I haven't taken it, though I have read about it and considered it. Do you find that it is working for you?
Undiagnosed lyme, bartonella, anaplasmosis, babs for 25 yrs with a 16 year old that I passed lyme and coninfections to through pregnancy. We both began treatment 1/6/11. Still treating. Daughter will be a success story hopefully in 2013!

I am too tired tonight, but I will try to stop back tomorrow and give some info about teasel. I've really been looking into it. Just read an article this morning that Stephen Buhner was quoted in, and he said that teasel doesn't work for disease originating in the east, but seems to work very well on infections that start in the Midwest, specifically, Wisconsin and Minnesota. He didn't mention anything further west.

Lady Barbara (ladybarbara.net) has a youtube video where she talks about getting Lyme 8 different times and curing it with teasel alone. She was on the super-small dose that some recommend. She's now been symptom-free for 10 years, I think I heard.

I can attest (and am obviously from Wisconsin) that it has a super effect on me. I got a reaction from one drop. Now, months later, I am up to 12 drops. I tried to increase it by one more drop over the weekend, but the effect was too much - pain, headache, terrible brain fog, fatigue. So, I went right back to 12.

I am not cured (Lady Barbara was supposedly cured in six weeks) after several months of teasel and several other things, but lots of things are better. I am encouraged by the research I've done over the last few days about teasel. It's one of the least expensive; a 4 oz bottle will last you a very long time.

So, we'll see. I just dropped Japanese knotweed. It was just making my system so acidic that my stomach was in agony. Now, for the moment, it's just teasel, cat's claw, sarsparilla and schizandra. Plus supplements.

I'll try to come back with some links -

I've been buying teasel root for the past 2 years because I was told in some cases it took a while to heal Lyme when we've had it so long. Everything I've tried I have gone overboard on giving them chances to work. It has not helped me yet. The one thing that seemed to help me most out out the thousands upon thousands we have spent was 'Chronic Tonic' and another mixture that just reads 'Stephania Root/Enchinacea' Compound along with their 'Lyme defense tea'. (I continue to take the teasel root with these) I spoke to the people and they told me to use it for at least 6 months, we decided on at least a year since I've been sick such a long time. I was seeing improvements till I hit a temp. rough spot financially and had to go without for a month. Since starting back (so far) I haven't regained that ground but I have not given up yet. This is my last option.

I could not believe the turn my daughter has made with banderol and samento. If you have not tried these two herbs then I highly recommend it. She is like a different child. Still has headaches but not as severe. The Herx reactions are nothing like they were. She is doing the Epsom salt baths to get rid of the toxins.

I took those for quite a long time.
I have fought Lyme disease for over 10 years, I have been bedridden quite a few years. I continue to pray for a cure.

T took teasel of about a year along with some other herbs and am not sure that it helped me. I now have a new practitioner and have switched to al complex by Byron white as well as some others.

I'm thinking of trying teasle root, soon.

Still need to give my gene mutation suppliments some more time though. To many changes at once will make one's head spin LOL.

After being on different lyme abx for a little over a year, I want to see if I get a reaction from teasle root drops.

Guess I just start with one drop on some friday night. ?

I used to take teasel as a tincture - was up to 1/2 tsp 3 x a day. Never felt anything particular with it. It will also be in the chronic tonic.
