My LLND seems to think it works for Bartonella and probably Lyme too. He prescribed a homeopathic medication for me called Bar-1 and the first ingredient in it is Cat's Claw. I took it for over a month, and I just ran out and need to get more. I do feel a bit clearer in the brain than I have.....maybe the Bar-1 has something to do with it, since my doctor thinks that a lot of my neuro symptoms are from Bart rather than Lyme.
I've read that high doses of straight Cat's Claw is supposed to cause pretty strong herxes at times; I asked him if I could take it and he said I wasn't ready for that yet.
