Thanks everyone for the responses. I just did the Buhner Protocol for Lyme. I've tested positive for Lyme twice w/ IgeneX, but negative for all co-infections each time I was tested. Over the past 6-7 years, I have been on multiple antibiotic protocols, most recently 3 months of Ceftin at the beginning of 2017 after testing positive for Lyme again with IgeneX. After the three months of Abx, my follow-up IgeneX Lyme test came back negative and my doctor advised that Abx were no longer necessary, and I just needed to let me body take time to heal.
After posting about
the Dr's response on this forum, I was advised by many on here that 3 months of Abx was probably not long enough, so I took up the Buhner protocol for Lyme. Now that I think about
it, I have probably been on the protocol for closer to 6-7 months, as I started near the beginning of summer 2017.
I have been using:
- Grapefruit Seed Extract
- Organic Cordyceps Mushrooms
- Cat's Claw
- Red Sage
- Japanese Knotweed Tincture
- Hydrolyzed Collagen
I also added:
- Organic Liquid Stevia Extract
- Organic Powdered Stevia Extract
It is my understanding that these are all of the herbs / products in the updated protocol that are recommended. I added the Stevia because I can get it at a low-cost (Trader Joe's carries both) and figured it couldn't hurt.
