It's been a bad Lyme week or two here. I don't know if it's a herx or regression. I've been on the same protocol since November and I'm supposed to add some more things now, but I don't know if I should wait and keep detoxing (herx) or go ahead and add the new things (regression). Any thoughts?

What are the new 'things'?

Are they antibiotics?

Mepron, cipro, artemisinin, enula, xylitol (not all at once).

so up to now, you've been on a less aggressive protocol - of a couple antibiotics for lyme?


No lactoferrin with the xylitol?


I think I would start it right away...is it M/W/F dosing for two weeks?

Oh yeah, I think lactoferrin too. I still need to buy some of these but I think I have the ones for the first week.

Yes, I've been pulsing 3 abx for a few months, and yes, it's MWF, adding the new things over a couple weeks and cycling for a couple months. I seem to have misplaced the protocol! Yikes. sad Off to look some more.

Still don't know what to do today. Yesterday I felt like I was losing touch with reality at times. So bad. Today would be a good day to start, though, schedule-wise.

You could wait until Monday...actually I thought all the protocols started on a Monday.

That a gives you a couple more days to detox.

I did start today after all. Wanted to be more established before working on Tuesday. Wonder which direction this will take me. My head isn't working again today.
