By August of 1996, Carroll R. of Lufkin, Texas, didn't know if she could drag herself out of bed anymore to get her three kids off to school. Diagnosed only eight months earlier she had been on a fast downward slide with chronic progressive multiple sclerosis. She spent about eighteen hours a day in bed, and most of the rest in a wheelchair. Extreme fatigue, numbness and tingling were her constant companions. Bladder and bowel control were only memories. Carroll's future looked grim; her unspoken fear of a future spent in a nursing home was also felt by her supportive husband. The only palliation offered to her by conventional treatment was 1000 mg of steroids 5 times a day.
A sympathetic and caring doctor offered her a thread of hope. He told her about Dr. Nieper in Germany and some of the success he had with his intravenous Calcium EAP treatment. Carroll's whole family helped to make her wish to go to Germany a reality. Her sister Sabria took charge of making all the arrangements for her trip and Carroll's mother took her to get her passport and flew to Germany with her.
Amazingly, with the very first treatment, Carroll was able to regain some bladder and bowel control. This was a constant source of encouragement in the many months to come, as other aspects of her MS were slow to improve.
Dr. Nieper's Protocol for Carroll
Dr. Nieper questioned Carroll carefully because he felt her rapid decline was due to something specific. He was right. That June she had gotten some puppies that turned out to have distemper and had to have them put away. Dr. Nieper was sure that this had triggered the exceptionally fast decline. He was adamant about people not having dogs or cats and was convinced that contact with the distemper virus was a contributing factor in MS development.
To slow down her decline, Dr. Nieper put Carroll on calcium EAP injections 5 times a week for 6 months. Then she was to go on 4 injections a week for another 6 months. Only after this first year was she able to go on 3 injections a week, which was the most typical injection protocol given to patients.
Although Dr. Nieper told her not to use a porta-cath, she was talked into it by someone else. A serious case of blood poisoning convinced her Dr. Nieper was right. From then on she followed his recommendations to the letter.
Follows Dietary Directions
Carroll maintained the dietary recommendations diligently. Her brother supplies her with homegrown cattle, her dad with natural eggs and chicken. Her husband and sons fish in the largest man-made lake in Texas, and she eats a lot of garden vegetables. She stays away from chlorine and fluoride, pesticides and foods with preservatives added. She stays away from taking the B vitamins niacin or thiamin as Dr. Nieper advised. Although she did not have her home checked by a dowser, she does keep alarm clocks at a distance and is aware of the influence of electromagnetic fields.
Slowly but surely over the first year of treatment Carroll's symptoms improved. First her bladder and bowel control was restored. Her hearing, which was affected, took about a year to improve. It took about a year and a half for her fatigue to be lifted so that she really felt "normal," like her old self again. A milestone along that path was her experience on a family trip to Florida a year after starting Dr. Nieper's treatment. She was worried that her health improvements would not hold up to the rigors of traveling. They did though. She still vividly recalls the moment in the airport on the way home where she was so happy to have been able to share this family activity that she said, "Thank you, God," and "Thank you, Dr. Nieper."
Maintaining Improvements and Establishing Equilibrium
Carroll works very hard at maintaining her health. She knows she still has multiple sclerosis. If she deviates very much from the diet, she gets some tingling back in her hands. She must get adequate rest and works at reducing her stress levels. She needs to control her environment and stay away from places with cigarette smoke. It sets off some hand tingling too. She eats to maintain her blood sugar stability. She has learned to tune into her body and work at establishing an equilibrium through factors she can control, like foods she eats, stress levels and sleep. She can now walk almost two miles or more every day, while her wheelchair gathers dust. Her husband says that she swings her arms as she walks to really get the circulation moving. The walking seems to help her get her small veins pumped up so that her husband has an easier time giving her the Calcium EAP injection. The continuing help and support of her husband are part of her success story too.
Carroll shares her enthusiasm for the renewed life she has received from this treatment with others on the phone and in person. Strangers can't believe she even has MS. She sums her story up with this comment, "My miracle began when God gave me enough sense to start this treatment!"
