Right, Peacesoul! This is why I always recommend that people use a good Practitioner. Although, many things can be tried on their own if one can't find a good practitioner. A person must realize that they must then be the practitioner, and look at every aspect of healing the body - not easy at all.
I feel that it's always good to know what options are available, as frequently a person will have to change things around in order to find what will work for them.
The Lyme protocol that I used can be found here:www.mistymeadows.org/wendy.htm
- I used the 'Chronic Tonic' on page 78 of "Lyme Disease: A Pratitioner's Experience & Discovery"
Although my practitioner did have me make the tea differently (I'll be happy to share the instructions if you would like), we used all the herbs in the amounts shown.
For Bartonella, I used only whole leaf Houttuynia - for 6 months before that stubborn infection finally went away.
For Babesia, we had to use many things, rotating through them based on my symptoms and how my body was doing - so I don't go into that as it was highly individualized.
The rest of my infections were treated by the above herbs, or were conquered due to my body finally functioning on a higher level again!
