I think I've asked this before but of course i forgot.

In my endless quest to treat lyme which I've never tested positive for, i have had either no effect from lyme herbs (knotweed, andrographis, cordyceps, skullcap, teasel, eleuthero, vit c, collagen) or have made me go nuts (cat's claw, red sage).

I kept trying to go back to the c.c. because Buhner says it's so important but darnit, it just screws me up. My dissociation gets blown out even more, colors distort further, memory declines, spaciness increases. Pretty much the whole gamut. These things happen within minutes of taking the herb, too. It's not like it's a slow process as i titrate up.

Anyone else have noticeable problems with this? I'm considering trying red sage again just to try something but i know the cat's claw is supremely important.

Maybe cat's claw just isn't working for you. If it seems to actually make you worse maybe you shouldn't worry about taking it.. either that or you are taking too much. I just can't tolerate japanese knotweed, so I'm just taking the cat's claw. I'm not sure how much it's doing though.

What worries me is that none of the other herbs seem to do anything so im sort of shrugging my shoulders wondering what to do

Aerose - So the reaction happens within 5 minutes of taking the CC?

...and is it just a drop or two?

Yah it's pretty much right away, i start to feel a bit off. I believe 5 drops is where i started. Tried low doses of the powder, too and had the same reaction
