Has Anyone Tried The Coimbra Protocol?

Has Anyone Tried The Coimbra Protocol?

The Coimbra protocol is taking high levels of vitamin D and is seeing incredible results. There are other things you have to do as well but was wondering if anyone has tried it. I’ve seen people talking about it turning their lives around! Thanks for any info you have!

Yes my friend is doing it and with in Two weeks is 80% better. The protocol for Fibro is less intense than with MS. First week take 50,000 vitamin D for seven days and then only once a week do 50,000. You should have your doctor check your PTH levels every six months. Add vitamin K and B2. If you have a bad case like MS you stop all dairy products and maybe gluten. You should also take zinc and methyl vitamin b12 and methyl folic and magnesium and omega 3 and drink lots of fluids. You should stop any calcium supplements. Of course check with your doctor. And research all the information.

I looked it up after seeing this post. Looks interesting. My bloodwork shows my Vitamin D within the “normal” range. I take 2,000 to 4,000 IUs of Vitamin D depending on the season. This protocol suggests doses about 10 times higher. I wonder if the idea is that those ranges are not high enough for pp with MS, FMS, CFS/ME. It’s worth a try I guess. I would not want to try this without doctor supervision though.

I'm a nurse, so I went on line to reach it. This protocol is not endorsed by many Dr.s because it all depends on how your body responds to it. It can cause kidney failure, and even death. You have to monitor very very carefully and test your blood monthly. It also shows that it's only available through only 4 DR.s, so if it really made a difference, I think other MS patients would be doing this treatment. It's also expense due to the other supplements you need to take. Food restrictions eliminate all dairy, nuts, some fruits and vegetables. I think that it's still too new and they need to show more data on long term results. I wouldn't follow this protocol call for myself.

Interesting. It looks like only 4 doctors in USA practice this protocol, while there are many more around the world. It was emphasized that it should only be done under supervision of physician as well as regular lab testing.
