Thanks, but for him to say that it's completely untrue is a little misleading as it suggests that antibiotics can cross the BBB easily and are very effective. Buhner's point is that antibiotics are very poor at crossing the BBB.
From my notes from Healing Lyme 2nd Edition, I have "The subtle bacterial manipulations that occur in the brain and central nervous system are rarely amenable to pharmaceuticals."
So at the very least this is a contradiction here between a LLMD and Buhner. A more detailed description from Buhner would be nice. Wish I could contact him.
Well, Dr. J in an interview basically said the same thing. I think his words about
them not crossing blood/brain barrier were "it's a misnomer"
He says they do get into the brain.
...how do you think all the people that are treated by abx are getting rid of their brain symptoms from neurolyme?
They are effective - since people are getting better with them.
I'm taking antibiotics...and I've reduced my brain symptoms a lot.
