Hi, about 1 1/2 years ago I was taking Cat's Claw for Tendinitis (I hadn't been diagnosed with LD yet). When I had my first CD-57 it was 76 (Cat's Claw is suppose to raise your CD-57). I just had another CD-57 done after treatment and it was 34. I think the Cat's Claw was responsible for raising my CD-57 back then.
2001 symptoms started:
Tingling in fingers and toes both sides, not tested at that time for LD
2007 Summer tested pos. WB, diagnosed with LD, tested neg for co-infections thru Igenex
Abx - Doxy 100mg 2x/day for 3 weeks (before diagnosis)
Amoxicillin 1gm 2x/day for 1 month
Amoxicillin 1gm 3x/day with Probenecid 500mg 2x/day 5 months
Currently on Dr. Zhang's protocol
