Interesting. I've been thinking that I'll try to put together an anti-viral protocol for myself to try once I've gotten the yeast overgrowth wiped out.

That's interesting. I take Celebrex and Valcyclovir regularly. Although after a challenge, I suspect the Celebrex of containing hidden gluten. Technically it shouldn't be unless Celebrex name brand is. But 'technically' is a poor indicator of truth.
I gave Celebrex 200mg and valtrex 500mg on reserve. I pulse this when my “ fibromyalgia “ flares up. I had severe pain was on fentanyl patches. This combo got me pain from severe and chronic to intermittent/ mild.
First time I took this for 6 months. I do pulse occasionally. In my case I had high igg for Epstein Barr . I was wondering about heroes simplex virus without the rash ( shingles without a rash) because my pain was severe.
This was my first big step in getting my life back. Still not recovered but able to enjoy my life again.

I traveled to Pridgen's office twice. I do think he is on to something; however, he is very heavy on meds. I had been sick with CFS since I had vaccines for Africa in 2012. I saw Pridgen in 2015 and he wanted me to take antidepressants and anti anxiety drugs in addition to the Celebrex and Valtrex because my husband had died of cancer. Everyone I was seeing in my home town thought I was appropriately saddened by my husband's death but did not need drugs to deal with just a word of caution. I also saw Doctor Dantini in Florida and preferred his approach.
