Blue, if someone had the magic recipe for chronic fatigue, chronic lyme, we would know right?
I see Buhner as a list of herbs! I mean, I take his suggestions, couple with more Chinese herbs, some dr. K's products, Indian spices and homeopathics and that makes already wonderful catalogue to start.
Add frequencies, be them through light or rife, or thoughts, or mudras, or acupuncture, or plasma remedies, well, you get zillions of possibilities to try.
Even if herbs go systemic, like some drugs do, I don't think they reach all parts of the body equally. Injured parts (old accidents, old infection damage) will certainly have a disadvantage.
Take TCM: if you have one or a few meridians in trouble, you may get so many problems in disparate regions of the body (hormones, digestion, sleep, excretion of toxins, metabolism, circulation....), how the hell a couple of herbs will heal such stubborn infections like lyme, bart or candida?
The sicker we are, more meridians get in trouble, more organs and systems get problems, then cause problems to the rest of the body.
The longer sick we are, again, more meridian problems. Then comes mind problems: we start to doubt healing is possible. I can say, just by experience, that when your mind gets convinced, the organs and systems follow your mind, your inner beliefs.
Someone told you, as a child, 'you're nothing, you're useless, you're stupid'. It will take a long time to heal from that mind-set, if the person who told you that were your parents or someone you loved or considered important. It takes quite some effort and luck to get rid of fixed mind sets.
Same as our own life, and experiences: once the mind set is fixed into the 'I can't heal mode', first that needs healing, so that the body heals.
I am just so very thankful for Buhner reading all these papers that barely any MD reads! Thankful he makes a summary for our limited brains to understand.
No one had ever studied all chemicals in a single plant. Stevia is not an exception. Who knows there will be studies in the future proving the contrary?
Buhner merely states what he found in the literature! I can assure you, he's an
open guy. I can see that by the addition of homeopathic suggestions in his latest books. WHen he wrote healing lyme and I had personal contact with him, he told me he had NO idea what homeopathy does. And now he's recommending them too!!
Siberian Ginseng helped me only a bit, like most herbs. They are one tiny little atomic part of what I did to get well. Even if each of these individual atoms did build my health in the end, I believe.
not only plants cannot heal completely people because we are too complex! We have so many different sets of problems to deal.
When I took most of Buhner's herbs from his first book Healing Lyme, I knew, for sure, that his coinfections suggestions did not work, but I liked his Borrelia suggestions. It became clear to me and others that Buhner's Healing Lyme should be called only Healing Borrelia.
Even if not healed from it, I could almost see how Bb got in trouble with a combination of his herbs in ROTATION. Fixed protocols never worked for me. Never. Even if I took some herbs like cats claw for whole 2 years, I still changed its amount, and added other herbs or took away other herbs (such as Eleuthero).
I think any treatment will go better when we stop thinking in terms of matter + chemicals + Newtonian physics.
Once you go into energy medicine, and the quantum world, you understand that treatments in fact, can reach unblocked areas, for example, that chemical molecules do not.
We may keep taking Vit D, Magnesium, Calcium, Zinc, whatever, but who says that our bodies are using them properly and not dumping them back mostly unused because our body's metabolism or meridians or organs or cells are simply not functioning well?
It's the same with herbs, drugs, even food!! Once there is an inner problem of the internal program, many stuff we take simply 'do not work'. It's not only fault of herbs, protocols, if you see what I mean.
Only when we treat the energy-body (meridians, mind, feelings, vital force...) we can give a step up, in my opinion.
Just some thoughts....
