I'm sorry you have to see your llmd again...
A frequently used herb for Bartonella is Houttuynia. My dr didn't want to prescribe it about
a year ago, but he started giving it to patients a short while ago.
I tried it myself about
a year ago (I asked my dr, he said there were no studies proving it's efficiency, but I know his way of showing he believes in it, so I gave it a try). If you decide to try it, go slowly cause it can cause some serious herxing (something I never felt before, like walking through a thick substance, for about
3 weeks, then it got much more tolerable).
