Personally, I think it's fairly arrogant for anyone to claim that abx don't help after the first 2 week window, since it's easy enough to find many that have gone on to heal with abx use.
Abx did not work for me, but I do recognize that they do work for others - this may be due to differences in the strains of bacteria we carry, the number of infections we carry, the state of our body when we start treatments, mold and other issues that may prevent healing - and on and on and on.
Most people mistakenly believe that the way they healed is the only way to heal, so while some stories will resonate with some people, they won't with others. Don't let any one story scare the daylights out of you - realize it's that person's point of view only.
