yeah, I am willing to do more abx to a point. I am still on them now. I just feel in my instinct that I am gonna need the stronger herbs ( like the buhner or chronic tonic) to really get me over to staying well. I feel that I could be on abx for a while longer but won't be sure things would stay away after I stop. I feel right now that the herbals my llmd gave me are just not strong enough. So my plan is to stay on the abx for a while, and to add in the chronic tonic or buhner ( still researching that) and stay on that for like a year or more. And of course I will discuss this all with my doctor when I see him in 10 days.
Utahgal- I know, I just got the probiotics this time on amazon too- and they are much cheaper! The last time I went to the llmd for just the appointment and a few supplements- not even that many, I paid $600. Ugh! And now my husband is going too ( thankfully he is fine, not symptomatic at all) and it is just so expensive! We need to restock on one of the herbals and it is like $75 a bottle- and since we both use it we go through it quickly, and as I said the doses seems light to me. I am sort of figuring out that buhner and maybe some of the others do pretty high doses of the herbals. I wonder why my llmd doesn't. I had ben putting all my faith in doing just what my llmd said- because I really like him and think he really knows his stuff ( I am very cautious about
trusting doctors but I like this one). But recently I feel like I have to also take the power back into my own hands to amend what he says with my own ideas ( such as different herbals).
