Do many of you not take mag supplements because of the thought (Dr. K) that it builds biofilm?
No - I've not heard that magnesium builds biofilm....Both my LLND that was first treating me and now Dr. J have told me it's fine to take magnesium. In fact my LLND told me I SHOULD.
I read somewhere that magnesium or manganese feeds lyme in general (can't remember which one) - but we can't starve our body from those essential minerals.
Although, I don't supplement the manganese.
I don't agree with everything Dr. K says/writes anyway...
