  1. Hey Drewbie, Good move starting the anti-inflammatory regimen. I've had my entire family and close friends taking it since 2011 and none of them have CH. The first step is to see your doctor/PCP to discuss this regimen and to ask for lab tests of your serum 25(OH)D3, calcium and PTH. Without these lab tests, CHers are shooting in the dark. When you do get the results back, see where you stack up with respect to the studies in the following link. https://vitamindwiki.com/COVID-19+treated+by+Vitamin+D+-+studies%2C+reports%2C+videos Take care and please keep us posted. V/R
  2. Hey Drewbie, All, The basic regimen posted on vitaminDwiki is still valid for CH and MH. I was in the process of updating it with results from the online survey when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the US in early February. At that point I had two changes to supplements in the posted version. The first is we've found the Bio-Tech D3-50 50,000 IU water soluble form of vitamin D3 to be faster acting with a higher bioequivalence in elevating 25(OH)D3 serum concentrations than the same dose of the oil-based liquid softgel vitamin D3 formulations. I began suggesting this switch in 2019 here on t
  3. Re: Ditch the Quercetin – A little history When it was clear that a high percentage of CHers who were either slow responders or not responding to the anti-inflammatory regimen treatment protocol in early 2011, I began looking for reasons why. The common thread that immerged from all the feedback from CHers reporting this problem and searches of open source medical literature was a combination of allergic reactions and systemic inflammation. Both conditions involve the immune system. As systemic inflammation is common to nearly every medical condition and disease from colds to can
  4. Hey Krios, Falling out of CH remission while on the vitamin D3 regimen can happen to any of us. It happened to me in 2015 due to a pollen allergy and again in 2018 due to a mold spore allergy. We've learned a lot since then. The winning course of action to get back CH pain free is to start loading vitamin D3 at 50,000 IU/day, ditch the Benadryl (Diphenhydramine HCL) and start taking 3 grams/day Quercetin. Quercetin is an excellent antihistamine and unlike Diphenhydramine, there's no drowsiness or time limit on dosing. Bumping the Turmeric (Curcumin) dose to 3 grams/day also helps
  5. He Seff, Merry Christmas. Mold spores are bad news for me. I like your dosing plan. Check your InBox. I've sent you a message. Take care, V/R, Batch
  6. Hey Freester, Did you manage to obtain a lab test of your 25(OH)D3 serum concentration before stopping the anti-inflammatory regimen? After 10 years providing information outreach on the benefits of this 10,000 IU/day vitamin D3 plus cofactors regimen in preventing CH and receiving feed back from most, I've found that among the 18% who didn't respond in the first 30 days and who stopped taking this regimen, nearly all had failed to obtain the 25(OH)D3 lab test. In short, these CHers had no idea if they had elevated their 25(OH)D3 serum concentration into the therapeutic region
  7. Hey Tsmith, Your doctor needs to order your labs from Quest Diagnostics. Their lab for 25(OH)D goes up to 512 ng/mL. To my knowledge, the lab for the 25(OH)D3:24,25(OH)2D3 ratio is only available from Quest with a special form. I'd switch from Benadryl (Diphenhydramine HCL) to 800 mg/day Quercetin. Staying on Diphenhydramine for more than 10 days is not advised. Among other things, Quercetin in a good antihistamine. See my PM. Take care and please keep us posted, V/R, Batch
  8. Here are the results from the online survey I urge CHers to take 30 days after starting the anti-inflammatory regimen, with results of their 25(OH)D3 labs in hand. The following chart illustrates days to a favorable response from start of regimen. As you can see, this can happen rapidly. For the purpose of this study, I set the Favorable Response = at least a 70% reduction in CH frequency by at least 70% of the CHers starting it. I just checked the latest survey download from two days ago. After 9 years running, survey data from 340 CHers indicate 82% of CHers starting this regim
  9. Hey TSmith, Sorry to be so slow in responding. My bird dog must have missed your post or I missed its email alert. My suggestion is to see your doctor for the lab tests of your serum 25(OH)D3, calcium and PTH. If your serum 25(OH)D3 is still over 150 ng/mL and your serum calcium still in the normal range, there's something else going on. Reviewing the bidding. From your earlier post, you indicated you were taking the supplements illustrated in the following photo. The Bio-Tech D3-50 is proving to be faster acting with a higher bioequivalence in elevating serum 25(OH)D3 than t
  10. Loading at 100,000 IU/day for two days should elevate your 25(OH)D by 20 ng/mL which should bring your total serum 25(OH)D3 serum concentration up to 170 ng/mL. It takes roughly 24 to 36 hours for each dose of vitamin D3 to be hydoxylated by the liver to 25(OH)D3 so if there's no response 24 to 36 hours after the second loading dose of 100,000 IU vitamin D3, I would be tempted to add one more day at this loading dose. Of course a trip to your PCP/GP for another round of labs for your serum 25(OH)D3, calcium and PTH will be in order one way or the other in a week or two. The rest of
  11. Hey TSmith, Gotcha DD, You're doing great with respect to compliance (following the protocol) and keeping your PCP/GP in the loop. I love it when doctors are supportive of CHers starting this regimen. Your labs for 25(OH)D3, calcium and PTH are looking great. They also tell me you're likely battling inflammation with a 25(OH)D3 at 150 ng/mL and no clear reduction in CH frequency. I've been knocked out of CH remission with a 25(OH)D3 serum concentration around 120 ng/mL by allergic reactions. In both cases I needed to load vitamin D3 to elevate my 25(OH)D3 to around 188 ng/mL to exper
  12. Hey Bomachel, Do you have a copy of the latest version of the anti-inflammatory regimen treatment protocol? Take care, V/R, Batch
