As part of my babesia treatment, i took artemesia anua for 3 months and added cryptolepsis and sida acuta and been taking it for 3+ months. Can you please tell me how long do i need to take these to complete the treatment? appreciate your inputs

I believe the minimum to treat babesia is 4-5 months because treatment should continue for one month past the life of the red blood cell.

But, if you're having babesia symptoms...you need to continue longer.

Thank You Girlie for your response. The symptoms which i suspected from Babesia were air hunger/nausea which i had 6 months ago and i have not had them since then.

My main symptoms are head pressure/inflammation in the head. I am not sure which one (Lyme/Bart/Bab) causing it. i have not been able to find any solution for my head pressure. Please let me know i can try anything for the relief from this issue. I heard people say it can be caused by any of them. i am taking herbals for all of them together.

As part of babesia treatment, I started Artemesia Anua on full dose from 9/30/2017 until around 2nd week of Jan 18. And i started Cryptolepsis and Sida on full dose from 11/17/17 until now. Considering my assumption that i do not have any active babesia symptoms and almost treated for 5 months, i am wondering if i can stop taking cryptolepsis. I will continue with Sida as its part of my Bart protocol.

Appreciate your inputs

Shouldn't you be pulsing the artemesia ? Or am I confusing it with another derivative?

I took artemesia anua which is whole herb and not required to pulse. If it is Artemesin, you need to pulse. That's what i have learned from the forums smile

No, not the whole herb...just Artemisinin needs to be pulsed.

head pressure/inflammation can definitely be babesia. That's one of my babs symptoms. (I believe it to be Babs. It really flared on the Mepron...and then has gotten somewhat better since ending that treatment.)

I would not stop your Babesia treatment yet.

I believe kudzu root helped my head pressure and brain inflammation. I've had less head symptoms since added it to my protocol.
