I have a pile of them...some unopened...and others' opened.

I know we can't advertise to give them away here...but was just wondering what you all do with them?
I don't have a local support group where I could ask if anyone wants them.



I wish I could mail them to someone. smilewinkgrin

- 2 Unopened bottles- Woodland Essence Houttuynia tinctures.

- unopened - KI Immune Defense and Energy Formula - contains Astragalus, Shiitake, Olive leaf

- opened - Purica Red Reishi 'beyond stress relief' - maybe a couple capsules used...or not at all.

- opened - bottle of Green Dragon Botanicals Cat's Claw capsules - maybe a few caps missing (or none)

- Unopened - 2 bottles of Liv H17 - some kind of liver support.

- opened - L-Arginine - maybe half a bottle left (capsules)

- opened - Natural Factors Wild Pacific Salmon oil - 210 capsules - almost full bottle.

I'm sure I'll find more if I keep looking...

EDIT to add:

opened Natural Factors - Phosphatidyl Choline - 90 soft gels (almost full bottle)

I'd be interested in the Houtty and Cat's Claw.

I've brought many of my expired/unwanted medications and supplements to a local Walgreens Pharmacy that has a Medication Disposal Kiosk.

"To dispose of prescription drugs not labeled to be flushed, select Walgreens locations have installed safe medication disposal kiosks. Individuals can safely and conveniently dispose of their unwanted, unused or expired medications at no cost. Simply bring them to a Walgreens with a safe disposal kiosk and deposit the medication in the kiosk—much like dropping a letter into a mailbox. The kiosks are available during regular pharmacy hours and are located in most states and Washington DC. The types of medications accepted include prescriptions, prescription and over the counter ointments and creams, liquids, lotions, pet medications, prescription patches, over-the-counter medications and vitamins. Certain medications are not accepted at the kiosks including needles, inhalers, aerosol cans, hydrogen peroxide, thermometers, and illicit drugs. To find a kiosk in your area, please visit our Store Locator."

Rather than tossing any non-expired supplements, it would be nice if someone else could benefit from them. I mean, if that were allowed. Which, as Girlie already disclaimed, it's not. wink

Thanks for that Dude. Yah, I'd rather not dispose them.

I do. I was thinking of waiting a bit to make sure I don’t use them, then finding a FB group OR putting them on eBay then advertising them on a group for Lymies- they will understand why I have a bottle of stuff with one dose missing and maybe be willing to trust me enough to buy an open bottle at a deep discount.

Prescriptions- like a whole bottle of precious Mepron- are much harder to part with
Lyme, Babesia, Bartonella. Symptoms began 5/2016, didn't start treatment until 9/2016. Slow but steady recovery.

I've found that I've come back around and used many of them or I possibly will down the road.

Are you truly sure you won't ever use Hout again? Even in remission?

I thought about it jrpsf - but it if I do take Houttuynia again..it will most likely be a year or longer before I do.
I'm committed to the protocol now with Dr. J and at this point I can't see adding anything more except a few support supplements...as the protocol has me taking a lot of stuff.

If I decide to take Houtt down the road...I'll just buy it again...I'd like someone who can use it in the short-term to benefit .


I am keeping a ton of other 'stuff'...believe me I've got so much in my cupboard. I just found my husband rooting around in there - he's somewhat of a pack rat...so I gotta act quick before he tells me not to get rid of it. tongue


I will be giving them away...not selling them.
