Hi Everyone,

I’m really hoping you can help with a problem i’ve been having for a while, I have a lot of trouble getting on the supplements i’ve been prescribed by my nutritionist.
Over the last year i’ve only managed to get on 5 of the 9 supplements. The ones i’ve very slowly got on are slippery elm, colostrum, vitamin c, epa fish l and acidophilus, I had trouble getting on all of them and had to build up over months and months, but now none of these effect me. The ones I have tried many times to get on but can’t tolerate even at a pinch are zinc piccolonate, enzymes, mag/calcium and a Thorne multi. Also thrown into the mix to help were glutathione (couldn’t tolerate) and molybendum (couldn’t tolerate) I am also very affected by caffeine, the effects last hours, so wondering if anyone else has trouble like this? It means I can’t get on anything new so can’t take clay/charcoal to detox so my herxes are really bad.
I’m fine with paracetamol, neurofen, antihistamines, asthma drugs etc, i’ve taken these for a long time though. Any advice would be amazing

Have been thoroughly tested by a knowledgeable doctor for histamine issues and mast cell issues?

Also, have you had any genetic testing for methylation issues? That may be a factor as well.

Hi Chloe, Im also struggling to get up to the correct dose on herbals they make me herx really bad too, even caffeine like you said makes me feel weird. Strangely Ive tollerated antibiotics much better and have made decent progress in a few months , maybe you would be better of finding a LLMD and try this approach.

Also the supplements you have mantioned as far as im aware wont do much for lyme on their own. If you want to take the herbal approach look up Buhner or Cowdens protocol these have helped many people on here.

I buy all my herbs from a UK supplier called Napiers they have everything you need in one place
