Thank you both so much. Girlie, looking forward to hearing more whenever you get a chance.
Well, I see that goshawk has given you some good information.
Buhner Herbs is something you could add in to the antibiotics - make sure you start them at low dose (a few drops) and introduce them one at a time.
I would wait until you’ve taken the doxy for a couple weeks .
The probiotics must be taken daily.
Do not take them right before your antibiotics.
If your doxy is taken at dinner time - then take probiotics two hours after that.
You can also take another dose of probiotics a couple hours after your morning doxy.
Be prepared for a herx - which can be an increase in symptoms and/or new symptoms appearing.
This happens when the bacteria is killed, it creates endotoxins that flood your system causing inflammation.
Detoxing can help alleviate this.
- Drink lots of water
- squeeze Lemon juice into some glasses of water
- take Epsom salt baths
- dry brush your skin prior to baths and showers
- light exercise - even a short daily walk is good
- lymph massages
