I was on a course of mino and it seemed to work well, but we had to switch after 45 days cause it was building up around my nerves. I was switched to another antibiotic. IMHO, you need more than one modality to get after these guys. ESP, if you have neuro symptoms.
Mine were really bad when I started treatment almost two years ago, and they’ve gotten way better. I couldn’t sleep, was having raging anxiety and panic, depression OCD and the like. There was no silver bullet or one antibiotic that worked, but combinations of herbs, enzymes, detoxifyers and antibiotics that slowly destroyed the pathogens day in and day out. Anyway, some herbs that may be useful: cats claw, gou teng, Chinese skullcap and Japanese Knotweed for sure. Blue sage is another one I’ve found good results with, but it’s hard to find.
Hope this helps....stay in the fight and you will get better. Find what works for your body, then take it back one day at a time.
What do you mean "...it was building up around my nerves."
How was that determined?
