made regulators let me know. And finally we get to alternative treatments which is what this site is all about. Click on the new users blue button at the top of the page. It will lead you to links about busting. Once you’ve read that stuff make a post in the theories and implementation section with any questions you may have. The alternative treatments are a very safe and effective way to abort a cycle or even prevent one. Brian

    Describing CH to non-believers

    Thanks for sharing Paul, when I watched my first couple of people getting an attack I said to my mother (I currently live with my parents) is that what I look like? I don’t look that bad. And much to my surprise she said it’s just as bad in a different kind of horrific way. She in particular worries about the pain I have to endure. It doesn’t matter how much I tell her I will never be suicidal she just worries about it. I see a psychologist on a regular basis, once a month to every week depending on how I’m feeling. Honestly since I’ve been dosing with mm (magic mushrooms) for over a year now I will only get a hint of depression here and there. I also think it helps with the hopeless feelings as I rarely get those thoughts either. Despite knowing my options for treatment are very limited. As for the emotional part I hadn’t been able to cry for over a year until a couple of weeks ago (I’m 18months since my first CH and I’m chronic). Then my mother told me about how her dentist asked how I was and she told him I was battling CCH he winced and said “he’s been through so much, I’m so sorry...” and I immediately started balling. Since then I’ve been fairly emotional at times and I try not to break down in front of my parents too much. When I look back at how much pain I’ve endured since I was 14 (I’m 40 now) it seems Unhuman. From serious third and second degree burns, bulging cervical discs, burn scars crushing my spine, the list goes on all in all 25 plus surgeries since 14y/o. But all that pain has prepared me to deal with the CCH (the worst pain of them all). Take a look at my post history to see more, I’ve rambled enough. Plus I have mad a few threads about mm cultivation with links. There are several ways to cultivate. Another option that may be better for you since your cycle has already started is to try LSA contains seeds. Click on the new members button at the top of the page there is a link to more info.

    Describing CH to non-believers

    @Pcaola besides being a place to learn and share about busting, this is a place to come when you feel low or desperate. This site has given me inspiration. Just knowing others have made it through decades of CH and how much psychedelics can help. Plus I have found in life there is always some one that has it worse than me and I have learned so much from them. Don’t ever apologize for venting/ sharing your story here. We have almost all been there.

    Heard this, it isn't verbatim. Politicians should stop practicing medicine without a license. They have no right to choose what we do with our bodies.

    The moral of the story is never leave your house with more than 20g to be in the safe side including the bag... in NJ it’s up to 5years jail. Freaking crazy.

    Since you have gone into episodic remission it would be a good time to study busting type alternative therapy. As an episodic my observations on GammaCre is similar and tend to agree on the Amovig. Busting clearly helps

    Episodic over 25 years now and the majority of my cycles did not end any way special. For me it took a while to grasp it but I know when my cycle ends because it is like a fog has been lifted. Unscientific I know but I just feel “normal” again.
