The only thing I know about ankylosing spondylitis is that there is klebsiella involved. Klebsiella is a very tough bacteria to fight because it is catalase positive, which means it can quench oxidation that the body uses to kill bacteria. So there might have to be an alternate route that the body would use, such as neutrophils or natural killer cells. (I'll look it up.) So one would have to enhance the immune system somehow. Candida is also catalase positive, I'll have to look into whether monolaurin or undecenoic acid would help with Klebsiella, too.

There is a forum of people with ankylosing spondylitis and it's supposed to be based on getting better by using a starch free diet. It's http://www.kickas.org, if I remember correctly. Not everybody there uses the diet, and there is mostly discussion of drugs used to depress symptoms. There are some people who are doing well through the diet.

Yes, that is the correct link for the AS forum, for whatever it's worth. There are many people there who put down alternative meds.

And yes, monolaurin is effective againse Klebsiella. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17966176

I will try to find out if Vitamin C might have a place.

This is about neutrophils/Klebsiella in the lungs, but at least shows that neutrophils are the mode of dealing with Klebsiella.

Does vitamin C help with neutrophil status? It does seem that vitamin c helps with neutrophil status. I understand, though, that you are asking about a protocol, maybe you already knew all this. But I will add that just because the patient's discs are welded together doesn't mean the disease is over and done with. It is still in the patient's body and will do more damage if not dealt with.

The book Anatomy of an Illness by Norman Cousins talks about how he treated his Ankylosing Spondylitis successfully with IV vitamin C.
