In Buhner's book ("Healing Lyme"), he says he doesn't believe the evidence supporting use of TOA-free Cat's Claw is all that great, and he also thinks there is better evidence supporting the use of non-TOA-free Cat's Claw. He tells patients to use regular Cat's Claw, not the TOA version, and says he has seen it work fine. Remember, Cat's Claw doesn't directly kill the Lyme bacteria - it serves to support the immune system and boosts CD57 counts.
