My doctor gave me a long list of antimicrobials (herbs and pharmaceuticals ).
Despite his treatment plan, I decided to start them very slowly. First with just the immune boosters and artemisinin (before getting into BLT and then FAMVIR, MINO, FLAGYL AND CEFTIN....)
The first night, just half dose of vitamins and artemisia. I had some sweats and CRAZY HORRIBLE dreams (that may or may not have involved a skill saw and body parts....horrifying !)
Do people notice bad dreams when they start treatment for lyme? Babesia? Or all of the coinfections? Do the dreams relate to one microbe more than another? It seems pretty powerful that this could be happening with one half dose.
Terrified of what may come......I can take the dreams..its the herxing that will be the real nightmare!
AK - you first mentioned Artemisinin...and then later mentioned Artemisia.
Which one are you taking? not both I hope?
It's important to know which one you're taking because The Artemisinin needs to be pulsed, but the Artemisia does not.
