I've looked into Houttuynia also. What brand to you get and from where?
We use the powdered herb from 1stChineseHerbs. Buhner recommends them as they are third party tested for contamination. Zahng sells houttuynia as does Nutramedix (in tincture form). WoodLandEssence also carries it but they appear to be out of dried herb and have fresh only.
Even a low dose of herbs along with your antibiotic protocol will increase efficacy of treatment. An additional complex of antimicrobial constituents is bound to weaken any bacterial infection.
