Hi CajunGrl, Thank You for doing what your doing. I joined this group some time in the past, but to be honest do not remember exactly when. Have never really spent much time on the computer - mostly read books and articles on Lyme. I have both Lyme and Babesia. Probably have other coinfections as well, but at this point, these are the two that I am concentrating on. Have been on abx for the Lyme since 2006. Presently, I am taking Azithrymicin, artimisinin, Larium and Mepron in the hopes of killing off the Babesia. I was told by my LLMD that I need to get rid of the Babesia before I think about
getting rid of the Lyme. So.... since my first attempt failed (was trying to treat both at the same time), am sort of concentrating on just the babesia. I realize that I also need to work on getting rid of the Lyme, but I have had such a diffiult time dealing with all the abx, that I finally just told myself I'd concentrate on one thing at a time. I recently added grapefruitseed extract to target the cysts. Have omnicef which I will start when I stop the Mepron. My LLMD had me add the Larium about
a month ago to get the babesia out of my brain. She told me that the Mepron wouldnt or couldnt get past the blood brain barrier, so have to take the Larium. Havent had any trouble with it so far.
What I'd like to ask is whether there is anyone out there that has actually been successful in ridding themself of Babesia? I've had it, I believe, for most of my life (I'm 57). Not sure when I was bit, didn't have any symptoms with the exception of headaches which started at age 26. I was told by about
30 neurologists that I was either nuts or lying. Obviously they were either nuts or just plain ignorant. My husband is a physician and he didnt even know what was wrong with me so go figure.....
I read Dr. Schaller's book so am thinking I am on the right track. If anyone has any recommendations or suggestions, please feel free to comment.
Thanks to all.
