>>Did you know that it actually works on lyme as well as candida? Some have been cured from lyme on that alone!
My theory (as an immunochemist) is that each individual must deal with lyme/coinfections on an indpendent basis. What works for one person may not work for another. We all have unique immune systems.
'Curing' is a very difficult word for me to accept. The way I see it, is that a healthy immune system can keep e. coli, latent viruses, and most bacterial infections at bay. An initial infection with lyme/co-infections can cause many different reactions. Healthy invidividuals might get a little sick, but their immune systems are strong enough to keep it back, so the bacterial invaders might hide away, lying dormant for future mayhem. Stressed or immunocompromised individuals already have a stretched immune system, so their infection could be more severe, and also allow opportunistic infections (think candida, mold, parasites) to grab a hold somewhere in the body. So, after initial treatment with antibiotics, perhaps it does kill off some/most of the borrelia in the body. But, it might not help the body deal with co-infections and other opportunisitic invaders.
At this point, a weakend individual could take antibiotics for years and not rid themselves of a fungal infections. The antibiotics might help deal with the toxic elements of that fungus, but it certainly will not help 'cure' it. In fact, antibiotics might not cure the infection, but they do give the body a chance to strengthen the immune system and shut down the functions of those bacterial invaders.
In my opinion, your LLMD needs to look at all angles in treating all possible infections.
Exercise, diet, and eliminating stress should supplement those medications.
