I agree with tickbite666. Even if you have been treating for a long time, if you haven't been treating the right infections you will see little improvement. "Every herb and supplement?" If you give me your list, I'll give you mine.
Our daughter was treated with heavy-duty antibiotics for bartonella for 2 years - biaxin, azithromycin, rifampin, plaquinel, minocycline, tindamax, malarone. Many combinations and permutations.
Through Igenex testing she had been found to be positive for bartonella and IND for lyme. All of her symptoms were bartonella, she had 0 symptoms of babesia and tested negatively for it.
When we began this journey I intuitively knew that herbs would be her ultimate healing and I started reading ALL of Stephen Buhner's books. But I was unsure of myself and had been taught that mainstream medicine had all the answers; could properly test for any organism and would give the proper drug or antibiotic. My conceptions were Oh so very wrong.
So we started out by going to our LLMD. She was good. She knew her antibiotics. Knew all the tests that had to be done, but realized also that they could return false negative.
After 1.5 years of going after bartonella the LLMD started treating asymptomatic, negative testing babesia. But the antibiotics she used were not very effective, and although there was a little improvement overall, it didn't last. At that point she gave up.
So I immediately started Buhner's full bartonella protocol to make sure K wouldn't relapse. And what do you know, it held her for 8 months at the place where she had gotten with all of those antibiotics.
Not until I started K on Buhner's babesia herbs did she start experiencing a more complete improvement. She obviously needed to treat the asymptomatic underlying protozoan infection before she could heal from the bartonella and lyme infections.
Seriously, herbs have improved her condition far more than all of the above mentioned antibiotics ever did. They are more broadly antimicrobial and tend to cover infections that we don't even know we have. Some have compounds that stop the bacteria from being able to develop resistance (efflux pump inhibitors) and some help improve microcirculation to move the compounds more freely around the body. But you have to understand what you are doing.
Please don't ask God to take you away.
You need to let go of the resistance you have toward your infections. The resistance fills your mind with panic and anger and leaves no room for the intuition that is God giving you as his form of direction.
To receive intuitive knowledge you need to still your mind. Practice being in the moment, practice meditation. Your ego is based on thinking about
the past and the future and will make you either very depressed or very anxious. It is only in this very moment that life actually happens.
