So Dr. M R now has rifampin grouped together with tindamax and grapefruit seed extract as cyst busters in his updated lyme support protocol.

Does anyone have information in regards to rifampin being a cyst buster?

rocephin zith and tinda... that is assuming you don't have co-infections and your bacteria is evenly distributed. It hits extra cellular, intra cellular, and round bodies. Pulsing that regimen 2 weeks on 2 off will hit persisters as well.

Keep in mind most have co infections. This protocol isn't adequate for any co infection. Usually docs recommend treating co infections first before lyme, or all 3 at the same time a la Dr. J and Dr. H.
