I have a 10 year old son that has been treated for lyme for about 5 years with antibiotics and he was doing very well. He has been off all medicine and only on samento for over a year now. In the last couple of months however he is starting to have symptoms again. Just wondering if your herbs are safe for him? He weighs 77 pounds and can only take tincture forms since he has a hard time swallowing pills. Can he take cat’s claw and Japanese knotweed, and how much? Thanks for your help.
Yes, he can take them. Start him with 10 drops 3x daily of the tincture and see how that goes. If okay, you can increase them a bit to 15 drops 4x daily if necessary. If his symptoms are primarily arthritic, use teasel root tincture as well.
