PATIENT SUPPORT

WELCOME, ALS and neurological disease warriors!

Our journey began with ALS, but now it has expanded to neurodegenerative diseases, stroke, traumatic encephalopathy, and possibly even psychiatric diseases. These diseases have one common connection: crooked and tangled mircotubules. Microtubules are small tubes that act like electric wires in the nerve cells. They allow the nerve cells to send impulses throughout the nervous system and also within the brain to enable the body to function properly. When they are crooked or tangled, the nerve impulses are not able to travel throughout the nervous system. Studies on human cells show that the Deanna Protocol straightens mircotubules.

HOW WE BEGAN

We began this journey helping those with ALS. Our patient #1 was Deanna, who was diagnosed with rapidly progressing ALS in 2009 and given 2.5 years to live. Dr. Tedone (her father) began researching and developing the Deanna Protocol to slow the progression of her disease, help her retain motor abilities, and extend her life. He eventually stopped her disease entirely and she has been alive and well since 2009, with no disease progression since the beginning of 2018. Thousands of individuals with ALS are seeing the same results as Deanna to this day.

OTHER NEUROLOGICAL CONDITIONS
WHERE WE'RE GOING: BEYOND ALS

We are now including other neurological conditions in our research goals for the near future, so we can help all those with neurological conditions who feel that the drug treatments on the market today are ineffective. While the Deanna Protocol (scientifically speaking) should help anyone with a disease in which microtubules are crooked or tangled, our desire is to study each disease specifically and tweak and optimize the protocol for each individual disease.

FOR INDIviduals with als

Given the extensive anecdotal evidence and scientific studies we have on ALS, we have come up with a set of protocols that has worked for Deanna and thousands of others with ALS. Should you wish to follow what Deanna and others have done (at the approval of your doctor, of course), our recommendations for how to follow along are below. Those who follow the steps below exactly as stated have reported much better outcomes than those who skip steps or follow them in the wrong order. If you are unfamiliar with our research, please visit our research section.

How Deanna Protocol was Developed

The Deanna Protocol was discovered and developed (and is continuing to be improved) by Dr. Tedone and a team of scientists. Dr. Tedone is a retired physician who dedicated his life to finding an effective solution to ALS. He started investigating ALS when his daughter Deanna was diagnosed with very quickly progressing ALS at age 32. Dr. Tedone investigated all studies on ALS from around the world and found that there were significant gaps in research. He discovered that many aspects of ALS research had not yet been explored, mainly because exploring these areas was not likely to be profitable for a drug company or research institution. Dr. Tedone’s goal was not money. It was saving his daughter’s life and saving the lives of others with ALS.

Dr. Tedone developed his own hypotheses to address the gaps he found in research. He tested them out by trying safe substances on Deanna and later funding scientific research, both himself and via Winning the Fight. Dr. Tedone came up with a formula that dramatically slowed the progression of Deanna’s ALS and helped her retain and regain some of her motor function and muscle function. This formula is was the original Deanna Protocol. According to neurologists that Deanna saw all over the country, Deanna was supposed to die in 2011. She is still alive today with zero disease progression. Thousands of others around the world who have ALS and are not satisfied with their drugs have chosen to take the Deanna Protocol and are noticing the same results.

What does the Deanna Protocol do?

The Deanna Protocol helps at a cellular level in two ways:

INCREASES CELL ENERGY: It delivers extra energy nutrients to the Kreb’s cycle of the nerve cells to help the cells make enough energy to stay alive. The Kreb’s cycle is a chemical reaction in the cell that produces the energy that the cell needs to function and live. Damaged cells need more energy to stay alive than non-damaged cells…kind of like a bucket of water with holes in it would need more water to keep it full than a bucket with no holes would…because the bucket with holes has a water leak. The Deanna Protocol puts more water in that leaky bucket to keep it full (more energy into the cells to keep them functioning)! We have found in anecdotal reports from thousands of individuals with ALS, as well as studies, that this is the case. LINK HERE: See our primary research section for proof of these studies.

STRAIGHTENS MICROTUBULES: ALS is a disease where the microtubules in the nerve cells are crooked and tangled. The microtubules are like the electrical wires of the nerve cells. They carry impulses (messages) from place to place within the brain and from the brain to the muscles to enable you to move your muscles in the way your brain wants them to move.  Studies (from the University of Central Florida) of ALS human nerve cells show that the Deanna Protocol straightens the microtubules in the nerve cells, to enable the messages to travel again. See our research section for proof of these studies.

