  1. Here's the Cluster Quiz question you need to ask yourself after looking at the two following graphics on the frequency, severity and risk of COVID-19 with its relationship to the 25(OH)D3 serum concentration. \ Do you know your 25(OH)D3 serum concentration? Take care, V/R, Batch
  2. Hey Amholla, Good question. For starters, we've found the 12-Day accelerated vitamin D3 loading schedule at 50,000 IU/day for 12 days, a total loading dose of 600,000 IU of vitamin D3, to be effective in elevating serum 25(OH)D3 concentration by 60 ng/mL above the starting/baseline concentration. You're going to need at least another 10 days loading vitamin D3 at 50,000 IU/day to meet the minimum loading schedule. The following chart illustrates the time to respond to this treatment protocol in days from start of regimen with a significant reduction in CH frequency (from a mean of
  3. One of the best explanations for the cause of the euphoria many of us experience after a heavy CH hit follows. There's a cocktail of several known chemicals produced by the brain that can have a euphoric effect on a person. (Particularly after a painful CH). -Endorphins (The brain's natural opiates released in response to pain.) may be the most well known of these chemicals and they can be produced for a variety of reasons, one of which is, athletic activity or in our case as CHers, during a heavy hit. -Dopamine is another well known chemical that makes us feel good and can be p
  4. Hey Leo, Wives are quick to call us stupid. Ya gotta love'm anyway as they're usually right. Take care, V/R, Batch
  5. Hey Bob, Take up welding. Welder's O2 comes from the same distillation process as medical O2 and is stored in the same LOX tanks. After the initial cost of your first cylinder, the actual welder's oxygen cost is roughly the same as your medical insurance co-pay ~ $30 for an M-Size O2 cylinder refill. I've had an M-Size O2 cylinder in my garage for 11 years, last filled 10 years ago and it still has ~ 1000 psi on the gauge. Of course I also do oxy-acetylene welding and haven't needed oxygen as a CH abortive since developing and starting the anti-inflammatory regimen with 10,000 iU/day
  6. Hey Bilal, Good move on switching to the Bio-Tech D3-50. Data for 2019 from the online survey of CHers reporting since 2011, indicated an up-tick in raw efficacy from 82% to 88% of CHers responding with a significant reduction in the frequency of their CH or a complete cessation of CH in the first 30 days after I started suggesting this change due to its higher bioequivalence compared to the oil-based vitamin D3 liquid softgel formulations. There's nothing wrong with zinc glycinate so no need to change. There appears to be a higher bioequivalence in the Methyl Folate + compared to the
  7. Hey Bilal, I'm familiar with your problem. Spring pollen lets the CH beast try to open a big ol can of whupass on me If I let it. Fortunately with over 10 years experience with the anti-inflammatory regimen and lots of data from fellow CHers in the same boat, I've found loading vitamin D3 at 50,000 IU/day to 100,000 IU/day with the Bio-Tech D3-50 50,000 IU water soluble vitamin D3 for three to five days and doubling my maintenance dose from 50,000 IU/week to 100,000 IU/week with the D3-50s for at least a month keeps the CH beast away. Since the pandemic started, I've also titrated the
  8. Hey Sierra, I've sent you a PM that should help. Take care and please keep us posted. V/R, Batch
  9. I know Dr. Emmanuelle Schindler, MD, is working hard to complete this Yale study using psilocybin as a CH intervention.

    Oxygen safety?

    Hey John, CH Father's, Spiny's and Pebles' comments all hit the mark debunking the article in question. There are studies and then there are articles about studies. While well designed studies/clinical trials as well as their published results and conclusions must conform to accepted standards, good science and format, articles do not. This article was a POS. While the cited study at PLoS provides what appears to be consistent results from their study of oxygen therapy breathing 95% O2 and 5% CO2 resulting in "normalized" cerebral blood flow and that hyperoxia breathing normobaric
  11. Pebbles, I think we can agree, a gold standard, randomized, double blind, placebo controlled RCT of vitamin D3 and cofactors as an intervention for cluster headache is needed. Dr. Mark Burish, MD, PhD., Director, Will Erwin Headache Research Center, UT Houston Health Science Center and featured speaker at Clusterbusters conferences registered just such an RCT on ClinicalTrials.gov 30 Sept 2020. As Dr. Burish’s study is based on the anti-inflammatory regimen, I’m confident the results will be compelling. His study also uses a Crossover design feature where following the double bl
  12. Hey Amir, I sent you a pm. You can download the posted version of the anti-inflammatory regimen at the following link. http://www.vitamindwiki.com/tiki-download_wiki_attachment.php?attId=7708 It has the dosing details you need for all the supplements in this regimen. Take care and please keep us posted. V/R, Batch
  13. Hey Squizzlet, I'm working with a cluster headache group in Finland. They conducted a survey of their members regarding migraine headache. Of the 300 responders, 150 of these CHers also suffered from migraine headache. This is an eye popping statistic with less than 1% of CHers here in the US with migraines until you look at the map of Finland and realize half of the country lies North of the Arctic Circle, i.e., not much sunshine and when it does shine, the angle to the horizon is so low, the synthesis of cutaneous vitamin D3 is nil. There's another interesting statistic. The s
  14. Hey Amardeep, This may be a long shot, but here you go anyway. The following doctor may be the one you are looking for in India who treats CHers and headache patients. Dr Renu Mahtani MD 407, Millennium Star, Dhole Patil Road, Pune - 411001 Maharashtra, India Contact : +91-7887887665 (WhatsApp then call ) Email : mahtani.renu@gmail.com Website: www.renumahtani.com Dr. Mahtani is a neurologist trained in the use of the Coimbra Protocol. https://www.coimbraprotocol.com/the-protocol-1 This is a treatment protocol for remitting recurring multiple scleros
  15. Tmac, Seeing your doctor to obtain lab assays for your serum 25(OH)D3 calcium and PTH is prudent. As long as your serum calcium remains within its normal reference range and your PTH is in the mid to low normal range, there's no problem no matter how high your serum 25(OH)D3 assay. I get the same blurb from Quest on my 25(OH)D3 assays. I think it's computer generated. It's obvious something is interfering with the vitamin D3 enabled genetic expression that helps prevent your CH. If it's allergy driven as I suspect, it could be there's so much histamine in your system, Quercetin
