I looked up Buhner's protocol for Mycoplasma, and Houttuynia is one of the herbs he uses to treat Mycoplasma. He uses a number for herbs for Myco. My guess is that he uses it in tincture form, but the tea is a lot cheaper.
I am having an acute episode of what I think is Mycoplasma, and despite Trav.'s warning (sorry Trav), I have continued the Houtt. Tea, and have been taking Olive Leaf, and the fever is already gone, plus the cough is getting better.
I still have a sinus infection though, so I'm going to switch from Olive Leaf to Oregano Oil, and continue the Houtt.--actually it's a blend of Houttuynia and Elecampane Tea.
I'm also doing FAR infrared saunas (which might help you as well), and some other things.
I'll see if I can find the protocol for Myco. and post it.
If anyone else knows what to do for sinus infections, let me know.
