Well, then, I think I will give the Mepron a shot -- esp since I have read that it is sometimes used to treat Lyme as well. Do you think this is true? If it is, then I will have 3 weapons against Lyme (augmentin, LDN, and mepron), w/ one of them a weapon against Babs.
As for abx, folks, I have no intention of staying on abx for years. (except possibly the LDN, which supposedly can halt the growth of many cancers. I think I would be safe to work this way for a year, adding detox, dietary corrections, plus more walking --- the day before yesterday I was actually able to walk very briskly w/ my dogs on one trail at the park, then back up the shortest one. And yesterday, I was actually able to hike our 2 favorite trails thru the woods, which I have not been able to do in a long time. And it did not esp tire me.
NOw I'm sure not talking major hikes, or even 3 mile hikes. I don't know their distance, however, we used to walk 4 trails which took over an hour, but lately I've only been able to walk the main trail going straight down to the lake, and had a very difficult time walkiing back. This trail back and forth is probably about 1 mile. We had missed our hikes on our woods trails.
I hope this is not just temporary -- it felt so different! I still have to use my walking stick because of so much back pain, related to rotoscoliosis and maybe possibly Lyme as well.
I will try saying 'yea rah Mepron!'
