I have been seeing this doctor for the past month in half named Ruth Krizs who has been great. She has been working with me on getting my levels back to normal such as my vitamin D, Iodine, thyroid exc. I have been too many doctors and she is the first doctor who has treated me without using synthetic drugs which to me is great. My last blood test was to Fry Labs which of course since I’m writing this came out positive. Ruth Kriz has explained to me that I have small traces of bartonella and that I have to take two drugs one called plaquenil to flush this parasite out in the open and another antibiotic to kill it. What gets me nervous is that she states that I will feel like crap. She explains that where ever this parasite is living is where I will have the problems such as flu systems, headaches, inflammation, and rash exc. Has anyone taken these drugs and actually been cured. Ruth has not been able to state how long it will take to cure me. She stated that some of her patients have been on these antibiotics for over six months now. I am not big on factory made drugs and to be on and antibiotic for that long scares me any feedback would be greatly appreciated in regards to the drugs I have to take and side effects and why I can’t take these results to another doctor for a second opinion. I’m curious to know how you felt and are you cured of this mystery co infection.