How to find the Deanna Protocol by Dr Tedone

The Deanna Protocol by Dr. Tedone is available only at deannaprotocol.com. This protocol is an ever-evolving and ever-improving protocol based on science. Dr. Tedone developed the original protocol approximately 11 years ago. Since then, there have been multiple updated versions of the protocol based on scientific research. Dr Tedone has been the driving force behind designing, funding, and developing all improvements on the Deanna Protocol. The protocol has specific ingredients in specific ratios that have proven to be the most effective for ALS. The only protocol that has all of these up-to-date improvements, the appropriate ingredients, the correct ingredient ratios, and is endorsed and approved by Dr. Tedone is the one available at deannaprotocol.com. (The Deanna Protocol sold on the official Deanna Protocol Amazon site also sells the correct product.)

NOTE: TricaGenix, the company selling the true Deanna Protocol, is owned by Deanna and her two sisters, who recently decided to take control of quality control, manufacturing, and continuous improvement of the Deanna Protocol with the help of their father, Dr. Tedone, who advises the company as a volunteer. Dr. Tedone does not benefit financially from the purchase or sale of the Deanna Protocol. TricaGenix also gives a portion of its proceeds to Winning the Fight to further fund research.

STEP TWO: GET TESTED FOR BORRELIA INFECTION

Testing for Deadly Borrelia Infections Found in Most ALS Cases

We have found that Deanna and the vast majority of individuals with ALS with whom we are in contact have tested positive for rapidly progressing Borrelia bacterial infections. Borrelia infections that progress rapidly and/or are in advanced stages are dangerous, deadly, and they attack the nervous system. If you have a Borrelia bacterial infection, we found that it is impossible to stop the progression of ALS unless you kill the bacteria first. The nervous system cannot heal if there is a dangerous bacterium constantly attacking it. Many are under the impression that Borrelia is impossible to kill because most treatments fail and many patients lose their lives as a result. We have found a treatment and diagnostic protocol (not developed by Dr. Tedone) that has worked on everyone we know who has followed it correctly, including Deanna.

Borrelia can be Deadly and is Tough to Diagnose

Most Borrelia tests on the market are inaccurate and will yield false negatives, even when you are actually positive. This is because Borrelia predominantly hides in the soft tissue (muscles, tendons, fat, etc.), where it is difficult to detect. We have only found one testing plan on the market that has been reliable and consistent in diagnosing Borrelia. All others have yielded negative results when the people being tested were positive. Deanna was one of those people. Getting the wrong test and a false negative can make it very tough to access the correct medicine and start treatments because most doctors will not write the prescriptions without a positive test. (Note: We, Dr. Tedone, the Tedone family, and the sellers of the Deanna Protocol do not receive any financial benefits from recommending the tests and treatment plans below. We recommend them because they work.)

Do Not Cut Corners on Borrelia Diagnosis and Treatment

This is the most important thing you will ever read on this website: Failing to test for and treat Borrelia infections is not an option. Borrelia infections are very deadly. Those we know who have opted to cut corners in testing for or treating Borrelia have all died. This seems like a strange and overly harsh way to express ourselves on a website, but we feel that sugar coating it would be dishonest. Many don’t realize how serious this infection is until it’s too late. Some are reluctant to address Borrelia because the correct testing is expensive, and the treatments are inconvenient. To those of you who are reluctant, please, ask yourself: Is saving money and increasing convenience worth sacrificing your life? Please put your health and your life first! We would not be this forward with you if this were not of the utmost importance.

Testing for Deadly Borrelia Infections

Step 1: Provocative Antibiotics Protocol, developed by Alfred Miller MD. This test will draw the Borrelia bacteria out of the soft tissue in a way that it will be more easily visible in your lab test results. If you don’t do this step, you could get a false negative in your test.

For 21 days take the following (requires a prescription from any doctor):

  • Azithromycin orally 500 mg once a day
  • Flagyl orally 500 mg daily after you eat. You can substitute Tinidazole or Tindamax if Flagyl causes indigestion.

Step 2: Testing for the Borrelia infection requires a laboratory familiar with Borrelia infections. We recommend using IGeneX Labs.

