Hello...As I posted recently I was recently infected with Lyme for the second time...actually for the second time in the last four years. I did get better the first time. But I had lasting effects from the antibiotics. Irritable bowel, malabsortion of food, yeasties...mostly gut problems.
Now with me being reinfected, I'm back on the drugs and it is NOT good. The drugs are not agreeing with me and I'm very sick to my stomach. And getting yeasties again. Doesn't matter how much probiotics, yogurt, avoidance of sugar, etc. I do. It is just not good. I cannot do this long term again.
Can anyone recommend a more natural approach? Just because my belly cannot tolerate this. It has nothing to do with which approach I think is more effective, I just cannot take this. Running to the bathroom constantly...and screaming in pain...the drugs are shredding my insides.
How about the vitamin C and salt approach? Where does one get these items? Is it effective in your opinion? If it is not effective, is it harmful?
I already do the epsom salt baths.
I have Cat's Claw on hand, but haven't been taking it....this is good against Lyme, right?
Is it more important that I stay on antibiotics now, then do alternative later? Or can I do alternative now? Because it's a new and recent infection? I've only been on abx for about 12 days and it's already just hell.
Thank You in advance!!
