I've seen them mentioned previously, but I cannot recall which users or products exactly.

There may be threads on the topic already, I just realized. Though, maybe this will prove to be an updated account.

Experiences? Particular products?

Thank you

I believe Jinna posted about them so you may want to check her older posts.

The thing about homeopathic medicine is it is based on like cures like. So, it won't kill a bacteria, but it will help a sore throat, a runny nose, etc.

If for the first time you drink a cup of coffee it will cause excitability, restlessness, etc. So if you have hyperactivity you would want to take Cruda Coffee to alleviate those symptoms.

For runny nose or watery eyes you could take Allium cepa, which is like a red onion. A red onion being cut will give you runny nose and watery eyes.

Make sense?

My point is that you can probably find a homeopathic herb for achy joints, but I have not heard of a homeopathic medicine for lyme. I think you would need a homeopathic doctor to give you meds for each symptom. Possibly there are a combination of remedies that will definitely help lyme, especially help an immune system get strong enough to fight it.

Ledum palustre is what I hear most people using for lyme. I also have only heard of it used on an initial bite mark. I have not read about it with chronic lyme.

I believe Des Bios is the homeopathic treatment for Lyme and co's.


I'm thinking it works the same way the LDI does. Although LDI is even more diluted.

I found a thread on it:

That makes sense, yes. It aligns with how they’re made, too. Similarly, my doctor likened them to vaccines in that pieces of the offenders are used to make them. Something like that, right? I’ve meant to research it a bit more, but I’m a turd.

Anyway, she wants me to trial three tinctures from a company called Energetix. Bacteria-chord, Inflamma-chord, et Hepatic-Tone, taking me off of a series of Beyond Balance tinctures. They’re new to her. She said she’s only been using them on her patients for six weeks.

I’m fine with being an experiment of sorts, as they’re relatively inexpensive, I’ve been interested in homeopathic medicine, and their claimed effects would help me. But, what I’m concerned about is their lack of antimicrobial effect.

I’m wondering if she’s wanting to give my body a break, as some means of testing me, but I’m not so sure. She’s always seemed really knowledgeable, up until now. It’s never been a push to make outrageous purchases, tons of testing, etc. She’s genuine.

My diet needs work. My gut function isn’t in a good place. She always says my liver and spleen are swollen, which I believe. Detoxing is difficult for me, in between chronic constipation et busy lifestyle. Plus, we both think mold is a huge problem for me and that I need to get out of this house, or she can’t help me get much better, so I’m to try to contact HUD or Hab for Humanity (she claimed to have had patients experience success in a new home or remediation with her help in the form of letters et reasoning for the need).

Still, kind of rubbed the wrong way, especially considering my follow-up is not for five months. Long time. I’m kind of an acute patient, in my mind. I could easily dip in health in that amount of time. I feel like more frequent visits are necessary right now.

Though, I’m going to continue using essential oils, and, truth told, I could just call and order whatever tinctures I’d like, or request an earlier appointment.

I guess I forgot she’s wanting me to give LDN, CBD oil, et another supplement a try, as a certain doctor has said the combination can help. Though, I question the effectiveness, as the CBD recommended does not seem official, you know? I hear about people in Lyme circles using CBD oil, and it’s a legit oil, in a bottle, and often used in sizable amounts, di ba? She’s recommended 30mg twice daily.

I think she’s a very spur of the moment doctor, in some ways. She’ll hear about something from such and such doctor - granted, some are ones I’ve heard of, and I’m sure all have their merits - and then immediately seek to implement their suggestions in her own practice. It’s cool, to be on the cusp of what’s new, but kind of dangerous, also. Like I said, five months is a long time to deal with getting worse/not getting better.

I’ll try them, doing my own stuff for awhile, call if I feel I need something more, and work on the gut, detox, et mold situation.

Thanks for the resources at recommendations for where to look here.

Tonio, homeopathic medicines can be negated by a lot of things. Coffee, cinnamon, peppermint and some others that I can't remember off hand. I had difficulty in finding a toothpaste that did not negate the protocols.

But from what I read sadly in your post is your diet. Our immune system is way composed of our GI tract. If you eat poorly, you cannot expect your immune system to gain in strength. I can't say it enough -- our diets are huge in our recovery.

I think it is easy to think a pill, tincture or whatever someone can make will make us well, but I honestly think that a lot of healing can be done with right food choices.

I probably sound like a Mom here, and I am one. I'm not shaking my finger at you, just caring about you.

Happy Holidays Tonio. Now is not the time to feel guilty for all the holiday foods. You have to live and be happy.

Just as soon as you can take baby steps to a healthy diet. Not a complete overhaul all at once. Baby step to the good foods.

I so appreciate you too. <3

Well, I was going to say, but I didn't know how to do it, without coming across as rude.

Part of the reason I'm not very vocal on here is owed to the fact that people try to cover old ground, because they don't know my history, and I don't care to get into specifics on everything every time I post.

It's kind of irritating to be told about the importance of diet, like it's my first day on the job, or something, when I've been at this for years. I mean, I have been lazy about researching, treatment, etc. As well as money and access, I'm partially to blame for the fact that I'm still suffering as much as I am, I'm sure. But, still, I have learned some things.

That said, I should have clarified: my diet suffers in that it is extremely limited, as well as heavy in protein et fats. A ketogenic diet, basically, though without all of the yummy foods, like cheese or bacon. My concern is that it contributes to my struggle with chronic constipation, inflammation, and biofilm.

I haven't eaten anything even slightly offensive to commonly recommended diets in years. I've only recently started trying to take in things like sweet potatoes, squashes, et carrots again. I know diet is important. I'm trying to get back to a balanced state.

I've tried so many things for all that. I have an idea of what I need to do from here. I don't know what more could be offered here that hasn't been already. I just wanted to know about the homeopathic medicine.

Sorry for being a sensitive butthole. Though, one could argue I could have just searched it up and found relevant information, so apologies for crawling out of my hole.