1. Order the Blood Collection Kit from IGeneX. Click here to order online.
2. When you receive the kit in the mail, fill out the form and indicate which test you want. Choose TBD Panel #4. Have your doctor write a prescription for this test in case your doctor cannot draw the blood.
3. If your doctor draws blood, he/she can draw the blood and send the kit back to IGeneX. If your doctor does not draw blood, you can go to a private blood collection center or have home health nurse or in-home phlebotomist (someone who comes to your home to draw blood). If a home health nurse or phlebotomist draws the blood, you can have them send the kit back to IGeneX.
4. After you fill out the form mentioned in step 2, have your doctor or healthcare provider send the completed form in with the kit. Your doctor or healthcare provider send the completed form in with the kit. On the form, you must indicate which test you want. It is here that you will indicate TBD#4 panel.

NOTE: This is a very expensive test ($ 1,571) but may be covered by Medicare Part B. Typically, the test is not covered by other health insurances, but check with your
insurance company. This is the ONLY test we have found on the market that is accurate, so whether it is covered or not, please think of the consequences of doing the
wrong test when testing for a deadly infection. With the wrong test, it is very probable that you will test negative for Borrelia even when you are actually positive and it’s
very hard to get prescriptions for treatments with a negative test result. With no prescriptions, you cannot be treated for this deadly infection.

STEP THREE: TREAT DEADLY BORRELIA INFECTION

Most antibiotic treatments on the market are unsuccessful in killing Borrelia. Borrelia is very hard to kill because it is a hardy bacterium. It produces a hard cyst around itself to protect itself and that cyst cannot be penetrated by antibiotics. (This is one reason why there are studies showing that Borrelia is impossible to kill with antibiotics – because these studies do not include any medication to break the protective cysts. These protocols below do.)

Another thing these protocols below accomplish is they take into account Borrelia’s reproduction cycle. Borrelia reproduces every 21 days. When it reproduces, the cyst opens and it becomes a spirochete (a flexible spirally twisted bacterium). The spirochete enters the host cell and takes over the energy cycle, which over time kills the cells. It is while it is in the spiral form that it becomes susceptible to the antibiotics.

There are three versions of the protocol that cured the Borrelia infection Deanna had and all the other infections of which we know. With the approval of your doctor, you should choose the ONE that fits with your needs. The treatments below, by Dr. Alfred Miller, are not mainstream, so if your infectious disease physician is not comfortable prescribing something non-mainstream, typically integrative health physicians tend to be more open to their patients trying new things and deviating from the “norm.”

Every one of the three protocols discussed below serves four purposes:

1. To kill the Borrelia bacteria and to make it vulnerable to antibiotics and easier to kill.
2. To replenish the good bacteria in your system. Antibiotics this strong can be dangerous if you don’t replenish the good bacteria that you kill throughout treatment.
3. To keep dying cells alive.
4. To kill unknown pathogens (bad bacteria and parasites).

Treatment Choice #1: For Rapidly Progressing Borrelia Infections

1. Intravenous Pulsed Antibiotic Method by Dr. Alfred Miller

a. Rocephin – 2 grams every 12 hours (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday)
b. Tinidazole – 500 mg orally every 12 hours – Take one to two hours before the Rocephin. Tinidazole opens the cysts and allow the antibiotics to kill Borrelia. (Borrelia
bacteria is surrounded by protective cysts, which prevents antibiotics from getting to the bacteria.) – Monday Tuesday, Wednesday. This protocol is specific for the Borrelia
bacteria and the species and strains, known to date, to be found in this phylum. Co-infections (infections with other bacteria aside from Borrelia) may also be present and
require specific treatment.
c. Actigall – 300 mg orally 2 X a day – This prevents gall stones that can be caused by Rocephin – Monday Tuesday, Wednesday
d. Diflucan – 100 mg orally – This prevents fungal infections, to which you can become susceptible if you take Rocephin – Monday and Thursday
e. Culturelle ultimate strength – Take this daily to replenish the good bacteria in your gut that will be killed off by the antibiotics – Monday – Sunday
f. Butyrate Calcium & Magnesium (by BodyBio is the one Deanna took) – Take this daily to feed the good bacteria and keep them alive. – Monday – Sunday
g. NT Factor – 2 tabs three times every day. This repairs cell membranes from cells that have been damaged due to the Borrelia. Monday – Sunday

NOTE: The specific IV treatment protocol should be determined by the specific type of Borrelia present. Remember, not all Borrelia is the same species and coinfections can occur with other bacteria.

