The thing is we can't say that it's best to treat Bart first for everyone. It just doesn't work that way. That's why I ask everyone that I talk with, what are their most prominent symptoms, and suggest that they treat that infection with the most severe symptoms first - whatever it may be.
This is no different than those that have mold issues but can successfully treat Lyme and mold at the same time.
I treated Lyme first, as it was causing seizures, but Bart was making it so I couldn't stand for more than 7 minutes at time without my legs collapsing from the pain that was body wide in that amount of time. I added in Bart treatments (had to REALLY PUSH my doc to do so!!) 3 months later.
For me it was best to work in both Bart and Lyme treatments asap, because they were causing my most serious issues, so it was safe to assume that they had created the highest bacterial loads in my body. I knew full well that I may have to come back and retreat Lyme, and possibly Bart as well, once we got past the other infections, but something told me that those bacterial levels needed to be lowered before I could get to any other infections successfully. I'm glad I followed that path, and I think it's very individual for each of us.
And, Huddie, you're right. I've been with my hubby for almost 17 years now, and when we got together I had yet to get any diagnosis other than EBV and Fibro, which I knew wasn't correct. We had a VERY long talk about
our sex life, including kissing. I told him I may very well be contagious and he didn't care. He not only wanted to care for me, but refused to use any protection of any kind. pregnancy hasn't been a concern of mine for many years due to a hysto.
When he did get Lyme, it was on his own. I had a bad feeling one day about
the tick he had pulled off of him (but didn't know that it was due to that) and sure enough, about
a week later, he was starting to have symptoms. I had him make an appt that week with his doc and I went with him. There's no way to prove that he didn't get it from me, but that would make for quite the coincidence, since we had been intimately involved for over 15 years by that time.
