I don't know if I'd go so far as to call it a "breakthrough", but it is encouraging and an interesting new direction.
I'd hope that a lot of LLMD would be looking at this information.
Well this is what one of the top doctors have said and he's seen thousands of patients, that's why I quoted him... "getting to what I think's leading to a cure"
Curious why you've come to your conclusion and why you wouldn't go so far as to call it a "breakthrough"? Are you a Doctor? Have you seen multiple patients like Dr. Horrowitz?
Did you take Dapsone or Pyrazinamide? Maybe a friend did? How long did you take it? I'm curious... If so did you or he/she take it with Stevia or other persister cell antibiotics that Dr. Horrowitz recommends when your or he/she took it such as rifampin, and clofazimine.
I'm just curious, because I've heard others commenting on these drugs, some great, some good, some not so much.... I'm trying to help!A lot of you need to come to the realization, if these drugs can hack of months if not years of treatment for patients that never improved on anything else dealing with Chronic Lyme Disease, it's a breakthrough.
This is what Pyrazinamide did for Tuberculosis patients. These are persister cells drugs no one has taken before, they're trying to get to the root of the problem, as Dr. Zhang describes in this video. Scientists and Doctors will be able to replicate what works with these drugs and try them with other antibiotic combinations.
I'm sure other patients have complex coinfections that may not progress, but so far statistically speaking these drugs are working better than any other antibiotics on the market, I can tell you this is how Dr. Horrowitz came to this conclusion in the video.
All I can say is, I'm very optimistic about
the new biofilm drugs set to hit the market... I love how people are still saying it's no magic cure, repeating what others have regurgitated over the years on forums. People are starting to sound like parrots on the forums. Look, persister cell disease of any sort, whether it's Leprosy, tuberculosis, syphilis will take months if not a year to treat? That's how it is still with Leprosy, Tuberculosis, and Syphilis in other countries...
I am waiting to hear from my LLMD, but what do you think? Should I just straight to this?
Well this is the thing NicHostetler, these drugs do have more side effects than your traditional antibiotics, such as Dapsone.
You'll have to weigh the risk to reward ratio yourself. From your stand point of view, only being sick since 2016, and only trying weak herbs and antibiotics, personally you might want to try
maybe IVs if you can afford it, but you must pair it up with an anti-biofilm anti-round body antibiotic like flagyl or tindamax
But here's the thing and Dr. Burrascano talked about
this years ago, if you keep using weak antibiotics like you're doing now... Your infection may be harder to treat down the road, that's why Dr. Burrascano would start off with IVs first then trickle down with orals. He even remarked how if you treat with weak antibiotics first, then use IVs later, they do not work as good. This could be the same thing with persister cell drugs...
I completely believe in hitting the borrelia bacteria as hard as you can in early stages. This is why Mandy Hughes recovered in 7 months, because she hit it hard with IVs through Dr. Jemsek, but if you see the hell she had to go through with herxing, this is what you're up against.
I know everyone still regurgitates there's no difference between IVs and Orals on the forums, I've seen it millions of times. They get this mentality because a lot of people have failed with IVs. But look, statistically speaking, no other treatment has put patients in remission than IVs, until these persister cell drugs have come out... This what I believe, I'm sure plenty of others would disagree...
But here's the thing, everyone herxes differently, I never went through what she went through with herxing. For whatever reason, women are worse with herxing, women are just built differently then men.Charlie, could you add your email to your account so I can email you more about
some of the things I have tried?
My LLMD now wants me on mepron and Zithromax. I have been on Alinia and tindamax in the past, but only for a short time (three weeks each) and only alone. My LLMD works in strange ways that I don't always agree with. But just wondering if the Mepron and Zithro is something I should do, or push for these persistent combos?
I had a huge fair in sx in early 2016 but have delt with Lyme issues for much much longer. Probably most my life. I am 24.