2. Cowden Support Program [CSP]

This is an herbal treatment program that covers many pathogens that may be present but are unknown. Deanna did this program while being treated with the pulsed antibiotic method and it made a big difference for her. This support program also addresses and gets rid of Herxheimer reactions. When the borrelia and other bacteria are killed, the dead bacteria left in your system can make you feel sick and cause symptoms such as stomach upset, vomiting, hot flashes, fatigue, headache, sweating, limb pain, joint pain, and a variety of other symptoms. Most people have more mild symptoms. For some with more severe symptoms, it can feel like a mild to moderate flu. The good news is that this is all temporary.

For most people who experience this, it only lasts a few hours at a time. In more severe cases, it can last as long as a flu would last, but most cases are not severe. These symptoms will go away with the Cowden Support Program Parts of the Cowden support program are designed to specifically address Herxheimer reactions and to make you feel better when you are feeling sick. Like all new protocols, please make your doctors aware that this antibiotic treatment specified in item 2 (above) can cause a bacteria kill-off that can cause a Herxheimer reaction. The drops specifically designated for reducing the Herxheimer reaction are called Burbur Pinella. Deanna took this and it worked. She took 10 drops of Burbur Pinella in 1/4 cup of water every 10 minutes for up to 2 hours. Click here to access the website that sells the Cowden Support Program. 

NOTE: Before trying anything new, always get the approval of your treating physician. Inform your treating physician about the potential that you may experience a Herxheimer reaction if you do this treatment.

3. The Deanna Protocol (“DP”)

The DP keeps cells alive so, that once the infection is suppressed, we may be able to retrieve them and preserve function. (Cells in the body renew naturally. However, once they die, they cannot renew. This is why it’s important to keep the damaged cells that would otherwise die alive, so they can be repaired and renew when the infection is gone.)

4. Absolutely no alcohol while on this treatment regimen!

Treatment Choice #2: For non-rapidly progressing Borrelia

1. Oral Pulsed Antibiotic Method by Dr. Alfred Miller

a. Ceftin – 1000 mg twice a day [500 mg tablets] – Mon, Tues, Wed
b. Probenecid – 500 mg twice a day – Mon, Tues, Wed
c. Metronidazole [Flagyl, Tindamax or Tinidazole] – 500 mg twice per day to open the protective cysts around the bacteria that prevent antibiotics from killing the bacteria –
Mon, Tues, Wed
d. Diflucan – 100 mg in morning only – Thursday and Saturday
e. NT Factor – 2 tabs three times every day – Monday – Sunday
f. R-Lipoic acid – One in the morning at least 30 minutes before eating Monday – Sunday
g. Probiotic – Culturelle and Butyrate Calcium & Magnesium (by BodyBio) at lunch time Monday – Sunday

2. Cowden Support Program [CSP]

This is an herbal treatment program that covers many pathogens that may be present but are unknown. Deanna did this program while being treated with the pulsed antibiotic method and it made a big difference for her. This support program also addresses and gets rid of Herxheimer reactions.

NOTE: Before trying anything new, always get the approval of your treating physician. Inform your treating physician about the potential that you may experience a Herxheimer reaction if you do this treatment.

3. The Deanna Protocol (“DP”)

The Deanna Protocol should be used in conjunction with whatever treatment modality is used because it keeps cells alive so, they may be revived later when the infection is gone. (Cells in the body renew naturally. However, once they die, they cannot renew. This is why it’s important to keep the damaged cells that would otherwise die alive, so they can be repaired and renew when the infection is gone.)

4. Absolutely no alcohol while on this treatment regimen! (This is serious. Drinking alcohol will harm you!)

Treatment Choice #3: An alternative oral treatment protocol for those who do not have
rapidly-progressing infections (OR do not wish to abstain from alcohol)

1. Oral Pulsed Antibiotic Method, by Dr. Alfred Miller

a. Ceftin – 500 mg – 2 every 12h – 1000 mg each dose –Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
b. Probenecid – 500 mg – 1 every 12h – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
c. Oregano oil- [Nature’s Way brand – over the counter] – 2 capsules q 12h opens cysts – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
d. Diflucan – 1 capsule every 24h – [Subdues yeast and opens cysts] – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
e. Artemisinin- [Doctor’s Best brand over the counter] – 100mg every 12h Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
f. Culturelle Ultimate Strength Probiotic (over the counter) – Once a day – Monday – Sunday
g. Butyrate Calcium & Magnesium (BodyBio Brand) – Once a day Monday – Sunday
h. Ivermectin – 0.2 mg/kg of body weight – First 4 Mondays only.

