There is any evidence that lyme can become resistant to abx? I'm not talking about persisters. And if there is... pulse therapy can become it more resistance?

I thought the same at first but quickly realized that they just don't seem to work, for me at least. I only used doxy and something else but i read enough accounts online to see that it's definitely not 100% effective.

I gave up on abx and 2 drs and went au naturale and I feel pretty darn good. I knew from the get go that I had a serious infection so I started treating early than some who couldn't pinpoint what caused the illness. That might make a difference in herbs working for me.

There are many who say the opposite about abx and herbs so don't take my word for it. I hope you get the right mix to get you feeling better soon!

I believe because these infections are rather slow replicating...they aren't as susceptible to development of resistant. (days to weeks replication)

But, taking 2 or more abx at once is supposed to help prevent resistance.
