Default Number of treatments.

She will need two treatments, total ,to get everything under control. She will have to be checked once a year, Dr. Shiels averages 1.7 treatments per patient. Some only need one treatment.
The good thing about this is, it isn't an FDA trial like OK432 and the dr. does not have to follow a protocol regulated by the FDA. The time between treatments is flexible and number of treatments are decided by patient and doctor. No other parties have a say. Dr. Shiels outcomes, using doxycycline for microcysts, is much more successful than OK432.
Thank you for your interest Missy!
