    Anyone used or is using his protocol or would like to discuss it?

    I have not seen him (yet) but my GP was willing to prescribe Questran for me, and I am currently in my 3rd week. Initially (for the first few days) I felt much calmer on it. I now don't really feel a difference between pre-Questran and now.

    I have seen him, read his books repeatedly and discussed with him a bit. My detox on csm was fierce but eased up after a month. I had very nasty Mrcons. The culture technique shoemaker specs is essential. Other cultures had failed to find them. Treating them helped my energy a lot and got me well enough to do basic self care. He cant cure folks who have been sick for a long time but he can help. Epo can help too but is expensive. More later, S

    I tried Shoemaker's protocol including Questran, VIP, etc....

    The Questran did help while I was living in a moldy environment. I tried it again about a year after being out of the moldy environment but it didn't help this time. The VIP turned out to have little effect on myself and others I was in contact with. He's kind of fallen out of favor with other ME docs for some reason.

    There are a couple blogs out there that talk about his protocol, or were for awhile. My brain won't cooperate with remembering the blog names though.
