Unfortunately, no, not really. I was treated by a Master Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner/Master Western Herbalist and although she took my suggestions for treating Lyme and Bartonella, she devised her own treatment for Babesia. I have my records, but she was a typical doc - not very good notes and trying to decipher the hand writing is nearly impossible!! LOL!
I did my best to decipher her notes though and the notes about
treating Babesia can be found in the thread that I've included a link to in my signature line, but here it is again. As you can see, I'm at a loss for what all I took to get past this infection. It took just as long in treatment for me to beat Babesia as it did for me to beat Lyme disease - 1 full year - only there were a lot more changes of herbs and other healing modalities for Babesia! :
Okay, okay, I give!! LOL! I've really been hesitating as there were so many danged herbs that I used during the time that I was being treated for Babesia, but now that I've sat down and gone through it all much more carefully, I can see that most of them were used for symptom relief.
Holey Moley! My doc's handwriting leaves a lot to be desired!! Wow!
From what I can make out, the main herb used to treat my Babesia was Artemesia.
Zang agrees with this:
and although Buhner used to, he's recently decided that Sida Cuta works better for more people,but Buhner does admit that Artemesia will work for some people:
For those that are interested, I also used ear tacks a lot during this period and they were applied most often to the "Shen men" point, Autonomic point, and Zero point. And I actually did feel better when using these as I was going through treatment.
My doc had me use a combination of herbs that she mixed to increase my micro-circulation called:
Dang Gui Si Ni San (no, not a misspelling, just hard to find info on)
And a variety of herbs for treating symptoms.
Edited to add - I also used green tea during my treatment of Babesia.
