Protocol for 4 yr old


Dear Stephen,
My 4-year-old daughter was just diagnosed with lyme (tick bite then rash). She’s on amoxicillan for 30 days. I’d like to add your protocol to supplement the antibiotics. Which herbs would be best for her? Also, what dosages should I use? How do I do a partial capsule? Thank you.


Stephen’s response:
Astragalus is crucial at this point—1000 mg 3x daily. Normally dosages for children are the child’s weight (in pounds) divided by 150. With tablets or capsules you just break them open and divide as best you can for partial dosing.
Stephen
