I read a lot of posts where many members will say you need to detox to help with the herxing and symptoms.

So exactly what is it you do to detox? I take epsoms salts baths with little help, I drink lemon water for indigestion with little help but I want to know exactly what I need to do to detox my entire body.

I am full of toxins and nothing really seems to help me.

The key to detoxing successfully is to do it consistently and really stick with it, otherwise I don't think anyone sees an benefit at all.  I certainly didn't.

If your elimination systems are pretty heavily blocked then it's going to take a lot of work on your part to get them open, and start getting those neurotoxins out.  That means that for a while it's entirely possible you might not see any improvements at all.

Here's the detox activities that I have personally seen work for me.

sauna, daily

water, at least a 1/2 to 3/4 gallon, daily

chlorella at 2 to 4 grams on an empty stomach 30 minutes before meals, twice daily

cilantro, whole fresh bunch at beginning of last meal of day, daily

garlic at 3 to 5 grams, freeze-dried only, daily

exercise, (vigorous walk 30 to 60 minutes), daily


Now you might follow this program for 2 weeks or more and see little or no improvement, but you must stick with it.  Right now you've got a rush hour traffic jam in your elimination systems. Just like with rush hour traffic, it takes a while for things to start really moving again even after the wrecks are removed and all the heavy volume clears out.

Dr Shoemaker's Protocol uses Cholestyramine to bind toxins and eliminate them Through the bowels I'm trying. His sites are www.chronicneurotxins.com and also www.moldwarriors.com

Hi BeeLyme.  In addition to what the others suggested, the supplement Milk Thistle and Parsley (by Nutramedix) can also help.  A healthy diet is very important.

Exercise is beneficial in many ways.  Dr. Burrascano also says that you will not get better without exercising.

Hi BeeLyme,
How often are you taking the detox baths?  Once in a while won't do anything.  Detox baths are meant to start slowly then eventually build up to 5 times a week, sometimes more.   Then of course are the detox foot baths.
I drink Green Vibrance as an "internal" detox plus it keeps my immune system strong.   Drinking Aloe Master is another great internal detox. 
Are you dry skin brushing your body every day?
As Ticker said, exercising is essential in getting better, one "sweats" out the toxins plus you are getting oxygen into your body (lyme bacterias hate oxygen).
These are things that have helped me and still do.
Hope this helps,
It's all about the Immune System mixed with a large dose of Positive Thinking...
This song is about my years with chronic lyme and being in remission for over 2 years:

I must add detoxamin, it works wonders for me. I do not know if there is a problem when you are on abx. I'm about to start next week so I just do herbs right now to stay above the water..

Hi Daco Wilce, welcome to the board!

Are you in Germany?  Were you also tested for the co-infections ticks can transmit--Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis (HME & HGE), Bartonella, and Mycoplasma?  This is very important.

Will you be seeing a Lyme knowledgeable doctor?

Hallo and thank you!

No I live in Sweden so I have to seek help out of country. Here they think it's all in my head! Yeah right, if I could make my body do the things it does, I should have my own tv-show, be rich and laugh all the way to the bank... It's not really like that...

Yeah I know that I need to find out if I do have bart or babs and the rest, at the lab they kind of talked me out of these tests. They were very honest about the fact that they never have had anyone testing pos for these co-infections. So to me it felt like a wast of money

I think I may have bart..

As we speak I'm looking my mail every hour for an answer from a German Doc, in the meantime I'm on my own. Well almost, I have one Doc here in Sweden, he is not afraid to try but I'm not sure he really knows what he is doing. He has turned it around in the past with zitro/doxy 40 day treatment and ketek/zitro 40 days, but February 2006 it came back with a vengeance, and I've been really sick since. He seems to be a little bit to careful.

I'm desperate to find a "real" Doc.

Hallo, Daco Wilce.  I bet Sweden is so beautiful!

I know of a Lyme doctor in Germany.  Maybe he could consult with your doctor?  If you would like his name and contact information, you can email me at ko_@bellsouth.net 

I have heard that the European strain of Babesiosis is worse than the ones in the US, but I don't know if that is true.  Many Lyme doctors believe co-infections need to be treated first for Lyme treatment to be effective.

I hope you can get the help you need soon.
