What type of docs do I look for to treat with herbs only? I've been reading Bulhners (sp?) Unlocking lyme and I wrote down a bunch of supplements. I'm not willing to do his whole protocol. Dont have that money unfortunately. Is there anyone who can guide me through some herbs and where to start. Currently taking vitamin d, tumeric, CQ10, alpha lipoic acid, magnesium, calcium and zinc blend and a probiotic. I've been doing lemon water and the epsom salt bath. Suspect lyme and bartonella.

Hi Nellie2929,

You may want to look for a herbalist or Natropath that is Lyme Literate.

Stephen Buhner lists some herbalist that he recommends in his book, some of them do phone consultations for a fee.

For Lyme: Andropgraphis, Japanese knot weed and Cats claw tomentosa are a few important ones.

For Bartonella: Houttuynia, Sida acuta and Japanese knotweed again these are just part of the protocols but important.

All herbals are potent medicine and you should always check for side effects and contradictions.

You should start with only one herbal at a time and take only one or two drops of the tincture a day to see how you react.

That way if you have an allergic reaction or issues, you will know which herbal caused it.

If one does ok on each herbal you slowly increase the drops. Not everyone needs the full recommended doses.

I am no medical expert so please do good research on herbals.

Take care and I wish you the best of healing.

I was also going to mention one of Buhners recommended herbalists - there may be an older thread with a list of them - I’ll do a search for one

Hi Nellie2929,

You are taking some good supplements.

I have lyme, Bartonella, and Babesia.

I'm following Dr. Jernigan's book because I also don't have the money for expensive treatments. I take 2 of his herbal remedies that cost about $50 each. The book costs about $25 plus shipping. And I follow the Rau diet from the book"The Swiss Secret" that Dr. Jernigan also recommends in his book.

I read the book, started on the diet, began taking Neuro Antitox II one week before taking Lymogen. Those are the 2 remedies for me. (I also read in his book that Molybdenum helps for people sensitive to alcohol so I added that and I take it 1st thing before the Neuro Antitox II.)

I've been doing this since last Monday with very good results. No herxing for me on this treatment to date. Most of the time I feel good which is a big improvement over what my life was like before.

If you're interested, this is Dr. Jernigan's blogspot:
davidjernigan.blogspot.com

His info specifically about lyme:
hansacenter.com/lyme-disease/

His clinic where I ordered the book and remedies:
hansacenter.com

I'll be happy to help any way I can. Pay it forward.
