Have you read my story? Abx were a VERY bad choice for me, even though I survived taking them for a year, I was bed ridden, and lost so much cognitive ability that I had virtually no short term memory, really didn't have any long term memory, couldn't follow instructions, couldn't remember how to type - oh man and so much more!!
BUT - once I started with detoxing only, then found a practitioner that was willing to treat me with herbs only and she supported all of the body functions while I detoxed more and then we started treatments - things started improving!
So don't say or feel like you are giving up!!! You have to switch gears is all! The abx route isn't working for you - it doesn't work for everyone. Some of us really do have to use herbs or other modalities to heal. So don't beat yourself up or say that you are giving up on treatment! You are only giving up on this one avenue of healing and going to a different one.
Hang in there!! We are still here to help support you!!
Keep working on your Osteopath to become LL!! They have to take continuing education courses, and the LL classes count towards that!!
