I want to go the natural route. I really have no symptoms but I am not sure if the Lyme is gone. My last WB was negative by CDC standards. But we know all about that. I am having ill effects from the Doxy and I need to take a break. Looking into natural and want advice. How about Grapefruitseed Extract? Or Samento? Or Olive Leaf? I have heard great things about all of it. Also, do these kill the good bacteria in the gut??

Since getting off Rocephin I've been living on Garlic, Olive Leaf/Oregano Oil, high doses of B-complex, a multi vitamine, fish oil & milk thistle. Most importantly (!) look into getting a Good Quality of acidophilus, as the Doxy has killed all the bacteria in your gut and you will need to get a heavy dose of the good bacteria in there to prevent the lyme from having a field day. I've found that if I take the good bacteria before going to bed, in about 4 oz of kiefer, that it is most effective. I've felt pretty good for about 6 weeks now.

I'm guessing you know to keep a thousand miles from sugar and caffeine, and I haven't tried the grapeseed or the samento.

Herbs don't tend to be as harmful to "friendlies" in the gut as abx are, but it is always a good idea to take a probiotic supplement when one is trying to treat infections because the "friendlies" can help you fight the bad guys (Lyme, etc.) and I think also can help you hold on to what ground you've gained with abx.

My Lyme doctor has advised 10 drops Samento 3 times a day, plus 2 Filisa and 3 Simba capsules a day (these are African herbs). I was taking antibiotics but they made me really ill. If these herbs don't work he is going to out me on Lauricidin.

There's also Dr. Jernigan's protocol. See http://www.hansacenter.com/