2. Cowden Support Program [CSP]

This is why it’s important to keep the damaged cells that would otherwise die alive, so they can be repaired and renew when the infection is gone.)

STEP FOUR: CONTINUE ON THE DEANNA PROTOCOL

Continue Taking the Deanna Protocol After Treating Borrelia Infection

Congratulations! You are Borrelia free! You have overcome so much, and you should be proud of yourself! This isn’t an easy journey, but those who stick with it see fantastic results. It is important to continue taking the Deanna Protocol, even after the Borrelia infection is cured for two reasons:


1. The Deanna Protocol will help keep damaged cells alive and will help them function and renew. Some of the damage Borrelia does to the nervous system is permanent. These cells that are damaged will always need extra nutrients to help them remain alive, which is where the Deanna Protocol helps.

2. Due to the permanent damage Borrelia does, some of your cells may still be in the process of dying. The Deanna Protocol can keep them alive so that, when they are ready to, they can produce new cells to replace the damaged ones. Cells can’t do that if they die before they have a change reproduce.

FOR INDIviduals with neurological
conditions other than als

For Individuals with Other Neurological conditions

The Deanna Protocol could help Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, stroke and traumatic encephalopathy. All of these diseases are diseases where the microtubules in the nerve cells are crooked and tangled. The microtubules are like the electrical wires. They carry impulses (messages) from place to place within the brain and from the brain to the muscles to enable you to move your muscles. In the aforementioned diseases, the microtubules become crooked and tangled and they cannot carry messages anymore. This causes the nervous system to malfunction. The nervous system absolutely cannot function correctly without straight microtubules.

Deanna Protocol Fixes Tangled Microtubules

Studies (from the University of Central Florida) on ALS human nerve cells show that the Deanna Protocol straightens tangled microtubules. Based on this study and clinical findings in ALS patients and a few patients with Alzheimer’s Diseases, we strongly suspect that the Deanna Protocol may be helpful for all diseases known to involve crooked microtubules, but we do not have enough data to make a definitive statement yet. Our next research goal is to test the Deanna Protocol on the other diseases and tweak it to create different versions of the protocol specifically tailored to the needs of each disease. We must also add that multiple psychiatrists have approached Dr. Tedone and believe that the Deanna Protocol has strong potential to be helpful in these conditions as well.

People with Alzheimer’s, MS, Parkinson’s, CTE, Strokes, and Psychiatric Conditions are Trying the Deanna Protocol

Many individuals with the diseases above have begun the Deanna Protocol because they have been unable to find drugs that are effective for their conditions. The substances in the Deanna Protocol are not pharmaceuticals and safe, provided that your physician approves that you take them. (The substances are all substances naturally found in the human body, but are needed in higher amounts when neurological conditions are present.) If you wish to test the Deanna Protocol and send us data on your physical improvements to aid our research, please follow the steps below.

Damaged cells need more energy to stay live than non-damaged cells…kind of like a bucket of water with holes in it would need more water to keep it full than a bucket with no holes would…because the bucket with holes has a water leak. The Deanna Protocol puts more water in that leaky bucket! This is proven in ALS cells only. While we don’t have studies on other neurodegenerative diseases yet, we plan to conduct them in the future. However, we do know that cells in all neurodegenerative diseases are damaged and die. The Deanna Protocol help damaged and dying cells remain alive by providing extra nutrients to the Kreb’s cycle. Therefore, it stands to reason that the protocol will do this for any damaged cell in any disease. 

STRAIGHTENS MICROTUBULES: Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, stroke, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy are diseases where the microtubules in the nerve cells are crooked and tangled. The microtubules are like the electrical wires of the nerve cells.

STEP TWO: GET TESTED FOR BORRELIA INFECTION

Testing for Deadly Borrelia Infections Found in Most ALS Cases

Dr. Tedone and his colleagues have found that many individuals with ALS and other neurological conditions/diseases have tested positive for Borrelia and other bacteria that attack the nervous system. Quite a few renowned psychiatrists that have contacted Dr. Tedone suspect that psychiatric diseases may have a bacterial infection component to them. There are some studies that even show the connection between these diseases and bacterial infections. (See our secondary research section to view these studies.)

