Yeah, I'd rather not go back to pharmaceuticals if i don't have to.
I will look into adding these herbs into my protocol. I forgot to mention that I was having cardiovascular/heart symptoms, went through the whole stress test/echo/ekg and they found nothing. I've been having heart palpitations from exercise, as well as during bouts of anxiety, and the anxiety is much more frequent than before as I was never really a nervous person before. Hopefully the Hawthorne will help with that.
Hawthorn is what I think they call an adaptogenic herb for the heart. However, I don't know that you will notice any symptom relief from it. Bartonella and babesia can cause a lot of cardiac symptoms. Treating those infections is the best way to get rid of those symptoms.
You may want to get Buhner's books on Healing Lyme 2nd edition and his 2 books on coinfections that have the full protocols in them. I find the books very helpful.
