Sayya, I tried Elderberry, and it didn't do a thing. I think it was the syrup though, so that couldn't have been healthy. There's so much sugar in the stuff. Regardless, I was diligent about it, and it never helped.
Razzle, I'm truly scared of Andrographis. It sounds really powerful, and my body doesn't tolerate treatments of that sort. I think it would make me herx through the roof. You're absolutely right about the C, zinc, and B complex. I have NOT been vigilant about those.
RowingM, I've heard that we're not supposed to use Astragalus for Chronic Lyme? Unfortunately, Cordyceps also causes herxing!
Sarah, I'm sure I used to have a fungal sinus infection, but all of that cleared up when I started adding Goldenseal and some other things like Lomatium to my saline rinse. The doctor says my sinuses are fine.
It feels like plain old colds (at least in the beginning), and then I just get sick all over--hot sweats, etc. etc. Then it passes, until the next one, which can be only a week or so later.
I do know that my immune globulins were low at one point, and I was doing IG infusions. But my insurance copay isn't enough to cover the ig infusions.
I don't know if this is an immune thing, or, as I said, a symptom of cos. Does anyone know if you can get cold-like symptoms at the onset of a co infection flare
LOL, yesterday I binge ate oranges. I literally ate about five oranges. I didn't even want to eat anything else.
