I'm a little confused. How do we make any progress on such low doses ? Doesnt bartonella repopulate quickly? Also, I'm not taking green tea extract but I've heard that it can inhibits the reonoculation ofb microti. I don't take it due to adrenal fatigue issues and stimulating them further is not a good idea for me. Is it essential to the protocol?
You can slowly titrate up to higher doses...but if you start out on high doses...you're liable to have a very strong herx...so it's best to ease into it.
No, Bartonella doesn't replicate quickly. I've read a few different things - one being 4-5 days and another one was a week.
(I think most bacteria replicate daily)
Not everyone does the green tea.
