If you see a LLMD who only uses prescriptions / abx, is it a bad idea to suggest the Buhner protocol in conjunction with his treatment plan?

My thinking is that assuming detox pathways are a GO (no herxing problems), it would only speed up the healing process.

But I also don’t want to come off the wrong way by suggesting this (perhaps leading to the thinking that his treatment plan is inferior). I just want the best.

My guess is if they only use abx they will be a little leery/out of their comfort zone giving advice on the herbs. You could open it up with a soft touch and ask them if they think it might be a good idea at some point if you introduced Buhner herbs to your protocol. I think they will probably just respond and say let's see how you do with the abx protocols first (which is kind of a stall but I would also understand the logic, try one thing at a time). I wouldn't introduce too much new stuff at once, and if you do introduce herbs I'd try to start with detox and supportive herbs for a while rather than antimicrobial herbs, especially if you are just starting treatment.

I have no idea how touchy your doctor is, I should think most doctors would be chill and open-minded with such a suggestion but then again you never know. Still, if your doctor can't handle such a question then they might not be the right practitioner to help you heal?

I've introduced herbs (including Buhner) in my regimen on my own whilst treating with an allopathic practitioner. I'm not saying I advise others to do that, but it hasn't been a problem for me. I try and research any new thing I'm going to take to gauge how hard it might be on the system and organs. The Buhner herbs have always seemed pretty safe to me, even in conjunction with many abx far as I can tell.

That's what I would think too. Thanks for the response.

I had excellent results with the Buhner protocol and didn't have access to anti-biotics so I can't advise on the two together. I would highly recommend getting Buhner's book and consulting with a Buhner herbalist. Above all else, if you can access your intuition/gut, ask your body, it knows how to recover. Energy testing is good for that.
In December of 2015. I thought I was dying. I began to research symptoms and began considering lyme in January of 2016 and the Horowitz Questionnaire convinced me to take immediate right action: changed diet, used Buhner recommended herbs, followed advice here. Today I feel GREAT and although I have some remaining symptoms, my health is basically back.
