I’ll be interested to know how long we’d need to take disulfarim. What do you think Charlie? I know you mentioned 3 months so far.
I've been going on and off it for 3 months, as well as following up with a persister cell killer like pyramazide. So it's not like I've been on it long, considering I take long breaks, 2-3 weeks sometimes, after being on it for a week or two. I'm very cautious doing liver kidney detoxes as well as taking supporting supplements when I'm on.
My thought process was breaking up the biofilms with stevia tincture I use and waking up persister cells with disulfarim, then taking a few days off, then following up with pyramazide to kill the persister cells. I felt incredible after doing this, but fatigue still comes back after a month. But overall, I feel I've pasted a plateau because I'm not relapsing after being off antibiots.
Now I'm thinking I'll just take stevia and disulfarim, because I seem to just herx a lot just using disulfarim. Maybe add copper in the mix!
And as mpost said, maybe just taking it at a low dosage, taking it every other day, increasing the stevia, might be more beneficial. Then again, this may prevent it from penetrating the tissue effectively, there's a reason why a higher dosage must be taken. I looked at the cancer studies with this drug, they were taking higher dosages, but then again that's cancer.
Honestly, who knows how long you'll need to take it since everyone's body is different and everyone's a different stage of treatment.
2-3 years ago, I thought I was basically done with this disease, I took 7 months of all antbiotics, functioned pretty normally just taking rick simpson oil. Infection came back!!!
So unless you kill off a good portion of persister cells, as well as the biofilms, it'll keep coming back no matter what. That's what you're up against and that's why something like cure or the remissions terms shouldn't be thrown around lightly. I laugh at people Yolanda Hadid when she gets treatment with IVs then few days later says she's cured. Unless you've been off all antbiotics for a good 2 years and completely symptom free, which I feel a lot of people lie about
, to make them feel better, especially the herbal takers, you're basically full of it.
Best I've felt in my life is after taking these new drugs, people like Dr. H and John Hokins, Dr. Lewis, Dr. Sapi are the one's who've done the ground break working, regardless of what bs is being said on the forums and elsewhere.
id still want to see that mouse study published before i try it.
What scares the crap out of me mpost, the longer you have this infection in your body and exposure to borrelia in your brain, I suspect the more chance you have of contracting a deadlier autoimmune disease like Michael J Fox has, aka Parkinsons. Without a doubt his lyme caused his Parkinsons!
Or what other permanent diseases borrelia could possibly cause longterm, nerve damage, diabetes, organ damage, blindness, other autoimmune diseases etc... The longer you have this infection in your body, the more danger it can be. Yet you hear these naturopaths like Dr. Klinghardt saying he wants his patients living in harmony with this disease, then his patients repeat it on the forums, lol, like it's set it stone. It's amazing what your read on the forums after the years of dealing with this disease. I'll be glad when a quality treatment can come out and people like him can disappear forever with their nonsense and outrageous prices, taking advantage of people.
If you have a borrelia infection in your body, chances are you have it in your brain, regardless of where your symptoms are. I just had arthritis in my joints and fatigue for the most part, little did I know I had borrelia in my brain.
You guys can keep waiting, some can keep hoping that treating themselves that these over the counter herbals from Whole Foods and Better Health is going to help them, I'm a realist and have woken up in the healthcare system we live in. None of those herbs get past the brain barrier, nor do the penetrate tissue well, very little of them probably actually kill persister cells. This is why herbs and elements and plants are compounded in a lab to make them more potent. It amazes me people forget about
And longer you're on these traditional antbiotics like doxycycline mpost, more chances you have of cdiff or some other type of bacteria to become resistant in your body. Most can't come off these antbiotics for more than a few weeks, because they're infection comes ravaging back. So if you can't take long breaks off the traditional antibiotics, how do you keep your liver and kidneys health mpost? Regardless of what your bloodwork says... There's professional football players that keep their liver enzymes down and take pain pills for years, but still end up killing their kidneys and liver years later. Blood work isn't a for sure thing.
Even if the mouse studies get published mpost, that's if they ever are made public, considering whoever owns this drug has gold mine in front of them, they may not want them published!!! It could take 2-3 years or longer for lyme literate physicians to start using the drug. I've been through these doctors, many are so set in their ways and will only treat with the antibiotics they want to treat you with.
I'm sure Dr. H will start treating with the drug soon, but most can't afford his prices or drive to New York.
This Curza Drug was in second stage trials 3 years ago, where's it now? It's already been shown to work... I don't have patience for this crap, I plan to live my life, like I'm doing and keep working. If I had abided by the rules and laws in this country, even followed what some of the LLMDs in Michigan said to do, I'd still be up craps creek and living off the street.
But hey, lets give the green light on a new lyme vaccine, who gives a crap about
the side effects. lol And keep pumping people full of opioids, those pain drugs are completely safe...
Look at the recent published studies on persister cells with Lyme, little has changed with treatment from the CDC or ILADs, they got a lyme group together, that's great and all. But I'm waiting for change with the treatment policy from both the CDC and ILADs on what drugs to treat for persister cells....