Borrelia and Many Other Dangerous Infections are Under-diagnosed in MS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Stroke and CTE

While some studies show that the diseases above have links to bacteria, many other studies don’t show this connection, which is why there is no consensus in the medical community (yet) regarding this issue. In many studies that fail to show the connection between bacteria and the diseases above, there is one element in common: The tests used to diagnose these bacteria in the studies were not the most accurate ones on the market. In fact, most tests on the market are highly inaccurate…so it’s highly probable that there were many people with these diseases whose test results gave false negatives.

The majority of the tests on the market are so inaccurate that only a very small percentage of patients are correctly diagnosed. The reason why most tests are so inaccurate is because Borrelia hides in the soft tissue (muscles, tendons, fat, etc.), so it’s very tough to detect. The medical community still uses these highly inaccurate tests to diagnose these bacteria in regular people as well. This is likely (and unfortunately) because the most accurate tests are expensive and not covered by insurance. Anything not covered by insurance is not considered “standard of care” for diagnostics, so most doctors will not prescribe it unless patients specifically ask for it.

Are you ready to take control and find answers?

Either way, if you are serious about finding out whether you may have an infection attacking your nervous system, we have found the most accurate tests on the market are the tests below. Again, we (and Dr. Tedone and family) do not sell these tests, nor do we make money from them. Unfortunately, they are expensive, and they are not quick and easy, but they work. These are the most effective test that Dr. Tedone and his colleagues have found on the market. No tests have been found that match the quality of these tests. Remember: It is impossible to slow the progression of a neurodegenerative disease without testing, diagnosing and treating the bacteria that are attacking your nervous system. This bacteria can be and often is deadly, so please take this seriously.

Testing for Deadly Borrelia Infections

Step 1: Provocative Antibiotics Protocol, developed by Alfred Miller MD. This test will draw the Borrelia bacteria out of the soft tissue in a way that it will be more easily visible in your lab test results. If you don’t do this step, you could get a false negative in your test.

For 21 days take the following (requires a prescription from any doctor):

  • Azithromycin orally 500 mg once a day
  • Flagyl orally 500 mg daily after you eat. You can substitute Tinidazole or Tindamax if Flagyl causes indigestion.

Step 2: Testing for the Borrelia infection requires a laboratory familiar with Borrelia infections. We recommend using IGeneX Labs.

1. Order the Blood Collection Kit from IGeneX. Click here to order online.
2. When you receive the kit in the mail, fill out the form and indicate which test you want. Choose TBD Panel #4. Have your doctor write a prescription for this test in case your doctor cannot draw the blood.
3. If your doctor draws blood, he/she can draw the blood and send the kit back to IGeneX. If your doctor does not draw blood, you can go to a private blood collection center or have home health nurse or in-home phlebotomist (someone who comes to your home to draw blood). If a home health nurse or phlebotomist draws the blood, you can have them send the kit back to IGeneX.
4. After you fill out the form mentioned in step 2, have your doctor or healthcare provider send the completed form in with the kit. Your doctor or healthcare provider send the completed form in with the kit. On the form, you must indicate which test you want. It is here that you will indicate TBD#4 panel.

NOTE: This is a very expensive test ($ 1,571) but may be covered by Medicare Part B. Typically, the test is not covered by other health insurances, but check with your
insurance company. This is the ONLY test we have found on the market that is accurate, so whether it is covered or not, please think of the consequences of doing the
wrong test when testing for a deadly infection. With the wrong test, it is very probable that you will test negative for Borrelia even when you are actually positive and it’s
very hard to get prescriptions for treatments with a negative test result. With no prescriptions, you cannot be treated for this deadly infection.

STEP THREE: REPORT YOUR PROGRESS on the deanna protocol

Report your progress on the Deanna Protocol

As part of our ongoing research, we have discovered that the active ingredients in the Deanna Protocol have proven to be effective in patients diagnosed with muscular sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, and even CTE. In continuing that research, we ask that anyone using the Deanna Protocol for these, or other, purposes report back their results.

Help us move the research forward

After being on the Deanna Protocol for a minimum of three weeks, please email your story to Info@deannaprotocol.com. In the email, include the answers to the following questions:

1. With which neurological condition have you been diagnosed?
2. How long have you been taking the Deanna Protocol?
3. How many scoops of the Deanna Protocol are you taking? How many times per day?
4. Are your symptoms improving using the Deanna Protocol?
5. If so, can you please explain which symptoms and what has changed?
6. Did you use the provocative antibiotic protocol and/or take the IGenX test (TBD #4) afterward?
7. Did you test positive using the IGenX test? If so, for which bacteria?

