Lyme with bartonella
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.
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 woodlandessence.com or email@example.com) ¼ tsp 3x day for 30 days
Hawthorn tincture, same
Japanese knotweed, (tincture, same dose as above, from woodlandessence.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, or capsules from greendragonbotanicals.com 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.
