hi Everyone, I hope you all had a nice Christmas!

Sorry, I've been away from the board for a while. I've had my ups and downs, mostly downs but getting out of that slump.

I don't seem to be making much progress other than getting bart under control. Still dealing with lyme and babs with oral abx (Doxy, Tinidazole), and cat's claw at the moment. (plus armour)

one thing I am perplexed about is my Neuro issues. they seem to improve on Vit-D but I've read that excess vit-D will modulate Th1->Th2 which I think doesn't help fight lyme. still reading up on that to better understand what is going on.

I do believe that is critical to have Vit-D and receptors working properly to ensure optimum immune system response. That is why I also supplement with Armour.

Trying to bring a few more herbs back into the mix but slowly. yesterday eve I had a strong anxiety episode, that I can't explain, perhaps a herx? my goal for 2018 is to get better at noticing changes and identifying what it is (herx, side-effect etc).

historically, I've been bad at going slow sad and tend to just start and throw things into the mix all at once out of frustration.

caramba!!! So good to see you again. You have been missed.

I have no idea about the Vitamin D. That is a new one to me. Let me know what you find out.

2018 for me is for both hubby and I to be healthy at the same time. It was nice that we were both treating lyme and the other could be the caretaker, but it sure seems like we didn't do much. First me with lyme then him. Now we are both doing well and I hope it lasts...... knocks on wood.

Thanks for the update!

Have you tried any pharmas for Babs or are you wanting to only go the herbal route for treatment?

What did you do to get the bartonella under control? Mine seems to be extremely resistant to treatment. boneset and grapefruit seed extract are the only things that really help.
