I’m 41 years old, I had lyme 13 years ago, and got better after one and a half years. Three years ago I was diagnosed with type-1 diabetes (at age 38). My current nutritionist who has me on a really effective diet obviating the need for insulin, thinks I still have lyme underlying this whole thing. She wants me to take Japanese knot weed. Does this make sense, and if so, given that I don’t have “classic” lyme symptoms (I do have trouble gaining weight and have never felt as energetic as I once did), what should I take exactly? All the best, and many thanks.
I would suggest rhodiola tincture (Herb Pharm brand) as a general adaptogen (1/4 tsp 3x daily) and the use of pine pollen tincture 30 drops 3x daily directly on the tongue, not in water (WoodlandEssence.com). They should help your energy. The nutritional approach sounds great. This should help, too. I don’t feel knotweed is indicated here.
