Hi Sooverthis and welcome!
In my non-medical opinion I think it is safe to take Dr. J's CNS/PNS formula with minocycline (have known others who have taken both with no side effects). The CNS/PNS formula is very powerful in binding up toxins, ammonia (one of the worse toxins a person can get from lyme), heavy metals, etc.
Just to be on the safe side, I would call your pharmacist and ask if minocycline can be taken with alcohol, or you can google (bing) minocycline and see if there are any warnings as far as taking alcohol with it. The CNS/PNS formula has 2 versions, the 20% ethanol base (pharmaceutrical grade) and the apple cider vinegar base. I heard from others that the Ethanol base is better, don't know if that is true or not.
When I was taking the CNS/PNS formula, I was not taking any conventional antibiotics, I was taking either Borrelogen or Microbojen. Also, even if this test is years old, I found this really interesting (this is taken from Dr. Sara Jernigan's website): http://www.jernigannutraceuticals.com/
Click on Lyme Disease on the left side and then Borrelogen and click on more:
In 1997, we had IGENEX perform labs on our patients. Instead of having the
patient take a round of antibiotics, we had them take Borrelogen™ and collected
their urine for 3 days. At that time, for the test they used, a high positive
The data we collected showed the body was dumping the dead Borrelia
Burgdorferi at a count of 150 as an average, and we had some people who had a
count of 450.
We also noticed that we always needed Virogen™ with this formula,
so we included Virogen™ in the formula to also address the viruses associated
with Lyme, so the doctors did not have to buy 2 bottles. (But as we learned,
Lyme attracts all kinds of bacteria, viruses and mycoplasms, etc…so the line of
products also expanded).
Borrelogen™ has been the primary anchor to our protocol for helping the body
heal itself from Lyme disease. Before we made any other products, I had seen
more people benefit from this one remedy along with a well-rounded treatment
program, than just about any other. I have seen people in wheelchairs able to
walk, people who were bedridden able to function normally again, people with all
manner of chronic nerve and muscle pains greatly relieved. I get calls from
doctors and happy customers from all over the world thanking me for this one
formula. No one remedy is going to be the silver bullet that “cures” all that
ails you, but key remedies such as Borrelogen™ are primary tools in the journey
towards regaining the quality of life we all seek. I would use this remedy in
anything that even remotely looks like any of the 50 something chronic symptoms
of Lyme disease with or without a positive lab test. I am often asked the
question, whether or not Borrelogen™ can be used with antibiotics. Through all
the years there have been no reports of interference.
Borrelogen™ helps the body bring into balance the overgrowth of all of the
pleomorphic stages of bacterial spirochete called Borrelia burgdorferi, as well
as the often seen co-infections of Babesia microti, Human monocytic and
granulocytic Ehrlichia, and the many and varied elusive Human Herpes Viruses,
including the HHV-6. Again, Borrelogen™ is a combination of botanicals
specifically selected to help the body see and destroy the Lyme Bacteria.
Toxicity testing has been done on Borrelogen™ to verify its safety, and it was
found to be so non-toxic as to not need further testing under the FDA guidelines
since it is unlikely anyone would be drinking gallons of it.
Reporting only the highest score of the three-day urine collection the
majority of positive LUATs scored over 100 ng/ml.Out of the 68 LUATs performed
44 were reported as positive or highly positive, while there were 4 borderline,
and 18 negative results. The total percentage of positive scores was 73%. When
the nutraceutical formula was used instead of prescription antibiotics the
majority of positive LUATs were reported over 100 ng/ml, and as high as >400 ng/ml. Although a score of
>400 does not indicate that a patient is more highly infected than a score of
>45, it does indicate a high rate of antigen release which can only benefit
the patient. An interesting side-note, only seventeen of these 68 cases were
also tested by Lyme Western Blot IgM/IgG prior to taking the Borrelogen. All
seventeen subjects tested as positive or equivocal by Lyme Western
Borrelogen also has Virogen™ in it. Once one attracts the Lyme Bacteria, this
bacteria sets the body up to attract viruses as well as micoplasms and other
microbes. Virogen™ is the best overall remedy to assist the body in dealing with
Many Doctors use Borrelogen™ as a catalyst just to make other remedies work
better. This is a God-given formula and its
ability to help the body heal itself always amazes us. Please
remember this product is designed to help
only with bacteria and viruses not toxins, or other bacterial infections. You must have other products to restore,
repair and build the body. This is a tough illness. It takes time to undo all
the damage, which is why we usually recommend a 6 month protocol.
Well for 7 years without any symptoms ~ used Dr. Jernigan's protocol.
Our bodies are wise as they can heal themselves, all one has to do is nourish them properly. Thus it's about
the Immune System mixed with Daily Detoxing, a dose of Positive Thinking, and Lowering Stress Levels.
I come back to help others for others helped me when I was sick. Pay it forward!
