Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever with lyme

Dear Stephen,
My 21-year-old son was diagnosed in 12/09 with lyme and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. He only has neuro lyme symptoms, nothing physical. He’s completely lost, confused, speaks only one word sayings, and you can’t even ask him a question because he can’t answer. He’s been on multiple antibiotics and IV since. My question: He’s not getting better, any herb that might help the antibiotics? He came off 9 months of IV doxycycline, and is currently on rifampin/bactrim/bicillin shots.

Stephen’s response:
Knotweed, rhodiola, ashwagandha, eleuthero. The knotweed is essential. But I would highly recommend work with an individual practitioner, my partner Julie McIntyre is excellent (
