 I need someone to take my hand and walk me through treatment. Alternative and otherwise. I live by a healthfood store and know how to get antibiotics smilewinkgrin My neuro symptoms are very bad. of course I have all the other symptoms also. Very very sick for a long time.
Doctors wont help me, I have to do this myself. Where to start?

MNC - Why won't doctors help you? Is there a LLMD in your area? Lyme (and coinfections) is so different for everybody. You can gain a lot of wisdom here and on other sites, but if you're looking for a do-it-yourself comprehensive response to Lyme I think your best bet is to read some Lyme books. There are quite a few that outline a natural treatment plan that are mentioned on this site by people who have tried it. For now I'm following my LLMD's advice, taking prescription meds, supplementing and cleansing, and working to keep my mind right.

Hope this helps.

I think Im going to start takeing some food grade DE that I bought for the chickens. When I get some money I will order that mud stuff(clay?) the movie and a book. Found a site that sells lyme test for pets. If you know of one that has home lyme tests for people please let me know, so I wont have to say Im a dog.

I have not tried any natural remedies; I'm new to this. However, a book I am reading called Healing Lyme by Stephen Harrod Buhner was recommended to me as a good one. There may be others on the sticky. Not sure. One way I selected some of the Lyme books I read was to go to Amazon and see how people rated them. A lot of people liked Healing Lyme.

I noticed last time I took my dogs in for their vaccines that there is a Lyme component and I found that curious. I have not heard of a home test for people, however, I have been told (though I have not yet verified it) that IgenX lab will test you without a doctor's order. If so, that at least would save paying a physician. It's been awhile, and I have a terrible headache so may not be accurate, but I think Dr. Burriscano, in his paper on Lyme, has a checklist of symptoms for people who think they may have Lyme. It's not a diagnosis, but could give you an idea. The link is in the sticky.

Good luck,

Rose

mother,

I wouldn't suggest treating on your own with antibiotics. Your liver enzymes need to be monitored and it can be dangerous if they go up too high.

In the sticky, there are links for natural protocols.

S. H. Buhner, in his talk at the 2008 Lyme-Induced Autism Conference, says the general way he thinks is best to treat Lyme is the following:

#1 - Stop the inflammation (caused by the Lyme, die-off, etc.). Recommended herbs are Japanese Knotweed or Stephania).

#2 - Support the immune system (can't get well without the immune system being able to do its job). Eleutherococcus, Cat's Claw, etc. are recommended herbs [be sure to read his book, "Healing Lyme"].

#3 - Collagen support (Lyme destroys collagen). Recommendations include Pregnenalone, Glucosamine Sulfate). I also know Vitamin C is important for collagen support.

#4 - Anti-Spirochetal treatments...such as Andrographis, Cryptolepis, etc. I found it interesting that he doesn't start with antibacterial agents but instead hits the inflammation, immune and collagen issues first...

And he also says to address symptoms with other things (herbs, nutritional supplements, etc.) as you go along, so for example, in his book he recommends Nettles for joint pain.

Having had my gut shut down by his protocol when trying to do it myself at home, I agree with this approach, and also believe it is essential to have the support of someone who knows how to use herbs for treatment of health conditions. Naturopathic physicians may not all be Lyme-Literate, but they tend to be more open-minded and are usually more experienced in working with herbs than MD's.

Take care,
