Good morning,
I am new to the site as my daughter was just diagnose with Lyme at 16 years of age. To begin with a little back ground info, she has had joint pain for a few years now, but I thought it was from training in athletics and growing pains. In December 2017, she got the flu and her symptoms went crazy!! After researching her symptoms and several blood test and dr apps later and no answers, my gut told me Lyme. I have since taken her to a LLMD where he ran more blood test and diagnosed her with Lyme based on her symptoms. We are due to get her test results back any day now. LLMD went ahead and put her on Flagyl and Doxycyclne. Three days after stopping Flagyl and two days after starting Doxy, she started herxing, which was horrible! My question is, is there any natural herbs that I can give her to help beat this? She is taking activated charcoal to help detox, melatonin to help sleep since insurance will not pay for Lunesta, cats claw and milk thistle for liver health, and probiotics. She is extremely fatigued and constantly has a headache that no meds will touch. I have currently taken her off of Doxy for a week, but will have her start back Sunday at a lower dose.

Hi Tburd,
Welcome to the community!

I​f ​you haven't ​yet​,​​​​ it would be helpful for you to start with reading through the thread at the top of the forum titled,"New to Lyme?...Start here!!", as​​ ​​it is packed ​​full of ​​important information​​, symptom lists, helpful links and pdf's, how to detox when one has these infections, information on probiotics and much more.​​ ​​​​And, here's another good place to find helpful detoxing rout​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ines​​:​​​​​​ ​www.tiredoflyme.com/detox-methods.html​

Detoxing is just as important as the treatments are, so I would encourage you to get her to increase her detoxing right away.

Keep asking questions!! That's how we can best help you and your daughter!

fyi 400 mg/day doxy is minimal dose to kill lyme, anything less than that is pointless and doing more harm than good.
