I get the impression Bansal is a really lovely doctor but really isn't very sure of what he's doing. Now I could be wrong but based on the supplements he tells patients to take I don't think I am.
His doses are a bit low and I know he's getting patients to inject sub q hydrox b12. Which is an utter waste of time. I tried telling someone this on twitter and they got annoyed with me...so much for trying to help. Anyway it bothers me greatly that he's doing this. Because hydrox is a total waste of time and it irks me!! Also I don't think he tells you to take methyl folate as well right? Patients might get away without it but they may not. We have massive threads on this on PR forum if you want more info those would be ideal to read. Fredds b12 protocol thread is prob 50 pages long.
Sadly I can't remember what else he gets people to take. But I remember feeling it wasn't that great. The ldn is a good idea but in my personal case I had a awful reaction to ldn. Apart from immune effects I wonder if it's simply calming the hpa axis down more than anything.
As for antivirals he won't prescribe valtrex or famvir becuase he's worried about the effects and prob doesn't want to be struck off the medical register. You have to remember that the medical establishment in the UK doesn't really permit doctors to really help patients even privately. So he'd be kind of screwed if he used (in my opinion) the correct drugs like valtrex, tenofovir, valcyte or famvir. To hit different viruses. But he can't because he'll loose his license.
Dr Weir I know no longer prescribes tenofovir but that's because he couldn't figure out which patients to give it to.
Acloyvir is a very sub prime antiviral. We've got no record of anyone ever going into remission on it and I'm not even sure they got much better on it? @Hip
can correct me if I'm out of line here.
Bansal is as I say a lovely doctor. He's taken my emails and given me advise without taking a dime. I'm just not sure he either understands or is actually able to (UK problem) do what is most up to date for the patient.
Comprehensive immune cd4/8/56 etc, igg and viral and bacterial pathogenic panel testing would be a good starting point to understand what issues the patient actually has. So the patient gets the right diagnosis and/or treatment.
I know I'm ranting a bit but it irks me massively that this is the best we have in the UK.