Research is all of our responsibility

While we commit ourselves to researching neurological diseases, it takes an entire community to share their knowledge and their experiences. We learn from each other and can only beat this together.

Thank you very much for your participation and reflections.

STEP four: TREAT DEADLY BORRELIA INFECTION

Most antibiotic treatments on the market are unsuccessful in killing Borrelia. Borrelia is very hard to kill because it is a hardy bacterium. It produces a hard cyst around itself to protect itself and that cyst cannot be penetrated by antibiotics. (This is one reason why there are studies showing that Borrelia is impossible to kill with antibiotics – because these studies do not include any medication to break the protective cysts. These protocols below do.)

Another thing these protocols below accomplish is they take into account Borrelia’s reproduction cycle. Borrelia reproduces every 21 days. When it reproduces, the cyst opens and it becomes a spirochete (a flexible spirally twisted bacterium). The spirochete enters the host cell and takes over the energy cycle, which over time kills the cells. It is while it is in the spiral form that it becomes susceptible to the antibiotics.

There are three versions of the protocol that cured the Borrelia infection Deanna had and all the other infections of which we know. With the approval of your doctor, you should choose the ONE that fits with your needs. The treatments below, by Dr. Alfred Miller, are not mainstream, so if your infectious disease physician is not comfortable prescribing something non-mainstream, typically integrative health physicians tend to be more open to their patients trying new things and deviating from the “norm.”

Every one of the three protocols discussed below serves four purposes:

 1. To kill the Borrelia bacteria and to make it vulnerable to antibiotics and easier to kill.
2. To replenish the good bacteria in your system. Antibiotics this strong can be dangerous if you don’t replenish the good bacteria that you kill throughout treatment.
3. To keep dying cells alive.
4. To kill unknown pathogens (bad bacteria and parasites).

Treatment Choice #1: For Rapidly Progressing Borrelia Infections

1. Intravenous Pulsed Antibiotic Method by Dr. Alfred Miller

a. Rocephin – 2 grams every 12 hours (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday)
b. Tinidazole – 500 mg orally every 12 hours – Take one to two hours before the Rocephin. Tinidazole opens the cysts and allow the antibiotics to kill Borrelia. (Borrelia
bacteria is surrounded by protective cysts, which prevents antibiotics from getting to the bacteria.) – Monday Tuesday, Wednesday. This protocol is specific for the Borrelia
bacteria and the species and strains, known to date, to be found in this phylum. Co-infections (infections with other bacteria aside from Borrelia) may also be present and
require specific treatment.
c. Actigall – 300 mg orally 2 X a day – This prevents gall stones that can be caused by Rocephin – Monday Tuesday, Wednesday
d. Diflucan – 100 mg orally – This prevents fungal infections, to which you can become susceptible if you take Rocephin – Monday and Thursday
e. Culturelle ultimate strength – Take this daily to replenish the good bacteria in your gut that will be killed off by the antibiotics – Monday – Sunday
f. Butyrate Calcium & Magnesium (by BodyBio is the one Deanna took) – Take this daily to feed the good bacteria and keep them alive. – Monday – Sunday
g. NT Factor – 2 tabs three times every day. This repairs cell membranes from cells that have been damaged due to the Borrelia. Monday – Sunday

NOTE: The specific IV treatment protocol should be determined by the specific type of Borrelia present. Remember, not all Borrelia is the same species and coinfections can occur with other bacteria.

2. Cowden Support Program [CSP]

This is an herbal treatment program that covers many pathogens that may be present but are unknown. Deanna did this program while being treated with the pulsed antibiotic method and it made a big difference for her. This support program also addresses and gets rid of Herxheimer reactions. When the borrelia and other bacteria are killed, the dead bacteria left in your system can make you feel sick and cause symptoms such as stomach upset, vomiting, hot flashes, fatigue, headache, sweating, limb pain, joint pain, and a variety of other symptoms. Most people have more mild symptoms. For some with more severe symptoms, it can feel like a mild to moderate flu. The good news is that this is all temporary.

