Good for you to be so informed about alternative therapies. Our daughter has just finished 2 years of abx protocols, and we are now continuing down the herbal path. We are both using Buhner's lyme/bartonella protocols and feeling much better for it. Buhner's associate, Julie McIntyre is available for consultation if you should feel like speaking with her.
Our consultation is tomorrow. I can't wait to speak with her.
I have copies of almost all of Buhner's books, the last one being the mycoplasma and bartonella coinfections book. It is a must read for anyone with lyme. I haven't read The Teaching of Plants yet, as I have been concentrating on lyme and co., but I am beginning to think Buhner is on to something here. It's the next on my list.
2008 - insect bite (bruise-like rash) - motor/vocal tics, emotional lability (including rage), age regressive behaviour, low level OCD, urinary frequency, diminished fine motor ability, insomnia. Waxed and waned with strep/viral infections.
2010 - Dx ADHD, motor tic disorder, high functioning aspergers, motor delay, probable PANDAS.
Jan 2011 - shin/forearm pain, cyclic IBS, foot (sole) pain, dizziness, palpitations, chest pain, anxiety/panic attacks, pick-like skull pain, pain and stiffness at base of skull, tingling in extremeties, chills and hot flashes, nightly fever.
June 2011 - Igenex PCR positive bartonella, IND lyme. CD57 18. Positive ANA (speckled type), heterozygous A1298C MTHFR. Multiple Abx, herbal, homeopathic treatment with LLMD.
Jan 2013 - Bartonella IgG titers have decreased from 160 (Jun 2011) to 80. CD 57 remains low.
April 2013 - Weaned from abx treatment. Continuing wth Buhner, Byron White, Zhang, methylation/detox protocols, Terry Wahls gf/cf/sf diet. Minimizing EMF exposure
