  1. Hey Dagobah, You've got the supplements and basic lab test schedule spot on. Kat is spot on about doubling the magnesium dose while loading to at least 800 mg/day. We're finding faster responses and a higher level of efficacy if CHers load vitamin D3 with 100,000 IU/day (two of the Bio-Tech D3-50 50,000 IU water soluble vitamin D3 capsules) plus 0.5 cc/day of the Micro D3 for a total loading dose of 140,000 IU/day. We've also found that staying at this loading dose until CH pain free for at least two full days before starting a taper down to an initial maintenance dose of 100,000 I
  2. Hey Nugget, Thank you for the update. Your 25(OH)D3 response to dose of vitamin D3 is spot on and looking great! Before I go any further, I need to ask a couple pregnant questions, What was your serum calcium? If it was within its normal reference range, there is no hypercalcemia (too much serum calcium), a.k.a., vitamin D3 intoxication/toxicity so your actual 25(OH)D3 serum concentration is no worry no matter how high it goes. Moreover and more importantly, what was the frequency of your CH with a 25(OH)D3 serum concentration of 124 ng/mL? If you experienced a decrease in th
  3. Hey Gail, My wife is 84, loving life and kicks my backside if I don't keep up with her. She's been following the anti-inflammatory regimen treatment protocol since 2011. She was a 20 year episodic migraineur until then. Hasn't had a single migraine since. I track her labs like a hawk. Her 25(OH)D3 averages 115 ng/mL (287.5 nmol/L) and her serum calcium id always in the green. We're both in excellent health and don't take any Rx medications. The treatment protocol is simple safe and effective. Here are the basic steps. 1. Discuss this treatment protocol with your PCP/GP.
  4. Hey Madam, Thank you for the update and feedback.. Your serum calcium and magnesium concentrations are fine. You have two problems. (1) You're not taking enough vitamin D3. A 25(OH)D3 serum concentration of 214 nmol/L (86.4 ng/mL) is too low for half the CHers taking this regimen. They need a 25(OH)D3 serum concentration between 90 and 180 ng/mL (225 to 450 nmol/L) to remain CH pain free. The following chart illustrates the normal distribution of lab tests for 25(OH)D3 reported by 313 CHers at baseline before starting this protocol (black) and after ≥ 30 days on this treatment
  5. Tony, The Big Pharma and Big Government Marxists and Elitists on the take from Big Pharma here in the US are trying to do the same thing. The only way to fix this problem is to vote their evil backsides out of office. 3/4 the members of the House and Senate here in the US have cashed campaign check donations from Big Pharma so this is a real problem. Ultimately it comes down to personal choice. Do you want good health with access to USP vitamins and minerals at effective doses or Big Government politicians who want to take away your freedom of choice so they can control everythin
  6. Luis, You've got a bug. Load up on vitamin D3 plus the cofactors and at least 6 grams of vitamin C/day in separate 1 gram doses. 50 mg/day zinc picolinate and 400 to 800 mg/day Quercetin will also help. Take care and please keep us posted. V/R, Batch Take care
  7. Tony, I can oder every thing I need with only a couple alternates from iherb.com, but that's from here in the US. Not sure if it will be the same from Finland. CHers in the UK and Europe have had good success ordering from iherb.com. Please save all the iherb links that result in the right products as there are others there in Finland facing the same problem. Take care, V/R, Batch
  8. Hey Spiny, You've done an excellent job of explaining the anti-inflammatory regimen to Nugget. I'll add that we can estimate an optimum dose of vitamin D3 and time has shown that 10,000 IU/day vitamin D3 is a good starting point. That said there are a few factors that influence the optimum dose that results in a CH pain free response. They include total body mass and BMI. Immune system activity particularly in response to allergens, infections, trauma, and surgery are also a major factors. Accordingly, the process I now suggest includes the accelerated vitamin D3 loading schedule whe
  9. Hey Bilal, Good question. Before I give you my take on maintaining higher doses of vitamin D3 as a long term maintenance dose, I need answers - What are the results of your most recent lab assays for 25(OH)D3, calcium and PTH? As long as your serum calcium remains within its normal reference range, your PTH stays above the minimum for PTH and you're taking all the vitamin D3 cofactors, there's really nothing wrong maintaining higher maintenance doses of vitamin D3. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients on the Coimbra Protocol, take a 1000 IU vitamin D3 per Kg body weight per day. For
  10. Hey Jfrillin, The next time you need to take your husband or daughter to the ER with a bad cluster headache, tell the ER receptionist, they're having heart pains. That will get them to the head of the line tout suite. Most ERs will administer an opiate like morphine and oxygen while waiting for an EKG. Both will help curb CH pain. Of course doing this is a white lie, but it does get you seen asap. The real solution is to start them both on the anti-inflammatory regimen with vitamin D3 and its cofactors. I developed this treatment protocol to help prevent CH in December of 2010.
  11. Hey Aylin, I've left you a message. Check your PM inbox. In the mean time click on the following link. It will download the published version of the anti-inflammatory cluster and migraine headache preventative treatment protocol. If you want to help your boyfriend, get him started on this treatment protocol. It will help control and possibly halt his cluster headaches. http://www.vitamindwiki.com/tiki-download_wiki_attachment.php?attId=7708 The following photo illustrates the supplements in this treatment protocol. You can order all of them from amazon and buy most of the
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
