Sometimes it did help me to switch herbals up since I was doing the protocols for over a year. I was concerned about resistance to the infections from long term use.
I also used cryptolepis and pulsed artemisinin again when I felt the Babesia symptoms coming back again.
I also was concerned that after a year and a half of the full Buhner bart and babesia protocols that I was just keeping things at bay .
Oh gosh yea thats a big concern for me too - herbs just keeping things at bay.
Buhner says that you can’t develop a resistance to herbs since they are so complex in nature. That may not apply to things like artemisinin which are a compund of artemisia. Not totally sure but that is what I thought!///////////////////////////////////////////////
Artemisinin should be pulsed - if not your intestines can produce an enzyme that renders the Art useless.
So after several days on - you should take a break for a few days
I think I took 500 mg 3x day