For most people who experience this, it only lasts a few hours at a time. In more severe cases, it can last as long as a flu would last, but most cases are not severe. These symptoms will go away with the Cowden Support Program Parts of the Cowden support program are designed to specifically address Herxheimer reactions and to make you feel better when you are feeling sick. Like all new protocols, please make your doctors aware that this antibiotic treatment specified in item 2 (above) can cause a bacteria kill-off that can cause a Herxheimer reaction. The drops specifically designated for reducing the Herxheimer reaction are called Burbur Pinella. Deanna took this and it worked. She took 10 drops of Burbur Pinella in 1/4 cup of water every 10 minutes for up to 2 hours. Click here to access the website that sells the Cowden Support Program. 

NOTE: Please keep your treating physicians informed before you begin this treatment and continue to keep them informed of your symptoms while going through this process. It is important that you specifically inform your treating physician that the kill-off of Borrelia bacteria can cause these a Herxheimer reaction

3. The Deanna Protocol (“DP”)

The DP keeps cells alive so, that once the infection is suppressed, we may be able to retrieve them and preserve function. (Cells in the body renew naturally. However, once they die, they cannot renew. This is why it’s important to keep the damaged cells that would otherwise die alive, so they can be repaired and renew when the infection is gone.)

4. Absolutely no alcohol while on this treatment regimen! 

Treatment Choice #2: For non-rapidly progressing Borrelia

1. Oral Pulsed Antibiotic Method by Dr. Alfred Miller

a. Ceftin – 1000 mg twice a day [500 mg tablets] – Mon, Tues, Wed
b. Probenecid – 500 mg twice a day – Mon, Tues, Wed
c. Metronidazole [Flagyl, Tindamax or Tinidazole] – 500 mg twice per day to open the protective cysts around the bacteria that prevent antibiotics from killing the bacteria –
Mon, Tues, Wed
d. Diflucan – 100 mg in morning only – Thursday and Saturday
e. NT Factor – 2 tabs three times every day – Monday – Sunday
f. R-Lipoic acid – One in the morning at least 30 minutes before eating Monday – Sunday
g. Probiotic – Culturelle and Butyrate Calcium & Magnesium (by BodyBio) at lunch time Monday – Sunday

3. Deanna Protocol (“DP”)

The Deanna Protocol should be used in conjunction with whatever treatment modality is used because it keeps cells alive so, they may be revived later when the infection is gone. (Cells in the body renew naturally. However, once they die, they cannot renew. This is why it’s important to keep the damaged cells that would otherwise die alive, so they can be repaired and renew when the infection is gone.)

4. Absolutely no alcohol while on this treatment regimen! (This is serious. Drinking alcohol will harm you!)

Treatment Choice #3: An alternative oral treatment protocol for those who do not have
rapidly-progressing infections (OR do not wish to abstain from alcohol)

1. Oral Pulsed Antibiotic Method, by Dr. Alfred Miller

a. Ceftin – 500 mg – 2 every 12h – 1000 mg each dose –Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
b. Probenecid – 500 mg – 1 every 12h – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
c. Oregano oil- [Nature’s Way brand – over the counter] – 2 capsules q 12h opens cysts – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
d. Diflucan – 1 capsule every 24h – [Subdues yeast and opens cysts] – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
e. Artemisinin- [Doctor’s Best brand over the counter] – 100mg every 12h Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
f. Culturelle Ultimate Strength Probiotic (over the counter) – Once a day – Monday – Sunday
g. Butyrate Calcium & Magnesium (BodyBio Brand) – Once a day Monday – Sunday
h. Ivermectin – 0.2 mg/kg of body weight – First 4 Mondays only.

STEP Five: CONTINUE ON THE DEANNA PROTOCOL

Continue Taking the Deanna Protocol After Treating Borrelia Infection

Congratulations! You are Borrelia free! You have overcome so much, and you should be proud of yourself! This isn’t an easy journey, but those who stick with it see fantastic results. It is important to continue taking the Deanna Protocol, even after the Borrelia infection is cured for two reasons:

1. The Deanna Protocol will help keep damaged cells alive and will help them function and renew. Some of the damage Borrelia does to the nervous system is permanent. These cells that are damaged will always need extra nutrients to help them remain alive, which is where the Deanna Protocol helps.

2. Due to the permanent damage Borrelia does, some of your cells may still be in the process of dying. The Deanna Protocol can keep them alive so that, when they are ready to, they can produce new cells to replace the damaged ones. Cells can’t do that if they die before they have a change reproduce.
