Dear Stephen,
I was diagnosed with the Fry Labs bartonella bug in March of 2010 and was put on 4 different antibiotics and bolouke for 4 months. I improved a lot but never fully recovered. I changed my LLMD for other reasons and have been up and down with symptoms ever since. My current LLMD clinically diagnosed me with lyme and I have been on minocycline and klonopin for almost a year. I was still having a lot of symptoms and looking for some answers when I found out about your protocol. I’m currently taking your protocol ( 6 weeks now up to 3×3 of each), my doctor’s antibiotics and bolouke. I feel like I’m starting over again, having a lot of my early symptoms returning (too many to list). Do you have any suggestions? Thanks for all your help and hard work with this disease.

Stephen’s response:
If you have bartonella, then you will have to treat it as well as the lyme. The best easy protocol for bartonella is:

Sida acuta tincture (from or ¼ tsp 3x day for 30 days
Hawthorn tincture, same
Japanese knotweed, (tincture, same dose as above, from or, or capsules from 2 capsules 3x daily)
ECGC 400mg +- daily
Houttuyina (Yu Xing Cao – 1st Chinese Herbs, powder) 1 tbl daily
L-arginine 5000 mg daily in divided doses
Milk thistle seed, standardized, 1200 mg daily

All for 30 days.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have active herpes, chicken pox, or shingles DO NOT USE L-arginine.

In general, the most important thing is to decrease the inflammation dynamics that are occurring in the lyme (knotweed), increase immune strength (cat’s claw, rhodiola tincture – ¼ tsp 3x daily, eleuthero tincture, same), and work on the bartonella. Plus addressing specific symptoms.
