Okay. So I've been on Buhner's protocols since June. I saw my Lyme doctor Friday. She's pushing me to try Samento and Banderol and says "it busts biofilm."
I've searched through some of the posts on this. Here's one: /www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=30&m=3099107
I'm already taking Cat's Claw. Samento is TOA-free cat's claw. I'm well aware of the TOA-free controversy and lean toward Buhner's assessment, as well as Raintree's found here: www.rain-tree.com/toa-poa-article.htm
. Raintree doesn't name the other brands they are referring to, but I'm assuming at least one of them is Samento. Raintree points out one version has a very low dose per capsule, so whichever one that is couldn't be very potent, IMO.
I found this study, which I assume is why the doctor believes these bust biofilm. /www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4971593/
Should I stop using whole herb cat's claw and instead take Samento and Banderol? Are they really better than following Buhner's protocol?
Should I keep taking my cat's claw and just add Banderol?
Why would these be any better at breaking biofilm than the various herbs in Buhner's protocols?
