I have had FM/CFS for 10 years. I was diagnosed with lyme disease 2 years ago by Igenex. I have tried antibiotics (and stopped—not the answer for me) and alternative therapies, including some of the herbs you recommend. Unfortunately, I’m getting sicker. I tested positive for mercury via DMSA provocation, and I think that’s as big of a problem as the lyme disease. I’ve tried chelating different ways (MSM, NAC, DMSA, etc.) and gotten foggier. I also have an electric light sauna and recently started nebulizing glutathione. What ways can I get heavy metals down safely? I can’t afford to lose more cognitively. Thank you for your help.
I would begin the intake of the following powdered mix (available from Dry Creek Herb Farm in California, ask for the Hep C formula WITHOUT the strong liver herbs): chlorella, spirulina, milk thistle seed, dandelion root, burdock root, bladderwrack, tumeric, licorice, astragalus, siberian ginseng, ashwaghanda. Take 1/4 – 1/2 cup of the powder and blend with juice and drink just before bed.
