First thing - take a deep breath and relax a bit. This really is a LOT of information to process so quickly!!!
Then, if you are sure you wish to use herbs to heal, then be sure you see a doctor that is willing to use those herbs.
Only certain doctors are trained to use the Byron White protocols - although many here have had good progress with them.
Buhner's herbal protocol can go either way - you can try to do it on your own, or look to see if there is a practitioner near you that uses this protocol (see his site: buhnerhealinglyme.com/
There are other herbal protocols that can be used, but they mostly are ones that you have to do kind of on your own, although a practitioner that understands herbs is quite helpful!!!
You can choose to use abx too though. Some of the herbal protocols can be used at the same time as abx.
You first need to decide if abx are the right path for you - that would be the easiest one to start, but it's not right for everyone.
and hang in there!!! The longest of travels all start with that first step, then you take the next step. That's the best way to focus on treatments too to help keep you from feeling so overwhelmed.....and keep coming here to let us help you!!
