Thanks for the response
What are the chances of fighting this infection off with a 100 mg dose of Doxy twice a day? I am newly diagnosed and have been put on ABX right away. The symptoms are just unbearable.
a feeling of dismay, hopelessness
phlegm, lot's of it
crawling, tingling sensations all over the body
It should be 200 mg twice daily of doxycycline. Make sure you take it with food...it's hard on the esophagus and stomach.
Okay - you do have more symptoms. You're going to need months, not weeks of treatment.
What you should also start is a good detoxing program. Start with one or two methods...and every few days add one.
some ideas to support your body/detox:
- Take a liver support supplement - eg Milk Thistle extract
- Take probiotics daily.
- Drink lots of water daily
- take epsom salt baths
- dry brush your skin prior to bathing
- light exercise - even if it's just a short walk, and stretching your muscles (yoga)
- make sure you're getting good sleep
