Hi everyone, I have been on this protocol for about
a month, and have definitely noticed good overall results. I still herx from time to time, mostly after taking the probiotic, but I am going to stick with it for at least another month. For anyone familiar with the protocol, does it seem like I'm doing this right? Any suggestions about
what I might change?
I mixed in some additional ingredients to the protocol as well. They are as follows:
Twice daily, about
12 hours apart, I take a dose of:
- Andrographis (800mg Pill Form)
- Grapefruit Seed Extract (600mg Pill Form)
- Cat's Claw (1000mg Pill Form)
- Organic Pure Cordyceps (525mg Pill Form)
- Skullcap (425mg Pill Form)
- Red Sage (550mg Pill Form)
After this, I wait approximately 45 minutes for all of the pills to start digesting, and then take an oral liquid dose of:
- Japanese Knotweed Extract Tincture (30-40 drops)
- Organic Liquid Stevia (10-15 drops)
- Protein Essentials Hydrolyzed Collagen (1 Heaping Scoop in water)
5-6 hours after these two initial doses, I take a refrigerated probiotic with acidophilus.
Then, after an additional 5-6 hours, for a total of about
12 hours after my first initial round of doses, I take the 2nd round. Again, taking the pill form ingredients about
45 minutes before taking the Japanese knotweed and stevia. They only thing I omit from my 2nd round of doses is the hydrolyzed collagen - I only take that in the am.
This treatment protocol comes on the heels of taking Ceftin orally for about
2 1/2 months ending in April / May for a positive IGENEX Lyme Lab Test, after which my LLMD re-tested and advised that my results had come back negative, and no further treatment was necessary, as I just needed to rest and allow my body to recover on it's own. So I've taken the summer off and decided to try out the Buhner Protocol for a few months just to be sure. I will be reaching back out the LLMD after I'm done with the protocol to re-advise, as I am leaps and bounds better than before seeing them, but by no means fully recovered. I was originally diagnosed with Lyme in 2010, and this is my 6th Dr. and 4th round of antibiotic treatment. At this point, I'm just so over it and want to make sure I'm doing everything right on my end so that this will *hopefully* be the last time I have to go through an aggressive treatment process. I need to be able to get out of bed and back out into the real world and resume normal life again, and I refuse to accept that this is going to be a life-long, incurable, disabling disease for me.
Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
