Claritin has a very hi MIC. In order for claritin to kill borrelia, you need to take 500 times the dose that is recommended for allergies. In that amount, Claritin is deadly, it will damage your heart muscle and then you will die.
I know, I read that too, just reporting what I felt after taking claritin while being on disulfiram. 20-30 minutes after taking a claritin 10mg tablet, I felt instant herxing. Matter of fact, I hadn't even taken disulfiram that day. I've tried claritin many times while being on antibiotic did nothing, no herxing whatsoever. Is there a chance claritin has some form of synergistic effect with disulfiram, just like copper has shown in studies at a low 2-5mg dose, is it possible...? lol
Stevia is good at killing borrelia but it is not systemic. Actually nobody knows if it gets absorbed in the blood stream, what is its half life, if it crosses the BBB , etc.. I never herxed on stevia and i used one of the brands that worked on Sapi's tests, alcohol tincture, and in really large amounts 70+ drops a day. No herx.
I know what they say and aware how herbal tinctures really don't have much of a chance getting absorbed well compared to compounded pharmaceutical drugs, but I'm just reporting what I feel after taking stevia "underneath the tongue," hold for 30 seconds then swallow. It's been known that putting a liquid underneath the tongue has better absorption.
I've tried all the different biofilm supplements and antibacterial tinctures, nothing worked for me, until I tried stevia with some of the persister cell antbiotics, as well as disulfiram. I suggest you keep an
open mind, as believe me, I've tried a lot of health supplements and 99.9% did nothing for me. Cats claw, GSE, absolutely no herxing or help! A crap load of money wasted!!! lol
As reported by John Hopkins and Dr. Sapi, Stevia is the best biofilm buster we have, just remember that.
Most llmd’s are not prescribing one antibiotic at low dose.
Dr J does prescribe 3 abx or 2 plus an antimalarial and has done this for many years.
Even with that - some people aren’t getting to remission.
So there’s Dapsone, Daraprim, Disulfram - are any of them showing results?
What about Pyrazinimide - wasn’t that being tried too?
A lot of LLMDs start off with a low dosage protocol because herxing can be so violent, they've ignored what some of the top lyme literate doctors use like Dr. B and Dr. H. I've seen it with my own eyes in Michigan and read it on blogs and forums, a lot of these so called LLMDs ignore ILADs antibiotic protocols and make their own up. The 3 supposed LLMDs Michigan did not adhere to the ILADs guidelines and in in the end, pulled me off of antibiotics and ditched me, even though they supposed to treat you till all symptoms are gone.
So regardless of what "you think" LLMDs are prescribing, just because Dr. J is prescribing, some start off with very low dosage and weak antibiotics like amoxicillin and doxycycline at single dosages, then work up to maybe two at a time. Not only for the herxing, but because they're afraid of a lawsuit and side effects. A lot of LLMDs aren't aggressive with antibiotics like Dr. H and Dr. B, sorry to say.
Didn't you say you're from another country Girlie, how would you know what every LLMD prescribes here in each state in America? lol
I'd like to live in the dream world where all the LLMDs are created equally, I know everyone likes to think that, lol, it's definitely not the case.
As I've said time and time again, don't compare what a top lyme literate doctor like D. J and D. H is prescribing to the lower LLMDs in other states. Fact of the matter is, these so called LLMDs aren't so lyme literate from my experience reading what other lyme patients are being prescribed on the internet.
